40-Hour Work Week: New Policy 
Goes into Effect 

As of Ihe pay cycle beginning 
July 14, all university classified and 
associate staff will begin working a 
40-hour week — unless some last 
minute legal magic in an Anne 
Arundel County Circuit court tem- 
porarily delays the onset of what is 
undoubtedly one of the most con- 
troversial governor's executive 
orders in years. 

After the UM System Board of 
Regents voted on June 19 to estab- 
lish the longer work week for uni- 
versity employees. President 
William E. Kirwan, in a letter to the 
campus community, said: "An out- 
pouring of community support for 
those affected has come from all 
corners of the campus," and he 
asked the community to find as 
many ways as possible to express 

The first inkling of a possible 
expansion of the university work- 
week surfaced just seven months 
ago, on January 1, 1991, when Gov- 
ernor Schaefer issued Executive Or- 
der 01.01.1991.15. It decreed that all 
state employees would begin to 
work a 40-hour w^eek in February. 
The ostensible reason for the unex- 
pected order: to increase employee 
productivity during the state's cur- 
rent budget difficulties.

for a review of some of 

the problems, prospects 

and plans concerning 

agriculture at Maryland. 

Not surprisingly, there was an 
immediate outburst of negative 
reaction to the plan that will stretch 
the work week for about half of the 
state's employees without a cor- 
responding pay increase. In 
response to the outcry, the gover- 
nor temporarily suspended the 
order, but once more, on February 
27, he announced it would go into 
effect as of July 1. 

Under a 1942 state personnel 
policy, about half of the state's 
80,000 employees have worked 35 
1 /2 or 37 1 /2 hours per week. 
However, personnel policies for 
university employees are under a 
separate jurisdiction, set by the 
UMS Board of Regents, as estab- 
lished by the legislature. As a 
result, the regents were placed in a 
position of having to decide wheth- 
er they should approve a separate 
resolution adopting the 40-hour 
week for the university system. On 
January 24 the board voted in favor 
of such a resolution — only to 
rescind it a few weeks later when 
the governor delayed implementa- 
tion of his order until July 1. This 
left the regents in the position of 
having to consider the matter once

Marilyn Berman Named 
Outstanding Woman of the Year 

Marilyn Berman, associate dean 
of the College of Engineering, has 
been named College Park's Out- 
standing Woman of the Year. The 
award, made by the President's 
Commission on Women's Affairs, 
will be presented during cere- 
monies September 24 in Room 1400 
Marie Mount. A reception will fol- 
low in the Maryland Room. 

Berman was cited for her role as 
catalyst, mentor and champion in 
the college's drive to increase the 
number of women and minority 
students pursuing engineering 
degrees. When she joined the Col- 
lege of Engineering, fewer than one 
percent of its majors were women. 
Today, in large part because of her 
efforts, nearly one of every five un- 
dergraduate students in the college 
is a woman, 

Berman has been affiliated with 
College Park since 1972 when she 
was a graduate assistant in the 
General Undergraduate Advise- 
ment Office. She joined the college 
as a counselor in the dean's office 
in 1974 and was named assistant 
dean in 1979. 

During the 1987-88 academic 
year, she served as assistant to 
then-University of Maryland Presi- 
dent John Toll. She was appointed 
associate dean in 1988 and is one of 
the few women who hold this rank 
at a school of engineering. 

Berman has long been involved 

with minority and women's pro- 
grams in engineering. Since the 
1970s, she has developed and 
directed innovative summer pro- 
grams for high school minority and 
women students and public school 
counselors and teachers. 

Through her efforts, the Center 
for Minorities in Science and Engi- 
neering was established within the 
college in 1981. She also was 
instrumental in organizing the 
Maryland Student Chapter of the 
Society of Women Engineers and 
has served as SWE's faculty advi- 
sor since 1974. Twice she has won 
the university's Outstanding Advi- 
sor Award for Distinguished Ser- 

The National Science Found- 
ation recently awarded Berman 
grants to supprort two programs. 
One is a joint project with Prince 
George's Community College 
called Science and You (SAY). It is 
designed to attract graduating high 
school women into science and en- 
gineering careers. The other grant 
funded a national workshop on 
mathematics and engineering edu- 
cation reform held in June, 

Berman holds a B.A. degree, 
cum laude, from Brooklyn College, 
City University of New York, an 
M.A. in counseling and personnel 
services and a Ph.D. in higher edu- 
cation administration, both from 
College Park.

