Graduation Celebrations

Cultural Graduation Celebrations

The deadline for graduating students to register is Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

Registration opens Feb. 15. Links coming soon!

Cultural & Identity-based Graduation Celebrations are campus-wide events that honor the achievements and academic excellence of our students while incorporating traditions and practices that uplift our communities! This year, the celebrations will be held in-person. You may register for more than one celebration.

Please note that graduation sashes, stoles, and pins will be ordered and distributed to honor the achievements of the graduating class of 2023. We encourage graduates to register by the deadline to ensure you receive a memento.
