Celebrating Excellence: June 2018 Convocation

Congratulations to all of our graduating students who convocate in June 2018. We're exceptionally proud of your commitment to excellence and look forward to the significant contributions you will make as engaged global citizens.

We also celebrated Professor Ruth Koleszar-Green, recipient of the President's University-Wide Teaching Award; and Professor Bernard Lightman, who is honoured as a Distinguished Research Professor.

Graduating student Antonnia Kiana Blake was feted as the winner of the 2018 Murray G. Ross Award, York's highest honour for a student, which is presented annually to a graduating student for scholarship and outstanding participation in undergraduate student life.

In addition, we conferred an honorary degree on Tony Gagliano, St. Joseph Communications president, driving force, philanthropist, and "the man behind Luminato."


Of our 2,000+ new grads, special commendation goes out to the most outstanding students who graduated with the highest academic distinctions, and who are all on the Dean's Honour Roll:

  • Summa Cum Laude (graduating with highest honour)
  • Magna Cum Laude (graduating with great honour)
  • Cum Laude (graduating with honour)
