Join Us on the Rindge Campus

September 23, 2017 will mark a historic day for Franklin Pierce, as the University installs its sixth President Dr. Kim Mooney ’83—the first woman and first alumna to serve in this role—during Pierce Pride Weekend.

Together, we celebrate an exciting new era of evolution under President Mooney’s leadership. With collaboration, communication, and community as guiding principles for the University, President Mooney has infused the institution with a spirit of innovation and universal commitment to the mission that every student has the opportunity to discover their passion and greatest potential at Pierce.

The Installation Ceremony is invitation-only. If you have received an invitation, please register to the right. The Installation Celebration and Pierce Pride Weekend events are open to the Franklin Pierce community, including the alumni and families who the University will welcome back to campus, as well as current students, faculty and staff. Information regarding the schedule, accommodations, and the President can be found below.
