The imp ort a n t work to o u tfit the c a m pus with the l a test t e c h n o l o gy is a l l u nde rgro u n d.

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 www.plu.edu/ Jama/projects. for an ongoing look at the construction of the Morken Center, visit UJww.pht. edu/webcams.

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 the.ir 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." �

ALUMS IN CONGRESS LOIS CAPPS AND RICK LARSEN MAKE THEIR VOICES HEARD IN THE OTHER WASHINGTON BY TOM

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

o

PHOTOGRAPHY BY GR E G D OHl E R

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. »

FIGHTING TO PROTECT 'MOST VULNERABLE"

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,"

10

PlU SCENE FAll 2005 > FEATURES

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.

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. After deciding to major in political sci­ ence, the high-flying Larsen was dis­ mayed ro find h imself enro lled in a required microeconomics course taugh t b y Marlen M iller. "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. "I t'S my job ro figure our how ro try and satisfy all these different needs and aspirations - and thar's why I'm glad I grew up with seven brothers and sisters. When you come frol11 a large family like that, you learn a thing or two about the importance of speaking up for what you want . . . and also aboU[ rhe vital impor­ tance of compromise." ffil Tom Nt/gent is a free/ance IIJI7ter in Washington, D.C

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.

Un fo rt u na tely, we see t h i s scenario p l ayed out in co nfli c ts ac ro s s t h e glob e ,

co m m u n i ­ ties and our own ho useholds. Tdevision talk show hosts seem particularly glee­ fu l if they can n u dge peopk i n to spite­ fu l battle with others on t h e i r program. And n e wsc a s ts are often fil led with sto­ ries of cou rtroom drama where the fam­ il ies of vi c tims r a n t a n d rave, calling fo r the perpetrator of a pa rti cu lar crime to s u ffe r as they have suffered. To follow th is road, however, one seldom discov­ ers healing, reconcil iation, peace or new life. Desmond Tutu, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and retired arch bish o p of South Africa, h as written a n i ntrigu ing book, "No Fu ture Without Fo rgivene ss ."

the past. Forgiveness is recognizing that we are not in control.

-Rev. Rick Rouse Many in o u r wor l d choose the more common path and choose to l ive with unresolved anger, guilt or shame. As a pastOr, 1 have counseled with in dividu­ als w h ose lives h ave been devastated, p u t on h o ld or seem to be leading down

a p a th o f se lf-des tru c t i o n .

I remember with an SO-year- ol d woman tol d me that she had been raped

m e et i n g

She me that her parents refused to bef ieve her, op ti ng fo r denial, and for years it was the " fam i l y secret." As a consequence, she lived with guilt and shame fo r nearly 70 ye a rs and never allowed any man to touch her or get close to her. Now in a retirement ho me , s h e finally fo u n d some peace and hea l i n g t h roug h p rayer an d co un se l ing. 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.

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

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.

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."

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.

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."

PLU crew star takes his love of rowing all the way to world championships LU crew standout Bjorn Larsen '03 had competed at many levels, but gerring co the world championships i n J apan ];]5C su mmer puc him in a whole new echelon. "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

fuushed. And. with rus recent gift to PLU, that IS even more the case. 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,

he said. What does this mean for PLU students? According to Becvar, the answer is easy. "When students have the chance to read the day's scnpts - what's current fight now - they are so much more sophisticated i n their craft. " he said. "They are better prepared. because they know exactly what's going on outside PLU. "
