PLU President Loren J. Anderson and Reg ent Don Morken unveil a d rawing of the future Morken Center for Learning and Technology.

Center for Learning and Technology named for Morken family he state-of-the art Center fo r Learning and Technology will bear the n ame o f a fam i ly with a long history of suppo rting PLU. Construction began with a ground­ breaking for the first p h ase of the proj­ ect and a naming ceremony in M ay. The new home of the School of Business, the D epartment of Compute r Science and Computer Engineering and the Department of Mathematics is now known as The Morken Center for Learning and Technology. The name honors Don Morken '60 and his family, who for decades have been deeply i nvolved i n tbe PLU community as friends, volunteers, counselors and financia.l s upporters. "The new Cen ter for Learning and Technology will become a m ajor attrac­ tion for the best and b rightest students, but just as importantly, i t will help PLU continue to attract top-cali ber p ro fes­ sors who wish to teach i n an environ­ ment that facilitates learning at an advanced l evel, u ti lizing i n the p rocess the most advanced technology, " 4 PLU SCENE FALL 2002 > HERE & NOW

Morken said d u ring a groundbreaking luncheon i n M ay. M o rken is a member of the Board of Regents and currently serves as the chairman of the Investment Sub­ Committee. H e has p reviously served as chair of its Budget and F inance Commi ttee. He was awarded the PLU D istinguished Alumnus Award in 1 9 9 6 for h i s pro fessional disti nction i n t h e field o f i nvestment management and his outstanding dedicatio n and service to PLU, and is co-chair of The Campaign for Pacific Lutheran Universi ty: The Next Bold Step. Morken's father, Ed, served on the Board of Regents from 1 949 to 1 966. H i s aunt, R. Eline Kraable M o rken, was dIrector of the PLU School of Nursing fro m 1 9 5 3 to 1 967. H i s daugh ter, Sonya (Morken '00) Prata, is an M B A graduate, a n d his son-in-law, Anthony Prata, is a student. Both are continuing the Morken tradition o f involvement in and s uppOrt for PLU as m e mbers of Q Club. M orken and h i s wi fe, Wanda, have p rovided financial su pport for tbe gen­ eral operating b udget, the endowment, the Genesee Scholars h ips, the Morken Fami ly Endowed Scholarshi p and K PLU. They have encouraged others to

give through Q Club chal lenge gifts and have themselves participated in Q Club at i ts h ighest level. Tbey bave also provided fu nds to establish the first D istinguished Professorship at tbe uni­ versity and they co-endowed the Raphael Lemkin Prize for an annual s tudent essay competition abou t geno­ cide. They are members of PLU's H eritage Society and Lifetime G iving Society. In April 2000 the Morken fam ily made a com mi tment to p rovide lead funding for The Center for Learni ng and Technology. An in.itial gift is fu nd­ ing the planning and the first p hases of construction o f the building. Through past and future com mitments made to the university, the Morkens also will fund an endowment that will help ensure the future of the facility. The Morken Center will be located on lower campus west of Rieke Science Cen ter. To date more than $ 1 1.5 m i llion has been raised for construc­ tion of the $ 1 9 million faci l i ty.

Wang Center has new director and home on campus n administrator wi th a long history of academic service and international expertise will lead the Wang Ccnrcr for In ternational Programs at PLU. Janet E . Rasm ussen was appoi nted di rector o f the center for i ts inaugural year. The center was fund­ ed late last year through a $4 million gift from Peter Wang '60, and his wife G race. "Janl?t has a passion for inte rnational educa­ tion that will p rovide the Wang Center with a strong foundation and take PLU's international J a net Rasmussen p rograms to a new level," said PLU President Loren]. Anderson. "Sh e is deeply com m i tted to developing new i n ternational opportu-

n ities fo r both students and faculty." Rasmussen was a professor of No rwegian and Scand inavian Studies at PLU from 1977 to 1991, and during that time served as dean of Hu m an i ti es, chair of the Dep a rt men t of Languages and L i terature and c oordt n a to r of the Sca nd i n av i an Area Stud ies Program.

PLU loses friend, philanthropist Jane Russell hen Jane T. Russell d ied o n May 10, she left a legacy at PLU that continues in the lives that were touched through her care and dedication. A former member of PLU's Board of Regents and the guiding force behind many projects on campus, Russell fought a courageous battle with cancer. The Mary Baker Russell Music Buildi ng named i n honor o f her 1110ther­ i n-law was one of the many projects jane Russell s p earhe aded. " Fo r Jane, i t was an abundant life s im ply filled wi th people," PLU President Loren Anderson said . "In so many ways she was the Good Shepherd person i­ J a n e T. Russell fied for all o f us, fo r our causes, fo r o u r com mLlI l ity and for our q uality o f life."

The 6-3 ruling was issued inJune, resolving a 1995 lawsuit comending that universities with a church affi li.a­ tion should be ineligible to received state supp0r(. The court ruled that the EOG program was designed to men the critical needs of students, not to foster religion or religious worship. "There were two win ners," said Loren ]. Anderson, presidem of PLU. "High­ need, place bound students can co min­ ue their ed ucation at a college of their choice, and taxpayers can ensure an education fo r these studen ts without the huge expense of add ing capacity to the state university system." The EOG p rogram p rovides $2,500 annual grants to financially needy Stu­ dems who can only atte nd a college close to home because of work or fam i­ ly com m i tmems.

and un iversity relations. "We see i t as a reflection of the dedicated efforts, com­ mitment and gene rosity of our donors and volunteers and their belief i n this place and the vitality of our mission." The annual fund, which p rovides crit­ ical fin ancial support for the university, hit record levels last year, both i n money raised and t h e rate of alum ni participation. For the first time, more than 5,000 people con tributed to the fund that helps PLU meet day-to-day expenses. The percentage of alum ni who contributed jumped from 17 to 20 percent. Both milestones helped the annual fund reach a goal of $2.5 million. This year a special teleph one cam­ paign that targeted firs t-time donors resulted in more than SOO new donors to the annual fund . Lauralee Hagen, director of alumni and parent relations, says even small donations make a dif­ ference. "It's not how much you give, but that you give that is i m portant."

m ileston es LU's highly successful fund-rais­ ing drive, The Campaign for Pacific Lutheran University: The Next Bold Step, won a Circle of Excellence in Fund Raising award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. The award, which honors superior fund-raising programs across the coun­ try, is based on a juried analysis of data PLU submits. This year nearly 1,000 universities were eligible, and only 47 of them won an award. This places PLU in the top 5 percent of the eligible univer­ sities and the top 2 percent of universi­ ties nationally. At the end of the fiscal year, May 3 1 , t h e campaign stood a t more than $ 102 mil lion-a new record and $30 million more than the successful Make a Lasting Diffe rence campaign that raised $72 mil lion. To tal fund-raising for the 200 1 -2002 fiscal year hit $24.5 million-the second best year i n PLU history and a 15 perce nt i ncrease over the p rior fiscal year total o f $ 2 1 . 4 m i l­ lion.

said Ryan '79, a faculty fel low at PLU who later became an academic partner and friend to Heyerdahl. Now i t's l ikely Ryan will fi nish Heyerdahl's last book - his final words on the Kon-Ti ki exped i tion, which the two had been working o n before Heyerdahl died April IS at age S7. By chance, Ryan saw Heyerdahl, an esteemed anth ropologist, archeologist and author, at the Royal Geographical Society in London a decade ago. Ryan pushed his way up to talk to h i m, and they chatted for half an hour. A couple years later, Ryan went to see Heyerdahl at his home on the Canary Islands, and discovered Heyerdahl needed someone to help h i m research. The pair became partners and friends, and Ryan contin­ ues to work for the Kon-Tiki Museum in Oslo.

Smart people know where to turn for help: to the Idiot's Guid.e


f you're looking for a blow-by-blow account of the Roman conquest and rule or a concise wrap-up of the d ebate over creationism, you m ight wan t to consult an i d iot. O r rather, an I d iot's Guide. Two PLU faculty members h ave wri t­ ten popu lar books in "The Complete I d iot's G uide" series known for its prac­ tical, readable advice on compl icated topics. Don Ryan '79 and Eric Nelson '82 have fou r books between them, and each is at work on another. "We consider them textbooks for the lai ty," Nelson said. Ryan, a facu l ty fel low i n the Division of H umanities, h ad several Idiot's G u ide books, but realized there were none avai lable on archaeology, his spe­ cialty. He pro posed one to the publish­ er, Alp h a Books, and wrote the "The Comp lete I diot's G u ide to Lost C ivilizations." He fol lowed i t up wi th guides on b i b lical mysteries and ancient Egypt. H e's at work o n another book abou t the world of the Bible. Ryan suggested his colleague Eric


Nelson, ass istant professor of classics, p ropose a book abou t the Roman Empire. Nelson did - and i t was pub­ lished in 2001. He is working on a book abou t Ancien t G reece and the Ancient Olympics, which is d u e to be published next summer, Just in time for people to brush u p before the 2004 Athens G ames.

