ess than eight months rem a i n before Pacific Luthera n U n i versity begins its year-long cente n n i a l observa nce, a n d i n many ways one gets the impression that it is already u nderway. It seems everyone is involved i n planning, or at least a nticipat­ ing, their roles and participation. As p l a n n i n g fo r a myriad of special events has proceeded, the celebration has come to mean d ifferent things to d iffer­ ent groups of people, reflecting the vast diversity of PLU constituencies and inter­ est groups. The phenomenon was inevitable as every campus unit and major constituency were invited to share in pla n ning.

PLU-Baltic Exchange Program A U.S. First By Jim peterson

he first U . s. governme nt-sponso red program i ntended to assist the Baltic nations with development of their economies is being conducted by Pacific Lutheran University. The PLU School of Busi ness Ad min istra­ tion has received a $ 7 5 ,000 g rant from the U.s. Information Agency to set up aca­ demic exchange programs with u n ive rsi­ ties in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Dr. Gu ndar King, dean of the school, spent three weeks in August in the Baltic countries. He presented a o ne-week semi­ nar in Riga, Latvia, on "the economic devel­ opment of a sove reig n nation" and lec­ tured at the universities on "how to set up schools of business." He also screened potential students for the exchange programs that w i l l begin next spring. These students wi l l be desig­ nated Samantha Smith Scholars. The project is a part of the Samantha Smith Memorial Exchange Program, named for t h e young New England g i r l who charmed the world with her written pl ea

Riga, Latvia

for peace to then Soviet leader Yu ri And ro­ pov and subsequent trip to the Soviet Union. She later died in an ai rplane crash. Bal ic Schools involved in the exchange are the Riga and Kau nas (Lithuania) Poly­ technic Insti tutes and the Estonian Busi­ ness School i n Tal l i n n . The program is also expected to expand to the recently reopened Vytau tas The Great (Witold) U n i­ versity, where new concepts in education are being pio nee red and where its govern­ ing board members are fro m western co untries, King pointed out that while the Baltic countries, like others in the Soviet sphere, are i nterested i n development of market d riven free enterprise econom ies, they have vi rtually no experience or expertise in these areas. "Thus education is a vital i n i­ tial priority," he said. He noted that until recently i t was com­ mon for Balt ic students to learn about capitalist systems by studying Charles Dick­ ens. Fo r Dr. King, 63, born and raised in Riga, the new venture is a poignant real izat ion of lifelong dreams. Forty-five years ago, as Soviet armies were sweeping across the tiny Bal tic countries, he and remai n i � g mem bers of his family had to make rapid, heart-rending decisions about their futu re. His father had already been deported to S iberia and two brottlers had bee n kil led . G u ndar, then 1 8, and a b roth er, Tal i s,

decided to leave fo r the West_ Of those who stayed, his mother was l ater deported and two other brothers met death. "I remember an i nde pen dent Latvia," says King. "I know what they lost. and what they are now gaini ng," Over the decades, King has become an i nternational ly-recogn ized expert on Baltic economic syste ms. He was also the orga­ ni zer an d fi rst president of the Assoc iation for the Advancement of Baltic Studies. King has visited the Baltic states on ly once before si nce 1944. Following a 1976 visit he said he wou l d not go back to h is hom eland u nt i l t h e gove r n m e n t was changed . It is a measu re of the rad ical changes tak ing place that he has accepted the invitation, not only to retu rn, but to spearhead a h ighly visible prog ram of vital importance to the futu re of these coun­ tries. Students from the Baltic may study American cu lture, busi ness management and eco logy, among other cou rse options at P L U . American stude nts at the Baltic schools may pursue either formal academ­ ic stud ies or supervised i nternshi ps_ PLU Political Science Professo r Dr. Donald Farmer w i ll be th resident director of the program with headq uarters in R iga .

COO dinator Seeks Cultural Reinforcement For Minorities PLU Adds Clout



Student prog ams

Steve Smith


dditional scholars h i p fu nds, new ad m i n istrative perso n­ nel, increased program activities and beautifu l ly remodeled offic­ es bear evidence of a new era in min ority student programs at PLU. Ea r l i e r th i s yea r the PLU adm i nistration pledged $ 50,000 in schola rs h i p funds specifi ca l ly earmarked to encourage more mino rity students to attend PLU. On Nov. 1 3, Security Pacific Bank plans a specia l program for leaders in busi ness and educa­ tion to call renewed attention to its endowed sch o l a rs h i p p ro­ g ram for m i nority stude nts in busi ness at PLU. Several yea rs ago Rain ier Bank, later merged with Secu rity Pacific, pl edged S200,OOO toward the p rogram, and Secu rity Pac ifk is reinforc­ ing that commitment. Last spring the Office of Stu­ dent Life reo rga nized its special student services into one m u lti­ faceted M I CA Se rv ices office. The offi ce, und er d i rection of Cristi n a del Rosario, p rov ides prog ra ms and counselmg for Minority, Internation al, Com mut­ er and Adult students. It represe nts an a m b itious commitment to special constitu­ encies that is u ncom m o n at smaller schools. Steve Smith, a PLU a l u m n us who ea rned h i s b a c h e l o r ' s degree i n 1983 i n psych ology and h is master's degree in edu­ cation i n 1988, is the minority student coord i nator . Sm ith's charge is two-fo l d : he works closely with the Ad m i ssions office to recruit m i nority stu­ de nts and is o rg a n i z i n g p ro· grams and activities to encour­ age them to stay once they are on campus. The u n i versity scholarsh i p funds, desig nated a s M i n o rity Leadersh ip Awards, range from

S500 to S2, 500 and are intended to s u p p l e m e n t n eed-bas ed awards. Twenty-two reci p ients h a ve been n a m ed for the 1 989-90 academic yea r. An additional 1 9 students are receiving sc holars h i ps from the Secu rity Pacific fu nd. PLU conti n ues as the Pierce Cou nty headquarters of M ESA ( M athematics, Engi neering, Sci­ ence Achievement), a science-ori­ e n ted en richment program for m i nority h i gh school stu de nts. Brenda Wal ker coord i n ates the progra m s and activities on the PLU ca m p u s and i n local high schools. MESA has developed a wide network of i nvolved people i n both the education and business com m u n ity, according to Wal ker.

II f you have one good person you c a n do some g reat things." Pa cific Lutheran U n i versity's minority affa i rs coord i n ator, Steve Sm ith , reflected on h is recol lection of P h i l l i p M i n er, a n Ad missions Office admi nistrator at PLU from 1 972-84. M i ner, an Af r i c a n A m e r i ca n , p r o v i d e d much o f t h e c a m p u s e n e rgy res u lting i n increased mino rity e n ro l l m en ts, acti ve c a m p u s m i nority prog rams, and PLU visi­ b i l i ty i n the loca l minority co m­ mu nity. H i s was not a lone effort, but h is enthu siasm and pe rso nal ity attracted others to become involved on a variety of fronts. S m i t h , though m o re soft­ spoken than M i ner, h opes h is tenure will also be one of visible activity on behalf of m in o rities on campus. " I have had a positive experi­ ence at PLU as both an u nder­ g radu ate a n d g radu ate stu­ dent" he sa id. "It's the kind of experience I wou l d l i ke to en cou rage more mi norities to explore." He adm its it is not an easy task. The u n i versity co m m i t­ ment and support of many per­ sons on campus are pluses, but finances and demograph ics w i l l remain chronic problems. By heritage, PLU is a "white" campus which does not seem c u l t u ra l l y i n viting t o many minorities. And a lack of sc holar­ ship su pport has become more acute with the decline i n federal fu nds in recent years PLU also is at a com petitive d i sadvantage i n h i r i n g h i g h l y qual ified m i nority fac ulty mem­ bers a n d a d m i n i strators, who can com mand premium salaries. "The renewed comm itment this yea r h e l ps," Sm ith sa i d . "Hopefu lly it will demonstrate the u n iversity's i ntentions." He also hopes that PLU can encou r­ age some of its minority g radu­ ates to stay, or retu rn, to cam­ pus as employees, as he d id . "P ro bably a majo rity of PLU staffers work here for reasons other than opti m u m salary lev­ els," he conti n u ed . "If we ca n give ou r m i n o rity stu dents a positive ca mpus experience and enco u rage con cepts of career vocation a nd service, they too will feel a loyalty and willingness to retu rn." A native of Port l a n d , Ore., Sm ith is typ ical of many middle class m i norities who have grown up "stradd l ing" cultures. The son of an engi neer and stepson of a h i gh school a d m i n i strator, he g rew up with m a n y w h i te friends. At home and at PLU he was accepted as "Steve, a fun guy to be with," b u t there was l ittle

encouragement fo r "Steve, the black person." He experie nced a lonel iness that confronts most m i nority individuals i n a majority world. It was d i ff i c u l t to share h i s raci a l and cultural fee l i ngs with oth e r w i s e co n g e nia l friends. Though not a campus activist at PLU , he sometimes ap preciat­ ed the com panionsh ip of bla cks. They wo u l d then be asked by w e ll-me a n i n g w h ite stud e nts why they sepa rated themselves. " M ost peop le seek cu l t u r al reinforcement." he said . "That's true of Scand inavians, or differ­ ent religious grou ps, ath letes or even different academic majors. Why not blacks?" He added, "We see i ntegration as a desirable goal. But i ntegra­ tion doesn't have to mean aban­ doning our cu ltu ral g roup." While se rious racial di scussions ca n be as sensitive, and some­ times as "taboo" as relig ion and pol itics, they are necessary, for t h e emoti o n a l well-being and growth of the m i nority as well as for the awareness of the majority. C u ltural and racial dif­ ferences don't j u st disappear by wish ing them away, Smith point­ ed out. He h o pes that his own ener­ gies, and more encouragement of bl ack stu dent g roups (BANTU) will help fi l l the void expe rienced by m i n o rity stu d e n ts. "They need to know we are aware of their con cern s and co m m i tted to their welfare," he sa id. Smith also h opes that more cam pu s a ctivity and increased fi n a ncia l c o m m itments wi l l tra nslate i nto renewed i nterest i n PLU in the minority com m u n i­ ty. While many i n that co mmuni­ ty h ave had positive experiences with PLU indi v i d ua ls, they tend to retai n a negative i m age of the i nstituti on. Sm ith p rea, �ted that increas­ ing eth nic d iVersity on all cam­ puses, including PLU, is the trend of the futu re . He poi nted out that homogenous campus popu­ lations of the past reflected the p r edo m i n a ntly h o m o g e n ous society i n which they existed. "The busi ness and professional com m u n i ties w i l l conti n u e to demand educated persons. AQd as they g row to serve m o re d iverse publ ics, they will seek a more d iverse employment mix," he observed. The trend is s i m i l a r to, a nd parallel to, that being experi­ enced with respect to the global com m u n ity. G roups, l i ke soci et­ ies, must reach out to each oth­ er to b u i l d g reater awareness and understanding. •

Three Professors Earn Awards For Teaching Excellence A com m itment to exce l lence in teach ing at PLU has been sup­ ported for fo ur years by the Bu rlington Northern Fou ndation Facu lty Ach ievement Award s program. Awards are presented to three outstanding professors each year. This fal l's reCi p i ents are J udith Ramaglia, busi ness admin­ istration; Robert Stivers, rel igion; and Fred Tobiaso n, chemistry. Now in her eighth year at PLU, Ramag l ia served as d i rector of accounting prog rams last year. Her co lleag ues say the sign ifi­ cance of her scholarship is i nter­ d i sci p l i na ry strength and the enhancing of classroom teach ing effectiveness. She presented four papers at p rofessional conferences t h i s year o n topics related to in terna­ tional ization of cou rses. Her lan­ guage research i nd icates that the i nterpretation of the mean­ i ng of acco u n t i n g terms depends, t o a degree, on cultur­ al group membership. A 1 6-year faculty veteran, Sti­ vers was also cited for h is com­ m i tment to i n terdisc i p l i nary studies and hi s contributions to the Integrated Stud ies Program. One senior call ed Stivers' Interim cou rse, "Christian Moral Issues," the best cou rse he ever had . Stivers' co ntributions to the field of Ch ristian eth ics, i n partic­ u lar his i n novative ap proach to the economics of sustainab i lity, have earned him national atten­ tion. The author of two previous books, he co-authored a th i rd , Christian Ethics: A Case Method Approach, and edited a fourth, Reformed Faith and Economics,

this past year. He is described as "an energet­ ic and creative scholar who has brought his intel lectual gifts to

bear on mult ip!e aspects of u n i­ versity life." Tobiason is beginning hiS 24th year on the faculty. He contin­ ues to direct a nationally-recog­ n i zed student-facu l ty research program in the area of phenolic polymers. Last year he or one of h is stu­ dents presented fo u r profession­ al papers, i n c l u d i n g p resenta­ tions at the American Chem ical Society national meeting and at t h e Acad emy of Science i n Zag reb, Yugoslavia. He also auth ored or co-au thored (with students) t h ree pr ofessi o nal papers. In J u n e he and 11 PLU stu­ d e n ts ret u r n e d p rematu rely from study i n China due to the widespread d istu rbances there. This is h i s sixth ou tstan d i ng professor award . The S1 ,500 awards are fu nded by a Fo u n dation g rant. Recipi­ ents are selected from nomi na­ tions submitted by al l cam pus schools and d i visions. The pro­ gram is funded through 1 991 . Previ ous award w i n n ers were Stu art Bancroft and Gerald Myers, business ad m i n istration; Stan Brue, economics; Paul Men­ ze l , p h i l osophy; Wil l iam Becvar, com m u n ication arts; Ed Clausen and Chris Brown ing, h istory; Ann Kel l eher, political science; and Ann Hi rsch, n u rsi ng.

