Historic day: Investiture is this afternoon!
Today's Investiture will open with brief performances by pianist Theron Brown (top), the University Symphonic Band (middle) and dancer Erica Piper (bottom), all pictured at last night's dress rehearsal. Solaris, the faculty woodwind quintet-in-residence, will also perform.
More than 1,000 students, faculty, staff and civic leaders are expected to attend. The event is free and open to all. No tickets are required, but we ask that you reserve a seat.
The hour-long event will begin at 4:30 p.m. at E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall. A community reception will begin at 3:30. Join us!
