A message from Dr. John Slaughter, Chancellor 

It is my privilege as Chancellor to welcome you to the University 
of Maryland at College Park and to extend to you my best wishes for 
a successful and enriching experience in the coming academic year. 

The UMCP campus offers you a community that is culturally and 
ethnically diverse— that reflects, in fact, society as a whole. Within 
this diversity, we try to create a positive atmosphere in which you can 
learn about yourself and others, and we have a variety of support pro- 
grams to aid you in the process. The campus offers a choice among 
many outstanding programs of study and extensive academic advis- 
ing to help you to pursue the subjects that interest you. Our profes- 
sional programs, pre-professional concentrations, and various majors 
provide many options to explore different career directions. 

My care and concern for you as a student is that you use your time 
to learn and to grow. I hope you will take advantage of some of the 
many opportunities for intellectual and social enrichment that the cam- 
pus offers, and I encourage you to contribute your abilities to enhanc- 
ing the campus community. 

The University of Maryland at 
College Park! 

Histoiry, Mission and Traditions. 

The University of Maryland College Park was chartered in 1856 as 
the Maryland Agricultural College under a provision secured by a group 
of Maryland planters. After a disastrous fire in 1912, the State ac- 
quired control of the college and bore the cost of rebuilding. The pre- 
sent form of The University of Maryland dates from a 1920 act of the 
Maryland state legislature which united the State-owned institution 
at College Park and the professional schools in Baltimore thus creating 
The University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) and The University 
of Maryland at Baltimore (UMAB) campuses. Later the University add- 
ed three other campuses: Baltimore County (UMBC) at Catonsville; 
Eastern Shore (UMES) at Princess Anne; and the worldwide Universi- 
ty College (UMUC), headquartered at College Park. 

The University of Maryland at College Park is spread over 1,378 
acres which encompass an excess of 200 buildings. Malls, courtyards, 
and groves dot the campus. 

The 35,000 students, 28,000 undergraduates, come from a variety 
of backgrounds ranging from the country or small towns to cities and 
suburbs; from the cosmopolitan to the provinces. They bring varied 
ideas, carry contrasting values, follow different lifestyles, pursue 
divergent goals. Much of what you can learn at College Park, you can 
learn from your fellow students. 

The university also has educational opportunities of exceptional 
breadth and diversity. 110 undergraduate majors are available. Students 
also have the option of creating their own program of individual study 
with the assistance of a faculty advisor. 

The Mission of the College Park 

As the State's 1862 land-grant institution and the flagship campus 
of the University of Maryland system, College Park bears a major 
responsibility for public higher education in Maryland. The mission 
of the Campus is to provide the opportunity for high quality 
undergraduate and graduate education to all the citizens of the State 
at an affordable cost. College Park offers the State's most compre- 
hensive undergraduate program and is its major center for graduate 
education and research. The Campus takes special responsibility for 
the dissemination of knowledge, expertise, and culture to the citizens 
of the State through its extensive public service programs. This three- 
part mission is based on the idea that each of its elements is com- 
plemented and enhanced by the other, yielding an institution of signifi- 
cant strength and of great importance to the State of Maryland and 
the Nation. To enhance the achievement of this mission, the Campus 
is committed to improving the quality of life for its students, faculty, 
and staff. 

Graduate School 

The University of Maryland College Park Graduate program is an 
internationally recognized research institution with 83 master's and 
62 doctoral programs. At present there are 7,400 graduate students. 
Presently, the College Park campus is in the midst of one of the greatest 
concentrations of research facilities and intellectual talent in the na- 
tion. In addition to outside facilities, the university library system in- 
cludes major research libraries on both the College Park and Baltimore 

The university recognizes the high cost of education today and makes 
every effort to offer financial assistance, such as, remission of fees, 
assistantships, workstudy and fellowships. 

Those who have earned or will earn a bachelor's degree at a college 
or university in the U.S., or the equivalent of this degree in another 
country, can be considered for admission to the Graduate School at 
College Park. Applications may be obtained by calling 454-4006 or 
by writing to the Office of Graduate Admissions, 2107 South Ad- 
ministration. For more information about the Graduate school, ad- 
mission standards, requirements or process, call 454-3141. The of- 
fice hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30-Noon and 1:00-4:30. 


Question: What would college life be without traditions? 

Answer: A DRAG! Well, here at Maryland we don't want to let 
anyone down, so over the years we have devek)ped many Terrapin 

Your college life begins on the first day of New Student Orienta- 
tion. The program is your chance to get academically advised and 
registered. In addition to advising and registration you will learn 
anything and everything you've always wanted to know about Maryland, 
but were afraid to ask. Parents, we invite you to partake in your own 
Parent Orientation. 

Your first few weeks of classes are busy ones. There is Freshman 
Student Convocation, New Resident Orientation, First Look Fair, 
Transpo Fair, Craft Fair, Health Fair and, if that is not enough, the 
nationally recognized Terp Football team takes the field. 

Here, at the University of Maryland, we also have a winning tradi- 
tion. Our football and mens and womens basketball teams are national- 
ly ranked. Sports such as lacrosse, tennis, soccer and gymnastics do 
very well in the ACC conference as well as nationally. 

Incorporated into the athletic atmosphere are events like Homecom- 
ing, the annual Bon Fire, and Parents Weekend. Each of these events 
revolves around the football season. 

During the basketball season we have the beginning of Spirit 
semester. Spirit Semester is sponsored by the Residence Halls Associa- 
tion and involves all dorm residents. 

Have we built up your excitement for Maryland yet? No? You don't 
like social events. Well, maybe, you're interested in a good game of 
trivia? Here is some Maryland trivia for you: 

1. What is the oldest academic building? 

2. Where does Maryland's resident piano-playing ghost reside? 

3. How can you be assured of passing your finals? 

4. Where is a concrete sUde rule located? 

5. Where was the first Ritchie Colosieum? 

Answers: 1. Morrill Hall 

2. Marie Mount Hall 

3. Rub Testudo's nose. He is located in front of 
McKeldin Library. 

4. The new Engineering Building was designed to look 
like a slide rule on the front and a calculator on the 

5. Annapolis Hall. Now it is a male dorm and soon to 
be renovated. 

Now you can be assured of winning a competitive game of Maryland 
Trivial Pursuit. 

Maryland Traditions don't end with the fall semester. As you move 
through the exciting days of the fall semester, with its harvest moons, 
windy and rainy days and snow falls, you will welcome the signs of 
the spring semester. A definite sign is the transition of Byrd Stadium. 
Here sweat shirt clad football fans are transformed into oil-covered 
sun worshippers as Byrd Stadium becomes Byrd Beach. With the warm 
weather arrival we not only see transition but a one-week migration 
to Lauderdale, the Keys, Miami, or anywhere but College Park. IT'S 

Spring semester brings warmth, romance and fun. Maybe you'll find 
a spark of romance as you walk through the Kissing Tunnel located 
on the South Chapel Lawn. As the heat intensifies and it's harder to 
make your "prime sunning hour" classes, Greek Week and April Fest 
arrive to tempt you even more. Once you've recuperated from the "rites 
of spring" activities, the books start calling your name. 

Finals week has begun and your home becomes the Undergraduate 
Library's 24 hour room. Once finals are over and the dorms close, 
we say farewell 'til next fall and get ready for the new Freshman class. 
To those of you graduating, we thank you for being part of a Maryland

The University Seal is an adaption of the Great Seal of 1648 of the 
state of Maryland. The Seal bears a shield of the coats of arms of the 
Calvert and Crossland families, Maryland's first settlers. Topping the 
shield are an earl's coronet and a helmet. The farmer and fisherman 
on either side of the shield symbolize the bounty of Maryland's land 
and waters. The three dates — 1807, 1856, and 1920 — represent 
significant developments in the University's history: founding of the 
Maryland Medical College in Baltimore, chartering of the Maryland 
Agricultural College in College Park, and the merger of these two 
campuses into the University of Maryland.

Around Campus 

What are UMaps? 

UMaps are a series of six illustrated guides to areas of study, 
jobs, organization, and activities at UMCP. The guides organize 
campus options and opportunities into six interest areas. AT LEAST 
one of them is JUST for YOU! 

UMaps can help you to: 

• find the right major 

• meet other students who share your interests 

• explore some potential careers 

• get involved in some activities that really interest you 

• get some career-related work experience 

• take some interesting courses 

Here are some ways students have found UMaps to be helpful: 

"I don't know what I want to do when I graduate." 

It is important that you begin career exploration early, at the 
same time you choose courses and extracurricular activities. Each 
UMap lists career possibilities which you can investigate as you look 
at internship, volunteer, and part-time job opportunities that relate 
to your interests. 

"I don't know what courses to take." 

UMaps can help you find interesting courses open to non-majors 
which fulfill USP requirements and do not have any prerequisite 
courses or knowledge. Because each UMap list courses across divi- 
sions, they can help you avoid stereotyping academic departments. 

"I have no idea what to ms^or in." 

Look over the areas of study listed on each UMap you have 
selected. You'll find that some of them overlap: this may be a good 
starting point for you. Why not take a course or two in some of 
those departments to see which appeal to you? 

You can start to use UMaps by attending the Stamp Union Party 
on the next page. Pick up your own personal UMaps at the Office 
of Commuter Affairs, 1195 Stamp Union or the Career Develop- 
ment Center, 3121 Hombake - South Wing. 

Stamp Union Party 

A party in the Stamp Union is pictured below. Students with similar 
interests have drawn together in separate corners of the room. 



Practical and straightforward, 
these students enjoy outdoor 
work, physical activity, and 
working with tools, machines 
and animals. 


These students are analytical 
and inquisitive, prefer solving 
abstract problems, and like 
theoretical scientific work. 


These students are systematic 
and organized, and they hke to 
work with data and numbers. 


Independent and creative, these £(^ 
students are attracted to the 
visual and performing arts and 


Enthusiastic and persuasive, 
these students enjoy positions 
of leadership, public affairs, and 


These students are helpful and 
friendly, and they enjoy working 
with and for others through 
teaching, athletics, and health. 


1. Which corner of the room would you instinctively be drawn to because it contained 
students with interests most similar to yours? Write the name of that group here 

2. After 15 minutes, everyone in the corner that you had first selected leaves to go 
get a pizza. Which group would you choose next? Write the name of that group here 

3. After another 15 minutes, the second group decides to go to the Vous. Of the re- 
maining groups, which would you Hke to join now? Write the name of that group here 

'This exercise was originally developed by Richard N. Bolles of The Quick Job 
Hunting Map. He adapted it from the Placement Manual of the VMCP Career 
Development Center. We encourage you to check out the further resources of the 
CDC Library, 3121 Hombake.

Breaking Away 

Entering college is a new experience that contains exciting as well 
as threatening adventures. Going into a new collegiate setting is much 
like traveling in a foreign land. There is a different language to adapt 
to, new buildings to locate, and new friends and acquaintances to make. 
College is an exciting time, but it is also a time filled with major ad- 
justments and some disappointments. 

Now is the time for you as a student to begin to take responsibility 
for yourself and your college experience. It is important for you to 
find out about the many services and resources that Maryland has to 
offer. How do you start becoming a part of the University of Maryland 

Obviously the first thing that you have to become interested in and 
do well in is your academics. In spite of the many outside activities 
that are available at Maryland, your academics are the most impor- 
tant reason that you are here. It is important for you to obtain good 
study skills and do well in your classes. The very first step in becom- 
ing a college student is to become involved with your classes, and learn 
to be an active participant in your education. 

It is important to understand however, not all of your education 
takes place inside of the classroom. The learning that takes place out- 
side of the classroom is very important to your total educational 
development. An important part of your college experience will come 
from involvement in your college community. Meeting students from 
different places, understanding and accepting value systems that are 
contrary to the values you believe in, becoming involved in develop- 
ment services and clubs can give you many skills that will help you 
become a better rounded individual. It is important for you to equip 
yourself with social skills, organizational skills, and a better under- 
standing into the nature of human beings. 

Welcome to the campus community. I'm glad that you have chosen

It's Not Only What You Know 
It's What You Do 

Go to college, study a little ... or a lot, have some fun, get a job 
... is a typical way to view a college education. If only it were that 
simple! A few of the best and brightest college students can merrily 
waltz through their college years and wind up with a great job after 
graduation. Most of us, however, do well to give some thought and 
planning to our college years. 

Often, there is a tendency to choose a college major based on 
"Where the jobs appear to be." Nothing could be further from the 
truth. Answering hard questions such as "What to major in" and 
"What careers are best for me" requires serious thinking . . . and work. 

Identifying, examining, exploring what you like (interests) . . . what 
you do well (skiUs) . . . and what you care about (values) is the first 
step to making good career decisions. Here's a few other tips. 

• Learn more about specific careers by getting acquainted with 
resources in the Career Development Center library (books, audio & 
videotapes, files, computerized information) . . . talking to faculty . . . 
attending Career Fairs and other activities about careers . . . inter- 
viewing UMCP Alumni Career Mentors. 

• Talk with Counselors in the Career Development Center (3rd 
Floor Hombake Library), Counseling Center (Shoemaker Hall), or 
Undergraduate Advising Center (1117 Hombake Library) to start. 

• Experience your career choice before graduation part-time or sum- 
mer jobs (Job Referral Service, 3rd Floor Hombake Library) ... in- 
ternships or cooperative education experience (experiential Learning 
Programs, 0119 Hombake Library.) 

Make contact with these offices early in your college years - don't 
wait until it's too late or you get so involved in other aspects of col- 
lege that you're one of those who graduate and say, "I never knew 
there was someone to help." 

And what about faculty and T.A.'s? Get to know them! Teachers 
and staff at UMCP can make a difference by helping you put together 
college courses and opportunities that fit your career interests, assist 
in special class projects that can give you valuable skills to get a bet- 
ter job, help you make job contacts, write important letters of recom- 
mendation, and help you have fun while you're doing it! 

On a campus the size of College Park, it's easy to lose yourself in 
the crowd. It takes awareness and assertiveness. Start now. Get to 
know the faculty, staff and services that are here to help you make 
your college years the beginning of an exciting career future! It's 
not only what you know, it's what you do.

Important Notice! 

