President’s Ceremonial Stole

Presented to President Elson S. Floyd during his first commencement

ceremony at Washington State University in

fall 2007, the ceremonial stole signifies the ethnic diversity

the University seeks in all its endeavors and displays a

dynamic visual presentation. Researched and designed by

faculty member Linda Arthur Bradley with contributions

from apparel, merchandising, design, and textiles students,

the stole is made of textiles from locations including

Ecuador, India, Scotland, and Japan. Many came from

personal collections of Bradley or her colleagues, some

were available commercially, and four were hand-woven

by fiber artists specifically for the stole.

Master Salish weaver Susan Pavel hand-spun and wove

two pieces of traditional Indian design. Other custom

pieces include a Hawaiian hand appliqué by Charlotte

Hughes, an American coverlet sampler by Cynthia Hosek,

and embroidered pieces representing the Nez Perce tradition

by Ann MacCormack.

During commencement ceremonies and other special occasions, the

president of Washington State University wears the President’s Chain

of Office . The medallion features the WSU shield with Cougar head,

and the links are engraved with the names and dates of service for

each past WSU president, starting with George Lilley, who served

from 1891 to 1892, and ending with V . Lane Rawlins, who served from

2000 to 2007 . Blank links allow engraving of names and service years

for future presidents .

The Chain of Office was created at the request of V . Lane Rawlins, who

became president of WSU on June 8, 2000 . He wore it for the first time

during his inauguration on March 28, 2001 .

aCademIC ReGalIa

ACADEMIC REGALIA

Academic regalia arose through evolution and modification of the robes worn

by medieval students, who were usually clerics in the cathedral schools and

monasteries established by the church. As early as 1321, a medieval statute

required that all doctors, licentiates, and bachelors wear academic gowns and

hoods. Gowns were necessary for warmth in the unheated medieval buildings,

and hoods may have been designed to cover tonsured heads. Today,

immediately after receiving a charter, new institutions adopt a distinctive design

for academic attire expressive of their individuality.

On May 26, 1895, a group of institutional representatives met at Columbia

University to establish a uniform code for academic regalia in this country.

The approved academic attire for all graduates is composed of a cap and gown.

For master’s and doctoral graduates, a hood is included. The basic article of attire

is the gown, usually black in color, and similar in design for all degrees with the

sleeves being the principal indicator of degree level. Gowns for those graduating

with a bachelor’s degree have pointed sleeves; the sleeves on master’s gowns arc

away at the front; and doctoral gowns have round, bell-shaped sleeves. Bachelor’s

and master’s gowns are untrimmed while doctoral gowns feature distinctive

velvet facing down the front and three velvet bars on each sleeve.

The hood has become the colorful standard-bearer of academic symbolism.

By examining the hood, an informed observer should be able to identify the

degree level, the academic field of study in which the degree was earned, and

the institution that conferred the degree. The hood is made of the same material

as the gown. Hood length varies according to degree: bachelor’s—three feet,

master’s—three and a half feet, and doctor’s—four feet in length and has panels

at the sides. The color or colors of the hood lining indicate the institution that

conferred the degree (crimson and gray for WSU). The hood is trimmed or edged

in a border of velvet either two, three, or five inches in width for the respective

degrees. The border color represents the faculty or field of study in which the

degree was awarded. At WSU, bachelor’s degree candidates do not wear hoods.

The approved cap of the academic costume is the mortarboard or Oxford cap—a

stiff board nine inches square, placed on a soft cap and joined in a pointed design

in front and back. The color is always that of the gown and uniformly black for

the four-year degrees. The use of velvet has been reserved for the cap for the

doctor’s degree. A silk cord with a tassel made of many threads is attached to a

button in the center of the board.

WSU is debuting a distinctive commencement gown for students earning Ph.D.

and Ed.D. degrees. The gown is crimson with gunmetal-gray velvet accents and

a matching velvet tam. The rental is available this spring. Custom gowns with

additional embellishments will be available for purchase later this summer.

