The Professions Graduation Ceremony 24 October 2014

Dr Geoffrey Fox Deputy Chancellor and Acting Chancellor Whether you have spent the last several years living and studying on campus or completing your degree part-time by distance education, I’m sure you will agree that your UNE experience has been a special one. It is this experience that has UNE consistently receiving the maximum five-star rating for overall graduate satisfaction in the Good Universities Guides. It is also this experience that forges lifelong friendships and connections with UNE that last decades and over several generations. You take away with you today a wonderful record of your academic achievement. I hope that as an alumnus, you will always be proud of, and an advocate for, your university, and I wish you every success in your future endeavours.

Dr Geoffrey Fox

Today you will graduate from the University of New England as an alumnus of Australia’s oldest regional university, a university with a distinguished tradition of excellence in teaching, learning and research. You are leaving with a highly respected degree and an experience that will stay with you for life. Your years at UNE have provided you with life-long skills. You will graduate with a professional qualification, the skill-set to achieve in the career of your choice, the ability to analyse and question the world around you, the capacity for truly independent thought and, I hope, a life-long love and commitment to learning. You have been given the opportunity to experience the rich cultural and social diversity that an academic environment provides. My wish for each and every UNE graduate is that you leave today with the skills to become an inspirational citizen of the world. I wish you every success in this most worthy of endeavours.

Professor Annabelle Duncan


The Graduation Ceremony: A Brief History The following is an adaptation of an Address given at a Graduation Ceremony at the University of Birmingham by Emeritus Professor R.H.C. Davis and reprinted in his book ‘From Alfred the Great to Stephen’ (Hambledon Press 1991), pp. 307‑309, and reproduced with kind permission of the author. The graduation ceremony is one of great antiquity. Its essential features have been the same since the 12th century when the first universities came into existence. Its necessary constituents are the Chancellor or his deputy, the academic staff, the graduands, and the public. When the Chancellor confers degrees, saying to the graduands: ‘By virtue of my authority as Chancellor, I admit you to the degree of ...’ those words are a translation of the Latin form used in the Middle Ages. Then, the Chancellor’s authority to confer degrees came from the church. The church had a monopoly of education, partly because it was the guardian of true doctrine, and partly because clerics were almost the only people who could read and write. As a result, the only person who could license a teacher was the bishop of a diocese until, under pressure of other business, he deputed the task to his chief-secretary or Chancellor. Academics might complain that the Chancellor was not as learned as they, but nonetheless the church would punish anyone who dared to teach without his licence. As learning spread, teachers wanted a licence to teach not just in one diocese, but everywhere, and the only person who could give them that was the pope. The Chancellor’s authority, then, came from the pope. But at the Reformation Henry VIII assumed for the Crown all the rights which had previously been the pope’s in England. That is why all subsequent universities in England have been created by royal charter. It is for this reason also that the Chancellor does not wear ecclesiastical robes, as would have been worn in the Middle Ages, but robes similar to those of the Lord Chancellor of England. The second group participating in the ceremony is the academic staff. In the 12th century they would all have been called ‘masters’ or MAs. At that date they were paid no salaries, but hired their own lecturerooms and charged their own fees. But they also formed themselves into a guild or union, which is what universitas originally meant. As in all guilds they were insistent that they, and only they, should determine who should be of their number, and since this involved saying who should be teachers, they soon found themselves in conflict with the Chancellor. In the 13th century they won a great victory when they persuaded the pope to decree that Chancellors were obliged to confer degrees on all those nominated by the masters. That is why the masters examine the candidates, why the dean, acting as their spokesman, reads out the names of those who are to receive degrees, and why the masters at this ceremony watch to see that the Chancellor or his Deputy does what is required of him. Thirdly, the graduands. The word ‘degree’ comes from the Latin gradus, which means ‘a step’. When students are admitted to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, they move one step up towards the mastership. When they are admitted to the degree of MA they climb another step and come up on a level with the masters, who then receive them into their guild or universitas. In the Middle Ages they would then have stayed on the dais, so that their old master could invest them with the symbols of office. But that was only part of the business. The new master had to deliver an inaugural lecture, entertain the whole guild of masters to dinner, and preside over disputations for forty days continuously. For that reason, taking one’s MA was called ‘inception’, or the beginning of one’s career as a master. The public is the fourth participant in this ceremony. The public also has a function, because the whole point of the proceedings is that they should be seen and heard by valid witnesses. The public hears the words of the Dean and the Chancellor, and sees the new graduates dressed in their respective gowns or robes. The gowns are derived from the everyday dress of the medieval clergy. In the Middle Ages they were not open in front but closed like a clergyman’s cassock. It was about 1500 that academics had the front opened up so as to display the fine clothes which they were wearing underneath. The hood was the normal medieval headwear, but it soon acquired a coloured lining. By the 17th century, if not earlier, these colours were strictly controlled, so that anyone could identify from the colour of a graduate’s hood, the university, and the degree. 2

