Inauguration of L. Rafael Reif, MIT's 17th President

October 3, 2012

On Friday, September 21, 2012, the MIT community celebrated the inauguration of L. Rafael Reif as MIT's 17th president. You can watch the inaugural address or read about it and view photos. We decided on a hashtag that reflected the theme: #oneMIT. This hashtag was featured on the inauguration website as well as on the printed programs. We encouraged the use of social media platforms including live tweeting for the symposia and inauguration, Instagram for photos, and Facebook for longer comments. Many departments and individuals participated in creating buzz around the event and sharing insights using the hashtag.
