Page 4 THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND FACULTY AND STAFF WEEKLY NEWSPAPER Volume iS * Number I • September 3, 2 002 Search is on For New Vice President The University of Mary- land is reopening a national search to fill the position of vice president for administrative affairs, which was vacated in June as a result of Charles Sturtz's retirement. Linda Clement, vice president for student affairs, will chair the search committee, whose full membership is listed below. The position announcement is appearing in numerous publi- cations. The most effective way to identify outstanding individu- als for a position at this level is through personal contact. Presi- dent Dan Mote welcomes assis- tance in bringing to the notice of the committee to any quali- fied colleagues. "The reputation and achieve- ment of our academic pro- grams, faculty, students, teach- ing, research arid service are at an all-time high," said Mote in an annoucement. "Thanks to the generous support and work of the state and many others, the University of Maryland is the most important engine of knowledge and prosperity in the state. Because our prospects for continued growth in stature and achievement of our lofty goals are very good, I expect this position to be attractive to candidates who wish to help build a great academic enter- prise." The vice president for admin- istrative affairs is a member of the senior leadership team of the campus and reports to the president. As the chief fiscal officer of the institution, he or she is responsible for the devel- opment and oversight of all fis- cal planning, policies and regu- lations; the fiscal administration of all institutional funds; and the cost effective planning and operation of the university's major administrative functions. The vice president provides line supervision for the follow- ing functions: finance and accounting; human resources; purchasing and contracts; facili- ties planning; facilities manage- ment; public safety; auxiliary enterprises related to adminis- trative functions; and service units which provide logistical support for the university. The supervision of these activities is carried out in accordance with policies and guidelines set forth by the state, the University Sys- tem of Maryland and the presi- dent. The vice president also serves as a representative of the president on various university See SEARCH, page 3 PHOTO BY CYNTHIA MITCHEL Roger Can del aria, the campus' new compliance officer, can list rancher on his resume as well. Helping People Get Along New Campus Compliance Officer Stresses Common Humanity Roger Candeiaria finds people fascinat- ing and their value to each other of great importance. These are good traits for the campus' new compliance officer. It seems Candeiaria matches his new responsibilities quite well. The campus com- pliance officer investigates complaints of any kind of discrimination, with respect to employ- ment and education, as set forth in the Human Relations Code produced by the Office of Human Relations Programs (OHRP). The offi- cer works to resolve complaints collaborative- ly with the parties involved in a complaint, as well as with the other members of the Con- flict Resolution Network, members of the Equity Council , Judicial Programs staff, Depart- ment of Resident life staff, Peer Mediation Pro- gram staff and the Legal Office staff. "My Job is to listen to people to see how and why we treat each other badly, and to influence the way we treat each other in a direction that accurately reflects the value of each person," is how Candeiaria interprets his new job. "We don't treat each other as real repositories of value." Perhaps Candeiaria 's deeply felt belief in the importance of being good to one another comes from time spent among an isolated Indi- an tribe in Colorado. Perhaps his clear-eyed look at justice comes from years as a munici- pal judge. Just out of law school, he headed to the Southern Ute Reservation near Towaoc, See CANDEIARIA, page 2 Comcast Seating Decisions, Arrangements Explained Below are answers to a number of the com- mon misconceptions regarding the University New Arena Seat Committee Plans for Comcast Center. Concern: The people who developed this plan are forc- ing out season ticket holders in favor of those with deep pockets. Fact: At present, more than 200 donors have selected seats in Comcast with lifetime giving as low as $ 1 ,500. They are eligible for seats because they accumulated Terpoints in other ways than gift giving, like membership referrals. The ability to seat donors with such limited lifetime giv- ing is not the norm in colle- giate seating plans at high-pro- file programs with similar demands for tickets. Maryland has tried hard to accommo- date such individuals. Fact: There were 3,164 total ticket accounts in Cole. Of these, at least 92.3 percent will transfer to Comcast for full or partial ticket packages. Fact: The athletics depart- ment did not arbitrarily deter- mine the number of Terpoints necessary to qualify for Com- cast Center seating. We uti- lized the University New Arena Seat Committee Plan. Our Terrapin Club members established that figure based on their years of membership, number of referrals, personal contributions, and season tick- et purchases for football, men's basketball and women's basketball for years in which that individual was a Terrapin Club member. Concern: Why not build a larger facility to meet the demand for season tickets? Fact: The size and scope of the building, including perma- nent seats, was capped by the state. Two-hundred and nine- ty-two portable seats will be of benefit to those who did not qualify for seats in the permanent bowl. Fact: To accommodate as many Terrapin Club members as possible, the athletics department added, at its own expense, the portable seats in the end zones. The one-time See COMCAST, page 3 Sportsmanship Takes Center Stage What the university wants to make clear is this: being a good fan means more than painting your face with Terp colors or sleeping on the cold ground for tickets. It also means not destroying property and causing disturbances. Being a good fan includes behaving respectfully and responsibly whether teams win or lose. To assist fans, particularly stu- dents, with understanding what this means and what will be done following unacceptable behavior, the university is begin- ning a comprehensive sports- manship campaign, featuring coaches Gary Williams and Ralph Friedgen. "We want to continue and enhance the efforts from last year so that fans will know how to make the university proud," said Terry Flannery, executive director of marketing and com- munications. "And we're going to be very clear in communicat- ing the consequences if you don't abide by the expecta- tions." Those consequences include stricter punishment for those caught rioting, destroying prop- erty or committing other acts of violence after a game. A new Board of Regents policy, approved on July 10, calls for "dismissal of any student who Is convicted in any state or federal court, or found responsible in any campus judicial proceed- ing, of rioting, assault, theft, van- dalism, arson, or breach of peace, provided such miscon- duct was related directly or indirectly to University spon- sored activities, including athlet- ic events." Those expelled may not be admitted to any Universi- ty System of Maryland school for one year from the date of expulsion. One of the tactics being employed to spread the mes- sage of respect and integrity is the issuance and dissemination of a Statement of Sportsman- ship: "The University of Maryland fully supports the principles and practices of sportsmanship adopted by the National Colle- giate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Atlantic Coast Con ference (ACQ. Sportsmanship entails respect for the game, the officials, our team, our oppo- nent and our institution. We are committed to the attainment and celebration of excellence, respect for the rights and opin- ions of others, and winning with integrity."

