Sugar Ray at
Leadership Academy to Dedicate
New Library to the State's
First Woman Treasurer
The university's James MacGregor Bums Academy of
Leadership celebrates the opening of the new Lucille
Maurer Leadership Library on May 7, honoring the first
woman to be elected Maryland State Treasurer.
The celebration includes a dedication ceremony from
2 to 4 p.m. at the library, located in Taliaferro Hall, fol-
lowed by two lectures examining issues of leadership
and global affairs.
Maurer, who served as state treasurer from 1987-1996,
began her career in public service as a member of the
Montgomery County Board of Education in I960. A resi-
dent of Montgomery County since 1950, she later served
18 year in the House of Delegates.
"Lucy Maurer mentored and empowered a whole gen-
eration of women leaders in Maryland," says Georgia
Sorenson, founding director of the Academy of
Leadership/But she was much more than a mentor -
she was a friend, collaborator, confidant and coach," she
adds. Maurer also served on the Academy's first board of
directors and often met with students over the years.
Several members of the Maryland General Assembly are
expected to attend the dedication ceremony, including
Senate President Mike Miller and Senator Jennie Forehand.
The General Assembly provided generous funding for the
library's construction; Delegate Nancy Kopp, along with
Senator Forehand and Ida Ruben, were early and impor-
tant supporters of the project, Maurer's surviving family
members and university President Dan Mote will also be
present at Friday's dedication ceremony.
The library is designed to serve leadership scholars
and includes a broad array of materials relating to the
study of political and public leadership. Substantial
emphasis will be placed on collecting materials on
women's leadership. In addition to Maurer's personal
papers documenting her long career in public service,
the university will also collect materials from other
Maryland women legislators, as well as prominent leader-
Following the dedication, a panel presentation,
"Clinton's Foreign Policy: A Critical Assessment "will take
place from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. in room 0106 of Francis
Scott Key Hail. The program is jointly sponsored by the
Fulbright International Center and Academy's Center for
the Advanced Study of Leadership. Topics will include
President Clinton's effectiveness as a global leader and
the extent of his impact on international relations. The
panel includes Harriet Mayor Fulbright, president of the
Fulbright Center's board of directors, and renowned
Pulitzer-Prize winning political scientist James
The fifth annual lecture of the Baha'i Chair for World
Peace follows at 7 p.m. and features the former president
of Lebanon, Amine Gemayel (1982-1 988), The lecture,
"Religion, Conflict Resolution, and the Role of
Leadership," will address the dynamics of foreign affairs
today. Gemayel is currently a distinguished public leader
with the Academy of Leadership and distinguished visit-
ing professor with the Center for International
Development and Conflict Management. Advance tickets

More Top Quality Students Want to Attend University
The university projects another record-break-
ing year for the quality of admitted students. The
number of applications, GPAs and SAT scores
are all up from the same time last year.
As of April 15, applications were up 12 per-
cent and the academic quality of students who
enroll this fall is also expected to exceed last
year's entering class.
For the last 10 years the quality of students
admitted to the University of
Maryland has steadily risen.
Average GPAs for incoming
freshmen have risen from
just less than 3-0 to a pro-
jected 3-69, SAT scores of
the middle 50 percent have gone from 980-
1,150 to a projected 1,170-1,340, and the num-
ber of students with SAT scores above 1,300 has
increased from 234 to a projected 1,155.
"The number and quality of students
applying are indicative of the university's
stature as a first-class research university,"
says Linda Clement, director of under-
graduate admissions. "We are very pleased to see
more and more of the brightest students
,^^^. in Maryland choose us."
^^ The- university has the state's largest con-
centration of academically talented stu-
dents, with more than one-third of them
enrolled in the invitation-only Honors, Honors
Humanities, College Fark Scholars or Gemstone
programs. Approximately 63 per-
cent of in-state students who apply
to the university are admitted,
compared to about 45 percent of
While applications are up from
16,678 last year to 18,663 this year, the percent-
age of students being admitted Is smaller, last
year's admission rate was 59 percent; this year's
admission rate has dropped
to 53 percent.
"Our level of selectivity
is extremely high, as more
students apply for the same number of spaces
available in the freshman class," says Clement.
This fell, the university expects to enroll 3,850
Faculty Discuss Teaching with Technology
Technological innovations and pedagogical issues were the topics of discussion last week
when the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) and Academic Information Technology
Services (aTTs) sponsored the sixth Teaching With Technology symposium.
Webbased and multimedia technologies are changing the ways faculty interact with their
students and are providing students with new means of collaborating and interacting with
course content. Faculty from Architecture, Education, Mathematics, Psychology, Engineering,
American Studies and Life Sciences conducted presentations, demonstrations and panel dis-
cussions for their peers in Van Munching Hall.

