Message from SAIT President and CEO Dr. David Ross
Spring 2020 graduands, although your convocation will be anything but traditional, that in no way discounts the significance of your achievements. Nor does it dampen the enthusiasm and pride your friends, families and instructors have for you and all you have done to get to this day in your life.
I hope you and your loved ones will mark Thursday, June 18 at 1 pm on your calendars and join your classmates online for SAIT’s 2020 Spring Virtual Ceremony.
The resilience, maturity, and adaptability I have seen from this graduating class is inspiring. What you experienced in the last six weeks of your time at SAIT, combined with the other countless weeks of learning, studying and creating, will make you one unstoppable graduate.
