OUTLOOK 



A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR FACULTY AND STAFF AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK 



FEBRUARY 8. 1993 
VOLUME 7, NUMBER 18 



Ira Berlin Named 

Acting Dean for Undergraduate Studies 



Calling his appointment "a symbol 
of our commitment to integrate teach- 
ing and research in the search for a 
new dean," Acting Provost Jacob 
Goldhaber recently named Ira Berlin 
to the post of Acting Dean for Under- 
graduate Studies. 

Effective April 1, Berlin will 
assume the position vacated by 
Kathrvn Mohrm.m, who will become 
president of Colorado College in Col- 
orado Springs. 

Widely respected as a scholar and 
ten c her, Berlin shares Gold ha ber's 
goal of making undergraduate educa- 
tion a meeting point for teaching and 
research (see his acceptance letter on 
page three). 

"The relationship between teach- 
ing and research should be reciprocal 
and reinforcing," says Berlin, who 
received one of the university's Dis- 
tinguished Scholar-Teacher awards in 
1990. "That relationship is the 
strongest card we hold." 

As a professor in the History 



Department, Berlin has written exten- 
sively on American history in the 
nineteenth century, particularly on 
Southern and Afro-American life. He 
founded and (until 1991) directed the 
Freedmen and Southern Society Pro- 
ject. The project's multi-volume Free- 
dom: A Documentary History of 
Emancipation has been awarded the 
Thomas Jefferson Prize of the Society 
for History in the Federal Govern- 
ment and the J. Franklin Jameson 
Prize of the American Historical 
Association. 

He also was named the state's 
1991 Outstanding Educator by the 
Maryland Association for ITigher 
Education. 

During the search for a new dean, 
which Goldhaber says will begin 
sometime this spring, Berlin brings a 
specific agenda to integrate teaching 
and research. 

"We never can be small, but we 
can put students on the cutting edge 
of knowledge," says Berlin. 



"They have access 
here to resources not 
available at most insti- 
tutions." 

In addition to more 
involvement in the 
research process, 
Berlin hopes to pro- 
vide more opportuni- 
ties for students and 
faculty to interact — 
"we might do that 
through interdisci- 
plinary courses, the 
cluster program, and 
polv-seminars;" find 
ways to teach better in 
larger classes — "The 
answer is not just a 
lower student/faculty 
ratio;" and recruit bet- 
ter students- — "Nothing can make us 
a better university faster." 

— John Frit

ical accessibility, ADA's broad 
reforms include protections for pro- 
gram accessibility. 

"The university must assure that 
all of its programs, publications, 
communications, athletic events and 
public events provide for full partici- 
pation by persons with disabilities," 
explains Rodnev Petersen, chair of 
the task force's subcommittee on pro- 
gram accessibility. 

Petersen cites examples of existing 
program accessibility such as sign 
and audio interpretation of Tawes 
Theatre performances, Braille menus 
in the dining halls, and accommoda- 
tions for testing (such as readers and 
extended time) which can be 
arranged through Disability Support 
Services. 

In addition to the campus-wide 
survey, Petersen, who is campus 
compliance officer for the Office of 
Human Relations Programs, says his 
subcommittee will likely use focus 
groups of current students and 
employees with disabilities to assess 
Maryland's compliance with ADA.

the task force also expects employ- 
ment to be one of the most important

New Association to Highlight Presence and 
Needs of Hispanic Community 



Seeking to highlight and increase 
Hispanic presence at College Park, a 
group met last semester to form the 
new Hispanic Faculty, Staff and 
Graduate Student Association. 

"Our role is to raise the conscious- 
ness of the administration about the 
value and importance of Hispanics as 
students and faculty, and to have 
Hispanics recognized as a minority," 
says Agriculture Professor William 
Rivera, the group's faculty represen- 
tative. 

In addition to sponsoring Hispanic 
cultural events, the organization will 
attempt to boost Hispanic enrollment 
and retention at Maryland and make 
financial aid more available to His- 
panic students. 

According to the Office of Institu- 
tional Studies, there are 1,159 Hispanic 
faculty, staff, and students. 

Institutional Studies also says 50.5 



percent of Hispanic undergraduates 
complete their degrees after five 
years, compared with 55,3 percent for 
the entire student body. Part of the 
reason for this discrepancy may be 
money. 

