Medical school acquires a name and three clinical partners
uinnipiac’s new medical school acquired a name this past year —the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine. A major gift from Barbara and the late Edward Netter pays tribute to Edward’s first cousin, the renowned medical illustrator once dubbed the “Michelangelo of Medicine.”
On target to open in Fall 2013, the medical school is taking aim at one of the most pressing needs in the nation today—more primary care physicians. “This emphasis, combined with our existing nurse practitioner and physician assistant programs, makes Quinnipiac uniquely positioned to help solve the primary care needs of our country,” said President John L. Lahey. Construction on the medical school began in March. The Liaison Committee on Medical Education conducted a site visit in mid-July and granted preliminary accreditation in October, clearing the way for the Office of Medical School Admissions to begin recruiting the first class of 60 students. The Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences will be housed in the Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences on the North Haven Campus. The center comprises 325,000 square feet, with an atrium entrance, simulation labs, examination and patient assessment rooms, forensics and operating suites, and high-tech classrooms. More than 25 faculty members and administrators have been hired to date.
Last fall, the medical school selected St. Vincent’s Medical Center of Bridgeport, Conn., as its principal clinical partner. St. Vincent’s medical staff is working with the leadership of the School of Medicine to design the clinical components of the curriculum, and the department heads at St. Vincent’s serve as chairs of the corresponding clinical departments in the school. St. Vincent’s affiliation with Ascension Health will give medical students access to a network of hospitals where they can seek residency placements and explore job opportunities. In addition, five-year clinical partnerships were announced with two other Connecticut hospitals—MidState Medical Center in Meriden and Middlesex Hospital in Middletown. The latter also has dedicated a specific wing for Quinnipiac nursing students, enabling them to work more closely with patients and staff. The University established the innovative Center for Interprofessional Healthcare Education to ensure that medical students will have the opportunity to join other health professions students in learning to deliver patient care as members of a team. Of the thousands of public and private universities in the United States, fewer than 100 have both accredited medical and law schools, a further sign of Quinnipiac’s emergence as a major national university.

2011–12 ANNUAL REPORT
In July, the Connecticut State Board of Education granted Quinnipiac the licenses for programs in civil, mechanical, industrial and computer software engineering, leading to bachelor of science degrees and enabling the University to launch its engineering program in the School of Business. Nearly 30 students are in the inaugural class this fall. Two men who left an indelible impression on Quinnipiac have passed away. Leonard Kent, a longtime faculty member who also served as president from 1971–77, died in November 2011. Murray Lender ’50, former vice chairman of Quinnipiac’s Board of Trustees and a member for 24 years, died in March 2012. The board voted to name Lender chairman emeritus posthumously. The Lender family’s generous support of the University is unprecedented. Lender co-chaired the campaign for the Lender School of Business Center, which concluded with the opening of the building in 1993. Seven years later, a generous gift from Murray and his brother, Marvin Lender, assisted the University in amassing the most extensive collection of art from Ireland’s Great Hunger. The art is displayed in the Lender Family Special Collection Room in the Arnold Bernhard Library and, to a larger extent, in the new Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum, Músaem An Ghorta Mhóir, 3011 Whitney Ave., Hamden. In 2007, the Lender family name was placed on Lender Court in the TD Bank Sports Center. Murray received many honors,
including the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1990, and both Murray and Marvin were awarded honorary doctor of humane letters degrees at the 1997 Commencement ceremony. On the Mount Carmel Campus, extensive renovations to the Carl Hansen Student Center were completed during the spring and summer as crews worked to transform the former Alumni Hall into a “campus living room” of sorts, complete with a stone fireplace. The new space also includes dual sweeping stairwells, offices for campus media and Greek organizations and several meeting/event rooms. Joseph Rubertone ’67, associate vice president of facilities administration, retired in June after 39 years at the helm. Some 45 buildings on the University’s three campuses bear his thumbprint. He is succeeded by Salvatore Filardi, vice president for facilities and capital planning. We welcomed several prominent individuals on campus this year including Nicholas Kristof, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist and co-author of “Half the Sky.” Our Black History Month keynote program, “A Conversation about the Freedom Riders,” took place Feb. 16 and featured Bernard Lafayette, one of the Freedom Riders, and former U.S. Ambassador Andrew Young. Ed Gordon, host of BET’s “Weekly with Ed Gordon,” moderated.

