The Publication for The University of Tampa
A Storied Past and an Exciting Future Eighty years ago, access to college for Tampa Bay’s young people was a nearly impossible dream. But thanks to Tampa’s visionary leaders, The University of Tampa was born. Eight decades later we can say UT transformed the city of Tampa as well as the tens of thousands of students who have passed through its halls. UT itself has been transformed also. From one iconic building that UT inhabited in its early years, campus is now blessed with 50 buildings. From 12 faculty members in 1931 to 460 today. From a fledgling athletic program to one that now owns 12 national titles. From 67 students from one state and one country, to 6,700 from 50 states and 114 countries. Our evolution as an institution has been amazing, and our future is equally as exciting. Much of UT’s transformation is due to the committed members of the UT community, including alumni, faculty, staff, parents, donors, trustees and friends. Last spring UT grieved the loss of Martha Ferman, who was a dedicated supporter of UT for more than 50 years — more than half of UT’s existence. She and her late husband, James L. Ferman, who had served on UT’s Board of Trustees, have been annual UT donors since 1948 — never missing a year — and were quick to help the University in any capacity. In fact, the Ferman family had even provided their home to serve as the University President’s home for 10 years. It is relationships like these — at every level — that mean so much to the University. Those donors who make it a point to give every year — just like the Fermans — are critical to our success at changing lives. The donor honor roll that begins on page 41 acknowledges these relationships and their role in transforming UT and its students. Once again, the outpouring of support for our University was outstanding. This year we restructured our annual fund phonathon, staffing the phones with students. The results were dramatic. If you received a call, I hope you enjoyed speaking with one of our outstanding students. Through your gifts — no matter how big or small — you play a vital role in the life of the University. As a reader of the Journal, you know how the student experience at UT is vital, exciting and life changing. In recognizing our 80th year, this annual report issue gives me an especially good reason to look at the past while also looking toward the future. As always, I welcome your feedback and ideas about the path of the University. 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 new Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values, 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 have transformed The University of Tampa. Ronald L. Vaughn, Ph.D. President

Happenings on campus and in the community
The Martinez Sports Center project will be completed in two phases.
Sports Center to Expand Renovated Martinez Sports Center will support growing programs UT has begun a two-phase expansion and renovation project of the Martinez Sports Center that will add or renovate 57,000 square feet into multi-use classrooms, labs, faculty offices and athletics space. The first phase of the two-phase project will see a second floor added to the northeast corner of the current building, which faces North Boulevard. A new building façade will integrate the building with the rest of campus. The first phase will provide space primarily for the Department of Health Services and Human Performance, and will consist of eight classrooms, six labs and 19 faculty offices. It is estimated that 35 percent of entering freshmen declare majors within the College
of Natural Health and Sciences. UT President Ronald L. Vaughn said the project will add much-needed academic space to campus while also providing a renovation to the Martinez Sports Center. Phase I is expected to be completed by early 2012. “We’re maximizing existing space on campus and enhancing UT’s strong presence in health sciences and human performance, which is of growing interest to our student population,” Vaughn said. The second phase includes the construction of a new, two-story building that will be attached to the southwest corner of the Martinez Sports Center, toward the women’s softball field. It will house facilities for athletics, ath-
letic training and ROTC. Phase II will be completed in the fall of 2012. Other expansion and renovation projects completed this past summer include: n A new microbiology lab with instrumentation was created in the new Cass Science Annex. n Current nursing facilities in Walker Hall were expanded and redesigned to include new labs, classroom and assessment spaces. Sophisticated new simulators and other equipment were added to support clinical learning and student skill development. n A new electron microscope research lab was created in the Plant Hall science wing to support faculty/ student research and learning.

