Moving-Up Day, a spring tradition during which one class would symbolically move up to the next rank, was inaugurated at Clarkson in 1923. In 1929, a new organization was formed to recognize campus leaders by tapping them for membership at Moving-Up Day ceremonies. The organization was called Phalanx because the ancient definition of that word signified formation by ranks, and these chosen individuals ranked high in the affairs of campus. Since then, induction into that organization has become Clarkson's most significant formal recognition of campus leaders. In 1991, University Recognition Day became the official designation for the day on which academic departments offer awards to top students and Phalanx gives its commendable service and leadership awards and inducts its newest members. This is just one of many Clarkson University traditions.

University Recognition Day was held this year on Sunday, April 14, 2013.
