An investiture is a formal ceremony recognizing the official designation of a university president. Typically held during or at the end of the president’s first year in office, the investiture confers the authority and symbols of the office upon the president. This academic inauguration allows the campus community to mark the beginning of a new era and formally welcome the new president.
