environmental research a sunny day last May, a small group of facu lty members and alumni donned waders and trudged into Clover Creek. Under the watchful guidance of envi­ ronmental studies faculty, the group learned how co collect field data about the creek - the same type of work stu­ dents in the "Environmen tal Methods of I nvestigation" course learn to do. The field trip was part of a three-day workshop to evaluate the environmen­ tal studies curriculum. The workshop was one of several proj­ ects funded by a $90,000 grant the envi­ ronmental studies program received from the Wiancko Charitable Foundation in December 2007. It also supported three student-faculty research teams, a research retreat and provided min i-grants for environmental projects. "We want to use the funds in a way that makes the maximum impact for PLU, but also for the environment," explained William Teska, professor of biology and chair of environmental studies. "We want to make the world a better place, and to make our region a better place." The grant provides a unique opportu­ nity to move the already strong envi­ ronmental studies program to a truly s u perb one, while also building on its i nte rdiscipli nary nature, Teska said. This interdiscipli nary approach was evident in the first round of student­ faculty research p rojects: one led by assistant biology professor Michael Behrens examining prickleback fishes; another by Claire Todd, visiting assis­ tant geosciences and environ mental s tudies professor, looking at climate change on Mount Rainier; and the third by philosophy professor E rin McKenna to study meat p roduction and the environment. "We utilize interdisciplinary studies here because we truly want to come

together to solve environmental prob­ lems," Teska said.

Faculty selects general education program. his spring, faculty voted to adopt a revised General Education Program, ending a fo ur-year process.

The program consists of aca­ demic elements all students must complete as part of PLU's liberal arts education. According to the program's description, it "prepares gradu­ ates to ask significant q ues­ tions, e ngage relevant knowl­ edge, and wrestle with complex issues." It goes into effect for the 2009-10 academic year. Three faculty committees worked on the process, writing the principles of the program in the first year, then researching other insti tutions and cre­ ating guidelines the following year The fi nal two years examined various mod­ els for the program, said Erin McKenna, philosophy professor and fo rmer faculty chair. D uring the study, the commi ttee sought feedback on numerous occa­ sions from faculty, staff and students. Overall, the biggest refinements were made to the social science and religion

elements, as well as the pers pectives on diversity, McKenna explained. "We were trying to take things that seemed confusing and complex, and tried to show coherence and cohesion to the program," she said. So rhe revised program doesn't sim­ ply collect dust for another decade, a position was created i n the Office of the Provost to oversee the revised gen­ eral education program. On Sept. I,Jan Lewis, currently associate dean and professor of instructional development and leadership, became the associate provost for cu rriculum and assessment.

Fulbright awards scholarships to three alums h ree PLU alumni were awarded Fulbright scholarships for srudy overseas this fall. Ericka Hummel '08 and Daniel Wilson '06 will spend the year teaching English as a second language in Germany. Jennifer Henrichsen '07 will study press protection in connict situa­ tions while completing an adval1ced master's degree in international and European security in Geneva, Swirzerland. The rrio brings the total nu mber of PLU students to receive the prestigiolls award to 79. Troy S torfjell, assistant professor of Norwegian and Scandinavian Srudies, serves as the Fulbright program advisor, helping students with their appLications. Hu mmel is looking forward to being immersed in the German culture, and having the opportunity to share her culture. "It's what the Fulbright is all abou t," she said. "The world is becoming a smaller place, and learning to identify with other culrures matters in every aspect of life, from politics to econom­ ics to education." The Fulbright program was founded in 1 946 to promote " i nternational good will through the exchange of stu­ dents in the fields of education, culture and science." It operates in more thall 1 40 counrries. 6

PLU's commitment to the earth lauded he Tacoma Pierce County Chamber of Commerce awarded PLU its 2008 Tahoma Business Envi ronmental Award. The annual award recognizes an

entreprene urial effort that meets a high standard of excellence for environmen­ tal preservation and prorccrion accom­ plishments. PLU was honored for irs ou rsranciing commi tment to projecrs in environmental sustainability. PLU was lauded for developing an inte­ grared approach to make susrainability a campus priority. The university has raken a leadership role in local, regional and even narional forums, and irs planning, operations and program pracrices ref1ecr irs commirment to the canh.

The campus community honored for making sustain ability a priority.

Jason Bru n e , exec utive director of the Resource Deve l o pm e nt Council of Alaska, tlOnors PLU President Loren J. Anderson for the u n iversity's commitment to the environme nt.

A number of endeavors also demon­ strate this commirment. These include consrrucring new and remodeled build­ ings to the U.S. G reen Building Council's Leadershi p in Energy and Environmen tal Design standards, sup­ porting student Sustainability Fellows ann ually and purchasing 20 percent of its energy from renewable sources. Additionally, PLU's Campus Master Plan sets forth a n umber of lofty goals, among which are the following: to become carbon neutral by 2020, reduce energy use 25 percent and reduce water use 20 percent by 20 1 1 .

Formcrly the Washington Education Foun dation, the organization provides assistance to low-income, high-potential students in Washington. Scholarship re.cipients also receive mentor suppOrt from college faculty and staff, and guid­ ance from the admission and financial aid offices. The foundation cu rrently administers five scholarshi p p rograms: the Achievers Scholarship Program, Chateau Stc. Michelle Scholarsh i p fund, Costco Scholarship Fund, Leadersh ip 1000 Scholarship and Was hington State Governor's Sch olarship for Fostcr Youth. The fi rs t cohorr o f Achievers Sc holars at PLU included 17 students. That num­ ber has grown nearly every year, and this past academic year, PLU welcomed 1 J 7. Over the past scvcn years, 215 Achievers Scholars have come to the university. Addi tional ly, PLU's had five Governor's Scholars, one Leadership 1000 Sc ho lar and tWO Take A i m Scholars (the program is no longer fu nded). In all, the 223 scholarship recipients received more than 54.5 million from the foun­ dation. The fo undation's CEO a. n d chair, Bob Craves, was recently awarded the Stanley O.

ix years ago, Candice Hughes '08 realized that, despite her ambi­ tion, college juSt wasn't in the cards. As consolation, the Trinidad and Tobago native dreamed of figuring ou[ a way to go back to school part-time in a few years. Her opportunity emerged juSt two years later with the advent of a unique exchange program, fo rged bet\Veen PLU and the Trinidadian government. For more than a decade, PLU has been sending students for a semester of study on the Caribbean island nation, located JUSt off the coast of Venezuela. In 2004, the program sought three Trinidadian students to study along­ side PLU students in PLU-designed courses and at the Un.iversity of the West Indies. "Our stu dents were going do\Vn there, having a rich experience and gaining so much, but we weren't really giving back to Trin idad," explained English profes­ sor Barbara Temple-Th.urston, founder and director of the program. "I though t it would be lovely if we could do a real exchange." And thus, a "real" exchange was i mplemented. The Trinidadian students wo uld live with the PLU students, take courses alongside them, be immersed in the cultural life of the islands and com­ plete a service-learning project. At the semester's conclusion, the most prom­ ising student would receive a four-year scholarship to PLU, funded jointly by PLU and Trinidad's Ministry of Community Development, Cu lture and Gender Affairs. Hughes jumped at the chance. "I learned about the program and I was like, 'Are you kidding me?'" she said in her Caribbean-accented English. "It was a complete, complete blessing." To be accepted, local students must have excellent grades, a successful inter­ view with PLU facu lt), and ministry rep­ resen tatives, and be involved in their country's "Prime Minister's Best Vil lage Trophy Competition," a year-round program that highlights the traditional c u l tures, including music, food, dance, d rama and Sports. It seeks to preserve and build pride in the nation's diverse trad itions, Temple-Thurston explained. Hughes was part of the first trio accepted to the program. And, after studying alongside PLU students, she was chosen as the first to come to

Tacoma to complete her degree. Hughes marked another m ilestone for the program this past May, gradu­ ating with a bachelor's degree in geo­ sciences and serving as the senior class speaker. "I came in as a girl from Trinidad, and I'm leaving as a world ci tizen," Hughes sa id. "The things that I've been exposed to, and all the students I've lTlet and exchanged ideas with have opened up my lTlind to a whole differ­ ent way of thinking."

(7 came in as a girl from

Trinidad) and I'm leaving as a world citizen. The things that I've been exposed to) and all the students I've met and exchanged ideas with ha·ve opened up my mind to a whole different way of thinking. » At PLU, Hughes immersed herself in campus l i fe. She participated in theater and Dance Ensemble, held leadership roles in the Diversity Center and ASPLU, and spearheaded the fi rst cam­ pus Caribbean Carnival in February 2006. The now-annual event s howcases the dance, music and history of Trinidad and Tobago, provi des an out­ let for the program's participants to demonstrate what they learned, and exposes the students who don't study away to another culture, she explained. To top it all off, Hughes even fit in a semester studying environ mental issues in Botswana. "We don't waik around thinking PLU's got diversity. We see a lot of the same people, but we are diverse, in more ways than one," she said. To make her point, she cites the active international s tudent communi­ ty, the breadth of academic disci plines the university offers and the varied backgrounds of its students, faculty and sta ff. I n four years at PLU, she's broadened her understanding of the world and her place in it. " It's a two-way street," she explained. "It's not just that we've been coming

and giving PLU all this d iversity We have been gaining so much, too." Her transformation from "a girl from Trinidad" to a "world citizen" started that first semester, when she lived and learned alongside PLU students in her native land. She gladly served as a resource for the PLU students, but she also learned a great deal about ber culture. Culture is a key theme of the pro­ gram. Due largely to its colonial past, Trinidad and Tobago are home to a rich mix of religions and ethnicities, from African and East Indian to Chi nese, Syrian and Portuguese. Trinidadians express great pride in their diversity through a variety of festivals. The PLU program is designed to explain the deeper historical roots that anchor these festivals, Temple-ThurstOn said. According to Hughes, the knowledge she gained in the program makes her a better Trinidadian and a better ambas­ sador for her country. Cu rren tly, there are six Trinidadian students studying on the PLU campus as part of this program. Through their work in campus organizations and clubs - and by simply living in the resi­ dence halls and attending class - they are having a profound effect on the PLU cam pus. " Everybody knows about them. Who ever thought about Trinidad and Tobago before:>" Temple-Thurston asked. "The program has heightened awareness of our Caribbean neighbors and the issues we face in a globalized world. Now almost any PLU student knows where Trinidad and Tobago is, they know somebody from it or they know so mething about the culture. It's remarkable." The pressure of being tbe firs t StU­ dent supported by the joint scholars hip was high. But Hughes rose to the chal­ lenge, building a strong fouodation and placing high expectations on the subse­ quent scholarship winners. Listening to the 25-year-old speak today, she exudes self-con.fidence. She's poised, enthusiastic and excited to return to Trinidad this fall to begin her next challenge: working closely with PLU and the cultural ministry to promote the study aIVay program and the opportlLl1ities it presents for future students. 130th PLU and the Caribbean nation are better for it.[§] -l'vlegan Haley Anderson PLU SCENE FAll 2008 > LIFE OF THE MIND 9

Bridget Yaden: I've definitely seen technology change teaching. I've seen access to resources by stu­ dents improve. Our first-year lan­ guage classes meet only three hours a week, and that's not near­ ly enough time to become profi­ cient in a language, so the access to resources via the Internet has really changed the way we teach. Now students can have 24-hour access to information. They don't have to wait for the language lab to open. Greg Johnson: There is greater access to research material in gen­ eral. For instance, there are sever­ al places where you can actually read primary sources that before were only available in hard copy. This accessibility to such resources is a nice change. Rose McKenney: I think the infor­ mation explosion and new tech­ nologies are a very beneficial resource. It's almost impossible to have access to science articles with­ out the resources on the Internet.