DO NOT go on to the month of December until you have your 
UMaps! If you don't have them yet, turn back to September and the 
Stamp Union Party. Or, when you have your UMaps, look over the 
ARE YOU-CAN YOU-LIKE TO sections on the upper left of each 
of the six UMaps and select the ones that sound most like you. 

Here are some ways students have found UMaps to be helpful: 

''I'm totally overwhelmed by the size of this place; I just 
can't take it all in." 

The sheer size of the campus and the numbers of options are 
bewildering to many students. UMaps can reduce the confusion because 
they organize the campus according to areas of interest. Look over 
the listings on the UMaps you have selected. By starting with these, 
you can get to feel comfortable quickly because you are apt to meet 
other students who share your interests. 

"I just want to get through and get a job." 

Taking a "tunnel vision" attitude makes it more difficult to enter 
the job market. It's wise to get a variety of experiences while you're 
here which will enhance the value of your degree. UMaps list organiza- 
tions, activities, internships, volunteer and co-op placements, and part- 
time job options, along with the campus resources available to help 
you locate them.

Staiting the Perfect 

This is a time of contradictions. New Year's resolutions may already 
be broken, but goals for the new semester are just being defined. 

The problem is that these contradictions raise anxiety. We end up 
neither resolving the old nor moving ahead with the new. One of the 
most common causes is by the irrational beliefs we hold about goals. 
For example: 

times have you heard someone say "This semester I'm going to study 
four hours every day and all day Sunday." Or "I'm not going to argue 
with my roommate for the rest of the year." There's nothing wrong 
with challenging yourself to do better, but a reasonable goal doesn't 
demand perfection, 

more uplifting to say "I'm going to be a better human being," but 
it is more helpful to be specific and concrete: "This semester I'll try 
to be more assertive with my roommate about partymg in the room 
late at night." After all, why should you expect yourself to achieve 
your life goals in one semester? 

promised yourself to stick with your diet. But then there's this party 
with a pizza that's just oozing cheese— and you can't resist. Or you 
get a B on the paper you were sure would get you an A. It is natural 
to feel disappointed, but if secretly the feeling is dark despair, you've 
probably found a way to convince yourself that you are a complete 
failure and unworthy of regard because of your lapse. 

What these beliefs have in common is the expectation that we be 
perfect. Look at how you feel about your hopes for the new semester. 
If you are more anxious and overwhelmed than hopeful you may have 
a problem. Ask yourself what will happen if you don't accomplish 
everything. Then ask yourself if it is true. For example, is it true that 
going off your diet means you are a failure? Is it true that your parents 
will literally kill you if you don't have a 4.0? These questions will help 
lessen the anxiety. Then it is easier to handle the disappointment, set 
more reasonable goals, and move on.

Facing Changing Values 

The next four years of college will be some of the most stimulating 
and challenging of your life. You will be exposed to new ideas, dif- 
ferent people, alternative lifestyles and opposing belief systems— all 
of which can be very exciting. But it can also be somewhat scary. 

For along with these new experiences comes a questioning of 
yourself, your values, and beliefs about the world. There will be times 
when you feel confused and anxious about this new information- 
times when you question who you are and what you believe. 

In the face of this confusion, keep in mind that you do have choices. 
Sometimes your confusion and questioning will lead you to modify 
your existing beliefs and values while other times you will become 
more committed to them. Also remember that being in a state of con- 
fusion and questioning about yourself and your values is okay. After 
all, questioning is the first stage of learning; it is the first step to becom- 
ing a better person. 

Finally, if you find it difficult to sort through this new information 
and where you stand, don't be afraid to ask for help. Many of the peo- 
ple around you are going through or have gone through similar ex- 
periences. Talking to ft-iends, professors, residence hall staff, counseling 
center staff, or others in the campus community can give you a sense 
of perspective, make you feel better, and help you realize that you're 
not alone.

A Note on Nutrition 

The Department of Dining Services provides students with nutri- 
tionally balanced meals, a varied menu, and special dinner evenings. 
Selections at breakfast include various styles of eggs, traditional 
breakfast meats, cereals, fruits, and bakery fresh doughnuts and 
pastries. Casseroles, a deli menu and a grill line are featured at lunch. 
A complete salad bar and yogurt bar are available at lunch and din- 
ner. For dinner, students find two hot entrees, a vegetarian entree, 
two v^etables and on campus freshly baked breads and desserts. Three 
fresh fruits are available at all meals. 

Special menu preparations are available for students on special diets. 
Diet counseling appointments are held in room 1150 South Campus 
Dining Hall to discuss the student's menu needs and Dining Services 
menu items. Every time a fried entree is on the menu a baked entree 
is also available. Many students find their diets manageable without 
special preparations simply by understanding all of the menu alter- 
natives. The Dining Services News is published weekly and contains 
the week's menu. This enables all students to plan their own diets. 

Bon Appetit!

Choosing A Major 

Haven't chosen a major yet? Thinking about changing out of the 
major you're already in? You have lots of company among your fellow 
students! It's estimated that almost half oi the entering freshman class 
haven't chosen a major— even if they say they have. And, on the 
average, students at College Park change majors two or three times 
while they're here. So there's certainly nothing unusual about not hav- 
ing a major right away or about changing to a new one. 

Unfortunately, some students take more than is really necessary to 
make their choice, mostly because they wait for "inspiration" to strike 
or for something to "interest" them. It just doesn't work that way! 
Choosing a major takes time, some persistence, a lot of decision 
making, and a personal interest in your own future. It can also be 
a lot of fun! 

Here are some "tips" to think about. Go see an advisor or career 
counselor for more information and assistance: 

• Learn a lot about yourself. Think about interests, skills, abilities. 
Think about what you would like to do with your life after get- 
ting your degree. Look to see if you can tie all of these together 
and "fit" them into some major offered here. 

• Find out about the job market and the kinds of opportunities 
you can expect to find once you graduate in a particular major. 

• Consider your own feelings about going on to a graduate or pro- 
fessional school. For some majors this is expected. 

• Get to know about the many academic opportunities which are 
available here at College Park. Some students overlook good 
courses and good programs simply because they don't know 
they're being offered. 

• Be confident about your ability to make good choices. You know 
more about your expectations for yourself than anyone else! 

Remember, there won't be just one, right, "perfect" major for you. 
There'll be at least several that will look good. Pick the one that best

Getting Involved 

Most new students come to the University seeking ways of getting 
involved. You may know that involvement in out-of-class activities is 
an excellent way to make new friends, expand your interests, learn 
more about yourself and others, and really become a part of campus 
life. Students who get involved are more likely to stay in school and 
graduate. Yet as a new member of the campus community - with classes, 
friends and maybe a part-time job - how can you find out more about 
getting involved? 

A good place to start is the Office of Campus Activities. Located 
in 1191 Stamp Union. Campus Activities serves as a major resource 
for student groups. We publish Pathfinder, which describes our stu- 
dent groups, a Registered Student Organization Directory, which lists 
contact information for over 360 student organizations, and The One 
Minute Newsletter, a biweekly calendar and information source. 

If you really want to become involved, keep your eyes open for 
Diamondback announcements and the numerous flyers posted on 
kiosks around campus. This is how most student groups get the word 
out. Don't be afraid to go to an initial meeting just to listen and check 
it out! 

Whether you're interested in contacting the Ski Club, finding out 
about concerts and plays, improving your leadership skills, or star- 
ting your own student group, don't let a lack of know-how keep you 
from getting started. Stop by the Office of Campus Activities. We'll 
be glad to help!

Budgeting Your Time 

"I never have enough time!" Ever had that problem? many people 
do; salesmen, people in business, college professors, even college 
students. Sometimes it feels as though the harder we work, the fur- 
ther behind we fall. 

Time management begins with the assumption that we can control 
time if we use a few fairly simple techniques. In the ABC Time Manage- 
ment System the first step is to find 5 or 10 minutes each day to plan. 
The next step in managing time is to make a list of all the things that 
we want to accomplish in a given amount of time (a semester, a week, 
or, perhaps best, a given day). After you list all the things you want, 
need or should do that day, prioritize the items on the list using "A " 
to designate the most important items, "B" to make the next most 
important, and "C" to indicate things that need to be done but that 
really aren't that important to you. When you finish prioritizing you 
should have identified the two or three most important things you 
want to do that day. 

The next step is probably the hardest part of time management, get 
the items you marked "A " completed! When you have available time 
start working on those items you have marked "B". Suppose you on- 
ly have fifteen minutes? It is better for you to complete a little bit 
of one of the top priorities than it is to complete two or three unim- 
portant tasks. Some people call this technique "Work smarter, not 
harder". It is not the quantity of work you do, it is whether you com- 
pleted the most important things you have to do. 

A second time management technique is to schedule your time, allot- 
ting time for class, study, work, recreation, etc. Using this technique 
you first write in committed time such as classes. Then carefully decide 
on when is the best time for you to schedule other activities. You may 
decide that you can study two hours each weekday from 3-5, and on 
Sunday through Wednesday evenings from 7-10. At any given time 
all you need to do is check your schedule to see if you have commit- 
ted that time or if it is free time.

Dealing with Stress 

As a college student, there will be many demands placed upon you— 
by professors and coursework, by friends and family, and by you. 
STRESS is your body's physical and emotional reaction to these 
demands or pressures. You can't expect to eliminate stress from your 
college life; nor would you want to. Optimal levels of stress keep you 
alert and help you perform well. Stress is a sign that you are alive 
and well and meeting the challenges of campus life. It is only when 
stress becomes extreme or is never-ending or when you don't have 
the necessary coping skills that it becomes a problem by turning into 

There are many ways to cope with the pressures of being a student 
and to prevent yourself from becoming distressed. Some of these 

1. Be prepared for activities or events in your life— be they academic 
or social. Letting things go until the last minute is a sure way to in- 
crease pressure beyond your tolerance point. 

2. Take care of yomself physically. Get enough sleep, try to eat well 
and regularly, and get regular exercise. Your general physical condi- 
tion is an important factor in determining how well you tolerate stress. 

3. T^ke care of yourself mentally. Compliment yourself on your ef- 
forts and accomplishments. Avoid being overly critical of yourself. 
Much pressure is internally imposed by being too hard on yourself. 

4. Schedule some type of relaxation into your daily routine. Relax- 
ing, enjoyable activities help you unwind from the day's pressure and 
regroup for tomorrow's. 

5. Don't be afraid to ask for help or seek support from friends. One 
of the best ways to alleviate stress is to spend time with people you 
like— talking over problems or just having a good time. 

6. Finally, if you find yourself overwhelmed and distressed, seek help 
from one of the many campus resources available to you. The Counsel- 
ing Center offers stress management workshops as well as counseling 
to help you better cope with pressure. The Learning Assistance Ser- 
vice, your dormitory staff, and the faculty are all there to help you.

A general academic overview, academic 
support services, and libraries. 

Academic Advising 

To get some academic advice, go see your academic advisor. 
Everybody has one. If you've decided on a major, look in the 
Schedule of Classes or check your department for the person to 

Don't \vorr\' if you haven't decided on a major yet. Undecided 
students can always see an advisor at the Undergraduate Advising 
Center in room 1117 of the Hornbake Library. 

At least once a semester it's a good idea to get together with your 
advisor to choose courses, check requirements and make sure 
you're on the right track. However, don't limit your visits to regis- 
tration times. Whenever you need it, advisors will help you find 
information about such things as career choices, the job market, 
internships, special work opportunities, etc. 

Don't wait until your senior year — see an advisor NOW! They are 
here to make your academic life less traumatic and more produc- 

For more information, be sure to check the current Undergradu- 
ate Catalog and the Schedule of Classes, or call 454-2733 or 

Pre-Professional Advising 

Although Pre-medicine. Pre-dentistry, Pre-veterinary medicine, 
etc. are not majors, there are specific courses students need to take 
in order to qualify for admission to professional studies in these 
areas after graduation. Particular faculty members have been desig- 
nated as advisors for students planning to apply for admission to 
schools of medicine, dentistry', podiatry, osteopathic medicine, op- 
tometry and veterinary medicine. Students should consult these 
advisors in addition to their major advisors early in their college 
careers. These advisors can be particularly helpful in providing 
accurate information about what is required for professional school 
admission and helping students develop appropriate strategies for 
gaining admission. 

Names and office locations of the pre-professional advisors ap- 
pear in each edition of the "Schedule of Classes."

student should follow-up with the professor or registration) 

Computing Averages 

Numerical Equivalents of grades: A = 4; B = 3; C = 2: D = 1: 

F = (other grading options are not computed in the Grade Point 


Use the following formulas: 

1. Quality Points of a course (QPs) = Number of credits for the 
course multiplied by the numerical equivalent of the grade 
received in the course. 

2. Grade Point Average (GPA) == Quality Points Earned divided by 
the Number of credits attempted. 

Minimum Requirements for Satisfactory Undergraduate 
Progress and Graduation 

1. A minimum of 120 credits of successfully completed (not I, F, 
or VV) course credits is required for graduation in any degree 
curriculum. Credits transferred or earned during prior admis- 
sions terminating in academic dismissal or withdrawal and 
followed by readmission, will be applicable toward meeting 
credit requirements for a degree. 

2. Academic retention is based solely upon grade point average 
(G.P.A.). The significance of the cumulative grade point average 
(cumulative G.RA.) varies according to the number of credits 

a. Satisfactory Performance applies to those students with a 
cumulative G.P.A. between 4.000 and 2.000 

b. Semester Academic Honors will be awarded to a student 
who completes within any given semester 12 or more cred- 
its (excluding courses with grades of P and S) with a se- 
mester G.PA. of 3.500 or higher. This notation will be 
placed on the individual's transcript. 

c. Students with cumulative G. Pj\. of less than 2.000 fall into 
three categories: Unsatisfactory Performance, Academic 
Warning, and Academic Dismissal. The cumulative G.P.A. 
that defines each of the categories varies according to the 
credit level as noted below: 





























d. Credits completed with grades A, B, C, D and F, but not P 
and S, will be used in computation of the semester and 
cumulative G.PA with values of 4.000, 3.000. 2.000, 1.000 
and 0.000 respectively. Marks of I, W and NGR will not be 
used in the computation of semester and cumulative G.PA. 

e. i. Students with an unsatisfactory performance for any se- 
mester will be urged in writing to consult their advisors. 

ii. Students on academic warning will have this fact noted 
on their transcripts and will be urged in writing to 
consult with their advisors prior to the beginning of the 
next semester. Students who receive an academic warn- 
ing in any semester will not be allowed to add or drop 
courses in the following semester or to register for the 
next proposed registrations. 
iii. Any student with 60 credits or more attempted and who 
thereafter received academic warning for two consecutive 
semesters will be academically dismissed. Students who are 
academically dismissed will have this action entered on 
their transcript. 