Less than five years later a new jazz­ news format and 24-ho u r service d istin­ guished KPLU from its com petitors. Listeners and professionals, nearby and nationwide, have been ta k i ng n otice, as translators fed the station sig nal through­ out western Wa shington, the KPLU news desk fed nort hwest news to the nation via N PR and the station beca me a regular sponsor of live area jazz events. The visibil ity was made possible by a transm itter at Port O rchard on property provided by Burl i ngton Northern ra i l road. It provided a vastly improved signal over the previous ca mp us-based transm itter, but sti l l was essentially just "peeking over the top" of average terrain at 620 feet. So coverage remai ned spotty. FM's li ne­ of-sight signal tends to b u m p into h i lls, mounta ins a nd even bui l di ngs, leaving large pocket areas with poor reception or no signal at all. Thus, station personnel have rema i ned , alert to opportu n ities for further i m p rove­ ments. The right opportun ity su rfaced three years ago, and since then, another bold move has been in p rog ress. After working through a host of tech nical and bureaucratic detai l s, KPLU-FM is now tra ns­ mitting from a new antenna on West Tiger Mountain near Issaquah, overlooki ng Seat­ tle and environs from 3,084 feet. It is hun­ d reds of feet hi gh er than the traditional Cougar Mounta in site from which the best heard Seattle area stations transm it. It is also a site that only a mountain goat could love, accessible via a prim itive cres­ tline trail, and where wi nter winds can cre­ ate horizontal icicles, accord i n g to Ch ief Engi neer David Christian. "With the new signal we are 'ta l k i ng' with a public rad io sig nal second to none," said Station General Manager Martin Neeb. "It is a state-of-the-art broadcast site wh ich we believe w i l l produce the best radio sou n d and reception a nywhere i n the Puget Sound area." Joining KPLU on the tower are commer­ cial stations KLSY, KRPM, KPMS and "host" KBSG, a Viacom-owned statio n . All are major area stations. KPLU retains its transm itter at Port Orchard as a backup "so electrical interrup'ons from storms and other fai l u res will not keep us from our appointed duty - 24 hours a day, seven days a week," said Neeb. The move was fu nded by contri butions from listeners and several grants. The Pub­ lic Broadcast Fou ndation of Southwest Wash i ngton provided the pace sett i ng chal lenge g ra n t . Other g ra n ts were received from the Haas, B u rli ngton North­ ern, Fuchs and American Fou ndations, Old National Bank and the state of Wash i ng­ ton . T h e transmitter move i s the latest devel­ opment in a 23-year saga of station prog­ ress that began with 1 0-watt capabil ity in 1965. Five years later power was i ncreased to 40,000 watts. In 1980 the Port Orchard

site was fou nd, making possible the leap to 1 00,000 watts of power. With translators added later i n eight locations i n western Washington, KPLU-FM cou ld be heard from Ca nada to O regon and by more people than any other radio station in the state. The Seattle-Tacoma ma rket, with over two mi llion people, is the 1 6th largest in the nation. Ironically, the station wil l no longer have to tra n smit at 1 00,000 watts, which w i l l allow the transmitter t o "coast" below its capacity and increase the life span of the equi pment, sa id Ch ristian. For persons fa m i l i ar with PLU rad io-TV­ audio over nearly three decades, it comes as no surprise that Chri st i a n has once aga i n been the technical wizard behind the move. His mastery of electronics and yea­ man capacities ha ve made all previous KPLU-FM advances possible, as well as those in the PLU television and audio ser­ vices operations. Th ese advances wou ld have been fiscally prohibitive if cont racted off-campus. "There is so me risk invol ved in a project of this magn itude," Ch ristian added. '''We cou ld sit back and say we have done all we can do, that the technical or financial risks are too great. Or we can go out and get our noses b lood ied a bit, and do it. "It was the kind of opportunity that we knew going in that if we didn't do it, we'd always wish we had," he observed. He esti-

Of Weste rn Was h i ngton mated that the station will be add i ng some 5,000 square miles of coverage and i m p roved signal in areas a l ready covered. The site is owned by Weyerhaeuser, and i s leased by Viacom. KPLU-FM was the fi rst of five stations who exp ressed i nterest in leasing antenna space. "PLU is fo rtu nate to have one of only four full-power N PR stations i n Washington state," said Neeb. "It is the o n l y one l icensed to a n i ndependent i n st itution. KPLU is a major u niversity resou rce, keep­ i n g PLU i n public view and reflect i ng its qual ity academics and service." Since the regional move n i ne years ago, public support has i ncreased to the point where 77 percent of the station's budget is generated by KPLU apart from un iversity resources. Ch ristian hasn't yet moved a mountain. But he has been able to make one talk. For western Was h i n gt o n residen ts, if you haven't been able to get KPLU, or recep­ tion has been poor, tune in 88.5 or you r translator frequency now. You shou ld be in for a pl easant su rprise. *

Prof Becomes Intern Under Tutelage Of Former Student By Kathleen Hosfeld '81 n the back of my mind reside a n um ber of di ffe rent voices that provide com­ menta ry or suggestions a bout what I am doing at any given point in time. I hea r r.iY mother's voice, at certa i n times, su ggest i n g that I wou l d b e more thoughtful or less sel f-centered or that I shou l d eat more peas. M y fa ther's voice tells me to be more careful. to plan ahead and to eat more peas. The cast of cha racters in the back of my bra i n is comprised of people who've had a major i nfl uence on my life. Parents, pas­ tors and professors play the d o m i na nt roles. One of those characters - and I don't use that term loosely - is Cl iff Rowe, PLU Com m u nication Arts professor. Cliff's voice comments that my writi ng i s too pedantic, or that I w o u l d have checked the spe l l i ng of someone's na me. Thank God, at least h e doesn't tell m e to eat more peas. For the last seve ral weeks, h owever, he hasn't been sitt i ng i n the back of my head. He's been sitting at a desk down the hall from my office at Ogi l vy & Mather. I g rad uated from PLU i n 1981 with a what-ki nd-of-job-do-you-thi n k-you're-going­ to-get-with-that English degree. I beca me a journal ist. Cl iff's i n f l u ence exp l o ited m y existing i deal ist i c notion o f writi ng for a l iving. Need ing a new c h a l l enge, I joi ned Ogilvy & Mather as an account manager i n 1987. W e do pu b l ic relations a nd advertis­ ing. Some people would call me a liar for hire. It's not true. But people have their opinions. Although the real C l iff wou l d n 't have said so, the Cliff Voice in the back of my head chided that I was n o l onger serving the publ ic's right to know. That voice told me I was a r u n n i n g dog lackey c h u rn i ng out propaganda that helps l i ne the coffers of exploitative corporate m oguls. The real Cliff Rowe, however, has been sitting in the office down the hall, learn i ng about what ad vertisi ng a n d p u b l i c rela­ tions people really do. He recog nized that his 20-plus years of experience as a jou rnal­ ist l eft h i m less t h a n prepared to tra i n WOUld-be com m u nicators who want t o go into advertising, public relations or m arket­ i ng - and the n u m ber who do is i ncreas­ ing. It was last winter when Cl iff and I fi rst started tal king about an i nternship i n our office. Cliff's i nsatiable d es i re for profes­ sional growth is one of t h e t h i ngs that makes him a n outstand i ng teacher. Work­ ing with my bosses Andy Hopson and Jim McFarland to arra nge Cl iff's internship, I wanted to gi ve h i m an opport u n ity to grow, just as he did for me as a student. It was a lesson for both of us in teaching and learning. Teachers can't just tea ch; and students can't just lea rn.

In a world that changes as fast as ours does, we a l l need to be both teachers and students. We need to teach what we know; and keep learn ing what we don't. If I were to have a p l ace i n the back of Cl iff's m i nd as he does i n m i ne, or i n a ny­ one else's m i nd, I hope my voice would say keep you r eyes and ea rs a n d m i nd wide open; keep growing, keep lea r n i n g from everyone and everyt h i ng. And offer back as m uch as you receive. And I hope it would say "You don't have to eat you r peas if you don't want to."

cou ld see Kath lee n com i ng m y way, copy i n hand, a smi l e on her face, and I knew i mmediately I had done somet h i ng either very clever or very stupid. It was the latter. "This name is M-A-T-T-R-A-N, not M-O," ch uckle, c h uckle. There I was, i m pa led, squirming on a spelling error, and not just a spell i ng error, but an error i n a person's name, the kind of error that I th rust at students when I return their papers in a News Reporting class. "You just can't make t h ese kinds of errors," I tell them. "With every error l i ke this your credibility SUffers." Now, Kathleen was delighting in poi nting out that s h e had preserved what l ittle cred i b i l ity I sti l l had. I was pleased that she was delighted, despite having to swallow some ego. She was doing exactly what I would hope students out of Com m u nication Arts clas­ ses at PLU would be d o i ng - editing and writing with skill, precision, and, m ost of all, conviction. I trust most of them are doing that. and feedback from their employers usually confi rms it. But it has been rare that I've had a n opportu n ity to see for myself a graduate in the workplace over a period of time. That opport u n ity came this past s u m­ mer when I was a b le to work out an arrangement with Ogi lvy & MatherlWest. a major public relations agency in Seattle, to

Clifford Rowe be an observer i n t h e i r offices for fou r weeks. In effect, I was on a fou r-week i nternship. While I was there mostly to talk with peo­ ple a bout their jobs and h ow they got them and what they li ked and d i dn't l i ke about them, I also d i d some writ i ng and i nterviewing. We tel l our students they need to have internships l i ke this to find out what the workplace is really ·like a nd to determine whether a career i n any g i ven com m unica­ tions field is the one for them. I'd always assumed that this advice, l i ke the other advice we dispense at the drop of the sl ightest opportunity, is correct. It was a rel i ef to find out it is. This was a fa r different workplace than I had experienced i n 20 years of working for newspapers. I had expected that. Wou ld I be happy i n this busi ness, as opposed to the news busi ness that I l ove? I n some ways I WOUld. In other ways I'm not so sure , b u t at l east n ow I'm better a b l e to talk knowledgeably about it. I do know that by the time I left Ogilvy & Mather I was able to assure Kat hleen that if I had ever begrudged her leaving journal­ ism for public relations (a nd I don't think I rea lly di d), I no longer do. Much of what the people there d o, from top ma nagement on down, is exciting and innovative. The deadline pressures are d ifferent. but as demand i ng as those i n the news busi­ ness, and there are other demands i n deal- , ing with their cl ients - those third parties in the com m u nication process - with which journalists don't have to deal. Finally, I found as m uch satisfaction and sense of accomplishment a m ong this staff i n what it was achieving as I would find i n a newsroom . Kathleen i s right. Teachers have t o learn as wel l as teach, and Kathleen, as a former stu dent. proved to be a good teacher, too. And I wou ld never tel l her to eat her peas - u nless I were in public relations and my client was the National Pea-Harvest i ng Council. •

