This is a privilege and a profound responsibility. Society's advancement 
will depend upon your knowledge and your leadership. I am confident 
that you have stretched your capacities in order to meet these challenges. 

As you leave us, you should take with you the pride we all feel in 
your accomplishments as scholars, artists, athletes and leaders. You

level of distinction. We welcome you into the alumni family, a truly 
special group. 

I hope that you stay connected to the university and take full 
advantage of being an alum. Stay involved with us and help new 
generations of students develop their futures. You can do this by 
returning to campus often, starting with Maryland Day 2012, on 
April 28. 

You have my very best wishes for all your future plans. Make

CUSTOMS OF COMMENCEMENT 

Early commencement ceremonies at the University of Maryland 
were marked with great fanfare and celebration. The faculty gave 
huge banquets for the graduates the night before the event. The 
following morning, crowds gathered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occasion, attracting not only friends and 
relatives, but also the fashionable elite of the day. At the ceremony, 
prayers were recited, speeches were made and honorary degrees were 
awarded to distinguished figures from across the country. Finally, as 
the audience cheered and threw flowers, the graduates came forward 
to collect their Latin-inscribed degrees.

ACADEMIC COSTUME 

The black caps and gowns worn by the students and faculty in the 
academic procession have been the traditional costume of scholars 
since the Middle Ages. The ordinary dress of the scholar, whether 
student or teacher, was similar to that of a cleric. Caps and gowns 
were probably worn to keep students warm in unheated buildings. 
Many medieval scholars were tonsured, like monks, and hoods served 
to cover their shaved heads until the skullcap later took its place. Even 
after the Civil War, most students at American universities wore caps 
and gowns daily while in residence. These varied in design until the 
American Intercollegiate Commission standardized them in 1894. At 
that time it was decided that all robes would be black. Colors on the 
trim of the gown were also standardized to indicate the scholar's 
academic discipline. 

The tassel may also be colored to represent an academic discipline 
or it may be black. Officially, the tassel is permitted "to lie where 
it will" on the mortarboard. However, numerous institutions have 
adopted the practice of having degree candidates wear the tassel on 
the right front side at the start of the commencement ceremony and 
then shift them to the left side after degrees are awarded. 

SENIOR MARSHALS 

Elected through a nomination process, senior marshals are leaders 
who play an important role in the graduation ceremony. They assist 
in organizing the thousands of graduates, leading them smoothly 
through the commencement procession. They also supply extra 
caps and hoods, as well as bobby pins to keep headwear secure. 
Winter 2011 marshals are listed on page 49 of this booklet.

Speaker Biographies 



KEVIN MATUSZAK / STUDENT SPEAKER 




kevin matuszak can't pick just one 
highlight of his time at Maryland. Maybe 
it was researching prison reform with his 
Gemstone team. He also loved his month 
in Italy studying the ruins of the ancient 
Roman Empire. And he put his finance 
education to work while interning at an 
investment firm. 

Coming from a "very homogenous" 
all-male private school, he took advantage 
of the exploratory nature of college, and 
Maryland's encouraging environment to 
broaden his frame of reference. "It's good to 
connect with people different from you," he 
says. 

In the Gemstone Peace in Prisons project, 
he and peers examined the effectiveness of 
prison programming on violent attitudes and 
beliefs. Matuszak found himself chatting 
comfortably with a former gang member 
about Terp basketball. 

"This was someone you would never see 
yourself with," says Matuszak. "When you 
have an experience like that, there's this 
commonality you find." 

He began to stretch in other ways. He- 
arrived at Maryland as a biology pre-med 
major because he thought being a doctor was 



a respectable career. Then, he says, "I started 
thinking that I hated what I was doing." 

Matuszak had taken a few accounting 
classes he thought would help with hospital 
management. He found he liked them more 
than the biology and organic chemistry 
courses, and he switched majors in the fall of 
his junior year. The late change "was hectic, 
but definitely worth it," he says. 

At his internship with Pinnacle Advisory 
Group in Columbia, Md., an investment 
firm, he enthusiastically pored over research 
reports left in a box for him by colleagues. "I 
could make connections between what I was 
learning at Maryland, what I was reading 
and what happens in the markets every day." 

