Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences, like the higher education spectrum across North Carolina has faced two years of declining budgets, but in spite of the recent bleak picture, East Carolina University’s academic cornerstone remains strongly committed to its mission and to serving its ever-increasing constituencies including students or regional and global communities. Alan White Dean, Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences From where has come the strength to persevere – and to succeed – in these times? American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Emerson could have been writing for Harriot College: what lies within us is the eternal fire of liberal arts education, a liberating power to think and act creatively. Who we are – whether College administrators, faculty, staff, or students – collectively and collaboratively – is a community of free human beings inspired to respond to the moment, to the challenge at hand. I have said it before: the liberal arts are absolutely timely. But the essence of who we are and how we conduct ourselves in the context of twenty-first century education, however, remains a fundamental polestar for us. Swiss writer and architect Max Frisch wrote, “Time does not change us. It just unfolds us.” Even in this austere period, Harriot College has unfolded and blossomed, true to its core values: the liberal arts are timeless. What you are about to read in this electronic issue of Cornerstone are engaging stories. Our Distinguished Professorship is superbly represented by the History Department’s scholarteacher Charles Calhoun. Burrell Montz is charting a new course over in the Geography Department. And as the College (along with the rest of the university under the leadership of David Weismiller) embarks on the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools validation and accreditation process, we are looking both inward and outward: to refine our mission, to deliver the best possible education, and to measure continually our own progress toward our lofty goals. Advancement Councilor Shirley Carraway is a glowing example of vision and service. This year’s student spotlight focuses on the multi-faceted Tiffany Lee. For the first time, you will hear directly from our Development Officer, Jennifer Tripp. And you will be proud of the long roster of donors whose private giving enhances and helps to expand on Harriot College successes. Be sure that your name is there! In closing, it still remains hard to believe that Keats Sparrow, former dean, is no longer with us. In February, Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences – his College – sponsored a campus-based celebration and commemoration of Keats’s life and career. The tributes from onand off-campus speakers at the event confirmed that Keats was, like Thomas Harriot, a broadranging polymath with astonishingly diverse interests and areas of expertise. Harriot College, with its own polymathic goals, is healthy, functioning well, and enjoying many successes. So, read and enjoy! 2 Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor Special Honors 1994 Distinguished Professor 2003 Distinguished Professor 1995 Distinguished Professor 2006 Distinguished Professor 1996 Distinguished Professor 2007 Distinguished Professor 1997 Distinguished Professor 2008 Distinguished Professor 2001 Distinguished Professor 2009 Distinguished Professor 2002 Distinguished Professor 2010 Distinguished Professor Dr. Stan Riggs, Geology Dr. Tinsley Yarbrough, Political Science Dr. Peter Makuck, English Dr. Mark Brinson, Biology Dr. Paul Gemperline, Chemistry Dr. Bodo Nischan, History Dr. C.

Calhoun, History Dr. Jeffrey Carl Johnson, Sociology H arriot C ollege of A rts and S ciences D istinguished Professor Committee Criteria: Because each field has special qualities that characterize exemplary work, the committee’s evaluation shall allow for disciplinary differences. Primarily, however, an Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor shall: • hold the rank of professor; • have at least five years of service at East Carolina prior to the academic year in which the award is made; • have an outstanding teaching/advising, research/creative productivity, and professional service record: • demonstrate excellence in undergraduate and (if appropriate) graduate teaching and advising; • be a recognized, national/international leader in the field demonstrated through publications or creative productivity, contributions to professional organizations, and national/international honors; • reflect through various forms of high-quality service a genuine concern for the department, College, and University; and • be a model scholar of his or her liberal arts discipline. Department chairs are eligible for nomination. Nomination Procedure: Before February 15, a department chair may nominate one professor from his or her department for the Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professorship. If the nominee is the department chair, the nomination process should be initiated by the chair of the Personnel Committee. The nomination package shall include only the following: • a nomination letter of no more than two pages from the chair written after the chair has consulted with the department’s personnel committee; • the professor’s current vita; • letters from three departmental colleagues attesting to the professor’s high level of performance in teaching/advising, research/creative productivity, and professional service; and • letters from three eminent faculty members from other universities attesting to the professor’s national or international contributions to the field. Limitation: Because a Harriot College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professorship represents a lifetime distinction, the award shall be bestowed on a winner only once. Announcement: The Dean shall announce the Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor at the Harriot College’s fall convocation and feature the winner in the Harriot College’s newsletter. The College office shall also publicize the award throughout the University and to the University’s many constituencies. (Unanimously approved by the College Chairs, October 2 1, 1993. ADDENDUM # 1: In August 1994, the Phi Beta Kappa Association of Pitt County accepted an invitation from Dean Keats Sparrow to become a co-sponsor of the Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professorship and its public lecture.

