Rainbow Celebration & Awards Ceremony

The LGBTQ+ Resource Center is proud to host the Annual Rainbow Celebration & Awards Ceremony. We recognize that LGBTQ+ students often face a unique and challenging road on the journey to graduation, and extra time should be taken to acknowledge the hard work and determination that are put forth by graduating LGBTQ+ students to reach this momentous occasion. Rainbow Celebration provides an opportunity to honor and celebrate graduating LGBTQ+ and Ally students for their accomplishments, efforts, and contributions while in attendance at Kennesaw State University. 

Awards Ceremony

Rainbow Celebration provides an opportunity to not only acknowledge graduating students but to also recognize members of the KSU community who have made positive contributions to the LGBTQ+ community on campus. The seven Rainbow Awards can be viewed below.

    • Pride Leadership Award: The most prestigious of the awards, this honor recognizes a student’s extraordinary service and outstanding leadership in helping to build the LGBTQ+ community, promote LGBTQ+ issues, and raise awareness at KSU and the greater community.
    • Emerging Leader Award: Each year, it is of the utmost importance for new leaders to emerge and step up to serve the community through leadership. This award acknowledges not only the potential but the amazing qualities of an up-and-coming leader in the LGBTQ+ campus community.
    • Safe Space Award: This award recognizes a faculty or staff member who uses their Safe Space training and position at KSU to provide an extraordinary level of support to the LGBTQ+ campus community.
