Benson's Legaq^ Lives on at 
Major Puppetry 

"During my cliildhood, Jim Hen- 
son was ptippetfi," theatre major Jef- 
frey Binder say^ <'f tli<5 nian vvlm gave 
life to Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy 
and Bi^ Bird. 

"Jim I ieiison was part of my 
growth as a human being," Binder 
remembers. "I lived for Sesame Street. 
The Muppets were my favorite sJiow." 

Tiiough Henson died unexpected- 
ly three years ago, the great Miip- 
peteer's legticy continues to affect 
Binder and his contemporaries at 
Mtirvland, where ffensonand his wife 
)ane were undergraduates in the nOs. 

Jim Henson 's spirit was very 
much ahve March 16-20 during an 
intensive week-long puppetry work- 
shop in Tawes Theatre, where 15 stu- 

dents learned pup 
pctrv from p rotes - 
sicinal puppeteers 
of Jim Henson 

Al the work- 
shop's close, Jane Henson 
presented Binder with the 
first annual Jim Henson 
Award for Projects Related 
to Puppetry. 

Binder accepted the 
award on behalf of QmW — A

College Park Symposium Features Leading Systems Engineers 

A day-long symptjsium featuring 
presentations by three of the nation's 
leading systems engineers was spon- 
sored by College Park's Institute for 
Systems r<esearch (ISR), Saturday, 
March 27, at the UMUC Conference 

Entitled "Systems 20(10: The Con- 
vergence of Academia, Industry and 
Government," the symposium cele- 
brated the transition of ISR from a 
center to a permanent institute with 
full university backing. As a Nation- 
al Science Foundation (NSF) engi- 
neering center, ISR is 

continuing to expand its cross-disci- 
plinary resea rch a n d training t o 
enhance U.S. competitiveness in the 
global marketplace. 

Subjects of discussion during the 
event included the future of technolo- 
gy policy, the technical challenges of 
systems engineering and alternative 
power sources for automobiles. 

The featured speakers were: Erich 
Bloch, the Distinguished Fellow at 
the Council on Competitiveness, and 
a former director of the National Sci- 
ence Foundation; Roger W. Brockett, 
a leader in robotics and systems theo- 
ry and an ISR faci.dty member at Har- 
vard University; and Paul B. 
MacCready, creator of award-win- 
ning solar and human-powered air- 

craft, solar and batterv- powered cars, 
and chairman of AeroVironment Inc., 
a company that develops alternative 
energy sources. 

Other participants included Steven 
1. Marcus, director of the Institute for 
Systems Research; President William 
E. Kirwan; Elbert L. Marsh, deputy 
vice president for engineering at the 
National Science Foundation; and 
Jt>hn S. Baras, Martin Marietta Corp. 
Chair in Systems Engineering, Elec- 
trical Engineering and the Institute 
for Systems Research.

and the Life of the Virgin." 

The symposium is co-sponsored 
by the university's Department of Art 
History and Archaeology and the 
National Gallery of Art's Center for 
Advanced Study in the Visual Arts. 
This year's symposium, which gives 
graduate students the opportunity to 

present papers on a variety of art his- 
tory topics, brings together ten Mid- 
dle Atlantic universities. 

The program begins at 5 p.m. on 
Friday, April 2, in the Atrium of the 
Art /Sociology Building with a recep- 
tion and Maguire's keynote lecture, 
then moves to the Ross borough Inn 
for dinner, 

it continues April 3 in the Lecture 
Hall of the West Building at the 
National Gallery of Art, when gradu- 
ate students will piresent papers on 
topics ranging from "Giotto's Wed-

The workshop, the first of its kind 
in the Washingtun area, included lec- 
tures, presentations, and hands-on 
demonstrations of puppetry tech- 
nitjues. Registered students gaint-d 
three credits in theatre for their par- 
ticipation in the program, which ran 
everv dav from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. 

Throughout the week, students 
built their own puppets — ranging 
from marionettes to hand puppets, 
ii h a d o v\' p u ppe t s a n d rod pu p- 
pets — ^which they used in perfor- 
mances at the workshop's finale. 

