What is an installation?

Principal Campbell's Installation

The installation of the Principal is a formal ceremony recognizing new leadership and direction, and the official act of the campus taking an historic step into its next chapter. 

During the ceremony, the new principal is formally endowed with the responsibilities of his appointment. The ceremony gives the Principal the opportunity to share a vision for the campus.

As is tradition, the ceremony takes place some time during the year after the official appointment is made. Faculty and staff are invited to participate as the installation acts not only as an opportunity for the Campus to look ahead to its future while honouring its traditions, but serves as an official recognition of the Principal as a member of University’s senior administrative and academic leadership.
