These celebrations supplement the traditional UM graduation and are also held during graduation week to express appreciation for the achievements, commonalities, and cultural differences that characterize the experiences of Middle Eastern/North African, African diasporan, Latinx, Asian/Pacific Islander diasporan, and Native students.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellation of physical graduation ceremonies in 2020, OAMI is honoring our 2020 graduates and broader communities with graduation viewbooks and custom webpages created with the input of hundreds of students, faculty, and staff.
The release schedule for these viewbooks and webpages is detailed below.
May 15: First Generation Graduation
June 2: Middle Eastern/North African Celebration
June 4: Native Student Celebration
