The Michael Parker File • Native of Bradford, England. • Earned a bachelor of science from Madeley College in Staffordshire, England in 1968 and a masters of education degree from North Carolina in 1971. • Served as head coach at Lock Haven from 1976-1983 where he compiled a record of 112-27-7 (.789). • Led Lock Haven to Division III National Championships in 1977 and 1978, then to a Division II National Championship in 1980.

Success has followed Michael Parker throughout his collegiate coaching career. One of the winningest coaches in collegiate soccer history, Parker enters his 30th season as a head coach having won six national titles, rolling up 435 wins and 18 NCAA Tournament appearances, and never having endured a losing record in 29 seasons as a head coach. To put Parker’s success into perspective, only 10 coaches in collegiate soccer history (all divisions) have ever won more games. Parker is one of 18 coaches in collegiate soccer history to ever win 400 games (only eight of those ever coached in Division I). In addition, Parker ranks first among active Division I coaches in victories and is also fourth in winning percentage at .736. That percentage ranks 16th all-time in Division I history. For all of his accolades at UNCG, Parker is to be inducted into the UNCG Athletics Hall of Fame this Fall, making him the first male coach to be inducted while still active. Entering his 30th season overall and his 22nd at UNCG, Parker has a career record of 435-149-23. In his 21 seasons at UNCG, Parker has amassed a record of 323-121-16, which computes to a .720 winning percentage. Parker’s six national titles –– five in Division III and one in Division II –– rank him first among active men’s collegiate coaches. He is second all-time to the late Bob Guelker, who won seven championships in 29 years. In 1993, Parker became the first men’s soccer coach in NCAA history to lead a team to the NCAA Tournament in all three divisions. Last year, Parker coached in his 600th collegiate match when UNCG hosted High Point on October 27. At that time, UNCG was also ranked No. 1 in the nation for the first time since its move to NCAA Division I in 1991 and in the midst of 17-match unbeaten string to open the season. Proof yet again that the ‘ol coach hadn’t lost his magic touch. For his efforts, he earned NSCAA South Region Coach of the Year and SoCon Coach of the Year. Parker came to UNCG in 1984 with the difficult task of continuing the success of a club which had won back-to-back national titles in 1982 and 1983 under the guidance of UNCG Hall of Fame member Mike Berticelli. But the Spartans won the Division III national crown in 1985, Parker’s second year at UNCG, which earned him Division III National Coach of the Year from the NSCAA and Dixie Conference Coach of the Year. He followed that by directing the team to national titles in 1986 and 1987, becoming the first coach to win three straight NCAA men’s soccer national championships. In their gradual climb to Division I status, the Spartans were the NCAA Division II national runners-up in 1989 and Parker was named Division II National Coach of the Year by the NSCAA. Parker became the first coach in NCAA history to reach the NCAA Tournament at the Division I, II and III levels when his 1993 squad made a Division I appearance. Since then, the Spartans have qualified for the NCAA Tournament a total of seven times as a Division I member, including a second round appearance in 1998 and a round of 16 appearance

last year. During Parker’s tenure, UNCG has won nine conference titles, including five during its Division I era. Parker led UNCG to SoCon titles in 1997, 1998 and 2004. In fact, UNCG has the best winninig percentage in Southern Conference action amongst member schools, going 47-11-3 since joining the league in 1997 for a .795 winning percentage. Three of Parker’s national titles came as the head coach at Lock Haven, where his teams won back-to-back Division III championships in 1977 and 1978 and a Division II championship in 1980. His success with the 1980 team – at 21-0-0, the only unbeaten, untied team in the country – earned him NIKE/Soccer America Coach of the Year honors. His teams have also claimed the NCAA Scoring Statstical Award twice (1998 & 2002) for having the nation’s leading scoring team. In addition to his success at the collegiate level, Parker has also achieved at the professional level as coach of the USISL Greensboro Dynamo. He coached the Dynamo from 1993-95 and won back-toback USISL national championships. Parker has coached 11 All-Americans, including Siggi Eyjolfsson, UNCG’s first three-time All-American, and current UNCG star Randi Patterson, whose All-American status last year led him to a US National Team U-20 camp invite. Parker has also coached four Academic All-Americans, Eyjolfsson, Mark Fulk, Cliff Patterson and Darren McDonough. A native of Bradford, England, Parker was a graduate assistant coach at UNC Chapel Hill in 1971 before moving to Lock Haven as an assistant in 1972.