Bright people might want to learn about a new subjedy but be overwhelmed by jargon­ filled academic journals or bored by a standard textbook.

"You can't d u m b i t down so i t's con­ d escendi ng," Ryan said . "But you have to be authori tative. You write l ike you're talking to an i n troductory course." They real ize there is some s kepticism in the academic com m unity about books wi th the word "idiot" i n the title, but both fee l strongly that they are educating a b road audience wi th thei r vol umes. Bright people might want to learn about a new subject, but be over­ whelmed by jargon-filled academic journ al s o r bored by a standard text­ book. The I d iot's G u ide is a perfect alternative, the authors say. Both PLU professors' books have been steady sellers, and they h ave brought acclaim from experts and elicited responses from readers around the worl d . Cri tics also praise them. KMT: A Modern Jou rnal o f Ancient Egypt, said Ryan's guide to Ancient Egypt was very e ffective. "It also estab­ l ishes au thor Don Ryan as the first great popularizer of Egyptology in the Twenty-fi rs t Centu ry," said a review. James]. Clauss, p rofessor of classics at the U nivers i ty of Washi ngton, called Nelson's guide, "a clear and engaging accou n t of ancient Rome." Both au thors say the success of the i r books - o n what a r e not generally con­ s idered popular topics - shows the i n terest and i n te l l igence of readers. " People have a h unger - they want to k now about the past, how it ties i n to the presen t," Nelson said. The writing style takes some getting used to - it's hard to synthesize so m uc h material i n to concise and humorous p ieces, they say - but both men have developed a methodology for p u tting the books together. Their books are available at all bookstores i nclud ing the PLU Bookstore. "I think it's i mportant for academics to try to raise the level of public d is­ course," Nelson said . "And there are many people out there who k now about PLU now, because of the author bios printe d on the books." By Katherine Ned/and


Admissions publications bring new message to prospective students rospective PLU students now receive a bigger and brig hte r viewbook and redesigned admissions materials that follow a new theme of wbat they will find at PLU: Challenge Support Success The Admissions Office, along with University Co m munications, created the new publications over the last year. The first publication in the new era is the search mai ler, a small bookler given to prospective college students that allows them to request a viewbook. Published and senr out in early 2002, ind ications are tbat students a re respond ing well-requests for view­ books are up 60 percent from the previ­ ous year's m ailer.

The new viewbook was pri n ted this su mmer. It is much bigger than previ­ ous versiolls: 64 pages compared to 24. Rewri tten and redesigned, it follows a new color scheme, contains dozens of new photOgraphs and tells rhe personal success stories of students a.lld alum ni. "We're exc ited to put in the hands of prospective students a viewbook that contai ns a rich tapestry of ollr stll­ den ts' experiences with PLU," said Laura Polcyn '74 '79, vice president for Admissions and Enrollment Services. The new publications also take advan tage of PLU's expansive In ternct presence, linking students to several dozen PLU Web sites. The outreach conti nues this fall with a series of postcards, whic h closely focus on individual students from diverse backgrounds, and br:1I1d new publications for prospective interna­ tional and transfer studen ts.

PLU grad helps revitalize neighborhood school playground By Katherine Hedland )88 Photography by Chris Tumbusch

or three years, Darius Alexander '02 super­ vised children on the d i lapidated play­ gro u nd at Spanaway Elementary School. Because there were only a few swings and balls available, he spent m uch of the recess period trying (0 calm down ch ildren and teach them to share the sparse (Oys the school had to offer. " To be honest, they would argue and fight a lot," said Alexander, who was a teacher's aide and playground supervi­ sor while earn ing his degree in sociolo­ gy from PLU. People at school knew it was impor­ tam (0 p rovide the kids with good, safe equ i pment (0 play on, and he and teachers discussed several ways ro raise money, s uch as recycling cans. Then Alexander had a better idea - he would si mply ask som eone for the money. He wrote (0 State Farm Insurance, where he had com pleted an internship during the sum mer of2001 and was scheduled to start work after grad ua­ tion. Alexander expl ained the nced :md the fact that the financially strapped district hadn't been able to replace dilap idated equ ip mem when it was removed. He stressed the i mponance of

i nstilling pride among students for their school. To his surprise and students' elation, State Farm paid for brand new play­ ground equipment and more with a grant of nearly $28,000. Now, a large red and blue, steel and plastic p lay­ ground structure d raws all the c h i ldren around at recess. They climb, crawl, slide and hang from its bars. Children from the neigh borhood also use the playground after school and on week­ ends. The new equi pmem was i nstal led sho rtly before school recessed in June. Younger children also enjoy a large sandbox. And there's even a li ttle money leftover for something else (0 be added in the future. "Just being out h ere at recess was so different," Alexander said. "Th e kids play (Ogether and take turns. They (Ook pride i n it, they (Ook ownership. You don't really see any garbage out here any more. Before it was always a mess . " State Farm offered a grant in the interest of following i ts mOt(O of being a good ne igh bor. Alexander says the company is s incere in i ts effons . "They're real aboU[ waming to h e lp the community. " "We're glad t hat Darius brough t this idc;! (0 us," said Vicki Harper, a ScatI' Farm public affairs specialist. " The

playground gets used a lot, nO[ only by the student s bm the surrounding com­ m u n i ty. It fits right i n wi th our goal of helping communities." The Bethel School District paid for the concrete foundation and the spongy, black top under the equipment. Alexander, who grew up in Taco ma and attended nearby Thompson Elemen tary School, said it probably would've been years before the pla),­ ground was im proved without the grant. "r think we saved cans for about cwo months and gO[ abou t 94 cents," he said with a bugh. Spanaway Elemen tary is comprised of students from d iverse economic back­ grounds, Alexander said. He drew on his sociology backgro und to work closely with the children, many who have special needs. "You reall y have to teach kids how (0 care about each other before you can teach them (0 learn," he said. Alexander and his wife, Monica, recently bought a house i n Spanaway. He says he's enjoying h is job as a claims representative, but h e misses being at the school on a regular basis. "It was h ard leaving the kids after bei ng h ere three years," said the man stlIdenrs call " Mr. D or Mr. A. " "I'm proud [0 say i t's my schoo!." �

Berg sraned mak i ng rraditional Hardanger fidd les a decade ago, afrer h i s daugh ter, Kari '90, brough r h i m a book from Norway abour what is wide­ ly called the cou nrry's national i nstru­ menr. I t i s s i m i lar co the violin, and each i s a hand m ad e work of art. It has fou r or five strings that rUIl underneath the fi ngerboard and a dd e c h o ing overconcs. Earl ier this year, Berg co mplete d con­ struction of an unusual Hardanger viola and cel lo. Berg won't come right o u t a nd say h i s i s rhe only H ardanger cello in existence, bur it looks like that i s the case. He saw one earlier this year at a museum i n Norway that was made in 1 860, but it lacked the understrings o r other characreristics of true H arda nger insfru m e n rs. The idea for building al l the instru­ menrs started when Linda Caspersen Andresen, exhibit com m i ttee co-chair at the Scandinavian Cu ltural Cenrer and a cellist, wanred co play the Nordic tunes. She mentioned co Berg t hat it would be easier co play them on a cello than co learn co play the fiddle. " For fun I thought r would make a Hardangcr cello and surp rise h e r," said Berg, who lives i n Eugene, O re., where he runs a violi n repair shop. " B u t r was so excited that I had co tell her. "Then the thought occurred co me that i f I had twO fiddles and a cello, [ only needed a viola co complete a



quartet," Berg said. He learned abou t t h e viola-and then b u i l t i t . Berg a n d And resen fel t t h e insuu­ menrs had co be played. That's how Nordic Vib rations was born. Andresen, Tow Hanson 'OS, Karin and David Lober Code make up the quartet.

Along with creating the Ha rd a nge rs Berg also makes h i s own design of an alternatively shaped instrument cal led a "VioLynn," which Ronning will p la y ,

at the concert.

Berg looks forward co hearing the insrruments played i n Lagerquist on h i s first visit t o the acoustlc masterplece. "It i s truly exci ting co have a con­ cen where so many o f my i nstru­ menrs will be played," Berg said. Berg made his first Hardanger i n 1 9 93. I n 1 9 97, h e contributed a golden-hued Hardanger fi ddle to PLU's Scandi navian Cul tural Cente r. Berg became interested in stri ngs when Kari was 6 and began taking vio­ lin lessons.

