In an effort to generate space for celebrations within the larger graduation event, we invite this year’s graduating class to create an extraordinary gesture (a symbol, sign, or some other way of marking the occasion) that honors not just your milestone, but the cultural and community traditions that have supported you toward your achievement. You may also choose to acknowledge the traditions that you’ve participated in and helped weave throughout campus—so that the University of Utah may always reflect the intersectionality of our student body. Join us in creating new ways of celebrating the whole of us.
Congratulations, University of Utah Class of 2023—we’re so proud of you and can’t wait to see what wonderful things you do next! There’s an old proverb that says: if you want to go fast, go alone—but if you want to go far, go together. Stay connected, reach out, and check on each other, remember that there is strength in your communities, your families, and your friends.
Thank you messages from the graduating class can be viewed in the ceremony booklet.
Congratulations, Class of 2022! As you move into the next chapter in your journey, we hope you will consider the experiences you’ve had at the University of Utah — the first graduation gift — and that it continues to nourish your transformation.
Thank you messages from the graduating class can be viewed on the ceremony program.
