NASA Awards Grant to Establish New Center 
for Commercial Development of Space / 



The University of Maryland at 
College Park has won a $5 million, 
five-year grant from the National 
Aeronautics and Space Administra- 
tion to establish a NASA Center for 
the Commercial Development of 
Space in Satellite and Hybrid Com- 
munication Networks (CCDS). 

The university's proposal was 
submitted to NASA on behalf of a 
multi-university learn that includes 
Johns Hopkins University, as well 
as several Maryland-based high 
tech companies. 

The new center will be a nation- 
al focal point in efforts to commer- 
cialize space-based communication 
technologies. Research will focus 
on developing hybrid satellite/ 
earth communication networks and 
technologies. 

Applications could include im- 
proved teleconferencing, access to 
computer databases, the linking of 
supercomputers, satellite cellular 
telephone networks, personal com- 
munications and other new ser- 
vices. 

The Systems Research Center 
(SRC) will administer the grant and 
partially staff the new center.

Budget Cuts Lead to 
for Employees 

This will be a very difficult 
week for the College Park com- 
munity as it adjusts to the layoff 
notices issued last Tuesday, 

On October 15 about 67 univer- 
sity employees received letters 
from their supervisors informing 
them that, due to a lack of support- 
ing state funds, they will be laid 
off. The 67 people represent two 
percent of the possible College 
Park work force affected by the 
layoff order. 

For the 56 classified employees 
receiving letters, their last day of 
employmenl will be January 13, 
1992, a 90-day termination notice. 
The n associate staff laid off will 
work until November 29, a 45-day 
termination notice that is more 
than the 30 days required by the 
Board of Regents policy on layoff 
for unclassified and classified per- 
sonnel approved on April 25, 1991. 

Those who lost their jobs were 
told that the decision was based 
solely on the university's need to 
react to the state's critical budget 
situation and in no way reflects on 
their abilities or diminishes their 
contributions to their department 
or the campus. 

The university layoff action, un- 
precedented in its history, resulted 
from the current $450 million state 
revenue shortfall that has forced 
another round of funding cuts in 



Layoffs 



the current university state- 
supported operating budget. The 
latest $4.5 million cut was the fifth 
round of state budget cuts in just 
13 months. 

To help employees through the 
layoff process, the campus has set 
up a number of special programs. 
Each employee losing a job has 
been assigned an individual contact 
person from the Personnel Services 
Department; group and individual 
sessions and workshops arc sched- 
uled to explain all procedures, 
rights and responsibilities; and 
representatives from the Faculty /- 
Staff Assistance Program, Counsel- 
ing Center, and Career Develop- 
ment Center have been delegated 
to provide specific information, 
supfjort and assistance with formal 
procedures. 

AT the time of this writing, the 
total of 67 who have lost their jobs 
is divided nearly evenly between 
men and women — the 50 percent 
figure reflecting the current com- 
position of the campus work force. 
Of those laid off, 22 percent are 
black, a number that conforms 
closely to the total non-instruction- 
al work force of 24 percent black 
employees. In terms of salary, the 
average associate staff salary is 
$40,000 and classified salary,

Restructuring Urban Education 

The university's Center for Policy Options in Special Education 
is hosting an invitational meeting on "Restructuring Urban Educa- 
tion; What Does It Mean for Students With Disabihties?" on Oct. 
25-26. The meeting will bring together directors of special educa- 
tion from urban settings, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, 
Miami, New York City, Pittsburgh and San Diego. For more infor- 
mation, call 405-6495.

$22,375, with an overall average of 
$25,231. Men had much higher sal- 
aries than women. 

The overall age for those losing 
their jobs is 41.8 years, with less 
than six month's difference in age 
between men and women. 

In years of service, no overall 
statistics are available, but a clas- 
sified person with 20 years of ser- 
vice was laid off, while an associate 
staff employee vrith more than 7 
years of service was also on the 
list, according to personnel services 
director Dale Anderson. 

