2020 Graduate started this petition to S. Bruce Dowton

Dear Vice Chancellor,

We are writing this petition in the hope you will rethink the decision to completely cancel rather than postpone the April graduation ceremonies.

We completely agree with the decision to cancel the ceremony in April however we believe that just like every student before us will and every student after us will we deserve the opportunity to have the long awaited graduation ceremony. Hence, we ask that you reconsider cancelling it all together but rather postpone it until the September graduation ceremony.

Put simply, graduation is a sacred academic tradition. Amongst the early mornings, late nights, stresses and everything in between that comes with completely a degree our graduation day is the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. It is the day we look forward to finally being able to celebrate our academic achievements.

A graduation ceremony is equally important to our nearest and dearest who have waited some 4-5 years for this once in a lifetime event. Place yourself in their shoes; how often do you get such an extreme emotional experience of seeing your child or loved one bookending an important period of their life?

Please do not take this experience away from us.

Regards,

MQ Graduates of 2020.
