NOVEMBER 15, 1993 

For the Records 

Moving trucks begin rolling down Adelphi 
Road on Monday, Kov. 15, as billions of docu- 
ments, millions of maps and reels of motion 
picture footage, and thousands of drawings 
are moved from Washington's National 
Archives to the new Archives II complex In 
College Park, Situated on 33 acres of UMCP 
property, the IJ mrlllon-square-foot, $250 mil- 
lion building will be the largest, most techni- 
cally advanced archive facility in the world. 
Moving all the materials is a three-year process. 

Also making the mid-November move are 
the audiotapes, letters, photographs and film 
that make up the Nixon Presidential Materials 
Project, slated to be open to the public by 
ian. 3. 

Minority Enrollment and Employment at Ail-Time High 

New enrollment figures show that 
the percentage of full-time African- 
American imdergraduate students is 
at an all-time high, as is the percent- 
age of full-time African- American 
graduate students. African- American 
students now makeup 12 percent of 
the total undergraduate student pop- 
ulation, and seven percent of the total 
graduate student population. 

This year's freshman class is 15 
percent African-American, a 38 per- 
cent increase over last year. Overall, 
the African-American student popu- 
lation has increased 12 percent over 
the last decade. In addition, the Asian 
student population has increased 64 

percent and the Hispanic student 
population has increased 41 percent. 

The university also is posting 
record numbers of minority employ- 
ees. In the past decade, the percent- 
age of minority employees, including 
faculty, administrators and staff, has 
increased 38 percent. The number of 
Hispanic employees has increased 
124 percent in the past decade, the 
number of Asian employees has 
increased 1 10 percent, and the num- 
ber of African-American employees 
has increased IS percent. 

"These numbers are good news for 
this campus," says President William 
E. Kirwan, who notes that thev show 

the effectiveness of strong, long- 
standing diversity efforts. 

These efforts have also resulted in 
increased retention and graduation 
rates. Recent retention statistics show 
that the percentage of African- Ameri- 
can students who have either gradu- 
ated or are still enrolled five years 
after entering as freshmen has grown 
from 35 percent in 1986 to 48 percent 
in 1992. 

And in 1992, UMCP was named, 
by the magazine Black Issues in Higbi'r 
Education, the national leader among 
traditionally white schools in the 
number of baccalaureate and doctoral 
degrees awarded to black students.

Women Needed for Therapy Research Project 

A day-long therapy session with an experienceti female therapist from the D.C, 
area is offered without charge for women, ages 20 or ulder, interested in dis- 
cussing interpersonal issues in exchange for participation in a research project. 
The small group sessions, involving six to eight participants, will be offered 
Saturdays and Sundays for the balance of the year and during January. Each 
participant will be asked to evaluate the group session and how she was affect- 
ed by other group members. Participadon is confidential. For more informa-

A Change for the Better 

Center Helps Create a Receptive Climate for Environmental Businesses in State 

The four-year-old Center for Glob- 
al Change is setting its sights on 
Maryland. The center, in conjunction 
with the Maryland Department of 
Economic and Employment Develop- 
ment (DEED) and the Maryland 
Department of the Environment 
(MDE), has published a Maryland 
Directory of Environmental Business- 
es, subtitled "Environmental 
Resources for a Sound Global 
Future." The prototype was issued 
this fall, with the final expanded ver- 
sion scheduled for arrival in January. 

The directory' had its beginnings in 
1989 when the center gathered infor- 
mation on environmental companies 
for the governor to use in conjunction 
with a tratie mission to Eastern 
Europe, says Christopher Fox, assis- 
tant director of the Center for Global 
Change. Later, in 1992, with funding 
from the Chesapeake Bav Trust, the 
center worked with the Baltimore 
Resources Journal to compile further 
a list of environmental businesses. 

In January 1993, the center 
received a grant from UMCP's State 
Liaison Higher Education Project to 
work with Maryland state agencies to 
foster environmental business and 
technology development in Mary- 
land. Around the same time, interest 
in the potential for Maryland's envi- 
ronmental industry was emerging at 
both DEED and MDE. 

Fox explains that the environmen- 
tal industry, while growing in Mary- 
land, is ver\' diverse and difficult to 
categorize. At the time, the center had 
n formation on approximately 290 
companies. By pooling information 

with DEED and MDE, tapping into 
associations to which environmental 
companies belong, talking to 
investors interested in environmental 
companies as well as other sources, 
they compiled a list of about 800 
Maryland environmental companies 
to survey. 

