CSUMB is pleased to announce that the CSU system, in compliance with the California Assembly Bill (AB) 620, Section 2 (2011), has three new fields for identity information data regarding sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Students now have the opportunity to voluntarily respond to questions about their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression via their Student Center in CMS. Student responses will be kept private and secure, and will be used for summary demographic reporting only (no individual identities will be revealed). Additionally, students may change their responses at any point during the year by returning to the same page in CMS Student Center.
Through your participation, summary demographic reporting will be used to better support all of our student populations. We encourage your response and look forward to more accurately reflecting the identities of our diverse campus community.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Office of the Registrar.

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.
In spring 2021, Affinity Graduations Celebrations will be virtual. 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 vocalized by a professional reader and can be downloaded and shared on social media platforms.
