BEST WISHES AND CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL GRADUATES 




M ongratulations on the completion of your degrees! Earning a university degree 

■ is a milestone in your lives, and you and your families should be very proud of 

^^ m your accomplishment. I predict that in the years to come, you will increasingly 
appreciate the education you have received at Maryland. You have learned not only the facts 
and current theories that underlie your field, but you have also learned how to formulate and 
underpin your ideas. You may have thought that you were coming here to get your questions 
answered, but by now you have learned that you really came here to question your answers. 
The University of Maryland has offered you opportunities to develop your academic interests 
and talents, and extend your intellectual and cultural horizons. These experiences will guide 
you throughout your hfe.You have also made new friends during your time here and found 
new mentors, and they too will enrich your hfe in many ways that no one can predict today. 
As you leave us, I would Uke you to know how much we, the ficulty and staff, appreciate 
your accomphshments as scholars, artists, athletes and leaders — as individuals. You have enriched 
our lives and have helped the university reach new levels of distinction and esteem. I urge you 
to stay connected with us and take fuU advantage of the benefits of being a member of the 
University of Maryland family. I hope that you will return to campus often, continue to support 
us, and help us shape the future of new generations of students. You are now members of the 
university's alumni family, and we welcome you to this special group. Please consider joining 
us for the campus-wide open house, Maryland Day 2002, on Saturday, AprU 27, 2002. 

You have my very best wishes for success in all your endeavors. We are proud of each and 
every one of you! 



Yours sincerely, 
CD. Mote, Jr. 
President

Today you complete the 
journey that was undertaken 
several years ago, arriving 
proudly at the threshold of a 
new Ufe. When you look back, can you see 
how this journey has changed you? As you 
sit here today, what events stand out in your 
mind as experiences that showed you which 
path to travel? 

We have each followed a unique path but 
have reached a common destination. As 
seniors, it is easier to list the ways in which 
we are different from each other than the 
ways in which we are bound together. 

We are accustomed to describing students in groups — commuters, residents; members of 
ethnic, rehgious, or professional organizations; students in particular departments and colleges. 
These differences should be admired and respected as should the many qualities we share. 

From this point, you can reflect on past journeys. Remember what you learned along the 
way about who you are and what you are capable of achieving. 

Know that your time spent at the University of Maryland will help you arrive at your 
next destination. Finally, always consider our campus to be another home, a stop on your Ufe's 
journey to which you can always return. 

Congratulations!

WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Bold New Era 

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 pubUc 
research university of national 
stature, highly regarded for its 
broad base of excellence in teach- 
ing and research. Maryland's beau- 
tifiil 1,200 acre campus is in the 
heart of the 1-270 research corri- 
dor that is fueling a burgeoning 
information technology and 
biotechnology industry. 

By virtually every measure of 
quaUry, the University of Maryland 
has gained national recognition as 
one of the fastest rising compre- 
hensive research institutions in the 
country. In fall 2000, after a 
nationwide competition, the uni- 
versity received a grant of $9.5 



miUion of a $90 miUion National 
Science Foundation fund created 
to support the most advanced IT 
research in the country. And that 
funding impacts research areas 
from engineering to computer sci- 
ence to geography to social sci- 
ences. The momentum of recent 
years has poised the university to 
move into the top ranks of higher 
education and take leadership in 
shaping the research university of 
the 21st century. 

The university's commitment 
to quahty education in a research 
environment is key to its academic 
reputation and the success of its 
graduates. The research enterprise 
infuses the curriculum at both the 
undergraduate and graduate levels, 
exposing students to the most 
pressing issues and challenges in 
their disciphne and training them 



to respond with rigor as well as 
creativity to contemporary prob- 
lems. 

There are 13 schools and col- 
leges within the organizational 
structure of the University of 
Maryland. Seven of these units — 
the Smith School of Business, the 
College of Education, the Clark 
School of Engineering, the Col- 
lege of Journalism, the College of 
Computer, Mathematical and 
Physical Sciences, the College of 
Information Studies and the 
School of Pubhc Affairs — have 
been recognized by their peers and 
in various rankings as among the 
25 best in the nation. Today, there 
are 60 programs ranked in the Top 
25 nationally for their academic 
quahry. The breadth of this excel- 
lence is a source of pride for stu- 
dents, faculty and staff, and is 
endorsement for the university's 
flagship status among the state's 
institutions of higher education. 

