Charter Day

Join us as we celebrate Charter Day 2021 on Friday, April 16, 2021.

What is Charter Day?

Every year, Jacksonville University celebrates its birthday and the signing of its charter. In honor of our founding, the University hosts Charter Day, involving service to our community, celebratory activities, and a Global Toast for our friends around the world who cannot be with us in person for the festivities.

Whether on campus or celebrating in your community, students, faculty, staff, and alumni are encouraged to join in the festivities, and wear your green and white with pride.​​

Sign Up for Charter Day

This year Jacksonville University is partnering with Feeding Northeast Florida to provide Dolphins the opportunity to serve our community right here on campus. 

  • Feeding Northeast Florida will set up "snack pack" assembly stations on Swisher Science Green from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. Sign up for one (or more) of the 15-minute time slots available.
  • Pepsi Co. will provide t-shirts, drinks, and snacks for all volunteers. 
  • Come out for a fun morning of celebration, school spirit, and community involvement!
