SAXL PARK

2016

SAXL PARK: HOME TO THE EAGLES SINCE 2013 Saxl Park is the home to Husson’s men’s and women’s cross country teams and located between State Street and Mount Hope Avenue in Bangor, Maine. This very pleasant trail system is a series of loops going through a large field with a small pond near the northern end. Some sections have stone dust surface, others are simply mowed paths. There are several benches for those who want to rest and enjoy the surroundings. Bobolinks nest in the field. The approximately 75 acres of undeveloped land along the western boundary provides habitat for birds and other wildlife that can be viewed from the park.

ATHLETIC FACILITIES

2016

Wight’s Strength & Conditioning Facility

Husson opened the brand new Wight’s Strength & Conditioning Facility in conjunction with the start of 2016 fall athletic practices.   This 2,200 square foot facility serves Husson’s 21 intercollegiate sports and 500 plus athletes under the direction of Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Marissa Wehr.  It is equipped primarily with free weights in combination with half rack platforms and accessories.  This allows our athletes to do a variety of exercises and adds safety and quality to our workouts.

William P. Newman Athletic Facility The William P. Newman Athletic Facility is one of the original structures built on campus in 1968 when Husson moved to this location. Named after William Newman, Husson trustee and prominent Maine banker, this facility serves students, faculty, and the community. The maple center court of William P. Newman Gymnasium is home to volleyball, basketball, intramurals, classes and special events, as it seats 1,200. Locker rooms, an athletic training facility, a free weight room, classrooms, coaches’ offices, and athletic administration offices are also part of this busy building. The Webber Pool, Swan Center, D. Bruce MacGregor Sports Hall of Fame, Kenduskeag Human Performance Institute, Trott Fitness Center and Wadleigh Academic Center are all attached to the Newman Athletic Facility.

William P. Newman Gymnasium The William P. Newman Gymnasium is the home to the men’s and women’s basketball teams and the women’s volleyball team and was completed in 1968, and named in honor of former Husson Trustee and prominent Maine Banker, William P.

ATHLETIC FACILITIES Dr. John W. Winkin Sports Complex

2016

The Dr. John W. Winkin Sports Complex is home to Husson’s baseball, field hockey, and football teams and is one of the best facilities in all of New England. The vision of legendary baseball coach Dr. John W. Winkin helped transform Husson’s baseball field into a multisport complex, complete with field turf, dugouts, and a press box. Dr. Winkin got the project off the ground by donating his summer camp to the school, and the proceeds from it jump started the project. His gift inspired longtime friend Harold Alfond to make a $1,000,000 donation to Husson for the Harold Alfond Diamond, field turf, and a drainage system to be installed. There is seating for 3,000 spectators for baseball, football, and field hockey games. Dr. Winkin served as the head baseball coach at Husson, Colby College, and the University of Maine at Orono. He also served as the Athletic Director at Colby and spent time working for both the Red Sox and the Yankees baseball franchises. Dr. Winkin was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013. Sadly, Dr. Winkin passed away on July 19, 2014. However, his contributions to athletics and baseball at Husson and the state of Maine will be enjoyed by young people for years. In the fall of 2015, Winkin Sports Complex under went a facelift with the addition of a press box for football and field hockey. In the spring of 2016, the Winkin Sports Complex went under another facelift with replacement of the FieldTurf surface, updated drainage system and fencing.

Clara Swan Center & Trott Fitness Studios The Swan Center bears the name of legendary Clara Swan; Husson student ‘32, professor, coach, and Dean. At the age of 102, Swan still attends Husson basketball games and remains a faithful supporter of the University. The Swan Center houses the Richard ‘65 and Alice Trott Fitness Studio, a state-of- the-art fitness center with twenty cardiovascular fitness machines, a set of selectorized weight equipment for every major muscle group and a full range of free weight equipment. The facility underwent a dramatic 2012 facelift and is now climate-controlled with 3,000 square feet, flat screen TVs, and a sound system. Primary benefactors of the Swan Center were Husson alumnus Richard Trott ‘65 and his wife Alice. Built in 2001 as a fitness and performance testing center for students, the facility houses the Kenduskeag Research Center, which offers research equipment for performance testing. This research center was funded by Hilda Hutchins and is utilized across the curriculum, especially in the departments of Kinesiology, Physical Therapy and Physical Education. 4

2016

The John P. Boucher Field, home to Husson’s men’s and women’s soccer and lacrosse teams, and was built in 2001 through a generous donation by Husson alumnus John P. Boucher ‘66. In 2007, the field underwent a face lift. Once again, with Mr. Boucher’s generous support, the field lost it’s natural grass playing surface and was converted to FieldTurf. The $650,000 renovation made the John P. Boucher Field one of the finest collegiate fields in all of New England. Granite and iron fences surround the field and bench enclosures giving the complex that “old world” feel. With the help from yet another donation in the fall of 2011, the Boucher Field went through another fantastic facelift with the addition of the gorgeous press box and lights. Night contests at Boucher Field are truly spectacular with the campus backdrop set against this beautiful facility. John Boucher ‘66 played three sports at Husson: baseball, soccer, and golf. He has been inducted into both the Husson Sports Hall of Fame and the Husson Alumni Hall of Fame and is very involved with Husson as a member of the Board of Trustees. A soccer coach for more than 20 years, Boucher began his coaching career as the coach of a premier under-12 team in the Granite State Girls Soccer League. He became President of that league and during his tenure, the league grew to 1,800 players (ranging in age from 8-19) with more than 100 teams. He went on to coach girls soccer at Souhegan High School located in Amherst, New Hampshire. Under his direction, Souhegan High School Girls Soccer won eight state championships in a row. The school holds the national soccer record for consecutive state championships with ten with two coming prior to Boucher’s arrival. Boucher retired from coaching with a career record of 175-15-5. Boucher’s record in postseason play was 38-2, with both losses coming in the New Hampshire Division I State Championship finals.

BANGOR: OUR CITY

2016

Top entertainers are drawn to Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion (left) and Cross Insurance Center, two top venues in downtown Bangor. Eric Church (right) performs at the waterfront stage for a sold out concert in July 2016.

Husson's vibrant hometown of Bangor ranks as the major commercial and cultural center for eastern and northern Maine. Bangor is the third most populous city in Maine, as it has been for more than a century. Bangor is the largest market town, distribution center, transportation hub, and media center in a five-county area whose population tops 330,000 and which includes Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock, Aroostook and Washington counties. Husson students, faculty, staff and visitors cite Bangor as one of the leading perks of the university, which is located just two miles north of the bustling, exciting and welcoming downtown. Bangor has become one of northeast’s top urban attractions, exuding all of the charm and hospitality one expects from a grand Northern city with the amenities expected in the largest destinations. The secret is out on Bangor and its metro population of 153,923. The city is diverse in attractions, accommodations and niche districts. Bangor enjoys a diverse and youthful population, unique neighborhoods and parks, and an abundance of entertainment districts.

HUSSON UNIVERSITY

2016

Founded in 1898 as the Shaw Business School on the second floor of a building in downtown Bangor, Husson is one of the northeast’s leading institutions of higher learning, a midsize, private comprehensive research university that emphasizes undergraduate learning and living experiences. Members of the 2015 undergraduate student body, including Husson studentathletes, are outstanding academic achievers and active participants in the campuses' many organizations and activities. They also compose the most diverse enrollment ever as Husson continues to attract students from many ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, geographic and religious backgrounds. Since its inception, the university has taken great pride in the quality of education – and quality of life – its students enjoy. Each of the five undergraduate colleges – College of Business, College of Health and Education, New England School of Communications, School of Sciences and Humanities and School of Pharmacy – attracts students with varying goals and dreams. At Husson, professors know their students’ names and take an interest in students’ ideas. Recognized globally for their research and scholarship prowess, faculty members believe in the importance of balancing professional pursuits with classroom instruction, and they value their relationships with students. Some of the nation’s leading scholars teach at Husson, helping students develop an academic program that meets individual objectives, and they encourage students to enhance primary areas of study by choosing among hundreds of elective courses, course-related internships, off-campus study and accelerated degree programs. Through the Honor Code, student-directed service opportunities and campus programs, undergrads also consider moral and ethical issues and put the many facets of their lives into a personal framework of values. At Husson, the big material resources are in place: beautiful grounds and buildings, wellequipped classrooms and labs, modern options for housing, and ample athletic and recreational facilities. Off campus, undergrads have all the urban conveniences offered by one of Maine’s most vibrant cities, Bangor. Though located within a short distance of downtown activities, the quality of Husson life is reflected in much smaller, less public ways – attending an Eagle sporting event, researching papers, running into friends while walking on campus, or grabbing a late-night snack.

HUSSON FACTS • Undergraduate enrollment - 2,704 • Graduate enrollment - 710 • Full-time faculty - 153 • 457 university employees • 208-acre scenic campus located just north of downtown Bangor • Campus includes 13 buildings • 20,242 living alumni; 1,219 reside in Bangor 15


