Rosemary DePaolo 

Chancellor 
University of North Carolina at Wilmington 

Dr. Rosemary DePaolo became the third chancellor and sixth leader of the 
University of North Carolina at Wilmington in July 2003. She is the first woman 
to head the university. 

Under her leadership, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington continues to 
rise in academic quality and popularity. The university is recognized by 
U.S. News & World Report as the sixth best public comprehensive university in the 
south, and Kiplinger's magazine ranks UNCW 35 th among the top 100 best buys for 
public higher education in the country. Since her arrival, DePaolo has engaged 
the university community in a pivotal initiative of benchmarking and strategic 
planning to further enhance the overall educational experience for students, faculty 
and staff. She is also actively involved in several initiatives to improve the university's 
outreach efforts with the city of Wilmington, the Greater Wilmington Chamber of 
Commerce and various southeastern North Carolina counties. 

Before arriving in Wilmington, DePaolo served as president of Georgia College & 
State University. While there, she led Georgia College & State University through a 
period of unprecedented change, including a new mission and direction as Georgia's 
designated public liberal arts university. She earlier served as dean of the College of 
Arts and Sciences at Western Carolina University, as an administrator at Georgia Southern 
University and as an English professor at Augusta State University. 

A nationally recognized humanities scholar and leader in higher education, 
DePaolo serves on the boards of the" Association of American Colleges and Universities 
and the Southern Center for International Studies. In January 2001, she was named 
one of the 100 Most Influential Georgians by Georgia Trend magazine, and a year 
later, she was named one of the magazine's Most Notable Georgians. 

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens College of the City University of 
New York and a master of arts and a doctorate in 18th century English literature 
from Rutgers University. 

A native of Long Island, N.Y., DePaolo is married to Fred Wharton, a retired 
professor of English.

Installation Participants 



Fred Chappell, who delivered the Inaugural Reading, was born in Canton, in the mountains of 
North Carolina. He received graduate and undergraduate degrees at Duke University 
and for many years has taught at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Author of 
a dozen books of verse, two volumes of stories and seven novels, he has been awarded the 
Sir Walter Raleigh Prize, the Best Foreign Book Prize from the Academia Francaise, 
the North Carolina Medal in Literature, and an award in literature from the National 
Academy of Arts and Letters. For his poetry, he has been awarded the Bollingen Prize and 
the Aiken Taylor Prize. His work has been translated into many languages, including 
Finnish, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese and Farsi. He and his wife, Susan, live in Greensboro. 

Ernest Berlin Fullwood - The Honorable Ernest Fullwood was sworn in as the Fifth District's 
Superior Court Judge 16 years ago and became the first African- American to obtain this position 
in Southeastern North Carolina. A Wilmington native, Judge Fullwood graduated from 
Williston High School in 1962 and was admitted to Wilmington College (now UNCW), 
where he graduated in 1966, with the intention of going to Howard University to study law. 
However, a two-year tour of duty with the U.S. Army put this on hold. In 1972, Judge 
Fullwood graduated with a law degree from North Carolina Central University, where he 
also taught as an assistant professor of law. Judge Fullwood often feels that the hardest part of 
his job is maintaining a sense of balance in his decisions. He is married to Cynthia Fullwood 
and is the father of three children.

Invocation 

Gib unsern Fiirsten" (Give to Our Leaders) by Heinrich Schiitz 

1648 dedicatory motet for the Peace of Westphalia 

Translation: Give to our leaders and ruling powers 

peace and good leadership; 
So that we, under them, 

may have a productive and peaceful life, 
in devotion to God and honesty. 

Inaugural Song 

'Untraveled Worlds" by Paul Halley 
Setting of a poem from "Ulysses" by Alfred Lord Tennyson 

I cannot rest from travel; I will drink life to the lees. 

All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, 

both with those that love me, and alone. 

I am a part of all that I have met; 

Yet all experience is an arch wherethrough 

Gleams the untraveled world whose margin fades. 

Forever and forever when I move. 

How dull it is to pause, to make an end, 

to rust unburnished, not to shine in use! 

As though to breathe were life! Life piled on life 

were all too little, and of one to me 

little remains; but every hour is saved 

from that eternal silence, something more, 

a bringer of new things; and vile it were 

for some three suns to store and hoard myself, 

and this gray spirit yearning in desire 

to follow knowledge like a sinking star, 

beyond the utmost bound of human thought. 

Come, my friends, 

'Tis not too late to seek a newer world. 

Push off, and sitting well in order smite 

the sounding furrows; for my purpose holds 

to sail beyond the sunset, and the baths 

of all the western start, until I die. 

Though much is taken, much abides; and though 

we are not now that strength which in old days 

moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are, 

one equal temper of heroic hearts, 

made weak by time and fate, but strong in will 

to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield!

University History and background 



Education on the college level first came to Wilmington in 1946 when a college center was 
established under the direction of the North Carolina College Conference and under the 
administration of the Directorate of Extension of the University of North Carolina. The center 
offered courses on the freshman level to some 250 students during the academic year 1946- 
47. In 1947, a tax levy was approved by the citizens of New Hanover County, and Wilmington 
College was brought into existence as a county institution under the control of the New Hanover 
County Board of Education. In 1948, Wilmington College was officially accredited by the 
North Carolina College Conference and became a member of the American Association of 
Junior Colleges. In 1952, the institution was accredited as a two-year college by the Southern 
Association of Colleges and Schools. 

