Today you complete the 
journey that was undertaken 
several years ago, arriving 
proudly at the threshold of a 
new life. When you look back, can you see 
how this journey has changed you? As you 
sit here today, what events stand out in your 
niind 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 quaUties 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 life's 
journey to which you can always return. 

Congratulations! 

The Senior Council

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 pubhc 
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 fiieling a burgeoning 
information technology and 
biotechnology industry'. 

By virtually every measure of 
quahty, 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 



million of a $90 million National 
Science Foundation fund created 
to support the most advanced IT 
research in the country. And that 
ftinding impacts research areas 
from engijieering to computer 
science 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 universit)' 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 
inftises the curriculum at both the 
undergraduate and graduate levels, 
exposing students to the most 
pressing issues and challenges in 
their discipline and training them 



to respond with rigor as well 
as creativity to contemporary 
problems. 

There are 13 schools and 
colleges within the organizational 
structure of the University of 
Mar>'land. Seven of these units — 
the Smith School of Business, the 
College of Education, the Clark 
School of Engineering, the Col- 
lege of Journahsm. 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 67 programs ranked in the Top 
25 nationally for their academic 
quality. 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 stams among the state's 
institutions of higher education. 

The university has enjoyed a 
decade of momentum in all of the 
areas that affect quaht\'. The aver- 
age high school GPA of entering 
students has zoomed upward from 
3.01 to 3.76, and the average SATs 
are now 1246. Sponsored research 
and outreach soared to $352 
miUion for FY02, up fixim $262 
miUion just two years ago. Private 
giving has increased even more 
dramatically, from $17 milhon 
to S77 miUion in FYOl. Alumni 
Association membership has been 
growing at an average rate of 
10 percent a year since 1992. 



UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



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 
master's programs, 70 doctoral 
programs, and one first professional 
degree program. More than 100 
centers and institutes are engaged 
in research and outreach. 

The university has licensed 
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 pohcy- 
making and international pohtical 
and economic activity enables it to 
play an active role in research and 
analysis of pubhc pohcy. Strong 
hnks to the scientific and techno- 
logical agencies and organizations 
of the federal government drive 
research in the envirormient, engi- 



neering, physics, computer science, 
Ufe 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 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. It is classi- 
fied as a Research- 1 university by 
the Carnegie Foundation by virtue 
of the range of its baccalaureate 
programs, the amount of federal 
support received, and the number 
of doctoral degrees awarded each 
year, sharing that honor with the 
top research universities in 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 from through- 
out the world. In its beginning, 
tuition cost $140, grades were sent 
home weekly to parents, and stu- 
dents could obtain room and 
board for $300 annually. 

Five years later, the growing 
mstitution was renamed the 
University of Maryland. Despite 
the name, the university was not 



The University Is On the Move 

A New Place to Celebrate: The Comcast Center is the 
new home for Maryland men and women's basketball and much 
more, including Commencement ceremonies. Comcast Corp. 
made a $25 million naming rights gift — the largest single dona- 
tion ever to the flagship campus. 

Our Constellation of Stars: The quality of Mar>'land faculty 
ranks among the finest of any research university in the United 
States and includes one Nobel Prize winner, six Puhtzer Prize 
winners and 31 National Academy members. 

Our Future Is Bright: Our Bold Vision • Bright Future campaign 
closed June 30, 2(.)02, raising more than $476 million that sup- 
ported advancements in all areas — academics, the arts, athletics. 

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 
billion annually. 

An Impact of Another Kind: NASA turned to the 
University of Maryland to lead a $279 miUion mission that 
promises astronomers a first look inside a comet, revealing 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: The flagship's rapidly rising quality is com- 
bined with diversit\'. Students of color represent a third of our 
enrollment, and Maryland is among the nation's top five research 
universities for African American graduates with bachelor's 
degrees and Ph.D.s, according to Bhuk Issi4es in Higher Education. 

Class Act: In four years, applications for freshman admission 
zoomed from 17,000 to 23,000 — an unprecedented increase of 
37 percent. Six students .ippUed for every spot in the Fall 2002 
entering class. 

