Southern Illinois University 


May 11 and 12, 2001 


May 11 and 12,2001 

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 1 874, 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 

Paul Simon 

Paul Simon was born November 29, 1928, in Eugene, Oregon. He attended the 
University of Oregon and Dana College in Blair, Nebraska. At the age of 19, Simon 
became the nation's youngest editor-publisher when he accepted a local Lion's Club 
challenge to save the Troy Tribune in Troy, Illinois, near St. Louis. He built a chain of 13 
newspapers in southern and central Illinois, which he sold in 1966 to devote full-time to 
public service and writing. 

Simon served two years, 1951-53, in the U.S. Army and was assigned to the Counter- 
intelligence Corps as a special agent along the Iron Curtain in Europe. 

He was elected to the Illinois House in 1954 and to the Illinois Senate in 1962. During 
his 14 years in the legislature, he won the Independent Voters of Illinois' "Best 
Legislator Award" every session. He was chief sponsor of the state's Open Meetings 
Law and of legislation creating the Illinois Arts Council, and he played a leading role in 
chartering the state's community college system. 

Simon was elected lieutenant governor in 1968 and was the first in the state's history 
to be elected to that post with a governor of another party. In that office he became the 
people's ombudsman and is widely credited with turning what had been a ceremonial 
position into one focused on making government better serve its citizens. 

After narrowly losing the 1972 Democratic gubernatorial primary to Dan Walker, 
Simon started the public affairs reporting program at Sangamon State University in 
Springfield, Illinois (now the University of Illinois at Springfield), and lectured during 
the 1972-73 school year at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard 

Simon was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1974 and served Illinois' 
22nd and 24th Congressional Districts for 10 years. During his service in the House, 
Simon played a leading role in drafting and enacting major legislation in a wide range of 
issue areas including education, disability policy and foreign affairs. He was chief 
sponsor of the Missing Children Act and of subsequent legislation that established the 
National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He helped win passage of the bill 
that created both the Illinois-Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor and the 
extension to Illinois of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, the national park 
associated with St. Louis' Gateway Arch. He was the chief House advocate for the 
nation's so-called "atomic veterans" and their families. Always known as an effective 
legislator, Simon, according to Time magazine, passed more amendments in 1983 than 
any other member of the House of Representatives. While in the House, he worked 
closely with former Speaker Newt Gingrich in establishing the office of house historian. 

In 1984, Simon upset three-term incumbent Charles Percy to win election to the U.S. 
Senate. In 1987-88, he sought the Democratic nomination for president. He won re- 
election to the U.S. Senate in 1990. Enacted education and job training laws Simon wrote 
include the National Literacy Act, the School-To- Work Opportunities Act, the Job 
Training Partnership Act amendments, several provisions of the Goals 2000 Act and the 
1994 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. He was the 
leading Senate champion of the new direct college loan program. He was chief 
Democratic sponsor of the balanced budget amendment. The drive he spearheaded to 
curb television violence led to the first joint standards on violence by the broadcast 

networks, the Parental Advisory System and the new independent monitoring programs 
launched by the broadcast and cable networks in 1994. Legislation he initiated led to the 
designation of the first five federally chartered future, high-speed rail corridors, including 
the St. Louis-Chicago-Detroit/Milwaukee corridor. 

During his years as a public official, Paul Simon was known for exceptional 
constituent service. His office handled more cases each year than almost any other Senate 
office. He also was the Senate's pacesetter in convening town meetings. As a senator, 
Simon held more than 600 town meetings throughout the state, more than any U.S. 
senator from Illinois in the state's history. 

In November 1994, as Illinois' leading statewide Democratic officeholder and with 
the strongest political standing of his public service career, Paul Simon announced that 
he would retire from the Senate when his term expired January 3, 1997. 

Simon holds 52 honorary degrees and has written 19 books. He is currently a 
professor at Southern Illinois University, where he teaches classes in political science, 
history and journalism. Simon is also founder and director of the Public Policy Institute 
at the Carbondale campus. His service contributions are widespread and beneficiaries 
include academic departments, colleges, SIU, southern Illinois, the state, the nation, and 
the world. 

Senator Simon's most recent contributions to American society come through the 
action the Public Policy Institute has taken on major policy issues. The Institute's 
recommendations on addressing the proliferation of prison building in America without 
compromising public safety stirred interest in several states and at the national level. The 
Institute also convened religious leaders from throughout the nation, including Pat 
Robertson and the heads of the Unitarian-Universalist Congregations, to develop 
recommendations on how the religious community and individual churches could address 
poverty in America. Those recommendations have kindled interest throughout the nation 
and in the White House itself. The Institute has also focused on international issues such 
as the recent genocide in Rwanda and the evolving relationship between China and 
Taiwan. The Institute has gained a reputation for addressing tough issues and spurring 
action and is a direct link to a better future for the average American. 

In recognition of his outstanding achievements, service, and dedication, Southern 
Illinois University Carbondale finds it fitting and proper to present the Distinguished 
Service Award to Paul Simon. 

Honorary Degree 

Doctor of Humane Letters 

Oscar Arias 

Oscar Arias, former President of Costa Rica and 1987 Nobel Peace Laureate, holds 
international stature as a spokesperson for the Third World. Championing such issues as 
human development, democracy, and demilitarization, he has traveled the globe 
spreading a message of peace and applying the lessons garnered from the Central 
American Peace Process to topics of current global debate. The New York Times 
reported that Oscar Arias' "...positions on Central American issues have become the 
standards by which many people in Congress and elsewhere have come to judge United 
States policy." In a similar way, he has come to take a leading position in international 

Dr. Arias was born in Heredia, Costa Rica in 1940. He studied Law and Economics at 
the University of Costa Rica. His thesis, Grupos de Presion en Costa Rica (Pressure 
Groups in Costa Rica) earned him the 1971 National Essay Prize. In 1974, he received a 
doctoral degree in Political Science at the University of Essex, England. After serving as 
Professor of Political Science at the University of Costa Rica, Dr. Arias was appointed 
Costa Rican Minister of Planning and Economic Policy. He won a seat in Congress in 
1978 and was elected secretary-general of the National Liberation Party in 1981. In 1986, 
Oscar Arias was elected president of Costa Rica. 

