UCLA Latino Alumni Association to support Latinx Grad

Sun 6/16/2024 • 6PM PDT

Pauley Pavilion

The Latinx Graduation at UCLA was created after In 1972, a small group of Latinx students walked out of their Letters and Science commencement ceremony in response to the lack of cultural relevance, the English-only environment that did not allow for their families to understand, and the limited amount of tickets that prevented all of their family members to attend. Since 1973, Latinx Graduation (previously known as Raza Grad) has provided a culturally empowering ceremony including English and Spanish speakers and performances representing historical traditions from various parts of the Americas.

This ceremony is open to all 2024 graduating student: undergraduate, graduate, Doctorate, JD and MD graduates.

Although the graduation celebrates Chicanxs and Latinxs, participation is not limited by area of study, ethnic background, or national origin. We aim to create an inclusive space that celebrates our intersectional identities while cultivating a sense of unity.
