Notre Dame students petition for Father Jenkins’ resignation
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – Some students at Notre Dame are calling for the resignation of University President Father John I. Jenkins.
The petition follows Jenkins’ appearance at the White House on Saturday to witness Notre Dame professor Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination.
The petition criticizes Jenkins for not wearing a mask at the White House, as well as for shaking multiple hands, and taking the trip in the first place.
Each of these three actions is breaking Notre Dame’s COVID-19 rules.
On Monday, Jenkins delivered an apology to the campus for his actions, saying he would be quarantining upon his return to the university.
