Valedictorian Nominations

The Spring 2018 Valedictorians slection process will begin soon!

Selection Process:

Spring nominations for Valedictorian will open in late February / early March 2018. Valedictorian applications are an excellent opportunity for graduating students to nominate a fellow graduating student – undergraduate or graduate – who best represents the student community at McMaster University.

Valedictorians will demonstrate high academic achievement, leadership, and communication skills. In addition, and pursuant to the selection policy, applications will be evaluated on such factors as academic prowess, personal achievement, and community outreach.  The MSU provides undergraduate student representation on the valedictorian selection committees for each faculty.

The Valedictorian Nomination packages will be linked here.

Completed valedictorian nomination packages will be submitted to the respective faculty or program office listed on the application. Interviews with prospective valedictorians will take place between the application deadline and mid April.

Valedictorians will deliver their speech (no longer than five minutes) to the convocation in which they graduate. Attendees will include graduating students, faculty, honoured guests, family, and friends.
