Special Section: Donor Report 2010




Dr. Biff Green

As Binnie and I begin the final year of our leadership role at Friends University, we have been blessed to receive many wishes for a great retirement from people we have met throughout the years. One particularly poignant event for us occurred the Friday before Homecoming when a large group of students, faculty, staff, Board of Trustee members, alumni and other friends gathered for a group photo on the front steps of the Davis Administration Building and ice cream social along Centennial Lane to celebrate the past 20 years.

Binnie and I were deeply moved by this surprise event. The celebratory mood continued the next day with a record attendance of more than 1,400 people at our Homecoming block party and the Falcon’s defeat of Bethel College 43-12. Another celebration this fall was the recognition of the Chester and Vera Pitts family as our Friends University Family of the Year. This new award was created to recognize a special family for their dedication, commitment and years of service to the University. Four generations of the Pitts family have been involved with Friends University for eight decades, and more than 20 family members have attended the University since 1949. Four family members have also served on the Board of Trustees or as employees at Friends University. Congratulations and thank you to the Pitts family for their ongoing involvement and

support of Friends University. Also a special thank you to Rod Pitts, chairman of the Friends University Board of Trustees, for agreeing to oversee the search for the next president of Friends University. Work continued on the Davis Administration Building’s roof replacement this fall, and we narrowly escaped another major hailstorm that hit Wichita in September. As this issue of Focus goes to print, we are still hopeful the tower portion of the project will be done in time to light the tower for the holidays. Thank you to all of our donors who supported Friends University last year. We have included our 2009-10 annual donor report in this issue of Focus. Your support makes a tremendous difference in our ability to provide an independent, Christian education for our students.

The Center for Online Learning and Academic Technology supplies faculty and staff with interactive technologies such as Clickers and SMART Boards. Clickers allow multiple participants to input responses to test or survey questions simultaneously. Results are then displayed instantly on the projector screen for immediate feedback. SMART Boards are interactive, touch-sensitive white boards allowing collaboration on a large screen when used with a projector. EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM The University is in the process of upgrading its emergency notification processes in order to be in compliance with federally mandated changes spurred by the 2007 shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech. By January, a new text messaging system will be implemented, allowing the University to inform students and employees of weather closings and campus emergencies.

Zachary Baldridge, Jennifer Cooks, Michael Evenson, Jennifer Fiegel, Daniel Flynt, Aaron Gurley, Cole Hancock, Kathryn McWilliams, Whitney Mills, Douglas Murdoch, Alex Rodriguez and Brittney Roembach acted as delegates of Spain and Mali and debated resolutions within committees to advance their country’s best interests. In February 2011, Friends University’s delegation will be representing South Korea. Senior Michael Clifford, Zoo Science major, spent three months in South Africa during the summer working with wildlife reserves and zoos. He said his favorite experience was working with a game-capture company that traps either individual animals or large groups for genetic reasons. He also spent time at the Pretoria National Zoo, Cheetah Outreach and several other organizations,

where he learned how South African zoos are managed and shared his knowledge about animal enrichment and training. Friends University Campus Ministries took 34 students on a mission trip in August 2010 to inner-city Houston. This trip was previously during spring break, and the change allowed seven incoming freshman and transfer students to go. The group worked in areas including homeless shelters, tutoring services and other locations.

Senior Michael Clifford assisted with placing a radio-tracking collar on this sedated cheetah near Upington, South Africa. Collars allow reserve management to track cheetahs as they cross the reserve in search of food or mates.

