Bryony Bouyer ’86 A Transformative Career

INSIDE: Annual Report UMass Dartmouth Foundation


J e a n F . M a c C o r m ac k Dear Friends,


s you read this, we will have completed another academic year and awarded more than 1,800 undergraduate and graduate diplomas to a diverse group of students—by ethnicity, age, economic class, and geography— who will now set forth to shape the landscape of our communities. Among them are nurses, engineers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, public servants, scientists and the first graduates of the UMass School of Law. The question now— what will they all do with the gift of higher education? In this issue, we can see a glimpse of their future. In Bryony Bouyer ’86, the talented Hasbro executive featured in our cover story, we see up close the transformative impact of a UMass Dartmouth education on an individual and that individual’s impact on one of the most popular brands in the world. And you will meet Sheri McCoy ’80, who has risen up the leadership ranks at one of the world’s leading life science companies, and credits her UMass Dartmouth education with preparing her to lead. “Is scientific literacy at risk of extinction?” examines how our professors are addressing scientific illiteracy in this country, starting with their own students and reaching out to the community. The goal: a citizenry that confronts challenges such as climate change, renewable energy, and offshore oil production with strategies based on knowledge rather than political or ideological whim. In our Around the Campanile section, you will read about our new Living Classroom, carved into our campus woodlands, and providing our students with an inspiring location to consume fresh air and ideas; a group of students who rolled the world’s largest snowball, a lesson in perseverance and engineering that will serve them well; and progress on our bio-manufacturing center, which will create learning opportunities for current students and jobs for graduates. Our spring issue also includes our Annual Report on private giving. I am proud and heartened to say that we are seeing an increase in philanthropy, which is so important to our mission to keep high quality education accessible for those serious about learning and contributing our community. I hope you enjoy reading this issue of UMass Dartmouth, also available in multi-media format at Please share these stories with others so that they can understand the value of our University to individuals and to society.

The Living Classroom comes alive Come outside into the classroom


he UMass Dartmouth Sustainability Initiative recently opened trails and paths and woodland areas on campus as part of “The Living Classroom.” A bridge between the University’s traditional education resources, the natural environment, and the larger community, the “The Living Classroom” will allow students and faculty to explore forest, agriculture and energy projects. As part of the initiative, students recently cleared walkways and trails on campus which will allow for nature walks and forest exploration as well as visits to an old farmstead and dam. In an effort to better connect the main campus with the woodlands and forests, students have designed signage and maps and catalogued plant and animal life. UMass

New s of N ote New UMass president to build on excellence Towson University President Robert L. Caret, recently named president of the fivecampus University system, plans to build on UMass strengths when he succeeds retiring UMass President Jack M. Wilson. “It is an honor to have been asked to lead this world-class and worldrenowned University system,” Dr. Caret said following his selection by the UMass Board of Trustees. “The University of Massachusetts is one of the nation’s premiere public research universities and provides a beacon of hope and opportunity for so many. I look forward to building upon its tradition of excellence in academics, research and public service.” “Dr. Caret is a distinguished and dynamic leader who will advance the mission of the University across the Commonwealth, building on the great work of President Wilson,” Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack said. “I look forward to working with him as we build higher education opportunities for our students and strengthen the economic and social fabric of our communities.“

Marine science dean named Dr. Steven Lohrenz, who served on a scientific team that responded to the Deep-water Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, has been named the new Dean of the School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST). Dr. Lohrenz is a full professor and leads a very active Department of Marine Science at the University of Southern Mississippi (USM). “Dr. Lohrenz’s experience as a faculty member and researcher since 1987 has prepared him exceptionally well for his leadership roles at USM and nationally,“ said Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack. “We are very impressed with his ideas, his common sense leadership approach and creative energy.“ “I look forward to working with the talented and accomplished faculty and excellent staff and students“ Dr. Lohrenz said. “SMAST already has a strong reputation and solid record of accomplishment, and a bright future as a premier research and academic center of marine science.”

Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack welcomed incoming president Dr. Robert L. Caret on his first visit to the UMass Dartmouth campus in May. Dr. Caret explained his vision for the University to a receptive audience of faculty, staff, and students.

