Inauguration: A Campus Celebration

The inauguration ceremony for Endicott's seventh President, Steven R. DiSalvo, Ph.D., established Endicott College as an institution ready to lead the way into the future of higher education. Dr. DiSalvo's vision for Endicott detailed his position of continuing the College's mission of providing its undergraduate and graduate students with an academic experience rich with experiential learning through co-ops and internships, elevating the Endicott name into greater, global recognition, and laying the groundwork for our leadership in the conversation surrounding college affordability and accessibility.

There were a series of events throughout the week and on inauguration geared toward showcasing Endicott’s academic ventures, highlighting student life, a thriving alumni network, and our welcoming campus culture. 

Inauguration visitors had the opportunity to be a part of history during the inauguration celebration by writing well wishes to Dr. DiSalvo, putting a pin on the world map to show where they traveled from, adding a photo to our digital mosaic, or signing a beam going into Phase II of the Samuel C. Wax Academic Center.
