Faculty & staff

Every year, hundreds of staff and faculty lend their time to make convocation a success.

Academic procession

Faculty, librarians, senior staff, faculty emeriti and UVic honorary degree recipients are invited to join the academic procession on stage at one or more of the ceremonies.

PhD supervisors

Are you a supervisor of a PhD graduate attending convocation? You play an important role in their convocation day. As their supervisor you attend convocation, accompany them throughout the ceremony and place a hood over their head during the conferral of degrees.

Supervisor invitations to attend convocation are emailed by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The email includes instructions about how to register and what to expect on the day of the ceremony.
