Special Ceremonies

In addition to the main undergraduate and graduate commencement ceremonies, organizations and departments across campus hold special ceremonies. For example, the Center for Black Studies has held a Black Graduation Recognition Ceremony, and the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center has celebrated LGBTQ+ students with a Lavender Graduation. The Latino Resource Center has also sponsored a Latino graduation.

Please contact the affiliated organizations directly for more information about these special ceremonies. They're a unique way to recognize different aspects of the educational journey.
