NOVEMBER 1, 1993 

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 
Computer, Mathe- 
matical and Physi- 
cal Sciences was 
selected as having 

two of the best 
graduate pro- 
grams in com- 
puter science 
and physics in 
the nation as 
part of the 
annual survey of Ameri- 
ca's best colleges by U.S. Neivs & 
World Report. 

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 

Bridges to Understanding 

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.

Counseling Center Guide Helps Faculty Assist Students 

The Counseling Center announces the publication of a guide to assist faculty, 
titled "Helping Students in Distress." The guide includes information about 
common problems, tips on how to respond, emergency procedures, guidelines 
on how to make a referral to professionals and a flyer summarizing the infor- 
mation. To obtain a copy, stop bv the Counseling Center in Shoemaker Hall or

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 
on campus. 

"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- 
lic information. 

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 
Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
("Buckley Amendment"). 

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 
a note-taking 
service on 
Plude, an 
associate pro- 
fessor of psy- 
chology, is 
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 
notes themselves. 

For students without financial 
resources, the notes are available to 
students with a university ID to bor- 
row and copy. For more information, 
contact the University Book Center at 
31 4- BOOK.

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."

Make It a Red Ribbon Day 

Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed service fraternity, is coordinating a Red Ribbon 
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- 
6257 or Lyneea Malouff at 314-4143. 


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 
that time. 

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- 
anced school." 

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, 
for example. 

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 

Freshman engineer- 
ing students team up 
to build a windmill, 
the first project 
undertaken In the 
new program. 

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."
