Congratulations 




CONGRATULATIONS on your graduation from the University of 
Maryland! This is a milestone that should bring great pride to you, 
your family and friends. I am certain that your time at the university 
has been filled with new ideas, friendships and opportunities. I hope 
that you have explored new areas and discovered new talents. The 
world is waiting for you to share them. 

As you move beyond the campus, I hope that you will remember 
the intellectual curiosity and drive that inspired your time here. 
Graduating does not mean that learning has come to an end. Instead, 
it means that you are now equipped to take charge of your own 
learning. 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 
have enriched our university's life and have helped it to climb to a 
new 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 advan- 
tage of being an alum. Stay involved with us and help new generations 
of students develop their futures. You can do this by returning to cam- 
pus often, starting with Maryland Day 2012, on April 28. 

You have my very best wishes for all your future plans. Make 
your mark. And stay in touch. Go Terps! 

Sincerely, 



Mc li^ >)

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND / 2011 Spring Commencement 




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 aca- 
demic 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, student marshals are senior 
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. 
Spring 2011 marshals are listed on page 76 of this booklet. 



2011 Spring Commencement I UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



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. Class gifts have included the bronze Testudo 
now sitting in front of McKeldin Library (Class of '33), the sundial on 
McKeldin Mall (Class of '6^) and the Henson Garden outside of the 
Stamp Student Union (Classes of '94 and '99). 

The 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 philanthropy, visit ■www.mdexcellence.innd.edu or 
call 301.405.7749 for more information.

speaker Biographies 



DYLAN G. REBOIS / UNIVERSITY MEDALIST 




Dylan Rebois was 13 when he read John 
McPhee's acclaimed book "The Control of 
Nature," about man's attempts to redirect 
a mighty river, contain a volcano and halt 
rockslides. The weighty book helped set into 
motion a productive — if sleepless — four 
years for Rebois at Maryland. 

A Silver Spring native and mechanical 
engineering major, Rebois feels that humans 
should use their knowledge to improve, 
rather than control, the world. He worked 
with fellow members of Engineers Without 
Borders to build a solar-powered water pump 
in Burkina Faso, conducted research on solar 
energy in Bahrain and constructed a reactor 
that extracts hydrogen from diesel fuel to 
enable cleaner-burning engines. 

He was a teaching assistant for a course 
he helped design, "Engineering in the 
Developing World," while working on brief- 
ing books about renewable energy as an 
intern at the Brookings Institution, the influ- 
ential think tank. He did all of this, and more, 
while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. 

"I have a very difficult time saying 'no,'" 
says the recipient of prestigious Marshall and 
Truman scholarships. "I always feel like I can 
squeeze in one more thing." 

Rebois also speaks of his family's vaca- 
tions fueling his passion for sustainability. 



They took ecotours before the term became 
popular, sailing to see whales in Baja, Calif., 
and the impact of tourism on the Virgin 
Islands' coral reefs. McPhee's book sat on the 
family's coffee table. 

He may travel far for his interests, but 
the campus also has benefitted from Rebois' 
efforts. He was key is preserving the uni- 
versity's last forest area — slated to be razed 
for maintenance facilities — by researching 
state conservation and development policy, 
and crafting messages picked up by local and 
national media. 

"He thinks deeply and critically about all 
discussions and . . . truth always supersedes 
pride," says Mark Stewart, campus sustain- 
ability manager. "He is extraordinarily 
humble, and he always has the greater good 
in mind." 

In September, Rebois begins a two-year, 
Marshall-sponsored master's program at 
Imperial College in London, where he'll 
study sustainable energy futures. He'll 
do the second year at the University of 
Cambridge, learning engineering for sustain- 
able development. 

"The combination is something I couldn't 
have gotten anywhere else. I'm excited," he 
says. "I'll try to use those weeks before I 
leave to catch up on sleep."

JONY. KATZUR / STUDENT SPEAKER 




Jon Katzur, a math and econoniics double 
major with a minor in computer science, has 
always dreamed of being an entrepreneur. 

A serial entrepreneur, he started an SAT 
tutoring company while in high school, 
growing the business to more than 50 clients. 
He hired other tutors and continued the 
business while at Maryland. Katzur says 
he found plenty of opportunities here to 
cultivate his interests. Running the service, 
he said, "taught me on a small scale a lot of 
lessons about running a business." 

A member of honor fraternity Omicron 
Delta Kappa, Katzur was also part of the 
Hinman CEOs program. The nation's first 
living and learning entrepreneurship commu- 
nity allowed him to brainstorm with aspiring 
business owners. "We worked on everything 
from T-shirt design to iPhone games," he says. 
"While we never found a breakthrough success, 
I loved every minute of it." 

He also worked with Hillel International 
to organize an alternative spring break trip 
to Tampa, Fla., in 2009 to deliver food and 
work on damaged homes. 



Katzur is excited about applying all he's 
learned to his new position at New York- 
based loiodata, where he interned last 
summer. His role will be to understand 
prospective customers needs and how they 
can use their data to improve their business. 
He is excited to combine his entrepreneurial 
skills with analytic knowledge gained from 
his studies. 

He recently started a blog to discuss the 
benefits of entrepreneurship. "Creating a 
business gives you the opportunity to make a 
difference in the world," he says, "by finding 
new ways to make the world a better place 
or simply creating jobs for people, allowing 
them to support their families." 

Katzur's just getting started on his long- 
term plan: "I know that my leadership and 
entrepreneurial activities at Maryland, as 
well as my passion and determination, will 
prepare me to eventually start my own suc- 
cessful company."

