Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover will be formally sworn in as president during the 9 a.m. investiture program in the Howard C. Gentry Complex on Friday, October 25, 2013. Local and state political leaders, as well as delegates representing other academic institutions, will join Tennessee State University officials and representatives in the procession. The university is very appreciative to all delegates who will serve as designated representatives of their institutions and organizations at the Inauguration of Dr. Glover.
This academic ceremony is medieval in origin, when students and faculty wore the robes of the clergy. Academic attire began to appear on United States campuses in the late 1890s. Since that time, its use has become customary primarily for university functions. This event is open to the public. Doors will open at 7 a.m.
