Faculty Instructions

Due to the necessary response to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) the Convocation Ceremonies will be held virtually in order to adhere to guidelines from the federal and provincial health authorities.

For the Class of 2020 & 2021, we are committed to holding a face-to-face ceremony once holding large events is deemed safe. You can read the most recent statement issued by UNBC’s Interim President here: Convocation Update

Congratulations Videos

Graduating students gave us their feedback. Since it is not possible at this time for faculty and staff to see students in person to congratulate them on their success, students would like you to submit a short congratulatory video. These videos may be featured in the Virtual Convocation on June 25, or combined to make a congratulatory video that graduates can view. 

Please join us in showing our graduates that UNBC faculty and staff suppport them and want to honour their accomplishments!

Deadline for submission is May 26, 2021

Best Practice for Video:

  • Record using a microphone or film in a quiet location
  • Make sure you are in a well-lit location
  • We encourage you to wear regalia or UNBC swag
  • Film horizontally (landscape)
  • Leave at least 2-3 seconds before and after you speak (included in the time limit)

Faculty congrats capture - 2020
