Indigenous Attire

Indigenous graduates, faculty and other participants may choose to wear traditional Indigenous attire, with or in lieu of a gown, at all convocation ceremonies. The hood may be carried rather than worn depending on cultural protocols. Nipissing University acknowledges the diversity of Indigenous peoples, communities, and nations. As such it is recognized that traditional Indigenous attire may vary.

There will be a reception with light refreshments immediately following the ceremony in the RJ Surtees Student Athletics Centre Gym next to the ceremony space. See you there!
