POTSDAM — Clarkson University trustees modeled some new duds at commencement Saturday with the introduction of the university’s new academic regalia.

The new regalia is a black robe with green and gold trim, honoring Clarkson’s school colors.

A cap with eight sides, instead of the normal six sides, signifies Clarkson’s eight core values: teamwork, caring, integrity, vision, diversity, service, growth and diligence.

The robe, cap and hood are worn at formal events and symbolize the institution where one received a doctorate.

Clarkson debuted the new look Saturday after more than a year of planning.
