Investiture of UO President Michael Gottfredson

The investiture of Michael Gottfredson as the UO’s 17th president took place May 30, 2013, in Matthew Knight Arena on the University of Oregon campus.

Investiture is a formal ceremony marking the installation of a new president at most universities and many other long-standing institutions. It marks the transfer of authority associated with a high office from one person to another.

Professors and others are typically encouraged to participate in investiture ceremonies by wearing full academic regalia.

Gottfredson began work at the UO last August, succeeding Bob Berdahl, who served in the role as an interim for about eight months. Berdahl was the university’s eighth interim president.
