Neil Moore takes command of the new Center for Criminal Sciences 75th Celebration Continues

Volume one, Number four

From the President

Copyright © 2005 Indiana Institute of Technology Arthur E. Snyder, Ed.D., President

Greetings! As summer quickly slips away, we at Indiana Tech are eagerly preparing for the start of another academic year. Students in the College of Professional Studies already have begun the 2005-2006 year, and traditional students will soon be returning to the Fort Wayne campus for the fall semester.

Trends is published quarterly for students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Indiana Tech by the department of marketing and communications.

This new year brings several exciting developments to Indiana Tech. The Fort Wayne campus will inaugurate the Labor of Love for Learning (L3) outdoor amphitheater with a free concert by Blessid Union of Souls on Sept. 1. Students will find an outdoor basketball court and sand volleyball pit as new recreation options. Volleyball also makes its return to the sports lineup at Indiana Tech with a new women’s team competing this fall.

Janet Schutte, Marketing Director Samantha Teter, Marketing Generalist

There are also new academic choices. Students in both the traditional program and the College of Professional Studies have new majors to consider. One of these is criminal justice, the first offering in our Center for Criminal Sciences. We are very fortunate to have former Fort Wayne Police Chief T. Neil Moore, whom you’ll read more about in this issue of Trends, as the director of the program. Other new options are a communication degree for traditional students and an information systems degree for CPS students.

The New L3 Amphitheatre Opens with a Bang

A Blessid Event Indiana Tech will welcome national recording group “Blessid Union of Souls” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1 in the new Labor of Love for Learning (L3) amphitheatre on the Fort Wayne campus. The free concert is part of the university’s 75th anniversary and is open to Indiana Tech students as well as other local colleges and universities and the general public. “The students I have talked to are really looking forward to this event,” said Joel Harmeyer, associate director of student life. “They are excited to see the band, the new amphitheater and to meet students from IPFW and St. Francis. I see it as a nice way for incoming freshmen to meet fellow students outside of an academic setting.” Blessid Union of Souls formed back in 1990 with members Eliot Sloan, Jeff Pence, C.P. Roth, and Eddie Hedges as the lineup, adding band member Tony Clark in 1996. They describe their sound as “rural soul,” a mix of pop, R&B and soul. The group enjoyed six Top 10 hits, including “I Believe,” which was one of 1995’s most played songs, as well as “Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me for Me).” After releasing four albums together, band members Roth and Hedges left the band in 2002 and were soon replaced by Bryan Billhimer and Shaun Schaefer. The new lineup released their first album together in May of this year, entitled “Perception.” Lead singer Eliot Sloan said fan response to the new album is positive and reassuring. “You think you’re coming out with something good but you never know,” Sloan said. Their live performances of the new work have garnered great response to validate the band’s own opinions.

The band is currently focusing on promoting their CD as well as touring, which is Sloan’s favorite part of the process. “I love this stage of performing and touring. There’s also something inspiring about playing at colleges. I never went to college, so this is my way of going. I get to go and play but not do any homework,” Sloan joked. Indiana Tech students can expect a fun, energetic concert with a mix of old and new songs. The band likes to interact with the crowd at their live performances and is looking forward to playing in Fort Wayne again. Sloan added that Indiana Tech students can help them out by buying their new CD and calling the local radio stations with requests for their first single off of the album, “Could’ve Been With You,” which is starting to gain radio play in many markets. For more information about Blessid Union of Souls, visit their web site at www.blessidunion.net.

CONCERT DETAILS Where: L3 Amphitheatre at Indiana Tech’s Fort Wayne Campus When: Thursday, Sept. 1st 7:00pm Cost: FREE! What to Bring: Blanket or folding chair to enjoy the show from the lawn. Plus, the band will be signing autographs after the show, so bring your Blessid Union cd’s, posters, or t-shirts. Please, no alcoholic beverages on campus.

Through the Through the Decades

Throughout its 75 years, Indiana Tech has stayed true to its mission of prepar-

ing students for successful careers. From the 1930s into the new millennium

Indiana Tech graduates have been leaders in their fields. The following vignettes follow this rich tradition by highlighting one graduate from each decade of the university’s history.

1930s Jack McGowen, BSAEE 1939 Retired President, Douglas Aircraft Co.

