Lavender Graduation celebrates and recognizes the accomplishments of graduating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and ally students, as well as acknowledges their contributions to the University of Idaho over the time they have spent here. This year, our 2014 Lavender Graduation will be held on Tuesday, April 22 at 7:00 pm in the Commons Clearwater/Whitewater Rooms.

In 1995, Ronni Sanlo, the Director of the University of Michigan LGBT Resource Center, decided that LGBT students needed their own graduation ceremony like that of other racial and ethnic minorities on campus to honor their accomplishments and contributions to the university and to acknowledge the fact that they had survived the college experience. Since that time, many campuses across the country have begun to host their own Lavender Graduations.
