Anne Aweda started this petition to University of Suffolk

The university has decided to cancel our graduation for the year 2020. This graduation would have been in October, however they have chosen to cancel it and said maybe we’ll graduate with class of 2021.

I understand current situation with the pandemic is unprecedented and everyone is worried about staying safe. However, it is too early for the university to make such drastic decision to cancel graduation for this year. If primary school kids are expected to go back to school in September and pubs are opening, there is no reason the university cannot hold the graduation as long as things do not get any worse. Necessary measures can be put in place to ensure safety. The ceremony can be held in the open while everyone bring their own picnics and seat in their bubbles or there can be restrictions on numbers and awards can be given in batches. These are possible options. 
We worked and waited 3 years, looking forward to this day and to have it all snatched away like that without consideration for what we want is unacceptable.

Please help us sign this petition and make it happen for us!
