Academic Dress Of The University Of Warwick

The academic and official dress of the University of Warwick dates originally from the mid-1960s, shortly after the university's foundation.

The official academic dress for officers and members of the University of Warwick is as follows.

    Any affectation whatsoever in dress implies, in my mind, a flaw in the understanding.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The poker player learns that sometimes both science and common sense are wrong; that the bumblebee can fly; that, perhaps, one should never trust an expert; that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of by those with an academic bent.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)
