Message from the president Glen R. Kerkian

These are tr uly invig orating times to be at the state’s flagship, land-grant university. Despite the cur rent economic uncertainties, we continue to be a ver y diverse and comprehensive institution and remain a college of choice for both faculty and students looking for an enriching and academically challenging environment in which to teach and prosper. Look around the Kingston, Providence and Bay campuses, and you will quickly see the ways URI has evolved and expanded into new, often technologically distinctive realms, while at the same time, holding on to our traditions, our deep sense of heritage and our small school intimacy. There is a momentum here that has been harnessed and has facilitated URI’s progression to a campus with a conscience; our readers should take appropriate pride in the role their charitable gifts have played in enhancing URI’s prominence. Others have taken notice, like SmartMoney magazine, which recently ranked URI higher than its Ivy league counterparts when comparing tuition costs against the future earning potential of our alumni. Though the URI of today may appear vastly different from the URI of decades past, it continues to count, among its best attributes, the unwavering pride and support of its alumni numbering over 90,000 strong. The threats to the core mission of higher education in these times are for midable. We remain focused, however, on our momentum and our ability to move forward. With your continued support, which is more vital than ever in ter ms of bolstering the programs, students and faculty that define this University, we will endure and remain a symbol of big ideas to all. This annual report – our first since assuming the administration of all charitable giving activities on behalf of the University – showcases a number of people and prog ram areas that illustrate the tr ue measure of our momentum. From profiles on donors who have directly contributed to our ability to affect change, to highlighting programs and initiatives that have implications globally, this report provides just a glimpse of the positive energ y that is continually emanating from URI. By coupling the University’s annual comprehensive donor listing together with both our annual financial report and our full endowment listing, we hope to have increased the convenience to you, while taking a more “green” approach and realizing the resulting publishing and postage efficiencies. On behalf of the entire University community, thank you for offering your time, talent and treasure, which has ser ved as a critical margin of excellence and which will be the catalyst to propel our fine University to even greater heights.

With a Love of URI Instilled at an Early Age... Judith Fillmore Honors Her Parents by supporting students

Judith Fillmore draws a deep breath of briny air and smiles as she takes in Narragansett Bay from the University of Rhode Island’s Bay Campus. Square in view is the URI vessel The Endeavor and, across the Bay in Jamestown, her family home. Fillmore has bequeathed her estate to the University which will be added to an endowment she previously established, creating additional scholarship opportunities for ocean sciences students in need. “My home is in Virginia, but my heart is in Rhody,” she says. “Salt water is in my veins, I guess.” Also in Fillmore’s heart is a love for the University. Though not a graduate herself, Fillmore is the child of two URI alums: Robert (Bob) H. Fillmore and Marjorie P. Fillmore. In their honor, Fillmore created the Robert H. and Marjorie P. Fillmore Memorial Endowment Fund.



Her dad’s area of study at URI was chicken and poultry, Fillmore says and smiles. Her mom was the first woman to graduate with an engineering degree. After graduating in the 1930’s, Robert Fillmore, a United States Army officer, married Marjorie and took the family to Germany, where he was stationed. “We traveled all over the place,” Fillmore recalls. “Yet everywhere we went we would find an alumni association. There was always someone from Rhode Island where we were stationed.” When the family was in the United States the connection to the University amplified. “I got involved while still a child through the Washington, D.C. Alumni Chapter of URI,” Fillmore recalls. “Every May there was a clambake.” Fillmore said she gladly participated in the clambake

“You can start small and become mighty.” preparations, assisting her parents in making chowder at the bake sites. Fillmore’s father would have the cooks at the officers club chop the potatoes. The quahogs were shelled by hand. They served Rhode Island (clear) and New England (cream) clam chowder, Fillmore recalls. “Woe be the person who asked for red,” she says. “We educated friends on the differences between clams, littlenecks, and quahogs.” It is memories such as these and love for her parents that prompted Fillmore to create an endowment for the University. “I wanted to do something for my parents,” Fillmore says. “My father passed away and then my mom died of cancer. That’s when I got interested in doing something. The endowment will live on in my mom and dad’s memory. I did it for them, not for me. I told them, don’t name anything after me.” Fillmore makes a trip to Rhode Island every year to meet the recipient of the scholarship funded by her endowment. “Education leads to knowledge and knowledge leads to discoveries. These kids are going to be the ones who are going to be doing the research,” she says. A former high school teacher and Geico insurance systems analyst, Fillmore says that others interested in creating an endowment should look at it as insurance that pays big dividends. “You know that your money is being used forever and ever to educate the people who are going to make the world better,” Fillmore says. “That’s the greatest gift. I know that after I’m gone that the endowment will support the endeavors of a person or people who will create a better world.” The amount pledged to create an endowment need not be large, Fillmore says. With time there will be growth. An endowment shows a dedication to the future, she adds. “You can start small and become mighty.”