No student transferring to the University of Maryland, College 
Park Campus from outside the University of Maryland system 
will be subject to Academic Dismissal at the end of the first 
semester as long as the student obtains a cumulative G.P.A. of 
0.23 or more. (A student who would otherwise be subject to 
Academic Dismissal will receive an Academic Warning.) There- ei 

after, such a student will be subject to the normal standards of 
academic progress. This provision does not apply to students 
reinstated or readmitted to the College Park Campus. 

4. a. A student who has been academically dismissed and who is 

reinstated will be academically dismissed again if minimum 
academic standards are not met by the end of the first 
semester after reinstatement (see 7b). In the computation of 
the cumulative G.P.A., all credits attempted at the University 
of Maryland will be used. 

b. Under unusual circumstances, the Faculty Petition Board 
may set more rigorous requirements for the semester in 
which a reinstated student returns, or may allow a length- 
ened period (not to exceed two semesters) to reach the 
minimum or set academic standards. 

5. A student may repeat any course; however no student may be 
registered for a course more than three times. If a student 
repeats a course in which he or she has already earned a mark 
of A, B, C, D, P or S. the subsequent attempt shall not increase 
the total hours earned toward the degree. Only the highest 
mark will be used in computation of the student's cumulative 

Under unusual circumstances, the student's dean may grant an 
exception to this policy. 

6. Any appeal from the regulations governing academic warning 
and academic dismissal shall be directed to the Faculty Petition 
Board which shall be authorized to grant relief in unusual 
cases if the circumstances warrant such action. 

Diploma Application 

Students need to apply during the Schedule Adjustment period of 
the semester in shich they expect to complete their degree require- 
ments. Consult your Dean's Office for application details. 

Arbitrary and Capricious 
Grading Appeal Procedure 

If you feel that an instructor has given you a grade in an arbitrary 
and capricious manner, there is a policy that can help you. The 
Arbitrary and Capricious Grading Policy which is explained in detail 
in the Undergraduate Catalog is specifically designed to help stu- 
dents who have a grade dispute. Before filing a formal appeal, 
students are urged to resolve grievances informally with the in- 
structor or the Chair of the Department offering the course. 

Appeals must be filed no later than 20 days after the first day of 
instruction of the next semester (excluding summer terms) follow- 
62 ing the one in which the contested grade is received.

Academic Success Kit 

UMCP can overwhelm you unless you're ready for it. But to 
be ready, you may need help which is what your Academic 
Success Kit (ASK) is all about. You can get the help you need 
for college success by ASKing. 

The University of Maryland, College Park, is like a city, 
which like all new places, takes some getting used to. It can 
be overwhelming, but only if you let it. 

As you know, college is different from high school. Here, 
you have options, choices, and responsibility for yourself. No 
one is here to look over your shoulder or to remind you of 
what you should or need to be doing. Instead, there are many 
resources availableover 70 academic departments, approx- 
imately 300 student organizations, and more than 20 offices 
or campus support services to help you get the education you 
want. All you have to do is learn how to use what the campus 
has to offerby ASKing. 

The LAS offers various college success skills, a few of which 
are presented here. Learn to use these techniquesand never 
be afraid to ASK.

and statistics are available. 

One credit courses in study skills is offered each semester: 

• EDCP 108B — Introductory academic skills course, focusing on 

such areas as general study skills, time manage- 
ment techniques, and how to succeed in college. 

• EDCP 108M— Math Study Skills and Building Confidence 

• EDCP 108X— Study Skills for International Students 


Ongoing workshops are given on a weekly basisskill areas vary by

MATH 110 115 

If you need to take Math 110 or Math 115, begin now If you feel 
you are weak in math, the worst thing you can do is put off taking 
MATH 110. The more time that has elapsed since your last math 
course, the more difficult it will be for you. If placement tests show 
you need to take the non-credit course MATH 001, you should do 
that in your first semester at College Park. If you qualify for MATH 
110 or 115, do it as soon as possible. In order to meet Fundamental 
Studies Requirements, you are required to attempt one of these 
courses (or a higher numbered one) within your first 30 credits at 
College Park and to complete the course satisfactorily before you 
reach 60 credits. The Learning Assistance Service has a diagnostic 
skills test to assess your basic mathematical abilities. Self-help 
math materials are available to better prepare you to be successful 
in your college math courses. 


CHEN 101 103 

Taking Chem 101 or Chem 103? A series of audio-tutorial tapes 
are available at the Learning Assistance Service to reacquaint you 
with the basic concepts of chemistry — the mole concept, doing 
chemical calculations, Boyle's Law, etc. Each self-paced tape has a 
workbook. These refresher sessions offer explanations, practice, 
and drill. 

Work and Recreation Schedule 

Monday through Friday 9 to 5, is the standard 40 hour work 
week. For most students the standard 40 hour work week could be 
enough time to go to all of their classes and complete all of their 
study for those classes. 

To Do List for 



1. List the things you want or need to do today. 

2. Prioritize your list using: 'A" for the most important items; "B" 
for the next most important items; "C" for the least important 

3. Start with your 'As" Even if you have half an hour available, you 
are farther ahead doing part of an 'A" item than any of your "B's" 
or "C's".

The "how to" at UMCP 


Add-drop is the University's terminology for the process by which 
you may adjust your course schedule by either adding a particular 
course or dropping the course from your schedule. Before classes 
start and during the first ten days of classes, you may add or drop 
classes to adjust your schedule without academic penalty. After the 
ten day Scheduled Adjustment Period, and for the first ten weeks of 
classes, you may drop a course, maximum of 4 credits, and receive a 
"W" on your transcript. Questions about the use of the add-drop 
forms or process can be addressed at the Registration counter in 
North Administration. 

Cancellation of Registration 

If you should decide not to attend classes for the coming se- 
mester, you may wish to cancel your registration. If you are regis- 
tered for classes and you request a cancellation of your registration 
before the first day of classes begins, you will receive a full refund of 
your tuition fees. Your cancellation request must be received in 
writing by:

Changing Your Address 

Students who want to change their local mailing address or 
permanent addresses can do so any time during the semester. 
Address change forms are available at the following places: 

Office of the Bursar 
Address Unit 

Room 1121 or 1103, South Administration Building

Closed Courses 

"Sorry, this course is closed" This sentence spoken by a depart- 
ment representative can be the most feared that a new student may 
encounter at the University. Your reasons for "really, rea//y" needing 
this course are all probably valid, but the fact is, there are no more 
seats left in the course. So ... , what can you do? There are several 
options available to you. 

First, if the course is closed, find out if there is a waiting list and 
get on it. If there is no waiting list, ask the department represen- 
tative if they would start one. 

Second, if no waiting list is available, find out from the depart- 
ment representative if this particular course has had any drops at 
all. If someone dropped it before, someone will probably drop in the 
future. Your next step then, is to periodically check back to see if 
any spaces have opened up. 

The third and final option is to wait until the first day of classes 
and take your case to the course instructor. Chances are that if the 
room physically has seats available he or she will look favorably to 
adding a student to his section. Conversely, if the students are 
hanging from every available rafter you will probably have to wait 
until next semester. 

College/Major Changes 

College and major changes may be made at any time, the only 
restrictions being Board of Regents limitations on enrollment. 

Forms to initiate these changes are available at all college offices 
and at the Registration Office, located on the first floor lobby in the 
North Administration Building. 

Refer to the organizational chart on the back of the form to verify 
that you have processed all the necessary changes and are using the 
correct codes. 

Greek Housing 

1191 Stamp Union 

Fraternity and sorority houses provide living spaces for 1,800 
Maryland students. Living in a "Greek House" provides the chance 
to experience all aspects of facilities management. 

Although most students living in the houses are members of the 
Greek community, there are sometimes spaces available for non- 

The Office of Campus Activities helps to integrate the fraternities 
and sororities with the rest of the campus community The office 
serves to advise and coordinate fraternity and sorority members in 
order to help them get the most out of the Greek experience. 

If you have any questions or simply want more information about 
the sororities or fraternities, just stop by the Campus Activities 
Office located in the Stamp Union and they'll be glad to help you. 77 

Identification System 

The University's identification system is comprised of three cards: 
a paper registration card, a plastic photo transaction card, and (for 
those on board) a plastic photo dining hall card. These cards are 
used to gain admission to most events on campusathletic. social, 
and cultural. They are used for identification to check out library 
materials, to gain entrance to the dining halls and to ride the 
campus shuttle. 

Photo Identification Cards 

Students are issued photo ID cards when they enroll at the 
University and continue to use that card during their entire enroll- 
ment. Replacement cost is $7. 

Registration Cards 

A new registration card is issued at the beginning of each se- 
mester. Students registering early will receive theirs attached to 
their class schedules. Students registering later will be issued one 
after presenting proof of bill payment. The replacement cost is $1. 

Dining Hall ID Card 

Each student contracted with Dining Services for meals is issued 
a plastic photo I.D. card used for entrance to the dining hall. These 
cards are not transferable Don't lend them out; if caught your 
dining hall privileges can be revoked. 

NOTE: There will be a $12.00 replacement charge if the card is 
lost. Also, you must go to the Dining Services Business Office if you 
wish to cancel your board plan for any reason, i.e., withdrawal from 
school or housing. 

Off-Campus Housing Service 

Commuter Affairs 
1195 Stamp Union 

This service is an excellent resource for students looking for off- 
campus accommodations. The office maintains computerized list- 
ings of furnished and unfurnished rooms, apartments, and houses 
which are for rent in the area. Apartment directories and person- 
alized housing printouts are available to simplify your housing 
search. Peer advisors are available from 8:30 a.m. -4:30 p.m., Mon-

On-Campus Living 

Department of Resident Life 

3117 North Administration Building 


Living on-campus provides an opportunity to live with other 
78 students. Through constant interaction with others, the late night 

S?rS^~aC«kr.«v;; i 

talks with floormates and a roommate, and participation and in- 
volvement in floor and community governance, social and other 
activities, many students have their most enjoyable and rewarding 
experiences while on campus. 

Residence Halls 

A range of physical settings is available in the University resi- 
dence halls. 

High-rise residence halls dominate the north side of the campus. 
The "complexes", or groupings of high-rise halls around a central 
dining facility, are near most athletic arenas and other recreational 
resources of the campus. As many as 550 students live in a high- 
rise hall. 

Older Georgian Colonial-style residence halls are located on the 
south side of campus. These "Hill area" hallsin the North Hill and 
in the South Hill clusters of residence hallsare close to most 
libraries and the academic core of the campus. These halls are 
smaller, not more than three or four stories high, and house as few 
as 35 and as -nany as 260 students. 

In these tiaditional "dormitory-style" residence halls, there are 
bedstudy rooms for two students (though some singles for upper 
class students and triples and quads exist) and limited lounge and 
meeting space for small groups of residents and friends. Room sizes 
and features vary considerably with the age and physical layout of 
each hall. 

It is to these traditional "dormitory-style" residence halls that 
entering freshman and transfer students should expect to be as- 

Within many of the older residence halls on the south "Hill area" 
renovations have been completed, providing apartments with kitch- 
ens or kitchenless suites for four to eight students in place of the 
double bedrooms and communal baths that are common in the 
traditional buildings. Freshman and new transfer students should 
not expect to initially be assigned to these apartments or suites. 


Apartment units for four or six students are located in 
Leonardtown, found across Route 1 from the main part of campus. 
Apartments are reserved for upper-class students; freshman and 
new transfer students are not assigned there. Apartments include 
fully equipped kitchens and private baths, and all furnishings and 

People to Know 

Your Resident Assistant or R.A. is an undergraduate student 
hired to help you make the most of your experience in the residence 
halls. Your R.A. is available for advice, information, conflict resolu- 
tion and, most of all, as a friend. Get to know your R.A. for he or 
she can make your stay here easier and more enjoyable. Your 
Resident Director or R.D. is a professional staff member who man- 
ages your building and particular student concerns. 

Roommate Assignments 

New students are assigned randomly, so there is no way for you to 
choose where or with whom you will be assigned. However, efforts 
are made to satisfy students' preferences in the following areas: 

• Coeducational or single-sex hall. In the coeducational halls, men 
and women are assigned on separate floors or wings of the same 
building. More than 40 per cent of campus residents live in 
coeducational halls. 

• Limited or unlimited visitation privileges. In most halls, the 
residents are not limited in hours of the day they may have guests 
of the opposite sex visit in their rooms, roommates willing. In 
other halls, limited visitation hours are maintained, meaning 
that guests of the opposite sex are not permitted 12 midnight to 
8:00 a.m. weeknights and 1:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. weekends. There 
are no curfews or time restrictions for residents to enter or leave 
their halls. 

• Non-smoker preferred as a roommate. 

Sometimes, the two students assigned together in a room are not 
able to work out a cooperative roommate relationship. The R.A. can 
be called on to help work out differences. Sometimes it is necessary 
to help students pursue a room change. 

You and your roommate will find that some expectations or rules 
must exist in residence halls as they must in any community of 
people. Because the residence halls are on the campus and support 
your academic purpose for being here, most of these rules exist to 
guide and support learning and respect for others and positive 
interaction among students. Generally speaking, these standards 
rest on one simple notion, giving the same courtesies, respect and 
consideration to others that you expect for yourself. In the commu- 
nity of students living in a University residence hall, special empha- 
sis is placed on each student being able to study and sleep. While a 
student at the University, you must abide by expectations stated in 
80 the Code of Student Conduct (located in the back of this handbook). 

As a resident on the campus, you also must abide by expectations 
stated in the Residence Halls Agreement and other residence halls 

On-Line Registration 

In the middle of each Fall and Spring term, usually October and 
April, currently registered students are invited to register for next 
semester. You will receive an invitation letter which indicates the 
location where you may pick up your materials, the dates of early 
registration, and when and where the First Edition of the Schedule 
of Classes will be delivered. 