n Fall 2011, the University added 48 new faculty members from prestigious institutions across the country and also introduced the Learning Paradigm with an emphasis on interactive, intentional learning and essential learning outcomes. As part of that plan, 95 freshmen majoring in English, international business and occupational therapy participated in the rollout of an integrated first-year experience designed to foster an appreciation and understanding of the value of critical self-reflection and higher levels of intellectual exploration and curiosity, among other goals. “You Say You Want a Revolution?” was the Campus Cross Talk 2011–12 theme. It included a major lecture by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, film screenings, and several teach-ins with topics from “Social Media and Revolution” to “The Economics of Revolution.” The School of Business ascended an unparalleled 19 spots in Bloomberg Businessweek’s seventh annual ranking of “The Best Undergraduate Business Schools.” Quinnipiac was ranked 72 out of 142 participating schools. David M. Darst, a managing director and chief investment strategist at Morgan Stanley, and James W. McGlothlin, chairman and CEO of The United Company, were inducted into the Business Leader Hall of Fame last November. Outstanding business alumni awards were presented to Jeanna Doherty ’94, an audit partner in the Hartford office of Ernst & Young, and Scott Pollak ’96, a managing director for capital markets and solutions at Citi. Darst and McGlothlin will teach a Lessons in Leadership course in the Spring 2013 semester along with Bill Weldon ’71, chairman of the board of Johnson & Johnson, and Robert Castrignano, a principal in the equities division at Sandler O’Neill + Partners. In March, the second annual Global Asset Management Education (G.A.M.E. II) Forum was once again a success, attracting more than 1,000 students and faculty from 118 universities in 43 countries. The three-day, New York City event was co-sponsored by NASDAQ OMX. Major players from the finance world led panel discussions and workshops. The School of Communications welcomed “journalists in residence” Scott Rosenfelt, a prominent film producer and director of films such as “Home Alone” and “Mystic Pizza,” and Paul Friedman, the former executive vice president of CBS News. 4
ABC’s senior foreign affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz received the school’s Fred Friendly First Amendment Award in June. More than 100 guests attended the luncheon in New York City to applaud Raddatz, including Diane Sawyer, anchor of ABC’s “World News”; former “World News” anchor Charles Gibson; George Stephanopoulos, co-anchor of “Good Morning America”; and Barbara Walters, creator and co-host of ABC’s “The View.” Students had the chance to interact with Ron Claiborne, “Good Morning America” weekend anchor, when he was among the speakers at a December workshop hosted by Q30 Television and the Alumni Association, and also with journalist Isabel Wilkerson, who lectured in November. John Berman, former ABC News correspondent and contributor to “Nightline,” delivered the keynote address at the School of Communications’ Media MashUp, a two-day event in April that included panel discussions with communications professionals and a career fair exclusively for communications students. The School of Education was pleased to report that in 2010–11, 91 percent of its educational leadership candidates passed the Connecticut Administrator Test on the first try, compared to an average of 84 percent at other universities. Kevin G. Basmadjian, associate professor and director of the master of arts in teaching program, was named interim dean of the School of Education for the 2012–13 academic year while a national search is conducted. The school honored 33 students in grades kindergarten through 12 from Side by Side Charter School in Norwalk, Conn., and North Haven and Hamden schools by hanging their artwork in the North Haven Campus as part of the Kaleidoscope of Creativity art exhibit. The art will be on display for a year. In June, Quinnipiac formalized a partnership with the Fair Haven School in New Haven and Side by Side Charter School. The University and the schools will share resources, giving teachers access to professional development programs on campus and Quinnipiac students training in the classroom with guidance from teachers. Members of Quinnipiac’s Future Teachers Organization helped students at Pond Hill Elementary School in Wallingford learn science, technology, engineering and math skills.
Nursing major Diana Tarello’s poetry on holistic nursing was published in a nursing journal.
