Summer upgrades keep campus on the high-tech front line he information superhighway cut through the middle of cam­ pus this summer, in the form of a 5 -foot-deep trench from Morrvedt Library to lower cam pus and the new Mo rken Center fo r Learn ing and Technology. I t was the most cons picuous of the many summer p rojects o n campus, which was called by many "The Big Dig." It included i nscallation of n i ne 4-inch conduits that will soon hold fiber optic and telecommunications cables. A manda M iller, project coord i­ nator for bcilities M anagement, said the project was needed to get the Morken Center co nnccted with the rest of the campus, but planners uscd the opportu nity to u pgrade the entire COI11munication infrastructure. By m id-August, the ditch was filled in and disrupted landscaping was restored. The project, which was paid for with construction funds for the Morken Center , w as completed before students returned to campus in t he fall.

The Morken Center i tself remains o n schedu le for an early opening i n spring semester of 2006. For a list of ongoing campus projects, go to the Facilities M anagement Web site at Jama/projects. for an ongoing look at the construction of the Morken Center, visit UJww.pht. edu/webcams.

Leave time gives administrators new perspective

could learn a lot about how to live your l i fe from a fourth­ grader. KPLU Program D i rector Joey Cohn spent three months helping students at Seattle's Schmitz Park Ele mentary School write and talk abou t their pas­ sions. He was granted an admi nis trative p rofessional development leave to help two classes at his daughte r'S school p ro­ duce a CD. From i nsects to electric gu i tars, each child on "Student Stories" describes what he or she is passionate about and why. One student sings a lovely version of "Good Night My Someone," from "The M usic Man," while another recites a poem, "My Robot." Students talk with enthusias m and often h u mor abou t why they l ike swi mmi ng, baseball or read i ng. Their unadulterated JOY at making a basket or p layi ng with a pet is uplifting. Cohn he lped the students write their stories, then recorded them at KPLU's studios in downtown Seattle, working with them o n thei r delivery. H e sold the CDs as a fund-raise r for the school, bri nging i n nearly $1,500.




" 'Student Stories' was a great experi­ ence for me because I got to hear 47 kids express the mselves," Co h n said. "It was the first time most of them heard thei r voices recorded. To see expressions when they first heard them­ selves was very entertaining." Cohn said the time off to work at the school his daughter,Julia, attends and the opportunity to i nspire students were invaluable. Equally important was what he learned from the students, teachers and parent vo lu nteers i nvolved in the p roJect. "I learned that I really enjoy working with k ids," Cohn said. "I observed how teachers manage thei r classrooms and how they i n teract with stude nts. I saw that because there was a mu tual respect between the teachers and the students,

it resulted in very few disciplinary p rob­ lems. I learned that positive rei nforce­ ment with children is m uch more effec­ tive than negative feedback. These are all lessons that apply to my work at KPLU." Cohn is just o ne of the ad ministrators granted a p rofessio nal develop ment leave. PLU offers up to four leaves per year to longtime employees to complete p rojects that benefit them personally and p rofessionally. H u man Resources D i rector Teri P h i llips said the adm inistrative leaves are part of PLU's commitment to l i fe­ long learni ng. To be eligible fo r a leave, which can be up to th ree months, administrators must have been employed by the univer­ sity for at least seven years, have a spe­ cific plan for their time away and com­ p lete a summary of what was accom­ p lished. They earn 90 percent of their salary while o n leave. "It's a p henomenal opportunicy," said Alina Urbanec, who as associate director of H u man Resources was granted a leave in 2000-01 to study women's issues and Spanish in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and

Cuba. (The unive rsiry does not cover travel costs.) A diversiry trainer on cam­ pus, Urbanec made connections with educational and social justice groups, includ i ng the i nstitute that PLU stu­ dencs attend for Spanis h i m mersion programs d u ringJ-Term. During her leave, Urbanec realized she wamed ro work more closely with scu­ dems and evemually moved co a new position as directo r of Studem Employmem and Career Developmem. She also starred wo rking with s tudems returning from study away p rograms after confronting her own difficulty re-entering l i fe back on campus. "It gave me an op portunity co be fa r enough away from my life [0 really take a look at i t," she said. jennifer Wamboldt, environmemal health and safery manager, traveled co universities across the country co research emergency planning fro m October through December 2003. S he wcnt to colleges ranging from Washington State Universiry ro Georgecown Universiry in Was hi ngton, D.C. She developed a detailed action plan fo r PLU to addrcss em ergency and environmen tal safery issues. "It's an awesome benefi t for people co have," she said. "I thi n k it's incredi ble that we get that opportuniry. It gives you a break from the Illonocony of the day-to-day and allows you to see things with di fferem pers pectives." Cohn's p roject allowed many at Schmitz Park Elemen tary the chance to see things in a d i fferent ligh t. "Every once in a while a vcry unique opportunity comes along fo r students co participate in something extraordi­ nary," Sc hmitz Park Principal Rich Mellish said. " 'Student Stories' has been one such opportu niry. This CD provides an insight i n co the passions of a grou p o f tru ly wonderful studen ts. I wou l d l ike co give a special thanks co joey Cohn and KPLU for making this opporcunity possible. The generous donation of time and resources wil l make a lasting im pression on t h e lives of our students." �

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Lois Capps '59 is a registered nurse committed ro

im proving p ublic health who was thrust inro politics after the sudden death of her h usband. The 67-year-old lawmaker from S ama Barbara, Calif., ran ro f i l l the seat held by her late h us­ band, Wal ter. Rick Larsen '87 started his poli tical career much earlier in l ife as a Snohomish Counry (Was h.) Council man and was elecred to Congress at age 35 in 2000. A third­ term congressman from Norrhwest \l(/ash ingron, he's already well known in the U.S. House of Represenratives for his effective, easygoing sryle. Capps and Larsen are the only PLU alu mni currenrly serving in Congress. Several PLU alums have been elected to local and state governmental bodies, and Jack Metcalf '51, was Larsen's pred­ ecessor. Metcalf served six years in Congress after 24 years in the state Legisla[Ure. Their backgrounds and approaches differ, bur Capps and Larsen have simi­ larities. They're both Democrats caught




up i n t h e struggles o f their minoriry parry. And they both have strong voices, refusing to back down from what they feel is righ r. Capps, the daughter of a Lutheran m inister who was married to a religion professor for 37 years, calls the $2.6 tril­ lion federal budget recenrly drawn up by the House Budget Com m i ttee an "im mo ral documem." Ask her why, and she won't mince words. "I think it's im moral because of the way it robs from the next generation," said the feisry, fou rth-term Democrat who has garnered great p raise from col­ leagues for her com mitment to social issues. "It makes them pay for tax cuts that will go to the wealthiest among us, and i t also will cut up r o $20 billion from the Medicaid health care p rogram over the next 10 years. M edicaid helps peo­ ple who can't afford to pay for their health care - and these funding cutbacks could eventually force m any sen­ ior citizens right out of their nursing h o m es, by depriving them of the money they need to pay for such care."

