Como comunidad Latinx en esta universidad, deseábamos crear un espacio para reconocer y celebrar los logros y éxitos de todos los graduados. Sinembargo, sabemos que el camino que han recorrido para llegar hasta aquí no ha sido fácil. Entendemos los sacrificios que ustedes como estudiantes y sus familias han hecho, los obstáculos que han tenido que superar, y las adversidades que han enfrentado.
