Inaugural International Student Affinity Graduation

Tuesday May 4, 2021
7 pm to 8 pm CST
Virtual via Zoom Webinar

Affinity celebrations, like this one, celebrate the perseverance and achievement in the face of historic and ongoing exclusion and marginalization. This event is to recognize and celebrate the collective experience and achievements of participating international students, to celebrate international educational interchange, and to be in community.

Participating students will be recognized by reading of their names to the group gathered. They will learn from a speaker. They will also receive graduation cords, which can be worn during the university graduation ceremony.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Yashwant Prakash Vyas in advance by email at or call 319-467-1653.
