The piece and its underlying message prompted a wide campus discussion on the nature of sexual harassment and questionable behavior from the men on campus.

While this inauguration was the official start of President Vincent’s term, it is merely ceremonial for a President who has already served for almost a quarter of a year and shaken up several pieces of the administrative structure, notably the restructuring of the Office of the Provost.
