Affinity Celebrations

Affinity Graduation Celebrations honor the accomplishments and experiences of CSUMB graduates from historically underrepresented communities. There are nine CSUMB Affinity Graduation Celebrations for graduating students: Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Grad; Black Grad; Chicanx/Latinx Grad; Family Friendly (students with children), 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.

Registration for Affinity Graduations is now closed. If you have questions please email
