A Sending: Light, Liberty and Learning 

Written by Professors: 
Lore DeBower, James Kershner, and Nancy Willets 

This evening we have celebrated the community 

of Cape Cod Community College. 

We have honored many members of this community: 

faculty, staff and students. But most of all we have honored 

those of you in the graduating class of 2006. 

Now it is time for this celebration to draw to a close, 

and for you to move on. 

We send you forth with wishes that reflect the college motto of "light, 

liberty and learning." 

Go forth with light. 

Let your knowledge be a light that continues to shine. 

Remember that light can be a beacon to those in peril. 

Go forth with liberty. 

Celebrate and cherish the liberty we hold so dear. 

Remember it is your knowledge that protects that liberty. 

Go forth with learning. 

Pursue learning for your own sake. 

Remember that learning continues beyond these halls. 

Wherever your life's journey leads from here, go in peace. 
Keep us in your hearts as we will keep you in ours. 
Go forth with light, with liberty and with learning.

The Academic Procession and Regalia 

Traditional commencement academic procession and regalia date 
back to the Middle Ages. Voluminous gowns were worn to ward off 
the damp and cold of medieval buildings; mortarboards were used as 
hats. When laymen, clergy and scholars continued to wear the robes, 
with variations in style and color identifying different monastic orders, 
abandoned those styles. The bachelor, master, and doctor gowns differ 
stylistically in cut and decorative motif. 

Today the hood is especially important in identifying the academic 
achievements of its wearer. Originally, the hoods were worn over the 
head. A long tassel is attached to the middle point of the top of the cap 
to drape over the edge of the mortarboard. Tassels may be black, gold, 
or a color appropriate to the academic field of the wearer. The colors 
of the hood lining indicate the institution granting the degree. The 
width of the velvet trim indicates the highest degree held; the color of 
the trim indicates the field of study. 

An intercollegiate code representing different departments of 
learning has set the standards for academic dress in the United States. 
The colors are assigned as follows: 





Arts, Letters, Humanities 




Business Administration 






Oratory (Speech) 

Silver Gray 




Olive Green 


Light Blue 


Dark Blue 



Physical Education 

Sage Green 

Fine Arts 


Public Administration 

Peacock Blue

The office of mace bearer is purely ceremonial. It derives from 
medieval times in England when an official was taking office or open- 
ing his court and needed a bodyguard. Then the mace, a formidable 
weapon, was held ready to protect the person of the dignity. 

From the 16th century in England and since colonial days in 
America, it has become a symbol of office only, and is carried by a dis- 
tinguished member of the faculty. The mace bearer, who immediately 
precedes the president both entering and leaving the ceremony, while 
often not included in today's exercises, remains popular on the older 
campuses in the East. 

At Cape Cod Community College, the academic regalia of the 
Board of Trustees correspond to doctoral caps and gowns with gold 
tassels; the colorful hoods lined with red display the College colors of 
silver and blue. Faculty robes signify the wearer's respective university 
and discipline. The mace, a gift of the Class of 1984, is borne by the 
Grand Marshal who leads the academic procession.