College of engineering G ra d u a t e Fellow ships

Attracting the best & the brightest students

Engineering Gifts Support Initiative to Create Graduate Fellowships

The URI College of Engineering (COE) provides an exceptional education in a number of engineering disciplines. Though the College has a strong undergraduate scholarship program, it has limited resources for graduate fellowships and research assistantships. This has placed the College at a relative disadvantage to other educational institutions of its caliber. “This has been a handicap in our recruitment efforts, and we have lost many of the top candidates for graduate degrees because of our inability to offer them financial aid,” said Dean Raymond Wright. In an effort to attract and retain talented students and faculty, and to expand research and grant funding opportunities, the College of Engineering has made Graduate Fellowships its top priority. The dean, department chairs and faculty, and the COE Advisory Council unanimously approved a $1.1 million fundraising goal for a Graduate



Fellowship Initiative. This will enhance The COE’s ability to attract outstanding faculty, enroll quality undergraduate and graduate students, and maintain teaching and research excellence for which the College of Engineering is known. The Advisory Council assists and advises the dean in determining and pursuing the teaching and research mission of the College. “The Council also facilitates connections with industry, and provides insights for the development and implementation of its strategic plan,” said Nina Saberi, Advisory Council chair. She graduated with a B.S. in electrical engineering in 1982, and recently became one of the initial donors to the Graduate Fellowship Initiative with her gift of $25,000. Gary Bowen, a 1968 electrical engineering alumnus who chairs the Development Committee of the Advisory Council, also saw the need for graduate

ANNUAL REPORT 2008 fellowship support and made a $25,000 contribution. “I hope that our support enables the COE to attract the best and brightest candidates,” said Saberi. “I count on my fellow Advisory Board members and COE alumni to support this Initiative.” “Nina Saberi and Gary Bowen have demonstrated exemplary leadership by contributing to the fund, but additional support is needed to expand research capabilities, and establish additional graduate fellowships to conduct such research,” said Robert Clough, Assistant Dean for COE Development. Attracting highly qualified graduate students will have an impact on the entire engineering program. “With additional graduate student support, faculty members will have the resources to expand their research efforts and seek additional grant funding,” said Dean Wright. “Faculty are competing nationally for grants, and more and more universities are providing either a complete waiver of tuition or allowing a reduced tuition to in-state levels. We do not have that ability at URI. The funds generated by the URI COE Graduate Fellowship Endowment Initiative will provide a student match and allow our

proposals to compete nationally both now and in the future.” “To date, the College has generated over $900,000 in gifts and pledges for graduate student support, and research professors are already benefiting from the program,” said Clough. Dr. Ying Sun and Dr. Qing Yang recently were awarded competitive grant funding for their respective research in biomedical and computer engineering. In addition, Dean Wright was able to introduce the first two Graduate Fellows at the October meeting of the Advisory Council. The fellowship recipients were Michael Opusewnski in biomedical engineering and Weijun Xiao in computer engineering. “The College of Engineering will continue to aggressively pursue its efforts to award additional graduate fellowships and to advance the URI College of Engineering as a global leader in engineering education and research. We anticipate the full support and participation of the COE Advisory Council, and hope that COE alumni everywhere will understand the need and contribute to the Graduate Fellowship Initiative,” said Dean Wright.

Supporting URI by Investing in Students The Al & Gerrie Verrecchia Challenge Grant For most people, other people’s problems stay other people’s problems. Not so for Al and Gerrie Verrecchia. They believe what affects one affects all. The rising cost of a college education, for instance, prompted the couple to pledge $250,000 to the University of Rhode Island to fund the Verrecchia Challenge Grant. The Verrecchias will match donations of $12,500 from individuals who wish to establish an endowed scholarship for the University’s College of Business Administration. Al Verrecchia, recently retired CEO and chairman of Hasbro, received his bachelor’s degree from URI in 1967 and an MBA in 1972. He was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws in 2004. Scholarships created as a result of the Verrecchia Challenge Grant will bear either the name of the donor or the name of the donor’s choosing. Gifts of $12,500 made be made in increments over five years and may be eligible for employer matches. “To me, education is what it’s all about,” Al Verrecchia said. “You try to give your children the best possible education you can. It’s a gift. What they do with it is their business, but it’s a gift. page


“Having the match encourages other people to give and make more scholarship money available,” he continued. “We’re investing in our kids by giving them an education. The things that Gerrie and I do are more investments in people than in charitable giving. And we’re going to get a much greater return on that investment than one-time giving would yield. You have to help people help themselves. That’s how you make an investment.”

