Rainbow Graduation & Pride Awards
Recognizing LGBTQA Graduates & Student Leadership

The Rutgers University-Newark Rainbow Graduation & Pride Awards is held in celebration of our graduating students and recognition of the important contributions students have made to enhance the LGBTQA community here at Rutgers University-Newark. At Rutgers University-Newark, the Rainbow Graduation is the LGBTQ & Diversity Resource Center’s culminating event of the academic year.  We invite speakers, campus administrators/faculty/staff, alumni, parents/families of graduates and the LGBTQA student body to attend a recognition banquet, honoring of our graduating students, and end-of-the-year celebration. Many LGBTQA students struggle through their college years while dealing with the various obstacles involved in the coming out experience, many never having the experience of their university or college celebrating who they are as LGBTQA members of the campus community.

You are cordially invited to attend the 4th Annual Rainbow Graduation & Pride Awards, to be held in the Paul Robeson Campus Center, Rooms 255-257 on Monday, April 26th from 11:30am-1pm.  A reception with hot and cold hor d'oeuvres will follow the recognition celebration. Please contact Maren Greathouse at the LGBTQ & Diversity Resource Center if you have any dietary requirements or accessibility concerns.

We encourage you to attend and support our LGBTQA students.
