Chicanx Latinx Year End Ceremony

Chicanx Latinx Graduation Ceremony 2020

Attention Seniors!!!! Registration will open today, May 7th.

The deadline to register is May 10th.

This year we will be celebrating virtually!

 Chicanx Latinx Year-End Ceremony (CLYEC) is a community celebration for students of the University of California, Santa Cruz that self-identify with the Chicanx and Latinx community on campus. For over forty years the Chicanx and Latinx commencement has celebrated the academic and cultural successes of graduating seniors with live music, MC, guest speakers, refreshments, and a 3-5 second acknowledgment from graduating students.

48th Annual CLYEC!
Date: Saturday, June 13, 2020
Time: 12:00-1:00PM

Please contact El Centro at, if you have any questions.
Annually, the CLYEC committee is formed by interns, volunteers, and faculty of El Centro, and work diligently to inform graduating seniors of the benefits of graduating with the Chicanx and Latinx community on campus. Since CLYEC has stemmed from a handful of students to a campus recognized commencement, the ceremony includes preplanned meetings, hand-made sashes (Sarapes) workshops, and a last informal gathering named Despedida (Farewell) a few weeks before the commencement. Last year, the Class of 2019 exceeded a little over three hundred students and is expected to continue to grow since the percentage of Latinx at the UCSC campus is growing exponentially every year.
