Academic Dress of Universities in Queensland, Australia - Griffith University

Griffith University

Three-quarter length academic gowns, open down the front, are the standard academic dress, as is a badge of the Griffith University logo. For those who graduate from a Certificate or an Advanced Certificate program, this is full academic dress; for those who graduate from an Associate Diploma or a Diploma program, a black Cambridge hood, with white silk edging, is added to the gown. No trencher is worn for non-degree graduates.

Those graduating from a Bachelor degree (with or without honours) or a Graduate Certificate program wear the gown, the badge, the black Cambridge hood with white silk edging, and also wear the trencher. Masters degree graduates wear all of the aforementioned, except that the gown is faced, on both sides of the opening, with 10 cm of white silk.

Doctoral degree graduates have significant variations, depending on the field or reason that the degree is awarded. Doctors of Philosophy wear the black gown, with 10 cm red silk facing on either side and within the sleeves, a black hood with red edging, and a black velvet Tudor bonnet with red braiding. Other doctorate graduates wear a red gown, with the inside of the sleeves lined in white, and a red Cambridge hood with white silk edging, along with the black Tudor bonnet with matching braiding. Doctors of the University essentially receive the inverse of the Ph.D. attire, wearing a red gown, with black facing and sleeve lining, but still with a black Tudor bonnet with red braiding.

Famous quotes containing the words university and/or griffith:

    The great problem of American life [is] the riddle of authority: the difficulty of finding a way, within a liberal and individualistic social order, of living in harmonious and consecrated submission to something larger than oneself.... A yearning for self-transcendence and submission to authority [is] as deeply rooted as the lure of individual liberation.
    Wilfred M. McClay, educator, author. The Masterless: Self and Society in Modern America, p. 4, University of North Carolina Press (1994)
