Grads invited to personalize cyber Convocation ceremony

Registrar Alice Miller has emailed an invitation to all 2020 graduands to submit an image and message that will allow them to put a stamp on the University’s first-ever virtual Convocation, scheduled to be live-streamed in 13 sessions Oct. 14 to 17.

“This year, students will be able to upload a photo and attach a message that will be displayed in an online slideshow as their names are read,” says Miller. “We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of the newest cohort of our alumni with their family and friends.”

Each of the eligible grads has received an email with a unique link to a site that will allow them to create their personalized slide. That process must be completed by 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 21, to be included in the Convocation ceremonies.

Miller hopes that faculty and staff will assist in getting the message out.

“We are on a very short timeline,” she says. “Please help by alerting any grads you know to check their UWindsor email account and follow the steps to participate in this unprecedented endeavour.”
