THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND FACULTY AND STAFF WEEKLY NEWSPAPER Volume iS * Number I • September 3, 2

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

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,

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

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."

Prison Visits Give MBA 
Students Lasting Memories 



Some students at the 
University of Mary- 
land are getting a first- 
hand look at the con- 
sequences of being caught 
with their hands in the till. 

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.

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."

Comcast! 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.

In Memoriam 

Financial Aid 
Counselor 
Remeberedfor 
His Warmth 

Reginald Forrest, a 
counselor in the 
Office of Student 
Financial Aid, was known for 
his infectious smile and 
warm personality. 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. For more informa- 
tion about making a contri- 
bution, contact Gene Logan
