Congratulations UBC iSchool Fall 2020 graduates!

The COVID-19 situation has changed many things in our daily lives, but not our profound desire to celebrate and recognize our students and their well-deserved success. The iSchool hosted its second Virtual Graduation Ceremony on Tuesday, November 24. More than 25 iSchool students graduated this Fall, including 20 MLIS, 1 MAS, 2 DUAL, 1 MACL and 2 Ph.D. students.

Faculty and staff members, students, their families and friends were invited to join this online gathering to celebrate our graduates and their achievements. It was a very special ceremony for all of us at the iSchool.

The event began with a Welcome message and Land Acknowledgment by Director, Erik Kwakkel, followed by our wonderful guest speakers, who shared their warm and inspiring words with us.  We would like to thank Sarah Dupont, Head Librarian of the Xwi7xwa Library, and Genevieve Weber, Archivist at BC Archives, for taking the time to join us in this special event. The ceremony concluded with a celebratory toast and a very unusual, yet so special, group photo.

Congrats to all the graduates, we are all so proud of you, and we wish you the very best as you move forward on to the next stage!
