UFV degrees awarded to Aldergrove grads

Convocation refers to a gathering together, and thousands did so on June 12-13 as University of the Fraser Valley celebrated its graduates

Convocation refers to a gathering together, and thousands did so on June 12 and 13 as the University of the Fraser Valley celebrated its graduates at three ceremonies at the Abbotsford Centre.

More than 2,100 individuals graduated with more than 2,700 credentials this year, over the two days of ceremonies.

That meant a lot of handshakes for several UFV officials, including President and Vice Chancellor Mark Evered, Alumni Association Chair Justin P. Goodrich, and Chancellor Brian Minter (who was presiding over his final convocation ceremonies, as his term expires this fall).

Evered greeted the crowds with salutations in several languages, reflecting the many nations represented by UFV grads.

He noted that UFV awarded nearly double the credentials conferred just six years ago, and alluded to the university’s 40th anniversary, noting that UFV has come a long way since starting out in church basements and storefronts in 1974.