Last year, Central Florida went 11-7-2, losing to Wake Forest in the second round of the NCAA College Cup, last year.

2005 UNCG Men’s Soccer Media Guide • 15


The Southern Conference, which enters its 85th season of intercollegiate competition in 2005, has become known as one of the nation’s leaders in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has excelled as the premier Division I-AA football conference since earning that classification in 1981. The Conference currently consists of 11 members in four states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Throughout its history, the Southern Conference has been an innovator in college athletics. The Southern Conference was the first “super conference” with its charter membership including the likes of Alabama, Auburn, and North Carolina. The SoCon, as it has come to be known by headline writers throughout the country, is the league that gave birth to the three-point shot in college basketball and was the college home of such sporting greats as Arnold Palmer, Jerry West and Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on Verizon/CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes-Scholarship winners have been selected from the conference. The Southern Conference office is located in the Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, SC. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, the Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the SoCon a first class meeting area as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. MEMBERSHIP HISTORY The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. Fourteen institutions from the 30-member Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) reorganized as the Southern Conference. Those charter members included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. Athletic competition began in the fall of 1921. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. Virginia Military Institute became a member in 1925 and Duke University came into the fold in 1929. Since then, conference membership has experienced a series of membership changes with 42 institutions having been affiliated with the league. The league has undergone two major transitions during its history. The first occurred in December 1932 when the Southeastern Conference was formed out of the 23-school Southern Conference. The league’s 13 members west and south of the Appalachian Mountains reorganized to help reduce the extensive travel demands that were present in the league at the time. In 1936, the Southern Conference invited The Citadel, William & Mary, Davidson, Furman, Richmond and Wake Forest to join the membership. The second major shift happened in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest officially withdrew from the league to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. This change was brought about due to the desire of many of those schools to schedule a greater number of regular season basketball games against their local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Southeastern states. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. The most recent 16 • 2005 UNCG Men’s Soccer Media Guide

addition, Elon University, joined the Southern Conference on July 1, 2003. The Phoenix replaced Virginia Military Institute which left the conference on June 30, 2003. East Tennessee State, which joined the SoCon in 1978, left the conference following the conclusion of the 2004-05 academic year. LEADERSHIP Entering the 2005 football campaign, Geoff Cabe serves as the Southern Conference’s interim commissioner. A member of the conference staff since 1988, Cabe has been involved in every facet of the SoCon’s operation. Since 2002, he has been senior associate commissioner where his duties have included serving as the executive producer for all of the SoCon’s championship events and coordinator of all external relationships for the conference. Cabe previously headed up the league’s media relations department (1991-95) and its championships area (1995-99) and has been both an assistant commissioner and associate commissioner. Cabe, now in his second term as the interim commissioner, replaced Danny Morrison who served as commissioner from November 13, 2001 until June 15, 2005. Morrison recently became the director of athletics at Texas Christian University. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. He was succeeded by Dave Hart in 1987 who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, NC to Asheville, NC. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball Tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current SoCon logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. He became the president of the Asheville franchise of the National Basketball Development League in 2001. CHAMPIONSHIPS HISTORY/ALUMNI The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. In May of 1923, the league held its first outdoor track and field championship in Montgomery, Ala. Mississippi A&M (now Mississippi State) captured six individual titles on its way to winning the team championship. Two other sports - cross country and tennis - held their first championships during the 1920s. North Carolina won the initial cross country team championship in 1926 in Athens, GA. Tennis crowned its first singles and doubles champions in New Orleans, LA in 1928. Donald Cram of Vanderbilt was the league’s first singles champion, while Leonard Chamberlin and Maurie Bayon of Tulane won the doubles title. The 1930s saw four more sports - wrestling, indoor track and field, swimming and golf - celebrate their first conference championships. VMI played host to and won the first league wrestling team championship in 1930. Washington & Lee won the first indoor track team championship, which also took place in 1930 and was held at Chapel Hill, NC. The University of Virginia hosted and won the first league swimming championship in 1933, while Duke captured the first conference golf team title at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC later that same year. Baseball was introduced as a Southern Conference sport in 1947 as Clemson captured the league championship that year. Rifle held its first conference championship in 1956, while soccer