Longer Work Week Begins 

contintieti from page I 

Joan McKee 

On May 30, the commUtee pre- 
sented the Spencer Report, (as it 
was informally named for commit- 
tee chair, UMS Deputy Chancellor 
Jean Spencer) to the Educational 
Policy and Finance committees of 
the Board of Regents. At that meet- 
ing, after hearing statements from 
employees who were in opposition 
to the resolution and after some 
discussion of the Spencer Report, 
the regents decided not to approve 
it. However, they asked the com- 
mittee to return with improve- 
ments to the report at its next 
meeting on June 19. 

At that June meeting, the 
Spencer Report was not presented 
in revised form; instead, the chan- 
cellor outlined some options that 
campuses might use to try to mini- 
mize the impact of the lengthened 
work week. 

All the regents, save one, voted 
for the resolution adopting the 40- 
hour work week. The lone holdout 
was Regent Connie Unseld, who 
said, "I had to let them [classified 
staff] understand 1 was supportive 
of their concerns. After listening to 
both sides, I felt empathy," 

According to the Sp»encer 
Report, 81.4 percent of those 
impacted by the increased work 
week at College Park will be 
women. Since no pay increase 
accompanies the expanded work 
week, the 4 1/2 hour increase in 
weekly worktime amounts to an 
approximate 12 percent pay cut for 
the more than 5,0(X) UMS clerical 
workers affected, most of whom 
earn less than $25,000 a year. The 
impact is exacerbated by the fact 
that no cost-of-living or merit 
increment has been awarded to 
state employees for the year start- 
ing July 1, 

At College Park, in fall 1990, the 
number of classified staff was 
3,080, of whom 1 ,850 are women. 
In addition, the 670 associate staff, 
of whom 312 are women, will work 
more hours. 

At both the May and June meet- 
ings, many UMCP employees felt 
the issue was so important they 
took annual leave to express their 
opposition to the plan. At the May 
30 board meeting, UMCP employee 
Joan McKee, who chairs the Ad 
Hoc Committee on the 40-Hour 
Work Week of the Women's 
Forum, reflected the classified staff 
point of view. Reading a statement 
for Beth Vanfossen, Towson State 
University, who chairs the UMS 
Women's Forum, McKee said: "As 
you know, state employees current- 
ly work two different work weeks: 
office, clerical, and administrative 
staff, who are mainly women, were 
hired under an understanding of 
the 35.5 hour work week, with a 
pay scale to match that schedule of 
work; all other classes, mainly 
male, were hired under a 40-hour 
work week with their pay adjusted 
to that degree of work. 

"Because 92 jserccnt of the UMS 
employees who currently work a 

35.5 hour work week are women, it 
is widely and correctly perceived 
that the Executive Order will dis- 
proportionately impact on women, 
introducing new gender inequities 
into the pay structure of the UM 
System. These new inequities will 
be very difficult to remove once the 
State of Maiyland is back on its 
feet financially. 

"There are other issues as well. 
For example, without an increase in 
pay, many women employees who 
are working mothers will face con- 
siderable difficulty in adjusting 
their responsibilities for children as 
a result of their increased hours 
spent at work. The extra expenses 
they will face for additional day 
care coverage is one example of 
how the costs of this measure, 
which is designed to save money 
for the state, will be borne by the 

In a move to block the gover- 
nor's order after the board's action 
on June 19, Council 92 of the 
American Federation of Stale, 
County and Municipal Employees 
(AFSCME) filed suit in Anne Arun- 
del County Circuit Court. Stating 
that a 35 1/2 hour work week has 
existed for 67 percent of the state 
work force since 1942, AFSCME 
contended that extending the week 
to 40 hours without increasing sal- 
aries is illegal, unfair and a breach 
of contract. Lawyers on both sides 
agree that the issue is headed for a 
decision by a Court of Appeals. 

The AFSCME lawsuit is similar 
to one filed May 1 by the Maryland 
Classified Employees Assn. The 
unions argue that the state consti- 
tution does not give the governor 
the power to change employees 
working hours, that only the legis- 
lature can amend state employees' 
pay plans, and that the order dis- 
criminates against women. 

