UW Multicultural Graduation Ceremony Set


May 1, 2014 — At least 88 students will participate in the University of Wyoming multicultural graduation ceremony Friday, May 9, at 3 p.m. at the UW Conference Center at the Hilton Garden Inn.

UW President Dick McGinity is the scheduled speaker. 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.

Hunzie says the celebration can be viewed via WYOCAST, allowing many of the students’ families from distant countries to participate.

UW Transit and Parking Services will provide a shuttle from the Wyoming Union to the Conference Center beginning at 2:15 p.m., and will return passengers to the union following the ceremony.  

A schedule of other UW commencement ceremonies, set for May 9-10, can be found at www.uwyo.edu/commencement.
