Honorary Degree
Stew Leonard Jr.
tew Leonard Jr. is president and CEO of Stew Leonard’s, a unique family-owned
and operated dairy and farm-fresh food store in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Since he took over as CEO in 1991, the company has grown to include two additional
stores in Connecticut and one in Yonkers, New York, as well as nine independently
owned wine stores in the tri-state area. A fifth grocery store is scheduled to open on
Long Island in 2016.
When Stew’s father—Stew Leonard Sr.—founded the dairy store in 1969, with just
seven employees, he never imagined the small enterprise would grow to become one of
the area’s most renowned grocery stores, with annual sales of almost $400 million and
close to 2,000 employees.
The New York Times has called Stew Leonard’s the “Disneyland of Dairy Stores”
because of its country-fair atmosphere, with costumed characters and a bevvy of singing
and dancing animatronic robots throughout the store. The company is in The Guinness
Book of World Records for having “the greatest sales per unit area of any single food
store in the United States.”
Stew Jr. earned an undergraduate degree from Ithaca College and an MBA in
marketing/finance from UCLA. The recipient of numerous awards and accolades,
including the Dale Carnegie Leadership Award and Retailer of the Year, Stew Jr. has
appeared on many national TV shows sharing his expertise and the store’s business
He and his wife, Kim, have four daughters. They started Stew Leonard III Children’s
Charities, which has raised millions to promote water safety among children.

Subject to review of all curricular requirements,
degrees will be conferred upon all candidates who
meet the graduation requirements. Included in
today’s ceremony are students who received their
degrees in January 2015 and those who expect to
complete their academic requirements by May or
October 2015.
Quinnipiac University
uinnipiac is a dynamic, three-campus university where professors who want to
know students by name come to teach, and where students who want a personal,
challenging education come to learn.
Located in Hamden and North Haven, Connecticut, Quinnipiac’s top-rated academics,
low faculty-to-student ratio and Division I athletics are just some of the reasons why it is
consistently ranked among the best universities by U.S. News & World Report and The
Princeton Review. It is one of 89 universities to have both a law school and a medical
school with the opening of the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine in 2013, and
its Polling Institute is respected by media organizations around the globe.
Faculty members are experts in their fields and generous with their time. The University
prepares undergraduate and graduate students for success in business, communications,
engineering, health, education, law, medicine, nursing and the liberal arts and sciences.
More than 75 programs are offered to 6,500 undergraduate and 2,500 graduate students.
Our facilities are first-rate. Students simulate the buying and selling of stocks in the
Terry W. Goodwin ’67 Financial Technology Center, produce news packages in the
fully digital, high-definition broadcast studio and study how the human body moves in
the motion analysis laboratory.
Quinnipiac’s 250-acre Mount Carmel Campus, next to Sleeping Giant State Park,
contains academic buildings that primarily support undergraduate programs and
residence halls. The nearby 250-acre York Hill Campus houses the TD Bank Sports
Center, more residence halls, and the Rocky Top Student Center. A third 104-acre
campus in North Haven serves as home to all of the University’s graduate programs.
Throughout its rich history, Quinnipiac has remained true to its three core values:
high-quality academic programs, a student-oriented environment and a strong sense of
M ace
he mace—a symbol of authority—has antecedents in both Roman and Medieval
history. The Roman mace (fasces) was carried by a lictor before the chief magistrate
of the city, as well as before the legions. During the Middle Ages, the mace (mateola),
a weapon of war, became first a symbol of victory and then a symbol of authority.
The mace emblazoned with the Great Seal of England became a symbol of authority
in Parliament by the end of the 13th century. It is this form of the mace that was the
prototype of those symbols of authority, not only of legislative bodies, but also of cities
and universities.
In 1246, following some 20 years of strife, the University of Paris was finally conceded
the right to its own common seal. Since then, the use of the seal engraved on the
mace has come to symbolize the authority of the academic community. In July 2000,
Quinnipiac commissioned the noted sculptor Robert Meyer of Westport, Conn., to
design and execute a new mace that reflects our name change to Quinnipiac University.
Cast in bronze, the mace incorporates elements of the University seal.
The medallion (medal of office), like the mace and the seal, is also a symbol of
authority. It is possible that its roots may be traced back to the Roman “bulla” (a gold
amulet of honor). The obverse of the medallion shows the seal of the office the wearer
holds—in our case, the seal of the University. Not infrequently, the reverse would
show the personal seal or coat of arms of the bearer. Since the High Middle Ages, the
medallion has been worn by such officials as the chancellors of England, mayors of
cities, and rectors of universities, and came to signify the high personal position such
figures occupied in their respective governments.
During the Renaissance, medallion design reached unique artistic heights, and in
certain portraits the medallion was given particular prominence. The medallion is worn
by the University’s president. The Quinnipiac medal showcases the University seal,
sculpted in relief and cast in bronze.

Academic R egalia
he pageantry and dress of the academic procession have been inherited from the
medieval universities of the 11th and 12th centuries.
Academic life as we know it today began in the Middle Ages, first in the Church, then
in the guilds. The teaching guild was the guild of the Master of Arts, where Bachelor
was the apprentice of the Master, and the dress was the outward sign of privilege and
responsibility. Principal features of the academic dress are the gown, the cap and the
hood. Both Oxford and Cambridge universities, since the 15th century, have made
academic dress a matter of university control, even to its minor details, and have
repeatedly revised regulations. American universities agreed on a definite system in
1895. In 1932, the American Council on Education presented a revised code, which for
the most part, governs the style of academic dress today.
The Gown: The flowing gown comes from the 12th century. While it originally may
have been worn as protection against the cold of unheated buildings, today it has
become sym­bolic of the democracy of scholarship, for it covers any dress of rank or
social standing. It is black for all degrees, with pointed sleeves for the bachelor’s degree,
long closed sleeves with a slit at the arm or wrist for the master’s degree, and full bell
sleeves for the doctoral degree. Bachelor’s and master’s degree gowns have no trimming.
For the doctor’s degree the gown is faced down the front with velvet and has three bars
of velvet across the sleeves in the color distinctive of the faculty or discipline to which
the degree pertains.
The Cap: When Rome freed the slaves, they won the privilege of wearing caps.
The academic cap is a sign of freedom of scholarship and the responsibility and dignity
with which scholarship endows the wearer. Old poetry records the cap of scholarship as
square to symbolize the book.
The Hood: The hood is trimmed with one or more chevrons of a secondary color on
the ground of the primary color of the college. The color facing the hood denotes the
discipline represented by the degree. The color of the lining designates the college or
university from which the degree was granted.
The colors associated with the different disciplines are:
