July 19, 2019It is that time of year and where your assistance is needed with a very important task – the selection of Student Speakers for the upcoming Convocation Ceremonies on October 9-11, 2019.
The Student Speaker you nominate plays an important role in representing their graduating class. The selected graduating students will each be asked to give a five-minute, inspirational address that reflects on their SFU student experience and what it means to be a part of the SFU graduating class. The student should be comfortable speaking in front of a large audience.
If you know a student who you believe would be a good speaker, able to articulate their SFU experience and connect with their fellow graduands, please submit your nomination and briefly explain why you think they would make a good candidate.
Please do not contact the students in advance to see if they are interested in having their name forwarded. Once we get all the nominations, we will contact a number of students to discuss whether or not they would be willing to be a student convocation speaker.
See the link for complete details: http://www.sfu.ca/convocation.

The deadline for nominations is 12:00 pm on Wednesday, September 4 , 2019. The web survey will close at noon on the 4th.
Selected Student Speakers will be announced in the SFU News prior to Convocation.
