The University ot Maryland has offered you opportunities to develop your interests and 
expand your horizons. I hope that you took full advantage of them and that they have opened 
your eyes and many doors for you. You have made friends and found mentors who wiU

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

I hope that you stay connected to UM and take full advantage of being an alum. Stay 
involved with us and help new generations of students give form to their futures. You can 
do this by returning to campus often, starting with Maryland Day 2007, on April 28.

Dear Graduating Seniors, 

While commencement is believed to be a time of 
ending, the term "commencement" actually 
means beginning. We are celebrating a new start 
in which we will more fuUy mature into the skills, talents, 
experiences and personalities we have developed over the past 
few years. It is a time to see from where we have come, admire 
who we are today and imagine our potential. 

Each of us is focusing our journeys in different ways, but 
we share a time period that others cannot fully comprehend as 
we do. We are witness to shared experiences on campus, in the 
local community and in the world around us. We have come to 
depend on each other in times ot need and celebrate with each 
other in times of excitement and joy. We will torever be linked 
as the graduating class of 2006, 

Commencement is not a time to stop learning or sever this 
devotion to the University of Maryland, for it will always be 
our home. As much as these tew years have helped us develop, 
our influence has made an indelible mark on this institution. 

Congratulations graduates and best wishes!

WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Continuing Commitment 
to Excellence 

From its pre-Civil War roots as the 
state's 6rst agricultural college and 
one of America's original land 
grant institutions, the Universitv' of 
Maryland has emerged as a public 
research university of national 
stature, highly regarded for its 
broad base of excellence in teach- 
ing and research. Maryland's beau- 
tiful 1 .200-acre campus is in the 
heart of the 1-270 research corri- 
dor that is fuehng a burgeoning 
information technology' and 
biotechnology industry. 

The momentum ot recent 
years has poised the university to 
take leadership in shaping the 
research university of the 21st cen- 
tury. 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. Maryland is one o( the 
nation's Top 20 public nation.il 
universities, and the quality of our 
faculty — with three Nobel laure- 
ates, SIX Puhtzer Prize winners and 
scores of Fulbright scholars — is 
among the finest of any research 
university in the United States. 

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 Philip 
Merrill College of Journahsm, the 
College of Computer, Mathemati- 
cal and Physical Sciences, the Col- 
lege of Information Studies and 
tile School of Public Policy — have 
been recognized by their peers and 
in various rankings as among the 
25 best m the nation. The breadth 



of this excellence is a source of 
pride for students, faculty and staff, 
and is endorsement for the univer- 
sity's flagship status among the 
state's institutions of higher educa- 
tion. 

The university also continues 
to move forward in the quality of 
our students and the support of 
our faithful alunuii. Freshman 
admission is increasingly competi- 
tive. More than 22,460 appUca- 
tions were received for only 4,223 
spots in the Fall 2005 entering 
class. Once accepted students com- 
plete their academic journey, they 
will join a rapidly increasing fam- 
ily of alumni who are proud to be 
called Terps. Maryland Alumni 
Association membership has 
grown to more than 30,000 dues 
paying members since its inception 
in 1989. 

The university's commitment 
to quahty education in a research 
environment is key to its academic 
reputation and the success of its 
graduates. More than 100 centers 
and institutes are engaged in 
research and outreach. The 
research enterprise infuses the cur- 
riculum at both the undergraduate 
and graduate levels, exposing stu- 
dents to the most pressing issues 
and challenges in their discipline 
and training them to respond with 
rigor as well as creativity to con- 
temporary problems. 

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- 
nialang and niternational political 
and economic activity enables it to 
play an active role in research and 
analysis of pubhc policy. Strong 
Hnks to the scientific and techno- 
logical agencies and organizations 
of the tederal government drive 
research in the environment, engi- 
neering, physics, computer science, 
hfe 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 pubHc institution in the 
Maryland-D.C. area with member- 
ship in the nations most distin- 
guished honor society. Phi Beta 
Kappa. 

Total sponsored research and 
outreach revenue for fiscal year 
2006 totaled $350 million. These 
funds for research, traimng and 
outreach come from a variety of 
sources including the federal gov- 
ernment, state government, corpo- 
rations and foundations. 