In another legal challenge to the 
order, UMCP employee Gloria 
Chawla filed an EEOC suit that has 
already been considered by the Bal- 
timore office of EEOC and is cur- 
rently being reviewed by the Wash- 
ington, D.C. EEOC office. 

Meanwhile, the university is 
moving to implement the longer 
work week. 

Director of Personnel Services 
Dale Anderson has developed 
guidelines to clarify questions 
regarding the longer working day. 
The guidelines pertain to such is- 
sues as possible hours of work, ad- 
justment of annual, sick and per- 
sonal leave time, and official office 
hours. In part, they include the fol- 

• Hours for part-time employees 
who are paid in proportion to a 35 
1 /2 or 37 1 /2 hour week will be 
adjusted proportionately; 

• Increased work hours will not 
affect salaries. New hourly rates 
will be based on a 40-hour work 

• Split appointments will be 
changed centrally. 

• Annual, sick and personal leave 
balances will be automaticelly ad- 

justed so no leave will be lost. 
Leave balances will be adjusted by 
.9 hour for each 7.1 hours of 
accrued leave to bring balances in 
line with 40-hour work week. 

• The official campus business day 
will be 8:30 to 4:30 p.m.; all depart- 
ments will be open for business 
during these hours, including noon 
to 1 p.m. 

• Supervisors are encouraged to 
be flexible in approving new 
schedules, with a list of possible 
workday hours including a number 
of options, ranging from 8 a,m, to 
4:30 p.m., five-day week, one-half 
hour lunch, to a 7 a.m, to 6 p.m., 4 
day week, one hour lunch. 

• To give employees a chance to 
adjust, a six-week transition period 
starting July 14 will also be 
invoked, with employees allowed 
to use up to one hour per day from 
comp time, personal leave, accrued 
annual leave, or by working during 
their lunch break to apply toward 
their 40-hour work week. 

President Kirwan has restated 
that campus offices should seek the 
greatest flexibility possible to 
accommodate the staff as the tran- 
sition takes place. He also is plac- 
ing a high priority on working 
with the system office to initiate 
"appropriate compensation for the 
extra hours of work." 

Meanwhile, classified employees 
have not given up their ongoing 
campaign to push for increased 
pay for the additional hours 
worked. Members of the Women's 
Forum have been invited to meet 
with the legislative Women's 
Caucus this fall, and are backing 
the various legal actions that are 

And, despite what has hap- 
pened thus far, they insist that the 
final story has not yet been told.

Physical Plant Reduces 
Housekeeping Service 

Faced with budget cuts of nearly 
$1.2 million and a lack of new staff, 
the Department of Physical Plant is 
cutting back housekeeping services 
in more than 5,1 (X) administrative 
and research offices at College 

The cutback will affect all 
administrative and research offices. 
Under the plan, expected to go into 
effect in early July, cleaning and 
trash removal services by physical 
plant will he significantly reduced, 
says Frank Brev/er, director of 
physical plant. 

"These changes can only be 
described as major," Brewer says. 

In addition, physical plant is 
eliminating a variety of other ser- 
vices including free key replace- 
ment, carpet repairs, minor win- 
dow repairs and preparation and 
cleanup for most departmental spe- 
cial events. Saturday, Sunday and 
holiday cleaning also have been 

As part of the housekeeping 
cuts, offices will be visited just 
once every two weeks by a physi- 
cal plant housekeeper. During 
those visits, the worker will 
vacuum or mop the office— activ- 
ities now performed daily. 

The housekeeper will no longer 
remove trash from offices — a ser- 

vice now performed daily. Instead, 
trash must be collected in desig- 
nated areas in each building and 
will be picked up twice weekly. 

New schedules for housekeep- 
ing and trash pickup are being dis- 
tributed to campus departments 
and offices by physical plant, 
Brewer says. Housekeeping was 
targeted for cuts in part because 
office workers feel a high sense of 
"ownership" of their work areas 
and likely will keep their areas in 
order despite the reduction in ser- 
vice. Brewer says. 

Budget reductions and under- 
staffing in physical plant prompted 
the changes, according to Brewer. 
Budget reductions totaling $1.2 mil- 
lion for FY91 and FY92 have forced 
the department to eliminate 69 
positions (59 of which are contract 
positions). Brewer says. 

