a cultural critique of the 1992 film. 
Carby is considered one of the fore- 
most literary and cultural critics in 
the country. Her talk— the 1993 Har- 
riet Tubman lecture — will be held at 
7:30 p.m., March 2 in 2203 Art/Soc. 
On March 3 at 11:00 a.m., a brown 
bag lunch /discussion will be held 
with Carby in the Maryland Room of

tion, call 405-211 8. 

• Black Student Union 25th 
anniversary celebration. After a 
quarter century of helping African 
American students thrive at College 
Park, the Black Student Union will 
mark its 25th anniversary with many 
Februarv events. The celebration will 
culminate with a banquet in March. 
For more information, contact Joseph 
Drayton at 314-8326 or call 314-7172. 

In addition to these events, two 
projects relevant to Black History 



Month include a new degree pro- 
gram and a research project currently 
underway. 

The Afro- American Studies Pro- 
gram and the School of Public Affairs 
are initiating a joint B.A./M.A. 
degree program that integrates study 
of African American history and cul- 
ture with contemporary policy analysis. 

The program will offer a bache- 
lor's degree in Afro-American Stud- 
ies and a master's degree in Public 
Management. 

A research project on the religous 
practices of enslaved Africans is 
being conducted by English Professor 
Gladys-Marie Fry and Anthropology 
Professor Mark Leone. The project is 
examining the coherence and diversi- 
ty of slave traditions by connecting 
the archaeological remains of prac- 
tices like divination and curing with 
narratives left by slaves. 



Undergraduate Applications Rise in 
Number and Quality 



A preliminary report from the 
Office of Undergraduate Admissions 
shows the applicant pool has 
increased ten percent from this time 
last year, with a substantial increase 
in the number of applicants seeking 
honors status, according to Linda 
Clement, director. 

Though she is cautious about com- 
paring honors application rates with 
last year — the process now requires 
that students onlv check a box, 
instead of filling out a separate appli- 
cation—Clement is pleased with the 
preliminary report. 

Her staff still has many spring cul- 
tivation activities to turn applicants 
into Maryland students, but Clement 
believes recent recruitment efforts 
such as the Visit Maryland Days, 
which brought nearly 3,000 people to 
campus last fall, and First Year Focus, 
the recruitment and enhancement 
campaign, are paying off. 

"The faculty really helped make 
the open house days successful," says 
Clement. "And with President Kir- 
wan writing about First Year Focus to 
each admitted student, we've defi- 
nitely spread the word that College 
Park is committed to attracting and 
serving Maryland's talented students."

First Year Focus Update 

As OUTLOOK first reported in the 
October 12, 1992 issue, FirstYear 
Focus includes several initiatives 
designed to highlight or enhance the 
qualitv of College Park's academic 
program for first year students. 

Of these initiatives, cluster 
scheduling is quickly becoming a 
reality. This optional program is 
designed to place first year students 
with similar interests in existing 
courses organized by such themes as 
"Environmental Preservation," "Hie 
Human Condition," or "The African 
American Experience." 

Available for up to ten percent of 
the first year class (about 300 stu- 
dents), clusters are limited to the 
smallest number of students in any 
cluster course. For example, if the 
ENGL 100 section of "The Human 
Condition" has twenty students, then 
only twenty students will be clus- 
tered in the PSYC 100 and PHIL 100 
sections that also make up this clus- 
ter, even if those sections have more 
than twenty seats.

designed to facilitate students' explo- 
rations of the theme and the universi-

Senate Meeting February 4 

The next Campus Senate meeting will be Thursday, February 4, from 3:30 
to 6:30 p.m. in 0126 Reckord Armory. Special orders of the day include a 
question and answer period with President William Kirwan, an address 
by Dr. Kathrvn J. Mohrman, dean of Undergraduate Studies, and a speech 
by Jennifer Kelley, SGA president. Issues to be discussed include a pro- 
posal to establish two separate majors in Japanese and Chinese, the policy 
on appointment and review of lecturers and instructors, and a status 
report on the Senate review of the Code of Academic Integrity.

ty's resources, will accompany every 
cluster, though there has been some 
discussion about dropping it from 
additional sections if demand for 
clusters is high. 

W h i 1 e c hi s t er sc he d li I i n g req u i res 
little more than identifying related 
courses, another initiative, freshman 
seminars, has involved more work. 

The goal of this initiative is to pro- 
vide every first year student with at 
least one class that has no more than 
30 students and is taught by a regular 
faculty member. 

Bruce Fretz, acting associate 
provost, and Kathrvn Mohrman, 
dean for Undergraduate Studies, 
report that almost all of the 133 new 
or restructured courses needed to 
meet this goal have been submitted 
by colleges and schools, but the pro- 
cess has been difficult. 

"Some colleges are having a hard 



time juggling their resources to cover 
all their teaching obligations, including 
freshman seminars," says Mohrman. 
"But most of the specific courses and 
sections have been identified." 

