University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto, who came to Lexington almost four months ago, will be formally installed in his position on Tuesday.
The investiture ceremony will be take place at 4 p.m. at the Singletary Center for the Arts. Capilouto is expected to outline his broad goals for the university at the hour-long event, which is open to the UK community and the public at large.
"The president views this occasion as a important moment to reflect on the rich history of UK and the lasting legacy of those who came before us," spokesman Jay Blanton said about the ceremony. "Against that backdrop, he also sees it as an opportunity to point toward the future and discuss the path necessary to help the university realize its promise for the commonwealth we serve."
Capilouto is UK's 12th president.
