Excellence 



In 1603. Samuel de Champlain, geographer and explorer, set out on his first journey across the Atlantic Ocean. 
At the time, only a handful of Europeans had ever ventured to the northern shores of the new world. Before long, 
Champlain (1567-1635) found himself charting areas unknown to his counterparts in Europe, including the coast 
ol the island he named Lisle des Monts-desert. our home. 

Four hundred years later, students at the College of the Atlantic are still exploring territory on the frontiers of 
science, creativity and geopolitics. Whether composing a new sign language to help divers communicate 
underwater, writing a screenplay about heading out into the wide world to make one's fortune, tracing the 
vocalizations of Leach's Storm-petrels or mapping out a video vision of a vital national park in Kenya, students at 
the college consistently challenge themselves to open new doors. 

The college has been engaged in many other frontiers over the past year. Faculty members have published books 
and created music and video productions, often to national acclaim. Out on Great Duck Island, the school has 
partnered with Berkeley Intel Research Laboratory to create what has been called, "one of the most sophisticated 
tests of wireless sensor networks yet devised." In the underground burrows of Leach's storm-petrels, scientists 
and students from both institutions have installed remote sensing devices linked to satellites and the World Wide 
Web via a wireless network. This national and international contribution to field biology and conservation science 
goes far beyond monitoring the habits of an elusive seabird. It could be as revolutionary as binoculars. 

But. as always, the college's strongest offerings are its students. Year after _year, College of the Atlantic graduates 
prepare for their own voyage into the world by conceiving, creating and completing exceptional and 
comprehensive projects. 

In the following pages, we've highlighted some of these projects. It's been hard to choose just a handful. Those 
we left out are as engaging as those we included: each project completed last year was a compelling exploratory 
journey into excellence.

letter from the chair of the board 

Human Ecology has deep roots on Mount Desert Island. Generations of explorers, artists, scientists, year-round 
and summer residents, teachers and students have been drawn to the island's natural history and beauty. College 
of the Atlantic advances that legacy. 

On |une 30, 2003. Isabel Mancinelli was named the college's first Charles VV. Eliot Professor of Ecological 
Planning. Policy and Design. Charles Eliot (1859-1897) was one of landscape architecture's yisionary practitioners, 
the first to analyze landscapes as layers of cultural, economic and ecological systems, to deyise scientific methods 
for recording them and to implement political measures for conserving them. He was an environmentalist 50 years 
before the term was coined. 

Eliot had a special association with Mount Desert Island, dating from 1871 when the Eliot family spent its first 
summer on the island. As an undergraduate student at Harvard. Eliot and several friends formed the "Champlain 
Society" and spent their summers camping on Mount Desert Island, exploring and recording its natural resources. 
Each of these young men worked in a distinct branch of natural science: geology, ornithology, marine 
invertebrates, meteorology, entomology and ichthyology. The scientific publications and papers that resulted from 
their work form the first scientifically based, interdisciplinary natural resource inventory of the region. 

Isabel Mancinelli holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard University. Graduate School of Design. 
She worked for the North Atlantic Regional Office of the National Park Service for ten years as a park planner and 
was team captain of the planning team for the General Management Plan for Acadia National Park. She has been 
a member of the faculty at College of the Atlantic since 1992. She and her students have worked extensively with 
planning boards and comprehensive planning committees in almost all of the surrounding communities, with MDI 
Tomorrow and Acadia National Park. We are thrilled to have someone of her capacity serving as our first Eliot 
Professor. 

In the pages that follow we share with you the stories of a new generation of explorers — seniors at College of 
the Atlantic who. like Eliot, have learned to think across disciplines and to translate personal values into projects 
and institutions that bring human and natural communities together. As we recognize their accomplishments, we 
thank you. our loyal friends, for supporting their exploration and education with your vision and philanthropy.

letter from the president 

The spot where College of the Atlantic stands today is not very far from where Samuel de Champlain "stove the 
undersides" of his boat while mapping Mount Desert Island in 1604. Our intent is also exploration, discovering 
nen ways of understanding the world and, like Champlain, applying our knowledge to utility within the world. 
Often, this means encouraging students to repair the environmental damage done since Champlain's time. 

During 2003, the thirty-fourth year since College of the Atlantic was chartered, we have continued to build on 
our academic excellence, financial sustainability. and national reputation. 

