Rainbow Graduation

The Rainbow Graduation ceremony is a tradition that was established by LGBT+ Programs (formerly SGDRC) in the spring of 2010 to promote the diverse student populations at New Mexico State University.

Rainbow-colored Academic and Leadership Diversity Stoles are awarded to graduating students (Bachelors, Masters, or Doctoral) who are in the GLBTQ and Ally community, and who have excelled academically and/or have displayed exemplary leadership qualities on campus or in the community.
