Lavender Graduation is an annual celebration intended to bring the entire LGBTQ+ community together to celebrate the success of our students. ANY LGBTQ+ student AND ally can take part in Lavender Graduation. Students do not need to have been a member of Spectrum student organization to participate and be recognized.
History of Lavender Graduation
Lavender Graduation is an annual ceremony conducted on numerous campuses to honor lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ally students and to acknowledge their achievements and contributions to the university. The Lavender Graduation Ceremony was created by Dr. Ronni Sanlo at the University of Michigan in 1995. The annual ceremony was created to recognize LGBTQ students and acknowledge their achievements and contributions to the university.
There is no charge to participate or attend. There is no required dress code for friends and families. However, we are asking all graduates participating in the ceremony to wear their cap and gown. Students that participate will receive rainbow tassels.
All faculty, staff, students, family, friends, and community members are welcome!
