Commencement Speaker

When the Miami Heat won the NBA Championship in 2012, the team and the city faced a logistical nightmare. They had just three days to organize a Monday parade for 350,000 fans through the heart of downtown Miami, as well as a separate celebration inside what was then the American Airlines Arena. The event required intricate coordination between the Florida Department of Transportation, the U.S. Coast Guard, local police and fire rescue, and numerous city and county agencies.

But the decision on who could lead such a mammoth endeavor was easy: Kim Stone. At the time, the North Carolina transplant had risen through the ranks of the Heat organization and was serving as executive vice president and general manager of the arena. Although she had never organized such an event before, she was quickly named parade director and oversaw every detail of the sun-soaked celebration.

And it went off without a hitch—a testament to a mantra that has guided Stone throughout her life: “Being uncomfortable is where you grow.”

Stone quickly evolved into a highly sought global leader in sports business and arena management. After two decades with the Heat, she was lured to San Francisco in 2019 to become the first general manager of the $1.6 billion Chase Center, the new home of the Golden State Warriors. In 2022 she moved to New York to become president of UBS Arena, home of the New York Islanders. And in 2024 she moved to Washington, D.C., to become the first chief executive officer of its professional women’s soccer team, the Washington Spirit.

While the cities and jobs in Stone’s life changed, her ability to thrive when facing challenges remained constant. At her high school in Hendersonville, North Carolina, Stone played volleyball and basketball, and walked on to the University of North Carolina Wilmington’s basketball team with hopes of a playing career. But when a knee injury derailed that dream, she transferred to UNC’s main campus in Chapel Hill, switching her major to journalism and, after earning her bachelor’s degree, landing a job in the sports information department at the University of Miami.

Stone was soon hired by the Heat’s media relations department and, eager to understand the business of sports, she enrolled at the University, earning her M.B.A. in 2003. Combining the skills she learned in Coral Gables with her natural leadership abilities, she quickly moved up the ranks of the Heat organization. She was tapped to lead its short-lived women’s basketball team, the Miami Sol, and was named the organization’s chief of staff. She then became general

manager of the arena, where she was responsible for everything from the fan experience to guest services to food and beverage and much more. Under her watch, the arena won the NBA award for the best fan experience and hosted four straight NBA Finals series and two championship celebrations—and became the world’s first sports and entertainment facility to earn LEED Gold certification. Her talents soon caught the eye of Rick Welts, then president of the Golden State Warriors. The NBA basketball team was preparing to open the Chase Center in San Francisco and, as Welts told The Athletic, hiring Stone to lead the effort was “the easiest decision that we’ve ever made.” Stone’s successful launch of the revolutionary facility would earn it the Sports Business Journal’s 2019 Venue of the Year award. But she soon faced another daunting challenge: the COVID-19 pandemic. Her creation of a response team and implementation of on-site testing was so successful that the Chase Center became one of the first sports facilities to earn accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council.

Stone has also overcome many personal challenges. When she and her longtime partner wanted to marry in 2007, the couple had to do so in Canada, where same-sex marriages were legal. When they wanted to adopt a child, they had to wait until Florida overturned its law barring same-sex couples from adopting. Stone and her wife were the 13th same-sex couple to adopt a child in the state. As she told The Athletic, “If you value who you are and try to work along those lines, I tend to think things will work out for you.”

Stone has earned many honors over her career, including being named one of Billboard’s Women in Music Top Executives in 2023 and Woman of the Year by Women in Sports and Events. She served on the University of Miami’s President’s Council for over a decade and was enshrined in the University of North Carolina Public Relations Hall of Fame.

The University is proud to welcome Kimberly Stone, a trailblazer who has charted her own path to the top of the sports and entertainment world, as today’s commencement speaker.

The Great Seal of the University of Miami

The Great Seal of the University of Miami symbolizes exceptional scholarship, a limitless quest for knowledge, and an abiding commitment to service shared by University faculty, staff, and students. The Great Seal includes a stylized sun and palm tree, as well as a shield with the traditional symbols of education—a key, a book, and a torch. The key signifies the unlocking, discovery, or reevaluation

of learning and knowledge. The book holds the Latin words for discovery, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge. And, the torch symbolizes the spread and dissemination of learning. Below the shield is the University’s Latin motto, from the Book of Esdras, Magna Est Veritas: Great Is Truth.

47

The Mace

The academic mace, an enduring symbol of institutional authority and prestige, is a vestige from prehistoric times. First used as a battle weapon, the mace evolved into a ceremonial staff carried in processions of royalty, magistrates, and church or university officials.

The University of Miami’s current mace, which dates back to 1986, was sculpted by former art professor William Ward. He chose a contemporary design, one that reflects the University’s timelessness and perpetual growth from a young institution to one of national prominence. The clean lines and polished silver surface are elegant; dignified; and reflective of colors, textures, and forms in the everchanging environment. Ward indicated that timelessness is further represented by the mace’s geometric design. Rather than employing symbols like books, candles, or globes, he noted that these geometric shapes are not tied to fad or style but are an integral part of our world.

“There are obvious relationships to mathematics and the sciences, and as the mace is rotated, some of the planes at the top resemble letters. Its complexity is like the unfolding plot of a good story,” Ward said.

