Multicultural Celebration of Achievement

MCAE Celebration of Achievement

This annual ceremony honors all multicultural undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.  Each student who attends receives a handmade, custom designed, stole created only for our students.




Dear Graduating Students:

Congratulations on your pending graduation!  Wear your stole with pride.

For the 428 students who walked across the stage at Ted Mann on Saturday May 6th, thank you for making that event one of the best in history.

For those you of unable to join us, you were missed.


Did you miss the event and are still interested in getting a stole??

Well, unfortunately, the only way to guarantee receiving a free MCAE Stole, regardless of your event registration status, is to walk the stage during the event.  To be fair to those who missed the event, all remaining stoles go on sale the following week at 9:00am each morning on a "first come, first served basis".  That means when they're gone, they're gone. 

*You may purchase a stole for cost ($20.00/cash) and once again to be fair, we make no exceptions. 

*One stole per student.  No one can pick up a second stole for a friend.  You must sign in to get your own stole.



Event photos are READY.

FYI: The photo collections are random.

As we are not a formal graduation ceremony, the photos are random/candid and as a result not everyone has their photo taken.
The cost of that service is simply not within our budget to achieve.
We do apologize.