Yaden: Particularly for language learning, I've used Skype video for live interactive conversations with native speakers anywhere in the world. It's a powerful tool. In January, one of our classes was talking with children in China. The quality was amazing. It's safe to say we'll probably use this for our beginning Spanish courses, where we have programs in Mexico and Spain. Or students might use these resources before they study abroad to get some practice time with native speakers. Spencer Ebbi nga : I think there is a lot of flash and bang with new technologies, and some do have useful applications. The problem is when students do not learn the

Johnson: Even though there are

benefits from this technology, it can also be a kind of "gateway drug," either to introduce students to bad habits or enable their already bad ones. What is needed is to discuss with students how sources such as Wikipedia can be used and when it can be used best. So, we can ask, "What's the place of Wikipedia in particular, or other Internet sources in general, in generating scholar­ ship like term papers?" Wells: So how do you use it? Johnson: Well, I am tempted to say that the Internet is like the sacred: it both repels and attracts you! As I indicated, the question about Wikipedia for me is what place should it have in the educational process. To say you should never use Wikipedia is simply out of

touch with what is actually being done. I use it and I tell my students that I use it. This does not, however, mean I use it as a primary resource. So, one of the things I've tried to do with students is talk about when to use Wikipedia and what is an appropriate way to If, for example, you're doing a research paper, Wikipedia might open up questions in a different way and it might point you to bet­ ter resources such as, in my case, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, which is a very good source and often a link to some Wikipedia entries on philosophy. Again, it's a question of what con­ stitutes a resource, when is it best used and to what end.

ence from listening to and watch­ ing students, however, is that this might not be the case. With stu­ dents, what's virtual is real, whereas often the face-to-face is, dare I say, the virtual. Think of Facebook and MySpace, or their online avatars, 1M identities, and so on. These are not just virtual; rather these are real for them. And I think this causes some diffi­ culty for those who see the Internet as just some virtual, not real place we go to be something we really are not in our face-to­ face relations. Students are lead­ ing the way in challenging some of these presuppositions, and I think faculty should engage these changes. For me these are funda­ mental philosophical questions about reality, the self and a host of other questions that are taking on new forms. It's exciting even if students embody a challenge to some deeply held beliefs about such questions. McKenney: In the sciences, there

are parts of technology where stu­ dents master it hands-down. Funny thing is, for example, I don't have a cell phone, which makes me a technical illiterate in that area compared with students. But many students have a huge knowledge gap and cannot per­ form tasks with technology that I find to be simple, like how to clip text out of a PDF. With faculty, I think some of the apprehension comes into play in that if the tech­ nology you're using or learning in class fails, it's going to be in front of 40 people. Every ... single ... time.

Ebbi nga: I think the teacher has to have command of the subject, and if the students are way ahead of you, in this case, in the area of technology, that can be challeng­ ing. You have to know how to handle the situation. I have a student in class now that is like that, so I have to work cre­ atively to keep him interested in

Wells: How can faculty get over our apprehension? Or should we? If using rock, paper, scissors works for you, shouldn't you stick with it? McKenney: I use lots of rocks! But seriously, I think in geology, you can at times look at a virtual image of a rock with good results. But there will always be times when you want to use actual rocks. Johnson: Well, there is a degree of

narcissism in being a faculty mem­ ber. I mean, we have advanced degrees and we know everything! So, when we are confronted with something we don't know, such as new technologies, it's intimidating to the say the least. But more importantly it may be resisted because it challenges assumptions about ourselves.

McKenney: I have a Facebook page, but I use it to communicate with people in the field. I don't use it in any other way. Johnson: I do have a page. I start­

I have a pro­ file and I use it to communicate with students and for office hours. Are these hours "real" or "virtu­ al?" All I know is that it has worked well ... until the semester is over and I usually delete these students from my "friend" list. Many, I have found, are absolutely offended to no end. They come up to me and say, "You deleted me from your list of friends! Why?" And I'd look at them, and say

The Department of Art at Pacific Lutheran University presented an exhibition of devotional images and objects drawn from the work of accom­ plished iconographer Kathy Sievers and from the collection of Executive Director of the Wang Center Neal Sobania, and his wife, Elizabeth. Sievers' work continues the centuries-old tradi­ tion of the Christian icon, a form with deep roots i n the Byzantine and Eastern Christian churches. The Sobania's exempl ary collection features icons, illuminated scrolls, and parchment Bibles from the Christian communities of Ethiopia. Together these vibrant bodies of work demon­ strate the enduring power of the image in contem­ porary global Ch ristian ity. The exhibit took place J u ly 28 th rough August 22.

Campus bike co-op gets rolling t is not j ust PLU employees who are seeking better, more sustainable and less expensive ways of getting to and from campus. Scudents are thinking about this too. And one student, with a few abandoned bikes, is doing some足 thing aboU[ it. Senior Eric Pfaff opened PLU's first bike co-op this fall, an opportunity for students to run errands, commute to work or school, or ocherwise get around . withoU[ having co fi ll up a gas tank. And, it's healthy. The program was kick-s tarted with 4 PLU SCENE WINTER 2008 > HERE & NOW

the donation of nine bicycles that had been sitting unused in Harstad Hall's basement for more than two years presumably abandoned by former stu足 dents. Pfaff and his team starred fixi ng up the bicycles for use by the co-op. After working out the fee structure and liability issues, Pfaff said most of the bikes were rented out on a per-semester basis, at a fee of no more than $20 a semester. The goal, after all, is to get people b icycling - not make money. The co-op will be more than JUSt rentals. "The u ltimate goal of the co-op is to develop more of a bicycle culcure on campus," said Pfaff.

PLU and the post足 American world LU President Loren ]. Anderson told an audience of academics and u niversity staff in September that PLU is right on point in educating our students for a changing world. It's a world, he added, that faces higher oil prices and a lower standard of living as a crowded globe tries to survive on fewer resources. "It's been a shocking year for the global village," Anderson said, mark i n g his 1 7th State of t h e University address ti tled " PLU and the Post-American World."

D u ri n g his 1 7th State of t h e U n iversity Address, President Loren J . A n d e rson challenged students to discover the true meaning of succ ess.

Yet, Anderson said he was proud of the graduates who take leadership posi­ tions in an increasingly challenging world. "Our graduates are prepared to live and serve in a difficult and often con­ flicting world," he told the audience at Olson Auditorium during his address. "And I think," he continued, "that they are equipped with the moral framework to do this," through PLU's focus on world outreach and travel, service at home, and an interdisciplinary program that looks at problems from a 360degree perspective. Anderson said that the state of the university, " is remarkably sound, our momentum is significant and positive and, given our Lutheran heritage and vision fo r service, the future is both inviting and exciting ! "

However, especially in the area of energy conservation, PLU staff and students need to be conscious of turning off the lights or reducing the hear. After President Anderson's State of the University address, about a dozen faculty and students talked about how the cam­ pus was doing in its conservation goals, including having a zero carbon footprint by 2020, and what each was doing to try to achieve that end. Professors also spoke on how they try to reinforce the message of sustainabi li­ ty in their respective fields and classes. One of the b iggest challenges is to bring home the environmental impact of everyday habits, noted Brian Naasz, assistant che mistry p rofessor and chair

of PLU's sustainab iliry commi ttee. Jim Albrecht, associate professor of English and S usan Harmon, associate professor of business, spoke of hO\\l they bring sustainability issues into their classrooms through books, or p rojects such as finding out why more students don't take the bus. Jill Whi tman, professor of geo­ sciences, has her students do an autop­ sy of PLU garbage cans to find out how much of the trash could reall), be recycled. "These problems are overwhelming'!), big," Whi tman noted. But by showing students how small changes can make a difference, it can make the p roblems more manageable, she said.

PLU f a c u lty have been c o n s i d e ri n g ways to reinforce sustai n a bility issues in the classroom.

"We are enormously pleased co have been funded for the second round and are excited co continue our work begun six years ago." With a match from the university, the 6 PLU SCENE WINTER 2008 > HERE & NOW

The gram will also cominue the enhancemem of China-based cur­ riculum in classrooms, and the supporr of China workshops here and travel tours to China.

Academic quality reconfIrmed by outside examiners --.....he university'S accreditation was formally reconfirmed this s u m­ mer by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Un iversities at the conclusion of a cwo year self-study and peer review. Once every 10 years every university

performs a comprehensive self-srudy of the effectiveness of its programs and welcomes a review of that self-study by a team of outside examiners from simi­ lar institu tions. The srudy, known as an accreditation review, is performed by nongovernmen­ tal, volumary professional associations that have responsibility for establish ing criteria evaluating institutions against the criteria, and approving institutions that meet the criteria. In its reporr, the com m ission's visit­ ing team p raised the university for "the clear understanding demonstrated by faculty, srudems and staff both of the m ission of the university and the strate­ gic goals of p urposeful learning, inter­ national education and srudent-faculty collaborative research." Faculty leadership and academ ic pro­ gram developmem were also praised. I n parricular, t h e review team commended the faculty for "their involvement in the process of curricular design on behalf of their srudents." PLU President Loren ]. Anderson said the accreditation review "is an affinna­ tion of the mission, programs and people of PLU. We can justifiably be proud.

"The university's claims to academic excellence are well understood by those of us on campus and they are certainly well founded. B u t now our distinction has been independently corroborated by tbe strong and enthusiastic reaffLrma­ tion of our institu tional accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities."

A new grant will help n u rsing students b e better prepared for the care of a n a g i n g popul ation.

