Indigenous Student Graduation Ceremony

Graduation group

Western’s Indigenous Student Graduation Ceremony takes place each year in early April.

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. 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 and can also be worn during Western Convocation ceremonies in February, June, or October.
