The Speaker at MIT's commencement.
Subject: Attire for June 5 Commencement - Message for All Students
From: tha@MIT.EDU (Thomas H. Adams)
Please post in your respective DLC's as appropriate.
There has been some recent controversy surrounding appropriate attire
for Commencement. Normally, the Office of the Dean for Student
Affairs would not need to take a position on this issue. However, it
seems that a substantial number of female students are considering a
suggestive and offensive form of dress.
It therefore is necessary for the Office of the Dean for Student
Affairs to declare that the wearing of black berets and kneepads by
alumnae-to-be at graduation is hereby forbidden.
This dress code will be strictly enforced for all participants in the
commencement procession. No exceptions or exemptions will be made.
