It's a New Era, Join Us.

Presidential Inauguration and College Celebration
Friday & Saturday, September 29 & 30, 2017


D’Youville proudly invites alumni, faculty, students, and friends to join together as we welcome the 15th president of the College – President Lorrie Clemo, Ph.D. – at these historic inaugural events.

This inauguration is open to all friends of the College. We encourage you to join alumni traveling from near and far, city leaders, and passionate students as we celebrate our College’s legacy and plan for our future as we move continually forward alongside our great city and within our vibrant community.

We welcome you to tour the ever-evolving college campus, revisit the culture of the West Side, and witness the rebirth of our great city as we welcome President Clemo.

Please mark the last weekend of September to join the entire DYC community as we honor our history and celebrate our inspiring future.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
