QUICK HISTORY OF RAINBOW GRADUATION
Northeastern’s Rainbow Graduation follows the pattern first established at the University of Michigan by Dr. Ronni Sanlo in 1995. Dr. Sanlo, a Jewish Lesbian, was barred from attending the graduation of her children. Dr. Sanlo conceived of the ceremony as a way to recognize and celebrate the contributions that LGBTQ+ students make to their colleges and universities.