S i m ilarly, Larsen didn't hesitate when he had to make a crucial decision on the floor of the House. Although he was caugh t u p in a fie.rce re-elecrion batrle - and although his sprawling 2nd Districr contains U.S. m ilitary installations at both W h idbey Island and Everett - he concluded that it would be a mistake ro invade Iraq. So he p u t h is career on the line - and he voted agai nst the Ocr. II, 2002, resO­ lution that authorized the u.s. President ro bring down Saddam Hussein. (Capps also voted against the resolution.) Ask Larsen what i t was like ro pur his neck in a p o l itical noose by voting against a powerful chief executive only a year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and he poims out that he actually received "very litrle criticism" for voting his conscience in 2002. "I voted against that resolution because I was convinced the Unired Stares shouldn't take a 'go ir alone' approach in Iraq," Larsen said in a recent interview on Cap i ro l Hil l. »




For Capps, who spent two decades as a hard-working p u blic school n u rse i n central Cal ifornia, the road to the U.S. House of Representatives began on a bru tally painful afternoon at Was h i ngton's Dulles In ternational Ai rport. It was there that her beloved h u sband - former Democratic Congressman Walter H. Capps - s u ffered a fatal heart attack in October of 1997. Only 13 months before his sudden death, the longti me reLigion and phi los­ ophy professor at the U niversity of California, Santa Barbara, had surprised the political pundits by winning the congressional seat in the state's 23rd D istrict. Until the. Capps u pset, the Republicans had maintained an i ron grip on this moderate-to-conservative district for nearly 50 years. Sud den ly, Lois Capps was faced with a difficult choice. Should she retire into peaceful obscu rity - or should she fight to keep her deceased husband's h ard­ won congressional seat in the ranks of the struggl ing Democratic Party? "1 prayed a lot and I struggled a lot,"



she said, "and I fin ally decided that the best th ing I could do was to try and serve my country by running for Walter's seat." I n M arch 1998, Capps narrowly won a s pecial election and headed to the nation's capital. Si.nce then, she's been re-elected fou r times, and most political observers believe she'll be able to remain in office as long as she wishes. "The last few years have certainly been difficult at ti mes," she said with a weary sigh. She also lost her daughter Lisa to illness in 2000. "But [ really do think I'm a hopeful person, ill spite o f every­ thing, and I beueve that with the h ard rimes comes the faith you need to keep on living - and to keep on doing your best to serve others." Since entering Congress seven years ago, the end lessly energetic Capps (she's also an accomplished violinist with a master's degree in theology from Yale) has fought ha.rd to improve health care and education, as a member of both the Budget and Ene rgy/Commerce com mit­ tees. In rece nt months, she's also spent a lot of time trying to fend off what she sees as "a growing th reat" to the "safety net" provided by Social Security.

During nearly a decade of fighting for "the vulnerable and the powerless" on Capitol Hill, Capps has drawn s u p port from some powerful allies, such as for­ mer House M inority Leader Richard Gephardt, who described her as "a woman of characrer, imegrity and won­ derful cirizenshi p." Former President Bill Cli nton recendy ech oed that senti ment, while relling an app laud ing CalifornIa audience: "I've never known a better human being than this woman, ever!" Capps, who p resented the PLU Commencement address and was awarded an honorary doctorate i n 2001, said her n u rsing education challenged her "to the limit." S he attended PLU i n rhe earlier days o f the program, when students trained ar a hospital i n Portland, Ore. "Well, rhat program was p retty tough, let me tell you," Capps said. "It was so demanding and c h al lenging. [ can remember crying myself to sleep at n ight more than once from s heer exhaustion." I.n spite of the hards hips, however, Capps says she's grareful for the early les­ sons she learned abollt facing challenges. She said nursing school can p rovide "the

perfecr background" for service-mi nded srudcnr s who might someday decide ro run for political office. "I talk to nursing organizations all the ti me, and I always tell them: 'Look, the skills you need ro be a good nurse are the same skills you need ro be an effective me�ber of the House of Representatives,'" she said. "The caring, the decision-making skills and the teamwork required for good nursing - these are precisel)1 the things you need most, in order to do a good job on Capirol Hill. Every time I talk ro a group of nurses, I wind up urging them ro run for the u.s. Congress!" KEE PING HIS SENSE OF HUMOR

For Larsen, who jokes that he was admitted ro PLU in spite of the fact that he's a lifelong Methodist, serving in Congress is "a huge responsibi lity, but that doesn't mean you have to leave your sense of hUlllor at the door." Ask h i m how he manages ro remain calm during the daily political "crisis" on Capitol Hill, and he'll tell you wi th a straight face: "Nothing ro it - I'm Norwegian!" Larsen and his fellow House Democrats lost the 2002 vote on invad­ ing Iraq (the final tally was 296-133 in favor of the invasion,), bu t he says recenr events there have triggered "increasing doubts" about the wisdom of the inva­ sion strategy. "I do th ink the public in general is growing more and more skeptical about our ch ances for success in Iraq," he said. "We need ro support our soldiers rhere, obviously, but we also need ro push rhis adminisrration more in order ro esrablish some milesrones rhat will let us measure success - such as rhe successful recon­ struction of rhe infrastructure and rhe developmenr of an effective government - rhat will define the point at which we can bring our folks h o me." CHASING THAT 'LAST MEATBALl:

Spend an hour or tWO in Larsen's office in Washi ngron, D.C., and you'll quickly discover thar this PLU political science studem - unlike so me of his Capirol Hill colleagues - is easygoing and not bur­ dened with a jumbo-sized ego. 1 think the key ro being effective in Congress is knowing how ro get along wirh rhe people around you," Larsen said, after f lopping down on a bartered-look­ ing sofa. "

"Take jobs, for instance. In the Pacific Northwesr, everybody knows rhar better transportation means more jobs." That's why he sought a posirion on the Transporrarion and lnfrastrucrure Committee, ro fight for federal funds for trJnsporration in Was h ingron, including more dollars for the i mpor tanr ferry sysrem . "We're talking about $ 5 mil lion annu­ ally for rhe ferries,and thar should be veq' helpful for the economy," Larsen said. "And that rransporration bill is a great example of how you can help your district by learning how ro get along with your colleagues on a congressional committee." Why is Rick Larsen so good at "schmoozing" h i s way ro maximum dol­ lars for his congressional districr? "Well, I was one of eight kids in our family," he said with a delighted chuckle, "and one of the first things you learn i n that situation is that you better speak up and go after what you wam at the din­ ner table. If there's a meatball left on that plate, you better go after it!" Born and raised as the son of a utility company worker in Arlington, Wash . , Larsen arrived on the PLU campus in the fall of 1983 - and soon discovered that he had a passion for the "fascinating complexity" that could be found in both economics and political science.

"That was the roughest class I ever rook," Larsen said. "I spent two hours a night on that one class, alone! It nearly killed me, but in the end I gOt an A- . .. and 1 learned some amazing stuff about

the power of economic markets on poli­ tics, and vice versa. "The great thing about going ro PLU was the way the professors required you to think for yourself - and Dr. M iller was an absolure genius at that." After graduating and then earning a master's degree in public administration from the University of Minnesota, Larsen thought he was headed roward a career in business. But he wound up running for and winning a seat on the Snohomish Coumy Council in 1997. Three years later, at 35, he defeated a strong Republican candidate in J rae' ro replace Republican Metcalf in legendary Senaror Henry "Scoop" Jackson's ho me district. According ro some of his col leagues and political associarcs, Larsen has a "natural instinct" for politics, and a relaxed, "down-ro-earth" personality thar serves him well. "With Rick Larsen, what you sec is what )'Oll get," said Bob Anderson, a for­ mer mayor of Everett. "He's a very gen­ uine guy, and he's also very bright." Adds former Washington State Transportation Commission Chair Connie Niva: " He's young, he's smarr and he's gutsy. His district is very com­ pli cated, and he's a perfect march for it, because he's very bright, bllt he's also very rough. Thar vote he rook on Iraq that was extremely djfficult for him, but he made the vote, and I think the mili­ tary folks in his district really did respect him for it." Larsen said h is agenda includes help­ ing "the workers, fanners and military folks" who make up the heart of his widely variegared district. "The Second District runs all the way up to the Canadian border," he said, "and we have everything from the fish­ ing indusrry to the aerospace i ndustry ro raspberry producers and military fami­ lies and even a huge aluminum smelter at Ferndale that employs 500 people.

