University of Maryland at College Rark 

University to Sign Academic Agreements with the 
Academy of Sciences of the USSR 


/n a continued effort to cn- 
coiiraj^f col hib oration and ex- 
change with the Soviet Union 
and Eastern Europe, the Univer- 
sity of Maryland at College Park is sign- 
ing two ac;idemie agreements with the 
Academy of Sciences of the U'SSR. 

The agreements, which are designed 
to coordinate research among scientists 
and scholars in the United States and the 
USSR, will be .signed on May 1 4 during a 
visit by univer.sity president, William K. 

Kirwan is accompanying Maryland 
Governor William Donald Schacfer as 
part of a delegation of Maryland officials 
and business leaders visiting the Soviet 
I'nion and Eastern Europe May 4-P to 
establish economic and educational ties 
between the state of Maryland and 
Poland, Hungary and the USSR. 

The two agreements are between the 
Central Economics and .Mathematics In- 
stitute (CEMI) and the university's Col- 
lege of Behavioral and Social Sciences, 
and the Lcbedcv Physics Institute and 
the university's College of Computer, 
Mathematical and Phy.sical Sciences 
(CM PS). 

"At this very exciting moment in 
East /We St relations, the University of 
Mar^'land at College Park is moving 
rapidly on several fronts to create 
dynamic new partnerships and 
cooperative exchanges with scholars and 
researchers from the Soviet Union and 
Eastern Europe," says Kirw-an. 

"One program that we launched 
recently is an innovative initiative 
created in direct rcspoase to the major 
changes that have occurred in the Soviet 
Union and East Europe. This is a newly- 
established office to assist jointly- 
sponsored academic programs." he adds. 
"We anticipate that these and other pro- 
grams already in place will further ce- 
ment the close ties that we hope to 
establish on our visit to the USSR and 
Eastern Europe," 

The university currently is actively in- 
volved in several joint programs with 
the U.SSR and Eastern Europe, including 
the establishment of the US-USSR Office 

of Academic joint Ventures. This office 
was established in August I9B9 to pro- 
mote inter-iastitutional research and ex- 
change agreements between UMCP facul- 
ty and their counterparts in the Soviet 
Union and Eastern Europe, 

"The office seeks to become a na- 
tional center for the exchange of 
U.S. /Soviet science and technology, in- 
cluding intcr-institutionai arrangements 
for undergraduate, graduate and faculty 
exchanges in all fields." says Richard 
Rrecht. acting director 

The office co-ho.sted with the 
American Council of Teachers of Rus- 
sian. Riggs Bank, and the U.S. Chamber 
of Commerce a major conference on 
"The Winding Path of Perestroika" Feb, 
21-23. The conference brought l-^ top 
Soviet experts and policymakers from 
the USSR to the U.S. to meet with their 
American counterparts. The Soviets also 
visited the university on Feb. 26 to meet 
with students and faculty in a series of 
public and pri\'ate events.

William E. Kirwan: Portrait of a President

^B t 83, Brii Kir wean's mother 

/ ^ lias thu vimlity, intdlectual 
/ I curiosity ;ind enthusiasm of a 
iJL JL woman half her age. She also 
has an exceptional memory. 

In the com tor tabic living room of Col- 
lege I^irk's president where she's visiting 
on a rainy spring morning, Betty Kirwan 
settles back into her chair and recalls in- 
cidents from her .son's childhood that 
most parents would have long since 

"One night his father and 1 were going 
t)ut for dinner 1 had fixed dessert and 
put it in the refrigerator, but 1 reminded 
Brit he had to eat all his dinner before 
he could have the dessert, which was his 
favorite. The next morning there it was. 
still in the refrigerator When 1 asked Brit 
why hadn't he eaten it, he said, ' 
1 couldn't finish all my dinner.' Then he 
said, "You know. Mom, all my life I'm go- 
ing to be behind one de.ssert,' That tells 
yott something about his way of thinking 
and his character," 

William E. Kirwan isn't behind one 
dessert anymore. In fact, he's probably 
had more than his fill of tlie chocolate 
mousses and eremc de menthe parfaits 
that arc served as tlie piece de resistance 
:tt more than a few of the countless 
university dinners he attends. 

