Academic Procession

Academic Procession

Academic ProcessionThe academic procession is a descendent of European religious processions, which began to include teaching faculties in the Middle Ages, when universities were closely associated with the medieval church.  The order used in academic processions has evolved through many years of practice at Plymouth State University. At the front of the line is the Marshal, our 2006 Distinguished Teaching Award recipient, Dr. Wendy J. Palmquist.  She is followed in the procession by President Steen and members of the platform party.  This group is followed by the faculty and then delegates from other institutions.
