CSUMB affinity graduates were honored at stole ceremonies
May 23, 2023
Nine Stole Ceremonies were held May 6-19 at CSU Monterey Bay. Most took place in the Otter Student Union.
The ceremonies highlighted the accomplishments and experiences of CSUMB graduates from historically underrepresented communities:
- Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA)
- Black/African Heritage
- Family Friendly (students with children)
- Native American
- Students with Disabilities (SADE)
- Rainbow (LGBTQ+)
- Undocu-Otters (undocumented students)
- Veterans (U.S. Armed Forces)
Formerly known as affinity graduations, the events awarded stoles and certificates for participating graduates. All but one of the events were held in the Otter Student Union. The Chicanx/Latinx ceremony required a larger venue and took place at the Monterey Conference Center.
