The annual Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian (MENASA) Community Graduation is a culturally-oriented graduation which allows South, Southwest Asian, and North African identified students to celebrate their academic success at UC Davis with their family and friends.
By providing this more intimate graduation, we also provide a space that recognizes the struggles and hardship that students may have endured being part of a community that is often racially marginalized and encouraging them to treasure and value their cultures and histories.
In the past, this has been presented in the form of Keynote/Faculty/Alumni Speakers as well as allowing space for each graduating student to speak and share their UC Davis experience. If you are graduating this year, sign up to be a part of our June 2022 celebration. More information will be provided by winter quarter.