“I can’t think of another campus in the country that has the combination of your dedication of an aspirational vision and a beautiful, powerful, physical building in which you are the proof that we are better together.” —eboo patel
UT at Forefront of White House Initiative The week the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships announced the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, UT launched its partnership with the Interfaith Youth Core with a talk by its founder, Eboo Patel. The Interfaith Youth Core is a model for the White House plan, which asks university presidents to commit to promoting interfaith cooperation and community service on their campuses. UT has begun a one-year commitment with the Interfaith Youth Core to build the framework for a sustainable interfaith leadership program. Patel’s dream is for interfaith leadership and literacy to be hallmarks
of a college education. He told the UT crowd on March 15, gathered in the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values, that he was energized to be in a place that was piloting the movement. “I can tell you that I can’t think of another campus in the country that has the combination of your dedication of an aspirational vision and a beautiful, powerful, physical building in which you are the proof that we are better together,” said Patel, who sits on the Advisory Council at the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. The University is working with the Interfaith Youth Core to enhance current interfaith programming and launch new initiatives for the fall.

Education Grads Top Teacher Ratings In a new study by the Florida Department of Education, new teachers who graduated from UT topped state rankings for teacher effectiveness. The data gauged FCAT performance in reading or math by students of new teachers who graduated from Florida institutions who were spending their first year teaching in Florida public schools. One hundred percent of the teachers with education degrees from UT saw at least half of their students improve on the FCAT, according to the study. The ranking topped other public and independent institutions that were included in the study, including the University of Florida, University of Miami and Florida State University. In other academic news, UT recently received accreditation for its applied sociology concentration from the Commission on the Accreditation of Programs in Applied and Clinical Sociology (CAPACS), and for its bachelor’s degree program in management information systems (MIS) by the Computing Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

Professor Finds Student Journalists Making Their Voices Heard in Iraq Research is for new book on cutting-edge global journalism practices Assistant Professor Dan Reimold spent the beginning part of this summer in Iraq with some of the people he likes most in this world – student journalists. Travelling to the Kurdish region with the help of a UT David Delo research grant, Reimold visited with student journalists at the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS). “I was there to observe and report upon a courageous group of student journalists at AUIS who founded Iraq’s first post-Saddam independent college newspaper, The AUIS Voice,” said Reimold, who spent two weeks in late May on the research trip and said he felt safe while travelling in the wartorn country. As the advisor for The Minaret, Reimold observes UT students every day as they figure out first-hand the power of the media. He’s also spent time in the Philippines and Singapore researching the craft and teaching. He writes for PBS MediaShift, maintains the College Media Matters blog (sponsored by the Associated Collegiate Press) and writes a twice-weekly column for USA Today College called “Campus Beat.” AUIS is an English-speaking, private university modeled after Western liberal arts schools. Located in the northern Kurdish region, the newspaper’s one-and-a-half year existence has been followed closely by Reimold, who explained that journalism tradition in

the region is opinionated and activist, backed by political agendas. He said they are still figuring out the intricacies of covering controversial issues, using sourcing and maintaining accuracy. The school does not offer a journalism major or any journalism classes, and the newspaper is run as a student organization. “The between-the-lines journalism is not something they can grasp yet,” said Reimold. “They are still working on defining what journalism is.” Reimold said the students are trying hard to keep up the momentum of the four-page paper, printing once every three weeks and distributing it on campus, at cafes and at hookah lounges around the city. They have seen the
power of their voices in the coverage of student protests over issues like the limitation of Facebook access on campus. “In their own way I’d label them journalism revolutionaries with the irony that they are doing the most traditional type of journalism — printed news,” Reimold said. “Without formal training, writing in a language that isn’t their native tongue and using the Voice as a classroom, it’s pretty impressive they’ve been able to raise issues and make some change.” Reimold’s research is part of his on-going interest in the student press and fodder for an upcoming book, his second, on the cutting-edge student journalism practices around the world.