TTie president made ail layoff 
policy decisions, allocating to each 
vice president a specific number of 
positions to be eliminated. Each 
vice president passed this informa- 
tion on to unit heads. Unit heads 
were delegated the difficult task of 
determining exactly what positions 
to terminate, based on the fact that 
they were allocated the number of 
lines to be cut with a dollar value 
associated with those lines. Criteria 
were programmatic — for example, 
unit heads looked at the functions 
of positions to try to determine 
which functions were considered to 
be least essential to their oj^eration, 
given the current budget exigen- 
cies. 

Classified staff have reinstate- 
ment rights to other jobs that might 
open up in the future, but, accord- 
ing to the Board of Regents policy, 
associate staff are not automatically 
entitled to similar job rights. How- 
ever, Anderson is encouraging de- 
partments to give job consideration 
to associate staff laid off, even 
though their right to step into a 
vacant job automatically is not 
guaranteed. 

Since this is clearly one of the 
most stressful situations |X)ssible 
for all those involved, every at- 
tempt has been made to assist both 
employees and administrators to 
cope as well as possible with the 
process, says Sylvia Stewart, who 
heads the working group monitor- 
ing the process. 

To help accomplish this, a num- 
ber of individual and group scis- 
sions have been scheduled to start 
immediately. In addition, two 
handbooks — "A Classified Employ- 
ee Guide to Layoffs" and "An 
Associate Staff Guide to Lay- 
offs" — were distributed with indi- 
vidual layoff letters. Another hand- 
book, the "Administrator's Guide 
for Implementing Layoffs," was al- 
so produced to guide departnrtent 
heads through situations they 
might encounter and familiarize 
them with rules and policies that 
will apply. 



The guides contain information 
on: 

• Bumping and reinstatement 
rights (for classified) and restora- 
tion rights (for associate staff); 

• Terminal leave payments for 
annual, sick, and personal leave, 
holidays and compensatory leave; 

• Release time and parking fee 
reimbursement; 

• Outplacement and counseling 
services; 

■ Continuation of specific 
benefits; 

• Filing for unemployment in- 
surance benefits and using the 
Maryland Job Service; and 

• Helpful campus and Dept. of 
Economic Development (Maryland 
Job Service) telephone numbers, 

A number of campus units are 
setting aside special time to help. 

Counseling Center psychologists 
will provide free career and per- 
sonal individual counseling ses- 
sions, as well as free diagnostic 
assessments and career interest 
testing. 

The Career Development Cen- 
ter will hold free day-long 
workshops covering such topics as 
dealing with the emotional aspects 
of a layoff, assessing career inter- 
ests, job skills and resources, job 
goal-setting strategies, networking 
and other job search strategies, 
resume writing and interviewing 
techniques, as well as job vacancy 
listings, databanks, career and oc- 
cupational information, and 
employer information. 

The Health Center's Faculty/- 
Staff Assistance Program will pro- 
vide personal, individual counsel- 
ing up to 10 free sessions to ad- 
dress personal and other problems 
developing as a result of layoff. 
Three group layoff orientation ses- 
sions have been scheduled to re- 
view information and services pro- 
vided, and several outplacement 
workshops are set, including ses- 
sions with people from the Mary- 
land Dept. of Economic and Em- 
ployment Development (DEED) 
who will provide on-site informa- 
tion on unemployment insurance 
and Maryland. Job Service Office 
services. 

Administrators, too, are expect- 
ed to feel stress as the layoff pro- 
cess gets underway. In anticipation, 
the Personnel Services Department 
has prepared guidelines to help 



each department head go through 
the process of notifying employees 
personally, explaining outplace- 
ment activities and counseling ser- 
vices, and following up procedures 
to ensure that each person laid off 
is getting all available help. 

Looking ahead, the current lay- 
off action is part of a painful uni- 
versity budget-cutting process that 
has not ended. By fiscal '93 the uni- 
versity will be required by the state 
to cut a total of 278 positions. This 
initial layoff action was scheduled 
as part of next year's budget re- 
duction process but was accelerat- 
ed because of the current state fis- 
cal crisis. When another cut might 
occur and precisely what additional 
categories of university personnel 
might be affected is still undeter- 
mined. 

Meanwhile, President William E, 
Kirwan has expressed continuing 
concern that further cuts may be 
imposed. 'The state's budget crisis 
continues to have a devastating 
impact the university, and now we 
have been forced to lay off people," 
he says. 

