Photo gallery: Athabasca University convocation through the years
We’ve been celebrating convocation since 1977! See how the annual tradition has changed over the years
Athabasca University’s (AU) first convocation ceremony took place in 1977 with a graduating class of 2. The ceremony featured a president’s installation, graduation, and a film premiere all in one event!
Over the years, as our graduating classes have grown, so too have our convocation ceremonies. This year, almost 2,000 grads will receive AU parchments as part of the Class of 2023—one of the largest classes ever!
Check out this snapshot of AU history from convocation through the years!