After 20 years of teac h i ng the­ ater a n d d i recti ng m a i nstage p roductions, professor W i l l iam Parker remembers the students above all. " By fa r, t h e st u d ents h a ve made my 2 0 years at P L U a rewa rd ing experience," Pa rker sa id. " T h e re have been so m e i m p ressi ve su ccess sto ries stu­ dents have shared with Parker and his fellow PLU theater d i rec­ tor W i l l i am Becva r. Stu de nts such as Patty Ben Peterson (who recently took over the l ead i n the B roadway h i t " I nto T h e Woods") provide a reaffi rm ation of the qual ity of PLU's theater department and the p rofessors who guide it" said School of the Arts Dean Richard Moe. Parke r tell s of a stud ent per­ fo rm i n g w i t h t h e A l a b a m a Sha kespea re Festival a n d o ne who is an assistant producer i n New York. S tudent Scott G reene received the Los Angel es Dra ma­ logue award fo r "most p rom is­ i ng d i rector. " Other students Parker remem­ bers I nclude the count less stu­ dent who a re bu i l d i ng ca reers in theater. as well as those who are pursu i n g oth er fields. " t is my goal to see students mature throug h an u ndersta nd­ ing of themselves, a responsi bili­ ty 0 others and respect for the i nd i vid u a l ity a nd worth of a l l people," Parker sa id. Teach i ng took on a n added dimen Sion recently when Parker decided to write a play. "When I searched wi t hi n myself to write my play. I found new avenues to explore with my stu dents . We l earned a lot together," Pa rker sa id. After seeing his work come to life and experiencing "the rligh­ est h i gh i m a g i nable in my 3 5 yea rs i n th eate r," Parker plans

to continue writing plays for the rest of his ca reer. His newest play u ndergirds his cont i n u i ng concern for students: it speaks of fa mily relationships i n t h e age of AIDS . "Even the most i ntel l i gent yo u n g person feels that he is i m m o rtal, that tragedy can not touch h i m . " I f my stu dents rea l i ze that what they do or do not do now may affect them for the rest of t h e i r l ives. that each person is responsible for not just his own behavior and health, but that of others. I wi" feel that my play is a su ccess - critics or not," Park­ er said . As J o h n i n "J ust As We A re" says, "We must wo rk together to save o u r c h i l d re n , a" o u r beautifu l children."

The State of the U n i versity, 1 9 89 : To Co m p lete a Centu ry Excerpts from an A ddress to Faculty and A dministrators at the Faculty Fall Conference, Sept. 8, 1989 .


oget h e r we envision o u r entry in to a new academic year. The months ahead consti­ tute the 1 00th of this i nst itu­ tion, the 30th of the u n iversity, and the 1 5th of this president. The 1 00th year of the institu­ tion! While the year beyond the one we now enter will be excit­ in g for its commem oration of the Centennial, the 1 989/90 year will have its own g reat exc ite­ ment and i m portance. The theme "To Comp lete a Century" is both an awesome ch allenge and a g reat opport u n i ty for those who care for, and labor in, th is institution as it writes "fi nis" to the tenth decade of its life. To c o m p l ete a cent u ry req ui res at least some deg ree of overall or com prehensive under­ sta nding about the present day Pacific Lutheran University from each of us. Perhaps that necessi­ ty will speak as compell ingly to you as it does to me if I share the fact that fu l ly 6 2 % of the cu rrent faculty and even more of the adm i n istrators, have joined the un iversity since I was appoi nted . These l a rge maj ori­ ties of relatively new faculty and admin istrators hel ped cau se, although they may be unawa re of it, im portant yea r to year g rowth and sign ificant accom­ plish ments. It is both im portant and useful to observe that. even in the yea r j u st past. many records were establ ished and oth er existing ones were sur­ passed.

majority of fou r-year post-sec­ ondary sc hools in o u r state which can claim none at all. The records of academic ga in by facu lty cont i n u e w ith books and articles p u b l ished, gran ts and contracts won, conferences attended, and papers presented. The School of Physical Education won approva l for the g ranting of th ree separate baccalaureate deg rees and produced its fi rst graduates. Also, Physical Educa­ tion provided opportu n ities for 20% of the u n iversity's fu l l-time enrol lm ent i n 22 women's and men's varsity sports. There were 62 student ath letes with a g.p.a. of 3.5 or better, and 20 Academic All Americans who hel ped win the fo u rth strai ght conference al l-sports trophy, two national c h a m p i o n s h i ps , a n d , a m o n g more than 500 NAIA schools, the second consecutive national All Sports title. In late June PLU was notified officia l ly that u n ivers ity-wi d e accred itati on had been reaf­ fi rmed by the Comm ission on Colleges of the Northwest Asso. ciation of Schools and Colleges. No strings, no qualifications, no caveats - simply reaffi rmation of accre d i tation by the one extern al body most i m p ortant to the u n iversity's recog n ition and fu nction. Two other im portant acc red i­ tation decisions were an nou nced t h i s sum mer: 1 ) programs i n music have been elevated from associate to fu ll membership i n t h e National Assoc iation of Schools of M u s ic; a n d 2) the bachelor of science program i n computer science won fi rst-time approval as one of only 80 such prog ra ms n a t i o n a l l y to be

fi nd i ngs of the u n i ve rsi ty's external fi nancial auditors, on a $43,281 ,366 budget. the univer­ sity fi nished $5,900 or 0.01 % in the black. It is not so much what is earned that determi nes fi nan­ cial outcomes - PLU receives nearly 60% more i ncome than it did five years ago - rather it's what is spent that matters. Beca use the u n i versity has grown and flou rished ra pidly in many areas, i ncluding financially, the challenge of the futu re is to ch oose wisely and selectively a m o n g the m a n y w i n s o m e opportun ities that are ou rs. Nei­ ther we nor any other organiza­ tion can invest fully in all paths simultaneously. The heady scent of past prog ram matic, numeri­ ca l. fisca l and physical accom­ plishment lu res, even compe ls, us to the m istaken indu lgence of all desi res concomitantly. O u rs is the responsi b i l ity to prioritize and selectively develop th ose p rograms which wil l guara ntee our future success. This we can, must, and will do. Money matters a re never com­ pletely discharged until we also speak of g ifts given a n d funds raised. F u l ly $1 m i ll ion more in cash was received this last year than in the year before. The total from all sou rces and for all purposes am ou nted to $ 5 . 7 m i l­ li on, representing a strong 21 % growth rate - a rate more than twice the growth rate of tuition in 1 988/89. Excluded were pledg­ es made, w i l l s wr itte n , and deferred gifts prom ised.

Funding and erecting the new music building remains the major object ive on the ca pital side of the d rive, and prog ress toward it acc elerates monthly. A few comments now about annual reports which I conti nue to a p p reci ate read i ng from a l l organ izational u n its in the u n i­ versity. I have previously alluded to the academic productiv ity t h ose from the schools, d ivi­ sions, and various programs doc­ um ent. There has been no previ­ ous year in my reading when records have been stronger or accompl ish ments mo re varied. Among those providing a sign ifi· cant and different contri bution is the Fa m i ly and Children's Cen­ ter where 1 65 students worked for academic credit in eight dif­ ferent programs and simu lta­ neously delivered social and edu­ cati o n a l service to 981 P a rklandlSpanaway fam i l ies. So much has occu rred that some academic departments note the strain. One chair even speaks of exhaustion, and proclaims that the exhaustion cannot continue. The very next sentence of the report, however, stresses equ ally that the future has never looked brighter. So it is with the general tone of all reports - prog ress is g reat. effort is exte nsive and demanding, but comm itment to subsequent en deavor is the g reatest. T h i s e n co u ra g i n g theme i s parall eled by re ports from admin istrative a reas where p rog ress and reco m m itment are a lso the overriding themes. J ust a few specifics may be of i nter­ est. Food Service reports the best year ever; the Bookstore enhanced sales, its gross margi n, and continued to exceed nation­ a l averages i n its p roductiv ity per square foot of space occu­ p ied. Of great im portance in this day of i ncreasing ap preh ension about cri me, vi olence, and per­ sonal safety, are the facts that Cam pus Safety has added the fo u rth profess i o n a l , i s better staffed than ever, and experi­ enced a ten-year low in the num­ ber of camp u s cri mes wh ich were re porta ble to the Pierce

cou nty Sheriff last year. The safety issue, h owever, is one that demands eternal vigilance, and it will be so treated in the year ahead . To com p lete a century, and to erve in that or so me other fash­ ion in the futu re, req u i res us now to turn to a report on the fourth and - mathematical log­ ic not withstand ing - final year of the cu rre nt u n iversity F ive­ Yea r Plan. Prepa rati on of the plan involved the ent i re un iversi­ ty in an effort to determ ine and chart its futu re; that exercise a lone has more than suffici ent redeem ing value for the plan. A su rprisingly large n u m ber of the specific objectives with i n its five major priorities have, in fact, been atta ined. M ost i m portant­ ly, the u n iversity has rem ai n ed and prospered as a small l i beral a rts i nstitution of the church ( Priority I), and it will continue to do so. E n ro l l ment goals, fiscal priorities, severa l capital pro­ j ects, e d u ca t i o n a l e n h a n ce­ ments, com m u n ity outreach, a n d o t h e r obj ect i ves were reached a n d exceeded . O ne maj o r a cco m p l ishm ent which was faci l itated by previous p lan­ n ing, but not specifically envi­ sioned i n the cu rrent fi ve-year o bject i ves, is the ra p i d and extensive growth of the u niver­ sity's Comp uter Center, includ­ i n g present i n itiati ves to i n co r­ porate co mputing broadly i nto the curriculum. M ost s i g n ificant p e r h a ps amon g five-yea r goals was the accomplishment in four years of the five-yea r intent (Priority II, 5) . to enha nce average total com­ pensation by an amount at least 1 5 % in excess of the cumulative i ncrease over t ime i n the Con­ sumer Price In dex. All will appre­ ciate that since sala ries and fringes annually amou nt to the largest sin gle university expendi­ ture - about 60% of the total budget - they are the hardest to improve overall. Yet the goal has been reached one year early, and every effort will be made to carry o n enha ncement in the futu re. Also of significant note, and expense, was not j ust the com­ pletion of most of the specific capital projects identified in Pri­ ority IV, but also adding to this p rio rity the a n n u a l extensive renovation of at least one resi­ dence h a l l . Pfl ueger, Foss, and, as of t h i s s u m mer, H i nderlie H a l l s h a v e now been so i m proved . I ndeed, the sum mer of 1 989 wit nessed renovat ion and repai r in mu ltiple academic, administrative, student, and ser­ vice b u i l d i n gs. Of various bu il d­ i ngs acq u i red, one fi ne example is the Rosso House which now provid es the head quarters for graduate and continuing educa. tion. Now it is time to prepare the next chart for o u r fu t u re. Althou gh a variety of elements of the 1 98 5/86 five-year map

Whatever my feeli ngs about the specific value of the content of any plan may be, there i s no denying that great gain is to be realized from the process of t h i nking, d iscussing, and working together toward t h e goa l s of t o m orrow.