Dr. Shepard is working with Dr. Lisa Reilly, professor at the University of Virginia School of Architecture, to complete a book about the stained glass in the church. Friends University student Kevin Cockrell is helping Dr. Shepard produce conservation diagrams of each stained-glass window. “Just looking at it, you can tell what glass is original and what [was added] later,” Dr. Shepard said. The book will be produced by Corpus Vitrearum, a group of international scholars devoted to the study of stained glass. Dr. Shepard and Dr. Reilly will be the first Americans to work on a book for the British committee of Corpus Vitrearum. Dr. Shepard and Dr. Reilly studied the glass at St. Michaelle-Belfrey for the month of July 2010 and plan to go back next summer to work on the Great East Window above the altar. During their study, Dr. Shepard and Dr. Reilly spent many hours in local libraries, looking for accounts of how the stainedglass panels looked through the years. There are currently no records that pinpoint the initial installation of the glass, but through the study of watercolors and old photographs, Dr. Shepard thinks that none of the stained-glass panels are in their PHOTO BY GORDON PLUMB

Friends University Phonathon Continues to Grow! For the third year in a row, our very own students will be doing all of the calling during the Phonathon, with a goal of raising as much money as they can for the Friends Annual Fund. One major change this year is that calling will take place at two different times, once in the fall and again shortly after the first of the year. The reason for calling during both first and second semester is to give us more opportunities to reach as many of you as possible. During the first two years of our oncampus Phonathon, we have called for eight weeks in the winter and spring. Now we will be calling for six weeks in the fall and an additional six weeks beginning at the end of January, for a total of 12 weeks. This significantly increases our call time and will allow us to make thousands more calls than we have ever made before. Plus, by calling at two different times of year, we hope to give our callers a better opportunity of reaching people the second time around

that they were unable to reach during the first Phonathon. While we realize a fundraising phone call might not always be everyone’s favorite call to receive, we hope you understand that it is a necessary part of our annual-giving program. By bringing the Phonathon back to campus, we have guaranteed that the call you receive will be from a Friends University student. Just a few years ago, we would not have been able to say that. Having our students call is so much better than outsourcing our calls because it gives most of you something in common with the caller, and that is your association with the University. We encourage you to engage in a conversation if you speak with a student caller. Ask them questions about what is happening around campus. We give our students the flexibility to have a conversation with you, rather than instructing them to make as many calls as possible. Of course we hope you will make a pledge, but it is more important

to us that you feel good about the call, whether you make a pledge or not. Thank you to everyone that has already given a gift this year and to those of you that made pledges during the fall Phonathon. We also thank all of you that received a phone call and politely declined to make a pledge. Our callers routinely tell us that some of their best calls may not even result in a pledge; they just really enjoyed visiting with the person. For those of you that have not yet received a call, we hope you enjoy speaking with the students and we thank you for your consideration!

Financial Aid Department Awards $6.7 Million in Scholarships BY TATSUYA HIDANO, SENIOR The cost of college has long caused headaches for students and their parents. With the recession leaving a deep scar in the economy, tuition and fees can be even more painful. But the Friends University Financial Aid Department wants to help students find scholarships, grants and loans to help cover costs. “Students need to come and see us, and tell us what assistance they need,” said Brandon Pierce, director of Financial Aid. “And we will see where we can go from there.” Many financial support opportunities arise during each school year. Then the Financial Aid staff will send the information out to students via e-mail or by mail. As a result, 99.5 percent of eligible traditional undergraduate students in the College of Business, Arts, Sciences and Education (CBASE) receive some form of financial aid, and 92 percent receive institutional scholarships and/or grants, which average approximately $8,500 per student per year.

The Financial Aid staff: (front row) Brandon Pierce, Lynn Matsler, Craig Dassow, Arlene Thomsen and Tony Lubbers; (back row) Denise Lacy, Janice Spencer, Sue Kessler and Mary Gragg.

New Learning Formats Reach Beyond Campus BY SARA ORNELAS

18 F riends U niversity


Friends University offers bachelor degree completion and graduate degree programs across the state of Kansas. Find out which programs are available in your area: 316-295-5300 or 1-800-794-6945, ext. 5300;; or

But the Falcon experience will not be contained to a building, a campus, the state of Kansas or even the United States. With new learning formats, outreach programs and specialty educational opportunities, Friends University has proved that its spirit knows no bounds. EDUCATION CENTERS AND OUTREACH PROGRAMS

For more than 112 years, students have found an academic home inside the welcoming halls of Friends University’s Davis Administration Building. As well, they’ve stepped outside the historic building’s doors and ventured to the lushly landscaped campus and into the University’s dozens of other structures to learn and grow.

