Multicultural Graduation Celebration


CORE hosts the Multicultural Graduation Celebration (MGC) to acknowledge the achievements of graduating students of color, both domestic and international students, at EMU. This event also celebrates the rich culture of our diverse student body; from the music, performances, speeches and more.

This is a free event that occurs the Friday before commencement in December and April.

Students who participate also receive a stole of their choosing. CORE invites all students, graduates, parents, families and friends to be a part of this grand celebration. Note: If you are completing your degree in the summer, you can participate in April’s MGC.