Grant to address nationwide nursing shortage he PLU School of Nursing, with three area fou ndations and other partners, will develop an innovative, community-based project to help tackle the regional nursing shortage and give nursing students new competencies in care for om aging population. The Dimmer Family Foundation, the Gary E. Milgard Family Foundation and the Bruce \l\1. Gilpin Memorial Foundation contributed S 1 25,000, along with the S2S0,OOO received fro m the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Northwest Health Foundation to provide a total of $400,000 to launch a gerontologic educa­ tion partnership in Thurston, Pierce, Mason and Kitsap counties. According to Terry Miller, dean of the School of Nursi ng, the project is an original approach ro enhancing nursing education with the goal of producing more qualified nurses who are commit­ ted to the older adult. "This funding will enable us to educate better and more qualified nmses who are professionally developed to offe r consis­ tent and ongoing suppOrt to older ad ults, regardless of the i nstitutional care setting, home situation or the diag­ noses," Miller said.

Donors share value of holocaust education n Oct. 2 1 , more than 1 5 0 peo­ ple gathered for the Second Annual Powell and Heller Family Conference in support of H o l ocaust Education at Pacific Lutheran University. "It is always difficult to know where to begin," Kurt Mayer told the assem­ bled crowd in the Scandinavian Cultural Center. He was talking about the story of his life as a survivor of the Holocaust, bu t the former PLU regent and namesake of the Holocaust Edu cation professor­ ship could have been talking about how to describe the strides the program has made. By remembering the darkness o f history, lessons can be learned, h e said. "It's a remarkable beginning of a new program that b u i lds on PLU's strengths," said Robert Ericksen '67, the Kurt Mayer Professor of Holocaust Studies in the Department of History. Last May, a group of generous donors helped create an endowed professorship, which Ericksen currendy holds.

That co m mitment is evi­ dent in the $ 1 .5 million they have helped raise along with the Mayer family to create a chair position fo r the program.

and will pubLish a new book, " Partly Cloudy: Ethics in War, Espionage, Coverr Acrion and Interrogation," in 2009. Kamin is a speciaLst in military ethics, war theory, philosophy oELaw and applied ethics. Kaurin and Perry met at a 2004 sympc;sium on just-war theory hosted by the Naval Academy in Maryland. Before a packed room of200 people, the cwo sparred over the ethics not only of rorrure, but the ethics of soldiers in a warrime situation. Both came ro the same conclusion, a1bei t traveling di fferent paths. Condoning rorture is nor an option in our sociecy or in our miLirary, they agreed. Yet both added that the United States neverrheless does use rorture, either through the CIA or by sending prisoners ro alLied nations where these practices are considered part of the job. " Whether we like ro think about it or not, torture is happening in some part of the world, right now," Kaurin said. "And it may be happening under the auspices of the U.S. government." Kaurin noted later that there were some professors and staffwho questioned and opposed her even bringing the topic forth for debate. "They were frankly appaUed we were even talking about it," she said. Or appar­ ently, that an alumnus might be making a case for its use. "I hope you don't come away thinl<ing that I believe we should change our laws o n rorture," said Peny recentl),. "I don'r." Perry argued that while rorture might actually work in some cases, U.S. treacy obligations (under the Geneva and TOITure conventions) caregorically prohib­ it both military and CIA personnel from using rorrure or other cruel, inhuman or degrading trearll1ent in interrogations even of suspected terrorists. Drawing on recent books like Jane Mayer's "The Dark Side," he claimed that afrer 9- 1 1 Presiden t Bush received very poor legal advice from advi sers on the Vice President's staff and in the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel. This advice led ro many of the nororious detainee abuses at Guanranamo and Abu Ghraib. Perry also argued, though, that if the law were silent, terrorists could not plausi­ bly claim an absolute moral right not ro be tortured, having forfeited that right in plotting to murder scores of innocent people. He found that conclusion dis­ turbing, but compelling nonetheless. -

({Ifyou say I only have to be moral when others are moral) J then no one has to be moral because there will always be someone who breaks the rules. JJ -Pauline Kallrin

However, after considering the poten­ tial consequences of legally permitting intelligence officers to use torture against suspected terrorists, especially the probabilicy of their accidentally tor­ turing innocent people, Perry urged the U.S. ro firmly up hold its current treacy obligations and never ro use rorture. Or rather, Congress and the Supreme Court having made it clear in 2006 that military personnel must never use torrure, Perry argued that the same standard ough t to apply to the CIA. Recent polling has shown that the American public is ambivalent, at best, about rhe use of rorrure, said Kaurin. "I don't think the public even took this issue sel-iously uncil 9- 1 1 ," she said. "But I think that has changed public percep­ tion and, in general, they feel vulnerable no\v." After the debate, a srudent basically . asked why America should stick to the rules, when the other side won't. "It's a really difficult question, and I guess it depends what you think rhe

point of the rules are," Kaurin mused later. If rhe goal is to win, at all costs, in the short term, then the choice is simple: Use the most expedient means to get what you want, including torrure, she said. H owever, if you look at what the United States, its democracy and its val­ ues mean to the world, then you have to search for a more long-rerm answer, she argued. "If you value the symbolism that democracy represents and we represent, then you can't look at a short-term strat­ egy," she said. The argument that the United States doesn't need to be or acr moral, because no one else is, is a slope that ends up purting everyone in the ethical muck preny quickly, she said. "If you say 'I only have to be moral when others are moral,' then no one bas to be moral because there will always be someone who breaks the rules," she said. That is one of the reasons there was such ou trage after the Abu Ghraib prison pictures were made public. "Our allies and the Arab world were saying 'You hypocrites,' she said. Wo uld the American public have been as oLltraged if, in fact, they had not seen the pictures of American soldiers, in uni­ form, giving thumbs up over dead bodies or forcing detainees i nto a naked hud­ dle? She doesn't think so. The pictures stripped away rhe public firewal l of torture happening far away, to other people, she said. Sbe noted thar the My Lai massacre story languished on the back pages of the major metropolitan dailies for a year, before the p ictures began to appear in 1969. The release of the picrures show­ ing dead women, children and rhe elder­ ly in ditches, along with the follow-up srories, are considered to be a ke)' rurn­ ing point in the public'S opinion of rhe Vietnam War. In the end, Kaurin concludes that the public, in general, is a bit hypocritical on the issue. For the last 30 )'ears, Amnescy In ternational has been making and prov­ ing these claims that the U.S. uses, and in a wink-wink way, condones torture, she said. "But it's one of those things that we mostly ignore," she said. "You push it aside when you're going ro the grocery srore and trying to make ends meet." [§] -Barbara Clements


WHAT D O E S I T REAL LY MEAN TO { H E L P' P E O P L E ? Six years with Meciecins Sans Frontieres IW M E GAN H A L EY AN D E l O N







ocated h undreds of miles from any road, this village is anchored by a Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) health care center. It p rovides care to the hundreds of people suffering from h unger, disease and the conf1ict of Sudan's 30-year war. All medical sup­ plies must be f10wn in. This is the end of the world. It's a place Ingrid Ford '97 knows well. A graduate of PLU's School of Nursing, she visited the site periodically while working for MSF. She saw the people who traveled hundreds of m iles, often on foot, to be seen by the doctors and n u rses at this remote outpost. This inf1ux of people u nderscores why Ford spent six years with MSF in Africa and hance: she believes access to health care is a basic human right. " I don't care where you live or what your government is or what you r reli­ gious beliefs are or that you're 1 ,000 kilometers from the closest road," she said, her p iercing blue eyes f1ashi ng. "You're a human being, and that means,

at the minimum, we need food, water, shelter, health care, freedom." As a child, the Anacortes, Wash., native knew she wanted to work over­ seas. She never i magined how that one thought would shape the trajectory of her life, taking her from Kenya and the Ivory Coast, to New York and Paris. "I think sometimes in the beginning, you can't say why you do what you do," she said. "Sometimes, it's just listening to those little things that don't maybe seem practical." Her career began practically enough. She entered PLU's School of Nursing, but the work Ford would pursue over­ seas coalesced during her senior year when PLU introduced the first study away program for nurses. Along with 1 1 classmates, Ford spent a semester work­ ing in clinics on the Caribbean island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. "\\forking there," Ford recalled, "changes your whole perception abo ut life and what you want to do." After graduation, she spent a few years gaining practical nursing experi-

ence, and then began the process of applying for work abroad. Her cti teria were specific, severely limiting her options. She wanted to focus on med­ ical aid, withou t missionary work or fund raising to pay her way. Only MSF contacted her. She had two strikes against her - she was young and spoke only English. It was her PLU experience in international health care that got her hired. MSF quickly put that experience to the test. Ford first served a year in western Kenya, working in projects providing treatment for tuberculosis and for H IV/AIDS using anti-retroviral drugs. There, she witnessed how the virus has deteriorated the African family struc­ ture. Traditionally, extended families live together. But with an H IV/AIDS infection rate of 40 percent, too many children are left orphaned. G randparents, aunts and uncles are unable to care for all of them.

l ate- n i g h t ca b r i d e Ma urice Eckstein becomes 'the guy' a t PL U

au rice Eckstein was riding home in a cab after his shift as the night concierge at a hotel in his native Tri.nidad when his eye sropped on an advertisemem.

"Working at the funeral home was one of the most rewarding jobs I've had," Eckstein says. There was the hu man ele­ ment, bur also, he was an event planner. "Ir was rewarding ro be 'the guy' that everyone came ro in a difficult s irua­ tion," he says.

It o ffered local srudems the chance ro m ix with a g roup of visiting PLU Stu­ dems in an exchange program between PLU and the University of the West Indies. A lucky few would get a chance ro study at PLU on a full-ride scholar­ ship.

He quickly became " the guy" at PLU, roo - though the circumstances were obviously better. Even as a first-year S[U­ dent, he got involved and started the Lute Explosion African Dance Group. He's handled public relations for the Inrernational Club on campus. He became a student-government senaror for imernational students. His evem planning skills came in handy as he helped organize the Campus Carnival i n 2008, which emphasized t h e culture o f Trin idad a n d Tobago.

A long-held dream of being the first i n h i s family r o complete a college degree snapped inro focus on that taxi ride home. A year later Eckstein, a commu­ nications major who hopes ro pursue a career i n public relations or broadcast journalism, says that advertisement changed his life. After graduating high school, there was no money for college and Eckstein Ivorked an eciecric set of jobs that included night-desk concierge, a call-cenrer staffer and a funeral home direcror.

Big steps for someone who, a little more than a year ago, saw his life's possibili­ ties change in a taxi cab. PLU can do that to people. m:J

find it

is imp ossible to be ap athetic when I have the awesome opportunity to b e a first witne ss to history.

