Lavender Graduation

Lavender Graduation is an affinity graduation ceremony celebrating LGBTQ+ and ally graduates as their authentic selves. We welcome graduates of ALL levels (graduate and undergraduate students) to participate.

Thank you for your interest in participating in this year’s Lavender Graduation, and congratulations on all of your hard work to get here! The ceremony is open to everyone that supports the LGBTQ+ community at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and all LGBTQ+ and ally students graduating in 2020 (May and December) are welcome to participate in the graduation ceremony. All registered participants will receive an individualized certificate, a Lavender stole, and a rainbow tassel for graduation. We love you as you are!
