The investiture of Dr. Marcus Jones as Northwestern State University’s 20th president will take place with a formal ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 9 in A.A. Fredericks Auditorium and will be followed by a community reception in the Sylvan Friedman Student Union Ballroom.
Other events that will take place surrounding the investiture of Dr. Jones include a day of service and an outdoor event for students and a breakfast for faculty and staff.
Jones was named the university’s president last November. His investiture was postponed earlier this year to allow for more student participation.
