Each year, Lavender Graduation is open to all students graduating in May of that year or earlier who openly identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual or allies. It celebrates the achievements of undergraduate and graduate students who are part of our LGBTQ+ campus, and also gives awards to faculty, staff or administrators who have enhanced the campus climate for LGBTQ+ students. Students receive a certificate and rainbow cord to wear with their academic regalia during commencement and an invitation to join the LGBTQ+ Alumni Chapter.
In 2019, SDSU's Lavender Graduation celebrated 10 years! Read the SDSU NewsCenter story.
