MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marquette University is inaugurating its 23rd president.
A ceremony will be held Friday morning for the Rev. Scott Pilarz and include a processional of more than 100 college and university presidents and delegates from across the nation.
The ceremony is a culmination of a weeklong series of events for the new president, including an inaugural Mass presided over by Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki.
Pilarz took over officially August 1 from the Rev. Robert Wild, who retired after 25 years.
Pilarz was previously the president of another Catholic Jesuit university, the University of Scranton.
