Baxter Frank C. Baxter Professor Emeritus of English Professor Emeritus of English University of Southern California 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 bachelor’s students are made of black material and have long, pointed sleeves. They should be worn closed. 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. In 2018, the university unveiled new custom regalia for bachelor’s and master’s students. The new gowns feature a cardinal band and the USC shield on the sleeves, along with cardinal piping. The custom regalia highlights the prestigious brand of USC in an elegant and timeless manner. The doctor’s gown is an elaborate costume marked by velvet panels down the front and around the neck and by three bars of the same material on the bell-shaped sleeves. It is cut much fuller than

4

the other gowns and 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.) 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 that 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. The hood is lined with the colors of the school awarding the degree; at USC, the silk lining is gold with a cardinal chevron. 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) and master of science (gold) degrees are bestowed by the Graduate School. The color of the velvet band around the hood for all PhDs is dark blue. Specialty degrees have individual colors based on the degree earned. 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 Middle Ages.

ACADEMIC REGALIA

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 asked Dr. Walker to design 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 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. 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 university’s past presidents and the current president 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.

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.

Trustee Gowns The cardinal robes of office worn by university trustees were designed by Dr. Jerome B. Walker for President James H. Zumberge’s 1981 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.

At the University of Southern California, marshals are traditionally chosen from the ranks of the faculty to lead the student procession at the New Student Convocation and Commencement. The university marshal and the president of the faculty march at the head of the procession.

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 SYMBOLS OF THE UNIVERSITY

AC ADEMIC SYMBOLS OF THE UNIVERSIT Y

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.

HERALDIC FLAGS

HERALDIC FL AGS

Originally 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 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 knowledge is a clear and honorable symbol, well suited to an institution of higher learning, and is one of the charges on the university’s official seal. The university seal also contains a sun. Known as a “sun in its splendor,” it has a perimeter featuring 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. The torch and the sun are used to unite these disciplines under the flag of the University of Southern California.

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 modern bridge represents progress, connections and stability. The blue background, representing the sky, suggests the almost limitless scope of architecture.

Art and Design Academic colors: brown for arts, white for letters. Here the symbols reflect two important branches of art and design. The paintbrush and pencil symbolize fine arts such as painting, drawing and sculpture. The abstract symbol, with its pixel-like design, reflects the emergence and evolution of digital arts.

College of Letters, Arts and Sciences Academic colors: white for letters, gold 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 knowledge serves as a reminder that the college is the academic heart of the university.

The Graduate School Academic color: white for arts, gold for sciences, royal blue for the doctorate. In heraldry, 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.

Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation Academic color: brown. The supernova, an astronomical event that occurs during stellar evolution causing the sudden appearance of a new, brighter star, represents the idea of disruption and the supreme energy exhibited by the founders and students of the academy. The flag’s additional colors are described in heraldic language as metals: gold and bronze.

Bovard College Academic color: white. The soaring sails symbolize confidence and agility in providing a student-centered approach to learning. The rooted plant is a symbol of the stability, growth and abundance of opportunity. Colors featured in the flag are rendered as metals—gold, silver and bronze—in traditional heraldic terms.

HERALDIC FLAGS

Business Academic color: drab. The square figures that are symmetrically arranged on this flag are designed to symbolize the organizational characteristics of business in all its complexity. The interconnected sphere represents an enterprising and global approach to business.

Cinematic Arts Academic colors: brown for arts, white for letters. The six triangles represent the strength of the individual specialties, such as camera, editing, sound, writing, criticism and aesthetics, that form the larger discipline of cinematic arts. When combined, they form an aperture, at the center of which is the human eye, representing the mediation essential to the discipline.

Communication and Journalism Academic colors: crimson for communication, white for journalism. The three data waves emanating from the transmitter in both directions 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. The quill tip within the keyhole represents freedom of the press.

Dance Academic color: amethyst. Dance is one of the oldest and most central expressions of humanity. The two interlocking figures represent creativity and innovation, and they capture the artistry of bodies in motion. The sun in its splendor represents the courage and power incumbent in authentic artistic creation, and white is the traditional heraldic color representing the arts and humanities.

Dentistry Academic color: lilac. Dentistry, like the other scholarly areas associated with health care, uses the traditional Asclepian staff and serpent—in this case, enclosed in a capital Greek letter, delta, an homage to the official emblem of dentistry.

Dramatic Arts Academic colors: brown for arts, white for letters. The classic emblem of comedy and tragedy is based on masks worn by actors in ancient Greek theater productions. They reflect not only the two main genres of the dramatic arts, but also the duality of the human experience.

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. The flame from the torch of knowledge illuminates the tip of the lamp.

Engineering Academic color: orange. The interlinked circles, inspired by the classic mathematical Borromean rings, join the cogs and gears in this flag to symbolize the way in which the profession of engineering interacts with math and the applied sciences to solve society’s most pressing and wicked problems.

HERALDIC FLAGS

Gerontology Academic color: white. The very characteristic architecture of this school is incorporated in the flag, along with the oak tree, symbolizing sturdiness and longevity, and acorns, representing the constant renewal of life.

Law Academic color: purple. The four points surrounding the gavel in this flag symbolize the levels at which the legal profession provides a bulwark and framework for our society: federal, state, county and local. The scales of justice reflect the fair and impartial balance sought by the law.

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

Pharmacy Academic color: olive. Pharmacy is symbolized by the bowl of Hygeia, the Greek goddess of health, coupled with the Asclepian serpent, showing the intrinsic relationship between pharmacy and medicine.

Public Policy Academic color: peacock blue. The school’s work is represented in triads, reflecting the intersection of three sectors, three levels of government, three locations and three levels of degree programs. The three shapes that come together to form the obelisk evoke those triads. The symbol of the obelisk surrounded by stars reflects structure, security and liberty.

Social Work Academic color: citron. As symbolized by outstretched hands cradling the globe, 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.

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