My Iona

Multicultural Recognition Ceremony

Wednesday, April 24, 2024, 5-7 p.m.
Burke Lounge, Spellman Hall

Event details will be posted towards the end of the Fall 2023 semester.

The Multicultural Student Recognition Ceremony is an annual event to celebrate the academic achievements of students from our diverse Iona student community. This University-wide initiative recognizes the unique experiences of students from diverse backgrounds, as well as the significant support and love that families and other important individuals have provided to the student along the way.

Additionally, this event is designed to honor and highlight the multitude of identities, cultures, religions, nationalities, sexual orientations, socioeconomic backgrounds, and abilities of our graduating seniors that make the Iona community a masterpiece.

All graduating students are invited to participate in this time of celebration, but most commonly celebrate underrepresented cultures and heritages attending the University. We celebrate these students’ achievements because of the additional challenge they face as an underepresented group. We celebrate cultural diversity and bestow these stoles in celebration of our students’ heritage, culture, persistence and academic achievement.
