This petition had 215 supporters

Amidst the racial actions of the president of the institution through a cultural dinner held for students of color, Lipscomb University should not be deservant to host any commencement ceremonies. On May 23rd, Hillsboro’s ceremony is planned to be at Lipscomb. However, with the signing of this petition, you create a voice to a problem that may go un-acknowledged and also become an advocate in getting the ceremony’s location changed.

If you did not know...On Spetember 15th, President Randy Lowry invited serveral African American students over for a dinner to discuss their experience at Lipscomb. At the dinner, there were cotton centerpieces on the table and the students were served soul food. On top of that, a Latino student gathering the night before allegedly had tacos as the main course. President Lowry has attempted to apologize. However, these action can not be swept under the rug.
