A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR FACULTY AND STAFF AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK
NOVEMBER 1, 1993
VOLUME 8, NUMBER 9
Honors Roll in for College Park Campus
Programs in Computer Science and Physics Ranked Two of the Best in Nation
The University of
Maryland at College
Park's College of
matical and Physi-
cal Sciences was
selected as having
two of the best
grams in com-
and physics in
the nation as
part of the
annual survey of Ameri-
ca's best colleges by U.S. Neivs &
Based on an intensive survey of
hundreds of academic experts, U.S.
News & World Report selected
UMCP's Department of Computer
Science as the 12th best in the nation,
sharing that ranking with UCLA,
Brown University and Purdue Uni-
versity at West Lafayette. The Uni-
versity of Maryland at College Park
beat out the likes of Harvard, Yale,
and Columbia University in the rank-
Similarly honored was the Depart-
ment of Physics which was selected
as the 13th best program in the nation
along with the University of Michi-
gan at Ann Arbor. UMCP's physics
department was selected over UCLA,
the University of Wisconsin at Madi-
son, and the University of Pennsylva-
nia among others.
In a related honor, UMCP's com-
puter science program became one of
only two in the U.S. to receive three
National Science Foundation Young
Investigator Awards for 1993. Only
Carnegie Mellon's program received
as many of the highly sought-after
The three university faculty mem-
bers selected to win the awards are
Bonnie Dorr, Richard Gerber and V.S.
Subrahmanian, all assistant profes-
sors in the computer science depart-
ment. Designed to support the
research programs of promising
young scientists, the Young Investi-
gator Awards are given for a five-
year period and include a $25,000
stipend each year. In addition, recipi-
ents are eligible to receive up to
$37,000 in matching funds during
each of the five years.
Dorr will conduct computerized
language studies that allow
researchers to make incremental
changes to test iong-standing
hypotheses about computerized
translation. Gerber will work on pro-
jects dealing with the analysis,
methodology, performance and pre-
dictability of real-time programs.
Subrahmanian will continue his
research on developing the mathe-
matical foundations and software
implementations of theories that inte-
grate multiple modes of reasoning
and knowledge representation

Nov. I to 5 Marks AIDS Awareness Week IV
If the Al DS Steering Committee
has its way, this year's AIDS Aware-
ness Week activities, from Nov. 1 to
5, will be the most far-reaching to
date. This marks the fourth year for
the designated week organized to
focus attention on AIDS and HIV.

Social Issues Theater, an interac-
tive presentation highlighting impor-
tant issues related to HIV and AIDS
such as confronting the risk behavior
of someone close to you or communi-
cating with sexual partners, will be
presented Nov. 1, noon to 1 p.m., in
the Atrium. The piece, written and
performed by students, ends in con-
flict regarding condom use and other
such issues related to sexual behav-
ior, according to Hoban. Members of
the audience will then be asked to
express their viewpoints.
At the Personal Stories Panel, 2 to
3 p.m., Monday, Nov. 1, Room 1143,
presenters will speak about their
experiences as individuals who are
living with HIV infection or AIDS.
The five panelists include three
women, one of whom is a 31-year-old
graduate of George Washington Uni-
versity who acquired HIV three years

Do Something for a Change
At all AIDS Awareness Week events, campus community mem-
bers will be encouraged to donate spare change to the AIDS Response
Fund, begun in 1990. The AIDS Response Fund serves faculty, staff
and students whose lives are affected by AIDS or HIV disease. Finan-
cial support is distributed confidentially, based on availability and
need, to assist people living with AIDS or HIV or individuals whose
friends or family members are affected.
The five-member allocation committee reviews requests. Grants
have been given to assist with medical expenses, provide for a health
care worker, and even pay for long-distance phone bills and gro-
ceries. This is the first year the "Do Something for a Change" drive
supplements contributions made to the fund through the University
of Maryland Foundation, Inc.

