Spring Commencement" 



MAY 20-21, 2012 / UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



The May 2012 class roster comprises degree candidates from the graduate and undergraduate programs at the University of Maryland, 
College Park. As final action cannot always be taken for candidates by the time this program is printed, the list of candidates here is tentative. The 
university reserves the right to withdraw or add names. Diplomas (for other than doctoral degrees) will be mailed by the Office of the Registrar. 



Congratulations 




congratulations on your graduation from the university! This is a 
milestone that should bring great pride to you, your family and friends. 

I am certain that your time at the University of Maryland has 
been filled with new ideas, friendships and opportunities. As presi- 
dent of this great university, I want to express my 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 you will remember the 
intellectual curiosity and drive that inspired your time here. Graduating 
does not mean that learning has come to an end. 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. 

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 the 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 
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 2013, on 
April 27. 

You have my very best wishes for all your future plans. Make 
your mark. But wherever your path takes you, please remember 
that you will always be a TERR I hope you will always stay in touch. 
Go Terps! 

Sincerely, 

OJc ft- 5 *^— 

Wallace D. Loh, President 



2 2012 Spring Commencement I UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




on behalf of the University of Maryland Alumni Association, I'm 
excited to congratulate you on attaining this academic milestone. 

Today, when you reach for your diploma, you will receive a torch — the 
legacy of excellence Maryland alumni have carried for more than 150 years. 
Hold it high, displaying your Terrapin pride for all to see. 

It's my hope that in the years to come you'll shine your light on your 
alma mater by sharing your newfound expertise and ideas. In turn, 
Maryland will continue to educate the country's brightest students, pursue 
cutting-edge research, explore the arts and defend our athletic titles — we'll 
always make you proud to be a Terp. 

Along with this commitment, the alumni association is pleased to give 
you a complimentary one-year association membership as a graduation gift. 
Alumni association membership provides instant access to: 

Social and professional networking events at the Samuel Riggs IV 
Alumni Center and across the country with our alumni clubs and 
chapters 

Discounts on products and services through quality companies like 
Ford and GEICO 

Terp magazine, connecting alumni with the university. 
Most importantly, it demonstrates your dedication to Maryland and 
future Terrapins following in your footsteps. 

Best of luck to you! And thank you for displaying your Maryland 
spirit as you take your place in our alumni family. Although you may no 
longer be a student, the traditions live on — you're a Terp for life! 

Sincerely,

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND / 2012 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 2012 marshals are listed on page 77 of this booklet. 



ion Spring Commencement I UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



CARAPACE CHALLENGE 

Since 1910, almost every Maryland class has given the university a 
symbol to honor its graduation and continue the legacy of student 
giving — the bronze Testudo in front of McKeldin Library the sundial 
on the Mall and the Henson Garden, to name a few. This tradition of 
philanthropy has evolved into the Carapace Challenge. This initiative 
encourages students to financially support the causes they believe in 
most — from the university's community outreach and partnerships to 
student groups conducting research to solve tomorrow's global issues. 

Thank you to those students who have continued the tradition and 
provided an example for future generations. 

Commencement is not the end of being a Terp. It's just the 
beginning. 

For more information, contact Alyson Goff, coordinator of student 
philanthropy at agoffi@umd.edu.

Speaker Biographies 



HEUNGKOOK"HK" STEPHENS / STUDENT SPEAKER 




Heungkook "HK" Stephens wants to be 
known for channeling his compassion and 
talents to improve the lives of others. And 
maybe for his moves on the dance floor. 

As a civil engineering major, Stephens 
helped Engineers Without Borders provide 
a sustainable water source in Brazil and 
a water chlorination system in Peru. He 
directs a youth ministry and, before coming 
to Maryland, spent a month in Bangladesh 
teaching character education. 

"It was in Bangladesh where I experienced 
the great amount of good an engineer could 
provide for a developing community/' he 
says. "During that year I also began to 
understand how helping others took more 
than technical expertise." 

Stephens has that expertise, and he has 
heart, says Alan P. Santos, director of stu- 
dent services in the civil and environmental 
engineering department and Stephens' aca- 
demic adviser. 

"HK is committed to doing something 
with his degree other than doing well 
financially," he says. "His passion is doing 
something good." 



He's also an avid dance fan. He discovered 
his skills during a middle-school quest to 
look cool, and that led to his earning a spot 
on the university's Dynamic Dance Team 
and then in the competitive Culture Shock 
D.C. troupe. Stephens also was attracted by 
the group's mentoring program. 

He juggled that with his courseload, an 
internship with the Silver Spring engineer- 
ing firm Charles P. Johnson & Associates 
and undergraduate water treatment research. 
Stephens, 22, also is a youth group program 
coordinator with his wife, Jin Soon. He loves 
his full life, but looks forward to a change of 
pace after graduation. 

