For many historically underrepresented and traditionally marginalized students, graduating from college signifies success not only for themselves but also for their family and friends. The IC recognizes the importance of this milestone with intimate ceremonies for the following communities and their allies: Asian Pacific American; Black; Latino; and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and Intersex. These celebrations offer Saint Mary's students the opportunity to publicly thank the people who helped them on their journey. They also honor the importance of overcoming barriers within higher education and affirm the different paths that lead to academic success. Registration Deadline For Spring 2016 is: April 13, 2016 @ 4:30 p.m.