Memories of Indiana Tech: “One humorous memory comes to mind - I remember sitting in chemistry class, when the professor stopped cold and looked at me and said ‘Mr. McGowen, I don’t mind you not listening in class, or going to sleep, but I don’t like you reading the paper while I’m lecturing!’ At that time Indiana Tech guaranteed you a job while you went to school and I was a waiter at night and lived at the YMCA. Indiana Tech was good training and a pleasant experience.” How Indiana Tech contributed to his success: “I knew from the time I was 8 years old that I wanted to be an aircraft engineer. Indiana Tech was one of few universities offering that type of engineering degree and I saw an ad and discussed it with my father and he agreed it would be good training.”

1940s Frank A. Denbrock, P.E., BSEE 1948 Owner, DA Consulting Engineers

Memories of Indiana Tech: “I met my wife of soon to be 58 years (who was attending another college) at the Miller’s Café where we were paid 40 cents an hour and got two free meals a day. I also remember the very friendly, helpful people (including the professors) and the city of Fort Wayne. I have long-lasting friendships with Indiana Tech graduates and their families all over the world.”

2

How Indiana Tech contributed to his success: “The electrical engineering program was state-of-the-art with advice to keep your eyes open for continuing developments and improvements. Indiana Tech taught me that education never ends; it is a continuous process as long as you live.”

1950s Joseph Foster, BSAE 1950 Proposal Manager, Retired, Boeing

Memories of Indiana Tech “I came to Indiana Tech in 1948 when I was 18 years old and 99% of the guys in school were on the G.I. bill from WWII. We had no dorms at that time, so I remember living in a house with a bunch of guys, and I was always the one who cooked meals, and being the young one of the group, got stuck cleaning up after meals also!” How Indiana Tech contributed to his success “During school, I worked at the airport as an auto mechanic, making 75 cents an hour. When I received my degree, I was able to start out in a new job making $250 a month. At Indiana Tech, the professors were dedicated to our learning.”

1960s David J. Nash, BSEE 1965 President, Parsons Brinckerhoff Bldg.

Memories of Indiana Tech: “Graduating after struggling my first two years and sailing (through) my last two.”

e Decades How Indiana Tech contributed to his success: “The engineering education I received and the accreditation of the engineering curriculum which enabled me to be registered.”

1970s

Richard Kenefic, BSEE 1971 Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering, Indiana Tech

Memories of Indiana Tech “Dumping a trashcan full of water out the third story window of my room (in the old alumni quadrangle) onto my roommate. Mark was an athlete, and pretty quick, so he saw it coming and (mostly) got out of the way – I should have dumped it out of the second floor window. In my defense, Mark used to wake me up in the middle of the night singing Temptations songs.”

How Indiana Tech contributed to his success: “I graduated from Tech with a lot of self confidence. I did OK in high school, but I wasn’t a star, and I never cracked 1200 on the SAT, but I went on to earn a Ph.D. in electrical engineering (from Syracuse) and a second masters degree in mechanical engineering (from Purdue). By the way, Mark’s younger sister was a student of mine when I was teaching as an adjunct in the 80’s. She married another student at Tech and their son, Matt, is now a junior in our program. So I just missed Matt’s uncle with that trashcan full of water. Small world.”

1980s Gregory Lynch, BSCE 1981 Vice President of Engineering, Almet, Inc.,

Memories of Indiana Tech: “Making new friends. There were a lot of international students as well, and I became close to a number of them. It was interesting to learn cultures of other countries and it was always fun to discuss politics of our differences. Also, graduation day was great to share with family and my classmates.” How Indiana Tech contributed to his success: “There was a lot of individualized attention. Hands-on in the labs, and the professors were practical and cared about the students. My education enabled me to earn my professional engineers license, which is essential in the field of civil engineering.”

1990s

Joseph Jordan, BSBA 1991 Director, East Wayne Street Center, Fort Wayne

Memories of Indiana Tech: “A positive memory of Indiana Tech was playing basketball for Coach Dan Kline and having the fan support from the student body and the staff.”

How Indiana Tech contributed to his success: “Learning to get along with people and being a team player has helped me. I feel Tech was a safe, nurturing, and encouraging environment. It also allowed my leadership skills to blossom by encouraging students to step forward and take on leadership roles.”

