PhD Recognition Ceremony

The Doctoral Hooding Ceremony recognizes the culmination of graduate studies and the transition from student to colleague. The hood is reserved for those individuals who have earned advanced academic degrees. The hood is a special part of the academic regalia denoting scholarly and professional achievement. Hoods are lined with the official colors of the University conferring the degree, and are edged and bound with velvet of the color appropriate to the degree.
