9th Annual Latina/o Graduation Celebration

The University of Maryland will host the 9th Annual Latina/o Graduation Celebration on May 17, 2013 at the Memorial Chapel. This event allows the university to highlight the successes and achievements of our Latina/o graduates, a community which continues to grow each year. Additionally the event seeks to motivate and encourage future Latina/o Terrapins to reach degree attainment at the Baccalaureate, Master’s, and Doctorate level, as well as provide an opportunity to pay homage to those individuals, including family, friends, faculty, staff, and administrators, who have assisted our students in completing their degrees.

If you are able to attend, please RSVP at our site (using your Directory ID and password),http://www.provost.umd.edu/diversity/latinograduation.

All participating faculty and staff are invited to sit on stage in support of our graduates. We ask faculty to wear full regalia and staff to dress professionally. We will meet by no later than 6:15pm in the lobby of the Main Administration. Once all participating faculty, staff and students have arrived we will assemble on the steps of Main Administration for a group photo. Faculty and staff will lead the processional over to Memorial Chapel. The event is scheduled to conclude by 8:30pm and is followed by a short dessert reception.