A decade of service marks Loren Anders on's p residency

By Philip A. Nordquist ' 5 6



oren I Anderson was raised in Rugby, N.D. He received his B.A. from Concordia College as a philoso­ ph)! major. He completed his graduate educa.­ tion at Michigan State University and the University of Michigan, focusing on commu­ nication theory and l-esearch.

tory In 1 984, he became executive director of the division for college and ttniversilJ! serv­ ices ofthe American Lutheran Church. He retllrned to Concordia in 1 988 as executive vice president with responsibilities forfimd development, communication, academic planning and general administration.

lVIost ofAnderson's career has been dedi­ cated to Luthen:m higher education. At Concordia College, he senlcd as assistant pro­ fessor of speech communication and director ofinstitutional l-esearch stal-ting in 1 972_ After serving as assi;-tant to the president from 1975 to 1 976, he became vice president for planning and development. At 3 1, he was the youngest vice president in Concordia his-

In 1 992 Anderson became PLU's 12th president.


Philip A. Nordquist '56 iilterviewed Anderson for Scene earlier thisyear. Nordquist graduated from Pacific Lutheran College and from the University of Washington where he l-eceived M.A. and Ph. D. degrees in history. He has taught histo-

at PLU since 1 963 and in 1 990 published the centennial history of PLU, "Educating For Service. "


P h i l i p Nordquist: Can you say some­ thing about the nature and range of the professional res ponsibilities that you had prior co coming co PLU and bow yo ur undersranding of Lutheran higher education and you r educational background prepared you ro be a uni­ versity presiden t? Loren And erson: The evolu tion of my career began when I was an undergrad­ uate student at Concordia College_ I learned there about Lutheran h igh er




educacion. B u c I didn'c really realize how special i t is until [ took my first ceach ing posicion at Wayne State U niversity in Detro i t in the early '70s. The dramatic contrast becween a small, undergraduate, l iberal arts, Lutheran institution and a large, u rban, com­ m uter, Ph.D. grancing, research-orient­ ed u niversity began to p u t my Concordia experience in perspeccive. I t convinced m e o f the value o f being a Lutheran u niversi ty, of being a primari­ ly undergraduate insti tution, and how important it is to focus on teaching rather than research. That experience brought me back to Lutheran h igher education. Then, after I returned to


Concordia as a faculty mem ber and ad m i nistrator, I too k a fai rly cradicional path chro ugh the rall ks-a pach chac even tually led me to PLU. Nordquist: Whac was you r perception o f PLU as you contemplated che posi­ tion in 1992 and after you arrived on the scene)

alumni magazllles fro m many schools and remember being i mpressed by Scene and the sense of energy and accivity thac seemed to surround PLU. [ also e ncountered people from PLU and found them to be u niversally optimistic and accive, che kind o f people who had a great deal of energy and a deep com­ m i tment to cheir un iversi ty.

Anderson: I had been i n Lucheran h igher educati o n for 20 years before I came to PLU and had always adm ired Pacific Lutheran. Loo king at PLU fro m a distance, I l o n g believed that i t was among che top insti tu tions both in the ALC and the ELCA. I regularly read

Nordqu ist: At your i nauguration you called on all those assemb led-and r suppose you m eant to i nclude all PLU graduates as wel l-to be the revol ution­ aries, the visio naries, che " s aga cre­ ators " o f tomorrow. What did you mean by chat?

A n d e rs on: Places l i ke PLU are wholly volumary emerprises. In our case i t all began 1 1 0 )/ears ago with five congrega­ tions and only 250 people who simply wem co work co create a ul1iversi cy. That spirit has con tin ued throughom our his tor)'. 50 universities such as PLU have been built, and are still carried forward, by this throng of believers-both visible and i nvisible-who contribute co the vision, C O the energy, and to the funding of the place. I t's in teresting co consider what moti­ vates people co serve in this way. I remem ber being imrigued by a publica­ tion called, "The Quest fo r a Viable 5nga," in which the author contended

that it is really the srory ohhe institu­ tion that motivates people. PLU's scory hasn't been easy and is as fascinating as any in Lutheran higher education-from the moose anders of the 1 890s, co the endowment d rive of the '20s, co the fi nancial crises of the '30s and the enrollment mel tdown during World War II. l:ven in the mid- 1 940s the question of PLU's fu ture was still on the table­ it's all of that biscory and drama that gives energy and spice to the PLU saga. Nordqu ist: When you arrived in 1 992, PLU had just com pleted a quite tri­ umphant centennial celebration that had appropriately focused on a wide

range of institutional and individual achievemems, but by 1 992 i t was clear that there were some serious enroll­ ment and financial problems that had to be addressed. How did the u niversity take on tbose tasks? And how difficult were the)'? A n d e rson: My direct encounter with PLU was a discovery of the rich ness of the institutional programs and mission and of the tre mendous h uman capaci­ cy. PLU, I judged i m mediately, was clearly an institution driven by those intangible qualities that made it a more vi tal, in teresti ng, and mu lti-di mension­ al enterprise than you could ever know

fro m a distance. I still fee l the same way. There i s a great reservo i r of s trength thar has been b u i l t over gener­ ations. And it may be that that strength comes in part because the insti tu tion b as experienced u ps and downs over tbe years. As you r question suggests, we did face some visible challenges i n '92: e n ro l lment was down. budgets were not always balanced. B u t I th i n k the tru l y remarkable story is t h e way everyone from the Board of Regents to the facu l · t y a n d s taff s te pped u p a n d collective ly addressed the p roblems. I f there is one realization I had at the time, whether conscious or just insti nctive, i t was that PLU faced a set of cballenges that no one person could resolve and that it reall y needed to be a collective e ffo rt, beginning witb a b road understanding o f the challenges we were facing. We had many meetings during my fi rst year where we i nvited every memo ber of the campus com m u n i ty to par· tici pate. The results were amazing. We quickly got beyond pointi ng fingers and wen t to work on solu tions. There was a candor presen t that h as l o ng been par t of how PLU works best. Nordquist: D uring your first year as p resident the i nstitu tion was also deeply i nvolved in attem p ting to d raft a new m ission statement (the current one was then 3 0 years o l d) . What did the com m u n i ty learn from that experience, and was i t b e neficial to tbe university) Anderson: It is sometimes hard to bel ieve that cod-liver oil is beneficial because it doesn't taste very good when i t is going down. Some of the conversa­ tion about our mission statement in the spring of 1993 had a cod·liver oil quality to i t. I t was heated and some­ what d ivisive. It wasn't m uch fu n . On the other hand i t was very i mportant to have the cen tral institu tional issue being d iscussed openly and construc­ tively. I think tbe com m ission tbat worked on tbe mission statemen t came up with an exce l lent proposal. It looks even better to me now than i t did 1 0 continued o n page 35

Residential Life Reflections: The rules have changed, but the goal of supporting students is the same II alumni who h ave served as a residence kdl (dormiwry) leader while at P LU are invi ted w a special reunion during Hom eco m i n g 2002. If you were a sru足 den t counselor, s taff member or hall govern mem leader, join the gathering. I n preparation fo r the reu nion, here's a look back at j ust a few of the ways on足 campus living has changed over the years. D uring th e 1 894-95 school year it was decided that students could not attend 22


dances. In Jan uary a scandal erupted after a p rank was carried out which was designed w lure a girl imo a boy's room where he was standing in only his unde rwear. This i ncident prompted the fo rmulation of the fi rst list of " rules " . 1.

Boys can 't go in gi rls' rooms and vice versa. 2. No l o afi n g in the k i tchen. 3. No loitering in the halls and stairwells.

Srudy hours have w be s pe n t i n your room 5 . No smoking by those under 17 and no smoking or chewing in the build ing.

Dorm life and the decor have c h anged greatly s i n c e t h e s e co-eds lived on c a m p u s in t h e e a r l y 1 900s.


In 1897- 1898 all students were requi red to be p resen t at the daily devo足 tional exercises in the chapel unless

excused by the President. Average expenses per sruden t for a year were $84.5 0 . $25 for tui tion, $48 fo r board, $8 for room, $ 3 for medical fee and a $ . 5 0 library fee. Laundry, books, and p aper wou ld be extra expenses; hence, all studen ts were encou raged w bri ng as many of their own books from home


they thought might be of some use.

