134th Convocation

A gathering of scholars – Carleton University will celebrate its 134th Convocation this month. The ceremonies will take place from June 9 to 12, and more than 2,600 graduands are expected to attend over the four days. “Convocation,” a Latin term meaning “assembly or gathering,” was developed as a way to welcome students into an exclusive group of scholars while honouring them for successfully completing their education. Carleton President Roseann O’Reilly Runte is marshaled into the ceremony by Clerk of the Senate and Marshal of Convocation, Brian Mortimer.