"This is a very sad day for the 
university. I have asked every 
appropriate office to provide sup- 
port services to lesen the impact 
on staff members who have lost 
their jobs. We all feel great 
compassion for those who need our 
support now, and I know that 
everyone will show sensitivity, tact 
and concern for them."

OCTOBER 21, 1991 



Bniner to Deliver Keynote Address at Semiotic Conference 

Distinguished professor and scholar Jeronne Bruner will deJivcr 
the keynote address at the 16th annual meeting of the Semiotic 
Society of America. Bruner has held professorships in psychology 
at several major universities and is widely known for his work on 
perception and learning. His lecture, "Narrative as a Mode of 
Discourse and a Mode of Thought," will be presented Friday, Oct. 
25 at 8 p.m., in the auditorium of the Center for Adult Education. 
The lecture is free and open to the public. For information, call 
Jackson Barry, co-chair of the conference, at 405-3747. 




College Park to Host 

Annual Semiotic Society Conference 



Over 200 participants from 
diverse academic fields and geo- 
graphic locations will gather in 
Collie Park October 25-27 for the 
sixteenth annual conference of the 
Semiotic Society of America. 

"From Paris to Japan to Brazil, 
and from Berkeley to Brown, these 
participants make up a program 
strong in literature, culture studies, 
cinema, linguistics, art, feminism, 
cognitive studies, drama, pedagogy 
and mathematics," says Jackson 
Barry, associate professor of Eng- 
lish and co-chair of the conference. 

Barry emphasizes the interdis- 
ciplinary nature of the conference, 
in which topics range from the 
very practical concerns of the medi- 
cal clinic, to modern film and tele- 
vision, to geometry and logic. 

To say that semiotics is the 
study of meaning is too broad, says 
Barry. "Everything tneans. The 
question is how do we mean? How 
do we understand and communi- 
cate meaning?" 

The study of meaning is not a 
new science, according to Barry. 
The word "semiotics" derives from 
ancient Greek and was used by 
pre-Socratic philosophers on prob- 
lems of evidence, especially as 
these involved medical symptoms. 

Semiotics entered English 
thought through John Locke in the 
seventeenth century. More recently, 
mathematician and logician Charles 



Sanders Peirce (1839-1914), who is 
the subject of six presentations at 
the conference, systematized much 
thinking about the "meaning of 
meaning" in his "pragmatic" philos- 
ophy. 

The university played host to 
one of the most famous of contem- 
porary semioticians last April when 
Umberto Eco packed the auditor- 
ium of the physics building with 
his lecture, "The Quest for the 
Perfect Langiiage in Western 
Culture." 

"It's exciting to have the confer- 
ence here in College Park," notes 
Barry, "because most of the major 
centers for the study of semiotics 
are in the mid-west or California." 

The three-day conference v^dll 
include presentations from several 
College Park faculty members and 
graduate students. From the Eng- 
lish department, Mark Turner has 
organized a major panel on Cogni- 
tive Science and Semiotics, and 
Martha Smith will analyze some of 
the stylistic traits of singer Bruce 
Springsteen. Elizabeth Dale 
Johnson, John Schilb and Shelley 
Jackson will form a panel on "Sem- 
iotics and Rhetoric in the English 
Curriculum." Dali Tan (Compara- 
tive Literature) and Stanley 
Dambrowski (English) will speak 
in a session on the novel as a field 
for semiotic study. Mary Jane 
Bamett (English) and Jianming 



Gong (Philosophy) will address 
themes in language and philos- 
ophy. Norma Procopiow (English), 
also co-chair for the conference, 
will give G semiotic analysis of a 
review of the 1991 film Thelma and 
Louise. 

The Department of Radio-Tele- 
vision-Film will deliver a panel on 
postmodernism — the "Crisis of 
Meaning" — in film and television, 
chaired by associate professor Gina 
Marchelti and featuring papers by 
department members Robert 
Kolker, Mike Mashon and Theirry 
Jufel. 

Jerome Bruner, distinguished 
professor and scholar of psychol- 
ogy, will deliver the keynote 
address, "Narrative as a Mode of 
Thought and a Mode of Discourse." 
Bruner has held professorships at 
Harvard, Oxford, the New School 
for Research and New York Uni- 
versity. Widely known for his work 
on perception and learning, Bruner 
has recently explored the nature of 
narrahve as shaped by cultural, 
personal and cognitive factors. 