2000s Thomas Smead, ASBA 2001, BSBA 2003, MBA 2005 Manager of Manufacturing, Superior Essex

Memories of Indiana Tech: “My very first undergraduate class. It had been 25 years since I stepped foot in a classroom and I was terrified! I remember looking around at the diversity of students and thinking, ‘What have I gotten myself into.’ The instructor did something very special and memorable. Each student was asked to introduce themselves, state the number of classes taken to this point, and give a brief story of their most memorable experience so far in their education. When it came to my turn, I told them this was my first class and that it had been 25 years since engaging in academics. To my surprise, the instructor initiated a round of applause. To this day, I can still hear the students confidently shouting, ‘you can do it, YOU CAN DO IT!’ ” How Indiana Tech contributed to his success: “Intrinsically, the education experience has helped me gain self-confidence, broadened social and cultural understanding, and employ critical thinking skills. In effect, the education experience from Tech has taught me to fully engage as a life-long learner. Indiana Tech is one of the few institutions that provide their students with real world courses and real world rigors. My education gave me the skills and tools to effectively engage and inspire people, drive results through accountability, think strategically, and adapt to a dynamic global environment.”

Manin Charge

Former Police Chief Leads New Criminal Sciences Program

I

ndiana Tech got a lucky break when developing the new Center for Criminal Sciences – the expertise of one of Fort Wayne’s top law enforcement professionals, former police chief T. Neil Moore. Moore has an impressive background in law enforcement as well as academics. Moore’s father was a police officer, so he has known law enforcement since his youth. After graduating with his bachelor’s degree, Moore was an officer with the Indiana State excise police for two years before joining the Fort Wayne Police Department in 1977 as a patrol officer. In 1988, he was appointed Chief of Police, where his ten-year tenure included directing a collaborative development of a community policing strategic plan, which received national awards. When the university started discussing this program as a new degree offering, President Arthur Snyder placed a phone call to Moore, asking for his participation in crafting the program. “Dr. Snyder had a vision for what the criminal justice program would look like and where it would go and asked for my assistance,” Moore said. “What I found intriguing was that he asked me to develop the program within the parameters of Indiana Tech’s strengths: business, computer studies, and engineering.” After some further discussion with Snyder, Dr. Russ Baker from the Fort Wayne campus, and Bob Freewalt of the Indianapolis campus, the team decided to hold

focus groups with current practitioners to find out what the current needs were in the law enforcement field. “What we discovered from these focus groups was that while our law enforcement concentration was on target with current needs, we also were told of the need for experienced crime analysis personnel, especially within cybercrime and fraud as well as forensic accounting.” This realization led the university to also include the crime analysis concentration. Further talk with the focus groups also revealed that there was a need for a shorter course of work that provided training for mid-level supervisors and managers, therefore, creating the niche certificate in law enforcement supervision. Moore agrees that what makes the Indiana Tech program unique among other criminal justice programs are the law enforcement administration and crime analysis concentrations as well as the certificate program. The new program will benefit the community in multiple ways. Rusty Goodpaster, deputy director of the Law Enforcement Academy in Plainfield cites the need for more educated and professional law enforcement officers in our post 9/11 society. “Historically, law enforcement has been reactive,” Goodpaster said. “The crime analysis concentration will allow trained personnel to be much more proactive -- helping assist the community to not only control crime, but to prevent crime as well.” The Plainfield academy trains 80 percent of Indiana’s new law enforcement personnel, and Goodpaster believes

that with programs like Indiana Tech’s, law enforcement can become not just an occupation, but a profession. Allen Country Sheriff James Herman applauds the appointment of Moore as director of criminal sciences. “I believe that with his vision of what is needed in law enforcement now, and in the future, and his ability to impart that knowledge to instructors and police officers, he is exactly what is needed in the academic world to make this program a success and a standout among other institutions,” Herman explained. Snyder couldn’t agree more. “The addition of Neil to our team ensures that our Center for Criminal Sciences will be kicked off on the right foot, taking advantage of his expertise, professionalism and enthusiasm for the criminal justice field.” Snyder adds that this program will evolve into offering much more in years ahead. “Our plan is to include an emergency services and preparedness aspect to the program in the future.”

Sneak-Peek at the New L3

Andorfer Commons Schaffer Center 4

Amphitheatre 3

1 2

Construction of the new L3 (“Labor of Love of Learning”) Amphitheatre is well under way. Its contemporary style and placement right in the heart of the Fort Wayne Campus will make it an integral part of the school’s identity. It was designed with multiple uses in mind, too. On one side of the structure will be a large main stage (1) overlooking a grass seating area (2) for large

presentations and performances. On the back side of the main stage is a smaller platform with a builtin podium that overlooks several tiers of concrete benches (3) - a great place for smaller events or for professors to take their students for a sunny outside lecture. Scully Square (4), a new patio area with sculptures and landscaping, is also being added.