Jane Lawrence, director of Univer- 
sity Honors, wonders how the semi- 
nars will affect an expanding honors 
program that has increased its course 
offerings by 35 percent over the last 
five years. 

"We're growing and rely on the 
colleges to supply us with teachers, 
but this vear I've had to work much 
harder getting commitments for hon- 
ors classes from the deans," says 
Lawrence. "They are supportive, but 
teaching resources are tight." 

According to Fretz, Academic 
Affairs has asked University Honors 
to prepare a request for the funding 
and staff needed to maintain and 
increase, if necessary, the number of 
honors offerings for next fall. 

Some people have also been con-

Two New Surveys on Underage Drinking 
Reveal Disturbing Trends 



Results of two new surveys that 
underscore the problem of alcohol 
consumption by underage youth in 
the Washington, DC metropolitan 
area were presented by two universi- 
ty researchers at a December 7 press 
conference in Washington, D.C. 

Kenneth Beck, with the Depart- 
ment of Health Education and Mar- 
jorieScaffa, with the Alcohol/Drug 
Abuse Prevention Resource Center, 
presented the results of the two sur- 
veys. One of the surveys was con- 
ducted on the street with youth while 
the other was done by telephone. 
Both paint a grim picture of alcohol 
abuse among area youth. 



"According to the survey results," 
says Beck, "59% of area youth report 
that they have engaged in binge 
drinking — have had five or more 
drinks at one time — and of those who 
do binge drink, 65% report they have 
done so within the last month." 

The surveys were conducted as 
part of a 3-year pilot project being 
conducted by the Washington 
Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP). 
The project, which is being funded by 
the National Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration, will develop a pro- 
gram aimed at reducing alcohol con- 
sumption by minors. 



cerned with the communication of 
First Year Focus, which has been 
known as the Flagship Challenge and 
Freshman Focus. 

"It is, of course, tough to hit a 
moving target," says one College 
Park dean about the program. "What 
First Year Focus means seems to 
change from week to week." 

To provide more information 
about cluster scheduling, freshman 
seminars, and President's Scholar- 
ships — a new four-year, merit- based 
scholarship of $1,500 per year for aca- 
demically talented students — First 
Year Focus planners are holding an 
open forum tomorrow, February 2, 
from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in 0126 Armory. 
Kathrvn Mohrman and other cam- 
paign participants will be available to 
answer questions. For more informa- 
tion, call 405-9362.

CORRECTION 

The January 19 article "Training in 
New Performance Management 
Process Begins for Non-Faculty 
Supervisors" mistakenly implied 
that only non-facultv supervisors 
were included. The program is for 
all supervisors of non-faculty 
employees.

OUTLOOK to Cover the Regents' Plan in Future Issues 

This past December the University of Maryland System Board of 
Regents announced a far-reaching, controversial plan both to review 
academic offerings across the system and to reallocate resources to 
high-priority areas. Media coverage of that plan, "Achieving the 
Vision in Hard Times II," has been extensive but confusing. Begin- 
ning with the article below, OUTLOOK will look at the anticipated 
effect of the plan on College Park, and will provide updates as the 
plan moves toward its final form this spring. 



POINT OF VIEW 



Accelerated Program Review: 

The Chancellor's Vision As Seen by an Involved Outsider 



Robert W. Lissitz, Chair of the Campus Senate 



The Chancellor and Board of 
Regents have begun a new effort 
summarized in a report titled 
"Achieving the Vision in Hard Times 
II: An Action Plan for Reinvesting the 
System's Resources." Typically 
referred to as the Accelerated Pro- 
gram Review, the System has identi- 
fied over one hundred programs 
across the State for possible elimina- 
tion. I would like to provide some 
background on this matter, a chronol- 
ogy of our exposure to this effort, and 
some information about the Campus 
Senate responses. 

Our involvement began on 
December 10, when President Kirwan 
gave the Senate Executive Committee 
an advance notice of what was 
expected to happen the next day at 
the Board of Regents meeting. The 
public part of this meeting was the 
first time for those outside the Board 
of Regents and System office to com- 
ment on "Hard Times II." After 
reviewing it quickly, 1 presented Col- 
lege Park's concerns. 

Three days later, the Chancellor 
met with the UMCP Campus Senate 
Executive Committee. Though we 
appreciated the Chancellor's willing- 
ness to engage in open discussion 
about his agenda, no opinions about 
substantive issues appear to have 
been changed on either side. 

Understandably, the other cam- 
puses are very upset with the process 
AND the results. Our administration 
and the Senate Executive Committee 
are primarily upset with the process 
though we are also concerned about 
the recommendations. The Senate is 
somewhat assuaged by our adminis- 
tration's assurance that any recom- 
mendations for programmatic 
changes will go through the normal 
deliberative process that includes the 
Senate. 

