ACADEMIC SYMBOLS OF THE UNIVERSITY

Academic Symbols of the University Original University Seal The university’s original seal was developed in 1884 to emboss the diplomas of the school’s first ­graduating class. This seal depicted the year of USC’s founding (1880) emblazoned on a scroll next to a palm tree (in heraldry, a symbol of righteousness and victory), with the name of the institution inscribed around the border.

1908 Seal At the behest of university administrators in 1908, Jesse Ray Miller devised a new seal that introduced USC’s official flower, the California poppy, a heraldic symbol of remembrance, hope, joy and growth. The seal also included a shield bearing a setting sun and three torches. In heraldic tradition, the torch symbolizes learning, and the three torches displayed here represented learning in the arts, the ­sciences and philosophy. The setting sun signified the West and, according to heraldic symbolism, power and life. Finally, enfolding the shield was a scroll displaying the university’s new motto, “Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat.” Freely translated it means: “Let him bear the palm who merits it.”

Current Seal of the University of Southern California In 1948, the USC Board of Trustees approved an updated version of the university seal. In this version, the poppies appear next to the shield inside the outer band, which is now formatted as a scroll. The Latin motto is inscribed on a separate scroll at the base of the seal. This seal continues to be the imprimatur, or official signature, of USC to this day.

ACADEMIC SYMBOLS OF THE UNIVERSITY

Presidential Medallion of Office The medallion of office is worn by the president over his official regalia at ceremonial occasions. It was created by Associate Provost Jerome B. Walker for the inauguration of President James H. Zumberge on May 10, 1981 to serve as a tangible symbol of the authority vested in the president by the Board of Trustees. For his 1991 inauguration, President Steven B. Sample designed the medallion’s current chain, which consists of shields identical to that found in the university seal, linked together 16 times. The front of the medallion depicts the university seal in full, and the back lists the name of the current president and the date of his inauguration. Each president keeps his medallion after retirement. For his 2010 inauguration, Dr. C. L. Max Nikias directed that two copies of the medallion be created. One copy will be worn by the president at appropriate events, while the other will be displayed in the Office of the President. The displayed medallion will include the name of each of the past presidents of USC engraved on the links of its chain.

University Mace The mace of the University of Southern California is a ceremonial scepter symbolizing the authority of the Office of the President. The President of the Faculty has the honor of serving as mace bearer in all academic processions for commencements and other official university ceremonies. Historical maces date back to the 13th century when they were first carried as ceremonial symbols of the royal authority at events attended by English kings. The university mace was first used at the inauguration of President Norman Topping on October 28, 1958. The mace was designed and crafted by the renowned master silversmith, USC alumnus and professor emeritus Hudson Roysher. The head of the mace depicts the university seal. Encircling the head of the mace is the hand-engraved inscription, “1880 University of Southern California.” The names of the past 10 presidents and current president Dr. C. L. Max Nikias are engraved on the bowl. The crowning ornament is a depiction of the walled city of Troy. The mace is permanently displayed in the Office of the President. –Researched by Lynda A. Strand Marshals’ Batons Designed for the inauguration of Dr. C. L. Max Nikias as 11th president of the university, a baton is ­carried by every marshal in the official procession. The batons are carved from walnut, with the university seal mounted in gold at the top. The fluted shape of the baton evokes the torch of learning, which is also found on the university seal. At the University of Southern California, marshals are traditionally chosen from the ranks of the ­faculty to lead the student procession at New Student Convocation and Commencement. The University Marshal and the President of the Faculty march at the head of the procession.

Trustee Gowns The cardinal robes of office worn by university trustees were designed by Dr. Jerome B. Walker for President Steven B. Sample’s 1991 inauguration. Reminiscent of the university’s doctoral gowns, the trustee robes feature red velvet front panels and chevrons on the sleeves. Bright gold piping outlines both the panels and the chevrons. Each of the front panels features an embroidered shield on the lapel, taken from the university seal. The trustees wear a doctoral hood lined with USC’s traditional gold satin with a cardinal chevron. The hood has a red velvet collar representing the university, in place of a faculty color representing a single discipline. The University Marshal wears a special gown that serves as a bridge between the trustee robes and the university’s doctoral gown, with the university seal embroidered on the lapel.

