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.

June 2022 honorary degree recipients

At the Convocation June 2022 ceremonies, SFU will confer honorary degrees on seven distinguished individuals, including visionary leaders in academia, law and politics, world-renowned writers, conservationists and photographers, and inspiring changemakers in the healthcare industry.
