Toronto Metropolitan University students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the third annual Black Excellence Graduation Celebration. 

Join us in celebrating the success and achievements of this year’s Black graduating students. 

The theme of this year’s ceremony is “Black flourishing”.  We will recognize the powerful and complex journeys of Black graduating students at the university. We will honour the ways in which this year’s Black students have practiced self-determination and remained firmly rooted in their vision for the future and themselves.   

Are you a self-identified Black graduating student?

If you are a self-identified Black student who is graduating in 2022, we invite you to register by May 27 to have your name included in the Black Achievement Wall. 

Graduating Black students who register will be provided with an exclusive Kente stole to commemorate their achievement courtesy of event organizers (with confirmation of graduation and while quantities last).

Live captioning and ASL will be provided on Zoom
