The University honors graduating LGBTQ students and allies by hosting an event that recognizes their leadership, achievements, and contributions to the campus community. Participants receive a rainbow graduation cord to wear at their commencement ceremony, alllowing them to showcase their pride as a distinguished member of the UM family.
