Calling All Cultural Graduation Participants!

The HUB is very proud to be working with some very talented student organizers to put on cultural graduation ceremonies for this year's graduating seniors! These graduation ceremonies exist to bring underrepresented students, members of cultural clubs, and their allies together in celebration of their accomplishments. These events are open to the campus, and all are welcome. If you're interested in taking part in these ceremonies, email the coordinators (contact information for each ceremony below) to find out how to apply.

If you have any questions about why there is a tradition of cultural graduation ceremonies on this campus, feel free to send questions to The HUB (

Black Grad:
Black Graduation is a culturally relevant celebration with a genuine reflection of the African American culture conveyed through a message delivered by the keynote speaker, the student speakers, the cultural entertainment and food. The celebration allows you to participate in a more personal and meaningful celebration with students who share similar ethnic backgrounds. It also allows you to individually recognize parents, family, and others for their support and love in helping you attain your college degree.
Though it is hosted by Black Scholars United and celebrates the African American culture, all are welcome to support and participate.
Email Kamryn at for application and questions!
