greeting
Fr. William Rewak, S.J., receives the mace as a symbol of office from Benjamin Swig, the chairman of the university's board of trustees on Jan. 12, 1977.

Key constituency groups, like student government, faculty, trustees, and regents, and neighboring universities, take this opportunity to extend greetings to the new president.

Universities or colleges that do not send delegates often send certificates of congratulations.

City or state officials also sometimes pass official resolutions of congratulations on the occasion of inaugurations.
