The President of the United States, Donald Trump, is the recipient of several honorary degrees. Robert Gordon University has rescinded the degree conferred upon him, and Lehigh University is currently considering doing the same.
In 2004, the President was awarded an honorary doctorate from Wagner College, making him an alumnus of the institution. In light of the President’s conduct, the Wagner College faculty has petitioned the Board of Trustees to rescind his degree. This request was subsequently denied.
We, the undersigned students, alumni, faculty, and staff request the Board of Trustees rescind Donald Trump’s honorary degree.
Here is an additional letter from alumni to the Board of Trustees.
