Building the Village of the Future.

“We rejoice with our graduates celebrating through song, dance and the spoken word,” says Jasmine Buxton of the African-American Cultural & Research Center.

UC Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Mitchel Livingston will give the welcome. The keynote speaker will be Faith Daniels, Radio One personality on MoJo 100.3 FM.
