UPDATE REGARDING UBC GRADUATION
In response to the evolving nature of COVID-19, and provincial directives regarding events and mass gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the in-person Spring 2020 Graduation ceremonies until it is safe to bring our communities together again. We will also hold a virtual graduation ceremony online. Planning for both the traditional and virtual ceremonies is underway; we will provide updates on this website as details, format, date and time, are confirmed.
