THE ACADEMIC PROCESSION Ceremonies at American colleges and universities go back to ceremonies at the universities of medieval Europe, which were closely linked with religious orders. Most teachers were members of the clergy; many students expected to take holy orders. Academic costumes are derived from clerical dress. They also reflect rank: as ordinary clergymen wear less elaborate costumes than bishops, so undergraduates wear less elaborate costumes than professors. Then academic costumes, worn every day, were functional: hoods, for example, protected the head from cold and from inclement weather and dropped back onto the shoulders when not needed. Now hoods are ceremonial. American academic costumes can be “read” for information. Bachelor’s gowns are simple, with modestly gathered sleeves that extend to the wrist. Master’s gowns have long kimona-like sleeves. Doctors’ gowns have full gathered sleeves with velvet bands. Bachelor’s hoods are small, master’s hoods are somewhat larger, and doctors’ hoods are knee-length. Today, instead of receiving hoods at commencement, undergraduates shift the tassels on their mortarboards from right to left when their degrees are conferred. Most hoods have velvet borders whose color designates the academic fields of the wearers, as follows: white . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .arts and letters drab . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .business administration copper . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .economics orange . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .engineering brown . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .fine arts purple . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .law lemon . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .library science green . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .medicine pink . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .music light blue . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .pedagogy blue . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .philosophy (and other liberal arts) sage green . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .physical education gold . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .science scarlet . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .theology Colored velvet also trims the front edges of doctors’ gowns. Hoods are lined with the colors of the schools that grant the wearers’ degrees, sometimes a single color, sometimes two, one a field color and the other a chevron-shaped stripe.The colors of the College of Staten Island are maroon and royal blue; its master’s hoods have maroon as the field color, royal blue as the chevron color. In recent years universities have adopted colored doctoral gowns to take the place of black gowns. Ordinarily these gowns use the field color of the institutions’ doctoral hoods: Columbia and Yale University gowns are a pale blue and a medium blue, for example, Harvard and Rutgers University gowns are crimson, New York University gowns are violet, Princeton University gowns are orange, and The City University of New York gowns are dark blue. Academic processions, like religious processions, are organized hierarchically. Bachelor’s degree candidates come first, then master’s degree candidates, then faculty, then administrators, trustees, and honorary degree candidates. The president, who comes last, is preceded by a mace bearer. This order is reversed in recessionals.

The College of Staten Island’s mace, dedicated in 1986 to mark the tenth anniversary of the College, was made by a Finnish-American silversmith, Veikko Huotari. The College’s seal is at the top above four ornaments: the seals of Staten Island Community College and Richmond College (its predecessor institutions), the symbol of the borough of Staten Island, and dolphins, the College’s mascot. The College’s motto, “Opportunity and Challenge,” encircles the neck of the mace’s shaft.
