The inauguration ceremony for new University President Eric Kaler on September 22, 2011 was carried live on the U of M website and televised to all U of M campuses around the state.

For 15 minutes prior to the ceremony, SJMC students and alums helped to produce a 15-minute "pre-show" program, live from the Rarig Center studios.

The show featured live and taped segments. Boua Xiong, a KARE-11 Reporter and SJMC alum, anchored the program, which was produced by 2011 SJMC grad Jake Wallace. University historian Ann Pflaum joined Boua live in the studio for context and perspective on past inaugurations and traditions.

Current SJMC students Emily Brady, Breanna Fuss, Sarah Gray, Kevin Salo and Sophia Waldvogel shot, wrote and edited the video segments for the program.
