CEO Graduation Cancellation Update 2020

Published date : Fri, 25 September 2020 03:24 PM

Tēnā koutou,

Last week, after much discussion and an assessment of our options, given the reappearance of COVID-19 in our community over the past month, we, the Council and Executive Leadership Team, made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 graduation ceremony for our certificate, Bachelor’s degree and Master’s graduands.

Yesterday, after carefully reviewing our earlier decision, and based on further information received this week, we affirmed our earlier decision to cancel graduation for 2020.

I have taken some time to explain the reasons behind this decision, in a video message, which you can access below:

I encourage you to watch the video and to get in touch if you have any questions. The video will only take a few minutes to watch.

As I mention in the video, I sincerely acknowledge and share in your disappointment and I look forward to a time when we can celebrate together.

Thank you for your time and continued support.


Ngā mihi,

Professor Wiremu Doherty
