UWindsor employees invited to share in celebrations of graduation

The highlight of the academic year, Convocation is the culmination of students’ UWindsor experience and a celebration of their academic success.

Faculty and staff members not otherwise involved can help to make the occasion memorable for graduates and their guests by joining the Volunteer at Convocation program. A joint project of the Department of Human Resources and the Office of the Registrar, it recruits employees to greet guests, usher them to their seats, and answer any questions.

Spring Convocation will be held in 10 sessions, May 28 to June 1 in the St. Denis Centre. To participate, sign up online by May 16. Find more information, including the sign-up form, on the Volunteer at Convocation website.

Another opportunity is to help out at the Alumni Association’s framing booth, which secures grads’ new diplomas and gets them ready for proud display. Learn how you can join this team; contact Rob Janisse, co-ordinator of special projects in the alumni office, at 519-253-3000, ext. 4055, or
