Survey Examines Campus Climate

Word to Grads: ‘Help Others’
fter four years of cheering for the Vulcans, Tina Desantis received her own round of applause when she received her degree during Cal U’s 175th Commencement. A Cal U cheerleader since her freshman year, Desantis was one of more than 400 students to accept a bachelor’s degree at the Dec. 15 undergraduate ceremony. “I am the oldest child and the first to graduate (from college), so today means a lot to my parents and sisters,” she said, echoing sentiments familiar to many graduates in attendance. “I am excited to graduate and ready to move on, but I am nervous about the next step in my life.” Adele Lynn ’74 addressed master’s degree candidates on Dec. 14, and Teri Dunn ’80 delivered remarks at the undergraduate event. In all, Acting University President Geraldine M. Jones conferred degrees upon more than 1,400 students, including those whose diplomas were awarded in absentia. “As you prepare to walk across the stage this morning to
receive your diploma, please pause for a second and give yourself a mental pat on the back,” Jones told the graduates. “Take in the moment, and bask in your success. You have worked hard, you have persevered, and you have accomplished something significant. “Be proud of yourself. Think of the parents and family and friends who helped you and encouraged you along the way. And remember that this is truly the beginning of an exciting chapter in your life — a different one, of course, but an exciting one nonetheless.” The Commencement ceremonies in the Convocation Center recognized both August and December graduates. Among them was Sean Hudson, who majored in social work. “I finished my classes in the summer, but walking across the stage for Commencement is something I have been excited about for a long time,” he said before the ceremony. “I’m one of the few in my family to graduate from a fouryear institution, and I am very excited today.” Before undergraduates received their diplomas, Walter — Continued on page 3
Cal U Hosts Academic League
igh school students showcased their knowledge during a TriCounty Academic League competition Dec. 13 in the Performance Center. The league sponsors quiz-bowl style competition where teams battle each other in fast-paced rounds of questions about academic trivia. The competition featured 10 school districts — each with a junior and a senior team — from Washington, Greene and Fayette counties. The teams will face off in multiple competitions at Cal U before attempting to qualify for a state tournament in the spring. “This competition used to be held at Waynesburg University,” said Walter Czekaj, the event organizer for Cal U. “Some of the coaches came to Cal U — Continued on page 2

hat’s the “climate” on campus? That’s the underlying question behind the Cal U Campus Climate Survey, a comprehensive study of the living, working and Dr. Sue Rankin learning environment for Cal U students, faculty and staff. The survey begins Feb. 4, with a goal of collecting input from at least 30 percent of the campus community. Once their results have been submitted, participants who complete the confidential survey can register for a chance to win an iPad. Winners — one student, one faculty member and one member of the staff — will be chosen at random from among those who register. A link to the survey will be available beginning Feb. 4 at www.calu.edu. Smartphone users can access the survey by using the QR code displayed on placards posted in campus buildings and Vulcan Flyer shuttles.
Beyond diversity More than a “diversity” study, the 20minute Campus Climate Survey will provide data about the personal experiences of campus community members, their perceptions of the campus environment, and what Cal U is doing to promote inclusion and fair treatment for all. It is meant to assess whether Cal U is welcoming and inclusive, providing all groups on campus with a safe, positive environment and equal access to University services. The survey will be conducted by Rankin & Associates Consulting Inc., based in State College, Pa. Under the direction of Dr. Sue Rankin, the firm has conducted similar surveys for more than 110 campuses and other organizations, including public universities, research institutions, law schools and nonprofit groups. The survey questions were developed with extensive input from a committee of Cal U staff, faculty and students, and the project was approved by the University’s Institutional Review Board. But Rankin, who recently retired from Penn State University, noted that no institution can assess its own climate without bias. “You need an objective, outside researcher to make the assessment,” she said. “That’s why I’m involved.” — Continued on page 3

Police Officers Train at Cal U
hey hope never to put their training into practice, but police must always prepare for the worst. So this month officers from three PASSHE universities and several local municipalities practiced responding to a bad guy with a gun. California University Police Department, in conjunction with the Washington County Chiefs of Police, hosted two “active shooter” training sessions, Jan. 8-9 and Jan. 10-11, for western Pennsylvania police departments. Each two-day training module included exercises that tested the officers’ physical and emotional response to an active shooter. Officers practiced response tactics using nonlethal, air-powered weapons, and they visualized real-life city scenarios with the aid of a tabletop model. The training was not organized in response to any specific incident, said outgoing Cal U police chief Robert Downey Jr. “You always want to be proactive,“ he said. “Nowadays, you see more instances where there are active shooters in schools and on campuses. We want our officers to be trained, so they can respond to any type of situation.” As the officers refreshed their skills in incident management and tactical response, they prepared for the heightened

