How some UT students use their breaks to lend a hand
Donor Support Critical to UT’s Success If you were on the UT campus this summer you likely saw more construction than any time in UT’s history. We had numerous projects underway, including academic and office space, athletic facilities, residence halls and infrastructure. All these projects — and the impact they have on students’ education — are a testament to the support from alumni, parents and friends of the University. The Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex, which is currently being built on the west side of campus on Kennedy Boulevard, is but one example of this support. The Naimoli family has been involved with UT since the 1980s. Vince Naimoli, chairman and founding partner of the Tampa Bay Rays, is a chairman emeritus of the UT Board of Trustees and in 1999 established UT’s Naimoli Institute for Business Strategy. The Naimoli family’s support has also funded improvements at UT’s tennis and softball complexes, now called, respectively, the Naimoli and Young Family Tennis Complex and the Naimoli Family Softball Stadium, as well as endowed scholarships for a male and female student athlete. The new complex, which is described in more detail on page 9, is expected to be dedicated in early 2013. We know that healthy, active students perform better in the classroom, so this facility will provide another venue for students to recreate, either in club sports, intramurals or athletics. It is relationships like these — at every level — that mean so much to the University. Even donors who give modest amounts, but make it a point to give every year, are critical to our success at changing lives. The donor honor roll that begins on page 49 acknowledges these relationships. It lists the individuals, corporations and foundations that donated to UT during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Once again, the outpouring of support for our University was outstanding, and I thank each and every one of you. On a sadder note, this year we lost Bill Krusen Sr., who was one of our longest serving trustees (see page 39). His 42-year commitment to making UT a prestigious, model institution and a pillar of higher learning was outstanding. UT wouldn’t be what it is today without friends such as Bill Krusen. I hope this year that each and every one of you has an opportunity to visit the campus to see the projects made possible through your generous contributions. It’s a great time to visit the renovated Martinez Athletics Center or the new Health Sciences and Human Performance building, sit in a class, attend an athletic contest or visit with fellow parents or classmates during Parents Weekend and/or Homecoming. I urge you to see for yourself how your gifts help sustain all that is special about The University of Tampa.

A Tree Worth Rooting For Live oak moved 400 feet to make room for new athletics facility The morning of May 16 dawned overcast and drizzly, not ideal for most construction projects. But Richard Bailey was delighted. “This is perfect weather to move a tree,” he said, noting that the tree was receiving constant watering throughout the process. The tree being moved — a 65-foot live oak — was no ordinary tree. With a stem (trunk) at 36 inches in diameter, the tree is considered a “grand tree” by the city of Tampa and is one of the largest ever moved in Hillsborough County. For decades, the oak stood next to North Gilchrist Avenue, between North A Street and West Kennedy Boulevard, right where the University is constructing the Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex (see story pg. 9). Rather than cut it down, the University decided to preserve and 2 UTjournal fall 2012
transplant the tree to a site approximately 400 feet southwest. “There’s really no non-invasive way to tell how old the tree is,” said Bailey, the arborist for the project. “What we do know is this is a viable, mature tree, and it is an asset for the University. It will be here long after we’re gone.” Lake Worth, FL-based South Coast Grower completed the move. For several months, Jon Bachmann, president of the company, worked to prepare the tree for the move, pruning the tree’s estimated 70-foot canopy and carefully hand digging the root system. Prior to moving day, all of the dirt around the tree’s root ball was moved away, leaving the tree on its own little island of soil about three feet deep. Then workers bored 12-inch holes beneath the tree and pushed steel Ibeams into the holes. A steel sheet was
slid on top of the I-beams to provide support. The tree was then lifted using a hydraulic jack onto motorized dollies, which drove it — very slowly — to its new home. Now that the tree is settled in its new home, the University will watch it carefully over the next few years. Bailey said he worked with the University to develop a five-year maintenance plan and that the most crucial element in the first few weeks after the move is proper watering. This tree is not the first that the University has moved. In 2000, UT relocated two 50-foot oak trees to make room for the Vaughn Center. Those trees are still alive and thriving on the edge of the Plant Hall faculty-staff parking lot. To view a video of the tree on the move, go to http://bit.ly/grandoak.
“I find comfort in knowing the skills I learned, from collaboration to how to have a discussion and conflict with civility, will help me in any career.” — Colleen Itani ’12 on the President’s Leadership Fellows program
UT Grad Awarded Fulbright Carlos J. Salinas Zárate ’12, who graduated in August with a Bachelor of Science in international business and economics, was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to continue his studies in Spain and New York City. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government with alumni that include 43 Nobel and 81 Pulitzer Prize winners, 28 MacArthur Foundation Fellows and 29 who have served as heads of state or government. The particular grant Salinas Zárate applied for is awarded to only one student in the U.S. each year and will cover all of his expenses during his studies. “I am thrilled I got this opportunity. I cannot believe I was selected for such an amazing and promising program among excellent applicants,” he said. He will begin his graduate studies at the Instituto de Empresa (IE) in Madrid in October, working toward a master’s degree in business and economic digital communication. After finishing that program, he will intern with UNESCO headquarters in Paris for six months. He will then continue his graduate studies at Columbia University in New York
City, working toward a second master’s degree in public administration. Salinas Zárate is the second UT student in two years to receive a Fulbright Fellowship. Bethany Kreider ’10 spent 10 months in Indonesia on a Fulbright grant, working with 10th through 12th graders (see story page 34). In addition, Catherine Gambel ’12 received a U.S. Department of State Critical Language Scholarship to study Arabic in Tunis, Tunisia, from May 30 to July 28.
UT a “Best College” UT has been named one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education by The Princeton Review. The University is one of six schools to be added to the annual edition of the guidebook The Best 377 Colleges: 2013 Edition. Go to www.ut.edu/recognitions for a complete list of UT’s rankings.
Fellows Evolve into Leaders The first group of President’s Leadership Fellows (PLF) graduated in May. A four-year University scholarship program, PLF accepts 25 freshmen each year who will travel through the program together as a group, called a cohort. The goal of the program is to refine their ability to lead in a global world. Each year of the program has a specific focus: self, team, community and change, and global leadership. In the third year, the group facilitates a sustainable community change project that develops fellows into responsibly engaged citizens. Cohort one partnered with the Tampa Heights neighborhood to build a community garden. Colleen Itani ’12 said being in the program allowed her to develop as an individual, engage in the UT and Tampa communities, and foster a sense of self. “I find comfort in knowing the skills I learned, from collaboration to how to have a discussion and conflict with civility, will help me in any career,” she said. At a dinner he and his wife Renée hosted for the PLF graduates, President Ronald Vaughn encouraged the group to continue to be involved. “You’ve learned that excellence is not a single act but a habit,” he said. “It is crucial in our community with a sea of problems and challenges for leaders like you to step up and create positive social change.” UTjournal fall 2012 3

