St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Charter Day

Charter Day celebrates the founding of Seton Hall in 1856 and the granting of our charter by the New Jersey State legislature in 1861. It is a special annual opportunity to reflect on our history and purpose, our Catholic identity and mission. Each year Seton Hall recognizes outstanding community members who embody the ideals of servant leadership.

With pride, we call attention to individuals selected in 2020 for the Bishop Bernard J. McQuaid Medal for Distinguished Service, the President's Award for Student Service and our Servant Leader Scholars.

Though a ceremony formally recognizing these honorees will be held once the University community returns to campus, we believe it is important to highlight their accomplishments at this time.
