of the Ninth President of the
University of Pennsylvania
A Celebration to Remember
The inauguration of Liz Magill was held on Friday, Oct. 21. The day, which included an academic procession, inauguration ceremony, academic symposium, and a picnic and concert at Shoemaker Green for the Penn community, coincided with Homecoming weekend.
"The Penn presidency is one of the most complicated and demanding in higher education, and there are very few people anywhere in the world with the skills that this job demands, but through a thorough search process informed by input from all University constituencies, we found exactly the right person. Liz Magill is an extraordinarily accomplished academic leader. "- - Scott L. Bok, Chair of the University of Pennsylvania Board of Trustees
