Black Excellence Graduation Celebration

June 08, 2023
5:00 PM EDT - 7:00 PM EDT
Student Learning Centre, Toronto Metropolitan University (341 Yonge St)

Toronto Metropolitan University students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the fourth annual Black Excellence Graduation Celebration, taking place in-person for the very first time.

Join us in celebrating the incredible determination of this year’s Black graduating students. The event will begin with a recognition and celebration followed by a reception.

The theme of this year’s ceremony is: No bootstraps when you’re barefoot. Walk Good!

The theme is a tribute to Wes Hall’s memoir and builds on an address delivered by Karen Arthurton and Sharon Mclean at last year’s celebration. It encourages students to be resourceful, challenge harmful narratives and, ultimately, fail forward.

We will recognize Black graduating students who have committed to their dreams, balancing determination and self-compassion along the way.
