October 2022 ceremony schedules

This October we are holding four in-person convocation ceremonies at the Burnaby campus. 

See schedule }

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.

October 2022 honorary degree recipients

At the Convocation October 2022 ceremonies, SFU will confer honorary degrees on four distinguished individuals, including a celebrated business leader and lawyer, and three world-renowned writers who have contributed to our collective understanding of trans rights, racism and the trauma faced by residential school survivors.