First-in-the-nation bio-manufacturing center Continuing to put the region on the map, the University recently announced plans to build a first-in-the-nation bio-manufacturing facility. “We are excited to get this project moving forward,“ said Chancellor Jean MacCormack, who was joined by Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Gregory Bialecki and local officials recently to announce the exciting plans. “This center will inspire our students and faculty to learn and discover, and it will create jobs that will keep our students in the region when they graduate.“ The $23 million, 22,000-square-foot UMass Dartmouth Bio-Manufacturing Center, which will house testing laboratories and education spaces, is designed to accelerate the development of the life science industry in the region, creating learning opportunities for UMass Dartmouth students and job opportunities for graduates. The facility will be located off Route 24 in Fall River. Architectural rendering of proposed bio-manufacturing building

New spin on energy plan: wind turbine

Students roll out the world’s largest snowball Smashing the record for the world’s most gigantic snowball, a team of UMass Dartmouth students took advantage of a snowy winter to roll an oversized, whoppingly large, crystal ball. The big and bulky snowball measured 7'4" high, 6'1" wide, and had a record-breaking circumference of 23'2". The frozen creation broke the Guinness World Record. The snowball making was chronicled on video and through photographs to authenticate the effort. The record-blasting team included Wes Fowlks, Michael Parisi, Brian Hassett, Greg Dorman, Jimmy Tice, Mark McCulley, Kevin Donovan, Wes Meserve, Ben DeLuca and Andy Wu.

Pushing to modernize campus energy resources, UMass Dartmouth will move ahead with plans to build a 600-kilowatt wind turbine about half way between the bell tower and Cedar Dell Pond. Annually, the turbine will produce the same amount of energy as burning approximately 39 tons of coal and eliminate the emission of 1,161 pounds of sulfur dioxide and 489 pounds of nitrous oxide. “Students, whose futures will be shaped by the actions we take today, are teaching us that learning, working and living green are not just the right Continued page 6

Tyler Buck is on track for his law degree Tyler Buck ’09 returned home to San Diego, California after graduation to look for work. He coached track, worked at a Subway, and then got a job at as a bankruptcy paralegal. That’s when he first thought about law school. He applied to and was accepted at UMass School of Law. When his financial aid arrived, Buck realized he could afford to go back to his alma mater, but as a law student with an added bonus. When Buck transferred to UMass Dartmouth after his freshman year at Point Loma (CA) Nazarene University, he had run one year of outdoor track. The school did not have indoor track, which meant after three years with the Corsairs, Buck still had a year of eligibility remaining in that sport. A former Little East Conference indoor champion at 600 meters as an undergraduate senior, Buck contacted head track coach Steve Gardiner about returning for one last season. After finishing the Fall semester at the law school, Buck returned to the track team as the first law school studentathlete. In his first competition in more than a year in a half, Buck ran a 1:58.89 in the 600 meters at Boston University, the sixth best time in Corsair history. His track career may be over but his law education is right on schedule. UMass

University faculty continued to break ground with their research and creative activity this winter and spring: Graduate student David Falta (Physics), along with Professors Robert Fisher (Physics) and Gaurav Khanna (Physics), recently received notice that their research showing how exploding stars bend space and time will be published in the journal of Physical Review Letters. A summary of the article explains: “The explosion of a white dwarf star releases a tremendous amount of energy over the span of a few seconds, comparable to the entire energy that will be output by our sun over its entire lifetime....The researchers demonstrated for the first time that these exploding white dwarf stars can generate a ripple in space and time strong enough to be detected by future spaceborne instruments. If detected, these waves in space and time may yield insights into the mysterious very first seconds of the supernova — into the very heart of the explosion itself— shielded from us in ordinary visible light.”

Professors Steven White (Management and Marketing), Angappa Gunasekaran (Decision and Information Sciences), Timothy Shea (Decision and Information Sciences), and Godwin Ariguzo (Management and Marketing) have been studying the digital divide. They found that the United States is being outperformed in communication technology by 18 other countries. Professor White said he expects the digital divide to shrink, and the recent social networkdriven uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia illustrate the trend. “Wireless access is the growth area, and this allows poorer countries and their citizens to engage on a national and global level,” he said.

