Lavender Celebration

This is a past event.

Lavender Celebration is an annual event to recognize students, staff, and faculty for their contribution to campus LGBTQ+ inclusivity, support, and awareness. During the event, awards will be given out to current and graduating students and faculty and staff. Graduating students will also receive a lavender graduation cord to wear at commencement to highlight their achievements.
