Unidos Commencement Ceremony was created by students, staff, and faculty at Midwestern State University for students graduating with their Bachelor's or Master's Degree.

The Latinx community at MSU Texas wanted to create an event to celebrate those who are graduating and also those who come from a LatinX background. The majority of First-generation students come from a LatinX background which consists of 38.2% of the students.

Studies have shown that the LatinX community remains the least educated group for multiple reasons. Many Latinx backgrounds deal with numerous struggles and don't always get recognized for their accomplishments, big or small.

For overcoming and showing triumph we want to show our Latinx students appreciation for their hard work and determination.