Matuszak will begin working in the 
audit division of PricewaterhouseCoopers in 
Baltimore in January. Though he values what 
shaped his career path, he wishes that he 
discovered it a bit sooner. 

"I should've listened to myself, trusted 
myself more," he says and offers some advice 
to students and fellow graduates: 

"Do something that you like and not 
necessarily something that has value put 
on it by other people." 



10 2011 Winter Commencement I UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



RICHARD R. "RICKY" ARNOLD II M.S. '92 / COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 




INSPIRED BY CHILDHOOD MI MORHS ot 

American spacewalks and ocean explorer 
Jacques Cousteau, Richard R. "Ricky" 
.Arnold 11 M.S. '92 has explored both 
underwater and space. 

A mission specialist with NASA, 
the Bowie native earned a bachelor's in 
accounting from Frostburg State University 
in 1985, because he was "good with numbers." 
Halfway through the program, however, 
he realized that he preferred his science 
electives. 

Two years later, he began working as an 
oceanographic technician at the United States 
Naval Academy. He went on to teach science 
at lohn Hanson Middle School in Waldorf, 
Md. While there, he earned a master's degree 
through Maryland's marine, estuarine and 
environmental sciences program. Arnold 
conducted research in rock strata dating at 
the Horn Point Environmental Laboratory in 
Cambridge, Md. He also spent time at the 
Cape Cod National Seashore and aboard a 
training/oceanographie vessel. 

A year after graduation, Arnold joined 
the faculty at the Casablanca American 
School in Morocco to teach college prepatory 
biology and marine environmental science. 
In 1996, he and his family moved to Riyadh, 



Saudi Arabia, where he taught middle and 
high school science and served as department 
chair at the American International School. 
While there, he learned of NASA's search for 
professional classroom teachers. 

By then, he'd taught middle school math 
and science in West Papua, Indonesia, and 
at the American International School of 
Bucharest in Romania. 

He was accepted by NASA in 2004. 
Arnold completed aquanaut training and 
spent 10 days on the Extreme Environment 
Mission Objectives project at Aquarius, the 
world's only undersea laboratory. The crew 
conducted experiments and operations in a 
simulated lunar outpost. 

During a 14-day mission aboard the 
shuttle Discovery in March 2009, he 
completed two space walks to help install 
solar panels and a truss element at the 
International Space Station. 

He now keeps his feet on the ground in 
Houston as training lead for extravehicular 
activity. While he'd love to go back into space, 
"I've been really fortunate already." 

Arnold says his Maryland experience was 
key to his full life. "I was well-prepared to do 
all of the different things that I've done." 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 20ii Winter Commencement 11 



Maryland's Momentum 



Nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit in students and faculty. Forging 
powerful federal partnerships to address world concerns. Creating 
artistic experiences to enrich the community. Members of the university 
community do this and more. Fear the Turtle! 



Maryland continues to strengthen its 
reputation as one of the top public research 
institutions nationally and internationally. It 
boasted 30 programs in U.S. News & World 
Report's top 10 rankings in 2011 and placed 
38th in the 2011 Academic Ranking of World 
Universities. 

Maryland netted $472 million in external 
research grants in fiscal 2011 The university 
has brought in more than $1.5 billion over 
the past three years, including funding for 
collaborative research in environmental 
science, air traffic management and space 
exploration. 

The university is leading a new national effort 
to develop the scientific knowledge needed 
to implement a series of food safety metrics- 
involving water, environment, handling and 
supply chain variables— for leafy greens and 
tomatoes The Specialty Crop Research 
Initiative joins Maryland researchers with 
scientists at six other universities and two 
federal agencies to help prevent food-borne 



illnesses. The three-year project is funded 
by an almost $5.4 million grant from the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture and similar 
funding from the produce industry. 

