Identity-Based and Affinity Graduation Celebrations

Congratulations to our graduating seniors! Based on feedback and data from previous years, we are excited to celebrate the Class of 2023 with many more options to display your intersectionality and to make it easy to get your identity cords and stoles. REGISTER HERE for cords and stoles. Cords and stoles are available to undergraduate AND graduate students.

Please note: you MUST register to receive a cord or stole. Cords and stoles will be distributed at each graduation celebration OR via pickup, as indicated in the form. The deadline for 2023 graduation celebrations is Friday April 7th at 5pm. Please contact for more information.

"Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world." — Dolores Huerta

Throughout the year, we plan and support creative opportunities that both raise awareness about the issues our communities face and celebrate our communities’ accomplishments and traditions.
