Convocation Update

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our in-person convocation ceremonies until further notice. We recognize that this news is disappointing for our graduates, their families, friends, and the entire Nipissing community, however, the safety of our Lakers community is paramount. Once details and alternative dates are confirmed, they will be communicated to you.
