Lavender Graduation - Ceremony and Reception
Each semester, the Student Equity & Engagement Center invites you to celebrate the achievements of LGBTQ+ graduating students with their allies, family, and friends!
Lavender Graduation is a time to recognize and honor the accomplishments of graduating LGBTQ+ students. During the ceremony, the LGBTQ+ graduates are given lavender-colored cords to wear for commencement.
*Graduates must reserve a cord and sign up to participate here: https://forms.gle/hWoFQ9TnXBDunczb9
Lavender cords are used due to the historical significance of the color to the LGBT+ community. The color represents empowerment, strength, pride, and community. The cords honor your history and your future as you step into life as a Northern alum.
We acknowledge that not all students may openly wear their cords. If it is required, we empower you to utilize the alternate use of lavender cords: The lavender cord signifies a special honor for students who have exemplified a quiet determination as they have achieved their scholarly goals.
