The IDEAS Center is excited to invite faculty and staff to the annual graduation celebration. This year, our ceremony will be held in Ford Chapel on Tuesday, April 21, at 6 p.m. Graduation Celebration is an opportunity for our affinity organizations under the Culture, Identity and Leadership Coalition to celebrate their seniors. Seniors receive stoles from their respective organizations as well as IDEAS Center chords. A dessert reception will immediately follow in Tippie. During this event, we have a few awards that are given to seniors. If you’d like to nominate a senior, please use this link. Students can be nominated for multiple awards.

We are also beyond excited to announce our first annual First-Gen Pinning Ceremony. This ceremony will recognize the incredible accomplishments of our First-Generation Seniors by recognizing them and giving each student a gold alumni pin. First-Generation families and friends will also be invited to share in this celebration. Our pinning ceremony will take place in Ford Chapel on Saturday, May 9, at 10 a.m. There will be a brunch reception immediately following. Please feel free to register for one or both events using this link. Please reach out to Angelica at for any questions or additional information.
