COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 

DR. EUGENE E. HUSKEY 

Dr. Eugene Huskey, Stetson University professor of Political Science and director of its interdisciplinary Russian 
Studies program, is an internationally known expert on Russian and Central Asian politics and legal affairs. 
His specialty is Kyrgyzstan, a Central Asian state created by the break-up of the Soviet Union. 

A native Floridian, he earned a doctorate in Politics at the London School of Economics and Political Science 
in 1983, but his interest in Russian affairs began in high school when he began to study the language. He 
earned his bachelor's degree in History and Political Science from Vanderbilt University in 1974 and a master's 
degree in Politics from the University of Essex in 1976. He spent the 1979-80 academic year at Moscow State 
University doing doctoral research. 

Before joining Stetson's College of Arts & Sciences faculty in 1989, he taught at Bowdoin College and Colgate 
University. In 1999, he was appointed to the William R. Kenan Jr. Chair in recognition of his wide-ranging 
accomplishments as a teacher and scholar. He also won Stetson's 2007 McEniry Award for Excellence in 
Teaching, the most prestigious honor given to a DeLand faculty member; and has received Stetson's Hand 
Award for Research twice. 

Fluent in Russian, he frequently travels to Russia and Central Asia and has written three books and dozens of 
academic articles on the Russian executive, Soviet and post-Soviet law and politics of Kyrgyzstan. He has 
lectured at leading American and foreign universities, including Oxford, Harvard and Johns Hopkins; and 
presented seminars for the U. S. State Department in Washington, D.C., and in Uzbekistan. 

He is the associate editor of Russian Review and a member of the editorial board of Advokat (the journal of the 
Moscow Bar Association), The Journal of Postcommunist and Transition Studies (Glasgow) and Demokratizatsiya: 
The journal of Post-Soviet Democratization (Washington, D.C). 



Graduation Pledge 



Initiated by the Class of 2002 and the Student Government Association 

Stetson University 

This voluntary commitment is part of a national movement in which college graduates sign a pledge to "lead 
responsible lives." Seniors who have signed the Stetson University pledge wear green and gold ribbons at 
Commencement to indicate their intention to live thoughtfully and responsibly, drawing on values they have 
developed here as they move forward in life and work: 

I acknowledge the impact of my decisions on others, on society, and on the environment. 
As I graduate from Stetson University and begin advanced study or my life's work, I 
pledge to consider the social, spiritual, and environmental consequences of my actions. 
As I make daily choices, I will do my best to enhance the lives of others, to deepen my 
understanding of the spiritual dimension of human life, and to demonstrate respect for 
the natural world. 



Mission 

Stetson University is committed to educating 
students to lead great lives, working in a creative 
community where learning and values meet. Our 
faculty and staff are devoted to fostering the 
qualities of mind and heart that will prepare 
students to reach their full potential as informed 
citizens of local communities and the world. 

We practice the art of teaching through 
programs solidly grounded in a tradition of liberal 
learning in order to stimulate critical thinking, 
imaginative inquiry, creative expression, and 
lively intellectual debate. At Stetson, the art of 
learning is enhanced through small interactive 
classes, close student-faculty alliances, and 
collaborative approaches that provide the 
foundation for rewarding careers and advanced 
study in graduate and professional programs. 

We embrace diverse methodologies to foster 
effective communication, information and 
technological literacy, and aesthetic appreciation. 
We encourage the development of informed 
convictions, independent judgment, and lifelong 
commitments to learning that are characteristic 
features of the enlightened citizen. In bringing 
together learning and values, the University 
encourages all of its members to demonstrate 
personal integrity; to develop an appreciation for 
the spiritual dimension of life; to embrace 
leadership in an increasingly complex, 
interdependent, and technological world; and to 
commit to active forms of social and 
environmental responsibility. 

Heritage 

Stetson University, Florida's first private 
university, was founded in 1883 by Henry A. 
DeLand, a New York philanthropist, as DeLand 
Academy. In 1887, the Legislature of the State of 
Florida enacted the Charter of DeLand University 
as an independent and autonomous institution of 
higher learning. The university name was changed 
in 1889 to honor John B. Stetson, the nationally 
known hat manufacturer who gave generously of 
his time and means to advance the quality and 
reputation of the institution, and who served, with 
Mr. DeLand and others, as a founding trustee of 
the university. 

Stetson's first president, Dr. John F Forbes, 
clearly described the commitment to teaching, 
which has been a hallmark of the university 
throughout its history: 



"Buildings, libraries and apparatus are good 
and give added power, but the vital contact of 
students with a vigorous and stimulating mind and 
heart - this is the sine qua non of a successful 
education... The most important thing is to find 
men and women of large heart and mind, apt to 
teach and full of enthusiasm and stimulating 
power... to develop in the student the habit of 
independent judgment - of investigating 
statements and principles for oneself, and thus for 
oneself to discover their truth or falsity." 

