FALL 2020

ACADEMIC REGALIA Though our ceremonies look different this year, regalia traditions are beloved, timeless and span decades — and pandemics. Our graduates have earned the right to don regalia and adornments for the rest of their lives that reflect the dedication they have shown to their field and the love they have for their alma mater. The custom of recognizing the accomplishments of scholars through distinctive dress, color and ceremony began in the Middle Ages and has been adopted by various academic institutions throughout the world. American academic regalia developed from the English traditions that originated at the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford and has been in continuous use in this country since Colonial times. Institutions of higher learning in the United States have adopted a system for identifying different academic degrees by use of specific gowns, hoods and colors. The baccalaureate (bachelor’s) gown is identified by long pointed sleeves. The master’s gown has a very long sleeve, closed at the bottom, and the wearer’s arm is placed through an opening in the front of the sleeve. Master’s gowns also are distinguished by green panels down the front of the gown. Doctoral gowns are distinguished by velvet panels around the neck and down the front of the gown. Three horizontal velvet bars on each sleeve also may mark the doctorate. The colorful hoods worn by master’s and doctoral graduates represent the specific degree earned and the degree-granting institution. Hoods for UNT are distinguished by a kelly-green-and-white chevron lining. The outside edge of the hood is bordered in a band of velvet that signifies the degree received. Among the discipline colors are: • White: Arts, Letters and Humanities • Forest Green: Audiology • Light Brown/Drab: Business • Light Blue: Education • Brown: Fine Arts • Crimson/Red: Journalism

• Pink: Music • Dark Blue: Philosophy • Peacock Blue: Public Administration • Gold: Science • Citron: Social Work

The regalia variety worn by the deans represents each university’s own distinguishing customs. Though the president and his cabinet don UNT regalia for these ceremonies, faculty members’ regalia represent the institutions from which they graduated.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETIES College honor societies recognize academic excellence and promote scholarship, ethics and professionalism. Membership in an honor society bestows honor, recognition and a lifetime distinction. UNT has many interdisciplinary and departmental honor societies, each of which wears a distinctive ribbon, pin, stole, cord or pendant.

GLORY TO THE GREEN AND WHITE Music by: Julia Smith Lyrics by: Charles Langford Singing glory to the green, Singing glory to the white, For we know our university is striving for the right; Down the corridor of years, We’ll forget the joys and tears, But North Texas, North Texas, we love.

NOTE: Please stand, as you are able, during the Star-Spangled Banner and Glory to the Green and White.


Congratulations, Class of 2020! This is it — the moment you’ve been waiting for. After years of hard work, a little pain, unexpected curveballs, and a lot of joy, you’re graduating from college. More importantly, you’re becoming a UNT graduate and joining our global alumni network, which is 448,000 members strong and growing. You’ve earned much more than a degree. You’ve gained knowledge and insight that — combined with your creativity and perseverance — make you a powerful force for change. You’ve made friends and built relationships with mentors who will be part of your life forever. And you’ve become part of a university family that will always be there for you. There is nothing more transformational than a college education. It changes who you are and what you imagine to be possible. It also changes the people around you as they see what you accomplish. I experienced it in my own life as a first-generation college student who earned a Ph.D., and it still defines me today. Graduating from college is an incredible milestone, and it’s not just you who revels in the achievement. There are family, friends, mentors and peers who’ve helped you get where you are and who take incredible pride in what you’ve accomplished. We commend you for exhibiting resolution, flexibility and resolve in the face of uncertainty during your final year at UNT. When others gave up, you persevered to finish strong and complete your mission of earning a UNT degree. Life will continue to present challenges, but with your determined attitude and UNT education, we know you will continue to achieve great success. As UNT graduates, you have the power to go anywhere and do anything. With critical thinking skills, a caring spirit, the agility to adapt and a curiosity for lifelong learning, you are prepared for success in today’s fast-paced, evolving workforce. Your creativity, perseverance and UNT education have equipped you to soar high in everything you do. We are proud of your accomplishments and know your time at UNT was only the beginning. Remember that no matter how far you go or how much time passes, you’ll always be a part of our Mean Green Family — forever proud, forever united. UNT Proud,

Neal Smatresk President 11
