Columbia inaugurated Lee C. Bollinger as its 19th president on October 3 in a day-long celebration highlighting the University’s diversity and tradition of commitment to academic excellence. During the Investiture Ceremony on a sun-drenched Low Plaza, U.N. Secretary Kofi Annan praised Bollinger’s work on behalf of First Amendment rights; former Mayor David Dinkins, representing Congressman Charles Rangel, lauded Bollinger's commitment to diversity in the classroom; and Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared it Lee C. Bollinger Day in New York City. “Columbia is the quintessential great urban university,” Bollinger declared in a speech that reflected on the history, legacy and contributions of Columbia, its role in society and its responsibility to address the great issues of our time.
