GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 



He came to this country just six years ago, but Andres Garcia, a government and 
politics major who minors in sociology, is already living his American dream. 
His love of learning and desire to help others is the source of his achieve- 
ments as a student and undergraduate teaching assistant. 
"Andres is certainly one of three best undergraduate students 1 have had in almost 17 years - " 

at the Universitv' of Maryland," says Vladimir Tismaneanu, professor of government and poHtics 
and director of the Center for the Study of Post-Communist Societies. ^-^ 




Andres Garcia 



As a student, Garcia has studied East European politics, the rise and fall of Communism and 
new evolutionism and the power of the powerless. He wrote an in-depth paper on Vaclav 
Havel's philosophy of living in truth and is currendy doing research on the authoritarian past 
of Chile and East Germany. 

"Andres is a wonderful example of a young intellectual and highly cultivated student," 
Tismaneanu says. 

Lois Vietri, public policy internship program director in the Department ot Government and 
Politics, remarks that his academic and political sophistication put him several "cuts about the 
rest of his peers ... He's working for a small policy think tank and they're expecting him to 
behave as a young policy professional. He might even be getting published. I see a lot ot leader- 
ship potential in this young man." 

Had he remained in his native country of Santiago, Chile, Garcia says liis hirure as a lawyer 
would have been secure but predictable. Since coming to the United States, he says he has seen 
endless oppormnities and is already making plans for a career in acadeirua. At Maryland, in his role 
as a teaching assistant, Garcia works with students to help them understand very complex issues 
involving polirics and societies. The experience had him hooked on teaching the moment he 
started. Deeply committed to political change, he also thinks about returning to his home country. 

"Being a teaching assistant is very flilfilling," Garcia says. "I learn fi^om students as well 
because they express points of view that 1 may not have considered." 

As if his academic success wasn't enough, Garcia is also fluent in Spanish, German and 
English and was named Most Valuable Player for the Montgomery College soccer team, which 
won a regional and state championship in 2002. winter commencement

WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 




A Continuing Commitment 
to Excellence 

From its pre-Civil War roots as 
the state's first agricultural college 
and one of America's original land 
grant institutions, the University 
of Maryland has emerged as a 
public research university of 
national stature, highly regarded 
for its broad base of excellence in 
teaching and research. Maryland's 
beautiful 1,200-acre campus is in 
the heart of the 1-270 research 
corridor that is fueling a burgeon- 
ing information technology and 
biotechnology industry. 

The momentum of 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 of 
the nation's Top 20 public national 
universities, and the quality of our 
faculty — ^with three Nobel laure- 
ates, seven Pulitzer 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 Journalism, the 
College of Computer, Mathemati- 
cal and Physical Sciences, the 
College of Information Studies 
and the School of Public Policy — 
have been recognized by their 
peers and in various rankings as 
among the 25 best iii the n.ition. 



The breadth of this excellence is 
a source of pride for students, 
faculty and staff", and is endorse- 
ment for the university's flagship 
status among the state's institutions 
of higher education. 

The university also continues 
to move forward in the quahty 
of our students and the support 
of our faithful alumni. Freshman 
admission is increasingly competi- 
tive. More than 23,578 applica- 
tions were received for only 3,993 
spots in the Fall 2006 entering 
class. Once accepted students 
complete their academic journey, 
they will join a rapidly increasing 
family 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 
curriculum at both the undergrad- 
uate and graduate levels, e.xposing 
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.

concern. The university's locanon 
I 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 pubhc policy. Strong 
links to the scientific and techno- 
logical agencies and organizations 
of the federal government drive 
research in the environment, 
engineering, physics, computer sci- 
ence, life sciences and agriculture. 
Scholarship in the arts, humanities 
and social sciences is marked by 
the spirit oi' intellectual diversity 
and interdisciphnan,' collaboration.

research universities in the presn- 
gious 61 -member Association 
ot American Universities and 
the only pubHc institution in 
the Maryland-D.C. area with 
membership in the nation's most 
distinguished honor society. Phi

Total sponsored research and 
outreach revenue for fiscal year 
2006 totaled nearly S350 million. 
These fijnds for research, training 
and outreach come fi^oni a variety 
of sources including the federal 
government, state government, 
corporations and foundations. 

The OtSce ofTechnology 
Commercialization (OTC) at 
the University of Maryland was 
estabhshed in late 1986 to facilitate 
the transfer of information, life and 
physical science inventions devel- 
oped at the university- to business 
and industry. In its 21 -year history-, 
OTC has recorded more than 



1 ,700 technologies, secured more 
than 325 patents and licensed 
more than 900 technologies, 
generating more than $16.3 
million in technologv' transfer 
income. OTC collaborates 
with university offices such as the 
Maryland Technology Enterprise 
Institute, the Technology Advance- 
ment Program, the Small Business 
Development Center and the 
Dingman Center for Entrepre- 
neurship. These partnerships 
demonstrate the university's broad 
range of technologN' transfer ser- 
vices, R&D tundmg. partnering 
opportunities and entrepreneurial 
capabilities to the local commu- 
nity, industry and government. 

History 

The University' of Maryland was 
founded in 1807 in Baltimore 
as a taculty-owned College of 
Medicine. The medical school 
w'as considered one of the top 
schools in the country', attracting 
notable professors and lecturers 
from throughout the w-orld. In 
Its beginning, tuition cost $140, 
grades were sent home weekly to 
parents, and students could obtain 
room and board for $300 annually. 