"I really miss my friends from freshman 
and sophomore years," he says. "It's hard to 
get together. I've built a reputation for being 
the busy one." 

The fourth Terp in a family of five, Stephens 
will stick with Maryland for graduate school. 
He plans to study the advanced detection and 
deactivation of waterborne pathogens. 

"I'm sure he's enjoying his college life," 
Santos says. "He's also preparing for greater 
things." 



10 2012 Spring Commencement I UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



JENNY WANG / UNIVERSITY MEDALIST 




Jenny Wang came to Maryland with a lot 
of energy and interests — and found just the 
right outlet for them all at Maryland. 

She double majored in unrelated disci- 
plines, served as a teaching assistant and 
helped start an undergraduate research 
journal. She also volunteered in a local 
emergency room and organized community 
service events. 

"My attention span is kind of short," she 
jokes. "I get interested in a lot of things." 

Wang earned 40 credits before becoming 
a Terp, and she kept up that academic pace 
on campus. She maintained a 4.0 GPA as 
she completed degrees in physiology and 
neurobiology and in English language and 
literature. 

"Jenny has clearly been recognized for her 
superior academic performance and strong 
career trajectory over the years, but I am 
regularly amazed at how much this young 
woman has accomplished," says Stephen M. 
Roth, associate professor of kinesiology. He is 
also the director of the Functional Genomics 
Laboratory, where Wang researched the 
effect of long-term exercise on telomere 
length, or the protective caps on the ends of 
chromosomes. 



As a result of that work, she co-wrote one 
paper appearing in the Journal of Gerontology: 
Biological Sciences and another submitted to 
the Journal of Applied Physiology. 

She picked up the second major after only 
one semester as a biological sciences student. 
Wang enjoyed the intimacy of the upper- 
level English classes and the nonscientific 
discussions. It provided balance. If she got 
tired of microbes, she'd work on a short story 
assignment. 

"In each class, she did solid 'A' work, in 
difficult courses that required 40 pages of 
writing and three exams," says Michael 
Olmert, professor of the practice in the 
Department of English. "In fact, she did sen- 
sational work." 

After graduation, Wang will take a week 
to relax, then plunge into applying to medi- 
cal schools. She also would like to travel to 
her parents' homeland of China to supple- 
ment calligraphy and folklore courses she 
took at Maryland. 

She doesn't have a particular school in 
mind, since she's not sure of her focus, but 
she is clear on one geographical requirement: 
"It must be north of Virginia," she says. "I do 
not handle hot weather well." 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND / 2012 Spring Commencement 11 



JOHN BERRY '80 / COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 




John Berry, director of the U.S. Office 
of Personnel Management, is the federal 
government's chief people person. He is 
responsible for recruiting, hiring and setting 
benefits policies for 1.9 million federal civil- 
ian employees. 

He works closely with partners inside and 
outside of government to fulfill President 
Barack Obama's charge to "make government 
cool again by developing flexible, results- 
oriented HR policies and working to change 
how Americans view their public servants." 

Berry shares his goal of building a 
workforce of dynamic innovators who put 
serving the American people at the heart 
of everything they do. "The university is 
pleased to have John Berry as our spring 
commencement speaker," says university 
President Wallace D. Loh. "His goal to create 
a federal workforce of dynamic innovators 
fits perfectly with Maryland's push to create 
students who are more entrepreneurial and 
able to think outside the box." 



With more than 20 years of experience in 
the federal government, Berry is a passionate 
and aggressive advocate for public service 
and federal workers. He developed expertise 
in employee and retirement issues during 
10 years as legislative director for U.S. Rep. 
Steny Hoyer, now the House minority whip. 

During the Clinton administration, Berry 
served as deputy assistant secretary and act- 
ing assistant secretary for law enforcement 
at the Department of the Treasury. There, he 
supervised more than 40 percent of the fed- 
eral law enforcement community, including 
the Secret Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, 
Tobacco and Firearms. He then served as 
assistant secretary for policy, management 
and budget at the Department of the Interior. 

Berry pursued his interest in conservation 
as director of the National Fish and Wildlife 
Foundation from 2001 to 2008, then as direc- 
tor of the National Zoo, where John the Lion 
is named after him. 



12 201 2. Spring Commencement I UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



EDWARD A. ST. JOHN '61 / HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 




Edward A. St. John '61 brings to philan- 
thropy the same commitment that helped 
him build one of the region's largest and 
most successful commercial real estate firms. 
He has impacted the state, economically 
through his successful company, as a leader 
through his public service and philanthropi- 
cally through his generosity. 

