Yesterday, St. George's University formally marked Dr. G. Richard Olds's appointment as President in an investiture ceremony, a highlight of the university's 40th anniversary celebration.
"I feel privileged to lead St. George's at a time when we are doing more than ever to address the shortage of doctors worldwide," Olds said. "Our graduates are fulfilling St. George's mission to shape the future of our world -- especially in communities worldwide that most need quality health care."
Investiture is a centuries-old academic tradition wherein a new university president receives the symbols of the office. Dr. Olds was appointed President of St. George's in August 2015.
