With the congregation ceremonies in full swing, it is an exciting time of year for UBC graduates, their families and fellow UBC colleagues along with the UBC community and other well-wishers.
A few congregation facts include:
@ In 1916, there were 41 graduates at UBC’s first Congregation ceremony held at the Hotel Vancouver
@ From 1919 to 1923, the first degrees were conferred in Agriculture, Applied Science in Nursing, and Forestry
@ Currently, there are 12 UBC faculties issuing degrees: Agricultural Sciences, Applied Science, Arts, Commerce and Business Administration, Dentistry, Education, Forestry, Graduate Studies, Law, Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Science.

So, take a few minutes to celebrate some of UBC’s graduate students’ scholarly research and intellectual output – from across a variety of disciplines – via cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository.
