CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The University of Cincinnati is celebrating the investiture of its 28th president, Dr. Santa J. Ono, on Friday.

A ceremony was held Friday morning at the Corbett Auditorium in the College Conservatory of Music. A luncheon followed at Great Hall, Tangeman University Center.

Traditionally, in higher education, a university or college president is "invested," or formally installed, during the first 12-18 months of service. The investiture ceremony gives the university community an opportunity to recognize and celebrate its new chief executive.

President Ono's ceremony featured an academic procession with delegates representing other colleges and universities, members of UC faculty, as well as UC deans, the President's Cabinet and the university Board of Trustees. Marchers wore the colorful academic regalia of their own institutions.

Interspersed with musical selections, there were greetings from UC's Board of Trustees, the Ohio Board of Regents, other university presidents, UC's academic community and students.
