Faculty tassels and hoods

At Indiana University, faculty members who have received a Ph.D. wear royal blue hoods and gold tassels.

Faculty members who have received other doctoral degrees wear hoods and tassels reflecting their disciplines. Faculty members who have received bachelor’s or master’s degrees wear the hoods of their fields, and black tassels on their caps.