Medallion 

The President's Medallion, worn at all official 
academic occasions, was first used for the 
inauguration of President John E. Johns in 1969. 
The medallion, cast in silver, is the university seal 
embraced by a wreath of laurel. 

The Stetson Colors 

The Stetson colors, green and white, were 
adopted about the same time as the seal. At the 
first commencement in 1893, the stage was 
decorated in Green and White. It is believed that 
the colors were chosen from the rich green of the 
orange trees and the pure white of the orange 
blossoms, a magnificent sight in the spring 
throughout Florida's great citrus belt. The color 
white represents purity, and green signifies growth. 

Academic Attire 

The traditional pageantry of an academic 
procession, such as the one which opens today's 
commencement exercises, is one of the impressive 
spectacles of our time. The array of handsome 
gowns and vividly colored hoods worn by the 
faculty and other officers of the university are the 
symbols of scholarly attainment. 

The earliest illustrations of gowns worn at 
Oxford University in England somewhat resemble 
cassocks worn by English teachers who found good 
use for the hood, or cowl, as protection against 
weather. The American system of academic 
heraldry indicates the level of the degree, the field 
of study in which it was earned, and the institution 
by which it was granted. 

The American mortarboard, derived from the 
soft Oxford cap, is black. Its tassel, for holders of 
the bachelor's and master's degrees, is usually 
black, although gold tassels may be worn by- 
holders of doctoral degrees and heads of 
institutions. The tassel is worn on the right side of 
the cap by undergraduates, on the left by holders 
of bachelor's and higher degrees.

It is the hood that provides academic regalia 
its color and offers the most information about its 
wearer. The silk lining of the hood bears the color, 
or colors, of the degree-granting college or 
university; its velvet facing reveals the color 
assigned to each area of study. The doctor's gown 
may bear velvet trimming on the front and sleeves- 
such as dark blue for Doctors of Philosophy. A few 
institutions, mostly overseas but some in this 
country, authorize the wearing of colored robes, 
departing from the traditional black and brightly 
displaying the official colors of the university.

Gonfalons 

Gonfalons are thought to have originated in 
Western Europe during the middle ages, when 
such banners displayed the personal coat of arms or 
ensign of a nobleman and were used as war flags 
hung from a horizontal bar and carried on a staff or 
suspended from a knight's lance. As early as the 
twelfth century, they were commonly used at state 
and religious ceremonies, and such pageantry finds 
a place today in the academic ceremonies of many 
colleges and universities. 

Stetson University proudly introduced 
gonfalons at the commencement ceremony on 
May 6, 2006. Prominently featuring the University 
Seal and the name of the respective college and 
school offering programs of study, Stetson's 
gonfalons are richly hued in Stetson's colors of 
green and white, and accented by a luminous gold. 
The stately Elizabeth Hall cupola graces each 
gonfalon as a symbol of our heritage. The student 



bearers (gonfaloniers) are outstanding members of 
the graduating class, who have been selected by 
their Deans for this honor. 

The University Seal 

The circular seal of Stetson University was 
first adopted between 1889 and 1891, about the 
time the name of the institution was changed from 
DeLand College to John B. Stetson University. It 
first appeared on a university catalog in 1891. The 
drawing was by an artist-in-residence and 
approved by President Forbes, Henry DeLand and 
John B. Stetson, as well as by the Board of 
Trustees. The Latin Motto, "Pro Deo et Veritate," 
is translated "For God and Truth." The Lamp, 
signifying the Light of Truth, rests on the Book of 
Wisdom. 

Mace 

Maces were originally war instruments used 
for organizing mayhem but from the 13 th century, 
have been carried by the sergeant-at-arms of 
educational and corporate entities. In the 
European and in the older American universities, 
the mace symbolizes the dignity and authority of 
the president and the Board of Trustees. 

Stetson's mace, designed by Episcopalian 
Canon Edward Nason West of the Cathedral 
Church of St. John the Divine, New York, was 
presented to President J. Ollie Edmunds in 1956. 

The mace is described here by the artist, 
Daniel Spencer, master gold and silversmith of 
William Comyns & Sons of London. 

"Stetson's mace is designed so that anyone 
could easily place the university's geographic 
location and chartering power. The palm buds 
from Florida's state seal form a base for the head of 
the mace. The legend around the bowl makes the 
particular institution's motive clear. The 
crenulations constitute what is known as a 
"canting device" since they are a play on the Latin 
word "stet" meaning "may it stand." The anchor, 
heart and cross - repeated twice in ornamenting 
them - are taken from the seal of the City of 
DeLand. From the top of the mace rises the shield 
of the university. The mace takes its basic shape 
from the mace of the Baptist Long Parliament, 
thus signifying the Baptist roots of the university." 

William Comyns & Sons was established in 
1 645 and examples of its craftwork can be found in 
St. Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.