An on-line registration system is being used which will allow you 
to confirm your schedule for the next semester at the time of your 
registration. Most currently enrolled students will be given ap- 
pointments to register by this new system. If you do not get an 
invitation to register, or misplace the one you receive, contact your 
Dean's office or the Registrations office (454-5559) for information. 
(Prior to your registration, it is a good idea to see your advisor.)

sistance in choosing a major, job vacancies and interviewing serv- 
ices when you're ready to begin your career. 


Have you ever thought of approaching a faculty member for job 
referrals? If you haven't, you should, because the faculty can be 
valuable resources in job referrals for two reasons. 

First, they maintain contacts with colleagues in the area who 
work with the government or private business and are in the 
position to hire. Second, their job leads often involve positions 
directly related to professional interests. You may be pleasantly 
surprised how inter ested the faculty are in helping students find 
pre-professional employment.

Offlce of the Bursar 

South Administration Building 

Q: When will I receive a bill? 

A: If you attend one of the orientation sessions held before July 11, 
1987, you should receive a combination bill/schedule for Fall 
1987 around July 16, 1987. Those students who attend orienta- 
tion after July 10th will receive a bill around August 20, 1987. 

Q: When is payment of the bill due? 

A: Payment for room, board, tuition and all associated fees is due 
in full by September 2, 1987, whether or not you receive a bill. 
Checks should be made payable to the University of Maryland 
and should include the student's social security number on the 
front of the check. 

Q: What should I do if I don't receive a bill? 

A: Write or call the Student Accounts Office on (301) 454-4832 as 
soon as possible if you have not received a bill before school 
starts. We will advise you if there are any problems regarding 
your registration or bill and/or the correct amount to pay. The 
University cannot assume responsibility for the non-receipt of 
bills so make sure the bill is paid in full by the first day of class 
to avoid additional charges and/or penalties. g5 

Q: What will happen if I don't pay the bill by the first day of class? 

A: The University of Maryland does not have a deferred payment 
plan. It is the policy of the University not to defer payment of 
fees on the basis of a pending application for financial assistance 
from an outside agency such as banks, guaranteed student loan 
programs, etc. Students who fail to pay their bill will have their 
course enrollment cancelled, all University services severed, will 
be charged a $25.00 severance fee and have their account trans- 
ferred to the State Central Collection Unit with a minimum 15 
collection charge added. 

Q: What will happen to my room and board if services are severed? 

A: Severance of housing services means that the student will be 
asked to vacate the room, the students room will be assigned to 
another student and the student will be placed at the bottom of 
the waiting list once services are restored. For a student on 
board whose services are severed, no meals are served until the 
account is satisfied and no reimbursement will be made for 
meals missed during severance. 

Q: What do I do if I decide not to attend the University? 

A: Students who register and later decide not to attend the Univer- 
sity must cancel their registration in writing with the With- 
drawal Officer, prior to the first day of class to incur no financial 
obligation to the University. Failure to cancel registration will 
result in the student being assessed charges even though he/she 
does not attend class. In addition, students on room and board 
should check each one of these separate contracts for the cor- 
rect cancellation deadlines and procedures. Failure to cancel 
each one of these separate obligations — Registration, Dining 
Services, and Resident Life — will result in charges. Unfortu- 
nately, students tend to assume withdrawal from Registration 
cancels all obligations. That is not correct. 

Q: Whom do I notify of a change of address? 

A: Since many University communications are sent through the 
mail, it is imperative that an accurate and up-to-date address is 
maintained for you. Changes can be made to your local or 
permanent mailing addresses at any time by completing an 
Address Change Form at the Office of the Bursar, 1103 South 
Administration Building or the Registrations Counter, 1st Floor 
Lobby, North Administration Building. 

Q: How do I obtain a refund of a credit balance on my account? 

A: No credit balance is automatically refunded. That is, a student 
must file a request in writing to obtain a refund. This is done by 
addressing a letter to the Refund Unit, Office of the Bursar, or by 
completing a refund request form at the Student Accounts 
Counter, 1103 South Administration building or the Withdrawal 
86 Office, 1st Floor, North Administration Building. It takes ap- 

proximately five to six weeks, from the time a credit balance 
appears on the account and a refund request is received, until a 
check is mailed from the State TVeasurer's Office in Annapolis. 

Q: What do I do if I have been awarded financial aid? 

A: University scholarships and grants will be credited directly to 
your account as long as you early-register for at least 12 credits. 
A check for any balance remaining will be available from the 
Office of the Bursar. 'Rvo important items should be noted 
regarding financial aid: 

1) In order to receive financial aid, the award letter indicat- 
ing acceptance of the offered aid must be received by the 
office of Student Financial Aid. 

2) Students on scholarships and grants are expected to main- 
tain a semester credit load of 12 credits. In the event a 
student drops below this level, the scholarship or grant is 
automatically cancelled leading to an indebtedness to the 
University. Any student considering dropping credits 
should contact their financial aid counselor before taking 
such action. 

Q. What do I need to do to pick up my Financial Aid Check? 

A: All financial aid checks, including guaranteed student loan 

(GSL), NDSL and grant and scholarships checks, are disbursed 

by appointment only. The Office of the Bursar will notify you by 

mail when there is a check available for you. Appointments 

must be made by telephoning 454-4429.

Special Services 

The diverse nature of the University requires many special services 
which are public safety oriented but do not require sworn police 
officers. The UM Police employs undergraduate and graduate stu- 
dents to fulfill these special service obligations. The following are 
the two divisions which provide these services: 

• Student Police Auxiliary (SPA), call 454-4909. 

SPAs assist with the security of the buildings, direction of 
traffic during special events, and manning the four gates on

UM parking decals. Operators of these vehicles must show proper 
identification prior to entering the Campus. Contact the SPA 
office for further information. 

• Loss Prevention Officers secure buildings on Campus at 11 p.m. 
and open the buildings at 7 a.m. daily. Contact the Loss Preven- 
tion Office for further information.

Off Campus Incidents 

The UM Police are limited to a specific jurisdiction, primarily the 
campus, for response to calls and requests for service. If you are 
outside of UM Police jurisdiction and the incident occurred within

report the incident. To report a crime or suspicious activity that 
occurred on campus, you must notify the UM Police from a campus 
location. All incidents which occur outside of the UM Police juris- 
diction should be reported to the police department in the area in 
which the incident occurred. In the Washington Metropolitan Area, 
most emergency calls for service may be made by dialing 911.

planning. If you are going to be driving to campus and are not in a 
carpool, try to arrive in your assigned lot at least twenty minutes 
before class. If you can't park in your assigned lot because it's full,

begins the first day of Fall/Spring semesters.

Parking Tickets 

At Maryland, it not only rains and snows, but it tickets. Beige 
slips of paper magically fall from the sky and lodge themselves 
between your wiper blades and windshield. Should this happen to 
you (in four years it's bound to occur), you'll have to pay a fine. 

If you feel undeserving of the ticket, you may appeal it through 
the Student TVaffic Appeals Board (STAB) or request a PGCDC trial 
(see the reverse side of the ticket). If you appeal tothe Student 
TVaffic Appeals Board, you must go to the STAB Office, Second Floor 
of the North Administration Building and file an form. This form 
must be completed and returned to that Office within 15 calendar 
days fromthe date the ticket was issued. 

A student board will review your appeal and do one of three 
things: (1) void out the ticket; (2) lower the fine; OR (3) deny the 
appeal. They will never raise the fine. If your ticket is a meter 
violation, yu may appeal it through the UMCP-MVA Office or request 
a PGCDC trial. Towing fees may be appealed through the depart- 
ment initiating the tow.

cultural activity for the campus community, and it provides a 
variety of programs, facilities, and services. The following list in- 
cludes many of those services that are of interest to incoming 

An Information Desk for campus affairs (x2801) is located in the

Either way you choose, we're happy to see you. Here's an 
overview of our offerings: 

Spectrum Showcase

alternative entertainment to the campus community. Film, music 
and comedy are the types of entertainment that have been pre- 
sented by Spectrum over the past year in the Stamp Union Atrium. 
This rather free form committee is looking for people who would 
like to see more of the non-mainstream types of entertainment 
brought to campus. 

Ibrrapin l^ot 

The annual Terrapin Ti-ot, a 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) foot race 
through the beautiful University of Maryland campus, was initiated 
in 1980 and has been run each succeeding year in October. The TVot 
just keeps getting bigger and better every year. Each registrant

for the top prizes. So why not make plans to join in the excitement 
of this year's race?

semester, Campus Criterium is now a tradition in the spring se- 
mester The Campus Criterium, which actually consists of many 


different races around Byrd Stadium, will match not only some of 
the top racers in the area, but also those "racers" who just like to 
peddle for the fun of it. Be sure to watch for details on this major 
campus event!

outdoor activities which this committee plans and organizes for the 
enjoyment of outdoor enthusiasts on campus. If you like to keep 
company with outdoor lovers, come to one of our meetings or 
register for one of our trips at the Union Ticket Center.

inter ested in both film and putting on film events. The committee 
selects the films playing at Hoff Theater and publishes the Hoff 
Movie Brochure. In addition, the students put on other successful 
programs such as the Tbesday Free Film Series at Hoff Theater and 
the weekend Cinema Fests in the Colony Ballroom. Come to the 
Union and enjoy one of our events, or join the film committee and

dedication ceremony, continues with a wide variety of events each 
day designed to enhance philanthropy, spirit, competition and the

The dilemma of getting the experience that's required to land a good 
job is being solved by the work of PACE (People Active in Communi- 
ty Effort). 

For over fifteen years, PACE has been matching University students 
with volunteer jobs in areas as diverse as mental health care and tutor- 125 

ing, providing students with practical experience and the satisfaction 
of helping and caring. In addition to finding volunteer jobs for students, 
PACE provides transportation to many of the projects. 

Once again, students will have the opportunity to work with pro- 
jects in areas which include mental health, rehabilitation, medical care, 
tutoring, geriatrics, and counseling. Those being served by PACE 
volunteers include Washington Hospital Center, Community Care Ser- 
vices, Sunshine Outreach Center, St. Elizabeths Hospital, and other 
Washington area service organizations. 

PACE invites you to drop by or call, and let us tell you of the oppor- 
tunities that we can offer you.

Student Government Association 

Room 121 ID Adele Stamp Union 


Monday-Friday - 9:00-5:00 

Your Student Government Association is a body of elected stu- 
dents who serve as an umbrella organization for all student groups 
at the College Park campus. This years executives are: Tom Cooper, 
President; Paul Croarkin, 1st Vice President; Virginia Russell, 2nd 
Vice President and James Reardon, TVeasurer. There are also three 
other branches of the SGA: the Cabinet and Governance Board 
chosen by the President, and the SGA legislature which is elected. 

The Student Government is responsible for voicing student in- 
terests and rights before the campus administrators, the Board of 
Regents and the State Legislature. The Student Government is also 
respon sible for allocating your Student Activities Fee to recognized 
student groups, and to providing student services. These services 
include: Student Entertainment Enterprises. Student Legal Aide, 
Auto Assistance Program, a night-time Campus Escort Service, a 
Typing Center, and a Finals Relief Center every semester. SGA also 
provides the S.T.A.R. Center (Student Tbtorial and Referral Center), 
a place where you can get copies of old tests for free, and current 
semester syllabus' of professors. 



For a relaxing break from the grind of studies, a bit of culture 
might be just the right thing. University Theatre offers a varied slate 
of major shows in T^wes Theatre each year. There are also produc- 
tions in the nearby Gallery Theatre and Experimental Theatre with 
a diverse selection of shows. For those afflicted with the acting bug, 
all auditions, mainstage. Gallery and "E.T.," are open to all students 
and are usu ally announced in the Diamondback. If you'd rather 
just watch, student tickets are available at the Tkwes Theatre Box 
Office, at a modest price. 

University Ihlent Show 

The spring semester is the traditional time for the University 
Tklent Show, the only event on campus focusing on amateur com- 
petition in the performing arts (singing, dancing, and comedy 
skits). This variety show comes complete with musicians, dancers 
and comedians, and any students are eligible to audition and bring 
hidden talent to the worlds attention. 

V\^shington, D.C. 


TVansportation seems to breakdown into two categories: the 
"haves" and the "have nots". The "haves" are those of you who are 
fortunate enough to have a car available to you. Since parking is so 
tight in downtown Washington, we suggest, if possible, that you do 
not drive. The "have nots" then, are those of you who do not have a 
car available and were smart enough to adhere to our advice given 
above. Washington is fortunate to have a very reliable bus system 
and a subway system that is among the most modern in the world. 

Your first trip downtown would be best accomplished on a week- 
end, since it is less crowded and the people downtown on weekends 
(tourists) will be as lost as you. Start your trip by boarding a Metro- 
Bus in front of the Stamp Union (Route R-2 southbound) and stay 
on until Brookland Metro Station. The Metro-Bus stops in front of 
the Union every 60 minutes and will cost about $1.25 on weekends, 
make sure you bring plenty of change since the bus drivers do not 
make change. Schedules for other rates are available at the Stamp 
Union Information Desk. 

Entering the Metrorail station may make you feel as if you have 
slipped ahead into the TWilight Zone. The Metro stations are all 
ultramodern and very automated. In the entrance of every metro 
station is a placard that details the Metro farecard systems. It is a 
three- step process to obtain a Metro farecard. First find a farecard 
machine and insert a one dollar bill into the machine (wrinkled 
dollars don't work well). Next select the farecard value you need (it 
130 will automatically show the amount you inserted). Lastly, push the 

button on the right and remove your farecard. Use your farecard to 
enter the Metro system by inserting it into the gate with the green 
light and white arrow. Upon exiting the Metro system, insert the 
card again. It will be returned to you if there is money left on it. 


Once on the Metro system at Brookland, you will need to travel 
on the Red line until you arrive at Metro Center. You will then get 
off at Metro Center and transfer to the Orange Line going towards 
New Carrollton or on the Blue Line toward National Airport. Once 
having transferred lines, disembark at the Smithsonian exit, and 
you will find yourself in the middle of all the museums, the White 
House, Washington Monument, and the Capitol. First priority 
should be a perusal of some of the museums that interest you. The 
Smithsonian Institute is not one building, but a series of over ten 
different museums. A place to start might be the Air and Space 
Museum, which contains incredible displays of aviation and space 
history, as well as a planetarium, and two films "To Fly" and the 
"Living Planet" which are spectacular scenic voyages around our 
globe on a five story high screen. These two films are an absolute 
must for Washington explorers. 