ACADEMIC REGALIA

Academic Regalia

“(The) wearing of gowns by judges, ministers, teachers, and scholars is an ancient and impressive custom. . . . As the graduating students of American high schools, colleges, and universities march in academic procession on Commencement Day to receive their diplomas or degrees, they, too, (and perhaps, for some, only this once in their lives) wear the caps and gowns of this long tradition. . . . For a moment, they are wearing an ancient regalia, the proud badge of belonging to a great profession, that of student. Holding hands with students past and students present in a chain which goes back into history. Every detail should be keyed to stress the occasion as adventure, a turning point, something memorable and important.” Frank C. Baxter Professor Emeritus of English University of Southern California At the end of the 19th century, colleges and universities in the United States were developing the kind of ruleless academic costume that emerged from the centuries in Great Britain. There and in the dominions each university adopted its own costume without regard to what other institutions had done. The result was a confusing array of caps, gowns, and particularly hoods, each one of which must be separately memorized. Recognizing this problem, American institutions responded in 1895 by creating an Intercollegiate Commission to consider a uniform code for academic costume. The resulting Inter­collegiate Code regulated the design or pattern of gowns and hoods and the colors and materials to be used. The code was subsequently adopted by almost all of the colleges and universities in the country. It is still in use today, although slightly modified by successor committees appointed by the American Council on Education. Gowns The code provides for three types of gowns. Those for bachelors are made of black material and have long, pointed sleeves. They should be worn closed only, and should have no adornment. The master’s gown, also black, is made with an oblong sleeve, open at the wrist. The rear part of its oblong shape is square cut, and the front part has an arc cut away. It is also worn closed. The doctor’s gown is an elaborate costume marked by velvet panels down the front and around the neck as well as by three bars of the same material on the bell shaped sleeves. It is cut much fuller than the other gowns and unlike them may be ornamented in color. (As a matter of practice, except in the areas of philosophy and law, dark blue and purple, respectively, faculty colors are rarely seen on the gown.)

USC 129TH ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT

The standard cap and gown are almost universally worn, but there are some outstanding deviations, including Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, New York, Chicago and the University of Southern California. Cardinal and gold doctoral gowns were proposed for the university’s centennial by Dr. ­Jerome B. Walker, centennial director, in 1980. Cardinal gowns with ­yellow velvet panels were first worn during President James H. ­Zumberge’s inauguration in May 1981. For President Steven B. ­Sample’s 1991 inauguration, the design for doctoral gowns was modified, adding red velvet panels framed by bright gold braids. Caps Although there is an exception, rarely seen, for women which ­allows them to wear a soft cap, the mortarboard or Oxford type cap is worn. Only the doctor’s cap may be made of velvet. The ­tassel worn with the cap has three variations: (1) it may be black for any degree, (2) it may be in the color of the faculty (field of learning) in which the degree was granted, or (3) doctors and governing officials, only, may wear a tassel of gold metallic thread. Black ­tassels are worn at USC for all bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The cap is an essential part of the academic costume and is worn with it at all times except, of course, when the men remove theirs during prayer or during the playing of the national anthem. The gold tassel of the doctor’s cap is so fastened that it drapes over the left front quarter of the cap. From this design it has ­become customary to leave the tassel draped over the left temple at all times. Hoods Of all the components of the costume, the hood is the most symbolic. It makes clear the level of the degree, the faculty in which it was given, and the institution which awarded it. The level of the degree is shown by the size of the hood, the width of the velvet trimming, and, in the case of the doctors, by the shape. This same trimming identifies the faculty in which the degree is awarded. The hood is lined with the colors of the school awarding the degree; at USC, the lining is gold with a cardinal chevron. The academic regalia worn by the participants in the commencement ceremony is not merely costume. It represents an unbroken chain uniting students and scholars since the time of the Middle Ages. Prepared by Dr. G.A. Fleischer, Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering and University Marshal, 1983-87.

OFFICIAL COLORS FOR DEGREES

Official Colors for Degrees

The silk lining of the hood bears the color or colors of the institution from which the wearer has graduated. The official colors for the University of Southern California are cardinal and gold. The color of the velvet band around the hood shows the department in which the wearer has taken his or her degree. All Master of Arts (white) degrees and Master of Science (gold yellow) degrees are bestowed by the Graduate School.

HERALDIC FLAGS

Heraldic Flags

10

Designed by Dr. Jerome B. Walker for President James H. ­Zumberge’s 1981 inauguration, heraldic flags for each academic degree-granting unit are displayed at commencements and other academic convocations. These flags, carried by students, precede the faculty in the procession. By a long-standing tradition, most academic disciplines have used an identifying color, which is displayed on academic hoods in order to indicate the subject area in which the wearer obtained the degree. These identifying academic colors are used in the banners of the various schools and divisions of the university. Found in the university seal, the torch of learning is a clear and honorable symbol, well suited to an institution of higher l­earning, and is one of the charges on the university’s shield of arms, which is carved on a number of the buildings on the campus. The university seal also contains a sun. Known as a “sun in its splendor,” the perimeter of the sun carries alternating straight and wavy rays. The straight rays represent the light and the wavy rays the warmth and affection that the university extends to its students and community. Whenever possible, both the torch and the sun are used in flags to unite these disciplines under the flag of the University of Southern California. Occasionally the requirements of good banner

­ esign require the double use of one or the other of the two univerd sity symbols. Although technically the design and description of banners is a part of heraldry, in recent years there has been some departure from the traditional rules of heraldic design as applied to banners. For example, a number of colors used successfully on banners do not fall within the rather narrow range of colors permitted by traditional heraldic rules. Thus, although the color brown is used frequently and with considerable effect in the design of banners, brown is not a heraldic color. In describing banners in the most technical manner it would be customary to use the Old-French words for the colors or tinctures used, but it is deemed sensible, in describing modern b ­ anners using other than traditional colors, to use the simple English descrip­tions for colors. For those who are interested in traditional heraldic descriptions, the following substitutions may be made: for red write gules; for crimson write murrey; for blue write azure; for green write vert; for purple write purpure; for orange write tenny; for black write sable. The colors yellow and white are known in heraldic language as metals; they represent, respectively, gold and silver and they are technically described as or and argent.

