Congratulations BGSA Doctoral Candidates!


On behalf of the Black Graduate Student Association, we would like to celebrate your academic achievement in our 3rd Annual Candidate Rite of Passage Ceremony. Candidate Rite of Passage is our annual ceremony that acknowledges and celebrates BGSA members who have achieved doctoral candidacy (preliminary exam completion) in their respective academic department. Conferred upon each candidate is a charge to continue knowledge creation, mentorship, service to others, and completion of their program.
