b. Dr. Staton announced that Ph.D. candidates would not be hooded during the morning commencement ceremony and asked for reactions from deans concerning where the most appropriate place to hood these candidates would be-in a separate Friday ceremony or with the candidate's college or school on Saturday. As Dean of the Graduate School, Dr. Eftink noted his objection and indicated that since the decision has been made, either alternative for hooding the Ph.D. candidates seems appropriate.
