MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR 


Dear Graduates and Families: 

Welcome to Commencement 2010.1 extend warm congratulations to our graduates and 
a welcome to the ranks of Tar Heel alumni. To all the family members and friends who 
supported you, I offer thanks on behalf of Carolina’s faculty and staff. 

Earning a university degree is for optimists only. Especially in uncertain economic 
times like ours, it takes a belief in the future and confidence in your own ability to make 
that future better — for you, your family, your community and the world. 

I am confident in all of you. I know that you will go out into the world and make a 
difference, as countless other Tar Heels have done before you. 

Carolina and Chapel Hill will be here for you. No matter where you go, you can count 
on our love and support. Now go out and change the world. 

Hark the sound!

ALMA MATER 

The words of “Hark the Sound,” UNC-Chapel Hill’s alma mater, 
were written in 1897 by William Starr Myers, a graduating senior. 
The Glee Club director asked Myers to put words to the tune 
“Amici,” and the song was first performed on June 2, 1897, as part 
of the Glee Club’s Commencement performance in Gerrard Hall. 

Soon the song was almost forgotten. When a University quartet 
tried a few years later to remember the words, they could recollect 
only the first verse and the chorus of Myers’ original version. 

Two members of the quartet, Charles S. Mangum and Charles T. 
Woollen, added two verses to the one they remembered. Mangum 
later became a professor in the School of Medicine, and Woollen 
worked as the University’s business manager and comptroller. 

HARK THE SOUND 

Hark, the sound of Tar Heel voices 
Ringing clear and true, 

Singing Carolina’s praises, 

Shouting N.C.U.! 

Hail to the brightest star of all! 

Clear its radiance shine! 

Carolina, priceless gem, 

Receive all praises thine. 


FOR YOUR INFORMATION 


The Doctoral Hooding ceremony on Saturday will be captioned. For the Commencement ceremony in Kenan Stadium on 
Sunday, there will be a sign language interpreter as well as captioning. A student marshal or Disability Services staff member 
can advise people with hearing impairments about seating from which to view the interpreter. 

This Commencement program is printed prior to administering final examinations. Therefore, including degree candidates’ 
names in this program does not represent certification that candidates have satisfactorily completed degree requirements. 

Diplomas for bachelor’s, master of science and master of arts degrees will be printed after Commencement and mailed to 
graduates. Graduates with professional, doctoral or master’s degrees that contain an area of study in the degree, such as Master 
of Accounting, may receive their diplomas in a special departmental or school ceremony. Or, they may pick up a diploma from 
the Office of the Registrar in the Student and Academic Services Building from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Sunday. Diplomas 
will remain available in the Registrar’s Office for two weeks following Commencement, after which time they will be mailed.

HOLDEN THORP 

Chancellor 

At Carolina, Holden Thorp has been an undergraduate 
student, a chemistry professor, a planetarium director, 
an inventor and an entrepreneur, as well as a dean. 

He graduated with honors, won teaching awards, 
led a powerhouse academic department, developed 
technology for electronic DNA chips, founded spinoff 
companies and succeeded as an administrator. 

Now, as the 10th chancellor, Thorp is drawing 
from all of those experiences in leading Carolina 
among the ranks of the great research universities in 
the United States and around the world. 

A North Carolina native, Thorp grew up in 
Fayetteville in a family steeped in Carolina traditions 
dating to the 1800s. His father, Herb, used to sing 
the alma mater, “Hark the Sound,” at bedtime. When 
it was time to graduate from Terry Sanford High 
School, there was only one school on Thorp’s college 
application list—UNC. He earned a bachelor of 
science degree with honors in 1986. 

Attending a world-class research university— 
where research and teaching are done by the same 
people —gave Thorp opportunities to work in 
chemistry labs alongside some of Carolina’s very best 
faculty. Those experiences inspired him to become 
a college professor. He pursued that dream at the 
California Institute of Technology, where he earned a 
doctorate in chemistry in 1989, and at Yale University 
for postgraduate work. After a year teaching at North 
Carolina State University, he came back to UNC’s 
chemistry department in 1993. 

Because he has lived it from both sides of the 
classroom, Thorp is passionate about the under¬ 
graduate experience. “Carolina is perfectly suited to 
leverage our students’ interests in the great problems 
facing our world, to enhance their academic success 
and position them to lead us,” he says. “Our greatest 
contributions are the UNC alumni who go on to be 
leaders in communities across North Carolina.” 



Thorp says the University’s future depends on 
aspiring to global academic excellence and serving 
the needs of North Carolina’s students and people. 
“We’re the university of both—and: Both academic 
prominence and a commitment to our state.” 

Before becoming chancellor on July 1, 2008, 

Thorp served for a year as dean of the College of Arts 
and Sciences. He chaired the chemistry department, 
led a $17 million fundraising effort for the Carolina 
Physical Science Complex as faculty director, 
and spent four years as director of the Morehead 
Planetarium and Science Center. 

Nationally, Thorp serves on the Associations 
Patent Reform Task Force, an advisory body to six 
associations representing U.S. higher education 
in a Congressional effort to reform patent law. 

He has published 130 scholarly articles on the 
electronic properties of DNA and RNA. He invented 
technology for electronic DNA chips that led to 19 
issued or pending U.S. patents. 

Although Thorp has lived mostly in North 
Carolina, he conducted a state tour during part of his 
first year as chancellor to show his personal commit¬ 
ment to the University’s mission of serving the state. 
Stops included visits with high school students, univer¬ 
sity students, alumni and all UNC system chancellors. 

An accomplished musician who plays jazz bass 
and keyboard, Thorp is married to Patti Worden 
Thorp, a Hope Mills native and UNC-Greensboro 
graduate. Their children are John and Emma.

her contributions to the advancement of women 
in management and the profession. In May 2003, 
the YWCA of Princeton honored Gitenstein at its 
Tribute to Women, in recognition of her outstanding 
achievements, contributions to the community, 
and model character. The KidsBridge Childrens 
Museum, which is dedicated to tolerance education, 
honored Gitenstein in October 2007 with its first

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL 


COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 

John Grisham 


john grisham, a native of Jonesboro, Arkansas, 
is the author of 23 books including numerous legal 
thrillers. After receiving a bachelor of science in 
accounting at Mississippi State University in 1977, 
Grisham went on to earn a juris doctor from the 
University of Mississippi’s law school in 1981. 

He practiced law for nearly a decade in Southaven, 
Mississippi, specializing in criminal defense and 
personal injury litigation. In 1983, he was elected 
to the Mississippi House of Representatives and 
served until 1990. 

Since publishing his first legal thriller, “A Time 
to Kill,” in 1988, Grisham has written one novel 
a year, and all of them have become international 
bestsellers. Nine of his books have been turned into 
movies, along with an original screenplay. “The 
Innocent Man” (2006) marked his first foray into 
nonfiction, and “Ford County” (2010) was his first 
short story collection. 

Grisham’s ties to Carolina are substantial. He 
spoke at two North Carolina Literary Festivals 
held on the UNC campus, in 1998 and in 2009. His 
daughter, Shea, graduated from Carolina in 2008 



with a degree in elementary education and teaches 
in Raleigh. 

When he’s not writing, Grisham devotes time 
to charitable causes, including most recently his 
Rebuild the Coast Fund, which raised $8.8 million 
for Gulf Coast relief in the wake of Hurricane 
Katrina. He also keeps up with his greatest passion 
— baseball — serving as a commissioner for his local 
Little League.

HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 

Paul Joseph Rizzo 

DOCTOR OF LAWS 


PAUL Rizzo is chair emeritus of Franklin Street 
Partners, a private investment management firm and 
trust company located in Chapel Hill. Coach Carl 
Snavely recruited Rizzo, a native of Clinton, New 
York, to Cornell on a football scholarship. When 
Snavely moved to Carolina in 1945, Rizzo followed. 

After a tour of duty in the United States Army, 
Rizzo lettered in football in four seasons on the 
legendary Carolina team that included Charlie 
Justice and Art Weiner, and was inducted into the 
Order of the Golden Fleece. He is remembered 
for scoring twice in the fourth quarter of the 1950 
Cotton Bowl against Rice University, thereby 
preventing a shutout. 

After graduating with a degree in accounting, 
Rizzo embarked on a business career that 
culminated in the position of vice chair of the board 
and chief financial officer of IBM. One day in 1987, 
after having reached IBM’s mandatory retirement 
age of 60, Rizzo happened to be on a flight to Japan 
with Richard Jenrette, then a member of Carolina’s 
Board of Trustees. Jenrette encouraged him to apply 
for the post of dean of the Kenan-Flagler Business 
School. Chancellor Christopher Fordham chose 
Rizzo for the job in a bold move that reached into 
the business community for an academic dean who 
had no previous experience in higher education 
leadership. Rizzo accepted the challenge with a goal 
of strengthening ties to North Carolina’s business 
community and preparing Carolina’s graduates for 
the increasing globalization of business. 

Rizzo’s administration initiated an era of 
phenomenal growth in Kenan-Flagler. He began 
with an executive education program that more 
than quadrupled in funding during his tenure. 

He energized the trustees and Kenan-Flagler’s 
supporters by insisting that Carolina could and 



should compete with the best business schools 
in the nation. He pushed for a new building, 
advocated higher tuition for graduate students 
that would be retained by Kenan-Flagler to be 
used for building up its executive program, and 
de-emphasized the undergraduate program. At 
the end of his five-year term as dean, Rizzo had 
raised the Kenan-Flagler Business School to 
national stature. 

His leadership roles at Carolina include 
membership on the Board of Visitors, the UNC 
Health Care System Board of Directors, the 
Educational Foundation Executive Committee and 
the UNC Board of Governors. Kenan-Flagler’s 
Paul J. Rizzo Conference Center at Meadowmont 
is named in his honor. Rizzo’s philanthropic work 
includes a leadership role in the Carolina First 
Campaign. He has been honored with the 1994 
William Richardson Davie Award and the General 
Alumni Association’s Distinguished Service Medal.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL I-IILL 


HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 

Eugene Leslie Roberts Jr. 

DOCTOR OF LAWS 


gene Roberts is known by everyone in the news 
business as a hard-nosed journalist who in an era of 
great editors took second place to none. He came by 
his calling naturally and he pursued it with integrity 
and professional genius for more than half a century. 

He began his lifelong love affair with journalism 
by helping with the Goldsboro Herald, a weekly 
paper published by his father. After graduating from 
Carolina with a B.A. in journalism (1954), Roberts 
worked for the Goldsboro News-Argus, where he 
wrote a farm column titled “Rambling in Rural 
Wayne.” His readers enjoyed stories about things 
like who made the best watermelon rind pickles or a 
sweet potato that looked like Charles DeGaulle. After 
writing for the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot, the Raleigh 
News & Observer, and the Detroit Free Press, Roberts 
joined the staff of the New York Times. There, he 
became one of the first people to report in depth on 
how the civil rights revolution was affecting the lives 
of ordinary people. Similarly, his coverage of the 
Battle of Hue in Vietnam told the story of ordinary 
soldiers in desperate straits. 

