Tyehimba Ceremony

We Stand As A Nation! 


Since its establishment, the AACRC has hosted an Afro-centric Graduation Celebration designed for graduates of the University of Cincinnati to acknowledge their achievements. The word "Tyehimba" means "We Stand as a Nation" and is not only a recognition of graduates, but an expression of thanks to faculty, staff, family, friends, and the community for their continued assistance in helping students make it to the finish line. The event includes drumming, dancing, call and response, a moving keynote and much more!  

Participation requires a small registration fee which includes your certificate, class picture, t-shirt, and Tyehimba graduation tassel. We can only accept money orders for the registration fee. Personal checks cannot be accepted. Register by completing the form below.

Students who have registered for Tyehimba will recieve further correspondence as spring graduation approaches. Money orders can be mailed to:
