Inauguration: It was a wonderful afternoon for the President’s inauguration events on Monday. Thank you to all who participated in or attended the activities and to those who watched the events via the live feed. The march and ceremony included many of our colleagues and students and President Crawford’s remarks were heartfelt and inspiring.