The university has enjoyed a 
decade of momentum in all of the 
areas that affect quality. The aver- 
age high school GPA of entering 
students has zoomed upward from 
3.01 to 3.75, and the average SATs 
are now 1246. Sponsored research 
and outreach has nearly tripled in 
the same 10-year period, reaching 
$308.5 nulhon for FYOl. Private 
giving has increased even more 
dramatically, from $17 million to 
$77 miUion in FYOl. Alumni 
Association membership has been 
growing at an average rate of 10

percent a year since 1992. Coupled 
with renewed commitment from 
the state of Maryland for funding 
flagship initiatives, these factors 
ensure that the university will con- 
tinue on a forward trajectory for 
many years to come. 

One of the largest research 
universities in the United States, 
current enrollment stands at 
25,099 undergraduate and 9,061 
graduate students. There are 94 
undergraduate programs, 89 mas- 
ter's programs, 70 doctoral pro- 
grams, and one first professional 
degree program. More than 100 
centers and institutes are engaged 
111 research and outreach. 

The university has hcensed 
more than 750 technologies since 
1986, and has been issued 135 U.S. 
patents. An average of two new 
invention disclosures each week 
are received by the Office of 
Technology Liaison, a reflection of 
the pace of innovative technolo- 
gies being created at the university. 
Through its Maryland Industrial 
Partnerships Program, the univer- 
sity collaborates with more than 
280 businesses and has spawned 20 
new companies; three of which 
have been recognized as among 
the fastest growing in the state. 

Faculty at the University of 
Maryland, in all fields of knowl- 
edge, are engaged at the highest 
levels of national and international 
concern. 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 pubUc pohcy. Strong 
Unks to the scientific and techno- 
logical agencies and organizations 
of the federal government drive 
research in the environment, engi- 
neering, physics, computer science, 
life sciences and agriculture. Schol- 
arship in the arts, humanities and 
social sciences is marked by the 
spirit of intellectual diversity and 
interdisciplinary collaboration. 

Maryland is one of the 
research universities in the presti- 
gious 61 -member Association of 
American Universities and the 
only public institution in the 
Maryland-D.C. area with member- 
ship in the nation's most distin- 
guished honor society. Phi Beta 
Kappa. It is classified as a 
Research- 1 university by the 
Carnegie Foundation by virtue of 
the range of its baccalaureate pro- 
grams, the amount of federal sup- 
port received, and the number of 
doctoral degrees awarded each 
year, sharing that honor with the 
top research universities m the 
country. 

History 

The University of Maryland was 
founded in 1807 in Baltimore as a 
faculty-owned College of Medi- 
cine. The medical school was con- 
sidered one of the top schools in 
the country, attracting notable pro- 
fessors and lecturers firom through- 
out the world. In its beginning, 
tuition cost $140, grades were sent 



University Highlights 



Our Constellation of Stars: The quality of University 
of Maryland faculty ranks among the finest of any 
research university in the United States and includes one 
Nobel Prize winner, one Poet Laureate, six Pulitzer 
Prize winners and 23 National Academy members. 

A Bright Future Indeed: The university raised $401.2 
nullion at the end of the Bold Vision • Bright Future 
campaign's sixth (of seven) years against a goal of $350 
million. 

An Economic Force: The University of Maryland 
generates $5.93 of economic activity for every doUar 
appropriated by the General Assembly, providing a 
statewide impact of nearly $1.8 bilhon annually. 

An Impact of Another Kind: NASA turned to the 
University of Maryland to lead a $279 million mission 
that promises astronomers a first look inside a comet, 
reveaUng the pristine materials that form the basis of our 
solar system. The projectile is slated to reach Comet 
Tempel 1 on July 4, 2005. 

Leading the Way: In annual Black Issues In Higher Edu- 
cation rankings released over the summer, Maryland was 
among the top 10 graduating African Americans in 13 
programs. Maryland was 12th in graduation rates for 
black male baccalaureate degrees in aU disciplines. The 
magazine noted Maryland was No. 7 in producing 
African American students for medical school. 

A New Place to Celebrate: University activities like 
athletic events and Commencement ceremonies will be 
held in the new Comcast Center arena beginning in the 
2002-03 school year. Comcast Corp. made a $20 million 
naming rights gift — the largest single donation ever to 
the flagship campus.

home weekly to parents, and stu- 
dents could obtain room and 
board for S300 annually. 

Five years later, the growing 
institution was renamed the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. Despite the 
name, the university was not con- 
sidered a state institution as it was 
still owned and operated by fac- 
ulty. Baltimore College of Dental 
Surgery, the first dental school in 
the world, became a part of the 
university in 1 840, awarding the 
first Doctor of Dental Surgery 
P.D.S.) degree in 1841. 

In 1859, the Maryland Agri- 
cultural 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 spending one 
hour each day hoeing or plowing 
on the college farm, students took 
a broad range of courses in ancient 
and modern languages, natural sci- 
ences, English and mathematics. 
After a disastrous fire on campus in 
1912, the state acquired the college 
and rebuilt it. 