By the 1 950s the rules had expanded so as to cover nearly every aspecc o f a Pacific Lutheran. University student. For exam p Ie, this section of the Scudent Handbook o u tlined a scu­ de� t's expecced dress: 1.

S mdems are expected to bc c1can. an.d n.eatly attired. nare feet arc allowed in private areas o f one's living q uarters o r at rec rc ­ fun.ction.s wh('l"c bare feet are ap pro p ria te 2. P h ys i cal ed ucation, lounging, beach atti re, or the l i ke is not allowed within the d i n i n g hall. 3 . Specific standards of dress may be req UJred in certain area�, at individ­ ua[ events or in the c lassroom by the i nd ividual i nstructor or profes­ sor. (Prior to this ti me the dress code required women to wear dresses to class and only wear sportswear on Friday afternoon and Saturday. All s m dems were req u i red to dress up for S u nday dinner.) 4. Formal attire must be worn at Artist Series and other p ublic fu nc­ tions un less otherwise designated. .

In 1 9 72, restrictions on student l i fe loosened dramati c al ly: two dormitories became coed, gi rls dormi t o ries restric­ tive h o u rs gave way t o more freedom to '

Students are expected to be clean and neatly attired. Bare feet are allowed only in private areas ofone )s living quarters or at recreational functions where bare feet are appropriate.

For the first 60 years, PLC/PLU was administered ch iefly by fou r people, the president, t h e dean of smdents, the dean of women and the dean of men. The dean of women and the dean of men positions have always been closely concerned wi th " smdem l i fe " .

From then on, the dormitories lVere referred to as residence halls and continue to this day to be a " ho m e away from bome" for Ill ZlJ1Y PLU students.

years ago because I think I understand PLU bener, and I u nderstand the con­ text,and the genesis of the statement. The continuing challenge for us is to express what it means to be a Lutheran university i n one or two sentences that are u nderstood by the b roader commu­ n i ty and adequate for L u th e rans who come from a wide range of theological perspectives. Given the breadth and rich­ ness of our Lu ther;]n trad i tion of educa­ tion, that is nOt easy. Yet it is slIch an i mportant convCl'sation that we repeat­ edly come back to it in many other con­ texts, and it is important that we do. N o rdquist: I ndeed, among the strengths the regenes, faculty and search co mmittee looked for in a new president in 1 99 2 were experience and sllccess i n development and long-range p l an n i ng. The process l eadi ng to a l o ng-ran ge p l an that u ltimately was called PLU 2000: Embracing th e 2 1 st Centu ry was launched in December of 1992-almost as soo n as you arrived-and received u nal approval in January 1995. What were i ts most important a,x ioms and i ni­ tiatives and how successful was it' A nd e rson: PLU 2000 is a remarkable story in part because in those years the u n iversity juggled an i m portant set of near-term issues whi le at the same time thinking i n bold terms about its long­ ra nge fmu re. That was a delicate bal­ ance to maintain and I t h i n k it is a trib­ ute to the com munity that b ot h were done wel l .

T h e p lan's uve foun dational axioms were the right ones: 1) i nvigorating the learning co mmun ity, 2) sustaining and u n di ng sustenance in our Lutheran heritage and tradition, 3) focusing on educating for lives of service, 4) com­ mining o u rselves to beco ming a more diverse co m m u n i ty, and 5) building fis­ cal i n tegrity.

tors, fo u n dations, candidares fo r posi­ tions-they all say that PLU 2000 is a very i m p ress ive report and that PLU is one of the few places they have seen rhat has developed a comprehensive long-range plan and actually i m ple­ mented it. Nordqu ist: A second plan called PLU

20 1 0: T h e Next Le vel o f Distinction is nearing completion. Can you p redict what its most i m portant e m phases will be and if any new directions will be charted ? Anderson: The key element of the 2 0 1 0 report will be the way it helps us focus on the fu ture of our academic programs: How do we strengthen our traditional academic cultu re? H ow do we advance the cause of i n ternational educarion? How do we work on student engagement in shaping their lea rn i ng experience? How do we continue to focus on et h i cs values and service? I expecr rhese will be the markers for whar we wan t to accomplish academi­ cally over the next 1 0 years. I believe they will also fo rm the foundation for a d ramatic breakth rough of our i nstitu­ tional re p u ta tion that wil l lead to a new, broad public recognition of what a truly remarkable and excellent place PLU has beco me. ,

Nord q u ist: \>:!hat have been the u niver­ sity'S most i mportant achievements i n fund-raising during the last decade and what still needs to be done' Anderson: The most i m portant achievement-one wi th long-term sig­ n i ficance fo r the future of the u niversi­ ty- has been members of the broad PLU constituency stepping up to s u p­ POrt o u r endowment. As a result, the endowment has increased over the past decade more than 5 00 percen t and planned, future gifts to the endowment have increased about 1 ,000 percent. The biggest challenge we face 111 the fund-raising area is what I call the revi­ talization of our schoolhouse, the maintenance and renovation o f our

We can all take great pride in looki n g back over 1 0 years a n d seeing the degree to which r h e u n iversity' s accom­ p l i s h me n ts f10w fro m PLU 2000. My basis fo r rhis j udgment is the coun tless people who come to visir us-acccredi-

campus fac i l iries Most of our campus was b uilt i n the '50s and '60s, so many of our buildings are now ready fo r revi­ talization. Among projects i n o u r cur­ ren t fu nd-raising cam paign are con­ struction of The Morken Cencer for .

Learn ing and Tec hnology and then the Easrvold renovation and expansion. B u t there is more on the horizon. The Hauge B uilding and the University Ce nter need work and many of o u r resi­ dence halls are o u t of date. So the capi­ tal appetite of o ur schoolhouse is going to be s i g n i ficant i n the coming years, and with the cOSts of construction such as they are, fu nding these projects will be a challenge. N o rd q u ist: PLU h as made some signif­ icant advances in in ternational educa­ tion in the last decade. The new Wang Center fo r I n ternational Programs wil l undou btedly accelerate that i nstitu­ tional e m �,hasis. How lInportant and ap propriate is it fo r PLU to be a major p layer among Lucheran and Northwest i nstitutions in i n ternat i o nal educarion and scho la rs h i p? Anderson :

The evolucion of PLU as an u niversity is a vcry i n teresting case srudy. So much of i t has happened without an orches trat­ ed plan. I nstead, by vi rtue of the faClllty that have been h i red, the p rogram interests that have been developed, and our location on the Paciuc Ri m, sud­ denly we' re recognized as among the leaders in i nternational education. Now, through the generosity of Peter and G race Wang, we have taken anoth­ er m ajor step. The excitement is that not only is our repu tarion for i n ternational education begi n n i ng co emerge, but we also und ou rselves co mpeti tively placed as one of JUSt a handful of undergraduate insti­ tu tions i n the country that have sign i fi­ cant, substan tive i nternational pro­ grams throughout the curriculum. The events of the last year have reinforced the i m portance of this focus. It is an essential pare of who we've become and where we need co go. i nt erna tio n ally focused

d iverse community. The challenge fo r us is how a com munity that comes out of a particular trad i tion becomes wel­ co m ing and e m b racing to other tradi­ tions without losing a sense of who we are. That's a tension we fee l today and will and must continue to fee l . And the fact is t h a t t h e nation's uni­ versity campuses are probably more diverse than any other communities in our coun try. Th e campus has beco m e the real melting p o t . H e re is where peo­ p le of different backgro u nds and tradi­ tions and beliefs are coming together in mutual respect and understand ing. It is one of the key roles h igher education is serving in our society, and I am pleased that PLU is playi ng a part.

