Salovey_Peter_01In the midst of midterms, Yale is preparing for one of its biggest parties in recent memory.

University President Peter Salovey will be officially inaugurated this weekend, marking the completion of Yale’s first leadership transition in two decades. Although he has occupied his office in Woodbridge Hall since July 1, Salovey will not formally hold the presidency until he is instated by Yale Corporation senior fellow Margaret Marshall LAW ’76. The ceremony will come at the end of a week-long series of festivities including events such as open houses, concerts and Inaugural Balls, most of which are open to the entire Yale community and to residents of New Haven.