College of Letters, Arts and Sciences Academic colors, white for letters and yellow for sciences. The wide-ranging fields over which this college functions are symbolized by the intimate intertwining of letters, arts and sciences in the heraldic pattern known as “gyronny.” The torch of learning serves as a reminder that the work of this college is focused on scholarship.

Architecture Academic color, blue-violet. The Doric portico is used here as a symbol of beauty and proportions inspired by the early Greek architects, who continue to inspire the architect today. The blue background, representing the sky, suggests the almost limitless scope of architecture.

The Graduate School Academic color, royal blue for the doctorate. The saltire (a corner-to-corner cross) symbolizes the very wide range of disciplines over which this school presides and which the saltire unites in one unit.

USC 129TH ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT

Business Academic color, taupe. The rectangular figures that are symmetrically arranged on this flag are designed to symbolize the organizational characteristic of business at all levels of complexity.

HERALDIC FLAGS

Cinematic Arts Academic colors, brown for the arts, white for letters. The eight triangles represent the strength of the individual disciplines, such as camera, editing, sound, graphics, writing, history, criticism and aesthetics, that form the larger discipline of cinematic arts. When combined, they form an iris, and in the center is the human eye, which represents the human mediation essential to the discipline.

Communication and Journalism Academic colors, crimson for communication, white for journalism. The three roundels, interconnected by arrows pointing in both directions, are here used to symbolize the fact that all communication has a threefold aspect — communicator, audience and medium — all of which are involved in the interplay and sharing of a message.

Dentistry Academic color, lilac. Dentistry, like the other scholarly areas associated with health care, uses the traditional Aesculapian staff and serpent, enclosed, in the case of dentistry, in a capital Greek letter, delta.

Education Academic color, light blue. The book, illuminated by the lamp of learning, is a very widely used, traditional symbol for education, and occurs in many shields of arms.

Engineering Academic color, orange. The inter-linked rings in this flag symbolize the way in which the profession of engineering interacts with and brings science and applied science to deal with problems in the world in which we live.

Fine Arts Academic color, brown. Here the symbols reflect two important branches of the creative arts, painting (and drawing) and sculpture.

Gerontology Academic color, gold. The very characteristic architecture of this school is incorporated in the flag, along with the oak tree, symbolizing sturdy and long-lasting life, with acorns representing the constant renewal of life.

Law Academic color, purple. The gavel, repeated four times in this flag, symbolizes the many aspects in which the legal profession provides a bulwark and framework of society at many levels: federal, state, county, and local.

HERALDIC FLAGS

12

Medicine Academic color, green. The staff of Aesculapius, the Roman god of medicine, around which is entwined the harmless snake beloved of Aesculapius, has been the symbol of medicine for many centuries.

Music Academic color, pink. The treble and bass clefs symbolize music expressed in all its forms and styles, vocal or instrumental. Music is a universal means of communication between human beings, linking the past, present and future.

Social Work Academic color, citron. As symbolized by the individual reaching out to the globe with outstretched arms, social work by its very nature is about embracing our connections as human beings and inspiring the spirit of compassion and mutual respect that assists individuals and communities in reaching their full potential.

Roméo A. Dallaire Doctor of Humane Letters

Roméo Dallaire is a Canadian senator and retired Canadian Army lieutenant-general. A devoted humanitarian, Dallaire is president of the Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire Foundation; founder of the Child Soldiers Initiative, a project aimed at eradicating the use of child soldiers; an out­ spoken advocate for human rights, particularly those of war-affected children, women, the Canadian First Nations and military veterans; a respected champion of genocide prevention initiatives, the Responsibility to Protect doctrine and nuclear non-proliferation; as well as a best-selling author. Throughout his distinguished military career, Dallaire served in staff, training and command positions throughout North America, Europe and Africa, rising in rank from army cadet in 1960 to ­lieutenant-general in 1998. Dallaire was appointed force commander of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Rwanda, prior to and during the 1994 genocide. In this capacity, he provided the United Nations with information about the planned massacre, yet permission to intervene was denied, and the United Nations withdrew its peacekeeping forces. Dallaire, along with a small contingent of Ghanaian soldiers and military observers, disobeyed the command to withdraw and remained in Rwanda to protect those who sought refuge with the United Nations’ forces. His courage and leadership during this mission earned him the Meritorious Service Cross, the United States Legion of Merit, the Aegis Award on Genocide Prevention and the affection and admiration of people around the globe. Dallaire describes his experiences in Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda, which won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Non-fiction in 2004. Dallaire’s most recent book is They Fight Like Soldiers, They Die Like Children: The Global Quest to Eradicate the Use of Child Soldiers. Dallaire was born in Denekamp, Holland, but raised and educated in Canada. He joined le Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean in 1964, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the Royal Military College in 1969. For his unwavering commitment to compassion, to probity and to humanity — which he amply evinced as force commander of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Rwanda, the University of Southern California is proud to honor Roméo Dallaire with the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters honoris causa.
