OUTLOOK 



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



APRIL 12, 1993 
VOLUME 7, NUMBER 26 



Walt Williams Establishes Scholarship 



Walt Williams, former Terrapin 
basketball star and current NBA 
rookie for the Sacramento Kings, has 
given the university a $125,00(1 gift to 
establish a minority scholarship in 
the name of his father, Walter 




Williams Sr. 

The scholarship is to give "a wor- 
thy and qualified young minority, 
particularly an African- American stu- 
dent, a chance for higher education 
when without it they may not have 
had one," said Williams at an April 1 
press conference prior to a Bullet's 
home game against the Kings. 

Williams will leave the selection of 
the recipients up to the university, but 
said it is not a basketball scholarship. 

The university is "delighted... not 
only with this wonderful gift but that 
a person of such high profile as Walt 
Williams, who is so well known and 
so well loved, would make this kind 
of a gesture; we think it speaks 



eloquently of what can be done 
with success," said Kathryn Costello, 
vice-president for Institutional 
Advancement, 

Williams said the idea to endow 
a scholarship in his father's name 
"started when my father passed. 
He never had the opportunity to 
finish his education...! felt it was up 
to me to have a scholarship in his 
name to help people like himself 
who didn't have a chance to go to 
college." 

Williams has the distinction of 
being the youngest person in uni- 
versity history to endow a scholar- 
ship.

national affairs since World War II," 
said Wilson, prior to a meeting about 
the U.S. government's recent propos- 
al to provide $1.6 billion in aid to 
Russia.

Alternatives to Leland Hospital 

Leland Hospital officially closed on March 5, but there are three hospitals, all 
nearly equidistant from the campus, that meet any need for care. These are 
Washington Adventist, located on Carroll Avenue in Takoma Park; Prince 
Georges Hospital Center, located on Hospital Drive in Cheverty; and Doctor's 
Hospital, located on Good Luck Road in Lanham. As always, dial 911 or 53333 
for emergency assistance. If you have any questions or concerns regarding 
Leland's closure, please contact Margaret Brid well, director of the Health Cen- 
ter, at 314-18090. 



TQM and Continuous Improvement Update 




George Dieter 

To find out what is happening ivith Tata! 
Quality Management and Continuous 
Improvement at the university, John 
Fritz, editor of OUTLOOK, interviewed 
George Dieter, dean of the College of 
Engineering and director of the universi- 
ty's continuous improvement efforts, 
file fallowing are excerpts: 

Q: We've heard a lot about Total 
Quality Management (TQM) and 
Continuous Improvement (CI), but 
what's the difference? 



Continuous 
Improvement 
Resource People 

Geno Schnell, associate direc- 
tor of the university's continuous 
improvement programs, reports 
that several staff and faculty 
received CI training over six 
weeks this past fall semester and 
have agreed to serve as campus 
resource persons. They are: 

Mercy Coogan (Business & 
Management), 5-2312; Sue Elliott 
(Physical Plant), 5-3209; James 
Key (Engineering Research Cen- 
ter), 5-3903; Jon Rood (Commu- 
nication and Business Services), 
5-4405; Laura Siavin (Under- 
graduate Studies), 5-9361; Janet 
Schmidt (Student Affairs), 
4-8435; Bill Walston {Mechanical 
Engineering), 5-2409; Rhythee 
Wilkes (Personnel), 5-5651; and 
Andy Wolvin (Speech Commu- 
nication), 5-6521. 



A: Continuous Improvement is 
College Park's adaptation of 
what manv people call "TQM." 
Central to both terms is a holis- 
tic rather than analytic 
approach to viewing organiza- 
tions and their operations and 
community. 

Organizations that take this 
approach operate on common 
principles such as a focus on 
the customer, respect for 
employees at all levels, an 
emphasis on preventing prob- 
lems, cross-functional problem 
solving, data supported deci- 
sion-making and constancy of 
leadership's support for the 
philosophy- 

A planning committee 
formed by President Kirwan 
recommended last year that 
we adopt the term "Continu- 
ous Improvement" as the 
name for our change efforts 
because it focuses on achieving 
increasingly effective solutions 
to problems. 



Q: What specific examples of Con- 
tinuous Improvement are there on 
campus? 

A: It's difficult to provide a quick 
summary, but let me provide you 
with a few highlights. 

Many units on campus have under- 
taken serious efforts to understand 
customer requirements and satisfac- 
tion. You've probably noticed the 
feedback forms available throughout 
the Stamp Student Union and may 



have received a telephone or written 
survey from the Bursar, Graduate 
School, or Resident Life. 

Some units, such as Communica- 
tion and Business Services, have used 
the AT&T Teaching Theater to gather 
anonvmous interactive feedback from 
people they serve. 

Residential Facilities videotaped 
four panels of students talking about 
their experiences with maintenance 
and housekeeping services in the res- 
idence halls. 

"Hearing the Student Voice" is a 
specific CI team with cross- functional 
and student representation that has 
experimented with different forms of 
gathering feedback; one of their pro- 
jects resulted in the recent letter to 
President Kirwan that was printed in 
The Diamondback. 

Several units are introducing con- 
tinuous improvement through the 
formation of problem-solving teams. 
For example, college level groups are 
now forming to examine undergrad- 
uate advising. The Health Center 
formed a CI team to identify student 
concerns, diagram root causes of 
problems, and recommend service 
changes. As a result, Health Center 
staff were able to measure decreases 
in student waiting time, create new 
medical excuse and parking policies, 
restructure the patient intake process, 
and install new directional signage 
throughout the building. Their work 
has been very successful and two 
more Health Center CI teams have 
been formed. 

