At least 16 students will participate in the University of Wyoming multicultural graduation ceremony Thursday, Dec. 5, at 3 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom.

During the ceremony, the UW International Students and Scholars office will give each graduate a stole that represents the flag of his or her home country. The Multicultural Affairs office will present graduates with kente-style woven stoles that include colors and symbols reflecting the graduates’ ethnicity or culture.

“Multicultural graduation is a wonderful program to celebrate the semester’s many multicultural and international graduates,” says Danee Hunzie, assistant director of admissions. She says the celebration can be viewed via WYOCAST (, allowing many of the students’ families from distant countries to participate.