In 1989, Friends University extended its breadth across the state of Kansas to education centers in the Kansas City and Topeka areas. Additionally, partnerships with colleges in outlying communities – including Garden City, Coffeyville, Dodge City and Liberal, to name a few – allow students to embrace the Friends University experience throughout Kansas. “We have been serving students in the Kansas City metropolitan area since 1989,” said Lisa Swaney, director of the Lenexa Education Center. “Currently, we have a wide variety of undergraduate programs to help working adults succeed in the fields of organizational leadership, business management, accounting and computer information systems. In addition, we have specialized graduate programs in business administration, healthcare leadership, business law, and marriage and family therapy. “The Lenexa Education Center is unique in the Northeast region of the state because of our distinguished marriage and family therapy faculty who have been recognized by state professional associations for their dedication to the field. Moreover, the Friends University center in Lenexa is home to a Center on Family Living which offers affordable therapeutic services to individuals, couples and families in the Kansas City area.” Students in Topeka have had similar experiences. “Friends University has been offering students in Topeka the opportunity to further their education in a broad range of fields since 1993,” said Hilary Peguero, director of the Topeka Education Center. “Topeka-area residents can enroll as a freshman in the Program for Adult College Education (PACE), choose from several different bachelor programs and complete a master’s degree – all at the Topeka Education Center.” Friends University also offers additional opportunities for students planning to transfer from all Kansas community colleges, including credit transfer agreements, financial aid and scholarships.

Alumni Key: G’__ = Associate or Bachelor’s Degree Graduation Year; M’__ = Master’s Degree Graduation Year; FS’__ = Former Student, Last Year Attended




“Administration is currently working with Hesston College to create a transfer scholarship,” said Erin Haneberg, executive director of undergraduate admissions. “This scholarship will benefit Hesston College graduates seeking to complete a bachelor’s degree at Friends University.” This partnership will allow Hesston College students a smooth transition from their associate degree program directly into their major course of study at Friends University because they will receive advising from both institutions. In addition, Hesston College and Friends University share many values, and both have a strong academic reputation. ONLINE LEARNING

In addition to brick-and-mortar classroom settings, Friends University offers educational opportunities to global learners with fully online degree programs. The University began offering online programs last spring. The Master of Business Administration, Master of Management Information Systems, Master of Arts in Teaching, and Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management and Leadership have been successful. New programs scheduled for this spring include the Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Management, Master of Health Care Leadership, and PACE Associate of General Business and Associate of General Studies degrees. Online programs offer the same high standards as the University’s classroom settings, but busy adult students work on lessons from the comfort of their home computers. Programs are available “anywhere, anytime,” said Dr. Jay Johnson, MBA program director. “The time is right for Friends University to offer online education to its diverse population of students,” said Dr. Mark Sanborn, director of the Center for Online Learning and Academic Technology. “We now have the ability to reach out to students and create active learning communities irrespective of place and time.” Dr. Johnson said the online opportunities let students participate in course activities within the cohort at their own pace, but this format for learning might not be for everyone. “While it’s hard to replace that classroom interaction, the majority of meaningful learning comes from what students do for themselves,” Dr. Johnson said. “Good online programs have served many students well.” PRAIRIE BAND POTAWATOMI NATION

