Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives



Please save the date—Tuesday, March 25, 2014—for the inauguration of Dr. Edward B. Burger, Southwestern University’s 15th President.

The installation ceremony will take place at 4:00 p.m., followed by a festive gathering on the Roy H. Cullen Academic Mall. At 7:30 p.m., the celebration will culminate with the 15th annual Roy and Margaret Shilling Lecture, featuring Scott Simon, novelist and host of National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition and Need to Know on PBS.

Additional events will take place Monday and Wednesday of that week. A formal invitation will follow with the full inaugural schedule, a link to the inaugural website, and an opportunity to RSVP.

We hope you will join the Southwestern University community as we gather together for this historic occasion in the life of Texas’ first institution of higher learning.