"In terms of real dollars, Hispanics 
have the most unmet need [of any 
ethnic group], taking into account 
both family contributions and finan- 
cial aid," says Jairo Fuertes, the asso- 
ciation's president. 

"We can encourage the university 
to promote scholarships, fellowships 
and work study programs for His- 
panic students," says Rivera. In fact, 
the organization has already begun 
working with the Office of Financial 
Aid. 

Fuertes notes that only 3,6 percent 
of Maryland undergraduates are His- 
panic, compared with nearly 9 per- 
cent in the general U.S. population. 




ADA Survey Will Be Mailed This Month

issues facing College Park. In fact. 
Title ! of the act is solely on employ- 
ment. 

"ADA precludes employers from 
ruling out individuals based on per- 
ceived disabilities," says Brenda 
Dixon, chair of the task force's sub- 
committee on employment. "So 
we've removed questions about 
workman's compensation or a per- 
son's health from our employment 
application." 

But Dixon says her subcommit- 
tee's primary tasks will include 
assessing each department's knowl- 
edge of and compliance with ADA 
employment issues, which will likely 
have implications for training and 
communicating information about 
the university's policies. 



"We need to make sure the hiring 
authority in each department under- 
stands ADA guidelines," says Dixon, 
who is assistant director of Personnel 
Services. "We also need to see how 
and where accommodations for 
employees with disabilities should be 
improved." 

Other members of the President's 
ADA Task Force include Jo-Ann 
Amadeo, Amel Anderson, Marilyn 
Berman, Cord ell Black, Stephen 
Block, Lawrence Bod in, Ray Gillian, 
George Goldenbaum, Gay Gullick- 
son, Thomas Heacock, Diana Jackson, 
James Liesener, Trudy Lindsey, Sher- 
ril Moon, Judith Peterson, Jack 
Purves, Frank Schlesinger, Shannon 
Whalen, and Margaret Zink. 

For more information, call 
314-7682.

While this may reflect the fact that 
only 2.6 percent of Maryland resi- 
dents are Hispanic, Fuertes points 
out that Hispanics make up 15 per- 
cent of the D.C. population. 

"This is a national university. We 
want a situation that's more reflective 
of the country as a whole," says 
Fuertes, who is a graduate assistant 
in the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student 
Education. 

The association's founders are 
modeling it after the Black Faculty 
and Staff Association, headed by 
Roberta Coates, who has been help- 
ing the Hispanic group get orga- 
nized. 

Hispanics are defined as people of 
Spanish -speaking ancestry, according 
to Rivera. Fuertes adds, "There's not 
one Hispanic culture. There are so 
many." 

The group plans to publish a bilin- 
gual newsletter, which it will call 
either Presents — meaning present, in 
the sense of the Hispanic community 
being both here and now — or Equivn- 
tente — a name evoking the group's 
call for equivalency measures for His- 
panics at Maryland. 

Luis Restrepo, a graduate assistant 
in the Department of Spanish and 
Portuguese, will edit the newsletter, 
to be published twice a semester. 

The group is currently drafting a 
constitution, as well as considering 
such events as a Mav symposium, a 
Hispanic Heritage Day celebration in 
October and educational activities on 
international development led by 
Rivera, a development expert.

Teaching and Research: "Two Sides of the Same Coin" 



(The following is Ira Berlin's letter to 
Acting Provost Jacob Gold ha ber 
accepting the position of Acting Dean 
for Undergraduate Studies) 

You honor me greatly with your 
invitation to succeed Kathryn 
Mohrman as dean for undergraduate 
studies, if only for a year and a half. I 
have thought it over and tried to put 
the job in the context of my own 
experience as a research scholar and a 
classroom teacher. 

As a teacher, one of the qualities of 
classroom life I have come to value is 
naivete — especially my own. In 1969, 
when 1 entered the professoriate, I 
presumed that teaching and research 
were two sides of the same coin — the 
advancement of knowledge, I was 
soon disabused of that idea. 
Teaching was rewarded or (more 
rarely) punished only at the 
extremes, depending upon whether 
one was very good or very bad. Most 
of my colleagues — like myself- — were 
neither, so it was perhaps fortunate 
that we were judged by our abilities 
as researchers. 

Indeed, while my university — and 
the ones at which I subsequently 
taught — established elaborate mea- 
sures to judge my productivity as a 
research scholar, none bothered to 
measure — or even develop the crite- 
ria to measure — my ability as a teach- 
er. 1 don't believe my experience in 
this regard is unusual. 