COMMENCEMENT 2012

Washington State University, on the occasion

of its 116th annual spring Commencement,

cordially welcomes all those who have come to

the Pullman campus to share in ceremonies

honoring the graduating class of 2012 . To class

members, the Class of 2012, the University extends

sincere congratulations .

WSU enrolls 27,008 students statewide . This includes

18,803 undergraduates and 3,542 graduate and

professional students learning at the Pullman and

Spokane campuses or through distance education .

At the Tri-Cities and Vancouver campuses, 4,663

undergraduate, graduate, and professional students

are enrolled .

Commencement is the special occasion that provides

public recognition of students’ academic achievements

. The transcript is the official document certifying

the successful completion of specific academic

requirements . The diploma is mailed after the

ceremony .

The first WSU Commencement, held June 24,

1897, recognized eight students being advanced to

degrees—three in engineering, one in biology, two in

economics, and two in English . This followed a legislative

act in 1895 empowering the college to grant

Within academic areas on either side of the floor, the names

of the degree recipients are called in random order as they

via video as their names are read.

appearance of a name in this program is presumptive

evidence of graduation and graduation honors, but it must

not in any sense be regarded as conclusive. notation on

the university transcript remains the official testimony of

degree possession.

names in this program include only those who have applied

to graduate in may. names are not necessarily representative

of those attending the spring commencement ceremony.

names for august and december graduates appear in the

the usual academic and honorary degrees and issue

diplomas . 1 With the construction of Bryan Hall in

1909, Commencement moved to the well-equipped

Bryan Auditorium . Enrollment and the number

of degree candidates increased over the years, and

Commencement moved to Bohler Gymnasium following

its construction in 1928 . Following World

War II and the burgeoning enrollment created by

the return of students receiving veterans’ benefits

(G .I . Bill), Commencement was moved outdoors to

Rogers Field in the football stadium (1949-1973) .

Because it was always possible that inclement

weather would disrupt the ceremonies, it was necessary

to duplicate arrangements in Bohler Gymnasium

. However, only twice in those years—1954

and 1963—was it necessary to move the outdoor

ceremony indoors . In 1973, with the completion of

Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum, Commencement

moved indoors permanently .

In 1986, the University’s Commencement Committee

recommended decentralizing Commencement

to make the event more personal for graduating

students . The WSU administration approved, and

from 1986 through 1996, an All-University Commencement

Assembly was held in the coliseum,

and individual college ceremonies took place in

the coliseum, Bohler Gymnasium, Bryan Auditorium,

Compton Union Building Ballroom, and

Hollingbery Fieldhouse . Beginning with the 100th

Commencement in May 1996, the college ceremony

times were changed to allow some to precede the

All-University Assembly . In 1998, due in part to

construction in Bohler, the administration approved

a Commencement Committee recommendation

to hold two ceremonies . Starting in 2000, a three-

ceremony format (two ceremonies in the morning

and one in the afternoon) was instituted . There was

a historic Commencement change during the 2001-

2002 academic year . For the first time, WSU held two

Commencements, one during fall semester (December

15, 2001) and the other during spring semester

(May 11, 2002) .

This is the University’s one hundred and sixteenth

spring ceremony . President Elson S . Floyd, WSU’s

tenth president, now presides over the ceremonies .

THE UNIVERSITY MACE

The University Mace, a traditional symbol of authority,

will lead the processional today . The mace is carried

by the chair of the Faculty Senate with an honor

guard consisting of the presidents of the undergraduate

and graduate and professional student associations

. Robert Greenberg (chair elect of the Faculty

Senate) carries it today, accompanied by Riley Myklebust,

president of the Associated Students of WSU,

and Ericka Christensen, president of the Graduate

and Professional Student Association of WSU .

Created in 1985, the two-foot-long, nine-pound scepter

is cast in silver and bronze and features a globe

atop a laurel branch, wrapped in a silver ribbon and

inscribed “Washington State University .” According

to designer and craftsman Tim Doebler of WSU’s

Department of Fine Arts, “the globe represents the

universality of education and the quest for knowledge

. Laurel crowns were presented to academicians

by the ancient Greeks .”