Those interested may be register 
at the conference itself and atten- 
dance is free for all university fac- 
ulty, staff and students. Local 
arrangements for the convention 
have been made by Procopiow and 
Barry of the English department.

Three Distinguished International Executives Join 
Campus Community 



The first three Senior Research 
Scholars in UMCP's Distinguished 
International Executive Program 
are on campus. All three will be 
available to the entire campus com- 
munity as resource persons. Each 
also will have specific affiliations 
and projects they plan to pursue 
during the 1991-92 academic year. 

The three are: 

Townsend Hoopes, former 
Assistant to the Secretary of 
Defense and to the Chairman of the 
House Armed Services Committee, 
former Undersecretary of the Air 
Force, and author of two prize-win- 
ning books. Hoopes has an office in 
the Center for International Secur- 



ity Studies at Maryland (CISSM). 
He expects to study, write and lec- 
ture about the United Nations, 
political and economic prospects 
for the USSR, and Middle East 
arms control. 

Charles Henry Miller, retired 
former Government Affairs Vice- 
President of AT&T who earned a 
bachelor of science degree from 
College Park in 1953. Miller has a 
office in the Center for Internahon- 
al Business Education and Research 
(CIBER) where he will be working 
on a number of new programs in 
telecommunications and interna- 
tional business. 

Ben Kremenak, an executive of 



The Asia Foundation on sabbatical 
leave for the year. He served as the 
Foundation's representative in 
Korea from 1977-1981 and again 
from 1985-1991. He also headed the 
Foundation office in Bangladesh 
from 1972-1977. His office is locat- 
ed in the complex shared by 
CISSM and the Institutional Reform 
and the Informal Sector project 
(IRIS). He will be researching and 
writing on developmental issues in 
Asia. 

The Senior Research Scholars are 
formally affiliated with the Office 
of International Affairs, which 
helped arrange university affilia- 
tions and facilities for Ihem.

Scholar Looks at Global Ethnic Warfare and 
Consequences for International Security 



For nearly three decades Ted 
Robert Gurr has been studying the 
origins of civil violence and revolu- 
tion around the world. Since the 
mid-1980s he has focused on the 
rise of minority conflicts and the 
threats that ethnic warfare poses to 
global security. 

A professor of government and 
politics, Curr also is a distin- 
guished scholar at the university's 
Center for International Develop- 
ment and Conflict Management. 

Most of the v/orid's 170 inde- 
pendent states have significant eth- 
nic, religious and regional cleavag- 
es, he notes. In some countries hos- 
tilities across these lines of cleavage 
have led to protracted civil wars. In 
others they have generated national 
movements for independence. !n 
democracies, they have fueled 
autonomy movements and civil 
rights campaigns among ethnoclas- 
ses and immigrants. 

If not resolved by reforms and 
accommodation, he says, the 
human and political costs of these 
kinds of conflicts arc enormous — 
rights denied, improverishment, 
exodus of refugees, mass murder, 
democracy subverted, development 
deferred, escalation into regional 
wars. 

"Political conflicts among war- 
ring groups also have wide-ranging 
consequences outside the countries 
in which they occur, especially 
when they escalate into devastating 
civi! wars and mass reprisals, as 
they have throughout the Third 
World," Curr says. "They disrupt 
production and international trade, 
generate most of the world's refu- 
gee movements, provide arenas for 
armed competition among outside 
powers, and stimulate East- We St 
rivalries, even in an era of eased 
superpower tensions." 

Central to Gurr's research activi- 
ties are the data contained in the 
Minorities at Risk Project that he 
initiated in 1986. The project has 
identified some 230 minority 
groups worldwide whose relation- 
ship with the dominant society or 
government in power is or poten- 
tially will be the focus of conflict 
and repression. 

The project has profiled the eth- 
nic and religious traits of these 
minorities, their political and eco- 
nomic status, the differences 
between them and their dominant 
groups, their grievances in the 
1980s, and their involvement in 
communal conflict, protest and 
rebelHon since 1945. 

