Cultural Convocations are smaller more intimate graduation celebrations that are focused on a particular discipline, skill or culture. Convocations affirm students and include families and friends in a way that is culturally meaningful. All Convocations are open to all graduates from all ten Maricopa colleges who wish to participate. Convocations are open to employees, family and friends of graduates who wish to celebrate with the students. Because of capacity limits, some convocations may limit the number of guests per student. It is important that you register to attend and indicate how many guests you will bring. For planning purposes, you must register in advance.