L the refore, officially invite faculty and admin i strators to consider methods and join the process. University officers have already been charged and students will soon be i nvited so that as a total commu nity we may look to the next five-year cycle. The writing of a new Five-Year Plan w i l l engage us meaningfu l ly as we com p lete a cent u ry in 1 989/90, but so, too, w i l l several specific en deavors. The faculty mandated study of the universi­ . ty's general education req u i re­ ments - core revision, if you w i l l - merits the attention of us all. Viewed by its external constitu­ ents, PLU now clearly 1s a presti­ gious institution. Yet, costs and com petition being what they are, questions always arise con­ cerning why is the university better than cheaper priced alter­ natives, or how is it really worth the i nvestment of student and fa m i ly dollars? More this yea r ••

Gifts from all sources amounted to 55. 7 mil­ lion, a 2 1 % in crease over the previous year and more than twice the growth rate of tuition costs_ H than previously, these queries were voiced d u ring the annual August meetings i n ni ne North­ west cities which Mrs. Rieke and I hold with parents, and new and prospective stude nts. By d i rect perso nal interaction with more than 600 such persons, i ncluding over 1 00 incoming fres h m en, I was persuaded that the un iversi­ ty's constituents accept the fact that PLU has excellence, but as never previously, they want evi­ dence that experiences here are d ist inctive, a n d have sufficient value for life that they merit the req u i site expense and financial comm itment. These concerns a re not surprisi ng, because the severa l increases in recent years of the cost of attending almost all private postsecondary educa­ t i o n a l i n st itutions have out­ stripped not just the growth in the Consu mer Price I ndex, but more im porta ntly, the agg re­ gate i n c rease i n tot a l fa m i ly in come.

tin ues over time, people under­ standably need reason to believe mon ies spent on education are wisely used . While a new, excit­ i n g , a n d effective p l a n of req u i red study at PLU - be it a revision of Core L Core II, or both - is not the tota l answer to i ncreasingly sophisticated and aware consumers, it can be one very important element of the response. More than th at, the u n i versity needs a ret h i n k ing and res h a p i n g of its general requirements Simply to be true to its own i n tegrity and sense of ed ucati onal mission, deserv ing our close attention and best effort. The penulti mate specific topic I mention as we begin to com­ plete a century is the b ranch ca m p u s of the U n i versity of Washington in Tacoma. Through much state legi slative ma neu­ vering and u ncertai nty about which I reported periodically last year, the com m itment to estab­ l ish branch campuses of the Uni­ versity of Washington i n Bothell and Tacoma, and of Washi ngton State University in Spokane, the Tri-Cities, and Vancouver eventu­ ally was made. With regard to the branch in Tacoma, the selection of a site will occu r this year, some faculty will be recruited, and a few score of t h i rd and fou rth yea r st u­ dents following a baccalau reate program i n general studies w i l l b e adm itted for work starting one year from now. The i ntent both of the legislature and the Un iversity of Washi ngton is slow­ ly to develop e n ro l l m e nt of up per d ivision primari ly non-tra­ d i tional, pa rt-time stu d ents to ni ght and weekend classes, and to add more cou rses of st u dy only as need can be shown. The legislature has ordered a st udy of exist i n g educati o n a l capacity in both state and pri- · vate schools. PLU is actively par­ ticipating i n th is, ' and the f i nd­ ings will be reviewed in the 1 990 legislative sessi on. I believe PLU ca n and should remain confident a n d u n t h reatened by the branch. More i m portant by far than my opin ion, however, is the

varied career at the U of W, Uni­ versity of Iowa, and U niversity of Kansas medica l centers as wel l as PLU. The award was established to recognize a l u m n i who by their professional ach ievements and contri butions have disti ngu ished themselves, enhanced thei r pro­ feSSion, improved the welfare of the general public and brou ght honor to their alma mater. The award refl ects cont ributions made over a long period of ime.

fact that because of the consid· erable effort invested in the last two years, we are firmly in a position not only to monitor but to correct any shifts in ma rket share of students in the unlikely event they occur as the branch develops. Fift h, l ast, and most happi ly, we will spend the year complet­ i n g ou r centu ry by ed ucati ng another excel lent group of stu­ dents. While demographic limita­ tions w i l l decrease the n u m ber of freshmen who matricu late, the class will exceed 600 and will be larger than the one we were pleased to admit j ust four years ago. Moreover, the n u m ber of transfer st udents re mains high and retention of continuing stu­ dents s i m i l arly cli ngs to record levels. In total, headcount and hours will again be very strong, and this i s without acceedi ng to the very rea l pressure to increase international stu dents d ramati­ cally. Residence halls will be full, and planning for a new hal l for the fa l l of 1 9 91 conti n ues.

Alma M ater

Gift, I ncome,

By Dr. Philip Nordquist centennial Historian

Du ri ng its nea rly one hu ndred years of h istory, the students and a l u m n i of Pacific Lutheran University have sung a nu mber of co l l ege h y m n s and fight songs. They all reflect the times when the y were written a n d most reek with considerable sen­ timent. Most have also had a very short shelf- l ife; one has been bu ried i n the A rch ives since the early twentieth ce ntu­ ry. I fou d five such songs while conducting research for the cen­ tennial history. All can be found in the U n i v ersity A rc h i ves, though the mu sic fo r two has d isappea red . Only one of the songs, the 1 944 "College Hymn" co m posed by Ju leen H . Mattern, is re g u l a rly s u ng . " Re g u l a rly" here means once a year, usual l y at Homecoming. Most mem bers of the Alumni Association could not pass a written test on the words or music, however. The first of the songs - "Our Alma Mater" - dates back to 1 902 and must have been sung at comme ncernent. Its th emes are the "fond memories" and "true friendsh ips" fou n d at the "P.LA" There is no mu sic to be found and the song was appar­ ently quickly forgotte n. The next song - "The A l m a Mater Song" - has had a longer life. Com posed by Choir of the West di rector J. O. Edwards i n 1 9 27 i t can sometimes sti l l be heard.

Sc hn acken berg, converted it i nto, "P LC, O u r Students H a i l Thee a s Queen of a l l the Land!" Both words and mu sic are avail­ able in the Archives. T h e sem i- offi c i a l "Co l l e ge Hymn" was written by J u leen H . Mattern i n 1 944. Schnackenberg ca l led it a hymn of "dign ified solemn ity" and Mattern dedicat­ ed it "with best wishes to Pacific Lutheran Col l ege, 'The Pioneer School'." It is not at all clear how it became "semi-officiaL" but it has acquired that kind of status, perhaps through longevity. The fou rth song - "The Glad Refrain" - was written by Wai­ ter Sc h n acke n b e rg h i m s elf, probably i n 1 95 5 . H e was i nter­ ested in a song with a little more oomph that was more widely known, so he o rg a n i zed a con­ test wh ere stu dents were to contri bute either the words or the tune and connect to either the words or the tune he creat­ ed. The read e r senses that I d o n 't have t h i s a b sol utely straight; neither can I remember the stu d ent w i n n e r and the tune is lost. I remember the bass part and my wife claims she can hum the tune. The words a re written in pencil on a 3" X 5" card which is in my possess ion. Readers will re mem ber that P. L.Cs teams were called Gladia­ tors in 1 9 55, hence the title. The fi nal song - "PLU V ictory Song" - was written in 1 988 by

This defi n itely 15 a "win-Win" situ at ion. In the last few months there have been n u m e rou s instances where donors to PLU have made a contri b ut ion t h rough a l i fe i ncome program . In d o i n g 50, they wi l l be receiving an income for l ife, a d, at the same ti me, receiving si gnificant tax savings as wel l . I n ad d ition, thei r heirs will not be losin g any of the asset value The q u estion m y be asked, but i they give the asset away, how can they pass the value of that asset on to their heirs? Answer: through i nsu rance. And how does one pay for the insu r­ ance? Answer: th rough the dol· lars saved from the ch aritable contribut io n ded u cti on, as well as through possible i ncreased income from the asset. The use of a "wealth replace­ ment trust," funded with insur­ ance, i s a method by which many people are able to make a sign ificant gi ft to P U , recei ve l ifetime i ncome, and st i l l have the abil ity to pass the value of an asset on to their heirs.

KUpp Aerials Key TO 35-1 9 Defeat Of Loggers By Mike Larson

PLU used its patented Big Play in a big way i n its 1 989 season­ opener agai nst cross-town riva l Puget Sound Sept. 1 4, t u r n i ng back the Loggers 35-1 9 in the An n u a l Lu tes/Logg ers Tacoma Dome Duel. Coach Frosty Westering's 1 0th­ ranked Lutes converted two Log­ ger fum bles i nto scores, used a brillia nt aerial attack, and made the big defensive plays to claim their fifth Tacoma Dome victory in the seven-yea r history of the series. PLU wasted l ittle time. In fact, any of the 7,425 fans in atten­ da n ce who s h owed up m o re than 1 5 m i n utes late m issed half of PLU's fi rst-h a lf sco ring. With 9:36 to play i n the fi rst quarter, ' PLU a l rea dy enj oyed a 1 4-0 advantage, scoring on a 34-yard pass play from sen i o r q u a rter­ back Craig Ku p p t o se n i o r end John G radwo h l and a 1 4-ya rd ·ru n by j u n Io r fu l l b ack C h ri s Havel. Kupp hooked u p with j u n ior end M i ke Wel k on a 48-yard scor­ i ng bomb on the fi rst of the second quarter to ca p a seven­ play, 84-yard d rive, then rushed for a touchdown from 18 yards out to make it 28-7. Kupp's rush was set up after j u n ior l i neback­ er Bruce Sch m idt fel l on a fum­ ble deep in Logger territory. "We executed very wel l, partic­ u l a rly o u r pass i n g ga me," said Westering on the season-open­ i ng win, PLU's 1 7th in the last 20 seasons. "Ou r two ends, G rad­ wohl and (Mike) Welk were just outstanding and our blocking u p front gave Ku p p the t i m e he needed ."

PLU fans love their Lutes!

Indeed . Kupp was magn ificent, completing his fi rst nine passes and fi n i shing 1 8-for-22 for 203 ya rds and th ree TDs. The 6-4, 2 1 5-po u n d K u p p a l so h a d 2 9 ya rds rus h i ng, i n c l u d i n g his 1 8yard scoring scramble. The Lutes' final score was the resu lt of PLU's most sustai ned d rive of the even i ng, a 66-yard m a rch in 1 1 p l ays t h a t con­ sumed nea rly six min utes. Havel did most of the work, carrying

five t i m es for 42 ya rds. K u p p found Welk a l l a lone i n t h e end­ zone from 14 yards out with 30 seconds to p l a y in t h e t h i rd quarter to make it 3 5-1 3 and the rout was on. Lute d efensive coord i nator Pau l Hoseth applauded the PLU's defensive effort. "Genera l ly, it was a good performa nce," he said. "We had a few breakdowns, but overa ll, we had good p u rsuit and good h itting."

The Lutes' 1 989 home sched­ u le is the best in years, includ i ng dates with O regon Tech (Sept. 30), Central Washi ngton (Oct. 7, 1 : 30), Li nfield (Oct. 2 1 , 1 : 30) and Western Washi ngton (Oct. 28, 1 : 30). PLU's h o m e g a m e s a re played at Carl Spa rks Stad i u m in Puya l l u p. All of the Lutes' games can be hea rd l ive on KJ UN-AM 1 450 with J ohn Lynch ca l l i ng the play-by-play.

Book-end TEs M i ke Welk (j r., 6-0, 205) and John G radwoh l (j r., 6-0, 1 97) a re both qual ity r-eceiv­ ers. Welk snared a schoo l- record 62 passes as a freshma n and 29 last season .

Westeri ng's Big Ti me Ph i losophy Topic Of Book The Big Time. For m a ny people, the p h rase conjures up th i ngs like name rec­ ognition, big bucks, celebrity sta­ tus. PLU's Frosty Westering ki nd­ ly d i sagrees and h e's written a book to explain why. Make The Big Time Where You Are, written last winter d u ri n g a

three-month sabbatical, puts on paper m a ny of the ideals that Westeri ng has taught and prac­ ticed. "The Big Time is not a place, it's a state of you r heart," he said. "The Big T i m e isn't som ething you get, it's some­ thing you become," he said. Weste ri ng, the w i n n i n gest active NAIA Division II coach i n the nation and a ful l professor with a d octorate i n ed u cation, said the book is written in a con­ versa ional style, accented with stones and a necdotes from h i s 24-year coaching career. "The writing part is finished," said Westering. "They (the pub­ l ishers) are editing a few chap­ ters and working on the g raph­ ics."

VOLLEYBALL - Coach M a rcene Sul livan's Lady Lutes now know what it takes . . . After struggling through 1 0, 1 0, and 1 1 -win seasons for th ree years, PLU made all the puzzle pieces fit i n last year's 2 3-1 7 campaign and a re ready in 1 989 to prove it wasn't a fl u ke . . .

It's even more d ifficult when you graduate half you r team, but that's the task that faces B rad Moo re's 1 989 off-road contingent as they lose six of their top ten runners from last year's squad that was eighth at nationals . . . Senior Ken Gard ner is the one top-six retu rnee, but will get su pport from returnees Kirk Helzer, Alan H err, Mike Lindaas, Marty Gibson, and Matt Knox . . . Pepperdine transfer Jeff Perry and Tim Borsheim will factor i nto the scheme of things right away. WOMEN"S SOCCER - It m ight be unfai r to expect back-to-back national championships, but if you're i nto wageri ng, bet the barn that PLU's success story will conti nue in 1 989 . . .

