It is an evolving comprehensive university that values close relationships among students, faculty, and staff in a diverse, supportive, and challenging intellectual environment. The university owes much of its dynamic character to its heritage and location. The university began as Wilmington College in 1947 and joined the University of North Carolina system in 1969. The student- centered philosophy of the university comes in part from its origin as a community college with small classes and extensive interaction between students and faculty. With growth, the focus has expanded to include graduate students, bringing increased opportunities for scholarly activities. As the only public university in southeastern North Carolina, the university is committed to providing lifelong learning opportunities, assisting with the improvement of public school education, and enhancing the personal, cultural, and economic health of the region. Located in a historic port city, the university provides related experiences in cultural, commercial, and archaeological studies. The proximity of the Atlantic Ocean enables the university to be a leader in marine studies and provides an exceptional opportunity to teach and practice environmental awareness and responsibility. The programs offered by the university include four-year programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees within the College of Arts and Sciences, the Cameron School of Business Administration, the School of Education, and the School of Nursing. Graduate programs leading to the Master of Education, the Master of Science, the Master of Arts, the Master of Arts in Teaching, and the Master of Business Administration degrees are also available. A cooperative doctoral program in marine biology is offered in conjunction with North Carolina State University. I Presidents, Wilmington College T. T. Hamilton 1947-1951 John T. Hoggard 1951-1958 William M. Randall 1958-1968 William H. Wagoner 1968-1969 Chancellors, The University of North Carolina at Wilmington William H. Wagoner 1969-1990 James R. Leutze 1990 - THE UNIVERSITY MACE The UNCW mace, carried for the first time at the installation ceremony, incorporates elements and materials important to the history of our university and region. The boss, or top of the mace, represents the essence of education, the flame of learning. It was designed to embody humankind's timeless pursuit of knowledge and quest for truth. Below the boss are four official seals important to the university's history. They represent: the County of New Hanover, Wilmington College, the University of North Carolina, and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Four bands on the shaft symbolize UNCW's four academic areas: the College of Arts and Sciences, the Cameron School of Business Administration, the School of Education, and the School of Nursing. The terminus, or end piece, consists of a long leaf pine cone to symbolize the state tree that is common to the landscape of southeastern North Carolina. The boss and terminus are cast bronze and gold plated. The shaft is made of live oak, a tree indigenous to the area and characterized as hardy and enduring. Four gold-plated bands on the shaft resemble dentil molding common in the Georgian architecture of our campus. The bands are inlaid with mother of pearl to symbolize the university's ties to the Atlantic and leadership in marine studies. The mace was designed by Jeff Morvil, a Wilmington artist, and created by Marvin Jensen, a Penland, North Carolina sculptor. Archaeological evidence indicates that maces were used ceremonially in the Chalcolithic Era, 4000-3100 B.C.E. Findings reveal that Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Mayan civilizations used a mace as a weapon and regarded it as a sign of power. During medieval times the mace was used as a battle weapon by bishops. Today it is a symbol of authority. The UNCW mace will be carried by the university marshal at future formal academic ceremonies. ACADEMIC REGALIA Colorful academic costumes are a notable feature of formal college and university functions throughout the world. Their design and the custom of wearing them at commencements, convocations, and inaugurations goes back to the Middle Ages when people of different social classes dressed distinctively. Because universities of that period were closely tied to the church, it is not surprising that the gowns worn by students and professors were similar to clerical robes. Though academic regalia may appear to be only decorative, heavy robes and hoods were quite practical for students and teachers working and living in unheated buildings. Wearing regalia at contemporary academic events reminds participants and observers of the long tradition of higher education in western culture. Academic regalia has been continuously used in European universities, but did not become popular in American schools until the nineteenth century when increasing numbers of Americans received doctoral degrees in Europe and returned with colorful hoods and gowns along with diplomas. Doctoral education became established in America in the latter part of the nineteenth century and so did the use of regalia by students and faculty at formal academic occasions. The basic design of the American academic costume was first established in 1895 when leading colleges adopted a set of standards maintained today by the American Council on Education and the Intercollegiate Bureau of Academic Costume. European schools never standardized designs and the unusual robes, hats, and hoods seen in American processions usually represent degrees awarded by foreign universities. Caps are most commonly stiff "mortarboards," a style originating at Oxford during the sixteenth century, though soft, multicornered tams are not uncommon. Tassels on caps tell the degree earned: black for bachelor's and master's degrees and gold for doctorates. The code of the Bureau of Academic Costume provides for three types of gowns. Bachelor's gowns are black with long, pointed sleeves; master's gowns are black and have long, closed sleeves with an arc near the bottom and a slit for the arm. The doctoral gowns are usually black with full, round open sleeves. Doctoral gowns also have wide velvet trim on the front and three velvet chevrons on the sleeves. The velvet trim may be a different shade of black or in a color matching the trim on the hood, the color symbolizing the subject area of the degree. Individuals in an academic procession normally wear the costume appropriate to the highest degree they hold. Hoods are the most colorful, distinctive, and symbolic feature of academic regalia. Originally a cowl, a shoulder cape, and a container for collecting alms, the hood is now worn in the back suspended from the shoulders. The bachelor's hood is three feet long, the master's three and a half, and the doctor's four feet long with wide side panels. For all degrees the colors of the conferring institution decorate the hood's lining and the color of the velvet border indicates the major field of study. The University of North Carolina at Wilmington hood is lined with green and gold. HOOD BORDER COLORS INDICATING FIELDS OF STUDY Arts: WHITE, Science: YELLOW; Education: LIGHT BLUE; Engineering: ORANGE; Music: PINK; Library Science: LEMON YELLOW; Business: DRAB; Law: PURPLE; Divinity: SCARLET; Medicine: GREEN; Philosophy: DARK BLUE, Nursing: APRICOT.
