The Chicano Studies department and M.E.Ch.A cordially invite you to the 6th Annual Aztlan Graduation. The ceremony will take place Friday, May 18 in the Campus Center Main from 6 – 9 p.m. The Aztlan Graduation ceremony will be honoring those students receiving their Associate’s Degree in Chicano Studies for their courage and determination to succeed. They will be presented with a sash in which they will wear proudly at the college’s commencement. The ceremony is open to all graduates and encouraged to participate for a special recognition. This year the funds raised will go towards the two newly added scholarships presented to AB540 students and M.E.Ch.A members. Please pick up your registration form from the Centro Xican@ located in Bungalow 6.

The deadline to register for the ceremony and apply for a scholarship is Sunday, May 13.

The Chicano Studies Department at Los Angeles Mission College is one of three in all of the nine colleges within the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD). However, we also provide a Chican@ Studies Resource Center and the opportunity to tailor their Associate’s Degree in Chicano Studies to the student’s interests and career goals. In collaboration, with M.E.Ch.A, also one of the most active student organizations within the LACCD district, and the Associated Student Organization (ASO), the department was able to create a scholarship for AB540 students in the early 2000’s. It was one of the first in the nation for college students under AB540.

6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
