Invest in Us

The University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee LGBT Resource Center is committed to enriching the campus experience and developing students as individuals and members of communities using sexual orientation and gender identity and expression as our framework. Our work is accomplished through student-centered education, outreach, advocacy, and support. An investment in the LGBT Resource Center can help us succeed in our vision of creating an inclusive campus, free of discrimination and where social justice inspires community engagement and equality.

Each year, we celebrate graduating LGBTQ+ students and their allies at our annual Lavender Graduation. Each year, Lavender Graduation has been our chance to recognize and celebrate individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to UWM LGBTQ+ communities.

The UWM community and alums are invited to attend, and we would love to see you there! The catered, celebratory evening also features a keynote speaker. If you are a UWM alum interested in being a keynote speaker, please contact us.

This general fund assists the Center’s mission of support, education, and advocacy. Funds may be used to support programs such as films, workshops, training, and other important resources available to our UWM students and community. An investment in the UWM LGBTQ+ Resource Center can help us succeed in our vision of creating an inclusive campus that’s free of discrimination. All proceeds from this fund directly benefit our UWM students and community.
