Harvard University is set to host a series of segregated graduation celebrations for students in the 2024 academic year, with a new addition being the "Jewish Celebration."

This decision follows the removal of Claudine Gay and a wave of allegations regarding antisemitism at the institution. The university's "Office for Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging" is actively involved in coordinating these separate events.

According to a statement from the DEI office, these gatherings, termed "affinity celebrations," are not official graduation ceremonies but rather events that coincide with graduation. They are exclusively available to graduating students who are required to register for their specific celebration by April 22.

The purpose of these affinity celebrations, as outlined on the university's events schedule page, is to acknowledge and honor the achievements of graduates while celebrating the diverse cultures, communities, and identities within Harvard. These student-led events, supported by staff, aim to highlight the cultural and community traditions of the graduating students, offering a platform to recognize those who have contributed to their success.

The events feature keynote speakers, performances, regalia accessories, and cultural festivities, with participation open to all Harvard graduates who have pre-registered. This initiative is part of a broader movement in higher education institutions focusing on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) aspects of student life.