The School of Health Sciences in March saw sixth-year physical therapy students Traci Underhill and Meredith Wolanin launch Quinnipiac’s first student-run health care service, VISION Rehabilitation, which stands for Volunteers in Service Impacting Our Neighborhoods. Under the supervision of Associate Professor Maureen Helgren, and with patient referrals from HAVEN Free Clinic in New Haven, PT student volunteers offer free services on the North Haven Campus to people without access to health care. In May, the American Academy of Physician Assistants honored Cynthia Booth Lord, MHS ’97, with the 2012 Outstanding Physician Assistant of the Year Award for her passionate support of PAs and their patients. For the first time, the Department of Diagnostic Imaging established a student exchange agreement with University College Dublin School of Medicine and Medical Science. Quinnipiac undergraduates Julianna Lupo, Hillary Harrington and Kirsten Gonsalves spent six weeks in the summer as members of a multidisciplinary clinical team at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin, which is affiliated with the University College Dublin, and students from that university’s radiography program completed clinical and research electives on the North Haven Campus. The School of Nursing welcomed more than 450 alumni and friends to an October celebration marking its official transition from a department to a school.
The School of Law kicked off the academic year with the Educational Disparity and Minority Youth Symposium attended by more than 800 educators and community leaders who shared ideas about how to increase educational access for all students. Featured panelists included Carlotta Walls LaNier, the youngest member of the Little Rock Nine; Edward Lewis, co-founder of Essence magazine and chairman of the successful Harlem Village Academies; and former Olympian Marion Jones. In May, the Civil Justice Clinic received the Clinical Legal Education Association Award for Excellence in a Public Interest Case/Project for its legislative advocacy work in support of the repeal of Connecticut’s death penalty in April 2012. Second-year student Alexandra Chalons-Browne and first-year student Phil Brown-Wilusz took top honors at the American Bar Association Regional Representation in Mediation Competition hosted by the Society for Dispute Resolution in February. In an effort to help women in prison, Professor Linda Meyer volunteered to teach the course QU 101, The Individual and the Community, at the York Correctional Institute in Niantic, Conn. The curriculum, which included reading “The Laramie Project” and President Barack Obama’s book, “Dreams from My Father,” gave inmates an opportunity to explore their own experiences with racism, drugs, sexual abuse, and for some, the anguish of being separated from their children.
In 2011, 97 percent of Quinnipiac nursing students passed the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. Of the graduates of the master’s in nursing program, 95 percent passed the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners exams. The school launched a Nursing Leadership Lecture series, funded by a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Careers in Nursing grant to support and attract students traditionally underrepresented in the field. Alumni nursing professionals participated in panel discussions, as did Angela McBride, a nursing scholar and author of “Growth and Development of Nurse Leaders.” In June, Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, Conn., dedicated a hospital wing to be used exclusively by Quinnipiac nursing students, who will work more closely with patients and staff nurses.

Commencement Quinnipiac awarded a total of 1,410 degrees at two undergraduate ceremonies on May 20. It was the University’s largest graduating class. Stephen A. Schwarzman, CEO and founder of the Blackstone Group, the world’s largest alternative asset manager, spoke at the morning ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Business. That afternoon, Nancy G. Brinker, former U.S. ambassador to Hungary and founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, delivered the address at the ceremony for the Schools of Communications, Health Sciences and Nursing. The previous Sunday, William E. Strickland Jr., president and CEO of Manchester Bidwell Corp., spoke at Quinnipiac’s Graduate Commencement, when 727 students received degrees. Later that day, Justice Lubbie Harper Jr. of the Connecticut Supreme Court addressed the 151 degree candidates in the School of Law.
The University welcomed about 1,800 freshmen in Fall 2012, the largest class ever. Undergraduate admissions received almost 19,000 applications, including 133 who applied for “early decision.” About 77 percent of the freshmen come from outside Connecticut, and in total, from 23 states and 19 countries. Sixty percent are women.
Students give back to the Greater Hamden community all year, but volunteerism reached its peak in April during two events. More than 1,500 students, alumni, faculty and staff members rolled up their sleeves for volunteer projects at 93 sites in the region during the third annual Big Event on April 14.