ADDENDUM #4: In February 2008, the College Chairs unanimously approved two changes recommended by Dean Alan White. Revised 2/08.) 3 What makes a professor “distinguished?” Since the program’s early development (dating from 1993) and inception in 1994-1995 with the announcement of Stan Riggs as the College’s first named distinguished professor, Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences has blazed the academic way at East Carolina University with the College (now Harriot College) of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor designations. In recognition of a scholar’s teaching and advising, research and creative productivity, and professional service, Harriot College’s distinguished professors are national and international leaders in their fields, are renowned teachers, and are models of their liberal arts disciplines. Since the distinction is bestowed only once in a scholar’s career, the professorship honors lifetime achievement. In August 2009, Dean Alan R. White announced at the College’s convocation the selection of Professor Charles W. Calhoun, Department of History, as the 2009-2010 Distinguished Professor. Entering Yale University, Calhoun had initially thought to pursue political science, but his exposure to great history professors – a seminal force in his undergraduate education – drew him to the discipline of history. While at Yale, Calhoun consciously took courses that examined all periods of American history, but a junior year seminar on the Democratic Party from presidents Cleveland to Wilson raised questions that have stayed with him 4 and informed his research throughout his career. Upon completion of his baccalaureate degree, he had been accepted into law school; but his jurisprudence “advocacy” was outweighed by his passion for political history, so he taught for a year in an independent school so that he could apply to graduate school at Columbia University. At Columbia, Calhoun was exposed to the great American historian John Garraty, an influential scholar, a dedicated teacher, a fine advisor, and a superb editor. After Garraty returned Calhoun’s first two dissertation chapters – marked up – Calhoun submitted a second version, at which point Garraty stated that Calhoun knew what he was doing and to come back when the dissertation was finished! Calhoun was drawn to the subtle and not-so-subtle complexities of America’s Gilded Age, a fascinating period that can get lost between the period of the American Civil War and the onset of World War I. The Gilded Age is when America began a particularly rapid movement toward cultural diversification (through immigration), toward urbanization, toward industrialization, and cumulatively, toward an interconnectedness that characterizes contemporary American (and, indeed global) society. Self-described as a “dying breed,” political historian Calhoun asserts that while social and cultural history are recent developments in the field, politics has long defined American culture. Significant political decisions in their period (what has been done and what has not been done, policy-wise) shape every aspect of modern life. Still an active researcher whose work informs his teaching, Calhoun states, “the best scholars make the best teachers. Students benefit when professors are committed to real scholarly engagement – to the discovery of knowledge as well as to the transmission of knowledge.” Calhoun’s latest book came out in the summer of 2010, but this was preceded by another ten books and dozens and dozens of chapters, articles, papers, presentations, and reviews. Originally brought to East Carolina University in 1989 to serve as chair of the History Department, Calhoun moved back into the research arena and into the classroom in 1992. He comments generously that he is in a department of distinguished scholars in their fields and that his own selection as Distinguished Professor is really representative of high standards of the department as a whole. His enthusiasm and dedication are obvious: “History is so much more than what I do. I have a complete commitment to my discipline – it is who I am, and I really feel that I have no choice in the matter. It is both my vocation and my avocation.” Calhoun observed that over a hundred years ago, John Bassett Moore (professor of international law at Columbia University 1891-1924) remarked, with delight, that Columbia University was paying him for what he loved to do. What jurisprudence may have lost as its “advocate,” the discipline of history has certainly gained with its 2009-2010 Distinguished Professor, Charles Calhoun. His wife, Bonnie, shares his dedication to the field: she teaches history at Greenville’s Oakwood School; and his daughter (in preparatory school in New York) is considering history as her major in college. D i s ti n g u i s h e d A cc o m p li s h m e n t s Contributing to the professional realm, Calhoun founded the Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era (SHGAPE). He served as the organization’s president in 1991 and 1992. He served as chair of the SHGAPE Publications Committee that established the Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era and is a member of the journal’s editorial and executive boards. In 2006, in recognition of his service to SHGAPE, the society named its biennial best article prize the “Fishel-Calhoun Prize.” Within his area of research, Calhoun has received more than a dozen grants from organizations that include the American Historical Association, the National Endowment for the Humanities, ECU, and Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences. He has published nine books, with two currently in progress, and has authored nearly 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, papers, book reviews, and book chapters. He is a member of the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, the Southern Historical Association, and the Center for the Study of the Presidency.

