Dr. Robert R. Davila officially installed as Gallaudet’s ninth president
A key moment in Gallaudet’s history took place May 9 when Dr. Robert R. Davila was installed as the University’s ninth president. The moving ceremony in the University’s Field House demonstrated the campus community’s confidence in Davila’s leadership abilities and its readiness to work with him in helping Gallaudet achieve a bright future.
The event to formally commemorate Davila’s role as president took place in a celebratory atmosphere, brimming with goodwill as constituents from every part of the University community—alumni, boards of associates and trustees, faculty, staff, teachers, students, and even a representative of tomorrow’s generation of deaf leaders, Kendall School fourth grader Bridgett Berrigan—all came forward to give the new president their heartfelt congratulations and pledge their solidarity to stand with him in his pledge to move Gallaudet forward.
