Today’s convocation ceremonies will also mark two firsts for our graduate programs. Colin Magee will become the first individual to graduate from the Organizational Leadership stream in the PhD Management program, and Jingen (Lena) Liang will become the first individual to graduate from the Master of Science, Tourism and Hospitality program.
The University of Guelph’s convocation ceremonies will confer a total of six honorary doctorate degrees this week. Noted labour economist and University of California – Berkeley professor, David Card will be honoured at the 4:30 ceremony. He is known for his use of empirical economics to address important labour issues, including education, minimum wage and immigration.