The Office of Technology 
Commerciahzation (OTC) at the 
University of Maryland was estab- 
hshed in late 1986 to facihtate the 
transfer of information, Hfe and 
physical science inventions devel- 
oped at the university to business 
and industry. In its 19-year history, 
OTC has recorded more than 



1,500 technologies, secured more 
than 275 patents and hcensed 
more than 750 technologies, gen- 
erating more than $23.5 million in 
technology transfer income. OTC 
collaborates with university ofiices 
such as the Maryland Technologs' 
Enterprise Institute, the Technol- 
ogy Advancement Program, the 
Small Business Development Cen- 
ter and the Dmgman Center for 
Entrepreneurship. These partner- 
ships demonstrate the university's 
broad range of technology transfer 
services, R&D fianding, partnering 
opportunities and entrepreneurial 
capabilities to the local conmiu- 
nity, industry and government. 

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 fi-om 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 
institution was renamed the Uni- 
versity ot Maryland. Despite the 
name, the university was not con- 
sidered a state institution as it was 
stiU 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 1840, awarding the 



The University Is On the Move 

Leading the Way: Among Top 20 national public universities, 

Maryland is No. 1 in the total number of degrees conferred upon 
African American students. 



New Homes for Innovation: We're building M Square, the University 
of Mar\land Research Park, which will bring nearly 6,500 new jobs 
to the area. The state of Maryland also approved $60.6 million in 
planning and construction fiinds, allowing us to build a new Bioscience 
Research Building (opening in 2007), bolstering the university's goal to 
provnde regional leadership m education and research for the biosciences. 

Our Constellation of Stars: The quality of Maryland faculty ranks 
among the finest of any research university in the United States and 
includes three Nobel laureates, six Puhtzer Prize winners, 40 members 
ot national academies and scores of Fulbright scholars. 

Impact of Another Kind: In October 2006, a University of 
Maryland proposal to send the Deep Impact spacecraft to get a 
close-up look at Comet Boethin cleared the biggest step in NASA's 
selection process, becoming one of only three contenders for final 
approval. The proposal builds on the groundbreaking July 2005 
mission led by university scientists in which the Deep Impact 
spacecraft hit Comet Tempel 1 , providing valuable information 
about the solar system to researchers around the world. 

Great Expectations: The university has launched a $ 1 biUion capital 
campaign that includes among its goals raising at least $350 million for 
scholarships and fellowships, which are needed to ensure that lower- 
and middle-income students have the financial means to obtain their 
degrees. Co-chairing this important effort are alumnus and men's head 
basketball coach Gary Wilhams, alumnus and national newswoman 
Connie Chung, and alumnus and technology entrepreneur Buno Pati. 

An Economic Force: For every dollar the state invests in the 
University of Maryland, the university puts nearly $6 back into the 
state, providing an economic impact of nearly $1.8 biUion annually. 

Lending Knowledge: With eight Ubranes on campus and more than 
three million volumes on the shelves, the university's library system is 
the largest in the state.

first Doctor of Dental Surger\' 
(D.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 coUege 
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 
nicrea.sing 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 aluimii clubs from 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, dirmer cruises and 
subscriptions to Terp, the 
University of Maryland magazine, 
help keep alumni connected to the 
university' and to each other. All 
graduating seniors and successfial 
master's and Ph.D. candidates 
receive a one-year free member- 
ship in the Maryland Alumni 
Association.

Association s Hall of Fame honors

Customs of Commencement 

Early conmiencement ceremonies 
at the University of Maryland were 
marked with great tantare and cele- 
bration. The faculty gave huge ban- 



quets 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 the 
fashionable ebte of the day. At the 
ceremony, prayers were recited, 
speeches were made, and honorary 
degrees were awarded to distin- 
guished figures firom 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, 
Hke 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 they were standardized 
by the American Intercollegiate 
Commission in 1894. At that time 
It was decided that aU 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 discipluie 
or it may be black. OfEcially, the 
tassel IS permitted "to lie where it 
will " on the mortarboard. However, 
numerous instituoons have adopted 
the practice of having degree 
candidates wear the tassel on the 
right fi-ont side at the start of the 
coiiuiiencement ceremony and 
then sliift them to the left side after 
degrees are awarded. 



Student Marshals 

Elected through a noimnation 
process, student marshals are senior 
leaders who play an important role 
111 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. December 2006 marshals are 
listed on page 65 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

Since 1910, members of the grad- 
uating class have supported a 
senior gift designed to commemo- 
rate their college experience. Tra- 
ditionally the gift serves as a 
contribution to the campus com- 
munm- that forever hnks alumni 
with the university. When you see 
the Testudo statue on McKeldin 
M.1II, the clock outside of Stamp, 
or the Henson statue and memor- 
ial garden, you're looking at Senior 
Class Gifts. These, and other gifts 
scattered around the university, are 
tributes to years of hard work and 
to unwavering love for our alma 
mater. Now, it's your turn to take 
part m the tradition that puts us 
"heads and shells above the rest!" 

