Spring Convocation

Congratulations to Durham College’s (DC) 2021 graduates. Your hard work and perseverance has paid off and now is your chance to celebrate!

The college is proud to recognize the achievements of its students through this specially created Spring Convocation Recognition Website. From messages of support from school deans, and shouts-outs from family, friends and the college community, to the list of graduates from each program, announcing our Alumni of Distinction recipients, and providing information about being an alumni, we hope you take the opportunity to explore each section of the site and reflect on just how far you’ve come.

Graduates will be invited to attend a future in-person ceremony when it is safe to do so.

Messages of congratulations from DC

Michele James, chair,
Durham College Board of Governors
Don Lovisa, president, Durham College
Dr. Elaine Popp, executive vice president, Academic, Durham College

Durham College is situated on the Traditional Territory of the Mississaugas and the territory that is covered by the Williams Treaties. We are thankful for the opportunity to teach and learn on the lands of the Peoples of Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.


Durham College is committed to a diverse and inclusive campus for all students and employees, regardless of race. We condemn all forms of anti-Black racism and all systems of oppression which deny individuals the right to equitable treatment, access and fairness. We acknowledge that systemic and institutionalized racism serve to limit the opportunities and potential of members of the Black community and Durham College pledges to listen, learn and take actionable steps to ensure equitable and inclusive access for all.
