Raza Grad Celebration

Raza Grad Celebration is a culturally empowering ceremony including speakers in English and Spanish and performances representing historical traditions from throughout the Americas. Raza Grad celebrates the diversity of the Chican@/Hispanic/Indigenous/Latin@ culture. The graduation celebration is open to all San Diego Mesa College graduating students who value the access to higher education and retention of our communities. Participation is not limited by area of study, ethnic background or national origin.

Dear Raza Grad students and community,

We regret to inform you due to the current situation with COVID-19, our Raza Grad 2020 event, which was supposed to take place on Saturday, May 2, 2020, has been cancelled.  The committee's first priority is the safety of students and their families, as well as all of those who participate to make the event happen.

As you may know, there are federal and state prohibitions against large group assemblies and due to the need for us to give timely notice to the vendors who participate in the event, we have no choice but to cancel.

The committee congratulates you on your achievements and wishes you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
