Since its inception in May of 2000, the Rainbow Graduation Celebration has celebrated the achievements of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students, as well as their advocates.
This annual event honors both undergraduate and graduate/professional students who graduate in the Fall or Spring semester. The Rainbow Graduation Celebration features presentations or remarks by UI faculty, staff, students, and community members, and is followed by a reception.
All spring, summer, and fall 2023 graduates are invited to participate and the entire Iowa community is invited to attend.