Mounir Benzegala ‘10 at the Port of Tripoli, nearly a week before the revolt in Libya forced his return to the port to spend three harrowing days waiting for passage to Malta.
Leaving Libya Mounir Benzegala ’10 went to Libya in late January to play professional basketball, but after just a couple weeks, amid violent protests against the government, he feared for his life. “I had seen people from outside of my window shooting at each other,” Benzegala said. “I knew that it was dangerous right outside of my place, so I was definitely worried.” The 24-year-old from Columbus, OH, attended UT for three years after transferring from Edison Community College, and was a member of the basketball team during that time. 6 UTjournal fall 2011
Benzegala spoke highly of the Spartans and recalls the great camaraderie with his teammates. “It’s probably the one team that I felt like everybody was my family,” he said. “[It’s] one of the few teams that I played on that I can honestly say that everybody looked out for each other and treated each other like brothers.” Half Algerian and half AfricanAmerican, Benzegala is a dual citizen of America and Algeria. He spent time after his college career playing for the Algerian National Team, and was performing well on the court. Early this
year, however, he no longer felt safe playing in Algeria. “In January, actually, Algeria looked like it was gonna go the same way Egypt did, so I decided to take that opportunity to go play for Ittihad.” He went to the Ittihad Tripoli’s tryouts, and earned a spot on the roster. But he was unaware that his decision to play in Libya would be a dangerous one. Ittihad, which Benzegala said has Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Saif, for a general manager, only played four games in the span of two weeks before the Libyan Super League had to shut down operations. “The dilemma that the Libyan people had was that you can’t admit that there’s an issue, because if you do, you’re considered against the government,” Benzegala explained. “Nobody wanted to say ‘hey, there’s some issues going on. We can’t afford to play basketball right now, it’s not safe.’” However, once the protests further progressed, Benzegala’s agent contacted him, informing him the league would be temporarily canceled. Staying in Tripoli at a sports athletic compound which was connected to a government building, Benzegala and his fellow international club members were in the middle of what he described as a “civil war.” Other athletes living on the compound were quick to leave Libya. Benzegala explained that many of them were from nearby countries, making it easier for them to leave. “A lot of people left before we even talked to them,” Benzegala said. “We slept, woke up and people were gone.” Benzegala said there were 16,000 people at the airport in a rush to get out as Gaddafi was shutting down air strips. He recalled being battered by a group of young men in camouflage, who he assumes were from the mili-
tary, due to a misunderstanding. He did make his way in safely, but found no luck getting on board a plane; his Algerian passport, the one which was stamped and used to enter the country, was with his team. He only had his American passport, which was not stamped and perhaps made airport employees suspicious. “They kind of did like a catch-22 thing where they had me going from one desk to the other trying to figure it out. So they had me doing that for hours,” he explained. “In reality, they were just playing a game with me. They just stole my money and they were never planning on letting me get on the plane.” Benzegala went back to his room and contacted the United States Embassy. Later that same day, Benzegala received information about a boat leaving Libya the next morning. CNN (which had already been made aware of his situation through a friend with media connections) and friends from back home spoke to him via Skype about the boat. Benzegala said despite the internet not working, somehow Skype was functioning throughout the ordeal. Later, the U.S. Embassy sent him an email as well. Benzegala made another attempt to leave; this time, a successful one. “I kind of waited until I heard no gunshots and made a little dash for it,” he said. “I called some guy that I kind of trust over there that I figured wouldn’t be turning me in to somewhere or anything like that. I had him come and pick me up, and take me to the port.” For Benzegala, the fear continued. Weather did not permit for the boat to leave dock, so he and the other people on board had to wait three more days with warfare close by. Finally, after approximately a week of surviving violent protesting in Libya, the boat made way for Malta, a small country located south of Italy. Benzegala spent the night in Malta, then went to Sweden for a day before
returning home to Columbus. Since returning to the states, Benzegala has been working two jobs while trying to raise awareness about what’s happening in Libya by publicly speaking about his own experiences. He’s not going to let those experiences in Libya deter him from a professional basketball career overseas, though. He’ll be more aware, however, when playing in foreign countries, although sometimes the unknown comes with the job, he said. “The whole situation made a man of me. In the future, I’ll just be more careful about finding out a little bit more about where I’m going. This is kind of the nature of the business. You leave home, you don’t know what’s gonna happen. Sometimes you’ve gotta be comfortable getting out of your comfort zone, and I’ve been that way all my life. Now I’ll obviously be a little more careful about the places I choose to go play at, and go from there.”
300 spartans UT Athletics has created an exclusive lettermen’s club, 300 Spartans, to engage alumni and increase participation. Members are asked to contribute a minimum donation of $100 annually, which goes to the Sword & Shield Athletic Scholarship fund, and toward special projects to assist Spartan teams. But not all of 300 Spartans’ goals are financial. “This is a social club,” noted Stacy Estes Yates ’02. “We are establishing a venue to see old friends in social settings and support our current student athletes.” For more information, contact Gil Swalls, associate athletic director, at (813) 257-1733 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Swimming with Sharks From active classroom learning to hands-on UT’s hands-on approach to educating the whole student field research, UT students get a taste of the real world. By Jamie pilarczyk Experiential education at The University of Tampa is hard to elude. Loosely defined as learning by doing, this kind of education means being immersed – not over-the-top, but just up to the eyes where the student stretches and reaches and grows. It means one-on-one time tutoring a Spanish-speaking child in English. It also means presenting on exercise science research at an annual association conference. At UT, there are more than 40 kinds of experiential learning divided into five pillars: internships, education abroad, faculty mentored research, academic service-learning and leadership studies. Erin Tate ’11 spent hours watching videos of sand tiger sharks circling in their tanks, looking for the slightest clues as to why this type of shark develops more spinal deformities in captivity than other kinds of sharks. Tate was an animal behavior research intern at the Florida Aquarium during the 2009-2010 academic year. Working with researchers, she analyzed data, interpreted the results, presented her findings at the Sixth International Symposium on Aquatic Animal Health and will publish her results in a research 8 UTjournal fall 2011
journal. This spring Tate was selected by the Office of Career Services as UT’s first Intern of the Year. “I was nervous speaking at the conference, but I learned how to collect myself around other scientists, networked with colleagues and gained composure in speaking in front of a big audience,” said Tate, of Ridge Farm, IL. “I was so proud when it was done. It’s definitely going to be one of my best memories.” Tate’s passion is wildlife, specifically field research, animal behavior and husbandry of animals in captivity. During her internship she spent many weekends scoring data, giving up her social life for research but being immersed in the scientific process and designing experiments. “I had to learn a sense of personal responsibility,” said Tate, a biology major. “There were times when it was repetitious and tedious, but I knew it would add up to a greater goal and that was worth it.” Tate said she helped discover, as part of a bigger research project on the swimming behavior of sharks, a correlation between tank size and spinal deformities.