Without question, the focus of the 
university's mission on the produc- 
tion of knowledge has paid hand- 
some dividends. American 
universities — -the University of Mary- 
land among them — have become the 
great engines of knowledge in the 
United States and the world. Our 
success is recognized in dozens of 
ways, not least by the thousands of 
young scholars who come from all 
over the world to study in our class- 
rooms. 

Yet, the university's success has 
also had a price, and ironically, that 
price has been the neglect of its peda- 
gogical mission. Simply put, we are 
better at producing knowledge than 
reproducing it. Our failure in this 



Teaching without 
an infusion of 
new ideas makes for a 
barren pedagogy, just as 
research unshared 
makes for empty 
scholarship. 

— Ira Berlin 



regard has become so serious that it 
has put the university — including its 
mission as a producer of knowl- 
edge — at risk. 

However we understand the pre- 
sent crisis of the university, I agree . 
with you that the time has come to 
reconnect the essential missions of 
the production and reproduction of 
knowledge. I have no illusions about 
the magnitude of the task, for it will 
require redirecting the university's 
resources — material and intellectu- 
al — at a time of great fiscal con- 
straints. But, if done correctly, 
reasserting the claims of the class- 
room should not reduce the commit- 
ment to research. In many ways, it 
should enhance our capacity to 
expand the boundaries of knowledge, 
for teaching without an infusion of 
new ideas makes for a barren peda- 
gogy, just as research unshared 
makes for empty scholarship. 

The trick, of course, will be to find 
the humane commitments and insti- 
tutional mechanisms to rejoin the two 
basic tasks of academic life. Our uni- 
versity has made a good start during 
the last few years. With the aid of my 
colleagues and our students, I look 
forward to continuing that great 
good work. 1 am most pleased to 
accept the deanship of undergraduate 
studies in the name of a naivete that 
was misplaced but not lost. 



New Alumni Officer is Excited About Maryland's Diversity 



"I love the Washington area. Its 
cultural diversity is one of the main 
things that drew me here," says 
Gretchen King, the new assistant 
director of Alumni Programs. 

King has lived in the South and 
the Midwest, but she is especially 
excited about her new job and life in 
Maryland. "I've had more fun in the 
two and a half months that I've been 
here than in the three years I lived in 
St. Louis." 

Before coming to Maryland, King 
worked as coordinator of constituent 
relations at the University of Mis- 
souri-St. Louis,where she worked 
with the Parents Council and the 
African American chapter of that 
school's alumni association. 

King, 28, is certified in grant pro- 
posal writing and has been active in 
the Council for the Advancement and 
Support of Education (CASE), At a 
CASE conference in St. Louis last 
spring, King gave a presentation 
titled, "Programming for Culturally 
Diverse Constituencies." 

In the Alumni Programs office at 
Maryland, King's projects include 



coordinating finals week survival 
kits, the senior send-off, commence- 
ment, alumni reunions and home- 
coming. She will also be the liaison 
to the African American chapter of 
the alumni association and work with 
the architecture alumni chapter. 

"I'm very impressed with this 
campus and its commitment to cul- 
tural diversity," she says. King 
believes she brings diverse experi- 
ence to her new job and says she is 
committed to "doing a good job and 
doing it on time." 

Raised in Mobile, Ala., King 
received an M.A. in journalism from 
Northern Illinois University and a 
cum laude B.A. in print journalism 
from Southern University in Baton 
Rouge, La. 

As an undergraduate, King 
pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority 
and began what became a long and 
fruitful affiliation. Alpha Kappa 
Alpha is a Black sorority which has a 
chapter at the College Park. 

After graduating from Southern 
University, she took a position as 
associate editor of Ivy Leaf, Alpha 



Kappa Alpha's 
quarterly maga- 
zine. Her Mas- 
ter's thesis, 
entitled "Ivy Leaf 
Magazine: A 60 
Year History, 
1929-1989," 
examined the his- 
tory of the publi- 
cation's coverage 
of five areas: 
health, education, 
cultural activities, 
and domestic and 
international 
political events as 
they affected 
Blacks in America. 

Though she 
has not yet con- 
tacted an Alpha 
Kappa Alpha 

graduate chapter in the area. King 
says, "I would welcome current 
members if they wanted to stop by 
my office."