In addition, the department has 
not received new staff for house- 
keeping services in newly opened 
buildings such as the Administra- 
tive Services Building and the Agri- 
cultural/Life Sciences Surge Build- 
ing. In FY91 and FY92 budgets, the 
department did not receive 61 posi- 
tions needed to fully staff the addi- 
tional space, he says. 

In all, physical plant, which cur- 
rently has 80O positions, is 130 

positions short of full strength, ac- 
cording to Brewer. 

Restoration of the reduced ser- 
vices depends on future funding of 
physical plant. 

"We're hoping this is a tempor- 
ary measure, but we will be operat- 
ing as if it will be permanent," 
Brewer says. 

The situation, however, may get 
worse before it improves. The new 
College of Business and Manage- 
ment and School of Public Affairs 
Building and the A.V. Williams II 
building are scheduled for comple- 
tion during spring 1992. With no 
new staff slated for those new 
spaces, the current physical plant 
staff may become further extended. 
Brewer says.

Four Faculty Win 1991 Presidential Young 
Investigator Awards 

Jayavent P. Gore 

Manoussos Grilfakis 

Wllliem Pugh 

Four College Park assistant pro- 
fessors have won 1991 Presidential 
Young Investigator (PYl) Awards 
from the National Science Founda- 
tion. They are among 220 academic 
scientists and engineers nationally 
selected to receive the award. The 
PYl awards are among the most 
prestigious and sought after 
awards for young faculty. 

The four bring to 28 the number 
of promising young College Park 
researchers who have won these 
highly competitive awards since 
they were created by N5F in 1983. 
The program represents a partner- 
ship among private industry, the 
federal government, the investi- 
gators, and their academic institu- 

The four College Park faculty 
members are: Jayavant Gore, 
Department of Mechanical Engi- 
neering; Manoussos Crillakis, 
Department of Mathematics; Wil- 
liam Pugh, Department of Com- 
puter Science, and Janice E. Reutt- 
Robey, Department of Chemistry. 

The PYl award provides a grant 
of $25,000 per year from NSF for 
five years. In addition, each dollar 
of industrial support is matched by 
NSF on a dollar-for-dollar basis up 
to a total annual grant of $1(X),0{)0. 

Gore, who is an authority on 
combustion, radiation and heat 
transfer, will focus on the develop- 
ment of advanced high efficiency 
furnaces using environmentally 

benign fuels and new radiative en- 
hancement concepts. 

Grillakis' field of research is par- 
Hal differential equations and in 
particular equations of hyperbolic 
type that describe the propagation 
and interaction of waves in a vari- 
ety of contexts, for example in 
acoustics, electromagnetism and the 
classical description of elementary 
particles. His current interest is in a 
system of equations that describe 
the propagation of waves on a 
curved surface. 

Pugh's research work involves 
automatic methods for reorganizing 
computer programs to make effec- 
tive use of massive parallelism and 
specialized programming 
languages designed for computa- 
tionally intensive scientific prob- 
lems such as weather prediction 
and air flow modeling, 

Reutt-Ro bey's research focuses 
on chemical dynamics at the gas- 
solid interface. She will use the 
award to develop new experimen- 
tal strategics to examine these pro- 
cesses at the molecular level. 

The 1991 PYl awards were dis- 
tributed among engineering (79), 
mathematical and physical sciences 
(65), computer and information sci- 
ences (33), biological, behavioral 
and social sciences {3t)), and geo- 
sciences (13). Awards to women 
(41) were approximately the same 
as for 1990 (43).

Nominations Sought for President's Medal Awards 

The selection committee for the annual President's Medal 
awards, chaired by Graduate Studies Dean Jack Goldhaber, is 
seeking nominations in three categories. The first, the President's 
Medal, is the highest honor bestowed on a member of the College 
Park community and recognizes significant continuing accomplish- 
ments on behalf of the university. The other two awards are for 
outstanding associate and classified staff members whose efforts 
have enriched the campus community. Deadlines are Aug. 3 for 
the associate and classified staff awards and Sept, 4 for the Presi- 
dent's Medal. Call 40S-4175 for information. 