In his new book, Ryan Cragun, assistant professor of sociology, sets the record straight on Mormonism.
The Mormon Question Professor’s new book presents unbiased look at Mitt Romney’s religion Within the title of his new book, Ryan Cragun, assistant professor of sociology, poses the question on many voters’ minds these days: could I vote for a Mormon for president? Cragun, whose research interests include Mormonism and atheism, first thought of the idea for the book when he began seeing news articles about Mitt Romney and his religious
beliefs pop up in nationwide outlets last fall. He found himself bothered by the poor reporting on many aspects of Mormonism. “In some cases the information was wrong, in some cases I felt it could have been explained better,” he said. Raised in the Mormon faith (though he no longer considers himself a Mormon) and a widely-published scholar of the
religion, Cragun felt he was uniquely suited to set the record straight about the religion. He teamed up with a fellow Mormonism scholar, Rick Phillips, an associate professor of sociology at the University of North Florida, to answer the “top 20” questions people may have about Mormonism in the book, Could I Vote for a Mormon for President?: An Election Year Guide to Mitt Romney’s Religion. “Rick was raised as a Mormon as well, so all of this is second nature to us,” said Cragun. “We came up with this idea in December 2011 and were about three-quarters done with the draft before it was even a sure thing that Mitt Romney would clinch the nomination.” Designed to be an objective introduction to Mormonism, each chapter in the book addresses an overarching question, from “Is Mormonism a cult?” and “What’s the deal with polygamy?” to “Do Mormons really believe God lives near a giant star named Kolob?” After seeing all of the misreported and conflicting information out there, Cragun said their goal for the book was to present the facts about Mormonism, an unbiased look at the doctrine and policy of the church. For those interested in digging deeper into all sides of an issue, each chapter ends with suggestions for futher reading on the topic. “The point we’re trying to make is that yes, some of these beliefs are weird. But aren’t all religions a little weird?” said Cragun. “Vote based on someone’s politics, not based on their religion.”

Program Rewards Recyclers, Helps Vets The more cans and bottles recycled, the more PepsiCo will donate to a program for post-9/11 veterans with disabilities There’s an impressive new machine on campus — and it’s not a computer or microscope. This spring, UT rolled out the PepsiCo Dream Machine recycling program, which provides the University community with a convenient and rewarding way to recycle their bottles and cans while on-the-go. Created in collaboration with Waste Management, the Dream Machine initiative is introducing thousands of recycling bins and kiosks at popular public locations across North America. Dream Machine kiosks are computerized receptacles that include a personal reward system, powered by Greenopolis, which allows users to earn points for every bottle or can they recycle in the kiosk and redeem those points for local discounts on
entertainment, dining and travel. Additionally, the more bottles and cans people recycle in the Dream Machines at UT and across the nation, the more support PepsiCo will provide to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities. A national program, the bootcamp offers free experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 U.S. veterans with disabilities. With approximately 4,000 Dream Machines located in 40 states to-date, the program aims to create strategic partnerships to help increase the U.S. beverage container recycling rate to 50 percent by 2018. To learn more about the Dream Machine, visit www.facebook.com/ DreamMachine.
UT’s Dream Machine kiosk is located between the Macdonald-Kelce Library and the Aquatic Center.

Residents of one of the Sunland Training Centers brush their teeth.
Professor Documents Sunland Training Centers For her sabbatical project last fall, Kim Curry, associate professor of nursing, investigated the history of the Sunland Training Centers, whose purpose was to educate and assist children with intellectual disabilities. The Sunland Training Centers were created in 1957 by an act of the Florida Legislature. The centers, which could house more than 1,000 patients each, were very popular as many doctors in those days recommended institutionalization as the best treatment for these children. “A lot of very good services were provided at the Sunland Centers, and there were many very dedicated workers,” said Curry, who worked at the center in Gainesville, FL, as a nursing student. She notes, however, that the centers were always underfunded and thus unable to provide all of the needed services. As a result, residents were rarely rehabilitated and able to be discharged. Many children spent their whole childhoods in one or another of the centers. With the buildings deteriorating and some instances of abuse and controversy, Curry said eventually the
Renovations to the Martinez Athletics Center have revitalized UT’s main athletic venue, with a new Sword & Shield room, lobby, locker rooms, Hall of Fame and offices. The project also added new space for the Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance (HSHP), as well as athletic training and ROTC. The facility will be rededicated on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 10:30 a.m. The building is named for Robert “Bob” Martinez, former governor of Florida, who will be in attendance. Tours of the athletic center and the HSHP building will follow the ceremony.
state stopped placing children in these big institutes and moved to a different model of care. Today, no public facilities to care for children with intellectual disabilities exist in Florida. “Through studying the social and political events that led to the creation, and eventual demise, of institutions like Sunland, we can get valuable information to guide us in designing health care systems of the future,” she said.

spartan sports Pascal Millien ’10 founded the Millien Dreams Foundation to help kids in his homeland of Haiti get an education.
Rising to the Challenge Alumnus’ foundation helps children in Haiti get an education Pascal Millien ’10 is always prepared for a challenge. Really, he’s always had to be prepared. At 10, Millien’s mother died suddenly, leaving him in the care of his grandmothers (Millien’s father left Haiti for America when he was young). 8 UTjournal fall 2012
Millien points to these early “pains” as the first inspirations he had to make a better life, for himself and for his family. “As a kid in Haiti, the biggest thing around is fútbol or soccer. It’s soccer, soccer, soccer,” Millien said. “In a lot
of ways for kids, there is no hope. The government is all about themselves. It’s challenging and tough, so soccer is sometimes the only way for kids.” He garnered attention early and was invited to join the Haitian junior developmental team at 12 years old, often playing well above his age group and facing older competitors. When he was 16, Millien left Haiti to join his father in Florida. Attending Auburndale High, not knowing English, Millien found himself facing a very different challenge. With the help of a school tutor, Millien quickly found his way in the classroom. But it was on the soccer field where the teenager excelled, helping Auburndale to the 2005 state Class 4A championship. Millien had a number of offers from top college soccer programs. He attended Lindsey Wilson College for a year, before finding a welcoming home at UT. “My three years at UT were great for me as a learning experience,” Millien said. “It helped me find my way in life. I learned as a student-athlete because I was pushed on the pitch and in the classroom, and those are the reasons I was able to get to my dream of playing professional (soccer).” Millien’s professional dreams came true when he was signed by the Tampa Bay Rowdies in 2010, where he made 49 appearances over two years, before joining the Sligo Rovers in the League of Ireland Premier Division. Just as his goals were starting to come together though, Millien’s attentions were drawn back to his homeland. In January 2010, Haiti was devastated by an earthquake. In the wake of the disaster, Millien couldn’t reach his family for days and when he was finally able to get through, found out he had lost a number of childhood friends, a former coach and his cousin.