A giving partnership Al Verrecchia holds the distinction of being the first Hasbro CEO who was not a family member. He began his career at the world-renowned toy company in 1965 while still a URI student, working part time for what was then Hassenfeld Brothers. Verrecchia’s career culminated in a fiveyear stint as head of the global company. “When I started, GI Joe had just been introduced,” Verrecchia said. “He’s had a career just a few months longer than mine.” The Snoopy Snowcone Machine, doctor and nurse medical kits, and Lite-Brite were just a few of the hundreds of Hasbro hits to be developed during Verrecchia’s career.


“To see people doing better and to know you contributed to that...that’s what success is all about.” take advantage of this opportunity and double their gifts through the Verrecchia challenge.”

Al credits his wife of 44 years with his career and life successes. The pair raised four children together. Theirs has been a partnership, he said. “I would not have been able to commit the time, effort, and energy to (the career) if it were not for Gerrie. She maintained the family. In a career like mine, you have to make enormous sacrifices. The whole family becomes part of it. It takes a lot.”

Advice for the next generation To those students who will benefit from the Verrecchia Challenge Grant, Al offers some advice. “You need to work until it hurts,” he said. “You won’t realize how important that is until later on in life. And don’t worry about what you want to be. Students don’t know the number of things they can do to make their way in life.”

That the Verrecchias should spend their free time in service to children seems natural. “I love children,” Al said. “And when I find myself in a position to give back, I want to do something.

And, Al said, do the thing that scares you a bit. “Coming out of school you don’t have any real commitments,” he said. “You don’t have a lot to lose, and you have everything to gain. Take a risk. If I didn’t take risks I wouldn’t have been CEO of Hasbro. Don’t be afraid to try things. Don’t wait to be asked. If you wait to be asked, you’re not going to get that seat at the table,” he said. “Be reasonably assertive. Speak up.”

“We realize how really fortunate we have been and when you have been as blessed as we have, you have to give back,” Gerrie added. “We choose to do it for children.” The Verrecchias’ altruism makes for busy lives. They serve causes that are important to them in a variety of ways, like fundraising for Women and Infants Hospital, volunteering for Adoption Rhode Island, and chairing a recent March of Dimes Walk-a-thon. For Christmas, the Verrechias ask the same of their children: Make a donation to Hasbro Children’s Hospital or Women and Infants, they say.

And to those thinking of making a matching gift? GI Joe

Al and Gerrie Verrechia have a long history of patronage to the University. Over the years, they have donated nearly $300,000 in addition to this most recent gift to URI in support of various projects and initiatives. They have contributed to the Annual Fund, the College of Business Administration Dean’s Fund, and the URI Citizens Scholar Fund. The Verrecchias have lent their financial support to the renovation of Ballantine Hall and established the Verrecchia-Hasbro Leadership Chair, to which Hasbro donated $1 million in 1997. Al has served on several URI boards, including URI’s Campaign Leadership Committee, the President’s Council Committee, and the URI Business Advisory Council, among others.

“You want to do the right thing for your university. We’re limiting the (challenge grant) to $12,500 so that way we encourage more people to participate. It’s much more within the reach of people.” The reward, the Verrecchias say, is great. “To see people doing better and to know you contributed to that,” Al said, “that’s what success is all about.”

URI President Robert L. Carothers praised Al Verrecchia’s service to the University. “Al Verrecchia is part of the very fabric of Rhode Island,” Carothers said. “From his undergraduate days at URI to his rise to chairman of Hasbro, he has always supported URI and has remained committed to its growth and success. “We are very appreciative of the devotion and the philanthropic spirit both he and Gerrie continue to demonstrate, particularly in the area of endowment creation, one of the priorities of the University’s current Making a Difference capital campaign,” Carothers added. Mark Higgins, dean of the College of Business Administration, echoed Carothers’ comments. “Some of the most distinguished names in business, Al Verrecchia among them, are graduates of URI,” he said. “We are fortunate that so many of them have a strong affinity to their alma mater and continue to demonstrate their financial support. The significant gift from Al and Gerrie is most generous and we encourage other graduates and friends to page

The Center for Biotechnology & Life Sciences

Setting the Mark in Sustainability

Winter brings darkness, cold temperatures, and bare landscapes, but in the winter of 2009 something very “green” will blossom at URI when the Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences opens its doors to students, researchers, and the burgeoning field of biotechnology in Rhode Island. The Center, the largest building project in URI history, was made possible by Rhode Island voters who approved the funding in 2004. Now, after two years of construction, the Center is almost ready to come online. While students and researchers will be thrilled to use all the new labs, state of the art equipment and classrooms in the $58 million building, there are many others at URI who will be pleased to know that the Center will set the mark in efficiency, sustainability, and environmental responsibility. The Center is URI’s first building to qualify for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating, a national program that encourages and recognizes building projects that provide elements to save money and reduce impact on the environment during all phases of design, construction, and operation. Not only is the Center LEED certified, but it will achieve a silver level rating. Accomplishing the LEED rating has not been easy — it is particularly difficult in a research facility whose numerous laboratories necessitate systems to exhaust huge amounts of air.