Regents Approve Name for New 
Agriculture Institute 

Paul MazzocchI 

It has been widely acknow- 
ledged that problems have long 
existed in the administrative struc- 
ture of agricultural programs at 

Despite the fact that during the 
past decade two different external 
review teams produced reports 
suggesting ways to change the 
structure and reduce inefficiencies, 
no new system has been developed 
to deal more effectively with the 
complicated relationships binding 
together the Maryland Agricultural 
Experiment Station (AES), the 
Maryland Cooperative Extension 

Service (CES) and UMCP's College 
of Agriculture, 

The most complex issue that 
continues to divide the units has 
centered on the direction and con- 
trol of AES and CES resources in 
academic departments of the 
UMCP College of Agriculture. 
Recently, this problem has been 
exacerbated by a proposed joint 
venture between AES and the U.S. 
Depl. of Agriculture to create a 
new cooperative institute (INRES) 
that would be located in a new 
building in Beltsvillc. 

Just a few weeks ago the UMS 
Board of Regents forged another 
new, and controversial, link in the 
agricultural chain that has bound 
the three units. Although College 
Park faculty had demonstrated a 
notable lack of support for the 
plan, the regents approved a sys- 
tem recommendation to name a 
new institute, the Maryland Insti- 
tute for Agriculture and Natural 
Resources (MIANR). The new unit 
will bring under one administrative 
umbrella the Maryland Agricul- 
tural Experiment Station (AES) and 
the Maryland CcK)f>erative Exten- 
sion Service fCES). At the same 
time, the regents also elevated Vice 
Chancellor for Agriculture and 

Natural Resources Raymond J. 
Miller to the position of president 
of the new institute. 

The move, intended to give the 
two units "a unified and strength- 
ened identity," reflects a change in 
name and title only, according to 
Chancellor Donald Langenberg, 
who described the action as simply 
a matter of making "two small ad- 
ministrative nomenclature 
changes." However, many College 
Park agriculture faculty disagreed, 
and an overflow crowd showed up 
at a system meeting called to 
explain the rationale for the name 

The primary problem in the cur- 
rent structure relates to the fact 
that, unlike that of most other uni- 
versity systems, the administration 
of Maryland's land grant functions 
of teaching, research and extension 
are split among UMCP and other 
units in the system governed by 
three separate and independent 
lines of authority. Two of these 
units, AES (primarily a research 
unit that seeks to solve agricultural 
and related business and environ- 
mental problems), and CES (the 
unit that dispenses advice to farm- 
ers, agribusinesses, and consum- 
ers), were moved from College 
Park to the system thirteen years 

Meanwhile, the College of 
Agriculture is located at UMCP 
and is administratively separated 
from AES and CES. This situation 
has led to conflicts in authority 
over the use of faculty time, grant 
money, accountability, and respon- 
sibility and has caused uncertainty 
and frustration on many fronts. 

A comparison of Maryland's 
land grant structure with that of 
other universities highlights the 
fact that Maryland's system is 
unique. Forty states have land 
grant administrative structures 
where one individual supervises 
teaching, research and extension at 
the campus level. An overwhelm- 
ing majority — 48 states — have one 
person supervising teaching and 
research at the campus level {only 
Louisiana and Maryland are excep- 
tions). In 48 states both AES and 
CES are located on the land grant 
campus, and in 49 states AES is 
located on the land grant campus. 

At the May 30 meeting of the 
UMS Board of Regents, College 
Park President William E. Kirwan 
discussed the deficiencies that exist 
in the current agricultural struc- 
ture. 'These problems are real, not 
simply a perception about UMCP," 
he said, reviewing how College 
Park has pressed to have the defici- 
encies addressed since 1984, first 
through the York Committee and 
then by appointing the Vanderhoef 
Committee to find solutions to the 
organizational problem in 1989. 
Each group issued a report recom- 
mending a different organizational 
approach, but neither set of recom- 
mendations was adopted. 

Of the existing structure, Kirwan 

told the regents, 'Three indepen- 
dent lines of authority — two of 
which go off -campus — impose con- 
flicting objectives on departments, 
and the structure has a debilitating 
effect on departments and faculty." 

UMCP agricultural and resource 
economics professor Richard Just 
reinforced the president's view, 
saying: "A loss of coordination and 
stability in the current system has 
resulted in a number of negative 
conditions: an inability to act in a 
timely manner, difficulty of manag- 
ing long-term research, loss of at- 
traction for high-quality faculty, 
uncertainty of filling open posi- 
tions, uncertainty of who will judge 
productivity and by what stan- 
dards, and a potential inequity of 
rewards among alternative promo- 
tion and tenure systems." 