May-i. 1'W Outlook 3
Paul Traver's office is alive with
the sound of music. Someone's
playing the piano next door
and the strains mingle with the
ringing of the telephone on his secre-
The melody is shut out when he
closes the door before sitting down.
The only trace of music left in this
rather gray and typical office room is
on the -walls — a few posters of festi-
vals at the University of Maryland and
abroad from among the many that
Traver's either organized or been to.
His own desk is cluttered with files
and papers." I wish I could tell you it
doesn't look like this every day," says
Traver, 68, a small man with a brisk but
good-humored air,"But it does."
Very soon, however, he will shut out
the paperwork and take on the music
instead. After 42 years at the university,
the founding director of the University
of Maryland Chorus and professor at
the School of Music will retire at the
end of this semester.
Those at the school will deeply miss
this "gentleman and scholar," says
Christopher Kendall, director of the
School of Music, who describes Traver
as "a legend in his own time at the insti-
"He has made a magnificent contri-
bution to the educational mission of
the school as a passionate advocate of
the highest principles of education in
music," Kendall says.
Traver will not leave the school after
retirement, however, but will continue
as a "guest" for two more years, until
the end of spring 2001 . During this
time he will only take part in rehearsals
and performances. "No more adminis-
trative work, no more faculty meetings,"
he says with a gleeful look on his face.
"I love that — I haven't heard anything
new at a meeting for the last 30 years."
But there have been plenty of new
things to do over his four decades here,
during which he's founded the
Chamber Singers, the University Chorus
of Maryland, and the Maryland Handel
Festival, among other things.
Traver feels he has had a "great time"
at the university. His usually jovial voice
takes on a slightly blue, speculative
tone as he says:"! have enjoyed my job.
It has combined the two things 1 most
love — music and teaching. And 1 have
been fairly successful in both those
That could be a gross understate-
ment.Traver has been the force behind
the success of the Maryland Chorus
which he founded in 1967, and which
is recognized all through the country
and through Europe. Kendall remem-
bers the first time he heard the
Maryland Chorus when he came to
Washington in the mid-1970s to study
conducting with Antal Dorati, then
music director of the National
"The Chorus's performances with
the NSO were world-class, and I
became a fan of the choral sound and
approach to the great choral literature
of Paul Traver's chorus " Kendall says.
On campus, Traver is also known as
a mentor to hundreds of students and
members of the Chamber Singers and
the Maryland Chorus.
Alfred Boyd, associate professor at
the department of chemistry, sang for
both the Chamber Singers and the
Chorus, during which time "I got to
know [Traver] very well. He is genial,
affable and a pleasure to be with," he
pauses, then adds with a laugh, "at least
most of the time."
In rehearsal, Boyd says, Traver
is "demanding, and obviously
produces good results." His asso-
ciation with Traver dates back 40
years — "we joined the universi-
ty in the same year."
That year was 1957. Traver
recalls joining the school of
music as an instructor — "This
was my first and only job," he
But earlier on in life, he
almost missed his calling. Traver,
who was born in Washington,
D.C. and brought up in
Maryland, first enrolled in col-
lege at George Washington
University as a business major.
"But soon I decided I didn't
want to spend my life doing
this," he says, so he gave up and
joined what was then called the
Wilson Teachers' College, also in
Washington, with the ambition
of becoming an elementary
"When this didn't work out
either, he decided to learn
music, to which he had been
introduced at a young age. A nun
at his school had taught him
choral conducting and the
piano. Looking back, he says, "it's
amazing that what 1 am doing
today is where she started me out."
Although his father didn't quite
approve of his son's chosen vocation at
first, Traver went on to earn both a
bachelor's degree in music and then a
master's degree in piano studies from
the Catholic University of America in
Washington, D.C. He then earned a doc-
toral degree from Stanford University,
before joining the University of
At the School of Music,Traver met
his future wife, Mary Kathryn. She gave
up the job after they were married.
"She is a pianist as well, and I took over
from her after she left. I trained the
first student here to graduate with a
major in piano," he recalls.
Since then, he has trained hundreds
of students even as the school has gone
through "enormous" changes. "We had
14 faculty members when 1 joined, and
now we have nearly 50. We have also
grown in the number of programs
offered ."The university now offers doc-
torates in major fields of music, he
As for himself, he couldn't be happi-
er with how his own career shaped up
at the school. "Everything in my life lias
come at the right time," he says.
He hopes before he leaves, he will
be able to perform at the concert hall
in the new fine arts theatre which is
currently under construction. He also
will organize the Handel fesdval on
campus in 2001.
The Handel Festival, the only one of
its kind in the country which draws
books, travel with my wife, spend more
time with my grandchildren... You've

He points to pictures of his four
grandchildren, and another one of him-
self with his wife and children. "She's
the talented one in the family," he says
of his wife.Two of his three children
live in Washington and while none of
them are professional musicians, "they
have all learned music."
Among the books he plans to write,
there will be one about choral history.
"I could produce a very good book on
techniques of conducting," he says. He
would like to write a small monograph

brainchild of Traver and his friend,
Howard Serwer.They decided on
Handel, he says, as there was no festival
dedicated to him in the country, but
wondered if the university would be
"The first year itself was a great suc-
cess," he remembers. "We got a six-col-
umn article in the New Yorker, written
by Andrew Porter, who was a great
Handel expert. That article clinched the
deal for us."
He has seen the school through
many other such successes, but now
feels it is time he stepped down. "I am
not as young as I once was. I can still
handle the work, but I pay a higher

his retired life will be full of new tilings
to do. "I would like to write a couple of

poser Antal Dorati. "[Dorati's] impact on
mine and the university's life is pro-
Another subject he wants to write
about is the history of the Maryland
Chorus. "These people have given and
given and given to the chorus in every
way — they have worked beyond
understanding and goodwill," he says,
and this will be his way of showing his
appreciation of their hard work.
He also expresses appreciation of
the support he has received from the
university for his various projects."!

and blessed people on earth."

smile.Tt's been a good life,"