was the most recently added men’s sport in 1967. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season. That year, volleyball, basketball and tennis championships were held in the league. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Southern Conference currently declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf and softball. Men’s basketball was the first sport in which the conference produced a championship. The league tournament is the nation’s oldest, with the inaugural championship held in Atlanta in 1922. Not only was the Southern Conference Tournament the first of its kind, the league also helped change the face of college basketball in 1980 when, at the request of the NCAA Rules Committee, the league began a season-long experiment with a 22-foot three-point field goal. Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made the first three-point field goal in college basketball history in a game against Middle Tennessee State. Women’s basketball competition began in the Southern Conference in 1983-84 with seven teams, five of whom are still members of the league: Appalachian State, Chattanooga, Davidson, Furman and Western Carolina. Since 1984, seven different teams have claimed at least a share of the regular season crown. Chattanooga has the most overall titles with 11, five of them shared. In baseball, Wake Forest advanced to the championship game of the NCAA College World Series in 1949 before falling to Texas. Demon Deacon second baseman Charles Teague was named the CWS Most Valuable Player. The Citadel made history in 1990 by becoming the first military school to make an appearance at the College World Series. The Bulldogs were joined that season at the CWS by current conference member Georgia Southern. One of the Southern Conference’s more famous baseball alums is Duke’s Dick Groat. He went on to a 14-year career in the major leagues. In 1960, he was named the National League MVP after he led the league in batting with a .325 average for the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Among Southern Conference alums to grace Major League Baseball fields have been Atlee Hammaker (East Tennessee State), Jeff Montgomery (Marshall) and Mike Ramsey (Appalachian State). SoCon active MLB players include Angles third baseman Dallas McPherson (The Citadel), and pitchers Britt Reames (The Citadel) and Ryan Glynn (VMI) who both pitched with Oakland in 2005. Arnold Palmer, perhaps the most famous golfer to have ever lived, competed under the Southern Conference banner as a collegian at Wake Forest. He took medalist honors at the Southern Conference Tournament in 1948 and 1949 and was the tournament’s runner-up in 1950. Palmer was the medalist at the NCAA Golf Championships in 1949 and 1950. He went on to become one of the most accomplished golfers to play on the professional tour. Palmer won 60 tournaments while competing on the PGA Tour and has added 10 more victories as a member of the Senior PGA Tour. He has also won eight major championships - four Masters, two British Opens, one US Open and one US Amateur. Women’s sports are relatively young in the league’s history. In 1992-93, the Southern Conference celebrated its 10th Anniversary of women’s athletics. Furman golfer Dottie Pepper was named the Southern Conference Women’s Athlete-of-the-Decade in conjunction with that event. Appalachian State’s Mary Jayne Harrelson won the NCAA Outdoor title at 1500 meters in 1999 and 2001. Most recently, Furman’s Brandi Jackson won the NCAA Women’s Golf East Regional in the spring of 2003.

