Dominic Barton, Chancellor of the University of Waterloo, requests the honour of your presence in celebrating our one hundred and twenty third convocation for the conferment of degrees in a special live, online ceremony. The University of Waterloo is proud to honour the many accomplishments of our 2021 Faculty of Environment graduates and will mark this milestone with a virtual convocation ceremony.

What to expect
Graduates will hear from the University of Waterloo Chancellor, President, Provost and your Dean, Jean Andrey. Degrees will be virtually conferred, and a presentation of graduate names will be showcased on-screen.  Special awards and honours will be presented, and the audience will hear an address from the class of 2021 valedictorian. The ceremony will take 30-45 minutes.
