Commencement Speaker The Honorable Mark r. warner United States Senate

M

ark Warner was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2008, and serves on the Senate Banking, Budget, Commerce and Intelligence committees. After more than four years in the Senate, Senator Warner has established himself as a national leader in efforts to find bipartisan consensus to create balanced solutions to reduce the federal debt and deficit. He also has been a champion for military men and women, their families, and military veterans. Senator Warner also is a leader in Congress in efforts to promote private-sector innovation and to help our nation's small businesses and start-up companies succeed.

• Senator Warner has been a leader in seeking moderate, bipartisan compromises to try and break through Congressional gridlock. He organized the Senate's Gang of Six, which has worked since 2011 to find a bipartisan path towards responsible deficit and debt reduction, and he has reached across the aisle to co-sponsor numerous bills with Republican colleagues. • Senator Warner’s business experience has informed his work towards leaner, more efficient government. He was chosen by his colleagues on the Budget Committee to lead a bipartisan task force to eliminate unnecessary program overlap and wasteful duplication within the federal bureaucracy, and he has introduced bills to measure and eliminate waste in federal agencies. • As the senior senator from Virginia, a state with a proud history of military service and a large population of service members, their families, and veterans, Senator Warner has been a strong advocate for the men and women of our armed forces. He has intervened to improve older, dilapidated military housing in Hampton Roads and to combat the use of toxic drywall in military and civilian housing. His efforts also prompted the Veterans Administration to significantly improve its services to female military veterans. • Senator Warner has acted swiftly and decisively to resolve issues in the Commonwealth that demanded his immediate attention. After two Virginia Air National Guard pilots blew-the-whistle on chronic safety concerns with the new F-22 stealth fighter jet, Senator Warner intervened to protect the pilots from reprisals and prompted the Air Force to step-up its investigation into the cause of the F-22 safety issues. He also mobilized several of Virginia’s leading technology companies to correct mistakes and mismanagement discovered at the Army’s Arlington National Cemetery. From 2002 to 2006, Senator Warner served as Governor of Virginia, where he worked in a bipartisan way to turn record budget deficits into a surplus. Governor Warner also focused on improving public education and expanding economic opportunity in every region of the state. He recruited 135,000 new jobs to Virginia during his four-year term. When Governor Warner left office in 2006, Virginia was consistently recognized as the nation’s “best-managed state,” the “best state for business” and the state offering the best educational opportunities to its young people. Before entering public office, Senator Warner was an early investor in the cellular telephone business. He co-founded the company that became Nextel, and ultimately made early investments in hundreds of start-up technology companies that have created tens-of-thousands of private sector jobs. Senator Warner, his wife Lisa Collis, and their three daughters live in Alexandria, Virginia.

The Academic Costume

he custom of wearing academic dress stems from the Middle Ages, when scholars were also clerics and wore the costume of their monastic order. The hood was originally a cowl attached to the gown, which could be slipped over the head for warmth. The cap was originally round, but has changed to the varieties that we see

today. The gown varies for the respective degrees. The Bachelor’s gown is worn closed and can be distinguished by its long, pointed sleeves. The Master’s gown is designed to be open with the arms worn through the slits in the elbows of the sleeves. The Doctor’s gown also worn open, has full, bell-shaped sleeves with three horizontal bars stitched across the upper arm. There is a velvet panel draped around the neck and stitched down the front edges. This velvet trimming may be either black or the same color as the velvet border of the hood. The hood also varies for the respective degrees. The Bachelor’s and Master’s hoods are of the same design, pointed at the base. The Bachelor’s hood is three feet long; the Master’s hood is three and one half feet long. The Doctor’s hood is four feet long, of fuller shape and rounded at the base. The hood is bordered with velvet, the color of which indicates the field of study in which the degree was earned. The colors listed below will be worn by graduates of the various disciplines at Norfolk State University:

The Academic Degree

T

he first known degree was a doctorate conferred by the University of Bologna in the middle of the 12th century. Originally, the doctor’s and master’s degrees were used interchangeably, each indicating that the holder was qualified to give instruction to students. The bachelor’s or baccalaureate degree indicated only entrance upon course of study preparatory to the doctorate or mastership. Gradually, however, the bachelor’s degree came to mean successful completion of one level of study preparatory to the higher degrees. The use of academic degrees later spread to English universities. Harvard University, The College of William and Mary, and Yale University followed the British pattern in the New World. Today, there are more than 1,600 different academic degrees currently conferred by American colleges and universities.

The Bachelor’s Degree* The bachelor’s degree represents completion of a four-year course of study of collegiate grade and is the oldest academic degree used by American institutions of higher learning. The degree of Bachelor of Arts was the first conferred in America in 1642 on nine young men comprising the first graduating class of Harvard College. Yale conferred its first Bachelor of Arts in 1702; Princeton in 1748; William and Mary in 1753; Pennsylvania in 1757; Columbia in 1758; and Norfolk State University in 1958.

