Shirley Chisholm made history in 1972 by campaigning for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. She was the first black woman to seek the nation’s highest office. Chisholm represented her New York district in the United States House of Representatives from 1969 to 1982. She was the senior Democratic woman in the House and the only woman and only black American to sit on the powerful House Rules Committee. She also served on the House Education and Labor Committee and was a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Chisholm earned national recognition for her efforts on behalf of black Americans, compensatory education, minimum wage for domestics, Indian Americans, the Haitian refugees, migrant farmworkers, and the poor. Her fierce individualism earned her a reputation as a maverick, an independent trait reflected in the title of her autobiography, Unbought and Unbossed. She is also the author of The Good Fight, the story of her 1972 bid for the presidency.
In February 1982, Representative Chisholm announced that she would not seek reelection to Congress and that she was dedicating herself to creating a new national state of mind that demands peace, prosperity, and equality for all Americans. She has since remained in the public eye as a writer, lecturer, and teacher. Chisholm’s educational background includes a bachelor of arts degree (which she earned cum laude) from Columbia University as well as a master’s degree in education and a diploma in administration from Columbia. She has been awarded honorary degrees from many prestigious colleges and universities.
High Distinction is accorded each graduating senior whose grade point average is 3.75 or higher. Distinction is bestowed upon seniors who graduate with an overall average between 3.50 and 3.75.
These designations in the Commencement program have been based on seven semesters of academic accomplishment, since final grades have not yet been tabulated. Students achieving the mark of Distinction or High Distinction during their final semester’s work will have this honor indicated on their diplomas and final transcripts.
In every university there are those rare faculty members who distinguish themselves and the university through their unique and scholarly contributions of national and international dimension. Beginning this year, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas will present a Distinguished Professor Award to an exceptional faculty member as a means of encouraging truly outstanding performance, enhancing the University’s national reputation, and rewarding the service of those who are making this University a greater institution by enriching the knowledge and the lives of its students.
The 1988 award will be presented by President Maxson at Commencement to Dr. James Deacon, a distinguished professor of biological sciences who is marking his twentieth-eighth year at the University.

The Nevada Centennial Medallion is presented annually to the graduating senior earning the highest four-year scholastic average at UNLV. Due to the early date of Commencement this year, it is impossible to determine by the time of the ceremony the name of the student who has achieved this award for 1988.
However, as soon as all grades have been checked and verified, the 1988 recipient will be identified and presented the medallion at a special ceremony.
One-hundred-and-one medallions were given to the university by the Rotary Club of Las Vegas at the time of the state's centennial celebration in 1964. The last medallion will be awarded in 2064, the year of Nevada's two hundredth birthday.
Previous recipients are listed below in descending order from 1987 to 1964.

Graduating seniors who have been initiated into UNLV's chapter of Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society are presented with bronze medallions hung on a scarlet cord to wear at the Commencement exercises. Each year Chapter 100 at UNLV invites to membership the top 10 percent of the senior class and the top 5 percent of the junior class in all academic disciplines.
The Presidential Medallion is the official insignia of the President's Office and is worn at Commencement and other ceremonial occasions. It was a gift to the university from the Student Senate and Activities Board of the Consolidated Students of the University of Nevada (CSUN).
Cast of sterling silver, the medallion embodies the official seal of the State of Nevada. Links of the chain carry the names of current and former presidents of the university with their terms of office, and symbolize the continuity of responsibility in the office.
The University Mace, which has its traditions deeply rooted in history, is carried on ceremonial occasions at the head of the academic procession by the Grand Marshal, whose symbolic duty is the protection of the university, its persons and its processes.
Originally a weapon, the earliest mace was made of iron and was capable of breaking armor. Bishops, forbidden by canon law to bear swords, sometimes took the mace with them into battle. The mace consisted of a long club with a ball of iron, steel or brass at one end, and was used in warfare as late as the 16th century.
The use of the mace as an instrument of ceremony, however, began about' the year 1250 in England and France, and is still used widely today in university commencement programs as well as in governmental ceremonies.
The UNLV Mace has been cast from polished metal and features a black hardwood staff. Facets of the cubical top embody the university’s seal; a symbolic depiction of the Statue of Liberty; a likeness of Renaissance scholar Leonardo da Vinci, representing the integration of knowledge from many fields; and a shelf of books flanked by artists’ brushes.
The mace bearer today is Mrs. Alice Mason, associate professor of physical education, who recently marked her thirtieth year with the University of Nevada System.
The history of academic dress reaches far back into the early days of the oldest universities. It appears that academic clothing was first introduced and worn at Cambridge and Oxford Universities in the thirteenth centuries.
The European custom was carried to America with the establishment of our own colleges and universities. In 1895 an academic code of dress was adopted, and the standards were accepted by most of the colleges and universities in the United States. Today, the black robe, hood, and cap are generally worn.
Three different types of black gowns may be distinguished in the academic procession. The bachelors’ gowns have long pointed sleeves; the masters’ gowns have oblong sleeves with an arc cut away in the front. The doctors’ gowns are faced with velvet and have bell-shaped sleeves with three bars of velvet.
The Oxford cap, the so-called mortarboard, is black and has a long tassel fastened to the middle of the top that is worn pendant over the left front of the cap. The hood, draped from the shoulder, denotes by its length and colors the degree and the institution which conferred the degree.
