Kelleher Wins Ford Grant for Arms Control Study 

Catherine Kelleher, director of the Center for International Security 
Studies at Maryland (CISSM), and Lawrence Freed man of the De- 
partment of War Studies at King's College, University of London, 
jointly have been awarded a $337,700 grant from the Ford Founda- 
tion. The grant will support a three-year project to study the histori- 
cal lessons to be learned from efforts at arms control in Europe from 
the 1950s to the present. In addition to working with Freedman at 
King's College, Kelleher will collaborate with College Park research 
associates Melanie Billings-Yun and Ivo H. Daalder on the study. 



Women at College Park- 
How Are they Doing? 

New Report Focuses on Progress and Barriers 



"...There are currently no mod- 
els to follow as we attempt on this 
campus to achieve excellence 
through diversity. The university 
is charting new territory. In order 
to guide us, we must continue to 
assess progress, identify persistent 
barriers to change and redesign 
existing programs and policies, or 
create new ones that move us for- 
ward on our agenda..." 
— President William E. Kirwan 
Women on Campus — A Status 
Report 

Clearly, the environment for wo- 
men at the university has impro\'ed 
considerably over the past decade. 
On the other hand, most people 
agree that College Park's female 
employees still have a long road to 
travel before achieving full parity in 
every aspect of university life. 

And when people refer to the 
positive changes that have taken 
place, they credit the President's 
Commission on Women's Affairs as 
a primary catalyst for improving the 
environment for university women. 

Year after year, the commission 
has persistently pushed for progress 
on its agenda of projects aimed at 
overcoming barriers for university 
women. And its track record is 
impressive. 

It can point to new policies put in 
place in such areas as day care, 
elder care, faculty salary equity, 
women's athletics, recognition of 
women's achievements, inclusive 
language, sexual harassment, im- 
proving undergraduate education 
through a curriculum transforma- 
tion project and a major classroom

climate project. The commission has 
also pushed continually for ag- 
gressive recruitment of women fac- 
ulty and has encouraged more sup- 
port for women to enter non- tradi- 
tional fields. 

Two years ago the commission 
took another significant step toward 
improving the environment for 
women when it appointed a group 
to develop an annual status 
report — a report card on women's 
progress to share with the campus 
community. 

'This report is not intended to be 
comprehensive. It is a useful 
management tool that we can use to 
monitor the environment for wo- 
men on campus annually," says 
commission chair Josephine Withers, 
associate professor of art history 
"Despite the imiversity's best efforts, 
there are no quick fixes; there is no 
panacea to fall back on. But the very 
process of compiling this informa- 
tion and being encouraged to share 
it with the university community 
shows that we are paying attention 
to these very important problems 
and addressing them thoughtfully." 

Special assistant to the president 
Betty Schmitz chaired the Status 
Report subcommittee and wrote 
sections of the report. According to 
Schmitz, 'This report is designed to 
monitor the progress of the campus 
regarding women's issues. It is 
meant to tell us where we've been 
and where we ought to go. We are 
not yet where we would like to be, 
but other institutions aren't even 
tracking these issues, and we are 
viewed as a national leader for the 
efforts we have undertaken." 

The 1990 status report is now 
completed and will be issued short- 
ly. The document, "Women on 
Campus — A Status Report," is not 
intended to be a comprehensive 
review of all issues pertaining to 
women's progress, explains 
Withers. It focuses on questions of 
access and concentrates on several 
areas of particular concern. 

The report includes data on sal- 
ary differentials for full-time em- 
ployees by gender and race, per- 
centages of women in faculty and 
administrative positions, and wo- 
men instructional faculty by rank 
and race. In addition, a separate 
special report looks at the situation 
of women in natural sciences and 
engineering. This report, which will 
be reviewed in next week's Outlook 
was written by Professor Stephen 
Brush of the Department of History 
and Institute for Physical Sciences 
and Technology. 

The following are some conclu- 
sions of the report which assesses 
change for women between 1985 
and 1989: 

•On Women Employees by EEO 
Category: While the percentage of 



total women employees in each 
FEO category has remained 
constant at 43 percent (8,302 in 1985 
and 9,063 in 1989) and there have 
been gains in most categories, a 
pattern across categories shows a 
persistence of gender segregation. 
For instance, there are 92 percent 
women in secretarial /clerical ranks, 
27 percent in administrative posi- 
tions, and 2 percent women in 
skilled crafts. 