Dr. Arias assumed office at a time of great regional discord. Despite the previous 
presidential administration's decision not to become embroiled in the growing conflict, 
Costa Rica's involvement seemed almost unavoidable. In the face of these threats, Arias 
intensified his efforts to promote peace. Before assuming the presidency, he traveled 
throughout Central and South America to personally invite the Latin American heads of 
state to visit Costa Rica for his presidential inauguration. On the day Arias took office, 
the presidents of nine Latin American countries met in San Jose. In this meeting Arias 
called for a continental alliance for the defense of democracy and liberty. He affirmed 
that all Central Americans were entitled to the same liberties and social and economic 
guarantees of democracy, that each nation had the right to select, through free and fair 
elections, the type of government that could best meet the needs and interests of its 
people, and that neither armies nor totalitarian regimes were entitled to make this 
decision. At that moment Costa Rica, led by Oscar Arias, assumed an active role in the 
search for democracy and peace for the countries of the region. 

In 1987, President Arias drafted a peace plan to end the regional crisis. Widely 
recognized as the Arias Peace Plan, his initiative culminated in the signing of the 
Esquipulas II Accords, or the Procedure to Establish a Firm and Lasting Peace in Central 
America, by all the Central American presidents on August 7, 1987. In that same year he 
was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. 

In 1988, Arias used the monetary award from the Nobel Peace Prize to establish the 
Arias Foundation for Peace and Human Progress. Under the auspices of the Foundation, 
three programs were established: The Center for Human Progress to promote equal 
opportunities for women and gender equality; the Center for Organized Participation to 
strengthen the participation and action of civil society in Central America; and the Center 
for Peace and Reconciliation to work for demilitarization and conflict resolution in the 
developing world. From these headquarters, Dr. Arias has continued his pursuit of global 
peace and human security. 

Dr. Arias has received honorary doctorates from universities such as Harvard, 
Washington, Illinois, Oviedo, Franklin and Marshall, and Southern Connecticut; the 

colleges of Dartmouth, Ithaca, and Quinnipiac; and several other prestigious educational 
institutions. He has also received numerous prizes, among them the Jackson Ralston 
Prize, the Prince of Asturias Award, the Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Award, the Albert 
Schweitzer Humanitarian Award, the Liberty Medal of Philadelphia, and the Americas 

Oscar Arias participates actively in several international organizations. He is the 
president of the International Press Service (IPS), and serves on the Board of Directors of 
the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the International Center 
for Human Rights and Democratic Development (ICHRDD), and the Institute for 
International Studies at Stanford University. Dr. Arias also serves on the Board for the 
Inter Action Council, the International Negotiation Network of the Carter Center, and 
Transparency International. In addition, he is an active member of the Commission on 
Global Governance, the Inter-American Dialogue, and the Society for International 

While Oscar Arias is best known for his international efforts, he was also lauded for 
his very capable management of the Costa Rican economy during his presidential term. 
Under his leadership, Costa Rica's economy thrived and served as a model for 
neighboring countries. The superior economic growth was balanced by a strong social 
welfare program which included, among other projects, an initiative to provide housing 
to the poor. 

Since the conclusion of his term of office in 1990, Dr. Arias has continued to be "a 
man of the people" promoting such innovative ideas as human security, human 
development, and global governance. By bringing human concerns to the forefront of the 
international agenda, he provides a crucial link between the impoverished South and the 
developed North, between the more politically stable West and a conflict-ridden East. To 
the people of industrialized countries, he carries a sincere message of solidarity and 
partnership, in order to initiate a new era of peace and prosperity for all human kind. 

An unequivocal example of this solidarity is shown in Dr. Arias' commitment to 
curtail the global arms trade. On May 29, he met with seven other Nobel Peace laureates 
to publicly unveil an International Code of Conduct on Arms Transfers. Dr. Arias' 
proposal stipulates that any country wishing to purchase arms must meet certain criteria, 
including the promotion of democracy, the protection of human rights, and transparency 
in military spending. It would also prohibit arms sales to nations that support terrorism 
and to states that are engaged in aggression against other nations or peoples. Current 
initiatives to restrict arms sales in the United States and the European Union represent a 
first step toward Dr. Arias' mission for peace. 

In addition to the Code, Dr. Arias encourages preventive diplomacy to avert regional 
arms races and conflict. He strongly advocates the Year 2000 Campaign to Redirect 
World Military Spending to Human Development, which calls upon the United Nations 
to send special envoys to different sites of potential international conflict. Furthermore, 
Dr. Arias recently proposed to all Heads of State in the hemisphere that they endorse a 
two-year moratorium on the purchase of high-tech weapons. To date, 24 leaders have 
agreed to this moratorium. This measure would further increase peace and human 
development in Latin America - already the world's first nuclear-free zone. 

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 Oscar Arias.

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, 1969 and again in 1989, 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 four types of gowns and hoods — the associate's, bachelor's, master's, and 
doctor's. The associate and bachelor's gowns are the same except for a slight difference 
in color, untrimmed and have 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 ends 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 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 degree. 

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 
Carbondale's hoods are lined in maroon with a white chevron. Tassel and/or velvet hood 
colors, representing the fields of study, worn by students and faculty in the academic 
processional are:
