Affinity 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; SADE (Student Awareness for Disability Empowerment) Grad; Rainbow (LGBTQ+) Grad; Undoc-U (Undocumented) Grad; and Veteran Student Grad.

These celebrations will offer keynote speakers, performances, and cultural celebrations separate from CSUMB's Commencement.Participation is free and graduates may register for each Affinity Grad they identify with.

Graduates who register for Affinity Grads and provide complete mailing address information will receive a stole for completing their participation. Graduates should note that registering for Commencement does not automatically register them for Affinity Grads.

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