Roberts became national editor of the Times in 
1969, often a stepping-stone to the top job, but in 
1972, he took a chance on the struggling Philadelphia 
Inquirer. Serving as executive editor of the Inquirer 
for 18 years, Roberts turned what had been a rag 
wrung dry by its much larger rival, the Philadelphia 
Bulletin, into a top 10 newspaper. During his tenure, 
the Inquirer won 17 Pulitzer Prizes, including two 
gold medals for public service. He won the circulation 
war with the Bulletin and propelled the Inquirer to 
the top by expanding news coverage, adding national 
reporters and opening foreign bureaus. 

Upon leaving the Inquirer, Roberts accepted 
an appointment as professor of journalism at the 



University of Maryland’s College of Journalism, 
teaching courses on writing complex stories, the 
press and the civil rights movement, and newsroom 
management. In 1994, Roberts returned to the New 
York Times to guide the paper’s move to become 
a national newspaper in fact as well as name. He 
retired in 1997 to return to his faculty position at the 
University of Maryland. 

In 1990, the staff of the Philadelphia Inquirer 
and Knight-Ridder endowed the Eugene L. Roberts 
Prize in Carolina’s School of Journalism and Mass 
Communication. The annual award encourages 
aspiring journalists to write the kind of in-depth 
stories that exemplify Roberts’ career. In the 
words of the award criteria, a prize-winning story 
idea is “one that is dedicated to the untold event 
that oozes instead of breaks; to the story that 
reveals, not repeats.” 

In 2006, Roberts and his co-author Hank 
Klibanoff won a Pulitzer Prize for “The Race 
Beat: The Press, the Civil Rights Struggle, and 
the Awakening of a Nation,” hailed as a highly 
important study of how journalists covered the civil 
rights movement. 

Roberts is married to Susan Jane McLamb, 
Carolina Class of 1956, whom he met while he was 
a student here. They have four daughters and two 
grandchildren, and spend as much time as they can at 
their summer home in Bath, North Carolina, where 
groceries are delivered by rowboat.

HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 

Fred Colson Robinson 

DOCTOR OF HUMANE LETTERS 


fred robinson is the Douglas Tracy Smith 
Professor of English Emeritus at Yale University. He is 
the foremost North American scholar of the earliest 
recorded period of English language and literature. 

Robinson earned his Ph.D. in English and 
comparative linguistics from Carolina in 1961, 
under the tutelage of Professor Norman Eliason. 

His colleagues at Carolina agree that he is the 
most distinguished living alumnus of our graduate 
program in English. Within two decades of 
completing his doctorate, Robinson had held faculty 
appointments at Stanford, Cornell and Yale, and had 
been elected a fellow of the American Academy of 
Arts and Sciences as well as a fellow of the Medieval 
Academy of America. Over the course of his career, 
Robinson has been a philologist in its original 
sense — a lover of words. His ability to bring to 
life old words from the past, in turn, underlies his 
criticism of literature in English in all periods. His 
reputation is based not just on his large output of 
scholarly books and articles, but more so on the 
quality and originality of the research they contain. 
Almost everything he has written has contributed 
new knowledge and perspectives to the field. His 
scholarship ranges from editions of Old English 
works, a major literary reappraisal of “Beowulf,” 
philological notes and an introductory grammar 
for students of Old English. 

All these endeavors have been informed by 
meticulous scholarship, judicious interpretative 
skills and a broad humanistic approach to Old 
English language and literature. His contributions 
to scholarship have been recognized by fellowships 
from the American Council of Learned Societies, 
the Guggenheim Foundation, the Haskins Medal 
of the Medieval Academy of America and the 
Sir Israel Gollancz Prize of the British Academy. 
Robinsons excellence as a teacher won for him 



Yale University’s William Clyde DeVane Medal in 
undergraduate teaching and is further evidenced by 
the distinguished company of scholars who pursued 
graduate studies under his direction. Two of them— 
Peter Baker, now on the faculty of the University 
of Virginia, and the late Nicholas Howe, of the 
University of California at Berkeley — edited a book 
of essays in Robinson’s honor in 1998. Its title, “Words 
and Work,” aptly echoes a passage in “Beowulf” 
explaining that one must judge others both by their 
words and by their works. In the preface the editors 
wrote, “His achievements as a scholar emanate from 
his love of words as the resonant constituents of 
language and his love of works as the larger forms 
into which words cohere.” 

Robinson’s service to the world of scholarship 
includes serving as president of the Medieval 
Academy of America, founding member of the 
advisory board of the International Society of 
Anglo-Saxonists, chief editor of the journal 
Anglistica and founding editorial board member 
of Anglo-Saxon England. 

Robinson’s wife, Helen Wild Robinson, is also 
a Carolina alumna, having received her M.A. degree 
here in 1957. They have a son, a daughter and 
three grandchildren.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL 


HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 

Patricia Tinimons— Goodson 

DOCTOR OF LAWS 


Patricia timmons-goodson is an Associate 
Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. A 
native of Florence, South Carolina, she is one of 
six children born to U.S. Army Airborne Ranger 
Edward Timmons and his wife, Beulah. 

Timmons-Goodson received her B.A. and 
J.D. degrees from Carolina in 1976 and 1979, 
respectively. She began her legal career as a 
prosecutor in the office of the Cumberland County 
District Attorney. In 1984, at the age of only 29, she 
was appointed District Court Judge, a position she 
held for 13 years until she was elevated to the North 
Carolina Court of Appeals in 1997. 

Timmons-Goodson retired from the Court of 
Appeals in 2005, thinking that she had completed 
her service to North Carolina, but within only a 
few months Governor Michael Easley asked her to 
accept appointment to the North Carolina Supreme 
Court. She is the first African American woman to 
serve as a judge in her home county of Cumberland, 
the first to be elected to any state appellate court 
and the first to serve on North Carolina’s highest 
court. At Timmons-Goodson’s induction ceremony, 
Chief Justice Sarah Parker pointed out that this was 
the first time that the court had two women among 
its seven justices. 



As a Carolina undergraduate, Timmons- 
Goodson was inducted into the Order of the 
Valkyries and the Order of the Old Well in 
recognition of her outstanding leadership abilities. 
She is a member of the Central Selection Committee 
for the Morehead-Cain Scholarships and has 
served on the Board of Directors of the General 
Alumni Association. On University Day 2008, 
she administered the oath of office to Carolina’s 
10th Chancellor, Holden Thorp. Timmons- 
Goodson’s many honors and awards include the 
2007 William R. Davie Award, the General Alumni 
Association’s Distinguished Young Alumna Award, 
the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, and honorary 
degrees from Johnson C. Smith University and St. 
Augustine’s College. 

She is married to Dr. Ernest Goodson, Class of 
1976 and a 1979 graduate of Carolina’s School of 
Dentistry. They are the parents of two sons, Ernest 
and Aaron.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL 


COMMENCEMENT SYMBOLS AND TRADITIONS 


THE CHANCELLOR’S MEDAL 

The chancellor’s medal, an emblem of the office of chancellor, is 
worn during the University’s ceremonial occasions. The sterling 
silver disk, which is three inches in diameter and seven ounces 
Troy weight, was given to the University by John Sanders, professor 
emeritus and former director of the UNC Institute of Government, 
and his wife, Ann Beal Sanders. Modeled by sculptor Pete Hinton 
and bearing the University seal, it was first worn by Chancellor Paul 
Hardin during the 1994 University Day convocation. 

THE BICENTENNIAL STAFF 

The faculty marshal carries the bicentennial staff while leading 
the faculty processional on ceremonial occasions such as 
commencement and University Day. The staff, commissioned 
for the University’s 1993 bicentennial celebration by John Sanders, 
professor emeritus and former director of the UNC Institute of 
Government, and his wife, Ann Beal Sanders, was modeled by 
sculptor Pete Hinton. It consists of a sterling silver three-inch-high 
replica of the Old Well mounted on a turned and tapered oak shaft. 
The shaft was made from timber salvaged from the 1822 section of 
Old West residence hall during its 1991-1993 renovation. 

THE UNIVERSITY SEAL 

The University seal typically appears on diplomas and graduation 
materials, grade transcripts and documents that indicate 
accomplishment in or on behalf of the University. 

The first seal of the 
University of North Carolina, 
designed in 1790, showed 
the face of Apollo and his 
emblem, the rising sun, 
used to symbolize the dawn 
of higher education in the 
state. The words “SIGUL 
UNIVERSITAT CAROL 
SEPTENT” (Seal of the 
University of North Carolina) 
surrounded the drawing. 

A modification in 1895 added lighted torches of learning 
beside Apollo’s profile. Two years later another alteration replaced 
Apollo’s head with a shield on which the words Lux (light) and 
Libertas (liberty), separated by a white band running from the 
upper right to the lower left of the shield, appeared. 

In the 1940s, some observers mistakenly claimed the white 
stripe on the shield was a bend sinister, a heraldic code that was 
demeaning. In truth, the stripe was a bar sinister and merely 


denoted a second or later son. Still, the direction of the stripe was 
reversed, removing any question of stigma. 

Today’s seal is the same as the 1897 version, except the stripe 
runs from the upper left to the lower right. 

DIPLOMAS 

The University’s first graduating class in 1798 included Hinton James, 
the first student to enroll. Seven men received the first documents 
that by today’s standards can be called UNC-Chapel Hill diplomas. 
Having passed examinations in the sciences and the English language, 
Adam Alexander Springs earned a Bachelor of the Liberal Arts 
degree on July 10, 1798. His diploma, signed by the trustees of the 
University, is in the Southern Historical Collection in Wilson Library. 

Modern-day Carolina diplomas are signed by the president of 
the UNC system, which consists of 17 constituent institutions; 
the chair of the UNC system’s Board of Governors; the chair of the 
UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees; the chancellor of UNC-Chapel 
Hill; and the dean of the UNC-Chapel Hill school or college that 
administers the student’s degree. 

UNIVERSITY COLORS 

As symbols of unity among Carolina students, alumni and fans, the 
school colors of light blue and white were first used around 1800 
to distinguish between members of the Dialectic and Philanthropic 
Literary Societies. Throughout the 19th century, students were 
required to be members of either the Di or the Phi. The Di’s color 
was light blue, and the Phi’s was white. 

At University commencements, balls and other social events, 
the student officials, managers and marshals wore the color of 
their society, blue or white. Because the chief marshal or chief ball 
manager represented the whole student body, not just his society, 
he wore both colors. 

When the University fielded its first intercollegiate athletic 
teams in 1888, the question of what colors to wear had already been 
answered. Light blue and white had come to symbolize membership 
in the University, not in a single society. 

ACADEMIC DRESS 

The following information, based in part on An Academic Costume 
Code and Ceremony Guide (published by the American Council 
on Education), may be helpful in identifying academic attire worn 
during UNC’s commencement exercises. 

degree candidates’ regalia. The University’s Carolina 
blue bachelor’s gown is untrimmed and has no hood. The black 
master’s gown, also untrimmed, has a hood and an oblong sleeve, 
open at the wrist, that hangs nearly to the ground; the back part of 



Two Thousand Ten Commencement I 1 7 


its oblong shape is square cut and the arc in the front is cut away. 

