Notre Dame students are not happy with University President The Reverend John Jenkins after he neglected to wear a mask in a Rose Garden Ceremony last weekend—and some want him to resign–going so far as to propose a petition to the student senate
Their complaint is that this isn’t the first time Father Jenkins has been caught breaking University protocol. Earlier this year a photo showed him, mask-clad, but shoulder to shoulder with students and not adhering to social distance guidelines.
It took just 24 hours for the petition to get the 200 signatures it needed to be considered by the student senate; and while university administration is not beholden to any decision made, the message is clear. Many of the students argue that if Father Jenkins were a student he could already have been expelled. The resolution will get an official vote next Thursday.
