Image of presidential gown rendering

The presidential gown was designed by faculty members from Marist's Fashion Design program. It has four sleeve bars instead of the usual three of a doctoral robe. The primary color of the gown is Marist red, framed by standard black panels adorned with an embroidered "M" from the college’s seal and Main Gate. The hood also features Marist red and includes a white chevron. During the inauguration ceremony, the president will remove the robes associated with his earned degree and don the Marist College presidential gown.