The project has been supported 
by the U.S. Institute of Peace, the 
Academic Research Support Pro- 
gram of the U.S. Department of 
Defense, and the universities of 
Colorado and Maryland. 

One of the world's most widely- 
cited authorities on political con- 
flict, Gurr joined the College Park 
faculty in 1989 after a long career 
at Princeton and Northwestern uni- 
versities and the University of Col- 
orado. Among his 15 books and 
monographs are Why Men Rebel, 
which won the Woodrow Wilson 
Prize as the best book of 1970 in

poUtical science, and three editions 
of Violence in America. In August, 
he was given a Lifetime Achieve- 
ment Award by the Conflict Pro- 
cesses Section of the American 
Political Science Association. 

Gurr began his research on the 
origins of civil violence in the mid- 
1960s when American policymakers 
turned to academics for advice 
about how to anticipate and 
respond to Communist-inspired 
insurgencies. 

Since then, he says, the key 
issues and dynamics of civil con- 
flict have changed. 

"Revolutionary wars are now 
more often waged by urban dem- 
onstrators than by rural rebels. The 
rhetoric of contemporary guerrilla 
fighters is more likely to emphasize 
the just rights of their people than 
Marxist-Leninist principles. Even 
the policymakers' phrase 'low- 
intensity conflict' is outdated, since 
more people die now in ethnic con- 
flicts than in conventional warfare." 

Gurr believes old categories and 
assumptions should be abandoned 
and that analyses and policies on 
conflict management be based on a 
recognition of new realities, partic- 
ularly in the global upsurge in eth- 
nic warfare. 



"If scholars, activists, and policy- 
makers understood better its com- 
mon origins and dynamics, they 
would be better able to anticipate 
new episodes and to devise strateg- 
ies that have some chance of 
resolving the underlying issues," he 
says. 

The fundamental lesson of dem- 
ocratic respwnses to minority move- 
ments, Gurr says, is that reform 
and accommodation usually work. 
Democratic governments that 
recognize the legitimate desire of 
minorities to define their own 
interests and pursue their own 
affairs, and give them some eco- 
nomic and political resources to do 
so, will ordinarily transform con- 
flict from hostile and violent forms 
toward nonviolent protest and 
political action. 

"No one should expect such con- 
flicts to be entirely 'resolved,' nor 
to think that all members of a 
minority will accept reformist 
moves," he cautions. 'There always 
will be divisive conflicts of interest 
and style across lines of ethnic 
cleavage. The task for reformers is 
to transform such conflicts from 
violent and unregulated forms into 
conventional politics."

''Dreams, Lies, and Exaggerations: Photomontage 
in America" Opens at the Art Gallery 



Viewers' first instinct may be to 
schedule an appointment with their 
eye doctors when "Dreams, Lies, 
and Exaggerations: Photomontage 
in America" opens October 21 at 
the Art Gallery. 

"It's a complicated show to see 
because images are not portrayed 
in their true state," says Cynthia 
Wayne, Art Gallery acting director 
and curator and coordinator of the 
exhibition. 

A definition of photomontage 
provides an explanation. According 
to Wayne, photomontage is the 
composite or joining of photo- 
graphs from disparate sources, 
brought together to create a single 
image. It is this manipulated image 
that causes photomontage's strong 
impact. 

Running October 21 through 
December 20, the exhibit will 
include 1 22 works in six major cat- 
egories in which photomontage 
was explored: the New Vision of 
Moholy-Nagy at the New 
Bauhaus as apphed to advertising 
and fine art photography, graphic 
design, Hollywood photography, 
public art, surrealism, and outsider 
photography. Works not usually 
considered in the context of fine 
art, such as record album covers, 
book jackets and magazine adver- 
tisements, will be included in the 
show. 

"By including the full range of 
material in which photomontage 
was most extensively employed, 
we arrive at a more complete 
understanding of the medium, as 
well as its profound influence on 
the American visual vocabulary," 
says Wayne. 

According to Wayne, photomon- 




One of 122 works on display at the Art Gallery's "Dreams, Lies, and Exaggerations: Photomontage In America" exhibition 



tage was first used as a modem art 
form by European and Russian 
avant-garde artists between t918 
and the 1930s. A critical factor in 
the introduction of this medium to 
America was the large number of 
European artists who emigrated to 
America in the 1930s, she explains. 

