Convocation Updates


Those attending events during Acadia University’s graduation celebrations will be required to wear a protective face mask to prevent spread of COVID-19 and keep the Acadia community safe.

On behalf of Chancellor Bruce Galloway and President Peter Ricketts, the Acadia community is invited to join in this year’s Convocation celebrations.

Acadia University has appointed Dr. David Duke as the University Marshal just ahead of the 2022 Convocation, set for May 8 and 9. Duke, who is head of the History and Classics department, will take over the position held by Dr. Rob Raeside, head of the Earth and Environmental Science department, since 2007.

On May 8 and 9, 2022, more than 800 graduates from Acadia University’s four faculties – Arts, Pure and Applied Science, Professional Studies, and Theology – will receive their undergraduate and graduate diplomas, joining Acadia’s more than 40,000 alumni worldwide. In addition, Acadia will confer five honorary degrees on individuals who have distinguished themselves in public service, education, and scientific research.
