The University Quadrangle has borne witness to much history and has possessed the echoes of many important words during its long history. It has played host to sitting presidents - Ronald Reagan - and presidents-to-be - Barack Obama. Each May, it serves as the culminating University of Nevada, Reno moment for undergraduate and graduate students during Commencement.
On Friday, Sept. 28, the Quad will again provide the perfect backdrop, this time for a beginning: The inauguration ceremony of Marc Johnson as the institution's 16th president.
The ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. on the Quad, and will include an inaugural reception in the Joe Crowley Student Union.
The Nevada System of Higher Education's Board of Regents appointed Johnson to serve as the 16th president of the University of Nevada, Reno on April 20. Johnson previously served as interim president, executive vice president and provost at the University since 2008.