The Center’s sustainable features include: • Building materials purchased from local and regional sources to reduce transportation costs. • The use of sustainable materials such as maple wood throughout the building. • Energy efficient glass windows, fitted with special devices to allow light to infiltrate into corridors, reducing the need for electric lighting during the day. • A “green roof” on the teaching wing that will help insulate the building. • The courtyard rain garden that will utilize stormwater run-off. • The collection, sorting, and recycling of leftover construction materials. • Rest rooms fitted with low-flow fixtures, including some that are “water-less.” • The building’s position, which takes maximum advantage of natural light for heating and cooling purposes. • The use of energy efficient motors and electrical devices in all mechanical systems. • Building materials that do not “off-gas” fumes. • Minimal change orders during construction, illustrating the thought and vision involved in the initial planning of the project. • No additional parking, but a significant number of bicycle racks at the building.

To accomplish all of these efficiencies required everyone — URI administrators, architects, construction overseers, and workers — to do their part to make the Center a sustainable success. The extra thought put into the initial planning of the Center is evident in both the minimal number of change orders that occurred during construction as well as the fact that the building is on budget and on time. As one architect put it: “URI has made a commitment. There has been a big design effort towards sustainability. The cost savings will start on opening day.”



The windows of of the Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences are unique. Besides having special glass, the east and south facing windows have devices that reflect light into the interior of the building (so less energy is needed to light corridors) and others have panes that will help keep the building cooler in the summer.


“In the winter of 2009

something very ‘green’ will blossom at URI when the Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences opens its doors.”

URI’s Making A Difference Campaign

Leading the Way Through His Leadership Gift, Richard Beaupre ‘62 Lead. It’s a small word with many meanings. Theater aficionados think of an actor who assumes a principal role. For financial investors, a lead refers to a potential opportunity. And for many University of Rhode Island students, “lead” is word they associate with Richard Beaupre ’62, Hon. ’03, whose leadership gift has made possible countless educational opportunities they may have been otherwise unable to afford.

a conference in Georgia. I asked why the university was not providing the funds, and she explained there was no money available for student travel. Luckily, we were in a position to assist her, but it breaks my heart to hear the stories of kids who do not have the opportunities,” says Beaupre. “I am told that my gift is one of the most significant because it has meant so much to so many.”

Richard Beaupre, a Cumberland, R.I., resident and URI Foundation Trustee, pledged a leadership gift of $1 million — a pledge that was recently fulfilled — to the College of Arts and Sciences Hope and Heritage Fund, which now bears his name. The fund provides support for Arts and Sciences undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty members to attend conferences, present papers, exhibit work, or perform in concerts.

Indeed, Beaupre’s generosity continues to be far-reaching. Thousands of students majoring in anthropology, art history, communications studies, computer science, and a host of other disciplines have traveled to Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America. Thanks to Beaupre’s gift, the University’s Undergraduate Honors String Quartet was able to travel to France, performing at the Academie de Musique de Chambre rencontres Musicale de Forcalquier.

Beaupre’s generosity stems from his commitment to the University, which he credits for his success. A chemistry graduate who runs ChemArt Co., the world’s leading manufacturer of photo-etched decorative brass collectibles, Beaupre also strengthened his business acumen by taking M.B.A. courses in the early 1970s.

The endowment has also made possible travel throughout the United States. In 2004, 18 journalism students traveled to New Hampshire to cover the presidential primary. Three years later, nine chemistry students attended the American Chemical Society’s annual conference.

“I took four or five courses and received enough knowledge to start my own company and to be successful. And if I were to address potential donors, I’d ask, ‘What did the University do for you? Because of your success, what are you willing to give back to repay the University?’” While Beaupre has been a longtime benefactor of the University, he says he was “looking to do something special” for the campaign. Dean Winnie Brownell of the College of Arts and Sciences gave Beaupre the opportunity to make a special mark on the lives of countless students when she spoke to him about the Hope and Heritage Fund that she established in 1999. Beaupre enthusiastically supported the idea, saying that it reminded him of his stepdaughter’s experience at the University of New Mexico. “She was studying for her Ph.D. and called and asked for money to attend page


These domestic and international educational opportunities perfectly complement the University’s mission. “We are a research university, and faculty and students are engaged in outstanding programs of research across the curriculum. The Beaupre Hope and Heritage Fund supports the dissemination of research and creative work at professional venues. Dick’s leadership and visionary gift helps us sustain excellence in our programs and research,” says Dean Brownell. Given that Beaupre’s donation ensures that nearly $50,000 will be available annually to fund these opportunities in perpetuity, its effect will be felt by generations to come. By enhancing the value of a University of Rhode Island degree, these invaluable experiences undoubtedly will serve as the foundation upon which students can become – as Beaupre did – leaders in industry and philanthropy.