Another Smithsonian must is the East Wmg in the National 
Gallery of Art. Construction was completed on this architectural 
wonder in 1978. A walk around the building, with its moving 
sidewalk, indoor waterfall, and perhaps a bite to eat in their excel- 
lent cafeteria will highlight any trip to the Smithsonian. 

No matter what part of the Smithsonian you visit, a fun and enjoy 
able day is yours, . . . but only if you do it. The Smithsonian is 
never as great when you listen to someone tell you what a great day 
thev had. 


Washington is famous for both its fantastic restaurants and its 
wide variety of nightspots. 

Perhaps the greatest concentration of excellent restaurants, bars, 
and shops is in Georgetown. The heart of Georgetown is located on 
Wisconsin and M Streets downtown. Georgetown is largely a walk- 
ing experience, with thousands of people on a sunny afternoon or a 
clear Friday night wandering from place to place. Unlike the rest of 
Washington, it is easiest to drive into Georgetown and park as near 
as possible to the corner of Wisconsin and M Street. 

There are many other areas that offer quality establishments that 
serve a variety of food and refreshments. Connecticut Avenue north 
and south of Dupont Circle (a Metro Rail station) is famous for its 
sandwich shops, movie theaters and restaurants. Another excellent 
area is on Pennsylvania Avenue north of the Capitol south Metro 
stop. This area, fondly called "Capitol Hill", has many ethnic res- 
taurants where the executive crowd from Washington hang out. 
Who knows you might even bump into a Senator. 131 

WNUC AM65 and FM88 

The University of Maryland has two student operated, managed 
and maintained radio stations, as well as one of the largest record 
libraries in the area. 

WMUC-AM65 gives the students of College Park the very best in 
today's contemporary music. AM65 combines the old and the new, 
the best in today's album rock, new music, Top-40, and your favorite 

WMUC-FM88 can be heard within a 20-mile radius of the Univer- 
sity and brings a unique blend of the latest new wave, rock, funk, 
jazz, classical, folk, bluegrass, comedy, relevant news, and inter- 
views with touring artists and local band members. 

Both AM65 and FM88 also give away tickets to concerts and 
Maryland sports events, albums, and a variety of other things. 

Auditions for DJs and other staff positions are held at the begin- 
ning of each semester.

hereby adopts the following Statement of Faculty. Student and Institu- 
tional Rights and Responsibilities for Academic Integrity. 

Statement of Faculty, Student and 

Institutional Rights and ResponBibillties for 

Academic Integrity 


At the heart of the academic enterprise are learning, teaching, and 
scholarship. In universities these are exemplified by reasoned discus- 
sion between student and teacher, a mutual respect for the learning 
and teaching process, and intellectual honesty in the pursuit of new 
knowledge. In the traditions of the academic enterprise, students and 
teachers have certain rights and responsibilities which they bring to 
the academic community. While the following statements do not imp- 
ly a contract between the teacher or the University and the student, 
they are nevertheless conventions which the University believes to be 
central to the learning and teaching process. 

Faculty RitfhU and Responsibilities 

1. Faculty shall share with students and administration the respon- 
sibility for academic integrity. 

2. Faculty are accorded freedom In the classroom to discuss subject 
matter reasonably related to the course. In turn they have the 
responsibility to encourage free and honest inquiry and expression 
on the part of students. 

3. Faculty are responsible for the structure and content of their 
courses, but they have the responsibility to present courses that 
are consistent with their descriptions In the University catalog. In 
addition, faculty have the obligation to make students aware of the 
expectations in the course, the evaluation procedures, and the 
grading policy. 

4. Faculty are obligated to evaluate students fairly and equitable in 
a manner appropriate to the course and its objectives. Grades shall 
be assigned without prejudice or bias. 

5. Faculty shall make all reasonable efforts to prevent the occurrence 
of academic dishonesty through the appropriate design and ad- 
ministration of iisslgnments and exiuninations, through the careful 
safeguarding of course materials and examinations, and through 
regular reassessment of evaluation procedures. 

6. When instances of academic dishonesty are suspected, faculty shall 
have the right and responsibility to see that appropriate action is 
taken in accordance with University regulations. 

Student Rights and Responsibilities 

1. Students shall share with faculty and administration the respon- 
sibility for academic integrity. 

2. Students shall have the right of inquiry and expression in their 
courses without prejudice or bias. In addition, students shall have 
the right to know the requirements of their courses and to know 
the manner in which they will be evaluated and graded. 

3. Students shall have the obligation to complete the requirements 
of their courses in the time and manner prescribed and to submit 
to evaluation of their work. 

4. Students shall have the right to be evaluated fairly and equitable 
in a manner appropriate to the course and its objectives. 

5. Students shall not submit as their own work any work which has 
been prepared by others. Outside assistance in the preparation of 
this work, such as librarian assistance, tutorial assistance, typing 
assistance, or such assistance c\s may be specified or approved by 
the instructor Is allowed. 

6. Students shall make all reasonable efforts to prevent the occur- 
rence of academic dishonesty. They shall by their own example en- 
courage academic integrity and shall themselves refrain from acts 
of cheating and plagiarism or other acts of academic dishonesty. 

7. When instances of academic dishonesty are suspected, students 
shall have the right and responsibility to bring this to the atten- 
tion of the faculty or other appropriate authority. 

Institutional Responsibility 

1. Campus or appropriate administration units of the University of 
Maryland shall take appropriate measures to foster academic integri- 
ty in the classroom. 

2. Campuses of appropriate administrative units shall take steps to 
define acts of academic dishonesty, to insure procedures for due pro- 
cess for students accused or suspected of acts of academic dishones- 
ty, and to impose appropriate sanctions on students guilty of acts of 
academic dishonesty. 

3. Campuses or appropriate administrative units shall take steps to 
determine how admission or matriculation shall be affected by acts 
of academic dishonesty on another campus or at another institution. 

No student suspended for disciplinary reasons at any campus of the 
University of Maryland shall be admitted to any other University of 
Maryland campus during the period of suspension. 

AND, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that campuses or appropriate 
administrative units of the University of Maryland will publish the above 
State of Faculty, Student and Institutional Rights and Responsibilities 
for Academic Integrity in faculty handbooks and in student handbooks 
and catalogs: and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board of Regents hereby 
directs each campus or appropriate administrative unit to review ex- 
isting procedures or to Implement new procedures for carrying out

each campus or appropriate administrative unit to submit to the Presi- 
dent or his designee for approval the campus' or unit's procedure for 
implementation of the institutional responsibility provisions of the 
above Statement,

Judicial Panels 

18. Hearings or other proceedings as provided in this code may be 
held before the following boards or committees: 

(a) CONFERENCE BOARDS, as appointed in accordance with 
part 31 of this code. 

(b) RESIDENCE BOARDS, as established and approved by the 
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.'^" Students residing in 
group living units owned, leased, operated or supervised by 
the University may petition the Vice Chancellor for authori- 
ty to establish judicial boards. Such boards may be em- 
powered to hear cases involving violations of this code, as 
prescribed by the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. 

(c) THE CENTRAL BOARD hears cases involving disciplinary

cluding at least two graduate students. 

(d) THE APPELLATE BOARD hears appeals from Residence 
boards, the Central Board, and ad hoc boards, in accordance 
with part 39 of this code. The Appellate Board is composed 
of five full-time students, including at least two graduate 

(e) AD HOC BOARDS may be appointed by the Director of 
Judicial Programs when a Conference Board, a Residence 
Board. The Central Board, the Appellate Board or the Senate 
Adjunct Committee are unable to obtain a quorum or are 
otherwise unable to hear a case.'--' Each ad hoc board shall 
be composed of three members, including at least one 

hears appeals as specified in part 38 of this code. The com- 
mittee also approves the initial selection of all judicial board 
members, except members of conference and ad hoc 

Selection and Removal of Board Members 

20. Members of the various judicial boards are selected in accordance 
with procedures developed by the Director of Judicial Programs. 

21. Members of conference and ad hoc boards are selected in accord- 
ance with parts 31 and 18(e). respectively. 

22. Prospective members of the Central Board and the Appellate 
Board are subject to the confirmation by the Senate Committee 
on Student Conduct.

selected in accordance with the bylaws of the University Senate. 

24. Prior to participating in board or committee deliberations, new 
members of the Senate Committee on Student Conduct and of 
all judicial boards, except conference and ad hoc boards, will par- 
ticipate in one orientation session offered at least once each 
academic year by the Judicial Programs Office. 

25. Student members of any judicial board or committee who are 
charged with any violation of this code or with a criminal 
offense'^' may be suspended from their judicial positions by the 
Director of Judicial Programs during the pendency of the charges 
against them. Students convicted of any such violation or offense 
may be disqualified from any further participation in the Univer- 
sity judicial system by the Director of Judicial Programs. Addi- 
tional grounds and procedures for removal may also be set forth 
in the bylaws of the various judicial panels. 

Case Referrals 

26. Any person'^^' may refer to a student or a student group o; 
organization suspected of violating this code to the Judicial Pro 
grams Office. Persons making such referrals are required to pro 
vide information pertinent to the case and will normally be ex 
pected to appear before a judicial board as the complainant.'- 

Deferral of Proceedings 

27. The Director of Jucicial Programs may defer disciplinary pro- 
ceedings for alleged violations of this code for a period not to 
exceed ninety days. Pending charges may be withdrawn thereafter, 
dependent upon the good behavior of the respondent. 

Hearing Referrals 

28. Staff members in the Judicial Programs Office will review case 
referrals to determine whether the alleged misconduct might result 
in expulsion, suspension, or disciplinary removal from Llniversi- 
ty housing.'^'" Students subiect to those sanctions shall be ac- 

corded a hearing before the appropriate judicial board. All other 
cases shall be resolved in the Judicial Programs Office after an 
informal disciplinar>' conference, as set forth in parts 30 and 31 
of this code. 

29. Students referred to a judicial board hearing may elect instead 
to have their case resolved in accordance with parts 30 and 31. 
The full range of sanctions authorized by this code may be im- 
posed, although the right of appeal shall not be applicable. 

Disciplinary Conferences*'^' 

30. Students subject to or electing to participate in a disciplinary con- 
ference in the Judicial Programs Office are accorded the follow- 
ing procedural protections: 

(a) written notice of charges at least three days prior to the

to call appropriate witnesses in their behalf. 

(d) the right to be accompanied and assisted by a representative, 
in accordance with Part 33 of this code. 

31 Disciplinary conferences shall be conducted by the Director of 
Judicial Programs or a designee.'^" Complex or contested cases

of one member of the Central Board, one member of the Appellate 
Board, and a staff member in the division of Student Affairs. Con- 
ference Board members shall be selected on a rotating basis by 
the Director of Judicial Programs, 

Hearing Procedures 

32. The following procedural guidelmes shall be applicable m 
disciplinary hearings: 

(a) respondents shall be given notice of the hearing date and the 
specific charges against them at least five days in advance 
and shall be accorded reasonable access to the case file, which 
will be retained in the Judicial Programs Office. 

(b) the presiding officer of an> "board may subpoena witnesses 
upon the motion of any board member or of either party and 
shall subpoena witnesses upon request of the board advisor. 
Subpoenas must be approved by the Director of Judicial Pro- 
grams and shall be personally delivered or sent by certified 
mail, return receipt requested. University students and 
employees are expected to comply with subpoenas issued pur- 
suant to this procedure, unless compliance would result in 
significant and unavoidable personal hardship or substantial 
interference with normal University activities'^-' 

(c) respondents who fail to appear after proper notice will be 
deemed to have plead guilty to the charges pending against 

(d) hearings will be dosed to the public, except for the immediate 
members of the respondent's family and for the respondent's 
representative. An open hearing may be held, in the discre- 
tion of the presiding officer, if requested by the respondent. 

(e) the presiding officer of each board shall exercise control over 
the proceedings to avoid needless consumption of time and 
to achieve the orderly completion of the hearing. Except as 
provided in section (o) of this part, any person, including the 
respondent, who disrupts may be excluded by the presiding 
officer or by the board advisor. 

(0 hearings may be tape recorded or transcribed, if a recording 
or transcription is not made, the decision of the board must 
include a summary of the testimony and shall be sufficiently 
detailed to permit review by appellate bodies and by staff 
members in the Judicial Programs Office. 

(g) any party or the board advisor may challenge a board member 
on the grounds of personal bias. Board members may be dis- 
qualified upon majority vote of the remaining members of 
the board, conducted by secret ballot.'"' or by the Director 
of Judicial Programs. 

(h) witnesses shall be asked to affirm that their testimony is 
truthful and may be subject to charges of perjury, pursuant 
to part 9(h) of this code. 

(i) prospective witnesses, other than the complainant and the 
respondent, may be excluded from the hearing during the 
testimony of other witnesses. All parties, the witnesses, and 
the public shall be excluded during board deliberations, 

(j) the burden of proof shall be upon the complainant, who must 
establish the guilt of the respondent by a preponderance of 
the evidence. ''*' 

(k) formal fules of evidence shall not be applicable in disciplinar>' 
proceedings conducted pursuant to this code. The presiding 
officer of each board shall give effect to the rules of confiden- 
tiality and privilege, but shall otherwise admit all matters in- 
to evidence which reasonable persons would accept as hav- 
ing probative value in the conduct of their affairs. Unduly 
repetitious or irrelevant evidence may be excluded.'-^^' 

(I) respondents shall be accorded an opportunity to question 
those witnesses who testify for the complainant at the hearing. 

(m) affidavits shall not be admitted into evidence unless signed 
by the affiant and witnessed by a University employee, or by 
a person designated by the Director of Judical Programs. 151 


(n) board members may take judicial notice of matters which 
would be within the general experience of University 

(o) board advisors may comment on questions of procedure and 
admissibility of evidence and will otherwise assist in the con- 
duct of the hearing. Advisors will be accorded all the privileges 
of board members, and the additional responsibilities set forth 
in this code, but shall not vote. All advisors are responsible 
to the Director of Judicial Programs and shall not be exclud- 
ed from hearings or board deliberations by any board or by 
the presiding officer of any board. 