The pastor of Williamston’s Memorial Baptist Church (1915-1920) and an acting president of Chowan College (now University in Murfreesboro, North Carolina), William Burrell is one personal map-point for Harriot College’s new chair of the Department of Geography. Burrell Montz, a vibrant woman with world connections, recalls that she made only a lackluster start in her undergraduate career. She preferred to shoot baskets at the gym of Mary Washington College (now the University of Mary Washington) rather than engage seriously with academics. There, a fellow basket-shooter was a “cool” geography professor whose class she took when she – a visual learner – fell in love with the visuals-dominated discipline. A second course with the “blue blazer conservative” geography professor confirmed the abiding geography fascination that would inform and shape her career. Montz’s particular “region” of geography focuses on the social and political aspects of natural disasters and hazards. Her interest is personal as well as professional: her master’s thesis at Oklahoma State University dealt with residential relocation in northeastern Pennsylvania – where her family lived. Following June 1972’s Hurricane Agnes, homes there sustained major damage, and investigating relocation, with its social and policy aspects was, indeed, very close to home. Headstone of William Burrell, Burrell Montz’s namesake, at Woodlawn Cemetary near Williamston Memorial Baptist Church, Williamston, NC 6 With her science background and her strong social science interests, Montz has continued to look at the interrelationship of weather “events,” property values (perceived and actual), and hazard area information disclosure. Her researches took her as a Fulbright Research Scholar to the University of Waikato (Hamilton, New Zealand) where she worked in the Center for Environmental and Resource Studies; and across the nation and across the globe, she has looked at the range of behavioral responses by the various entities that would have vested interests – residents, real estate professionals, planners, and local politicians, among others – in hazards response. Her scholarly travels have taken her to Ravello, Italy; the University of Aberdeen, Scotland; and the Escuela Politécnica del Ejercito in Sangolquí, Pinchincha Province, Ecuador. Lakes Research Consortium, the National Research Council, and the National Geographic Society (a partial listing, only); and her recent presentations number over two dozen. She has collaborated with colleagues from Ljubljana, Slovenia, and has published in Geografický Časopis (Geographical Journal ) of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, one of many journals for which she is on the editorial board. Her respected scholarship is certainly “dominating the boards” in her chosen academic area. Montz enthusiastically remarks that she has been lucky in her breadth of experience and has enjoyed the role of social science “police officer,” especially in natural science-dense interdisciplinary groups in which she has often participated. Her work on National Science Foundation panels, as a regional planner in Michigan, with the American Meteorological Society, and as director of the national Applied Geography Conference (which she ran for seven years) reflects her own liberal arts emphasis on how and to whom hazards information is both delivered and received. Happy in her work at the University of Binghamton (in upstate New York), Montz was drawn to Harriot College’s Department of Geography because of the department’s diversity, including the planning program; its respected cultural and physical geographers; and its strong collegial relationship with atmospheric scientists. Supporting her many and varied professional pursuits are Montz’s family: husband Paul, son Cliff who works in internet and digital marketing, and daughter Laura who is in law school. Yes, Burrell Montz is very much alive, is connected by family to the eastern North Carolina coastal plain, and is “all over the map” as chair of Harriot College’s Department of Geography. Dave Saville, FEMA News Photo Since her arrival in eastern North Carolina, departmental programs are being developed, especially the bachelor of science in Geographic Information Systems and Technology and the brand new (available online in the fall of 2010) bachelor of science with a concentration in applied atmospheric science. In addition to bringing her own energy to Harriot College, she has brought with her from Binghamton a talented graduate student Gary Monitz who is working with her on sustainability and planning for both acute and chronic hazards. Her national reputation rests upon her enormous scholarly output, including four books and over 110 chapters, refereed articles and proceedings, working papers and reports, editorial products, and book reviews. Her grant receipts are impressive, with funding from the National Science Foundation, the United States Department of Agriculture, the Natural Hazards Research and Applications Information Center (Boulder, CO), the Great Greene County, NC - Roads, bridges, farms, and homes all were targets of flooding throughout eastern North Carolina in the aftermath of Hurricane Floyd. The residents of this home near Greenville, NC evacuated as floodwaters rose rapidly along the Tar River.