2004 Southern Conference Champions


Homecoming/FallFest Weekend Games At The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Homecoming is celebrated during FallFest weekend, most years in conjunction with a men’s soccer game. This year, FallFest will be celebrated on the weekend of September 23-25, meaning that UNCG’s game against William & Mary will serve as the “Homecoming Game.”

The 2004 Spartan squad was a No. 1-ranked team for four weeks, including three as a unanimous ranking in all four national polls. It was the first time a UNCG squad had been ranked No. 1 since the program’s move to Division I. 2002 14-8-0, 5-3-0 SoCon Coach: Michael Parker A 31 Mercer........................................

Due to a scheduling conflict, UNCG did not play at home during FallFest last year, which ironically fell in the middle of the Spartans’ 17-game unbeaten streak to open the season. In 2003, UNCG tied Furman, 1-1, during FallFest, makring only the fourth time in 20 tries that the Spartans were not victorious during FallFest / Homecoming activities. All-time, UNCG is 16-2-2 on homecoming.

• A bermuda style naturalgrass playing field equipped with a state-of-the-art drainage system capable of removing up to six inches of water within a 24-hour period. • A Wall of Honor recognizing outstanding UNCG soccer players and coaches on the stadium concourse (pictured at the bottom of the page). The UNCG Soccer Stadium is a modern soccer-only facility located in the heart of campus. Both the men’s and women’s teams will enter their 16th season in the state-of-the-art facility. Prior to the 1990 season, UNCG played on the same site, which was then-known as Campus Field. However, prior to the start of the 1991 season, the stadium underwent a major facelift to become what fans see today. Prior to the renovation, the UNCG men’s soccer team was as dominant on its home field as it is today. With the exception of most of the 1981 season and all of the 1982 season, the site of UNCG Soccer Stadium has served as the home field for the Spartans for more than 25 seasons. In that time, UNCG is an amazing 219-68-15 (.727). Still today, the $3.6 million stadium rivals any collegiate soccer facility in the nation. Among its several outstanding features: • Permanent seating for 3,540 spectators in the grandstand along the east sideline, including 1,112 chairback seats in three sections at midfield and another 2,428 bleacher seats (with backs) in four other sections. • Lighting, at 150-candle power, to accomodate live TV coverage. • A soccer scoreboard with message center, press box and brick wall completely surrounding the facility.

The stadium’s opening coincided with UNCG’s entry into NCAA Division I competition. It was dedicated before a sellout crowd September 7, 1991, as the men’s team christened the new facility with a 31 win over Campbell. Four nights later, the squad stunned the college soccer world by defeating then-No. 2 NC State, 2-1. The first women’s soccer game played in UNCG Soccer Stadium was against Duke on September 11, 1991. The Blue Devils blanked the Spartans, 4-0. The first victory for UNCG came in a 7-0 rout of Erskine on September 13, 1991. UNCG owns one of the strongest home field advantages in the country. In 14 seasons in the stadium, the women’s team is 90-43-7 (.668), while the men’s team is 104-30-8 (.761). It was dedicated before a sellout crowd Sept. 7, 1991, as the men’s team christened the new facility with a 3-1 win over Campbell. Four nights later, the squad stunned the college soccer world by defeating thenNo. 2 North Carolina State 2-1. The largest crowd to attend a UNCG athletic event at the stadium was 4,225 on Oct. 5, 1991, for a homecoming men’s soccer game against Ohio State. The Spartans won 60. Besides providing UNCG’s teams with a first-class home, the stadium has also attracted a number of outside events to the

campus. UNCG hosted the semifinal and final rounds of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Championship in 1997 and 1998, focusing nationwide attention on Greensboro. A championship-record 20,058 fans attended in 1998, including a stadium single-event record 10,583 for the final. The championship was nationally televised by ESPN. The stadium served as a site for the U.S. Youth Soccer Association regional championship during the summer of 1997. The Olympic champion women’s national soccer team played the opening game in the Victory Tour presented by Nike in the stadium April 24, 1997, defeating France. Also, prior to the 1996 Olympic Games, the Norwegian women’s soccer team trained at the stadium and played an exhibition match against United States select players. A match between the men’s national teams of the U.S. and Canada was played in the stadium in 1992. The stadium served as the home of the professional Greensboro Dynamo from 1993-95, and is the site of the NC East-West High School All-Star soccer games each year. In the summer of 2001, the Boston Breakers of the WUSA held their preseason camp in the stadium. UNCG Soccer Stadium has also hosted numerous