"'Dreams, Lies, and Exaggera- 
tions: Photomontage in America' is 
the first concentrated study of pho- 
tomontage as it developed in 
America," says Wayne. "Our inten- 
tion is to closely examine the pho- 
tomontage medium within an 
American art context," she says. 

Artists whose work will be high- 
lighted include Herbert Bayer, 
Harry Callahan, Will Connell, 
Gyorgy Kepes, Herbert Matter, 
Frederick Sommer, Va! Telberg, 
James Van Der Zee and Eugene 
von Bruenchenhein. 



This is the first scholarly exhibi- 
tion organized by the Art Gallery 
since 1989. The exhibition 
will travel to the John Michael 
Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, 
Wisconsin, where it will be on 
view from March 1 through May 
10, 1992. 

Major funding for the exhibition 
is the result of a grant from the 
National Endowment for the Arts 
and the University's College of 
Arts and Humanities. Additional 
support was provided by the 
Maryland State Arts Council and 
the Prince George's Arts Council. 

An opening reception will be 
held October 23 from 5:30 to 7:30 
p.m. The reception and exhibition 
are free and open to the public.

Mostly It's Not Any Mozart 



In this bicentennial year of 
Mozart's death, when audiences 
have been subject to untold con- 
certs involving every form of his 
work from the sublime to the 
obscure, the University of Mary- 
land Chorus has come up with a 
new idea: a performance involving 
the three great Bs of music. That's 
Bach, Beethoven and Brahms — 
remember them? 

On Sunday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. the 
University of Maryland Chorus, 
with orchestra and soloists, will be 
conducted by founding director 
Paul Traver in a concert performed 
in the university's Memorial 
Chapel. 

The big three B program 
includes J.S. Bach's motet, Lobet den 
Herrn, a motet by Brahms, £s ist das 
Heil, as well as his Schicksalslied, 
and Beethoven's Mass in C. 

Traver says he finds it intriguing 
to perform the two motets on the 
same program. Brahms carefully 
studied Bach, and while Bach's 
compositional technique is baroque 
and Brahms' is romantic, the mus- 
ical form in which they are work- 
ing is the same. 

Although the chorus sang the 
Brahms Schicksalslied in London in 



1976 and again in 1980 under the 
late Antal Dorati, it is performed 
infrequently, and the Nov. 3 con- 
cert will be its first performance at 
College Park. Traver is delighted to 
share it with the university com- 
munity. 'This is one of the most 
beautiful pieces of music I've ever 
been involved with," he says. 

Traver also thinks the campus 
audience will enjoy the Beethoven 
Mass in C, Op. 86. "It was written 
after his 'Eroica' Symphony and is 
typical middle Beethoven in its 
dramatic treatment of the text," he 
explains. "The }(yrie is very roman- 
tic sounding, while the Dona Nobis 
Pacem starts off as a demand and at 
the end becomes a plea. Won- 
derful." 

Campus audiences should also 
enjoy a chance to hear some of 
their own performing as soloists. 
Soprano Karon Swan, mezzo- 
soprano joy Ratliff, tenor Robert 
Craig and bass Phillip Collister are 
all graduate vocal majors at the 
university. 

Tickets are $15, $13, and $9. Call 
405-5568 for information about the 
Nov. 3 non-Mozart, three B concert. 





Bach 



Beethoven 



Coming up next for the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Chorus will be 
the ever-popular holiday concert 
performed Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. and 
Dec. 8 at 4 p.m. in Memorial 
Chapel. Featuring sixteenlh-and 
seventeenth-century music for 
chorus and brass as well as tra- 
ditional favorites and the annual 
audience sing-along, this concert 
will continue the respite and has 
very little Mozart in it (just one 
brief — but exquisite — selection). 
"Instead," promises Traver, "there 
will be lots of absolutely brilliant ' 
music for chorus, soloists and brass 
by Praetorius." Call 405-5571 for 
information about the December 
concerts,

University Establishes Center 
Substance Abuse Research 



for 



The university and Governor 
William Donald Schaefer's Drug 
and Alcohol Abuse Commission 
have established the Center for 
Substance Abuse Research 
(CESAR). 

The center was officially opened 
with a recent open house. 

Mandated by Governor 
Schaefer's Drug and Alcohol Abuse 
Commission, the center is designed 
to collect and disseminate timely 
information on substance abuse by 
sponsoring original surveys and 
research, providing advanced train- 
ing in substance abuse research 
methods, and conducting research, 
evaluation, and technical assistance 
to aid state and local governments 
in responding to the problem of 
substance abuse. 

Supported by grants from state 



and federal agencies, the center 
draws upon research and other 
resources throughout the university 
and includes parlicipalion from 
such university units as the Afro- 
American Studies Program, the 
College of Business and Manage- 
ment, Department of Family and 
Community Development, Depart- 
ment of Health Education, Depart- 
ment of Psychology, Department of 
Sociology, Institute of Criminal Jus- 
tice and Criminology, Interdiscipli- 
nary Health Research Center, and 
the University Honors Program, 
"1 know of no other state that 
has made such a strong commit- 
ment to establishing a university- 
based research center to inform 
public policy in substance abuse/' 
says Eric Wish, acting director, 
"CESAR will provide policy makers 



with the information and expertise 
needed to ensure that substance 
abuse policy and programs are 
timely and effective." 

"Drug abuse, including alcohol, 
is a major health and social prob- 
lem in the United States today. The 
abuse of toxic drugs causes enor- 
mous physical suffering, millions 
of days lost each year from work, 
lower national productivity, and 
untold social disorder and econom- 
ic loss," ,says university president 
William E. Kirwan. "We at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland intend to 
address this grievous problem by 
establishing the Center for Abuse 
Research in cooperation with Gov- 
ernor William Donald Schaefer's 
Drug and Alcohol Abuse Commis- 
sion."

"Computer vision techniques

"As we develop computers that

This, Rosenfeld says, will help 
us to send machines to places 
where humans can't or shouldn't 
go, such as, for example, into mine- 
fields or distant space.

Hearst Gift and Knight Fellow Program 
Bring Professionals to J-School 



The College of Journalism has 
received its largest-ever contribu- 
tion devoted to faculty and student 
academic needs with a $200,(XH) gift 
from the William Randolph Hearst

Facilities Master Plan Focuses on 1990-2004 



A summary report of the UMCP 
Facilities Master Plan — a blueprint 
for the orderly development and 
growth of the College Park campus 
through the year 2004 — has been 
issued. 

It describes how recommenda- 
tions made to enhance the quality 
of campus life by improving exist- 
ing facilities, land use, traffic, park- 
ing and utilities can be carried out. 

Brenda Testa, director of re- 
source planning in the Office of 
Resource Planning and Budgets, 
will discuss the facilities master 
plan at the October 30 Counseling 
Center Research and Development 
meeting. The meeting will be held 
from noon to 1 p.m. in the Testing 
Room, Shoemaker. 

The summary report outlines a 
development plan that is respon- 
sive to current needs and to the 
mandate of the 1988 reorganization 
act. Planning projection years have 
been established as Fall 1994, Fall 
1999, and Fall 2004. The time need- 
ed to realize fully the master plan 
will be determined as a result of 
annual reviews of the capital bud- 
get process. 

Planners report a total space 
deficit of more than one miUion 
square feet. All major space 
categories— -classrooms, class and 
non-class laboratories, offices and 
shidy areas show significant 
deficits. "This deficit situation has 
resulted from chronically 
insufficient capital funding," the 
report states. "Available space data

from peer institutions also under- 
score valid concerns with over-util- 
ized faciHties and the lack of suffi- 
cient space on campus." 

The advanced age and deteriora- 
ting conditions of facilities are also 
major concerns. "Insufficient fund- 
ing for maintenance and facilities 
renewal has resulted in enormous 
deferred maintenance needs and an 
aging, increasingly obsolete physi- 



cal plant," the summary report 
states. 

The facilities master plan physi- ■ 
cal recommendations are based on 
a series of guiding principles that, 
among other things, emphasize the 
importance of open spaces, the 
need to strengthen the pedestrian 
character of the campus and to con- 
centrate facilities that serve similar 
functions.
