Lavender Graduation began at the University of Michigan in 1995 with just three graduates. Dr. Ronni Sanlo, then Director of the University of Michigan LGBT Campus Resource Center, coordinated the first Lavender Graduation in order to acknowledge the achievements of LGBTQ graduates. By 2001, there were over 45 institutions holding Lavender Graduation Ceremonies and the tradition continues to expand to additional colleges and universities across the country. The color lavender is historic to the LGBTQA community as it represents a mixture of pink and black, both colors that have been used throughout history to identify LGBTQA people and discriminate against them.
Join us as we honor our Spring 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 LGBTQA graduates in our annual Lavender Graduation on Friday, April 23rd from 5:30-7:00pm. The link is provided in this event. We look forward to recognizing all the successes and bright futures of our LGBTQA graduates with you!
