May 14 and 15, 1999 

The commencement ceremony is an important occasion not only for you but for other 
graduates, families, and friends. Although it is a happy time, it should not be a time of 
revelry. Your conduct at the ceremony should be dignified. Alcoholic beverages may not 
be brought into either the SIU Arena or Shryock Auditorium either by degree candidates 
or guests. Security personnel will be on hand to deal with alcohol or other distracting 

Professional photographers will be taking two photographs of each graduate as he or she 
crosses the stage. Each graduate will receive a proof print of each of those shots at no 
charge, and will have the opportunity to purchase additional copies or various 
photograph packages at a reasonable cost. 

Southern Illinois University Carbondale 

When its doors were first opened in 1874, Southern Illinois University Carbondale was a 
place where teachers and scholars believed that their graduates should be prepared to 
make useful contributions to the health and strength of society. This is still our intention. 
Outstanding departments, dedicated faculty, thorough and often inspired instruction, and 
a thoughtful blending of old wisdom with new knowledge have become the hallmarks of 
the University. 

Because this is true, we can point with pride to our alumni, many of whom are 
distinguished scholars, business leaders, artists, and public servants, and many more of 
whom are essential to organizations and communities throughout the nation. 
Knowing that classroom learning is only one facet of education, we help students learn to 
play through intramural sports, training in crafts, outdoor activities for individuals and 
groups, a variety of musical organizations; learn to help themselves through wellness 
education, physical fitness training, and counseling; learn to help others through 
fraternal, community service, political, and volunteer groups; learn to see and know their 
surroundings through hands-on projects, field trips, lectures, and excursions of their own. 
In encouraging students to explore the avenues and byways of knowledge and 
experience, our aim is to expand their view of the world in such a way that, while they 
focus on the particulars of their careers, they will be able to see their lives and their work 
in the broad context of the communities and the world.

Distinguished Service Award 

Marcia L. Bullard 

Marcia L. Bullard (Journalism '74) is President, CEO and Editor of USA Weekend, 
America's second most widely circulated magazine. Ms. Bullard was a founding Editor 
of USA Today, and she has been employed by the Gannett organization most of her 
professional career. 

In 1998, she was recipient of the Revlon Business Woman of the Year Award. George 
Fellows, Revlon's President and Chief Executive Office stated "Marcia Bullard is surely 
an inspiration to young women who seek to make their mark in journalism, or any 
profession, and at the same time give back their knowledge and spirit to the community." 

Her memberships include the Newspaper Association of America, the American 
Society of Newspaper Editors, and she is a former board member of the Associated Press 
Managing Editors. Ms. Bullard has taught college journalism and regularly performs 
volunteer work. 

While Ms. Bullard has made a meteoric rise in the journalism world, she continues to 
support her alma mater. She serves on the Advisory Board of the College of Mass 
Communication and Media Arts, and returns to campus twice each year. In addition to 
being supportive of journalism students entering the profession, she endowed a 
scholarship in the School of Journalism. 

In recognition of her outstanding achievements, service, and dedication, Southern 
Illinois University Carbondale finds it fitting and proper to present the Distinguished 
Service Award to Marcia L. Bullard. 

Distinguished Service Award 

James W. Neckers 

James W. Neckers graduated from Hope College and earned a Ph.D. at the University of 
Illinois in 1927. Dr. Neckers joined the faculty at Southern Illinois University and 
became Chairman of the Department of Chemistry two years later. He served as 
Chairman of the Department of Chemistry for thirty-six years and retired from SIUC in 

During his tenure at SIUC, Dr. Neckers led the Department of Chemistry from a small 
department of four faculty to a department of twenty-four faculty. Dr. Neckers guided the 
department through its first American Chemical Society accreditation. Under Neckers' 
leadership, the department added the M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs. Additionally, he 
played the lead role in designing the Parkinson Laboratory. 

Dr. Neckers served as President of the Illinois Academy of Science and actively 
served as a member of the Illinois Teachers Association, National Teachers Association, 
and the American Chemical Society. 

He was a leader who constantly strove to better the welfare of the University, as was 
demonstrated by his support for faculty participation in University affairs and by his 
helping to establish the first Faculty Council. 

Awards received by Dr. Neckers included the Alumni Association's Great Teacher 
Award in 1966 and a Distinguished Alumni Award from Hope College in 1996. His 
former students remember him with great respect and admiration. Even after retirement, 
he continues to be an active participant in the Department of Chemistry and 
Biochemistry, attending weekly research seminars, and contributing to an endowment in 
his name which funds scholarships for students and speaker visits. 