The 2006-2007 Class Gift is 
Northgate Park at the entry onto 
campus just north of the U.S. 
Route 1 Bridge crossing Paint 
Branch. The class gift will con- 
tribute to prominent park features 
such as a gateway, a meadow, an 
environmental educational walk- 
w.iy and an orchard. Northgate

Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the 
successful completion of a course 
of study. There are more than 
1 ,600 different academic degrees 
currently conferred by colleges and 
universities nationwide. The 
University of Maryland offers 
degrees in 127 undergraduate 
majors, 72 doctoral progratns, 93 
master's programs 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 type rep- 
resents advanced training for the 
practice of various professions, 
prmcipally Doctor of Medicine, 
Juris Doctor, Doctor of Pharmacy, 
and Doctor ofVeterinary Medi- 
cine. These degrees do not involve 
the completion of original 
research by the student. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland, 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 
(D.D.S.). 

The University of Maryland 
conveys the Doctor ofVeterinary 
Medicine (D.V.M.) to approxi- 
mately 90 students each year m 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 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 masters 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.

A 



s part of United Way of America's leadership for the last 25 years, Brian Gallagher 
helped create a more results-oriented organization that is also known for its high 
level of transparency and accountabilit)'. 



He became president and chief executive ofBcer in 2002, immediately turning the organiza- 
tion's focus from raising and distributing funds to galvanizing resources to create greater 
community impact. Two key national initiatives demonstrate his vision for United Way, 2—1—1 
and Success by 6. The first calls tor national implementation of a new three-digit phone num- 
ber that will connect callers with information on health and community services and volunteer 
opportunities. The second program helps parents and caregivers of young children prepare 
them for school, starting from birth until age 6. 

Gallagher's commitment to accountabiUt^' and ethical practice comes through not only in 
his work tor United Way, but through his work as a board member for Independent Sector, as 
well. This coalition of nonprofit organizations encourages the sector to meet the highest stan- 
dards ot value, effectiveness and ethical practice. 

He is encouraged by young adults' greater interest in community service. "Young people are 
asking, almost demanding, to get involved... And those of us in the charitable sector couldn't 
be happier. 

"It's incumbent upon us to provide those opportunities and harness the energv' that's out 
there. There are more than enough worthwhile causes to go around, so make sure you pick 
something you love and then give whatever you can — time, treasure or talent." 

Gallagher came to United Way's national headquarters m Alexandria, Va., from the United Way 
ot Central Ohio, where he served as president and created the successflil Family Housing Collab- 
orative. The effort works to obtain low-cost housing wlule providing day care and job training. 

He received his bachelor's degree in social work from Ball State UniversiU' and his master's 
in business administration from Emory University'.

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Ashleigh Butler 




imisic performance and music education double major, Ashleigh Buder is one of 
tlie university's brightest stars. Her optmiism and love of learning have inspired 
many and afiected others. 



"I have become extremely impressed by the many qualities she possesses that make her an 
outstanding musician, teacher, leader and scholar," says Mike Hewitt, assistant professor of music 
education. 

As a musician. Butler has enjoyed sharing her love of the arts through her involvement 
with most of the universitv's music groups. She recalls her final performance with the Univer- 
siry ot Maryland Symphony Orchestra as the culmination ot her music career. Her oboe pertor- 
mance o( Mahler's Ninth Syinpliony, a complicated yet powerful four-movement piece, revealed 
to her how far she has come as a musician. 

As a teacher, her passion for music education allows her to go above and beyond require- 
ments. During a rehearsal as a guest teacher with the College Park Youth Orchestra (CPYO), 
she intentionally left her oboe at home and brought a violin instead. 

"She was trying to learn this new instrument so she could understand the challenges it 
presented to young adults," says Robert Sprinkle, associate professor of pubhc poUcy and one 
of the founders of CPYO. 

It is this open-nundedness that makes Buder a successful leader who puts her all into every- 
thing she does. Butler was attracted to and accepted into the Gemstone Program housed in the 
Clark School of Engineering, one of the university's most distinguished academic initiatives. 
Buder was drawn to work on a project dealing with vaccination programs in a Third World 
countrN'. Buder became a key player in the project, always looking for creative ways to find 
solutions and make them happen. This desire to go outside her realm reaffirms what she believes. 

"People should think beyond their degrees and not be confined to what they do or the stan- 
dards that are out there," says Butler. "People have the potential to be whatever they want to be." 

By following their hearts, she beUeves people will make the world more interesting.
