American Indian Convocation


This year’s virtual recognition on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 6:00 pm will recognize the accomplishments of all American Indian students receiving undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees from UNM-Main Campus within the following semesters: Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021. It’s also an opportunity for graduates to recognize their family, friends, tribal leaders, UNM Faculty and Staff, and others that have provided support and encouragement during their university experience. This virtual event is a personal and cultural celebration and is intended as an additional avenue to acknowledge this significant educational milestone for American Indian students. Students are encouraged to participate in the UNM General Commencement as well as their Department-specific commencement exercises.

 AISS requests that graduates confirm their participation by 5:00 pm on Friday, May 7, 2021. Please remember to complete the 2021 American Indian Graduates Recognition Biography Form – the information provided will be posted online in addition to the individual photo each graduate chooses to upload.
