Mask Information for Convocation
Masks will be welcome but optional for convocation ceremonies at Trent Durham June 2 and on our Peterborough campus June 6 - 14, 2022. We respect the decision of students and their guests with regard to their choice on masking for these days of achievement and celebration.
As always, the University continues to monitor conditions and will advise our campus communities of any changes to plans. If you are feeling unwell, please do not come to campus.
Trent University is pleased to announce in-person convocation celebrations for alumni who were recognized virtually through Grad from Your Pad events. The in-person convocation will be held at the Tribute Communities Centre for all Durham GTA graduates, including Master of Management graduates, on June 2 at 10:00 a.m. Alumni who graduated between Fall 2019 and Spring 2021, together with their guests, are invited to attend these ceremonies.
These ceremonies will not be organized by faculty, degree or year. Alums will be given the exciting opportunity to celebrate with their friends, regardless of their majors. Traditional elements like an academic procession and crossing the stage in regalia will still be included.
