Greetings!

We are delighted to present to you our 2022 college graduates—300+ alumni (our biggest graduating class ever!) who are all ONE DEGREE of change. They did it!

The full list of our graduates is below. We are so incredibly proud of all they've accomplished. We know that they will go on to do great things for themselves, their families, their communities, and the world.

It was a joyful experience for us to be back on campus at most of our partner schools and to witness the return of on-campus graduations as well. Closing out the year with these in-person celebrations provides a much-needed sense of normalcy for our graduates, who have persevered despite the highly unusual circumstances of our time.

Why Your Support Mattered—Especially This Year 

The pandemic has multiplied the obstacles and uncertainty our students face. The opportunity gap has not narrowed but grown. Yet despite all the challenges they've undoubtedly faced throughout their education, our students are beating the odds to earn their college degrees.

Because of YOU, we were able to provide our students with the critical support they needed to get to and through college. Your financial support, volunteer hours, and unwavering belief in the potential of all of our students had a profound and tangible impact:

"Long-distance education and COVID-19 have impaired my academic journey but through 10,000 Degrees I was able to get consultation and able to persist knowing I have people to talk to and relate to ... I would not have the courage to do such programs like NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars unless I had the emotional support from 10,000 Degrees."
-Arvin Carter

Your support directly helps to lift up the next generation of leaders who are actively creating a more just and equitable world.

How We Keep Our Graduates Connected to 10,000 Degrees 

As our college graduates begin this new exciting chapter in their lives, we welcome them to the 10,000 Degrees Alumni Family, and engage them in our Career Success program to network, access career and graduate school advice, and discover job and internship opportunities. We also invite them to be a part of our growing Young Professionals Council, where they can connect with other professionals like themselves, host and participate in alumni programming, and in turn, pay it forward by supporting and promoting 10,000 Degrees.

Please check out The Power of One, which brings to life the stories of our alumni and Fellows, whose lives have been transformed by overcoming countless obstacles to earn their college degree.
"Imagine not having a limit to what you want to do. You're helping the next educator, the next professor, the next nonprofit. There are so many possibilities." -Cinthya Cisneros

This is the power of ONE DEGREE. Having persevered, these alumni and Fellows are using their education to help other 10,000 Degrees students find their own path to and through college. They are the changemakers who embody 10,000 Degrees' bold vision of a world where educational equity is the norm, and where all students can realize their full potential and graduate from college.

All of us at 10,000 Degrees—and our 2022 college graduates—thank you for being ONE DEGREE of change!

Congratulations, College Class of 2022!
