Rainbow Graduation and Induction into the UC San Diego LGBT Alumni 2018!

Saturday, June 9th, 2018 at 3pm at the Faculty Club!

UC San Diego's Rainbow Graduation is free and open to all students.  However, it does costs money!  Due to a generous matching gift from Dr. Daniel Lee, Class of ‘95, every dollar we receive for Rainbow Graduation will be matched up to $2,500.  That means if we can secure $2,500 we will have $5,000 to support the UC San Diego Rainbow Graduation and Induction into the LGBT Alumni! To make a commitment, please go to the crowdsurf website!

What Rainbow Graduation is:

  • Something you would invite your family/close friends/those most important to you
  • An opportunity to honor graduating undergraduate and graduate students, volunteers and academics
  • A formal induction into the ranks of UC San Diego LGBT Alumni
  • Although many people do get dressed up for the event, it tends to be a queer little get together, with all the trappings of our community, so be yourself
  • Something that has GREAT food
  • Something that over 150 folks usually attend, sometimes more
  • Something you'd ask a favorite professor/those who have affected you at UC San Diego to attend
  • The last formal program of the year from the LGBT Resource Center
  • Lots of fun
  • The event where graduating folks get a Rainbow Tassel (Woo Hoo!)

 What Rainbow Graduation is not:

  • An actual graduation (it is a ceremony and celebration, but folks don't get a diploma or anything, just a nifty certificate)
  • A substitute for attending UC San Diego's undergarduate college, graduate school or professional school graduations
  • Something you would want to miss
