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.
