WHITEHORSE, YT—220 graduates from 32 certificate, diploma and degree programs make up the first graduating class of Yukon University, Canada’s first university north of 60°.
The YukonU class of 2020 includes 55 students graduating with honours, and the first graduates from the Bachelor of Arts in Indigenous Governance, Community Education and Employment Support, Climate Change Policy, and Yukon First Nations Arts programs. Twenty-two students are graduating from the Practical Nurse and Health Care Assistant programs.
Given the challenges of celebrating in person this year, Yukon University is inviting graduates, their families, friends and the wider community to join a digital celebration to recognize and applaud the hard work, commitment and accomplishments of the class of 2020.
