Black and Latine/x Graduation Celebration

Time to Celebrate UMBC Black & Latine/x Graduating Students

This evening event celebrates the wonderful achievements of UMBC’s  Black and Latina/e/o/x graduating seniors and graduate students. Black and Latine/x students have been historically underrepresented in post-secondary degree attainment and have overcome incredible odds to succeed and make an invaluable contribution to the wider UMBC community. 


This ceremony is in recognition of this milestone of our Black and Latine/x students as well as an evening to be in community with all the staff, faculty, alumni, and loved ones that have supported them. Seniors and graduate students graduating in Spring and Fall 2022 will be recognized and receive a Black and Brown honor cords, as well as a special CBLA Black and Brown pin! To receive your Black and Brown honor cords and pin, please fill out our Lavender and Black & Latine/x Celebration Social Media Campaign + Graduation Package Form. DEADLINE to receive cords: May 6, 2022 at 9:00a.m. Award categories will encompass student, staff, faculty, and programmatic efforts, and will include recognition for Black and Latine/x community members, as well as their allies.
