Each year we honor graduates (undergraduate and graduate students), faculty, staff and departments for their accomplishments beneficial to UConn's diverse community of gender identities, gender expressions and sexualities. Graduates need to register to participate. Each graduate will receive a special stole and rainbow tassel.

We are honored to have educator Robin McHaelen as our Keynote Speaker. Friends and family are welcome to attend! Also, we need everyone's assistance in nominating deserving candidates for the Lavender Graduation Awards. Please see below for the nomination process.

The event will be held on Friday, April 13th in the Konover Auditorium. Reception and graduate check-in will begin at 6:30pm and the ceremony will be through 8:30pm. Doors will open at 6pm.

Please be a guest at the ceremony to offer congratulations to the graduates, . . . and you are welcome to invite others. Family members and friends are welcome to attend!

Any undergraduate or graduate student who will be graduating in May or August, or has graduated this past December, who wishes to participate in the ceremony will need to PRE-REGISTER by visiting the Lavender Graduation webpage.