Big South, Southern Conference and NCAA Tournament matches, including the 2004 SoCon women’s soccer tournament and the 2004 NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament’s second and third rounds.

2004 Southern Conference Champions


With a record number 15,347 students enrolled for Fall 2004, a dedicated faculty and staff numbering more than 2,000, and exciting new developments underway, UNCG is rapidly taking its place as one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the country. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is classified as a Doctoral/Research-Intensive University. The University was established in 1891 and became coeducational in 1963. The 200-acre campus is located one mile from the center of Greensboro, a city of 227,793. The Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point Metropolitan Statistical Area has a population of approximately 1,089,155, with the population of Guilford County representing approximately 390,000.

University History

The University has a rich history. It was chartered Feb. 18, 1891, as the State Normal and Industrial School (later College), the first state-supported school for the higher education of women in North Carolina. The institution came into being as a direct result of a crusade made by Charles Duncan McIver on behalf of the education of women. Other pioneers in public school education — notably, Charles B. Aycock, Edwin A. Alderman, and James Y. Joyner — came to Dr. McIver’s assistance; but to him, more than to any other individual, the University owes its foundation. In the past century the University has evolved in its mission, as suggested with its sequence of names. It was known first as the State Normal and Industrial School, and after 1896 as the State Normal and Industrial College until 1919. During the period 1919-1931 it was known as the North Carolina College for Women, and became the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina from 1932 to 1963. It is warmly remembered as “the WC” by its many alumnae of the period. During the years 1932-1963 the University was one of the three branches of the Consolidated University of North Carolina. The other branches included The University of North Carolina (at Chapel Hill) and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (at Raleigh). In 1962, the Board of Trustees recommended that the Greensboro campus become coeducational at all levels of instruction in the fall of 1964. Subsequently, by act of the General Assembly in the Spring of 1963, the name of the institution was changed to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In December of 1934, during the years of the Consolidated University, the Woman’s College Section of the Alpha of North Carolina Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa was installed. (Alpha Chapter is the one at Chapel Hill.) On February 17, 1956 Epsilon Chapter of North Carolina was installed at this campus. In October of 1971 the North Carolina General Assembly adopted legislation which combined all 16 of the state-supported institutions of higher education into a single University of North Carolina. The UNC system is governed by a board of governors and administered by a president. Each constituent institution has a separate board of trustees and is administered by a chancellor. The crusader for founding the institution, Charles Duncan McIver, served the institution as its first chief executive officer with the title of President. By act of the Board of Trustees in 1945, the title was changed to Chancellor. Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan became UNCG’s first woman chancellor in January 1995, succeeding Dr. Debra W. Stewart, Dean of the Graduate School at North Carolina State University who was named Interim Chancellor in the summer of 1994. During its first seven decades, the institution’s mission was to prepare women, primarily undergraduates, for the most effective living of that day. Today that goal — effective living — remains the same, but its scope has been greatly expanded. As UNCG, it now offers men and women over 150 graduate and undergraduate programs and provides opportunities Ranked No. 1 in the nation for four weeks in 2004

to apply classroom learning to real life situations through internships and practica. It also offers students the chance to tailor-make their own programs of study based on individual needs and goals. Although contemporary in its educational program, UNCG is also realistic. In its effort to prepare graduates for effective living, it has built into its program the flexibility needed to meet the rapidly changing needs of society. UNCG, therefore, will remain a university in transition, not satisfied with yesterday or today, but always looking toward tomorrow.