Overall, what is most impressive 
about these efforts is that most of 
them have been created and lead by 
the units themselves. Our campus 
staff has shown great resourcefulness 
and creativity. 

Q: How is the university's Continu- 
ous Improvement program related to 
the IBM-TQ grant that was 
announced last semester? Are the 
(wo efforts integrated in any way? 

A: While the Continuous Improve- 
ment program has a broad approach 
in both academic and administrative 
areas, the major thrust of the IBM-TQ 
grant is intended to enhance under- 
graduate education, particularly in 
the College of Business & Manage- 
ment and the College of Engineering. 
Of course both efforts complement 
one another, and part of the IBM-TQ 
grant is intended to enhance the over- 
all campus program. There are sepa- 
rate coordination and implementation 
teams for the IBM-TQ project that 
incorporate members from across the 
campus community. I am a member 
of that team, and several faculty and 
staff involved with the IBM-TQ pro- 
ject are independently involved with 
continuous improvement projects 
elsewhere on campus. 



Q: How can faculty and staff learn 
more about Continuous Improve- 
ment? 

A: Al! deans and vice presidents have 
received a binder of general readings 
which may be of interest to faculty 
and staff. In addition, the binder is 
available in all campus libraries and 
there are a set of additional readings 
in McKeldin Graduate Reserves. The 
library has also prepared two refer- 
ence bibliographies about TQM /Con- 
tinuous Improvement. There are 
several videos about TQM in busi- 
ness and industry that are available 
at Non Print Media Services in Horn- 
bake Library. 

Campus staff, faculty and admin- 
istrators who have received continu- 
ous improvement training may also 
be able to provide assistance. Cam- 
pus deans participated in two days of 
training this past February. Individu- 
als with specific interests or questions 
may want to contact Geno Schnell at 
405-3866. Injanuary, hebegan 
working as our associate director for 
Continuous Improvement.

Sexual Assault Hot Line Volunteers Needed 

The Sexual Assault Assistance Program, a new Health Center program orga- 
nized to help survivors of sexual offense, is looking for volunteers for its hot 
line, which will begin in September, 1993. Expertise in the area of sexual 
assault is not required. Volunteers are expected to provide 24-hour on call cov- 
erage several times a month, with a beeper to be provided by the program. 
Volunteer training is mandatory and will be held Aug, 30 through Sep. 3. For 
more information, contact Mary Hoban at 314-8128, or stop by room 2101 of 
the Health Center. Applications are due by April 26. 




INFO Puts Campus Email Users In Touch with the World 



Want to find out what President 
Clinton said in a press conference 
yesterday? 

Users of the INFO {Information 
On-line) System can get transcripts of 
the president's speeches and news 
conferences or even send messages to 
the president directly. 

An electronic information 
database available to the university 
campus network, INFO provides 
information about many events, doc- 
uments and resources, including all 
university committee reports and 
Campus Senate decisions. 

INFO is a descendent of the 
"AIM" or "Access to Information 
about Maryland" computer system, 
which consisted of five stationary ter- 
minals located around campus. But 
troubles updating information caused 
administrators to seek a better system. 

INFO can be reached virtually 
anywhere through a workstation 
with network or modem capabilities, 
so it is ultimately more accessible. 
And if you don't possess a computer 
or modem, INFO is available at any 
Workstations at Maryland (WAM) lab. 

Economics faculty already use 



INFO to help teach their classes. A 
special database called "EconData" 
has been set up to store economical 
information and statistics from 
around the world. 

By choosing the heading "Com- 
puters" from the main menu, users 
can get information about computer 
lab schedules and price sheets for 
equipment sold by the Computer 
Emporium. 

There is also a database dedicated 
to the study of the Chesapeake Bay, 
and a directory dedicated to genetics 
information. 

Through INFO you can read USA 
Today, the entire text of "Alice in 
Wonderland" or the U.S. Constitu- 
tion. 

"We're hoping that more and 
more faculty and staff will use INFO 
for their information needs," says 
Lou Murch, assistant director for 
Information Services. 

Using INFO at home can be done 
by using a modem and dialing 
301 403-4333 and then using "telnet 
info" to log in. 

Because it is free and an account is 
not needed, INFO is in use outside of 



Faculty and Staff Appreciation Night is April 22 



University Theatre, along with a

"Not By Bed Alone" for all staff and 
faculty on that evening. 

All staff and faculty will receive a 
fiver through campus mail, which 
they may redeem for one complimen- 
tary ticket. 

Redeeming the flyer automatically 
enters employees to win special 
prizes. The prize list includes: two 
round-trip airfares to any USAir 
domestic destination, two tickets to 



each 1 993-94 University Theatre pro- 
duction, a $50 gift certificate at

Volcanoes 



con United from page 1 



the past two years, thanks to Mt. 
Pinatubo, may have helped prevent 
national chaos there," 

According to Robock, the changes 
in weather caused by the volcanic 
eruptions result from complex inter- 
action between volcanic gas emis- 
sions and the atmosphere as well as 
blocked and absorbed sunlight. In 
the case of winter warming, the heat- 
ing of the tropical stratosphere by the 
volcanic aerosols creates an enhanced 
zonal wind which brings warmer 
marine air over portions of North 
America and Eurasia, warming the 
regions. The cooling in the Middle 
East is caused by volcanic aerosols 
blocking incoming sunlight. 

Robock notes, however, that over 
a two-to three-year time scale, vol- 
canic eruptions do lower ground 
temperature across the globe for sev- 
eral years.
