Investiture Excerpts: James D. Spaniolo, President
From his speech, Leadership Through Collaboration

President Spaniolo “I want you to share my joy in participating in this majestic ceremony, one that has not been held on this campus since Jack Woolf became president of Arlington State College 44 years ago in February 1960. I’m pleased that Dr. Woolf as well as Dr. Nedderman and Dr. Sorber could participate in this investiture today. Your presence reminds us that this university has a proud history. I pledge my best efforts to serve with diligence and collaboration in building on the foundation you helped create. We are here not only to celebrate a new chapter in the life of a great university but, more importantly, to recognize academic excellence and research in the accomplishments of our students and faculty. The success of any university president cannot be separated from the excellence and accomplishments of the university’s students, faculty and staff. Knowledge is the product universities provide, but our students and graduates are our prize.”
