Join our Committee!

We are a student-run and student-initiated committee which works towards celebrating and honoring graduating Chicanx and Latinx students. Our goal is to provide a culturally empowering graduation which includes both English and Spanish speakers. We provide performances which represent historical traditions from various parts of the Americas. 

Our ceremony and activities are open to all graduating undergraduates, graduates, Doctoral, and JD graduates. Although the event is geared towards Chicanx and Latinx students, participation is not limited by national origin, ethnic background, or area of study. Join us in the planning of this years ceremony!

Participating in any of our committees counts towards our community service graduation requirement!

Every Monday at 6pm via Zoom