Friends University has entered an unprecedented partnership with the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation (PBPN), expanding the University’s scope and offering reservation-based tribal 20 F riends U niversity


citizens the opportunity to earn a degree in their community. Beginning in spring 2011, Friends University will hold classes at the PBPN’s Government Center on the reservation in Mayetta, Kan. – 30 miles from Topeka. Students will be able to choose from 13- to 24-month degree-completion and graduate programs, including the Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Management, Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management and Leadership, and Master of Business Administration. “This educational partnership is a natural extension of the University’s outreach development,” said Dorothy Karnowski, program representative. Students will be able to attend classes at the tribal government center in the same format as every other Friends University student. PBNP students will benefit from the exact curriculum content, schedule and format that Friends University students across the state receive, including an online writing center, academic advising and tutoring. Beyond the programs offered on the reservation, students can take advantage of online degree programs, as well as other courses offered at the Friends University Topeka Education Center. The online degree programs present a wonderful opportunity for other tribal nations to create their own virtual classrooms to benefit their tribal members as well. Whether they have the facilities for classrooms or not, tribes across the country can bring their tribal members together in an online cohort, or group, and work together as if in a traditional classroom setting. Friends University will work with interested tribes to build their virtual program to best benefit their needs. According to the agreement between the PBNB and Friends University, the University will provide a traditional education program package on-site, which includes student recruitment, financial aid assistance, course instructors and curriculum, book delivery, and other items needed to complete the courses. The PBPN will in turn provide classroom space in the government center with updated audio/visual equipment and other resources to support the endeavor. Class sizes are small to allow for quality interaction among instructors, students and their peers. “The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation is investing in its tribal members to become informed, educated leaders of the future and Friends University is proud to have been chosen to be a part of this opportunity,” said Jeanette Hanson, executive director of adult recruitment. “The Friends University mission is to provide academic excellence to a diverse community of lifelong learners, and to be able to develop this partnership to support Native American students is an honor.”

VIC E Pres i dent

Throughout my presidency at Friends University, I have felt blessed to lead an organization whose alumni, donors, faculty and staff are passionate about providing an independent, Christian education for our students. We have enjoyed the support of many people and organizations that recognize the importance of producing students who contribute to society’s greater good. We know that an independent university education is likely to produce students who are: • more likely to work full-time for or contribute financially to not-for-profits; • more involved in community service and volunteer activities; and • more likely to believe their college experience instilled a deeper sense of values and ethics. Our institution’s concern for others is grounded in our early days as a Quaker university, and our alumni, donors, faculty and staff understand that producing future citizens who can help improve our society is becoming increasingly important. In these recent tough economic times, your support has made it possible for students to continue to afford an independent college education and to go out into the world and make a positive difference. Thank you for giving generously of your money, time and talents to support our students during the past year and the past 20 years Binnie and I have been here. Your support of our mission and purpose has been a blessing to Friends University and to us personally.

No one should be surprised to learn that Friends University’s tuition has increased significantly during the past 30 years. But what about scholarships? How much would you assume they have increased? Earlier this fall we hosted two scholarship luncheons on our campus. We have been hosting these luncheons for more than 20 years as a way for scholarship donors and their scholarship students to meet each other. Donors find out how their donations are helping their students achieve an education, and students see firsthand the importance of helping future generations achieve their educational goals. Since the late 1970s, the tuition at Friends University has increased by six times to almost $20,000 for traditional undergraduate students. However, our scholarship support has increased by more than 20 times during the same period. This is an amazing testament to the commitment and power of our donors’ support! This Donor Report recognizes everyone who made contributions of support during the 2009-10 year. Whether you established a life-changing scholarship, made a gift to the President’s Club, pledged to the annual Phonathon, or contributed your time and energy as a volunteer, your participation and generosity mean a lot to us and our students. Thank you for your support!

Best Laid Plans “A boss asked his employee, “Do you believe in life after death?” “Yes sir,” the employee said. “Well then, that makes everything just fine,” the boss went on. “After you left early yesterday to go to your grandmother’s funeral, she stopped in to see you.” We can all laugh at this story because we can identify with that sinking feeling the employee surely experienced. His “best laid plans” went awry. I’m sure when his grandmother really does pass away, her death will conjure up all kinds of emotions: sadness, loss, grief, etc. Many dear friends of the University have passed away this year: Paul Brown, G’38, Howard Rowlee, G’51, Hollis Schindler, G’52, Hazel Lister and Benny Mevey, G’53, just to name a few. Each one of these people designed a plan, well in advance of their death, as to how they wanted their treasures to be used. Friends University was blessed to be the recipient of their planning.