As the presidential race heated up, so did national coverage for the Quinnipiac University Poll. The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNN’s “State of the Union” with Candy Crowley and Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” were among the media outlets reporting poll results. Pennsylvania and Ohio polls on the campaign were mentioned on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” and a Florida poll released on the eve of a presidential debate there was used by CNN’s “John King, USA” and Fox News’ “Hannity.”
The more distant students are from California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Washington State; 26 percent come from New York State; 23 percent from Connecticut; 20 percent from Massachusetts; 18 percent from New Jersey, and the rest are from the remaining New England and Mid-Atlantic states. Thirty-three are international students from Saudi Arabia, Spain, Canada, Israel, the Dominican Republic, France, Australia, China, Indonesia, Sweden, Japan, Trinidad and Tobago, the UK, Greece, Thailand, Belgium, Peru and Senegal. The College of Arts and Sciences claims the largest amount of new students, at 30 percent, followed by 26 percent in the School of Health Sciences, 24 percent in the School of Business and Engineering, 13 percent in the School of Communications and 7 percent in the School of Nursing. Applications from selfidentified students of color increased by 9 percent and represent 26 percent of this year’s applicant pool and just over 17 percent of the incoming freshmen and transfer class.
More than 670 members of the University community also participated in the fifth annual Relay for Life in April, raising $72,000 for the American Cancer Society. The 2011 recipients of the annual Excellence in Teaching Award and Excellence in Service to Students Award were honored at a dinner ceremony. The awards represent Quinnipiac’s highest recognition of excellence in and outside the classroom. Recipients were: Dwayne Boucaud, associate professor of biomedical sciences; Lisa Kaplan, associate professor of biology; Kathleen Simione, associate professor of accounting; Lisa Delaney, a staff nurse in the Mount Carmel Health and Wellness Center; Jill Ferrall, assistant dean for career development in the School of Business; and Linda Sink, payroll manager, Human Resources. In June 2012, Quinnipiac was selected to receive a Connecticut Green Business Award for its green efforts on its three campuses, among them: solar panels, York Hill wind garden, reduction in water usage, recycling, Arbor Day program and the student electricity reduction challenge.
The School of Law welcomed 127 new students. The class has an average age of 25 and represents 18 U.S. states, two foreign countries and 72 undergraduate institutions. Thirteen percent self-identified as students of color.
The Office of Public Relations has worked with many faculty experts to garner national and local publicity. Among them, Susan McTiernan, associate dean for graduate programs in the School of Business, was quoted in a U.S. News & World Report article about women with MBAs closing the salary gap with their male counterparts. Communications Professor Lisa Burns was quoted extensively in both print and broadcast media across the U.S. about the power and influence first ladies have to help their husbands win political office.* Le Figaro of France quoted Rich Hanley, assistant professor of journalism, in an article on the coverage of the arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Robert Porter, associate professor of finance, was quoted in a November Forbes article about Bank of America discontinuing its plans to charge a debit card fee for retail transactions, and Law Professor Jeff Meyer commented in a January Associated Press article about East Haven police officers arrested on racial profiling charges. AM 1220 WQUN received the prestigious Community Advocate of the Year Award for 2011 from the Hamden Chamber of Commerce while StudentAdvisor.com named Quinnipiac among the best university social media networks in the United States, ranking it 49th on its list of Top 100 Social Media Colleges. The University’s National Institute for Community Health Education hosted two well-attended events this past year: a bone marrow drive and presentation by Patrice Tillman, a transplant recipient; and a lecture by Matthew Sanford, author of “Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence,” about the mind-body connection.
Relay for Life raised $72,000.

Finance The University’s endowment as of June 30, 2012, is $272 million. During 2011–12, Standard and Poor’s affirmed our A- rating, with a stable outlook. Standard and Poor’s noted that the rating is based on robust operating surpluses, growing enrollment and substantial growth in the endowment. Moody’s Investors Service did not perform an annual review of our rating this year, therefore our rating of A3, with a stable outlook, remains the same. Again this year there was no bond-related activity, and all of the University’s debt is at a fixed rate of approximately 4.79 percent. The University continues to use very conservative financial projections and, for the 83rd consecutive year, has ended its fiscal year with a balanced budget.