In recognition of his contributions, outstanding achievements, service, and 
distinguished leadership record, Southern Illinois University Carbondale finds it fitting 
and proper to present the Distinguished Service Award to James W. Neckers. 

Honorary Degree 

Doctor of Humane Letters 

Mark Victor Hansen 

Mark Victor Hansen earned his undergraduate degree at Southern Illinois University 
Carbondale. He majored in Speech Communication and graduated in 1970. During his 
time in Carbondale, he worked as a research assistant for Buckminster Fuller, who taught 
him to think " comprehensively and anticipatorially" . Mr. Hansen also completed some 
graduate work in the College of Education and in the Design Department. The 
preparation Hansen received at SIUC enabled him to pursue graduate studies at Golden 
State University in California where some of his classmates were notables such as Gene 
Roddenbury, the creator of the Star Trek series, and Jess Stern, a best-selling author. 

Mr. Hansen founded his own company, Mark Victor Hansen & Associates, which has 
developed into one of the nation's premier speaking companies. Over the last twenty- 
four years in his career as a motivational speaker, Hansen has delivered over five 
thousand speeches to well over two million people in thirty-six nations. In addition, 
Hansen's company has created numerous motivational audio tapes and other specialty 

In 1990, Mr. Hansen and his partner Jack Canfield began a writing project that 
culminated in the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book. That single book, which was 
published in 1993, has since blossomed into an empire with seventeen different Chicken 
Soup titles currently in print and twenty-seven million copies sold. 

Mr. Hansen is a widely known inspirational speaker who has made a real difference in 
the lives of many thousands of people. He is also a living example of his teachings. in his 
book, The Miracle of Tithing, Hansen points out that giving to others has multiplying 
benefits, rewards, and joys. In keeping with this view, a portion of the royalties of all of 
his book sales is designated to support charities, such as the Arbor Foundation. One of 
Hansen's goals is to re-forest the planet through the planting of 18 billion additional 
trees. His challenge to the publishing industry is to plant as many trees as they use in the 
printing of their books, magazines, and newspapers. 

In recognition of his contributions, outstanding achievements, service, and 
distinguished leadership record, Southern Illinois University Carbondale finds it fitting 
and proper to present the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters to Mark Victor

Academic Regalia 

The academic regalia, consisting of cap, gown, and hood, originated about the twelfth 
century and was worn primarily for warmth. Later, the material of the gown and lining 
and shape of the hood represented the economic and social as well as the academic status 
of the wearer. 

In 1895, a commission of American educators established an inter-collegiate code for the 
academic regalia. This code, revised in 1932 and again in 1960, provides a 
comprehensive system of academic regalia for American colleges and universities. While 
the code specifies black gowns, foreign universities and a growing number of American 
universities have gowns of various colors. 

There are three types of gowns and hoods — the bachelor's, master's, and doctor's. The 
bachelor's gown is untrimmed and has a closed front and long pointed sleeves. Women 
may wear a white collar with the bachelor's gown when no hood is worn. The master's 
gown is untrimmed, may be worn open or closed, and has extremely long, closed sleeves 
with an opening at the wrist. The end of the sleeves are square with an arc extending 
from the wrist opening to the square end. The doctor's gown may be worn open or closed 
and has round, bell-shaped sleeves. There are wide velvet borders down the front and 
three velvet bars on each sleeve; the borders and bars may be black or the color of the 
discipline of the degree. 

The hood for each degree has a distinctive form. The bachelor's hood is three feet in 
length and has a narrow velvet edging with little of the lining exposed. The master's 
hood is three and one-half feet in length with wider velvet edging and more of the lining 
exposed. The doctor's hood is four feet in length with the widest velvet edging and full 
exposure of the lining. Hoods are lined with the color(s) of the college or university 
conferring the degree. The color of the velvet edging identifies the discipline of the 

The black mortarboard cap is standard in the United States, although soft tarns are worn 
at some universities. Tassels are usually black, except when no hood is worn, in which 
case the color of the tassel represents the field of study. Doctor's caps may have gold 
tassels. Upon conferral of the degree the tassel is worn on the left of the cap. Caps are 
considered part of the academic regalia and are customarily removed only during prayer, 
oath, or pledge, and then by men only. 


Colors of Tassels and Hoods 

In the United States the hood is edged with the color of the field of study and lined with 

the colors of the university conferring the degree. Southern Illinois University
