Biographical Note

Senior Mwambo was established by the Department of Minority Student Affairs in May 1992 as a new tradition to honor Black graduating senior students.  The ceremony, held on the evening before Commencement, marks the transition of Black senior students from their lives at the University of Miami to their new careers or advanced education.  Mwambo is a Chichewa word from Malawi in East Africa, which means ceremonial rite of passage.
