About Black Grad

On June 1, 2024, the NouLa Centre for Black Students, the Concordia University Alumni Association and the Black Alumni Network will be hosting its annual Black Graduation Celebration! 

The Black Student Graduation Celebration is a moment to recognize and celebrate Concordia’s Black graduates for their hard work, contributions and achievements, and to usher them into a strong network of fellow graduates, faculty, staff and alumni.

The celebration is also a moment to pay homage to the many generations of Black Concordia graduates who have paved the way.

The ceremony does not replace the spring convocation. Consult Concordia's convocation page to learn more about the convocation ceremonies. Note that you must apply to graduate separately.

When you register as a Black Graduate, you are added to the NouLa Centre celebration's guest list and Black Graduation communications mailing list and will be notified once the Black Grad Celebration tickets become available. However, your ticket for the celebration will not be secured upon registration as a Black Graduate. You are still required to register and secure a ticket for yourself and for your guests once tickets are made available.

Each graduate will be able to invite two guests. You may also invite a faculty or staff member who had a major impact on you during your time at Concordia. 

No, you do not need to wear your gown to the celebration. Just come dressed to impress!