The anvil on top of the globe is a symbol of forging

and molding education, rather than forcing it upon

students .

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER

Christine Gregoire

Governor, Washington State

18 2 012 sPRInG CommenCement

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER, 8:00 A.M. CEREMONY

As Washington’s twenty-second governor, Chris Gregoire has been a tireless champion

for the people of the state . From proposing reforms to transform our education system

into the nation’s best, to major initiatives that streamlined government and made it

more efficient, Governor Gregoire has worked hard over two terms to make Washington

a great place to raise a family, work, and run a business .

Facing a $2 .2 billion shortfall in 2005 when she was sworn in, Governor Gregoire

balanced the state’s budget as she expanded health care coverage to low-income

children, created an Early Learning Department which will help ensure all kids are

prepared to learn when they enter kindergarten, expanded college and university

enrollments and the branch campus network, and launched a bold plan to save Puget

Sound . In 2007, she proposed, and the voters passed, a constitutionally protected

rainy day fund to prepare the state for economic downturns .

Governor Gregoire has asserted uncommon leadership through initiatives to keep

costs down and boost service to taxpayers . She authored a package of reforms that will

save $1 .1 billion over the next four years in the state’s workers’ compensation system .

She also sponsored a set of reforms to the unemployment insurance system that saved

businesses $300 million in the first year alone .

Governor Gregoire knew we had to look beyond the recession and prepare the state so

it would emerge stronger than ever . She proposed investments in the state’s aerospace

sector, including funding slots in public universities to educate more engineers so

Washington would remain competitive in this vital industry . She improved roads,

bridges and ferries which are needed to get workers to the job and products to market .

Her innovative Life Sciences Discovery Fund is helping turn cutting-edge research into

jobs for the future .

Recognizing healthy families are the backbone of our communities, Governor

Gregoire worked to improve the affordability and quality of health care . Her reforms

included the use of evidence-based medicine which ensures patients receive health

care that works, and expansion of chronic care management to better serve the 5

percent of patients who use 50 percent of health care resources .

Governor Gregoire also has worked for a healthier environment . She brought together

environmentalists, local government, sportsmen and women, and tribal and business

leaders to restore and preserve the health of Puget Sound . The Puget Sound Partnership

is actively implementing an action agenda to protect and restore the Sound by

2020 . Her work also has helped the state reduce global warming emissions, lower its

dependence on foreign oil, and increase energy production from renewable sources

such as wind power .

Chris O’Grady was raised in Auburn, Washington, by her mother, who worked as a

short-order cook to support the family . After graduating from Auburn High School,

Chris entered the University of Washington, where she earned a teaching certificate

and Bachelor of Arts degree in speech and sociology . She met her husband, Mike, in

September 1971 when they both worked for the Washington Department of Social

and Health Services . Chris received her law degree in 1977 from Gonzaga University .

Chris and Mike have two daughters, Courtney and Michelle . Courtney is married to

Scott Lindsay, and is an attorney . Michelle is attending law school .


Candidates for advanced

and Professional degrees

Names in this program include only those who have applied for a May 2012 graduation date .

The WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) Medical Education Program is offered in partnership with

the University of Washington School of Medicine and host universities throughout the five-state regional system. Students from

Washington complete their first year of medical training at the University of Washington, WSU Pullman, or WSU Spokane and

complete the remainder of their medical training in Seattle, Spokane, eastern Washington, or training sites throughout the WWAMI

region. The WSU Pullman WWAMI program is offered jointly with the University of Idaho WWAMI program and offers first-year

medical students the opportunity to train with the combined biomedical faculties and the teaching, research, and training facilities

on both campuses. WSU WWAMI students also complete their first clinical training rotations with local physicians, clinics, and

hospitals in Pullman and Moscow.