A variety of factors plucked seven retu rnees, but a sol i d - yet u ntested - corps of developmental players a re back and a blue-chip crop of fresh � an. . . . Senior Mike Caldwell and newcomer Vidar Plaszko head the m idfield troops, while Jim Tem ple anchors the defense . . . C h ris Steffy, who registered 1 0 shutouts last year, is a dandy keeper.

WOMEN"S CROSS COUNTRY - It's been a decade of domi nance at the d i strict, a rea a n d national levels for coach B rad Moore's harriers and the 1 989 season appears no different than the fi rst n i ne of the 1 980s . . . Defending NAIA champion PLU will be led by a pair of returning All-Americans, jun iors Kelly Edgerton and Gwen Hund ley, and a strong supporting cast . . . Also keep an eye on senior M a ry Lewis, sophs Shannon Smi ley and Deird re M u rnane, and j u nior Karen Tuvey . . . freshmen Casi M ontoya and twins Ki rstena and Gretchen Sm ith bolster Moore's 1 989 squad, along with Green R iver CC transfer Kelly Hewitt.

President's Message On the following pages the annual chron­ icle of people and funds supporting Pacific Lutheran University during the 1988/89 year is presented. The president's message provides a special opportunity both to express gratitude to the ever growing number of individuals, firms, and organizations that assist the univer­ sity and to lift up those things which seem most significant as meriting such support during the year past. How grateful I truly am to the record number of people and groups for the largest ever gifts to Pacific Lutheran University during 1988/89! If one con­ siders only cash actually received (not including gift pledges, annuities, trusts or other deferred gifts), more than $5 million came to the university last year. To be sure, that sum represents contri­ butions from donors of aU types and given for every kind of purpose, but it reflects a magnificent milestone in the history of PLU. Most importantly, such gifts come from people who believe that the kind of education offered at PLU is worthy of support. This is certainly a most compelling reason to be grateful. Because of such strong support the university was able to continue to pursue and strengthen its commitment to quality education. For example, a record number of three (more than any other northwest college or university) Fulbright Scholars were named during the last year. In addition, PLU graduates attained top state or national honors in mathematics, engineering, accounting, journalism, athletics, and other fields. Also record setting was the fact that a PLU alumna (Elizabeth Pulliam, '85) became the first graduate to receive a Pulitzer Prize. To such singular accomplishments must be added the facts that credit hour produc­ tivity for the year topped all previous levels, and the number of baccalaureate and masters' degrees awarded came close to one thousand total. Certainly the support of investors produced great gain during 1988/89.

Investors need to know that, while the university became stronger, set new records, and was more productive last year, it also remained entirely faithful to its mission. It is of paramount importance to me that as the univer­ sity grows and advances, the connec­ tion to its heritage and the under­ standing of its central purpose are retained. For this reason I am especially gratified to report to those who have invested in PLU the past year that the mission of the university - as judged by those charged with the responsibility of assessing it is alive and well. Specifically, during 1988/89 the university underwent its decennial evaluation for institution wide re-affirmation of accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the North­ west Association of Schools and Colleges. In addition to resulting in complete re-accreditation, this study provided the following comments by external evaluators on the university's sense of mission: ''Pacific Lutheran University is clear, consistent, and realistic in its state­ ment of mission and objectives. Efforts to make the institutional mission and objectives operative in the day-to-day life of the campus are evident and admirable." With the mission of PLU recognized and commended in this manner, I am greatly encouraged and emboldened for the future. Clearly the investments made serve a productive and meaningful purpose. Heartiest thanks to our investors for their great assistance and partnership in 1988/89.


Pliny the Younger, the Roman writer and statesman who lived from circa 62 to 113 A.D. was the first chtdJenge gift donor on record. At least so the story goes . . . 'CJ>iscwering that the children in his native town of Como had to go to school in Milan because Como had no teacherfor them, Pliny put up a third of the expenses of hiring an instructor, encouraging his felloW townsmen to raise the rest. "

This booklet is largely a listing of names. Names of persons, organizations and foundations who, like Pliny, have set the pace by their leadership. Because of these generous people many students were able to attend Pacific Lutheran University through scholarship awards; faculty and staff salaries were enhanced; special programs were made possible and building and grounds were improved.




This year, the last in PLU's first century, the University broke the $5 million mark in gifts received. Named in this Report to Investors, are individuals, churches, corporations, and foundations who con足 tributed an all-time record $5,1 34,891.32 during the 88/89 fiscal year. In addition to this gift figure PLU received grants and contracts totaling $572,595.61.

Because of the leadership and example of many alumni and friends, more donors than ever contributed to the Annual Fund. For example, a year ago there were 2642 alumni donors to the Annual Fund, this year 4197 alumni contributed. The increases have been more than just noteworthy - even something to celebrate. Gifts from all sources this year totaled 18% more than last year and 47% more than two years ago. And so we celebrate. We celebrate the leadership and example of friends and alumni. We celebrate . . . yesterday with our founders who gave us our roots . . . today with our regents, faculty, students and alumni who infuse us with life and vitality . . . tomorrow with the friends of the University who dare to make our dreams become a reality.

It is those friends and alumni who are shaping tomorrow. Through their leader足 ship and generosity, they have made the Sharing in Strength campaign, the first phase of a decade-long funding effort, a success. They will also now ensure the second phase of the centennial campaign, Shaping Tomorrow. The goal for the first half of the decade was $16,500, 000. It was over subscribed with $20,000, 000 coming through Sharing in Strength. Those funds built the Rieke Science Center, doubled the endowment, provided scholarships and completed many capital improvements on the campus. In the second half of this decade the Centennial Fund - Shaping Tomorrow, will build the Music/Fine Arts Center, double the endowment again, provide increased help to underwrite tuition and provide funds for other capital improve足 ments. The challenging goal for the current campaign is $30,000, 000.

It promises to be a centennial decade of $50,000,000 in gifts for the education of a new generation. A great host of people who believe in the value of Pacific Lutheran University and its mission will help us meet the challenge of this exciting century celebration. Sincerely,

Luther W. Bekemeier

Vice President for Development

TheAnnual Fund Gifts to the University' s Annual Fund provide vital support to every area of the instit tion. Scholarships, fac ulty salaries, library resources, and facilities maintenance represent some f the more significant areas where Annual Fund gifts are put to use. This support provides the "margin of excellence" that helps set Paci.£ic Lutheran University apart. Taken together with other income sources, Annual Fund gifts subsidize the cost of education by approxi ­ mately $600 a year for each student who attends the University. The positi ve impact of Annual Fund support is felt by students in three key areas:


Gifts to the Annual Fund provide scholarships to help attract and retain top notch students. Seven out of ten PLU students both eed and receive financial assistance.

Outstanding Faculty

A strong Annual Fund helps assure tha t faculty salaries remain competi­ tive. PLU has been fo rtunate to attract and retain highly qualified fac ulty who are dedicated to teaching.

Library Resources

Nearly $600,000 was spent last year to keep the Mortvedt Li b rary collection abreast of growing curriculum and research demands. Annual Fund gifts play a key role here as well .

As a consequence of strong Annual Fund support, the University is able to strengthen its academic programs, enhance scholarships and financial aid, and operate with a balanced budget. While many of the gifts to the Annual Fund are mall, as the llumber of th�se gifts increase , the part icipation of many alumni and friends makes a positive impression on other potential supporters of the University. But small gifts alone cannot d the job. The University has encouraged a tradi ­ tion of substantial giving through a special donor organization k nown as the PLU Q Club. Donors qualify for member­ ship when their u nrestricted a nd/or scholarship gifts to the Annual Fund reach $240 or more per year.

The PLU Q Club The Q Club was started in 1 972 to thank friends and alumni of Pacific Lutheran University who gave vitally needed unrestricted gifts to the, University's Annual Fund. These gifts help secure PLU's commitment to Quality education. The "Q" stands for quality. Q Club gifts - help underwrite the cost of education for each student - provide scholarships and financial aid to needy students - allow the UniverSity to maintain a balanced budget without sacrificing quality. To help accomplish these goals, members commit themselves to a specific amount of support each year. There are four primary giving levels: Member $240/year Associate Fellow $480/year Fellow $l,OOO/year Senior Fellow $2,4oo/year

$20/month $40/month $84/month $200/ month

NOTE: Alumni and friends age 26 and under may join the Q Club as Junior Members for $120/year or $lO/month.

The Q Club began with 100 members who contributed $51,000 in 1 972. Today, there are over 1775 members who gave over $840,000 to the University during the past fiscal year.

University has affected my life in a very p* found way. I had a chana to question the things I was raised to believe, and wound up naffirming those beliefs from the penpective ofa newly found intellectual maturity. At PLU one finds diversity, a caring and warm environment, a rmtalized wmmit颅 ment to Christianity, and excellmt acadnnic standards. ))

As a University of the Church, Pacific Lutheran University is owned by the 630 churches of Region I of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (congrega­ tions in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington). Many of those congre­ gations, out of particular commitment to their mission in higher education, choose to support the University program directly each year. These gifts come to the University in a variety of ways. Unrestricted gifts and scholarship support for the University's Annual Fund are recognized through congregational membership in the various levels of the PLU Q Club. This money helps undergird the annual mission of the University by subsidizing each student's education and assisting in general operations. $2,400 or more a year

Many congregations elect to give for the benefit of particular students. Gifts to the Pacific Lutheran University Match­ ing Scholarships program (PLUMS) generate matching contributions for young people from contributing congre­ gations. Funds for the support of Lutheran students from the developing African country of Namibia are directed towards the Namibian Student Scholarship Fund. Through these growing designated and undesignated gifts, congregations play a significant role in annual support of the University and scholarships for individual students.

Businesses and Foundations Annual support from the business community and from foundations comes to the University in a variety of ways. Unrestricted gifts and scholarship support for the University's Annual Fund are recognized through member­ ship in the various levels of the PLU Q Club. This money undergirds current operations and helps subsidize the cost of education for each student. Gifts, restricted for specific purposes, are also received from many corporate and foundation sources. These gifts are often targeted to enhance particular areas of the University which are closely related to the priorities of the donor. Corporate and foundation support plays a vital role in meeting the capital and endowment objectives of the University as well. These gifts help fund capital construction projects, provide for the purchase of significant capital equip­ ment needs, and add to the University's endowment. The construction of a new

"The growing generosity of Pacific Lutheran University alumni represents a tremendous witness to major donors and foundations about the true value ofyour PLU education. )) This past year I had the opportunity to share my thoughts with you about the kind of impression which schools like PLU make on their alumni. I want to thank you for the overwhelming response that you made to that appeal. The number of alumni who contributed to the University's Annual Fund increased nearly 59% during this past fiscal year. There were 4,195 Alumni Annual Fund donors in 1 988/89 versus 2,642 in 1987/88. As a result of that increase, PLU's percentage of alumni giving rose from 16% to 23% in a single year. That kind of growth is simply unpreceden ted. One of the strongest gains came from alumni who made their first gift to the University this year. I want to thank those donors for the vote of confidence that their support signifies and welcome them to the growing ranks of alumni donors listed in this report. Your generosity allows the University to provide vitally needed scholarship support for students. It also strengthens our ability to attract and retain quality faculty who are at the heart of the educa­ tional enterprise. Other gifts provide funds to buy books for the library and other important learning resources.

Taken together, your gifts to the Annual Fund underwrite the educational mission of the University in a tangible way that makes a positive difference in the lives of everyone at the school.

As the University approaches its Centennial in 1990/91, the growing level of alumni support during the past year offers the promise of even greater things to come. Sincerely,

� c 7?� David C. Wold,

Chainnan, PLU Board of Regents

When students talk about Pacific Lutheran Univenity, there are many themes, but three are oft-repeated: , * Academic quality and creativity, rejkaed in a wealth ofnationally­ recognized aauiemic hotwrs;


An atmosphere of friendliness and genuine personal concern

fur students;

and * A commitment to Christian principles.


Alumni Annual Fund Honor Rnll ofDonors by Class Annual Fund gifts from Pacific Lutheran University alumni undergird and enhance the quality of the educational programs which the University offers. These contri­ butions help with everything from scholar­ ships to faculty salaries and library books to athletics. This past fiscal year produced the largest single year increase in both the number and percentage of alumni giving in the University's history. The number of Alumni Annual Fund Donors grew from . 2,642 to 4,195 - an increase of nearly 59%. The percentage of alumni giving also increased from 16.1 to 23.1 - a jump of over 43%. This special Honor Roll of Donors recognizes the many alumni who have made this a record-breaking year for the Alumni Annual Fund.

