Carleton University’s 130th Convocation

Clerk of Senate Brian Mortimer is also Marshal of Convocation at Carleton University. For each Convocation ceremony, the marshal enters and exits ahead of the chancellor and carries the mace–the staff symbolizing the right of the university to grant degrees. This year, more than 3,000 graduands will receive their diplomas between June 12 and June 15.

Mortimer says he looks forward to Convocation because “it is a wonderful occasion that brings together, in one room, all the members of the Carleton family in order to celebrate the academic success of our students, the excitement of the intellectual endeavour and Carleton’s rich history and traditions.”

Mortimer was appointed Clerk of Senate in 2005, and this year’s Convocation will be his fourth as marshal. Readers can learn more about Convocation at
