Presidential Installation

The installation of Gillian Siddall as the tenth President and Vice-Chancellor of Emily Carr University of Art + Design took place on February 15 in the Reliance Theatre.

We were pleased to celebrate this meaningful milestone with our extended Emily Carr community.

What is a Presidential Installation?

The Presidential Installation is a formal ceremony to recognize the responsibilities and authority of our president. This unique event marks a new chapter in Emily Carr’s history. It's an opportunity to celebrate how far we have come as a university, and to imagine what we can accomplish together as a community.

Gillian Siddall is the first new president of Emily Carr to be appointed since 1996, and this is the first Presidential Installation since Emily Carr became a university ten years ago. As such, it’s an exciting moment to reflect on our institution's remarkable path. A Presidential Installation recognizes our place among other excellent universities, as well as our unique strengths and values as an academic institution dedicated to art and design.
