Convocation and Installation signal new beginnings

Congratulations to the newest members of our alumni family – the graduates of UNB’s Fall Convocation Ceremonies on October 17 and 18. Degrees were awarded to graduates on both campuses in the faculties of arts, business, law, science, engineering, forestry and environmental management, management, kinesiology, nursing, computer science, education, and Renaissance College. We are proud of the accomplishments of our graduates and look forward to seeing the positive impact they will have on communities around the world as UNB alumni.

It was a true honour to share the stage with those graduates, faculty, staff, students, alumni, special guests, government representatives, and our Lieutenant-Governor as I was installed as President of UNB. I doubt there are many university presidents and vice-chancellors in the world who have the honour of being installed twice. I was deeply humbled to be formally welcomed to the university and appreciated the many kind words provided and to have experienced this special event with our graduating students. I am grateful to all those who worked hard to make these two special days unforgettable.
