    HONORARY DEGREE CEREMONY FOR JAPANESE CANADIAN STUDENTS OF 1942 TO FOLLOW SPECIAL SCREENING OF STOLEN MEMORIES AND BREAKING THE SILENCE AT ASIAN HERITAGE MONTH

    A special ceremony will be held during UBC’s spring congregation to recognize and honour the Japanese Canadian students whose university experience was disrupted in 1942 when they were uprooted and exiled from the B.C. coast – a violation of their citizenship rights.

    Honorary degrees will be conferred on the students who were unable to complete their education when they were sent to internment camps in 1942. Degrees will be re-conferred on the students who completed their studies but missed their graduation ceremony because of the internment.

    The ceremony will be webcast live. The webcast begins 15 minutes prior to the ceremony. For more information about the webcast and to access the webcast, please visit: http://www.graduation.ubc.ca/ubc-vancouver/live-webcast.
