Chancellor's installation opens convocation

Shelagh Rogers became the university's 11th chancellor at the start of the calendar year, but it becomes official when she is installed in office at the outset of spring convocation ceremonies.

Rogers, a nationally respected CBC radio journalist, will take her oath from Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon. Chancellor emeritus Murray Farmer will invest Rogers in her ceremonial robes while delegates from other universities will be on stage to witness the installation.

Rogers hosts and produces CBC radio’s The Next Chapter, a weekly program about Canadian writers and songwriters. She is an officer of the Order of Canada for her support of Canadian culture and for her volunteer efforts for mental health and literacy. She is also an honorary witness for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