The Stole The stole was introduced in 1991 as part of the academic dress for diplomates. Like the other elements of academic dress - the cap, the gown and the hood - the stole has evolved from the dress of the medieval clergy; indeed the stole was once part of the hood itself. In medieval times the hood was a garment of every day dress. Over the centuries it developed an appendage or tail known as a liripipe, which was used both for pulling the hood off the head and for wrapping round the throat with the hood worn on the head, both to keep the hood in place, and for warmth. It was during the 15th century that changing fashions dictated that the liripipe should be shortened or removed entirely from the hood to form a separate scarf or stole. The liripipe remains in stylised form today in the tail of academic hoods of this and many other universities. The stole has evolved along two paths: it remains as a separate academic article for certain awards at this University and other universities including Oxford, Cambridge and London, and although no longer in general use, vestiges of the stole remain in the form of the “lapel” on the front and the yoke at the back of all academic gowns of the Oxbridge design. The stoles worn by Fellows and diplomates of The University of New England are in the University’s official distinguishing colour of gold and those for Fellows are edged with green silk. Diploma stoles have coloured satin ribbons to identify the disciplinary area, arranged so as to identify the level of the award. Associate diplomas have a ribbon or bar running horizontally at chest level; other undergraduate diplomas have a single vertical ribbon; graduate diplomas have two vertical ribbons.

The Mace The mace is carried by the Esquire Bedell before the Chancellor as a symbol of the fact that the Chancellor represents the tradition of the University and that in him is vested the authority and good name of the University. The mace, together with its teak wood box, was presented to the University by Dr P A Wright, to mark the establishment of the University and the installation of the first Chancellor, the Right Honourable Sir Earle Page on August 4, 1955. The mace was designed and made by Gerald Benney of London under the general direction of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. The engraving on the mace was drawn by Gerald Benney and executed by T C F Wise, who was regarded as the finest engraver in Europe at the time. Prior to its dispatch to Australia, the mace was displayed at an exhibition of modern craftsmanship in gold and silver where it was regarded by competent British authorities as “the most beautiful Mace made in England in modern times”. While it combines in exact form all the characteristics of a mediaeval fighting mace, its design is modern and singularly appropriate to The University of New England. Some data about the mace material: sterling silver length: 1.2m weight: 2.92kg


The Coat of Arms: Explanatory Notes The shield bears three Tudor roses on a “chief gold” and in the first quarter of the shield appears the constellation of the Southern Cross. These emblems attempt to express the idea of the University carrying on the British University tradition under southern skies. This idea is also implied in the coronet encircling the helmet which stands on the shield. The finials of the coronet are alternately a sprig of wattle for Australia and an acorn for England. The crest of the helmet is a cresset of flame which the College of Heralds recommended as a more unusual and no less significant way of symbolising “learning”. The lions of England support the shield and a hunting horn is suspended by a green cord around the neck of each lion. The hunting horn is the heraldic badge of the Forster family, to which one of the founders of the University, the late T.R. Forster of Abington, Armidale, belonged. The College of Heralds attempted to acknowledge the title of the University, thereby implying that we have risen out of British tradition and British stock, but are developing in our own way in Australia. The motto is taken from “the Agricola” by the Roman historian Tacitus who, describing the early life of Agricola, speaks of his interest in philosophy, to which in his youthful enthusiasm he eagerly devoted himself. But, Tacitus implies, he avoided the extremes into which philosophical studies often led men at this time, when Stoicism tended to become identified with opposition to the Imperial system of government: retinuitque, quod est difficillimum, ex sapientia modum — “and he retained from his wisdom moderation — a most difficult achievement.” Modus is here used in the sense of moderation, balance, a temperament preventing one from being carried into extremes. This was a quality that Agricola displayed in practice throughout his life. In our motto the word is intended to express the same meaning, the quality of moderation reflecting a balanced judgment based on wisdom.

Distinguishing Colours For the purpose of academic dress for bachelor degrees and diplomas, the University has identified fifteen disciplinary areas each one of which has been awarded a distinguishing colour or colours. The areas and colours are: humanities - white

ethnic/area studies


black and post office box red

social studies


old rose

education - violet sciences - straw

mathematics and computing -

powder blue

visual and performing arts

spectrum green


engineering - copper brown

health sciences

administration and business -


peony red spectrum orange

economics - peacock blue law - ultramarine built environment - mace agriculture - dioptase

forestry, parks and wildlife



Colours are displayed in the linings of hoods, on the edges of stoles and on the facings and in the sleeve linings of gowns for doctorates. Hoods and gowns are black for degrees of bachelor and master whilst for doctorates they are scarlet.