“When I saw the pictures, my body went into shock, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t do anything,” he said. In the tragedy’s aftermath, Millien found a way he was all too familiar with to deal with it — he challenged himself. Always planning to find a way to help his homeland, the disaster inspired him to make good on that promise. “I always told God, ‘If you give me a chance to play professional (soccer), I will give back to the kids.’ That was my promise to Him and to myself,” he said. Along with his friend Alex Miles, he started the Millien Dreams Foundation, which helps kids in Haiti, through soccer, get an education and have a chance to safely play the game that has given its founder so much. The Millien Dreams Foundation is currently working on becoming a taxexempt organization so it can easily accept donations. In the meantime, Millien is funding the program through his salary and has 120 kids getting supplies, equipment and training. The challenge Millien has now set his sights on is having a full-time soccer and education academy by 2014. — Jarrett Guthrie

A New Place to Play Beginning in the spring of 2013, drivers on Kennedy Boulevard might get a glimpse of a lacrosse game, field hockey match or ultimate contest. Construction of a new athletic facility is underway in the southwest corner of the UT campus that will accommodate a variety of intramural sports and athletic events, including the men’s lacrosse and future women’s lacrosse teams (see sidebar). Plans for the facility include a multi-purpose field, a 1,450-seat stadium, two spectator berms, restrooms, a concession area, parking, team meeting rooms and a support building. The new field is planned to be artificial turf. A fence will be erected along Kennedy Boulevard, as well as a high net to keep errantthrown balls from disrupting traffic. The facility, which is being funded in part by Tampa’s Naimoli family, will be named the Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex. The Naimoli family has been involved with UT since the 1980s.
Vince Naimoli, chairman and founding partner of the Tampa Bay Rays, is a chairman emeritus of the UT Board of Trustees. In 1999, he established the Naimoli Institute for Business Strategy at UT. The family’s support has also funded improvements to UT’s tennis and softball complexes, now called, respectively, the Naimoli and Young Family Tennis Complex and the Naimoli Family Softball Stadium, as well as endowed scholarships for student athletes. Ronald Vaughn, UT president, said the addition of lacrosse teams and the demand for intramurals, as well as the increasing need for academic and athletic space, necessitates the development. He added that the University will eventually build academic buildings on the site of the existing intramural field on campus. “This project will give us more flexibility and green space into the future, and allow for academic expansion,” he said.
The Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex is set to open in early 2013.
UT is adding a women’s lacrosse program, which will begin competition in the spring of 2014. The team will compete at the NCAA Division II level, increasing UT’s number of varsity sports to 21. UT becomes the fourth school in the Sunshine State Conference to add the sport, joining Florida Southern College, Rollins College and St. Leo University. A national search for the first head women’s lacrosse coach is now underway.

For some UT students, a break is a chance to make a difference.

pring break. Those two words conjure up images of lounging on sunny beaches and late night parties, of mom’s home cooking and reconnecting with old friends. Picking up litter? Not so much. But that is exactly how a group of 11 UT students spent their spring break in 2010 at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary in Key West, FL. “We did a lot of kayaking, but our kayaks looked very different in that they were loaded up with the trash we collected from the beaches and mangroves,” said Heather Ptak ’12, an allied health major. In all, the group collected more than 2,000 pounds of trash during their time there. The trip was organized through the UT Alternative Breaks program, part of a trend in American higher education where students choose to forgo more traditional spring break activities and spend their spring break — or Thanksgiving or winter breaks — in an “alternative” way.

While in Thailand UT students took children from the Baan San Phan Orphanage for an elephant ride.
“not only were our students able to make an impact on the Thai kids, but our students came back impacted by the kids.”—chris gottlick An intensive service-learning program, alternative breaks give students the opportunity to volunteer with nonprofit organizations locally, nationally or abroad. At UT, nine to 10 trips are offered each year, ranging from weekend excursions to a full week or more. “What makes UT’s program unique is that it is basically student-run,” said Ptak, one of the student coordinators for the program. “At other institutions, staff does all the planning or even an outside vendor, but at UT we’re the ones doing the research and planning and organizing the trips.” Quite a feat when you consider the program’s recent excursion to Thailand. Ptak, who led the trip with fellow student coordinator Lauren Ridder ’12, said the trip was a year in the making. Language barriers, vaccinations and the details of a trip to Asia were more intense for this trip, but Ptak said the extra effort was worth it. From May 8 to 19, 13 students and two staff participants engaged with the orphan children at Baan San Fan Orphanage about three hours south of Phuket. They tutored English in the local school, which will help the students pass a national test on the language. They planted 150 trees at the orphanage and helped with gardening and maintenance of the home, including building a concrete driveway. “It was extremely rewarding to see how the participants jumped right into taking advantage of every opportunity from learning Thai, to teaching
English, helping around the orphanage and engaging in conversations with the children at Baan San Fan,” said Ptak. Chris Gottlick, coordinator of intramural sports, played soccer with the children every evening and helped clear the overgrown soccer field with some rustic tools. “Without a doubt, not only were our students able to make an impact on the Thai kids, but our students came back impacted by the kids,” Gottlick said. Lindsey Pavlick ’13, a PEACE volunteer coordinator and public health major, said this trip made her look at her life with a new perspective and appreciation. “Some of the children we worked with had lost their homes, families and friends from the tragic tsunami

of 2004, yet they continued to wake up every morning with huge, beautiful smiles on their faces,” said Pavlick. “This community showed me that one needs to appreciate every day at the present moment and to never take life for granted.” The alternative breaks program is open to all full time students in good standing and the application process, which is blind, can be very competitive. For the Thailand trip, there were 40 applicants, but spots for only 16. The trips are subsidized through Student Government so students only pay

a fraction of the fees — for a weekend trip, as little as $40-60; for Thailand, the cost was just $1,300. For Amanda Adas ’09, who has been on alternative breaks both as a student and as a staff adviser, this support was crucial. “It made me appreciate UT more — that the University cared enough to pay for us to be there for a week,” said Adas. As a student, Adas spent seven days in Bay St. Louis, MS, helping rebuild a family home nearly four years after Hurricane Katrina. “The
experience was very humbling,” she said. “There were homes where all that was left were the front stairs that led to nothing. New Orleans got all the attention, but here was this place that had been devastated and nobody was talking about it.” Each trip is designed around a specific social issue. Once the group has been chosen, the students meet several times before the trip to learn more about the issue and how it applies to the place they are going. They do activities to get to know each
other better and even participate in a pre-service day. “We had several months before we left to get to know each other,” said Michael Gilmer, director of student conduct and orientation, who served as adviser on the May 2011 trip to the Rainsong Animal Sanctuary in Caybua, Costa Rica. “It helped us to find the common threads between us and focus on what we were trying to do.” In Costa Rica, the group stayed in houses among the local people.

