A Message from

Chancellor Mary Jo Haddad

The University of Windsor had hoped to hold an in-person Spring Convocation in June 2021. Still, after careful review, Chancellor Mary Jo Haddad has announced that, once again, the upcoming Convocation ceremonies will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The University of Windsor continues to follow government and public health protocols regarding physical distancing and large public gatherings.   Though we are all disappointed, we cannot celebrate our students’ achievements in the usual way. Please, know that your health and safety is our primary decision-making driver during these uncertain times.

We cannot produce and send out any visitation letters for family members to attend the ceremony.

Please continue to monitor this site for more information about Spring Convocation 2021, and be assured that this virtual convocation celebration will include many of our essential and meaningful traditions.
