and many doors, too. You have made friends and found mentors who will continue to add 
value to your life in remarkable ways.

accomplishments as scholars, artists, athletes and leaders. You have enriched our university's 
life and have helped Maryland climb to higher levels of distinction. We welcome you into the 
alumni family, a truly special group. 

I hope that you will stay connected to us and take full advantage of the benefits 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 2010 on April 24.

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Talia Lewis 



Talia Lewis came to Maryland planning to lay the foundation to become a pedi- 
atric oncologist. She leaves with an even more ambitious goal: tackling health- 
care inequities on a global scale. 
She wasn't interested in an undergraduate degree in science, so with help 
from the university's Individual Studies program, Lewis created a bachelor's in health, culture 
and inequality studies. The Philip Merrill Presidential Scholar and University Honors student 
also earned a reputation as a passionate voice for people who can't advocate for themselves. 

"The overarching theme of my experience at Maryland is that it really turned me on to 
social justice issues," she says. 

Lewis attended a private, Jewish day school in a quiet Philadelphia suburb. She was attracted 
to Maryland because of its diversity: "I found that I had so much to learn from others." 

In that spirit, she led an alternative spring break trip to Los Angeles. There, she and 15 peers 
volunteered at a homeless shelter and with an after-school program for at-risk youth. She also 
learned about family medicine and inner-city clinic work by shadowing a family doctor in Bal- 
timore. Her senior thesis is on organ trafficking. 

"I found out about it through an anthropology course," she says. "I am synthesizing the 
research I gathered in order to construct a public health approach ... to develop solutions." 

Her eclectic mix of courses, such as organic chemistry and gender and globalization, led 
Lewis to conduct research in a Department of Animal and Avian Science lab and round out her 
experience as a founder of the Women's Jewish Alliance at Maryland. The student group held 
a conversation with Muslim women this fall to foster understanding and connect around their 
similarities. 

Praised for her contagious energy, Lewis plans to study medicine somewhere that has a focus 
on international health and/or social justice. Her goal is to become a family doctor for under- 
served communities in America and abroad. 

"Talia has a genuine desire ... to find ways to make a difference in the world," says Joan Bur- 
ton, Individual Studies director.

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 



James F. Pitts knows the tactical and business sides of defense technology. As a successful 
engineer, he holds several patents for electronic warfare techniques. As corporate vice 
president and president of Electronic Systems at Northrop Grumman Corp., he works with 
the Department of Defense and other federal agencies to develop equipment and systems 
for airspace management, navigation and communications as well as precision weapons. 

He's spent his career at Northrop's Electronic Systems, which earns nearly $7 billion in annual 
sales and has 22,000 employees in the United States and 19 other countries. The sector recendy 
announced its funding of a fellowship for doctoral students in the A. James Clark School 
of Engineering. 

Pitts graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with his bachelor's in engineering science 
in 1973, when he joined Baltimore-based Northrop Grumman 's electronic warfare systems engi- 
neering sector, and returned four years later to earn his master's degree in electrical engineering. 

He moved up the ranks at the company and was promoted to deputy general manager for 
the systems development and engineering division in 1990 and vice president of avionics systems 
the following year, making him responsible for product development and production for control 
radars on the F-16, F-22, B-1B and C-130 aircraft. 

In 2001, Pitts was assigned to lead the Aerospace Division, where he dealt primarily with radar 
systems and most of the U.S. Army business within the sector. He was named to his current 
position in October 2005. 

Pitts was named the Engineer of the Year in 2002 by the University of Maryland, Baltimore 
County's College of Engineering and Information Technology, and he serves as chairman of the 
Maryland Business Roundtable for Education and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County 
Board of Directors. 

He previously served on the University of Maryland Board of Visitors and as vice chairman 
of the University of Maryland Medical System. Pitts has also sat on the Board of Trustees for the 
Maryland Science Center, the Governor's Workforce Investment Board and the Board of 
Directors for the United Way of Central Maryland. 