Fans: Champions Continued from page 1 A media relations cam- paign will attempt to reach the community through edi- torial pieces in local news- papers and the statement will be printed on the backs of Terps stickers distributed at games. Linda Clement, vice president for student affairs and committee mem- ber, says the community was involved in the efforts at several levels. "We held focus groups in the spring [of last year] . We had the mayor and the city council involved "she said. A third prong of the cam- paign will include public service announcements and posters featuring Williams and Friedgen reminding fans that "championship teams need championship fans." And borrowing a phrase Friedgen is known for among his players: "We got a good thing going here. Are you out or are you in?" This is the first time the university has been so broad-based with a sports- manship effort, said Clement, and the committee knows it will need to be repeated. "We get a new batch of freshman and transfer stu- dents every year," said Clement. "We are prepared to do this education process every year." calendar guide Calendar phone numbers listed as 4-xxxx or 5-xxxx stand for the prefix 314 or 405.

As part of an innovative ethics training program, full- time MBA students at the Robert H. Smith School of Business visit one of two fed- eral prisons in Maryland and Pennsylvania during the course of their studies. The students not only get an up close and personal tour of a federal correctional facility, but also hear the personal sto- ries of white collar criminals who are inmates. Program director and pro- fessor of accounting and information assurance . Stephen E. Loeb says the prison visits are designed to be memorable to students, who are confronted with the reality of white collar crime. "All students react different- ly to the program, but on the whole they find it worthwhile and memorable," says Loeb. "For adult learners, actually experiencing a situation is a way to really remember." Students visit a low-security prison in either Cumberland orAUenwood,Pa. They attend lectures given by former busi- ness people who made the wrong choices, but have vol- unteered to tell their stories. The lectures serve as a warn- ing to students of what can go wrong in business life when ethics go out the door and they cross the line into illegal behavior. Students also have the chance to ask inmates questions. Loeb says the prison visit program has been running since 1996. It is one of only a small number of such hands- on ethics courses in the coun- try and has become one of the things Maryland's MBA program is known for. The prison visits grew out of a revision of the MBA program In the early 1990s and the idea of using experiential learning. Loeb came up with the idea for the visits because they seemed the most inter- esting way to expose students to real life ethical issues. Loeb says the Federal Bureau of Prisons has been cooperative in allowing stu- dents into prisons, and that the program is a win-win situ- ation. It not only provides valuable ethics training for students and allows prisons to perform a community serv- ice, but also lets prisoners give something positive back to the business community. — David Youngmeyer, University Communications graduate assistant Candelaria: Listens Continued from page 1 Colo, to fulfill a judgeship with the Mountain Ute, who live on the reserva- tion's isolated western end. Unlike many tribes, they had chosen to forego tribal governance in favor of Anglo-American jurispru- dence to minimize clan divisions or a dominant clan, says Candelaria. When asked about his move to an area quite dif- ferent from the southwest, Candelaria answers , " that 's all the more reason to be here, to see more of the world, the exposure to dif- ferent kinds of diversity from that in New Mexico and Colorado." Though he is not Ute, he says he identifies with the people and culture, as he does with a myriad of oth- ers. What each group or philosophy has in common, though, is a respect and an understanding of each other. For example, one of Candelaria 's tenets of get- ting along comes from Jew- ish philosopher Martin Buber's T and Thou," which espouses a common humanity. "That another human being is another you," says Candelaria. He wants to bring this thinking to the campus through his work address- ing complaints. Just before arriving ;tt Maryland, he worked for three years as the director of employee relations and university ombudsman for the Uni- versity of Northern Col- orado in Greeley, so he brings higher education experience with him, as well. Candelaria wants the campus community to know that he is not only excited, but also prepared for his new assignment. He hopes that university em- ployees know that OHRP works on behalf of all members of the campus. The office isn't slanted against anybody. We're all trying to. . .survive and live good lives. Hopefully, our office, and particularly my area, doesn't get carica- tured as a player in some- body's larger agenda. I won't allow it." What he would like to facilitate is more people living more comfortable lives through an apprecia- tion of each other, and a confidence in their individ- ual worth. "We're here to help people see them- selves." OUTLOOK Search!

