In the Fall of 2018, a group of student leaders from various organizations at Texas A&M University came together to create the inaugural Latinx Graduation Ceremony in May 2019. They saw the need to recognize & celebrate the accomplishments of the Latinx community in a bilingual & inclusive format for the families who have sacrificed so much. In June of 2019, the Latinx Graduation Coalition was created. The purpose of the Latinx Graduation Coalition is to unify leaders & organizations while establishing long-term sustainability to ensure the success of the Latinx Graduation Ceremony.
