An investiture is defined as the “formal ceremony of conferring the authority and symbols of high office.” It is held during the new president’s first year in office, or at the conclusion of the first year. It is an academic ceremony which is viewed as an opportunity to welcome a new era and celebrate as a community. All faculty, staff, students and friends of the University, as well as those who have been invited as official delegates and special guests, are welcome.
