Students of Color Recognition Ceremony

The University’s annual Students of Color Recognition Ceremony is held to honor the experiences and accomplishments of undergraduate and graduate students of color. 


The 2019 ceremony will take place on Thursday April 25 at 1:00 PM in the Memorial Chapel on the Redlands campus. Participation in the ceremony required an RSVP by March 18th, 2019. The stole is a gift from the University made available to those who participate in the Students of Color Recognition Ceremony.    


This year for the first time, both graduate and undergraduate students will take the stage with a mentor/friend/family member of their choosing who will impart the stole on the graduate. Detailed information about the program will be emailed to confirmed participants no later than Monday, April 1, 2019.
