Go to http://www.sonoma.edu/investiture/pdf/online-mini-conference-program.pdf for the mini conference program

Dr Sakaki Investiture Ceremony | 2-4 PM | Weill Hall, Green Music Center

Defined as the "act of ceremony of conferring the authority and symbols of a high office," an investiture is an academic ceremony in which a new leader is "vested" with the official powers of office. Held during a president's first year in office, an investiture provides an opportunity to welcome a new chapter in a university's history and celebrate as a community. In short: "Inauguration" refers to events planned to celebrate a new president, "installation" is the actual moment the new president assumes office and an "investiture" is the ceremony itself.

Campus Reception for Dr Sakaki Investiture | 4-5 PM | Trione Plaza, Green Music Center

A Celebration of the Investiture of  Judy K. Sakaki featuring Hiroshima | 7:30 PM | Weill Hall, Green Music Center

Contemporary jazz masters Hiroshima will be performing as part of the Investiture of Dr. Judy K. Sakaki. "The group, led by Dan Kuramoto, continues to make their own East Meets West contemporary jazz. Departure, their 18th recording, is defined by its title. . . . Consistent quality, a distinct sound, and longevity = win. If I were creating a Contemporary Jazz Hall of Fame, Hiroshima would certainly be an early inductee." - ContemporaryJazz.com, John Hildebrand

Sexual assault is a pervasive and serious social problem, made more insidious by a shadow of shame that isolates survivors and creates obstacles to justice.  But there is a lit path out of the darkness: a new paradigm, based on Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, that provides tangible tools and techniques to guide survivors to healing, empowerment, and justice. In this interactive, engaging workshop, Lisa Foster, founder of parillume™, shows you how to lead survivors through their Hero’s Journeys from survivor to thriver, and how to transform the conversation about sexual violation from shame and silence to heroism and fierce hope.

Get Out To The Green With Leela Dance

  • Weill Hall, Green Music Center

Bringing together the world’s leading Kathak artists to charter new and unprecedented directions in Kathak dance, Leela Dance presents the exlusive premiere of their latest work Son of the Wind. This tour-de-force kathak dance drama brings to life the Ramayana's hidden hero. Hanuman, the son of the mighty wind god, through his mischievous ingenuity and indomitable vigor, proves to be an integral force in the rescue of the kidnapped princess Sita and the defeat of the arrogant King Ravan. Told through dramatic storytelling, powerful movement, and exquisite costume design and lighting, this production exposes the contemporary relevance of a timeless story while capturing the hearts of all. Tickets on sale at the Info and Tickets Desk at the Student Center or online at tickets.sonoma.edu   We have 25 free tickets and dessert for students who want to go!