-Jenn Henrichsen

"I e-mailed one of the authors ask i ng for the report, and foun d that the author was a journalist who worked at the U.N., and whose office was literally a five-minute walk from my computer d esk in the library, " she recalled. " I walked to his office, received the report, set up an interview, and before I knew it, I had my research topic for the Wang Center grant." The grant lead to additional trips to Geneva while at PLU, a speaking e ngageme nt at a national conference, and the Fulbright proposal. And the Fulbright proposal led to well, who kn ows? That part of Henrichsen's life hasn't been written yet. There certainly is no shortage of oppor­ tunity ahead. For the time being, Henrichsen will continue to immerse herself in her masters program, while co ntinuing to work on her French and G erman language skills, as well. To do that in Geneva invigorates her. "When I'm in a press conference [at the U.N.) I feel like the world is literally at my fingertips," she said. "That kind of information is exhilarating. I find it is impossible to be apathetic when I have the awesome opportunity to be a first witness to history." For most PLU students, and certainly for Henrichsen, so many meaningful internatio nal experien ces start in a small office at the northwest corner of campus - The Wang Center for International Programs . Founded by alumnus Peter Wang '60 and his wife, Grace, the two were keenly interested in finding ways to prepare students for lives of leadership and service in an intercon­ nected world . So concerned, they funded the unique center to the tun e of $4 million.


PLU has always focused on international study, but the Wang Center changed the game. It plays a large role i n the fact that more than 40 percent of P L U students study abroad at some point in their career at PLU. The national average is 3 percent. The center has been essential in creating opportunities for students like Henrichsen who have passion for un der­ sta n d i ng the world, firsthan d . "I believe i t was a continuous stream o f support from PLU professors and seized opportunities that e nabled me to follow this path," Henrichsen said. "A turning point for me was my first experience abroad o n PLU's J-Term. That program was the catalyst for all s ubsequent experiences from No rway to the Bal kans to the U . N . in G e neva." PLU has this effect on a I'ot of stude nts. J-Term is short­ hand for January Term, PLU's o n e-month term squeezed between the larger fall and spring semesters. Many PLU students consider it the perfect time to get off campus and see the world. That was certainly the case for Michael Wauters '07, anoth­ er PLU Fulbright recipient who traveled to Ecuador to par­ ticipate in an epid emiological study of Chagas disease. "Being a busy science major, I did n 't think I could take a semester abroad and still complete my d egree. But J -Term fit perfectly and provided the spark to later go abroad longer-term after graduation , " he said. "Coming out of high school I had an interest in biology, but hadn't put any thought into studying abroad," he added. "The plan, if o n e existed, was to graduate and get a job. Obviously this d·id n 't happen. Looking back, I'm quite happy with the road I 've taken."

Americans Abroad

After he spe nt J-Term in Ecuador with biology professor William Teska, Wauters knew he wanted to return to Latin America. He planned to spend a year after gradua­ tion immersed in another culture and working on his Spanish before returning to the U n ited States to attend medical school. When the Fulbright came through, his short-term goals didn't change, but he noted, " I no longer had to sweat the details of funding my dream." !' Wauters spent 1 0 months living in the capital, Quito, with several trips into the country 's rainforest regio ns, gathering! and analyzing blood samples. He has since returned from Ecuador to his Seattle-area home. He is currently utilizing both his science background and his Spanish skills working for AmeriCorps, working in a south Seattle community health clinic that serves an under­ served Latino populatio n. It is likely his next step between med school and, perhaps, a masters in public health. "Immersing oneself in an other culture is an ideal way to challenge, learn and grow on levels you might never have imagi ned," Wauters added. "It is why I believe that PLU and Fulbright support such endeavors so strongly. As he looks back at his time in Ecuador, it is clear it changed his life in ways he could not have imagined. "Hight before I left for Ecuador I met a former


Fulbrighter whose parting advice was something along the lines of 'don't get too caught up in trying to stick with your plans. In all likelihood, your experie nce will be completely different from anything you can imagine and it will be wonderf u l , ' " recalled Wauters. "She cou ldn't have been more right." Half a world away - and still in the middle of her own international journey - it's an opinion in which Henrichsen completely agrees. "I knew when I decided to atte nd PLU five years ago, that I would study abroad. It was one of the elements of why I chose PLU over other colleges, " she recalled. "That said, I could never have predicted that five years from that decision, I would be working as a freelance journalist at the U.N., beginning a rigorous masters program on a Fulbright grant." What in the world will she do next? Good question. One thing is clear: He nrichsen will be prepared to embrace it the moment she gets there. [§J

I r s e c o n d ye a r, B eth H a n n a c o nti n u es to exc e l o n a n d off th e c o u rt fter high school, Beth Hanna knew Division l or Division II volleyball wasn't for her. Not because she wasn't talented enough, but because she needed a more relaxed college experience. Hanna, who stresses academics, wanted to play in a more laid-back atmosphere and ended up choosing Division III PLU. As it turns out, for this n u rsing major, it was just what the doctor ordered. H anna excelled in her first year with the Lutes and was named Division III AVCA Freshman of the Year. Her sec­ ond year has been similarly successful. Halfway through the season she has twice earned Northwest Conference Player of the Week honors and is a con­ ference leader in several offensive cate­ gories. At the season's end, Hanna was again named NWC Player of the Year. "I knew I wanted to go to a smaller school," Hanna said. "I was kind of burnt out toward the end of my h igh school season and I wasn't sure I want­ ed to play at a big school. So, I looked up PLU on my own, along with some other private schools in the Northwest, and I went on a visit and fell in love with the campus and the team. "I really didn't know what to expect. I j ust came and worked my hardest and hoped for the best and I ended up get­ ting playing time immediately. Things were going really well from the start so I was real thankful for that." Her team should be thankful for her efforts too. D uring her freshman year, her 5.34 kills per game were fourth i n the nation and crushed PLU's previous school record of 5 . 0 1 . Her 486 kills tied a single-season kill record set in 1 993 by Rachelle Snowdon. I n addition to being named Northwest Confe rence Player of the Year, the 5-foot- 1 1 outside hitter was the only freshman selected as a first-team All-American. This season, the team had to replace . second team All-America setter Gina Di Maggio and second-team All-NWC selections Megan Kosel and Stacie 22 PLU SCENE WINTER 2008 > ATTAWAY LUTES

Matz. There are no seniors o n the team this year, so Hanna has been called upon to help develop the younger play­ ers on PLU's roster. "We look for her to be more of a leader," Aoki said of Hanna. "I think as a freshman you sort of fall i nto place and just play. B u t as she gets older, we need her to step up and be a leader, and I think she'll do that." Given the way she has excelled at every­ thing else at PLU, it should be no surprise that she turned out to be terrific leader and a great influence on the younger play­ ers. Despite being a younger team, behind Hanna, the Lutes overcame a slow start to win 13 straight conference matches and their fourth NWC crown in the past flve seasons. Hanna's success on the court became even more important to the Lutes when her teammate, junior middle block­ er KelcyJoynt, went down with a knee i njury early in the conference season. Hanna credits much of her success at PLU, on the court and in the classroom, to the low-stress nature of the program. She said she preferred Division III, where there are no athletic scholarships, because she would not be "bound" to the universi­ ty to play volleyball, therefore it would feel less like a job. This approach differs, she says, from the time-consuming, intense club and high school teams she played on. "It was very competitive and I felt like I was already in college," Hanna said of her high school regimen. "I knew I wanted to go somewhere where I could have a whole life, nor JUSt a life of volleyball." A big parr of Hanna's life outside of volleyball is academics. She recently gOt admitted to PLU's School of Nursing, which her coach Kevin Aoki said is no easy feat. Her teammates notice her dedication to her studies as well. "I think she might be the rap student on our team," said Joynt. "Just an amaz­ ing student. All of us don't get as good of grades as she does and she has proba­ bly the hardest major. S he is an extremely hard worker." Amidst all of the success and the acco­ lades thrown her way, Hanna has stayed

grounded. "You wo uld never know by talking to her that she was that talented," Joynt said. "She's o ne of the most h u mble players that I've ever met and that was something that really astounded me. Someone of her caliber playing for one of the top club teams i n Oregon, if nor the top club team, coming to Division III, shows a lot about her as a person as well as a volleyball player, because she could have gone preery much whe rever she wanted." Her ability to stay humble endeared her to her teammates right away and allowed her fit right in. Comfortable in her situa­ tion, she was able to exceed people's lofty expectations of her. "I thought she would be good, but to be first-team All American was a little surpris­ ing," Aoki said. "We've never had a first­ team All-American before, let alone Freshman of the Year. So for us that was a pleasant surprise. BLIt if you looked at her season, ie's nor a surprise because she played so well." In true character, however, Hanna is reluctant to take sole credit for her success. "It was definitely unexpected, but I felt very honored to receive that award," Hanna said of being named Freshman of the Year. "I was j ust so fortunate fo r the team that I had. I played for them and they made me look good. It's my team that l owe it to. I had great upper­ classmen teammates that would help me and give me advice. That helped me more than they even know." "I'm just p roud of all the relationships we've built and that's something that will last forever," said Hanna, "Our vol­ leyball skills may not." In fact, PLU has had a great i n fluence on her. It has allowed her to balance her life on the court with her life off of it. And given her past, she's j ust glad there is a distinction between the t\vo. [ID -

UPON ENTERING THE UNNERSITY CENTER you catch the aroma of fresh kettle corn, hear the voices of singing stu足 dents, and notice the extra splashes of black and gold from the windows of Old Main Market. There is also a table spread with candy. At this point you realize there is something special happening. It's the second annual Lute Fest and it's tailored to fit the theme of "Homecoming 2008: Get in the Game ! " Imagine yourself at a carnival of sorts: a concession stand serving lemonade and Lute-inspired can足 dies, limited edition Lute stadium cups overflowing with kettle corn straight from the kettle, speakers to engage your m ind and performances of all kinds. As one of the many events that makes up Homecoming; all the fun is for the pur足 pose of celebrating the PLU community. This event has the specific purpose of bringing together alumni, students, staff and faculty because, whether they cross the Universi ty Center path daily or j ust for a special occasion such as this, all share a com mon Lute pride. Lute Fest is an idea that occurred to the Alumni and Parent Relations, now Constituent Relations, staff last year.