Dr. Tracie Ferreira (Biology) received a $201,318, multi-year grant from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research for the Ferreira laboratory to map the location of a gene that could be a key component in craniofacial development in vertebrates, including humans. As intriguing as the scientific possibilities are, Ferreira said the grant means so much more to her laboratory. “Most (of my students) are children of immigrants, primarily from Portugal, and this grant allows them to get handson experience, learn new laboratory techniques, and ultimately embark on productive careers in science. It’s a winwin situation for everyone,” said Ferreira.

Professor Anthony Fisher (Fine Arts) received rave reviews for his recent exhibit at Galerie Mourlot in New York City.

Is scientific literacy at risk of Professors agree that creating a scientifically literate citizenry is key to the nation’s economic and social well-being.

By Natalie White Biology Professor Guillermo Paz-y-Miño C. points to the tented placard placed on the edge of his desk: Discussion Starter: Did you know that the US ranks 33rd in a list of 34 other countries where acceptance of evolution has been polled? Just 40% of Americans believe in evolution. Dr. Paz-y-Miño C. believes the data is a symptom of a nation lacking in scientific literacy and in danger of losing its innovation edge. The good news is that UMass Dartmouth students, thanks to a strategic approach by faculty like Paz-y-Miño C., are out-performing their peers on this measure.

The acceptance of evolution Dr. Guillermo Paz-y-Miño C., who has been studying attitudes toward evolution for several years, became particularly interested in the acceptance of evolution after the 2005 Kitzmiler v.s. Dover trial, a challenge brought in the United States court against a school system that required intelligent design be presented as an alternative to evolution. The judge ruled against the school board, saying that intelligent design was essentially creationism in disguise and violated the constitutional separation between church and state. But the debate goes on, and evolution remains under fire. “It became evident that the court case would not be an isolated event, neither a resolved one,” said Dr. Paz-y-Miño C. “Creationism was back, with a new façade, and today we see the sequels of it in the numerous court litigations being addressed in the country.” He noticed that little attention had been paid to attitudes toward evolution among college students and their professors, which spurred him to more deeply explore these areas of research. He conducted his first campus survey in 2009 and later expanded the studies to 35 New England Colleges and universities, collaborating with Dr. Avelina Espinosa, a professor at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. The study was recently published online in “Evolution, Education and Outreach.”

rational decisions and to support science education and development is key to the economic and social well-being of the nation, UMass Dartmouth professors agree. “We seem to have developed a great distrust in science among the public precisely at a time when there are so many issues that need to be analyzed in a rational, scientific way,” said Dr. Hirshfeld. “We need science to provide us information to deal with everything from the environment to terrorism.” Without the support of a knowledgeable citizenry, support for science education has eroded over time, UMass Dartmouth scientists said. “This is what is happening: We are in danger of becoming two cultures —the scientists and the non-scientists,” said Dr. Farrington, also Scientist Emeritus at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where he served as dean for 15 years and was responsible for education activities. Science-related fields enjoyed a heyday after the Russians launched the space satellite Sputnik and the United States immersed itself in the Space Race, ushering in new technological and scientific developments. But since then the support for science and related research has dwindled. The reasons behind the science knowledge drop are complex, and observers point to everything from politics and religion to poverty and poor training of teachers. But the result has been a deep degradation of both the understanding of science as well as respect for science. The United States, once a scientific and technological leader, now lags behind other countries in science research, science knowledge and technological innovations. “What we see now is the United States losing its edge. If we want the nation to be cutting edge, then that nation must value science and realize that science is intrinsically important and practically important for progress,” Dr. Paz-y-Miño C. said. If the causes of scientific illiteracy are complicated, so too are

