Multicultural Graduations

Congratulations to the members of the Class of 2020, and warmest welcome to family, friends and alumni joining us for our virtual graduations! In collaboration with student organizations, alumni groups and numerous University partners, Multicultural Affairs has reimagined our annual multicultural graduation ceremonies, which honor the accomplishments of students who have engaged in one or many of Columbia’s diverse communities. In this format, we have greater opportunities to share the celebration, particularly with our international students and with their loved ones from around the globe. Given our newfound reach, we invite you to enjoy a special message from our inaugural International Senior Speaker, Patricia Kusumaningtyas CC’20, who is from Indonesia.

Message from Multicultural Affairs to the Graduates

Congratulations! YOU DID IT! We enthusiastically celebrate the impact you have had on the Columbia and Barnard communities and the legacy that you are leaving behind for the next generation of students. 

As you reflect on your time on campus, and on all that you have done on campus, abroad and in neighboring communities, it is our hope that you will carry your dreams and leadership out into the world. Even in just the past few weeks, we have witnessed countless injustices, including the senseless deaths of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, a resurgence of anti-Asian violence, continued denial of human dignity and safety of undocumented people at the borders as well as in working-class communities and invalidation of queer and trans people’s existence through policy changes. Our world is hurting, and we are confident that you are the leaders and change agents who will bring the world the healing, care, love and justice we all need.

Thank you all for bringing difficult dialogue, urgency for action, groundedness in culture, light and laughter to our campus. We cannot wait to see what you will bring to the world! Congratulations again, Class of 2020!

With gratitude and love, 
Melinda Aquino, Ileanna Casellas-Katz, Avi Edelman, Vanessa Gonzalez-Siegel, Alison Jackson and Jacquis Watters