I n ter-tribal violence contin ued ro pl;rgue Central Africa. And the Palestinians' catastrophic second i ntifa­ da effectively destroyed the Middle Eastern peace process. But Sept. 1 1 does not mark the end of " l i be ral convergence," either as an actual process, or as a com pass for American foreign policy. I t is not, as is sometimes suggested, a Western conceit ro claim that the good l i fe is best achieved through popu larl)1 account­ able government, the rule o f law, and­ social ly-regulated free markets. The conceit l ies i n assu ming that the West has some p ro p rietary rights over these ideas. In reali ty, the developing world has nO shortage of people willing to risk everything ro achieve democrac), and human rights in their countries. B u t the pathologies that th reaten world order - in ter-com m u nal violence, abject poverty, i l l iteracy, and M althusian pop­ ulation pressures - are endemic to those parts of the world where secu lar rationalism has not yet establ ished i tself. And so it remains the enlight­ ened self-interest of the existing wealthy democracies to promote and cu ltivate democracy and economic developmen t at every pracrical oppor­ tunity. I n the immediate aftermath of Sept. J I, the anti-ten-orist offensive necessar­ ily came to dominate Ame rican foreign policy. On l), a com mitted pacifist could deny that the U n i ted States was right ro prosecute a war agai n s t an enemy that had killed more Americans in a single day than at an)' time since the Battle of An tietam i n Sept. 1862. But over 80 nationalities were represented among the d ead in the World Trade Center. The war on terrorism is not America's fight alone. O rdinary Americans h ave p roven themselves well deserving of the out­ pouring of i nternational sympathy post-Sept. 1 1 . To the i r eternal credit, they have refused ro live under the "someth i ng wicked this way comes" paranoia hoped for b), al-Qaeda., and the terrorist attacks did not even have the antici pated lasting im pact on the American economy.

may well have done more damage ro the srock market than Osama bin Lad en. The B ush ad m i nistration conducted the war agai nst the Taliban with effi­ ciency and reso l u tion, and also wi th serious efforts ro m i n i mize the no netheless inevitable civilian casual­ ties. The war's i n tended deterren t effect has been seen in the public denuncia­ tions of terrorism by states like Libya, Syria, and Somalia. And the deploy­ ment of anti-terrorist advisers in the P h i lippines and the fo rmer Soviet republic of Georgia is a logical exten­ sion of the adm i n istration's policies. Terrorism has lost what the novelist Tom \1(101fe called "radical ch ic," as IS shown by the I RA's recent apology for thirty years of civilian casualties, and the dryi ng u p of the o rganization's funding.

Ordinary Americans have proven themselves well deserving ofthe outpouring of international sympathy post­ Sept.

1 1.

To their eternal

credit, they have refused to live

under the "something wicked this way comes " paranoia hoped for by al-Qaeda. There have, of course, been the pre­ d i ctable objections that the U n i ted S tates has itself promoted terrorism i n the pas t (e.g. against the Soviets I n Afghan istan, and the Sandi n istas i n N icaragua), a n d that it is has enlisted oppress ive regimes (including reac­ tionary Islamic ones) in its pursuit of the Sept. 1 1 terrorists. But i nternation­ al poli tics is an arena in which moral consistenC)' is precl uded by power­ pol itical realities that can not be simply wished awa)'. Winston C h u rchill once confessed that "If H i tler i nvaded H ell I would at least make a favorable reference to the Devi l in

the House of Commons." Ulti mately, wars are ro be j udged by their resu lts. Followi ng the recent loya j i rga, terro rist cells have been dispersed and Afghanistan has i ts best p rospects in decades for i n ternal peace and stabil­ i ty. B u r the Afghan war was only the beginning of a campaign against terror­ ism that will depend less on direct mili­ tary engagement than on m ultilateral cooperati on. This will requ i re the long­ term mai n tenance of the new anti-ter­ rorist coal i tion. But that coalition is already u nder some strain. Key allies, such as Canada and Spain, are reluctant to extradite terrorist sus­ pects to the U n i ted States because of the persistence of the death penalty, the prospect of military tribunals, the fed­ eral violation of suspects' civil liberties, and the h ighly questionable legal status of Camp X-Ray in Guan tanamo. The coalition is also jeopardized by the Bush ad m ini stration's instincrive u n i lateralism. It has rejected the Kyoro Treaty and the International Crim inal Court, with the m i n i m u m of rationali­ zation. It has set conditions for fu ture negotiations over Palestine, and threat­ ened war agai nst Iraq, without consult­ ing other key players. And, i n con tra­ diction to its stated free trade i deology, tbe U n i ted States has protected its steel and l umber industries, and lavishly s ubsidized its domestic agriculture. As H arvard's Professor Joseph Nye has recen tly pointed out, the "war on terror" illus trates a paradox: in a world of complex in terdependence, Ameri ca may undermine its own in terests when it pursues those i nterests in ways that alienate actual and potential allies. When Ameri ca f1aunts its abilit), to compel, i t risks diminishing its ability to persuade. The existing and emerging democratic world will welcome the leadersh i p of the United States. Bur i t will reject a n d res ist American domma­ tion, and the el1suing divisions could seriously weaken the democratic wo rld in relation ro its enemies. [§J

bJ' Peter Grosvenor h e e n d o f the Cold War triggered an energetic debate about the s tructure of i n ternational relations and ut the place of the U n i ted States with i n it. Over the course of the 90s a wave of democratization spread thro ugh the fo rmer Soviet U n i o n and its collapsed Eastern E u ropean empire; the South African apartheid regime fel l; the military ju nta disappeared from La.ti n American politics; and p ro­ democracy movements appeared in C h ina and across Asia. An American­ led i n te rnational coalition reversed the

1raqi invasion of Kuwait. H uman rights began (0 tru m p s tate sovereignty, as demonstrated by the NATO i n terven­ tion i n Kosovo, by Australia's venture i n to East Timor, and by the emergence o f an Internatio nal Crim i nal Court. Some observers p redicted a "liberal convergence" that offered the pros peer of a sustained "democratic peace," In this analysis, the p rotection and p romotion of democracy around the world was i n the i n terests of both the U n i ted States and the wo rld community as a whole.

The s c u l pture in honor of J i m Hol loway is entitled, "Exc e l l e n c e , " and d e picts his m a n y p a ssions.

Sculpture dedicated in memory ofJim Holloway scul p ru re in honor of the late jim H o lloway now stands out­ side the lvlary Baker Russell m usic b u i lding. The scu lpture, designed by Kathryn S parks, cu rator for visual arts at PLU, was ded ica ted in Ocrober. Kathryn and her husband, D ick, former director of c horal activi ties at PLU, were good friends witb Holloway and his wife, judy Carr. Sparks designed the piece i n H olloway'S memory based on artwork she did for the invitatjon to j i m and judy's weddi ng. Sparks b rings her close friends h i p and respect for his artistry to the tree-shaped sculpture. It depicts the l i fe o f a b ri lliant and caring teacher, an inspiring colleague, a trusted friend and a great and gifted servant. Beyond that, Sparks wanted her m e tal and glass scul pture on a brick base to show H o lloway'S many loves, which ranged from music and cooking to fam ily an d the Lord. Holloway, who was k illed May 17, 200 1 , was an assista n t ptofessor of music and un iversity organist.


ompelling speakers on topics ranging fro m landmines to the Holocaust drew crowds to the 2002 Fall Lecture Series. Susannah H esche! of Dartmouth College opened the series with her pres­ emarion, "The Fail u re o f D ialogue: jewish-Ch ristian Relations from the jewish Poi n t of View." Her lecture was also the ann ual Raphael Lemkin lec­ ture, presemed annua lly on a topic relating to genocide, and the keynote address for an lllternational Holocaust conference held o n campus in late September. Gordon Lathrop, professor of liturgy at the Lutheran Theological Seminary of Philadelphia and former PLU cam­ pLlS pastor, presen ted the Lutheran Heri tage Lecture with his talk, "Do Not Harm the Trees: The Ritual Care of the Earth." Per Lonning, retired bishop o f Bergen, No rway and a m e m b e r o f the Norwegian Parliament, presen ted "Betvveen Fundamentalism and Relativism."

N An extraordinary wi tness to modern Chinese h isto ry, visiting pro fessor Sidney llittenberg presented "Whi ther China," d rawing on his experiences l iv­ ing in China fo r 35 years after the Revolution o f 1 949. Lectures o rganized as part of a series s ponsored by the Students of Peace wo rking group and the Wang Cente r for Imernational Programs also were included in the s eries. Panel p resema­ tions and d iscLlssions were held on "Iraq: The H uman Costs o f Sanctions" and " Landmi nes: The H u man CostS of War."

For PLU s tudents i t all begins with the f i rs t-Year Experience. Lamoreaux is d i rector o f the program that includes a writing seminar and an inquiry semi nar tbat are req u ired o f all first-year stu­ den ts. Smal l classes are designed to hel P studen ts make the transi tion to college. level academics. Taught by a wide variety o f faculty, the writing sem inars focus on writing as a way o f thinking, learning and o rgan izing ideas. "They help s tuden ts learn the s k i l ls necessary to be a better wri ter, i n q u i rer and critical thinker in college," Lamoreaux said. The sem inars focus on engaging ro p-



tion," said Campbell, who i s professor nf English at PLU. The second set o f first-year sem inars, known as inquiry seminars, i ntroduce students to the methods and to pics of study within a particular academic dis­ ci pline. " I t's a taste of academics fro m t h e heart o f a d iscipline a n d a transi­ tion to the courses students wil l take in fu l fi l ling their core and major requ i re­ ments," Lamoreaux said. Students learn how critical ref1ection functions i n an academic field, they p ractice the skills of critical reading and effective commun ication, and they learn how to work in an academic group.