the solutions, scientists throughout the nation agree, involving formal and informal education of legislators and society leaders, teachers and students from preschool through post-graduate and the general citizenry. “We are losing ground in matters of accepting evolution and valuing science, and it is critical that we change this, or we are heading intellectually into revisiting the Dark Ages,” Dr. Paz-y-Miño C. said. He and others worry that “science stoppers”— creationism and intelligent design— are creeping into science education replacing science with pseudo-science. Dr. Farrington, who can often be found giving public talks and leading discussions on ocean concerns related to PCB contamination, sustainability, ocean climate, said the country must address scientific illiteracy “K-through gray.” “We can’t just leave a whole generation behind,” Dr. Farrington said. Last summer, he was a key instructor for the UMass Dartmouth-sponsored Sustainability Summer Camp for Adults —How to Improve and Maintain Personal and Planetary Well-Being. Participants spent the day exploring topics of sustainability, climate change and the potential impacts locally for SouthCoast fisheries and the economy. Dr. Farrington has also been deeply involved in the downtown New Bedford Ocean Explorium, a center for ocean science public education supported by UMass Dartmouth with student and faculty engagement. A past chair of the Explorium’s Board of Trustees, Dr. Farrington is a current board member and is an active participant in educational events, as are several other UMass Dartmouth Professors and graduate students from SMAST and from other departments. “By bringing ocean science and technology to the fore, the Ocean Explorium provides an exciting venue for students and the general public to be connected to science and technology

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Foundation 2010 Annual Report

u n i v e r s i t y o f m a s s ac h u s e t t s da rt m o u t h

Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends, It gives me great pleasure to present the Annual Report of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Foundation. This account includes the names of the many individuals, corporations & foundations, and organizations that contribute to the enrichment of the student and faculty experience at UMass Dartmouth. UMass Dartmouth experienced the most successful year of fundraising in its history by raising more than $16.8 million in cash, pledges and in-kind contributions. This success was highlighted by the transfer of assets and property by Southern New England School of Law that allowed the creation of the University of Massachusetts School of Law–Dartmouth. Moving forward, we must continue to grow this remarkable university. We must ensure that all qualified students who wish to obtain a UMass Dartmouth degree can afford to attend, and that their experience will answer questions, spark curiosity, and nurture a competitive yet conscientious spirit as they enter the workforce. It is a community effort to make this happen, and we must rely on the generosity of our alumni, parents and friends to allow us to achieve our goals. On behalf of Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, thank you again for investing in the future of our students and allowing us to transform lives through education. Your support makes a world of difference. Sincerely, Michael Eatough ’09 MA Assistant Chancellor of Advancement Executive Director, UMass Dartmouth Foundation

Statement of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action UMass Dartmouth wholeheartedly supports and encourages the development of action programs designed to promote the employment and advancement of women, Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, persons with disabilities, and Vietnam-era veterans as a means of assuring compliance with the provisions of campus Affirmative Action plans. The University firmly supports the concept of equal opportunity without regard to an individual’s race, color, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or veteran status as it applies to his/her employment, admission to and participation in the University’s programs and activities, provision of services, and selection of vendors who provide services or products to

the University. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policies: Assistant Chancellor for Equal Opportunity, Diversity and Outreach Foster Administration Building Room 305, UMass Dartmouth 285 Old Westport Road,Dartmouth, MA 02747 508.910.6405 Inquiries concerning the application of nondiscrimination policies may also be referred to the Regional Director, Office for Civil Rights, US Department of Education J.W.

Cash Many of the gifts received by the UMass Dartmouth Foundation are in the form of cash— usually by check. Increasingly, some alumni and friends have chosen to make their gifts to the Annual Fund using a major credit card. This allows the donor to take advantage of any benefits awarded by the credit card company such as frequent flyer miles, bonus points, etc. Both types of gifts are simple to make and are immediately available for use by the university. Securities Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds offer distinct advantages to the donor while benefiting the UMass Dartmouth Foundation. In the case of such gifts, the donor can earn a charitable income tax deduction and eliminate all or a large portion of the capital gains tax that the donor would otherwise be required to pay if the securities were sold. Gifts-in-Kind These donations to the UMass Dartmouth Foundation are not direct, monetary contributions; they may consist of real estate and other assets including antiques, paintings, rare books, and equipment. Gifts-in-kind may offer particular tax advantages, depending upon the circumstances of the donor. We suggest that the donor consult with professional counsel for advice on such gifts. Honor or Memorial Gifts Family or friends can make these gifts to benefit UMass Dartmouth and honor campus community members or loved ones. To make a donation contact the Advancement Office at 508.999.8200 or give online at