emotions that arise during an emergency. Using a model city and toy police cars, they reacted to incidents presented in real time. As the scenarios progressed, escalating circumstances forced them to think and act quickly. “As the suspect enters the house, you notice there are children getting ice cream
from an ice cream truck at the end of the cul-de-sac!” exclaimed Lt. John Sakoian. “What are you going to do?” Sakoian, the instructor at both training sessions, is a graduate of the FBI National Academy’s 163rd session and a 40-year law enforcement veteran who currently serves with the Upper St. Clair
Angelone Named Woman of Year
he President’s Commission for the Status of Women honored a retired Cal U administrator with a lifetime achievement award for her efforts on behalf of gender equity during the fall 2012 Outstanding Woman of the Year luncheon on Dec. 5 at Kara Alumni House. Dr. Lenora Angelone ’89, ’92, ’97, who retired in 2012 as vice president for Student Affairs after a 40-year career at Cal U, was awarded the commission’s first Lifetime Achievement Legacy Award for her exemplary leadership abilities and support of women. In accepting the award, Angelone reflected on the 22-year history of the President’s Commission Dr. Lenora and the increasing Angelone importance of women at Cal U during that time. “In 1990, the paths were not cobblestone, the dorms were not suites, the classrooms were not ‘smart.’ Likewise, Cal U was different for women. There were fewer of us in leadership roles and we had little voice.” Angelone served on a 1992 committee that identified a need for improvement at Cal U in the area of gender equity and also noted areas where the University was making progress. “Through time, our collaborations have moved us to action and transformation. Today, we have a female, African-American president. In 1990, not one of us would have dreamed that dream,” she said. Angelone’s career at Cal U also

reflects this transformation. She began as a clerk-typist at the University and would add four degrees to her resume — three of them from Cal U — while also assuming leadership positions in student services. Beginning in 1999, she worked in the Office of Social Equity as special assistant to the president for equal employment and educational opportunity before returning to Student Affairs in 2009 as the area’s first female vice president. Students Alexandria Sabatini and Lisa Spinneweber also were recognized at the luncheon. Sabatini, the fall 2012 Woman of the Year winner in the traditional undergraduate category, graduated in December with a bachelor’s degree in international studies with a concentration in political science and Spanish. Among her many activities at Cal U,
she was a member of the Delta Zeta sorority, serving as president, treasurer, alumni relations chair, scholarship chair, house manager and Homecoming chair. She also was a member of Student Government and was a peer mentor and a member of the College Democrats. Sabatini also has been chosen as a recipient of the California University of Pennsylvania Distinguished Service Award. Spinneweber, the winner in the graduate category, graduated in December from the Master of Science in Nursing, Nursing Administration and Leadership program. A single mother of a 17-year-old son, she is a nurse clinician in the neonatal intensive care unit at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC in Pittsburgh, Pa. Her capstone project at Cal U was a program for the NICU that provides mentors for newly hired nurses.

Police Department. Through Command Excellence LLC, a public safety training company, he has trained more than 700 officers throughout western Pennsylvania. “I have never been through training like this,” said Tyler Gray, a police officer at Slippery Rock University. “We are training for an event that you hope never happens. Everything we do here today will help us keep our campuses and communities safe.” In addition to Cal U and Slippery Rock, Clarion University also participated in the event. Officers from Beaver Falls, Braddock Hills, California Borough, Castle Shannon, Clairton Borough and the Washington County Chiefs of Police attended the sessions. The program was funded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Homeland Security Grant program, Downey said. It was held during the chief ’s final week at Cal U. A police chief at Cal U since 2010, Downey resigned from his University position on Jan. 14 to become chief of Green Tree Borough Police Department, near Pittsburgh. Lt. Michael Miles, a 15-year veteran of the Cal U Police Department, is serving as acting chief while the University conducts a search to fill Downey’s position.
al U will celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a talk about the civil rights leader’s legacy at 11 a.m. Thursday in the Vulcan Theatre, inside the Natali Student Center. Dr. Charles Thomas, an adjunct faculty member in the Communication Department at Slippery Rock University, will
deliver the presentation. In addition to teaching at Slippery Rock, Duquesne University and the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Thomas is the senior pastor at Mt. Carmel Community Baptist Church in Steubenville, Ohio. All members of the Cal U campus community are invited to attend, and the public is welcome at this free event.
for a field trip and liked the campus and how the staff treated them. They actually approached us to be a host.” Connecting the campus to local communities will be one of Czekaj’s main focuses in his new role as community education manager for Cal U. He also will build connections between Cal U and the Carnegie Science Center. Czekaj recently transitioned into the new community-oriented role after years of service as Cal U’s exhibitions coordinator. He keeps student recruitment in mind as he works with visiting educators and students. “These competitions bring local school students to campus,” he said. “These students will be here about 10 times this year. They will be familiar with the student center, where to get their food and where they would spend most of their time as a college student.” Getting high school students familiar with campus is paying off. For the past two years, all seniors on the Jefferson Morgan School District’s Academic League team have enrolled at Cal U. And the current high school students seemed to be enjoying their time on campus. “It is fun to come here, get out of school and participate in the competition,” said Courtney Hitchcock, a senior at Albert Gallatin High School in Uniontown, Pa. “Plus, the food is really good here.” “The (Academic League competition) is a great activity that makes you think,” said Adam Burke, a sophomore at Albert Gallatin. “I feel comfortable here at Cal U, and I think all students will benefit from these visits once they go away for college.”

