11th Annual Arch of Triumph Gala postponed

Johnson C. Smith University has been following the ongoing developments associated with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. While the Arch of Triumph Gala is the highlight of our celebration of the University’s founding on April 7, 1867, we have decided to postpone the gala in adherence to guidance and protocols issued by federal, state and local governments as well as public health officials.

We are disappointed we won’t be commemorating the University’s founding and presenting the Arch of Triumph Award to people and organizations who have positively impacted JCSU; however, public safety is our highest concern. As such, we believe postponing the gala is the right thing to do. Please share this message with others who were to attend the Gala with you.

We are working diligently to set a new date for the Gala this year, and we will inform you as soon as we have completed the details. Please do not hesitate to contact the Division of Institutional Advancement at 704.378.1020 if you have questions.

Thanks for your commitment to Johnson C. Smith University and our 2020 Arch of Triumph Gala. We hope you and yours remain safe and strong during these unprecedented times.
