CSI Lavender Graduation Reception

May 14, 2013 2:51 pm

The Second Annual Lavender Graduation Reception will be held on Wednesday, May 29 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm in the Library Archives (Building 1L. Room 216). The ceremony is open to all graduating students in all departments. Additionally, this year, we will be honoring  CSI alumni, faculty, and staff who were unable to participate in a Lavender Graduation Reception when they graduated. Ten spots have been reserved for LGBTQ faculty and staff. 

Please register for Lavender Graduation Reception by Tuesday, May 21. 

To participate in the 2013 Lavender Graduation Reception, please email Amy Rogers, the Coordinator of the LGBTQ Resource Center, at with the following information:

-Your Full Name
-Degree Earned/Major/Course of Study
-Any prior degrees you hold, and from where you received them
-Your plans, post-graduation.
-Optional: Any involvement in the LGBTQ community that you wish to have recognized (leadership positions, projects, programs, research, etc). 

In our second year, the Lavender Graduation Reception is a special graduation ceremony that honors the achievements of graduating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and ally students at the College of Staten Island. We seek to recognize graduating students, former alumni, and current faculty and staff. The Lavender Graduation Reception provides a safe space to honor those graduating students, not only for their scholastic achievements, but for their successes, challenges, obstacles, and achievements navigating their time at CSI as a member of the LGBTQ community. We seek to recognize and honor students, not only for what they have done, but for being who they are.