Planning begins with preparing yourself emotionally. Letting go of your treasures is hard to do. I know; my parents are in the process of downsizing. They are wisely ridding themselves of what they no longer can use or need. It is emotionally wearing and sometimes comical as we pull out of cupboards and off of shelves old knick-knacks lovingly given years ago by a neighbor, grandchild or friend. I have realized that all these things are a reflection of my parents’ life experiences – people who they touched and those who touched them. Some of these treasures, such as keepsakes passed down from their parents, are being passed on now to family members. Other treasures, such as their IRA, established a scholarship for students majoring in science, and they add to it each year with their annual IRA distribution. Their best-laid plans are coming to fruition – the right people can appreciate those gifts now and in the future. I hope you will consider sharing your treasures now or in the future with

Friends University. Scholarships are vitally important to attracting students and providing them with the education they need. They can be underwritten by a variety of treasures: no-longer-needed life insurance policies, IRA distributions and stocks. I want your best laid plans to obtain a good result.

Mike Brewer, President Biff Green, Matt Skillen, Creighton Snellenberg, Robert Bellows and Matt Berthot at the first-ever chili cook-off in 1999 as pictured in the 1998-99 Talisman Yearbook.


For 12 years, Friends University has hosted a battle of “best chili” that even the culinary connoisseurs of the campus community can’t resist. Now considered a tradition, this popular event had humble beginnings. In 1999, Shannon Maltbie-Davis was adviser to the Talisman yearbook and, as a requirement for receiving funds from the Student Government Association, was developing a new fundraiser. The yearbook raised funds by collecting entry fees and charging a small fee to vote in the first chili cook-off. “I remember that Shannon was really excited about planning the first chili cook-off and she was also enthusiastic about the turnout,” said Megan Hughes-Zarzo, G’00. With attendance of about 75 and much excitement from the campus community, Maltbie-Davis and the University Events Committee, comprised of Friends University employees, knew that this fundraiser could quickly turn into a much larger event. The Events Committee, with its staffing and resources, was able to work with the yearbook staff to create a larger event that attracted more and more participants. Yearbook staff members were able to work the event and earn their fundraising money.

The Events Committee was able to waive entry fees, provide free admission and tie the event into Cherry Carnival week. The event quickly grew with each year bringing more participants and more excitement. “I’m always amazed that it grows each year,” said Karen Scroggins, yearbook adviser from 2000 to 2007. By 2010, attendance had grown to around 950 with 16 booths, the maximum number of booths that the Garvey Multipurpose

Members of Multi-cultural Student Assembly pass out chili samples at the ninth-annual chili cook-off in 2007.

Gymnasium can hold. In addition to tasting a little chili from each booth, attendees enjoy hot dogs and drinks provided by the Events Committee. One aspect that has seen little change is the competition. Participants can win judges’ choice best chili and people’s choice best chili. The secret judges have ranged from students, faculty, administrators and staff. The judges and attendees also award best theme. “Each year I think, ‘how can they top that?’ and the next year they do,” said Terri Erker, G’04, Events Committee member and chili cook-off coordinator, referring to the creativity of the booths. Shayn Guillemette, current student and Drama Club member, said that he really enjoys participating and seeing the other booths. “We like to take the theme and put a dramatic spin on it.” He said he also enjoys the interaction with others. “It’s the one event where you get undergraduate and adult students, faculty, staff, administration and alumni together,” Scroggins said. Erker thinks the chili cook-off is one of Dr. Green’s favorite events “because it involves the entire University community.” The University hopes that this year’s chili cook-off, scheduled for Feb. 17, 2011, in the Garvey Multipurpose Gymnasium, will bring even more attendees to help celebrate Dr. Green’s last chili cook-off as University president.

Members of Acts of Faith presented FarmVille Chili at the 12th annual chili cook-off in 2010.
