Convocation for the Class of 2015 was held May 9th on campus.  In total, graduates from the University of Prince Edward Island included 73 from BEd, 18 from BEd (français langue seconde),  5 from the BEd (Human Resource Development), 13 MEd and our very first 2 PHd graduates.  We extend our thanks to all who were able to participate in some way in this important day, and for all of the work in guiding our students to graduation.

The new intake of Bachelor of Education students got off to a great start with Orientation Day on Monday, 11-May-2015.  A very special thanks to all who could take the time to come out and meet and talk to our new students.  Feedback from the event suggests that this is going to be a great year!
