Lavender Graduation 2019: Registration

Pulitzer Hall
Joseph D. Jamail Lecture Hall, 3rd Floor

The Lavender Graduation ceremony celebrates our graduating undergraduate LGBTQ and allied students in Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies, and Barnard College. 

First started at the University of Michigan in 1995, the ceremony is now conducted at hundreds of universities nationwide, including Princeton, Duke, MIT and NYU. The color lavender, adopted by the gay movement in the 1960s, is the main color of Sayville (Gayville), NY. Sayville is near Fire Island, where the veterans of Stonewall hung out. This history of New York is honored during the ceremony as our graduates prepare to make history of their own.