A landmark gift of $10 million from Baltimore 
developer and philanthropist Edward St. John 
'61 will help create a world-class learning and 
teaching space at the university: the Edward 
St. John Learning and Teaching Center The 
building will be located on McKeldin Mall 
and will incorporate the facade of historic 
Holzapfel Hall. When completed, more than 
a third of the undergraduate student body 
will attend classes there daily. 

Working toward its strategic priority of 
increasing Maryland's international reach 

the university has formed more than 
300 partnerships with universities and 
governments overseas. Faculty hail from 
more than 130 countries, and Maryland is 
consistently named among the top 25 
universities welcoming international students, 
with 134 countries being represented. 



Great Expectations, The Campaign for 
Maryland is shooting to break the $900 
million mark by the end of the year A 

priority of the $1 billion campaign is to raise 
more than $250 million for scholarships. 

Maryland students won the U.S. 
Department of Energy's 2011 Solar 
Decathlon by planning and building an 
innovative solar-powered house. Their 
entry, Watershed, won the international 
contest by combining energy efficiency, 
cost-effectiveness and attractiveness. 

Maryland astronomers, led by Jessica 
Sunshine, are part of a group awarded $3 
million from NASA to compete for final 
selection as an upcoming mission in the 

agency's Discovery Program. If approved, 
their Comet Hopper project would launch in 
2016, sending a vehicle that would "hop"— 
landing multiple times— on a comet to 
collect data from the soil and atmosphere.

OUR HISTORY & OUR FUTURE 

From it^ pre-Civil Wai roots as the state's first agricultural college 
and one ol America's original land-grant institutions, the University 
ol Maryland has emerged .is .1 public resean li university "l national 
stature, highly regarded for its broad base ol excellence in teaching 
and research. 

Founded in 1856 bj a group of planters, the formei Maryland 
\ ",i u ultural College required students to spend an hour a 1l.1v hoeing 
or plowing on the college l.irm and to take courses in ancient and 
modern languages, natural sciences, I nglish and mathematics. After a 
disastrous fire on campus in 1912, the state acquired the 1 ollege and 
rebuilt it. The legislature in 1988 combined its institutions of higher 
education to form the University System of Maryland, and the 
growing College Park campus was named its flagship. 

Tod. iv, Marvland takes full advantage ot the unique resources of 
the nation's capital, attracting top students and faculty; enriching 
the economic, social and cultural life of the state; and engaging the 
global community to address some ot the most critical issues of our 
day. Within the university's 12 schools and colleges, our academic 
community is addressing today's most pressing scientific and societal 
challenges, such as climate change, the economy, energy, homeland 
security and public health. 









UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 2011 Winter Commencement 13

business start-ups, create technology ventures and connect Maryland 
companies with university resources to help them succeed. Through 
its Office of Technology Commercialization, the university has 
secured more than 440 U.S. patents, licensed more than 565 
technologies and helped to create 60 high-tech startup companies. 
Among them are award-winning firms that create alternative energy 
solutions, national security tools and data systems to protect against 
Internet viruses. Companies served by Mtech sold more than $25.7 
billion in goods and services over the last 25 years. 

Maryland is part of the prestigious 63-member Association 
of American Universities and the only public institution in 
the Maryland-D.C. area with membership in the nation's most 
distinguished honor society, Phi Beta Kappa. 

THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

With alumni clubs from Miami to Taipei, Taiwan, the alumni 
association strives to maintain and strengthen ties between the 
university and its graduates. Member events such as pre-game parties, 
bull roasts, picnics, golf tournaments, dinner cruises and subscriptions 
to Tcrp magazine help keep alumni connected to the university 
and each other. All graduating seniors and successful master's and 
doctoral candidates receive a one-year free membership in the 
Maryland Alumni Association.

Doctoral Degrees 



The doctoral degree is the most advanced earned degree conferred by American institutions. 
There are two distinct types: the practitioner's degree and the research degree. The first 
type represents advanced training for the practice of various professions, principally doctor 
of medicine, juris doctor, doctor of pharmacy and doctor of veterinary medicine. These 
degrees do not involve the completion of original research by the student. The University of 
Maryland, at the professional school in Baltimore, awarded the first two dental degrees on 
March a, 184.1.
