Affinity Graduation Celebrations

The Affinity Graduation Celebrations honor the accomplishments and experiences of CSUMB graduates from historically underrepresented backgrounds. Affinity Grads are free for graduates, their guests, and the campus community. There are eight CSUMB Affinity Graduation Celebrations for graduating students, they are: 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. We invite students to participate in the Spring 2020 Affinity Graduation Celebrations! A free graduation stole will be included at the ceremony.