The rowing careers of Paulette Bergh '80 and Ruth Babcock '80 are nearly i dentical. Bergh trans­ felTed to PLU after her freshman year and joined Babcock on the crew team. In the next three years thev were members of the Senior

4 s uad that qualified for the national championships each sea­ son, placing sixth in 1 978 and fifth in 1980. They also won a bronze medal in the varsity pai r at the national champions hips as seniors. Babcock was a four-year letter winner, and Bergh lettered three times, was a team captain and received the team's Most Inspirational Award her senior year. They continued their rowing careers after graduating from PLU, and in 1 983, along with Pam Knapp l3lack '84, won the Senior 4 at both the U.S. Nationals and the Canadian Henley. Bergh and Babcock also finished second i n the pair's races at the U.S. Nationals an d Canadian Henley that same year missing the title in the Canadian Henley by two 100th's of a sec­ ond. They won the pair's race at the U.S. Master's Nationals in 1 985, and Bergh was a member of the E l i te 4 squad that won the Canadian Henley t i tle i n 1987. Bergh was an assistant coach at Western Washington Un iversi ty for five years ( 1 988-93) and was on the board of d irectors of the U.S. Rowing Association for four years ( 1 994-97) .




Colleen Hacker, assistant dean




E d ucation, joined PLU in 1 979 Physical Education and head women's field hockey coach. Two years later, then PLU Athletic Director David Olsoll decided to d rop field hockey and add women's soccer. Although Hacker had not played or coached the sport before, she became the head coach of the new team. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. In a I S-year span that ended with the 1995 season, Hacker's teams compiled a 233-59- 1 8 win­ loss record, won the Northwest Conference ti de 10 times, won

five straight NAIA District I and

NAJA West Region crowns, and played for the NAJA national championsh ip five consecu tive years. The Lutes won the national tide in 1 988, 1 989 and 199 1 and finished as runner-up i n 1 990 and 1992. Hacker's win total remains to this day the NAIA record, and her .781 winning percentage is cur­ rently sixth in the NAJA annals. She was named the conference Coach of the Year five times, the NAJA District 1 Coach of the Year seven limes, Ni\lA/NSCAA West Region Coach of the Year four times and NAIA/NSCAA National Coach of the Year three tunes. She joined the coaching staff of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team in 1 996 and is the teall1's sport psychologist.

C ou rageo usl y, she has o pe ned the doo r to fo rgiveness and reconci l i atio n , real i z i n g t hat it is never too late. Wi th all that said, what is forg iven ess? Forgiveness means we are able to look beyond t h e act and see the other person as a child o f God.. Fo rg i ve n ess i s b e i n g able to let go of rem e m be red h u r t and pai n , looki n g toward t h e future, rather t h an dwel l i ng on the past. Forgiveness i s reco gnizi ng that we are not in con­ trol. I t i s l e tt in g go an d let ti n g God take c harg e of our lives and rel a r i o n ­ shi ps. The road to fo rgiveness a ls o req u i res that we both ac k now l ed ge our own need fo r pardon a n d em. b race for o u rse lves the fu l l ness of God's gi ft of grace offered to us and t o all people. What are rhe consequences i f we do not or ca n no t fo rgive others and seek heal i ng fo r o ur lives? M an y do ctors a nd ps ychia t ris t s tell us that u nresolved anger or guilt often results in illnesses such as c l i n i cal depress io n , h eart arrack, and even cancer. National s tudies have been done by the Templcton Foundation, Stanford M e d i cal School and others that collaborate this claim and more amazi ngly provide evidence of the h eali n g that can occu r when one discovers the p ower of fo rgiveness to b r i n g abo u t renewed hope and new l i fe. A good exam pie of tl1 is is the paralytic who is healed by Jesus in b o dy and i n s p i r it when h e hears t h e wo rds: " Yo ur sins arc forgi ven . " (Mark 2 : 1 - 12) The New Testament offers a vis ion for the h ea l i n g and transfo rmation of the world.. I n d eed , the church as the col lec­ tive people o f God is called to be an agent o f h ea l i n g and reconciliation fo r all peo p l e . In an age of cy n i cism , p rej u­ dice, h a tred a n d fear, w e c a n b e healers i n t h e world ... not with b i tterness, b ut with hope. � by an u n cl e as a yo ung girl of 12.

R i c k Rouse, executive d i rector of C h u r c h Relations, says fo rgiving those who c a u s e hurt c a n h e l p p e o p l e recover and h e a l .

By Rick Rouse The following i s a n excerpt from "Fire of Grace: The Healing Power ofForgilic;u:ss, " by Rick Rouse, executilie director of Church Relations at PLU. He writes about his rela­ tionship with arsonist Paul Keller; who destroJ1ed Trinity Lutheran Church in Lynnwood, Wash., where Rouse was pastor. Rouse liisited Keller in Jail, and he and his congregation learned the power of forgilieness.

hen faced wi th difficulties, disappointments and chal­ lenges, we have an alterna­ tive to remai ning in the ashes of defeat,

bitterness and despair. With faith and courage, one can rise up co new l i fe. It is my hope that hearing about how our congregation recovered may inspire hope and healing not just for i ndividu­ als, but also for our contemporary soci­ ety and for religious commun ities. Even as our nation grows more politically divided, our religious co mmunities arc also unraveling as we struggle wi th dif­ ferem visions of faith, values and morality. Resentment grows i n [he chasms between our differences. Yet God's grace reveals a different vision for how we are to live cogether i n rela­ tionsh i ps where we arc less l. ikely [0

Patrina Pellett '06 will do research at the N a ti on al Institutes of H e a lth thanks to a m aj or s c holarship.

Science major wins National Institutes of Health scholarship LU sen ior Patrina Pellett, of Sitka, Alaska, was one of 12 out­ stand ing young scien tists to receive a s ignificant National I nsti tutes of Health scholarship. The NIH Undergraduate Sc holars h i p for Ind ividu als from Disadvantaged Backgrounds p rovides fu nding to S tu­ dents com m i tted to careers i n biomed­ ical, behavioral or social science heal th­ related researc h. The sch olarship awards up to $20,000 per academ ic year for tuition and educational and l iving expenses.

Pellett '06, who is majoring 111 b iology and chemistry, graduates in May and will do her i nternsh ip this summer, con tinuing i nto the worl< program next fall. "The facil ities there are amazing," said Pellett, who is thinking about researching signal transduction, which stud ies cells, at NIH and plans to be a chemist. "The idea of getting to work at a place where you have every resou rce at you r fi ngertips is in cred ible." PLU professor of chemistry Craig Fryhle will work with Pellett as a facul ey memor a nd advisor in the scholars h i p p ro gram .

Federal grant will allow Women's Center to start new programs nearly $200,000 federal grant will allow PLU to c reate compre­ hensive education and train ing programs ai med at p reventi ng violence agai nst women. "\Ve're creating a project that empow­ ers o u r whole comm u n i ty to be more i nvolved," said Bobbi H ughes, director of the Women's Center. " It's no more of a problem here than anywhere else, but at the same time, it's a n issue that isn't usually talked about o r very visible." The two-year grant c reates two new part-time positions to coordinate advo­ cacy and training program s , i ncludi ng a Men Against Violence program. It will

more formally connect the camp us with com m u n i ty agencies such as the YMCA and the Sexual Assault Center of Pierce County.