The hooded doctoral gown features three bars across each sleeve. 

In 1999, the Faculty Council authorized a special doctoral gown for 
Carolina graduates. It is Carolina blue, with facings and crossbars of 
dark blue outlined in white piping. The facings bear the shield of the 
University supported by the torches of learning. 

The hoods of master’s and doctoral degree candidates vary in 
color according to the field of study (see list below). 

This commencement weekend, some students will be wearing 
special cords. Gold cords will be worn by Honors graduates, and 
blue and white cords will be worn by Public Service Scholars. 

faculty regalia. Faculty wear the regalia of the institution that 
conferred their highest degree. The doctoral gowns are usually faced 
with black velvet, although the color of the velvet may vary according 
to the field of study. Hoods, which differ in length according to the 
level of the degree held, are lined with official colors of the university 
or college that conferred the degree, usually with one color forming 
a chevron pattern over the other. Some colors you will see on faculty 
and administrators’ robes are, for example, the crimson of Harvard, 
the maroon of Chicago, the orange and black of Princeton, the dark 
blue of Yale, and the light blue and white of North Carolina. 

Like the hoods of master’s and doctoral degree candidates, 
faculty hoods are edged and bound with velvet in the color 
appropriate to the field of study. The colors in the hoods and gowns 
of faculty and administrators represent the following fields in 
which degrees were taken: 


apricot: Nursing 
brown: Fine Arts 
citron: Social Work 
crimson: Journalism 
dark blue: Philosophy 
golden yellow: Science 
green: Medicine 
lemon yellow: Library 
Science 

light blue: Education 
LILAC: Dentistry 
olive green: Pharmacy 
orange: Engineering 


peacock blue: Public 
Administration 
pink: Music 
purple: Law 
sage green: Physical 
Education 

salmon pink: Public Health 
scarlet: Theology 

YELLOW BROWN: 

Commerce, Business, 
Accountancy 
white: Arts, Letters, 
Humanities 


CONFERRING OF THE HOOD, 

TURNING OF THE TASSEL 

At a certain point in a commencement ceremony, a gesture or 
action symbolically indicates that the degree has been conferred. 
For doctoral degree candidates, that symbolic action is called the 
“hooding.” During Saturday’s hooding ceremony, doctoral degree 
candidates will be conferred with a hood by the provost and either 
their advisor or dissertation committee chair. For undergraduates, 



the gesture is the turning of the tassel. At the beginning of the 
main commencement ceremony on Sunday, undergraduate degree 
candidates will wear their tassels on the right side of the mortarboard 
(cap). Then, at the moment when their degrees are awarded, they will 
move them to the left side. Upon turning the tassel or being hooded, 
a student transitions from degree candidate to graduate. 

MUSIC 

Graduates, families and friends attending commencement weekend 
will have several opportunities to hear the University’s beloved 
“Hark the Sound” and James Taylor’s classic “Carolina in My 
Mind.” These songs evoke the feelings of loyalty and friendship 
that students, alumni and true blue Tar Heels everywhere have 
for the University. But the orchestral marches that accompany the 
commencement processionals are equally memorable for their 
power and splendor. They are truly fitting musical celebrations 
of the talent and achievements of UNC-Chapel Hill’s visiting 
dignitaries, faculty and graduates. 

During Saturday’s doctoral hooding ceremony and Sunday’s main 
commencement ceremony, members of the academic processional 
will be welcomed by the fanfare brass, woodwinds and drums of 
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Procession of the Nobles” and Richard 
Strauss’ “Konigsmarsch.” Rimsky-Korsakov wrote his majestic march 
to open the second act of the opera-ballet “Mlada,” which premiered 
in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 1892. Strauss premiered the flourishing 
“Konigsmarsch” at a palace concert in Berlin in 1907. 

The new graduates will exit the ceremonies while hearing familiar 
Carolina melodies in “Tar Heel Rhapsody,” a composition written 
specifically for the University that features its school songs.

At the heart of the campus stands 
the visual symbol of the University 
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For 
many years the Old Well served as 
the sole water supply for Old East and 
Old West dormitories. In 1897, the 
well was given its present decorative 
form at the direction of President 
Edwin A. Alderman, who described 
his beautification project as largely 
derived from the Temple of Love in 
the Garden of Versailles. In 1954, 
the well was given added beauty with 
brick walks, plantings and benches. 
Students can bring good luck with a 
drink from the Old Well on the first 
day of classes.

The Morehead-Patterson Memorial Bell 
Tower was given to the University in 1931 
by John Motley Morehead III and Rufus 
Lenoir Patterson. Its 14-bell carillon rings 
both manually and electronically to call 
students to class, provide twilight music 
and serenade the dispersing crowd after 
football games. Rising 172 feet, the tower is 
surrounded by a hedge and lawn designed 
by William C. Coker, botany professor and 
creator of the campus Arboretum.

DEGREES WITH DISTINCTION 

To graduate with distinction or with highest distinction, undergraduate students must 
have completed at least 45 academic hours at UNC-Chapel Hill and have an overall grade 
point average of at least 3.5 or 3.8, respectively. 

UNDERGRADUATE HONORS PROGRAM 

The Honors Program offers exceptionally well-qualified first-year students, sophomores 
and juniors an opportunity to take part of their general education curriculum in special 
honors seminars and honors sections. Honors seminars are special topics courses, limited 
in enrollment to 15 students and taught by outstanding members of the University fac¬ 
ulty. Honors sections of regular departmental course offerings are also limited in enroll¬ 
ment and are taught by permanent members of the University faculty. Honors seminars 
and sections emphasize critical reading, class discussion and expository writing. 

Senior departmental honors programs are provided for students who have demonstrated 
a very high level of scholastic ability and achievement and who desire to pursue an intensive, 
individualized program of study in their major discipline. Honors studies ordinarily consist 
of one or more of the following: the preparation of an honors thesis or essay, an indepen¬ 
dent research or reading program, an artistic performance or exhibition, or the completion 
of advanced course work in the major not normally required of students in that major. It 
is on the basis of participation in senior honors that a student may be graduated from the 
University “with Honors” or “with Highest Honors.”

MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR 


Dear graduates and families: 

Welcome to December 2010 Commencement. Congratulations and welcome to the ranks of 
Tar Heel alumni. To all the family members and friends who supported you, I offer thanks 
on behalf of Carolina’s faculty and staff. 

You are graduating into a climate of economic uncertainty. However, whether you are 
heading for a job, further studies or something in between, you can be confident that your 
Carolina education has prepared you to tackle anything. 

I am confident in all of you. We’ve watched as you met challenges with enthusiasm, 
encountered adversity with imagination and helped each other with compassion. I know 
that you will go out into the world and make a difference, as countless other Tar Heels have 
done before you. 

Carolina and Chapel Hill are here for you, and we hope you come back to visit now and 
then. No matter where you go, you can count on our love and support. Now go out and 
change the world. 

Hark the sound!

ALMA MATER 

The words of “Hark the Sound,” UNC-Chapel Hill’s alma mater, 
were written in 1897 by William Starr Myers, a graduating senior. 
The Glee Club director asked Myers to put words to the tune 
“Amici,” and the song was first performed on June 2,1897, as part of 
the Glee Club’s Commencement performance in Gerrard Hall. 

Soon the song was almost forgotten. When a University quartet 
tried a few years later to remember the words, they could recol¬ 
lect only the first verse and the chorus of Myers’ original version. 
Two members of the quartet, Charles S. Mangum and Charles T. 
Woollen, added two verses to the one they remembered. Mangum 
later became a professor in the School of Medicine, and Woollen 
worked as the University’s business manager and comptroller. 

HARK THE SOUND 

Hark, the sound of Tar Heel voices 
Ringing clear and true, 

Singing Carolina’s praises, 

Shouting N.C.U.! 

Hail to the brightest star of all! 

Clear its radiance shine! 

Carolina, priceless gem, 

Receive all praises thine. 



FOR YOUR INFORMATION

CAROLINA ANNUAL FUND AND 2011 SENIOR CAMPAIGN 


Congratulations, graduates! There is no doubt that 
your experience at Carolina has included unparalleled 
opportunities and that your degree will open many 
doors for you in the future. 

As Carolina students, you have been touched 
every day by private gifts to Carolina that maintain 
and enhance the University’s tradition of excellence. 
Annual gifts improve the lives of students, faculty and 
staff. From scholarships to new research buildings and 
equipment, to access to incredible performances at 
Memorial Hall, to more than 6 million volumes in the 
libraries across campus, private gifts have impacted 
every aspect of campus life. 

You’re invited to support UNC-Chapel Hill 
through the Senior Campaign. You can make a gift 
to any part of the University that is meaningful 
to you — your major, a professorship, a student 
organization, scholarships and student aid, or campus¬ 
wide programs. Or, to make an immediate difference 
where it is needed the most, consider supporting the 
Chancellor’s Unrestricted fund. 


All gifts are included in the Senior Campaign and 
Annual Fund. Thank you to those who have already 
made your gift. Give online at annualfund.unc. 
edu/gift or by mail to P.O. Box 309, Chapel Hill,

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL 


HOLDEN THORP 
Chancellor 



At Carolina, Holden Thorp has been an undergraduate 
student, a chemistry professor, a planetarium direc¬ 
tor, an inventor and entrepreneur, as well as a dean. 

He graduated with honors, won teaching awards, 
led a powerhouse chemistry department, developed 
technology for electronic DNA chips, founded spin-off 
companies and succeeded as an administrator. 

Now, as the 10th chancellor, Thorp draws from 
all of those experiences in leading Carolina, which is 
among the great research universities in the United 
States and the world. 

A North Carolina native, Thorp grew up in 
Fayetteville in a family steeped in Carolina traditions 
dating to the 1800s. When graduation from Terry 
Sanford High School approached, there was only one 
school on his college application list — UNC. He 
earned a bachelor of science degree with honors 
in 1986. 

Attending a world-class research university — 
where research and teaching are done by the same 
people — gave Thorp opportunities to work in 
chemistry labs with some of UNC s best faculty. Those 


experiences inspired him to become a professor. 

He pursued that dream at the California Institute of 
Technology, where he earned a doctorate in chem¬ 
istry in 1989, and at Yale University for postgraduate 
work. After teaching a year at North Carolina State 
University, he returned to UNC in 1993. 

Because he has lived it from both sides of the 
classroom, Thorp is passionate about the undergradu¬ 
ate experience. “Carolina is perfectly suited to leverage 
our students’ interests in the great problems facing our 
world to enhance their academic success and position 
them to lead us,” he says. 

The University’s future depends on aspiring to 
global academic excellence and serving the needs of 
North Carolina’s students and people. “We’re the uni¬ 
versity of both - and: Both academic prominence and a 
commitment to our state,” Thorp says. 

Before becoming chancellor in 2008, Thorp served 
a year as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He 
chaired the chemistry department, led a $17 million 
fundraising effort for the Carolina Physical Science 
Complex as faculty director and was director of the 
Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. 