Okmyung Bin, Stephen Polasky. 2003 7 Building New Tomorrows “Build thee more stately mansions, o my soul, while the swift seasons roll. Leave thy low-vaulted past; shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, ’til thou at length art free, leaving thy outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences is participating with the rest of East Carolina University in the upcoming SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) re-accreditation process—a comprehensive campus-wide examination of programs, their delivery, and their effectiveness for students. As David Weismiller, ECU’s Associate Provost for Institutional Planning, Assessment, and Research, states, “SACS really stands for ‘Students Are Central to Success.” It is not enough merely to say that an educational institution is doing an excellent job: rather, appropriate accountability demands that educators look at themselves, establish appropriate assessment tools, and engage in ongoing self- and external assessment so that the students who are served are served most effectively and in a manner that meets the rapidly shifting parameters of twenty-first century life. Driven by the federal government’s mandates for educational “justification,” regional accreditation is moving toward an ongoing assurance of quality. Unlike many nations, where a ministry of education [an essentially political body] is, in effect, the certification of quality for educational institutions, the American process of internal and external peer review both democratizes the assessment process and provides our educators with an opportunity to be part of this student-centered process. Harriot College’s fifteen departments, seventeen interdisciplinary programs, and nine auxiliary operations will be a part of an evidencecentered design process, one heavily invested in the critical thinking that is at the core of liberal arts education. The College is also developing methods to increase student engagement and “raise the academic bar” so that challenged students become productive members of a society that demands high levels of compentencies in both knowledge itself and in responsive, creative critical thinking. ECU and Harriot College Tomorrow goals contribute to students prepared for their own tomorrows beyond the academy. Each unit in the College is identifying how it works toward the College’s overall goals and strategic directions (see the criteria table, right). But SACS is much more than dead-end data-collection. 8 EVI DENCE CENTERE D DESIGN • Leadership • Global Economy • Economic Prosperity • Health • Quality of Life Claim(s) What do I want or need to say about the student (office, function)? Course Evidence What does the student (office, function) have to do to prove that he/she (it) has the knowledge and skills claimed? Program Assessment Tools and Activities What assessment tools and/or activities will elicit the evidence that I need about the student’s (office’s, function’s) knowledge and skills (outcome)? Institution Weismiller observes, “Data-collection is just the beginning. It is a catalyst for the best kind of thoughtful, reflective, and continuous change in how we serve our students and how we prepare them to live richly fulfilling lives serving others.” The SACS process provides Harriot College (and other ECU units) with unique opportunities of self-definition and self-assessment. East Carolina University is a SACS leader. ECU’s own exemplary success in the recent interim report (prior to the 2012-2013 sequence of off-site and on-site reviews) has made us an institutional model for all of North Carolina. Dr. Weismiller proudly comments, “We are contributing to the regional [assessment] conversation with our alreadyin place quality enhancement program. Sister institutions around the state are following our lead in ongoing monitoring of the success of their missions. Only 22% of institutions who submitted interim reports were in compliance. ECU is in that select group.” So what might all this mean for Harriot College? As the College engages in the SACS process, it will be better-positioned to receive resources. The College’s carefully-articulated mission, vision, goals, and priorities and the College’s ability to showcase both its past and present accomplishments and its ongoing commitment to quality-enhancement and long-term teaching effectiveness will, together, bring more resources to Harriot College. The happy “circle” is that bringing more resources to the College will position Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences to serve its students more effectively. The liberal arts education provided by Harriot College has always affirmed that students are central to success: the SACS process provides an important spotlight on how Harriot College and its students live out that success and build toward new tomorrows.