Graduation will move to Tacoma Dome to allow greater attendance al low fo r a much larger audi­ encc at the grand spring com­ mencement ceremony, PLU will move grad u ation [ 0 the Tacoma Dome starting in M ay 2006. The traditions of this i m ponant m i les[One in the lives of PLU graduates and t he university will co n tinue in the new ven lle. "\'(/c're working very hard to preserve thc elemcnt s of the ceremony that make PLU com mencement so special [0 our grad ua tes and their fa rn il ies," Registrar Kristin Plaehn said. "This move will make commcnccment much more accessible and comfortable for everyone who looks forward to rhis important d ay. " The move means tickets will nor be required, and gradua tes can in vire as many fam i ly and fricnds as they want [0 celebrate their accomplishmt'ms in perso n. I n the past, each grad uate received a smal l nu mber of tickets. The dome will acco mmodate an audi ence of 6,000, more than twice what Olson AuditOrium can sear. I t is easily accessi­ ble to people with disabil i ties. With more tban 600 students ea rning graduate and undergraduate degrees in the past few May ceremon ies and evcr­ growing classes, gradu ation has sim ply ou tgrown Olson Aud itorium. POI' many years, Olson h as been filled to capacity well befo re the ceremony starts, sen d i n g many famil ies a n d friends t o twO over­ flow locations airing the ceremony on closed circu it TV. Eve n those have ru n out of seats. o

Having more space also will allow August graduates [0 choose to partici­ pate in either the trad itional May cere­ mony or December commencement, which will continue [0 be held on cam­ pus. There will no longer be a need for a separate su mmer ceremony. Com mencement will continue [0 include trad i tions such as vocal per­ formances, the facu lty process ion, Univers i ty banners and the Universi ty Mace. Also, the universi ty will expand the opport u n i ties fo r grad uares and their famil ies to enjoy campus on com­ mencement wee kend, including the worship service and brunch before the ceremony.

feel like doing more than just getting a job. I want to do something meaningful." -ALEX M ONTANCES '06

"The cou rse is really a mazi ng," said Ron Vignec, fo rmer PLU campus pas[O r and founder o f the Eastside/Salishan Lutheran Mission. " I t's i m porranr because i t ripples through the com m u n i ty." Vignec and his wife, Nancy, special projects officer fo r the Tacoma Housing Authority, have fostered many self-sufficien­ cy efforts fo r the residenrs of Salishan, i ncluding drug elimi­ nation programs, the communiC)l garden, English as a Second Language classes and mu lticu ltural gatherings. Vignec says he doesn't look at the s rudenrs living in the house as just s rudenrs - rhey are part of the com m u n i ry. Ben nett, H arpel and Mon rances say living in the neighborhood al lows them [0 ap p ly what they learn i n class [0 thei r experiences in S alishan. It is d i fferenr than living on campus, and they see firsthand issues such as poverty, racial divide and crime. "Ie's sort of like coming [0 the real world here," said Harpel, an anthropology and history major who also lived 1[1 the house last spring and throughout the sum mer. "Everyone h as [0 work [0 get through the day. I f they don't work, they don't live." Although there is evidence of d rugs and gangs, the studems said they don't see a lot of crime. " It's still p resen r: it's JUSt !l ot as big as people chink it is," Harp ' I sa i d . "Most residents en joy Living in the Salishan area and think that what other people think about it is a linle inaccu rate." The s ru denrs believe that eno rts such as the Cambodian dance group that Montances volu mcers for are helping make improvemen rs by p rovid .i ng after-school acrivities fl)r kids. And while they said they see a lot of racial tension among the adults, it's not p revalent among the children. Montances said the dance group combines many ethnicities including Cambodians, Caucasians and Vietnamese. He enjoys learning abou t Cambodian c u l r u re - and com par­ ing it to his own Filipino background. "The music is so d iffer­ ent fro m the Fili p i no fol k danci ng I used [ 0 do," he said. " I app reciate it a lot more now that I've been helping the kids dance [0 it." Monrances and Bennett both volunreer at adult Engl ish as a Second Language classes in the co m m u n i C)l, where they see d i fferenr cultures working together to learn English. Bennett, 12


a biology and h is[Ory major, said the classes provide Immi­ grants with an opporrunity [0 connect with the cou n try. " I m m igrants feel displaced," she said, noting that nor all residents o f Salishan are i m m igrants. "They a re stri p ped from everything co m fortable." She can see how those in the ESL clas�cs feel being around a language and culture di fferent from their own. " I t's sort of displac i ng fo r us too," she said. "Service is a good opportuni­ ty [0 con nect wi th people you wou ldn't normally know." Changes are in store for the cOllllll u n i ty. The Tacom a Housing Authority, with help frolll a grant from the U.S. Departllle nt of HOllsing and Urban Development and other sources, is building new homes fo r Salishan residents. That Illeans people have to move out while the houses are f1al t.ened and new o nes go up in their place. The resu lt will be m ore than 1 ,200 new homes, o ffering affordable rental and home owne.rship, and new com m u n i ty facilities. The students arc watching the p rocess begin aro u nd them, wi th people moving out of the houses on their street. Their own house is likely [0 be demolished after the spnng semester. As fo r the fu ture of the program, Brusco and Keller hope to turn it into something simi lar [0 a semester-long in terna­ tional p rogram - giving students a cross-cu l tu ral experience com plemented by courses at PLU. Keller said everyone involved in wi th program has learned a lot - i ncluding herself. "I t's been reward ing to see the trans­ formation with the students," she said. "You can't live here and not change i n some way." Some of the students say their time at Salishan has changed their p lans after graduation. H arpel either wants [0 join AmeriCorps or work in the educa­ tion field - and learn how it relates to multicu l tu ralism and d i fferen t ethnicities. Montances, who was planning to do contract a rchaeology in p reparation for graduate school, is now chin king about put­ ting i t off and con tinuing to do volu nteer wo rk, perhaps with Peace Corps or AmeriCorps. "I feel l i ke doing more than j ust getting a job," he said. "I wan t [0 do something meani ngful." �

Part of a circle To solve this p roblem, Allen says cities h:1Ve [0 look [0 the nonprofit sec[Ors for help. Wi tho ut it, an effective revit::dization campaign will show its cracks, maybe even fail. "You need [0 look at econo mic development and h u man services as pa rts of a circle," said Allen. "One begins where the other ends. \Vhe rever there is the weakest link, that is where cracks will fo rm." To i l lustrate bis point, he speaks of the Rescue Mission and Nativity House, two essen tial service providers for the area's most desti tute. The two nonprofits were once located just across the street from Allen's b uilding, where the Cou rtyard Marriott and the conven tion cen ter are today. It became c lear, Allen said, that if these new developments were going to displace the facilities that care fo r those in greatest need, then their replacements must not only be improved, but they need to be located nearby. The logic is simple: if the Nativity House and Rescue Mission were moved, for example, [0 south Tacoma, then the population they served would never be able to use those services, and they wou ld be back on the streets. And that wou ld make places like the Cou rtyard Marrioer and the conven tion cen ter - not to men tion simply living downtown - less attractive. So there had to be a balance. The Nativity H o use, now located on South Jefferson Avenue a few blocks from i ts previous space, has a new state-of-the-art facility, serving abo ut three times the people it had once served. "It did exacdy what i t was supposed to do," said Allen. "It helped the people that it was supposed to, and I t helped clean up downtown." Simi larly, [he need to address affordable housing issues i n down town wi l l b e something that Alien, through U n i ted Way Pierce County, will continue to focus on. 1 8 PLU SCENE WINTER 2005 > FEATU RES

"The more you do this, the greater the source of community strength," Allen said. PLU President Loren J . Anderson said having a vibrant downtown core strengthens PLU as we ll. "With Tacoma's renewal, the city offers studen ts, staff and facu l ty a range of cultural, b usiness and social

opportuni ties," he said. "At the same time, PLU p rovides the cicy and i ts residents with a place [0 get a great ed ucation, enjoy scholarly and arts events on campus - and most impo rtan tly - the u niversity sends well­ trai ned leaders i n to the co mmunity to continue the social and economic p rogress."

