U of R Spring Convocation to be held virtually

The University of Regina has confirmed to its students that their Spring Convocation will be held virtually.

The event was scheduled to take place in person June 9th-11th.

The school says COVID-19 remains a significant threat in the community, and even with vaccines being administered, it is unlikely health guidelines will change significantly in the next few months.

Plans for the celebration include a video and graduation package that will contain a commemorative program as well as the graduate’s degree, diploma, or certificate. Three honorary degree recipients will also be celebrated.

The U of R says more information will be sent to grads in the coming weeks.
