What is the Latina, Latino and Latinx Graduation Ceremony?

The Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Latina/o/x Graduation Ceremony is an annual tradition to honor our impending Latina, Latino, and Latinx students graduating with their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The Fall ceremony recognizes graduates from for the Fall semester, and the Spring ceremony recognizes graduates from the Spring and upcoming Summer semesters.

The purpose of this event is to provide a culturally responsive graduation experience for MSU Denver’s Latina/o/x graduates. The evening’s festivities will include a keynote speaker, cultural entertainment, recognition of the graduates and their families, a presentation of the Espíritu de Aztlán Award, and cake and punch to conclude the celebration.