Family troupe makes sweet music together ome fa mily gatherings might hit a wrong note. But when the Voetbergs assemble, they make sweet muslC. Lisa Marie (Corwin) Voetberg '83, the matriarch of the 1 2-person clan, explains that all family members are i nstru mental or vocal musicians. Together, they comprise The Voetberg Family Band. "Ir's just a fu n way to interacr as a family," said Lisa. Lisa Voetberg said that the family began playing together profess ionally at fi rst it was just for friends in 19 99, at a large ch urch in Olympia, Wash. "I remember getting off the stage, and -

thinking 'Wow, this is fun,'" Voetberg said. An education major while at PLU, Lisa and husband, Joe, now have 1 0 children. Music has become a focal point fo r the family, which calls Centralia, Wash., home. "Our family has been so important to us," Lisa said. "The reason we do music together ... is to have our children with us." The grou p plays a mix of bluegrass, gospel, country, folk and jazz. The Voetberg children range in age from 7 to 24. There is Joby, the oldest at 24, followed by, Brice, 22; Lidd)" 20; E lis ha, 1 8; Annie, 1 6; Lilja, 1 4; Tucker, 1 2; Deter, 10; Vance, 9; and the youngest, 7-year-old Rudy. When the children were younger, Lisa gave them singing instruction. However, as they grew older, the kids took instrument lessons from sources outside the family. Various Voetbergs

now play gui tar, piano, mandolin, cello, bass and fiddle. "Someone introduced us to the fid足 dle," Lisa said, "and that opened a whole new genre fo r us." The family plays hometown and church concerts, weddings, birthday parties and other events, sometimes for free, and sometimes for pay. "You can be a good, smart b usiness person and a musician," Lisa said. The band released their fo urth album, "Wait fo r Me," in the fal l of 2007. All Voetberg recordings are available through The schedule is on the group's MySpace page at www. myspa.ce/voetbergs. Many of the older Voetberg children are now starring to compose their own music, Lisa said. "They do work on th ings on their own," Lisa said. "They are coming up with some pretty cool stuff."

Livi ng a n d givi ng as an example to others i n support of Q Club IT'S All ABOvr helping students attend and thrive a t Pacific Lutheran University. Or at least that's the way that Can Cashen and Jon Grahe see it. Cashen, who at seven-foot-one is known as 'Big Can" around PLU,works as the university's warehouse manager and has worked at PLU for 24 years.

The two are cexhairs for the faculty-stalf portion of the a Oub campaign, They decided to take ttlis leadership role because. as

symbolized by the photograph above, they wanted to stress that. no matter

how big or small, every gift to a Club makes a difference,

In Cashen's case. It was something thaI became dear as he reflected on his

many yean; at PUJ, He believes In the mission of PW and he wants to see

PW cantinue to sucaed. Enabling students through Q Oub is an esseulal

piece of that., reaIizII!d Oller the past few years how important It is 10 give,· he said., guess I rabed 1hat I should have started giVing sooner." Q Oub Is VItal to Padfic t.utf1eran University's ability 10 attract the very

best students and make quaIIty .educatlon affordable for all families.

Tuition only covers n percent of what It costs to educate a student. so gifts to Q Oub are altlcal to PlU. Gifts to Q CJub can be used In four

different ways: support for student scholarships, support in' faculty members seeking to expand and emIch 1f1eJr a.micuIum. SUpport for

student ac:tlYitIes that give balance to sttIdents' _ aIld a general fund

that suppor1S the ara of greatest need. Grah& an aSscx:IMe psydIoIogy pro(essor who an1Yed at PLU bit YI*I

ago, said he glws to Q Cub to set an exarnple far other ptofessots and employees during the annual campaign. "By giving toQ Oub we are contributing 10 the 5UCaI55 ofPW by

Jnaeasfng resourtes for ImpOItalll programs Ilke sd1olllnhfps '" student-faa.dly research." Grahe 5IId. As an added Incenttve.many stiff ., f8QIIty � 1OCIilC

W H E N K I M G U I NN talks about her daug hter Katy's decision to attend PLU, she jokes that she waited " until 5 p.m. on deadline day. " Except, it wasn't much of a joke. With offers from several top

schools, Katy had numerous options, and she was taking her time to carefully evaluate them all. She knew all about PLU her older broth er, Andy, is currently a senior - but she wondered if she might prefer to attend a university where she wouldn't be living In hIs sha dow. As Kim tells It, Katy made the decisIon after one final phone ca ll from a friend who worked in PLU's Office of Admission. d Katy came to me and said ' I think PLU will be the best place



to figure out what I want to do with my l ife . .. •

It Is precisely this type of emphasis on educating �the whole studentU that und erscores why Kim and her husband, Dave. have


such strong supporters of PlU . They value

Impossible, This is where Iver


and Ginny '56 Haugen are helping,

The couple, she a retired teacher and he a retired minister. has given to Q Cl ub for years and has recently funded another scholarship that will enable students to go on study away opportunities, "There are many who go to PLU who are. I'm sure. stretched f i nancially, and this scholarship will help them out." Gi nny Haugen said . "If students have an itch to travel and explore. we want them to be able to scratch that itch." Relaxing in their home that hugs the shores of Amencan Lake. the Haugens draw


their own travels to stress the

importance of a world view in a unIVersity education . Through church and Habitat for the Humanity connections, they have traveled to Mexico, Guatemala, France. Germany. New Zealand, Hawaii, Armenia. Indonesia and Senegal. And no, the Hawaii

trip was not to lie on the beach, Iver Haugen said. "We were In Honolulu for two weeks. and never saw the beach," he said of his Habitat for H uman ity trip . They traveled to Honolulu to build a home for a low-income family there. At least one of their four da ughters has also caught the travel and service bug. with daug hter Lynnell 'S5 and her h usband Kent Herzer '85, joining the Peace Corps and traveling to Armenia . "Travel always


to broaden your view of the world,­

IN MAKING A decision about which cause to give to, retired state appellate court judge Karen Seinfeld uses a short mental sorting process. " I ask myself. What would my life be like if this particular institution or entity didn't exist?'" she said, For her; PLU's arts and cultural programs, as well as support for KPLU, are at the top of her list. It also helps that her son, award­ winning reporter Keith Seinfeld, works for the radio station, "I would really miss KPLU if It wasn't there, H she said of the NPR

affiliate, "I listen to it every day, And I feel that if something is important you should contribute to keep it alive, .. Currently, the Tacoma resident has supported PlU by supporting the Martin 1- Neeb Center, which will be KPW's new home in


The center will Increase KPlU's footprint to more than 1 3, 000 square feet. compared to 5,000 in the current location. It will ,ndude state-of,the-art fadlities, environmentally stable storage for classiC Jazz recordings and improved workspace for employees. A ribbon-cutti n g ceremony is scheduled for January and a formal dedication will take place in October.

Selnfeld also supported the Kurt Mayer Profe5sorsh / p In Holocaust Studies. She is friends with Pam and Kurt Mayer,


well as Chris Browning. a professor of history who taught about the Holocaust at PlU. Brown'ng left PLU

By doing what each does best, coun­ tries achieve economic growth and, im p orranrly, the world's overall stan­ dard of living rises as well. However, increased demand for prod­ uctS that are a region's co mparative advamage may drive prices to a level where the advamage is losr. Japanese labor after \'\;!orld War II was a bargain umil demand for it drove businesses to locate in Korea in the 1 9 70s. Rising labor COStS in Korea make m anufacrur­ ing in Thailand, or Viernam, that much more attractive to employers. Evemually - in the very long run labor COS ts should become more equi­ table across nations for equivalent tal­ enr. Thanks ro the Imernet, which offers global, ins tam and virrually free communication, chemists in India can now compete with chemists in Germany, b u r for abour one-fourth the cosr. Increasingly, accounrams, radiol­ ogists, engineers and - most obviously - software programmers in low-cost countries deliver high-quality results at much lower cost to clients everywhere. As high-paying jobs are lost ro lower­ cos t providers in emerging markets, many people watch their standard of living decrease. The U.S. in a globalized workforce

For most people, th is is not news, but merely Econom ; cs 1 0 1 . However, many of these same people are OUt­ raged when local companies bu ild new planrs, find lower-cost suppliers, or locate call cemers and professional services in India or Chi na. A plam manager in China rold me a few years ago that his company's m an­ ufacturing operations in the Uni ted Kingdom paid workers the equivalem of abo u r $18 per hour, while workers at his Chinese plam - ISO 9000 certi­ fied, by the way - were berrer trained and more productive, and were paid the equivalem of $ 1 per hour. B usinesses will naturally migrate in search of lower costs, and those that do not must compete on orher facrors than price. Why should anyone be sur­ prised at this? Isn't movement in cost­ saving direcrions, really, inevitable? Emerging economies are growing 62


ever more powerful. The so-called BRIC counrries of B razil, Russia, India, and China, are rapidly becom­ ing world powers, the first [wo with raw materials and the last [wo with low-cost p roduction. Mexico, Viernam, Thailand and others are becoming low-cost manufacruring cenrers as well. The results can be staggering. Demand for low-cost Chinese m anu­ facruring has helped the coumry grow at 9 percem per year for the past 30 years. In the process, 400 m illion Chinese have risen out of poveny. D ubai was a forgorren smuggling our­ post on the Persian Gulf umil oil dis­ coveries in the 1 970s brought riches. The emirate is now a m ajor financial cenrer and playground for the wealthy and is building the world's three tallest buildings, a second indoor ski slope, the world's largest shopping mall and amusemenr park and an underwater hotel. I have been privileged ro see some of this amazing growth first hand, parric­ ularly in the M i ddle East and Asia. Ir is characterized by huge investmems, strong confidence in the fu ture, a global ourlook and relative indiffer­ ence to the United S tates. As these economies have grown powerful and truly global in scope, the role of America has di minished. What is to be done?

A realistic assessment of the compar­ ative advamages of the United S tates in an increasingly globalized conrext brings us ro three imporram ques­ tions. First, how can the United States enhance its comparative advantages in technology,

One answer is education. The United S tates produces 70,000 engineering gradu­ ates each year. China and India rogeth­ er graduate more than one million. Not only do we need ro place higher emphasis on education - particularly in the sciences - but we also should welcome brill iam studenrs from throughout the world and invite them ro stay and innovate here.

Second, what are the characteristics ofsuc­ cessful lea.ders in today 's world? There


virtually timeless "basics" ro leader­ ship, including such traits as inregrity and character, passion and commit­ mem, acceptance of responsibility, experience and good judgmenr, and the ability ro see the whole, envision the possible, and engage others. Additional skills for leaders in the evolving global business and political environment include: a combination of competence and confidence in dif­ ferem and unfamiliar environmenrs; Global credibility:

a combi­ nation of respect for human differ­ ences and a desire to understand them, plus genuine belief that differ­ ences combine for a richer world.

Preference for diversity:

Technical savvy:


a combination of skills that fully utilize the roo Is of global commerce and communica­ tion; and a combination of minimal preconceptions, inruition, deferred judgmenr, humor and agility. Third, how can we at Pacific Lutheran

Universil)! educate ou,. students to become SHccessful leaders ? We

must help stu­ denrs acquire specific skills (e.g., criti­ cal thinking, quamitative analysis, oral and written communication - the hean of our curriculum and course work). We must give srudenrs oppor­ tunities ro stretch their own self-con­ cept (e.g., study abroad, inrernships). We must provide studenrs opportuni­ ties ro accept responsibilities and lead (e.g., studem clubs performing service projects and enrering team-based regional and national competitions). And we must equip studems with skills ro engage in lifelong learning. The PLU experience yields huge rewards for studenrs and those who care about their success. I urge all PLU alu mni and friends to supporr us i n these efforts. T h e future leaders hip o f t h e world depends on i r . ffil Jim Brock is dean of the School ofBusiness at Pacific Lutheran University.