(p) the Directo of Judicial Programs may appoint a special 
presiding officer to any board in complex cases or in any case 
in which the respondent is represented by an attorney. Special 
presiding officers may participate in board deliberations, but 
shall not vote'-''' 

(q) a determination of guilt shall be followed by a supplemental 
proceeding in which either party and the board advisor may 
submit evidence or make statements concerning the ap- 
propriate sanction to be imposed. The past disciplinary 
record'^' of the respondent shall not be supplied to the 
board by the advisor prior to the supplementary proceeding. 

Representatives and Attorneys 

33. Respondents or complainants participating in any disciplinary pro- 
ceeding may be accompanied bv a representative, who may be an 
attorney.*^' Parties who wish to K upresented by an attorney 
in a disciplinary proceeding must sn mform the Judicial Programs 
Office in writing at least two business days prior to the scheduled 
date of the proceeding. Advisors may not appear in lieu of 

Stndent Gronps and Organizations 

34. Student groups and organizations may be charged with violations 
of this code. 

35. A student group or organization and its officers may be held 
collectively**"' or individually responsible when violations of this 
code by those associated with '*' the groups or organization have 
received the tacit or overt consent or encouragement of the groups 
or organization or of the group's or organization's leaders, of- 
ficers, or spokesmen. 

36. The officers or leaders or any identifiable spokesmen'*-' for a stu- 
dent group or organization may be directed by the Vice Chancellor 
for Student Affairs or a designee to take appropriate action design- 
ed to prevent or end violations of this code by the group or 
organization or by any persons associated with the group or 
organization who can reasonably be said to be acting in the groups 
or organization's behalf. Failure to make reasonable efforts to com- 
ply with the Vice Chancellor's directive shall be considered a viola- 
tion of part 9(n) of this code, both by the officers, leaders or 
spokesmen for the group or organization and by the group or 
organization itself. 

37. Sanctions for group or organization misconduct may include 
revocation or denial of recognition or registration, as well as other 
appropriate sanction, pursuant to part 10(0 of this code. 


38- Any disciplinary determination resulting in expulsion or 
suspension'*^' may be appealed by the respondent to the Senate 
Committee on Student Conduct. The Senate Committee shall also 
hear appeals from denials of petitions to void disciplinary records, 
pursuant to part 48 of this code. 

39. Final decisions of residence boards, the Central Board and ad hoc 
boards, not involving the sanctions specified in part 38. may be 
appealed by the respondent to the Appellate Board.'**' 

40. Requests for appeals must be submitted in writing to the Judicial 
Programs Office within seven business days from the date of the 
letter notifying the respondent of the original decision. Failure 
to appeal within the allotted lime will render the original deci- 
sion final and conclusive.'*^' 

41. A written brief in support of the appeal must be submitted to the 
Judicial Programs Office within ten business days from the date 
of the letter notifying the respondent of the original decision. 
Failure to submit a written brief within the allotted time will render 
the decision of the lower board final and conclusive.'**" 

42. Appeals shall be decided upon the record of the original pro- 
ceeding and upon written briefs submitted by the parties. De novo 
hearings shall not be conducted. 

43. Appellate bodies may: 

(a) affirm the finding and the sanction imposed by the original 

(b) affirm the finding and reduce, but not eliminate, the sanc- 
tion, in accordance with parts 44 and 44(a) of this code. 

(c) remand the case to the original board, in accordance with 
parts 44 and 44(b). 

(d) dismiss the case, in accordance with parts 44 and 44(c). 

44. Deference shall be given to the determinations of lower 

(a) sanctions may only be reduced if found to be grossly 
disproportionate to the offense. 

(b) cases may be remanded to the original board if specified pro- 

cedural errors or errors in interpretation of University regula- 
tions were so substantial as to effectively deny the respon- 
dent a fair hearing, or if new and significant evidence became 
available which could not have been discovered by a proper- 
ly dilignet respondent before or during the original 
hearing.'**' The decision of the lower board on remand shall 
be final and conclusive. 

(c) cases may be dismissed only if the finding is held to be ar- 
bitrary and capricious.'*^' 

(d) decisions of the Appellate Board shall be recommendations 
to the Director of Judicial Programs.'^' Decisions of the 
Senate Committee on Student Conduct shall be recommen- 
dations to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. 

45. The imposition of sanctions will normally be deferred during the 
pendency of appellate proceedings, at the discretion of the Direc- 
tor of Judicial Programs. 

Disciplinary Files and Records 

46. Case referrals may result in the development of a disciplinary file 
in the name of the respondent, which shall be voided if the respon- 
dent is found innocent of the charges.*^" The files of respondents 
found guilty of any of the charges against them will be retained 
as a disciplinary record for three years from the date of the letter 
providing notice of final disciplinary action. '^^' Disciplinary 
records may be retained for longer periods of time or permanent- 
ly, if so specified in the sanction. 

47. Disciplinary records may be voided'"' by the Director of Judicial 
Programs for good cause, upon written petition of respondents. 
Factors to be considered in review of such petitions shall include: 

(a) the present demeanor of the respondent 

(b) the conduct of the respondent subsequent to the violation. 

(c) the nature of the violation and the severity of any damage, 
injury, or harm resulting from it. 

48. Denials of petitions to void disciplinary records shall be appealable 
to the Senate Committee on Student Conduct, which will apply 
the standard of review specified in parts 44 and 44(c). The re- 
quirements for appeals as set forth in parts 40 and 41 shall be 

49. Disciplinary records retained for less than ninety days or 
designated as "permanent" shall not be voided without unusual 
and compelling justification.'^^' 


1 The L Diversity is not designed or equipped to rehabilit.ite or m- 
capacitate persons who pose a substantial threat to themselves 
or to others. It may be necessary, therefore, to remove those in- 
dividuals from the campus and to sever the institutional relation- 
ship with them, as provided in this code of conduct and by other 
University regulations.-" 

Any punishment imposed in accordance with the code may have 
the value of discouraging the offender and others from engaging 
in future misbehavior. In cases of minor disciplinary violations, 
the particular form of punishment may also be deslj.;nt'd to draw 
upon the educational resources of the I niverslty In order to bring 
about a lasting and reasoned change In behavior. The underlying 
rationale for punishment need not rest on deterrence or "reform" 
alone, however. A just punishment may also be Imposed because 
it is "deserved" and because punishment for willful offenses af- 
firms the autonomy and Integrity of the offender. The latter con- 
cept was well expressed by D.J B. Hawkins In his essay "Punish- 
ment and Moral Responsibility" In 7 Modern Law Review 205: 
The vice of regarding punishment entirely from the points of view 
of reformation and deterrence lies precisely in forgetting that a 
just punishment Is deserved. The punishment of men then ceases 
to be essentially different from the training of animals, and the 
way Is open for the totalitarian state to undertake the forcible 
improvement of Its citizens without regard to whether their con- 
duct has made them morally liable to social coercion or not. But 
merit and demerit, reward and punishment, have a different 
significance as applied to men and as applied to animals. A dog 
may be called a good dog or a bad dog, but his goodness or 
badness can be finally explained in terms of heredity and environ- 
ment. A man, however, is a person, and we Instinctively recognize 
that he has a certain ultimate personal responsibility for at least 
some of his actions. Hence merit and demerit, reward and punish- 
ment, have an irreducible Individual significance as applied to men. 
This Is the dignity and the tragedy of the human person. 
A similar view was expressed by Justice Powell, dissenting in Coss 
V. Lopez (42 L, Ed, 2d 725. 745): 

Education in any meaningful sense Includes the incalcatlon 
of an understanding in each pupil of the necessity of rules 
and obedience thereto. This understanding is no less Impor- 
tant than learning to read and write. One who does not com- 
prehend the meaning and necessity of discipline Is handicap- 
ped not merely in his education but throughout his subse- 
quent life. In an age when the home and church play a 
diminishing role in shaping the character and value 
judgements of the young, a heavier responsibility falls upon 
the schools. When an immature student merits censure for 
his conduct, he Is rendered a disservice If appropriate sanc- 
tions are not applied 
2. An effori is made in the code to use a simplified numbering and 
lettering system, without use of Roman numerals or subsets of 

letters and numbers. Any part of the code can be found by 
reference to one number and one letter (e.g., part 10(a) explains 
the meaning of expulsion). 

3. Culpable conduct should include conscious acts posing a substan- 
tial risk of harm to others (e.g.. throwing a heavy object out a 
tenth floor window above a sidewalk). If the act itself, however, 
is unintended (eg,, one is distracted by a noise while climbing 
a flight of stairs and drops a heavy object) the individual may have 
failed to use reasonable care, but is not normally deserving of 
the moral stigma associated with a "conviction" for a disciplinary 

4. Former students may be charged for violations which allegedly 
occurred during their enrollment at the University. 

5. Colleges and Universities are not expected to develop disciplinary 
regulations which are written with the scope or precision or a 
criminal code. Rare occasions may arise when conduct is so in- 
herently and patently dangerous to the individual or to others that 
extraordinary action not specifically authorized m the rules must 
be taken. 

6. The terms "suspension" and "interim suspension" are to be 
distinguished throughout the code and are not interchangeable. 

7. Disciplinary removal from University housing should be 
distinguished from administrative removal for violations of the 
residence contract. The latter does not leave students with a 
disciplinary record and does not come under the purview of this 

8. The standard set forth here represents the minimal procedural 
protection to be accorded to students charged with most 
disciplinary violations. Students who are subject to lengthy suspen- 
sions or to expulsion may be entitled to more formal procedures, 
including a hearing with a right to cross-examine the witnesses 
against them. Goas v. Lopez 419 U.S. 565 (1975). 

9. The Supreme Court has recently rejected the theory that state 
schools are bound by principles of federal administrative law re- 
quiring agencies to follow their own regulations. Board of 
Cnrators, University of Nlssoari v. HorowiU 55 L. Ed 2d 
124. 136. See, generally, "violations by Agencies of Their Own 
Regulations" 87 Harvard Law Review 629 (1974). 

10. Respondents in disciplmar\ proceedings may be directed to answer 
questions concerning their conduct. Students who refuse to answer 
on grounds of the Fifth Amendment privilege may be informed 
that the hearing panel could draw negative inferences from their 
refusal which might result in their suspension or dismissal. If the 
student then elects to answer, his statements could not be used 
against him in either state or federal court. Garrity v. New 
Jersey 385 U.S. 493 (1967). See also Fnmtanl v. Ewi^eben 
297 F. Supp. 1163 (N.D. cal, 1969). 

11. The "controlled substances" or "illegal drugs" prohibited in this 
section are set forth in Schedules I through V in Article 27, part 
279 of the Annotated Code of Maryland. 

12. Colleges and Universities should be a forum for the free expres- 
sion of ideas. In the recent past, however, unpopular speakers 
have been prevented from addressing campus audiences by 
students who effectively "shouted them down." Both Yale and 
Stanford Universities have treated such actions (which are to be 
distinguished from minor and occasional heckling) as serious 
disciplinary violations. See the "Report from the Committee on 
Freedom of Expression Yale University" which is available in the 
Judicial Programs Office. 

The following langutige from the Yale report may be used to 
elaborate upon the intent and scope of part 9(k) of this code: 

1. "There is no right to protest within a University building in 
such a way that any University activity is disrupted. The ad- 
ministration, however, may wish to permit some symbolic dis- 
sent within a building but outside the meeting room, for ex- 
ample, a single picket or a distributor of handbills." 

2. "(A) member of the audience may protest in a silent, sym- 
bolic fashion, for example, by wearing a black arm band. More 
active forms of protest may be tolerated such as briefly boo- 
ing, clapping hands or heckling. But any disruptive acitivity 
must stop (and not be repeated) when the chair or an ap- 
propriate University official requests silence. 

3. "Nor are racial insults or any other 'fighting words* a valid 
ground for disruption or physical attack . . . The banning or 
obstruction of lawful speech can never be justified on such 
grounds as that the speech or the speaker is deemed irrespon- 
sible, orrensive, unscholarly. or untrue." 

13. A compilation of published regulations which have been review- 
ed and approved by the Vice Chancellor shall be available for 
public inspection during normal business hours in the Judicial 
Programs Office. 

14. The "controlled substances" or "illegal drugs" prohibited in this 
section are set forth in Schedules I through V in Article 27. part 
279 of the Annotated Code of Maryland. 

15. This part and parts twelve and thirteen represent an attempt to 
give needed guidance to those who are assessing penalties. 
Moreover, the direction of the guidance is toward imposition of 
more severe disciplinary sanctions in serious cases. Nonetheless, 
the language concerning "mitigating factors" is broad enough to 
give decision makers considerable leeway to "do justice", depen- 
ding upon the facts in each case. The burden of establishing facts 
in mitigation should, of course, be upon the respondent. 

16. There does not seem to K .mv rational basis for Imposing less 
severe penalties for atti-mpts thjn Un completed violations. The 
authoris of the Model Peoal Code, for example, have written 

To the extent that ^cnlcncmg depends upon the antisocial 
disposition of the actor and the demonstrated need for a cor- 
rective action, there is likely to be little difference in the gravi- 
ty of the required measures depending on the consummation 
or the failure of the plan 
See LaFave, Criminal Law Treatise p. 453. 

17. These procedures are analaguus to those found In the "emergen- 
cy" disciplinary rules adopted by the Board of Regents in 1971 
and are consistent with the formal opinion of the Maryland At- 
torney General on this subject, dated January 23. 1969. See also 
Goss V. Lopez, 419 U.S. 565 (1975). 

Nothing in this provision would prohibit the Vice Chancellor from 
modifying the terms of an Interim suspension, so long as the hear- 
ing requirement specified In part 16 was met. For example, a 
suspended student might be allowed to enter University premises 
solely for the purpose of attending classes. 

18. Staff members in the Judicial Programs Office should endeavor 
to arrange a balanced presentation before the various judicial 
boards and may assist both complainants and respondents. 

19. This language does not effect any change in present policy con- 
cerning the powers of judicial boards. The current 
Undergraduate Catalog provides at page 22 that the "functions" 
of the Judicial Programs Office include "reviewing and/or approv- 
ing the recommendations of the boards . . All board decisions, 
including those rendered by Conference Boards, shall be treated 
as recommendations. 

