We invite all to join us online as we formally install Dr. John S.K. Kauwe III as BYU–Hawaii’s eleventh president. Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, in-person seating in the Cannon Activities Center will be limited to invited guests only. The ceremony will begin promptly at 10:00 am, with classes suspended from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm so all may join virtually for this celebration.

*The inauguration ceremony will take the place of the regular weekly devotional. Campus offices will be closed during this time.

This is a ticketed event.