Looking to Honor a Brother & Friend...

by Creating Scholarship Opportunities for the Visually Impaired The Gerald B. Shapiro ’75 Memorial Scholarship Endowment

While the family fully supports this endowment, they are quick to point out that the idea originated with Gerald’s friends and co-workers at the Office of Rehabilitation Services (ORS), where he worked for almost 30 years. “The family is exceedingly touched by the outpouring of warmth and caring and the desire to perpetuate my brother’s memory in this way,” says Robert. “We hope that this endowment gives the ability to assist young people who may have special learning needs.” The endowment will provide scholarship opportunities to students who are visually impaired and demonstrate financial need. The preference for this scholarship stems from Gerald’s own experiences. Gerald was born with retinitis pigmentosa, an eye disease that causes the gradual loss of vision. Though he wore glasses for most of his life, Gerald wasn’t diagnosed with the disease until after he graduated from URI in 1975. “Once diagnosed, his doctor said he would be blind by age 40, and that’s exactly what happened,” says Robert. “He never complained about his infirmity. He adjusted, and his life mission was to help others that were infirmed.” Gerald was extremely capable despite his blindness – he got back and forth to work, shopped in downtown Providence, and maintained a very active relationship with his synagogue, Temple Emanu-El, where he sang in the choir.

When Robert Shapiro remembers the life of his brother Gerald Shapiro, he thinks of a resilient, thoughtful man intent on dedicating his life to helping others. When Gerald’s life was cut short in a tragic house fire in February 2008, his friends and family rallied to preserve his legacy by creating the Gerald B. Shapiro ’75 Memorial Scholarship Endowment.

Gerald Shapiro was an inspirational figure within the community, and through his work with the ORS he touched the lives of hundreds of people. “I think it was his life mission to connect with other people and help them,” says Robert. “Over time, this fund is going to help individuals who find college difficult because of their illness. I hope the recipients learn about Jerry, and find his life inspirational.”

Honoring a Life...

by Supporting Nursing Students

Mary O’Sullivan McGovern dedicated her life to the care and nurturing of others. With hopes of building a better life, she immigrated to America at age fifteen to finish her education. Though she did attend URI in the fifties and came within two classes of earning a degree, Mary was always a caretaker. As the oldest daughter of eight children, she consistently delayed her own college education — and her dreams of becoming a nurse — to help several of her brothers and sisters begin their own lives in America. Now, with that same selfless spirit, her family has created the Mary O’Sullivan McGovern Endowed Scholarship for Nursing. Mary’s family contacted the University of Rhode Island to create this endowed scholarship. Colleen Hurst, Mary’s daughter, notes how impressed she was with the extraordinary care and attention her mother received from a URI faculty member and student nurses while she was a patient at Roger Williams Hospital. “First and foremost was the nursing instructor covering the rotation of students, Kathy Paquette, R.N. She involved her students in my mother’s assessment, diagnosis, and care. When the floor nurses were busy, Ms. Paquette took the time to do the small things for my mother which brought her comfort.” The goal of this scholarship is to help international students. “The preference to assist international students comes from listening to the stories of my mother’s life in America,” says Mrs. Hurst. “Unless one has immigrated to the United States in search of an education one can never understand the difficulties an international student must face – being in a new country, being immersed in a new educational system, encountering a whole new culture. It is our hope that this endowment can help in some way to ease the difficulties of those students.” Dayle Joseph, Dean of Nursing, agrees. “It will provide us with funds to help minority and international students defray some tuition expenses. Such scholarships truly make a difference in the lives of the recipient.”

The Mary O’Sullivan McGovern Endowed Scholarship for Nursing

The Sculco Challenge is matching this endowment, which will effectively double the amount being awarded. Mary. McGovern’s family is grateful for the opportunity to give back to the URI community in their mother’s name. “This endowment is a celebration of my mother’s life and her love of knowledge and education,” says Mrs. Hurst. “It also celebrates the profession of nursing and those who choose to pursue it. Throughout their careers, the URI nursing students will touch thousands of lives; this is one family that was comforted by such care.” page

Boosts URI Providence Biotech Center & Creates Job Opportunities for Graduates


The next big ribbon-cutting event on the Kingston Campus will be the opening of the new Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences this winter, but that doesn’t mean the Providence Biotechnology Center (PBC) doesn’t have plenty to brag about.

over the next three years. Lonza wants URI to provide basic training for their new employees at the Providence Campus under an annual contract worth $350,000. In addition, the company will be donating $100,000 to purchase biotechnology equipment for the dedicated Biotechnology Industry Training Lab at PBC.

