Celebrating the Next Chapter in Syracuse University’s Proud History

On Friday, April 11, 2014, Kent Syverud was inaugurated as Syracuse University’s 12th Chancellor and President. This important moment in the University’s 144-year history included a series of campus ceremonies, events, and celebrations to bring the University community together and mark Chancellor Syverud’s formal installation. The day’s events began at 7 a.m., with students, faculty, and staff joining the Chancellor on an inaugural run across campus and concluded with a campus community celebration on the Shaw Quad. The inauguration also included reflections by U.S. Supreme Court Justice (retired) Sandra Day O’Connor, for whom Chancellor Syverud served as law clerk in 1984.