EUGENE L.ROBERTS JR. / HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 




Journalism Professor Emeritus Gene Roberts 
is one of the most influential and respected 
newspaper reporters and editors of the latter 
half of the 20th century. 

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author, 
who joined the Philip Merrill College of 
Journalism faculty in 1991, has dedicated his 
career to finding the truth, reporting it, writ- 
ing it and publishing it. 

A native of Goldsboro, N.C., Roberts 
reported for the Goldsboro News-Argus, 
southern Virginia's Virginian Pilot, The 
(Raleigh) News & Observer and the Detroit 
Free Press before joining The New York 
Times in 1965. While there, he served as one 
of the leading correspondents covering civil 
rights in the South, as Saigon bureau chief in 
1968, as national editor and, during a three- 
year leave from Maryland (1994-97), ^^ the 
paper's managing editor. 

He spent 18 years as managing editor of 
The Philadelphia Inquirer, which flourished 



under his leadership and won an extraordi- 
nary 17 Pulitzer Prizes. 

"He is fearless because he knows how to 
get it right and help reporters get it right," 
says Hodding Carter III, another celebrated 
journalist and former Knight Professor of 
Public Affairs Journalism at Maryland. "He 
believes journalism's mission is, like a great 
university's, finding truth and sharing it." 

Roberts co-authored with Atlanta 
Journal-Constitution Managing Editor Hank 
Klibanoff, "The Race Beat: The Press, the 
Civil Rights Struggle, and the Awakening 
of a Nation," which was awarded the 2007 
Pulitzer Prize in history. 

He is also a tireless fundraiser, indepen- 
dently bringing in an estimated $8.5 million 
for the college. As a professor emeritus, he 
continues to be a mentor to alumni, faculty 
and students.

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 repu- 
tation as one of the top public research 
institutions in the nation. It boasted 32 
programs in U.S. News& World Report's top 
10 rankings in 2010. Kiplinger's Personal 
Finance magazine ranked the university 
No. 5 among best values in public colleges. 
And The Wall Street Journal put Maryland 
as No. 8 on its list of top schools where 
employers like to recruit. 

Maryland netted a record $545 million 
in external research grants In fiscal 
2010, up $27 million from the previous 
year. It included $10 million from the 
National Science Foundation for faculty to 
develop softvs/are for airplane safety and 
cancer research; $5.1 million from the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture for research 
on new irrigation systems to help farmers 
conserve water; and $1.8 million from the 
American Cancer Society to raise prostate 
cancer awareness among local African 
American men. 



More than 7,000 people, including 1,500 
teachers, took courses this year in Chinese, 
Arabic, Japanese and Persian at the National 
Foreign Language Center, housed in the 
College of Arts and Humanities. The federal 
government provided the center's Startalk 
program with $15 million in funding in 2010 
to support these initiatives. 

A new partnership between the university 
and the National Cancer Institute is send- 
ing graduate students in physics and math 
to train alongside the nation's top cell biolo- 
gists and develop new tools in the fight 
against the disease. 

In another new partnership with the National 
Institute of Standards and Technology, the 
university is building a $128 million, world- 
class Physical Sciences Complex. It will 
house the university's physics and astronomy 
departments, as well as the interdisciplin- 
ary Institute for Physical Sciences and 
Technology and the Joint Quantum Institute. 



The university in December launched the 
Maryland Cybersecurity Center to confront 
increasing threats from cyberattacks. It will 
use a holistic approach to cybersecurity 
education, research and technology and 
will have commercial, national security and 
health care IT applications, as well as uses 
in the utility, telecommunications and bank-

OUR HISTORY & OUR FUTURE 

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. 

Founded in 1856 by a group of planters, the former Maryland 
Agricultural College required students to spend an hour a day hoeing 
or plowing on the college farm and to take 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. 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. 

Today, Maryland takes full advantage of 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 of 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 cUmate change, the economy, energy, homeland 
security and public health.

Our student body of 27,000 undergraduate students and 10,000 
graduate students comes to study with a faculty that ranks among 
the finest in the nation, with three Nobel laureates, five Pulitzer Prize 
winners and scores of Fulbright scholars. The quality of our students 
and the support of our alumni continue to grow. We received more 
than 28,000 applications for 4,000 first-year seats in Fall 2010. 
Accepted students who complete their academic journey join a rapidly 
increasing family of alumni who are proud to be called Terps. The 
University of Maryland Alumni Association has grown to more than 
35,000 dues-paying members since its inception in 1989. 

As a gateway to the world, the university has established more 
than 250 educational, research and economic relationships with 
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 Technology Commercialization, the university has 
secured more than 360 U.S. patents, licensed more than 515 
technologies and helped to create more than 59 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 Internet viruses. Companies served by Mtech sold 
more than $22.5 billion in goods and services over the last 25 years, 
more than 200 times the state's financial support. 

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 Terp 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.

THE ALUMNI 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 Hall of Fame induction 
ceremony takes place once every five years, with the last group of 
honorees being inducted in June 2010. The following 60 individuals

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 audiology, 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 9, 1841.

The University of Maryland conveys the doctor of veterinary medicine to approximately 
po students each year in a program that was instituted in igSo. Graduates receive a 
diploma containing the seals of both the University of Maryland and its partner ifistitution, 
Virginia Tech. 

The second type is the research doctorate representing prolonged periods of advanced 
study. A dissertation that usually accompanies the study is iyitended to contribute 
substantially to the body of knowledge on the subject. The most important of these, 
the doctor of philosophy, no longer has an implication of philosophy for its holder, hut 
represents advanced research in any of the major fields of knowledge. The University 
of Maryland awarded a Ph.D. for the first time in ipio.
