Convocation June 2023

We are excited to announce that convocation will take place from June 5-9, 2023 at the Burnaby Campus.
More details and the ceremony schedule will be announced this spring.

Congratulations to the class of October 2022!

Thank you for celebrating with us! Watch the ceremonies on-demand and relive your special day.

SFU respectfully acknowledges that convocation is hosted and filmed on the traditional, unceded and continuously occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples. There is a great amount of work to be done towards reconciliation and systemic decolonization within the university. We are committed to educating ourselves and others, respectfully including Indigenous practices, protocols and ceremony into convocation, and continuing to build meaningful relationships with Indigenous peoples across these lands.
