Convocation Volunteerism | Retirees Association

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Twice a year the University of Waterloo comes together to celebrate the milestone occasion of Convocation. Each June and October, we prepare a new cohort of Waterloo students to go into the world as Alumni, and to celebrate their academic, social, and co-operative education achievements over their many years at this great institution. It is a tremendously special time of year for the entire Waterloo community.

The University is recruiting new volunteers who would like to participate in June convocation.  There are twelve ceremonies, June 12-16, 2018.  Retirees are invited to participate and consider taking part in the ceremonies in roles such as faculty robing room supervisor, marshal, and student procession hooder. 

New volunteers are asked to sign up online no later than April 30, 2018.
