Goldhaber, a Brooklyn native, 
came to the university in 1961 as a 
Research Associate Professor of 
Mathematics. In 1962, he became a 
professor of mathematics, an 
appointment he continues to hold. 

From 1968 to 1977, Goldhaber 
served as chair of the Department 
of Mathematics. During his tenure, 
the department developed into one 
of the nation's most highly regard- 
ed programs, ranking in the top ten 
among public research universities 
in the most recent rankings by the 
National Academy of Sciences. 

Twice, Goldhaber has served as 
Acting Dean of Graduate Research 
and Studies. He first held the post 
from 1984 to 1985 and assumed the 
position again in 1987 and is hold- 
ing the post while a search is con- 
ducted for a permanent dean. 

As acting dean, Goldhaber has 
distinguished himself by fostering 
a positive research environment 
and working to bring many distin- 
guished scholars to the university. 
Among his innovations is creation 
of the Graduate School's Distin- 
guished Lecture Series.

SAT Scores Are Up: University 
Enrolls Brightest Class Ever 

With a mean Scholastic Aptitude 
Test (SAT) score of 1087, this year's 
freshman class is the most acade- 
mically talented group ever admit- 
ted to the state's flagship campus, 
the University of Maryland at Col- 
lege Park, The SAT averages for 
the 3,241 new first-year students 
represent a three-point gain over 
last vear's freshman class, while 
their mean grade point average 
(GPA) at 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, remains 
unchanged from last year. 

Among the new group of fresh- 
men are 101 students admitted as 
part of a program for economically 
disadvantaged students paid for by 
state and federal funds. SATs for 
this group carry less weight than 
demonstrated motivation and aca- 
demic achievement in high schools, 
according to admissions director 
Linda Clement. Last year, 78 disad- 
vantaged students were admitted 
under the same guidelines, says 

The mean freshman SAT score 
of all regularly admitted students 
is 1097, she says. 

The new class totals 147 fewer 
students than the 1989 freshman 
class. Its minority enrollment is 
consistent with last year's figures 
at 15.0 percent African- American, 
12.8 percent Asian, and 4.8 
percent Hispanic and others. 

The number of National Merit 
Scholars choosing to attend 
College Park is greater than the 
number attending any other 
public university in the state, with 
the total rising from 21 in 1989 to 
34 this year. National Merit 
Scholars generally score among 
the top one or two percent on the 
SAT nationally and are among the 
highest-achieving high school 
graduates in the country.

to reduce undergraduate

"Jack Goldhaber is a superb 
choice for tbis honor," says Presi- 
dent William E. Kirwan. "For many 
years, he has worked tirelessly to 
make this a great university. He's 
done this with a great sense of con- 
cern and passion for the people 
with whom he's worked. It is hard 
to capture in just a few words what 
he has meant to the university." 

Among Goldhaber's significant 
accomplishments, Kirwan cites 
Goldhaber's contribution toward 
building of the mathematics de- 
partment into a highly ranked pro- 
gram, his skillful managment of 
graduate research funds, recruit- 
ment of outstanding new faculty 
members, and creation of the Dis- 
tinguished Lecture Series. 

"On a personal level, he has 
been mentor to me," says Kirwan, 
who was a faculty member in 
mathematics during Goldhaber's 
tenure as department chair. "He is 
a close friend, advisor and confi- 

Goldhaber will become the sev- 
enth person to receive the award, 
originally known as the Chan- 
cellor's Medal. Former Chancellor 
John B. Slaughter created the 
award in 1985 to honor those who 
have performed outstanding ser- 
vice to the university. Past winners 
are Paul Traver, founder and direc- 
tor of the UM Chorus; Donald 
Maley, retired chair of the Depart- 
ment of Industrial, Technological 
and Occupational Education; 
Richard Jacquith, retired Assistant 
Vice Chancellor for Academic 

Affairs; J. Robert Dorfman, Vice 
President of Academic Affairs and 
Provost; Thomas M. Ma goon, 
retired director of the Counseling 
Center; and Graciela Nemes, pro- 
fessor emerita of Spanish and Port- 
uguese languages and literatures. 

The Associate Staff honorees in- 

• Linda Clement, a university 
employee for 16 years, who has 
been the Director of Admissions 
since 1982. She is being recognized 
for her central role in improving 
the quality of College Park's under- 
graduate student body and in in- 
creasing minority enrollment. 

