A History ofEastern Washington UniversityIn 1882, the Benjamin P. Cheney Academy opened itsdoors to more than 200 enrolling students. A generouscontribution of 10,000 from a wealthy transportationindustrialist had at last fulfilled the dreams of Cheneycitizens for an institute of higher learning in theircommunity.The academy became the State Normal School atCheney in 1889, the same year in which Washington wasgiven its statehood. The school was proudly designated as aninstitution “for the purpose of instruction of persons, bothmale and female, in the art of teaching the various branchesthat pertain to a good common school.”By the time it became Eastern Washington College ofEducation in 1937, Eastern was already a fully accreditedfour-year degree-granting institution, offering majors innumerous subjects.The campus grew rapidly in size and program offeringsin the decades following World War II. In 1961, the namewas again changed, this time to Eastern Washington StateCollege. It was increasingly evident that the region neededprofessionals in many fields; in response, a wide rangeof undergraduate and graduate degree programs wereadded. Finally, in 1977, the name was changed to EasternWashington University by the state legislature.As a regional university, Eastern is charged with thespecial responsibility of meeting the undergraduate andgraduate educational needs of the region’s people.To that end, program areas have grown and beenredefined as the needs of the Inland Northwest have grownand changed. Master’s programs have been added to meetthe need for graduate-level education, and individualprograms and schools have increasingly been grantedaccreditation by their respective oversight organizations asthose programs and schools have grown and matured.Today, Eastern students represent nearly every statein the union and more than 40 foreign countries. Morethan 100 different academic majors are available, offeringstudents a wide variety of career-path options.Nearly 600 full-time and adjunct faculty teach on theCheney campus and at several locations throughout thestate. Three-quarters of Eastern’s full-time faculty membershold doctorate degrees. With a low student-to-facultyratio, Eastern continues to stress small classes, personalizedinstruction and individual attention.Perhaps even more significant than Eastern’s steadyadvancement during the past 135 years is the university’sexpanded regional role and its evolving goals, objectives andvision of its future.In the past decade, Eastern Washington University hasbecome a major force in the state and the Pacific Northwest,not only in the education of more than 12,000 studentseach year, but in the civic, cultural, scientific and economicdevelopment of the state and region.Board of TrusteesJames Murphy, ChairUriel Iñiguez, Vice ChairMichael FinleyJay J.

Adapted in form from theancient battle weapon used by knights, the ceremonial macesymbolized the authority of regal personages, city or shireruling bodies and chief officers of chartered institutions.Originally representing vested authority during all officialmeetings, it eventually came to be connected mainly withformal ceremonies. In academic institutions, this is usuallyin conjunction with an academic procession, where the maceis carried at the head of the line of march or just before theplatform party.The form of the ceremonial mace has remained fairlyconsistent over the centuries. Design often reflects the periodof creation, especially in the elaboration of ornamentation.Gold, silver and dark wood are traditional materials.Eastern’s mace, commissioned as a gift during thecentennial year to the university by former and presentmembers of the EWU Board of Trustees, was created byartist-craftsman Clifford Gaynard after a region-wide designcompetition. Its planished silver head in flowing cuplikeform carries the university seal. The dark rosewood shaft withupper and medial gold-plated bosses is gently curved into theterminal silver cap at the bottom.Although the modern design departs from the traditionalstraight and elaborately ornamented pattern, it retains a fulleffect of balance, dignity and decorum, while capturing theflowing lines typical of the eastern Washington landscape.A permanent display case for the Eastern WashingtonUniversity mace is located in the Office of the President.
Academic RegaliaThe regalia worn for formal academic ceremonies suchas commencements are patterned after the gowns andhoods worn regularly in the Middle Ages by scholars forwarmth in unheated buildings and as distinguishing dressdenoting their place in society.A great variety of designs and colors developed overthe years in the costumes worn at different universities.Since 1895 in the United States, a uniform intercollegiatecode of style and colors has been adhered to by mostinstitutions.In accordance with this code, most academic gownsare black, although some universities permit othersolid colors. Occasionally, the robe color may indicatea professional distinction, such as deep purple for lawor scarlet for ecclesiastical honors. Adaptations of theacademic costume for high schools have sometimes usedcolors other than black for purely decorative purposes.Sometimes a distinguishing device on the robe or capindicates an individual honor or a special occasion.The baccalaureate gown is of simple cut with full,somewhat pointed sleeves. The front is closed and oftenno hood is worn with this gown. The mortar board headcovering originated in ancient Greece, symbolizing thecommitment of the scholar to a life of building. It haseither a plain black tassel or one of a color indicating thesubject area of the degree. The custom of shifting thecap’s tassel from right to left at the time of awarding thedegree is used in lieu of investing each candidate with thebachelor’s hood.The master’s gown is similar to the bachelor’s gown,except that the sleeves are fuller, cut square with a halfcircle at the bottom and sometimes worn with the armsthrough a horizontal slit at elbow level.The doctoral robe is ampler in cut with a full bellshaped sleeve, velvet panel edging in the front and threevelvet stripes on each sleeve. The velvet trim may be blackor in the color appropriate to the degree. The mortarboard tassel for the doctorate is gold. Some Americanand many foreign universities use cap forms other thanthe mortar board, ranging from a soft velvet beret tomore elaborate fringed styles, each of which has its ownhistorical tradition.Hoods worn over the gowns have a velvet edging,usually in a color indicating the specific degree and alining which is partially turned out to show the colors ofthe college or university which granted the degree.Some of the colors used for tassels andvelvet panels to designate the degree are:Arts and Letters WhiteBusiness DrabDentistry LilacEconomics CopperEducation Light BlueEngineering OrangeFine Arts, Architectureand Urban and Regional Planning BrownJournalism CrimsonLaw PurpleLibrary Science LemonMusic PinkNursing ApricotPhilosophy Dark BluePhysical Education Sage GreenPhysical Therapy TealPublic Administration Peacock BluePublic Health Salmon PinkSciences Golden YellowSocial Work CitronSpeech Silver GrayTheology Scarlet15
