Viterbo will celebrate the inauguration of Glena Temple as the university’s ninth president Friday, April 7, followed by Inauguration Service Saturday April 8.
Inauguration day April 7 will begin with a liturgy in San Damiano Chapel at 1 p.m. The installation ceremony will be held in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre at 3 p.m., with a reception to follow in the Fine Arts Center Lobby. Afternoon classes are cancelled beginning at 12:20 p.m. that day. The Viterbo community is welcome to attend both the events.
President Temple and the members of the Inauguration Steering Committee would like to invite all Viterbo employees to participate in the processional as part of the Inauguration Installation Ceremony. While academic regalia is not required, those employees who have it should plan to wear their regalia. Those not wearing academic regalia should plan to dress appropriately for the nature of the event.
The procession will begin in the School of Nursing Building room 195. All employees who would like to participate should plan to assemble beginning at 2:15 p.m. and should be in place no later than 2:40 p.m. The procession is scheduled to begin at approximately 2:50 p.m. in order to reach the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre by the scheduled start time of 3 p.m. Employees participating in the processional will be guided to sit in a reserved section in the theatre and will show support of the university leadership. If you have any questions, feel contact Michael Ranscht at ext. 3739 or Chris Sanger at ext. 3070.
The Viterbo community is also invited to submit messages of best wishes or congratulations to President Temple on the inauguration website.
