Lavender Graduation
11 a.m.-1 p.m. April 22
North Wing, Cal U Convocation Center

The Lambda Bridge LGBTQA Program Office invites all LGBTQA and ally students, families, friends and mentors to attend Cal U’s first Lavender Graduation, a ceremony recognizing the accomplishments of graduating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, asexual (LGBTQA) and ally students.

The program will include guest speakers and a luncheon. Business casual dress is recommended; no caps and gowns will be worn.

The event is free, but registration is requested.

Who attends Lavender Graduation?

The ceremony honors undergraduate and graduate students who are completing their degree requirements in May 2014, August 2014 and December 2014.

Each graduate may identify a mentor to honor at the ceremony. Graduates are encouraged to invite faculty, staff, family and friends who have contributed to their success at Cal U. This is your opportunity to honor your allies and mentors.

Students do not have to be LGBTQA or actively involved with LGBTQA issues on campus to participate.

What about the official California University graduation?

Lavender Graduation does NOT replace Commencement. Students who attend Lavender Graduation may walk with their graduating class at Commencement, AND they may wear their lavender stole as a sign of your community pride.