A native of Baltimore, Pitts and his wife, Kay, have three children and live in Pasadena, Md.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



Maryland's Momentum 

Expanding its reputation among the best 
universities in the nation, Maryland boasted 
29 programs in U.S. News & World Report's 
top 10 rankings in 2009. It was also No. 1 
that year among the top 25 public univer- 
sities m graduating African Americans, 
according to Diverse Issues in Higher Education 
Kiplinger's Personal Finance ranked Maryland 
No. 9 among best values in public 
higher education. 

We draw many of the best and brightest stu- 
dents from Maryland and across the country. 
Tins year, more than 28.000 students applied 
for 4,000 first-year seats. 

Our faculty regularly earns national and 
international recognition for its excellence. 
Maryland currently has three Nobel laure- 
ates, seven Pulitzer Prize recipients and 
more than 40 members of the most 
prestigious national academies. 



Maryland netted more than $518 million 
in external research grants in fiscal year 
2009, an all-time high. Among them was 
up to $93 million for a Cooperative Insti- 
tute for Climate and Satellites, a nationwide 
consortium led by Maryland and supported 
by the National Oceanic and Atmosphenc 
Adnnnistration. 

Great Expectations, The Campaign for 
Maryland has raised more than $671 million. 
A priority goal of the $1 billion campaign 
is to raise more than $250 million for 
student scholarships. 

The university, with its more than 7,501) 
trees, was designated an arboretum and 
botanical garden by the American Public 
Gardens Association and was the first cam- 
pus in Maryland to be recognized as a Tree 
( lampus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. 
M Square Research Park continued to 



grow, with the dedication in April of the 
Intelligence Advanced Research Projects 
Activity, the U.S. government's intelligence 
research headquarters. Other agencies com- 
ing to M Square to work with university 
researchers include the National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration's new National 
Weather and Environmental Prediction Cen- 
ter and the Food and Drug Administration. 

Construction is nearly complete at the 
John S. and James K. Knight Hall, the new 
home of the Philip Merrill College of Jour- 
nalism. It opens in January. The $30 million 
building will be the first "green" building 
on campus and will feature state-of-the-art 
classrooms, news laboratory spaces and 
professional training centers.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Continuing Commitment 
to Excellence 

From its pre-Civil War roots 
as the state's first agricultural 
college and one of America's 
original land-grant institutions, 
the University of Maryland has 
emerged as a public research 
university of national stature, 
highly regarded for its broad 
base of excellence in teaching 
and research. 

Maryland takes full advantage 
of the umque 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 of the most critical issues 
of our day. 

Our student body of 26,500 
undergraduate students and 10,500 
graduate students comes to study 



with a faculty that ranks among 
the finest in the nation, with three 
Nobel laureates, seven Pulitzer 
Prize winners and scores of 
Fulbright scholars. 

The university also continues 
to move forward in the quality 
of our students and the support 
of our faithful alumni. Freshmen 
admission is increasingly com- 
petitive. We received more than 
28,000 applications for 4,000 first- 
year seats in Fall 2009. Accepted 
students who complete their 
academic journey join a rapidly 
increasing family of alumni who 
are proud to be called Terps. 
University of Maryland Alumni 
Association membership has 
grown to more than 37,000 
dues-paying members since its 
inception in 1989. 

There are 13 schools and 
colleges within the University 



of Maryland. Seven of these 
units — the Smith School of 
Business, the College of 
Education, the Clark School of 
Engineering, the Philip Merrill 
College of Journalism, the Col- 
lege of Computer, Mathematical 
and Physical Sciences, the College 
of Information Studies and the 
School of Public Policy — have 
been recognized by their peers 
and in various rankings as among 
the 25 best in the nation. The 
breadth of this excellence is a 
source of pride for students, fac- 
ulty and staff and is endorsement 
for the university's flagship status 
among the state's institutions of 
higher education. 

The university's location 
near the center of federal policy- 
making and international political 
and economic activity enables it 
to play an active role in research 
and analysis of public policy. 

