Celebrate SFU's virtual June Convocation 2021
We are proud of our graduands.
In the lead-up to our virtual June Convocation 2021 we'll be sharing stories from across our eight faculties about some of our amazing graduands.
SFU will host eight virtual convocation ceremonies on June 24, 25, 28 and 29. Be sure to check-out our Convocation website for more details, including schedules for ceremonies and faculty celebrations, as well as virtual celebration tools.
Also, be sure to tag your social posts #MySFUGrad, so that we can help you celebrate.