In her career and in her whole life, Carraway, has sought out ways to grow personally and ways to improve the situations in which she has found herself. “Each experience is a stepping stone to the next experience.” As a child, Carraway thought that her elementary school’s speech-language professional (then called a speech therapist) was “cool.” But when she entered East Carolina University, her sights were on a business career. After courses in business, however, she found that the business route was not the one which she wished to travel, so she returned to her language passion, earning a bachelor of science in Speech, Language, and Auditory Pathology in 1975. Her work as a speech and language technician stimulated her to think creatively about ways to improve the field as a whole. Carraway saw needs for better coordination among special educators, so she pursued a master of arts in supervision and licensure in administration. From that start, Carraway was recruited to be an assistant principal. In this position, Carraway observed the dynamics of academic administration and again found ways to make things better. Along this part of her life journey, Carraway earned an Educational Specialist Degree – Administration in 1992. Her dedication to a continuous trajectory of improvement led to her becoming principal of Falkland Elementary School in western Pitt County. Her five years of challenges and learning there equipped her for her next career opportunity: principal of Rose High School here in Greenville. Carraway serves as Harriot College Advancement Councilor in the historic Ragsdale Building. 10 A special aspect of her time at Rose High was her development of leadership qualities. As Carraway says, “My leadership role at Rose High really prepared mentors and models such as North Carolina educator, Dudley Flood. She continues to seek out people who know a lot and to reflect on ways to become better professionally and personally. She wants her legacy to be that she “made things better” wherever she landed. Carraway’s enormous energy and enormous talents are now part of the Harriot College support system, too. Her work on the Harriot College Advancement Council is infused with energy and commitment. “Life is about choices, and then we make the best of the choices that we have made. We move on because life moves on. As for choices, I try, always, to choose happiness,” affirms Carraway. “And I love reading as a leisure activity.” But her reading choices are works that are as intensely energized as she herself is – David Baldacci or Stephen King. Shirley Carraway, with her accountant husband Lloyd Folks, is the proud mother of two sons. The older resides in Grifton, and Carraway says that this feet-on-the-ground guy “keeps me honest.” The younger was just married, and Carraway relished being included with the bride’s family in the delights of wedding planning. Open, engaging, warm, genuine, bright, productive, and happy. Those words describe the person and the life of Shirley Carraway, who energetically embraces challenges. “I don’t want to miss a beat.” Harriot College of Arts and Sciences benefits from Carraway’s many gifts, and she certainly has not missed a beat so far. me for opportunities afterwards.” Concurrent with her work at Falkland Elementary and Rose High, she also served as the SACS [Southern Association of Colleges and Schools] Facilitator for eight Martin and Lenoir County elementary schools. (Readers can learn more about ECU’s involvement with its own SACS process in the feature article that begins on page 8.) Carraway became Pitt County’s Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction and rose to the Associate Superintendent in that school district.. During this time, she also received her doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. Then, from Pitt County, she was tapped to become superintendent of the Orange County school system, a position she held until 2007. Carraway says that she tries to “find good in everything and something to use from every experience.” And she has had influential PHOTO COURTESY OF www.jhroseclassof75.com Returning to her alma mater in 2008, Carraway took on new challenges. She became the Director of Special Projects (responsible for the Chancellor’s Leadership Academy and the development of an Early College High School program); and in 2010 she was selected as Principal Investigator for a Teacher Quality Partnership grant. Funded with resources from the U. S. Department of Education, ECU’s grant was one of only 22 grant awards nationwide in the first wave of funding and is currently one of only two in North Carolina – a stellar achievement for Carraway. The grant is looking at the teacher preparation program offered at ECU and finding ways to help teacher graduates “hit the classrooms as effective teachers in year one” and even more ways to support new teachers in the initial stages of their careers.

