The Office of the Registrar at YukonU evaluates students eligibility to graduate according to the approved program requirements. Upon successful completion of all requirements, the Office of the Registrar will issue a parchment confirming the earned credential.
Convocation 2022 is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 2022. There will be two ceremonies for graduates to cross the stage and receive their parchment in front of family, guests, faculty and VIPs at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre in Whitehorse. Our COVID-19 back-up plan is to hold a graduates-only event if pandemic protections limit gatherings.
If you complete the program requirements for graduation in the Fall 2021 semester and require a letter of completion, please fill out the request form.
Our ceremonial caribou antler
The thirteen carved areas represent our thirteen campuses. The tines represent the flow of students, research and knowledge in and out of the institution.
The space between carvings represent knowledge yet to be discovered, awaiting only curiosity and a little hard work.
The caribou are an important symbol in many Yukon communities. The herd is both resilient and fragile.
If the leaders are disturbed, the caribou behind will stray from the traditional migration route, even heading back to where they started.
As the herd arrives, people are cautioned to “Let the Leaders Pass”.
Held high in procession, the Ceremonial Antler conjures a majestic caribou leading its herd.
During convocation, our graduates are the leaders, migrating from learning to doing, and showing future students, future generations, the right path.
YukonU's Ceremonial Antler was carved by Shane Wilson from a naturally-dropped rack, and donated to Yukon University by Jacqueline Bedard. Thank you to Lucy-Anne Kay, from Fort McPherson, NWT, for sharing her cultural story and developing the vision behind the Ceremonial Antler.
