Lauren Ward started this petition to The University of Sheffield

After a tough year of constant lockdowns, lack of support and neglect, we, the students of The University of Sheffield feel we deserve a graduation this summer. On the 21st April, the Head of Events, Wendy Hobson informed final year students of 2020 and 2021 that graduation would be postponed until 2022. With the governments roadmap returning to near normality in June, we are failing to accept the University’s decision. The excuse given that the level of planning is not worth doing as there is a risk of cancellation is not good enough and we deserve better after all our years of hard work (and paying £9,250+ each year). 

We propose to the University that they reconsider their decision and make an effort to put on graduations for the class of 2020 and 2021 this July. If this means holding ceremonies in e.g. smaller groups, outside, socially distanced, then we will accept this. Moreover, we will be happy to participate in the planning and execution of graduation season if it means it can go ahead.

GIVE US THE GRADUATION WE DESERVE!