On March 17, Jane Hen son and 
her former professor Ed Longly 

about their experiences at Maryland 
and the early Muppets. Tlie I lensons 
were both students in Longly's pup- 
petry class, 

lane I iensou collaborated with |im 
on the Muppets and continues to do 
puppetry work. 

The Washington area was first to 
be introduced to Kermit the Frog, 
and other prototypical Muppets, in 
iy55 when the llensons' Siiiii niid 
FnV/iifs debuted on WRC-TV. 

Since then — with the success of 
Sesame Street, The Moppet Show and 
Muppet mtu'ies — the Muppets have 
been televised in uHU'e than 100 coun- 
tries and 50 languages. 

In 1990, at the age of 53, [im Hen- 
son died unexpectedlv of pneumonia 
brought on by a virulent strep virus.

ISR Symposium 

cmdunu'd jnmi pn^e J 

laboration with the Division of 
Applied Sciences at Harvard Uni\'er- 
sity, is operating on a SI 3.8 million, 
five-year renewable grant from NSF. 

Since ISR's start as a center in 
1985, the organization has achieved 
more than $14 million in support 
from several dozen major national 
and local companies such as Westing- 
house Electric Corp., Exxon Chemical 
Co., Texas Instruments, and Digital 
Equipment Corp. ISR has filed eight 
patent disclosures while serving as an 
important link between corporations 
with similar research interests. The 
institute has manufactured several 
prototypes including a walking robot, 
a modular dextrous hand, software 
engineering tools and tactile sensors. 

ISR also offers a masters degree in 
systems engineering that is providing 
t he ed u ca t i o n required by co m pa n ies 
for fiiture U.S. leaders in a world 

"We are educating a new breed of 

engineer at both the undergraduate 
and graduate level," says ISR director 
Marcus. "We are providing technol- 
ogy transfer not only through collab- 
orative resea re h I V i t h i n d u s t r V , bu t by 
producing engineers who are broadly 
trained in a cross-disciplinary fash- 
ion. Industry conducts research in 
this way and we are educating this 
way. Our collaborative work with 
industry benefits the nation's com- 
petitiveness, our companies, students 
and the university." 

ISI^ also conducts educational out- 
reach programs to secondary schools 
in the state. One program, the Engi- 
neering/Mathematics Training Insti- 
tute, brings middle and high school 
teachers to campus each summer for 
hands-on training and lectures in sci- 
ence and engineering. The institute 
also sponsors the Young Scholars 
Program, which brings mathematical- 
ly and scientifically gifted high school 
seniors to campus for six weeks each 
summer to study engineering.

what is the Public Interest in Liberal Education 
at College Park?

Why do states invest in higher 
education? Fundamentally, the goal 
is to assure the future of our demo- 
cratic society. The United States is 
embarked on a noble but risky ven- 
ture, unparalleled in human history, 
in which citizenship is based, not on 
ethnicity or religion or place of birth, 
but on adherence to a set of abstract 
principles about democracy, human 
rights, and individual responsibility. 
To act upon such loft\' ideals, citizens 
require the educatitm to iniderstand 

I want to give special attention to 
four aspects of civic life that are 
increasingly important today — eco- 
nomic development, cultural diversi- 
ty, rapid change, and social 
criticism — and conclude with a dis- 
cussion of the implications of these 
aspects for the curriculum at Mary- 

Economic Development 

Colleges and universities con- 
tribute to the well-being of the state 
by educating highly skilled profes- 
sionals. Productive workers need 
both the breadth of knowledge and 
the intellectual skills we associate 
with a liberal education.... to see their 
work in a larger context, to deal with 
change, to solve problems creatively, 
and to contribute to the economy. 


The issue facing us is not just 
access, but access to what? Our 
responsibility is to educate for a 
world in which everyone will be a 
minority. Courses in African Ameri- 
can literature or Chinese language or 
the American immigrant experience 
are not exotic studies of "The Other"; 
they are basic building blocks of lib- 
eral learning. Students of color are 
not admitted merely to compensate 
for past injustice; they come to the 

university as full participants, often 
better prepared than manv mono-cul- 
tural white students. 