In 1920, the state legislature 
combined the College Park insti- 
tution with the professional 
schools in Baltimore to form an 
e.xpanded University of Maryland. 
The entity eventually grew to 
include campuses in Baltimore 
County, the Eastern Shore and 
University College, a continuing 
education institution. 

The following decades saw the 
increasing growth of student pop- 



ulation, excellence in programs 
and curricula, and the burgeoning 
of the University of Maryland, 
College Park, into a nationally rec- 
ognized 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 uni- 
versities and colleges to form the 
University System of Maryland, 
and College Park secured its flag- 
ship status with a mandate to 
become one of the pre-eminent 
research universities in the nation. 




The Alumni Association 

With alumni clubs fi-om Mianu to 
Taipei, Taiwan, the Maryland 
Alumni Association strives to keep 
and strengthen ties between the 
university and its graduates. Mem- 
ber events such as pre-game par- 
ties, bull roasts, picnics, golf 
tournaments, dinner cruises and 
subscriptions to College Park maga- 



zine and the biamiual Maryland 
Alumni supplement help keep 
alumni connected to the university 
and to each other. All graduating 
seniors and successfiil masters and 
Ph.D. candidates receive a one- 
year fi-ee membership in the 
Maryland Alumm Association.

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 gath- 
ered to watch the young graduates 
parade. It was a gala social occasion, 
attracting not only firiends and rela- 
tives, but the fashionable elite of the 
day. At the ceremony, prayers were 
recited, speeches were made, and 
honorary degrees were awarded to 
distinguished figures fi-om 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 stu- 
dent 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, 
Uke monks, and hoods served to 
cover their shaved heads until the 
skull cap 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 they were standardized 
by the American Intercollegiate 
Conmiission 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. 

A list of department colors follows: 
Agriculture: Maize 
Arts, Letters, Humanities: White 
Business Administration, 

Commercial Science: Drab 
Dentistry: Lilac 
Economics: Copper 
Education: Light Blue 
Engineering: Orange 
Fine Arts, Architecture: Brown 
Forestry: Russet 
Home Economics: Maroon 
Journahsm: Crimson 
Law: Purple 
Library Science: Lemon 
Medicine: Green 
Music: Pink 
Nursing: Apricot 
Oratory, Speech: Silver Gray 
Pharmacy: OHve 
Philanthropy: Rose 
Philosophy: Dark Blue 
PubUc Administration, Foreign 

Service: Peacock Blue 
Pubhc Health: Sahnon 
Physical Education: Sage Green 
Science: Golden Yellow 
Social Work: Citron 
Theology and Divinity: Scarlet 
Veterinary Sciences: Gray 

The tassel may also be colored 
to represent an academic disciphne 



or it may be black. Officially, the 
tassel is permitted "to lie where it 
will" on the mortarboard. How- 
ever, numerous institutions have 
adopted the practice of having 
degree candidates wear the tassel 
on the right fi"ont side at the start 
of the commencement ceremony 
and then shift them to the left: side 
after degrees are awarded.

process, student marshals are senior 
leaders who play an important role 
in the graduation ceremony. Stu- 
dent marshals assist in organizing 
the thousands of graduates, leading 
them smoothly through the com- 
mencement procession. They also 
supply extra caps and hoods, and 
bobby pins to keep headwear 
secure. December 2001 marshals are 
listed on page 68 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

The senior gift is a university tra- 
dition dating back 90 years. The 
first senior gift, the iron gate 
entrance at the Rossborough Inn, 
was given by the Class of 1 9 1 
(although the gate itself was not 
erected until 1941). The Class of 
2001 will leave its mark by prepar- 
ing a new home for the Maryland 
Terrapin statue that is currently in 
Cole Student Activities Building. 
After refiarbishing, it will occupy a 
similar place of honor in the 
Comcast Center. 

The purpose of the senior gift 
is twofold. Each year the senior 
class leaves behind a memorable

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



legacy for new students and visi- 
tors, and provides the university 
with a gift that enhances the cam- 
pus atmosphere. 

Past senior gifts have included: 
theTestudo statue (Class of 1933), 
the hghts around the "M" in the 
traffic circle on Campus Drive 
(Class of 1986), restoration of the 
Chapel chimes and clock face 
(Class of 1992) and the Bronzed 
Seal on North Gate House (Class 
of 1995). 

Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the suc- 
cessfiil completion of a course of 
study. There are more than 1,600 
different academic degrees cur- 
rently conferred by colleges and 
universities nationwide. The Uni- 
versity of Mar^'land ofl^ers degrees 
in 94 undergraduate majors, 89 
master's programs, 70 doctoral pro- 
grams and one first professional 
degree. 