Maryland's enviromnental indus- 
try was further broken down into the 
following categories: air quality, 
alternative agriculture, energy /ener- 
gy efficiency, alternative transporta- 
tion, environmental information/ 
services, environmental monitoring, 
environmentally sound/ recycled 
products, ground pollution, indoor 
pollution, waste and water quality. 
As a result, the joint state /center 
effort has yielded statistical data on 
nearly 600 companies. 

The center will soon conduct an 
in-person field survey to develop a 
sectoral analysis of the state's envi- 
ronmental industry to determine, 
says Fox, "emerging opportunities 
and barriers to growth as well as 
strategies to help foster the industry." 
Fox and colleagues will begin work 
this month and expect to have a 
report in January. The center will 
make recommendations to DEED and 
MDE about where Maryland stands 
the best chance to capture business 
that is not only good fcir the environ- 
ment, but equally good for Mary- 
land's economic growth. 

Nationwide, the environmental 
industry is growing for numerous 
reasons including response to state 
and federal regulatory agencies, con- 
sumer preference and corporate lia- 

Bringing Geography Down to Earth 

Geography is more than the study 
of maps. It also includes the study of 
the climates, populations, and the 
industries of the earth's divisions. 

From Nov. 14 to Nov. 20, the cam- 
pus celebrates Geography Awareness 
Week, an informative week pro- 
claimed by Congress six years 
ago to help people learn about 

Included in the celebration is 
the Geography Department's 
open house for the university 
community on Thursday, Nov. 18, 
from 11:1 3 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., in room 
1124 LeFrak Flail. The department 
has had a computer lab since 1980, 
but will open an extension of it dur- 
ing the open house. 

The databases available in the lab 
include information from the Bureau 
of the Census, the Digital Chart of the 
World and from local government 

On Friday, Nov. 19, from 10 a.m. 
to 2 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 20, 

from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the general 
public will be able to make maps and 
browse information during another 
open house also to be iield in 1 1 24 

"We want to try to get Joe Public 
to use the resources that are avail- 
able," says Professor Derek Thomp- 
son of the Geography Department. 
"An open house is one way that we 
can raise the level of awareness." 

A seminar on how to use geo- 
graphical information systems will be 
held on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 3:30 
p.m., in 1179 LeFrak Hall for up to 20 
faculty and staff. 

Thompson says that simpler pro- 
grams can be accessed and used with 
approximately an hour of orientation, 
while more complicated programs in 
which someone enters his or her own 
data could take weeks to learn how to

bility issues. As a prime example of 
technology development driven by 
legislation. Fox looks to California. 
Plagued with droughts over recent 
years, California legislators imposed 
heavy restrictions on water usage by 
its residents. A byproduct of this leg- 
islation has been the phenomenal 
growth of a new industry in Califor- 
nia—products designed with water 
conservation in mind, such as water- 
saving shower heads and sink aera-

likely to increase if a federal initiative 
introduced by Senator Barbara 
Mikulski, of Maryland, passes. She 
proposes establishing a National 
Environmental Technology Agency 
to focus federal resources. 

"Pollution prevention and energy 
efficiency are two areas in which 
Maryland can excel," says Fox, 
based upon preliminary data 
With the help of the Center 
for Global Change, the state 
stands a good chance of 
improving the climate for 
environmental business.

stop in the Name of Diversity 

The campus will be looking more 
colorful the week of Nov. 14 to 20. 
That's when students, faculty and 
staff will be seen sporting buttons in 
support of Operation STOP, a pro- 
gram designed to promote diversity 
on campus and educate the commu- 
nity about reporting acts of prejudice 
and racism. 

The program is an outgrowth of 
one the Administrative Affairs office 
undertook for its employees last year 
during Diversity Week at UMCP, 
"This year, we're opening up the pro- 
gram to the entire campus communi- 
ty to increase awareness about 
diversity," says Lt. Jay Gruber of Uni- 
versity Police. 

