Convocation 2020 dates and locations
There are exciting changes coming to Athabasca University’s 2020 Convocation celebrations!
We will hold Convocation in Athabasca on September 18, 2020, as opposed to the usual June timing, and will hold the event on one day rather than spread over two. The event will still be held at the Athabasca Regional Multiplex, as it has been in the past.
This will help us to mitigate some of the challenges with holding Convocation in Athabasca in June, including the threat of wildfires that required us to relocate our Convocation event to Red Deer in 2019.
We will also host an additional Convocation celebration this year at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on October 2, 2020, as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.
We have many students in Eastern Canada and hosting a Convocation event in Toronto will allow more of our learners and alumni to join us to celebrate how far we have come in 50 years, and to look forward to what we will accomplish in the next 50.
As more information about schedules becomes available, we will update our Convocation 2020 website so stay tuned!
