WINTER COMMENCEMEI 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



Maryland's Momentum 

Some recent highlights that identify 
the University' of Maryland as a world- 
class institution with an impact on 
scientific discovery, education, and 
the performing and creative arts: 

Rankings: Mars'land ranks 37th worldwide 
among research universities, according to a 
survey by Shanghai s Jiao Tong University. 
And the 2008 U.S. News & IVorld Report 
rankings put Mar^'land in the Top 20 of 
public research universities, with 31 of our 
academic programs in the Top 1 and 86 in 
the Top 25. 

Faculty: Our faculty' regularly earn national 
and inter national recognition for their excel- 
lence. Maryland currendy has three Nobel 
laureates, seven PuUtzer Prize recipients 
and more than 30 members of the most 
prestigious national academies. 

Private Giving: We've passed the halfway 
mark — S557 million and counting — in Grfiif 
E.xpeciiUioiis, The Campaign for Maryland. 
A priority goal in the $1 bUlion campaign 
is to raise more than S350 million for 
student scholarships. 

Going Green: last spring, the University 
of Maryland became a charter member of 
the American College & Universiry Presi- 
dents Climate Commitment, pledging to 
significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions 
and to move toward a goal of carbon neutral- 
it>'. As part of this commitment to sustainabil- 
iry, the university recently completed the 
first comprehensive greenhouse gas iiwentory 
of campus. 




Informarion Advantage: Our new 

iSchool, Maryland's highly ranked College 
of hiformation Studies, pioneers research 
and problem solving on human-computer 
mteraction, information search and retrieval, 
computer interfaces that are designed with 
children in mind, and more. 

M Square Update: In early 2009, the 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration Center for Weather and 
Climate Prediction wUl open in M Square, 
the university's 124-acre research park. This 
new facility will join university researchers 
with government experts to study weather 
prediction and climate change. 

Pioneering Public Health: A School 
of Pubhc Health was estabUshed in 2007, 
serving state and national pubhc health needs 
for research in several critical areas. The 
school's Herschel S. Horowitz Center for 
Health Literacy will advocate for improved 
health literacy and the elimination of health 
disparities and for health literacy research and 
education. 



Students Shine Bright: Our Mock Tri,al 
Team took first place in the American Mock 
Trial Associations national championship, 
while Maryland's Academic Quiz Team won 
the National Academic Quiz Tournament 
Division 1 contest, beating out more than 
two dozen competitors. Another team of 
undergraduates, in only its second year of 
competition, won first place for its design, 
construction and use of an autonomous 
submersible vehicle capable of navigating 
realistic underwater niissions. 

On Stage and Off: The Grammy-winning 
Kronos Quartet's residency at the Clarice 
Smith PerforiTiing Arts Center continued this 
fall, including two concerts offered as part of 
UM's"A Semester on War and the Repre- 
sentation ofWar" and extensive work with 
School of Music students and faculty. The 
ensemble's residency began in September 
2007 and will continue through the 
2009-2010 season.

GRADUATING STUDENT SPEAKER 




Sergio Guerra 



Sergio Ckierra is building upon his parents" dreams. 
His tainily tied civil war in Angola, where gunfire exploded his fathers eardrums. 
After emigrating to the poor industrial town of Elizabeth, N.J., his father earned an 
associate "s degree and his mother earned her GED while pulling double shifts at a 
factory. Guerra followed their example and pursued education as well, rather than succumb to 
the poverts- and violence surrounding him. 

"I chose to take the hand my parents had offered me ... and make something of myself as 
they had so passionately urged me to do as I was growing up," he says. 

Choosing Maryland over the University of North CaroUna and Boston University, the 
anthropology major has relied on intelligence, hard work and self-discipline to not only succeed 
but also excel. 

As one of the top students in Maryland's demanding Honors Program, Sergio has achieved 
a nearly flawless grade point average while juggling a part-time job. In the middle of this past 
semester, he stepped in as a teaching assistant for hitroduction to Biological Anthropology. 

His efforts have garnered him recognition on the Dean s List and a Presidential Award for 
Excellence in Academics. 

Outside the classroom, Sergio captains a club soccer team and volunteers for work on cancer 
studies. Fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese, he is also a member of the Portuguese Lan- 
guage Association. 