• Leonard Jankowski, a univer- 
sity employee for 20 years, who 
has been director of the Depart- 
ment of Campus Parking since 
1981. He is being recognized for his 
effective management of the uni- 
versity parking system as the loca- 
tion of parking lots at the univer- 
sity shift with the construction of 
buildings on the sites of former 

• Jerry Lewis, a university 
employee for 18 years, has been 
Director of the Intensive Educa- 
tional Development Program, He is 
being recognized for his efforts to 
help students from low income and 
low education backgrounds to per- 
form successfully in college. 

• Ronald Jones who has been 
Director of Procurement and Sup- 
ply since 1981. He is being recog- 
nized for his innovative manage- 
ment of the university's procure- 
ment system and for conducting 
seminars on procurement that help

enrollment, the number of transfer 
admissions is also down, with a 
planned reduction from 3,051 a 
year ago to 2,813 this fall. 

At 6,054 freshmen and 
transfers, this year's total new 
undergraduate student enrollment 
is within one percent of the target 
set by the enrollment reduction 
plan. Implementation of the plan 
has resulted in smaller classes and 
tougher admission standards, says 

One result of higher admission 
standards is that the university 
now gathers more information 
about each applicant, she says. "So 
many talented students are apply- 
ing that a good GPA and strong 
SATs no longer ensure automatic 
acceptance," says Clement. "This 
year, we're asking for a list of co- 
curricular activities and accom- 
plishments and giving applicants 
the option of submitting a 
personal essay," she says. 

"In the future, we'll be able to 
recognize more students who not 
only earn good grades, but also 
demonstrate independence, indi- 
viduality and initiative, it means 
more work for our admission 
counselors, but better admission 

decisions for our applicants and 
for the university," she predicts. 

Standards for transfer 
admission also have increased 
significantly as the university has 
taken steps to limit undergraduate 
enrollment, says Clement. "Five 
years ago, any transfer applicant 
with a 2.0 GPA would have been 
accepted, "but that is hardly the 
case today." 

At the same time that the uni- 
versity is raising its 
undergraduate admission 
standards, students admitted to 
College Park are getting a good 
education for their money. 
According to a survey just 
released in the fall 1990 issue of 
Money magazine's "Money 
Guide," the university remains a 
good buy in terms of college cost, 
with a tuition charge of just 
$2,269 for in-state residents. The 
survey identified the colleges and 
universities that deliver the best 
education for the costs, and 
College Park ranked among the 
top 100 best college buys in the 
nation, according to the survey on 
"America's Best College Buys."

Sagdeev: Extending the 
International Language of Science 

To Soviet physicist Roald 
Sagdeev, the speaker at the 
Faculty /Staff Convocation on 
October 23, science is an interna- 
tional language designed to bring 
the world's nations together. He 
believes that glnsnost, the Russian 
word for openness, could be 
extended in definition to include 
openness for the entire world — in 
cooperative exchanges of scientific 
knowledge, resources and facilities. 

Sagdeev has pushed for co- 
operation between the scientific 
communities of the Soviet Union 
and the Western nations for more 
than 30 years, lie established his 
present ties to the University of 
Maryland more than 20 years ago 
when he first conducted plasma 
research with College Park physics 
professor and former department 
chair, Chuan Sheng Liu. 

Since then, Sagdeev has had sev- 
eral exchanges with the university 
that have led to his recent joint ap- 
pointment as a distinguished pro- 
fessor in the Department of Physics 
and Astronomy and with the Insti- 
tute for Physical Science and Tech- 

"My short time here at Mary- 
land has already been a great plea- 
sure," he says. "The university is 
becoming a central institution in 
the United States for international 
science and public affairs. We can 
make these areas continue to 

In addition to his appointment 
as distinguished professor, Sagdeev 
also will head the new East- West 
Science and Technology Center, 
which will work toward creating 
scientific and technological linkages 
between the United States, the 
Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. 
The center will operate on a 
S100,000 budget during its first 
year, says Sagdeev. 

"The center we are creating will 
be a clearinghouse designed to 
bring people together to discuss 

and liberate different ideas from all 
parts of campus, with an inter- 
national communitv in mind," 
Sagdeev says. "We hope to build a 
bridge between our campus com- 
munity, industry, and the east." 