Rose High School in Greenville, NC Carraway served as principal at both schools. 11 Dean Emeritus Remembered and Celebrated by Lorraine Hale Robinson On Sunday, February 28, 2010, members of East Carolina University gathered with family and special friends of Keats Sparrow in the Great Rooms of Mendenhall Student Center in order to commemorate and celebrate the extraordinary career of Dean Emeritus Sparrow. The untimely death of Dean Sparrow in early November left a significant void in many places in and beyond the ECU community. As people gathered, they enjoyed a photo retrospective, both personal and professional, of Sparrow’s many activities and signed or wrote individual messages and anecdotes in a memory book presented to Mrs. Sparrow. Dean Alan R. White served host for the occasion and spoke of his own experience – not as Keats Sparrow’s “replacement” but as Dean Sparrow’s successor. Other speakers included Provost Marilyn Sheerer, Professor Gladys Howell (wife of Chancellor Emeritus John Howell and professor emerita, Anthropology), Dr. Larry Tise (History), Dr. Charles Fantazzi (Classics), Professor Maury York (Joyner Library), Dr. Jeffrey Crow (North Carolina Division of Archives and History, Raleigh), Professor Michael Dorsey (Art), Dr. Holly Mathews (Anthropology), Professor Alex Albright (English and founding editor of the North Carolina Literary Review), and Dr. Ron Mitchelson (Interim Chair, Department of English). Tributes contained anecdotes ranging from profoundly serious to rollickingly humorous, celebrating the many sides of Keats Sparrow. The high regard in which Dean Emeritus Sparrow was and is held was unmistakable: Sparrow was a skilled and wise administrator, a genuine scholar in more areas than can be listed in a short article, a revitalizer of careers, a supporter of noble causes and institutions 12 such as libraries and historical and literary societies, a visionary about the literary art in North Carolina, a mentor, and – above all, a cherished friend. Dean Alan R. White announced at the gathering that the Premier Lecture on the 2010-2011 Harriot College Voyages of Discovery Lecture Series is being given to honor Keats Sparrow’s memory. The featured speaker will be Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and PBS host. The public is invited to join the ECU community at Wright Auditorium at 7:00 PM on October 6, 2010, for this presentation.