PBC has entered into a significant partnership with Lonza Biologics, one of the world’s leading biotherapeutic drug and vaccine manufacturers. Founded in 1897 in Basel, Switzerland, Lonza is rapidly expanding its Hopkinton, Mass., facilities with the intent of hiring 300 new employees

Each training class will run for three weeks. During that time, all aspects of biomanufacturing will be covered, including FDA good manufacturing practices, Upstream Bioprocessing (growing of genetically modified


ANNUAL REPORT 2008 microbes in bioreactors), Downstream Bioprocessing (separation, purification, and concentration of drugs), and molecular biology methods to characterize the quality and potency of drugs. The first class started on Sept. 30, 2008. Dr. Gregory Paquette, director of the Biotechnology and Clinical Laboratory Science program at URI, says the training will be taught by a faculty of five, all industry experts. In addition, the PAC is in the process of acquiring additional space to build out the training lab, not only for the Lonza partnership, but also for other industry training programs. Lonza has and will continue to hire students from the B.S. Biotechnology Manufacturing Program, says Paquette. The first year of training will be in Providence, but subsequent advanced courses will be in the new biotechnology center in Kingston. There will also be research opportunities between the Kingston center’s faculty and Lonza. “This partnership with Lonza will help the URI Providence Biotechnology Center become one of the premier biotechnology training centers in the Northeast,” says Paquette, who further noted that the Center recently received the 2008 Biotechnology Workforce Development Award from the Rhode Island Tech Collective, an industry trade organization representing the Rhode Island biotechnology industry. Jeff Seemann, dean of URI’s College of the Environment and Life Sciences, noted that this corporate partnership and the gift made by Lonza demonstrate how valuable the scientific resources of the University are to the burgeoning biotech industry in Rhode Island. “This collaboration will allow the Center to develop similar training programs for other corporations and will have a definite and positive impact on economic development here in Rhode Island. It is truly a win-win for the University, the state, and our corporate partner.”

Student Callers Playing a Key Role... in Building Support for URI

Before you hang up, the “sales call” you think you just received might actually be a URI student! More than three dozen student callers make up the URI Foundation’s Student Phonathon Program, an important component in helping us secure annual support through the Fund for URI. Currently 3,865 alumni, parents, and friends support the Fund for URI through the phonathons that are held throughout the academic year. Your contribution of any amount — even $25 — goes a long way by supporting both unrestricted and restricted giving to URI and its colleges. Last year, the student calling program raised $203,000 for the Fund for URI, representing a 47 percent increase from the year before. Eighteen percent of all funds raised through the Fund for URI come to us through the Student Phonathon Program. As of this fall, twenty-six undergraduates have completed initial training and are hard at work connecting with alumni, parents, and friends, many of whom are already loyal supporters. According to Assistant Director of the Fund for URI Bernadine Sadwin, student callers look for these jobs as an opportunity to earn money and to connect with fellow students in a fun work environment. In addition, she noted that the students appreciate getting involved with helping advance URI and gaining important employment experience along the way. The student callers are also instrumental in updating alumni information and providing news about current events at the University and the variety of programs supported by the Fund for URI. This year, student callers will also be reaching out to alumni, parents, and friends who are dedicated to supporting URI Athletics. Go Rhody!

A sincere “thank you” to Jeff ’82, M.B.A. ’92 and Karen ’82 M.A. ’92, Davis for serving as co-chairs for the Fund for URI for the 2007-2008 academic year. The Fund for URI annual fund is supported by many generous alumni, parents, and friends committed to making a difference in the education of our future leaders. The Fund for URI provides critical support for students, faculty, and alumni programs. Contributions are vital to the University because they provide flexible funding that can be put to immediate use. This past year, the Fund for URI raised more than $1,125,021 as a result of direct mail, phonathons, personal solicitation, and online giving. And, although unrestricted support decreased somewhat from last year, restricted support increased by nearly that same amount. Recent trends show that more people are choosing to “restrict” their contribution, or, quite simply, are choosing to direct it toward a particular college or program. As a result, in 2008, the College of Arts & Science observed a 307 percent increase in targeted donations from the year before while the College of Environmental & Life Sciences saw an increase of 189 percent. Our special thanks also go out to David and Cynthia Phelan for co-chairing the 2007-2008 Parents Fund for URI. The Parents Fund for URI provides opportunities for students to participate in conferences, research competitions, leadership programs, and other enrichment activities. The University of Rhode Island extends its gratitude to all of the dedicated parents who participated so generously this year. Thanks to URI parents, the Parents Fund for URI raised more than $34,500 and increased the number of donors by 58 percent. As a result, we can continue to offer new programs and initiatives to engage our students. Mark and Ann Higgins, pictured at left with their two sons, have agreed to cochair the 2008-2009 Parents Fund for URI. Parents of a URI sophomore, Mark, who serves as the dean of University’s College of Business Administration, and his wife Ann, are both committed to see that these expectations are achieved throughout the year ahead. Their willingness to become involved and steward this effort will no doubt bear positive results!