But Kirwan doesn't seem to mind, they 
go with the territory And, despite NC\A 
obstacles hes had to hurdle and complex 
budget decisions he's had to address dur- 
ing his first year as president, it's clear 
tliai Kirwan likes his job, 

Betty Kirwan tells another story on her 
son. Many years ago. she gave Brit's 
fatlicr. then president of the University of 
Kentucky, a .special Christmas present. 
For a person who loved classical music, 
it was the perfect gift, and, he often said, 
the best present he'd ever received. The 
gift was a shiny profcs.sional baton, and 
sometimes Ab Kirwan took it down from 
its place of honor on the mantel above 
the fireplace and, turning on the Vic- 
trola, conducted passages from his 
fa\'orite opecis. 

About 15 years ago. tipim her hus- 
band's death. Betty Kirwan passed the 
baton down to her son, 

"I've never seen him it. He doesn't 
play an instrument, you know. But 1 
don't know anyone who loves music 
more than he does." 

And. she observes, it never occurred 
to her that one day her son would be a 
university president— or that she'd be 
passing thai baton from one university 
president to another. 

On Monday, April 30, at 1 p.m. 

William E. Kirwan, SI. will be formally 
inaugurated as Pre.sident of the I'niver.siiy 
of Maryland at College Park, it's a job 
that seems to fit him almost as comfor- 
tably as a well-worn baseball glove. But 
then, that's not surprising. Kirwan has 
spent Ills entire life Immersed in 

Born on April 14, 1938 in Louisville, 
Kentucky, from his childhood on he has 
called a university campus home Kir- 
wan 's grandfather was in the first 
graduating cla,ss of the L'niversity of 
Chicago. His father. Albert D. (Ab) Kir- 
wan began his career as a football coach 
at the University of Kentucky in Lex- 
ington, became a history professor, dean 
of students, dean of the graduate .school, 
and finally president of the univer.sity. 

As a tiny child, Kirwan was nicknamed 
"Brit" for his middle name, English, and 
he goes by that nickname to this day. He 
and his older brother, Denny, who holds 
a chair in ocean ograjih)" at Old Domi- 
nion University, were avid sports fans 
even as little children, and Betty Kirwan 
has memories of her sons watching varsi- 
ty football practice from the sidelines 
and challenging each otlier to basketball 
games, throwing sock "balls" through 
home-made hanger hoops in Brit's 

With his mop of red hair and abun- 
dant freckles, the young Kirwan always 
stood out in a crowd, and the first award 
he ever won w^s neither for his athletic 
nor academic ability, but rather, for 
pos.scssing the most freckles per inch on 
his face in a first grade freckle contest. 

With a father who was a "strict 
disciplinarian." naturally Kirwan was a 
model of good deportment— except in 
junior high, says his mother. Kirwan 
himself admits to being somewhat less 
than angelic during this period of his life. 
Recalls his brother Denny: "His behavior 
was of some concern to our parents." 

Kirwan says, "I think 1 set a record for 
die number of bad deportment grades 
handed out in that junior high," And his 
mother recalls with a wry note In her 
voice, "His junior high principal told us 
Brit should take business math because 
he wasn't up to taking algebra, geometn', 
and trig." 

But once In high school, the young 
Kirwan "turned over a new leaf," 

He got straight As, was on the foot- 
ball, basketball and track teams, was 
elected vice president of the Student 
Council, crowned "king" at the school

carni\-al, and bdongcd to the National 
Honor Society, recalls his wife of almost 
thirty years. Patty sat behind him in 
seventh grade, but, she says, she was 
totally disinterested in the shy but 
popular class leader until they 
"discovered each other on a train trip 
home from their high school senior class 
trip to Washington D.C." 

A tenth-grade composition written by 
one of Kirwan's high school friends of- 
fers some insights into Kirwan's high 
school years. In "Who Is This? ', the 
classmate writes. "He seldom loses his 
temper but when he does, watch out. 
He is quite a lady's man.' e\'en though 
he does seem shy when he hangs his 
head.. .No one will question his 
scholastic ability because he ha.s a perfect 
standing,.-! think Brit Kirwin (sic) with his 
scholastic record, his sports ability and 
his good natured personality is the 
model student of Henr>' Clay." 

Denny tells a different kind of story on 
his brother during those same years. "He 
was working and earned enough money 
to buy a car We lived about two blocks 
from Henry Clay High School, but Brit 
was very proud of that car," says Denny. 
"Every morning he jumped into his car, 
drove off to school— and had to park 
about four blocks away from the school." 

Graduating from UK in 1960, Kirwan 
went on to Rutgers University, receiving 
his M.A. in 1962 and Ph.D. in 1964 in 
mathematics. Then his long-term associa- 
tion with College Park began. 

"You know," reflects his wife. "Brit and , 
1 have spent most of our adult lives at 
College Park. And we've loved every 
minute of it." 