Buttons available in four bright 
colors (yellow, blue, orange and 
green) will be given out to anyone 
interested in helping to promote 
awareness of all types of discrimina- 
tion. According to Gruber, yellow 
represents discrimination of the dis- 
abled; blue represents racial discrin\i- 
nation; orange represents 
discrimination based on sexual orien- 
tation; and green represents religious 

Organized by University Police 
and the Office of Muman Relations 
Programs, Operation STOP aims to 
educate members of the community 
about options available to them in the 
event they are a victim or witness of a

coutiimt'd from page 7 

chaired by Joan VVcjod (dean's office, 
College of Arts and Humanities) and 
Stewart Edelstein of the College of 
Behavioral and Social Science, have 
met regularly to develop a program 
that is consistent with the needs of 
the campus's employees and supervi- 

Relying on input from employees, 
the group has made preliminary deci- 
sions on several features of the PRD 
program. These include the nature of 
the performance management pro- 
cess, the type of evaluation form and 
the content of training that will be 
given to both supervisors and their 
employees. These features will be 
included in the pilot program that 
will run from November to March. 

Taylor says that she and the Per- 
sonnel Advisory Committee welcome 
comments and suggestions. Interest- 
ed parties may contact any of the fol- 
lowing individuals: Taylor, 405-2240; 
her assistant Suzanne Masterson, 405-

dents are acts of prejudice, hate or 
violence directed against individuals, 
groups or institutions because of race, 
religion, ethnic background or sexual 
orientation. These incidents are 
intended to cause harm and may 
result in physical injury, emotional 
injury or property damage. "Many 
people on campus are not aware that 
they can report these incidents to uni- 
versity police and we will follow-up 
and file a report," says Gruber. Vic- 
tims or witnesses of RRES incidents 
should report incidents to the Univer- 
sity Police (405-3555) or the Campus 
Compliance Officer, Rodney 
Petersen, at 405-2838.

A Salute to Composer Britten 

Birthday Festival Honors his Life and Work 

It is only fitting that Benjamin Brit- 
ten (1913-1976), one of Britain's fore- 
most composers, was born on St. 
Cecilia's Day (Nov. 22), so named for 
the patron saint of music. This year 
would have been Britten's 80th birth- 
day. Because of that distinction James 
McDonald, professor of music, consid- 
ered a festival to mark the occasion. 

So what began as one man's 
notion about a year-and-a-half ago 
"snowballed into a major undertak- 
ing involving the entire Department 
of Music and the Department of 
English, as well," says McDonald, 
artistic director for the Benjamin Brit- 
ten Birthday Festival, which runs Fri- 
day, Nov, 19, to Monday, Nov. 22. 

As part of the celebration, McDon- 
ald asked fellow professor Lawrence 
Moss to compose a musical work to 
commemorate the occasion. Original- 
ly, McDonald suggested selecting a 
text from W.H. Auden, a contempo- 
rary of Britten's who influenced him 
greatly. But as Moss describes in his 
program notes ". . .in deference to 
Britten's work with young musicians, 
[McDonald! also included a book 
called Miracles, a collection of poems 
by children, ages four to 14," 

From the more than TOO poems, 
with titles such as "Clouds," "Night," 
'Thunder," and "The Full Moon/' 
Moss selected ten to create a minia- 
ture nature cycle. It is composed for 
tenor, harp and oboe — "a somewhat 
unusual combination," says McDon- 
ald. He describes the work as impres- 
sionistic music, composed as a tribute 
to Britten but not written to emulate 
his style. 

In addition to the premiere of 
Moss's composition, the culminating 
Birthday Celebration on Nov. 22 will 

feature the American 
premiere of a move- 
ment from "Wind 
Sextet," written 
when Britten was 
just 14, says McDon- 

Besides four tick- 
eted musical events, 
the Britten festival 
offers several free 
events including lec- 
tures with distin- 
guished guest 
speakers, as well as a 
performance by the 
Maryland Boy Choir 
on Friday, Nov. 19, 
at 4 p.m., in Tawes 
Recital Hall. The opening lecture on 
Friday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m., features 
Humphrey Carpenter, author of Ben- 
jamin Britten: A Biography. 

A symposium on "Billy Budd," 
Britten's opera based on the Herman 
Melville classic, will be held at 3 p.m., 
Monday, Nov. 22, room 3203, Horn- 
bake Library, McDonald says that the 
opera is unusual because it was writ- 
ten for an all-male cast. Among the 
guest speakers is American baritone 
Theodor Uppman, original "Billy" 
cast member. 

Tickets are sold out for the 8 p.m., 
Friday, Nov, 19 performance of Brit- 
ten's "The Turn of the Screw," pre- 
sented by the Maryland Opera 
Studio, and for the Birthday Celebra- 
tion concert on Monday, Nov, 22, 

For a complete hsting of all Britten 
Festival events, please turn to the 
Calendar, For up-to-date ticket avail- 
ability, call the concert office at 405-