URI Foundation Excellence Awards

The Spencer J. Martin Sch o l a rship Endowment

Paying Tribute to an Outstanding Teacher... With Gift Supporting College of Business Administration

For this student and mentor, it’s definitely a case of mutual admiration. In fact, over the years, each has played the role for the other. Now Donald Lan ’74 is showing his appreciation for his URI accounting professor, Spencer J. Martin, by creating a scholarship endowment in his name. “I had an endowed chair in mind,” Lan recalled recently from his law office in Dallas, Texas. “But Spencer said he’d rather it was a scholarship endowment for accounting students. That is exactly like him; there is no ego involved for him.” Martin has taught accounting at URI for nearly 40 years, and Lan was one of his first star students. “He was a very good thinker,” Martin says of Lan. “He was friendly with peers and professors, willing to



put in extra time, always raised good issues, and was willing to help others.” While Martin might have hoped his student would follow in his accounting footsteps, Lan decided before he finished URI that he would pursue law. “I enjoyed accounting class, especially with Spencer, because he made it fun and interesting,” Lan says. “But I had a summer job at an accounting firm between my junior and senior years where I helped audit a public hospital. I decided then that I didn’t want to do that.” After URI, Lan attended Rutgers University Law School in his native New Jersey, and in 1978 took a job at the U.S. Justice Department’s tax division. While there, he recalls, a colleague once needed tax accounting expertise for a case, and Lan recommended Martin. His

ANNUAL REPORT 2008 former professor wound up testifying in federal court in cases involving the Studebaker Corporation, Burlington Northern Railroad, and others. Martin gained a fair amount of consulting work in Washington as a result of that reference.

While Lan has honored Martin with his endowment gift, the student believes he might owe him more yet. “He built confidence in me as an undergraduate when I really didn’t know what I wanted to do,” Lan says. “Because I did so well in his class, I thought I could do well in law school.”

Lan is a partner in the Dallas firm of Kroney, Morse, Lan, Inc., which specializes in tax law, estate planning, and general business and tax planning. His brother, Richard, is a 1976 URI graduate.

“I’ve always been grateful for that,” Martin says. “To this day, I use those cases as examples in my classes, so he did me more than one favor by recommending me.”

Anonymous Donor Supports URI Athletics... With a $1 Million Gift

Largest-ever donation in University athletics history The University of Rhode Island’s baseball facilities have undergone major upgrades in recent months thanks to the first-ever $1 million pledge to the Department of Athletics as part of the $100 million “Making a Difference” capital campaign at the University. The gift, made my an anonymous donor, is the largest private charitable gift ever made to support URI athletics. The impact of the gift, made during the last fiscal year, is evident, as the playing surfaces at the Bill Beck Field have been upgraded to a synthetic material, sod and a sprinkler system have been installed on the field, and a new indoor batting facility, for use by both our baseball and softball student-athletes, has been constructed. A portion of the gift will also go toward the construction of the planned Student Athlete Development Center, which will provide naming rights for the future baseball offices to be housed within the new facility.

“A gift of this size shows the tremendous passion our alumni and friends have for URI athletics,” said URI Athletic Director Thorr Bjorn. “We are excited about being able to provide a quality venue to our baseball team, and look forward to enhancing their success in the season ahead.” Construction began September 30, 2008 and was completed December 15, 2008. The baseball season at URI is scheduled to begin with practices starting in January, 2009 and the regular season game schedule beginning in late February, 2009.

In addition, George previously served as chairman of the Children’s Crusade for Higher Education and is the outgoing chairman of the Rhode Island Foundation’s board of directors – a post he held for the past two years. He served on the Foundation’s board for a decade. As CEO of Citizens Bank for many years before his

“retirement,” George spearheaded the establishment of the Citizens Financial Group and its subsequent acquisition by the Royal Bank of Scotland, and built a reputation as a leading member of the state’s business community. “We are extremely fortunate to have someone of George’s caliber leading our board in these times. The complexities of operating in a faltering national economy and with increasingly dwindling Rhode Island tax resources requires the kind of seasoned business acumen George brings to the table. The entire board looks forward to opening a new chapter in our history under his able leadership,” said Glen Kerkian, president of the URI Foundation. URI President Robert Carothers added, “There is no one I know in Rhode Island with a greater sense of personal integrity than George. He has shown vision in every role he has played in our state, along with a strong commitment to sound management. George has always been the champion of those who need our help the most, and he believes deeply in the mission of URI.” George is an alumnus of Dartmouth College and the University of Pennsylvania Law School and received an Honorary Doctor of Laws from URI in 1999. He has been awarded four additional honorary doctorates, including one from Rhode Island College in 2007.