"Dr. Sagdeev is going to greatly 
enhance our reputation as a lead- 
ing physics department, and he 
will increase our cooperative ties 
with other Soviet physicists," says 
Derek Boyd, chair of the physics 

"There is a straightforward story 
as to why I came across the ocean 
to Maryland," says Sagdeev. "It is 
partly because of my marriage to 
Susan Eisenhower, and largely be- 
cause of Maryland's close proxi- 
mity to Washington, D.C., where 
my wife is an international consul- 
tant." It is also the proximity of 
this university to Washington, D,C. 
that makes Sagdeev believe the 
university will gain the inter- 
national reputation he believes it 

Sagdeev himself brings an inter- 
national reputation to the univer- 
sity. He is a world-renowned phys- 
icist specializing in nonlinear space 
plasmas. For ten years he was di- 
rector of Moscow's Institute for 
Space Research. In that position he 
was a key science advisor to Soviet 
President Mikhail Corbachov. Sag- 
deev was a key member of the 
Soviet Union's extraordinary space 
program during its key years of 
development in the 1950s and 

In the 1960s, Sagdeev led a 
Soviet delegation to the Trieste 
Center for Theoretical Physics, 
which collaborated with an Ameri- 
can team. The meeting was, at that 
time, the most extensive and fruit- 
ful collaboration to occur between 
Soviet and American physicists in 
controlled fusion theory. And un- 
der Sagdeev's directorship of the 
Institute for Space Physics, many of 
the most dramatic advances in 

space exploration occurred, includ- 
ing a dramatic satellite encounter 
with Halley's Comet, 

In addition to his scientific 
achievements, Sagdeev is a member 
of the Soviet Union's Congress of 
People's Deputies. In his role as 
advisor to Gorbachev, he has been 
an outspoken proponent for inter- 
national security and disarmament, 
and he is a strong and influential 
spokesman on global environmen- 
tal and energy issues. 

Sagdeev and his wife Susan 
Eisenhower have written several 
articles for major newspapers and 
magazines about the changing 
situation in the Soviet Union and 
Eastern Europe and the effects of 
these changes on the rest of the 
world . 

Sagdeev also is writing his 
memoirs about his life as a scientist 
in the Soviet Union. He expects to 
have the project completed in a 
couple of months and to see publi- 
cation in about a year, 

Maryland's new distinguished 
professor of physics is a graduate 
of Moscow State University. He has 
worked at the Institute of Nuclear 
Physics in Novosibirsk, the insti- 
tute of High Temperature Physics 
in Moscow, and as a professor of 
physics at Novosibirsk State Uni- 
versity and Moscow Physico- 
Technical Institute. He is chair of 
the Committee of Soviet Scientists 
for Global Security. 

He also is a member of the Aca- 
demy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R. 
and is a foreign member of the 
American National Academy of 

He has lengthy experience as a 
physics instructor at both the grad- 
uate and undergraduate levels and 
is teaching graduate students in 
plasma physics this semester at the

Gudelsky Veterinary Center to be Dedicated Oct. 26 

The Gudelsky Veterinary Center, 
a $12.5 million building completed 
this year, is the new home of the 
Maryland Campus of the Virginia- 
Maryland Regional College of 
Veterinary Medicine. The center 
will be dedicated Oct. 26 at 2 p.m. 

President William E, Kirwan, 
Maryland Secretary of Agriculture 
Wayne A. Cawley, Jr. and other 
dignitaries from both states will 
participate in the ceremonies. 

When the college moved its 
components into the center, it was 
the first time since 1938 that all 
members of the college were 
housed together. The center is 
designed as a state-of-the-art 
research, teaching, and service 
facility supporting future programs 
to meet the needs of agribusiness 
and veterinary medicine in the 
state of Maryland, 

The center houses three units: 
the Maryland Campus of the 
Regional Veterinary College, the 
Animal Health Diagnostic Labor- 
atory of the Maryland Department 
of Agriculture, and the Maryland 
Racing Commission Drug Testing 

Last April, the college was 
awarded full accreditation by the 
American Veterinary Medical As- 
sociation (AVMA). "Full" accredita- 
tion represents the highest level of 
the AVMA accreditation process. 
The college achieved this prestig- 
ious goal just prior to celebrating 
its 10th anniversary. 

"The college's new status as a 
fully accredited institution will en- 
hance student and faculty recruit- 
ment, help procure externally fund- 
ed research grants, and assist in 
fund-raising," says Sashi Mohanty, 

associate dean of the college's 
Maryland campus. 

Mohanty adds that the outstand- 
ing efforts by the administration of 
this university and officials of both 
Maryland and Virginia have helped 
bring about the recognition of the 
college. "Their endeavors were 
critical in achieving full accredita- 
tion," he says. 