New strategic partnerships have extended the college's reach and perspectives. The Eco League, formed by 
College of the Atlantic, Alaska Pacific University and Antioch, Green Mountain, Northland and Prescott colleges, 
promotes education for sustainability and exchanges across the nation. Students explore genetic maps and their 
functional consequences in partnership with the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, the lackson 
Laboratory, the University of Maine and Bates, Bowdoin and Colby colleges. The Union River Watershed 
Coalition, headquartered at the college and focused on a watershed of five hundred SQuare miles, engages twenty- 
five towns, schools, nonprofits, government agencies, and businesses in research, education, planning and 
outreach activities. 

Successful exploration of new vistas of human ecology requires both resources and leadership. For ten_years. Rich 
Borden tirelessly led the college to success as academic dean. Following his return to full-time teaching and 
research, we created a team to broaden and deepen academic leadership, appointing Karen Waldron as academic 
dean and three associate deans: Dave Feldman, for academic affairs; Ken Hill, for academic services and |ohn 
Anderson, for the graduate program. Also in 2003, social anthropologist David Camp joined the faculty and 
Isabel Mancinelli became the first Charles W. Eliot Professor of Ecological Planning, Policy and Design. 

I hope that^ou will take pleasure from_your support of College of the Atlantic and from the accomplishments of 
its students, faculty, and staff. You have been an essential partner in building this college of human ecology on 
the coast of Maine and sending its students out to explore the challenges and opportunities of the world of the 
twenty-first century.

The Cost of Tourism: Jennifer Lynn Atkinson '03 

If Mahahual Were Costa Maya . . . What Would the Fisherman Do? A Look at the Social Aspects of 
Conservation Planning and Tourism Development in Quintana Roo, Mexico 



When a cruise ship descends on its port of call, the arriving tourists can hardly be called explorers. They are 
covering known ground. But, as with the explorers of old, what they come upon is altered, irrevocably In her 
senior project, lennifer Atkinson of Boise. Idaho, explored the impact of cruise ship tourists by speaking directly 
to the inhabitants of Mahahual, a beachfront village in southern Quintana Roo, Mexico, positioned to be the 
epicenter of a new tourism industry. Written into the project (for which travel was funded by the Kathryn Davis 
International Advanced Studies Award), are plans to bring the research back to the community after Jennifer's 
2003 graduation. Says one Mahahual fisherman she interviewed, "We are evolving. . . from farmers to fishermen 
and from fishermen to tourism attendants. . . It's the turn that life deals. Like this we continue, like this." 

lennifer became involved in the project after receiving an Educational Travel Fund grant from COA to spend five 
months in the Yunnan Province of China looking at how residents were approaching issues of cultural conservation 
and sustainable development. She returned with many Questions, especially of ecotourism. She writes: "When I 
read about the Costa Maya Tourism Corridor Development Project as a sustainable development plan intended to 
conserve the coastal ecology of Southern Quintana Roo and better the Quality of life of regional populations, I 
thought, great! When I discovered that the first stage of development was the installation of a cruise ship pier, I 
became worried. When I showed up in Mahahual and found that the local community had been marginalized and 
that the social aspects of conservation planning had been neglected. I decided to document it."

Exploring the Known: Alana Ruth Beard '03 

Sign-Posts: Living on MDI 



Sometimes, the greatest unknown is what lies right before our eyes: the world we grew up in, a world 
that seems so familiar and yet is filled with so many deep mysteries. Alana Beard, born on Mount Desert 
Island, focused her senior project on her own home island, using photographs, reflections and oral 
histories to understand the island and the impact of its changes upon those who live here. "I hope the 
writing will reach people on a very basic, human level so that they are able to associate characters and 
aspects of this island with whatever place they call home." Alana writes in her introduction to the project. 
This volume, written just as she was setting out into the world, allowed Alana to explore the deep sense 
of place she found on MDI. As she says. "I used this project as an opportunity to deepen my connection 
to this place — a way to pay homage to the mountains, waves, trees and people that I have looked to 
for guidance, knowledge, forgiveness, solace and reflection over the past twenty years. " 





"Because I have so many interests - writing, photography, science, the island - this project became 
a collage of my favorite activities. Being able to design a project like that and put it all together 
would be hard to do in another school. When you have found one thing that you're going to focus 
on, the perspective of College of the Atlantic lets you see what you're interested in from many 
different ways, many points of view."

Diving In: E. Brooke Hartley '03 

Drawing Water 



When Brooke Hartley came to College of the Atlantic from Maryland Institute College of Art, she was looking for 
something deeper than art training, something that probed the very essence of experience. "How can an artist be 
clairvoyant if only taught to look at life through the eyes of an artist?" she asks in the narrative to her senior 
project, which is a collection of surrealistic drawings that she calls "Drawing Water." These images explore the 
details of water as a means for understanding "the subtle intricacies of life that we ignore and take for granted on 
a daily basis." 




