The investiture of Dr. Lily D. McNair as president of Tuskegee University will be the highlight of inauguration weekend events in Tuskegee and Montgomery on March 15-16, 2019.

Because Dr. McNair is the university's first female president, and only its eighth since its founding in 1881, her inauguration and the events surrounding it will mark a historic milestone. Please plan to celebrate this significant event in the life of Tuskegee University by joining us for the following. As the details regarding these events are finalized, they and additional inaugural information will be shared on this webpage.
