At Long Last Longwood University

It's official. OnJuly 1, 2002, we became Longwood University. But the real celebration began onApril 24 when Governor MarkWarner visited Longwood for a signing ceremony ofthe legislation that would actually make us a "University" onJuly 1. It was a day that not only commemorated the first anniversary ofthe Great Fire of2001, but also marked the beginning ofa new era for Longwood.

Withaflourishofapenhand-craftedbyLongwoodstudent KevinJohnMeadowcroft,GovernorWarnerdeclaredthat "oneofVirginia'soldestcollegesisnowVirginia'snewest university."Addressingajam-packedcrowdonBlackwell Plaza,GovernorWarnersaid,"Ican'tthinkofahappier occasionthantocomebacktothiscommunityIlook aroundtodayandseechatLongwoodisathriving,vibrant institutionchathasprevailedoveradversity."Followinghis remarks,GovernorWarnerwaspresentedwithsomespecial giftsfromDr.CormieronbehalfofLongwood:three Longwoodapplicationsforhisdaughters,thefirstofficial LongwoodUniversitysweatshirtsforhisdaughters,anda nauticalstyleclockforhisdeskintheexecutivemansion.

What's in a name?

Oneofthefrequentquestionswereceivedwas"whyis LongwoodbecomingaUniversity?"Perhapsthebestanswer comesdirectlyfromourPresident,Dr.PatriciaP.Cormier:

"Webelievethatuniversityisabetterreflectionofthetype ofinstitutionthatLongwoodistoday,"saidPresident PatriciaP.Cormier."Weareacomprehensiveentitywitha broadarrayofundergraduatemajorsandminorsaswellas graduateprograms.LongwoodUniversitywillretainallof thecharacteristicsthatmakeuswhoweare:medium-sized, withcontrolledgrowthto5,000;smallclasses,allowingfor faculty/staffinteraction;andaninstitutioninvolvedinthe localcommunityandtheSouthsideVirginiaregion."

Oneofthelargestmaritimemuseumsintheworld,the Mariners'Museum,secamid550woodedacreswithalake, isdedicatedto"preservingandinterpretingthecultureofthe seaanditstributaries,itsconquestbyman,anditsinfluence oncivilizations."AmongitscollectionareMarkTwain's original(1859)steamboatpilot'slicense,theworld'soldest gondola (circa 1850),aJapanesesubfromWorldWarII, andoneofthefewlifejacketsfromtheTitanic.

Lastyear'sexpeditioncost$4.3million. (Seeaccompanyingstory.)

The conservation process involves electrolytic reduction, in which artifacts are immersed in a solution ofwater electrolyte, such as sodium carbonate, and a low voltage current is passed through them. This removes the corrosive chlorides from the interior ofthe metal and loosens the exterior encrustations.

HowdidyoufirstlearnabouttheWorldTradeCenterattack andwhatwereyourfirstthoughts?

Iwasinmyofficeandmypagerwentoff.Themessagefrom ourEmergencyOperationsCenterread:Anairplanehas crashedintotheWorldTradeCenter-CNNcarryingitlive. Iimmediatelyturnedonthetelevisioninmyofficetosee smokebillowingfromoneoftheWorldTradeCentertowers. Shortlythereafrer,thesecondplanecrashedintotheother tower.AtthatpointIrealizedthiswasn'tanaccident.My agencyhasbeenplanning,preparingandexercisingfora terroristeventforoversixyears,sowhenthethirdplanehit thePentagon,IknewthiswasnowaVirginiaincidentand thatIwouldbeinvolved.There'snowayyoucouldseethe livefootageandnothaveanemotionalreaction.Minewasa sinkingfeelinginmystomachdrivenbytheshockandhorror ofthesituation.Whenthefirstmediacallcamein,Ihadto pushasideasmuchofthatemotionasIcouldinordertodo myjob-communicatetothepubliconthePentagonattack throughstate,nationalandinternationalmedia.

OnceitwasclearthatAmericawasunderattack,whatwere yourfirstactionsregardingemergencymanagementinVirginia?

