Affinity celebrations are student-led, staff-supported events that recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of graduates from marginalized and underrepresented communities.
These University-wide celebrations provide an opportunity for graduates to honor those who have helped them achieve their milestones while centering their cultural traditions and values.
Affinity celebrations are open to all Harvard graduates who pre-register to attend. The celebrations include keynote speakers, performances, and cultural celebrations. Graduates receive a regalia accessory or commemorative gift created for their affinity group.
The affinity celebrations are in addition to Harvard University's 2024 Commencement and School-based graduation ceremonies and are managed separately. Once available, details about the events and registration will be shared here as well as on the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging website.
