Investiture means to formally invest a new leader with the authority of office, including the proper symbols and clothing. The term comes from the Latin verb, vestire, which means to dress, and vestis, which means robe. Use of the term for the formal installation of new leadership dates to feudal times.
The Presidential Inauguration Celebration includes special events and activities that will bring together students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community during the period prior to the Investiture Ceremony on May 2, 2014. Please check back for updates to the schedule.
