About the WKU Investiture Ceremony

An Investiture ceremony is "a ceremony at which honors or rank are formally conferred on a particular person." WKU's Investiture ceremony will serve as a celebratory event intended to officially mark the beginning of Dr. Timothy C. Caboni's tenure as the 10th president of Western Kentucky University.

All members of the university community are invited to attend the Investiture Ceremony on April 27, 2018 to celebrate this historic event in WKU's history. 


Guest parking will be available in Parking Structures 1 and 2. Golf carts will be available to shuttle guests who require special assistance. View the Investiture parking map.


All guests are invited to attend the outdoor reception (weather permitting) that will immediately follow the ceremony. In case of rain, the reception will be moved indoors.