Despite these persistent prob- 
lems. College Park has continued 
to place a high priority on funding 
agricultural programs. Its agricul- 
ture instructional budget has 
increased 66 percent since 1988, a 
rate higher than the campus aver- 
age. Between 1990 and 1995, $110 
million of facilities for agricultural- 
ly related activities will have come 
on line, and more than $50 million 
worth of these facilities were built 
explicitly for AES and CES activ- 
ities at UMCP, Kirwan told the 
regents. 'The issue is not if agricul- 
tural activities and resources are to 
remain on campus; the issue is 
what is the appropriate administra- 
tive structure to put in place to op- 
timize the use of these resources," 
he said. 

Now that the regents have 
named MIANR as the new agricul- 
tural unit in the system, agreement 

continued (m ptige 5

sion Service (MCES) in connection 
with each Land Grant College. 

• As the result of a UM Board of 
Regents' action, since 1978 AES and 
CES have been located at the UM 
System level. However, academic 
departments in UMCP's College of 
Agriculture derive almost 70 per- 
cent of their operating support 
from AES and CES while providing 
the vast majority of AES research 
and state wiue support for local 
CES extension activities.

Kabukl/Shakespeare Project Underway at College Park 

Thirty secondary school teachers from 10 stales are at College 
Park this month to participate in the third Theatre East and West 
program, a cross-cultural study of Shakespearean and Kabuki 
theater. After three weeks of study this summer, the teachers will 
travel to Japan next year to complete the program. The Center for 
Renaissance and Baroque Studies, the Department of Hebrew and 
East Asian Languages and Literatures and the International Center 
for the Study of Education Policy and Human Values are 
CO- sponsors of the program. It has been funded for three years with 
$550,000 in grants from the National Endowment for the 

on how AES and CES will interface 
with the College of Agriculture be- 
comes even more imperative. Dis- 
cussions are expected to extend 
through the summer months in or- 
der to meet the regents' directive 
that MIANR issues will be placed 
on the September agenda of the 
regents' Committee on Educational 

At the heart of the dialogue are 
interface questions centering on 
administration, faculty governance, 
research and service, personnel, 
and budget policies. 

Some of the thorniest admin- 
istrative issues relate tj the roles of 
the president, former vice chancel- 
lor/now MIANR president, dean 
and directors in dealing with exter- 
nal groups and how these positions 
relate to each other, how chairs 
should be appointed and faculty 
lines be distributed, and what level 
of integration of planning among 
the units would bring optimum 

Faculty governance is another 
sensitive interface issue, with deci- 
sions needed on the roles of faculty 
councils in setting goals for 
research faculty needs and the ex- 
tent to which faculty will parti- 
cipate in governance of the three 

Research and service issues are 
other high agenda items. For 
instance, how the deans and direc- 
tors will coordinate research and 
service activities, how AES and 
CES funds are allocated to faculty 
programs, how funding proposals 
should be administered, what is 
most appropriate regarding space, 
matching support and credit to in- 
dividual units, and how questions 
regarding support for RAs, TAs, 
and fellowship recipients should be 
handled are among other critical 
interface issues that require resolu- 

Toss into the hopper the need to 
agree on personnel policies such as 
appointment, promotion and ten- 
ure decision processes, evaluations, 
split appointments, and retirement 
policies, and the summer discus- 
sion schedule is daunting. 

Who has the ultimate authority 
and responsibility for budget decis- 
ions lies at the heart of the dilem- 
ma. How are departmental and 
proposal budgets developed and 
operating funds managed, what 
about decisions on indirect cost 
return, salary savings, auxiliary 
enterprises, tuition remission decis- 
ions, and appropriate charges for 
space? All these are on the agenda 
for discussion and debate this sum- 

Acting agriculture dean Paul 
Mazzocchi says that "These ques- 
tions have been unresolved for 
many years. We have to view 
MIANR and the fact that these is- 
sues have gotten the attention of 
the chancellor, the regents, the 
governor and the public as the best 
opfwrt unity we are going to have 
to solve these problems." 

