Often times university students from Chicana/o, Latina/o communities are the first to pursue higher education in their families. The Dolores Huerta Graduation Celebration provides these graduating students, their family, and friends a special ceremony to celebrate their accomplishments at CSU Dominguez Hills. Participation in the celebration is voluntary, but offers a unique opportunity to engage in a fulfilling recognition of their sacrifice and dedication as undergraduate or graduate students.
The celebration is bilingual, in Spanish and English, and consists of musical performances, dance, and keynote speakers from the community. Each participating graduate has one minute on stage to thank anyone in attendance, thereby exemplifying the intimacy of the celebration.
The Dolores Huerta Graduation Celebration is a combined effort of student volunteers and departmental support, including, but not limited to, the Chicana/o Studies Department, the Africana Studies Department, M.E.Ch.A de CSUDH, the Chicana/o Studies Association, Al Frente Graduate Studies Association, Latino Faculty and Staff Association, the Multicultural Center, and more.
The Dolores Huerta Graduation Celebration is open to all students, regardless of ethnicity.
