LUMS Holds First Virtual Convocation for its Graduating Batch

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, LUMS hosted its first virtual 2020 convocation ceremony on Facebook, at which Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai delivered the keynote speech.

The university is headed by Rector LUMS, Mr. Shahid Hussain, founding chancellor Syed Babar Ali, pro-chancellor Abdur Razzaq Dawood and vice chancellor Dr. Arshad Ahmad belonged to congratulated the 1,092 graduates. The parents of the graduates, the LUMS faculty and the staff also took part in the virtual celebration.

The ceremony began with a greeting from the Chancellor, followed by the national anthem. Then the caps were adopted in which the 2020 class celebrated the spirit of being together. Messages from the graduates and the President of the Student Council followed, and then a video homage to the senior class entitled Alvida was shown.

Dr. Arshad Ahmad congratulated the students and asked them to serve society as they set out.

This is a time when the calls for help are getting louder, when economic and personal loss are more visible, and when social distress and inequity have taken on new meanings. So, could this be your moment, and could this be your opportunity; could this be your defining moment to look beyond personal ambition to consider a more noble social vision that is required more than ever before.

Ms. Yousafzai shared her thoughts on this occasion and said that her trip taught her that change does not happen by itself and that you have to take a step forward, say something and do something. She urged students to encourage the government to invest more in quality education. “I think this is the most important investment our country can make.”

To the graduates, she said,

Speak out against gender bias and harmful social norms. At home, in a classroom and in wider society, social norms influence girls’ and boys’ perceptions of their lives and their futures.… Social norms can change—and you can help them change by raising your voice for girls’ education in communities across the country.

Rector LUMS advised the graduates to find creative solutions to problems and expressed his admiration for the students.

I am inspired and proud of how you have all risen to the challenge and displayed exceptional maturity, resilience, and determination.

He also announced the winners of the prestigious National Management Foundation awards.

As the whole world recovers from the effects of COVID-19, they will look to you to give us purpose, hope, and a path forward.

Founding Pro-Chancellor Syed Babar Ali shared how the graduates can prepare for the path ahead.

You are now entering the real world. The degree or the certificate that you will get from here is only the entry pass to your next career or your next occupation. After that, you will be judged on how much industry and hard work you put into your effort. As was stressed on you throughout your stay at LUMS, that above all, you will be judged by your truthfulness, by your integrity, and your humility as to how you conduct yourself.

At the virtual meeting, the LUMS alumni also shared memories of their time at the Alma Mater and the far-reaching effects on their lives. They were joined by deans from various schools, who congratulated the outgoing students and wished them good luck in their future endeavors.

The degrees were then awarded online to graduates, and those who won medals or on Dean’s Honors Lists were recognized for their performance.
