Lavender Graduation

Lavender Graduation is a celebration that recognizes LBGT students’ contributions to the university and acknowledges their achievements throughout their college experience. Students are recognized for their leadership, success, and achievement.

This year (2020) we are merging Lavender Graduation with the Celebration of Excellence so that students don't have to prioritize one marginalized identity over the other.


Lavender Graduation is open to all graduating lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, and queer students. This event is hosted only once a year. Those graduating in Fall or Summer semesters may elect to participate in the Spring Lavender Graduation before or after their expected graduation.