The number or percentage of alumni who regularly give to the University is important because it is considered by many major donors and foundations as a key "barometer" of support from those who k now us best. In this case, the total dollar amount contributed is not as important as the fact that a large number of alumni make some kind of gift each year. One of the goals of the PLU Alumni Association is to steadily increase the number of alumni who give to the Annual Fund. We would like to reach a participation rate of at least 25% by the University's centennial in 1990/91.

Although the number of alumni contributors is an important factor in influencing others, clearly the dollar total given by alumni is what helps today's students. Over the years, alumni who are able to make contributions at or above the Q Club level of $240 a year have accounted for around 75% of all alumni giving. The following lists recognize Alumni Annual Fund Donors by class for gifts received between June 1, 1988 and May 31, 1989. Where two alumni are married, the asterick (*) indicates that their gifts have been split between their respective classes. A "Q" in front of a name indicates that the individual is a current member of the PLU Q Club.

The Heritage Society The purposes of the Heritage Society are:

Members of the Heritage Society are those individuals who have included Pacific Lutheran University in some type of deferred gift, bequest, charitable trust, revocable trust, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, pooled income fund agreement, or a gift of a residence or farm with a retained life estate.

- To show gratitude and recognition to those who have expressed concern for PLU by providing for a deferred gift. - To assist members of the Society i n their on-going estate planning. - To encourage others to become members of the Society.

Membership is not based on the amount of the deferred gift. The sole criterion is the remembrance of Pacific Lutheran University in one's estate planning.

In conjunction with Edgerton's add ress, they i ntend to publ ish a collection of short essays written by PlU a l u m n i , stude nts and faculty as well as i nterested com m u ni­ ty members, that reflects on the lea rning of values at PlU.

Edgerton u rges w riters to " reflect on the ideals that PLU holds u p t o i t s students, and n o t o n ly t h e ideals consciously upheld , but the ideals i m pl icit in the way the faculty and others i n the PlU com munity live and work." More particu larly, Edgerton asks essay­ ists to consider: * Not only what the faculty do but what facu lty are. Kenneth Eble has written of the u rgent need for students to encou n­ ter not merely men and women of special­ ized com petence, but men and women of character. Do PLU stu dents see facu lty outside the classroom? Do they know what other roles faculty play? For exam ple, fac­ u lty who value com m u n ity and public ser­ vice wou ld do well to share their own com­ m u n ity and public service l ives with their students. * H ow the scientific method that u nder­ p i ns most of o u r acad e m i c l ife d etached, a n a lytical, objectivist, etc. itself shapes the values of o u r students. Are there other m ethods of knowing that students should a lso lea r n to val u e? If socia l scientists "model" o n ly detached, social criticism, where will students lea rn the va lues of affirmation a n d p a rtici pa­ tion? * The va lues-shaping effects, not only of what we teach (a topic that gets an inord i­ nate amou nt of attention), but how we teach. For how we teach is what we teach. Some have poi nted out, for example, that while we "preach" cooperation, our meth­ ods of i nstructing and grading, fac u lty eva luation, etc., "model" the i m portance

Editor's note. Ch ristian L ucky, one of PL U's 1989 Fulbrigh t Scholars, was studying in West Berlin when the Berlin Wall was opened Nov. 9. During those first heady days he stayed up virtually around the clock, soaking up history in the making and sharing his expertise with Puget Sound area media. The following are his reflections on the momen tous event.

By Christian LUCky '89


t the end of the Fi rst World War, many p eo p l e l o o k ed w i t h a n t i c i p a t i o n toward the poss i b i l ity of a peaceful a n d open E u rope. This vision was partially real­ ized d u r i n g the 1 920's. Cit ies such as Pra g u e and Berl i n reveled in thei r n ew democratic freedom and became centers of modern culture, seldom si nce rivaled. But, after the terror and i n h u man ity of the Second World War, and the di shonesty and di vision of the Cold War, the idea of peace and open ness has been more of a bi tte r j oke to the citizens of Berl i n a nd Prague than an actual possi bil ity - u ntil a few weeks ago. Revol utions usually ha ve at l east two thi ngs in com mon: vi olence and ideology. While l iving in Berli n these last few months and watch i n g the tremendous cha nges that are ta king p lace, most st riking to me has been the absence of both violence and gran d i ose ideology.

The demands made are concrete and simple: the free­ dom to travel, the d i g n ity to l ive without the fear of torture, the freedom to write what is thought and to read what is writ­ ten, and to gather and to meet openly. In a city that has itself become a sym bol and has long been subject to propaganda from right and left, the citizens of East Berl i n and Prague a re avo i d i n g e m pty r h etoric, a nd are instead see k i n g i m m ediate a n d . tang ible change.

Among 24 com para ble northwest a n d Lutheran col leges and u n i versities, P L U is the only regional u niversity to be listed i n a l l four of the magazi ne's biennial repo rts: 1 983, 1 985, 1 987 and 1 989. The Evergreen State Col lege in Olympia, Wash., is the only reg ional l i beral arts college to receive fou r ra nkings. This year's listings appea red in the maga­ zi ne's Oct. 1 6, 1 989, issue. PLU placed 1 4th among reg ional col leges a nd u niversities in the west.

Audience With King Olav v Of Norway A Highlight Of Rie'ke Journey By Jim Frazee


ot many Americans have the opportu­ nity for a p rivate a u dience with King Olav V of Norway. Not many Norwegians wou ld believe an America n if told of such a meeting. That was the case with PLU Presi dent W i l l iam O. Rieke in Oslo i n October d u ring his d rive into town from the a i rport. Ti red, unsure of the date after a hect ic trip that began i n Tokyo, and j u st having flown across Siberia, Rieke related to a ca b d river his appointment with the King. The d river, skeptical of his passenger, spent the entire trip to an Oslo hotel elaborati ng his doubt, and Rieke was u nable to convi nce h i m . vi nce h i m . Rieke ca me t o Oslo, a s he h a s fou r t i mes si nce 1 9 76, to renew acq u a i nta nces a n d re-em phasize contacts between PLU a n d Norway. His five-day visit n o t o n l y took h i m to meet t h e King, but also t h e A merica n Ambassador, the University of Oslo Rector, the Norway/American Association, and the Norway PLU A l u m n i Chapter. "We wa nted to i n vite the King to the PLU centen nial celebration in May 1 990," Rieke sa id, after his m eeti ng. "Of cou rse, he cou ldn't com mit just yet, but he was very receptive to the offe r. It was a n

extraord inary and positive t h i n g t o meet . h i m ." Rieke a lso p resented the K i n g , who is 86-yea rs-ol d , with a photo a l b u m of the Ki ng's visit to the u n iversity in 1 975. Dur­ ing their brief meeti ng, they spoke of the growth of the u n iversity si nce its fou nd i ng in 1 890 by Bj ug Harstad and that over 1 00 Norweg ians have gradu ated from PLU just i n the past decade. Ri eke reiterated t h e i nst itution's v a r i o u s orig ins a n d t ies and exchanges. He even got a chance to pitch PLU's Department of M u sic as a possi ble campus desti nation for Martha Lou ise, the King's g randdau ghter, who has a n interest i n singing. "You n ever know u n l ess you try," Rieke sa id. PLU's centennial was also the central top­ ic of conversation with the newly-a ppoi nt­ ed American A m b a ssa d o r, Loret M i l l e r R u p pe. App rised of PLU/N orway ti es, she said she wou ld help p romote the event in N o rway. She a l so offered the offi c i a l a m bassa d o r's res i d e n ce for a possi b l e reception a s part of t h e worl dwide celebra­ tion Oct. 1 5, 1 990 when a l u m n i chapters in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Oslo, and the u.s. will celebrate.

The an nou ncement was made by Dag Mork-U l nes, Norweg i a n consu l general i n San Francisco. The honor was established by H is Majes­ ty in J u ne 1 985. Accord ing to its statutes, the Order is conferred upon fo reign citi­ zens in recog nition of particu l a rly m eritori-

Specific plans wi l l b e made when it is known whether mem­ bers of the Roya l Fa m i ly will attend the ca mpus celebration.

Retu rn i ng TO His Roots

Dr. Robert Wills

Pro vost Began Career A t Church-Related, Liberal Arts Colleges By Jim peterson n one sense Dr. Robert Wil ls, PLU's pro­ vost si nce J u ly, has retu r n ed to his roots. H is u ndergraduate yea rs a n d fi rst n i ne years as an educator were spent on small, l i beral a rts, c h u rch-affi l i ated col l ege cam­ puses. After a 1 7-year i nterlude, he has returned to that envi ronment. Wills earned his bachelor's deg ree at the College of Wooster, a 1 , 200-student Pres­ byterian school in O h io, i n 1 962. H is fi rst teac h i n g posi t i o n was at Witten berg, a Lutheran i nstitution in Spri ngfield, Ohio. "After n i ne years at Wittenberg, a l l my experience had been at small l i beral arts colleges," he reca lls. "I wa nted to see what a l a rger p rogram wou l d be l i ke . " So he accepted a posit i o n at the U niversity of Kentucky i n Lex i ngton. N i ne more years later, seeking a n other chal lenge, he m oved on to the even larger U n iversity of Texas at Aust i n . At each stop his career i nterests broad­ ened . At Wittenberg, where he began as a theatre i nstructor, he became di rector of theatre. At Kentucky he began as theatre arts depart m e nt cha i r a n d beca me dean of the College of Fine A rts. At Texas, he held a si milar post i n a la rger progra m . O n each campus, however, he sti l l taught. The next logical step was to b r i n g his skills to an even b roader acad e m i c p ro­ gram. At the same t i m e h is i nterest i n the s m a l l cam pus, l i be r a l a rts setti n g was bei n g renewed. "I was t h i n k i ng about a ca m p us s m a l l e n o u g h f o r serious e m p h asis on facu lty teach i ng responsi b i l ities, but large enough to s u p port a n d e ncou rage the facu lty research strengths vital to teach i n g excel­ lence," Wills said.


He was not actively see k i ng a cha nge, but he was nom i nated for the PLU provost position, and PLU fit the defi niti o n of the kind of opportun ity he had been contem­ plating. PLU's l ocation, w h i le not a "decid­ i ng" factor, was not a d rawback; h is wife, Barbara Salisbury Wills, is from Seattle and holds a Ph.D. from the U niversity of Wash­ ington. "This was a real surpr ise; I never expec­ ted to ret u r n (to the Pacific Northwest) so q u i c k l y , " s a i d D r . B a r b a ra W i l l s. "I a m delighted . " T h e W i l ls' have been ma rried for five years. They worked together as col leagues in the Col lege of Fine Arts at Texas, where she was an assoc iate professor of drama.' "We shared many i nterests," she reca ll­ ed. " I admi red his flexibil ity and leaders h i p style. Particu l arly, I coul d n 't h e l p but b e impressed b y h is attitude toward women." The son of a Presbyterian m i n ister, Wills consi dered the m i n i stry as a ca ree r through his undergraduate years at Woos­ ter while he was majoring, fi rst i n voice, then i n theatre and speech. In fact, during h i s sen i o r yea r he a p p l ied for gra nts to support his gradu ate work at either a sem­ i nary or the U n i versity of I l l i n o i s t h eatre prog ram . He was offered both; when the time came to make the decision, he chose theatre. Reg a rd i n g t h at c h o i ce, W j l l s Ili kes to q u ote N ew York L i v i n g T h eatre founder Julian Beck, who once said, " I chose the­ atre rather t h a n the synagogue because I bel i eved my chances of salvation were greater there." But the concerns that contributed to his thoughts about the m i nistry also affected his theatre p u rsu its. He had been act i ng and singing since an early age, b ut he had no i ncli nation toward professional theatre. "Rather," he sa i d , "I see t h eatre as a means of changing people's l ives, of touch-

ing people - both audience and actors to make a difference i n how they l ive." Dr. Richard Moe, dean of PLU's School of t h e Arts, met W i l ls several years ago "when I was a neophyte member" of the I nternational Council of Fine Arts Deans. "I was struck by t h i s i m p ressive dean who was obviously a leader i n this august grou p," sa i d Moe. "He was warm and cor­ d i a l to me - a person he had n 't met before a nd about whom he knew noth­ i ng." He conti nued, "It was a joyous and seren­ d i pitous s u r p r. ise w h e n I lear ned he was being considered for our provost position. Not only did I have g reat respect for him personally, it is hig hly u n usual for an aca­ demic CEO to come out of the arts." It seems natu ra l for a former theatre professional l i ke W i l ls, who has written 1 0 produced performa nce pieces and di rect­ ed 90 p lays, to com ment that he is " role­ oriented" rather than "goal-oriented ." Nev­ ertheless he i ntrod uced th ree broad goals to the PLU faculty at thei r September fa l l conference: * "Growth toward even greater academ­ i c exce l l e nce, t h o u g h we are b u i l d i ng on considerable strength; * "I ncreasing d iversity - particula rly as that relates to women a nd eth nic mi nori ­ ties - i n a n effort to make t h e u n i versity more s i m i l a r to the world in which it exists; and * "Increasing structure and form; many of the systems that help ma nage t h i ngs su rvive from much ea rlier days and don't serve the contem pora ry u niversity as well as they cou ld." Rather than i m posing his w i l l from the top, W i l ls wants to know what others want

