Southern Illinois University 


August 4, 2001 


August 4, 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 the SIU 
Arena either by degree candidates or guests. Security personnel will be 
on hand to deal with alcohol or other distracting objects. 

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.

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:
