Southern Illinois University (known colloquially as SIU or SIU Carbondale) is a public research university located in Carbondale, Illinois, United States. Founded in 1869, SIU is the flagship campus of the Southern Illinois University system.[4] The university enrolls students from all 50 states and more than 100 countries and offers 192 undergraduate, 80 master’s and 32 doctoral programs in addition to professional degrees in law and medicine.[5]

History[edit]

The Pulliam Hall clock tower has a carillon that is regularly played. This landmark tower has been incorporated into the logo of Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

An Act of the Twenty-sixth General Assembly of Illinois, approved March 9, 1869, created Southern Illinois Normal College, the second state-supported normal school in Illinois.[6] Carbondale held the ceremony of cornerstone laying, May 17, 1870.[7] It began with twelve academic departments and an initial class of 1,143.

The university continued primarily as a teacher's college until Delyte W. Morris took office as president of the university in 1948. Morris was SIU's longest-serving president (1948–1970).[8] During his presidency, Morris transformed SIU, adding Colleges of Law, Medicine and Dentistry. Since World War II, higher education has been emphasized as a goal for more students. Southern Illinois University grew rapidly in size from 3,500 to over 24,800 students between 1950 and 1991.[9]

In 1957, a second campus of SIU was established at Edwardsville. This school, now known as Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, is an independent university within the SIU system.

Leadership[edit]

Randy Dunn is the eighth president of the Southern Illinois University System. Dr. Dunn served as president at two other state institutions and was the state superintendent of education, appointed to that role by the Illinois State Board of Education. His career in education includes classroom teaching, serving as principal at two school districts, serving as superintendent for two Illinois school systems, and holding the rank of professor at two universities including SIUC. Dr. Dunn has served on a number of committees, councils and task forces, and he contributes to a variety of scholarly publications. Dunn received his doctorate in educational administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1991. He graduated from Illinois State University with a master’s in administration and foundations in 1983, and the B.S. in education in 1980. Before coming to Southern Illinois, he served as president at two other state institutions — Murray State University in Kentucky (2006-2013) and Youngstown State University in Ohio (2013-2014). Before that, Dunn was the state superintendent of education, appointed to that role by the Illinois State Board of Education. He is not a stranger to the SIU System, having held the rank of professor in the Department of Educational Administration and Higher Education at SIUC. Dunn started at the Carbondale campus as an associate professor in 1995 and was named department chair in 2000, before leaving to assume the state superintendency. During his term as chair, he also taught in the joint doctoral program in educational leadership at SIU Edwardsville. Dunn began his academic career as an assistant professor in the Department of Leadership at The University of Memphis for two years before taking his faculty post at Southern Illinois University. [10]

Dr. William Bradley Colwell became interim chancellor of SIU Carbondale October 1, 2015. He also serves as a professor in the university’s Department of Educational Administration and Higher Education. Colwell returned to SIU after serving since 2010 as dean of the College of Education and Human Development at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Prior to his appointment at Bowling Green, he served at SIU as associate dean for academic and student affairs for the College of Education and Human Services from 2008 to 2010. He was chair of the Department of Educational Administration and Higher Education from 2004 to 2008 and served as the department’s director of graduate studies from 2001 to 2004. He came to SIU in 1996 as an assistant professor and was appointed associate professor in 2001 and professor in 2005. Colwell holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Anderson University in Indiana and a master's degree in educational administration, a juris doctor (law) degree and a doctoral degree in educational administration, all from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. His appointment, approved by the SIU Board of Trustees on Sept. 10, 2015, upon the recommendation of System President Randy Dunn, is effective through June 30, 2017. [11]

Academic programs and rankings[edit]

SIU offers more than 300[5][12] academic degree programs across all levels: bachelors, masters, and doctoral. It also offers professional programs in architecture,[13] business, law and medicine. Since 1989, SIU has offered an MD/JD dual degree program,[14] leading to the concurrent award of both degrees after completion of six years of coursework.[14][15]

The Carnegie Foundation categorizes Southern as: "RU/H: Research Universities (high research activity)."[16][17] In the academic year 2013-2014 the University was awarded over $138 million in research grants, the largest of which were to the School of Medicine and the College of Science.[18]

SIU Carbondale ranked #218 as a "National University" overall in the 2018 edition of annual college rankings by US News.[19] [20][12] Ranking performance was partially based on ratios of students to faculty. At SIU, 50 percent of the classes cap out at 20 or fewer students; only 5 percent of classes include 50 or more students. The ratio of students to faculty is 15 to 1 and the percentage of full-time faculty is 96 percent.[21] Additionally, the National Science Foundation ranks SIU No. 171 among public universities in the U.S. for total research and development expenditures, and No. 107 among earned doctorates.[22]

The Princeton Review ranked SIU in its 2012 list of "Best of the Midwest" colleges.[23] The Princeton Review's Guide to 311 Green Colleges: 2011 Edition includes SIU. The book, the second annual edition from The Princeton Review and the U.S. Green Building Council, recognizes colleges that demonstrate "a notable commitment to sustainability."[24]

Campus[edit]

Morris Library[edit]

Morris Library is the main library for SIU. The Library "Holds more than 3.6 million volumes, 200,000 e-books, 46,000 current periodicals and serials, and over 3.2 million microform units." [36] These figures make Morris Library among the top 50 research libraries in the United States and the second largest in the state. Library users have access to I-Share (the statewide automated library system) and to a comprehensive array of databases and other electronic data files. As the campus center for access to academic information and collaborative academic technology projects, Morris Library provides a wide range of services, including reference assistance, instructional and technical support, distance learning, geographic information systems (GIS), and multimedia courseware development. Morris Library is a member of the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI), Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA).

In 2009, Morris Library completed a massive renovation and expansion at a cost of $41 million. The building's original façade and the HVAC and elevator systems were completely replaced. Every floor of the eight-story building was completely overhauled to drastically improve accessibility and remove confusion. An additional 50,000 square feet (4,600 m2) of space was added to the north side of the library. Delyte's, a new coffee shop named after former SIU President Delyte W. Morris, now operates in a portion of the new space.

Student Center[edit]

With over 8 acres (3.24 ha) of floor space, the SIU Student Center is one of the largest student unions in the nation.[37] The programs and services offered provide SIU students, faculty, and staff a place to relax, gather a group to study or grab a bite to eat. The Student Center hosts multiple dining locations, the University Bookstore, ATM and Western Union stations, check cashing services, the ID Card office, and Debit Dawg activations and deposits all under one roof. The Student Center offers several ballrooms and smaller, expandable conference rooms for small or large gatherings. Student-run radio station WIDB 104.3 FM[38] broadcasts from the Student Center, and the Black Affairs Office, International Student Council, Student Programming Council or "SPC," student governments and the Greek Council are among the organizations with their offices in the building.

Student Center Patio

The Student Center operates a Bowling & Billiards facility that completed a major renovation in 2009, including electronic scoring, new lanes, glow-in-the-dark flooring, flat-screen TVs, drop-down screens, and new seating areas. Each lane is equipped with bumpers, and three IKAN Bowling Ramps will be available to attach to any model of wheelchair, allowing the occupant to control the speed, direction, and timing of the bowling ball's release. Twelve new Olhausen pool tables along with new lighting and an updated sound system are featured on the billiards side of the facility.

Student Recreation Center[edit]

Campus Lake, located on the southwest portion of campus, is a 41-acre (16.6 ha) spring-fed lake set in 25 acres (10.1 ha) of woodsland. A 2.2 miles (3.54 km) trail surrounds the lake.
SIU Lake and Residence Halls

The Student Recreation Center,[39] or "Rec," is the university's primary hub for intramural and fitness activities. The 213,747-square-foot (19,857.7 m2) building is one of the largest of its kind in the United States on a college campus. Access to the Recreational Center is paid for by the Student Recreation Fee which is included in each student's fees. Membership for alumni, faculty, emeritus and the general community can be purchased.

Indoor facilities include an Olympic sized 890,000 gallon natatorium (home to the SIU Salukis swimming and diving team), two weight rooms, an aerobics room, martial arts room, a rock climbing wall, tennis court, racquetball courts, squash courts, volleyball courts, basketball courts, and two running tracks. Outdoor facilities include several lighted hard-surface tennis courts, the Rec Sports Complex (used for intramural softball, flag football and soccer), a Frisbee golf course, the campus boat dock and campus beach.

Health Center[edit]

On February 3, 2006, SIU opened a new, 58,000-square-foot (5,400 m2) health center[40] adjacent to the Recreation Center. The $9.7 million facility provides medical services to the university community and houses the medical clinic, pharmacy, wellness resources, psychiatry clinic, counseling center, and sports medicine and physical therapy facilities.

The Southern Illinois Salukis are the athletic teams representing Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The university first sponsored athletic teams during the 1913–14 school year, when they were known as the "Maroons." Students and faculty began lobbying for a new mascot during the late 1940s. On March 19, 1951, the student body voted to change the official nickname to the Salukis. The saluki, the royal dog of ancient Egypt, was chosen as the mascot due to its reputation as a fast and tenacious hunter and because the southern Illinois region is known as "Little Egypt."[42]

The Salukis sponsor 16 varsity teams. Most compete in the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC), specifically in men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's golf, softball, women's swimming, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's track and field, and volleyball. The football program competes in the Missouri Valley Football Conference (MVFC). Men's swimming is part of the Mid-American Conference (MAC).

Athletic highlights[edit]

  • The baseball team has made 5 trips to the College World Series, with two of those trips resulting in second-place finishes in the National Championship in 1968 & 1971. They have also made 14 trips to the NCAA Tournament.
  • The men's basketball team advanced to the NCAA Tournament for six straight seasons between 2002–07, including two trips to the Sweet Sixteen.
  • The women's basketball team was Missouri Valley Conference champion in 2007.
  • Football had been ranked in the Top 10 in the Football Championship Subdivision for the four years 2006-09, and were in the playoffs for seven straight years, 2003–09.
  • Softball has been ranked in the Top 25 in the nation for the past two years and has advanced to the NCAA Tournament five straight seasons.
  • SIU's student-athletes lead the MVC in overall grade point average.

Student life[edit]

Southern Illinois University has a vibrant student culture and is home to more than 400 Registered Student Organizations (RSO). Organizations include honor societies, sports clubs and student activity groups, and 11 fraternities, 8 multicultural fraternities and 9 sororities. The largest RSO on campus is the Student Programming Council (SPC).

Student government[edit]

SIU has two primary bodies of student government responsible for distributing part of the Student Activity Fee to the RSO's:

  • The Undergraduate Student Government (USG)
  • Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC)

Additionally, one student is elected as one of the "Student Trustees"; the other is elected at SIUE and appointed by the governor as a voting member of the SIU Board of Trustees.

The Daily Egyptian[edit]

The Daily Egyptian or "DE" for short, is an award-winning student-run newspaper. The DE is published Monday through Thursday during the fall and spring semesters with a distribution of 78,000 copies, and an online edition on Friday. The Daily Egyptian has received more than 25 awards from the Illinois College Press Association. In 2002, the paper was the recipient of the National Newspaper Pacemaker Award for General Excellence, the nation's most prestigious college journalism award.[43]

Saluki Patrol[edit]

Founded in 1959, the Saluki Patrol is one of the oldest student security teams in the country. The student members assist the Department of Public Safety in their duties.[44]

On-Campus Housing[edit]

On-Campus housing at SIU is provided in residence halls and apartments and is offered for students who are undergraduates, graduates, parents, domestic partners, or married.

There are two main residence hall areas, each with a commons building containing a dining hall, known as East Campus and West Campus. The traditional residence hall contract includes a furnished room, wi-fi, cable, utilities and a dining plan. Residence hall rooms are fully furnished, and many have been modified to meet the needs of specific types of disability.

Apartment housing is available in Evergreen Terrace, Wall & Grand, and Elizabeth Apartments.

The SIU Housing Policy states: All single students under the age of 21, not residing with their parents or legal guardians, with fewer than 26 credit hours earned after high school are required to live in University-owned and operated residence halls. [45]Students are considered to hold freshman status if they have earned fewer than 26 credit hours after high school.

Cardboard Boat Regatta[edit]

Sunset over Southern Illinois University's Campus Lake.

The Cardboard Boat Regatta is an event held every spring semester at Campus Lake. Participants include university students and community members both young and old. The goal is to complete three trips around a 200-yard course on the lake using makeshift cardboard boats. There are three different categories for entries: canoes or kayaks, experimental boats and instant boats (boats created on-site the day of the event).

The idea for a Cardboard Regatta first originated in 1974 at Southern Illinois University. Richard Archer, a professor of Art and Design, dreamed up a final examination for students in his freshman design class. Buckminster Fuller, then a Distinguished Professor at SIU, had espoused the principle of "doing the most with the least," and faculty members found it intriguing to apply these principles in their classes. Archer felt it would be a real test of students' creativity and three-dimensional design skills to build human-sized boats made only of cardboard, and more than 20 years later, it is still happening.[46] Many communities, organizations and other universities around the country have joined in on the fun and now organize their own Cardboard Boat Regattas.

Competitive programs[edit]

  • National debate champions – Under the direction of debate coach Todd Graham, SIU won the National Parliamentary Tournament of Excellence in 2008 and 2013. The team also won the National Parliamentary Debate Association National Tournament in 2013 and were ranked first in the country over the course of the 2010, 2012, and 2013 seasons.
  • The SIU Flying Salukis Flight Team became the first team in National Intercollegiate Flying Association Region 8 modern history to win first place in regional competition three years in a row (2007–2009). At NIFA SAFCON 2014, the Flying Salukis won the team's ninth national title. The team has qualified for the national championships in 44 of the last 45 years.[47][when?]
  • The aviation program has been one of the best nationally for many years, with SIU's young pilots winning the International Aerobatic Club Collegiate National Team Award five of the last six years.[when?]
  • SIU's Radio/TV Department has won National awards (Student EMMYS) on a yearly basis for nearly a decade.[when?]
  • SIU's Forestry Club have been the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS Midwest Collegiate Challenge champions for over 18 years in a row.[when?]

Popular culture[edit]

In the cult hit-comedy movie Animal House the famous "College" shirt worn by actor John Belushi was created for him while attending house parties with his brother, actor James Belushi, who was a student at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

In the Simpsons episode "Super Franchise Me," it is revealed that the character Gil Gunderson was two credits short from graduation from Southern Illinois University. Also in the Simpsons episode "Sky Police," Gil Gunderson shouts "Go Southern Illinois" and along with Homer and Bart does the Saluki Strut, which is not a Southern Illinois University tradition. Nevertheless, the local Carbondale newspapers reported that Southern Illinois University was mentioned on The Simpsons.[74]
