Congratulations iSchool 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. In order to follow provincial health guidelines, the iSchool hosted its very first Virtual Graduation Ceremony on Tuesday, June 16. More than 60 iSchool students that graduated in May, including 35 MLIS, 9 MAS, 14 DUAL and 4 MACL 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, Luanne Freund, followed by our wonderful guest speakers, who shared their warm and inspiring words with us.  We would like to thank Susan Parker, University Librarian; Chris Middlemass, President at BC Library Association; Victoria Gomez, 2019-20 LASSA MLIS Co-President and Nathalie McClintock, 2019-20 LASSA MAS Co-President 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!
