Welcome to the student application for the Lavender Leadership Honor Society. Please read all the text and questions carefully; you will know you've reached the end of a complete application when you get the "thank you for your application" message that indicates you'll be given due consideration.
To be eligible, you must be a current UMD student (grad student, undergrad, etc.), agree to the vision and principles of the Society, and make a commitment to the best of your ability to attend future inductions of the Society (explained in the application).
The next induction will be on campus on Friday, April 28th, 2017 in the Memorial Chapel, from about 4pm to 6pm - please mark this down on your calendar if you are applying.
Our honor society is unusual compared to some in that we are not focused on assessing the calibre of our applicants or trying to create an exclusive or elite space, but rather looking to create a Society of common interest and recognition by looking for a commitment to our vision and principles, and a demonstration of that commitment in action.
We also know that "leadership" can take many forms, and we encourage applications even from those who might not label themselves a "leader," but who have committed themselves in belief and action to supporting individuals or communities around diversity and inclusion in the realms of gender identity and expression or sexual orientation. If you are eligible but you are not approved to become a member, we will be happy to work with you and to encourage you as you demonstrate your commitment to leadership for LGBTQ+ social justice, and so that we may also support you to apply again in the future.
We will be requesting a $25 contribution from inductees to help pay for the Society's expenses (the induction ceremony includes space rental, refreshments, photographer, programs, certificates, etc.), though if needed the contribution is a sliding scale and can also be waived. Nobody will be denied membership for lack of funds.
DEADLINE: Applications are due no later than the end of Friday, March 31st.
Are you a current student at the University of Maryland, College Park? (Answering "yes" is required to be eligible.)
