The Celebration of Black Graduates is the IUPUI Black Faculty and Staff Council’s largest signature program and has grown into the largest event held on the IUPUI campus. This program honors undergraduates, graduate and professional students and is attended by faculty, staff, campus leadership and members of the community from across the city and the state. This celebration makes both current students and graduates feel like an important part of the IUPUI community and illustrates who we are as a university and what success looks like on an urban campus. However, the celebration has outgrown its space and requires additional space, seating, and planning. During the course of this project, a 2,000+ seating venue will be identified and incorporated into the program.