Ill this view of education, we do 
not demand conformity to a single 
cultural norm; we accept the more 
difficult challenge of learning from 
one another. The discourse itself is 
the source of commonalitv among 
m e m bers o f d i f f ere n t c u 1 1 1 u'ti I g n.1 u ps ; 
the discourse contributes to the larger 
social responsibilities we share as 

Rapid change 

A liberal education is not an inoc- 
ulation against future uncertainty, 
but vv i t h o u t a liberal ed u ca t i t>n wo 
are more likely to be left behind 
while such fields as technology, the 
med i a , d emogra ph v, and i n terna tion- 
a ! re I a t i on s a re tra n s f o r m ed — and 
transform us^at a dizzying pace. 

As responsible citizens and pro- 
ductive professionals, we are forced 
to understand the changing complex- 
ities of modern American life. 

Social criticism 

The duties of citizenship are those 
of critic in action. In our academic 
lives, critical inquiry is at the core of 
our work; in our professional lives, 
the ability to think critically is the key 
to utiderstanding others, to coping 
with change, to solving unanticipated 
problems. In our civic lives, we must 
also exercise critical skills to expect 
more than the status quo. 

Implications for campuses today 

It you accept my argument about 
citizenship in these broad terms, then 
what ought our undergraduate pro- 
grams look like? 

First, 1 am arguing for the practical 
relevance of the traditional subjects of 
the liberal arts. If we expect our stu- 
dents to be constructive critics of our 
society, then they should study politi- 
cal science and literature and psy- 
chology to understand how human 
beings behave as individuals and in 
groups. If the world in which they 
live is becoming increasingly techno- 
logical, then they should study sci- 
ence in a serious way. If the jobs they 
hold and the communities in which 
they live will be diverse, then they 
should study foreign languages, soci- 
ology, and international relations to 
develop the skills to cross cultural 

Second, the study of these liberal 
arts subjects should be more than 
content; they should develop essen- 
tial skills of analysis, communica- 
tions, and critical thinking. Students 
should hone these skills in their other 
courses as well, but the development 
of such broad attributes are the spe- 
cial responsibility of general education. 

Too often, however, the curricular 
offerings that meet breadth require- 
ments are little more than first cours- 
es in their disciplines, designed to 
socialize budding historians and 
chemists to their professions. 

If we want our graduates to apply 
their knowledge to important public 
questions facing our communities 
and our nation, then we ought to 
mociel that behavior in our class- 
rooms. Serious attention to the pub- 
lic interest in liberal education means 
greater emphasis on the implications 
of our knowledge base for the real 

Societal problems have the nasty 
habit of crossing traditional academic 
boundaries, so attempts to address 
thein often require insights from 
more than one discipline. 

Intellectual connections can be 
made in many ways — through explic- 
itly interdisciplinary offerings, clus- 
ters of courses aroimd a common 
idea, or sequenced courses in general 
education that consciously build 
upon one another. Too few of our 
students at College Park can find con- 
nections among the courses they take. 
Can we reasonably expect them to 
use their knowledge in broad and 
CO n n ec ted v\'a y s a f te r t h e V g ra d u a te i f 
they get no practice in integrated 
thinking while in college? 

The concern for connections 
extends beyond the content of our 
courses, however, to the relationships 
of the people on our campuses. 
Much of the research about effective 
learning and success in college points 
to the critical influence of the human 
interactions of college — the extent to 
which undergraduates know their 
professors, the importance of student 
study groups, the value of continuity 
between classroom and extra-curricu- 
lar activities. 

Finally, the implication of my 
argument for liberal education means 
the elevation of pedagogy beyond 
mere technique. We must go beyond 
a concern for what we teach also to 
consider hozr we teach. Our courses 
must develop skills as well as trans- 
mit facts. Serious attention to peda- 
gogy encourages connections — 
among disciplines, among students, 
between theory and practice, between 
faculty and undergraduates. 

The public interest in liberal edu- 
cation is the contribution it makes to 
the cultivation of an informed citizen- 
ry capable of active participation in 
the shaping and governing of a 
democratic society. 

The challenge to all of us is the' 
noble, risky, difficult struggle to 
remain human together. This appeal 
to our common humanity is funda- 
mentally the public interest in liberal
