Multicultural Graduation Celebrations: Graduate Registration
In honor of Columbia’s diverse student community and complementing the school- and University-wide graduation ceremonies, we are proud to also offer Multicultural Graduation Celebrations, which provide a more intimate setting for students who self-identify in a variety of ways. These events invite community members to reflect on personal growth and community experiences that have impacted their time as students through to graduation. All students are invited to participate in these celebrations.
Join one or more of these virtual celebrations. All events also will be recorded and posted online following the events. More information and links to recordings will be sent to all registrants
REGISTER: Participation is open to all Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies and Barnard College graduating seniors. Deadline to register in order to be listed on the website and at the ceremonies is Wednesday, March 31.
GUEST REGISTRATION: Deadline for family, friends, alumni, faculty, staff and other students to register is Sunday, April 4. Guests will receive information, including event links, ways to submit celebratory messages for graduates and more.
