Grebel Convocation update:

After much consideration and consultation, it has been decided that Grebel’s Spring Convocation event will be held in person at a later date. The tentative date is currently October 25, 2020. Details will be released when they are available. 

And congratulations to Briar Hunter, 2020 undergraduate valdectorian!


Hello (potential) Grads!

You have been part of the Grebel community in some capacity over the course of your degree. Our records indicate that you are close to graduation! For this reason, we want to seize the opportunity to celebrate your achievement with you! We do this at our own Grebel Convocation celebration event (not meant to replace uWaterloo's formal convocation). This afternoon event includes a gathering in the Humanities Theatre for graduates, family and friends followed by a reception back at Grebel.

Two things will help with our planning and preparation…

Firstly, we are collecting information about our graduates. This information ensures that you will be listed in the program and moves you from the status of being a current student to an alumna (complete with perks of attending alumni events, etc). If you have or are completing your studies in Fall 2019, Winter 2020, Spring 2020 or Fall 2020, we would like to know. Please fill in the Convocation Form regardless of whether you plan to participate in Grebel’s Convocation event.

Secondly, if you do plan to participate in Grebel’s Convocation event, it will take place on April 19, 2020 at 2:00 pm in the Humanities Theatre in Hagey Hall. (New date and time yet to be confirmed) Please indicate on the Convocation form whether you plan to attend this event.

We will be sending out Convocation invitations on your behalf. Please indicate on the Convocation Form whom you would like us to invite. If you'd like to send out a 'save the date' to friends and family, you may use the template on this 'Save the date' webpage.



To be considered for or to participate in the selection of Grebel's 2020 undergraduate Valedictorian, you must submit Grebel's Convocation form by March 8. On March 9, you will be notified of participating undergrads for the purpose of nominating a valedictorian. Nominations will close on March 10.

Further instructions about the day will follow in early April for those choosing to participate in this celebration of achievement.

If someone you know is planning to graduate and they haven’t received an email from Pam Bartel (Residence/Associate); Claudia Van Decker (Music), Rachel Reist (PACS), Seth Ratzlaff (MPACS) or Birgit Moscinski or Rebekah Smoot-Enns (MTS), have them contact their respective Administrative Assistant or let one of us know to contact them.