Our academic community is 
addressing today's most pressing 
scientific and societal challenges, 
such as climate change, the econ- 
omy, energy, homeland security 
and public health. University 
research brought in more than 
$518 million in external grants 
and contracts in fiscal year 
2009, including support for 
a Cooperative Institute for 
Climate and Satellites and a 
brain imaging center. 

As a gateway to the world, 
the university has established more 
than 200 educational, research 
and economic relationships with 



/ERSITV OF MARYLAND

people and institutions in countries 
such as China, India. Brazil. Israel 
and the United Arab Emirates. 

The Maryland Technology 
Enterprise Institute, or Mtech; 
the University of Maryland Small 
Business Development Network; 
and the Dingman Center for 
Entrepreneurship nurture a culture 
of thriving entrepreneurship at the 
university. They are leading efforts 
to educate and assist business start- 
ups, create technology ventures 
and connect Maryland companies 
with university resources to help 
them succeed. 

Through its Office of Tech- 
nology Commercialization, the 
university has secured more than 
300 U.S. patents, licensed more 
than 900 technologies and helped 
to create more than 50 high-tech 
start-up companies. Among them 
are award-winning firms that 
create alternative energy solutions, 
national security tools and data 
systems to protect against Inter- 
net viruses. Companies served by 
Mtech sold $19.7 billion in goods 
and services over the last 25 years, 
more than 201) times the state's 
financial support. 

Maryland is one ot the 
research universities in the presti- 
gious 61 -member Association of 
American Universities and the only 
public insntution in the Maryland- 
D.C. area with membership in the 
nation's most distinguished honor 
society. Phi Beta Kappa. 



History 

The University of Maryland was 
founded in 1807 in Baltimore 
as a faculty-owned College ot 
Medicine. The medical school 
was considered one of the top 
schools in the country, attracting 
notable professors and lecturers 
from throughout the world. In 
its beginning, tuition cost $140, 
grades were sent home weekly to 
parents, and students could obtain 
room and board for $300 annually. 

Five years later, the growing 
institution was renamed the 
University of Maryland. Despite 
the name, the university was not 
considered a state institution, as 
it was still owned and operated 
by faculty. The Baltimore College 
of Dental Surgery, the first dental 
school in the world, became a 
part of the university in 1840, 
awarding the country's first 
Doctor of Dental Surgery 
degree in 1841. 

In 1859, the Maryland 
Agricultural College, which 
would evolve into the University 
of Maryland. College Park, was 
opened under a charter secured 
by a group of Maryland planters 
in 1856. In addition to spend- 
ing one hour each day hoeing 
or plowing on the college farm, 
students took a broad range of 
courses in ancient and modern 
languages, natural sciences, English 
and mathematics. After a disastrous 
fire on campus in 1912, the state 
acquired the college and rebuilt it. 



In 1920, the state legisla- 
ture combined the College Park 
institution with the professional 
schools in Baltimore to form an 
expanded University of Maryland. 
The entity eventually grew to 
include campuses in Baltimore 
County, on the Eastern Shore 
and at University College, a 
continuing education institution. 

The following decades 
saw the increasing growth of 
student population, excellence 
in programs and curricula and 
the burgeoning of the University 
of Maryland, College Park 
into a nationally recognized 
research institution. 

July 1, 1988, marked the 
dawn of a new era in higher 
education in the state of Maryland, 
as the five components of the 
university were merged with 
six other state universities and col- 
leges to form the University Sys- 
tem of Maryland and College Park 
secured its flagship status 
with a mandate to become one 
of the preeminent research 
universities in the nation. 

The Alumni Association 

With alumni clubs from Miami 
to Taipei, Taiwan, the alumni 
association strives to keep 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 Terp 
magazine help keep alumni 



connected to the university and 
each other. All graduating seniors 
and successful master's and doc- 
toral candidates receive a one-year 
free membership in the Maryland 
Alumni Association. 

