Undocumented Graduation Viewbook Cover


The undocumented student graduation celebrates the University of Michigan’s undocumented graduates at the conclusion of each academic year. During this event, the cultural significance of this community is recognized, along with students’ achievements, while providing an incentive to future students to reach the ultimate goal of graduation.

This event allows for graduating students to celebrate their accomplishments with those who supported them during their academic journey, including friends, family and community members, and U-M faculty, staff and administrators.

If you would like to participate in the ceremony or as a member of the planning committee for 2023, contact program coordinator Hector Galvan at hgalvan@umich.edu.