•On Average Full-Time Salaries 
by Gender and Race: Salary differ- 
ences between men and women and 
African Americans and whites are 
sizable in many of the EEO cat- 
egories. The report concludes that a 
detailed analysis of faculty salaries 
over the years shows that differen- 
ces in these salaries can be 
attributed primarily to disciplines, 
years of service and market factors. 
Similar studies have not been con- 
ducted of EEO categories, but if 
they were, the report concludes that 
similar factors would prevail. 
"While UMCP has brought in- 
creased numbers of women and 
African Americans into these posi- 
tions (executive, administrative, 
managerial categories) in recent 
years, most of these employees have 
not yet reached the upper levels of 
administration and the higher 
salaries," the report says. 

•On Women in Administration: 
The number of women administra- 
tors has risen from 16 percent in 
1985 to 27 percent in 1989, but few 
women or men of color are among 
these ranks. At the senior adminis- 
trative levei, dean and above, there 
are three white women administra- 
tors. However, we are doing better 
than other universities, since the 
national average for all institutions 
is 1.3, 

•On Women Faculty at College 
Park and Peer Institutions: Be- 
tween 1985 and 1989, the percentage 
of women in each rank gained one 
percentage point, UMCP compares 
favorably with peer institutions at 
professor's rank; however, at 
associate and assistant professor 
levels, it has lagged behind. The 
report concludes that "The lack of 
significant growth in the ranks of 
assistant professors is particularly 
disturbing because this is a major 
pool from which associates and full 
professors will come." 

•On Women Instructional Fac- 
ulty by Rank and Race at College 
Park: This section documents the 
continued low representation of 
African American, Asian, Hispanic, 
and Native American women at all 
faculty ranks. "It is clear that greater 
attention must be placed on re- 
cruiting, retaining, and promoting 
faculty, and especially women of 
color, at all ranks," states the report.

New Program Combines International Business 
and Foreign Language Study 



Some College Park students will 
soon learn that success in the inter- 
national business community de- 
mands more than a passing ac- 
quaintance with a foreign language. 

During the spring semester, a 
group of undergraduate business 
and Spanish students will partici- 
pate in the university's new Inter- 
national Business and Foreign Lan- 
guage Studies Program. The pro- 
gram, a joint venture between the 
College of Business and Manage- 
ment and the College of Arts and 
Humanities, will provide students 
with an intensive education in a 
foreign language and culture as 
they prepare for careers in interna- 
tional business. Initial support for 
the program was provided bv a 
$100,000 U.S. Department of Educa- 



Physical Plant Celebrates 
'We Are Family'

tion grant. The program is also 
among the initiatives funded bv the 
$700,000 grant to establish a Center 
for International Business Education 
and Research that the College oi 
Business and Management received 
from the Department of Education 
last fall. 

"Foreign language programs 
traditionally are geared toward the 
study of hterature or elementary 
language learning. Students who 
aren't language majors usually take 
only a few language classes," says 
Dario Cortes, director of the pro- 
gram and associate dean of grad- 
uate studies and research. 

"However, in order to work in 
today's global market and to func- 
tion effectively it will be necessary 
for students to understand not only 
foreign corporations and business 
practices but also the languages and 
societies out of which these 
emerge." 

Lee Preston, professor of busi- 
ness and management, is coordi- 
nating the program for the College 
of Business and Management. 

While individual courses geared 
toward international business are 
not new, comprehensive programs 
devoted to the subject are a recent 



phenomenon, he says. 

Only a handful of universities 
offer similar programs and most of 
those are at the graduate leveL ac- 
cording to Cortes. College Park's 
program, however, is geared 
toward undergraduates, in part as a 
response to foreign language re- 
quirements outlined in the Pease 
Committee recommendations on 
improving undergraduate educa- 
tion. 

The program's curriculum in- 
cludes a requirement of 120 credits 
that interweave courses in manage- 
ment, language, social science and 
the humanities. Other aspects of the 
program include internships with 
American- and foreign-based 
businesses, study abroad, lecture 
series and opportunities for admis- 
sion in the Language House. 

During its first semester, the 
program will involve only the Col- 
lege of Business and Management 
and the Department of Spanish and 
Portuguese. Other language pro- 
grams — including French, German, 
Chinese, Russian and Japanese — 
wilt become part of the program in 
the near future, Cortes says.

Newton is NAMEPA President 



Jim Newton, assistant to the dean 
for student affairs in the College of 
Engineering, is the new president of 
the National A.ssociation of 
Minority Engineering Program 
Administrators (NAMEPA). He will 
serve for two years 

The a.ssociation membership 
consists of professionals in schools 
and universities, industry and gov- 
ernment who work to promote the 
participation of minorities in engin- 
eering. It enhances the recruitment, 
admission, retention and graduation 
of traditionally under-represented 



minority engineering students by 
working with college-level 
programs and in cooperation with 
pre-college efforts. 