Endangered Species, Economics Topics Of New Faculty Books Two new books by PLU faculty members reached the bookstores i n late October. They are Wild Echoes: Encoun ters with the Most Endangered Species in North America by English Professor Charles Berg­ man, and Economics: Principles, Problems and Policies ( 1 1 th edition) by Econom ics

Bergman and B rue a re a mong t h e more than 50 publ ished authors on the PLU fac­ ulty. All were honored this past month at a reception hosted by the PLU bookstore. Bergman's book is a feisty, lea rned look at America's dead and dying a n i mal spe­ cies. It asserts t hat a n i mals "are only partly biological creatu res. They a re also sym bols i n which we ca n read who we a re." The concern, of cou rse, is that these sym bols - and t h u s o u r p o te n t i a l fo r self­ understanding - a re ra pidly va nishing.

While previous editions have been ava il­ able in C a n a d i a n , Aust ra l ian a n d I n d i a n adaptations, t h e 1 1 t h edition will a lso be publ ished in Russi a n .

Change is good; it is the only way i nstitutions ca n stay healthy." W i l l s co n t i n ued, "The general c u l t u re here is the kind of culture I enjoy. There is a capa b i l ity a n d a wi l l i n gness to cha nge. That fits my own i nclination to be discon­ tented at any given moment, know i ng that the best is yet to come." He beli eves that PLU's cu rrent cu rricu­ l u m study "is one of the most i mportant thi ngs going on at the moment. "It is a painfu l , torturous p rocess, decid­ ing what the most i m portant elements i n a h igher education really a re," he sa id. "It w i l l be i nt erest ing to see the res u l ts in a nother yea r or so." The res u l ts a re expected t o g u i d e the academ i c l ife of the u n i ve rsity i nto the 2 1 st centu ry and perhaps beyond . "PLU is an institution where I can, and do, enjoy working," W i l ls observed. "It val­ ues people above all else. The val ues of the institution a re va l u es I ca n su pport and encou rage.

Refl ections On Wild Echoes By Charles Bergman

I have a fantasy: I i magine myself sitting in my living room, on my sofa . O utside my house - outside our house - the a n imals a re gathering. Lost a n i mals, e n d a ngered a n i mals. M u rm u ri ng in wild echoes. It's a strange fee l i ng, knowi ng the a n i ­ mals a re n e a r , even as we t h i n k we've distanced ou rselves from them. They give me the se nse that t h e re's m o re to l ife t h a n I have known before - t h e sense that these animals know t h ings we don't know. This book is my attem pt to u nderstand, i n both soc i a l and person a l terms, t h e mea n i ngs o f the p henomenon o f e n d a n­ gered species. The prem ise is that a n i m als a re only partly biological creatu res. They a re also symbols in which we can read who we are. Drawing u pon l iterature and art, modern philosophers and ancient natural­ ists, explorers and biologists, I try to u n der­ stand what ani mals mean to humans, and the sign ificance of thei r loss in this age of mass exti nction, which we have caused .

species only as l a rge a n d g l obal issues. They a re, fi n a l ly, p rofo u n d l y personal i n thei r impl ications. In a landscape increas­ i ngly defi ned by a bsence, where a n i ma ls come to us out of a g rowing void, I get close to som e of the rarest animals on the conti nent, t rying to red iscover and feel thei r presence. I am helicoptered to a wolf den in t h e re mote mou nta ins of Alaska, and t rack down a rctic wol ves near the North Pole. I sta nd in a cage with the last su rviving d usky seaside spa rrow, i n Disney World, Florida - it d ied shortly after my visit and the race is now extinct. I search for bl ack-footed ferrets in the western p ra i ries - extremely rare theM, a n d no longer in the wild. They now l ive in cages, where they a re being captive bred, thei r babies born i n boxes. I fly with Ca lifornia condors up the G rapevine when t h ere were only six of these vultures left in the wild. Now condors too a re gone: They have all been captu red and live i n zoos. I follow West Indian manatees scarred by the pro­ pellors of motor boats. Tree a Florida pan­ ther deep i n a swa mp. Look for right wha les in the N o rth A t l a n t i c . S p l ash

t h rough a Lou i s i a n a swa m p after ivory­ bi lled wood peckers, one of the most myth­ ic of ou r native birds. Woven i nto these na rratives is the a rgu­ ment that ou r cu rrent attem pts to save e n d a n ge red species a re, i n a ny l a rger sense, doomed to fa i l u re, sad rearg u a rd batt les. They ca n't solve t h e p roblems, because they stem from the same mentali­ ty, the same posture toward natu re, that caused the problems i n the fi rst place, and ca n be s u m m a rized i n the a rrogant con­ cept of stewa rdsh ip. I try to reth i n k why so many endangered species defeat o u r , best effo rts on t h e i r beha lf, and what these creatu res' l ives say about us. I argue that endangered species represent a para­ dox: though they a re t h e res u l t of o u r l o n g obsession w i t h power over natu re, t hey em body the l i m its of t hat powe r. They a re a m i rror, not of our stu n n i ng trium phs over nature but of ou r fa ilu res. In the context of these broken creatu res, wh ich a re i ronica l ly more a part of cu ltu re than of natu re, my intent t h roughout the book is to t ry to re-create a n i mals, by learning to rei magine them and our world.

Mud On The Leaves

A Time of Antici pation

By Harvey J. Neufeld Vice President , Church Relations

By John D . Aakre Executive Director of the Annual Fund

By the time you read t h is col· umn, mos of the maple leaves on ca m p u s wi l l be gone, They have long resisted the energetic clean-up of our groundskeepers, Some were blown away. Others were swept away, raked away, p icked up or su cked u p , In a word, they were attacked, p l un­ d e red, m u lched, b u rned or stac k ed on th e compost h ea p with fervent environmental zest H owever, s o m e l ea ves st i l l rem a i ned . I celebrate t h e victory of one leaf, caked with mud, p u m m eled by ti res and feet, pelted with ra i n . I t defies all modes of destruction and now rests safely on my desk. Even by itself, it is stra ngely bea ut i fu l w i t h i ts blotched ru sset su rfa ce not unl ike a martian l a ndscape. It is a reminder of t h e golden carpet of warm October days. It tells us about the cycles of l ife, the com­ ings and goi ngs of a l l t h i n gs w h i c h b e l o n g to t h e nat u ra l order. Natu re not only ca resses and i nspires us, but buffets us as wel l. The order of t h i ngs is what we rage against Days move on. N ights too. The fam i ly moves on.

Children, too. Life moves on and claims the weak and the old and the sick among us. But one leaf at least su rvives and m u d or n ot. declares t h e beauty o f l ife, the ruggedness of every part of God's creation Not ju st leaves, but h u ma n s also endu re. Some o f those spe­ cial persons a n d d i st i n g u ished col leagues - in the autumn of theIr years - were guests at the PLU p resident·s C h ristmas tea party. I was t h ere t h i s yea r to hel p greet persons. It is a grand occasion. Some of these fol ks shuffle a n d shake. Some wobble a n d qu ake. Some stand tall. One is i n a wheel chair. All conve rse with enthusiasm . They d ress roya lly and eat heart­ ily. They end u re with dlg nity. In a word t h ey a re bea utifu l a n d their dign i ty transfo rms every­ one whose life they touch. As I store my golden, i m per­ fect and muddied leaf between the pages of Malachai and Mat­ thew for fu t u re i n s p i ration, I al so store i n my memory t h e bea u ty o f P L U ' s friends. T h e i r im perfections make t h e m a l l the more endea ring.

The Ch ristmas season is a time of antici pation. Ch ristmas l ights go u p on the house. C h i l d ren begin to d ream a bout the pre­ sents t h ey h o p e to recei ve u nder the tree. Advent wreaths a re lit and the cand les cou nt down the weeks until Christmas day. When t hat day arrives we cele­ b rate the g reatest gift of a l l The Ch rist child i n a m a nger i n B et h le h e m . A s w e reflect o n God's gift to us, we understand the powerfu l i m agery at work d u ri n g t h i s season w h e n we share our own gifts with others. You r Q C l u b g i ft s t o Pacifi c Lutheran U n iversity t h i s Ch rist­ mas represent a marvelous pre· sent to our students. These gifts provide them with the opport u n ity to m a ke t h e most o f the many talents the Lord has given them. The majori· ty of those students don't know too m uch about t h e Q Club. But perhaps that's not very i m por· tanto What they do know is that someone cares. T h a n k you for being the kind of peo ple who give to others.

December is a time of a ntici pa­ tion for the Q Clu b too. Over a q u a rter of a l l Q C l u b gifts are received i n the month of Decem· ber That means we can't relax just because we a re a l ittle a h ead of last year's tota ls th roug h Novem ber. H ow many of you respond during the next few weeks w i l l d eter m i ne h ow many PLU Students we can help i n the year a head . So we wait. and antici pate. During the early years of the Q C l u b's existence we d id n't top the 5200,000 m a rk i n a n n u a l gifts until 1 977. This year m ore than t h a t wi l l be rece ived i n Jecem ber a l one. Total Q C l u b gifts s i n ce 1 9 7 2 w i l l e xceed 57.75 mil lion by the end of the month . Yet in order to help the many students who need finan· cial assistance today, the Q C l u b mu st ra ise 5 1 ,000,000 or more each year by 1 99 1 . So we are torn between two p o l es. We need to celeb rate o u r su ccess and antici pate what it will take to conti nue that success i n the years ahead.

The Joy Of G ivi ng By Ed Larson Director of Planned Giving

Giving a gift of charity was always the farth est t h i ng from Joe's m i nd (J oe is not h is real nameD. J oe was one of t h ose persons about whom everyone who knew h i m sa id, "He sti l l has the fi rst dollar he ever had!" Joe even adm its to t h i s day that at one time he hated the idea of giving anything away. One day a few years ago a rep­ resentative from PLU met with Joe. The pu rpose of the meeting was to tell J oe about PLU about the U n iversity's m ission and goals. And - to ask Joe if he would consider a g ift to PLU . At first J oe questioned the idea of making any kind of gift to the University, but for some reason, to make a long story short, Joe

relented and made that first gift (a smal l giftD. L i t t l e by l i t t l e Joe's g i fts i ncreased in a m o u n t and fre­ qu ency. To t h i s day, he rea l ly isn't su re j u st why t h i s is t h e case. But o n e t h i ng is su re, a n d Joe is qu ick to t e l l t h i s to any­ one, somewhere along the way Joe began to feel somet h i ng special. There was a "joy of giv­ ing." Each of us has the potential to experience this "joy of giving!" It begins with one's first g ift and g rows with every su bsequent gift . The fee l i ng is u ndeniable. F i n d someone who knows h ow to make a gift and you will fi nd someone who knows the "joy of giving."

Pride I n PLU By Jame-s Hushagen '70 PreSident, Alumni ASsociation

June - Camirillo-Thousand Oaks, calif.

Alumni and friends gathered to honor former PLU faculty and staff l iving in the area, including Pa ul and Marjorie Reigstad, John and Ruth Kuethe and Li nka Preus Johnson . Ph i l i p Nordqu ist. PLU's Centennial h istorian, was t h e featu red speaker. The h ost was Jon Olson '62. Forty-th ree people attended,

JUne - San Diego, Calif.

