The Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement held its annual Graduation Recognition Ceremony on Friday, May 10, 2019, at the Memorial Union. The event was a chance for family, friends and university staff to come together to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating seniors in the division’s scholarship and service programs — many of whom are the first in their families to graduate from college.