Tech Transfer: More than 25 companies have been formed 
based on technologies developed at the University of Maryland; 
12 of them started since FY 'GO, and all are located within 
the state. 

Protecting our Communities: In 2002. the Maryland Fire 
and Rescue Institute trained more than 27,000 sorely needed 
professionals. 



WINTER COMMENCEMEN1 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



considered a state institution as it 
was still owned and operated by 
faculty. Baltimore College of Den- 
tal 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 
expanded 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 Associatiion 

With aluiTini clubs firom Miami 
to Taipei, Taiwan, the Maryland 
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 College Park maga- 
zine and the biannual Maryland 
Alumni supplement help keep 
alumni connected to the university 
and to each other. All graduating 
seniors and successfiil master's and 
Ph.D. candidates receive a one- 



year fi-ee membership in the 
Maryland Alumni Association.

every five years. The association

honorees in 2005. 

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, 
attracring not onlv friends and 




relatives, but the fashionable eUte 
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 for- 
ward 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 unhealed buildings. Many 
medieval scholars were tonsured, 
Hke monks, and hoods served to 
cover their shaved heads until the 
skuU 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 
Commission 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 
disciphne. 

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: OUve 
Philanthropy: Rose 
Philosophy: Dark Blue 
Public Administration, Foreign 

Service: Peacock Blue 
PubUc Health: Sahnon 
Physical Education: Sage Green 
Science: Golden Yellow 
Social Work: Citron 
Theology and Divinity: Scarlet 
Veterinar>' Sciences: Gray 

The tassel may also be colored 
to represent an academic disciphne 
or it may be black. Officially, the 
tassel is permitted "to he where it 
will" on the mortarboard. How- 
ever, 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 senior 
leaders who play an important role 
in the graduation ceremony. They 
assist in organizing the thousands 
of graduates, leading them 
smoothly through the commence- 
ment procession. They also supply 
extra caps and hoods, and bobby 
pins to keep headwear secure. 
December 2002 marshals are Usted 
on page 60 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

The senior gift is a university 
tradition dating back 92 years. 
The first senior gift, the iron gate 
entrance at the Rossborough Inn, 
was given by the Class of 1910 
(although the gate itself was not 
erected until 1941). The Class of 
2002 will leave its mark with the 
creation ofTerrapin Gardens, a 
quiet park near Memorial Chapel 
that is intended as a place for 
reflection on the past academic 
year. Engraved landscaping stones 
will commemorate such momen- 
tous events as September 1 1 , the 
tornado. Nelson Mandela's visit. 
Cole's last game, the university's 
first NCAA men's basketball 
championship, as well as quotes 
from senior class members about 
the significance of the year.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



The purpose of the senior gift 
is twofold. Each year the senior 
class leaves behind a memorable 
legacy for new students and visi- 
tors, and provides the university 
■with a gift that enhances the 
campus atmosphere. 

Past senior gifts have included: 
theTestudo statue (Class of 1933), 
the lights around the "M" in the 
traiBc 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- 
rendy conferred by colleges and 
universities nationwide. The Um- 
versity of Maryland offers degrees 
in 94 undergraduate majors, 89 
master's programs, 70 doctoral 
programs and one first professional 
degree. 

The Doctor's Degree 

The doctor's 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 completion of original 
research by the student. The 
University of Maryland, at the 
professional 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 Maryland 
conveys the Doctor of Veterinary 
Medicine (D.V.M.) to appro.Ni- 
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 
partner 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 smdy is mtended 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 
imphcation 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 examination 
are usually required. In 1 920, the 
University of Maryland awarded its 
first Master of Arts (M.A.) and Mas- 
ter of Science (M.S.) degrees in 
fields other than agriculmre. 

The Bachelor's Degree 

The bachelor's degree represents 
the conrpletion of a four-year 
course of coUege-level study and 
is the oldest academic degree 
awarded by American institutions 
of higher learning. It was first con- 
ferred in America in 1642 on the 
first nine graduates of Harvard 
College. Maryland Agriculture 
College, which later became the 
University of Mar>'land, College 
Park, awarded its first Bachelor of 
Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Sci- 
ence (B.S.) in 1862.

