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



OCTOBER 11, 1993 

VOLUME 8, NUMBER 6 



Coca-Cola and UMCP to Help "At Risk" Students 




Scholarship recipients gather around Jerry Lewis, director of the 
Academic Achievement Program, during the reception to thank The 
Coca-Cola Company for its support. Shown from left to right are Tenia 
Pritchard, Jerry Lewis, Sakinah Dupree, Kari Draper and Yusef Jones. 



A partnership between The Coca- 
Cola Company, the University of 
Maryland at College Park and the 
District of Columbia public schools 
will help "at risk" high school stu- 
dents succeed in college. 

The Coca-Cola Access to Higher 
Education Program is funded bvThe 
Coca-Cola Foundation through a 
two-vear, $ '1 00,000 grant and devel- 
oped by the university's College of 
Education. It will identify and pro- 
vide assistance to selected District of 
Columbia public school students who 
dem nostra ft' the potential for post 
secondary education but who, with- 
out intervention, would probably not 
continue their education beyond high 
school. 

"This program addresses a con- 
cern shared by The Coca-Cola Com- 
pany, the University of Maryland, 
District of Columbia schools, and, in 
fact, all educators and employers in 
the United States," noted Franklin 
Smith, superintendent of schools. 
District of Columbia. "That mutual 
concern is the preparation of an 
increased number of students for 



high school 
graduation and 
college admis- 
sion," 

"Every young 
person deserves 
access to the 
opportunities 
that higher edu- 
cation makes 
possible," said 
Robert Shannon, 
vice president 
and general 
manager of 
Coca-Cola Enter- 
prises Northeast. 
"We are proud to 
help open the 
door to those opportunities in part- 
nership with the University of Mary- 
land and District of Columbia public 
schools." The Coca-Cola Foundation 
has made a $50 million, decade- long 
commitment to advance excellence in 
education in the 1990s. 

Fourteen District of Columbia 
high school teachers will be invited to 
participate in the program each year. 
Each teacher will identify one third- 
year high school student who he or 
she believes has academic potential 
but is unlikely to enter college with- 
out direct assistance. 

"All it takes is for someone to be 



there to eliminate those small factors 
that may keep these children from 
succeeding," said Sandra Maddox, 
one of the teachers who will partici- 
pate in the program. "That's what 
we're here for," 

After observing their selected stu- 
dents, teachers will, under the leader- 
ship of a College of Education faculty 
member, plan and implement an 
intervention program designed to 
increase the likelihood of the student 
attending a college. They also will 
assist the student in applying to the 
college or university of his or her 
choice. 

Students who successfully com- 
plete The Coca-Cola Access to Higher 
Education Program and are admitted 
to College Park will be enrolled in the 
Academic Achievement Program, 
which provides academic skill 
enhancement, instruction in English, 
mathematics, and general college 
skills within a structured, compre- 
hensive academic support system. 
Students also will be eligible to com- 
pete for approximately 1 scholarships. 

Scholarships were awarded this 
year to four District of Columbia 
public school graduates currently 
enrolled in the university's Academic 
Achievement Program.

Lecture & Cultural Fair Mark National Hispanic Heritage Month 



The campus Hispanic community 
has joined efforts to coordinate events 
celebrating National Hispanic Her- 
itage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15). 

Pedro Aviles, executive director of 
the Washington-based Latino Civil 
Rights Task Force, was invited as 
campus guest lecturer Sept. 30, to for- 
mally kick off the university's cele- 
bration of National Hispanic Heritage 
Month said Jairo Fuertes, president of 
the recently formed Hispanic Faculty, 
Staff, Graduate Student Association 
(HFSGSA). 

Aviles, who emerged as a leader 
from the Mount Pleasant riots that 
resulted from the shooting of a His- 
panic man by district police in 1991, 
said the "new wave" of Hispanic 
immigrants in the Washington area 
are more reluctant to change their 
culture. 

"As an immigrant, 1 am resistant 
to the concept of assimilation. A lot of 
us are saying ... maybe we should all 
change. 1 change; you change," said 
Aviles, who has lived in this country 
for 19 years. "! also want you to 
know that 1 have certain things to 
contribute." 

The lecture, which was a joint 
effort of several campus offices 
including the Department of Spanish 
and Portuguese and the Hispanic 
Faculty, Staff and Graduate Student 
Association, was also the first of a lec- 



ture series titled "Contemporary 
Voices of Our Latino Community," 
which will highlight issues facing the 
Hispanic community. 

"We must realize the unique eth- 
nic diversity that exists among Lati- 
nos," said Aviles. "We have 
Afro-Latinos and Asian Latinos." 

"I was impressed with his knowl- 
edge," said Mary Cothran, director of 
the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student 
Education, about Aviels , who also 
talked about the existing conflicts 
among Washington's minority 
groups. "If we continue to work with 
j the Latino Civil Rights Task Force!, 
the university itself can learn from 
him," she said. 

Hispanics on campus, who make 
up 3.6 percent of the student body, 
represent 19 nationalities said 
Fuertes, who has done graduate 
research on the acculturation of cam- 
ps is I lispani< students. 

The HFSGSA is also collaborating 
with the Hispanic Student Union and 
the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student 
Education to coordinate the 5th 
Annual Hispanic Heritage Celebra- 
tion on Friday, Oct. 1 5. 

The evening program, which this 
year will feature a local salsa band 
and a Bolivian folkloric dance group, 
is open to the entire campus commu- 
nity, said Fuertes. "Sharing our cul- 
ture promotes cultural awareness and 



Hispanic Heritage 
Month 

The origin of Hispanic Heritage 
Month began in 1 9fe8 when Presi- 
dent Lyndon B. Johnson pro- 
claimed the week of Sept. 15 as 
National Hispanic Week. 

In 1988, former President 
Ronald Reagan signed a presiden- 
tial proclamation making Sept. 15 
to Oct. 15 National Hispanic Her- 
itage .Month, The time period was 
chosen because many Latin Amer- 
ican countries celebrate their inde- 
pendence day during this period. 

Hispanic faculty, staff and stu- 
dents at the university are collabo- 
rating on two primary events 
which included a lecture and the 
annual Hispanic Heritage Celebra- 
tion on Oct. 15 to celebrate the 
mouth. 



diversity and that is one of our basic 
tenets of our organization," said HSU 
president Fernando Carpio. 

"We're not limiting ourselves to 
this month only ... Cultural awareness 
should be something that continues 
throughout the year," said Luis 
Restrepo, editor of HESGA's newslet- 
ter Presets te.

Conference Will Examine Creole Literature 



On the Caribbean islands of Haiti, 
Guadeloupe and Martinique, the 
assertion of a culturally black identi- 
ty has formed a new kind of French 
iterature that takes its roots from 
Creole languages and culture. 
The intermingling of the 
French and Creole strands will 
be examined during "Expand- 
ing the Definition of Creo- 
lite", an international 
colloquium to be held on 
Oct. 22 and 23. 

Sponsored by the 



French department, the colloquium 
will host scholars from the U.S., 
Canada, France and the Caribbean, 
including prominent Caribbean writ- 
ers who will read from and discuss 
their works. Talks will be given in 
English and in French. 

Maryse Conde and Madeleine 
Cottenet Hage, both professors in the 
department of French and Italian, re- 
organized the event, which is co- 
sponsored by the Africa and the 
Americas Committee, Latin American 
Studies, Comparative Literature, the 



Graduate School, the College of Arts 
and Humanities and the Maryland 
Humanities Council. 

I he program i- free and open to 
the public. For more information,
