Graduation

The Raza Resource Centro is proud to announce the sixth annual Xicanx/Latinx Graduation ceremony. The event is intended to highlight the achievement of higher education completion in all degree fields for the Latinx student community. Self-identified Latinx students graduating with a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Sciences, Master of Arts, Master of Sciences, Medicine Doctorate, and Ph.D. are eligible to participate. 

In order to better serve our diverse campus community, M.E.Ch.A. and the Raza Resouce Centro will each independently develop a different graduation ceremony, highlighting different areas of student needs and achievements, and collaborate to ensure a timely transition between ceremonies. M.E.Ch.A. will continue to implement the "M.E.Ch.A. de UCSD Raza Graduation", an event that will highlight graduating students who have made a mark in developing and creating social justice and activist-orientated spaces for the campus community.

The Centro will be holding graduation on Friday, June 10, 2022, at 3 PM PST. Students who sign up to participate in the event will receive a free graduation package that includes a graduation sash and program. Students must sign up by Sunday, April 10, 2022, 11:45 pm PST in order to receive a package and participate in the virtual event. In addition to the virtual event, the Centro will be highlight graduates via the Instagram account @RRCXiLatGrad.
