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.

The commencement ceremony is an important occasion not only for you but also 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 ei- 
ther 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.

Academic Regalia 

The academic regalia, consisting of cap, gown, and hood, originated about the twelfth century and were 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:
