VCC recognizes Spring 2020 grads, postpones convocation ceremony

Posted on June 10, 2020



Graduating from college is a major milestone, and it’s important to us at Vancouver Community College (VCC) to celebrate it well. That’s why we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Spring 2020 convocation ceremony (originally scheduled for Wednesday, June 10) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While a future ceremony date is yet to be determined, the college is looking at ways to fully celebrate the accomplishments of our students in the future, including the possibility of an addition to our Fall 2020 convocation ceremony. Of course, all will depend on provincial health and safety guidelines in place at the time.

Special messages for the VCC Class of 2020

Students graduating today have worked extremely hard to complete their programs, and it’s important for us to recognize and honour their achievements. One very meaningful tradition of any convocation ceremony is to hear words of wisdom and encouragement from leaders in our community. 

Please watch the following messages from VCC president and CEO Ajay Patel and B.C. Premier John Horgan, and B.C. Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Traning Melanie Mark prepared especially for our grads on this momentous day.
