Multicultural Graduation Registration is Open!

This year’s Multicultural Graduation will be the Thursday, May 4, 2023. Multicultural Graduation is an annual student-centered ceremony that celebrates the diversity in the graduating class. As we have supported our students during their time at NC State, we also want them to feel supported and uplifted as they go out into the world with their degrees. At NC State, this tradition allows community members to pause, reflect and be inspired. While we aim to make this an inclusive space, this event centers the journey of graduating undergraduates, master’s and doctoral students from diverse backgrounds.
