Abstract

Thompson Rivers University, Convocation Ceremony, 9 June 2005, Confluence of Rivers, Confluence of Learning, Remarks by: Sir John Daniel, President & CEO, Commonwealth of Learning, On the conferment of the degree of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa // Madam Chancellor; Members of the Faculty; Graduates; and Guests. // I thank Thompson Rivers University for the privilege of receiving this honorary degree. Such recognition is always a thrill, but when the degree is awarded at the first convocation ceremony of a newly named university the pleasure is even greater. // Today's graduates, whose presence here today crowns years of hard work, are the founder members of a new generation of alumni who proudly carry the name Thompson Rivers University on their diplomas and degrees. // I congratulate you all on your success and thank your families for the support that they have given you. You know and they know that whilst your names are on the parchments you receive, higher education depends on moral and financial support from various sources, but above all from your families.
