Nearly 2,000 Faculty of Health graduates representing all four schools and departments in the Faculty — Kinesiology & Health Science, Psychology, Nursing and Health Policy & Management — received their degrees at Convocation on Friday June 8, 2012.
Faculty of Health Dean Harvey Skinner congratulated the graduates on their accomplishments and their parents and families for the sacrifices they made. He spoke of how this year’s graduating class is getting more than just a degree but is part of a larger goal to help people live healthier, longer, as Agents of Change. After outlining the three key characteristics of an Agent of Change (knowing, being and doing), he led the graduates in reciting the oath: We are Faculty of Health Agents of Change: transforming lives, systems, health and the world. With that, Dean Skinner challenged the graduates to live up to the oath with his familiar exhortation: “Make it so!”
Congratulations to all of the graduates of the Class of 2012!
