Library closes Monday; all in-person spring and summer courses will be suspended to continue coronavirus fight
Brandon University students will still be able to graduate and get their degrees this spring, but the traditional Convocation ceremonies will be postponed.
“This was an extremely tough decision but calling off Convocation should further drive home the seriousness of the pandemic that we are facing,” said BU President David Docherty.

Brandon University is joining a national campaign to celebrate the positive effects of combining work experience with learning.
The national campaign will run throughout the month of March led by Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada, or CEWIL, the lead organization for work-integrated learning in Canada.