Joining the mathematics department as 
an assistant professor Kirwan progressed 

Kirwan: A Personal View 

steadily throu^ the ranks, with promo- 
tions to associate profcs.sor in 196fi and 
full professor in 19~2. He had a reputa- 
tion as an excellent teacher and one re- 
cent graduate of his pre -calculus class 
talks about his ability in the classniom: 
"Dr Kirwan is a wonderful teacher. He 
explained ideas so clearly and was very 
patient with us. 1 was a freshman when 1 
took his course and had no idea how 
imfxjrtant he was— until I went to a con- 
ference with him in this big office with 
carix^ting. tven there, he made me feel 
that my progress was more important to 
him than anything else." 

From I9~-S1 , Kirwan was chair of the 
mathematics department, ranked about 
the time of the end of his tenure as chair 
as being among the top ten mathematics 
departments among public universities in 
the nation by the National Academy of 

Jack Goldhabcr, a mathematics col- 
league who has known Kirwan at least as 
long as anyone else at the university says, 
"Brit's special quality of leadership was 
apparent even then, He was rational, 
thoughtful, flexible and definitely had a 
special ability to recruit good people.*' 

Kirwan reflects on the qualities that he 
admires in an administrator. "I value con- 
sultation and feel strongly about shared 
governance and con.sen.sus building, and 
I hope [hat's what 1 practice," he says. 
"There's always a dilemma between 
building alliances and taking action, and 
to be effective, one has to balance the 

Why did he choose to move from 
mathematics chair into the infinitely 
more .stressful arena of high level univer- 
sity administration? His response; "I can 
honestly say that when 1 was young, be- 
ing a president was certainly never a goal 
of mine. My real amhiticm w^as to be a 
great mathematician, and 1 think 1 was 
pretty good. But it was clear 1 was not 
■going to be a really distinguished 
mathematician, and 1 go; more involved 
in administration. I find a lot of satisfac- 
tion in it, but it's .something that came 
through a gradual evolutionary process." 

This only indicates Kirwan's very high 
standards, .says Goldhaber "These stan- 
dards have already had a considerable 
impact on the university and this impact 
will be magnified in the future." 

Kirwan served as vice chancellor for 
academic affairs from 19K1-I9K8, gaining 
the fitle of provost in 19K6. Tor a short 
time, from August to No\'einber 1982. he 
agreed to serve as interim chancellor un- 
til the arrival of John B. Slaughter the 
new chancellor When .Slaughter resigned 
in August 19MH to become president of 
Occidental College, once again, Kirwan 
was lapped to head the university during 
the national search for a new president. 

The campus community w~js delighted 
when its popular choice for president, 
Brit Kirwan, emerged from the search as 
the top candidate, and congratulations 
came pouring in when his appointment 
was announced at a Regents' meeting on 
February 1, 1989. 

Betty Kirwan describes College Park's 
new president as a person who charts a 
course and pursues it rationally does 
what he know's is riglit, no matter how- 
difficult, and is a competitor— ^' He fights 
hard and never gives up. " 

People at the university .say they ad- 
mire him for a number of other qualities, 
in particular, for his openness and will- 
ingness to listen to ideas, ability to build 
a consensus among diverse groups, and 
articulate a vision for the uni\'ersity 

They attribute some impressive 
changes made by the university in recent 
years to Kirwan's ability to lead. For in- 
stance. College Park has restructured its 
academic organization from five divisions 
10 a more traditional one of colleges and 
schools, reduced undergraduate enroll- 
ment and reformed undergraduate educa- 
tion while raising academic standards, in- 
crea.sed the nutnber of undergraduate 
scholarships and graduate fellowships, 
recruited many outstanding faculty, in- 
creased the percentage of black 
undergraduates to an all-time high, and 
implemented a more positive climate for 
women and minorities. 

Characteristically, he's modest when 

asked to pinpoint his major ac- 
complishments. But he docs admit to a 
few and says he's proud, in panicular of 
the role hes played in helping elevate the 
aspiraiit)ns of the institution and in 
creating a more diverse institution. 

A person of prodigious energy, Kirwan 
moves almost non-stop througli a daun- 
ting daily .schedule tliai more often than 
not stretches from " a.m. to midnight. 
Nevertheless, he .still finds ume to con- 
tinue teaching a mathematics clas,s, .sit 
engns.ssed in the concerts of the 
Guameri Siring quartet at 'Hmes Recital 
iiall. attend University Theatre produc- 
tioas, and even take off an hour or two, 
every week or so, to play tennis. He's 
known for his excellent singles game and 
has fiercely competitive contests witli 
Denny's son, who graduated from the 
university and lives nearby 

Brit and Patty Kirwan's two children, 
William E. Kirwan, III, lb, and Ann 
FJizabeth, 21, also have attended the 
university Bill is a graduate of the .School 
of Architecture and Ann currently is a 
junior journalism major at College Park. 

