ONLINE ONLY – UBC Class of 2020 Spring Graduation
Presented by the UBC Ceremonies and Events
Let’s celebrate the Class of 2020! This virtual ceremony celebrates the very real accomplishments of UBC graduates. While we may not be gathering in person, we stand with our graduates in spirit, take pride in their achievements and share their joy.
- Vancouver Campus: June 17, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.
- Okanagan Campus: June 17, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.
Family and friends will be able to view the virtual ceremonies from around the world at virtualgraduation.ubc.ca. You may also watch the ceremony on YouTube, Facebook or Panopto, a platform that is accessible from many countries.
Incorporating traditions from UBC’s in-person ceremony, Chancellor Lindsay Gordon will preside over the virtual ceremony. UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Santa J. Ono will address the Class of 2020 live, dressed in full academic regalia. While graduates may not be able to shake the President’s hand on-stage, they will have an opportunity to take a selfie with him—virtually, of course. Another highlight of the 45-minute ceremony will be the keynote address from Canadian icon and comedian Rick Mercer, who was a 2010 UBC honorary degree recipient.