Also, during the past year a new 
academic agreement was negoti- 
ated between the University of 
Maryland at College Park and Vir- 
ginia Tech, and has been signed by 
the governors of the two states. A 
major curriculum program in Gov- 
ernment and Corporate Veterinary 
Medicine is managed through the 
Maryland Campus of the college, 
and a program in Production Main- 
tenance Medicine currently is being

Bill Brandwein: Tech Supervisor 
at Tawes and Then Some 

Bill Brandwein's official title is 
"technical supervisor" for Tawes 
Theatre, but don't let the name fool 

"There's not a job description 
out there that would encompass 
everything 1 do," savs the energetic 
34-year-old. So what does he do, 
exactly? That depends on what's 
happening on the Tawes, the 
Pugliese, and the Experimental 
Stages. "For the theater department, 
I maintain the theaters. I make sure 
all the equipment is working prop- 
erly," he explains. "For outside 
productions, I'm the stage manager 
and production manager. I also do 
all the computer work and oversee 
the sound and lighting for every 

Though Brandwein has spent 
some time on the other side of the 
spotlight, he says he contributes at 
least as much to productions now. 

"The technical aspect is the most 
important in the theater," he says. 
"If an actor flubs a line, the audi- 
ence forgives him, if they notice at 
all. But what if an actress goes to 
turn on a lamp, and the lamp 
across the room comes on? At 
best, technical mistakes ruin the 

Brandwein tries to instill this 
sense of urgency in his student as- 
sistants. "I remind them that every- 
thing they do here will be seen by 
thousands who paid to see it. The 
audience is intolerant of technical 

He supervises a regular crew of 
six students, who help him main- 
tain the theaters, and an additional 
15 or 20 during productions. In five 
years of overseeing novice set 
builders and light hangers, there's 
never been a serious injury. "One 
thing I stress is safety," he says, 
acknowledging the potential for 
danger when students work with 
power tools, nail guns, and 30-foot- 

Brandwein entered the univer- 
sity as a freshman in 1974, and 
never left. Schooled in technical 
theater, electrical engineering, and 
acoustics, he spent the first seven 
years after his graduation in the 
physics department, working with 
Richard Berg, host of the highly 
popular "Physics is Phun" educa- 
tional series. Brandwein assisted in 
developing several ideas for the 
demonstrations which are sched- 
uled four times a year, "We helped 
put showmanship in physics," he 
says proudly. 

In 1985, he signed on with the 
theater department as technical su- 
pervisor, a position enhanced by 
his scientific background. "For this 
equipment," he says, gesturing 
toward a mammoth black panel 
dotted with brightly-colored knobs, 
"you need an engineering back- 
ground to understand it and a the- 
atrical background to use it. J ' 

This combination of skills 
helped him win a scholarship for 
outstanding contribution to the the- 

Bill Brandwein 

ater. Bill Patterson, manager of 
Tawes Theatre, remembers one un- 
dergraduate accomplishment in 
particular. "He created "Tinkerbell," 
recalls Patterson. "On Broadway, 
they do it with a spotlight going 
around the stage. But Bill wired the 

stage with twinkling lights to make 
it appear that she was flying 
a round the room. It was magical! 
The audience loved it." 

Since coming to Tawes, 
Brandwein has replaced or rebuilt 
all of the lighting and most of the 
sound equipment, also finding time 
to computerize the box office's ac- 
counting records system. On the 
side, he has done some freelance 
troubleshooting for area nightclubs, 
including Lost and Found, 
Cagney's, and the now defunct The 
Pier. He says most of the requests 
he gets from clubs are to repair 
their sound or lighting systems, 
although some want him to design 

But it doesn't look like he'll 
have much time for outside work 
this year. "The theatres will be in 
use every night this semester," he 
says, ticking off a list on his 
fingers. "Rosh Hoshana and Yom 
Kippur services, Latin Day for high 
school kids, the Miss Black Unity 

Not to mention the in-house 
productions. University Theatre 
will present six shows this season, 
all of which mean months of fine- 
tuning. "It's not unusual to practice 
two hours for every minute of the 
show," says Brandwein, who com- 
pares working on a show to giving 
birth. The payoff for the weeks of 
perfecting the lighting and sound 
cues is invisibility. 

"If we do a perfect job, nobody 
knows we're there." 

Susie Powell 

Forces Behind the Scenes 

University Theatre will present 
six plays this season. Lanford Wit- 
son's "The Rimers of Eldritch," John 
PieSmeier's "Agnes of God," and 
Caryl Churchill's "Top Girls" will 
appear at Pugliese Theatre, while 
Charlie Smalls' "The Wiz," George 
Bernard Shaw's "Major Barbara," 
and Shakespeare's "The Taming of 
the Shrew" take the stage at Tawes. 

