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

Honors Program Is Magnet for Academically Gifted Students 



Last October, the campus' com- 
mitment to "honor thy students" was 
reahzed with the dedication of Anne 
Arundel Hall, the renovated show- 
case Honors Living/Learning Center 
at the heart of campus. Since then, the 
center has helped the Honors Pro- 
gram achieve several of its goals, says 
Jane Lawrence, director of the Hon- 
ors Program. 

Lawrence credits the facility with 
playing a r[)le in the recruitment and 
subsequent enrollment of 575 new 
freshman Honors students, the 
largest and most diverse class to date. 

Since the opening of Anne Arun- 
del Hall, more than 1,000 prospective 
students and families have toured the 
remodeled facility. This exposure and 
other initiatives, including First Year 
Focus, a comprehensive program 
organized last year to immerse fresh- 
man in the campus; a change in the 
Honors application process (qualified 
students are now invited to join the 
Honors Program); a doubling of Hon- 
ors course selections; and an expand- 
ed list of colleges offering Honors 
programs all contributed to the suc- 
cessful recruitment of this large class 
of academically-talented students. 
Lawrence notes that the 1993 Honors 
entrants have an average SAT score 
of 1,240, compared to an overall SAT 
average among all first-year students 
of 1,086. 

In addition, the new Honors class 
mirrors the diversity of the UMCP 
undergraduate population, according 
to Bonnie Rich, the Honors Program's 
advising coordinator. Sixteen percent 
of the first-vear Honors students are

African Americans, a rise from 10 
percent last year. And Asian students 
account for one-fifth of the Honors 
population {compared to one- fourth 
entering in 1992). "The Honors Pro- 
gram is committed to having a 
diverse student population, faculty 
and course offerings so we can reach 
out to students regardless of their 
interests and background," says 
Lawrence. 

Again this year, the male/ female 
ratio remains nearly evenly split. 
What's more. Honors students are 
spread among all of the colleges on 
campus. "This breaks the stereotype 
that the typical Honors student is a 
white male in engineering who sports 
a pocket protector," says Lawrence. 
Engineering still has the most, but 
they account for slightly less than a 
quarter of the 575 Honors students, 
with almost as many to be found in 
Life Sciences and Letters and Sciences. 

While Anne Arundel Hall houses 
only 100 students, a total of 940 Hon- 
ors students live on campus, many of 
them on specially designated floors 
in the highrises. Lawrence speaks 
passionately about building a strong 
on-campus community for these 
students, 

"One of our major goals is to have 
an impact on the intellectual climate 
of the campus and to encourage fac- 
ulty-student interaction," says 
Lawrence. 'The more students who 
live on campus, the stronger the 
sense of community." 

Any concerns that the special resi- 
dence hall would isolate or msulate 



Honors students have been 
dispelled. The lectures, 
informal get-togethers, art 
displays and other ameni- 
ties such as the computer 
lab, study rooms and library 
draw students from 
throughout campus. 
Lawrence stresses that all 
Anne Arundel activities are 
open to everyone. For 
example, a recent forum 
regarding highly competi- 
tive scholarship opportuni- 
ties (such as Fulbrights, 
Marsha lis and others) drew 
150 students. 

And Honors students 
participate in activities 
across campus as well. In 
HONR 100, a special one- 
credit course for first-year 
students, the 30 small sec- 
tions ufill coniplete a total of 
2,550 hours of community 
service this fall, Lawrence 
notes that Honors students 
are very involved in the Stu- 
dent Government Associa- 
tion, Day for Giving, the 
Summer of Service initiative 
and the Caring Coalition. 

Lawrence adds that stu- 
dent regent, Michael Seel- 
man, who represents the 
entire UM system stucieut 
body, is an Honors student 
living in Anne Arundel Hall. 
Honors students are emerging 
the campus leaders," she says. 



Prayer Vigil Celebrates 
Freed Hostage 




A prayer vigil of celebration for the freeing of 
Army Ctiief Warrant Officer Michael Durant, a 
former hostage in Somalia, was held in the 
main sanctuary of Memorial Chapel on Oct. 
14. The vigil, sponsored by the university's 
United Campus Ministry, was conducted by 
the Rev. Holly Ulmer. Attending the vigil 
were Durant's sister, Mary Ellen Durant, and 
her husl}and, Michael O'Hara, a university 
graduate assistant, pictured above.

Terrapin Tune-Up 

Class of '33 Takes a Shine to Maryland's Mascot 



His nose worn thin from being 
rubbed by students wishing for good 
grades, Testudo the weary diamond- 
back terrapin was recently given a 
facelift and a new brick base. 

