A Michigan college is coming under fire for hosting five graduation celebrations separated by race, sexuality and gender identity, in addition to the university’s larger commencement ceremony.

Grand Valley State University’s Multicultural Affairs Office lists graduation ceremonies or celebrations for Black students, Asian students, “Latinx” students, Native American students, and “LGBTQIA+” students this April. The university will also have a general commencement ceremony for all students.

The college describes the graduation celebration for “Latino/a/x students” as “an opportunity to come together and acknowledge Laker accomplishments in the spirit and traditions of culture.” Similarly, the Black Graduation Celebration encourages students to celebrate all “that is representative of Black/African American and African tradition, heritage, culture, and legacy.” The ceremony appears to go back to at least 2016.

There is an annual “Native American Graduation Feast” held by the school’s Native American Advisory Council, as well as a celebration just for Asian graduates.

The only celebration hosted by the center that is not based upon race is the “Lavender Graduation” which celebrates “the personal and academic achievements of LGBTQIA+ and allied students”, according to its webpage.

This is just one of many liberal universities that conduct their graduation ceremonies like this especially over recent years.