Newton has been involved with 
NAMEPA since 1981 when he 
worked in the College's Center for 
Minorities in Science and Engineer- 
ing. Over the years he has served in 
a variety of capacities including 
positions of leadership within the 
East Coast region, on national com- 
mittees and as an editor of an as- 
sociation handbook.

Mock Trial Team Competes in National Contest 

A team of students from College Park competed in a national 
mock trial competition Feb. 15-17 at Drake University, The team, 
coached by Noel Myricks, a lawyer and associate professor in the 
Department of Family and Community Development, competed in 
the contest for the second time. Last year, College Park won a trophy 
as "Outstanding New School." Results of this year's competition, 
which featured 1 12 teams from universities throughout the country, 
will be announced this week. The team held practice sessions with 
local judges at Mcintgomery County Circuit Court and U.S. District 
in Washington in preparation for the competition. 




Seven Faculty Members Receive Creative 
and Performing Arts Awards for 1991-92 



Each year the School of Graduate 
Studies and Research provides 
funds to select faculty members to 
support their creative and perform- 
ing arts projects. 

These Creative and Performing 
Arts Awards (CAPA) provide funds 
for travel, materials and free time 
that allow writers, dancers, painters, 
architects and other creative persons 
to work on their craft. 

The hoard governing these funds 
recently made awards for 1991-92 to 
seven faculty members. They are: 
Brian Kelly (Architecture), Tadeusz 
Lapinski (Art), John McCarty (Art), 
Joan D, Frosch-Schroder (Dance), 
Susan Leonardi (Fnglish), Bradford 
Gowen (Music) and Robert McCoy 
(Music). 

Here is a description of the proj- 
ect that each award winner will 
pursue; 

• Kelly, assistant professor of 
architecture, will examine the role 
of landscape in American architec- 
ture. According tt) Kelly, before 
World War 11, a tradition of stew- 
ardship of the landscape in Ameri- 
can architecture existed that has 
since declined. Kelly will study ex- 
amples from this tradition such as 
Diunbnrton Oaks, and, bv con- 
structing drawings and plans of 
such buildings and landscapes, 
make these past ideas more acces- 
sible to contemporary architects. 

• Lapinski, professor of art and 
internationally known lithographer, 
will produce a series of large prints. 
In his work, he will develop wnll- 
size images in which he combines 
several individual prints into one 
large work. Examples of this work 
will be included in forthcoming 
exhibitions in Poland, Italy and 
Yugoslavia. 

• McCarty, assistant professor of 
art, will conduct research related to 
his sculpture in Berlin, Prague, and 
what was formerly East Germany. 
Several years ago, the artist traveled 



to Berlin and found that his 
observations of the Berlin Wall 
influenced his work. He will re- 
explore that influence in light of 
changes wrought by destruction of 
the Wall. 

• Frosch-Schroder, assistant 
professor of dance, will work with 
members of the Ghanaian com- 
munity in Washington D.C. to de- 
velop a modified version of Nutata, 
a Ghanaian coming of age ceremony 
for girls. As part of the project, 
Frosch-Schroder is dealing with the 
question of how cultural traditions 
can be integrated into modem 
societies. In its traditional form, 
Nutata is a week-long 

ceremony — an unrealistic commit- 
ment for persons living and work- 
ing in contemporary Washington. 
Frosch-Schroder, who has studied 
Ghanaian dance, is working on how 
to modify the ceremony while 
maintaining its integrity. 

• Bradford Gowen, associate 
professor of music and head of the 
department's piano division, will 
concentrate on the music of Ameri- 
can composers from the 1930s and 
1940s including Irving Fine, Robert 
Kurka and Vincent Persichetti. Not 
only will Gowen work with music 
new to him, but he will also explore 
new ways of playing. For the past 
five years, Gowen has suffered from 
a performance-related injury. 
Through a long period of research 
and reflection on the physical aspect 
of perforining, Gowen has revised 
his technique — theoretically — and 
wil! now work to put his new ideas 
into practice. 

• f^obert McCoy, associate pro- 
fessor of music, will develop a Rus- 
sian song repertoire for voice and 
piano from the work of such com- 
posers as Arensky, Glinka, Gliere, 
Borodin and Tchaikovsky. Much of 
the vocal repertoire of these com- 
posers is largely unknown to the 
musical public. McCoy, a pianist, 




Tadeusz Lapinski will work on a new series of lithographs with a t991-92 
Creative and Performing Arts grant. Lapinski's 1965 lithograph, "Mediation," 
is an example of his work. 

will collaborate with mezzo-so- 
prano Linn Maxwell, a College Park 
graduate, on the project. A compact 
disc is expected to result from the 
project. 

