The Investiture is a ceremonial tradition that officially marks the beginning of a
new presidency. The Investiture typically takes place during a president's first
year in office.
The Investiture Ceremony and surrounding activities will provide an opportunity to
celebrate the first year of President Caboni's tenure as the 10th president of Western
Kentucky University, and a progression of the university toward its new vision that
supports new strategic goals and action plans.
Timothy C. Caboni, a 1994 Western Kentucky University graduate, returned to the Hill on
July 1, 2017, as WKU’s 10th president.
During his inaugural year as president, Caboni is leading a comprehensive strategic
planning process to serve as a roadmap for WKU’s next decade of growth. Of particular
importance will be renewing WKU’s mission of advancing the City of Bowling Green,
the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the world by inspiring innovation, elevating communities
and transforming lives.