professor of biology who introduced Tate to the internship opportunity, said her data collection and analysis has helped to identify the behavioral signs of developing spinal deformities in these sharks, which will hopefully lead to early diagnoses and treatment of these animals. “This experience has helped Erin to understand how she can be involved in the scientific process and the dayto-day realities of being a scientific researcher,” said Huber, a shark expert. “She now understands the meaning of the ‘real world’ without yet having been thrust into it.” A Global Perspective
The elephants, warthogs and monkeys outside Jeremiah Kerr’s hotel room in Ghana were pretty cool to wake up to each morning. So was visiting the largest open air market in West Africa. Kerr ’11, a government and world affairs major, opened his eyes to a developing nation and its people in the May 2011 travel course Community-Based Development Projects in Ghana. The service-learning opportunity confirmed Kerr’s desire to join the U.S. Peace Corps after graduation and provided him “with a different perspective on life and an appreciation for a culture that I had only ever read about,” he said. 10 UTjournal fall 2011
Kerr was one of 12 students who spent the spring semester studying community-based development in a UT classroom with Assistant Professor Kevin Fridy. Once the semester ended, the class boarded a plane for Africa and for a sensory experience that being in the field could only provide. “Going to a country in sub-Saharan Africa was the only way that I would ever have come to fully appreciate all the material that I studied over the past few years,” said Kerr. “This course, combined with the travel, can provide the catalyst for a shift in the views and ambitions of the students who participate.” Kerr’s impression is exactly what faculty and administrators hope for when students are engaged in experiential education which emphasizes active learning in the classroom and field research outside it, creating an environment where education through application thrives. “We’ve always had experiential education here at UT,” said Stephanie Thomason, chairwoman of UT’s experiential education steering committee. She said two commissioned studies on the University in the mid-1990s and again in 2003 confirmed that professors were encouraging their students to learn by doing. The 1:16 faculty to student ratio alone lends itself to this kind of learning where the student is
known by name rather than just a face in a crowded lecture hall, she said. The average class size at UT is 21 students. Non-credit experiential opportunities at UT include leadership development, student employment and civic engagement/community service. UT students and employees have annually provided more than 100,000 service hours to more than 200 organizations. In 2011, for the fourth year in a row, The University of Tampa was named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for distinguished community service. The award recognizes UT’s work on service-learning programs and volunteer opportunities for students, faculty and staff. The University is an institutional member of the Council on Undergraduate Research and a strategic partner of the National Society of Experiential Education (NSEE). As the Southern Regional Institute of the NSEE, UT hosts workshops for experiential educators interested in pursuing a certificate from the Experiential Education Academy. The formal relationship with NSEE gives the faculty a way to standardize this type of learning so they can measure and benchmark their efforts. Getting A Broad Education