The Master’s Degree The master’s degree is an academic honor conferred upon students who have successfully completed one or two years’ work beyond the baccalaureate. A thesis and an oral examination are usually required. The word “magister” connected with a qualifying phrase was used among the Romans as a title of honor; but its present meaning must be traced to the time of the establishment of the oldest universities. Regularly organized faculties were not then known as they now exist in the universities. The whole circle of academic activity was limited to seven liberal arts, and those who received honors in the completion of their course of studies, for their diligence and knowledge, and who had already received the degree of baccalaureus (bachelor), were called magistri atrium (masters of the liberal arts).

The Doctor’s Degree** The doctor’s degree represents the most advanced degree conferred by American institutions of higher education. The Oxford English Dictionary defines a doctor in the academic sense as “one who, in any faculty or branch of learning, has attained the highest degree conferred by a university.” There are two major types of doctoral degrees: earned and honorary doctorates. Earned doctorates are further divided into two distinct types–the research degree and the professional or practitioner degree. The distinguishing feature of the research degree is that it normally requires a lengthy scholarly dissertation which is usually designed to constitute a substantial contribution to the existing body of knowledge in its field. The most important doctorate of the research type in American institutions of higher education is the Doctor of Philosophy. The only other earned doctorate of the research type which has secured wide recognition and use by a large number of leading American universities is the Doctor of Education. The honorary doctorate degree is awarded by colleges and universities in recognition of scholarly or creative attainments or distinguished public service. Since 1860 most honorary degrees have taken the form of doctorates. Presidents, governors and leaders of the judiciary are often honored as well as educators, clergymen, authors, artists and leaders in mass communication. The most commonly awarded honorary doctorates are: Doctor of Laws (LL.D.), first conferred in 1773; Doctor of Letters (Litt.D.), first awarded in 1892; Doctor of Science (Sc.D.), first conferred in 1884; and Doctor of Humane Letters (L.H.D.), first awarded in the 1880s. *Sometimes designated as the baccalaureate degree, from the Latin terms baccalaris “under the influence of” and laurus “Laurel” used as a designation of honor, distinction or fame. **Eells, Walter Crosby: Degree in Higher Education. New York. The Center for Applied Research in Education, Inc., 1967.

A Brief History of Norfolk State University

N

orfolk State University was founded in 1935. The College, brought to life in the midst of the Great Depression, provided a setting in which the youth of the region could give expression to their hopes and aspirations. At its founding, it was named the Norfolk Unit of Virginia Union University. In 1942, the College became the independent Norfolk Polytechnic College, and two years later an Act of the Virginia Legislature mandated that it become a part of Virginia State College. The College was able to pursue an expanded mission with even greater emphasis in 1956 when another Act of the Legislature enabled the institution to offer its first baccalaureate degree. The College separated from Virginia State College and became fully independent in 1969. Subsequent legislative acts designated the institution as a University in 1979 and authorized the granting of graduate degrees. Today, the University is proud to be one of the largest predominantly black institutions in the nation. Furthermore, it is committed to pursing its vital role of serving the people of the Hampton Roads area, the state, and the nation.

First Administration and Classroom Building G.W.C. Brown Hall (Formerly Tidewater Hall)

The Mace

The mace which symbolizes academic authority is borne by the Head Marshal. A crown of sterling silver rests upon the head of the mace symbolizing the emergence as an independent fouryear-degree-granting institution on February 1, 1969. There are five sterling bands placed horizontally around the solid rosewood mace. All but the first are inscribed with one of the previous names of the University. The first band is inscribed with the current name. These bands symbolize the five developmental periods of the University’s existence.

Oath of Induction Norfolk State university Alumni Association In the presence of these worthy sons and daughters of Norfolk State University, as a member of the graduating class, I hereby pledge my love and loyalty to the University. I promise to take my stand with other alumni and to do my part in helping to perpetuate those ideals for which the University stands; to engage actively in support of its programs; to work diligently toward the improvement of whatever community of which I am a part; and to make my life count for much in the service of humanity. This I will endeavor to do, God being my helper.

Alma Mater Words and Music by Dr. Carl W. Haywood ’71 By Virginia’s golden shore, There’s a place that we adore Where Norfolk’s sun shines bright Down on our campus site. The walls of Brown Hall Will always give a call To all striving to succeed, Forging onward, bound to lead. Though the years we spend are few, You will teach us what to do. In splendor we’ll relive The glorious time you give. We’ll wave the green and gold To praise thee a thousand-fold. A guiding light to us you’ve been Unwav’ring to the end. CHOruS Oh, Norfolk State, we love you. Oh, Norfolk State, we’ll always be true. And when we leave we’ll shed a tear, For to us you’ve been so dear. And leaving shed a joyful tear For our Alma Mater dear.
