Even though we have to be physically apart, we can still celebrate the achievements of our graduating students, and all that they have accomplished together.
Watch these special videos celebrating the Class of 2020, with congratulatory messages from students, faculty and staff, including greetings from BC Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and 2019 SFU Honorary Degree recipient Timothy Caulfield.
Congratulations Faculty of Health Sciences graduates of 2020! I am sorry that we can’t celebrate in-person at this time, but remember, this significant milestone belongs to you and those who have supported you.
While you may be moving into an uncharted future, there is an old saying – “never let a good crisis go to waste.” I am proud that your interdisciplinary training in FHS provides deep knowledge in various areas, from immunology and virology to epidemiology and social inequities in health.
So, take your health sciences knowledge into the world, change it for the better, keep a commitment to social justice and remember who the real heroes are when it really matters.
Dean, Faculty of Health Sciences