"You're racing guys who had raced i n t h e Olympics," Larsen said. "There were good crews all around . It was fun co l i ne up next to guys that you had seen in racing videos and always chought were fast. And now, you're close co che same speed." Rowing lighcweight men's double sculls, he and his ceammate, Mike Altman, placed fourth in che B final for a lOch place finish overall in che 2005 FISA World Rowing Champions hips. Geccing co that point cook a lor of hard work and dedication. Larsen, who grew up in Lake Stevens, Wash., discov­ ered rowing by following his besc friend and freshman year rool11mate Jed Stoken '04 to a crew i n ten�sc meeting. He started out on thc novice tcam, joining the men's varsity ceam his sophomore year. With a core group of rowns scicking around all fou r years, che ceam began winning competitions - placing first in the men's ughcweigh .r 4+ ac the Paciflc Coast Rowing Championships and first in the petite final in the open 4+ ac the Pacific-tO Rowing Championships Larsen's junior year. The nexc year, Larsen's team won thc gold medal in the lightweight men's 4+ race at the 2002 Dad Vail Regacta. "\X/e were all focused on the same goal," said Larsen, who was varsity cap­ tain his senior year. "It was a great end­ ing for our careers." Even though his PLU crew career was endi ng, Larsen knew he wanted to keep rowing and ;tttended a l ighcweight sum­ mer camp in 2002 at the Pen n Athletic Club, where he gained confidence before returning to PLU in the fall to fi nish h is degrees. Buying a si ngle scull, Larsen, who earned degrees in math and Norwegian and a coach ing m i nor, spent the year practicing, coac h i ng the men's novice team and helping out with the men's and women's varsity teams. After graduation, Larsen headed back

co the East coast. "I drove to Penn sylvania without a plan," he said. "I had my boat on cop of my truck and my truck full of about t h ree q uarters of what I owned." Camping OUt on a friend's floor, Larsen spent that summer back at the Pen n Athletic Club summer camp. While there, Larsen and his teammates com­ peted at the U.S. Nationals, winn i ng five gold medals and one si lver medal. "It was a very excicing summer because we were going pretty fast compared to other pre-elites," Larsen said. (Elites are those who are i n che upper levels of rowing.) That fall, Larsen joi ned the Penn Athletic Club and concentrated 011 get­ ting even faster and stronger. " It's :t lot more intense," he said. "You're rowing a lot more miles chan you ever had be fore." He placed first in boch 2004 and 2005 at the Main Line Slide Erg Competition on the rowing machine and finished sev­ enth at the C.RAS.H.-B. Wo rld Indoor Rowing Championsh ips in 2004 and fo urth in 2005. Finally, after missing the U.S. national team for men's s i ngle sculls in 2004, Larsen qual ified with Altman in 2005. After spending the summer training at the Princeron Train i ng Center they headed for the world championshl ps. Larsen, who is hoping to return to the world championships next year and is training for the 2008 Olympics, credits his success a s a rower to his teammates, both at the Penn Athletic Club and at PLU, and his supportive family and girl friend. Larsen, who is J. pension ad ministrator at Electronic Data Syscems in Cherry Hill, N.J., enjoys the intensity of the sport and the camaraderie wi th his teammates. "When you have guys around to keep you excited, it's a lot of fu n." He added that the crew teams at PLU, both men's and women's, were like fami­ ly - hanging out boch on and off the water. "Everyone was good fr iends," Larsen said. "We had fun and, in the end, thar's what YOLl want to do."

Larsen started his crew c a reer a t PLU.

((You )re racing gu�'Ys that had raced in the Olympics. There were good crews all around. It was fun to line up next to guys who you had seen in racing videos and always thought were fast. And now) you )re close to the same speed. " - Bjorn Larsen )03

During his years at PLU, It always bothered him that his students never had access to a script li brary - a stand-alone collection of theater scripts that aspiring actors could peruse. So. bade in the '80s when two rooms in Memorial Gym were clcquired by the Theatre Department, he made sure one of them was converted to hoUse nothing but scripts - and be ava ilable 24-hours accessibility,

She and her mom, Carole, looked at many schools, but Monica just didn't like the feel of them. Carole read about an open house at PLU , and they decided to check it out . They had never been on campus before, · We got


the car to leave and she said, 'I have to go

here,'" Carole said. "It was instantaneous. PLU gave her a chance and she just bloomed . The fit was like hand to glove. It was unbelievable, " Mon ica died tragica l ly Feb, 25, 200 1 , when a deck colla psed at an off-campus party. And though she never got to complete her freshmen year. her mother is making sure others have the chance to experience a l l that PLU has to offer through the Monica Sara Ughtell Memorial Scholarship,

At PLU, Monica excelled In class, joined the PLU crew team, volu nteered and took u p snowboarding .

Earl, who passed away about four years ago. was a reporter

for the Tacoma News Tribune for nearly 37 years -1 5 of those covering PLU sports. H is work made him a

inductee to the PLU Athletics Hall of Fame, not to mention a member of the Tacoma-Pierce County Sports Hall of Fame. J i l l was already a PLU sports fan - her father would take her to many events as a chi ld, and her affection for the PLU athletics only grew through the years, The two, along with theIr daughter. Anne Luebker Leatherman - herself a Lute fan - attended many sporting events . The J i l l and Earl Luebker Endowment for Intercollegiate Athletics is also a perfect match for Lute athletes. Whereas NCAA rules do not allow gifts to go toward tuition of specific athletes, they do benefit the athletic programs as a whole - helping pay travel, recruiting, equipment and other tools necessary to ensure teams sustain a competitive advantage over their rivals, Moreover, the endowment,

development of tomorrow's leaders athletically,

So what was it about PLU athletics that made such an impression on the Luebkers? " PLU sports were

Severtsons' lifelong devotion to PLU turns toward Eastvold revitalization Erv and Nancy Severtson have bUllt much 01 therr lives around PLU, and now they are working to bnng new life to the histone Eastvold Hall. " PLU is our passion. It's been our life in many ways, " Erv said

"We have spent most of our adult lives here. "

Severtson '55 so valued his experience as a student that he was determ i ned to teach and could think of no better place than PLU to do that. He jOined the psychology faculty in 1 966 and retired as vice president for Student Life in 1 999. He and Nancy met on a 1 95 7 study trip to Europe led by former h istory professor Walter Schnackenberg when Erv was a student at Luther Seminary and she was an undergrad at the u niversity of Mich igan. Nancy q uickly shared his passion for PLU. She earned a master's


education from PLU in 1 979 and taught fifth

grade in the Puya l l u p School District for 20 years. She has been a longtime member of the PLU Women's Club and Yule Boutique volunteer. They follow PLU sports, attend music events, and both serve on the Eastvold leadership Committee, which is raising money for the revital ization of the histOric b u i l d i ng . Plans ca l l for a refurbished auditorium, state-of-the-art fac i l ities, a renewed chapel. and the relocation and consolidation of the Division of Humanities in fastvold,

Erv was on the planning committee for the 50th reunion of the Class ot 1 955, which pledged to raise $50,000 for a seminar room In Eastvold, which was built wh ile he was a student. " It was a center for the arts and worship, " he said, "In the 1 950s it was probably the fi nest space in the region, but 50 years have passed, and It's time for It to have new life. It needs to be revitalized so it meets the needs of campus and the community for the next 50 years. "

Howell decided to deSignate 49 percent of his policy to the university, making the current value for PlU S323,OOO. ThiS value will continue to grow over time. Part of Howell's decision was based on the importance of a global education. " People haVing an international education IS really Important. " said Howe l l, who spent


semester in Ta nzania his junior year " PLU is making that happen ..

As for the future, Howell plans to donate in other ways as well. " PLU has continued to make Itself better, · he said , "They can't get everyth ing done that they hope to without donors,"

it has really lasted a l l my life . "

Now, as a retired math professor from Western Washington University, there Is rarely a night Reay is not performing or practidng music. With 30 to 40 years of directing church cho i r s under his belt, Reay also, among other th ings, sings in the Whatcom Chorale, plays bassoon in the Whatcom SymphonY and plays the clarinet In several groups, Reay, who started donating to PLU in 1 964 with his wife, Betty Ann, said the pu rpose of an education is to get you excited about different thi ngs In l ife, " It's supposed to open doors and show you what's out there," he said. "That's certa i n ly what happened to me with the Choir of the West, H Reay and his wife have been Q Club members for as long as they can remember, have designated a gjft to PLU In their will and contribute to variOus PLU campaigns.