Ticket Distribution Honors Loyalty Continued from page 1 cost for these additional seats is approximately $200,000. Concern: The seating plan is unfair and disregards loyalty. Fact: Loyalty is a foundational tenet to the plan, which was developed by a group of 31 individuals, many of whom came from all giving levels of the Terrapin Club. Their plan was recommended to the athlet- ics department. The term "loy- alty" is clearly defined through theTerpoints formula — it is a definition that eliminates any and all subjectivity of the seat- ing plan. Details were provided to all Terrapin Club members on multiple occasions, beginning in September 1999. This was done in order to allow members as much opportunity as possible to accumulate Terpoints. Fact: Terpoints, which are a reflectionof loyalty to the pro- gram, reward: 1) length of membership in the Terrapin Club; 2) membership referrals; 3) season-ticket purchases in football/ men's and women's basketball in years when a Ter- rapin Club member; 4) annual donation amount to the schol- arship fund; 5) and lifetime contributions in support of ath- letics. Fact: More than 150 Terrapin Club members who did not have tickets in Cole, but have been members of the Terrapin Club for at least 15 years exer- cised their option to purchase tickets in Comcast, which is their right. Fact: One of the primary ways of accumulating Terpoints does not require a donation, it is sim- ply membership referral. Approximately 25 percent of the donor accounts in Comcast have earned Terpoints via membership referrals. In fact, one Terrapin Club member has earned Terpoints for referring 48 individuals for membership mtheTerrapinCIub. Fact: Only 2 percent of Comcast ticket account holders are flrst- yearTerrapin Club members. Concern: The blue-collar fan is being squeezed out by big, cor- porate money. Fact: Only 3 percent of the 300 Building Partners are cor- porate donors. (The Building Partners, who account for approximately 1 ,600 of the more than 17,000 seats in the arena, contributed more than $20 million to the building project). Concerns The Terrapin Club and the University New Arena Seat Committee don't care about their fans. Fact: Not only do we care, we consider our supporters to be the lifeblood of our athletics program. With a self-support- ing, $38 million operating budget that does not include any state monies, our support- ers and then gifts to the schol- arship fund are critical to our efforts to field a nationally competitive athletics program. Fact: The reality is demand for tickets, particularly after a national championship season and back-to-back Final Four appearances, is at an unprece- dented level and exceeds the supply. It's unfortunate not everyone who wants a season ticket will be able to get one. Fact: As a follow-up to three years of written notifications, staff and volunteers in April 2002 placed courtesy phone calls to provide additional, updated information to Cole Field House ticket holders who might not qualify for season tickets in Comcast. Fact We also have created a nine-^ame season ticket pack- age to allow twice as manyTer- rapin Club members, who did not qualify to be seated in the permanent seating bowl, access to the additional end zone seats in Comcast Center. Fact: Also, if single-game tick- ets are ever available .Terrapin Club members who do not have season tickets in Comcast will receive priority for pur- chase of those tickets.

He would start each day the same way: with a kind word and an ear-to-ear grin for his coworkers. Forrest, 37, was killed on July 7 while driving on Southern Avenue in Washing- ton, D.C. Police have arrested a suspect in the case. Forrest began working in the financial aid office last December. He had a strong desire to work with stu- dents, and he quickly estab- lished himself as a warm and patient advisor to students and parents. "In the short time he was here, I had several students and parents seek me out to commend Reggie on the excellent service he had pro- vided," said Gene Logan, assistant director of client services in the financial aid office. "He loved working with students so much that he was the first person to volunteer to represent the university at a college fair in New York." Shlrleyne McDonald, financial aid counselor, worked in the office right next to Forrest's. She remem- bers him as a friendly person who was quiet, but with a good sense of humor. And he adored his 14-year-old son. "He would come in to work complaining about how sore he was after playing basket- ball with Dauntae," she recalled. Bill Leith, director of financial aid, said, "Reggie clearly loved his work help- ing students and families with the financial aid process. Whenever I ended a conversation with Reggie,! felt good. His attitude and positive outlook were infec- tious." In addition to his work at the university, Forrest was active in the Delaware Bap- tist Church and had just begun working on a master's degree at the University Col- lege. A memorial fund in care of Forrest has been estab- lished at SunTrust Bank. It will provide support for Reggie's wife, Donna, and their son.
