UNIVERSITY ORATORS

During encaenia and convocation ceremonies, the university orator is called upon to perform important tasks. They confer bachelor's degrees, present the honorary degree candidates, and prepare and present citations for the honorary degree recipients. The citations briefly describe the recipients' accomplishments, any connection to UNB, and explain why they deserve recognition from the university.
