Multicultural Student Affairs will host three ceremonies for graduating students in the coming weeks.
Lavender Graduation on May 25 celebrates and affirms LGBTQIA graduates in co-sponsorship with NUGALA, Northwestern’s Gay and Lesbian Alumni organization. Participating students also receive a rainbow tassel and stole to wear during commencement.
On June 16th, The Journey of Our Years (The JOY) Black congratulatory and Latinx congratulatory will take place. The JOY recognizes and celebrates Black graduates, and the Latinx Congratulatory celebrates graduates in the Hispanic/Latinx community, sponsored by Multicultural Student Affairs, Latina Latino Studies Program and the Latino Alumni of Northwestern. Both emphasize undergraduate students, but are open to other graduates as well.