Thorp is an inaugural member of the 
National Advisory Council on Innovation and 
Entrepreneurship, created by the U.S. Department of 
Commerce to support President Obama’s innovation 
strategy. Members include successful entrepreneurs, 
innovators, investors and nonprofit and university 
leaders. He also serves on a new U.S. Manufacturing 
Competitiveness Initiative for the Council on 
Competitiveness, a group of CEOs, university 
presidents and labor leaders working to ensure U.S. 
prosperity in a global economy. He is also a member 
of the Champions’ Board of Teach for America, which

aims to end educational inequity across the nation, as 
well as the Associations’ Patent Reform Task Force, an 
advisory body to six associations representing higher 
education in a Congressional effort to reform patent 
law. He has published 130 scholarly articles on the 
electronic properties of DNA and RNA. He invented 
technology for electronic DNA chips that led to 19 
issued or pending U.S. patents. 

Thorp co-authored a new book, “Engines of 
Innovation — The Entrepreneurial University in 

GEOFFREY SAYRE-MCCORD 
Commencement Speaker 



Geoffrey Sayre-McCord, Ph.D., is Morehead Alumni 
Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at UNC- 
Chapel Hill. A member of the philosophy faculty 
since 1985, Sayre-McCord has chaired the depart¬ 
ment for 10 years. He is the founding co-director of 
UNC’s philosophy, politics and economics program 
and a member of the advisory board of the Parr 
Center for Ethics, which takes on a broad range of 
ethical issues. He also served on a faculty committee 
that contributed to Innovate@Carolina: Important 
Ideas for a Better World, a roadmap outlining how 


the 21st Century,” with Buck Goldstein, University 
Entrepreneur in Residence. The UNC Press book 
makes the case for the pivotal role of research 
universities as agents of societal change. All royalties 
will support innovation and entrepreneurship at 
the University. 

An accomplished musician who plays jazz bass and 
keyboard, Thorp is married to Patti Worden Thorp, 
a Hope Mills native and UNC-Greensboro graduate. 
Their children are John and Emma. 


the University can produce basic knowledge with the 
highest impact. 

Sayre-McCord specializes in moral theory and 
metaethics (which explores the nature and status 
of moral thought). His articles in scholarly journals 
have examined criminal justice and legal reparations, 
the relevance of ignorance to the demands of moral¬ 
ity, the justification of moral beliefs and the reasons 
people have to be moral. He edited the books “Essays 
on Moral Realism” (Cornell University Press, 1988) 
and “Hume: Moral Philosophy” (Hackett, 2006). 

Sayre-McCord twice won UNC’s Tanner Award 
for Teaching Excellence, in 1987 and 2005. He has 
held several distinguished term professorships — 
including the prestigious Bowman and Gordon Gray 
— and received numerous fellowships. He regularly 
gives invited lectures at universities and conferences 
around the world. 

His current research focuses on the nature of nor¬ 
mative concepts, evolution and morality and Adam 
Smith’s theory of moral sentiments; he lectured 
on the latter last year at Oxford University and the 
Australian National University.

THE OLD WELL 

At the heart of the campus stands the visual symbol of the 
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For many years 
the Old Well served as the sole water supply for Old East and 
Old West dormitories. In 1897, the well was given its pres¬ 
ent decorative form at the direction of President Edwin A. 
Alderman, who described his beautification project as largely 


derived from the Temple of Love in the Garden of Versailles. 
In 1954, the well was given added beauty with brick walks, 
plantings and benches. Legend holds that students can bring 
good luck with a drink from the Old Well on the first day 
of classes.

COMMENCEMENT MUSIC 

The University’s beloved alma mater, “Hark the Sound,” 
evokes the feelings of loyalty and friendship that students, 
alumni and true blue Tar Heels everywhere have for 
Carolina. The orchestral marches that accompany the 
commencement processional are equally memorable for 
their power and splendor. They are truly fitting musical 
celebrations of the talent and achievements of UNC-Chapel 
Hill’s visiting dignitaries, faculty and graduates. 

During today’s commencement ceremony, members 
of the academic processional will be welcomed by 
the fanfare brass, woodwinds and drums of Nikolai 


Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Procession of the Nobles” and 
Richard Strauss’ “Konigsmarsch.” Rimsky-Korsakov wrote 
his majestic march to open the second act of the opera- 
ballet “Mlada,” which premiered in Saint Petersburg, 
Russia, in 1892. Strauss premiered the flourishing 
“Konigsmarsch” at a palace concert in Berlin in 1907. 

The new graduates will exit the ceremony while hear¬ 
ing familiar Carolina melodies in “Tar Heel Rhapsody,” 
a composition written specifically for the University that 
features its school songs.

DEGREES WITH DISTINCTION 

To graduate with distinction or with highest distinction, undergraduate students must 
have completed at least 45 academic hours at UNC-Chapel Hill and have an overall 
grade point average of at least 3.5 or 3.8, respectively. 

UNDERGRADUATE HONORS PROGRAM 

The Honors Program offers exceptionally well-qualified first-year students, sophomores 
and juniors an opportunity to take part of their general education curriculum in special 
honors seminars and honors sections. Honors seminars are special topics courses, limited 
in enrollment to 15 students and taught by outstanding members of the University faculty. 
Honors sections of regular departmental course offerings are also limited in enrollment 
and are taught by permanent members of the University faculty. Honors seminars and 
sections emphasize critical reading, class discussion and expository writing. 

Senior departmental honors programs are provided for students who have demon¬ 
strated a very high level of scholastic ability and achievement and who desire to pursue 
an intensive, individualized program of study in their major discipline. Honors studies 
ordinarily consist of one or more of the following: the preparation of an honors thesis or 
essay, an independent research or reading program, an artistic performance or exhibi¬ 
tion, or the completion of advanced course work in the major not normally required of 
students in that major. It is on the basis of participation in senior honors that a student 
may be graduated from the University “with Honors” or “with Highest Honors.”

ACADEMIC DRESS 

The following information, based in part on An Academic 
Costume Code and Ceremony Guide (published by the 
American Council on Education), may be helpful in identifying 
academic attire worn during UNC’s commencement exercise. 

degree candidates’ regalia. The University’s 
Carolina blue bachelor’s gown is untrimmed and has no hood. 
The black master’s gown, also untrimmed, has a hood and 
an oblong sleeve, open at the wrist, that hangs nearly to the 
ground; the back part of its oblong shape is square cut and the 
arc in the front is cut away. 

The hooded doctoral gown features three bars across 
each sleeve. In 1999, the Faculty Council authorized a special 
doctoral gown for Carolina graduates. It is Carolina blue, with 
facings and crossbars of dark blue outlined in white piping. 
The facings bear the shield of the University supported by the 
torches of learning. The hoods of master’s and doctoral degree 
candidates vary in color according to the field of study 
(see list below). 

faculty regalia. Faculty wear the regalia of the institu¬ 
tion that conferred their highest degree. The doctoral gowns 
are usually faced with black velvet, although the color of the 
velvet may vary according to the field of study. Hoods, which 
differ in length according to the level of the degree held, are 
lined with official colors of the university or college that 


conferred the degree, usually with one color forming a 
chevron pattern over the other. Some colors you will see on 
faculty and administrators’ robes are, for example, the crimson 
of Harvard, the maroon of Chicago, the orange and black of 
Princeton, the dark blue of Yale, and the light blue and white 
of North Carolina. Like the hoods of master’s and doctoral 
degree candidates, faculty hoods are edged and bound with 
velvet in the color appropriate to the field of study. Tire colors 
in the hoods and gowns of faculty and administrators repre¬ 
sent the following fields in which degrees were taken: 


apricot: Nursing 
brown: Fine Arts 
citron: Social Work 
crimson: Journalism 
dark blue: Philosophy 
golden yellow: Science 
green: Medicine 
lemon yellow: Library

THE BELL TOWER 

The Morehead-Patterson Memorial Bell Tower was given to 
the University in 1931 by John Motley Morehead III and Rufus 
Lenoir Patterson. Its 14-bell carillon rings both manually 
and electronically to call students to class, provide twilight 
music and serenade the dispersing crowd after football games. 
Rising 172 feet, the tower is surrounded by a hedge and lawn 
designed by William C. Coker, botany professor and creator 
of the campus Arboretum.

THE UNIVERSITY SEAL 

The University seal typically appears on diplomas and graduation materials, grade transcripts 
and documents that indicate accomplishment in or on behalf of the University. The first seal of 
the University of North Carolina, designed in 1790, showed the face of Apollo and his emblem, 
the rising sun, used to symbolize the dawn of higher education in the state. The words sigul 
universitat carol septent” (Seal of the University of North Carolina) surrounded the drawing. A 
modification in 1895 added lighted torches of learning beside Apollo’s profile. Two years later 
another alteration replaced Apollo’s head with a shield on which the words Lux (light) and 
Libertas (liberty), separated by a white band running from the upper right to the lower left of 
the shield, appeared. In the 1940s, some observers mistakenly claimed the white stripe on the 
shield was a bend sinister, a heraldic code that was demeaning. In truth, the stripe was a bar 
sinister and merely denoted a second or later son. Still, the direction of the stripe was reversed, 
removing any question of stigma. Today’s seal is the same as the 1897 version, except the stripe 
runs from the upper left to the lower right.

UNIVERSITY COLORS 

As symbols of unity among Carolina students, alumni 
and fans, the school colors of light blue and white were 
first used around 1800 to distinguish between members 
of the Dialectic and Philanthropic Literary Societies. 
Throughout the 19th century, students were required to 
be members of either the Di or the Phi. The Di’s color 
was light blue, and the Phi’s was white. At University 
commencements, balls and other social events, the 
student officials, managers and marshals wore the color 
of their society, blue or white. Because the chief marshal 
or chief ball manager represented the whole student 
body, not just his society, he wore both colors. When 
the University fielded its first intercollegiate athletic 
teams in 1888, the question of what colors to wear had 
already been answered. Light blue and white had come 
to symbolize membership in the University, not in a 
single society.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR 


Dear Graduates and Families: 

Welcome to Commencement 2011.1 extend warm congratulations to oui graduates 
and a welcome to the ranks of Tar Heel alumni. To all the family members and friends who 
supported you, I offer thanks on behalf of Carolina’s faculty and staff. 

The world has changed a lot since you entered UNC, and you can expect that trend to 
continue. While many people still think of college years as a time of preparation, in reality 
you are already part of the world you live in. You have studied in places around the world and 
reached out to the surrounding community. You have learned that this is an interconnected 
world drawn closer together through new technologies. 

I am confident in the education you have undertaken at Carolina. I know that you will go 
out into the world and make a difference, as countless other Tar Heels have done before you. 

Carolina and Chapel Hill will be here for you. No matter where you go, you can count on 
our love and support. We can’t wait to hear from you.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL 



ALMA MATER 

The words of “Hark the Sound,” UNC-Chapel Hill’s alma mater, 
were written in 1897 by William Starr Myers, a graduating senior. 
The Glee Club director asked Myers to put words to the tune 
“Amici,” and the song was first performed on June 2, 1897, as part 
of the Glee Club’s Commencement performance in Gerrard Hall. 