A ceremony was licld on f-lome- 
coming morning (Oct, 16) to unveil 
the new and improved Testudo with 
members of the Class of '33 and Pres- 
ident William Kirwan in attendance. 

The original hollow bronze casting 
of the mascot was given as a gift to 
the university by the Class of 1933. It 
rested in front of Ritchie Coliseum 
until 1950, when it was moved to 
Byrd Stadium, and set up permanent 
residence in front of McKeldin 
Library in 1965. 



But after nearly 
five decades of rub- 
bing and rain show- 
ers, Testudo was 
showing his age. 
The Naval ROTC 
unit on campus 
noticed that Testu- 
do was in need of 
renovation, and 
began raising 
money to restore its 
original luster. 

But when the Class of '33 heard of the 
ROTC's plans, they took over the 
effort themselves,

History of Jewish American Women Discussed at Oct. 31 Conference 



On Sunday, Oct. 31, scholars and 
historians will join in a conference on 
the history of Jewish women in 
America. Called "Across Bound- 
aries," the conference is targeted 
toward three types of scholars: the 
few who already study the history of 
American Jewish women, those who 
study women's history and Jewish 
history, and those who have lightly 
touched upon issues involving Jewish 
American women. 

The idea for "Across Boundaries" 
began when Hasia Diner, professor of 
American Studies, taught a course at 
the Jewish Studies Center in Wash- 
ington, D.C., on the history of Ameri- 
can Jewish women, "A woman came 



up to me, introduced herself and 
asked if 1 would be interested in get- 
ting money k>r a conference on the 
subject," Diner said. 

Though not a scholar, the woman, 
Clara Schiffer, was interested in the 
subject and gave a contribution. Since 
then. Diner has found support from 
the Maryland Humanities Council 
and the Meyerhoff Center for Jewish 
Studies. 

Keynote speaker for the confer- 
ence is Paula Hyman, from Yale Uni- 
versity, an expert on French Jewish 
history credited by Diner with 
launching the field more than 20 
years ago. Presenters include UMCP 
faculty members Evelyn Torton Beck, 



Center on Aging Awarded More Than $300,000 
to Help States Reform Long-Term Care 



Once President Clinton's pro- 
posed health care reform plan is 
approved by Congress, it likely will 
give states increased responsibilitv 
for long-term care reform. But that 
flexibility may not immediately 
translate into access to all long-term 
care ser\'ices for all Americans. 

To ensure that coverage will 
become available to all, The Robert 
Wood Johnson Foundation has select- 
ed the UMCP Center on Aging to 
administer a S3.6 million national 
program that promotes the de\eIop- 
ment of long-term care coverage 



A Gifted Homecoming 




On October 16, a bottle of Heineken beer officially christened Van Munching Hail, the 
building that bears the name of Leo Van Munching Jr., Ciass of '50, shown at ieft with 
College of Business and Management Dean William Mayer. The building houses the 
College of Business and Management and the School of Public Affairs. Van Munching 
is president of Van Munching & Co., sole Importer of Heineken and Amstel Light 
beers. Last May, he pledged $5 million to the university, a gift to help defray con- 
struction cost of the new facility which Includes classrooms, computer laboratories 
and study areas, as well as offices for all full-time faculty. 



within the context of federal and state 
health reform. 

The Center on Aging, which 
helped form one of the onlv pilot pro- 
grams in the country to address long- 
term care financing, will receive 
S3Ul,n00 to administer the new initia- 
tive. As part of the project, the center 
will work with six states in reforming 
their long-term care financing sys- 
tems in order to provide people with 
greater access to the care they need. It 
these states are successful, they could 
serve as a model for rehirm through- 
out the country. 

"While the Clinton administration 
has taken on the formidable task of 
providing health care to ail Ameri- 
cans, it is doubtful that the country 
can afford to fully fund long-term 
care at the same time," says Mark 
Meiners, director of the new initia- 
tive. "That's why states have to initi- 
ate bold new programs to help 
families plan for the expense of long- 
term care and avoid the risk of 
imptn-erishment." 

The new program builds on the 
experience of the Partnership for 
Long-Term Care, which Meiners has 
directed since 1^87. That program 
has helped four states — California, 
Connecticut, Indiana and New 
York — -keep the elderly from losing a 
lifetime of savings should they ever 
need nursing services or home care. 

Since its inception, the project has 
received $10.4 million in grants from 
The Robert Wood Johnson Founda- 
tion. And at least 11 other states have 
passed legislation seeking to establish 
similar programs. 

