The 2014 Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Charter Day Convocation will take place on Friday April 25, 2014 at 3pm. The events will take place at the Jubilee Hall Auditorium.
The program will include Maxine Lurie, Ph.D., a former professor from Seton Hall University as the keynote speaker and the presentations of the Bishop Bernard J. McQuaid Medal for Distinguished Service.
A committee appointed by the president of the university recommends the McQuaid Medalists.
“The recommendations are made according to following criteria; distinguished service, demonstrated commitment to the Catholic mission and goals of the University, and full-time employment at the University for no less than 20 years, as of December 31 of the prior year. The president then makes the final selection.” Bernadette McVey, one of the Charter Day Committee Chairs said.
The Charter Day Convocation will also be honoring student Servant Leaders.
“This year we have an exciting development that highlights Seton Hall University’s history. The Seton Hall University Archives acquired photos of the family of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American saint after whom the university is named. These photos have been digitized and in celebration of Charter Day, are now available for public viewing.” Associate Director of Media Relations, Margaret McCorry said.
The archived photos are available through the Seton Hall University website.
