Ceremony Information for VIU Employees
Participating in the convocation ceremony is a great way to celebrate the students' successes with them. You have spent a lot of time with these students in classes, labs, and practica and the students wish to share in this momentous achievement with their instructors.
VIU Employees have three options to participate in the ceremony:
- Participate in the ceremony as a member of the faculty procession
- Participate in the ceremony as a marshal
- Watch the ceremony from the audience
All faculty and staff who are attending the convocation ceremonies as a member of the faculty procession or as a marshal must wear regalia. If you do not have a set of your own, you can rent regalia from the Campus Store.
If you are unable to attend the convocation ceremony but wish to celebrate your students' achievements with them, a reception is held after each ceremony and we strongly encourage you to attend. Please visit www.viu.ca/convocation/receptions.asp for more information.
If you have any questions about convocation please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (250) 753-3245 local 2234.
