Dear Dean Jacobs and Faculty Members:
The outgoing E4 was approach by Valerie Abrahamsen requesting that they take on the role and responsibility of hooding the 2013 graduating class for Commencement. We would like to register our collective disappointment that the faculty will not be doing the hooding. The hooding is a symbolic gesture of students accomplishments, conferring of the degree, and welcoming into the profession. Many of our families are making significant sacrifices to be here for commencement, and we hope to have them see us be hooded when we receive our degree. It important to each of us to be welcomed into the Social Work profession by the faculty that have been our mentors for the duration of our journey.
For these reasons, we respectfully request that this decision be reconsidered.
Class of 2013
