About the Latinx Graduation Ceremony
Latinx Graduation Ceremony was created by students, for students. As a Latinx community at this university, we wanted a space to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments, successes, and achievements of all the Latinx graduates. More importantly, we know that the journey you have taken to get here has not been an easy one. We understand the sacrifices you and your family have made and the struggles you overcame, but you never gave up. You are a UT Latinx and you have made all of us proud.
This ceremony is a day of celebration for the entire Latinx community.
Esta ceremonia fue creada por estudiantes, para estudiantes. La presencia de los Latinos tiene una larga historia en UT Austin. 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. Aun así, nunca se dieron por vencidos, y como estudiantes latinos de UT, nos hacen sentir muy orgullosos.
Esta ceremonia es un día de celebración para toda la comunidad Latinx.

Can I participate in Latinx graduation?
This semester we will not be hosting an in-person ceremony for graduates due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. However, if you are a Spring 2021 graduate, you can register to receive a free care package this semester!
I graduated in Summer/Fall 2020 and was not able to receive a serape due to a limited amount. Can I receive a serape and/or care package?
Due to supply limitations this semester, serapes and care packages are only available to Spring 2021 graduates. We appreciate your understanding.