In the four states where the part- 
nership is active, anyone who buys 
state- endorsed long-term care insur- 
ance from a private company can 
protect a certain amount of assets and 
still c]ualify for Medicaid should their 
coverage ever run out.

Gay Cullickson, Robyn Muncy, Mar- 
sha Ro/enblit, and Mary Sies. 

The Johns Hopkins University 
Press has expressed interest in pub- 
lishing the major papers presented at 
the conference, Diner said. 

The conference, which is free to 
the public (except for meals), takes 
place in the Art /Sociology Building 
on Oct. 31 and in the Center for 
AduJt Education on Nov, 1. For more 
information, contact Diner at

Taking a 'Trickle Down' Approach to Education 




Sharon Harley 

If the last phrase you'd expect to 
hear in conjimction with diversity 
and multiculluralism is "trickle 
down," then you may not know 
about Sharon Harlev's current effort 
to broaden the public school system's 
approach to education. Harley is an 
assistant professor of Afro-American 
Studies. 

Beginning last spring and continu- 
ing through fall, Harley's project has 
brought together 40 I'rince George's 
County school teachers from a vari- 
ety of ages, backgrounds and grade 
levels for a program of study in Afro- 
American historv and literature. Her 
purpose? To "train them to become 
trainers," says Harley, a free] u en t con- 
sultant to the school system, who cre- 
ated the program as a way not only 
of further grounding teachers in the 
challenges of multicultural study, but 
furthering the idea of multicultural 
study itself in the school system. 

"They take the courses, they cio 
readings in all the recent scholarship, 
they learn these new approaches, and 
then they go back and, hopefully, 
they share it with their colleagues," 
says Harley. 



In other words, in theory at least, a 
perfect example of trickle down at 
work. Harley chuckles. "Yeah, only 
in this case," she says, "maybe it 
works." 

Harley's program is one of many 
ongoing efforts by the College of 
Behavioral and Social Sciences 
(BSOS) to further multicultural edu- 
cation. There's alst> Professor of 
Anthropology Tony Whitehead's 
work on AIDS within the urban com- 
munity. Associate Professor of Psy- 
chology Janet Helms's work on racial 
identity issues, not to mention a host 
of workshops (including one forTAs 
on "classroom climate," and one for 
faculty to foster interdisciplinary 
work). 

In Elarley's case, as Behavioral and 
Social Science Dean Irwin Goldstein 
proudly points out, the program is 
meant to foster diversity not only 
within BSOS, hut within the campus 
system as well. 

How does he figure? 

"Well," he says, "we're offering 
these courses to people who will be 
educating people who will be coming 
here. It's very cyclical." 

The fact is, he says, "We're send- 
ing students out to live in a multicul- 
tural community." 

That's the reality— that's been the 
reality, Goldstein says. And the slow- 
to-adapt educational system must 
change with the changing times. It 
cannot afford to do otherwise. As 
Goldstein says, "How can you send 
students out to live in that community 
if they haven't had the experience?" 

[f the dedication and commitment 
to multicultural learning their teach- 
ers have shown in just three courses 
is anv indication, those students will 
soon find themselves fuily immersed 
in the challenges of multicultural 
experience. 

Of her class of 40, Harley says 
"they're doing brilliantly." 

hi fact, a good many of her stu- 
dents have been so excited by the 
experience that they've decided on 



Terrapin Tune-Up 

coiifinucii from /)(j,^r I 

"We've always cherished our gift 
and we didn't want to give up our 
interest in it," says George Weber, 
president of the Class of '33. 

In 1933, the football team was 
known as "the Old Liners," but the 
Class of '33 decided that the team 
needed a more fitting name and a 
mascot. Although each class member 
may recount a different tale of why 
the Terrapin was chosen, the dia- 
mond back terrapin became the offi- 
cial mascot that vear. 



With the blessing of Curley Byrd, 
then president of the university, the 
Class of '33 decided to build a statue 
to make the mascot official. The class 
even gave up having their prom at an 
expensive hotel to pay for the casting. 

"We sent the president of the Stu- 
dent Government Association to Ithe 
casting company in] Rhode Island 
with a live terrapin to make sure that 
the cast was accurate," Weber said. 
Preserved by a taxidermist, the origi- 
nal terrapin now attends all of their 
class reunions.

pursuing their Ph.D.s 
here next year. 

As for the program 
itself, Harley has plans 
to take on another 40 
teachers this spring. In 
her spare time, she's 
devising ways to have a 
program for teachers 
from every county 
school system in the 
state. And that's only for 
starters. Eventually, 
she'd like to go national. 

"Maybe in the next 
two years," she says. 
"Funded by the NEA, 
one for each state in the 
country. That's the 
dream."
