Greetings fellow hunkerdowners!
This year marks the Seventh Annual Lavender Awards Celebration. The Lavender Awards celebrate the wonderful achievements of UMBC's LGBTQ+ graduating seniors, graduate students, and their allies. We recognize students as well as the allied alums, staff, faculty, and programs that work to support them. Although we are not able to host any festivities on campus this spring, we believe that there is still a lot to celebrate about our beautifully resilient LGBTQ+ community. Please mark your calendars for a virtual celebration on Tuesday, May 19th at 1pm.
This year’s virtual Lavender Celebration will include a welcome address, keynote speaker, slideshow of pictures and reflections from our graduating students, presentation of the Lavender Awards and farewell messages from staff, faculty, and students.
If you are an LGBTQ+ graduating senior or graduate student (graduating Winter 2019 or Spring 2020), you still have time to submit your photographs, reflections, and mailing address to receive your lavender cord by visiting the following link.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Heidy George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year’s celebration is brought to you by Campus Life’s Student Diversity & Inclusion and the Women’s Center. We look forward to celebrating some of our best and brightest with you!