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 



For nearly half a century, Dorothy Irene Height has given leadership to the struggle 
for equality and human rights for all people. As the fourth president of the National 
Council of Negro Women, started in 1937 by Mary McCloud Bethune, Height has 
helped countless women in America and around the world participate in democra- 
tic reform resulting in new opportunities for themselves, their families and their conmiunities. 
This past March, celebrities gathered at a gala to celebrate her 90th birthday, raising more than 
$5 million to support the NCNW that she led for more than 40 years. 

Born in Richmond, Va., in 1912, Height stood out at a very young age as a dedicated 
student with strong oratorical skills. She would later become known as one of the major 
leaders of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, as she participated in virtually all major 
civil and human rights events of those turbulent times. 

Although she has served both government and social service associations in many capacities. 
Height IS best known by her leadership role with theYWCA and the NCNW. When Height 
was assistant director of the Harlem YWCA, she escorted Eleanor Roosevelt into an NCNW 
meeting in 1937. It was then that Height joined Bethune in her quest for women's rights to 
full and equal employment, pay and education. 

In 1957, Height assumed the presidency of the National Council of Negro Women and led 
the organization until January 1998 when she became president emerita. In 1965, she founded 
and served as director of the Center for Racial Justice, a position she held until 1977. 

Height's distinguished service has led to more than 50 awards including the Citizen's Medal 
Award, presented by President Ronald Reagan in 1989, the same year she received the 
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Freedom Medal; induction into the National Women's Hall of 
Fame, in 1993; and the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award in 1994. She has received 29 
honorary degrees from such institutions as Spelman CoOege, Harvard and Princeton. Today, the 
University of Maryland is privileged to add its name to those who have honored the woman 
who has dedicated her hfe to the betterment of all people, and to the African American 
woman and Black family, in particular.

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Kirsten Ehrenspcck 



Facing her fears head on, this winter's commencement speaker, Kirsten Ehrenspeck, 
sought to overcome a phobia of pubhc speaking by choosing a major in secondary 
education, speech and Enghsh. Today her success is evident: Besides speaking before 
hundreds of her peers, Ehrenspeck graduates with honors and a 3.9 grade-point 
a\erage, havmg fulfilled many leadership roles at Maryland, including teaching an Honors 
section of freshman students. 

Ehrenspecks achievements have been propelled by two simple life-gtiiding questions: 
"How can I improve myself?" and "How can I help others?" The answers to those questions 
motivated the 22-year-old to pursue teaching as a career. "I knew strong pubhc speaking skills 
would be important as a teacher, so I decided to take something that was a weakness and turn 
it into a strength," she says. 

Her mentors at Maryland, Uke professor Ann A. Battle of the Department of Human 
Development in the College of Education, see only strengths. "She is remarkably dedicated, 
persistent, and above all, scholarly in her approach to her academic studies," Battle wrote in 
a letter recommending Ehrenspecks nomination as commencement speaker. Battle credits 
Ehrenspeck for her, "highly energized, inteUectually sophisticated" approach to her studies, 
adding that she "thought above, beyond and outside of every box that was presented." 

During her time at Maryland, Ehrenspeck founded "The Prism," the College of Education 
undergraduate newsletter, and helped reform the College of Educations peer-mentoring 
program, now called "Terp Pals." She played the flute and the piccolo in the Mights' Sound 
of Maryland marching band, and was a member of Alpha Lambda Delta honors society and 
the University Honors Program. She also plays piano competitively, and says she appreciates 
any opportunity to travel and experience other cultures firsthand. Ehrenspeck spent her last 
semester at Maryland student-teaching at an area middle school and high school. She wrote 
her honors thesis on the psychosocial development of elementary and middle school students 
who are labeled "gifted and talented" by their school systems. 

Although excited about her future, Ehrenspeck says she loved her college experience. "I am 
sad to graduate," she says. "I wish I could go back and do it again and take all new classes."