“These experiences always bring me back to who I am and my passion for service.” —heather ptak ’12 ary, laboring to clear paths and helping with the rehabilitation of wildlife. Gilmer said that though they were in a tropical paradise, as the week went on, the focus became less on the fun things to do — the group visited a nearby volcano — and more on what they were there for. “We learned a lot about the wildlife, the black market and trade,” he says. “Everything we did was about experiencing the culture and gaining a better understanding of the issue.” Tim Harding, associate dean of career development and engagement, was the other staff member on the Thailand trip. “It’s not just about going and doing service,” he said. “There is a lot of processing that goes on.” On the Thailand trip, the UT students hosted weekend excursions – rare opportunities for the orphans. They swam in a waterfall in a Thai national park, visited the Tsunami Memorial, witnessed National Geographic-type natural beauty, kayaked and took bamboo rafts to see a 250-million-year-old cave and rode elephants, many for the first time. The money UT students spent for the elephant ride was donated back to those in need in the village by the local excursion operator. The experience germinated discussion by the UT students as to the benefit the financial impact the group was making on the village contrasted by the ethical question of using the elephants for tourist rides. Harding was encouraged by the internal conflict the students experienced
that resulted in engaging, studentgenerated conversations. “How can you have that in the classroom without them experiencing it firsthand?” he said. Heather’s sister, Chelsey Ptak ’15, a criminology major and alternative breaks coordinator, said Thailand opened her eyes to a different way of life.
“Throughout the week there, I became fascinated with the culture and the Thai people,” she said. “Experiences like these change your perspectives, and I tend to come back home with a larger sense of confidence, and a greater desire to expand my volunteerism.” And that is exactly what these trips are designed to do, according
Creating Leaders and Active Citizens There are more than 180 clubs, student organizations and teams at UT, many of which sponsor service projects. Some of them include UT’s fraternities and sororities, UT athletics teams, Circle K International, Spartans in Service, Relay for Life, Beta Beta Beta and the Environmental Protection Coalition. For more information about campus service organizations, go to www.ut.edu/civic/serviceorgs. 14 UTjournal fall 2012

to Megan Frisque, UT’s director of community engagement. “We’re trying to create global citizens,” she said. “We’re introducing social issues that may not have an impact on them here at home, but that are nonetheless important, and they should be more aware of them.” Heather Ptak agrees. “From my point of view, it is awesome to see how students grow and really get into the issue,” she said. “We encourage participants not to let it end with the trip, but to try to find a way to incorporate it back into their life,” by doing things like starting to recycle after the Key West clean up, she suggested, or implementing a piece of Thai culture into students’ everyday life. According to Break Away, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports the development of quality
alternative break programs, that is the whole point of these programs: to inspire lifelong active citizenship. Break Away has a network of more than 100 chapter schools, including UT. Each summer, UT sends its alternative breaks student coordinators to Break Away’s Site Leader Retreat, which trains students on how to create a quality alternative break. In addition to necessary skills like facilitation, conflict resolution and group building, students learn the “Eight Components of a Quality Alternative Break,” including strong direct service, orientation, education, training, reflection, reorientation, diversity, and being alcohol and drug free. “Break Away is a great networking tool. You build a network with other students at other universities and learn from their experiences,” said Heather Ptak, going on to explain how Break Away has a database of places other institutions have gone. “The orphanage we were at in Thailand, they weren’t used to having such a large group, so now we can add them to the database with information about how we dealt
with that, which will help the next group that goes.” Heather Ptak, who has participated in many of the alternative breaks trips since 2009, said her experience in Thailand was one of her most memorable. “They call Thailand the land of smiles and it’s true, you wake up with a sense of peacefulness and calm around you,” she said. “These experiences through alternative breaks always bring me back to who I am and my passion for service.” “It sort of summed up the entire experience,” said Caitlyn Guthrie ’12, who graduated this May with degrees in English and government and world affairs, of blowing bubbles with the children one carefree evening at the orphanage. “The beautiful green mountains, the lush yard, the sunset and a truly beautiful moment when random people’s lives crossed paths and found common ground in something simple and happy. It was really a reminder of how wonderful it is to learn from children, who you normally wouldn’t view as teachers.” UT UTjournal fall 2012 15
Faculty who are also alumni talk about their time as students— and why they came back to teach at their alma mater.

Each fall, alumni from across the globe return to The University of Tampa to celebrate homecoming. They reminisce about their time as students and learn about what is new and exciting on campus. For a few alumni, however, the journey to these festivities is a short one — right outside their office. UT boasts a small group of alumni who have returned years after their time as undergraduates to teach at their alma mater. For these select few, every day is like homecoming.

King, at his home art studio, said it has been rewarding to provide the same nurturing he experienced as an undergraduate.
“I am surrounded by brilliant, creative people. There is a real sense of community.” —andrew mcalister ’87 Jack King ’70
When Jack King ’70 was a student at UT in the late 1960s, men’s hair could not touch the back of their collar, jeans could not be worn in Plant Hall and the rule that women had to wear a dress in the dining hall had just been lifted. A St. Petersburg native, King was the first in his family to go to college and earned an associate degree at St. Petersburg Junior College (now St. Petersburg College) before enrolling at UT. When deciding where to continue his education, he describes driving down Kennedy Boulevard and seeing the minarets. He pulled in, figured out where the art department was (behind the library at the time) and walked in. “Professor Harold Nosti popped his head out and asked if I needed help,” said King. “He showed me around the department and, eventually, walked me down to admissions to find out how to apply.” King said this type of nurturing relationship with professors is what he enjoyed most during his time at the University. “I liked having that intimacy with my professors,” said King. “Being able to sit with them in their office and talk. My professors — Nosti, Joe TestaSecca and Lew Harris — were always challenging me and helped me become a better thinker.” King graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1970 and went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Georgia. He taught for nearly two decades at Augusta College in Georgia, earning tenure. In 1990, after the kids were grown, he accepted a position at Broward Community College, overseeing the ceramics program and the campus art gallery. In 1992, he got a call about an opening at UT. Though he loved his position at BCC, he missed that one-on-one time with students as an adviser and soon found himself back 18 UTjournal fall 2012
on UT’s campus. He worked for several years in the Baccalaureate Experience program and taught Gateways and art courses, providing the same nurturing he experienced as an undergraduate. “I got to know every student in every class,” said King. “It has been a truly rewarding experience.” andrew mcalister ’87
For Andrew McAlister ’87, UT has always been a part of his life. “My dad (James McAlister ’54) is also an alumnus and both of my parents have taught courses at UT,” said McAlister. He grew up in the nearby neighborhood of Seminole Heights and attended Hillsborough High School. When deciding where to go for college, McAlister said he had no desire to go away to a big state school so thought he would try UT for “a couple of years.” He graduated in 1987 with a Bachelor of Arts. “The department had just gotten started when I was here and was called telecommunications,” he explained. “The field was so new. I’m told we used to get calls from people trying to reach the cable company.” During his time as a student, McAlister notes John Giancola and JoAnn Valenti as his “intellectual parents.” Though he decided not to major in English — he said he didn’t have the patience for all the reading — he recalls fondly hearing American novelist Peter Matthiessen, playwright and nonfiction writer Edward Albee and poet Philip Levine speak on campus. “The programming was excellent,” he said. After graduating, McAlister went on to earn his master’s and doctoral degrees at Emory University in Atlanta. McAlister taught as an adjunct instructor in several places before he and his wife decided to move back to Tampa to be closer to family. His wife had a job lined up, but he came back cold and started sending out CVs.
McAlister, in Falk Theatre, said he loves the intellectual freedom and sense of community at UT.
“I love teaching, taking students out into the field. There are days when I can’t believe I get paid to do this.”—lori (benson) mcrae ’95 “I got a call from Greg Bachmann asking if I could cover an American cinema course on very short notice. I told him ‘absolutely,’” said McAlister. He soon landed a tenure track position and was granted tenure this past spring. “When I came back it was nice to see that professors I thought were real keepers were still here,” he said. “I can’t think of them as ‘peers,’ though. I can’t think of Dr. Schenck as ‘Mary Jane.’” He said she teases him about this, calling him Dr. McAlister when he calls her Dr. Schenck. It is this sense of community that McAlister says he most appreciates. When asked what he likes best about his job, he says, “There’s an aspect of what’s not to love? I am surrounded by brilliant, creative people. There is a real sense of community within this department and UT is small enough that you can easily form relationships with faculty in other departments. “Basically, what I’m paid to do is go into a classroom and talk about ideas,” he said. “I love the intellectual freedom.” Lori (Benson) McRae ’95
Though she was raised in Kentucky, Lori (Benson) McRae ’95 knew from frequent family trips to Florida and the Caribbean as a kid that she wanted to study marine biology. “UT was my first choice,” she said. “At the time there weren’t a lot of other undergraduate programs in marine biology. And I liked that it was small. I was blown away by almost every teacher.” McRae lived on campus in Smiley, Delo and Res Com. Her study partner during those years (and eventual roommate), Jen Wortham ’95, also returned to UT and is an associate professor of Health Sciences and Human Performance. After taking her first biology class with Stan Rice, professor of biology, McRae ended up working with Rice on 20 UTjournal fall 2012
various research projects for three years. She said he played an instrumental role in pushing her on to graduate school. McRae continued her studies at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA, going straight for her doctorate. “Jumping right into a doctoral program was really rough, but I realized pretty early on that I loved teaching and that I’d need a Ph.D. to do that at the college level,” she said. While at LSU, McRae split her time between Baton Rouge and Hilo, HI, studying fish ecology, genetics and morphology. In Hawaii, she began working with Mark McRae from the state’s Division of Aquatic Resources, whom she would eventually marry (Mark McRae is now an assistant professor of biology at UT.) When she was nearing completion of her doctorate, her thoughts turned back to UT. She started out as an adjunct, but was soon offered a tenure track position and was awarded tenure in 2008. “It was kind of like coming home,” she said. “The organic chemistry lab had the same smell.” As far as working with her former professors, McRae said she still looks up to and models her teaching after the professors she had at UT. According to McRae, this is one of the perks of having been a UT student. She understands what the student experience is like. “Some of the professors teach their courses in the same way that they taught them to me,” she said. “So I’m able to talk to my students about that.” For McRae, this interaction is the best part of the job. “I love teaching, taking students out into the field. There are days when I can’t believe I get paid to do this.” UT Turn the page for a list of other faculty who hold an undergraduate degree from UT. >>