Advice to Graduates: ‘Help Others’ — Continued from page 1 Harris, chair of the Senior Gift Drive Committee, presented President Jones with a check for more than $11,000 contributed by graduating seniors and their families. Nearly $40,000 has been raised for an endowed scholarship since the first senior class donation was delivered at the spring 2010 Commencement. “Those of us who worked on and contributed to the 2012 Senior Class Gift Drive certainly embrace the idea of a lifelong relationship with Cal U,” Harris said. “As students at Cal U, we have learned that it’s not only important to work, study and set goals for our career. We know that building our character is even more important.” Both Commencement speakers praised Cal U for helping to start their extraordinary careers — and both Lynn and Dunn reminded students to remember others while they pursue their dreams. Lynn has served since 1982 as the founder and owner of The Adele Lynn Leadership Group, an international consulting and training firm whose clients include many Fortune 500 names. Her work on emotional intelligence is offered through strategic partners throughout Latin America, India and Europe “Be prepared for your success. Embrace it,” Lynn advised. “Don’t let arrogance ruin it either. The one thing I learned is that my success is not something for which I can take full credit. My success is about the legions of others who may be invisible, but who stand behind me, beside me and in front of me to pave the way. Be sure to honor them.” Dunn shared her thoughts with graduates who received bachelor’s and associate degrees. A consultant for manufacturers, finance companies and independent dealerships in the office products industry, she currently serves on the board of directors for Rampart Global Inc., an engineering management resource company. Previously, she enjoyed a distinguished 26-year career with Global Imaging Systems companies, rising to global corporate vice president of marketing. Dunn said Cal U looked a lot different when she started in 1976, but she thought it was the greatest place on Earth because it represented independence. “While it has a constantly changing face, Cal has lived up to the same expectations it’s had of all of its students over the last 160 years,” she said. “Cal has become a leader in education and a brand in and of itself. But Cal has left enough of her core that when alumni return to campus,

our hearts are filled with pride.” Dunn told a funny story about literally having her skirt fall down while she was singing in church on Easter Sunday. She called it the most significant personal lesson of her career. “I had been caught up in the moment and wasn’t paying attention to details,” she said. “When I look back at the number of times I would have minimized stress and anxiety by being a little bit more forward thinking, proactively adjusting for change rather than just basking in the good times, my workdays and work relationships would have been a lot more pleasant. “Friends, don’t get caught with your pants down.” President Jones urged the graduates to contribute to the world around them. “Each of us has a responsibility to care for our fellow man, so I ask you to lead the way,” she said. “Ponder how you can lend a hand or make a difference. No matter what career path you choose, those special moments you spend helping others will shape you into a great human being. “May your life be filled with continued successes, just enough challenges to make it interesting, and abundant joy.”

Survey Examines Campus Climate — Continued from page 1
Confidential responses The survey is completely confidential, explained University ombudsperson Dr. Lisa McBride, who is coordinating the project under the auspices of the President’s Commission for the Status of Women and the Office of Social Equity. Survey responses are not collected or stored at Cal U, she stressed. Instead, they are sent directly to Rankin & Associates, where the data will be organized and analyzed. Although information such as the respondents’ position, race, gender and age will be collected, results are reported back to the University in group form only. “We aggregate the data so that no one can be identified, even if they are members of a very small group,” Rankin said. The majority of surveys will be completed online, but paper-and-pencil copies will be available. Participation rates will be reported regularly on the Cal U website, encouraging friendly competition among students, faculty and staff. The campus climate affects the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of everyone at Cal U — resident and commuter students, full-time and part-time faculty, and members of the administration and support staff. “We need everyone to complete the survey and give us their input,” McBride said. “If we are going to use the results effectively, we need all groups on campus to ‘tell it like it is.’”

