March 29, 2020: CANADIAN UNIVERSITY DUBAI - GRADUATION 2020
MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR AND PRESIDENT TO THE CLASS OF 2020
Dear Class of 2020,
In years to come, when you look back on the year 2020, it is our hope that you remember a joyous celebration of your achievements and successes at Canadian University Dubai (CUD). What is typically celebrated, in a gathering of friends, family, and the university community during our graduation ceremony, brings us challenge this year in light of COVID-19.
As we continue to take seriously the national directives to remain socially distant, and we, like you, are uncertain of the timeframes and severity of the emerging situation, we have acted to postpone upcoming 2020 academic calendar’s events. Sadly, this included the Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony.
We understand that the news to postpone this signature event is disappointing. Graduation is a milestone and an important tradition as you close a significant chapter in your lives. Wearing the CUD regalia, symbolic of your achievement, is a moment we all cherish in this journey. Graduation is closure of perseverance and a reminder of the strength you’ve gained in meeting all the requirements of your degree. We understand that a commencement ceremony highlights this range of emotion and joy, and, we too, are deeply disappointed by any disruption of this tradition.
However, as we seek to rise above this challenge, we are encouraged to find alternative ways to celebrate you. We are sure that we will make it up to you once the time is right. We anticipate that time to be early 2021, and we will plan for a larger and unforgettable ceremony with both the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021.
The past several weeks and the weeks ahead are a true test of what CUD has instilled in you. An innovative spirit will emerge as we plan for new realities. While it is true that your CUD graduation year will forever be synonymous with this unique place in history, it is our goal that you remember it, in years to come, with joy. Thank you again for your resiliency and willingness to adapt.