When Lyonelle A. De Veaux ’98 was shot in the line of duty, she says her training and her faith are what helped her to survive.
grace Under fire By brian hudgins photographs by bob croslin
When three bullets ripped into Lyonelle A. De Veaux ’98, a wave of disbelief washed over her … then her training took over. ¶ De Veaux, a deputy with the Hillsborough County Sheriff ’s Office (HCSO), was shot while responding to a domestic disturbance call on Sept. 30, 2011.

he conflict was between a young woman and her boyfriend. While putting the woman in back of her patrol vehicle to speak with her, De Veaux was confronted by the boyfriend. De Veaux asked him if they could talk. Instead, he pulled a firearm from beneath his shirt and fired upon her before running back to his apartment. Although she was wounded, she stuck to a plan. “My thoughts were disbelief, but my body was moving,” she says. “I was trying to stay alert about where I was and where the shooter was in relation to me.” Even though the six-year veteran of HCSO was in the middle of a deadly situation, her mind continued to record details. “I was aware how many times I had been hit,” De Veaux says. “He shot twice before I was hit. I had a burning sensation in my shoulder. I took a step back to run. Then I had a burning sensation in my thigh and then my calf. I called on the radio and said I had been shot at least four times.” While she never had any thoughts that she would die, she was concerned about how much blood she was losing and that she was sweating a lot. “After the incident, while waiting for help, I began to pray and just repeated over and over, ‘Oh God, help me. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,’” she says. De Veaux manages to chuckle about some moments of the ordeal — like one of her partners trying to cut off her pants. To stop that, she told EMS responders where she was hit. Her partner with HCSO, Miguel Galarza, had been shot almost two years to the day before she was. “I learned a lot from my partner’s shooting,” De Veaux says. “I didn’t want a police officer to show up at my mom’s door. I told her if anything ever happened to me and I could call her, I would.” She called her mom from the ambulance. Once she cleared the hurdle of survival, she began to miss her partners

terribly. “I already had an idea when I would get back to work,” she says. “But it was hurting me not to see my partners on a regular basis, so I went to a roll call, and I walked in with cupcakes.” Rounds of physical therapy, which included a lot of walking to stretch her muscles back out and a lot of lifting for her shoulder, helped propel De Veaux toward that goal of going back to work. She returned to active duty on Nov. 30, 2011, about eight weeks after the shooting. As De Veaux took another step forward, she was thankful for a few things that had happened during those eight weeks. She had the opportunity to meet and get support from her peers in both Florida and from farther away. “I talked to different doctors that specialize in shootings,” De Veaux says. “I received get-well cards from Arizona and Connecticut. I had a lot of support from the law enforcement community, and it was overwhelming.” “She was ambushed,” says David Gee ’90, Hillsborough County sheriff and fellow UT alumnus. “But Lyonelle’s training kicked in, and I think that helped her survive. Her positive attitude throughout her recovery has been a testament to her fortitude. We are proud of her.” The alleged shooter is being held while he awaits trial. A Tampa native, De Veaux attended UT as a commuter student in the late ’90s. “Coming here was a really cool experience. We graduated right out there and people sat around the fountain,” she says, pointing to the East Verandah of Plant Hall. “UT has grown a lot since I was here. We were known for having a large amount of international students. We had folks from all walks of life. I thought it was neat how they meshed this campus. I am a proud Spartan.” De Veaux has witnessed law enforcement and the court system
from many angles. Before she became a deputy, she was a family services counselor for the Department of Children and Families (now Hillsborough Kids Inc.). Getting involved in the community is something that started early. “My father (the late Maurice De Veaux) was a minister,” she says. “My sister and I would always be volunteered for things at the church … My dad was always involved in some type of local government activity. He and my mom (Martha) gave me a sense to respect government. You don’t have to agree, but respect it. I realized how fortunate I was to have that upbringing. I have great parents.” One day after his passing, De Veaux tucked an index card her father had written a prayer on into her ballistic vest. “I wanted to laminate it and carry it in my pocket, but I was rushing and I did not really read what it said,” she says. After the shooting, she pulled out the card and on it was written, “Lord, you are my salvation. You are my defense.” “I was floored. I found out that the bullet that entered my shoulder is normally fatal, but in my case, it ricocheted off my rib and made a 90 degree turn towards my back where it lodged in the skin,” says De Veaux. “I believe that God intervened on my behalf. I am thankful that I am here.” As De Veaux embraces being back at work and routinely seeing the familiar streets and faces throughout the county, she has grabbed hold of a new lesson that her mind has recorded and remembers often. “Nothing is routine,” she says. “There is no such thing as a routine traffic stop or a routine domestic call. I had another 911 call before the shooting. It was a similar call to the shooting. It happened and that was it. The shooting happened in four minutes, and I was in the hospital in 20 minutes. The community has been good to me.” UT
De Veaux, pictured here at the apartment complex where she was shot, says she is glad to be back at work.