Her father emigrated from Hong Kong, and without knowing the English language or American culture, but with determination and tenacity, he pursued his dream of becoming a physician. Because of her father’s medical training, the family was constantly uprooted from state to state. Tiffany spent most of her early life in St. Louis, Missouri, where her father was a neurology resident at Washington University. And from him, Tiffany learned early the virtues of hard work, fortitude, and never giving up on a passion. After moving to Greenville, Tiffany earned her Biotechnology degree concurrent with completing her North Carolina high school requirements. The required time management skills necessary to accomplish the two goals were important tools in her years at East Carolina University. While completing her Biotechnology degree, she worked with Dr. Kori Brewer (Associate Professor and Associate Chief, Division of Research in the Brody School of Medicine’s Department of Emergency Medicine) and Dr. Jian Ding (Associate Professor in Brody’s Department of Physiology), studying spinal cord injury mechanisms. This research experience equipped her for her successful competition for a prestigious summer research fellowship at Princeton University’s Molecular Biology Department Lewis Sigler Genomic Institute, enabling her to spend a semester at the National Institute of Health’s Neuroscience department during her ECU sophomore year. Tiffany affirms, “Coming to East Carolina University to pursue my interest in Neuroscience was the best decision I ever made. East Carolina University’s Early Assurance to Brody School of Medicine offered me the most flexible education while simultaneously providing me with both the breadth and depth of education that I needed to face the challenges of tomorrow.” East Carolina University not only trains scholars but leaders. While she was a first year student, she was selected to participate in Leadershape® training.* She has gone on to found the ECU Running Club; she was selected to be the President of the National Honor Leadership Society, Omicron Delta Kappa; and she is an executive member of the ECU Chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. Faculty members at East Carolina University also shape students like Tiffany Lee: for her and countless others, Dr. Michael Bassman (named First Distinguished Honors Professor of ECU’s new 14 Honors College) was available to provide advice; Dr. Tuan Tran (in Harriot College’s Department of Psychology) equipped students to look at scientific research critically; and Dr. Holly Mathews (in Harriot College’s Department of Anthropology) challenged students to look beyond their comfort zone and to reach out to others. “East Carolina University is truly the ‘cornerstone’ of my academic and personal development. After completing my medical training at the Brody School of Medicine and my residency, I intend to return to Eastern North Carolina to give back to the community using what I gained from East Carolina University. And I will always be proud to be a Pirate. Arrrgh!” *a not-for-profit organization that is committed to helping train young adults not only to lead, but also to lead with integrity The Impact of Giving by Jennifer Tripp As Director of Development for Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences as well as being a proud member of our alumni community, I am especially aware of the fundamental importance of our annual giving campaign. The College, its fifteen departments and its seventeen interdisciplinary programs all benefit enormously from the gifts made by alumni and friends. Support of the THCAS Annual Fund not only helps our Dean, department chairs, and program directors meet financial goals, but it also builds our academic community by enhancing the Collegeâ€™s abilities to accomplish its diverse missions and by laying the groundwork for future philanthropy. When donors understand the impact of their annual giving contribution, they become our ongoing partners. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund give us the ability to provide a first-class educational experience to students. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund give us the ability to provide a first-class educational experience to students, attract and retain outstanding faculty and staff, and expand and enhance our campus. The Annual Fund helps the College to build and sustain a team of gifted faculty and to attract a diverse student body. Unrestricted gifts are particularly valuable because they allow Harriot College to respond more rapidly to the changing needs of College faculty and students and to direct resources to where they are needed most. THCAS Development office provides multiple giving processes for donors: direct mail, an annual Telefund drive, and continuous online contribution opportunities. Some of you may not be aware of how our Telefund works. Current ECU students call alumni and friends. This personal connection with ECU today is a bridge to donors whose contributions will help to build ECU tomorrow. Such support is vital as Harriot College continues to meet its education, research, and service goals â€” regionally, and increasingly, globally. Every gift is important, regardless of amount. My job as Director of Development (a position long held by Scott Wells who is now the Collegeâ€™s Major Gifts Officer) is to help donors identify how their resources can make Harriot College visions become Harriot College realities. During these challenging economic times, Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences is grateful to its many donors for providing funds that make possible and enhance so many college-related activates. Through gifts to the THCAS Annual Fund, the College will continue to provide the best liberal arts education possible, giving our students a richer life and a measurable competitive advantage in the twenty-first century. 15 Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences Annual Honor Roll of Donors During the past year, hundreds of friends have generously supported Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences with their financial gifts. In these days of shrinking government funding, contributions from institutions and individuals provide expanded programming, academic opportunities, and liberal arts enrichment for students and faculty.
