Lavender Graduation Application

Lavender Graduation Application for LGBTQ students at UW Oshkosh.

The Lavender Graduation Ceremony was created by Dr. Ronni Sanlo, a Jewish Lesbian, who was denied the opportunity to attend the graduations of her biological children because of her sexual orientation. It was through this experience that she came to understand the pain felt by her students. Encouraged by the Dean of Students at the University of Michigan, Dr. Sanlo designed the first Lavender Graduation Ceremony in 1995. This special ceremony serves to celebrate LGBTQ students and student allies of all races and ethnicities for their achievements and contributions to the university during their tenure. This is a cultural celebration that recognizes the difficulties of achieving in a climate that is often less than desirable for LGBTQ students and allies.

We are excited that you are considering celebrating with a Lavender Graduation at the LGBTQ Resource Center!  We look forward to celebrating your outstanding accomplishment with you!  Please fill in the feilds below.