20. See annotation one, supra. The deterrent effect of punishment 
is diminished if the community Is unaware of the number and 
general nature of sanctions imposed. The Director of Judicial Pro- 
grams may. for example, arrange for publication of the statistical 
report in the campus press each semester. 

21. Boards established pursuant to this section might include modified 
versions of the present "Greek" or residence hall boards. 

22. It is intended that a quorum will consist of three members (out 
of five). The authority to appoint ad hoc boards should be broad- 
ly construed and might be especially useful, for example, when 
a judicial board or the Senate Committee is charged with hearing 
a case involving one of its own members. The final determination 
as to whether a panel is 'unable to hear a case" should be within 
the discretion of the Director of Judicial Programs. 

23. The power of confirmation represents a significant grant of 
authority to the Senate Committee. The committee is presently 
under-utilized and might best contribute to the judicial system 
by becoming more Intimately involved with it. Moreover, confir- 
mation procedures will give committee members direct contact 
with board members and will also allow the committee to exer- 
cise more control over the quality of Judicial Board Decisions. 

24. Proposed bylaws must be submitted to the Attorney General for 

25. It could be a public embarrassment for the University to have a 
student charged with or convicted of a serious crime sit in judg- 
ment over other students in disciplinary proceedings. The various 
state criminal codes are usually so broad and archaic, however, 
that automatic suspension or removal should not result from any 
violation of any law (e.g.. New York makes it a criminal misdea- 
meanor for anyone "to dance continuously in a dance contest for 
twelve or more hours without respite"), 

26. Case referrals should not be limited to members of the "campus 
community." A student who assaults another person on campus 
should not escape University judicial action merely because the 
person assaulted was a visitor (or, as in a recent case, a former 
student who had just withdrawn from the University). 

27. The Director of Judicial Programs may appoint a trained volunteer 
from the campus community to serve as the complainant. It would 
be preferable, however, to employ a "community advocate" to 
present all disciplinary cases. 

Several measures In the code are designed to restore balance in 
disciplinary proceedings, even in those cases in which the com- 
plainant is inexperienced with administrative adjudication: 
(a) a hearing officer may be appointed in complex or serious 
cases. See part 32(p). 

(c) the "disciplinary conference" procedu 
eliminate adversary proceedings in min( 
30-31 and annotation 29. 

is designed to 
cases. See parts 

28. Staff members may consider the mitigating factors specified in 
part 11 to determine the permissible sanction to be imposed if 
the respondent is found guilty of charges. For example, a student 
involved in a minor altercation might be charged pursuant to part 
9(a), but referred to a disciplinary conference, thereby precluding 
the possibility of expulsion or suspension for the alleged 

29. The hearing procedures specified at part 32 need not be followed 
in disciplinary conferences. Instead a disciplinary conference would 
normally consist of an informal non -adversarial meeting between 
the respondent and a staff member in the Judicial Programs Of- 
fice. Complainants would not be required to participate, unless 


their personal testimony was essential to the resolution of a 
dispositive factual issue in the case. Documentary evidence and 
written statements could be relied upon, so long as the respon- 
dent was given access to them in advance and allowed to respond 
to them at the conference. Respondents would also be allowed 
to bring appropriate witnesses with them and might be accom- 
panied by a representative, who may participate in discussions, 
although not in lieu of participation hy the respondent. 
The conference procedure is designed to reduce the steady growth 
of unnecessary legalism in disciplinary proceedings. The worst 
features of the adversary system Oncluding the concept that judicial 
proceedings are a "contest" to be "won" hy clever manipulation 
of procedural rules) undermine respect for the rule of law. Col- 
leges and universities can and should be a testing ground for 
development of carefully reasoned alternatives to cunent pro- 
cedural excesses in the larger society.^ 

Procedures comparable to the disciplinary conference (referred 
to as "structured conversations") are suggested by David L. Kirp 
in his 1976 Stanford Law Review article "Proceduralism and 
Bureaucracy: Due Process in the School Setting" 38 Standford 
Law Review 841: 

The benefits of such conversations in the school setting may 
better be appreciated by contrasting them with the typical 
due process hearing. Hearings are designed to determine the 
facts of a particular controversy, and apply predetermined 
rules to the facts thus found. At that point, the function of 
the hearing is at end. The wisdom of the underlying substan- 
tive rules has no relevance, nor is broader discussion of 
grievances generally encouraged, unless it is somehow perti- 
nent to the dispute at hand 

Conversation knows no such limits. It too serves as a vehicle 
for resolving what are likely to be factually uncomplicated 
disputes, but it does more than that. It enables students to 
feel that they are being listened to and may encourage them 
to raise underlying grievances. It provides administrators with 
a relatively inexpensive vehicle for monitoring, and hence a 
basis for reshaping mstitutional relationships. The outcome 
of these orderly thnufjhtful conversations may well be deci- 
sions different in their particulars from what might otherwise 
have been anticipated; repeated conversations which touch 
upon similar student grievances may ultimately lead 
disciplinarians to reassess whether control is so vital, and col- 
laboration so improbablf. as a means of assuring institutional 

The Conference procedure would not be used in any case which 
might result in any form of separation from the University, Ac- 
cordingly, the procedure appears to meet or exceed the due pro- 
cess requirements set forth by the linited States Supreme Court 
for cases involving suspensions of ten days or less. In Goss v. 
Lopez the Court held: 

we stop short of construing the Due Process Clause to re- 
quire, countrywide, that hearings in connection with short 
suspensions must afford the student the opportunity to secure 
counsel, to confront and cross-examine witnesses supporting 
the charge, or to call his own witnesses to verify his version 
of the incident. Brief disciplinary suspensions are almost 
countless. To impose in each such case even truncated trial- 
type procedures might well overwhelm administrative facilities 
in many places and. by diverting resources, cost more than 
it would save in educational effectiveness. Moreover, further 
formalizing the suspension process and escalating its formality 
and adversary nature may not only make it too costly as a 
regular disciplinary tool but also destroy its effectiveness as 
part of the teaching process. 

On the other hand, requiring effective notice and an infor- 
mal hearing permitting the student to give his version of the 
events will provide a meaningful hedge against erroneous ac- 
tion. At least the disciplinarian vkill be alerted to the existence 
of disputes about facts and arguments about cause and ef- 
fect. He may then determine himself to summon the accuser, 
permit cross-examination, and allow the student to present 
his own witnesses. In more difficult cases, he may permit 
counsel. In any event, his discretion will be more informed 
and we think the risk of error substantially reduced (42 L. 
Ed. 2d 725. 740). 
The case file consists of materials which would be considered 
"educational records", pursuant to the Family Educational Rights 
and Privacy Act. Personal notes of University staff members or 
complainants are not included. 

Determinations made in accordance with parts 30 and 31 are not 

32. Internal subpoenas may be desirable, since cases have arisen in 
which complainants or respondents were unable to present an ef- 
fective case due to the indifference and a lethargy of potential 
witnesses. A student who refuses to respond to a subpoena may 
be charged with a violation of part 9(nt of the code. 

The Director of Judicial programs should not approve a subpoena 
unless the expected testimony would be clearly relevant. Likewise. 
a subpoena designed to embarrass or harass a potential witness 
should not be authorized. 

33. Board members should be disqualified on a case by case basis 
only: permanent removal should be accomplished in accordance 
with Part 25. Board members should not be readily disqualified. 
The term "personal bias" involves animosity toward a party or 

154 favoritism toward the opposite party. See. generally. Davis. Ad- 

ministrative Law Treatise "Bias" Section 12.03. 
34 Sec Benutein v. Real EsUte Commission 221 Md, 221 (1959). 
which established Ihe preponderance" standard for state ad- 
ministrativf proceedings, 

35. Testimony containing hearsay may be heard, if relevant, .\ linal 
determination should not be based on hearsay alone. 

36. Every statement or assertion need not be proven. For example, 
board members may take notice that many students commute to 
the University, 

37 Student presiding officers are often at a disadvantage when the 
respondent is represented by an attorney. The proceedings might 
progress more rapidly and efficiently if a special presiding officer 
were appointed. Generally, a staff member in the Judicial Programs 
Office would be selected for such a responsibility, although other 
University employees with legal training might also be called upon. 

38. Information pertaining to prior findings of disciplinary and 
residence hall violations might be reported, as well as relevant 
criminal convictions. Prior allegations of misconduct should not 
he disclosed. 

39. A disciplinary hearing at the University is not analogous to a 
criminal trial. The presiding officer and the board advisor are 
authorized to exercise active control over the proceedings in order 
to elicit relevant fads and to prevent the harassment or intimida- 
tion t)i witnesses. No party or representative may use threaten- 
ing or abusive language, engage in excessive argumentation, in- 
terrupt the proceedings with redundant or frivolous objections, 
or otherwise disrupt the hearing. 

Students have not been determined to have a constitutional right 
to full legal representation in University disciplinary hearings. The 
privilege of legal representation, granted in this part, should be 
carefully reviewed in any subsequent revision of the code. 

40. Punishment of one or several individuals for the acts of others 
should be avoided if the identities of the specific offenders can 
be readily ascertained 

41. Association does not require formal membership. Individuals who 
might reasonably be regarded as regular participants in group or 
organization activities may be held to be associated with the group 
or organization, 

42. Leaders or spokesmen need not be officially designated or elected. 
For example, if a group or organization accepted or acquiesced 
in the act or statement of an individual associated with it. that 
individual might reasonably be regarded as a leader or a 
spokesman for the group or organization. 

43. "Suspension" includes deferred suspension but not interim 
suspension or suspension which is withheld. See annotation six. 

44. Students left with a disciplinary record after a disciplinary con- 
ference may request that their record be voided, in accordance 
with part 47. Denials may be appealed, pursuant to part 48. 

45. The decision will be "final and conclusive" on the part of the 
judicial hoard, but will remain a recommendation to the Director 
of Judicial Programs, 

46. This part is intended to discourage frivolous appeals. Respondents 
who are genuinely interested in pursuing an appeal can reasonably 
be expected to prepare a written brief, 

47. Appellate bodies which do not give deference (i.e,. a presump- 
tion of validity) to lower board decisions will distort the entire 
disciplinary system. Respondents would be encouraged to "test 
their strategy" and "perfect their technique" before lower boards, 
since the matter would simply be heard again before a "real" board 
with final authority. 

Lower board members usually have the best access to the evidence. 
Including an opportunity to observe the witnesses and to judge 
their demeanor. Members of appellate bodies should be especial- 
ly careful not to modify a sanction or to remand or dismiss a case 
simply because they may personally disagree with the lower 
board's decision. 

The opportunity to appeal adverse decision has not been deter- 
mined to be a requirement of constitutional "due progress" in 
student disciplinary cases.' There is presently no logal obstacle 
to adopting an amendment to the code which would eliminate the 
appellate system altogether. 

48. Respondents who obtain information at the hearing which might 
lead to new evidence are required to request an adjournment 
rather than wait to raise the matter for the first time to appeal. 

49. An arbitrary and capricious decision would he a decision "un- 
supported by any evidence." The cited language has been adopted 
by the Federal Courts as the proper standard of judicial review, 
under the due process clause, of disciplinary determinations made 
by the state boards or agencies. See McDonald v. Board of 
Trustees of the University of Hlinois 375 F Supp 95. 108 
(N.D. 111. 1974). 

50. See annotation 19. 

51. Voided files will be so marked, shall not be kept with active 
disciplinary records, and shall not leave any student with a 
disciplinary record. 

52. Disciplinary records may be reported to third parties, in accor- 
dance with University regulations and applicable state and federal 

53. Void records shall be treated in the 
tion 51. 

set forth in annota- 

54. The scope of review shall be ijmitcil to the factors specified in 
part 47. An inquiry Into the initial determination of guilt or in- 
nocence is not permitted. For example, when considering the 
"nature" of the violation, pursuant to part 47(c), it is to be assumed 
that the violation occurred and that the respondent was respon- 
sible for it. 

55. Some discretion must be retained to void even "permanent" 
disciplinary records. It may be unnecessar>'. for example, to burden 
a graduating senior with a lifelong stigma for an act committed 
as a freshman. Social norms also change rapidly. "Unacceptable" 
conduct in one generation may become permissable and com- 
monplace in the next,

A. Policy On Amplifying 

(As adopted by University Senate. June 2. 1970) 

1. Public address systems, loudspeakers, and other forms of sound 
amplifying equipment may be used in any of the following outdoor 
areas of the campus: 

(a) Physical education and intramural field between University 
Boulevard and parking area 1 

(b) North Mall between Campus Drive and Washington -Baltimore 

(c) South Mall between Kegents Drive and Washington -Baltimore 

<d) Athletic practice fields east of Byrd Stadium. 

2. The use of public address systems, loudspeakers and other forms 
of sound amplifying equipment must be restricted in the Central Mall 
area between 8 a.m. and 6 pm, on class days in order to minimize 
the likelihood of disturbing classes and other academic activities. 
However. such equipment may be used in the Central Mall during these 
hours if the procedures outlined below are followed. All equipment 
used in Central Mall must be secured through the Office of the Direc- 
tor of the Physical Plant or through the S.G.A, office. 

(a) Public address systems, loudspeakers and other forms of sound 
amplifying equipment (except in "b" below), must be secured from 
the Office of the Director of Physical Plant, South Administration 
Building, by requesting such equipment in writing at least twelve (12) 
hours in advance. Any University student or oganization which fulfills 
the following requirements will be permitted to use the amplifying 

(1) An individual must be currently enrolled as a student, part- 
time or full-time, at the University or currently employed by the 

(2) Any organization or activity must have been recognized by 
the SGA Legislature and must at the time of the request have 
official recognition as a University organization or activity. 

(b) Bullhorns will be available upon surrender of the I.D. card, 
in the SGA office and in the Office of the Director of the Physical 
Plant. Bullhorns secured in this manner may be used on the Central 
Mall without prior permission. Any individual may use only one 
bullhorn at a time. 

.1. Public address systems, loudspeakers and other forms of sound 
amplifying equipment may be used in outdoor areas of the campus 
other than those listed above (sections 1 and 2) by securing approval 
in writing at least 5 days in advance from the Facilities Use Commit- 
tee by application to the Office of the Director of the Physical Plant 
Approval will be granted for use of amplifying equipment in these areas 
only if there is a high probability that the planned activity will not 
disrupt or disturb other University activities or if the area has not been 
previously reserved. Permission will be granted to use amplifying equip- 
ment in the vicinity of residence halls only upon specific written re- 
quest of the student government of the residence halls affected. 
4. Individual students or organizational representatives using ampli- 
fying equipment must accept responsibility for any complaints or distur- 
bances or disrflptlon received from persons in University academic 
and/or residence buildings. 