Carl Cowden III ’78 Recreating an Icon Earlier this year, Tampa residents were alarmed to see a downtown icon disappear. The postcard-inspired mural at 1102 N. Florida Ave. had for years provided a photo op for tourists to remember their Florida vacation and a beautiful piece of artwork for residents to enjoy. Thankfully, the mural’s absence — it was removed to repair the wall beneath —was only temporary. Carl Cowden III ’78, who painted the original in 2003, was commissioned to re-do the famous mural in time for the Republican National Convention at the end of August. “These big public projects always seem to come in the middle of the summer heat, but I’m so thankful for such a rewarding job,” said Cowden. When asked where he painted his first mural, Cowden smiled and said, “On the wall in my bedroom.” The son of Dorothy Cowden ’53, who oversees UT’s Scarfone/Hartley Gallery, Cowden said as early as kindergarten he began to realize that art came naturally to him. Photo by jessica leigh
Some of his first jobs after college were painting murals around Tampa. “I did a faux-house mural on a building at the end of North Boulevard —windows and a door and neighborhood kids helped paint flowers,” said Cowden. His experience as a working artist is varied. Cowden has designed logos and signage, restored WPA murals for the U.S. Postal Service, illustrated posters for Ruth Eckerd Hall children’s plays and worked as master printer for his mother’s screen printing business, Berghoff-Cowden Editions. For the last 11 years, Cowden has been master printer for STUDIO-f, UT’s visiting artist program, as well as gallery preparator for the Scarfone/Hartley Gallery. Cowden can often be found in the studio creating art just for the pleasure of it. His drawings, paintings and prints tend toward mythic imagery — skeletons, monkeys, porcupines, elephants. “I am always excited to see how this imagery is still relevant.” UTjournal fall 2012 29

Bethany Kreider ’10 Real Cultural Exchanges
Jill Rymut ’08 and David Andrade ’07
When Bethany Kreider ’10 set off for Indonesia to teach English as a Fulbright Scholar, she never expected to be teaching her students to do the chicken dance as well. “One of my funniest memories is when my students taught me a traditional Dayak dance,” she says. “Then they asked me what the traditional American dance is. I tried to think of one, but couldn’t really come up with anything, which is how I ended up doing the chicken dance with 40 Indonesian students and their teacher.” Kreider was in Samarinda, the capital of the Indonesian province of East Kalimantan, from August 2011 to May 2012 as one of 40 scholars chosen from across the U.S. for an English Teaching Assistantship (ETA). The program places U.S. students as English teaching assistants in schools overseas to improve foreign students’ English and knowledge of the U.S. In turn, ETAs increase their knowledge of the host country. “Indonesia is an up-and-coming country, and the English language is a very important part 34 UTjournal fall 2012
of that process,” says Kreider. “I hope through my teaching and actions, I showed my students a glimpse of the world outside their city and island and expanded their thinking.” Though Kreider went to Indonesia knowing no one, she says she was accepted into the community without question. Living on her own in housing provided by the program, she describes how her neighbors would stop by to bring her dinner, a teacher from school would drive her to work and complete strangers would offer help. “It was this basic kindness that allowed for real relationships and cultural exchange to occur,” she says. Kreider was one of only five ETAs invited to return for another year. She will be in a different city, Kendari, the capital of the Indonesian province of southeast Sulawesi. “I’m excited to go back,” says Kreider. “I learned just as much as I taught. I now know how to eat with my hands, how to get a snake out of my house, and most importantly, that a community can become your family.” Photo courtesy of bethany kreider ’10

Q: What message do you give to students considering UT? A: Just because we’re a private university doesn’t always mean we cost more than other colleges. UT has a lot of scholarship support to offer. You’ve got to do your homework and visit several campuses. So many prospective students find that UT is the right fit for them because we have so much to offer. Q: Why do you support UT? A: I want to help current students have
the same, if not better, opportunities than I had. I think it is so important for students to take advantage of all the ways to get involved. It made such a difference in my life. I feel great to help pass that along. UTjournal fall 2012 37

Putting Others First There are those rare individuals in this world who believe that serving others is more important than serving themselves. People who see the potential in others no matter what their station in life. Xavier Francis Cannella Sr. ’41 was one of those individuals. According to his family, friends and the hundreds of children he mentored as a principal at various elementary schools in Tampa, he enriched the lives of everyone with whom he came into contact. His motto: “Do the right thing.” His sons, Michael Cannella ’73 M.A. ’75 and Xavier Cannella Jr. ’78, said their father always did the “right thing” for his family, his community and his students. “My father taught us that you don’t do something for your own benefit, you do it because it’s the right thing,” said Michael Cannella, a retired Hillsborough County educator. “He 38 UTjournal fall 2012
had a positive influence on thousands of children during his career as an educator. He was a great role model.” Xavier Cannella Sr. was born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1919. His parents were Italian immigrants who taught him the value of education, hard work and service to others. He first came to Tampa in 1937. He fell in love with both the city and UT, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in 1941. After serving his country as a sergeant in the U.S. Army during World War II, he went on to earn a master’s degree from Columbia University in 1946. He continued with post-graduate work at Harvard University and received his professional diploma from Columbia University in 1955. Cannella had returned to Tampa to teach social studies and history, and married Phyllis Marie Puleo, a violinist with the Tampa Philharmonic, in 1949. Ultimately, he became principal at
three Hillsborough County elementary schools, including Oak Park Elementary from 1962 until he retired in 1975. “Dad found being an educator very rewarding,” said Xavier Cannella Jr., a general and vascular surgeon at Florida Hospital, Tampa. “Though he had opportunities to teach at higher levels, he believed that what young children learn in their formative years stays with them forever. He spent most of his career with inner-city and rural kids in many of the toughest neighborhoods because he felt he could make a difference in their young lives.” From the hundreds of letters written by former students regarding their principal, one student wrote: “I was a student at Oak Park in the 1960s. We were poor kids, but Mr. Cannella made us feel valuable. He treated all of us with dignity and respect. He knew our lives were different, that our parents struggled, and we needed extra help.” Another student’s words: “Mr. Cannella gave me breakfast when I didn’t have any. He made certain that no student went without shoes. He even bought shoes with his own money.” Xavier Cannella died in 1984. Xavier F. Cannella Elementary School was dedicated in 1993 to a man described as a great humanitarian and educator. “My brother and I wanted to honor our father in a way that would reflect his life’s focus,” said Xavier Cannella Jr. “Education was always a priority, and UT played an integral part in his life,” said Michael Cannella. “My brother and I decided to create an endowment for UT students seeking a career in education in our dad’s memory. He impacted the lives of so many people in such a positive way.” Need more information about Planned Giving? Contact Cindy L.

