President’s Ceremonial Stole<br />

Presented to President Elson S . Floyd during his<br />

first commencement ceremony at Washington State<br />

University in fall 2007, the ceremonial stole signifies the<br />

ethnic diversity the University seeks in all its endeavors<br />

and displays a dynamic visual presentation . Researched<br />

and designed by faculty member Linda Arthur Bradley<br />

with contributions from apparel, merchandising, design,<br />

and textiles students, the stole is made of textiles from<br />

locations including Ecuador, India, Scotland, and Japan .<br />

Many came from personal collections of Bradley or her<br />

colleagues, some were available commercially, and four<br />

were hand-woven by fiber artists specifically for the stole .<br />

Master Salish weaver Susan Pavel hand-spun and wove<br />

two pieces of traditional Indian design . Other custom<br />

pieces include a Hawaiian hand appliqué by Charlotte<br />

Hughes, an American coverlet sampler by Cynthia Hosek,<br />

and embroidered pieces representing the Nez Perce<br />

tradition by Ann MacCormack .<br />

President’s Chain of Office<br />

During commencement ceremonies and other special occasions, the<br />

president of Washington State University wears the President’s Chain<br />

of Office . The medallion features the WSU shield with Cougar head,<br />

and the links are engraved with the names and dates of service for<br />

each past WSU president, starting with George Lilley, who served<br />

from 1891 to 1892, and ending with V . Lane Rawlins, who served from<br />

2000 to 2007 . Blank links allow engraving of names and service years<br />

for future presidents .<br />

The Chain of Office was created at the request of V . Lane Rawlins, who<br />

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

during his inauguration on March 28, 2001 .<br />

COMMENCEMENT <strong>2012</strong><br />

Washington State University, on the occasion<br />

of its twelfth annual fall <strong>Commencement</strong>,<br />

cordially welcomes all those who have come to<br />

the <strong>Pullman</strong> campus to share in ceremonies<br />

honoring the graduating class of <strong>2012</strong> . To class<br />

members, the Class of <strong>2012</strong>, the University extends<br />

sincere congratulations .<br />

WSU enrolls 27,299 students statewide . This includes<br />

19,257 undergraduates and 3,624 graduate and<br />

professional students learning at the <strong>Pullman</strong> and<br />

Spokane campuses or through distance education .<br />

At the Tri-Cities and Vancouver campuses, 4,418<br />

undergraduate, graduate, and professional students<br />

are enrolled .<br />

<strong>Commencement</strong> is the special occasion that provides<br />

public recognition of students’ academic achievements<br />

. The transcript is the official document certifying<br />

the successful completion of specific academic<br />

requirements . The diploma is mailed after the<br />

ceremony .<br />

The first WSU <strong>Commencement</strong>, held June 24,<br />

1897, recognized eight students being advanced to<br />

degrees—three in engineering, one in biology, two in<br />

economics, and two in English . This followed a legislative<br />

act in 1895 empowering the college to grant<br />

Within academic areas on either side of the floor, the names<br />

of the degree recipients are called in random order as they<br />

approach the readers. Students will be viewed on big screens<br />

as their names are read.<br />

the fall <strong>2012</strong> commencement program includes degree<br />

candidates from august <strong>2012</strong> through december <strong>2012</strong>. those<br />