De parrmem o f Labor has idemified regisrered nursing as rhe rop ocCuparion i n rerms o f job growrh rhrough rhe year 20 1 2. In May, rhe Narional Comm ission on Nursing Workforce fo r Lon g-Term Care repolTed rhar rhere are nearly 1 00,000 vacam n u rsing posiriolls in long-rerm care facili ries o n any given day, and rhe an nual nu rsc rurnover rare exceeds 50 percent. The sho rrage is cosring lo ng­ rerm care fac i l i ries alone an esrimared $4 billion a year i n recruirmem and rrai ning expenses. An undersranding of rhe sho rrage req u i res some analysis of where n u rse� choose 1'0 work and how long rhey remain in nursing posi rions. Rural areas have had berrer re�ulrs wirh crearing rheir own nursing programs, ad m ining a local popu larion who is more l i kely ro sray a rural area. Howcver, rhis changes wirh m ajor rec ru i ri n g e fforrs by berrer­ resourced urban areas, pro m i s ing berre r salaries, benefirs and relocarion incenrives. The sho rrage also has been exacerbared by some crearive solurions co downsizing n ursing sraffs in rhe lare '80s and early '90s. Many nurses work parr-rime and have beco me accusromed co f1exibil ity in scheduling, unk nown in p revious decades. Conrinuiry of care beco mes harder as rhe n umber of parc­ ri me nurses exceeds rhose who p rovide care on a more consisre n r basis. Depending on who addresses rhe issue, rhe roor cause fo r rhe n u rs ing sho rrage has been iden rified as work environmenral issues, inadequare salaries, lack of s ign i ficanr career advancemenr and rhe aging demograp hics of rhe nursing workforce. r n rhe March-Ap ril 2005 issue of Nurs ing Econom ic$, Perer Buerhaus and colleagues fo und rhar more rhan 75 pcrcell[ of RNs believe rhe n u rsing shorrage presencs a major p roblem fo r rhe qual i ty o f rheir work l i fe, rhe Cj ua l i ty of parie nr care and rhe amou n l' of ri me nurses can spend wirh parienrs. Looking forward, almosr aJ l surveyed n u rses see rhe sho rtage in the fu ture as a caraJyst for increasing stress on nurses (98%), lowering parient care quality (93%)

Some starisricians claim rhar ir is impossible for cxisring n u rsing programs to expand in order ro adequatl'iy address rhe nursing shortage. The mosr prevalen r solution fo r "fixing" the n u rsing sho rtage has been driven by mulrj p le i meresrs i ncludi ng: rhose e m ployi ng nu rses, insriru tiol1s wanting to gel' inm the business o f producing n u rses; and educational p rograms rhar educate n urses. In orher words the solurion has been mosrly defi ned in rerms o f expanding rhe pipeline of new grad uares. Public awareness of the n u rsing sbo l'rage h ;l.S d riven increase� i n e n rollmcl1(s more rhan anyth i ng. T h e PLU School o f Nursing studenr body

has grown by 47 percenr ar rhe undergraduate level and by more rhan 200 percenr at the graduate level si nce 2002. Those inquiring abou t our P L U programs in nursing exceed 4 0 0 per monch , u p from less rhan 1 00 six years ago. Swdenrs and rheir significan r orhers have res ponded ro m arketing efforrs, such as rhe Joh nson and Joh nson ad cam p aign rhat sh owcased the porenrial for nursing graduares in terms o f salary, employabi l i ty, service, job securiry and inrernarional travel, as well as rhe chance ro make a d i fference i n the l ives of oth ers. Whereas we look to c l in ical agencies to pLace Ollr nurs i ng graduares, rhe employers look ro us to produce graduates in s u fficienr numbers to fill rheir posi tions. S i m ilarly, appl icants anticipate ad mission and success, regardless of capacity and demands fo r excel lence. Regardless of one's perspective, n u rsing sho rtages are serious and affecr everyone across rhe co unrry in more ways rhan rhe direct reci pienr o f nursing care recognizes. Unforrunarely, the sho rrage can serve as an i m perus fo r solurions that do nor serve eirher the public's best i n teresr or nursing as a h i ghly des irable profession i n the fu ture. The nu rsing shorrage colors expecrations and drives many o f rhe changes occurring i n health care, as wel l as rhe programs educaring n u rses. Whar is certain is thar someone at some price will fi l l rhe nursing vacancies - o r r h e presenr sysrem will i mplode. PLU's School of Nursing conrin ues ro be com mi rred to producing excellent n urses who are p ro fessionally orien ted, focused o n lives o f service and personally accoun rable fo r i m p roving health care. The PLU School o f N u rsing has worked very 'hard 1'0 establish a cul rure of excel lence in n u rsing educarion such thar PLU nurs ing graduares, nu rsing fac u l ty and nursing s taff represent a professional val ue system and level o f co m m i tmenr far beyond the usuaL I]] Terry Miller is dean ofthe PLU Sch o ol ofNursing.

A new e ra, a g rowi n g s h o rta g e a n d the futu re of n u rs i n g

Te r ry Mill er, dean of PLU's Sc hool of N u rsing, says better educated nurses and more fa c u lty must b e IJ art of the solution to the nation's nurs i n g shorta g e .

By Terry Miller n m any ways, it i s the best o f times for the nation's nursing schools. In the midst o f a nu rsin g s ho r tag e , the number and quality of applicants to n u rsing programs cominue to rise, the l'O les and salaries for n u rs i n g graduates have never been berter, clin ical agency support i s more collaborative, and the media b li tz addressing the Ilu rsing shortage has not ended. At the same time, t h e re is a downside, The com petitive demand fo r quali t), clinical placements of n u rsing students make ir d i fficult for any program to expand offerings or increase

e n rol lments. Understand ing both the i nherent o pportunity and the growing challe nge presented by t he n u rsing shortage is crucial for the fu rure of health care. Having more nurses will not solve the problem unless the n u rses are b e t ter educated, eth ically based, service­ oriented 1c. r s advocat i n g more for the public's safety and h e a l t h , than fo r personal employment security. Any lo ng-term solu tion will req u i rc that those e n tering n u rsing are bctter equipped, w i l l stay in p ractice l onger and that a greater nu mber will choose to work fu ll-time. Also , any real

solution will require the recrui tme n t a n d development o f more Ph.D. n u rs i ng facu lry who are both effective teachers and clinicians. It is i m portant to firs t define the U . S . n u rsing shorrage. Nursing i s the largest faction of the hea l th care workforce. According to recent projections from the U.S. Bu reau o f- Labor (http://www. .htm) statistics p u bl ished i n the February 2004 Monthly Labor Review, more than one million new.and re placement n u rses wil l be needed by 20 1 2.

Asia exc u rsion includes building relations with existing and new partner col leges and universities in China President Loren Anderson's interview on S i c h u a n Television in Che ngdu.

