Inauguration Planning Committee

The inauguration of President Salovey is the result of the collaborative work and coordination among many faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends. While the program was guided by the Inauguration Planning Committee, it is the hard work of those who gave time and energy so generously that made this weekend possible.