Philanthropy keeps Quinnipiac on course for national prominence
he philanthropic support of alumni, parents, friends, corporations and foundations was once again a major factor in the continued ascent of Quinnipiac on the national scene. Thanks to the largest gift in University history from Barbara Netter and her late husband, Edward Netter, the Quinnipiac School of Medicine bears the name of Edward’s first cousin, Frank H. Netter, MD, the noted surgeon and world’s most prolific medical illustrator. Innovations in entrepreneurship in the School of Business were fueled by a $1 million gift from trustee Carlton Highsmith and a $1 million match from Quinnipiac to establish the Carlton Highsmith Chair in Entrepreneurship. In addition, donors created 21 endowed funds, assuring a perpetual stream of support for our talented students and faculty and Quinnipiac’s high-quality academic and athletic programs. In the School of Health Sciences, physical therapy students will benefit from a Presidential Endowed Scholarship established by Barbara (Morency) Beever ’81 and husband Charles G. Beever. School of Nursing students will receive aid from a new fund established by John and Diane Gerity in honor of the Gerity family, while the School of Medicine will use the Jennifer Whiffen/Petit Family Foundation Endowed Scholarship to help recruit a member of its charter class in 2013. School of Business students will benefit from endowed scholarships established by: Richard L. English ’61, as part of his estate plan; Carol (Prerost) Orloski ’58, in memory of her husband, Thomas Orloski ’61; Charter Oak Insurance & Financial Services for students in entrepreneurship; Frank J. Kolb Jr. ’77, JD ’80, MBA ’06, for juniors with unmet financial need; Robert ’66 and Charles ’76 Diamond, in honor of their families; John and Kelley Joseph, parents of John ’15, in honor of the Joseph family; and Peter Zeidel ’66, Naugatuck Savings Bank, and Town Fair Tire for talented and deserving students in the School of Business. New endowed funds were established for excellence in accounting and women in business, as well as the Robert B. Dodds Endowed Scholarship in Engineering. Jonathan and Kara Lecker created a fund to inspire excellence in the School of Communications, and the Class of 2012 established an endowed scholarship to celebrate their commencement. Robert J. Massey Jr. and Shelley E. Massey ’88 created a fund to benefit women’s tennis, while Terrance and Jill Nagel endowed a fund for women’s golf in honor of their daughter, Amanda ’12. The School of Law Tax Faculty 18
Scholarship was established to benefit a third- or fourth-year law student pursuing a concentration in tax. The University’s faculty continues its tradition of teaching, research and service excellence. The Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine received the following awards: $100,000 from The Hearst Foundations to establish the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship Fund for students seeking careers as primary care physicians; $58,800 from Purdue Pharma for faculty and curriculum development; and $25,000 from the Maximilian E. and Marion O. Hoffman Foundation to develop pipeline programs including mini-medical camps for students in grades 7–12. The College of Arts and Sciences benefited from a $23,637 National Institutes of Health diversity grant as part of a previously awarded NIH grant to professor Lise Thomas. The School of Nursing received a $50,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson New Careers in Nursing program for five $10,000 scholarships to increase the diversity of students in the Accelerated Bachelor of Arts in Nursing program and a $35,582 grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration for graduate nurse training. Three grants from the following benefited the School of Business: Target, for the Target Leadership Symposium; Travelers, for student scholarships; and Bloomberg, for the integration of Bloomberg financial materials into business courses. Bristol Myers-Squibb generously continued support for the BMS Center for Science Teaching and Learning to advance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education. The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven provided a grant to Harry Pylypiw, chemistry professor, to assist undergraduate student researchers in their study of the Quinnipiac River. The foundation also awarded a grant to law professor Marilyn Ford for a symposium on educational disparity and minority youth. With the support of our benefactors, Quinnipiac continues to achieve excellence at all levels of the University. We express our sincere gratitude to all donors and volunteers who invest their time and resources to keep Quinnipiac rising.