• Susan Leonardi, associate pro- 
fessor of English, will complete the 
writing of a short story collection 
entitled "Nun Stories." The project 
includes eight stories set in a wo- 
men's monastery in California's 
Sierra foothills. Leonardi has com- 
pleted first drafts of all but one of 
the stories and will work on refining 
and revising the stories.

Psychology Program Brings Mental 
Health Services to Elderly People 



"The elderly are often much more 
hesitant about seeking help from a 
mental heaith clinic or professional," 
savs Bruce Fretz, professor of 
p.'iychology and director of the 
NlMH-funded Geropsychology 
Practicum [Placement Program for 
minuritv psychology trainees. 

"The elderly do not readily seek 
out help when they are lonely and 
depressed," he adds. 

Fretz aiid his predoctoral gero- 
psychology trainees are helping to 
solve this problem by taking mental 
health care to the elderly in non- 
traditional settings, such as acute 
care hospitals, mobile menta! health 
clinics, income-assisted seniors 
residences, and adult day care 
centers. 

The first contacts of many elderly 
persons with mental health pro- 
fessionals, at least for those not di- 
rectly committed to psvchiatric hos- 
pitals or nursing homes, are most 
likely to occur through the consul- 
tation requests from residential 
communities, and hospitals, or re- 
ferral from emergency rooms, adult 
protectitm services, churches and 
family service agencies, he says. 

"You can't force services on 
someone," says Michelle HoUiday, a 
student trainee in the prograni. "But 
you can j^et vour foot in the door by 
establishing a rapport and opening 



up an individual to the idea of using 
mental health services." 

Holiiday recalled an elderly 
schizophrenic woman who would 
not allow Holiiday to enter her 
home. 

"For most of the time 1 was 
visiting her — two and a half 
months — 1 had to talk to her from 
the second floor landing," says 
Hollidav. 

But slowly, Hollidav was able to 
win the woman's tritst, eventually 
convincing her to take a trip to the' 
mall and have lunch with Holiiday 
and the elderly woman's caregiver. 

By overcoming this uncertainty 
and encou raffing the elderly to seek 
help from the mental health field, 
says Fretz, more can be done in 
preventing mental health problems 
seen in the elderly, such as depres- 
sion. 

"The more depressed a person is 
the less able he or she is to take care 
of themselves, ' says Fretz. "They 
become so depressed that they can 
no longer care for themselves, 
although they are physically able." 

Fretz savs that he encourages 
students in the pmgram to develop 
what he calls a "lobby relationship." 
Students are told to deliberately 
spend time in the lobby of senior 
citizens' residences — usually a pop- 
ular meeting place. 



"Before long the word gets 
around and people are wondering, 
'who is that person in the lobby?' " 
says Fretz. 

Soon conversations begin and 
trust is established, as the student is 
introduced to one elderly person by 
another. 

"Usually, by the time the student 
has been in the residence for a 
month,- his or her schedule book is 
verv full," he says. 

Fretz has been pleased with the 
outcomes for both the students in 
training and the elderly who are 
being helped. 

"We're helping the elderly to 
understand and deal with such 
issues as transition, suddenly hav- 
ing to leave one's homo, and the 
loneliness that often accompanies 
that transition," he savs. 

"Students trained in these set- 
tings," he adds, "iearn not only how 
to provide psychological ser\ice to 
needy elderly, but al.s(i learn how 
the other professional services in 
such settings might be modified to 
provide an environment that in- 
cludes a greater number of features 
that can help in the prevention of 
both physical and mental health 
problems."

Campus Women Describe Their 
Involvement with Civil Rights 



Rhonda Williams 



For several university women 
who came of age in the midst of the 
Civil Rights movement, the struggle 
reached so far as to touch the pencil 
sharpener in a second grade 
classroom. 

Six campus women, four faculty- 
staff members and two students, 
described their experience with and 
relationship to the Civil Rights 
movement in a recent Women 
Studies-sponsored workshop, "We 
Were There: African- American Wo- 
men and the Civil Rights Move- 
ment," held in association with 
Black History Month, The women 
spanned a generational line that 
included college students of the 
early l%Os and current undergrad- 
uates. And all made clear that Civil 
Rights is not something in their 
pasts — the struggle continues to res- 
onate in their lives. 

