Lavender Graduation

April 19, 2017 1:04 pm

The College of Staten Island Division of Student and Enrollment Services invites you to attend the Sixth Annual Lavender Graduation Reception on Wednesday, May 24 at 4:00pm in the Gordon and Lorraine DiPaolo Conference Room (Building 1A, Room 406).

The Lavender Graduation Reception honors the achievements of graduating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students at the College of Staten Island. Lavender provides a safe space to honor those graduating students, not only for their scholastic achievements, but for their successes, challenges, obstacles, and personal 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.

Lavender is open to graduating LGBTQ+ students as well as LGBTQ faculty, staff, and alumni who have not been honored before.

Register online.

We ask anyone who would like to attend to help honor our graduating students, faculty, staff, and alumni to please RSVP at the above link as well.

Please share with any graduating students who may be interested  in attending.

In 1995, the first Lavender Graduation ceremony was coordinated at the University of Michigan by then LGBT Campus Resource Center Director Ronni Sanlo. Dr. Sanlo realized that LGBT students needed to be recognized for “not only their achievements but for surviving their college years” (Sanlo, 2000).
