Lavender Graduation

Lavender Graduation is an affinity graduation ceremony celebrating LGBTQ+ and ally graduates and their accomplishments, achievements, and impact at UT. We welcome graduates of ALL levels (graduate and undergraduate students) to participate. The ceremony is an optional ceremony open to everyone that supports the LGBTQ+ community at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Non-graduate attendees do not need to register to attend as a supporter.

Lavender Graduation 2023: Wednesday, April 26, 2023 at 5:30pm – 7:30pm in the Student Union Ballroom

All LGBTQ+ and ally students graduating in 2023 (May, August and December) are welcome to participate as graduates and receive an individualized Lavender Graduation certificate, a lavender stole, and other goodies in a LavGrad gift package.

Upon successful completion of the graduate registration form, you will receive an email confirming your registration receipt. If you do not receive a confirmation email, we did NOT receive your registration and you will NOT be featured as a graduate. Please double-check your own records before contacting us. Thanks!

The graduate registration deadline has not been set. Check back in February 2023.
