BYU-Idaho prepares for the inauguration of President Henry J. Eyring, the 17th president of the University, which will be held on Sept. 19, at 2 p.m.

According to BYU-I, classes should be done by 1:20 p.m., so students will have enough time to attend the event. The teachers who hold classes that start at 3:15 p.m. were instructed to be flexible with the start time during that Tuesday.

The I-Center will open its doors at 12:45 p.m. for faculty and staff, and at 1 p.m. for the general public. Reserved seats will be released at 1:40 p.m.

BYU-I informed that President Eyring and his wife Kelly Eyring will be the speakers for the week previous to the inauguration in the opening devotional for the Fall 2017 Semester on September 12.

Elder Dallin H. Oaks, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, called President Henry J. Eyring as the 17th president for BYU-I on February 7 during a devotional speech.

According to his bio, President Eyring has been working in BYU-I since 2006. He served as an associate academic vice president for online learning, an advancement vice president and an academic vice president.
