Lavender Graduation, formerly known as Rainbow Ceremony, celebrates LGBTQIA+ students' accomplishments at UC Santa Cruz. We welcome all graduating students, both undergrad and graduate, to participate. Families and friends are invited to attend.

We will be honoring UCSC community members who have demonstrated outstanding advocacy and/or service with and for the Queer and Trans community at UCSC. If there is a Queer or Trans undergraduate, graduate, staff, or faculty member that has impacted your life at UCSC, we encourage you to nominate them!