Struck ’74 Managing Director of Wand Partners Inc., a New York City based private equity investment firm, John held various financial, management, and investment related executive positions before joining Wand in 1994, including those at Heller Financial, Prudential Bache Securities, Friday Holdings, and General Electric. John has served on the URI Foundation Executive Board since 2007 and served as a trustee prior to that. He is also a member of the College of Arts and Sciences Advisory Council and received his undergraduate degree in economics from the College of Arts and Sciences at URI in 1974.

Vice Chairman Thomas J. Silvia ’83 After graduating from URI and receiving an MBA from Columbia University, Tom joined the Wall Street firm of Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette, first trading mortgage-backed securities, and then serving as a quantitative analyst for the company. In 1993, he moved to Fidelity Investments in Boston and, until recently, served as a vice president and portfolio manager of several fixed-income funds and led Fidelity’s bond group. Tom is a member of the University’s Making A Difference Campaign Leadership Committee and the URI Foundation’s Investment Committee. He has been a member of the URI Foundation Executive Board since 2007 and also serves as a member of the College of Business Ram Fund Advisory Committee. Tom received his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from URI in 1983.

The URI Foundation Honors...

Mary “Murph” Carmody ‘82, past chair of the URI Foundation Mary “Murph” Carmody ‘82 served as chair of the URIF Executive Board for three years, her tenure coming to a close at the Board’s June 2008 Annual Meeting. Called “one of URI’s biggest and most ardent supporters,” by Foundation President Glen Kerkian, Murph is widely known for her leadership, commitment, and her ability to work successfully with University administration, staff, alumni, board members and trustees. Her leadership was instrumental during the very important transition period in late 2007 and early 2008 when fundraising and development were moved from the University proper to the Foundation. The move, which provided greater flexibility to the University’s fundraising efforts, was made possible thanks to the dedication and involvement of a number of University and Foundation officials, including Murph Carmody. University President Robert L. Carothers noted her long tradition of volunteerism and involvement in advancing the University. “We are fortunate that Murph will remain on the board and will continue to be one of our biggest champions. Her service as chair of the Foundation was exceptional and we are grateful to her for her dedication,” President Carothers said. “Murph is an amazing person who is deeply committed to this University on so many levels,” URI Foundation President Glen R. Kerkian added. “Her devotion to this institution is nothing short of amazing and her leadership was truly outstanding.”

The University of Rhode Island

campaign URI’s capital campaign, which was publicly announced in October of 2007, and is scheduled to continue through to the end of December, 2010, has raised nearly $84 million in cash and pledges toward its $100 million goal. At 70 percent through the campaign duration, which began on July 1, 2004 when the “quiet” phase of securing leadership gifts began, over 83 percent of our target goal has been raised. The “Making a Difference” campaign seeks to raise $100 million to increase URI’s competitiveness and help maintain its prominence by supporting faculty and scholarship opportunities as well as athletics, the annual fund, cutting-edge research initiatives and several new capital building projects on its campuses. Significant progress has been made in all areas of the campaign including one of its highest priorities, increased endowment funding, as well as capital building projects. The endowment fund, which is reported on in greater detail later in the report, grew by over 24 percent by the end of fiscal year 2008 compared to its value at the start of the campaign. The new Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences building, 140,000 square-foot, state-ofthe-art, “green” construction project, is the first in a series of building projects to approach completion, with a ribbon-cutting expected to occur early in 2009.

The University of Rhode Island’s

Endowment management To achieve its investment objectives, the URI Foundation retains an independent investment consultant to provide ongoing evaluation of economic conditions, review manager performance and provide advice on asset allocation and investment manager selection. The Foundation’s Investment Committee and its Board of Trustees has adopted the strategy of investing endowment assets to preserve the long-range purchasing power of the endowments in order to provide intergenerational financial support for the programs the endowments were created to benefit.

General Endowment Overview & Value As of March 31, 2008, the Foundation had 930 separate endowment funds with a market vale of $83.1 million. During the last fiscal year, 48 new endowments were created, with a value of $4,470,875. The market value for the General Endowment Fund (GEF) for the past nine years is represented on the following chart:

The endowment funds held by the Foundation provide a consistent level of support for current and future needs of the University of Rhode Island. The primary objective of the GEF is to maintain the purchasing power of its individual endowments over time by reinvesting part of the endowment’s earnings and appreciation each year. If the principal value of the GEF grows at or above the rate of inflation, an increasing stream of income will be generated to meet the rising costs of education, research and campus life, which supplements non-endowment cash gifts benefitting the university annually.

Endowment Support to the University The following graph represents the total amount of funds distributed to the University annually, based on the GEF’s spending distribution policy, for the nine-year period FY00-FY08:

A Valued Partnership Endowments provide a permanent partnership between the University and its benefactors. The legacy of thoughtful donors plays a role in the life of the University in perpetuity, and becomes the “foundation” upon which URI can build its achievements. The generosity of the University of Rhode Island’s many endowment donors is appreciated by generations of students and faculty, past and present, and will certainly continue to be highly valued for many decades and beyond.