PLU receives a 300 year-old Torah

The Torah is the most holy of sacred writings in Judaism. It's the first of three sections of the Hebrew Bible and

hilanrhropist Cindy Boyce has donated to PLU a Torah with a pedigree that dates back to the 1 700s. Boyce's family has made donat足 ing religious artifacts to universities one of their philanrhropic endeavors. The 300 year-old sctoll, transcribed in Motocco, has been decommissioned for a number of years. The manuscript is made of about 100 feet of tanned leather and each book is transcribed i n Hebrew. Every detail was transcribed with painstaking detail by a specially trained scribe working under very strict rules.

P rofessor S a m u e l To rve n d '73 i n spects the Torah given to PLU by p h i l a nthropist Cindy Boyc e .


consists of five books: G enesis, Exodus, Levi ticus, Numbers and Deutetonomy. The Torah Boyce donated to PLU is one of the oldest she has ever seen. Its value has been appraised at more than $ 1 00,000. After Boyce has collected the religious items, she searches for an ll1stitution that has the ability, knowledge and facilities to truly appreciate them. She discovered PLU was one of those places because her daughter has several friends who attend school here. "This is a wonderful gift you give us," said Samuel Torvend '73, associate pro足 fessor of religion and chair of the reli足 gion departmenr, upon recei pt of the To rah.

n any given weekday afternoon you will find James Crosetto and Lexie Miller engrossed in athletic endeavors. Look for Crosetto on the tennis courts hitting reaction volleys or work­ ing up a sweat while playing a chal­ lenge match against a men's tennis teammate. Nearby, Lexie M iller puts in countless practice laps, aimed at preparing her for the track and field season and her specialty, the 3000meter steeplechase. For Crosetto and M iller, participat­ ing in intercollegiate athletics at PLU means living our a passion, and it is as i mportant a part of their lives as their academic pursuits. And make no mis­ take, academics is a major part of both of their lives. Crosetto and Miller are two of approximately 32 peer tutors who work for the Academic Assistance Center. Additionally, they are two of five cur­ rent tutors who also participate in intercollegiate athletics. (The others are Dan Hibbard, track and field, who tutors in biology; Kat Jenkins, women's crew, who tutors in math and physics; and Luke Weinbrecht, track and field, who tutors in geoscience.) For 35 years PLU's peer tutoring pto­ gram has aimed to "provide academic support for students at all academic 20 'PLU SCENE SPRING 2009 > ATTAWAY LUfES

levels, from those striving for an 'A,' :J those hoping to get through a class with a passing mark, and everywhere in between," says director Leslie Foley '88. All tutors must first be approved by the department in which they tutor, and then they are trained by Foley in a one-credit course that meets College Reading and Learning Association guidelines. For Croserto and Miller, both CRLA certified, training to become a tutor has similarities to train­ ing for athletic success. MEN'S TENNIS

JAMES CROSETTO A smile comes easily to the face of James Crosetto, a senior from Eatonville, Wash., who is majoring in computer science and computer engi­ neering. The tall, blond-headed Crosetto is justifiably proud of the classroom acu men that has led to a 3.88 grade point average. His natural propensity for all-things computer is buoyed by a strong work ethic. "I really enjoy it, so that probably helps," Crosetto said. " But I like to think that I put in a lot of hard work." He's just as proud, however, of his success on the tennis court as a four­ year varsity performer for the men's tennis team. That success, he would admit, is due more to hard work and

passion than to natural athletic ability. In his first three years on the tennis team, James has been on the cusp of establishing his place among the top six singles players. He has compiled a career 14-3 singles record at PLU, including an 8-2 record in 2007. He is 9-9 in doubles play. His senior season figures to be much like the first three intermittent appearances in singles and doubles play depending on the compe­ tition. After all, it's tough work break­ ing into the top six of the regionally ranked team. For Crosetto, the pursuits of academ­ ic and athletic excellence are a normal part of life, and his role as a peer tutor fits into that lifestyle. Crosetto started as a peer tutor in the faa of 2007. Leslie Foley was looking for a new computer science tutor and Crosetto was recommended by the department. For the last year and a half he has tutored students taking in tro­ duction to computer science and data structures . Those students can find Crosetto in the compute r science lab five hours during the week. "It's not a huge time commitment and it makes it easier to work it in with tennis," Crosetto admits. "(Being a peer rutor) creates more pressure and takes more of my time, but it fits really well with my major," he

said. "When I'm helping people, I get to

But the con­ flicts are easily resolved. "I've never real­ ly had to decide between one or the other," he said.

totally awesome to do? Then I should go do that,'" he said. What was true in his career, was also true fo r his education. Parsons originally entered Washington State University. But as he starred to figure Out what he wanted to do after college, transferring to PLU made a lot of sense. "I liked what I saw at PLU," he recalled. "I liked the smaller envi ronment and the smaller class sizes. It fel t good to me. Plus, I thought they had a great .. .. business pro- ..


gram." Also factoring into the equa­ tion: a move to PLU would allow him to be closer to the businesses that would likely employ him. That proved to be true. Parsons would graduate PLU with a degree in finance, taking a position at Weider Nutrition, the maker of sports drinks and nutrition bars. Health and fi tness was one of his cwo passions (the other bl'ing gaming and sofcware) worked h is way up the ladder, rising to VP of marketing and product develop­ ment. By any measure, a good gig. But after a while, it was time to follow his other passion. So he left h is POSt and looked for a job in the gami ng industry. Which raises an important question: How exactly does someone from the nutrition biz just "shift over" to a sweet gig in the gaming industry? Parsons laughed at the question. "I've always done the th ings I wanted to do. It was my passion, and it was time to follow that passion. I did.n't care what i t took or what I wo uld get paid. I p roba­ bly would have taken a job for free." Parson paused. "Wh ich, come to th ink of it, at first, I was getting paid pretty close to that." He landed at M icrosoft, working as a product manager on Monster Truck Madness II. Then came the more famous titles, and then the opportunity to work on the then-secret XBox. When Parsons was asked to work on Mi crosoft's acqu isition of Bungi e Studios - creator of the Halo series his career offi cially could be considered headed for the stratosphere. . . ........ ...

-�. ." '" -,. .... � � �

We all know how Halo worked out. As studio manager of Bungie Studios, he presided over the creation of the mOSt critically acclaimed and commercially successful video game series of all time, generating sales in excess of $ 1 billion. And it wasn't just video games - the franchise included best-selling novels, soundtracks and so on. Then, after completing pre-p roduc­ tion of Halo 3 and developing a part­ nership between Microsoft and Peter Jackson, the Academy Award-winning director of the Lord o f the Rings films, Parsons did what many would consider unthinkable. He quit. For Parsons, this decision goes back to the same question he has always asked of him­ self: What would be totally awesome to do) Parsons likes to work with college-age students and help them set priori ties as they consider their future. He will often come to PLU and other places to dis­ cuss how his choices have shaped his career. Time and again, he asks those to whom he is speaking to ask themselves that same fu ndamental question. "I will talk to students who have p lanned-out a certain career track they will say, 'I want to be at so-and-so position in two years, and VP in five.' That focus is," said Parsons. "But I always ask them, 'Is that the thing you care about) Is that what would be total­ ly aweso me to do?'" At this stage of his life, starting his own business is what wo uld be totally awesome. He started Fyreball, which became Meteor Technologies, a plat­ fo rm that allows e-marketers to meas­ ure and track Web-based creative cam­ paigns through the single-most power­ ful (and least understood) marketing tool there is: word of mout h. Nobody h as been able to do it yet. Parsons thinks he is onto something and companies like Microsoft, Disney, Sony, AT&T Wireless, some of his fi rst clients, seem to think so too. One of Parsons first proof-of-concepts was the "Where the Hell is Matt?" video, which ...... ..-. ..-..

he says enabled Meteor Technologies to track how and why bad-dancing Matt's video was passed through cyberspace. It remains to be seen how Parsons' latest ve nture wiLl re-shape how compa­ nies advertise on the Web. Time wiLl tell. One thing he does know, even with the hardships and the sleepless nights that come with creating a Web start-up, the process has been exactly what he hoped i t wo uld be: Awesome.

Mayo Clinic physician lives life in balance LU ' s leaders often say the univer­ sity creates well-rounded individ­ uals. Clayton Cowl ' 88 is a prime example. A chemistry major and communica­ tion minor at PLU, Cowl now works at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Cowl, who became a physician and scien tific researcher after leaving PLU, is working on testing oxygen masks i nstalled in the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, holds joint appointments in the clini c ' s divi sions of preventive, occupational and aerospace medicine, and pul­ monary and critical care medicine.

Lute ath l eti c fa c i l iti es : I O ef n i n g a vi s i o n , p l a n n i n g for th e futu re ' hat does it take to mount a s uccessful athletic program these days? A few things immediately come to mind: talented and h ighly motivated Stu­ dent athletes; experienced, dedicated and supportive coaches and staff; and high­ quality equipment. According to Laurie Turner, director of athletics, PLU is doing all of these things very we ll. "\Ve have had remarkable success over the years in our athletic program," she said. "When yo u compare our program to that of other schools in the Northwest Conference and region, we stand out in JUSt those ways in which we define suc­ cess at PLU. " We are helping individuals develop intellectually, spiri tually, emotionally and physically. We are giving them the skills for a lifetime of leadersh ip, person­ al success and service to others. " PLU has also done a remarkable job in defining a vision and in p lanning for the future of athletic facilities to keep our programs among the top tier," she said. It's part of a pattern at PLU. Over the past is years, the campuswide, long-range facilities master plan has led to revitalization and renewal across campus. Now the focus of attention includes enhancements in recreation and athletic faci Ii ties. The un ivel-s ity's commitment to main­ taini ng fi rst-rate space on lower campus can be fo und in the Athletic, Recreation and Physical Education Master Plan. It calls for a b road menu of i mp rovements that will meet the faci lities needs for recreation, training and competition in every SpOrt. "The projects will be phased in over time," Turner said. The first major component is the cre­ ation of twO outdoor all-weather lighted synthetic fields for practice, competition and recreation. One of the fields will be designed to accommodate the addition of spectator seating, giving the camp us a multipur­ pose stadium sometime in the future.

Athletic e n h a n c ements like an a l l -weather field will b e n efit t h e wome n's s o c c e r team, a s well as other teams a n d the gen eral stu d e nt body.

