University of Queensland
The University of Queensland generally follows the Cambridge pattern for its Academic regalia, in terms of the pattern of its hoods and gowns. Previous to the current highly simplified colour coding system, a more complex course based colour system existed. These revisions took place during 1998 with the changes being visible in the graduating classes of 1999. With the merger of the Queensland College of Agriculture at Gatton in 1990, a series of other complications arose with the Gatton Council wearing robes unique to them. However with the disbanding of the Gatton council circa-2005 their dress regulations have passed into university history.

Famous quotes containing the words university of and/or university:
“The information links are like nerves that pervade and help to animate the human organism. The sensors and monitors are analogous to the human senses that put us in touch with the world. Data bases correspond to memory; the information processors perform the function of human reasoning and comprehension. Once the postmodern infrastructure is reasonably integrated, it will greatly exceed human intelligence in reach, acuity, capacity, and precision.”
—Albert Borgman, U.S. educator, author. Crossing the Postmodern Divide, ch. 4, University of Chicago Press (1992)
“I am not willing to be drawn further into the toils. I cannot accede to the acceptance of gifts upon terms which take the educational policy of the university out of the hands of the Trustees and Faculty and permit it to be determined by those who give money.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
