UC grads marking the occasion with a photo opportunity

UC students who graduated in absentia have been donning their caps and regalia this week to take part in UC’s graduate photo opportunities.

It’s an occasion for graduates and their whānau to come together and celebrate with a photographic memory of graduation. Each graduate was able to take a photo with either UC’s Tumu Kaunihera | Chancellor, Tumu Whakarae | Vice-Chancellor, Tumu Tuarua Akoranga | Deputy-Vice-Chancellor Academic and Tumu Tuarua | Deputy-Vice-Chancellor Research.