They can study international business in Turkey and criminal justice in the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland. Students talk with the Maori and Pakeha of New Zealand, focusing on race and ethnicity by looking at race relations. They study chemistry in art in Italy, intern with production companies at the Cannes Film Festival and Film Market in France and examine tropical biology and conservation in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Intense instruction starts in the classroom and then is put into practice on the ground. Chris Gurrie, assistant professor of speech, led a dozen students through Photograph by Elizabeth Knight Russel ’11
Europe this May to finish his travel course in international business communication. The trip – which included a discussion in Dublin with the director of global marketing for Facebook – provides a forum for experiential learning to happen. “You can attempt to plan for it and it can be difficult to assess, but you can definitely see it happening,” said Gurrie. “It’s the wacky stuff that you don’t plan that becomes on-the-spot teaching moments.” On a busy summer morning, Thomason, who also serves as the associate dean of the Sykes College of Business, was reviewing a survey of all of the
courses on campus. As a member of the experiential education steering committee, she said its goal is to have at least one highly experiential course within each degree, from research in a chemistry lab to performing musicals on stage. In the College of Business, one highly experiential course comes from Jody Tompson. He leads business students through a capstone course called Practical Strategic Assessment. In groups of about five, the students perform a case study on a company. Past participants have included Target, College Hunks Hauling Junk and the Columbia Restaurant Group.

intense industry and company analysis, the course culminates in a presentation to the owners of the companies with a long-term strategy. “I think experiential education is crucial because I doubt that there is any way to model the messiness of organizations just using case studies in textbooks and simulations,” said Tompson, director of the Naimoli Institute for Business Strategy, which hosts the course. “There is no way to figure out the complexity of an organization but by getting your hands dirty.” Graduate business students take a similar capstone course which Jonathan Barcelo ’11 describes with one word – intense. He spent an average of three days a week working with his group of five students and the rest of the time researching on his own, analyzing Buddy Brew Coffee, a Tampa- based artisan roaster coffee company. Other capstone groups have assessed companies like SOHO Cycling Studio, Tampa Electric’s Manatee Viewing Center and the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. “While really hard and difficult, at the end we learned a lot,” said Barcelo, a tax accountant with Gerdau Ameristeel in Tampa. “It was interesting working with a real company. As a small business, we were able to see their struggles and the amount of research it takes before entrepreneurs start their businesses.”
Other experiential activities at the graduate business level include the professional development practicum which gives students credit for internships, research collaboration with faculty, attending leadership seminars, participating in career development workshops, learning a language using the Rosetta Stone software and coaching at-risk undergraduates. Finding An Authentic Leadership Style
The more one looks at experiential education and its five divisions, the clearer it is that the pillars overlap, especially with one skill in particular –leadership. “For students who shy away from leadership activities, it’s still present in the classroom through things like service learning,” said Dory Estrada ’13. “Basic group work does that too. Professors who are natural born leaders are also examples, so leadership is hard to avoid at UT.” Estrada, an environmental science major with a writing minor, is from Maine. She is a member of the Honors program and is studying abroad in Costa Rica this fall. She has diverse interests and would like a career that mirrors her diverse involvement at UT. “Students should get outside of the campus bubble and become involved,” Estrada said. “Even if they don’t have
a title or role, it shows the important aspects of leadership. Leadership is action. It’s not a position.” Estrada should know what she is talking about. As a member of the second cohort of President’s Leadership Fellows, she is one of 75 students who have participated in this selective, cumulative, scholarship and leadership program that begins at the freshman level. Throughout their four years at UT, participants are taught the finer points of leading in a global world. They are paired with student mentors, assess their leadership styles and in their third year develop a sustainable community change project. The senior cohort this year is working with Tampa Heights Civic Association to build a community garden though they are finding it has been more about intergenerational cooperation, team building and creating a sense of community. Colleen Itani ‘12, an international and cultural studies major, attended her first Tampa City Council meeting in early April. The land where the garden sits is shared by the Florida Department of Transportation and the city of Tampa. Their agreement needed to be amended for the garden project to proceed. Though she was nervous, Itani stood at the council’s podium and addressed the members, speaking on behalf of the project.

