Become a Convocation Volunteer

A great group of volunteers is what makes the difference between an 'okay' Convocation and a 'great' Convocation!

Convocation is one of UNBC’s most important annual events, and its success is attributed to the 100 volunteers that come out each year. Our volunteers ensure that graduates, families, and friends have a memorable day full of wonderful experiences.

Volunteerism is crucial, but it is also rewarding and fun. Discover the passion, excitement, and pride felt by students graduating from UNBC and know that you are part of something great!