ew opporrunities for study-away in China have resulted from a visit there last fall by a delegation from PLU. The new initiatives include expanded course offerings at Sichuan University in Chengdu, new possibili ties for graduates to teach Engl ish at Yangzhou Polytechnic College and a new personnel exchange program between PLU al1d Sichuan Television, based in Chengdu. For more than 2 1 , years srudenrs from PLU have stud.ied langu:lge, culture and business at Sichuan University. Now SU and PLU are working to increase the number of students in that p rogram and to make the courses more challenging by adding co mmunity service opportunities for students in Chinese hospitals and m iddle schools, and a stud), tour to "\\1e have agreed to work with profes­ sors and ad ministrators at Sichuan University [0 bring more rigorous course­ work to thc p rograms therc, making them more appropriate for North American students," said PLU President Loren ). Anderson who led the delegation. "\X1e arc also expanding our faculty exchange program and will be working [0 idenrifY more faculty there who might come to PLU for a semester to teach," he said. Lacer this spri ng Greg YOUtz, the p rogram director for the C hengdu-based p rogram, and other PLU faculty will trav­ el to Chengdu to conduct a workshop for SU faculty who teach PLU students. Also new in the Sichuan p rogranl is a host-family experience for students. One o r two times each semester PLU students will be able to spend time in the home of a Sichuan faculty or staff member, have a

meal and acquire a deeper sense of what everyday life is in China. New o p portunities for PLU students to study at the h ighly regarded Sichuan Conservatory of M usic are also under discussion. On another leg of the trip, Neal Sobania, execurive director of the Wang Center, and Wang Center founders Peter Wang '60, a PLU regem, and G race Wang visited Yangzhou Polytechnic College. They s i g n ed an agreemem that will p rovide recent PLU graduates the opportunity to teach English as a second language at the col lege for a semester or a year. They also plan to explore other p rograms of mutual benefit to the two Ul1lversltles. These new teaching opportun ities, known as \:\lan g Center Teaching Fellowships, be ga n in February. Peter Wa ng, through his \\fang Foundation, has been a ceI1 lral figure internationally in opening doors in China for PLU and other u nivers i ties, and in advocating for increasing the enrollment of American studel1[s studying in China. Wang has also been urging the Chinese governmen t to increase its fu n di n g for education, especially among the rural poor of China. PLU has also developed a new partner­ ship with Sichuan Television that came as a direct result of a visit last year to PLU by a Sich uan delegation that was arranged by Peter Wang. The station and PLU have agreed to develop a [WO­ way internsh ip exchange for hculty and docu mentary writers and p roducers. - While in China, university rcpresenta­ tivl::s traveled to Nanjing to participate in [he 20th anniversary celebration of the

Amity Foundation. This independent, vol­ untary organization was created by C hinese Ch ristians to p romote education, health, social welfare and rural develop­ ment in C hina. Loren and MaryAnn Ande.rson and Neal Sobania participated in sessions i n clud i n g those regardi ng suc­ cessful Amity projecrs in education and health. Stops for visits with alumni and friends in Taiwan, Hong Kong and other Asian locales were also pan of the group's i ti n erary. "Our recent engagements in ChiJ]a have left us in a un ique position to enhance our study-away opportunities there," Anderson said. "As one of only (wO schools in the Northwest to offe.r a Chinese studie.s major, with our long relationship with Sichuan Universi ry, and with our new friends in Ya.ngzilou and at Sich uan Television, PLU has arrived at center stage i n a critical area of the world." � Beijing Summer Service and learning Program TH E SUMMER S E RVIC E A ND LEARNING PROJ ECT In B eij i ng offers a unique immersion experien ce In Ch ine se culture and la ng uage for American undergr adu ates.

The team's success has continued this academic year in the fo rm of another AIDS awareness campaign. This event, organ­ ized by Joh nson in Oc[Ober 2005, involved ab out 350 Stu­ dents and facu lty across cam p us wearing bright orange T­ sh irts with the word "orphan" written across the front. In p roportio nal tcrms, each "orphan" on campus that day represented roughly 1 00,000 children in sub-Saharan Africa, at least one-third of whom have been orphaned as a resu l t of the AI [)S vi rus. According [0 the United Nations, some 34 million c hi l d re n i n the region [Oday are orphans. That num­ ber is p ro j e ct ed to rise to more than 40 million by 2010. By drawing attemi.on to s u c h issues through campus programs and events, Johnson hopes to inspire those who have u nder­ informed views about the i m po r tan ce of global education.

Over spring break, 1 6 students and four staff members ju mped i nto the recov­ ery effort, spending their vacation vol­ u n teering at local non-profit organiza­ tions in New O rleans. The Campus M i nis try-sponsored trip sent the group to St. Bernard's Parish, one of the areas hardest hit by the h u rricane, gutting houses and cleaning up trash and debris.

The interaction was one of the most powerful parts o f the trip, he said. The trip focused on service learning, and Zylstra said the group concen trated on the value of the experience, not merely volu nteering their time and energy. When they returned, the group held a forum to share their experiences, hoping to connect others to the reality of the d isaster.

The Danish cartoon fo rum was the latest i n a l i tany of extracurricular con­ versations that have characterized cam­ p u s l i te for decades. There have been d i scussions of war and peace i n Vietnam, the Balkans, A fghanis tan and I raq. There have been conversations stemming from conf1icts over sexual o rientation and poli tics. There was even a discllssion of Princess Diana consp i ra­ cy theories. According ro Ed I n c h , dean of the School of Arts and Coml11 un ication, these ro u n d -table discussions are the best opportu n i ty fo r students to take w h at they have learned in class - all the skills they h ave developed i n public speaki ng and decision making - and p u t them to usc u nderstand i n g real­ world problems.

"The kids iden ti fy because they see people of their own color, and th at's the whole idea," said Paula Leitz, associate dean of PLU's School of Education. Leitz coordinates the "Grow Your Own Teachers" program o n behalf o f PLU with the help of colleagues Beth Crippen and Tony Aho, '99.

a very big barrier. Costs (to take the tests) are a barrier, too, but we knew that going in."

School district staff oversee student work d uring the i ntern­ ship p hase of the program.

Sitting around a table i n a wood-paneled conference room at district headquarters in April, the students lamented a $ 1 65 charge for this, a $35 licensing fee for that. The un paid i ntern­ ships mean all of the students hold jobs outside the program. Several face the additional b u rden of su pporting their fami­ lies at the same time.

Carol G regory and Mauricio Ayon are district staffers on Highline's Community Engagement Team. They supervise the "G row You r Own" students' internships. "O u r commu nity demographics have been changing dramat­ ically over the last 10 years," G regory explained. "Our super­ intendent at the time believed that if we didn't get to know our community and work with them, it would be much more difficult to reach the acade mic levels that we were hoping for for our kids." Planning for the p togram began i n the spri ng of 2004. The first group of "G row You r Own" students - fou r total - began classes at PLU in June 2005. By June of this year, three of the fou r, Somalia-born Mahamud 1 man, Kimani Mbuthia of Kenya and Ti moa Mageo of American Samoa, will be certified teachers.

Challenges aside, the "G row Your Own" team interviewed dozens of pros pective students throughout the spri ng. "Word is out now," Leitz said. After interviewing several, Leitz said the personal histories of these teacher-hopefuls are some of the most compelling she's ever heard. 1man, a Somal i who came to the U.S. on a lottery visa nine years ago, witnessed the indiscriminate killing of hapless civilians and lost his h o me, savi.ngs and personal belongings in a bloody civil war. He became a U.S. citizen in December.

Around the same time, the next crop of "G row You r Own" students will be starting classes at PLU.

Since arriving in the United Scates, he has become all. avid writer, creating hundreds of essays on various subjects to help hone his English and process the confusion and depression he felt after seeing his home destroyed.

The students must overcome significant h u rdles to complete the program. State-mandated tests must be translated by the students to their native languages to ensure fu ll comprehen­ sion of the questions. Then they translate the answers back to English.

All. essay ti tled " Why I Choose to Pursue a Career in Teaching" explained that issues of color Ill. schools, includi ng the gap between teacher and student-body demographics and the dis­ proportionate way students of color are disciplined in the schools, inspire h i m to teach and to bond with his students.

" It's been much more difficult for them to pass the basic ski lls test because all of these tests are timed," G regory said. "Consequently, they have to take it more times. That became

Turner ranks No. 1 i n six season-best and career-besc categories and sics among the rop 10 in two other season

categories and fou r more career-besc cace­ gories in basketball. Her six No. 1 call ies i nclude chree-point field goals made in a season (67) and over che course o f her career (2 18) , three­ point field goal percentage fo r a season (47.4) and career (42.7) and free throw percentage for a season (89.4) and career (86.7). Turner's chree-po int prowess earned her che top spOt in the s ingle-season three-point fie ld goal cacegory this year. The scandou c performance came on che heels of three straighc years o f landing in PLU's si ngle-season ro p 1 0 in thac category. She holds chree o f ch e rop 10 single-season records fo r percen tage of three-point field goals made, i ncluding the school record of 47.4 percent dur­ ing her sophomore season. In a game against George Fox in January, she made eight three poimers, serri ng a sin­ gle-game school record. Turner set the s ingle-season free throw percen tage record last year and nearly bettered that mark this seaso n. She is among the rop 10 in poinr s for a season and career, career fiel d goals made, free throws made in a season and career, and career assists. Turner was named ro the Northwest Con ference all-conference team all fou r years a n d was a first team selection this season.