Acco rding to Lamoreaux, the new program that used to be k nown as the F reshman Experience is already evolv­ i ng. "It's l ikely that the F i rs t-Year Experience p rogram wi l l become more closely affi l i ated with Quest, tbe year­ long o rien tation program run by the office o f Student Life," h e said (see story page 4) .

International scholars debate complex questions about origins of the Holocaust istinguished scholars from around the world debated how different religions view Jews and whether their early teachings played a role in the H olocaust - at an i n ternational conference on campus i n late September. The conference, "Christian Teach ings About Jews: National Comparisons i n the Shadow o f the H olocaust," drew scholars from as far as G ermany, Poland and Israel . "This is the fi rst time that these peop le have all come together in the Pacific Northwest," said Robert Ericksen, PLU professor o f h is­ tory who organized the conference. Part of thei r plan was to determine which portions o f the Christian tradi­ tion - i f any - might b ave contri b u ted to the violence and the hatred o f the Holocaust, Ericksen said. Ericksen is an acclaimed authority on the Holocaust and has au thored seve tal books about the Protestant Ch urch and the Nazis. The conference incl uded panels on topics s uch as "Memories A bout Christian Atti tudes Toward Jews: S urvivors S peak," and "An ti-Semitism and the Vatican: A Postscripr." Dr. S usannah H eschel, who holds the Eli Black C hair i n Jewi s h Studies at Dartmouth College, gave the keynote address, "The Fai l u re of D i alogue:

KPLU FACTS Among the awards the station has won are the Marconi Award of Excellence from the National Association of Broad casters. It was the first time a public radio station received the nationa l award. Other honors include Gavin Awards for the Top Jazz S1ation In the country four times. Program Director Joey Cohn has twice been named G avin's Jazz Radio Person of the Year, and the American Marketing Association named General Manager Martin Neeb to the Media Hall of Fame as the Radio Person of the Year. The news department won a national Edward R. Murrow journalism award for a documentary by reporter Keith Seinfefd on the controversial Makah Whale Hunt. The station consistently wins regional journal­ ism awards for its news coverage. KPlU started as a tiny station in 1 966 broadcast only to PlU and Parkland. The station expanded to more of Pierce County in 1 972 but really took off in 1 980, when it acquired a new tower allowing it to broad­ cast at 1 00,000 watts. Moving the transmit­ ter to Tiger Mou ntain outside Issaquah, Wash., in 1 989 expanded the coverage area even more. It became an NPR station in

1 983 and changed its format from classical to jazz the same year.

focus is for the jazz ro sound melodic," Cohn said.

A lot of work goes i nro selecting the music, and KPLU keeps the standard h i ts playing while being at the forefro nt of fi nding new talent. "We have a new music rota tion, so you'll hear a certain nu mber of new songs throughout the day," Morrison said. Morrison, sometimes with the help of Cohn and other hosts, goes through hun­ dreds of CDs. He estimates he receives 30-50 every week from artists and record companies, and he gives each at least a listen, hoping

Public radio requires public support In order ro do all this, the station depends on support from l i s teners. KPLU runs on a $4 m i llion annual b udget, with $3.5 m illion coming fro m the com m u n i ty. O f that, $2.3 m il lion came directly from l i s teners t h i s year, a n d $ 1 . 2 m i llion fro m u nderwri ting - support from corporate donors. Regular fund drives, i n which donors are u rged over the air to give during dedicated weeks, bring i n many of the dollars, and special events - l i ke the popular Jazz Cruises on Puget Sound - make u p the rest o f the budget.

University and station support each other \Vhik PLU holds the license tor the radi o station and all KPLU s taff members are also u niversi ty e m p loyees, the station operates nearly independen dy. PLU s u p足 ports the station wi th i n frastructure, allowing i t ro operate without any daily over足 head, but the station is o therwise self-supporting. "The infrastructure is provided by the university, and that i s a great gift," Neeb said. Both entities have s igned an edirorial i n tegrity statement, so the station holds au thority over what i t broadcasts and how it portrays stories, without i n terference from the university. KPLU also has a com m i tment ro PLU students, and has e m ployed dozens over the years. The station has becom e home ro several PLU alums and has helped launch the broadcast careers o f many PLU graduates. Years ago, Cohn started an overnight shift for a student that continues roday. Assistant S tation Manager Swanson started work at KPLU as a student i n 1 985 and worked his way up the ranks over the years. He serves as adviser ro the student station KCCR/ K 1 03 , and has recru i ted talent fro m there to KPLU. O ther graduates who s tayed on at KPLU include evening jazz host Abe Beeson '93 and Craig Coovert '00, who m anages \X!eb resources.

Olgl and Clarence Grahn

Estate planning builds legacies iving to PLU through estate planning is one way s upporters help university funds g row, Olga Grah n and her husba nd. Clarence, early leaders in

Q Club, truly set a trend as they established one of

the first charitable trusts at PLU in

1 977,

Their two daughters and numerous grandch i l d ren attended PLU. so they knew the importance of education and made provisions for the university in their estates, Clarence died in

1 985, and Olga

remained a dedicated donor to the un iversity until her


death in July, Gertrude Tingelstad

'39 is another shining example of

providing for PLU even after her death, An em ployee of the PLU library. Tingelstad came from a strong PLU family including her uncle, Oscar A, Tingelstad. who was the university president from

1 928 to 1 943, Two funds were

G raduate's passion lives on through i nternat ional schola rs hip


fter Nancy Meader 79 died i n November

2000, h e r parents

wan ted to ensure that her memory lived on, 50 they created the Nancy Meader International Scholarship, Shortly after she

graduated, Nancy earned a master's degree i n developmental psychology from the U n iversity of Manchester (England) as a Rotary Scholar, She was a manager of training at the U.S, Environmental Training Institute, a member of the Friends of the National Sym phony Orchestra and the National Presbyterian C h u rch in Was h i ngton, D.c, and she volunteered with Habitat for Human ity, Nancy's international ties and interests i n s p i red her parents, Bob and Delores Meader,"As time passed we realized that's how we would want to make a permanent remembrance to Nancy," Delores said, The Office of Development at PLU was invaluable i n connecting the family with the Wang Center as part of the scholarship and making the process simple. "We are quietly pleased, grateful," she said, Not only is the memorial a way to honor their daughter, the Meaders feel strongly about investing in the future, "I nvesting in young people is the best use of resou rces you can make," Bob Meader said.

Wo ma n's gift g u ides scholars through the sciences


LU students headed for careers in science spend a great deal of time researching and preparing for grad uate study in their field of interest. One PLU donor hopes her recent contribution will

encourage those research pursuits, Anna Cary, a local woman who now resides at Tacoma Lutheran Home, gave an essential gift to fulfill a chal lenge grant from the M.J, M u rdock Charitable Trust fo r the Natural Sciences Research Endowment, The fund provides ded icated students and faculty with valuable dollars that aid in their summe r projects, Cary appreciates what PLU has done as an in stitution and is impressed with its grad uates. When her daughter Helen, a medical tech nologist, died, the elder Cary wanted to find a way to support the field of medicine in honor of her daughter, The money she gave to the challenge now makes up a scholarship for a ju n i o r o r senior student pursuing a career in medicine,

Fifty people were in attendance at the presentation held at Messiah Lutheran Ch urch in Auburn, \1;1ash. One 'Neck later, at the second install­ ment o f the lecture series, tbe sanctuary was fi l led with 400 people.

The benefits of fo llowing Islam are many, he said, and what he finds to be especially hel pful is how his religion answers all of his questions, provides structure in his l i fe and establishes guideli nes fo r how to live. "It teaches you how to deal with people in l i fe and in business, and how to treat your fam ily," Amiri said. A miri considers one of the main d i fferences between Islam and C h ristianity to be the regard o fJesus Christ. He explained that Islam respects a number of p rophets, one of whom i s Jesus. Muslims do not believe that Jesus was the Son of C,od, or that he was crucifi ed . W h a t M us l i m s do believe is outl ined i n the Five Pi llars, the set of beliefs that defines M us l i m thought and cul ture. The first is the declaration of faith stating that there is one God (Allah) and that M uhammad is his prophet. The second p i l lar calls for Mus lims to offer p rayers at five compulsory daily prayer times and Sawm, the fasting from dawn to dusk every day duri ng the month of Ramadan, is the third pillar.