One of the most serious of con- 
cerns is that the conditions necessary 
for the removal of faculty, the dis- 
missal of staff, and the protection of 
students are not well specified. Our 
document, "University of Maryland 
at College Park Procedures for 
Reduction, Consolidation, Transferor 
Discontinuance of Programs," con- 
tained such guarantees. 

Further, the protections this cam- 
pus codified in its retrenchment plan 
unanimously passed by the Senate on 
October 12 (and approved by Presi- 
dent Kirwan), as well as the policies 
used to cut programs, departments, 
and a college last year, are not there. 

With considerable justification, 
many people also think the Chancel- 
lor (and the Board of Regents) are 



attacking the rationale for the necessi- 
ty of tenure, which would seriously 
jeopardize our recruiting efforts. 
Tenure is not for the purpose of job 
security but to support academic 
freedom which is critical to higher 
education! 

On December 16, a hearing took 
place before the Board of Regents at 
UMBC and, despite all the negative 
testimony, they approved the report 
unanimously. Each campus has until 
March 1 to appeal recommendations. 

The communication between the 
Chancellor's office and the campus 
main administration appears to have 
been minimal. For example, we now 
believe that not only does the report 
ask us to look at a number of pro- 
grams including Comparative Litera- 
ture, Geology and those in the 
College of Agriculture and Life Sci- 
ences, but we must also find an addi- 
tional 2.3 million dollars in 
permanent savings. 

In addition, and to the benefit of 
College Park, the report assures us 
that we, as the flagship campus, are 
going to be a recipient of some of the 
savings the Board of Regents will 
reallocate through this effort. They 
estimate the total savings as approxi- 
mately $25 million {many think it will 
be less). 

We certainly appreciate being 
identified as a high priority of the 
System, and welcome increases in 
funds that may result, but this does 
not eliminate the important concerns 
this process raises. 

On January 19, 1 represented 
UMCP before Senator Barbara Hoff- 
man's committee on Budget and Tax- 
ation which was addressing the 
Accelerated Program Review. Fol- 
lowing Chancellor Langen berg's tes- 
timony, approximately 10 faculty 
came forward representing Tow son, 
UMBC and Salisbury State. 

The Senators proved a much more 
receptive audience to all the faculty 
testimony. Thev agreed there clearly 
was a failure to communicate and 
that the problem seemed to be at the 
Chancellor's level. 

Your Senate Executive Committee 
and administration have taken a 
number of steps to turn the process 
into a credible approach to making 
hard choices. Last year, our campus 
provided one example of how this 
can be done successfully. 

Concerning the elimination of pro- 
grams. Chancellor Langenberg 
praised College Park for accomplish- 
ing "what is often seen as impossible 
in higher education: significant 
changes in the UMCP academic pro 



gram inventory in the direction of 
increased quality with maximum . 
involvement of the campus commu- 
nity and minimum 
dissatisfaction." 

1 will close with the advice that I, 
on behalf of the Senate, gave to the 
Board of Regents, and the Senate 
Committee (and Dr. Langenberg, 
who was in attendance during these 
meetings). 

• It is appropriate to hold the feet 
of the President, and the Campus 
elected governance body to the fire. 
Some campuses apparently said 
"Everything here is just fine," and 
that is not a sufficient response to a 
request for careful review of campus 
operations. 

• College Park has proven it can 
respond appropriately, and I am con- 
vinced that we will continue to do so 
and that other campuses can do so as 
well. This must be done in a contexl 
that not only permits, but encour- 
ages, appropriate campus actions. 

• Program changes must involve 
extensive faculty, staff and student 
input. Total Quality Management 
principles state that strong support 
from the top is critical, but will only 
be effective if the deliverers of the 
services are brought fully into the 
improvement process. Shared gover- 
nance must be a major part of any 
such efforts to streamline a campus. 

• The Board of Regents should 
stop trying to micro-manage 
individual campus reversions and /or 
reallocations. No one denies that 
there is a place for state-wide coordi- 
nation and policy positions. Duplica- 
tion of programs is a serious issue the 
State can no longer afford to ignore, 
but again, campus review and feed- 
back m u s t be se c u red . 

• A good data base should be 
used for decisions about the quality 
and/or elimination of programs. 
This is especially true for decision 
making that is at a distance from the 
program and would apply to deci- 
sions on our campus as well. 

• The time line for hearings at a 
system level, and campus review 
must be sufficient for a careful, delib- 
erative process. We do not see the 
need for a panic response. For exam- 
ple, asking for reactions to recom- 
mendations by the next day is NOT 
sufficient to secure such advice. 

• Any system level determinations 
should involve the Chancellor's Sys- 
tem Faculty, Staff and Student Advi- 
sory councils. Their involvement, as 
well as that of the campuses, should 
provide for substantive advice that is 
welcome and seriously considered. 



We certainly 
appreciate 
being identified as 
a high priority of 
the System, but this 
does not eliminate 
the important 
concerns this 
process raises.