The University of Miami’s mace serves as a symbolic weapon to protect the ideals of truth, justice, and learning. During the commencement ceremony, it is carried at the head of the academic procession by the grand marshal, whose symbolic duty is the protection of the University, its people, and its processes.

In 2019, staff and faculty members in the Department of Theatre Arts performed preservation and restoration work on the mace, crafting a new base and reviving the original sheen so that, after decades of use, the mace continues to play its role in the University’s commencement ceremonies.

The University of Miami Presidential Chair

The University of Miami Presidential Chair, or cathedra, took its place in 2016 on the commencement stage as a symbol of the Office of the President. Traditionally representing the seat of learning, the cathedra was designed and crafted by master furniture maker Austin Matheson, an adjunct professor in the School of Architecture, whose family history in South Florida predates the University’s 1925 founding.

Matheson carved and joined what appear to be the seamless pieces of the chair from a single slab of highly prized and once-abundant Cuban mahogany. It was salvaged from a tree felled by a hurricane in nearby Coconut Grove. The fluidity of his design represents the idea that “We Are One U,” while his use of a contemporary style and a few traditional

flourishes represent the University’s rich past and promising future. “The chair is unique. It has no precedent. It stands alone,” Matheson said.

Etched by laser, the Great Seal of the University of Miami is prominently displayed on the splat, or back, of the chair. More subtly, twin silhouettes of an ibis head, with its graceful beak, adorn each side of the crest rail. Known for its invincible spirit when hurricanes approach, the marsh bird has been the school mascot since the University opened its doors, just a month after the hurricane of 1926 devastated Miami. Like the chair, the ibis continues to be a symbol of our resilience and renewal as we approach our new century.

48

Academic Honors and Regalia

The ceremonies of commencement immerse us in the rich tradition of academic honors and dress that reaches back to the early days of the world’s oldest universities.

The University of Miami awards degrees in three basic divisions—the doctorate, master’s, and baccalaureate—which can be traced to medieval times. The student receiving a “first degree in arts” was crowned with a wreath of laurel berries, hence “baccalaureate” and “bachelor.” The master’s degree was a license to teach (Licentia docendi), so the “master” was an appropriate title. The doctor was even better qualified to teach, for this degree required advanced study, independent research, and defense of a dissertation. These standards still apply to the doctorate, except for those conferred honoris causa (as honorary degrees) for meritorious service in public or private endeavor.

Some degrees are awarded with special recognition. For those who have achieved appropriate standards in their work, the words cum laude (with praise), magna cum laude (with high praise), and summa cum laude (with highest praise) are used. Students who have met formal scholarly demands, including both specified courses and high overall grade averages, may graduate with “General Honors.” These achievements are recorded on diplomas and in official transcripts.

From medieval practice, academic dress has three items: cap, gown, and hood. In reviving the use of these items for the United States, an intercollegiate commission in 1895 drafted a code that most universities,

including the University of Miami, follow.

For all degrees, the mortarboard is the traditional cap. The tassel may be gold for a doctor or may indicate the field of study.

The bachelor’s gown is black with long, pointed, open sleeves. The master’s gown is black with a long, closed sleeve hanging below the elbow. The doctor’s gown is black and is distinguished by three bars of velvet on a full sleeve.

The academic hood is the identifying symbol of the degree. Its length indicates which degree it represents: three feet for the baccalaureate, three-and-a-half for the master’s, and four for the doctorate. The lining indicates the college or university that awarded the degree. University of Miami hoods are lined in orange, green, and white. The color of the velvet band represents the academic discipline. The most frequently seen colors are white for arts, yellow for science, pink for music, sapphire blue for philosophy, purple for law, scarlet for divinity, green for medicine, light blue for education, drab for business, orange for engineering, violet for architecture, gray for general studies, and apricot for nursing.

President Julio Frenk wears a black robe with four black velvet bars. The fourth chevron indicates this is the presidential regalia. The gown features orange and green piping as well as a doctoral hood lined in orange, green, and white—reflecting the official University of Miami school colors.

The Music of the Ceremony

University of Miami Fanfare

Great universities throughout the country begin their halftime performances with a special fanfare consisting of small portions of their school fight songs and alma mater. The fanfare signals the start of halftime festivities, exciting the crowd and encouraging loyal fans to remain in their seats during the band’s performance.

Following the Miami Hurricane’s National Championship season in 2001-2002, David Lambert, D.M.A. ’05, wrote a similar fanfare for the

University of Miami. “UM Fanfare” was premiered by the University of Miami Band of the Hour during the 2004 Miami Hurricane home football opener versus Florida State University. It has since been performed as a prelude to all Band of the Hour performances and has become a part of the University of Miami’s commencement to announce the opening of the ceremony.

President’s Processional Fanfare

Commencement ceremonies are rich in history, tradition, and ritual. Over the years, the University of Miami has had a number of talented musicians and composers contribute to that history and tradition. The “President’s Processional Fanfare—Toward Our New Century” was

commissioned by the Phillip and Patricia Frost School of Music for the inauguration of the University of Miami's sixth president, Julio Frenk. Written by Brian Balmages, M.M. ’00, the fanfare premiered on January 29, 2016, at Frenk’s inauguration ceremony.