Five years later, the growing 
institution was renamed the 
University of Maryland. Despite 
the name, the university w-as not 
considered a state institution as 
it was still owned and operated 
by faculty'. Baltimore College of 
Dental Surgery, the first dental 
school in the world, became a 



The University Is On the Move 

Faculty Awards Abound: Along with three Nobel laureates, seven 
Puhtzer Prize wmners, 40 members of national acaden-ues and scores

pus sustainability issues over the past six months. President CD. Mote, 
Jr., was among the academic leaders to sign the American College and 
University' Presidents CUmate Commitment. Grist magazine named 
the university a Top 1 5 Green College, noting that students voted to 
raise student fees in order to pay for clean energy. Maryland's entry in

Germany's Technical University' of Darmstadt. The Terrapin team of 
architecture and engineering students won the BP Solar People's 
Choice Award. 

New Facilities, Greater Opportunities: Our School of Public 
Health, the university's first new school since 1981, will research 
human behavior and the social and enviromnental factors that are at 
the root of many of today's major health problems, including obesity, 
cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The new Bioscience 
Research Building will house the Pathogen Research Institute. Its 50 
faculty members will work to find new ways to treat infections, new 
methods of tracking and predicting the spread of diseases, and even 
new strategies for biodefense-related public policy. 

PuUing Rank: The university' was ranked in the Top 20 of public 
research universities by U.S. \k'u>s €- World Repwrt in 2007. The maga-

part ot the university' in 1841), 
awarding the first Doctor of 
Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree 
in 1841. 

In 1859. the Maryland 
Agricultural College, which 
would evolve into the University 
of Maryland, College Park, was 
opened under a charter secured by 
a group of Maryland planters in 
1 856. 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 
sciences, 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 
institution 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 
population, excellence in programs 
and curricula, and the burgeoning 
of the University of Maryland, 
College Park, into a nationally 
recognized 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 
flagship status with a mandate to 
become one of the pre-eminent 
research universities in the nation. 

The AluiTini Association 

With alumni 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; dinner cruises;

the university and to each other. 
All graduating seniors and success- 
ful masters and doctoral candidates 
receive a one-year free member-

The Hall of Fame induction 
ceremony takes place once every 
five years, with the most recent 
group of honorees inciucted m 
June 20(.)5. 



Customs of Commencement 

Early conuiiencement 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 follow- 
ing morning, crowds gathered to 
watch the young graduates parade. 
It was a gala social occasion, attract- 
ing not only friends and relatives, 
but the fashionable eUte of the 
day. At the ceremony, prayers were 
recited, speeches were made, and 
honorar)' 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 smdents and facultv' 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 buUdings. 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 



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 hst 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 

Journalism: Crimson 

Law: Purple 

Library Science: Lemon 

Medicine: Green 

Music: Pink 

Nursing: Apricot 

Orator)',Speech: Silver Gray 

Pharmacy: Ohve 

Physical Education: Sage Green 

Philanthropy: Rose 

Philosophy: Dark Blue 

Pubhc Administration, Foreign 
Service: Peacock Blue 

Pubhc Health: Salmon 

Science: Golden YeUow 

Social Work: Citron 

Theology and Diviniry: Scarlet 

Veterinary Sciences: Gray 

The tassel may also be colored 
to represent an academic discipline 
or it ma)' 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. 

Student Marshals 

Elected through a nomination 
process, student marshals are senior 
leaders who play an important 
role in the graduation ceremony. 
Student marshals assist in organizing 
the thousands of graduates, leading 
them smoothly through the 
conuiiencement procession . They 
also supply extra caps and hoods, 
and bobby pins to keep headwear 
secure. Fall 2007 marshals are hsted 
on page 69 of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

Since 1910, members of the 
graduating class have supported 
a senior gift designed to com- 
memorate their college experi- 
ence. Traditionally the gift serves 
as a contribution to the campus 
community that forever hnks 
alumni with the university. When 
you see the Testudo statue on 
McKeldin Mall, the clock outside 
of Stamp, or the Henson statue 
and memorial garden, you're 
looking at Senior Class Gifts. 
These, and other gifts scattered 
around the university, are tributes 
to years ot hard work and to 
unwavering love for Alma Mater. 
Now. It's your turn to take part 
in the tradition that puts us 
"heads and shells above the rest."

This year s gift will be the 
Class of 2007-2008 Lounge. It 
will transform an emptN' corridor 
in the newly renovated Adele H. 
Stamp Student Union into a flinc- 
tional and aesthetically pleasing 
space with new tlirniture, artwork 
and flat-screen televisions. The 
lounge will establish a trend of 
maintaming the Stamp Union as a 
modern hub for student life.

Acadetnic 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 1,30 
undergraduate majors, 80 doctoral 
programs, 100 master's 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 arc two distinct t^pes: 
the practitioner's degree and the 
research degree. The first type rep- 
resents advanced training for the 
practice of various professions, 
principally 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 
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 (D.D.S.). 

The Universin- of MaryLind 
conveys the Doctor ofVeterinary 
Medicine (D.V.M.) to 
approximately 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 t\-pe is the research 
doctorate representing prolonged 
periods of advanced study. A 
dissertation that usually 
accompanies the study is intended 
to contribute substantially to the 
body of knowledge on the subject- 
The most important of these, the 
Doctor of Philosophy, no longer 
has an implication of philosophy 
for Its holder, 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 exami- 
nation 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 



conferred in America m 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 Science (B.S.) 
in 1862.
