The Black Graduation Ceremony was introduced to California State University Northridge in 1972. This annual event gives African-American parents, students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to celebrate the success of our students. Most of our students participating in the ceremony are first generation college students who have persisted against the many obstacles confronting them in their journey toward their degrees. Black Graduation is a student ran organization that values the student voice when curating the ceremony for themselves and peers. This ceremony is funded primary by student fees, along with the generosity of Associate Students, Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Central Office, The University Student Union, and various sponsorships from the community.
Black Graduation's celebration will be taking place Sunday, May 15, 2022 at 4pm.