Soon the song was almost forgotten. When a University quartet 
tried a few years later to remember the words, they could recollect 
only the first verse and the chorus of Myers’ original version. 

Two members of the quartet, Charles S. Mangum and Charles T. 
Woollen, added two verses to the one they remembered. Mangum 
later became a professor in the School of Medicine, and Woollen 
worked as the University’s business manager and comptroller. 

HARK THE SOUND 

Hark, the sound of Tar Heel voices 
Ringing clear and true. 

Singing Carolina’s praises, 

Shouting N.C.U.! 

Hail to the brightest star of all! 

Clear its radiance shine! 

Carolina, priceless gem, 

Receive all praises thine. 


FOR YOUR INFORMATION 

The Doctoral Hooding ceremony on Saturday will be captioned. For the Commencement ceremony in Kenan Stadium on 
Sunday, there will be a sign language interpreter. A student marshal or Disability Services staff member can advise people with 
hearing impairments about seating from which to view the interpreter. 

This Commencement program is printed prior to administering final examinations. Therefore, including degree candidates’ 
names in this program does not represent certification that candidates have satisfactorily completed degree requirements. 

Diplomas for bachelor’s, master of science and master of arts degrees will be printed after Commencement and mailed to 
graduates. Graduates with professional, doctoral or master’s degrees that contain an area of study in the degree, such as Master 
of Accounting, may receive their diplomas in a special departmental or school ceremony. Or, they may pick up a diploma from 
the Office of the Registrar in the Student and Academic Services Building from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Sunday. Diplomas 
will remain available in the Registrar’s Office for two weeks following Commencement, after which time they will be mailed.

HOLDEN THORP 

Chancellor 

At Carolina, Holden Thorp has been an undergraduate 
student, a chemistry professor, a planetarium direc¬ 
tor, an inventor and entrepreneur, as well as a dean. 

He graduated with honors, won teaching awards, 
led a powerhouse chemistry department, developed 
technology for electronic DNA chips, founded spin-off 
companies and succeeded as an administrator. 

Now, as the 10th chancellor, Thorp draws from 
all of those experiences in leading Carolina, which is 
among the great research universities in the United 
States and the world. 

A North Carolina native, Thorp grew up in 
Fayetteville in a family steeped in Carolina traditions 
dating to the 1800s. When graduation from Terry 
Sanford High School approached, there was only one 
school on his college application list — UNC. He 
earned a bachelor of science degree with honors in 
1986. 

Attending a world-class research university — 
where research and teaching are done by the same 
people — gave Thorp opportunities to work in 
chemistry labs with some of UNC s best faculty. Those 
experiences inspired him to become a professor. 

He pursued that dream at the California Institute of 
Technology, where he earned a doctorate in chemistry 
in 1989, and at Yale University for postgraduate work. 
After teaching a year at NC State, he returned to UNC 
in 1993. 

Because he has lived it from both sides of the 
classroom, Thorp is passionate about the undergradu¬ 
ate experience. “Carolina is perfectly suited to leverage 
our students’ interests in the great problems facing our 
world to enhance their academic success and position 
them to lead us,” he says. 



The University’s future depends on aspiring to 
global academic excellence and serving the needs of 
North Carolina’s students and people. “We’re the uni¬ 
versity of both - and: Both academic prominence and a 
commitment to our state,” Thorp says. 

Before becoming chancellor in 2008, Thorp served 
a year as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He 
chaired the chemistry department, led a $17 million 
fundraising effort for the Carolina Physical Science 
Complex as faculty director, and was director of the 
Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. 

Thorp is an inaugural member of the 
National Advisory Council on Innovation and 
Entrepreneurship, created by the U.S. Department of 
Commerce to support President Obama’s innovation 
strategy. Members include successful entrepreneurs, 
innovators, investors, and nonprofit and university 
leaders. He also serves on a new U.S. Manufacturing 
Competitiveness Initiative for the Council on 
Competitiveness, a group of CEOs, university 
presidents and labor leaders working to ensure U.S. 
prosperity in a global economy. 

He is also a member of the Champions’ Board 
of Teach for America, which aims to end educa¬ 
tional inequity across the nation, as well as the 
Associations’ Patent Reform Task Force, an advisory

body to six associations representing higher educa¬ 
tion in a Congressional effort to reform patent law. 

The chancellor also serves on the National Security 
Higher Education Advisory Board, which works to 
bridge historical gaps between the U.S. intelligence 
community and academe regarding national security 
issues. Thorp also serves on the Board of Overseers for 
the Chemical Heritage Foundation, an independent 
nonprofit organization that fosters an understanding 
of chemistry’s impact on society. He has published 130 
scholarly articles on the electronic properties of DNA 
and RNA. He invented technology for electronic DNA 
chips that led to 19 issued or pending U.S. patents. 


Thorp co-authored a new book, “Engines of 
Innovation — The Entrepreneurial University in 
the 21st Century,” with Buck Goldstein, University 
Entrepreneur in Residence. The UNC Press book 
makes the case for the pivotal role of research uni¬ 
versities as agents of societal change. All royalties 
will support innovation and entrepreneurship at the 
University. 

An accomplished musician who plays jazz bass and 
keyboard, Thorp is married to Patti Worden Thorp, 
a Hope Mills native and UNC-Greensboro graduate. 
Their children are John and Emma.

THE DOCTORAL 
HOODING SPEAKER 

Suzanne Cusick 

suzanne cusick, professor of 
music at New York University, is 
a music historian specializing in 
the music of 17th-century Italy. 

She has published extensively on 
gender and sexuality in relation 
to the musical cultures of early 
modern Italy and of contemporary 
North America. 

Her feminist readings of early 
modern music and musical culture 
have appeared in the Journal 
of the American Musicological 
Society, Early Music, The Cambridge Companion 
to Monteverdi and the Brazilian journal Per Musi: 
Revista Academica de Musica. Cusick’s book, 
“Francesca Caccini at the Medici Court: Music and 
the Circulation of Power” (Chicago, 2009), received 
the 2010 Book Award from the Society for the Study 
of Early Modern Women. 

Since 2003, Cusick has edited Women and Music: 
A Journal of Gender and Culture, the first journal 



(and the only English-language journal) focused 
on the relationship of gender and sexuality to 
musical culture. She currently studies the use 
of noise, music and gender coercion in the 
detention and interrogation of prisoners being 
held during the fight against terrorism, work for 
which she received the Philip Brett Award given 
by the LGBTQ Study Group of the American 
Musicological Society in 2007. 

Before joining NYU, Cusick served as a faculty 
member at the University of Virginia. During her 
decade at UVA, she led the creation of a doctoral 
program that combined the areas of musicology 
and ethnomusicology. 

Among her other many achievements, she was 
the first Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellow 
at Villa I Tatti, the Harvard University Center for 
Italian Renaissance Studies. 

Cusick received her B.F.A. from Newcomb 
College of Tulane University and her Ph.D. in 
musicology from the University of North Carolina 
at Chapel Hill.

THE UNIVERSITY OP NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL 


HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 

Ernest James Gaines 

DOCTOR OF LETTERS 


ernest gaines ranks among the premier American 
writers of the second half of the 20th century. 

Gaines grew up in the old slave quarters of River 
Lake Plantation in Oscar, Pointe Coupee Parish, 
Louisiana, a setting and culture that permeates his 
fiction. He moved to Vallejo, California when he was 
15, joining the black diaspora from the American 
South. He earned a degree in literature in 1957 
from San Francisco State University and later won a 
creative writing fellowship to Stanford University. 

Gaines became writer-in-residence at the 
University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 1983 and, for 
many years, split his time between Louisiana and San 
Francisco. He retired in 2004 and is now writer-in¬ 
residence emeritus. 

A gifted storyteller, Gaines is an artist whose 
work explores the endurance of human dignity. 
Gaines illuminates the intricacies of black-white 
relationships in the mid-20th-century American 
South and the experience of black Southerners 
in coping with and rising above a sense of 
powerlessness. 

Gaines is best known for “The Autobiography of 
Miss Jane Pittman,” written in the voice of a black 
woman who lived from the period of slavery to see 
the civil rights movement in full bloom. Published 
in 1971, it was one of the first widely read works to 
shed light on a largely neglected point of view of the 
American experience. In 1974, the book was made 
into a television movie and won nine Emmy Awards. 

His 1983 novel “A Gathering of Old Men” is a 
riveting story of a black community’s encounter 
with power. His 1993 novel “A Lesson Before Dying” 
centers on a young black man unjustly sentenced to 
death and a young teacher’s visits to his cell. This 
work won the National Book Critics Circle Award 
for fiction and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. 



In 2005 he published “Mozart and Leadbelly,” a 
collection of short stories and essays. To date, he has 
published six novels, two collections of stories and a 
children’s book. Four of his works have been made 
into television movies. 

Gaines still resides in Louisiana in a house he 
built along False River on land within the boundaries 
of the same plantation where he grew up. In 1996, as 
a visiting professor at the University of Rennes, he 
taught the first creative writing class ever offered in 
the French university system. 

Gaines’ honors include Chevalier de l’Ordre des 
Artes et des Lettres, the American Academy of Arts 
and Letters, the National Humanities Medal, the Dos 
Passos Prize and a “genius” grant from the John D. 
and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. In 2004, 
he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature. 
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette formally 
opened the Ernest J. Gaines Center, an international 
center for scholarship on Gaines and his work, on 
October 31, 2010. 

Each year the Baton Rouge Area Foundation 
presents the Ernest J. Gaines Award “to inspire and 
recognize African American writers of excellence.”

John Grisham 

DOCTOR OF LETTERS 


JOHN grisham, a native of Jonesboro, Arkansas, 
is the author of 25 books, including numerous legal 
thrillers. He grew up in Southaven, Mississippi, 
and though he originally dreamed of a career as a 
professional baseball player, he received a bachelor 
of science in accounting at Mississippi State 
University in 1977. He then went on to earn a juris 
doctor degree from the University of Mississippi’s 
law school in 1981. 

Grisham practiced law for nearly a decade in 
Southaven, specializing in criminal defense and 
personal injury litigation. In 1983 he was elected to 
the Mississippi House of Representatives and served 
until 1990. 

Grisham spent three years working on his first 
novel, getting up at 5 a.m. in order to write before 
work. “A Time to Kill” was published in 1989. His 
next novel, “The Firm,” spent 47 weeks on the New 
York Times bestseller list and became the bestselling 
novel of 1991. His next book, “The Pelican Brief,” 
also hit number one on the list, and the book that 
followed, “The Client,” debuted at number one, 
confirming Grisham’s reputation as master of the 
legal thriller. Grisham is one of only three authors to 
sell two million copies of a book on a first printing. 

Since 1988, Grisham has written one novel each 
year. There are more than 250 million of his books 
in print worldwide, translated into 38 languages. 

