Dear City College Community,
Thank you for your tremendous support as we celebrated the investiture of our 13th President, Dr. Vince Boudreau.
The day was made even more important because of your participation - whether you were with us in the Great Hall, watched the video from places around the city and the world, or if you found ways to connect with us via social media, letters to the campus or calls over the past few days.
An investiture is a celebratory moment and we are thrilled you were a part of the evening.
We are pleased to share the video of the ceremony and photos from the night. Please do feel free to share them widely. As President Boudreau has reminded us: We are all ambassadors for City College - and everyone should know of the great work that is happening on campus - and through our global alumni network.
We look forward to seeing you on campus for our homecoming week (May 2 - May 11th), which includes our Presidential Gala on May 7th, 2018 >> Presidential Gala Tickets
We hope you will visit us during commencement week.
Wishing you the very best - and looking forward to continuing in our strong partnership.
Take a look at the Investiture ceremony below.