The only musical, "The Wiz," is 
shaping up to be the most difficult 
to mount. "The Wiz' will stretch to 
the limits the talents of everybody 
involved, because it's such a high 
volume rock & roll musical," says 
Bill Brandwein, technical supervis- 
or of Tawes Theatre, who will or- 
chestrate the lighting and sound for 
all productions. 

Here's a look at some of the 
other talent behind the scenes: 

Bill Patterson, theatre manager 
since 1974. Supervises University 
Theatre publicity, public relations, 
and fundraising for the theatre's 
scholarship program. Also teaches 
class in theater management. 

David Kriebs, technical director. 
In charge of all technical aspects of 
University Theater: set design, cos- 

tumes, lighting, sound. "He directs 
everything but the actors," says Bill

"It's Not Just a Choir... It's a Family. 


College Park audiences who en- 
joyed the Maryland Gospel Choir's 
first album, "Jesus Loves Me," 
released in August, will have the 
opportunity to hear the group per- 
form in person at their annual 
Gospel Extravaganza in the Adult 
Education Auditorium October 27. 

The Extravaganza tradition 
unites gospel choirs from predomi- 
nantly white campuses to sing and 
share fellowship together without 
competition, according to director 
Valeria Foster. "Our [the choir's] 
existence is more than just a social 
gathering; it's a support group," 
said Foster, "The purpose is to 
bring them together, and hopefully 
they will get some inspiration that 
they can take back to campuses." 

Foster, who has directed the 
choir for almost ten years, has in- 
vited choirs from Hood College, 
George Mason, George Washington 
and Georgetown Universities, and 
the U.S. Naval Academy to per- 
form. The groups do not just sing; 
they also encourage each other. 

"Competition is often what's 
stressed on campuses instead of 
fellowship," said Foster. "Not 
everyone has a good year, but (the 
Extravaganza] is not a time to be 

Founded by students in 1975, 
and later directed by gospel record- 
ing artist Richard Small wood, the 
College Park choir has performed 
at various churches and commun- 
ity functions in New Jersey, Penn- 
sylvania, Georgia, Virginia, and 
Washington, D.C. 

The choir provided background 
vocals for "Purlie" [February 1989], 
the first black musical produced at 
College Park, and is scheduled to 
sing for the November production 
of "The Wiz." 

Besides singing, the choir par- 
ticipates in community service 

"I think one of the nicest things 
about the choir is that we don't just 
get together and sing," said Foster, 
"We do group things. One Satur- 
day we were big brothers and big 
sisters to foster children, we've col- 
lected clothes for the homeless, and 
one year a small group of us tu- 
tored inmates in jail. We often tutor 
each other. If a member is strug- 
gling in a particular class and 

The Maryland Gospel Choir is directed by Valeria Foster. 

someone else can help, they do. A 
Bible study group [co-sponsored by 
the Black Ministries Programl 
meets twice a month [during the 
academic year]." 

The choir also has won awards. 

At the Nyumburu Cultural Cen- 
ter Black Awards Night last May, 
the choir received the Black Stu- 
dent Organization of the Year 
Award. One of the choir's most 
outstanding accomplishments, 
however, was the recording of its 
first album in February. The album 
includes a variety of gospels and 
spirituals including "Jesus Loves 
Me," "Ezekiai Saw De Wheel," 
"Christ Is Blessing Me" and many 

"1 am excited," said Nyumburu 
director Otis Williams. "This [the 
album] should enhance the visibil- 
ity of the choir and help recruit 
more minority students to Mary- 

Although the album was just 
released, the choir is hopeful of a 
positive response and would like to 
record again in the future. 

"I won't say how soon," Foster 
continued, "because we haven't 
really got this one out yet. This 
being the first one, there's a lot to 
be learned and a lot to do; we're 
mainly getting some experience 

The choir, which has expanded 
in number to over 100 members 
including several alumni, has 
grown together socially and spirit- 
ually as well. Its members have 

often been referred to as positive 
role models for young blacks. 

"Black kids should not be out 
there just doing drugs," said six- 
year alumna member, Petra Martin, 
"They have the churches to look to. 
If one person is to remember that, 
it's worth it." 