The Doctor's Degree 

The doctor's degree represents the 
most advanced earned degree con- 
ferred by American institutions. 
There are two distinct types: the 
practitioner's degree and the 
research degree. The first t^'pe rep- 
resents advanced training for the 
practice of various professions, 
principally Doctor of Medicine, 
Juris Doctor, Doctor of Pharmacy, 
and Doctor of Veterinary Medi- 
cine. These degrees do not involve 
the completion of original 
research by the student. The Uni- 
versity of Mar\land, at the profes- 



sional school in Baltimore, 
awarded the first two dental 
degrees ever on March 9, 1841, 
and invented the name of the 
degree. Doctor of Dental Surgery 
P.D.S.). 

The University of Marv'land 
conveys the Doctor of Veterinary 
Medicine (D.V.M.) to approxi- 
mately 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 
parmer institution, the Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute and State 
University. 

The second type is the research 
doctorate representing prolonged 
periods of advanced study. A dis- 
sertation that usually accompanies 
the study is intended to contribute 
substantially to the body of knowl- 
edge on the subject. The most 
important of these, the Doctor of 
Philosophy, no longer has an 
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 examina- 
tion are usually required. In 1920, 



the University' of Maryland 
awarded its first Master of Arts 
(M.A.) and Master of Science 
(M.S.) 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 con- 
ferred in America in 1 642 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 (B.A.) and Bachelor of Sci- 
ence (B.S.) in 1862.

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 



The Surgeon General is charged with overseeing the pubhc health of the United 
States. While invoking that office's traditional aims of "saluting gains while con- 
tinuing to set ever higher benchmarks for the pubhc health," David Satcher, the 
16th Surgeon General, has extended them. He has emphasized that a healthy 
beginning in Hfe, good oral health throughout life, and hfelong access to prevention and treat- 
ment of mental illness influence overall pubhc health. He has also forged in the public mind 
how socioeconomic disparities lead to unequal access to health care and thus to poorer public 
health as well. 

Satcher struck a chord with a vast constituency in his groundbreaking emphasis on mental 
health, violence, and suicide. He sponsored the first-ever national conference on suicide pre- 
vention, which brought together survivors, surviving family members, health care professionals, 
and government ofiicials. His report on mental health for the first time provided an overview 
of the public health role in promoting mental health. 

While Satcher has been Surgeon General, he has also worked as assistant secretary for 
health, the first Surgeon General to do so. He came to the office in 1998 after serving as 
director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and administrator of the Agency 
for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. He is no stranger university campuses, having 
served as the president of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, as chairman of 
the Department of Community Medicine and Family Practice at Morehouse School of 
Medicine; and as a faculty member of the UCLA School of Medicine and Pubhc Health and 
the King-Drew Medical Center in Los Angeles. 

Satcher graduated fi-om Morehouse College in Atlanta, where he was elected to Phi Beta 
Kappa. He received his doctor of medicine and doctor of philosophy degrees from Case 
Western Reserve University m 1970, with election to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. 
He and his wife, poet Nola Satcher, live in Bethesda, Maryland, and have four children.

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Sonia Kumar 



Sonia Kumar is a weD-rounded student — a Banneker Key Scholar in the Honors pro- 
gram with a 3.9 academic average. But as Greig Stewart, associate dean of the jour- 
nahsm program says, "Though Soma's academic performance has been exemplary, it 
says little about Sonia herself." Born in America to a father firom India and a mother 
ofTurkish and Persian extraction from Iran, Kumar comes by her international perspective nat- 
urally. But she augments that perspective at every opportunity. Stewart says, "Whether we find 
Sonia reporting in the Baltimore inner city, providing disaster reUef in southern Afirica, or 
returning to her mother's home city ofTehran, she brings to her conversations a view that spans 
geopohtical and racial boundaries, connecting with people m unique and interesting ways." 
One reason Kumar chose to major in journalism is that she likes to be the first to know 
what's going on. But she doesn't hoard that knowledge — she wants to make a difierence in the 
world as a writer informing other people. "One thing that has always struck me is how Httle 
people in America know about life in the Middle East, how people make assumptions about 
violence there and the hves of women." Typically, Kumar took the matter into her own story- 
telling hands. In the summer of 2001, she won a Senior Summer Scholars Award that allowed 
her to write and travel in Iran. The result is a series of fictional narratives, "To the Samovar 
Stand and Back: Exploring Real Life in Iran through Fiction."Why fiction? "I liked the flexi- 
bility of fiction to get at the truth of the place," says Kumar. She is completing the work as her 
first novel. 

JournaHsm instructor Diana Huffman says that professors are exhorted to view young peo- 
ple as candles to be Ut. She says, "Sonia's candle is burning brightly, not because of her teachers 
but because of her inteDect and curiosity. She exemplifies the very best of College Park."
