Rainbow Graduation & Pride Awards


Speaker: Loretta Fitzgibbons, RU-Newark Alum

Hosted by the LGBTQ & Diversity Resource Center, the Rainbow Graduation & Pride Awards is the culminating event of each academic year. Many LGBTQA students strive for success during their college years, while dealing with the various obstacles involved in the coming out experience, transition, and various forms of intolerance. We want to honor students for their strength, determination, resilience and exceptional leadership in the face of these obstacles and celebrate the rich diversity that comprises our community. This auspicious occasion honors the remarkable leadership of our students, looks at the year in retrospect, and gives us the opportunity to congratulate our graduating seniors as they take their next step.

Seniors are asked to pre-register for the event. We are also currently accepting nomination forms for the 2012 Pride Awards. Senior Registration and Nominations forms are available at our office, Conklin Hall 232. Forms are also availabe at www.newark.rutgers.edu/lgbtq