ricular and coeducational activities. There are more than 130 student organizations, an active Student Government, fraternities and sororities, and a Campus Recreation program which offers informal, intramural and club sports, as well as an extensive outdoor adventure program. The 76 buildings on the campus reflect the 110-year history of the University. Also, there are new features, including a new, $26 million music building which opened in August 1999, and renovations to the Elliott University Center, which were recently completed. A new baseball stadium opened in February 1999. UNCG will receive approximately $159 million from the state for construction and renovation, based on voter approval of the Higher Education Bonds last November 7. A $46 million science building is the centerpiece of the new projects. Groundbreaking took place in spring of 2001. The Second Century Campaign for UNCG concluded Dec. 31, 1998, after five years and raised $55.4 million to create 77 new scholarship and fellowship funds, as well as funds for research, programs and acquisitions. In the Fall of 2004, the University announced that its newest campaign, entitled the Students First Campaign. is almost one-quarter of the way to its goal of $78 million. The Students First Campaign will set aside $52 million for scholarships to make UNCG the school of choice for top high school students in the North Carolina and elsewhere. Remaining funds will also be used for endowments to attract top professors, expansion of university facilities and expansion of public services. UNCG hopes to meet its goal by the year 2009. UNCG is a member of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) and the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AASCU). In athletics, UNCG began NCAA Division I competition in 1991 and is a member of the Southern Conference.

Athletes at UNCG are not an exception to the rule. At the end of each of the last two academic years, more than 40% of UNCG student-athletes held a grade-point-average of 3.0 or better. Nearly one-third of UNCG’s 268 student-athletes made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (3.0 GPA in a semester) in both semester during the 2004-05 academic year. In October 2004, “Cosmo GIRL”, a magazine geared towards young women, rated UNCG one of the Top 50 institutions in America. For its study, the magazine focused on specific factors important to female students: small class size, prominent female faculty, strong women’s athletic programs, a career center that facilitates internship opportunities, leadership options among clubs and activities and an active alumni network. The finalists were selected from 2,685 colleges and universities. In August 2004, The Princeton Review rated UNCG the second-best bargain in its “The Best 357 Colleges” guide. It marked the sixth-straight UNCG appeared in the guide, and its highest-ever rating. UNCG was also ranked in the Top 50 public universities by Consumer’s Digest, making it the only institution to appear in both rankings. In-state tuition and room and board rates for UNCG are just over $9,000 per year, while out-of-state rates are just over $20,000 per year.

The UNCG Plan In spring 1998, the University community adopted The UNCG Plan, a comprehensive document developed by the University Planning Council that articulates the vision of the University and identifies five key strategic directions which will shape its future: • UNCG will provide exemplary learning environments. • UNCG will expand its research and infuse the excitement of scholarship into its teaching and learning. • UNCG will build a strong sense of community as a student-centered university. • UNCG will expand its outreach in the Piedmont Triad, the state of North Carolina, and beyond. • UNCG will increase its enrollment by actively recruiting and retaining students with the academic preparedness and potential to succeed in a rigorous academic environment.

The Rock Not all colleges and universities can boast a message board with a circumference of 25’ and a width that exceeds 10’. UNCG houses a campus marker that is a visual representation of University history, tradition, and legacy. Known simply as “The Rock” — not to be confused with the nationally recognized wrestler/actor — the boulder-sized message board was brought to UNCG’s campus in 1973 by members of Alpha Phi Omega. Initially located where the fountain is today, it currently rests between the Dining Hall and Jackson Library, where it has resided since 1987. Rather than force students and the community to solely rely upon cluttered bulletin boards, The Rock is an alternate campus informant. Students also know the unwritten rule that the painted messages on The Rock can be removed after 24 hours. Thus, within a week’s time, seven messages could be posted on The Rock. This also speaks to the many activities and events that the University supports. Easy access and its central location are other reasons The Rock is well known on campus. Plus, The Rock’s changing colors and special messages help attract the attention of students and visitors to the University. Those who encounter The Rock for the first time are undoubtedly taken aback by its grandiose appearance and are forced to wonder about its significance. The Rock, with its large exterior and eye-catching graphics, is an important part of UNCG’s history and legacy and is a solid representation of the University’s unyielding belief in and dedication to tradition and uniqueness.

