Nyansapo Kente Robing Ceremony Celebrates Student Success May 6, 2022 Written by Caroline Gazzara-McKenzie 1 min read TwitterFacebookLinkedInEmail Hosted by the Black Faculty and Staff Association, the Nyansapo Kente Robing Ceremony celebrates the significant achievement of graduating from The University of Alabama. The ceremony started in 2016 as an initiative to promote retention of undergraduate and graduate students of color, and to celebrate their accomplishments. Family members as well as faculty and staff were invited to attend… along with friends. This year, for the first time, two CrossingPoints students were awarded Nyansapo Kente Robes. Nyansapo is a Ghanaian symbol that represents intelligence, ingenuity and patience. Congratulations to the class of spring 2022!
