Black Graduation has a long standing history within the university and is a celebration of the accomplishments of CC, SEAS, GS, and Barnard Black graduates. Black Graduation was first initiated by students who wanted the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments and recognize the important role that Black students have played in shaping the landscape of Columbia. Black Graduation is sponsored and hosted by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Black Students' Organization, and Black Alumni Council. This Rites of Passage ceremony provides an intimate setting for family, friends, alumni, faculty, staff, and students to recognize the accomplishments of the graduates while embracing their new important roles as Columbia and Barnard alumni.