In 1958, New Hanover County voted to place the college under the Community College Act of 
the State of North Carolina. By virtue of this vote, the college became a part of the state 
system of higher education, and control passed from the New Hanover County Board of Education to 
a board of 12 trustees, eight of whom were appointed locally and four of whom were 
appointed by the governor of the state. At the same time, the requirements for admission, 
graduation, and the general academic standards of the college came under the supervision of 
the North Carolina Board of Higher Education, and the college began to receive an 
appropriation from the state for operating expenses in addition to the local tax. 

On July 1, 1963, by an act of the General Assembly of North Carolina, Wilmington College became a 
senior college with a four-year curriculum, authorized to offer the bachelor's degree. 

By vote of the Board of Trustees of the University of North Carolina in late 1968, 
with subsequent approval by the North Carolina Board of Higher Education, and by an act 
of the General Assembly of North Carolina in 1969, Wilmington College became, on July 1, 
1969, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. 

On October 30, 1971, the General Assembly in special session merged, without changing 
their names, the remaining 10 state-supported senior institutions into the university. Thus, the 
University of North Carolina now comprises 16 institutions. 

On August 22, 1977, the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina 
authorized the University of North Carolina at Wilmington to offer its first graduate 
programs at the master's level. 

In the spring of 1985, the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina elevated 
the University of North Carolina at Wilmington to a Comprehensive Level I University. 

The programs offered by the university include four-year programs leading to the Bachelor of 
Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Social Work 
degrees within the College of Arts and Sciences, the Cameron School of Business, the Watson 
School of Education, and the School of Nursing; graduate programs leading to the Master 
of Arts, the Master of Arts in Teaching, the Master of Business Administration, the Master of 
Education, the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, the Master of Public Administration, 
the Master of School Administration, the Master of Science, the Master of Science in Accountancy 
and the Master of Science in Nursing degrees; a Ph.D. in Marine Biology; a variety of pre- 
professional programs, special programs in a variety of areas, including marine science 
research, and continuing education. 



'The University Mace 



The university mace 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, the 
Watson 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, N.C., 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 University Medallion 



The university medallion, along with academic processionals, regalia and the university 
mace, is also a symbol steeped in tradition. During the Middle Ages, medallions signified 
membership in religious orders and in the Renaissance they were worn by members of elite 
orders of knighthood and high ranking government officers. Today, colleges and universities 
strike medallions to commemorate important events and achievements. 

Symbolic of the highest honor and office of a campus, the medallion is to be worn by the 
chancellor for ceremonial occasions such as commencement, convocation and installation. 

All the more special, the medallion being presented to Chancellor DePaolo today is the 
inaugural University of North Carolina at Wilmington medallion. Designed with the "Soaring to 
Greatness" theme, the university is proud to add this to its honored historic artifacts. 



Academic %cgaiia 



The academic regalia usually recognizes three different academic degrees: the bachelor, 
the master and the doctor. The name of each degree is derived by medieval university 
custom. The bachelor's degree, or baccalaureate, takes its name from the medieval practice of 
"bachelors" wearing a garland of bayberries. The master's degree is equivalent to a license 
to teach and sometimes was followed by the express words "Licentia Docendi." The 
doctor's degree, when earned by study, as is true of the Doctor of Philosophy degree, indicates 
advanced study and independent research in a specialized field of learning, whereas 
honorary degrees are granted for meritorious service and for distinction in public or private 
endeavor. In medieval universities, students and teachers wore gowns indicating their status 
and scholastic achievement. This tradition continues today. 

Those holding a bachelor's degree wear a gown of worsted material, fastened at the top, 
and distinguished by long pointed sleeves hanging nearly to the knees. The master's gown, 
worn open, has long closed sleeves with an arc of a circle appearing near the bottom of a slit 
for the arm near the middle of the sleeves. The doctor's gown, also worn open, is faced 
with a broad strip of velvet and has three bars of velvet on each sleeve. 

A hood may be worn with the gown. The bachelor's hood is three feet long, with a two-inch 
strip of velvet; the master's hood is three and one-half feet long, faced with a three-inch strip 
of velvet; the doctor's hood is four feet long and faced with a five-inch strip of velvet. 
The color of the tassel or the velvet strip on the hood indicates the field of study in which the 
degree was earned or granted; for example: Arts, white; Science, yellow; Education, light blue; 
Nursing, apricot; Business, drab. Each hood is also lined in silk with the colors of the institution 
which granted the degree. UNCW's hood is lined with green and gold. 

The appropriate cap for all degrees is the familiar black "mortarboard." A black tassel, or 
one of the colors signifying the field of specialization, hanging on the left of the face, is 
appropriate for all degrees. Those holding a doctor's degree may wear a soft velvet cap of the 
color indicating their field of study or with the "mortarboard" may wear a tassel in whole or in 
part of gold thread. 



Historic Isaac (Bear (Betf 



The bell used in the Installation Ceremony is the original hand bell from the Isaac Bear public 
school building that served generations of students in New Hanover County. In 1947, this 
building became the first home for Wilmington College. After moving to the current campus 
the historical ties were continued in 1972 when a new campus classroom building was 
named Isaac Bear Hall.
