Summary: President's Message June 2011
Spring is a wonderful time of year at the University of Regina. The park surrounding the campus
and our own outdoor space are budding, blooming and green once again.
It is also an exciting time because we are celebrating the accomplishments of our students at
spring convocation. This year at the 37th
Annual University of Regina Spring Convocation
we will recognize nearly 1,500 students who have come from all over the world, shown great
dedication to their studies and rightfully earned the privilege of receiving a University of Regina
degree, certificate or diploma.
Convocation is also the time we pay tribute to some outstanding individuals. We will recognize
student award winners who have achieved academic excellence upon graduation. This year, we
will also recognize Dr. Stephen Bend, the recipient of the Alumni Award of Excellence in
Teaching.
We also bestow honorary degrees to pay tribute to individuals who are leaders in their fields and
play major roles in shaping our society. I am proud to welcome four honorary degree recipients
to our University of Regina community: Architect Douglas Cardinal, who designed the First
Nations University of Canada; Regina business leader and philanthropist Paul Hill; and Alanna
Mitchell, one of the world's foremost environmental journalists. The University also granted an
honorary degree to actor and activist Shirley Douglas at a special ceremony held in Toronto in
February.