In January, he will travel to Angola as part of a research project examining a link between salt 
and stroke. The study wiU compare samples fi-om Angola with samples fi-om African Americans 
in lowland North Carolina. 

Sergio's post-graduation plans also include an internship with a pharmaceutical research 
company and graduate school. Ultimately he plans to earn a doctorate in forensics, considering 
Johns Hopkins and New York universities for graduate studies. 

"I have faced opposition and hardships my entire life and have no doubt that I will become 
everything I've ever wanted to be," he says. "As they say, 'Life's what you make it,' and I'm giving 
it all I've got." 



IVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER 



John C. Mather's sojourn among the stars has proven a boon for mankind and its quest to 
understand the origin of the universe. 
A senior astrophysicist m the Observational Cosmolog\' Laboratory at NASA's Goddard 
Space Flight Center and adjunct professor at the universits'. Mather led a 1 ,(J(.)()-person team 
that conducted satellite-based experiments, which strengthened support for the Big Bang theory. 

NASA's Cosmic Background E.xplorer satellite, or COBE, measured latent radiation daring 
from the universe's formarion an esrimated 13+ billion years ago.Three years after the E.xplorer's 
launch in 1989, the team announced that it had tbund withm that radiation a clue for how clus- 
ters of galaxies formed, stretching hundreds of millions of light years across the universe. The dis- 
cover)- earned Mather and University of California, Berkeley researcher and professor George F. 
Smoot the 2006 Nobel Prize in physics. 

Born in Roanoke, Va., he received a bachelor's degree in physics from Swarthmore College in 
Pennsylvania and a doctorate in physics from the University of California, Berkeley. 

Mather serves as senior project scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope. Scheduled for 
launch in 2013, it is being developed as the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. 

He has been appointed to advisorv' and working groups for the Narional Academy of Sciences, 
the Narional Science Foundation and the Center for Astrophysical Research in the Antarctic. 

Mather's awards include a NASA Distinguished Service Medal (2007); the Robinson Prize in 
Cosmetology; Newcastle University (2()()6-07); and the Rumford Prize from the American Acad- 
emy of Arts and Sciences (1996). 

He holds professional memberships with the National Academy of Sciences, the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Astronomical Society, the American Physical Society 
and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. 

His 1996 book, Tlw Icry First Light, chronicles the design and launch of COBE. In 2007, Time 
magazine listed him among its "100 Most Influential People in the World." 

When asked what advice he would offer Maryland graduates, he responded: "My personal code 
is lite is too long not to do what you want. It's too short not to do what you want. So find out 
what you want and give it your heart, and who knows what wonders may be in store?"

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 
pubhc 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 fliehng 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 
quality, 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 pubhc 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 Phihp 
Merrill College of Journalism, the 
College of Computer, Mathemati- 
cal and Physical Sciences, the 
College of Information Studies 
and the School of Pubhc Policy — 
have been recognized by their 
peers and in various rankings as 
among the 25 best in the nation. 



The breadth of this excellence is 
a source of pride for students, fac- 
ulty and staff, and is endorsement 
for the university's flagship status 
among the state's institutions of 
higher education. 

The university also continues 
to move forward in the quality of 
our students and the support of our 
faithfiil alumni. Freshman admission 
IS increasingly competitive. More 
than 28, 1 50 fireshman apphcations 
were received for just over 4,000 
spots in the Fall 2008 entering class. 

Once accepted students 
complete their academic journey, 
they wUl join a rapidly increasing 
tamily 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 conunitment 
to quahty education in a research 
envirormient 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, 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. 

Faculty at the University of 
Maryland, in all fields of knowl- 
edge, are engaged at the highest 
levels of national and international

concern. The universiry's location 
near the center of federal pohcy- 
making and international political 
and economic activity' enables it to 
play an active role in research and 
analysis of public policy. Strong 
Hnks 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 of intellectual diversity 
and interdisciplinary collaboration. 
Marv'land 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. 



Total sponsored research and 
outreach revenue for fiscal year 
2008 topped $400 miUion. These 
fiinds for research, training and 
outreach come fi^om a variety 
of sources including the federal 
government, state government, 
corporations and foundations. 