The first major component is the creation oftt{)O outdoor all-weather lighted synthetic fields for practice) competition and recreationThe construction of new indoor sp ace for practice, instruction and recreation is also planned for phase one. It wil l probably include an indoor track as well as a floor surface capable of handling indoor tennis, basketball and volleyball . Some i mprovements t o O lson h ave been accomplished. A res urfaced bas­ ketball court, some new bleachers, an imp roved training room and locker room enhancements were all completed last summer with donor suppo rt. Phase twO of the master plan will guide many other upgrades incl uding the swi mming pool, fitness center, base­ ball and softball fields, outdoor track

and additional work on Olson. All o f the athletic facility enhance­ ments will be funded by donor conn-i­ butions. "Our priorities are flexible," Turner said. "We intend to enhance the athletic and recreational experience across all collegiate and recreational programs. "If a dono r is ready to step up righ t now to m ake a difference for any one of our programs, we have components in the long-range plan that will make that gi ft work for the donor, fo r the team and fo r the overall progress of our ath­ letic facility enhancements, There are many ways to make ,m invest­

ment in athletic programs at PLU. Contributions can be made outright or through planned giving vehicles, sttch as a bequest provision, trust, gift annuity or gift of life insurance.

Hiscory of Childhood and Youth in Norrkbp ing, Sweden. Soon thereafter, I received a Fulbright Disti nguished Lectureship co teach at Yonsei Un iversity in Seoul, South Korea, in the 2008 spring semester. And then this past September, I was again hon­ ored co be invited to present a paper at the Ninth Australian Adop tion Conference in Sydney. My new international perspective deeply influenced my research. At con­ ferences in E ngland, Sweden and Australia, I was at fi rst stunned and then excited to discover li tcrally hun­ dreds of l i ke-mi nded people - scholars, professionals, and governmcnt officials - all tal king about adoption issues. To understand the significance of this seemingly m undanc fact, one must realize that the histOry of adoption in the United Statcs is a ncw discipl i ne and that only a handful of scholars, scatccred ovcr several d isciplines, acrively practice the craft. Conferences dcdicatcd to the histOry of adoption in the U.S. are practically unknown, and [here are no Internet discussion lists devoted [0 adoption his tory. International conferences provided me, for the first time in 20 years of research on adoption, with a community of l ike- minded scholars and pro fession­ als. Now I have begun to e-mail them regularly, share ideas and findings, and col laborate on research and wri ting projects. After French scholar Ivan Jablonka and I met in Swede n, we began e-mailing abouc che idea of col­ laborating on a comparative h istOry of early 20th-cen t u ry adoption insritu ­ cions. S i milarly, several Australian and Canadian researchers and I are plan­ n i ng to presenc papers on various internacional aspects of adoption at the forrhcoming Fifth Biennial Conference on the H istory o f C hildhood and Youth in Berkeley, Calif., lacer in 2009. Neither these col­ laborations nor the comparative nature of the questions wc are asking together would have been possible without "going global." A comparative approach to the hisro­ ry of adoption has also led [0 my revis­ ing some of the fundamental research



The p a rt i c i pation of Korean students forced C a rp to fe-exa m i n e h i s n ot i o n s a b o u t the Western family.

q uestions swi rling about adoption reform in the United States 111 partic­ ular, the highly contentious issue of whether allowing adopted adults access to their adoption records, which are sealed in most states, would have a negative effect on birth mothers who had been promised secrecy by social workers at the time they had relin­ qu,is hed their babies. My earlier research was ambivalent on this issue, therc not being sufficient evidence to su pport a conclusion, one way or another. J3u t thc papcr I delivcred in Sydney, bascd on new research in G reat Britain and Australia as well as the United States, addressed this issue. My paper was the fU'st one to tcst empirically how safe birth parents and adopted adults were in countries that have opened their adoption records, usually bi rth registration records, using concact preference forms and contact vewes. The results of this investigation revealed that a vast gap exists between the fear by birth parents and adopted adults that their privacy will be invaded and thcir fam i ly dis­ rupted and the reality that few or no o ffenses are commi tted. I concluded that opening adoption records with contact prefercnce forms or contact vetoes provided a balanced adoption disclosurc system and was a viable alternative to rhe sealed adoption poli­ cies currently used in the vast majori ty of American states and Canadian provinces. The paper has su bsequen tly been published in Adoption Quarterly (offprint sent upon request). -

Global experience has simi larly altered my teaching perspective. I taught two courses to undergraduates at Yonsei, one of which was "Fami lies and Childhood in American Hisrory, 1 607 to the Presen t." The active par­ ticipation of the students taught me that my ethnocentric notions about the Western family needed ro be seri­ ously qual i fied, as I learned abo ut the Korean extended family kinship sys­ tem, the family naming register (recen tly abol ished), the importance of Confucian ism, and the various levels of respect i mbedded in the Korean language. I hope ro teach th is coursc at PLU, and when I do, to incorpo rate a comparative international perspec­ tive. I plan ro continue my research, pub­ lishing and teaching in an interna­ tional context. Cu rrently, I am writing a biography ofJean Paton, a middle­ aged, twice-adopted, ex-social worker who pioneered the adoption reform movement, both here and abroad. After I finish that projec t:, I plan to write a hiswry of ad o ption records in global perspective. In 2009, I am look­ ing forward to attending a business history conference in Milan, in antici­ pation of adding a comparative histo­ ry component to my American Business and Economic History course. As I look ro the future, I can be sure of one thing: having gone global, there is no going back. 1m

1\18 Going Global

When E. Wayne C a rp was hired as a l e g a l consultant by the Cana d i a n government, it fostered a n international pers p e ctive that deeply i n f l u e n c e d his research a n d led to a coveted F u l b right D i sting uished lectureship i n Seoul, Kore a .

By E. Wfaync Carp rained as an historian of the American Revolurion and blessed with an abundance of sou rces, I saw no scholarly reason to [('avel abroad, although I had wanted to see England, the mother counery fro m which America was born. My subsequent research on the history of adoption, which produced three books over the course of 20 years, focused eneirely on the United States. I had little interest in writing or teaching history in a com parative dimension. My attitude and practice changed dra­ matically, however, in 2005 when, out of the blue, the Mi nistry o f the Attorney General, Ont ario, Canada, hi red. me as a

legal consultant, in the case of Marchand v. On tario in the Ontario Superior Coun ofJustice. I was asked to research and write an affidavit on the h istory of adoption legislation, focusing on secrecy and disclosure ill On eario's adoption records, and placing Ontario's e.xperience in a wider context. In prac­ tice, this meant comparing On eario's ado ption disclosure laws with those of other English-speaking jurisdictions, i ncluding Canada, G reat B ritain, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. That experience forced me ou t of my i nsular focus on the United States and channeled my research in terests to

international adoption, and in particu­ lar, a comparative histo1')! o f ado ption records in global pers pective. Quickly, as an unintended result of my new research interest, I became a world traveler. I n J uly 2006, I was hon­ ored to be invited to England to be a keynote speaker at the Second I n ternational Conference on Adoption Research at the University o f East Anglia, Norwich. This marked my first trip abroad. The following year, I was il1vited to give a talk at the bian n ual conference of the Societ), for the

35 years of discussing imp ortant historical issues Robinson travels to Rome to perform on

Easter Sunday

olveig Robinson, associate profes­ sor of English, was one of 1 5 0 singers a n d full orchestra who performed Andrew T. Miller's camata "The Birth of Christ" at the Basilica Sama Maria Ara CopeLi - on Easter Sunday. Robinson heard abour the ensemble auditions through her regular choir, the Northwest Repertory Singers, with whom she has performed since the group's founding in 200 1 . She also studied voice with PLU's Marcia Baldwin one year before she retired. "If it hadn't been for her, I wouldn't have had the courage to audition for this per­ formance." For Robinson, the opportunity to sing in a world historic site was too great to pass up. "The music is so beautiful that I am equally excited about performing the camata," she said, "and performing at the cemer of Western Christendom on the major feast day of the liturgical year is also pretty amazing."

r the 35th year, the annual Walter C. Schnackenberg Memorial Lecture took place on the PLU campus. Sponsored by the Department of History, guest speaker Joshua Fogel discussed the topic "The

Nanjing Atrocity in Chinese Historical Memory." The Schnackenberg lecture began i n 1 974 in honor of h i s frequently expressed wish to establish a lectureship that would regularly bring distin­ guished members of the world academic commu nity to PLU to discuss signifi­ cant topics of histo rical interest. Walter C. Schnackenberg was a 1 937 graduate of PLU (then called Pacific Lutheran College) and then began a life­ time relationship with the university. He taught at the college from 1 942- 1 944, leaving to travel u ntil returning in 1 952.

t looks like a rather fat, squat water heater. But to the students and professors gathered around it - or, more accurately, the computer that transmits readouts from it - the machine is pure magic. It is called a nuclear magnetic reso足 nance spectrometer, or NMR. Today, the students from Professor N eal Yakclis' organic chemisuy lab are trying 8 PlU SCENE SUMMER 2009 > LIFE OF THE MIND

to figure out the structure of an u n known substance. Yakelis gives the students a rundown on how to order the machine to drop the sample into the depths of the NMR, and then await test results on how protons are oriented in the un known liquid. The machine works by an electronic arm plucking out a sample from a rotating tray and slowly lowering it into

a tu be, which then goes down on a col足 umn of air into the machine. There, a powerful magnet that is 200,000 times as strong as the Earth's magnetic field spins the compound at supe r-fast speeds. As the machine analyzes the sample, information starts appearing on the computer. To an untrained eye, the readouts seem like random squiggles and blobs.

chemistry majors Erin Johnson and Jessica Dortl return to the lab to await their results, which will be e-mailed to them.

Johnson said the automation o f the $700,000 machine is amazing. She's been waiting eagerly s i nce the begi nning of the year to

use the

machine. With good reason. Undergraduate students l i ke Do tt! and Johnson usually

' We do so bcc;lu<;e the south Puget Sound is so richly diverse that one does not need to travel more than a few blocks to have a cross-cultur­ al experience." Many of those cross-cultural experi­ ences happen right on campus. For i nstance, more than 230 international students study on-campus, representing 24 countries. On-campus groups also focus on international Issues, such as

the I nvisible Children Club, which looks at issues facing children in Uganda. Even The Mast, the student

Additionally, the university has devel ­ oped an International Honors Program and 36 Fulbright student scholarships have been awarded in the past decade to PLU scholars, with more than half of those in research areas. Faculty mem­ bers have also received Senior Fulbright Scholar Lecturing Awards in such coun­ tries as China, Korea, Estonia, Finland, Norway and Uganda. The S imon Award wasn't the only sig­ nificant announcement acknowledging PLU's emphasis on global education. Friends of the university met a $ 1 mil­ lion challenge grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, establish­ ing a $2 million scholarship fund that .will enable up to 70 Global Scholar Grants for low-income students, who otherwise might be unable to partici­ pate in PLU's study-away programs. The fact that PLU is able to engage in partnerships with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation underscores the uni­ versity'S leadership on global education issues, and is certainly the type of thing that NAFSA: Association of International Educators would have been looking for when conSidering u n i ­ versities for the Simon Award.

