  • Spring message from David Mandzuk, Acting Dean, Extended Education

    On behalf of my colleagues in the Division of Extended Education at the University of Manitoba, I want to congratulate you on your achievements. Earning a Certificate or Letter of Accomplishment at any time is worth celebrating but at this particularly challenging time in our lives, it is even more noteworthy. The pandemic has reminded us all of the importance of being able to adapt quickly, learn independently, and search for new ways to apply what we learn, and I trust that the courses you have taken through Extended Education have allowed you to “extend” your learning in these ways.  Although there continues to be uncertainty about when our current challenges will end, we have faith that all 360 of you graduating from 22 different programs will be well-positioned to thrive in the post-COVID era, thanks to the time you spent in Extended Education.

    Congratulations once again and best wishes for the future. Stay safe and keep well!

Prepare for graduating - spring

As part of Convocation, there will be a slideshow of graduating students, including the grad’s name, photo, and personal quote, as their names are read aloud.

Graduating students are encouraged to fill out their slides to make the most of their virtual Convocation experience. Students can check their UM emails for information on how to submit material for their Convocation slides. They can upload their photo, phonetic name pronunciation, and quote, to personalize their moment. The deadline to submit details for slides is May 20.

Students who do not fill out a slide are not included in the ceremony.