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Banned From Campus
Following charges that 24 chapter
members brutally hazed pledges.
Omega Psi Phi fraternity has been
banned from the University of Mary-
land at College Park until 1*998. The
suspension comes under an agree-
ment the university reached with the
fraternity's national chapter which
bars the College Park chapter, Chi
Delta, from using the Omega Psi Phi
name and forbids the group to gather
"This outcome reflects the serious
nature with which the university and
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., view
hazing, and sends a clear message
that, when hazing occurs, the univer-
sity will impose strong sanctions in
cooperation with national fraternitv
leaders, when appropriate," says
Roland King, UMCP director of pub-
Should the fraternity wish to
apply for recognition after the five-
year suspension, a specific agreement
including periodic reviews of chapter
purposes, procedures, governance,
activities and members' academic
standing also will be required.
Last April, an anonymous letter
alleging abuse of the fraternity's
pledges was distributed to university
Following a preliminary investiga-
tion, the university placed the Omega
Psi Phi chapter on suspension pend-
ing the conclusion of a full investiga-
tion. Subsequently, officials of the
national fraternity also suspended the
Related cases involving individual
members of Omega Psi Phi were held
in abeyance pending action against
the fraternity. Disciplinary actions
taken against individuals are consid-
ered confidential under the Family

Open Enrollment Delayed While State Addresses Health Costs
Governor Schaefer has ordered an
extension of state employees' existing
health insurance coverage until bud-
get officials can develop a solution
acceptable to employees, taxpayers
and the administration.
Schaefer also announced that Bud-
get and Fiscal Planning Secretarv
Charles Benton will begin overseeing
the Employee Health Insurance Pro-
gram, now administered bv the
Department of Personnel.
"While it's common knowledge
that health care costs generally have
been increasing at a rate of about ten
percent a year," says Schaefer, "a
one-vear, five-fold increase in the cost
to our state employees effective Jan. 1
Note-taking Service Gets Mixed Reviews
To the delight of students and the
concern of some faculty, mass-pro-
duced class notes are available on
campus in the Student Union for
S22.5D a semester.
First Class Notes works with the
University Book Center and Commu-
nications Services to produce notes
for large, lecture- type classes, says
Melissa MacKinnon, a representative
of the company. The professors of the
courses give their written approval,
retain copyright over the notes and
receive a commission for their
The service, which is in its third
semester, started with just two class-
es. This semester, 32 classes allow the
service. But, some faculty are not
quick to embrace
fessor of psy-
using the ser-
vice in the
spring. "The one
reservation that I
have is what if stu-
dents don't come to
class?" he says. "I
like teaching so
much that 1 want my
students to come to class."
Economics Professor John Dorsey,
who allows the notes in several of his
large lecture classes, says that he
hasn't noticed a decline in his atten-
dance. At least no more than usual.
"I teach a class with 500 students
in a classroom that seats 500 students.
If they all came, it would be unbear-
able," Dorsey says,
Dorsey allowed the notes in his
classes because he had learned that
another company was taking notes
on his class without his permission.
"I'd rather have somebody do it with
my permission than without my per-
mission," Dorsey says.
Joseph Cirrincione, an associate
professor of geography and the first
professor to allow the notes, has had
the same problem. "I'm very scared
in these other situations where they
pay an undergraduate to attend class
and take notes," Cirrincione says.
Professors are encouraged to
choose their own note-takers, usually
their teaching assistants, and some
professors have written their class
For students without financial
resources, the notes are available to
students with a university ID to bor-
row and copy. For more information,

is totally unacceptable."
Benton and his staff will negotiate
with insurers an extension of existing
health insurance contracts while
working out a solution to address
increasing health costs. State
employees will continue to be cov-
ered by their existing policies and
continue to pay their current premi-
um until a new plan is developed.
Schaefer says he will propose leg-
islation to transfer administration of
the $261 million state employee
health insurance program from the
Department of Personnel to the
Department of Budget and Fiscal
"We have to acknowledge that
health costs are increasing," says
Schaefer, "But we also owe it to state
employees to come up with a reason-
able health plan, and give them
enough time to decide which plan
will serve them best."