The Office of Technology 
Commercialization (OTC) at 
the University of Maryland was 
established 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 22-year history, 
OTC has recorded more than 
1 ,700 technologies, secured more 
than 325 patents and licensed 
more than 900 technologies, gen- 
erating more than $16.3 million in 
technology transfer income. OTC 
collaborates with university offices 
such as the Maryland Technology 




Enterprise Institute, the Technol- 
ogy Advancement Program, the 
Small Business Development 
Center and the Dingman Center 
for Entrepreneurship. These 
partnerships demonstrate the 
university's broad range of technol- 
ogy transfer services, research and 
development funding, partnering 
opportunities and entrepreneurial 
capabilities to the local community, 
industry and government. 

History 

The University of Maryland was 
founded in 1807 in Baltimore as 
a faculty-ovnied College of 
Medicine. The medical school 
was considered one of the top 
schools in the country, attracting 
notable professors and lecturers 
from throughout the world. 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 was not 
considered a state institution as it 
was stiU owned and operated by 
faculty'. Baltimore College of 
Dental Surgery, the first dental 
school in the world, became a part 
of the university in 1840, awarding 
the first Doctor of Dental Surgery- 
degree in 1841. 

In 1859, the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College, which would 
e\-olve 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 sciences, English 
and mathematics. After a disastrous 
fire on campus m 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 follow-ing 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 
universities and colleges to form 
the University System of Mary- 
land, and College Park secured its 
flagship status with a mandate to 
become one of the pre-eminent 
research universities in the nation.

'ERSITY OF MARYLAND 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



Customs of Commencement 

Early commencement ceremomes 
at the University of Maryland were 
marked with great fanfare and cele- 
bration. The facultN' 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 fasliionable elite of the 
day. At the ceremony, prayers were 
recited, speeches were made, and 
honorary degrees were awarded 
to distinguished figures fiom 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 gowTis 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 CivU War, most 
students at American universities 
wore caps and gowns daily while 
in residence. These varied in design 
until thev were standardized bv 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 scholars academic 
disciphne. 
A List of deparmient colors follows: 

Agriculmre: Maize 

Arts, Letters, Humanities: 
White 

Business Admimstration, 
Conunercial Science: Drab 

Dentistry: Lilac 

Economics: Copper 

Education: Light Blue 

Engineering: Orange 

Fine Arts, Architecture: Brown 

Forestry: Russet 

Home Economics: Maroon 

Journalism: Crimson 

Law: Purple 

Librar^' Science: Lemon 

Medicine: Green 

Music: Pink 

Nursing: Apricot 

Oratory, Speech: SUver Gray 

Pharmacy: OUve 

Physical Education: Sage Green 

Philanthropy: Rose 

Philosophy: Dark Blue 

Pubhc Administration. Foreign 

Service: Peacock Blue 

Pubhc Health: Salmon 

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. OiEcially, the 
tassel is permitted "to he 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 commencement 
procession. They also supply e.xtra 
caps and hoods, and bobby pins to 
keep headwear secure. December 
2008 marshals are listed on page 68 
of this booklet. 

Senior Gift 

This year's gift is the renovation of 
the Morrill Quad (in the center of 
Morrill, Tydings, LeFrak. Taliaferro 
and Shoemaker Halls). In front of 
Morrill Hall, the campus' oldest 
building, is the site of the original 
campus quadrangle; it is being 
redeveloped to help preserve the 
history of the University of Mar)'- 
land.The Class of 2008-2009 has 
chosen to honor one of our cam- 
pus' oldest treasures wdth one of 
our campus' oldest traditions. 

If you would like to be a part 
of this tradition of philanthropy 



by donating to the Senior Class 
Gift call 301.314.GRAD for 
more information. 

Academic Degrees 

A degree is awarded for the 
successfiil completion of a course 
of study. There are more than 
1 .600 diff'erent academic degrees 
currendy conferred by colleges 
and universities nationwide. The 
University of Maryland oS"ers 
degrees in 127 undergraduate 
majors, 75 doctoral programs, 
1 (1 1 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 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 ofVeterinar)' 
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. 

The University of Maryland 
conveys the Doctor of Veterinary 
Medicine to approximately 90 



WINTER COMMENCEMENT 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND 



Students each year in a program 
that was instituted in 1 980. 
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 
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 successfiilly 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 and 
Master of Science 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 in 1 642 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 and Bachelor of Science 
in 1862.
