Stole of Gratitude

Capella is offering a Stole of Gratitude. The Stole, which you present to a person (or persons) of your choosing, provides the opportunity for you to thank someone who has provided extraordinary help or support during your studies with this lasting symbol of gratitude. You should present the Stole to the recipient of your choosing before the commencement ceremony by placing it around his or her neck. The recipient will then wear the Stole to the commencement ceremony, where others can recognize the distinguished group of supporters throughout the room. The Stole of Gratitude will be available on site at the Jostens display area at Commencement. The Stole of Gratitude can be ordered through the Jostens website.

Note about Doctoral Regalia:

Doctoral gowns carry three velvet bands around each sleeve above the elbow. Hoods are made of the same materials as the gowns, the length varying with the degree. The lining of the hood identifies the highest degree-granting university by its colors. Capella University regalia school colors are purple and old gold.

The border of the hood indicates the academic disciplines in which the degree is earned:

Royal Blue ... Doctoral
Drab … Business
Lemon Yellow ... Technology
Light Blue … Education
Peacock Blue ... Public Service Leadership
Apricot ... Nursing
Salmon Pink ... Health
