What is Lavender Graduation?
Lavender Graduation is a cultural celebration that acknowledges the achievements and contributions of LGBTQ students on UGA’s campus. Through this recognition, LGBTQ students are provided with a positive experience at the university, encouraging them to continue their connections to the university, other students, and other alumnus.
Graduating students, as well as alumni, have an opportunity to participate in the program and receive a Lavender Diploma as well as a gift from the Alumni Association. Two speakers: a student speaker and the keynote speaker, who is usually an accomplished and out LGBTQ alum, deliver addresses to the participants. The LGBT Resource Center and GLOBES recognize strong advocates for the queer community with the Founder’s Award and the Annette Hatton Outstanding Student Advocate Award.