Mazzocchi reinforces Kirwan's 
conviction that the California 
Model is the best starting point for 

California Model 



Annual Block Grant 


AES & CES Funding

Assoc. Dir. AES & CES 

of AES 



The California Model was cited in tlie Vanderhoef Report as an effective model. 

a new agricultural organizational 
model at College Park, The Califor- 
nia Model, cited in the Vanderhoef 
Report as an effective model, was 
endorsed in concept in a statement 
by Langenberg at the May Board of 
Regents' meeting. 

If ultimately adopted, proposals 
suggested in the model would go a 
long way toward ensuring that 
teaching, research and extension 
resources at College Park would be 
managed in an integrated fashion, 
rather than continuing to pit the 
individual units against each other 
in competition for scarce funds, 
says Just. 

The proposals would provide 
for accountability in using resour- 
ces wisely and for long-term flexi- 
bility, while maintaining the short- 
term stability required for appro- 
priate research and facilities plan- 
ning and good staffing decisions, 
says Just. 

A suggested plan calls for funds 
to be transferred to UMCP in an 
annual block amount to the College 
of Agriculture, in a yearly negotiat- 
ed transaction between UMCP and 
MIANR, with flexibility to use the 
funds to accomplish a mission 
designed in conjunction with AES 
and CES. Initially, funding would 
be based on the past five-year aver- 
age of the percent, rather than dol- 
lar amount, of AES and CES bud- 
get support for College Park, with 
a commitment for the percentage to 
remain unchanged for five years in 
order to facilitate long-range pro- 
gram planning. 

To ensure accountability, annual 
negotiations between the dean and 
directors would be built in, with 
the dean allocating budget and 

lines among UMCP departments to 
accomplish agreed-upon AES and 
CES programs. The plan would 
specify that space and support for 
faculty and staff be provided by 
UMCP, with funding provided by 
AES and CES. The plan also calls 
for tuition remission policies as 
well as faculty appointment, pro- 
motion and tenure processes that 
would be administered by UMCP. 

"The basic concept is that all the 
administration of agricultural activ- 
ities that takes place on the College 
Park campus should be centered in 
one administrator, the dean," 
explains Just, a central figure in the 
planning process. "Through block 
grants, the dean would be allowed 
autonomy in the decisions about 
AES and CES activities at College 
Park on a day-to-day basis." 

Just says, "If we do not have 
some autonomy over AES and CES 
campus activities, we will continue 
to have conflict. This wnll continue 
to be devastating to productivity 
and will lead to an inability to 
make decisions with the perspec- 
tive of all three functions that need 
to be served," 

"We have an opportunity here to 
build a program of real excellence. 
Through basing our plan on the 
California Model, we can create the 
structure to do this. We can't afford 
to lose this opportunity," says

"We Have a Distance to Go" 

by Sharon Fries-Britt 

The foUowing remarks have been 
excerpted from the luncheon kei/rtote 
talk given by Sharvn Fries-Britt, assis- 
tant to the vice president of Student 
Affairs, at the Personnel Practices 
Conference on June 6. 

...I collected data for this presen- 
tation from real people. I talked to 
many of you in the audience, as 
well as other individuals on cam- 
pus. Four primary themes kept 
recurring in your comments about 
our attitudes towards classified 
staff, i share them with you 
because they bothered me, and 
when things bother me they get 
more of my time and attention. 
More importantly, I hope they 
bother each of you enough that it 
makes a difference in your atti- 
tudes and behaviors. What 1 
learned from you is: 

•We expect the quality of the 
work performed by classified staff 
to be professional, however, we 
treat them like second-class 

• We expect the classified staff to 
be committed to the university 
financially and spiritually, yet they 
are not represented on university 
committees that make major 
decisions. Yes, there is the occas- 
ional representative, but this kind 
of tokenism does not empower a 
group to the degree that is neces- 
sary to influence real change. 

• We expect the classified staff to 
work longer hours or come in 
earlier if we are working on a 
"special" project, but many of us do 
not encourage their participation in 
training programs during the day 
or university ceremonies and acti- 
vities unless it is on their own time. 

•A more recent issue is that we 
expect them to understand that as 
an institution we had nothing to do 
with the 40-hour work week, yet 
I'm not convinced that we have 
taken the time to really understand 
the impact it is having on the qual- 
ity of their lives. 