Nine of them have been turned into motion 
pictures. Grisham’s latest book, “The Confession,” 
was published in October 2010. His first collection of 
short stories, “Ford County,” appeared in 2009, and 
“The Innocent Man,” published in 2006, was his first 
work of nonfiction. 



When he’s not writing, Grisham devotes his time 
to numerous charitable causes, including his Rebuild 
The Coast Fund, which has raised $8.8 million for 
Gulf Coast relief in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. 
His childhood passion for baseball continues 
unabated. He serves as commissioner for his local 
Little League and has no fewer than six ball fields 
built on his properties where he has hosted more 
than 350 kids on 26 Little League teams. Grisham 
also serves on the Board of Directors for the 
Innocence Project, an organization dedicated to 
exonerating the innocent through DNA testing after 
they have been convicted. 

Grisham’s ties to Carolina are substantial. He 
spoke at two North Carolina Literary Festivals 
held on the campus in 1998 and 2009, and he was 
the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 
Commencement speaker in 2010, the same year 
his wife, Renee, received her bachelor’s degree from 
UNC. His daughter, Shea, graduated from UNC 
in 2008.

HONORARY DEGREE RE 

Dwight T. Pitcaithley 

DOCTOR OF LAWS 

dwight T. pitcaithley, currently professor of 
history at New Mexico State University, served as 
chief historian of the National Park Service from 
1995-2005. 

Born in Carlsbad, New Mexico, Pitcaithley served 
in the U.S. Marine Corps in Vietnam, received his 
B.A. and M.A. from Eastern New Mexico University, 
and earned his Ph.D. in history from Texas Tech 
University in 1976. He entered the Park Service 
as a seasonal guide at Carlsbad Caverns National 
Park and soon rose to become a historian at the 
Southwest Regional office (1976-1979), the regional 
historian for the North Atlantic Region (1979-1989), 
chief of the National Capital Region’s Division of 
Cultural Resources (1989-1995), and, finally, chief 
historian. 

As chief historian, Pitcaithley worked with vision 
and creativity to push the Park Service to realize 
its full potential to inspire, inform and educate the 
American public in what has been called America’s 
largest outdoor history classroom. 

A first-rate scholar and a courageous risk- 
taker, Pitcaithley both reinvigorated the practice 
of history within the Park Service and enhanced 
the standing of public history within the historical 
profession. Surveyed in 2010 by the Organization of 
American Historians, Park Service historians praised 
Pitcaithley’s “energized and proactive” approach for 
“making us feel respected and listened to.” They 
credited him with making a “tremendous positive 
impact on how we present history and resource 
management issues in the Service.” Pitcaithley 
was especially interested in bringing the insights 
of recent scholarship into historical interpretation 
in the parks. He helped shepherd a service-wide 
initiative that at last incorporated slavery as a 
central topic at Civil War battlefields. His ability, 
a colleague recalled, “to channel ... criticism into 



discussions based on sound historical scholarship 
was phenomenal.” He also forged an agreement 
between the Organization of American Historians 
and the Park Service that has improved historical 
interpretation and resource management at many 
sites, including Gettysburg, where extensive new 
Civil War exhibits were installed in 2008. At 
Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical 
Park, he successfully intervened to ensure that the 
full story of how slavery underpinned the birth of 
American liberty would be told at the “President’s 
House” site near where the Liberty Bell now sits. A 
major national study of history practice throughout 
the park system, which he originally envisioned, is 
currently underway. 

A prolific publishing historian, Pitcaithley is 
author of “Little Paper Amendments: Slavery and 
the Constitution on the Eve of the Civil War” 
(forthcoming) and coeditor of “The Antiquities 
Act: A Century of American Archaeology, Historic 
Preservation and Nature Conservation” (2006), and 
has contributed chapters to “Becoming Historians” 
(2009), “Slavery and Public History: The Tough 
Stuff of American Memory” (2006), “Preserving 
Western History” (2005), “Public History and the 
Environment” (2004), “Myth, Memory and the 
Making of the American Landscape” (2001), and 
“Seeing and Being Seen: Tourism in the American 
West “ (2001).

THE CHANCELLOR’S MEDAL 

The chancellor’s medal, an emblem of the office of chancellor, is 
worn during the University’s ceremonial occasions. The sterling 
silver disk, which is three inches in diameter and seven ounces 
Troy weight, was given to the University by John Sanders, professor 
emeritus and former director of the UNC Institute of Government, 
and his wife, Ann Beal Sanders. Modeled by sculptor Pete Hinton 
and bearing the University seal, it was first worn by Chancellor Paul 
Hardin during the 1994 University Day convocation. 

THE BICENTENNIAL STAFF 

The faculty marshal carries the bicentennial staff while leading 
the faculty processional on ceremonial occasions such as 
Commencement and University Day. The staff, commissioned 
for the University’s 1993 bicentennial celebration by John Sanders, 
professor emeritus and former director of the UNC Institute of 
Government, and his wife, Ann Beal Sanders, was modeled by 
sculptor Pete Hinton. It consists of a sterling silver three-inch-high 
replica of the Old Well mounted on a turned and tapered oak shaft. 
The shaft was made from timber salvaged from the 1822 section of 
Old West residence hall during its 1991-1993 renovation. 

THE UNIVERSITY SEAL 

The University seal typically appears on diplomas and graduation 
materials, grade transcripts and documents that indicate 
accomplishment in or on behalf of the University. 

Tire first seal of the 
University of North Carolina, 
designed in 1790, showed 
the face of Apollo and his 
emblem, the rising sun, 
used to symbolize the dawn 
of higher education in the 
state. The words “SIGUL 
UNIVERSITAT CAROL 
SEPTENT” (Seal of the 
University of North Carolina) 
surrounded the drawing. 

A modification in 1895 added lighted torches of learning 
beside Apollo’s profile. Two years later another alteration replaced 
Apollo’s head with a shield on which the words Lux (light) and 
Libertas (liberty), separated by a white band running from the 
upper right to the lower left of the shield, appeared. 

In the 1940s, some observers mistakenly claimed the white 
stripe on the shield was a bend sinister, a heraldic code that was 
demeaning. In truth, the stripe was a bar sinister and merely 


denoted a second or later son. Still, the direction of the stripe was 
reversed, removing any question of stigma. 

Today’s seal is the same as the 1897 version, except the stripe 
runs from the upper left to the lower right. 

UNIVERSITY COLORS 

As symbols of unity among Carolina students, alumni and fans, the 
school colors of light blue and white were first used around 1800 
to distinguish between members of the Dialectic and Philanthropic 
Literary Societies. Throughout the 19th century, students were 
required to be members of either the Di or the Phi. The Di’s color 
was light blue, and the Phi’s was white. 

At University commencements, balls and other social events, 
the student officials, managers and marshals wore the color of 
their society, blue or white. Because the chief marshal or chief ball 
manager represented the whole student body, not just his society, 
he wore both colors. 

When the University fielded its first intercollegiate athletic 
teams in 1888, the question of what colors to wear had already been 
answered. Light blue and white had come to symbolize membership 
in the University, not in a single society. 

ACADEMIC DRESS 

The following information, based in part on An Academic Costume 
Code and Ceremony Guide (published by the American Council 
on Education), may be helpful in identifying academic attire worn 
during UNC’s Commencement exercises. 

degree candidates’ regalia. The University’s 
bachelor’s gown was redesigned this year by award-winning colorist 
and fashion designer Alexander Julian — a Chapel Hill native and 
UNC alumnus — to be both Carolina blue and truly green, as in 
sustainably made. The fabric for the new True Blue gown is made 
from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles (23 bottles 
for each gown) and is manufactured at mills in the Carolinas. The 
information about the gown’s sustainability is suitably printed 
directly on the cloth, without the use of an extra label. In addition to 
being dyed a custom Carolina blue color, the True Blue gowns also 
have a more streamlined fit, white piping along the yoke and two 
white panels in front. The new tassels are blue and white, topped 
with a silver-colored Old Well medallion. An optional accessory is 
an embroidered white stole that the graduate may give to a parent in 
gratitude after the Commencement ceremony. 

The untrimmed, black master’s gown has a hood and an oblong 
sleeve, open at the wrist, that hangs nearly to the ground; the back 
part of its oblong shape is square cut and the arc in the front is cut 
away. The hooded doctoral gown features three bars across each 
sleeve. In 1999, the Faculty Council authorized a special doctoral 



Two Thousand Eleven Commencement \ 1 9 


gown for Carolina graduates. It is Carolina blue, with facings and 
crossbars of dark blue outlined in white piping. The facings bear the 
shield of the University supported by the torches of learning. 

The hoods of master’s and doctoral degree candidates vary in 
color according to the field of study (see list below). 

This Commencement weekend, some students will be wearing 
special cords. Gold cords will be worn by Honors graduates, and 
blue and white cords will be worn by Public Service Scholars. 

faculty regalia. Faculty wear the regalia of the institution that 
conferred their highest degree. The doctoral gowns are usually faced 
with black velvet, although the color of the velvet may vary according 
to the field of study. Hoods, which difFer in length according to the 
level of the degree held, are lined with official colors of the university 
or college that conferred the degree, usually with one color forming 
a chevron pattern over the other. Some colors you will see on faculty 
and administrators’ robes are, for example, the crimson of Harvard, 
the maroon of Chicago, the orange and black of Princeton, the dark 
blue of Yale, and the light blue and white of North Carolina. 

Like the hoods of master’s and doctoral degree candidates, 
faculty hoods are edged and bound with velvet in the color 
appropriate to the field of study. The colors in the hoods and gowns 
of faculty and administrators represent the following fields in 
which degrees were taken: 


apricot: Nursing 
brown: Fine Arts 
citron: Social Work 
crimson: Journalism 
dark blue: Philosophy 
golden yellow: Science 
green: Medicine 
lemon yellow: Library 
Science 

light blue: Education 
lilac: Dentistry 
olive green: Pharmacy 
orange: Engineering 


peacock blue: Public 
Administration 
pink: Music 
purple: Law 
sage green: Physical 
Education 

salmon pink: Public Health 
scarlet: Theology 

YELLOW BROWN: 

Commerce, Business, 
Accountancy 
white: Arts, Letters, 
Humanities 


CONFERRING OF THE HOOD, 

TURNING OF THE TASSEL 

At a certain point in a Commencement ceremony, a gesture or 
action symbolically indicates that the degree has been conferred. 
For doctoral degree candidates, that symbolic action is called the 
“hooding.” During Saturday’s Hooding ceremony, doctoral degree 
candidates will be conferred with a hood by the provost and either 
their advisor or dissertation committee chair. For undergraduates, 
the gesture is the turning of the tassel. At the beginning of the 
main Commencement ceremony on Sunday, undergraduate degree

Will, Senior Class Vice President Justin Tyler and Senior Class Chief Marshal Chelsea Phillips. 


candidates will wear their tassels on the right side of the mortarboard 
(cap). Then, at the moment when their degrees are awarded, they will 
move them to the left side. Upon turning the tassel or being hooded, 
a student transitions from degree candidate to graduate. 

