Representatives from the USCIS Raleigh-Durham Field Office will administer the oath of allegiance and present the candidates their certificates of naturalization.

Ron Strauss, executive vice provost and chief international officer, will provide welcoming remarks, and Adnan Džumhur, associate director of the Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies, will provide remarks on his path to citizenship. The UNC Color Guard will present the colors as Cadence, an all-female a cappella group at UNC, sings the national anthem.
