President Towey’s Inauguration

Thursday, September 8, 2011


On October 7, 2011 H. James Towey will be inaugurated as the second president of Ave Maria University.

The Inaugural Liturgy will take place in the Ave Maria Oratory in Ave Maria, Florida at 10:00 AM.

The Investiture ceremony will begin at approximately 11:30 AM. H. James Towey's appointment as the new president of AMU was announced by the AMU Board of Trustees in February 2011.

His experience as president of St. Vincent College, Director of Faith-based and Community Initiatives for President George W. Bush, founder of the not-for-profit Aging with Dignity and attorney for Mother Teresa of Calcutta made him a superior choice for the post. The inauguration will maintain the reverence and modest environment typical of President Towey. The homilist for the Inaugural Liturgy will be Archbishop Wenski of Miami.