Action plan The survey will be conducted over a period of two weeks or more, depending on participation. Once it closes, Rankin will analyze the data and create a detailed report, plus an executive summary of the results. Findings will be incorporated into the University’s strategic planning process, data will be available to researchers and grant-writers, and the results will be shared with the campus community. The ultimate goal: To develop an action plan for improving the overall campus climate. “This shouldn’t sit on a shelf,” Rankin said. “Once you receive the report, I’m going to ask you to identify two or three actions that you can accomplish within a year.” Information about the Cal U Campus Climate Survey is available at www.calu.edu.

here’s more work to do, but Cal U’s finances are moving in the right direction, Acting President Geraldine M. Jones told the Cal U Council of Trustees at its quarterly meeting on Dec. 5. Across-the-board cuts have reduced the projected deficit for the current fiscal year from nearly $12 million to $2.9 million. “We have not given up,” President Jones said. “We will continue to cut costs as we can, without sacrificing our core mission, which is the education of our students.” The President emphasized that Cal U will center its efforts on academics. “In fact, I’ve taken steps to address some of the budget cuts the academic side of the house has experienced over the past few years. I reinstated budgets and approved expenses that will improve our services to students — even at a time when we are chipping away at our deficit,” she said. “I will not mince my words here: The largest share of our budget … must be directed to the actual education of our students.” The Trustees also heard the annual audit report from ParenteBeard, which reviews the University’s finances. The figures reflected changes in the University’s financial picture because of construction on campus, the loss of state and federal funding, and a steep increase in the cost of pension and health benefits. The auditors’ report for the fiscal year ending June 30 showed Cal U with an increase in end-of-year assets to nearly $2.5 million, compared to $1.8 million in 2011. Robert Thorn, vice president for Administration and Finance, reported

that Cal U will begin a $30 million project to renovate and expand the Natali Student Center after spring 2013 Commencement ceremonies. The project, funded through student fees, will add 31,215 square feet of space to the existing 97,000-square-foot building. Students laid out a “wish list” through a series of stakeholder surveys, and then passed a referendum on the proposed renovations in February 2011. The project will expand dining areas, add space for informal student gatherings and improve traffic flow through the building, which was constructed in 1968. Dining services moved from Gallagher Hall to the Natali Student Center in 1999. “This project is student-centered,” emphasized Thorn, who explained that $2 million has been pared from the project. “This will enable the University to provide the students with better service and give them more open space, which is what they wanted.” The project will be accomplished in phases, and much of the building will remain open during the renovations. It is slated for completion in July 2015. In other business: • Dr. Bruce Barnhart, acting provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, reported that student applications for the spring semester are up 4.9 percent compared to this time last year. “As an early lead indicator, this is a good sign for spring,” he said. • Dr. Nancy Pinardi, vice president for Student Affairs, reported on student involvement in clubs, organizations and activities. Through these activities, students are forming lifelong bonds with Cal U and collectively donating thousands of hours to community service.
“We are committed to creating a positive, energetic and inclusive campus community for our students, with a focus on student retention,” she said. • Craig Butzine, vice president for Marketing and University Relations, described results of focus groups conducted with freshmen. Key factors influencing their college choice included strong academic programming and a “personal connection” with a faculty member or fellow student. “We have a very serious freshman class, and our students are our best salespeople,” he said. • Sharon Navoney, interim vice president for Development and Cal U for Life, reported that the capital campaign has obtained $32.2 million, or 92 percent of the $35 million goal. In particular, two individuals made planned gifts of $100,000 each. One was the largest gift annuity ever made to the University, and the other was a $100,000 estate commitment from a Foundation board member to a scholarship fund. Navoney’s report also spotlighted the 16th annual Scholarship Recognition Dinner, which was attended by nearly 300 scholarship recipients and their benefactors. • Dr. Charles Mance, vice president for University Technology Services, reported that there is streamlining access to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act form through the Vulcan Information Portal. The new process eliminates cumbersome printed forms and will centralize access to students’ academic and financial data. With the new system, students 18 and older can more easily give permission for parents or family members to view their bills, financial aid information or grades.
