Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff participation

Memorial University’s 2021 convocation ceremonies will proceed in person this fall. We are looking forward to welcoming our graduands and honorees to the stage. However, just as fall 2021 is a transitional semester for current students, the fall convocation ceremonies will be slightly different to align with COVID-19 restrictions.

While we appreciate your involvement in convocations past, participation in this fall’s convocation ceremonies is restricted to ensure reduced density and adhere to public health guidelines and health and safety plans. Faculty, staff and community guests, except those invited to attend because they have an active role in the ceremonies, can watch the convocation livestream of the four sessions on Oct. 21 and 22.

We very much look forward to expanding involvement in convocation events when public health restrictions are lifted.

Volunteer Opportunities 

The Convocation team are always looking for volunteers to help the day run smoothly. The time commitment for each session is about an hour and a half. To express interest in volunteering, please email convocation@mun.ca
