La Raza Graduation Ceremony
Thank you for your interest in the Raza graduation which highlights and celebrates our Hispanic/Latinx identities on campus!
The Multicultural Center collaborates with numerous departments, in addition to cultural and ethnic student groups, to coordinate culturally-based graduation ceremonies that complement the University’s commencement celebrations. These cultural celebrations acknowledge the value and uniqueness of underrepresented student experiences and serve to commemorate and highlight the accomplishments of individuals within a familial and cultural context.
La Raza Graduation is a bilingual graduation celebration that features traditions of Latino identities. The ceremony includes various Latino cultural elements and graduates are given the opportunity to publicly thank individuals who have helped them throughout their educational career. La Raza Graduation is a chance for friends and family to join students in celebrating their success at navigating the challenges of college in the spirit of Latino culture.
La Raza Graduation Celebration was originally created by Latino students, staff, and faculty at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1973. It was a proactive strategy to restore pride, heritage, and sense of purpose to Latino students.
Today, La Raza Graduation has spread to many campuses. At the University of North Texas (UNT), the first-ever Raza Graduation occurred in 2012. It was organized by a small group of committed individuals from a student organization called MUEVE who formed partnerships with faculty, students, and staff to organize the event. The Multicultural Center has adopted the graduation as part of their yearly programming and works directly with a student-led planning committee.

El Centro de la Raza has experienced and celebrated the graduation of our UNM Raza students since its inception in 1969. To memorialize this day, in 1994, El Centro de la Raza began the tradition to celebrate our graduates and their families. We recognize that graduating from any academic program is an effort in which the entire family partakes, and we celebrate everyone for the effort and the struggle that “getting an education” entails. For us, the El Centro staff, Raza Graduation is a reaffirmation of our commitment to continue being there for our students, so when the time comes, we can all celebrate the dreams and hopes of our students and their families.
Raza Graduation is not an alternative to UNM's general commencement, and/or any departmental celebration, but rather a personalized and cultural celebration from us to us. By achieving this accomplishment, we are honoring the efforts and the sacrifices that our ancestors experienced, so we could be where we are at today. The Mexican proverb says “ con calma y nos amanecemos”, which means let's be calm and take our time because time will come anyway. So, whatever we do, we do it well so we can honor our gente, our history and our culture. Nema, poco a poco, as the ancient ones would advise us, to move forward with our vision of the future … nema, poco a poco. Congratulations to all of those who will be graduating and let's keep in mind that when this day comes podemos gritar a pulmón ¡ Si Se Pudo Raza!!!!
If you meet the criteria for graduation, check in with us in the Spring to register so we can celebrate your accomplishment together!

There was no feigned bravado in his behavior. He did not try to appear more mature than he was. In general, he was cute. Therefore, I decided to diversify my today's menu a little.

I imagined how she begs me not to tell anyone about what happened, and we are solving this issue. I imagined how, without saying a word, I just take it and fuck her hard, finally. In general, yes, to be honest, every imaginary conversation I had with my sister ended in violent sex. But the reality turned out to be a little harsher than.
