Sablay

upou1 One of the benefits of getting a doctoral degree at the University of the Philippines Open University is that you get to own and wear a sablay hood. While the ordinary sablay is a sash, the sablay hood is a sablay sewn together into a hood with a medallion.  (The picture on the left shows me wearing both a sablay and a sablay hood as well as a Chancellor’s List medal.) Although the sablay hood is the academic dress for doctoral degree holders in UPOU, I’m not sure if the other constituent universities in the University of the Philippines system also use it.