The Sherman Legacy The University recently received a bequest from the late John H. Sherman Jr. ’40 and his wife, Marie, of Lynchburg, VA. What makes this bequest especially notable is that Sherman was the son of the second president of UT, John H. Sherman Sr., who served from 1937 to 1940. The University was just four John H. Sherman Sr. years old when John Sherman Sr. became president. The nation was still struggling through the Great Depression, which made his tenure at UT challenging. His primary
goal was gaining accreditation, and John Sherman Sr. laid much of the groundwork for the University to do so under President Ellwood Nance in 1951. His son, who attended UT during his father’s time as president, would go on to apply his UT degree in mathematics and chemistry. After serving in World War II, John Sherman Jr. earned a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Lehigh University and began a long career with GE specializing in quartz crystal resonators. The University thanks a third generation of the Sherman family, Mary Sherman and Ida Cole, for sharing memories of their father and helping make this bequest possible.
Editor’s Note We heard from several readers regarding the “Act of Valor” story in our last issue. The award is the Medal of Honor, not the Congressional Medal of Honor. There was also some concern over the word “given” that is used in several places in the story. Individuals are presented or awarded the Medal of Honor, not given it. Also, in the “Gifts In Honor and In Memoriam” section of the issue, we misspelled Dorothy Jeffery’s name. A gift was made in memoriam of Jeffery by The Chiselers Inc.
Longtime Trustee Dies

William A. “Bill” Krusen Sr., who served on the Board of Trustees for 42 years, died on April 19, 2012. He was 91. Most recently chairman of General Group Holdings Inc., Krusen founded the construction company in the late 1940s and soon branched out to invest in additional businesses in Florida. Among his many philanthropic endeavors, Krusen served as a trustee and chairman at Tampa Preparatory School, WEDU and the American Red Cross’ Tampa chapter. At UT, Krusen established two endowments and also helped UT students receive scholarships through the Tony Jannus Society. Krusen was a longtime member of the Minaret Society, as well as the Frederick Spaulding Society, the Board of Fellows, the Excellence Fund and various Board of Trustees committees.

The Bush-era tax cuts are set to expire Dec. 31. Should Congress choose to do nothing, taxes will default to the higher rates of a decade ago. This means income taxes will increase by three to five percent, taxes on dividends and capital gains will be higher, and estate, gift and other taxes will rise. On the other hand, one of the parties might get their legislation through. Even the most seasoned congressional experts have no idea what is going to happen. Wherever you stand politically on the issue, you’ll need to consider how
the potential changes will affect your individual finances. Now is the time to begin planning for changes. With so much at stake, this is not a do-ityourself project. You’ll want to consult with an expert who can review your financial and retirement plans. A few things to consider: n If you are on a fixed income and rely on dividends for retirement, you may want to review your strategy with a financial advisor. A five percent tax increase means a five percent pay cut for your retirement. n If income taxes rise, taking more from your IRA this year or accelerating income from a small business might make sense. An accountant can help you with the calculations to make a good decision.
No Excuses! You Need a Will.
n Higher capital gains taxes will affect you if your investment strategy involves frequent buying and selling of stocks. Check with your broker to see if a portfolio adjustment might be in order for next year. n Many smaller estates might be subject to the estate tax. Check with your attorney about your family’s situation. n Philanthropists with high incomes may want to make their charitable gifts this year. One of the proposals on the table would phase out itemized deductions above a certain income. n For UT supporters, now is also the time to review your giving plan for this year and next. There may be some real advantages to making gifts to UT before the end of the year if taxes indeed increase in 2013.

You provide written instructions when you leave your home or children in someone else’s care for a week, right? A will is the same idea — but way more important. Having a will ensures your property and money goes to the people and organizations of your choosing, names a guardian to care for dependents and describes your exact intentions when it comes to former spouses, stepchildren, investment property and other issues.

building on Our Success A Message from President Ronald L. Vaughn
It’s easy to illustrate UT’s progress in terms of construction and increasing enrollment. This year we’re set to mark a 16th year of record enrollment, and the three major construction projects currently underway — Residence Hall 7, the Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex and the Martinez Athletics Center renovation and expansion — probably sets some sort of record as well. Each brick laid, foundation poured, cable run and tree planted is visible proof that UT is solid. What’s not so easy to illustrate is the work and sacrifice of so many people who construct new buildings, recruit new faces and create necessary academic, athletic and cocurricular programs on campus. The amount of work that goes into providing a top-notch educational environment is inspiring. UT has a history of achievement, and we will continue to improve our operations to ensure our students receive the best education possible, and that the University’s legacy will endure. One of the high points this year was when we were 42 UTjournal Fall 2011
notified by the Princeton Review that we would be included as one of the best colleges in the United States. This list is a very prestigious one, and the recognition is long overdue. It is a recognition that validates the progress we’ve made academically and structurally. Also, it will make us even more appealing for prospective students who seek to be educated at only the top universities, as well as for prospective faculty and staff who want to be associated with a renowned institution. Each year we take steps toward our mission of improving students’ ability to learn and succeed as productive citizens. We look at how to welcome the most deserving students, how to make campus more comfortable for current students and attractive to future students, how to streamline processes and how to best invest in our future. This year was no different. We have been successful in finding ways to break enrollment records and continue to improve the campus, all while staying true to our mission of transforming students.

academic affairs Each year, UT further secures its place as a model institution that provides an excellent education. As our enrollment has climbed, we have worked hard to maintain a low average class size and a low student-to-faculty ratio. This has been achieved by hiring professors who are experts in their disciplines, who are excellent teachers and who engage in cutting-edge research. The 2011-2012 full-time faculty stood at approximately 275 members, with 31 new members. This year we look to hire nearly 40 new faculty members, to replace retiring professors, to support our growth and to simply add expertise to our academic departments. You’ll read on page 16 how more than a dozen of our full-time faculty received their bachelor’s degree at UT. The UT experience is so strong that some of our top scholars choose to come back here to teach as professors. Interestingly, UT is fulfilling the national trend towards health-related and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields. The number of un44 UTjournal Fall 2012
dergraduates with a declared major in the College of Natural and Health Sciences increased by 35 percent from the previous year. This has, of course, prompted more faculty hiring, new construction and renovations in various labs, classrooms and offices around campus. Last summer, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools reviewed our campus internationalization/ global education, and said that UT is continuing its “transformation” in these areas. UT sent almost 500 undergraduate and graduate students abroad this year, nearly a 14 percent increase from last year. These students studied in more than 34 locations around the
globe, including a pilot sixweek internship program for four students in London. A UT student was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for the second year in a row, this time to study in Spain. Yet another student received a grant from the Department of State to travel to Tunisia to study Arabic (see page 3). This year we created an Office of Sponsored Programs, which assisted in eight grant awards, for a total of
$665,527. The UT MFA in Creative Writing program, which was established last year, initiated its speaker series, “Lectores.” The series featured prominent authors, such as bestselling fiction writer Michael Connelly, and, much like the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values Concert Series, attracted large, appreciative audiences. In an annual assessment conducted by the Florida Department of Education of teachers’ success in improving student learning, graduates from UT were ranked No. 1 in the state compared to all other public and private institutions that prepare teachers. Speaking of rankings, U.S. News & World Report added UT’s part-time MBA program to its best business programs ranking. Our faculty maintains its focus on teaching, yet faculty still publish hundreds of research articles and make numerous presentations around the globe each year. Some of these accomplishments include: ■■ Sykes College of Business —Faculty published 109 publications, and completed 67 presentations. ■■ College of Arts and Letters—Faculty accounted for three books, two edited volumes, two book chap-