UNCG Chancellor Dr. Patricia Sullivan Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan, who has served as UNCG’s Chancellor since January 1, 1995, is the institution’s ninth chief executive and the first woman to serve in the position. Her leadership has sustained UNCG’s record of excellence and prepared a solid foundation for the future. UNCG was founded as State Normal and Industrial School, a college for women in 1891. The institution became coeducational in 1963. Today, UNCG offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs. Sullivan led the University through a strategic planning process that produced the UNCG Plan. Created for five-year increments, the Plan provides a framework for enhancing UNCG’s position as a diverse, student-centered research university, linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery, and service. Under Dr. Sullivan’s leadership, enrollment at UNCG exceeded 15,000 in fall 2005, while academic standards for admission have increased. The campus continues to lead the UNC system in minority enrollment, underscoring UNCG’s commitment to diversity. New undergraduate programs for freshman include Communication Across the Curriculum and the living-learning communities. Distinctive graduate programs include genetic counseling and management information systems, along with new Ph.D. programs in the areas of nursing, public health, economics, geography, history, information technology and special education. Funding to support research and community projects has continued to grow, along with giving by the University’s friends and supporters. UNCG’s new Students First Campaign is under way, with a goal of raising $78.2 million through 2009. The earlier Second Century Campaign for UNCG, which ended in December 1998, raised $55.4 million, far exceeding the original goal of $42.8

million. As UNCG’s most ardent advocate, Dr. Sullivan has made a public case for more state appropriations, which have brought additional funding for facilities. These efforts have resulted in a number of capital improvements at UNCG. Currently under construction are the Studio Art Center and a Hall for Humanities and Research Administration, both funded by the North Carolina Higher Education Bonds, and a new 400-bed residence hall - all expected to be completed for use in the 2006-07 year. Structures already completed include a $46 million Science Building, a $26 million School of Music building, a $5 million baseball stadium and student recreation area, and a major renovation for the Elliott University Center, UNCG’s student union. A native of Staten Island, NY, Dr. Sullivan is a graduate of St. John’s University, and earned her master’s and Ph.D. degrees in biology from New York University. She came to UNCG from Texas Woman’s University, where she was vice president for academic affairs for seven years. She also was interim president there for a year. From 1981-87, she was dean of the college at Salem College in WinstonSalem. She is married to Dr. Charles Sullivan, an electrical and computer software engineer. Dr. Sullivan received the honorary Doctor of Pedagogy degree from St. John’s University in 1999. Her other awards and honors include: selection as one of 10 recipients of the 2003 Women in Business Awards and as one of “10 People to Watch in 2004,” annual honors by The Business Journal; and being named the 2003 inductee for the Business Leaders Hall of Fame of the Central North Carolina Junior Achievement chapter. Her academic honors include memberships in Beta Beta Beta biology honor society, Sigma Xi, and Phi Kappa Phi. She also was an NYU Honors Scholar.

