U of T to host 'virtual' spring convocation ceremony, celebrate graduates at in-person events later in year
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic that has upended life around the world, the University of Toronto plans to host a “virtual” convocation ceremony this spring while academic divisions can make preparations to celebrate graduates with in-person events once it’s safe to do so.
On Friday, U of T President Meric Gertler communicated the two-part plan in a letter to students and community members.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Canada, Shrey Jain and his University of Toronto classmates received notice that all their courses were moving online two weeks ago – and they saw an opportunity.
Jain is the leader of Flatten.ca, a volunteer-driven push to leverage big data in the fight against COVID-19. In just over a week, he and more than 25 other collaborators created an online platform that provides a real-time heat map of potential and confirmed COVID-19 cases.
With the world in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Toronto has taken the difficult decision to cancel spring convocation ceremonies – an annual event that brings nearly 50,000 people to campus over the course of three weeks and 32 ceremonies.
