2021 Affinity Graduation Celebrations

Affinity Graduation Celebrations honor the accomplishments and experiences of CSUMB graduates from historically underrepresented communities. There are eight CSUMB Affinity Graduation Celebrations for graduating students: Asian, Pacific Islander (API) Grad; Black Grad; Chicanx/Latinx Grad; Native American Grad; Students with Disabilities Grad; Rainbow (LGBTQ+) Grad; Undoc-U (Undocumented) Grad; and Veteran Student Grad.

These celebrations will offer a keynote as well as a personalized slide for each graduating student, which can include the graduate's name, major, a photo, personal message, designation of first-generation status, and any honors. This slide will be part of a virtual graduation ceremony that will be made available via the Otter Student Union YouTube channel on Friday, May 21, 2021.

Graduates who register and provide complete mailing address information will receive a stole for completing their participation.

All information for Virtual Affinity Graduation Celebrations is due by Friday, April 23. For questions, email
