ACADEMIC HERALDRY: THE SYMBOLS OF LEARNING 

The university commencement procession is a pageant, alive and bright 
with the dress and ceremony inherited from the medieval universities of the 
eleventh and twelfth centuries. 

To preserve their dignity and meaning it became necessary for these 
universities to set rules for academic dress. American universities agreed on 
a definite system in 1895 and set up a code of academic dress. In 1932 the 
American Council on Education presented a revised code which governs the 
style today. 

The Gown. The flowing gown comes from the twelfth century. It has 
become symbolic of the democracy of scholarship, for it completely covers 
any dress of rank or social standing beneath it. It is black for all degrees with 
pointed sleeves for the Bachelor's degree; long closed sleeves for the Master's 
degree, with a slit for the arm; and round open sleeves for the Doctor's degree. 
The gown worn for Bachelor's or Master's degrees has no trimmings. The 
gown for the Doctorate degrees is faced down the front with velvet and has 
three bars of velvet across the sleeves, in the color distinctive of the discipline 
to which the degree pertains. For certain institutions the official colors of the 
college or university may appear on the gown or its decorations. 

The Cap. The freed slave in Ancient Rome won the privilege of 
wearing a cap, and so the academic cap is a sign of the freedom of scholarship 
and the responsibility and dignity with which scholarship endows the wearer. 
Old poetry records the cap of scholarship as square to symbolize the book, 
although some authorities claim that the mortar board is the symbol of the 
masons, a privileged guild. The color of the tassel on the cap denotes the 
discipline, although a gold tassel may be worn with a doctoral gown. 

The Hood. Heraldically, the hood is an inverted shield with one or 
more chevrons of a secondary color on the ground of the primary color of 
the college. The color of the facing of the hood denotes the discipline 
represented by the degree; the color of the lining of the hood designates the 
university or college from which the degree was granted. 

The Mace. The mace, carried by the Chief Marshal, was in medieval 
times a weapon of war. Today it is a ceremonial symbol of authority. It is 
universally carried in academic and ecclesiastical processions. 

The mace carried in today's procession was conceived, designed and 
made by Jesse O. Morgan, a friend of LSU Medical Center in Shreveport. 



Oath of Hippocrates 

I do solemnly swear by that which I hold most sacred that I will be loyal 
to the Profession of Medicine and just and generous to its Members. 

That I will lead my life and practice my Art in uprighteousness and honor. 

That into whatever house I will enter, it shall be for the good of the sick to 
the utmost of my power. 

That, holding myself aloof from wrong, from corruption, from the tempting 
of others to vice, I will exercise my Art solely for the cure of my patient 
and will give no drug, perform no operation for a criminal purpose, even 
if solicited, far less suggest it. 

That whatsoever I shall see or hear of the lives of men which is not fitting 
to be spoken, I will keep inviolably secret. 

These things do I promise. And in proportion as I am faithful to this, my 
oath, may happiness and good repute be ever mine. In the opposite if I 
shall be foresworn.