IhadtomakecontactwiththeGovernor'sPressOffice, assemblemyteamofpublicaffairsofficersandgotoour EmergencyOperationsCentertoactivateaJoint InformationCenter.OurEOCisaboutfourmilesfromthe VDEMadministrativeheadquarters.TheEOCisan undergroundfacilitylocatedbehindStatePolice HeadquartersneartheRichmondandChesterfieldCounty border.ThereweresecuritycheckpointstogetintotheState Policepropertyandatthattimewedidn'tknowwhenor wherethenextattackwouldoccur.MystaffandIbegan workingwiththeGovernor'sOfficetoissuenewsreleases regardingtheStateofEmergencyandthestatusofthe Pentagonresponse.Wecoordinatedallthemediaresponses fromstateagencies.Duringanemergency,it'scrucialthat informationbecoordinatedandconsistentsothatwedon't addtotherumorsandconfusionacrisisbrings.Theentire JointInformationCenterconceptisdesignedtofacilitate "speakingwithonevoice."

Theattacksoon camecloserto homewiththePentagon attack. Tellusabouthowyou were sent to thePentagon andwhatyou didupon arrival.

TheattackoccurredonaTuesdayandIworked12-14hour daysonTuesdayandWednesdayatthestateEOC.On Thursdaymorning,IreportedtothePentagon-actuallyto FortMyers,whichiswheretheJointOperationsCenterwas located.Thatcenterincludedrepresentativesfi;?mtheFBI, theDepartmentofDefense,theFederalEmergency ManagementAgency,theVirginiaDepartmentofEmergency Management,ArlingtonCountyofficialsandnumerousother local,stateandfederalrepresentatives.Myjobtherewasro helpcoordinatetheflowofinformationtothepublicabout theattackandrecoveryefforts.Themediaservedasoneof theprimarymeansofgettingthatinformationoutandcalls continuedfromlocal,nationalandinternationalmedia.

Whatwereyourprimary responsibilitiesatthePentagon site?

MyjobwastohelpestablishaJointInformationCenterso thatallthefederal,stateandlocalagenciesinvolvedcould provideconsistentinformationtothepublic.Inanycrisis, rumorsandmisinformationcanspreadrapidly,soIworked withothermediarelationsrepresentativestomakesurewe wereallputtingourcoordinatedandconsistentinformation.

Astheon-sitecommunications coordinator, whatwerethemajor problemsthatyoufaced?

Thereweresomanyagenciesandorganizationsinvolvedin theresponse,itwasdifficulttoputtheJointInformation Centerconceptinplace.Wehadpracticedthisinexercises, buttherealeventwasdifferent.Themediaweregatheredat aCitgogasstationclosetothePentagon.FortMyerswas aboutamileandahalfawayanditwasofflimitsrothe media.SohavingtheJICtherejustwasn'tworking.The DepartmentofDefensedidn'twantrobriefmediaatthe Citgostationbecausetheyhadadistinctneedroshowthe countryandtheworldthatthePentagonhadnotbeen destroyed.Sotheyconductedalltheirbriefingsinthe Pentagonbriefingroom.Weallagreedthatmadeperfect sense,soinsteadoffocusingonaliteralJICwhereeveryone waslocatedtogether,wetookthevirtualJICapproachand usedtelephonesandcomputerstocoordinate.Itworked well.Wewereabletorapidlydisseminateaccurateand consistentinformationandthemediaseemedhappywith thearrangement.ArlingronCounty,inparticular,did amasterfuljobofcommunicatingaboutthefire,police andrescueresponsetothePentagonsite.

The VirginiaDepartmentofEmergencyManagementprepares fora widerangeofdisastersandemergencies Hadyou ever rehearsedordiscussedanythingofthismagnitude or methodology?

"Terrorism has been on our radar screen since the early 1990s and we have been preparing for it. But ofall the things we'd trained for, airplanes loaded with full tanks ofjet fuel crashing into office buildings was not in any ofour exercise scenarios."

Move to Division I Creates Exciten1ent for Lancers

LongwoodUniversityPresidentDr.PatriciaP.Cormierwill informtheNCAAbyDecember1ofLongwood'sintention toreclassifyitsintercollegiateathleticprogramtoDivisionI status.Bydoingso,theinstitutionwillbeginafive-year process,includingaone-yearexploratoryperiod,tochange itsmembershipfromDivisionIItoDivisionI.