Earnings from the endowment wil l provide approximately $ 1 00,000 a year to fund up to 70 Global Scholar Grants for students who otherwise might be unable

to participate in PLU's study-away pro­ grams. Given that PLU admits more Washi ngton Achiever Scholars than any other independent university in the s tate, as well as 800 Pell Grant and 700 S tate Need Grant recipients, the Global Scholar Grants program will enable the university to further its commitment to making study-away opportunities avail­ able to all of its students. "This new endowment will provide a significant boost to many deserving PLU students for generations to come," said Sobania. "The Global Scholar Grants program and the many accom­ plish ments of these students also will continue to enhance PLU's stature as a globally focused university." [ID

hen PLU swimming head coach Jim Johnson recruited Jay Jones OUt o f M r. View H igh School in Vancouver, Wash., during the 2006-07 school year, he knew that the young man with an ordinary last name could be an extraordinary swimmer for his Lures. "In (swimming) recruiting you go by times, not like other spons such as bas­ ketball and football where it is more sub­ jective," Johnson said. "He had good times, so we knew he was good, but I did­ n't know he was this good." Indeed, what Jones accomplished dur­ ing his sophomore season has already pushed his name omo the list of all-time great male swimmers at PLU. Jones showed hines of his potential greatness during his freshman year, cap­ ping off h is season by winning the 200yard butterfly at the 2008 Nonhwest Conference Championships. Jones raced to the victory with a time of 1 :56.61, win­ ning by l .38 seconds. The victory earned PLU its first NWC men's individual event title since Mike Simmons won the 100yard breaststroke in 1 999. Earlier in the meet, he established a new school record of 1 :57.05 whiJe finishing fourth in the 200-yard individual medley. This season, Jones shattered all expecta­ tions, even h is own, when he won three individual event championships at the conference meet and also obliterated four PLU men's swimming records. Jones broke school records and gained national meet provisional qualifying times by winning the 200-yard b u tterf1y, 200-yard individual medley and 400-yard individual medley at the Northwest Conference Championships in February. Jones became the first PLU swimmer to win three events at a conference meet since Marc LeMaster took the 50-, 1 00and 200-yard freesryles at the 1 990 cham-

pionships. Jones also became the first­ ever PLU swimmer, male or female, to win an outstanding swimmer award at the conference meer. By the end of the meet, the man with the ordinary last name had done the extraordinary, setting new school records in the 100-yard burrerf1y (5 1.38), 200yard burrerf1y ( 1 :54.38), 200-yard individ­ ual medley ( 1 :55.01), and 400-yard indi­ vidual medJey (4:07.74). "Starring this season, I was planning on JUSt breaking my own record in the 200 IM," Jones said. "In the back of my mind I also wanted ro snatch the 200 f1y and 400 IM records as well, but I wasn't sure if I'd be successful in pulling it off. I sur­ prised myself with how much I accom­ plished this season. I gained more confi­ dence as the season progressed and, in the end, at conference, I felt I had a good chance." "Jay came in this year after a strong first season, and continued training in the off season," said Allison Kolp, who served as PLU's interim head coach while Johnson took a year o ff because of illness. "We were able to push Jay in practice further than we did last year and increased his distance in the pool signifi cantly. Jay knew what he needed to do this year, and he was able to swim smarter races, which comes from experience." Despite establishing those four swim­ ming records, Jones did not receive an invitation to compete in the NCAA Division III Swimming and Diving Championships held in Mi nneapolis, Minn. His provisional qualifying times in the 200-yard butterfly, 200-yard individ­ ual medley and 400-yard individual med­ ley all were more than a second slower than the cutoff for emry. The NCAA Division III national meet qualifying standards have become so fast that even the most successful swim programs in

the Northwest Conference - \Vhitworrh and Puget Sound - get few athletes into the national meer. You would have to go all the way back to Mike Simmons in 1999 to find the last time that a PLU swimmer competed at the Division III national meet. Quali�'ing standards, already stringent, will plu mmet next year because most Division III national caliber swimmers are taking advantage of the latest technology in competition equipment - fu ll-body suits. The suits have dramatically reduced times at every level. In fact, nearly every world record now on the books was set by a swimmer wearing the new suic. Jones, for his part, did not wear the new full-body suit at the conference mect - yet still set four school records. It is reason­ able to assume that unless Joncs gets one of those expensive suits, he may never compete at the national meer. For his part, Johnson thinks tbatJones has the talent and work ethic necessary, even wi thout the competitive body suit, to take the next step. "I'm confident that he'll get there the next two years, and when he gets there he'll place (in the top 1 6)." Jones, too, believes that be can qualify for the national meet in his two remain­ ing years at PLU. "If I show the same improvement next season as I did this sea­ son, tben I definitely wil l find a SpOt at nationals. But the faster my swims get, the harder it gets to drop tlme off my races. My primary foclls next season will probably be the same as rhis past season, which is just to beat my personal best times." "He's probably the most naturally gifted swimmer we have, and he has not reached his full potential," Johnson said. "lfhe stays and swims fo ur years he'll be the best swimmer we've ever bad."

-Brad TIldt!n 83

'S4. Tilden's sister, Juli Tilden 'S6, is a Lute, along with fo ur of his wife's siblings. When Tilden graduated from PLU in 1983, the country was facing a crushing recession. But then, as now, businesses were hiring people who will roll up their sleeves and do the hard work. And think creatively. And be problem solvers, he said. "Every busi ness has a shortage of this type of emp loyee," he said. H is college job at Amtrak helped him pay fo r PLU, b u t also taught him to work hard and be available to do what­ ever. In his case, that meant wash ing dishes on the train. It was because of this job, in fact, he had saved enough to pay for his pilot training. This do-whatever-needs-to-be-done attitude has helped Alaska navigate an industry that has weathered 9/ 1 1 and plummeting passenger counts, soanng fuel rates and, of course, today's reces­ sion. Tilden credits Alasb.'s success to i ts people. "I don't think you'd find a team like ours anywhere else in the industry." D espite the recession, the company is in good shape, with $ 1 b i llion cash on hand (much higher than other airlines), and the airline has snagged another JD Powers award for customer satisfaction. And as to what keeps him up at nights ? There's the competition o f the low-cost ai rlines such as Virgin and Southwest always nipping at the company's heels. "To be competitive, you really have to keep innovating, and keep changing," he said of business su rvival in the 2 1 st century. The company now has one of the most fuel efficient fleets in the industry (all 737s), was the first to sell tickets on the Internet, th e fi rst to have ch eck-in kiosks, the fi rst to allow check-ins from home. After un usual i tems, Alaska reported a net income of $4.4 million in 200S. i ts fifth consecu tive profit. The $3.5 b illion company has trip led in size d u ring the last 1 8 years. Given all the work at the office, and shuttling the one daughter still at home to and from her events at Issaquah High School, there isn't mLlch time fo r hob bies - like flying o r cycling, another activiry he enjoys. But he's never losr rhat wo nder of that yo ung boy looking up at th e planes. He'd like to ger back to flying again. "I know it sounds corny, but there's really nothing like i t," he said. -Barbara Clem",,!s

(�nytime I get to one of my big milestonesJ I realize anything is

possible. ,. Maureen Francisco '.99

Making dreams a reality, and makin g a reality show, too o

say Mauteen Francisco '99 is a go-getter would be selling her sho rt. A list of her accomplishments runs long and seems to have no end. She calls it JUSt a srart to her "Things She Wants To Do Before She D ies" list. She's always wanted to run in a marathon. Now she's run in four. She wan red to be a television rcporter. She's since worked in multiple markets. She wanted to work for a non-profit. She's currently the media dircctor fo r Child United, which seeks to reduce the effects of poverry in Third World coun­ tries through education. It's just the way she is, said Joanne Lisosky, associate professor of commu­ nicatioll, whom Francisco credits as being a guiding force fo r her when she was at PLU. The two sti l l stay in touch. "It does not surprise me that she went out and became a very powerful woman in the world," Lisosky said. "She's absolutely charming - J USt delightful to be around in every way." But a recent adventure allowed Francisco to indulge in something she's wanted to be a part of - reality TV. "I've always been fascinated with reali­ ty shows," she said. "But when yo u're a reporter there's a conflict of interesr." So she put that dream on hold fo r :l\vh ile to focus on other projects. Then she movcd on from reporting and

fo und herself a slot as a contestant on the Fox Reality Channel's Solitary 3.0. "I know I have time and there's no conflict of interest," Francisco said whcn the show aired this Spring. Thc show is a grueling combination of physical and emotional chaillenges. Contestants are isolated in a room and given different challenges to complete. "It is a diffe rent kind of television," Francisco said. "This is the only reali ty show where you are playing against yourself, because the only way you lose is if you quit." It's a true test of will, she said. Recently Francisco met her breaking point in a challenge that had contest­ ants drinking a large quantity of milk wh ich if )/ou've ever been part of a resi­ dence hall "gallon challenge," you know there's only so much milk the body can absorb before it comes back up. Although she didn't win, Francisco said the experience was very positive. S h e was able to go beyond some of her perso nal thresholds. "Anytime I get to one of my big mile­ stones, I realize anything is possible," she said. "She's a great role model for young women, I think in many ways, because it wasn't always easy fo r Maureen," Lisosky said. "She always worked at it." No longer on Solitary 3.0, Francisco has j umped into other p rojects. She's still the media dircctor fo r Child United and she's continuing to p u rsue other media ventures. Oh yeah, and shc's finishing her memoir. [§J -Chris Albert

he field of Subaltern Studies came into existence to address a per­ ceived problem with the way that existing scholarly paradigms in anthro­ pology, Latin American studies, and many other fields, had understood the "objects" of study: people in cultures other than those of the scholar. Subaltern Studies sought to engage the subaltern as an ally and participant in the academic process. The communities being studied in this way, at least partly, have a voice in describing themselves, rather than always being described as the O thers by the dominant culture.

Canniiia Pale1"m and Jackal Tanelorn Subaltern Studies has sometimes been misused by scholars, who have used it to give blanket explanations of power rela­ tions within a given society, rather than doing the careful work of examining the complexity of these relations in detail. However, it nevertheless proved useful to me and to my students when, as part of the 2008 PLU Fall Gateway Program in Oaxaca, we partnered with an organi­ zation called Witness for Peace [0 exam­ ine the effects of recent trade policies on communities of indigenous people in rural areas of Mexico. Witness for Peace argues that, while free trade may have benefited con-

Our group visited tWO communities in Southern Mexico: the region of the Mixteca Il1 Oaxaca and the communit}, of Tzajalchen in Chiapas. What we wit­ nessed in these communities were indigenous groups who have not only been marginalized from the world eco­ nomic order, but from the political and cultural structures of the nation they reside within.
