October 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Inauguration of Paul Alivisatos as the 14th president of the University of Chicago

Scheduled for 10:00am CT on October 29, 2021. The ceremony will take place on campus, at Rockefeller Chapel, and will be preceded by the traditional faculty and delegate processional. The Inauguration is a time-honored opportunity for representatives of the University community to welcome President Alivisatos to his new role, and for him to share insights into his vision for the future of our work together, supporting and advancing the University of Chicago.

Due to the continual shifts in health and safety guidance, it is likely that we will need to limit in-person attendance at Rockefeller Chapel, but the ceremony will be viewable via live stream.