MUSIC 

Graduates, families and friends attending Commencement weekend 
will have several opportunities to hear the University’s beloved 
“Hark the Sound” and James Taylor’s classic “Carolina in My 
Mind.” These songs evoke the feelings ofloyalty and friendship 
that students, alumni and true blue Tar Heels everywhere have 
for the University. But the orchestral marches that accompany the 
commencement processionals are equally memorable for their 
power and splendor. They are truly fitting musical celebrations 
of the talent and achievements of UNC-Chapel Hill’s visiting 
dignitaries, faculty and graduates. 

During Saturday’s Doctoral Hooding ceremony and Sunday’s 
main Commencement ceremony, members of the academic 
processional will be welcomed by the fanfare brass, woodwinds and 
drums of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Procession of the Nobles” 
and Richard Strauss’ “Konigsmarsch.” Rimsky-Korsakov wrote his 
majestic march to open the second act of the opera-ballet “Mlada,” 
which premiered in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 1892. Strauss 
premiered the flourishing “Konigsmarsch” at a palace concert in 
Berlin in 1907. 

The new graduates will exit the ceremonies while hearing familiar 
Carolina melodies in “Tar Heel Rhapsody,” a composition written 
specifically for the University that features its school songs.

THE FIRST CAROLINA DIPLOMA 

In September 1796 Carolina student Davie Gillespie 
began working with a group of men to determine 
the Southern boundary of the United States. His 
instructors gave Gillespie a document to carry as 
proof that he had been a student at the University of 
North Carolina. The document, now in the Library of 
Congress, was signed by his professors and ended with 
the statement, “We thought it proper to give him this 
certificate.” 

The University’s first graduating class in 1798 included 
Hinton James, the first student to enroll. Seven men 
received the first documents that by today’s standards 
can be called UNC-Chapel Hill diplomas. One of 
the original diplomas is in the Southern Historical 
Collection in Wilson Library. 

During the University’s early years, commencement at 
Carolina was a time for examinations and promotions 
to higher classes. There was a commencement, but no 
degrees awarded and no graduation.

TAR HEELS 

The University uses the nickname “Tar Heels,” and the 
entire state does as well. One version of the nickname’s 
origin has the name first being applied to North 
Carolinians during the Civil War. One record talks of 
a battle in Virginia, where their supporting column 
retreated, but North Carolina troops stood alone to 
fight successfully. The victorious troops were asked in 
a condescending tone by some Virginians, who had 
retreated, “Any more tar down in the Old North State, 
boys?” The response came quickly: “No, not a bit; old 
Jeff s bought it all up.” The Virginians asked: “Is that 
so? What is he going to do with it?” The reply: “He is 
going to put it on you’ns heels to make you stick better 
in the next fight.”

At the heart of the campus stands 
the visual symbol of the University 
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For 
many years the Old Well served as 
the sole water supply for Old East and 
Old West dormitories. In 1897, the 
well was given its present decorative 
form at the direction of President 
Edwin A. Alderman, who described 
his beautification project as largely 
derived from the Temple of Love in 
the Garden of Versailles. In 1954, 
the well was given added beauty with 
brick walks, plantings and benches. 
Students can bring good luck with a 
drink from the Old Well on the first 
day of classes.

THE BELL TOWER 

The Morehead-Patterson Memorial Bell Tower was given to 
the University in 1931 by John Motley Morehead III and Rufus 
Lenoir Patterson. Its 14-bell carillon rings both manually 
and electronically to call students to class, provide twilight 
music and serenade the dispersing crowd after football games. 
Rising 172 feet, the tower is surrounded by a hedge and lawn 
designed by William C. Coker, botany professor and creator 
of the campus Arboretum.

The Honors Program offers exceptionally well-qualified first-year students, sophomores 
and juniors an opportunity to take part of their general education curriculum in special 
honors seminars and honors sections. Honors seminars are special topics courses, limited 
in enrollment to 15 students and taught by outstanding members of the University fac¬ 
ulty. Honors sections of regular departmental course offerings are also limited in enroll¬ 
ment and are taught by permanent members ol the University faculty. Honors seminars 
and sections emphasize critical reading, class discussion and expository writing. 

Senior departmental honors programs are provided for students who have demonstrated 
a very high level of scholastic ability and achievement and who desire to pursue an intensive, 
individualized program of study in their major discipline. Honors studies ordinarily consist 
of one or more of the following: the preparation of an honors thesis or essay, an indepen¬ 
dent research or reading program, an artistic performance or exhibition, or the completion 
of advanced course work in the major not normally required of students in that major. It 
is on the basis of participation in senior honors that a student may be graduated from the 
University “with Honors” or “with Highest Honors.”

DECEMBER EIGHTEENTH 
THOUSAND ELEVEN 


MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR 


Dear Graduates and Families: 

Welcome to December 2011 Commencement. Congratulations and welcome to the ranks of 
Tar Heel alumni. To all the family members and friends who supported you, I offer thanks 
on behalf of Carolina’s faculty and staff. 

The world has changed a lot since you entered UNC and you can expect that trend to con¬ 
tinue. While many people still think of college years as a time of preparation, in reality you 
are already part of the world you live in. You’ve studied in places far from home and reached 
out to the local community. You’ve learned that this is an interconnected world drawn closer 
together through new technologies. 

I am confident in the education you’ve undertaken at Carolina. I know that you will go out 
into the world and make a difference, as countless other Tar Heels have done before you. 

Carolina and Chapel Hill will be here for you. No matter where you go, you can count on 
our love and support. We can’t wait to hear from you.

ALMA MATER 

The words of “Hark the Sound,” UNC-Chapel Hills alma mater, 
were written in 1897 by William Starr Myers, a graduating senior. 

The Glee Club director asked Myers to put words to the tune 
“Amici,” and the song was first performed on June 2,1897, as part of 
the Glee Club’s Commencement performance in Gerrard Hall. 

Soon the song was almost forgotten. When a University quartet 
tried a few years later to remember the words, they could recol¬ 
lect only the first verse and the chorus of Myers’ original version. 
Two members of the quartet, Charles S. Mangum and Charles T. 
Woollen, added two verses to the one they remembered. Mangum 
later became a professor in the School of Medicine, and Woollen 
worked as the University’s business manager and comptroller. 

HARK THE SOUND 

Hark, the sound of Tar Heel voices 
Ringing clear and true, 

Singing Carolina’s praises, 

Shouting N.C.U.! 

Hail to the brightest star of all! 

Clear its radiance shine! 

Carolina, priceless gem, 

Receive all praises thine. 


FOR YOUR INFORMATION 

If you have any questions regarding Commencement activities, or in the event of an emergency, please contact an usher. 

Captioning will be provided during the ceremony. A student marshal or Disability Services staff member can advise persons 
with hearing impairments about seating from which to view the screen. 

This Commencement program is printed prior to administering final examinations. Therefore, including degree candidates’ 
names in this program does not represent certification that candidates have satisfactorily completed degree requirements. 

All diplomas will be printed after Commencement and mailed to graduates. Every effort has been made to ensure the 
accuracy of this program’s content. Any omissions or errors are unintentional.

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL 


HOLDEN THORP 
Chancellor 



At Carolina, Holden Thorp has been an undergraduate 
student, a chemistry professor,' a planetarium director, 
an inventor and entrepreneur, as well as a dean. He 
graduated with honors, won teaching awards, chaired 
a powerhouse chemistry department, developed 
technology for electronic DNA chips, founded spin-off 
companies, and succeeded as an administrator. 

As the 10th chancellor, Thorp draws from those 
experiences in leading Carolina, one of the world’s 
great research universities. 

A North Carolina native, Thorp grew up in 
Fayetteville in a family steeped in UNC traditions 
dating to the 1800s. When he graduated from Terry 
Sanford High School, only one college was on his 
application list — Carolina, where he earned a 
bachelor of science degree with honors in 1986. 

Attending a world-class research university — 
where research and teaching are done by the same 
people — allowed Thorp to work in chemistry 
labs with top faculty and inspired him to become a 
professor. He pursued that dream at the California 
Institute of Technology, where he earned a doctorate 
in chemistry in 1989, and at Yale University for 


postgraduate work. After teaching a year at NC State, 
he returned in 1993 to UNC, where he was dean of the 
College of Arts and Sciences and chair of the chemistry 
department before becoming chancellor in 2008. 

Because he has lived it from both sides of the 
classroom, Thorp is passionate about the undergraduate 
experience. “Carolina is perfectly suited to leverage 
our students’ interests in the great problems facing our 
world to enhance their academic success,” he says. 

The University’s future depends on aspiring to 
global academic excellence and serving the needs 
of North Carolina’s students and people. “We’re the 
university of both-and: Both academic prominence 
and a commitment to our state,” Thorp says. 

Under Thorp, Carolina seeks to raise $125 million 
in private gifts to implement “Innovate@Carolina: 
Important Ideas for a Better World,” a roadmap 
developed by alumni and friends experienced in 
leading innovation in science, business, medicine, 
nonprofits and academia. One result is UNC’s role in 
a consortium created by a $3.6 million gift from the 
Blackstone Charitable Foundation to help the Research 
Triangle develop a network of entrepreneurial 
assistance similar to those in Silicon Valley and the 
Boston Corridor. Partners include Duke, NC State, 

NC Central and the Center for Entrepreneurial 
Development. The network has the potential over 
a decade to create jobs, attract seed, startup and 
expansion capital, and generate revenue. 

Thorp is a member of President Obama’s 
National Advisory Council on Innovation and 
Entrepreneurship. As a result, the University hosted 
the council’s first national forum in Chapel Hill. 

Thorp co-authored “Engines of Innovation — The 
Entrepreneurial University in the 21st Century,” a UNC 
Press book that makes the case for the pivotal role 
of research universities as agents of societal change. 
Royalties support innovation at UNC. 

Thorp serves on the U.S. Manufacturing 
Competitiveness Initiative for the Council on 
Competitiveness. He has published 130 scholarly 



Two Thousand Eleven Mid-Year Commencement 


9 


articles on the electronic properties of DNA and RNA 
and co-founded Viamet Pharmaceutials in Morrisville, 
which is developing drugs for fungal infections and 
prostate cancer. 

Hie chancellor also is a member of a national 
Commission on Higher Education Attainment, which 
was created by the six presidentially based higher 


education associations to chart a course for greatly 
improving college retention and attainment and, in 
turn, restore the nations higher education preeminence. 

An accomplished musician who plays jazz bass and 
keyboard, Thorp is married to Patti Worden Thorp, 
a Hope Mills native and UNC Greensboro graduate. 
Their children are John and Emma. 


BARBARA FREDRICKSON 
Commencement Speaker 



Barbara Fredrickson is an internationally acclaimed 
psychology professor who studies positive 
emotions and human wellbeing. As Kenan 
Distinguished Professor of Psychology at UNC- 
Chapel Hill and director of UNC s positive emotions 
and psychophysiology lab, she studies how positive 
emotions affect peoples thinking patterns, social 
behavior and physiological reactions. Her goal is to 
understand how positive emotions might accumulate 
and compound to transform peoples lives for the better. 