Looking back over his first year at the 
helm of the st;ite's fiagship university, is 
Kirwan satisfied with what's been ac- 
complished? Tve been overwhelmed by 
the enthusiasm and degree of support for 
all that we want to try to do," he says. 
"On the other hand, my biggest disap- 
pointment is the fact that we haven't 
received as much funding or external 
support for the enhancement plan as we 
thought we would. I'd describe myself 
on that issue as disappointed but not 
discouraged, and 1 intend to bring the 
plan back to the table next year' his coiwiction that the 
strength of this institution is remarkable, 
lie says, 'The opportunity to serve as 
president of the institution at this par- 
licular time in the university's history 
carries a very special obligation," 

But for a man who loves a challenge, 
as College Park's new" president does, 
this is just the right place to he ■

Planning an Inauguration to Remember 

John Jalf. cabinetmaker, and Richard Baker, supervisor of the paint shop, inspect newly formed 
maces prior to staining. 

^hen the uni\'er5it\' holds an e\'ent on 
such a grand scale as an inauguration- 
only the second one held here in ai least 
20 \cars— virtually everyone on campus 
becomes involved. Whether its silling on 
a committee to plan the logistics for the 
event, typing a memo to inform the cam- 
pus community ahoiii it, stuffing 
envelnpes. setting up chairs, preparing 
food, performing in a gala concert— or 

even writing about it for Outlook— 
almost all of us will play a role in carry- 
ing the event through to success. 

With si.x days of events planned for 
"Celebrating a New President," a lot of 
work already has been completed, and a 
bit more still needs to be aecompli,shed, 
says Carolyn A. Em. acting director of 
special events and a member of the 
Committee to Inaugurate the President. 

"Our committee met for the first lime 
on Oct. ,M last year." Ent says, "and 
we've been working on this important 
project ever .since" 

The committee is using ihe guidelines 
of President John B. Slaughter's inaugura- 
tion in the spring of IW,^ to help plan 
this one for President Kirwan, 

According to Ent, committee members 
were broken into subcommittees to jilan 
such tasks as the development of in\'ita- 
tion lists, the writing and design of the 
printed program, the planning of a 
brunch and intellectual, cultural, and 
social events, planning the inauguration 
ceremony itself as well as the reception 
that foUows, 

All of the activities will involve the ef- 
forts of countless people," Ent says. 

For example, maces are needed for 
marshals to bear during the inauguration 
processional. It is the carpenters in 
Physical Plant who ha\'e produced them. 

Also, a program had to be written. 
Public Information staff writers Linda 
Kreeman and Tom Otwell were given the 
assignment. A design was needed for the 
in\'itations and programs, and Creative 
•Services held a design contest in its 
shop, which was won by Publications 
Specialist .Maria A. Sese. 

And what about parking? Thousands 
of cars will arrive on campus during the 

inauguration events, and the Parking Of- 
fice has prepared special visitors' permits 
and campus maps for distribution. 

The inauguration events begin this 
week, and, when a few hundred little 
details still being completed are finally 
checked off in various campus offices, 
this surely will be an inaugunnion to 

The inauguration committee includes: 
Chair, J. Robert Dorfman, vice president 
for academic affairs and; Drury 
G. Bagwell, assistant vice president for 
student affairs; Dcirdre David, chair, 
Dcpt. of English; Marie S, Davidson, ac- 
ting executive assistant to the president; 
George E, Dieter, dean, College of 
Engineering; Carolyn Em, acting director 
of .special events; Richard T. Earrell, 
associate professor, Dept, of History; 
Sandra C. Greer, profes.sor. Dept, of 
Chemistry' and Biochemistry: Roz 
Hicbert. director of public information; 
John Lippincott, director of system 
university relations: Sue B. Lynch, ad- 
ministrative assistant to the chancellor; 
Leon Major, acting chuir, Dept. of Music; 
Patrick Nelson, undergraduate student; 
Don C. Piper, professor of govt, and 
politics and director of graduate studies; 
and, Stephanie Stockman, graduate stu- 
dent. ■

continues to provide, one of the most 
important and meaningful links between 
members of the campus community and 
large numljers of our service personnel,"!
