PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island College will soon hold the inauguration ceremony for its president.

The inauguration festivities for Frank D. Sánchez kick off on Sunday with an alumni brunch and a family day on campus.

Sánchez will be sworn in as the college’s 10th president on Friday at the campus. The ceremony includes a procession of distinguished guests, faculty and staff, formal remarks and a reception.

Sánchez oversees a public college with an annual operating budget of more than $190 million, which supports about 12,000 students.

Among the activities leading up to the inauguration, the college will launch a commission to bring together experts in diversity, inclusion and equity to offer advice on building a more inclusive campus culture.

Sánchez has also established a fund to support first-generation college students.
