Dubai school makes history for displaying images of graduating class on Burj Khalifa

-

Canadian University Dubai made history last night as it became the first university in the world to display images of its graduating class on the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. The ceremony was the leading Dubai based university’s 10th graduation event, and recognized its class of 2020 by illuminating one of the most iconic buildings in the world with the faces of this year’s graduates.

The virtual graduation ceremony took place in the presence of His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Tolerance, as well as the university’s chancellor, President, faculty members and students under the theme of ‘The Beauty of Endurance’, and was live streamed on the university’s website through YouTube and Facebook.

A building known for being a symbol of infinite possibilities, Canadian University Dubai’s Burj Khalifa virtual graduation was a reminder to its 2020 graduates that the future is bright after the university had to postpone its graduation ceremony this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a way to bring its graduates together virtually after months of social distancing.

Canadian University Dubai will host its in-person graduation ceremony at a later date when the safety and well-being of the entire CUD community can be ensured.