Although some of the Maryland 
Gospel choir members receive cre- 
dit for the class, many members 
remain in the choir after gradu- 
ation for its fellowship and sup- 

"[Being in the choir] has been an 
experience I've never had before," 
continued Martin, "It has been 
more influential than any class I 
ever had because you learn more 
than just music, but about life, 
mainly from each other's experien- 
ces. I know when I was [an under- 
graduate], I always knew if I ever 
felt lonely, I could not just turn to 
one person, but to a whole choir. 
It's definitely brought me closer to 

"We're more concerned about 
each other's spiritual growth, and 
each other's accomplishments 
instead of being selfish," said choir 
assistant chaplain, Doresa Barbour. 
"We are a close- knit group but we 
are not a clique." 

Choir president and three-year 
member, Stacy Jones puts it this 
way, "It's not just a choir, it's not 
just a class, it's not just a campus 
organization, it's a family."

Wilson Play Opens Theatre Season 

The Rimers of Eldritch, Lanford 
Wilson's dim view of small town 
life, will open the University 
Theatre season, Oct. 16-21 and 23- 
28, in the Rudolph E. Pugliese 

"It seems that there are two 
basic views of small town life," 
says director Ron O'Leary, assoc- 
iate professor of theatre. 

"There is the positive view. 
People know each other, they know 
each others' parents. If you're at 
the store and don't have the money 
to pay for something, the store 

owner will give you credit because 
he knows you. That's the side of 
small town life that can be very 
supportive and comforting," he 

"Then there is the dark side. 
Everybody is constantly aware of 
what everybody else is doing. 
There are prejudices — certain 
people are ostracized. It can be 
very suffocating. This play focuses 
on the dark side," he adds. 

The play takes place in a former 
coal-mining town in the Midwest 
which has become increasingly de- 

pressed with the loss of its central 
industry. When the play opens, the 
population has dwindled to 70 and 
is "a virtual ghost town," according 
to O'Leary. 

In its setting and presentation, the 
University Theatre production ex- 
plores how people are affected by a 
place that is in decline. 

"We're trying to capture the ef- 
fect of a town in which the life is 
being leeched out of it," O'Leary

Superconductivity Center Continues 
Research, Expands Staff and Facilities 

Richard L. Greene 

Wide public interest in super- 
conductor research has settled 
down in the four years since major 
materials discoveries first caused a 
flurry of excitement, but the uni- 
versity's Center for Superconduc- 
tivity Research continues to con- 
duct research, publish papers, and 
expand its facilities and staff. 

"After the initial excitement a 
few years ago, researchers have 
gone back into the trenches and are 
facing reality," says Richard L. 
Greene, director of the center 
which operates on $2.7 million per 
year in state funding and contracts. 
"We are not going to have levitated 
trains by next year, so we are 
focusing on basic understanding 
and on basic science." 

According to Greene, much of 
his center's interest is focused on 
gaining greater knowledge of su- 
perconducting materials and on 
finding new, more practical ones. 

The center is concentrating its 
efforts on six interconnected areas; 
synthesis, bulk properties, theory, 
thin films, microstructural charac- 

terization, and superconducting 
electronics. In the area of synthesis, 
for example, the center is concen- 
trating on developing new classes 
of superconductors, finding precur- 
sors for deposition of thin films, 
and preparing known supercon- 
ductors for physical and chemical 

"We want to tie in basic 
knowledge to the next level — 
practical uses," Greene says. "It will 
probably be a long time before we 
are able to find uses for supercon- 
ductors in the home, but there are 
other likely commercial uses such 
as for microwave devices, satellite 
communications, infrared detectors 
and superconducting magnets." 

Greene points out that super- 
conducting magnets already are the 
major component in Magnetic 
Resonance Imaging (MR!), an im- 
portant medical diagnostic tech- 
nique now used in most hospitals. 

"Our center is very much inter- 
disciplinary," he says. "We have 
chemists, physicists, material scien- 
tists, and electrical engineers all 

bringing their particular expertise 
to this science. It is this interaction 
that will advance our knowledge of 

Interdisciplinary research also 
can lead to greater funding through 
joint research proposals that make 
use of shared knowledge and facili- 
ties, Greene says. 

As part of his expansion plans, 
Greene has added three outstand- 
ing new faculty members to the 
center's staff. Steven Anlage, an 
expert in thin film materials and 
microwave measurements, was 
recruited from Stanford University; 
Christopher J. Lobb, an expert on 
the properties of superconductors 
and superconducting devices, has 
arrived from Harvard University; 
and T. Venkatesan, an expert in the 
preparation and characterization of 
novel thin film materials, was 
recruited from Bellcore of Red 
Bank, N.J. 

