Lavender Graduation

Thursday, April 19, 2018

6 pm - 8 pm

Location: Adam Herbert University Center

Cost: FREE!

Reserve Your Space

Graduating students, including undergraduates and graduates, are invited to take part in the celebration, which occurs each year  prior to university-wide commencement events. Come celebrate our graduates of the 2017-2018 school year!  


Lavender Graduation is an annual ceremony that takes place on many campuses across the country to honor LGBT and ally graduates. The Lavender Graduation Ceremony was created by Dr. Ronni Sanlo, a Jewish Lesbian and UNF alum, 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 LGBT students.
