Chancellor's Graduate Medal
The chancellor of the university is a volunteer, elected by the senate from the community. The chancellor represents the public interest in the university, presides at convocation, and confers the degrees of the university. As its ceremonial head, the chancellor is often called upon to represent the university at major events. The Chancellor’s Graduate Medal was established to acknowledge the outstanding contributions of the chancellors of the University of Calgary.
