Lavender Graduation celebrates Louisiana State University's LGBTQ+ community and honors the academic achievements of graduating LGBTQ+ and allied students. The Lavender Graduation Ceremony does not replace the students' commencement; instead it is a presentation of their lavender cords which can be worn during their LSU graduation ceremony. The event features a welcome from the LGBTQ+ Project Staff and University administration, a keynote speaker, and presentation of the lavender cords. Students may choose who they wish to present their cord and this event is open to the public.
