Don Cumming served as Acting Vice-President (Advancement) from December 2005 to February 2006, at which time Dianne Lister became Vice-President (Advancement and External Relations), a position she held until 2011.

Convocation Ceremonies at Trent from 1960s to 2007 (in date order)

Contains documents and correspondence related to individual ceremonies. Please note that some years are not included.

The first Convocation was held on Friday 2nd June, 1967 and at that ceremony the Hon. Leslie Frost was installed as Chancellor. The first Fall Convocation was held in the Fall of 1972 and Fall Convocations lasted up to and including Fall 1991. The Spring Convocations of 1988 saw for the first time two ceremonies held  in one day and this continued until 2003. The Spring 2004 Convocations were spread over 2 days and the Spring 2007 Convocation was spread over 3 days. Since then the number of days for Convocations during “Convocation week” has steadily increased

Early on, students were initially grouped alphabetically by their last names according to their degree -  Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts (Honours) and Bachelor of Science (Honours). Later added were sub-groupings by Colleges; and even later some specialized degrees were separated out, e.g. Bachelor of Nursing.