"Oneofthetremendouspositivesgeneratedbymovingto DivisionIistheopportunitytouseintercollegiateathletics asavehicletoraisethepublicprofileoftheinstitution," explainedLongwoodDirectorofAthleticsRickMazzuto.

"Theincreasedopportunitiestoplayotherhighprofile educationalinstitutions,andtotraveltomajormetropolitan areaswheretheyarelocated,willgreatlybenefitLongwoodintermsofmoremediainterestandvisibility."

Essentially,thismeansthatthecurrent2002-03year becomestheUniversity's"exploratoryyear"whilethe followingyearof2003-04beginsthefour-year

reclassificationprocess.Akeydareduringthistimewillbe Sept.1,2003-adatebywhichallLongwoodstudentathletesandtheathleticprogramwillbeevaluatedunder DivisionIacademicrules.

"Idonotthinkthatthiswillhaveasignificantimpacton theathleticprogrambecauseoftheacademicstandardsof theinstitutionatpresent,"saidMazzuto.

Anotherimportantdareduringtheearlyreclassificationprocess willbeSept.1,2004-adatebywhichtheathleticprogram mustoperateunderallrulesandregulationsofDivisionI andcontinuetodosoforthefollowingthreeyearsuntilthe actualreclassificationbytheNCAA(Sept.1,2007).Thisdare issignificantbecauseofcompliancewiththescheduling requirementthat,forexample,willrequiretheLancermen's andwomen'sbasketballteamstoeachplayaminimumof26 DivisionIopponentswhilethebaseballteamwouldbe requiredtoscheduleatleast35DivisionIopponents.

Thisbasicallymeanschataminimumof75percentofthe currentathleticprogramschedules(opponents)willchange.

"Thefactis,thatasofSept.1,2004-thesignificantchange intermsofschedulingwillalreadybeinplace,"stated Mazzuto."WhileofficialreclassificationwillcomeonSept. I,2007,essentially,wewillactasaDivisionIathletic programbeginningwith2004."

Mazzutofeelsthatthebiggestchallengewillbedevotingand developingtheresourcesthatwillallowLongwoodtobe successfulandcompeteimmediatelyinDivisionI (seeLancerClubarticleonpage29).Headdsthatthe impactontheathleticprogramwillbeacrosstheboardeverythingwillchange.Themajorityofthefundingwill comefromstudentfeesgeneratedfromanexpanded enrollment.Theoperatingbudgetwillincreasesignificantly, thescholarshipbudgetwillmorethandouble,coaching contractswillmovefromthecurrentninemonthsto 12monthswhileaddingassistantcoachesinmostofthe sports,andfacilitieswillbeaddressedaswell.

"We'recurrentlydevelopingplansforaconvocationcenter whichwillbethevenueformen'sandwomen'sbasketball andwillalsohouseofficesandtrainingfacilitiesforthe entireathleticprogram,"saidMazzuto."We'realsolooking atdevelopingplanstorenovateourcurrentfacilitiesthat includeLancerStadium(baseball),LancerField(lacrosse, soccer,softball)theLancerCourcs(tennis),andBarlowField (fieldhockey)."

AnothergoalofMazzuto'sandtheathleticprogramisto becomeaffiliatedwithaDivisionIconference-thetarget beingtheBigSouthConferencewithheadquartersin Charlotte,NorthCarolina.CurrentBigSouthmember institutionsincludeBirmingham-Southern(Ala.),Charleston Southern(S.C.),CoastalCarolina(S.C.),Elon(N.C.),High Point(N.C.),Liberty,NorthCarolina-Asheville,Radford,and Winthrop(S.C.).Anadditionalpolicywithintheathletic programwillbetoscheduleasmanyDivisionIinstitutions withintheCommonwealthofVirginiaaspossible-schools likeJamesMadisonUniversity,theUniversityofRichmond, VirginiaCommonwealthUniversity,theCollegeofWilliam &Mary,andOldDominionUniversity-justtonameafew.

"ThisisanexcitingtimeforLongwoodAthleticsandits studenc-achleces,"summarizedMazzuto."Thereare tremendouschangesathandchatwillbenefitboththe Universityanditsstudents."