B. Policy On Demonstrations 

(As adopted by University Senate, June 2, 1970) 

I General Statement 

a. The University of .Maryland cherishes the right of individual 
students or student groups to dissent and to demonstrate, provided 
such demonstrations do not disrupt normal campus activities, or in- 
fringe upon the rights of others. 

b. On the other hand, thi University will not condone behavior 
which violates the freedom of speech, choice, assembly, or movement 

of other individuals or groups In short. rcsp<mslble dissent carries 
with it a sensitivity for the civil rights of others. 

c. Accordingly, the University will take whatever steps it deems 
necessary to 

(1) protect the right of any individual or group to demonstrate 
and publicly proclaim any view, however unpopular: 

(2) protect the freedom of speech, assembly and movement of any 
individual or group which is the object of demonstrations. 

To achieve the foregoing objectives the following guidelines have been 
developed for operation at College Park: 
II. Guidelines For General Demonstrations 

a. Unscheduled demonstrations, "teach-ins," rallies, or equivalent 
activities may be held by recogni/id university organizations and ac- 
tivities, full or part-time students, and current employees of the Univer- 
sity in the areas defined below provided that the activity does not in- 
terfere with any function for which that space has been reserved in 

1 The Central Mall 

2, Physical education and intramural field between University 
Boulevard and parking area 1. 

3, Athletic practice fields east of Byrd Stadium. 

4. North Mall between Campus Drive and Washington-Baltimore 

5. South Mall between Regents Drive and Washington-Baltimore 

All activities in these areas must be conducted so as to avoid In- 
terference with the regularly scheduled functions of the library and/or 
classrooms adjacent to the area and in compliance with the provisions 
contained in Ilg, 1-8. 

Failure to reserve space will not validate the privilege of conduct- 
ing the appropriate activity. However. In the event of two or more 
groups desiring to use a given space, an approved space reservation 
will take precedence over an unscheduled activity. If two or more 
groups desire a space when no reservation has been made, the first 
come, first served principle will apply. 

b. Recognized University organizations and activities, full or part- 
time students, and current employees of the University who wish to 
schedule a demonstration, "teach-in." rally, or equivalent activity, may 
request the space through the facilities reservation procedure up to 
24 hours in advance. Demonstrations will be permitted in the loca- 
tions outlined in lla above, unless the space has previously been reserv- 
ed or is in use for academic activities or intercollegiate athletic team 
practices Demonstrations may be held at other locations on the cam- 
pus subject to approval by the \'ice Chancellor for Student Affairs. 
Students who participate in demonstrations which have not been ap- 
proved may he considered in violation of University policy. (Excerpt 
as pnnided in llA, above.) 

c. Demonstration rallies, or "teach-ins" may be conducted in or 
adjacent to any residential building with the specific written concur- 
rence of the student government of the unit or area concerned. Any 
such rallies, demonstrations or "teach-ins" which may be authorized 
by the appropriate student government must conform to the general 
procedures contained in Ilg, 1-S. 

d. Demonstrations in the form of parades on streets may be con- 
ducted with the specific approval of route and time secured 48 hours 
in advance from the University Public Safety and Security Office. 

e Although groups may sponsor or organize demonstrations, 
rallies, "teach-ins", or picketing activities, the fact of group sponsor- 
ship or organization in no way relieves individuals of the responsibili- 
ty for their own conduct, and each individual participating in such 
activities is accountable for compliance with the provisions of this 

f. Persons not members of the University student body, faculty 
or staff may participate in demonstrations, rallies, picketing, teach- 
ins or equivalent activities only upon invitation by a bona fide stu- 
dent, faculty or staff member. All non-students are obligated to the 
terms of this policy during participation in such activities. Since per- 
sons not student, faculty or staff members are not subject to Univer- 
sity discipline procedures, failure to comply with terms of this policy 
may result In action under terms of appropriate Maryland law. 

g. In addition to the above provisions, the following guidelines 
will apply to all demonstrations, 

1. Reasonable access to and exit from any office or building 
must be maintained. The right-of-way on public streets and sidewalks 
will be maintained. 

2. Demonstrators will not attempt to force the cancellation or 
interruption of any event sponsored by a University office or by a faculty 
or student group or by any group authorized to use University facilities. 

3. Classes or other educational activities in classroom buildings 
and the library will not be disrupted. 

4. The use of public address systems, loudspeakers, etc., in 
the vicinity of academic and residence buildings will follow procedures 
set forth above. 

5. Demonstrations may be carried on Inside of the University 
buildings only as provided in Sections lie and 4 or with approval of 
the Facilities Use Committee as outlined in the University General and 
Academic Regulations, 

6. Where an invited speaker is the object of protest, students 
and faculty may demonstrate outside the building where the lecture 
will take place. Demonstrators who wish to enter the building must 
do so as members of the audience and must give the speaker a respect- 
ful hearing. Signs, placards or other paraphernalia associated with a 
demonstration will not be carried into the building. 

7. University property must be protected at all times. 

8. The safety and well-being of members of the University com- 
munity collectively and individually must be protected at alt times. 

h. Complaints received from users of the Library or classrooms 
adjacent to the defined areas (lla,) will be grounds for disciplinary ac- 


tion against individuals and/or groups sponsoring or participating in 
rallies, "teach-ins" or demonstrations in these areas. 

III. Guidelines For Demonstrations In Connection With Placement 

a. Anyone wishing to question or protest the on-campus presence 
of any recruiting organization should contact the Director of the Career 
Development Center or his representative in advance. 

b. Should any member of the University Community wish to 
discuss or protest the internal policies of any recruiting organization, 
the Director of the Career Development Center must be contacted for 
assistance in communicating directly with the appropriate represen- 
tatives of said organization. 

c. All sales cease promptly at 2:00 a.m. 

d. No person judged to be intoxicated by the sales attendant or 
his supervisor may be ser\ed any alcoholic beverage. 

e. Maintenance of reasonable order and decorum with special con- 
cern for the avoidance of becoming a nuisance to non -participants. 
including both on-campus and off-campus communities. 

5. When alcoholic beverages are to be sold or are obtained from 
a distributor, a license is required and specific written approval for 
the event must be obtained from the Office of Campus Activities. The 
Office of Campus Activities may in some Instances require approval 
from the Concessions Committee. 

6. Appropriate planning and implementation for the event involv- 
ing the sale of alcoholic beverages includes: The securing of a license 
from the Board of License Commissioners, in Hyattsville. at least five 
days before an event. An approved Space Reservation form must ac- 
company the request for the license. Acquisition of a license will legally 
place on the person signing the license application the res[X)nsibility 
for adherence to all the provisions of applicable laws during the event. 

EiceptiooB to this Policy 

Private functions not involving the sale of alcoholic beverages; and 
functions sponsored by non-campus groups contracting with the cam- 
pus self-support agencies for facilities and services are specific excep- 
tions from these procedures. Permission to serve alcoholic beverages 
must be obtained from the person or the department responsible for 
the operation of the facility. 


Failure t<i comply with the University policy or State and County 
alcoholic beverage laws may result in judicial action and restriction 
on further use of University facilities. Violations of State and County 
laws will be reported to the appropriate civil authorities. 

c. Demonstration guidelines outlined in Section llg. 1-8 are 

d. Demonstrations in conjunction with placement programs con- 
ducted in the Career Development Center's facility or other facility 
shall be considered not to infringe upon the rights of others and the 
normal functioning of placement programs provided that demonstra- 
tions are conducted outside of the facility and do not interfere with 
free and open access to the Career Development Center facilities by 
those students, faculty, staff, and visitors who wish to conduct business 
within the framework of established placement programs. 

IV, Special Guideline Pertaining to the Stamp l^nion 

a. No demonstrations, rallies, ■"teach-ins" or equivalent activities 
may be held In the lobbies or corridors of the Stamp Union. 

b. Demonstrations may be held in assigned rooms of the Stamp 
Union by recognized student organizations following procedures for 
reserving space which have been outlined by the Stamp Union Board. 

\'. Guidelines For Picketing 

a. Legal Rights and Limitations. 

Orderly picketing is a legally established form of expression which 
recognizes the individual's right of free expression subject only to such 
reasonable limitations as are imposed by State legislation and Univer- 
sity regulations. These limitations are intended to protect the rights 
of the picketer. the student body and the public with particular con- 
cern for safety, preservation of normal academic life and order, and 
the protection of persons and property. 

b. Conduct of Pickelers. 

1. Picketers are subject to those regulations listed above in 
Section II. g. 1-8. 

2. Picketers will not disrupt any University activity by making 
excessive noise In the vicinity of any University building. 

3. The University Health Service is off-limits to picketers 
because special silence and other welfare safety factors are involved. 

C. Alcoholic Beverage 
Policy and Procedures 

Information contained in this section to change pending legislation. 


Regulations forbid unauthorized possession, use or distribution of 

alcoholic beverages on or in University property. University policy is 

consistent with State and County laws and restricts on-Campus use 

of alcoholic beverages in specified areas. 

Policies Specific to an Event 

1. .Alcoholic beverages may not be possessed, consumed or 
distributed on the campus except where written approval has been 
obtained for the event, 

2, The event must be sponsored by a recognized alumni, facul- 
tv/staff, or student group, and be duly registered with (he appropriate 

Ibb space reservation office. 

3. Compliance with all pertinent University regulations and State, 
County, or Municipal laws is mandatory, and in particular, sponsors 
and/or alcoholic event managers shall exercise due caution to ensure 
the following: 

a. No person under the legal age for drinking shall be sold or 
served alcoholic beverages- 

b- .Ml sales of alcoholic beverages must cease promptly at 2:00 
a.m. or earlier as stipulated by the Office of Campus Activities. 

c. Reasonable order and decorum shall be maintained during 
such events to avoid disturbance of adjacent campus and off-campus 

d. Alcoholic beverages may not be sold or furnished to any 
persiin wh(i, at the time of the sale or exchange, is visibly under the 
mfluence uf alcohol 

D. Smoking Policy 
& Guidelines 


A. A significant percentage of faculty, staff and students do not 

B. Smoke is offensive to many non-smokers. 

C. Smoke is harmful and even debilitating to some individuals 
due to their physical condition, 

D. There is evidence that suggests that there is at least a 
reasonable prospect that passive smoke inhalation is harm-* 
ful to non-smokers. 


In response to the above considerations, it is hereby established 
as the policy of the College Park Campus to achieve a public environ- 
ment as close to smoke-free as practicably possible. Obtaining and 
maintaining this result will require the willingness, understanding, and 
patience of all members of the Campus community working together. 


The following guidelines shall service to implement the Campus 
Smoking Policy: 

,^. Smoking is prohibited in indoor locations where smokers 
and non-smokers occupy the same area. Such areas include: 

1 , Academic areas: classrooms, lecture halls, seminar rooms. 
laboratories, libraries, computing facilities. 

2, Conference rooms, auditoria. exhibition areas, indoor 
athletic facilities, theaters, pavilions, and retail stores. 

3, Health facilities. 

4, Common/public areas (shared spaces not fully enclosed 
by floor to ceiling partitions and doors) including: 
stairwells, elevators, escalators, lobbies, hallways, waiting 
rooms, reception areas, restrooms. and customer service 

5, Any area in which a fire or safety hazard exists. 

B. t'nit heads, or their designees, may establish the following 
locations as "Smoking Permitted Areas": 

1, Up to one-third of dining, large lounge and other large 
open spaces, as long as ventilation is adequate. Smoking 
of cigars and pipes, however, is prohibited. 

2, Rooms that have closed doors and floor-to-ceiling parti- 
tions as long as ventilation is adequate and non-smokers 
in adjacent areas are not exposed to second hand or side- 
stream smoke. 

3, The Director of the Stamp Union may. at his/her discre- 
tion, allow groups and organizations with permanent of- 
fices in the Union to determine the smoking policy In 
those offices. Such Individual policies must adhere to the 
restrictions set forth in Section III. B, 2 of this policy. 
The Director of the Stamp Union may. at his/her discre- 
tion, allow cigarette smoking by groups making use of 
the Grand Ballroom, the Colony Ballroom, the Atrium, 
and other rooms in the Union if he/she determines that 
it is appropriate to the nature of the event scheduled, 

C. As a general rule, preferential consideration shall be given 
to non-smokers whenever it is clear that they are being ex- 
posed involuntarily to smoke. 


Unit heads, or their designees, are responsible for: 

A. Assuring that this policy is communicated to everyone within 
their jurisdiction and to all new members of the Campus 

B. Approving and designating Smoking Permitted Areas. (It is 
desirable but may not be possible to identify suitable smok- 
ing spaces In all buildings.) 

C. Implementing the policy and guidelines and assuring that 
appropriate notice is provided. 

Developing guidelines to embrace all the special circumstances in the 
campus is impossible. If unit heads find circumstances in their areas 
that they believe warrant exception from particular provisions in this 
Smoking Policy and Guidelines, they may address requests for specific 
local exceptions to the Chancellor or his/her designee. 


This policy relies on the thoughtfulness, consideration, and 
cooperation of smokers and non-smokers for its success. It is the 
responsibility of all members of the campus community to observe 
this Smoking Policy and Guidelines and to direct those who choose 
to smoke to designated Smoking Permitted areas. 

Complaints or concerns regarding this policy or disputes regard- 
ing its implementation should be referred to the immediate supervisor 
for resolution. If a resolution cannot be reached, the matter will be 
referred by the supervisor to the appropriate Department Head or Vice 
Chancellor for mediation. 


This Smoking Policy does not supercede more restrictive policies 
which may be in force in compliance with federal, state, or local laws 
and ordinances, but shall be in addition thereto. 


The provisions and Guidelines attaching to this Smoking Policy 
shall be subject to future review and revision to ensure that its objec- 
tive is obtained. Especial attention shal be given to determining if 
voluntary compliance without disciplinary sanctions has proven 


This Smoking Policy shall be effective Spring Semester. 1986.
