At home, online and with humour, U of T’s Class of 2020 celebrate a virtual convocation

With social media, Zoom calls and signs planted on front lawns and draped from apartment balconies, there was no shortage of well-wishing for the University of Toronto’s class of 2020 – the first in the university’s 193 years to celebrate convocation remotely.

Some crafty graduates set the stage for their at-home convocation with cardboard props and makeshift gowns. Others left a running commentary of congratulatory messages on a chat window that accompanied the virtual event.

Pride 2020: U of T to raise flags on all three campuses

The University of Toronto is kicking off its month-long celebration of Pride 2020 with a virtual raising of flags across its three campuses. 

“From its inception, Pride has always been more than a celebration. Pride commemorates pain and loss within LGBTQ2S+ communities and highlights the importance of fighting discrimination,” said Karima Hashmani, U of T’s executive director, equity, diversity and inclusion.