Campaign in conjunction with World AIDS Day/Day Without Art on Wednes-
day, Dec. 1. The goal is to blanket the campus with red ribbons as a sign of
support and commitment. Volunteers are needed to donate supplies (ribbons
and safety pins), and to assemble pins. To help, call Mary Lynn Gillis at 314-

Building a Better Mousetrap
aft Engineering Retools to Give Hands-on Experience
The lecture halls
were the worst, Mar-
ilyn Berman remem-
bers. Students were
packed in so tight-
ly to the two sec-
tions of ENES1 00
the atmosphere often more
resembled a small concert. Professors
were largely unseen, the bulk of the
teaching done by TAs dutifully — and
dryly — making their way through the
textbook. Hands-on work? Design-
ing? Drafting? That would come
later. Much later.
Assuming that a freshman engi-
neering student was still around by
Many weren't. They were drop-
ping out, changing majors, beating it
out of the program any which way
they could. Retention suffered great-
ly. The fault, Berman says, lay not
with the students, but with the pro-
"It was a dull program," says
Berman, associate dean of the College
of Engineering. "It had no relevance
to students' lives."
Two years later, as the College of
Engineering celebrates its centennial
anniversary, it's also a time to cele-
brate the new, vastly improved fresh-
man engineering program.
Aided by a five-year, seven-school
grant from the National Science
Foundation, the new program is
based, in theory, upon the findings of
Uri Thigsman, a professor of mathe-
matics at Cal- Berkeley whose
research has demonstrated the link
between team learning and minority
performance, and James W. Dally
and Guangming Zhang, two of the
college's own professors of mechani-
cal engineering here.
If these three provided a founda-
tion, it was largely the bureaucratic
labors of Professor Tom Regan,
among others in the college, that saw
the reformation through to reality.
What they came up with is "a new
wav of doing engineering," he says.
"Something had to be done," says
Regan. "We can't just sit back and
think of ourselves as a research insti-
tution. We've got to be a more bal-
Stressing design and emphasizing
a collaborative, hands-on approach to
learning, the program puts students
to work in small teams specially
selected by the faculty to ensure a
mixture of race, culture and gender.
With no more than 30 to a section,
and no more than 10 to a team, stu-
dents have no choice but to rely upon
one another, learning to "share the
tasks," as Regan says, in the building
of an electricity- producing windmill,
To assist the students, the college
has gone so far as to install computer-
aided design "auto sketch" and
spread sheet programs. But this has
not eliminated the need for individu-
alized instruction. On the contrary,
wherever students turn, they can find
help or encouragement. Not only is
there a faculty member for each of
the 13 classes, there is a senior under-
graduate teaching fellow and a teach-
ing assistant whose primary
responsibility is to serve as consultant
in the computer labs.
In many ways, the program is
proving to be a success. For one
thing, says Regan, "You see the
women really taking the leadership
role" in their teams. "They're getting
involved much more."
That seems to be the case outside
the classroom, as well. This year, as
Regan notes, the student presidents
of Tau Beta Pi, the Council of Engi-
neering Societies, and the Engineer-
ing Alumni Association, and at least
two other individual societies, are all
women. "1 don't think we've ever
seen that before," Regan says.
And if the findings of Thigsman,
Dallv and Zhang are accurate, the
college has every right to expect
minority retention to improve dra-
matically. The program's attrition
rate, according to early indications, is
ing students team up
to build a windmill,
the first project
undertaken In the
Sess than 10 percent, though it will be
years before all the data is in.
Still, Regan counts the program a
terrific success. Interest is up. Enthu-
siasm is running high.
"You always hear a lot of talk in
educational circles about empower-
ing the student," he says. "We're
really doing it."
