Multicultural Graduation Celebrations

Congratulations to the Class of 2023!

Multicultural graduation celebrations bring together students of similar cultural backgrounds to honor their heritage and celebrate their academic accomplishments.

These celebrations do not replace the standard University commencement ceremonies. They are additional celebrations smaller in scale scheduled at times that allow students to participate in multiple graduation ceremonies. In addition to our University Commencement Ceremonies for your Academic Department(s), you are also invited to participate in our Multicultural Graduation Celebrations, which will take place on:
