Western’s Indigenous Student Centre is proud to celebrate our graduating Indigenous students this year at our virtually ceremony!

The Indigenous Student Centre has worked diligently to ensure that we support and celebrate our students throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. This year, our Indigenous Student Graduation Ceremony will be held virtually on Zoom and live streamed through our Facebook page.

All Indigenous students registered at Western or one of our Affiliated University College’s (Brescia, Huron, or King’s) are welcome to participate. Families are encouraged to attend and support their graduates.

During the ceremony we honour and celebrate our Indigenous student graduates’ accomplishments. This year's ceremony will feature Bimadoshka Pucan, PhD, and recent graduate of Western in 2019.

Graduates are gifted with a Western Indigenous Student Centre stole (white to acknowledge the completion of an undergraduate degree, silver for a master’s degree and gold for a doctorate degree). For students, the stoles are a visual symbol of pride in their Indigenous heritage. Students who are interested in recieving a stole, please fill out this sign up sheet.

*If you graduated in 2020, you are welcome to attend this year's graduation ceremony! Please fill out the sign up sheet to be included amongst the list of graduates and indicate that you are a 2020 graduate and whether you previously received a stole last year.
