The University of Windsor has announced that Spring 2020 convocation ceremonies will be postponed in order to deal with the spread of COVID-19 and the need to support social distancing strategies.

“Convocation is a very special time for the entire university community,” said Chancellor Mary Jo Haddad . “Though we are all disappointed we can’t celebrate our students’ achievements in the usual way, please know that your health and safety is our primary decision-making driver during these unprecedented times.”

Spring degrees will be awarded in absentia for those eligible students who have applied to graduate. Senate is expected to approve eligible candidates at its May 22nd, 2020 meeting. The Office of the Registrar will then begin to courier diplomas to graduates.

In the coming months, once plans for the Fall convocation ceremonies are finalized, the Office of the Registrar will reach out to invite Spring graduands and their families to participate in the Fall ceremonies. All graduating students will have an opportunity to celebrate and be recognized as part of these ceremonies.
