Dates of existence



Prior to 1969 all the colleges and faculties of the university assembled together at a convocation, one in the spring and one in the fall. The growing size of the university soon made a single, united convocation unworkable. In the spring of 1969 Osgoode Hall Law School held its first, separate convocation, and in 1971 all the colleges (except Bethune) were called together separately in convocation. In 1972 Bethune and Administrative Studies began their own exercise, and they were followed by Fine Arts (1973), Environmental Studies (1974) and the faculties of Science and Education (1975).
