On Sunday, June, 22, 2014 SVSU will formally install the University’s fourth President, Donald J. Bachand, during an investiture ceremony beginning at 2:30 p.m. Dr. Bachand was selected by the SVSU Board of Control on February 10, 2014, and took office on February 17.
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 has symbolized the pursuit of knowledge since the Middle Ages. Today, universities view investitures as opportunities to welcome a new era and celebrate as a community.