HUSSON PRESIDENT

2016

President Robert A. Clark was raised in Albion, Maine, where he spent many an afternoon watching the great Carl Yastrzemski of the Red Sox slug hits in Fenway Park. Named Husson’s sixth president in 2010, Clark has taken a keen interest in athletics at Husson during his five years at the University. His appreciation for athletics and his commitment to the success of the Eagles was on frequent display in the last year, including being among the first to extend congratulations to the football, men’s soccer, field hockey, men’s basketball, women’s outdoor track and field and softball conference champions. Clark served as the chair of the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Presidents Council from 2014-2016. This support has included the endorsement of an athletics capital improvement plan that has surpassed $20 million, which orchestrates efforts to improve the student experience for athletes and assists with recruiting. Prior to the Husson presidency, Clark served as the Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Dean of the Schroeder Family School of Business Administration at the University of Evansville in Indiana. He also was the founding executive director of the University’s Institute for Global Enterprise in Indiana. He has held academic appointments as a faculty member in Finance and Global Business at Butler University, the University of Tampa, and the University of Vermont. Clark has led a number of important initiatives at Husson, including the creation of the Edward O. and Mary Ellen Darling Learning Center, the Ronan Center for Financial Technology, the Wadleigh Academic Center and a Southern Maine satellite campus. He also helped secure a $1 million gift to create the Dr. Phil Grant Distinguished Professorship in Management and Economics and increased the endowment by over $6.5 million. During Clark’s tenure, Husson has witnessed the graduation of the first class from the School of Pharmacy, received ACPE accreditation, received CACREP accreditation for two graduate counseling programs, integrated the New England School of Communications into the institution and received National Recognition for the university’s Internship Program. In addition, Clark has experience as a United States Army Administrative Officer, Consultant, Pension Administrator and Controller. Clark has served as a Fulbright Scholar at the Norwegian School of Management and as a guest faculty member at the Business and Economics University in Vienna. He has published articles on securities market regulation and emerging markets in a number of refereed academic journals, authored major grants from the Lilly Foundation, U.S. Department of Education, and the Kemper Foundation, and currently serves on the Bloomberg Businessweek’s Academic Advisory Panel. Clark earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from the University of Maine in 1976 and Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in 1977. He earned a Master’s degree in Business Administration in 1983. Clark was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy in Finance with a minor in Economics from Purdue University in 1989. The Albion native attended Lawrence High School and is married to Patricia McGarry, a graduate of nearby Bangor High School and the University of Maine. They have two daughters: Sarah and Elizabeth, who currently attends Husson.

HUSSON PROVOST

2016

Husson University prepares students for fulfilling professional careers and a lifetime of personal growth. The academic community has carefully designed each major to include a strong foundation of general education coursework combined with the professional courses that connect theory to practice. Professors and advisors prioritize quality classroom instruction and personal student attention. Close collaboration between athletics and academics results in a full range of support for our student athletes that includes academic and career services. That a number of coaches also teach at Husson University demonstrates confidence in our coaching staff and the community-wide effort of developing athletes as students within and outside of the classroom.

Athletes at Husson develop skills in leadership, teamwork, organization and self-discipline. At Husson, staff, faculty, and administrators encourage athletes to engage in all aspects of the University community so as to fully integrate these lessons into the greater community. I am grateful for the efforts the athletic department and fully acknowledge their vibrant contributions to Husson University through the student athlete experience. Lynne Coy-Ogan, Ed.D. Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

2016

Since 2013, Frank Pergolizzi has guided Husson to significant levels of accomplishment as the university’s Director of Athletics.

Pergolizzi occupies an important leadership role on campus, serving in numerous capacities since arriving in Bangor in October 2013. Aside from his role in Newman Athletic Facility, Pergolizzi serves on the Senior Cabinet for the university and the Husson Sports Hall of Fame Committee. He has chaired three different personnel searches for significant roles on campus. He also is active within the NAC as a member of the athletics directors council and serves as the Championships Chairperson on the NAC Executive Committee. In his short time in Bangor, Pergolizzi has placed his stamp on the program, positioning Husson Athletics among NCAA Division III’s most successful in the nation. Under his leadership, three varsity sports (women’s golf, women’s tennis and men’s outdoor track and field) have been added, bringing the department’s total number to 21. He has witnessed Husson teams win eight total conference championships in football, men’s golf, men’s basketball, field hockey, men’s soccer, women’s outdoor track and field and twice in softball. In the last year, a men’s diver became the first Eagle to win a single event at the NEISDA Championships. The football program won a school-record eight games, its first ECFC championship and hosted its first NCAA playoff game. The field hockey team went undefeated in conference play and along with men’s soccer and softball advanced to the national tournament. In 2014, Pergolizzi secured an exclusive apparel deal for the entire Eagle athletics department with Adidas. The cumulative grade point average for Husson student-athletes has continued at high levels throughout Pergolizzi’s tenure. Competitive successes, such as a school-record eight straight NAC men’s golf championships from 2006-13 and eight straight regular season and seven straight NAC Tournament titles for softball from 2008-15, are an expectation on campus. Individual accomplishments have also become the norm, with five Husson student-athletes being named to an All-America team and over 50 being named All-Conference. Pergolizzi has addressed numerous facility upgrades, including the creation of the Wadleigh Academic Center and the current renovations to the athletics weight room. Pergolizzi joined Husson from West Virginia University Institute of Technology where he served as athletics director beginning in 2009. He is currently in his 23rd year as a collegiate director of athletics having also served at Saint Francis (Pa.), East Tennessee State and Southeastern Louisiana University. During his time at Saint Francis, Pergolizzi also served as head football coach. Pergolizzi serves on the boards of the Bangor Boys and Girls Club, Convention and Visitors Bureau, as well as the Town of Hampden Recreation Committee. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Pergolizzi received a Bachelor of Arts in American Civilization from Williams College and Master of Arts in Physical Education and Sport Administration from Western Michigan University. Frank and his wife, Mary, reside in Hampden, Maine. 18
