Exhibit – The Investiture of President Mark P. Becker


Come witness history in the making at Georgia State University!

The Georgia State University Library is celebrating the Investiture of President Mark P. Becker with an exhibit on Library North’s first floor. The case behind our broadcast screen will display recognitions of the event from institutions around the nation. Our exhibit case next to Saxbys entrance will also display archival items from previous presidential investitures of both Presidents Palms and Patton. These items come from the University Archives in our Special Collections on the 8th floor of Library South. From Tuesday, October 20 until Friday, October 24, the library will display the actual ceremonial mace and medallion used in the presidential investiture for the entire campus to see.

Be a part of our second century and reflect upon the history and symbols of Georgia State’s previous Presidential Investitures.

This exhibit will run from October 12 until Friday October 24. President Becker’s Investiture ceremony occurs on Monday, October 19 at 2:00 pm in the Sports Arena. Please go to for further information.
