Fall Convocation 2023 is just around the corner

Two honorary degrees will be conferred on exceptional individuals

October 15, 2023 — 

Convocation ceremonies for Fall 2023 graduates from the Fort Garry campus along with graduates from the Université de Saint-Boniface will be held on October 17th, 18th, and 19th.

A separate ceremony will be held for graduating students from the Bannatyne campus on October 26th, 2023.

Guests can attend in person or stream the ceremonies online.

You can view the ceremony schedules on our Convocation Dates and Times page.

We look forward to celebrating your graduation this Fall! Join the conversation online by using #umanitoba2023 to celebrate.


The honorary degree is the highest honour the University of Manitoba can confer upon an individual for distinguished achievement in scholarship, the arts, or public service. During the Fall 2023 ceremonies, Honorary Degrees will be granted to Dr. Linda J. Kristjanson and David A. Robertson.


Those who declared their graduation before the July 27th deadline would’ve already received email communications. Those who were added to the list after the deadline will begin to receive emails within the next week. These emails will provide instructions on how to sign up for convocation, claim your academic attire, and what to expect from this year’s ceremonies.

The deadline to declare your intent to graduate for Fall Convocation 2023 was on July 27th, 2023.


The Annual Traditional Graduation Pow Wow is held in the Spring. All Indigenous graduates (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) in 2023-2024 are encouraged to participate in the Spring 2024 Graduation Pow Wow.

More information will be sent out next term. Students graduating this fall can look for registration information next April on our Indigenous Student Experience page.
