Convocation awards face-lift


You’ll see award recipients standing out amongst their cohort at convocation wearing beautiful, high quality medals, designed by our talented Marketing team.

The Awards Committee conducted a review of academic awards at other institutions and found a trend moving away from plaques and towards medals.

Visibility of the medals at the ceremony will help showcase recipients of these coveted awards. Founders’ medals will have a teal ribbon and the Chancellor’s medals will have a dark blue ribbon.

The medals will be hung on the gowns in the gowning room for recipients attending the ceremony. For those who are not attending, the medals will be mailed out by November 12.