One of the most obvious changes to the site is the list of contents in the navi­ gation bar on the left hand side of the screen. Headings in this area lin k to the

Lutheran values realized at Seattle's Compass Center hen the 6.8-magnitude Nisqually earthq uake struck the Puget Sound region on February 28, 200 1 , Seatde's historic Pioneer Square was among the hardest hit. Several of the district's brick facades crumbled u nder the temblor, and many more b u i ldings were deemed unil1 habit­ able. One of those was the Com pass Center, a homeless shelter with histori-

cally Lutheran roots dating back to the 1 920s. The earthquake struck Wednesday. By Friday, the Compass Cen ter was red­ tagged - decermined u nsafe by public safety officials. "In hindsight," said Cindy Jackson ' 7 1 , Compass Center develo p men t directOr and daughter of Kenneth Johnson, longtime dean o f PLU's school o f edu-

cation, "it might have been the best thing that ever happened us." In the years since, the Compass Center has u ndergone a $ 1 6.5 m i llion, fo ur-year rebuilding effort at i ts o rigi­ nal Pioneer Square location. The refur­ bished (and earthquake safe) down­ tOwn facility reopened in June of 2005, one of 14 Com pass Center facilities i n King County. The new facility enabled

'Commander Salamander' wins science award avid Wake '58 thought he wo uld become a lawyer when he fi rst arrived at PLU. But by the t l me he graduated with a bachelor's in biology, he realized that zoology was his true love. Now a researcher at the Un iversity of California- Berk ley, Wake's fervent in ter­ est in plant ,ln d ani mal diversity endur s, and has earned him the nick­ name " ommander Salamander." \Vake, who earned a doctorate in biology a t t h e Univers ity o f Southern Cal i fornia after leaving PLU, has spent m uch of his career studying amphibious crea­ t u res, and in particular, the steady decline of species around the world. I n recognition of this work, h e recently received the p restigious Joseph Leidy Award from the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. M uch of Wake's career has unfolded a UC Berkeley, where he arrived in the late '60s after a few years o f teaching at the University of Chicago. Wake has si nce been a fixture at Berkeley. He cur-



ren t ly sponsors graduate students and continues to add to a prolifi c body of researc h. He has published more than 300 papers du ring his career. Wake enjoys gardening and spending time with h is family. But he says the concept o f slowing down is diffic u l t for h i m to embrace. "I can't even consider retirement because I love what I'm doing," \Vake said. "Work is my hobby." B)' fngrid Stege1l1odler '07

Nadonal society fetes chemistry alum obert Krieger '67 came ro PLU in January 1 9 63 wi t h two primary goals in mind. "I wanted to play foot­ ball," said Krieger. " I wanted to get a n education, too." Back then, Krieger'S career plans were to graduate fro m PLU and find a job somewhere teaching bio logy and coach­ i ng football. B u t those plans changed

when a PLU adminis trator suggested Krieger consider graduate school. Krieger took the suggestion to heart. H e graduated fro m PLU cum laude in 1 96 7 with a bachelor's degree i n chemistry. H e then attended Cornell University, where h e studied entomolo­ gy and, i n 1 970, earned his doctorate. For the last 12 years, Krieger h as taught entomology at the University of California-Riverside, where he studies the e ffects of agricul tural pesticides i n people, ani mals and plants. H i s research recently earned h i m honors at the American Chemical Society'S 229th National Meeting in San Diego. ''I'm more of an educator than any­ thing else," Krieger said. He lives in Riverside, Calif., wi th his wife of20 years, Ana. He h as th ree daugh ters and a son. Krieger praises PLU and said he has not had better i nstructors anyv/here. "I had a very good experience," Krieger said. "I am always looking for PLU students to join the graduate p ro­ gram here." BJ' ",1cbel Yotmg '06

Maples heads Defense Intelligence Agency t. Gen. Michael Maples '77 says his father taught him that every person has the power to make a difference. " Do your best and you'll always be satisfied," Maples said, reflecting on his father's ph ilosophy. It has served him well during his 35 years in the U.S. Army. I n Novembe r 2005, Maples was appointed director of the Defense Intelligence Agency near Washington, D.C., where he oversees global intelli­ gence for the Defense Department. Maples' mili tary service also has included time as a commander in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert StOrm, on the Balkan Peninsula and in Europe duri ng the Cold War. Despite such a demanding career, Maples said the most important part of

h is life has always been family, including his \;Vife, Lynne, and their three daugh ters. A history buff, Maples is studying his family's genealogy. Recently, he traced his wife's fam ily rootS back to Norway. "It's fascinating research to understand how the family moved," Maples said. Concact with fellow PLU alumni is dif­ ficult because of the distance. But Maples said he still holds PLU in high regard. "I'm proud of PLU, what it brings to the nation and what students will do."

MLKBallet brings dance to Tacoma's Hilltop fter grad uating from PLU, Alexa Folso m-Hill '04, Kate Monthy '04, Amy Kostelecky-Roe '04 and Nicole Steele '04, began collaborat­ ing on a new children's ballet school in Taco ma's Hilltop neighborhood. The partners attribute their enterprise to PLU's emphasis on community serVIce. "It's from PLU that we realized we could do this," said Folsom-H ill. PLU's focus on serving others gave them confidence that they can make a difference, Monchy added. "I saw the world as approachable," said Monthy. M LKBaUet, a not-for-profit organiza­ tion in tended to make the arts more accessible fo r children ages fo u r and older, expects to begin operations by January 2007. Developmen t of the pro­ gram, which will be free for all partici­ pants, draws on each alum na's strengths. Folsom- H ill, in charge of co mmunity involvement efforts, said she and her partners divided tasks by asking two questions: " '\Vhat are you good at?' And, ' h ow can we use what you are good at in our project?' " Monthy, a professional dancer, serves as M LKBal iet's artistic director. Steele handles the business side. Kostelecky­ Roe directs fund raising. In preparation for the opening of MLKBallet, the quartet recently launched a campaign called "Sponsor the Dancer."

Each $50 donation will provide one child with instruction, a uniform, lessons, the chance to take parr in a public perform­ ance and more. Donations can be made to: Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, c/o ML KBaUet, P.O. Box 1 9 95, Tacoma, WA, 9840 l . By Morgan Root '09

Savalli tackles the big picture in Spokane news hen Carla Savalli '86

wastes no time singling out communication professor Cliff Rowe as a major influence. " He stressed in tern­ ships," she said. "I had a differem interns hip each summer, and the last one landed me a fu ll-time reporting job at the Tacoma News Tri bune."

Over the years, Savalli worked at sev­ eral newspapers, ultimately re[LIming to her native Spokane, Wash., in 1 9 92. Starting at the copy desk at the Spokesm an-Review, Savalli " p este re d " her way into the night assistal1t city edi­ tor position, ulti mately rising to the number three slot on the editorial lad­ der this January. As senior editor for local news, Savalli jokes that she still doesn't have a job description. But her mandate is clear: tackle the "big picture issues" that face Spokane and the Inl a.lld Northwest. "My job is to make SLlre our values get into the paper each day," she said. "I loved my ti111e at PLU," SavaUi recalled. "It was global in its philosophy, and still small enough to give me the attention I needed. It says a lot about the ed Llcation I received that I never felt the need to go and get a higher degree." � H)' S/(,/'(' Hansen
