Even on the go, President Julio Frenk finds time to stop and chat with UM’s No. 1 resource—students.

Since its founding in 1925, there have been five presidents at the University of Miami before Julio Frenk who have guided the University's extraordinary growth and progress over the years to become one of the nation's top research universities.

The inauguration of the President is steeped in rich traditions, with many symbols and elements that are representative of the President and the University. The celebratory event on Friday, January 29, 2016 at the BankUnited Center will include processions, salutations, the formal installation, and musical interludes.
