The inaugural

Founders Day Gala

As a result of the continued rise in COVID-19 cases and the constraints placed on safe in-person gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Monmouth University’s inaugural Founders Day Gala, scheduled for October 16, 2021, in the OceanFirst Bank Center.

Albeit disappointing, this decision was made with the health, safety, and general welfare of all in mind.

Our intention is to provide you and other members of the University community with an intimate and inspiring experience in celebration of our exceptional students, loyal friends and benefactors, and the future generations of students who will benefit from your generosity. We stand by this promise, and look forward to hosting you at this premier event in the future.

In the meantime, we are eager to recognize and honor Trustee Emeritus, Robert B. Sculthorpe ’63 ’15HN, with the University’s highest honor—the President’s Medal. While we regret that we are unable to celebrate Bob’s indelible impact on Monmouth University at this year’s Founders Day Gala, we plan to do so at a future date and time.

Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and support of this difficult decision. And, thank you for your continued loyalty to Monmouth University.

Inaugural President’s Medal Recipient

Robert B. Sculthorpe ’63, ’15HN has been a champion of Monmouth University for more than a quarter century, serving with distinction on the Board of Trustees, while generously supporting diverse initiatives that have strengthened the academic and cultural life of campus.