Director of Athletics Nelson Bobb Now in his 23rd year as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at UNCG, Nelson E. Bobb has developed a nationally recognized program that has continually succeeded in competition as well as in the classroom. Bobb, the first full-time athletic director at the University, is the primary architect of a program that now features 16 NCAA Division I teams, eight for men and eight for women. When he arrived in July 1983, there were eight Division III teams. The University authorized the shift to Division I in February 1987 and he guided the program through the unprecedented change in competitive status in only five years. UNCG is one of only a dozen institutions to ever compete in all three divisions. However, no other institution has made the complete shift of all teams from Division III to Division I in that time frame. In addition, with the reconstruction of UNCG’s softball venue this past year, he has overseen a complete overhaul of every UNCG athletic facility. During his tenure, he has watched over the construction or renovation of all of the Spartans’ athletic venues, beginning with serving on the committee that built Fleming Gymnasium and the HHP Building in 1989, moving onto the transformation of Campus Field into what is today UNCG Soccer Stadium in 1991, the construction of the UNCG Baseball Stadium in 1999, the renovation and lighting of the UNCG Tennis Courts in 1999, and current projects that include the transformation of UNCG’s softball facility to become a top-of-the-line stadium venue this coming fall and the reconfiguration of seating in Fleming Gym, which began this past summer. Under Bobb’s guidance, Spartan student-athletes have consistently graduated at a rate equal to or higher than the general student population at UNCG. Each of the last two academic years, more than 40 percent of UNCG’s student-athletes earned Dean’s List. In addition, during Bobb’s 22-year tenure, UNCG student-athletes have graduated at a higher rate than the University graduation rate every year. Other recent program accomplishments include completing the NCAA certification process for Division I institutions twice and successfully transitioning the department’s teams into Southern Conference membership. Under Bobb’s leadership, UNCG hosted the final two rounds of the 1997 and 1998 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, and was home to Olympic athletes from several countries for training prior to the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996. During his tenure, UNCG teams have won 33 conference tournament titles, 24 as an NCAA Division I member. They have also won 62 conference regular season titles, 36 of those since moving to NCAA Division I. UNCG earned the Commissioner’s Cup for overall excellence in the Big South for three consecutive years. While Bobb was athletic director in the 1980’s, the men’s soccer team won four Division III national championships and the women’s basketball team made five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances with a third-place finish in 1988. During his tenure at UNCG, Bobb has also served in various NCAA appointments, including serving on one of the first NCAA Certification

teams. Most recently, Bobb served on the Division I Men’s Soccer National Committee and had a two-year term as the chair of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rules Committee. UNCG student-athletes have received numerous awards. In 1984, he established the Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award to honor the studentathlete(s) posting the highest grade-point average annually. Bobb, a native of Gahanna, OH, oversees a staff of more than 50 full and part-time employees with administrative divisions of administration and business, student welfare, facilities and operations and integrated public affairs within the department. Before coming to UNCG, Bobb served as an assistant athletic director at Cornell University for five years. He also served as an assistant football coach at Cornell for nine seasons. A 1970 graduate of Kent State (OH) with a bachelor’s degree in education, Bobb also holds a master’s degree in secondary education from Kent. As an undergraduate, he was a three-year letterwinner on the football team as an offensive guard and earned All-Academic recognition from the Mid-American Conference as a junior. He was an all-conference choice his senior year.

2004 Southern Conference Champions


The overnight success of the UNCG athletics program has been some 60 years in the making. Spartan teams are big achievers in their 15th year in Division I competition. The success story however, began while UNCG was still the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina and intercollegiate competition for women was still in its infancy.

1940s

Nancy Porter may have been the first student-athlete in the modern sense of the word at UNCG. The Ohio native competed in national women’s golf tournaments as early as 1948.

1950s

Women’s College hosted the 10th national golf tournament in 1954 at the Starmount Country Club. The College fielded regionally competitive teams that had their beginnings in club sports, play days and other recreational events.

1960s

UNCG launched women’s basketball in 1963 under coach Ellen Griffin. Other early teams were tennis, golf and field hockey. LPGA Hall of Famer Carol Mann was a student at UNCG. She left school early to turn professional. The University became co-educational in 1963. Men’s athletics were added in 1967-68 and the intercollegiate program for men and women received formal recognition from the University. Men’s teams joined the Dixie Conference in 1968. Bowling was one of the early men’s teams. UNCG teams were nicknamed the Spartans.
