Faculty invited to confirm participation in fall convocation

Queen’s faculty members have until Tuesday, Nov. 7 to reserve regalia to participate in the academic processions during this fall’s convocation ceremonies.

“The significance of convocation cannot be overstated,” says Brent Cameron, Convocation and Communications Administrator, Office of the University Registrar. “It is an opportunity to honour all the hard work, dedication and sacrifice over the years that has led to this achievement. For so many, this has been a goal that predates their time with us. The presence of those who helped our graduates get to this moment only adds to its significance.”

Fall convocation includes six ceremonies held from Tuesday, Nov. 14 to Thursday, Nov. 16. Faculty members who are Queen's graduates can confirm their participation in one or more of the academic processions and reserve regalia by filling out an online form. Members of the academic procession who are not Queen’s graduates must make their own arrangements for hoods; however, they may reserve a black gown and confirm their participation online.

Faculty members can pick up their regalia 30 minutes prior to each ceremony in Room 209, Kingston Hall. Those not requiring regalia can still confirm their attendance in the period leading up to the ceremonies after the Nov. 7 deadline for booking regalia.

For more information about convocation, including the department and faculty breakdown for the six ceremonies, visit the University Registrar website.
