Unity Celebration

The Commencement Unity Celebration is a ceremony to celebrate those of racially and ethnically underrepresented identities. This celebration strives to provide a sense of community by bringing our diverse student body together to honor their successes and to recognize this step in their life journey.

When and where will the unity celebration take place? 

Due to Covid-19, the Commencement Unity Celebration will be held virtually this year. The Celebration video will go live on Sunday, May 16, 2021.

Do I need to apply to participate in the Commencement Unity Celebration? 

Yes! This is an application process and does not guarantee you a spot in the ceremony or a stole/cord. While we would like to provide a stole/cord and celebrate every graduating senior or graduate, stoles/cords are limited so please apply early!

Where can I find the registration form? 

Application will be available March 30 - April 26, 2021. Students who registered for graduation through the Registrar's Office will receive an email with application information in March. 

When is the deadline to apply? 

The deadline to apply is April 26, 2021. Once the application closes no late applications will be accepted.

Can we sign up to have our stoles/cords delivered or picked up? 

Upon confirmation, students will be sent more information on receiving their symbolic stole/cord.
