What is Lavender Graduation?
Lavender Graduation is an opportunity to celebrate the many achievements of our graduating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex students and their allies. This allows us to celebrate the various academic, community, and personal achievements of our LGBTQ+ graduates while acknowledging the unique and challenging experiences that many LGBTQ+ students have had to navigate during their college career.
