Native American Graduation Celebration


Did you know that Native American students have the highest post-secondary dropout rate? One contributing factor is not having a sense of belonging or visibility on college campuses. The Office of Tribal Relations is working to create that belonging and visibility by acknowledging our students educational milestones and accomplishments. We want to honor our Native American students who are graduating. Our celebration not only includes Chico State Native American college graduates, but Native American community college and Native American high school graduates. Students receive a traditional sash and necklace for their achievement.