Greene plans to add two more 
faculty members soon. He also 
hopes to add additional positions 
through joint appointments with 
other departments. 

As staff grows and research con- 
tinues, the center's facilities also 
will expand with 10,000 square feet 
of laboratory and office space cur- 
rently under construction and due 
for completion next year. 

"My goal is to make this one of 
the best centers in the country," 
Greene says. "With the top people 
we have succeeded in recruiting, 
and with our excellent existing fa- 
culty, we can continue to enhance 
our 'reputation and increase our 
outside funding."

Aerospace Engineering, NASA to Sponsor 
International Waverider Symposium 

The Department of Aerospace 
Engineering and the National Aero- 
nautics and Space Administration 
will sponsor the 1st International 
Hypersonic Waverider Symposium 
October 17-19. The conference will 
be held at the Center of Adult Edu- 

Research on all aspects of hyper- 
sonic flight (speeds in excess of five 
times the speed of sound) experi- 
enced a resurgence in the 1980s, 
notes aerospace engineering profes- 
sor John D. Anderson, Jr. who 
served as general organizer of the 
symposium. Part of this renewed 
interest includes a focus on high 
lift-to-drag hypersonic vehicles. 

Anderson and his department 
colleague Mark J. Lewis served on 
the symposium organizing commit- 

tee and will chair several of the 
conference sessions. 

The waverider concept, first in- 
troduced in the 1950s, has been re- 
examined recently as an aerodyna- 
mically efficient hypersonic config- 
uration with promising results in 
such diverse areas as hypersonic 
atmospheric flight, orbital transfer, 
entry into planetary atmospheres 
and others. 

The Maryland conference will 
bring together more than 100 wave- 
rider experts from around the 
world to share information about 
their research. Technical sessions 
will focus on optimization and 
design, mission application, experi- 
mental investigations, analytical 
studies, and computational fluid 
dynamic applications, Anderson says. 

Researchers from this country, 
New Zealand, England, the 
U.S.S.R., Japan, Canada, Japan, 
Taiwan, Israel, Scotland, and Ger- 
many will present papers,

Equity in the Academy 

William E. Kirwan 

The following is excerpted from re- 
marks made by President William E. 
Kirwan at a program on Sept. 25 
honoring Communications Associate 
Professor Vicki Freimuth, the univer- 
sity's 1990 Woman of the Year. 

...To achieve equity in the acad- 
emy, I am convinced we must shift 
the types of questions we ask and 
the nature of the solutions we pro- 
pose. Although we have to continue 
to work to improve the participation 
rate of women and people of color 
throughout our institutions, we can 
no longer allow these initiative to be 
the sole focus of our efforts. To 
bring about fundamental and last- 
ing change, we must give increased 
attention to the transformation of 
institutional cultures. Only through 
affirmation of multiple traditions 
and multiple perspectives can we 
begin to change the norms by which 
we operate. 

Permanent change of these norms 
must be the goal for the University 
8 of Maryland at College 
8 Park. To attain this goal, we need 
» plans, resources and leadership. I 
I would like to address each of these 
areas briefly. 

Our most comprehensive set of 
current initiatives is guided by a 
three-year plan to improve under- 
graduate women's education (The 
Greer Report). We are beginning 
the third year of implementation of 
this report under the leadership of 
Betty Schmitz, special assistant to 
the president, and we have already 
accomplished a tremendous 

< We have added three new full- 
time positions to Women's Studies, 
creating one of the strongest and 
most diverse programs in the coun- 
try, a program that, I am proud to 
say, has considerable expertise on 
U.S. women of color and women 
internationally- I want to commend 
Evelyn Beck again this year for her 
extraordinary leadership of the 
Women's Studies Program and the 
program's successful efforts in 
recruiting excellent faculty to the 

"* As part of the implementation 
of the Greer Report, we also have 
established and funded for three 
years an intensive summer institute 
for faculty members so that they 
can incorporate feminist scholar- 
ship into their courses. In this pro- 
gram, fifteen faculty members have 
an opportunity each summer to 
reevaluate the underpinnings of 
their disciplines in light of new 
perspectives on women and to in- 
corporate their findings into cour- 
ses central to undergraduate educa- 
tion. This highly innovative pro- 
gram was organized by Betty 
Schmitz and is now directed by 
Deborah Rosenfelt of the Women's 
Studies Program. 