These four issues can be sum- 
marized as: 1 ) lack of respect; 2) 
lack of representation; 3) lack of 
consideration and 4) lack of pay. 
As a community we must realize 
the chilly climate that our attitudes 
and behaviors are creating for 
some vital members of our cam- 

In my conversations, I also 
learned that you too have a dis- 
tance to go. You must confront: 

•The "in group" and "out group" 
that is developing in your com- 

•You must not get caught up in 
your own status games of who is 
important because they are so and 
so's secretary or so and so's admin- 
istrative aide 1. 

• You must recognize the ethnic 
and cultural diversity that you 

have in your community. Don't 
measure your successes in this area 
by the numbers of women and 
men of color who get involved. 
Rather measure your success by the 
difference that is made in the 
values you establish as a com- 
munity based on the contributions 
of all individuals, including the in- 
dividuals of color. 

• And finally, accept and know 
that you are professional! Do not 
always look for affirmation outside 
of yourself. Continue to assert this 
in your behaviors and actions. 

I'm very proud of the com- 
munity we have at College Park. 
Like any large family, we have our 
issues to work on. We may never 
have all the money we need to 
solve our financial problems, but 
we all know that money alone 
would not solve every problem we

Vocal Arts Events Make Debut 

Not one, but two world-class 
music events are making their 
debuts on the College Park campus 
this summer. 

Last week the first-ever Marian 
Anderson Vocal Arts Competition 
began on July 10. It will run 
through July 20. Overlapping the 
competition will be the First 
American Vocal Arts Congress, 
which begins July 16 and also ends 
on July 20 at the same gala 
Kennedy Center concert. 

Named lo honor America's 
renowned contralto Marian Ander- 
son and following the traditions of 
the highly successful University of 
Maryland International William 
Kapell Piano Competition (now a 
biennial event, taking place next in 
1992), the International Marian 
Anderson Vocal Competition has 
attracted, world-wide interest and 

Offering over $50,000 in prizes, 
including a first prize of $20,000 
and a New York City recital in 
November 1991, the competition 
has invited a select group of the 
world's best young singers to per- 
form for internationally famous 
juries. Two College Park graduates, 
mezzo-soprano Susan Fleming and 
tenor Rot>ert Petillo, are among the 
46 contestants who were chosen 
out of a field of 179 entrants from 
around the world. 

The preliminary and semi-final 
rounds of the competition will take 
place on the College Park campus. 
Competition finals will be in the 
Kennedy Center Concert Hall July 
20, where the four finalists will 
perform an evening of art songs 
and excerpts from oratorios and 

operas with the National Sym- 
phony Orchestra, conducted by 
Alessandro Siciliani. American 
baritone Sherrill Milnes will chair 
the final round jury. 

Milnes is also president of the 
First American Vocal Arts Con- 
gress, a gathering of professional 
singers, teachers, students, and 
opera enthusiasts to explore new 
challenges in the vocal arts and to 
celebrate the achievements of 
American artists and composers. 

Congress events include a recital 
series, "American Works for Voice," 
a lecture-demonstration by the Gol- 
dovsky Foundation, and symposia 
on various topics such as career 
development and performance op- 
portunities and technique. Milnes 
and colleagues also will perform 
two festive evenings of song in 
Tawes Theatre. 

A special testimonial dinner July 
18 on the College Park campus will 
honor Marian Anderson, who is 
expected to be present. 

The congress's opening concert 
is July 16 in Tawes Theatre at 8 
p.m., "Sherrill Milnes and Friends 
1." The Friends include singers 
Martina Arroyo, Charles Bressler, 
Stefka Evstatieva, Nicholas Loren, 
Mady Mesple, Louis Quilico, John 
Shirley -Quirk and Benita Valente, 
with host Robert Sherman of New 
York's classical music radio station, 
WQXR. The program features 
songs by Purcell and Liszt and 
ducts from Verdi's Aida and /( 

The congress's July 19 concert, 
'Sherrill Milnes and Friends II," 
will include performances by 
Milnes, Nedda Casei, Clamma 

Dale, Frances Ginsberg, Jon 
Garrison, Elizabeth Holleque, Faye 
Robinson and Benita Valente, wnth 
Judy Gruber of WGMS as host. The 
program will feature songs by 
Schubert and Gershwin and the 
quartet from Rigolello and a duet 
from La Traviata by Verdi. 

Several members of the univer- 
sity's music faculty are involved in 
the competition and the congress.
