What is Rainbow Graduation?

  • Something you would invite your family, chosen family, close friends and/or those most important to you
  • An opportunity to honor YOU
  • Your formal induction into the ranks of SJSU LGBTQ+ Alum
  • Although many people do get dressed up for the event, it tends to be a queer little get together, with all the uniqueness of our community, so be yourself ;-)
  • Something that has GREAT food
  • Something you’d ask a favorite professor, staff member or those who have made a great positive impact on your experience at SJSU to attend
  • Lots of fun
  • The event where you get a Rainbow Tassel (Woo Hoo!)

How Do I participate? Am I eligible?

  • If you are a graduating senior or graduate student in Fall 2017, Spring 2018, Summer 2018 or Fall 2018, you are eligible to participate in this year's celebration.
