Call for Student Voices for the spring graduation ceremony

With convocation fast approaching, we know this is an exciting time for graduating students and everyone who supported their journey. As part of the celebration students can share a message through the Student Voices video project.

Earlier this week, all students who are eligible to graduate were sent an invitation to participate.  

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to speak to fellow graduates, both at the ceremony and through the live-stream broadcast of convocation.

What are the details that you (as a staff or faculty member) need to know? It's easy. Students just need to record a short video of and send it to us. Selected message will be shared in a video collage during the spring convocation ceremonies. All video submissions will be shared via the university’s YouTube channel.  Those looking for inspiration can check out last year’s videoStudent Voices will