ters, two CD recordings on major labels, 11 refereed journal articles, nine creative works (poems, performances, etc.), 39 juried or curated exhibitions, 35 concerts, 26 main stage productions on campus and 27 conference papers. ■■ College of Natural and Health Sciences—57 faculty publications appeared in refereed venues, and 60 presentations and posters were presented at regional, national and international conferences. ■■ College of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Education—Faculty achieved 45 peer-reviewed articles, three published books, 34 presentations at national/ international conferences and three faculty serving as journal editors.
When Residence Hall 7 is completed in August 2013, it will be our biggest residence hall. But it will also be our most interactive. The hall has been uniquely designed to allow for student interaction and to build students’ sense of community. The top floor will resemble the ninth floor of the Vaughn Center — except that it will be specifically for student programming. We know that students who are more comfortable in their living arrangements and extracurricular activities do better academically, and this new residence hall certainly follows that model. It’s hard to talk about student affairs at UT without talking about our robust leadership programs. Four new leadership programs were launched this year: The Leadership Exchange, an intensive 15-week program that introduced UT students to the principles and challenges of leading change on a shared social issue. Leadership and Cooking, a new excursion program, facilitated in collaboration with Sodexo, that introduces students to the communication strategy outlined in the book Clear Leadership. A Student Development Series, in collaboration with the Community Engagement Team, a leadership and professional development program that focuses on wellness and balance, leadership and personal development, and occupational development. Relevant, a retreat focused on introducing fraternity and sorority members to UT’s leadership philosophy and community values. Eight UT alumni facilitated components of the program.

As found on page 10, the PEACE Alternative Breaks program continues to be popular amongst students, and this year students traveled to Asia for the first time to volunteer at a local orphanage and organic farm in Thailand. The opening of the Dickey Health and Wellness Center proved very supportive to students. Health care appointments increased 24 percent this academic year, and the Wellness Center provided more than 180 programs and events focusing on all areas of wellness. The McNiff Fitness Center also recorded terrific numbers, averaging 602 visits per day. The Wellness Center staff also took the lead in

operations While Plant Hall may be the historic heart and soul of the UT campus, the new construction that surrounds it has made the UT campus one of the most appealing and visually interesting in the United States.

students in specific majors (e.g., science, education, mathematics, technology). We continue to focus on giving students an extra edge when they enter the workforce after graduation. As I mentioned earlier, student interest in the STEM areas increased. As such, the Office of Career Services has focused on development of employer partnerships and programming in the STEM areas. Career services hosted a seminar, “What it is Really Like to Work for an Entrepreneurial Technology Company,” that involved more than 75 students and more than 40 technology community partners. Career services also hosted its first Internship Week, with more than 240 students participating in the Internship Prep Workshop and Webinars. 46 UTjournal Fall 2012
Currently, the west side of campus—west of North Boulevard—is being revitalized. We demolished five buildings along Kennedy Boulevard to make way for the Naimoli Family Athletic and Intramural Complex, which is set for completion in early 2013. The Martinez Athletics Center, which will be re-dedicated on Sept. 27, has undergone a dramatic transformation, making it more appealing for our student athletes. Adjacent to one corner of the center is the Health Sciences and Human Performance building, which was completed last spring. Adjacent to the other corner is the Athletics and ROTC building, which will be dedicated this spring. And, just next to Martinez, we constructed a chiller plant that will reap financial and environmental rewards for years to come. Finally, as I previously mentioned, we broke ground on Residence Hall 7, which will be the seventh new residence hall constructed in less than 15 years.
One detail that only the most discerning alumni might notice is that we removed many of our overhead utilities. This may seem inconsequential, but these subtle details help to enhance our stunningly beautiful campus. When prospective students cannot visit the UT campus, they rely on the UT website for their virtual tour. The website was totally redesigned last year, and a new 360-degree tour was added just last fall. You should check it out if you haven’t already at www. ut.edu/utvirtualtour.

The 2011-2012 enrollment year is best characterized by a moderate increase in UT’s volume across the admissions spectrum. This increase cascaded across most aspects of admissions, including events, mailings, visitors, requests for UT admission and waitlist (more than 1,700).
The system provides for unprecedented communication capabilities in the event of an emergency. We’re currently upgrading all classrooms to include wireless access with enough

bandwidth to support classroom capacity. And, four residence halls saw expanded wireless capabilities for improved coverage and reliability, thus enhancing the more than 450 campus wireless sites. Of course, in order to support these operations, we must have a robust development and fundrais-
ing program. One highlight this year was when a donor funded a scanning electron microscope that will greatly enhance our biology, zoology and forensic science programs. The Honor Roll of Donors on page 49 recognizes the many people who support the University financially. The total received for all gifts this year was $13.5 million. This year’s Annual Fund saw more donors than the previous year, and total Annual Fund giving was approximately $2.3 million. If you’re reading this, you likely were called by a student as part of our successful phonathon program. If you supported UT this year, I once again sincerely thank you.
This fall UT set another record enrollment of 6,900, and welcomed more than 2,400 new freshmen, transfer and graduate students. More than 140,000 student inquiries were received this year from prospective students. In fact, on Nov. 11, 2011, we received 957 applications alone—a record. While UT continues to set enrollment records, we are also making serious inroads in increasing our selectivity. This year, 46 percent of freshmen applicants were admitted, as opposed to 51 percent in 2011 and 59 percent in 2010. This compares to much higher applicant admission percentages, in the 70 and

athletics UT athletics continues to be a wildly successful program. Not only are UT’s 550 athletes successful on the field, but they are successful in the classroom and active in the community. With 19 men’s and women’s teams, plus men’s and women’s cheerleading, the Spartans have won 12 NCAA II national championships and have secured 65 Sunshine State Conference (SSC) titles in the past two decades. This year the Spartans fared well. We brought home eight conference championships, six coaches were recognized as coaches of the year and nine teams played in the postseason. The volleyball team nearly tied its record of consecutive wins when it
started its season 24-0. In its inaugural year, the men’s lacrosse team brought home a conference championship. Women’s lacrosse was also announced last spring, and intercollegiate play will begin in Fall 2013. The women’s cross

The Spartans have become well-known in the community as well. Student athletes set a record for community service hours, logging more than 5,000 for
the year. While doing so, the teams raised more than $5,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and for Just Elementary School.

From June 14–23, the inaugural class of the UT MFA in Creative Writing program attended its second 10-day working residency on campus. During their visit, students visited the UT Book Arts Studio to learn more about the evolution of printing. Here, MFA student Susan Dickerson uses antique press equipment in the studio to print a broadside.