Fredrickson received her Ph.D. from Stanford 
University in 1990. Her research and teaching have 
been recognized with honors that include the 2000 
American Psychological Association’s Templeton 
Prize in Positive Psychology. The National Institute 
of Mental Health has consistently funded her 
research. She also directs the social psychology 
doctoral program and is an adjunct management 
professor at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. 

Her 2009 book, “Positivity,” cites tools for creat¬ 
ing a healthier, more vibrant and flourishing life. “I 
hope to convey to our graduates that beyond all the 
direct knowledge they gained here at Carolina - the 
math, the social and natural sciences, the arts and 
humanities, the professional skills - they’ll also carry 
forward with them many indirect lessons,” she said. 

While at Carolina, Fredrickson said, students 
grow through the curiosity and enthusiasm shared 
in classrooms, the pride shared in arts venues 
and sports arenas, and the comfort they give 
each other during trying times. Tire experiences 
make them more resilient, resourceful, caring and 
compassionate, she said. 

“Continuing to develop these skills - for truly 
connecting with others, with the warmth of good 
cheer and goodwill - is vital for continued health, 
happiness and success in the exciting and challeng¬ 
ing decades to come.”

THE FIRST CAROLINA DIPLOMA 

In September 1796 Carolina student Davie Gillespie 
began working with a group of men to determine 
the Southern boundary of the United States. His 
instructors gave Gillespie a document to carry as 
proof that he had been a student at the University of 
North Carolina. The document, now in the Library of 
Congress, was signed by his professors and ended with 
the statement, “We thought it proper to give him this 
certificate.” 

The University’s first graduating class in 1798 included 
Hinton James, the first student to enroll. Seven men 
received the first documents that by today’s standards 
can be called UNC-Chapel Hill diplomas. One of 
the original diplomas is in the Southern Historical 
Collection in Wilson Library. 

During the University’s early years, commencement at 
Carolina was a time for examinations and promotions 
to higher classes. There was a commencement, but no 
degrees awarded and no graduation.

TAR HEELS 

The University uses the nickname “Tar Heels,” and the 
entire state does as well. One version of the nickname’s 
origin has the name first being applied to North Carolin¬ 
ians during the Civil War. One record talks of a battle in 
Virginia, where their supporting column retreated, but 
North Carolina troops stood alone to fight successfully. 
The victorious troops were asked in a condescending tone 
by some Virginians, who had retreated, “Any more tar 
down in the Old North State, boys?” The response came 
quickly: “No, not a bit; old Jeff’s bought it all up.” The Vir¬ 
ginians asked: “Is that so? What is he going to do with it?” 
The reply: “He is going to put it on you’ns heels to make 
you stick better in the next fight.”

THE BICENTENNIAL STAFF 

The faculty marshal carries the bicentennial staff while 
leading the faculty processional on ceremonial occasions 
such as Commencement and University Day. The staff, 
commissioned for the University’s 1993 bicentennial 
celebration by John Sanders, professor emeritus and 
former director of the UNC Institute of Government, 
and his wife, Ann Beal Sanders, was modeled by sculptor 
Pete Hinton. It consists of a sterling silver three-inch-high 
replica of the Old Well mounted on a turned and tapered 
oak shaft. The shaft was made from timber salvaged from 
the 1822 section of Old West residence hall during its

THE OLD WELL 

At the heart of the campus stands the visual symbol of the 
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For many years 
the Old Well served as the sole water supply for Old East and 
Old West dormitories. In 1897, the well was given its pres¬ 
ent decorative form at the direction of President Edwin A. 
Alderman, who described his beautification project as largely 


derived from the Temple of Love in the Garden of Versailles. 
In 1954, the well was given added beauty with brick walks, 
plantings and benches. Legend holds that students can bring 
good luck with a drink from the Old Well on the first day 
of classes.

THE UNIVERSITY SEAL 

The University seal typically appears on diplomas and graduation materials, grade transcripts 
and documents that indicate accomplishment in or on behalf of the University. The first seal of 
the University of North Carolina, designed in 1790, showed the face of Apollo and his emblem, 
the rising sun, used to symbolize the dawn of higher education in the state. The words “sigul 
universitat carol septent” (Seal of the University of North Carolina) surrounded the drawing. A 
modification in 1895 added lighted torches of learning beside Apollo’s profile. Two years later 
another alteration replaced Apollo’s head with a shield on which the words Lux (light) and 
Libertas (liberty), separated by a white band running from the upper right to the lower left of 
the shield, appeared. In the 1940s, some observers mistakenly claimed the white stripe on the 
shield was a bend sinister, a heraldic code that was demeaning. In truth, the stripe was a bar 
sinister and merely denoted a second or later son. Still, the direction of the stripe was reversed, 
removing any question of stigma. Today’s seal is the same as the 1897 version, except the stripe 
runs from the upper left to the lower right.

UNIVERSITY COLORS 

As symbols of unity among Carolina students, alumni and fans, the school colors of 
light blue and white were first used around 1800 to distinguish between members of the 
Dialectic and Philanthropic Literary Societies. Throughout the 19th century, students were 
required to be members of either the Di or the Phi. The Di’s color was light blue, and the 
Phi’s was white. At University commencements, balls and other social events, the student 
officials, managers and marshals wore the color of their society, blue or white. Because 
the chief marshal or chief ball manager represented the whole student body, not just his 
society, he wore both colors. When the University fielded its first intercollegiate athletic 
teams in 1888, the question of what colors to wear had already been answered. Light blue 
and white had come to symbolize membership in the University, not in a single society.

DEGREES WITH DISTINCTION 

To graduate with distinction or with highest distinction, undergraduate students must have 
completed at least 45 academic hours at UNC-Chapel Hill and have an overall grade point 
average of at least 3.5 or 3.8, respectively. 

UNDERGRADUATE HONORS PROGRAM 

The Honors Program offers exceptionally well-qualified first-year students, sophomores 
and juniors an opportunity to take part of their general education curriculum in special 
honors seminars and honors sections. Honors seminars are special topics courses, limited 
in enrollment to 15 students and taught by outstanding members of the University faculty. 
Honors sections of regular departmental course offerings are also limited in enrollment and 
are taught by permanent members of the University faculty. Honors seminars and sections 
emphasize critical reading, class discussion and expository writing. 

Senior departmental honors programs are provided for students who have demonstrated 
a very high level of scholastic ability and achievement and who desire to pursue an intensive, 
individualized program of study in their major discipline. Honors studies ordinarily consist 
of one or more of the following: the preparation of an honors thesis or essay, an independent 
research or reading program, an artistic performance or exhibition, or the completion of 
advanced course work in the major not normally required of students in that major. It is on 
the basis of participation in senior honors that a student may be graduated from the University 
“with Honors” or “with Highest Honors.”

COMMENCEMENT MUSIC 

The University’s beloved alma mater, “Hark the Sound,” 
evokes the feelings of loyalty and friendship that students, 
alumni and true blue Tar Heels everywhere have for 
Carolina. The orchestral marches that accompany the 
commencement processional are equally memorable for 
their power and splendor. They are truly fitting musical 
celebrations of the talent and achievements of UNC-Chapel 
Hill’s visiting dignitaries, faculty and graduates. 

During today’s commencement ceremony, members 
of the academic processional will be welcomed by 
the fanfare brass, woodwinds and drums of Nikolai 


Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Procession of the Nobles” and 
Richard Strauss’ “Konigsmarsch.” Rimsky-Korsakov wrote 
his majestic march to open the second act of the opera- 
ballet “Mlada,” which premiered in Saint Petersburg, 
Russia, in 1892. Strauss premiered the flourishing 
“Konigsmarsch” at a palace concert in Berlin in 1907. 

The new graduates will exit the ceremony while hear¬ 
ing familiar Carolina melodies in “Tar Heel Rhapsody,” 
a composition written specifically for the University that 
features its school songs.

THE BELL TOWER 

The Morehead-Patterson Memorial Bell Tower was given to 
the University in 1931 by John Motley Morehead III and Rufus 
Lenoir Patterson. Its 14-bell carillon rings both manually 
and electronically to call students to class, provide twilight 
music and serenade the dispersing crowd after football games. 
Rising 172 feet, the tower is surrounded by a hedge and lawn 
designed by William C. Coker, botany professor and creator 
of the campus Arboretum.

ACADEMIC DRESS 

The following information, based in part on An Academic Costume 
Code and Ceremony Guide (published by the American Council 
on Education), may be helpful in identifying academic attire worn 
during UNC’s Commencement exercises. 

degree candidates’ regalia. The University’s bachelor’s 
gown was redesigned this year by award-winning colorist and fashion 
designer Alexander Julian — a Chapel Hill native and UNC alumnus 
— to be both Carolina blue and truly green, as in sustainably made. 
The fabric for the new True Blue gown is made from 100 percent 
post-consumer recycled plastic bottles (23 bottles for each gown) 
and is manufactured at mills in the Carolinas. The information 
about the gowns sustainability is suitably printed directly on the 
cloth, without the use of an extra label. In addition to being dyed a 
custom Carolina blue color, the True Blue gowns also have a more 
streamlined fit, white piping along the yoke and two white panels in 
front. The new tassels are blue and white, topped with a silver-colored 
Old Well medallion. An optional accessory is an embroidered white 
stole that the graduate may give to a parent in gratitude after the 
Commencement ceremony. 

The untrimmed, black master’s gown has a hood and an oblong 
sleeve, open at the wrist, that hangs nearly to the ground; the back 
part of its oblong shape is square cut and the arc in the front is cut 
away. The hooded doctoral gown features three bars across each 
sleeve. In 1999, the Faculty Council authorized a special doctoral 
gown for Carolina graduates. It is Carolina blue, with facings and 
crossbars of dark blue outlined in white piping. The facings bear the 
shield of the University supported by the torches of learning. 

The hoods of master’s and doctoral degree candidates vary in 
color according to the field of study (see list below). 


faculty regalia. Faculty wear the regalia of the institution that 
conferred their highest degree. The doctoral gowns are usually faced 
with black velvet, although the color of the velvet may vary according 
to the field of study. Hoods, which differ in length according to the 
level of the degree held, are lined with official colors of the university 
or college that conferred the degree, usually with one color forming 
a chevron pattern over the other. Some colors you will see on faculty 
and administrators’ robes are, for example, the crimson of Harvard, 
the maroon of Chicago, the orange and black of Princeton, the dark 
blue of Yale, and the light blue and white of North Carolina. 

Like the hoods of master’s and doctoral degree candidates, 
faculty hoods are edged and bound with velvet in the color 
appropriate to the field of study. The colors in the hoods and gowns 
of faculty and administrators represent the following fields in which 
degrees were taken: 


apricot: Nursing 
brown: Fine Arts 
citron: Social Work 
crimson: Journalism 
dark blue: Philosophy 
golden yellow: Science 
green: Medicine 
lemon yellow: Library

light blue: Education 
lilac: Dentistry 
olive green: Pharmacy 
orange: Engineering

pink: Music 
purple: Law 
sage green: Physical

salmon pink: Public Health 
scarlet: Theology 
YELLOW BROWN:
