Graduation Celebrations

At IWU, we view our diversity-centered graduation celebrations as a privilege. These celebrations not only provide the opportunity to revel in the accomplishments of our outstanding students, but they also provide the opportunity to reflect as an institution on where we are and where we still need to be in regards to diversity on our campus. Currently we have two distinct graduation celebrations that celebrate the diverse identities of students within our community.

Multicultural Graduation celebrates our domestic minority students and the individuals who helped them to navigate through IWU successfully. The 2023 Multicultural senior celebration will occur on Sunday, April 16th 2023 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm in Young Main Lounge.

Lavender Graduation recognizes our members of the LGBQA and TGNC communities and allies and allows these students to speak about the trials and triumphs they experienced while members of marginalized groups on campus. The 2023 Lavender senior celebration will occur on Thursday, May 4th 2023 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm in Turfler Room.
