All faculty, students and staff are invited and encouraged to attend.
So that it is possible for any in the community who wish to attend to do so, ALL scheduled classes will be cancelled for this time period only, Thursday, October 5, 4:30-6:30 pm. This applies to all undergraduate, graduate, and professional courses scheduled during the time of the inauguration ceremony.
Classes that are underway should plan to end by 4:30pm, and evening classes should plan to begin after 6:30pm. Previously scheduled events or athletic practices/games may be held at the discretion of those units leading them. For classes with atypical schedules or other pressing reasons to meet during this time period, deans may request an exemption to the cancellation through the office of the provost. (As per Sally Kornbluth, Provost and Jo Rae Wright University Professor.)