M a x i n e Hong K i n g st o n

Acclaimed author Maxine Hong Kingston brings poetic gift to PLU cclaimed author Maxine Hong Ki ngston talked about her search for poetry and peace d uring a visit to PLU. Ki ngston is best known for her novel "The Woman \Varrior: Memoirs of a Gi rlhood Among Gh osts," which chronicles Chinese myths, family sto­ ries and events from her California childhood that have shaped her identi­ ty as a first generation Chi nese American. Kingsron finds herse lf creat­ ing her own srories by fi lling in the blanks her mo[her left. The book won the National Book Critics C i rcle Award and was named one of Time Magazine'S to p nonfiction books o f the 1 970s. Ki ngston, also wrote the award -winning novels "Ch ina Men" and "Tripmaster Monkey." PLU English professor Lisa Marclls is one of several professors who teach Kingsron in the classroom, and consid­ ers her "one of the most i mportant writ­ ers of the last three decades." While at PLU, Ki.ngsron discussed everything from Chinese-American cul­ ture to creative writing ro making peace. Kingston said she is excited by PLU's

Wang Center fo r I n ternational Programs, especially PLU's Peace Studies classes and the Peace Studies Working Group. " [ think it is absol ute­ ly wonderful," she said. "Learning abou t peace i n the classroom is the first step. I hope the process will create PLU students who will write the peace works of the fu ture." Kingston's latest work, "The Fifth Book of Peace," has taken an extraordi­ nary jou rney. Traced all the way back ro the late 1 980s, it all began with a rumor she heard regardi ng three lost books of peace i n China. She hoped ro track them down to " balance the dam­ age" done by Sun-Tzu's famous book "The Art of\Var." After years of research in China, she wrote her fictional book of peace, only to see i t destroyed in the 1 9 9 1 Oa kland Hi lls fi re. After that, she wrote an entirely new book-this time non-fic­ tion and personal-reflecting on her ideas on ending conflict and her CO I11ing to terms with the Vietnam War. Wriring an almost 800-page peace work of her own revealed changes about her future as a writer. "At that point, I wanted to be socially i rresponsible," she said with a smile. " [ wanted t o write as [ did a s a c h i ld, about my fecli ngs, my inside." To do that, Kingston turned to poetry.

The result was the rece ntly released "To Be the Poet," in which Kingston chronicles her attempts to adopt " the life of the poet," and i n later sections shares her poems. Kingston, who is also a creative writ­ ing professor at the University of California, Berkeley, wants to continue shaking up how college students are taught creative writing. Ki ngston does­ n't back away from her 1 970s statement that col.lege interfered with her creativi­ ty. "Creative writing is a seed , it mustn't be criticized right away," Ki ngston said. " College writing has to be abou t build­ ing a supportive com munity of writ­ ers." In her own Berkeley classroom, she takes time out for activities like meditation, which helps her students move from a "rational to an imagina­ tive state." At a campus reading and discussion, she encou raged all to participate i n her favorite fo rm, the shorr poem. Kingsron, PLU students and faculty shared their immediate responses, with everything from the i nspirational, ("Desire never says enough,") to the political, ("Inspections, Not WaL") "That is what I love ab out poetry, both the d iscovery and response are im mediate," Ki ngston said. "It is a gift." By Drew Brown

When Karla Nelson decided co work for social Justice as a member o f the Lutheran Vol u n teer Corps, she didn't know that could mean s i mply com fo rt­ ing a toddler. But caring for these deli­ cate children - reading co them, taking them outside to p lay, mak i ng s u re the)1 get a home-cooked meal - i s i mportant work, and Nelson looks at the opportu­ nity as a blessing. " [ d idn't want a no rmal job, and I l i ked the idea of sustainable l iving," said Nelson, a 2002 graduate of GUStaVllS Adolphus College in St. Petcr, M inn. She i s one of six l11l"m bel'S of the Lutheran Vol unteer Corps based in Tacoma. She works at First Place fo r C hildren's down town clay care center. Many of the children there have great needs. A l l are f!'Om low-income fam i lies. Some have been neglected or abused . " Fo r some of these kids, we are their stable place," said Becky (Hucko '79) Fontai ne. " Fo r others, we are the p lace they get fed . " Fon taine is t h e executive dircccor o f F i rst Place for Chil d ren, which p rovides day care, parenting services and other resou rces to low-income children at six s i te.� in the Tacoma a rea, i ncluding PLU's East Campus. F i rst Place cares

for 232 children every day, rang1l1g i n age from fou r weeks c o five years. Fontaine wanted to become i nvolved with LVC because of the benefit to both her agency and rhe communiry. "The staff at rhe center downtown would say they don't k now what they'd d o wirhout Karla," Fontaine said. "She is really an i ntegral parr o f that center." This is just o ne example of how Lutheran Vol u nteer Corps i s reac h i ng out to the community. Many alumni IVork to make the program a success i n Tacoma. And so far, 1 6 PLU gtads have joined LVC in other cities. Vol u n teers com m i t to a year o f work­ ing for social Justice, living i n i n ten­ tio nal com m u n i ty and simpl ified l iv­ ing. In Taco ma, that means sharing a house with five people and living on a meager stipend. Thei r rent is su bsi­ dized by the agencies they give their time to. Vol unteers do not h ave to be Lutheran. " I t's a great service to the com munity in all area that's fighting to keep its head above water," said Lois Bekemeicr '82, one of the founding members of the local support commi tcee that brought LVC to Seactic and Tacoma in 1 995 and '96. Bekemeicr's husband, Luther, was vice president for develop­ ment fto m 1 976 to 1 992 and also serves on the local support com mitcee.

salmon runs in the Nisqually River delta By Drew Brown




DELTA, CONVERTING IT TO ITS PRISTINE STATE AS A SALT MARS H ESTUARY. IN T I M E, THE (TOP) JEANETTE DORNER '94, Salmon recovery program manager, and Florian Leischner, a salmon recovery and restoration biologist, survey the project area.

The green

vegetation to the right is part of the previously existing salt marsh estuary.


Dorner i s the salmon recovery p rogram manager for the Nisqually Indian Tribe. Her job is to restore and protect salmon habitat all along the Nisqually River corridor, fro m Mt. Rainier to Puget Sound. The work is supported by grams, pri ncipally fro m the federal government. "The river has been a tribal cul tu raL resou rce for thousands of years," Dorner said. "The tri be has success足 fully protected i ts legal right u nder treaty [0 fish in the Northwest. Now we are restoring this watershed to ensure that there will be salmon p lentifu l enough to fish today and i n fmu re generations." Dorner h as managed clean-up and natu ral vegetation restoration projects o n the banks of the Nisqually and its tribu taries . H e r biggest und ertaking has been the restoration of a portion o f the delta on tribal property, near the conf1uence o f the N isqually, Red Salmon Creek and the southern end o f Puget Sound. The land is adJdcen t to The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Nisqually Delta Refuge. Over the pas t cen c u ry, the overall area and quality of the natural wetlands at Nisqually has been compro足 mised by the construction o f a series of dikes designed to make the land sui table for farming by b locking the ebb and f10w of water.

Does China threaten us ? A

Does Chi na Threaten U ? Some analysts have not tired of seei ng

China and the Chinese as a "threar" ro America and American in teresrs.

The racist "Yellow Peril" of rhe 1 9 th and early 20th centuries blended half a century ago with rhe " Red Menace" of comlllunism to create a fearful bogeyman that bedeviled Chinese-American relarions for decades. Then, wirh the collapse of rhe Sovier Union, some of these analysts have rushed in to warn us that China should be our new "number one enemy." For a decade and more we have rhus bccn hearing about "the C h i na Threat." In 1 992, Ross Munro of the Ccnter for Secu rity Stud ies wrore how China was a real menace to rhe United Stares, and others soon joined rhe chorus. China, we were told, was an econo m ic threat, a m i l i rary threar, a political adver­ sary. Its ro busr economy borh threarened our global econom ic sranding and bankrolled aggressive C h i nese milirary moves rhroughour Asia. George W. Bush picked up the rheme when he declared during rhe 2000 presidential campaign rhat China would no lo n ge r be co nsidered i n his ad min istration a strategic partner o f the

USA (as it had been for over a decade), but our compemor.

Economic Powerhouse Having emerged from rhe orchodox com­ munism of the Mao years, China embarked in the 1 980s on a policy of "marker soci'll­ ism" chat dismancled the economically stag­ nating co mmu nes and rerurned land ro individual households. This unleashed a wavc of prosperity thar washed over many rural communities and created a m i ni-boom in the co untryside, which, in rurn, provided the cash and rhe labor for a spurt i n local industries. From rhere it was an expanding circle of

glo bal competition. on rhe Chinese domestic marker - induced by China's entry into the World Trade Organiz<,tion - mcan rhat unemployment levels and a slew of bankrup r ­ cies of stare-owned businesses will co m i n uc co cloud China's otherwise rosy economic scenc. And large numbers of people out of work and, perhaps for the fi rst time in their lives, not supported by a robust social ben e fi t s system raises the specrer of social instab ility.

of private sector expansion. "Getting rich was glorious," declared China's foremosr leader of the time, Deng Xiaopi ng, and year after year the Chinese economy grew.

