Geoffroy installation set for Oct. 6

Iowa State's 14th president, Gregory Geoffroy, officially will be installed in his new post during campus events Oct. 5-6.

Geoffroy, who this month is wrapping up four years as senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at the University of Maryland, arrives at Iowa State July 1.

The installation ceremony for Geoffroy begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, in Stephens Auditorium. Following welcomes from various Iowa State and state of Iowa representatives, Geoffroy will be introduced to the Iowa State community by Graham Spanier, president of The Pennsylvania State University and personal friend to Geoffroy. Spanier received bachelor's (1969) and master's (1971) degrees in sociology from Iowa State. Owen Newlin, president of the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, will install Geoffroy as ISU president.

Following the ceremony, a reception will be held from 11 a.m. to noon in the Scheman Building. Both the ceremony and reception are public events. The university community also is invited to meet Geoffroy during an informal ice cream social on central campus from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5.