Pride has had a checkered h is­ tory The early c hu rc h fat h e rs listed pride as one of the "seven deadly sins," right down t here with l ust greed, avari ce, envy, gluttony and slot h . The New Tes­ tamen Inveighed against pride, equating i t wit h arrogance and haughti ness. Recently, h owever, pride has made a comeback. Self-estee m p rog ra ms u rge c h i l d ren to be p roud of themselves and t heir accompl ish ments, Ou r political leaders u rge us to be proud of our cou ntry and, o u r com m u ni­ ties. EveryonE:, it seems, is u rged to be proud of somet h i ng. As PLU a l u m n i , we certa i n ly can take p ride i n PLU and its ach i evements. M a n y n a t i o n a l p u b l i cations, i n c l u d i n g m ost recently u.s. News and World Report, have consistently rated PLU as one of America's best u ni­ versities, PLU's enteri n g fresh­ men rate in the top 1 0% of all entering fresh m e n based o n average SAT scores. PLU's record of 1 8 F u l b right sch o l a rs i n t he past 1 4 years, includ i ng t h ree in 1 989, is extraordinary and p rob­ ably un matched by a ny s i m i l a r institution. PLU a lso consistently gets m o re t h a n its s h a re of Nation a l M e r i t Sc h o l a rs and recently enrol led its second Pres­ idential Scholar. The University's successes are not all in academ i cs, h owever. The su ccess of PLU's ath letic teams is wel l known, with honors too numerous to relate, i nclud­ ing t h e women's soccer team's unprecedented second consecu­ tive national cha mpionsh i p . The Un iversi ty's m u sical g ro u ps, including the Choir of the West, are n a t i o n a l l y k n ow n a n d acclai med.

J u st as t h e a l u m n i can b e proud of PLU, so also c a n PLU b e p r o u d o f i t s a l u m n i . Some 25,000 strong, PLU alumni have d isti n g u i sh ed t h emsel ves i n every facet o f American l ife. To name j st a few, consider the work of W i l l iam Foege ('57) i n erad icating small pox; Duane Ber­ entson ('51 ) in creating Washing­ ton's com mercial i nfrastruct u re as t h e Di rector of Transporta­ tion, and of Judit h Billi ngs ('6 1 ) i n i m p roving t h e ed ucation of Was h i ngton's c h i l d re n as t he Su peri ntendent of Public Instruc­ tion. N u m e rous other PLU a l u m n i a re having a profound effect o n society a s educators, health care professionals, m i n isters, busi ness l eaders and citizens, O u r world would be different, and p robably a l ittle worse, but for PLU and its alumni. While PLU and its a l u m n i can certainly be proud of each oth­ er, neither can be compl acent. The futu re is perilous, PLU's financial strength does not cur­ rently e q u a l i t s a ca d e m i c strengt h . T h e m a rket for t h e best a n d t he b rightest students and fac u l ty is g rowi ng i n c reas­ ingly com pet i ive PLU's cont i n­ ued g rowth in Q ality requ i res a great deal of work and su bstan­ tial su pport from PLU's a l u m n i and friends. PLU is a place of which a l u m n i can b e justifiably p roud. P L U i s a winner, and we can be p roud to support a winner. As PLU heads i nto its cente n n i a l year, t h e Alumni Association takes contin­ ued p ride i n PLU's acco m pl ish­ ments and dedicates itself to making PLU an even better place in its second centu ry.

The com m u n ity outreach pro­ gram that visits the ea st-side Tacoma schools celebrated its 1 0th anniversary i n 1 989. What began i n 1 980 out of necessity with 1 6 players has evolved i nto somewhat of a PLU Football tra­ dition. This year, 90 players a n d 1 2 cheerleaders fou nd their way to Lister a n d Mcllvaigh on Fri­ days before home ga mes. It's a su ccess story, i n deed, b u t i t hasn't always been t h a t way. "The principal (at Lister at the ti me), Da ryl Ashpole, and I were sitting and d ri n k i n g coffee one afte rnoon, lamenting over the fact that there weren't enough role models, parti cula rly m a l es, for these kids," recal led Tacoma School District social worker Ted Joh n stone, the prog ram's coor­ dinator. Ash p o l e was aware of t h e image-b u i lding concepts used by Westering and suggested a visit to PL U . "I was fa m i l i a r with Frosty's p rogra m and some of the th ings he believed in," sa id Ashpole. Weste r i n g remem bers t h a t conversation. "We met a n d they

Sixteen p l ayers wo rked with g rades 4-6 the first yea r. The n u mber i ncreased to 28 pl ayers i n the p rog ra m 's seco nd year and th ey e n l a rged the student participation to K-6. Those years were basic in structu re, using handouts, blackboards and play­ ers in front of classrooms.

Ch ristian Wh ite, a sophomore at Lincoln H ig h Schoo l , re mem­ bers well the Lutes/L ions p ro­ g ra m when she attended Lister. She said the players and cheer­ leaders made an im pact. "They a lways told us to say, 'I can and I w i l l ' not ' I can't and I won't.' (Fri day) was a treat for us. Some­ thing we looked forward to," she sa id. Lute q u a rterback and co-cap­ t a i n Craig K u p p a l so felt good about the program. " It's a good cha nce to h e l p kids feel good about themselves. Stressing the posit ive. Finding the positive . . I hope that's what they got out of it. And , it's a two-way deal," he sa id. "You learn how i m por­ tant it is to m a ke ot hers feel good. I had no idea I'd have so much fun." Westering adm its that it is d if­ ficu lt to measu re the effect the program has on the kids, many who com e from u nsta ble fa m i ­ l i es. But, h e doesn't doubt t h e program's worth. "We just throw the rock in the water. How fa r the c i rcles go out, I don't know," said Wester­ i ng. "Some people can't relate to this. They think put-u ps a re l i ke polishing the apple, that you ' re doing it for the wrong reasons. I'm making you feel good so I ' l l get a promotion, rather t h a n a gen u i ne fee l i n g of u nd e rsta n d­ ing that that's how we'll a l l feel better," he said. J i m Funk, father of 1 6-year-old Billie Jo Funk, who attended list­ er d u ring g ra des 4-6, eagerly endo rses the p rog ra m . "That a rea of town is co nsidered by m a ny the d u m p of Taco m a . F rosty a n d t h e p layers ca m e over a n d made t h e kids feel like so mebody cared for them, l i ke they were h u m a n bei ngs," he said. Funk sa id the prog ra m's stabil­ ity is what i m p ressed h i m most. "They have all ki nds of prog ra ms that come in, but none stay," he sa id. "This p rog ra m is sol id. Westering agreed. "The one l i g ht is that we keep com i ng back. We' re t h e re," he sa i d . "That alone enco u rages these kids to give it their best shot. to learn how to rise a bove what you can do," he sa id.

hen you aim you r si ghts h i g h . . . . Nearly two years ago, as plans for the PLU centennial observance were mov­ ing into high gear, the question was pondered, "Who wou ld be a n ideal kickoff key­ note speaker?" The name of fo rmer Presi dent J i m my Carter was offe red . S i nce that t i m e, no one else has been seriously considered. Carter, who received the Al bert Schweit­ zer Awa rd for Humanitarianism in 1 987, is recog n i zed worldwide as a cham pion of human rights and a servant to humanity. PLU is also fortu nate that Distingu ished Alumnus W i l l i a m Foege ' 5 7 is executive d i rector of the Carter Presidential Center at Emory U n iversity in Atlanta, Ga., a n d works closely with the fo rmer p resident. But beca u se of C a rter's worldwide esteem, his time is i n g reat demand, and brea ki ng events often d ictate his sch edule on short notice. For exam ple, he was invito ed by both N icaraguan leader Dan iel Orte· ga and the opposition party to verify the fai rness of elections there in February. He has spent n u m erous h o u rs in meeti ngs with the leaders of virtually every nation in the troubled M ideast. This past year he was President Bush's em issary to Pa nama d u ring that cou ntry's elections and was a mediator between Eth iopian factions that have battled each other for decades. He personally oversees p rog rams at the Carter Center that atte m p t to e radicate disease among children, ma ke ba rren a reas blossom and erect b ridges of understanding between suspicious nations. So sweeping is Carter's p resent i mpact that the respected Economist of London, a n i nternation a l l y c i rc u l ated weekly, calls the p resent time his "second term." Time magaz i n e calls him "our best ex· president." At Scene p resstime, Ca rter had not ruled out an appearance at PLU this spri ng . Nor has a defi n ite commitment been made o r a date set. D r . Foege h a s remai ned encou r­ agi ng, but has explai ned that if Carter can come, it l i kely will be with no more than two or th ree weeks notice. We remain hopeful ... and opti m istic!

In addition to the anticipated, but tenta­ tive, kickoff event, the year-long celebra· tion wi l l beg i n with a gala party for cam· pus faculty and staff March 24.

"Not only is this generous gift an incredi­ ble boost to the arts at PLU, it is a lso a mag.n ificent statement by these g reat fa m i l ies about t h e i m porta nce of music and the arts in the lives of all of us who live in Tacoma-Pierce Cou nty," Moe said.

When i nformed of the gift, Robbins said "One word seems to appear and reappea � as I try to describe the magnitude of this generous gift: com mun ity. A mem ber of ou r Tacoma com m u n ity has acknowledged and affirmed our gift of music to the com­ munity; in turn, the gift will make possible further enrichment of the cultural l ife of ou r com m u n ity." When Eastvold was b u i lt there were two choi rs, a s m a l l orchestra a n d a concert band.

Centennial Campaign Public Phase Begins nnou ncement of the Russel l-Baker g ift for the new PLU m usic b u i l din g - the Mary Baker Russe l l Mu sic Center - ma rked the kick-off of the public phase of PLU's "Shaping Tomorrow" Centennial Fund cam­ paign. The 530 m i l l ion ca mpaign represents the . second phase of a decade-long, 550 m i l lion effort to un derg i rd the u n i ve rsity finan­ cially for the challenges of its second cen­ tury. Over 5 2 2 . 5 m i l l ion in g i fts have bee n generated toward the phase two goa l . Luth e r Bekemeier, v i ce-pres i d e nt for development, noted that "We are on tar­ get to meet the goals of the ca m paign. The biggest chal lenge i s to com plete the fu nding for the new music b u il d i n g . " Approximately 5 3 . 5 m il l ion in gifts and pledges have been raised to date toward the projected 55.5 m i l l ion cost of the faci l i­ ty. "As is usually the case i n a la rge cam­ paign, the gifts are not equally distributed in all areas," said Bek€m eier. "As a conse­ quence, so me o bjectives a re ahead of schedule, while others remain chal lenges." While the prima ry focus has been on the music b u i ld i n g in rece nt months, the im pact of the campaign goes far beyond that single project, he indicated. A variety of short · and lon g-ra nge goals a re being financed. The campaign will dou ble the u n i versity's endowment from 55 m i l l ion to 5 1 0 m i l l ion. Endowed fu nds underg i rd PLU's effort to provide st udent sch o l a rship/fi nancial a i d assistance, a n d strengthen the u n i versi­ ty's ability to weather econom ic un certai n­ ty by providing a sta b l e base of a n n u a l incom e. Nearly 52 m i l lion has been rai sed to date, with an additional 5 1 . 7 mill ion comm itted in pledges and irrevoca ble deferred gifts, Bekemeier noted. "It is i m portant that we keep PLU finan­ cially accessible to all students," he sa i d .

Shelley A. Owen of Grah am, Wash., is the scholarsh ip recipient.

Restricted gifts, which f u n d projects specified by the donor, usually provide scholarships. 52.5 m i l l ion was earmarked for enhance­ ment of special projects, such as faculty research and new academic programs. Much of this su pport comes from corpo­ rate, fou ndation and governm ent gifts and g rants. Progress towa rd the la tte r goals is on target to meet or exceed the original goal . Bekemeier stated . Thus the th rust of the ca mpaign wi l l continue to · be concentrated on the mu sic b u i l d i n g and endowment fu nding, he ind icated . The first phase of the ca mpaign, a 520 m i l l ion effort called "Sharing i n Strength," was con du cted between 1 9 80 and 1 9 85. The u n i ve rsity's fi rst l arge-sca le capital d rive focused on p h ysical i m p rovements, ca pita l construct i o n , i n itial endowment effo rts and on-going sup port fo r a n n u a l operations.
