Karen Steckol Academic Regalia Loan Project

To encourage the participation of faculty at commencement exercises, the Faculty Senate has assembled a collection of academic regalia. This project was initiated by the late Dr. Karen Steckol, former President of the Faculty Senate, and Professor and Chair of the Department of Communicative Disorders; in her memory the program was named the Karen Steckol Academic Regalia Loan Program.

The regalia are maintained by the Senate and loaned to faculty on a first-come, first-served basis immediately prior to each commencement ceremony.

Contact Linda Knowles (lknowles@cba.UA.edu) to make an appointment to donate, return or pick up regalia. Regalia should be returned as soon as possible following Commencement.  Office location is 116 Martha Parham West.  Phone number is 205-348-6635 or 205-391-7504
