UBC Congregation 2002
Since 1916, UBC graduates have gathered to celebrate their success
as students in Congregation ceremonies that bring together faculty,
staff, alumni, families and friends.
From May 22-29 more than 5,000 graduates will cross the stage at
UBC's Chan Centre for the Performing Arts to receive their degrees
from UBC Chancellor William Sauder. In 22 separate ceremonies, degrees
from 12 faculties as well as 12 honorary degrees will be conferred.
This year's UBC graduates, whose ideas and innovation are creating
new approaches to local and global issues, will join the more than
200,000 alumni now living and working in countries around the world.
