What is the Donning of the Kente Celebration?

The Donning of the Kente celebration recognizes the accomplishments of graduating students who have engaged in CMSS umbrella organizations, programs, and services while at James Madison University.

Due to COVID-19, we can not celebrate this occasion as we would have wanted; which ordinarily is an in-person ceremonial rite of passage of donning (putting on) the Kente Stole surrounded by your peers and community members. Still, we want to make sure students can receive a stole to be worn with their regalia and be celebrated.

If interested, please use the registration button to give us your information so that we can mail you your stole.
