    Graduating Class of 2021: The Multicultural Center is excited to announce its Donning of the Kente Stole Ceremony, which follows its Inaugural Ceremony last year. This event has a rich history at other colleges and universities and seeks to recognize and honor the success of graduating students from underrepresented backgrounds, particularly students of color. Participating graduates attend a ceremony where they are bestowed with a Kente stole that can be worn at Commencement as a symbol of their accomplishments. This year, the Donning of the Kente Stole Committee will be planning to host an in-person ceremony with graduates on campus (location to be announced) following our Royal Safe Together Plan. We will likely accommodate guests virtually. This ceremony will take place on Friday, May 21, at 4 p.m.

    We invite all graduating students to visit our application on RoyalSync to learn more and register for the event if they feel it applies to them! The direct link to the application is here. The deadline to fill out the application is Friday, April 30 at 4 p.m. We hope you consider applying!

    If you have any questions, please contact the assistant director of Cross Cultural Center, Jose Sanchez at jose.sanchez@scranton.edu or Student Leader of the Donning Kente Stole Ceremony, Committee Samiel Torres at samiel.torres@scranton.edu.