In 1971, he started St. John Properties, 
which now owns and manages more than 15 
million square feet of real estate (residential, 
retail, research and development, warehouse, 
and office buildings) in Maryland, Northern 
Virginia, Wisconsin, Colorado and Louisiana. 
Valued at more than $2 billion, the company 
services more than 1,600 tenants. 

It is what he does with this success that 
makes St. John exceptional, noted Corridor 
Inc. magazine upon naming him its 2009 
Person of the Year. The company donates 7.5 
percent of its net income to charitable causes. 

Through his foundation, the Baltimore, 
Md., native has given and pledged more than 
$43 million to support local nonprofit orga- 
nizations and educational institutions. His 
personal commitment of $10 million to the 



university last year will support construc- 
tion of the Edward St. John Learning and 
Teaching Center. When it is built, approxi- 
mately 10,000 students per day will use the 
high-tech learning facility, designed to help 
them compete in a technologically advanced 
marketplace. 

"As a proud alum, I am keenly aware of 
how my education has continued to pay divi- 
dends throughout my career, and provided me 
with a solid foundation for success," he says. 
Two of St. John's three children and his sister 
also attended the University of Maryland. 

Nancy Grasmick, former state super- 
intendent of schools, says of St. John, "He 
wholeheartedly believes in the transforma- 
tional potential of education." 

St. John chairs the board of trustees 
at the Maryland Science Center. He serves 
on a number of other boards, including the 
University of Maryland Baltimore County, 
Alex Brown Center for Entrepreneurship, 
Johns Hopkins University Real Estate Institute 
and the National Association of Industrial 
and Office Parks (Maryland chapter). 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND / 2012 Spring Commencement 13 



SUZANNE G.VALENSTEIN / HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT 




Suzanne G. Valenstein currently is Research 
Scholar at The Metropolitan Museum of 
Art. She is retired from the Metropolitan's 
Department of Asian Art, where she curated 
the Chinese ceramics for thirty-five years. 
She also was guest curator for an exhibition

Sogdian Wine-Merchant, will be published 
by Cambria Press (forthcoming). In addition, 
she has written numerous articles and book 
reviews for Artibus Asiae, Oriental Art, and 
Orientations magazines. 

In Fall 1976, Ms. Valenstein was Visiting 
Lecturer in the Department of Art and 
Archaeology, Princeton University, where 
she conducted a seminar in Chinese ceram- 
ics. She has lectured widely in this country 
and abroad on the subject of Chinese ceramic 
history.

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. 

Maryland astronomer Sylvain Veilleux 
is working with NASA Goddard Space 
Flight Center to build a key component 
of the high-powered Discovery Channel 
Telescope, which is set to be completed 
this year. The technology, known as a rapid- 
response infrared imager and spectrometer, 
can "target" gamma ray bursts occurring 
in deep space. These bursts may signal the 



birth of a black hole or a neutron star, and 
the imager will identify the bursts quickly, 
guiding the telescope to a precise location 
for a closer look. 

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. 

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. 



A new partnership between the University 
of Maryland and the University of Maryland, 
Baltimore will significantly expand research 
collaborations, business development and 
student opportunities at both institutions. 
University of Maryland: MPowering the 
State includes creating a Collaborative 
School of Public Health; launching the 
University of Maryland Scholars Program 
to allow students from each institution to 
participate in research led by faculty at the 
other institution; and joining the resources 
of the two universities' offices that promote 
technology transfer and commercialization. 

The University of Maryland and Beijing 
Normal University are formally expanding 
their earth sciences research by launching 
the Joint Center on Global Change and 
Earth System Science. The center will track 
and predict the impact of climate change 
internationally, which can help forecast crop 
failure and changes in commodity prices, or 
aid in preparations for agricultural shortages. 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND / 2012 Spring Commencement 15 



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 
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 climate change, the economy, energy, homeland 
security and public health. 




16 2012 Spring (ommcniemcnl 



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 26,000 applications for 4,000 
first-year seats in Fall 2012. 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 32,000 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 startups, 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 61 -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 

The Maryland Alumni Association represents more than 300,000 
graduates of the university and fosters lifelong Terrapin connections, 
keeping alumni engaged well beyond their graduation. The alumni 
association hosts programs and events such as the Young Alumni 
BBQ and regional crab feasts, and supports more than 60 clubs and 
chapters nationwide. Current students can take advantage of such 
benefits as the Alumni Speaker Series, annual etiquette dinner 
and scholarships. Upon graduation, all Terps receive a one-year 
complimentary membership. Also available to all alumni is the 
Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center. Built by alumni, for alumni, the 
center is an inviting gathering place for friends of the university.

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.
