The Faculty of Health congratulated 301 new graduating students at the fall 2023 convocation ceremony this past Friday, comprising 84 undergraduates, 207 Master’s and seven PhDs. The ceremony opened and closed with Indigenous Knowledge Keeper Myeengun Henry, who was joined by the Cedar Hill Singers at the outset.

Recent graduate Dr. Margaret Mutumba addressed the convocating students at the joint Faculty of Health and Science ceremony, leaving them with supportive messages and two pieces of advice. The first comes from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” The second is from her homeland, Buganda Kingdom. It says, “Akozesa emikono gyombi, talemwa kulya,” meaning, “They who work with both hands, who work hard, who give it 100 per cent and keep trying in the face of adversity, cannot fail to succeed.”

Congratulations to the fall Class of ’23!