Hall of Fame 

The alumni association's Hall of 
Fame honors university graduates 
who have brought honor to their 
alma mater through distinguished 
careers in a variety of disciplines. 
The following 51 individuals have

Basketball Hall of Fame member 

The Hall of Fame induction 
ceremony takes place once every 
five years. The last group of hon- 
orees was inducted in June 2005. 

Golden Terps 

The university has begun a new 
tradition to honor its 50-year 
alumni by creating a place for 
them in the spring commence- 
ment ceremony. Wearing gold 
robes trimmed in black and black 
tarns, they follow the student mar- 
shals in the processional and sit 
with them. 

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 grad- 
uates parade. It was a gala 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 audi- 
ence cheered and threw flowers, 
the graduates came forward to col- 
lect 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 
m 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. 

Student Marshals 

Elected through a nomination 
process, student marshals are senior 
leaders who play an important 
role in the graduation ceremony. 
Student marshals assist in organizing 
the thousands of graduates, leading 
them smoothly through the 
commencement procession. They 
also supply extra caps and hoods 
and bobby pins to keep headwear 
secure. Fall 20119 marshals are listed 
on page 72 of this booklet. 

All-Student Gift 

In recognition of the philanthropic 
spirit of Maryland students, the 
former Senior Class Gift effort has 
evolved to an All-Student Giving 
effort at the university. Tradi- 
tionally, class gifts have included 
items, such as the bronze Testudo 
now sitting in front of McKeldm 
Library (Class of '33), sundial on 
McKeldm Mall (Class of '65) or 
the Henson Garden outside of 
the Stamp Student Union (Classes 
of '94 and '99). The new All-Stu- 
dent initiative encourages Terps to 
financially support the causes 
they believe in most — from the 
university's community outreach 
and partnerships to student groups 
conducting discovery and research 
to solve tomorrow's complex 
global issues. 

If you would like to be a 
part of this tradition of philan- 
thropy, visit www.mdexcellence.

for more information. 



Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the 
successful completion of a 
course of study. The University 
of Maryland offers 99 bachelor's 
degrees, 108 master's degrees and 
85 doctoral degrees. 

The Doctoral Degree 

The doctoral degree represents 
the most advanced earned degree 
conferred by American institu- 
tions. 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 com- 
pletion of original research by 
the student. The University of 
Maryland, at the professional 
school in Baltimore, awarded 
the first two dental degrees on 
March 9, 1841. 

The University of Maryland 
conveys the Doctor of Veterinary 
Medicine to approximately 90 
students each year in a program 
that was instituted in 1980. 
Graduates receive a diploma 
containing the seals of both the 
University of Maryland and its 
partner institution, the Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute and 
State University. 

The second type is the 
research doctorate representing 
prolonged periods of advanced 
study. A dissertation that usually 



ai i ompanies the study is intended 
to contribute substantially to the 
body of knowledge on the subject. 
The most important of these, the 
Doctor of Philosophy, no longer 
has .m implication of philosophy 
for its holder, but represents 
advanced research in any of the 
major fields of knowledge. It was 
first awarded in the United States 
in 1861 by Yale University. The 
University of Maryland awarded 
a Ph.D. for the first time in 1920. 

The Master's Degree 

The master's degree is an academic 
honor bestowed upon students 
who have successfully completed 
work beyond the baccalaureate. 
A thesis and an oral exami- 
nation are usually required. In 
1920, the University of Maryland 
awarded its first Master of Arts and 
Master of Science degrees in fields 
other than agriculture. 

The Bachelor's Degree 

The bachelor's degree represents 
the completion of a four-year 
course of college-level study 
and is the oldest academic degree 
awarded by American institutions 
of higher learning. It was first 
conferred in America in 1642 
on the first nine graduates of 
Harvard College. Maryland 
Agriculture College, which 
later became the University of 
Maryland, College Park, awarded 
its first Bachelor of Arts and 
Bachelor of Science degrees 
in 1862.
