The mace is symbolic of the faculty’s service to the university, its students, and the greater society. The faculty member designated as Macebearer is usually one who has exhibited a longstanding commitment and service to the university community. The Macebearer carries the university’s mace in all academic processions. The first person designated as Macebearer was Dr. George Schweitzer (chemistry). Originally, the Macebearer was the faculty member chosen by Phi Kappa Phi as its annual lecturer.