Awakening Dragon ?

Now 20 years on, the world is witnessing one of hisrory's most susta.i ned economic expansions that h as lined hundreds of mil­ l ions of Chinese out of poverty. B e i n g the world's fasrest-growing economy fo r twO decades running, averaging a 9 percent annual growth rare, is no mean feat. B y lasr year, China led the world as a destination for foreign investment and had the world's seco nd-largest foreign currency reserve ar US$280 billion. Bur does China doing well economically make ir a threar to us? Unl i kely. For all irs rapid g rowth, China's share of world trade is only around 4 percent - about the same as Iraly's. And we should consider the grear benefits of China's growth: mil lions of con­ sumers in other countries are gaining from the low prices and high qu al iC)' of Chinese goods and businesses across the globe are profiting from supplying a vast new market. Especially when ocher economies are stutter­ ing, China's contribution to world market demand is vital. Some analysts see a slowdown in China's mid-range furure. The transi tion to a ful l marker econom y and the challenges o f

Chinese econom y grew.

Just using rhe image of t h e powerful d rag­ on awakening evokes a negative i m age in the Am er i ca n m i nd. Whereas dra gon s arC' posi­ tive and powerful symbob o f ru lers and the heavens in rhe Chinese cosm ol ogy, r()r Westerners dragons arc [0 be feared, loathed and slain.

Women's basketball team enjoys remarkable turnaround i nce PLU made a move to the National Collegiate Ath letic Association at the start of the 1 99 8-99 scbool year, few Lute athletic team s have e njoyed the success experi­ enced by the wom en's basketball team. A scant decade ago the Paci fic Lutheran women cagers finished with only two wins in 24 games. Seven sea­ sons ago PLU was 1 7-9, only the second winning record in the p revious 1 5 sea­ sons. At that poin t, Gil Rigell took over the p rogram, and the results have been unde niably remarkable. In h is first season, 1 997-98, Rigell ied the Lutes to a 2 1 -7 record and their mi­ tial Northwest Conference champi­ onship. The team lost in the fi rst round o f the National Association of in tercollegiate Athletics national tour­ nament, but the grou n dwork was clear­ ly in place for PLU's j u m p to NCAA D ivision JlI status. In the past five years the PLU wo men's basketball team has won rhe

I n fou r NCAA tournament appearances the Lutes have twice reached the Elite Eight, once the Sweet 1 6, and the other time lost in the sec­ ond round. Pacific Lutheran has com­ piled a 7-4 overall record in i ts four NCAA tournamenr appearances. ror a p rogram that 10 years ago s truggled to win a s i ngle game, the tu rnaround has been outstanding. Rige l l came to PLU in J 995 as a s tudent, after earn i n g his associate's degree at Green River College and coach ing basketball and tennis for sev­ eral years at Lakes High School. As a 3 2 -year-o l d , Rigell com­ piled a 9-0 s i ngles record while playing for the J 996 PLU men's tennis team. The next fall, he became an assistant coach for the wo men 's basketball program. One year later he took over as the head coach, and in each of the next six sea­ sons the Lutes won at least 20 games. The h ighlight was the 200 1 -02 team that won a school record 23 games b e fore losing in an El i te Eight game to

eventual national champion Wisconsin­ Stevens Poi nt. The six straight 20-win seasons is particularly noteworthy because nevn before in the h i story of rhe PLU women's basketball p rogram had any team enjoyed a 20-win season. RigeU has a 1 27-37 win- loss record, a .774 winning percentage. H e ranks among the national leaders in D ivision LII for winning percentage by a coach. His coach ing job this past season may have been his best, and the Lutes played their best basketball o f the season when i t mattered most. They advanced all the way to the Sweet 1 6. After fill ish i llg sec­ ond d u ring the Northwest Conference season, PLU beat Puget Sound at home and regular season cham pion \,(!h itworth in Spokane ro earn the con­ ference's automa,[ic berth in the nation­ a l tournament. Afrer a fi rs t round bye, the Lutes beat Gustavus Adolphus (Min n.), 68-54, at home, in the second round of the NCAA playoffs. The Lutes then traveled ro Wisconsin, where for the second straight year they were eliminated from the tour­ nament. This time, No. I-ranked Wisconsin-Eau Claire scored a llasket with 3.2 seconds left ro hold off the u n ranked Lures, 43-4 1 . "We had our chances. We had good looks throughout the game, the kind of shots that we've been making in recent games, but we d idn't put them down," said Rigell. "Bur they battled, roo. They were tough." Head c o a c h G i l

R i g e l l i s c redited with tu r n i n g the tea m around and h a s a .774 winning perc entage.

The p revious season, the Lutes lost thei r top three players in al l-con ference honorees Becky Franza '02, Jessica Iserman '02 and Jamie Keatts '02. The returnees rep rese nt only 3 1 p e rce nt of scoring and 35 percent of rebounding frQm the 200 1 -02 conference champi­ onship team. Rigell built the team around (WO vet­ eran p layers, 5-8 senior H ilary Berg '03 and 6-3 junior Courtney Joh nson '04. Berg was the team's "spiritual" leader who played each game with fierce deter­ m i nation. Johnson was a pivotal per­ former on oftense, leading the Lutes with 1 1 points per game, and on defense where she finished among the national leaders by averagi ng nearly 4.5 blocks per game. She received fi rst team AIl-Northwest Conference recognition. Sophomore S hannon Hayes 'OS, a returning starter, improved on offense and generally drew the assignment of stopping th e opponents' top scorer. Aundi Kustura 'OS recovered from a foot injury to average 7.7 points per game. Then there were the newcomers. M aUory Mann '06, a freshman from Co nway, Ark., replaced Franza at point guard and had a stellar fi rst season with averages of 5.6 points and 4,5 assists per contest. "Mallory'S poise and great court awareness played a key role for us making the national tour­ nament," Rige l l said. Freshman Kelly Tu rner '06 fi n ished second in the nation i n three-point shooting percentage (48 percent) and earned second team All-Northwest Confel'ence honors, and freshman Anna Sricklin '06 led the Lutes in sco ring i n several late-season games. Transfers Pam isaacson '06 and Sara Wilcox 'OS were key contributors off the bench. " G i l has done a good Job as coach of the wo men's basketball team," said PLU A thletic D i recto r Paul H osech. "To take a young team such a l o ng way in the national tournament is indica­ tive o f his coaching ability." The good news abo ut the 2002-03 PLU women's basketball team, besides a trip to the Sweet 16 and a 2 1 -8 final record , is that the team loses only o ne player, senior H i lary Berg. " I t's so darn tough getting out of our co nference," said Rigell, "that we like O ll r chances once we get OLlt. \X1e're right there, wc're k nocking on the door." B)' Nick Duw.\on

s a PLU srudene, Camero n Clark brought popular acts i ncluding Kenny G and the '80s band Toro to campus. In graduate school at the U nIvers i ty of Redlands, he booked J e rry Sei n feld for a comedy s how and Mario Cuomo for a lecture. And today, as a p ro fessional eve n t ptoducer, h e p u ts big-name acts like B.B.

«Music is therapy. » B u t the most i m po rtant venue Clark '88 wanes to fil l is a chemotherapy room at a Bend cancer clin ic. After a grueling regimen o f chemotherapy halt­ ed his tes ticular cancer, Clark has an even greater appreciation for the arts and is compelled to share h i s joy. "Music is therapy," he said. He has launched Project Art Infusion, which h e will use to b ring art and m usic i n to the lives of cancer patien ts. Donations will pay for artwork for the walls of the chemotherapy room , per­ formers to play while patien ts are hav­ i n g chemo, a PA system to broadcast recorded music and comfo rtable chairs for family and friends to sit i n whi l e keepi ng patie n ts company. He also plans to connect patients with men tors who h ave been through treatment, to s up port them along the way. "The first tim e I walked i n to t h e (hemo room, I was shocked at how m uch i t fel t like a morgue," said Clark, who was diagnosed in February 2002 and experienced month s o f debili tating treatment. "I figure i f you're going to s i t a n d p oison people through a tube, s u r­ rou n d them with l i fe - give them a rea­ son to live."