Gladys Brown, director of the 
Office of Human Relations, opened 
the program by telling her tale of 
the pencil sharpener, a story that 
illustrated how fundamentally the 
issue of equal rights has affected the 
lives of these African American 
women. 

As a second -grader in a Balti- 
more elementary school in the late 
]430s, Bnvwn found herself in a 
classroom that was integrated in a 
legal sense only. Black and white 
students were assigned seats on 
opposite sides of the room, with 
black students prohibited from en- 
croaching on the white side after the 
final bell. 

Not coinciden tally, the amenities 
of the classroom — the teacher's 
desk, the plants, the waste can and 
the pencil sharpener — all sat on the 
white side. Faced with this elemen- 
tary segregation. Brown waged her 
first protest action. One day, she 
crossed the dividing line after the 
bell and earned her first suspension. 

Throughout her childhood and 
young adulthood in Baltimore, 
Brown faced and resisted similar 
obstacles. She described how she 
and friends took guerilla sips from a 
"white only" drinking fountain in a 
nearby neighborhood park; in high 
school she faced the gnashing teeth 
of a police dog during a protest 
against inequitable discipline 
policies; at law school she helped 
organize action against a dean who 
felt that the grade of "A" was be- 
yond the abilities of black students, 

I laving experienced and fought 
such inequities as a youth. Brown 
described an adult career as a law- 
yer that has revolved around ques- 
tions of social justice— housing, the 
rights of prisoners and her current 
role with the university. 

"A movement starts with other 
individuals moving toward a com- 
mon goal," she said, 

Mary Cothran, director of the 
o f f ice o f M i nor i ty S tu d e n t Ed u ca - 
tion, described how witnessing both 



the distressing and inspiring sides 
of the Civil Rights stniggle 
influenced her. 

The Alabama native recalled 
such demoralizing sights as the 
stoning of buses of visiting Freedom 
Marchers and a school field trip to a 
hospital where black patients were 
treated separately and inadequately. 
By contrast, she remembered the 
hopefulness in hearing the Civil 
Rights cause articulated positively 
through the speeches and writings 
of Martin Luther King Jr. 

For Cothran, these experiences as 
a young adult affirmed her belief in 
the importance of political and 
social action. 

"We're still in the civil rights 
struggle," she said. "You must know 
who you are, what you believe and 
then act on your beliefs." 

Sharon Harley, associate profes- 
sor of Afro-American Studies, des- 
cribed the nurturing of her personal 
radicalization in the late 1%0s at an 
eminently conservative institution: 
the St. Mary -of-the- Woods women's 
college in Terre Haute, Ind. The 
Washington D.C. native described 
the edifying parallel of the racism of 
an overwhelmingly white college 
and the counsel of a Black Panther 
roommate. 

Harley soon joined the Black 
Panthers herself and, along with her 
roommate, "borrowed" food from 
the campus dining hall to distribute 
to the poor. On commencement day, 
to the chagrin of her parents, she 
wore a huge Black Panther button 
on her graduation gown. 

While somewhat self-effacing in 
discussing her Black Panther days, 
she noted the link between that ex- 
perience and the scholarly work she 
has since done. When she returned 
to Washington, D.C. as a graduate 
student at Howard University, she 
and radical friends pushed hard to 
search for the role of wt)men in 
African American history. 

"In many ways, I'm a revolu- 
tionary in professional attire,..l be- 
lieve that everything you do should 



be designed to help with the 
struggle," Harley says. 
Rhonda Williams, assistant pro- 
fessor of Afro- American Studies, 
was born in 1957 and was a child 
when the movement became most 
active. She recalled her parents 
forming a fair housing commission 
in Athens, Ohio. One reason: to help 
in the search for a family home after 
her father became the first black 
faculty member at a university 
there. 

Her father's later move to a uni- 
versity in Bellingham, Wash. — 
another communitv undistin- 
guished by its cultural diversity — 
furthered her sense that society re- 
mained in need of change. As a 
junior high student there, Williams 
listened as her classmates discussed 
urban riots elsewhere in the 
country. 

"Why can't other black people be 
like the Williamses?" several 
classmates asked. Williams did not 
take the comment as a compliment. 

Through her parents, Williams 
saw an example of activism, and 
through her own experiences the 
continuing need for activism. 

"It is crucial for young people of 
each generation to be exposed to the 
struggle. ..That's what 1 see as being 
my w'ork as a teacher," Williams 
said. 

Undergraduate students Maieka 
Hansard and Robin Burt affirmed 
that the issues discussed by the fac- 
ulty-staff members remained alive 
for their generation. 

"It's important to help others to 
understand who you are, to share 
that with people who do not un- 
derstand your culture," Burt said.