-* We have set up a comprehen- 
sive program of education for 
faculty members and graduate 

teaching assistants on improving 
the classroom climate for all stu- 
dents. Through this program, coor- 
dinated by Betty Schmitz, Pamela 
Paul and Roger Mclntire, we hope 
to begin to remove the subtle, 
sometimes subconscious forms of 
bias that exist in the classroom en- 

-* And we have initiated pro- 
grams to reduce gender disparity in 
academic fields of study and in 
the faculty and staff of the institu- 
tion. As one example, we have in- 
itiated summer outreach programs 
for junior high and high school 
students to explore the fields of 
science and engineering. This year 
we brought 61 young women to 
our campus for periods of up to six 
weeks to give them an experience 
working with our faculty and in 
our laboratories.... The Women in 
Engineering Program is directed by 
Marilyn Berman; the Minority 
Scholars in Computer Science and 
Engineering Program is directed by 
Rosemary Parker, Thelma Williams 
and La Wanda Assem; and the new 
Physics Summer Outreach Program 
is coordinated by Angelo Bardasis.... 

To ensure that progress on 
women's equity issues continues — 
indeed becomes institutionalized — I 
have asked that the Greer Commit- 
tee provide me this year with an 
assessment of our effort to improve 
undergraduate women's education 
and to make recommendations on 
additional steps this institution 
must take to achieve our ultimate 
goals of gender equity. 

More permanent oversight of 
the status of women on campus is 
provided by the President's Com- 
mission on Women's Affairs....! 
want to take this opportunity to 
welcome the new chair of the com- 
mission, Josephine Withers, associ- 
ate professor of Art History and 
affiliate faculty member in 
Women's Studies. Also I want to 
thank once again Virginia 
Beauchamp for her excellent 
leadership of the commission of the 
past three years. 

Josephine has indicated to me 
that the agenda for the commission 
for this coming year will include: 
continued attention to questions of 
diversity, day care and elder care, 
equity in women's athletics, hiring 
and promotion of women of all 
races, salary equity, as well as new- 
initiatives such as a review of the 
campus climate for classified and 
associate staff and attention to re- 
duction of heterosexism and homo- 
phobia on the campus. 

Another important initiative be- 
ginning this year comes from the 
Office of Human Relations Pro- 
grams under the leadership of 
Gladys Brown. It is a comprehen- 
sive sexual harassment training 
program. I want to commend 
Gladys on the very fine manual she 
and her staff developed and assure 
her of ongoing administrative sup- 
port for this vitally important effort. 

These plans, programs and 
initiatives need resources. ...I want to 
assure that in making the required 
cuts this year, we will place the 
highest on preserving our gains in 
the areas of diversity and equity 
and continue to strive to meet the 
goals for equity and diversity that 
are built into our five-year 
enhancement plan.... 

Finally, to attain our goals for 
women's equity, we need leader- 
ship. This annual event is one way 
we recognize women who are out- 
standing in their fields. We are 
where we are today — a national 
leader in implementing change for 
women — due to the work of many- 
campus leaders — both women and 
men — who have worked for 
women's rights over the past 
decades. The person we honor to- 
day, Vicki Freimuth, associate prof- 
essor in the Department of Com- 
munication, is such a person — a 
role model. In addition to Vicki's 
contributions to the field of health 
education, she served as chair of 
the Women's Commission and as a 
member of the Greer Committee. In 
these roles, she has made substan- 
tial contributions to shaping this 
institution's vision for change. 

We need more leaders of this 
kind and we are taking steps to 
ensure that we will have them. The 
Center for Political Participation 
and Leadership, so ably directed by 
Georgia Sorenson, annually brings 
together established women politi- 
cal leaders with women aspiring to 

As another step toward develop- 
ing women leaders on this campus, 
I plan to initiate — next year — an 
internship program in my office for 
women faculty members to work 
on women's and other issues at the 
campus level.... 

We will also continue to seek and 
support other opportunities for 
leadership development. I am proud 
to announce that this year Judy D, 
Olian, associate professor, College 
of Business and Management, is 
serving as an American Council on 
Education Fellow in mv office. 

Next spring College Park will co- 
sponsor — with the American 
Council on Education — a meeting of 
presidents of public research 
universities that have comprehen- 
sive plans to improve the status of 
women on campus. This meeting 
will enable us to compare initiatives 
and strategies for addressing some 
of the persistent problems, to move 
to a new level of commitment on 
these issues, and to explore new, 
transformative models for change. 

There is today no model univer- 
sity that truly reflects the diversity 
of our society and that truly affirms 
the multiple traditions and perspec- 
tives that have shaped it. I sincerely 
believe we have the opportunity to 
create such a university at College