"Purpose is not an object that you can set your mind to and create; it is a development that 
redefines itself at every moment in life. "

From Disease to Display: William Berkeley Kauffman '03 

Articulation and Display of a Pilot Whale Skeleton 



When a pilot whale repeatedly stranded itself on the shores of the Penobscot River in the summer of 2001, it 
caught the attention of thousands along the coast who were shocked and distressed to watch it die. Little did they 
realize that it would become immortalized in the hands of Berkeley Kauffman, whose senior project was the 
articulation — or reassembly — of its skeleton. Berkeley, who hails from San Francisco and transferred to the 
college in 2002 from Tulane University, heard about the stranding through his involvement with Allied Whale. 
Berkeley credits Toby Stevenson, who was part of the stranding response team, with the foresight to care for the 
bones, burying the delicate ones in manure to allow insects and bacteria to clean them off. "Without them, my 
project would never have happened." Berkeley writes. "Because Toby was worried about maintaining the delicate 
bones. I was able to produce a far more captivating skeleton." Berkeley not only put the bones back together for 
all to see, but he created a professional display that now stands in the Whale Museum on the pier in Bar Harbor. 




"/ came to CO A primarily because of Allied Whale. I knew that my interests lay in marine science. 
Now, I've learned how to learn. I know that I can figure out a way to do anything that I want to do. 
I have the confidence to try and the resilience to try again if I fail. "

Giving Something Back: Douglas Lerch '03 

The Creation of a Fair Trade Organization 



During the winter of 2002-2003, Doug Lerch of Fair Lawn, New lersey. spent three months studying in the 
highlands of Guatemala. Like many who have journeyed there, he was entranced by the beauty of the indigenous 
people, their faces, their gentleness, the splendor of their rainbow-colored garments. He was also appalled by 
their poverty. Before he returned to COA, Doug vowed to give something back. When he left the highlands, he 
carried a suitcase of weavings and an idea: he would start a business selling the woven work of his Guatemalan 
friends at fair market prices. The money would flow back to Guatemala. Doug's senior project was the business 
plan, product catalog and brochure of his new fair trade business. Before he graduated, his business was up and 
running, along with a website, www.mayanheart.org. "My project lives on beyond my senior project," he writes in 
his final project narrative. "I have my first order from Eden Rising and have located many other possible suppliers 
for the weavings. This means potentially steady consumers for the weavers of Guatemala, something they so 
desperately need." 




"/ am very grateful to College of the Atlantic for giving me the structure, freedom and confidence 
to pursue my goals and dreams. "

Into the Future: Hope Elizabeth Rowan '03 

Using Conservation to Manage Growth in the Union River Watershed: A Case Study of Mariaville 
and Otis 



It's not easy to explore the future. It's hard to consider today what factors may loom twenty years from now. Yet 
that is the task of planners in towns and cities across the globe, and sometimes with minimal tools. In her master's 
project for College of the Atlantic. Hope Rowan used the college's sophisticated Geographic Information System 
to predict the future of two rural towns on the Union River watershed just north of Ellsworth. By speaking with 
town officials of both Otis and Mariaville, and by gathering information about the regional economy, recent 
growth, endangered species, geology, and water availability. Hope has helped these towns see their future. Hope, 
who is originally from Wayland, Massachusetts, mapped out a vision of Otis and Mariaville twenty years hence. 
showing where development could occur, and what forms it might take, from suburban sprawl to conservation 
planning. 




"We're working with real people on real issues, and there's plenty of work out there to be done."

Mission Statement 

College of the Atlantic enriches the liberal arts tradition through a distinctive educational 
philosophy — human ecology. A human ecological perspective integrates knowledge from all academic 
disciplines and from personal experience to investigate — and ultimately improve — the relationships between 
human beings and our social and natural communities. The human ecological perspective guides all aspects ol 
education, research, activism, and interactions among the college's students, faculty, staff, and trustees. The 
College of the Atlantic community encourages, prepares, and expects students to gain the expertise, breadth, 
values, and practical experience necessary to achieve individual fulfillment and to help solve problems that 
challenge communities everywhere. 



Vision Statement 

The faculty, students, trustees, staff and alumni of College of the Atlantic envision a world where people value 
creativity, intellectual achievement, and the diversity of nature and human cultures. With respect and 
compassion, individuals will construct meaningful lives for themselves, gain appreciation for the relationships 
among all forms of life and safeguard the heritage of future generations.