previously awarded degrees are noted with an asterisk. (*)<br />

the program is not a listing of those attending the ceremony.<br />

appearance of a name in this program is presumptive<br />

evidence of graduation and graduation honors, but it must<br />

not in any sense be regarded as conclusive. notation on<br />

the university transcript remains the official testimony of<br />

degree possession.<br />

14 2 012 fall commencement<br />

the usual academic and honorary degrees and issue<br />

diplomas . 1 With the construction of Bryan Hall in<br />

1909, <strong>Commencement</strong> moved to the well-equipped<br />

Bryan Auditorium . Enrollment and the number<br />

of degree candidates increased over the years, and<br />

<strong>Commencement</strong> moved to Bohler Gymnasium following<br />

its construction in 1928 . Following World<br />

War II and the burgeoning enrollment created by<br />

the return of students receiving veterans’ benefits<br />

(G .I . Bill), <strong>Commencement</strong> was moved outdoors to<br />

Rogers Field in the football stadium (1949-1973) .<br />

Because it was always possible that inclement<br />

weather would disrupt the ceremonies, it was necessary<br />

to duplicate arrangements in Bohler Gymnasium<br />

. However, only twice in those years—1954<br />

and 1963—was it necessary to move the outdoor<br />

ceremony indoors . In 1973, with the completion of<br />

Beasley Coliseum, <strong>Commencement</strong> moved indoors<br />

permanently .<br />

In 1986, the University’s <strong>Commencement</strong> Committee<br />

recommended decentralizing <strong>Commencement</strong><br />

to make the event more personal for graduating<br />

students . The WSU administration approved, and<br />

from 1986 through 1996, an All-University <strong>Commencement</strong><br />

Assembly was held in the coliseum,<br />

and individual college ceremonies took place in<br />

the coliseum, Bohler Gymnasium, Bryan Auditorium,<br />

Compton Union Building Ballroom, and<br />

Hollingbery Fieldhouse . Beginning with the 100th<br />

<strong>Commencement</strong> in May 1996, the college ceremony<br />

times were changed to allow some to precede the<br />

All-University Assembly . In 1998, due in part to<br />

construction in Bohler, the administration approved<br />

a <strong>Commencement</strong> Committee recommendation<br />

to hold two ceremonies . Starting in 2000, a three-<br />

ceremony format (two ceremonies in the morning<br />

and one in the afternoon) was instituted . There was<br />

a historic <strong>Commencement</strong> change during the 2001-<br />

2002 academic year . For the first time, WSU held two<br />

<strong>Commencement</strong>s, one during fall semester (December<br />

15, 2001) and the other during spring semester<br />

(May 11, 2002) .<br />

This is the University’s twelfth fall commencement<br />

since its founding in 1890 .<br />

THE UNIVERSITY MACE<br />

The University Mace, a traditional symbol of authority,<br />

will lead the processional today . The mace is<br />

carried by the chair of the Faculty Senate with an<br />

honor guard consisting of the presidents of the<br />

undergraduate and graduate and professional student<br />

associations . Robert Greenberg carries it today, accompanied<br />

by Kyle Erdman, president of the Associated<br />

Students of WSU, and Ericka Christensen, president<br />

of the Graduate and Professional Student Association<br />

of WSU .<br />

Created in 1985, the two-foot-long, nine-pound scepter<br />

is cast in silver and bronze and features a globe<br />

atop a laurel branch, wrapped in a silver ribbon and<br />

inscribed “Washington State University .” According<br />

to designer and craftsman Tim Doebler of WSU’s<br />

Department of Fine Arts, “the globe represents the<br />

universality of education and the quest for knowledge<br />

. Laurel crowns were presented to academicians<br />

by the ancient Greeks .”<br />

The anvil is a symbol of forging and molding education,<br />

rather than forcing it upon students .<br />

academic regalia<br />

ACADEMIC REGALIA<br />

Academic regalia arose through evolution and modification of the robes worn<br />

by medieval students, who were usually clerics in the cathedral schools and<br />

monasteries established by the church . As early as 1321, a medieval statute<br />

required that all doctors, licentiates, and bachelors wear academic gowns and<br />

hoods . Gowns were necessary for warmth in the unheated medieval buildings,<br />

and hoods may have been designed to cover tonsured heads . Today,<br />

immediately after receiving a charter, new institutions adopt a distinctive design<br />

for academic attire expressive of their individuality .<br />

On May 26, 1895, a group of institutional representatives met at Columbia<br />

University to establish a uniform code for academic regalia in this country .<br />

The approved academic attire for all graduates is composed of a cap and gown .<br />

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

is the gown, usually black in color, and similar in design for all degrees with the<br />

sleeves being the principal indicator of degree level . Gowns for those graduating<br />

with a bachelor’s degree have pointed sleeves; the sleeves on master’s gowns arc<br />

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

and master’s gowns are untrimmed while doctoral gowns feature distinctive<br />

velvet facing down the front and three velvet bars on each sleeve .<br />

The hood has become the colorful standard-bearer of academic symbolism .<br />

By examining the hood, an informed observer should be able to identify the<br />

degree level, the academic field of study in which the degree was earned, and<br />

the institution that conferred the degree . The hood is made of the same material<br />

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

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

at the sides . The color or colors of the hood lining indicate the institution that<br />

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

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

degrees . The border color represents the faculty or field of study in which the<br />

degree was awarded . At WSU, bachelor’s degree candidates do not wear hoods .<br />

The approved cap of the academic costume is the mortarboard or Oxford cap—a<br />

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

in front and back . The color is always that of the gown and uniformly black<br />

for the four-year degrees . The use of velvet has been reserved for the cap of the<br />

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

button in the center of the board .<br />

A distinctive commencement rental gown for students earning Ph .D . and Ed .D .<br />

degrees debuted in spring <strong>2012</strong> . The gown is crimson with gunmetal-gray velvet<br />

accents and a matching velvet tam . WSU is the only university with a custom<br />

rental gown . The purchased version of the custom gown is designed with a split<br />

hood, two silver WSU shield medallions holding the hood in place, two WSU<br />

medallion cufflinks on each sleeve, and other embellishments .<br />

18 2 012 fall commencement<br />

the committee of the american<br />

council on education on its “academic<br />

costume code” states the<br />
