NJCU Graduates Should Walk For Commencement 5/16/19

This petition made change with 4,055 supporters!


For the May 16, 2019 Commencement Ceremony, New Jersey City University President and the Commencement Committee have decided, unbeknownst to the Graduating Student Body, that they will NOT give the Graduates the honor of marching into the Prudential Center nor will the Graduates have the Privilege to take their individual honorable walk across the stage while having their names announced. 

Graduating college is a major accomplishment and rite of passage. It is important to properly acknowledge this and allow students to walk and have their names individually read at the main commencement ceremony with all of their family and friends in attendance. 

This has been the tradition at NJCU for many years and we as the student body do not wish for this tradition to change, particularly at a school of this size. We are working hard for the moment to walk across the stage and be recognized at Prudential Center.

We the students, parents, friends and family of New Jersey City University therefore petition President Sue Henderson and the Commencement Committee to change the Commencement Ceremony to allow students to walk and have their names individually read, at the Prudential Center, to acknowledge their accomplishments.