“I can’t watch,” said Itani, president of STAND and Gateways mentor. “I have to be completely immersed.” The same is true for Estrada. Through her activities on campus, she has seen her leadership style evolve. “I feel I’m solidifying the kind of leader I am,” she said. Estrada has worked for UT’s Office of Student Leadership and Engagement helping plan excursions like swimming with manatees, where she learned how play and communication on a gentle, loving level can be translated into effective communication. On sailing trips she organized, Estrada realized the importance of surrounding oneself with people who are experts in their field. Estrada planned the annual Leadership Awards Night and has been a mentor for ELITE (Educating Leaders In Today’s Environment), a program for first-year and transfer students. “You’re the first face of UT they meet,” said Estrada, who has watched her mentees grow over the years. “It
has probably been one of the most unbelievable, inspiring and rewarding experiences I’ve had at UT. ELITE is rich because students are interacting with each other, helping form the leaders they are today.” A formal leadership experience can be found in UT’s leadership minor which gives official academic credentials to leadership development. It offers students access to theory-based research and the ability to apply what they’ve learned in their extracurricular activities to their academic pursuits. Toes In The Water
Assistant Professor Kevin Fridy’s community development course is meant to get students thinking realistically about project development in developing nations. The leaders he grooms have established successful projects like a small-scale microlending program that is still active one year later. They’ve also learned cross-cultural
communication, resource-planning and availability, and time management. While some projects make more lasting impressions, Fridy said the greatest impact would be simply connecting with people from a different culture. “I don’t know how much development takes place, but the students are working with the local people and they get to the point where they see them as friends,” seeing the similarities shared despite their cultural differences, he said. “If that’s all we get out of it, that’s something.” The hands-on experience is essential for understanding community development projects. While they’ve hit bumps along the way, Fridy said he’s seen UT students rise to the occasion every time. “I want students to understand how complicated and difficult a project can be on the ground,” Fridy said. “I want them to dip their toes in the water so they aren’t scared to try it again on their own.” UT
These Classrooms Don’t Have Walls Experiential education is vast and varied at The University of Tampa. Just a few more examples of what students are exposed to include the following: n Internships Lauren Ridder ’12 (at right) spent this summer as an environmental education intern with Tampa Bay Watch, a nonprofit dedicated to the protection and restoration of the Tampa Bay estuary. Ridder led experiential summer camps that introduced children to the marine life of Tampa Bay. n Education Abroad Michael Verdi ’11 and Andrew Argue ’11 were chosen to attend the first MyCube’s 2011 Digital Life Academy in Singapore this summer where they studied online privacy, data and content ownership and content monetization. n Faculty Mentored Research Associate Sociology Professor Bruce Friesen and eight of his students spent this spring collecting data on the level of hunger in the Tampa Bay area. Friesen received a $34,000 grant from the Tampa Bay Hunger Council to assess food insecurity in Hillsborough and Pinellas households.
n Academic Service-Learning For more than a decade, education students have spent one day a week with students at DeSoto Elementary School in Tampa, refining their teaching abilities and helping the large non-English speaking population with their language.

“DID YOU KNOW?” UT celebrates its 80th birthday this fall, but there are some things you might not know about the University that started as a junior college in 1931. 1. Early on, one of UT’s athletic rivals was St. Petersburg Junior College (now St. Petersburg College). Their mascot was the Trojans. So, what did UT officials decide their mascot should be? Spartans. 2. Not until 1967 could female students over the age of 21 sign out of residence halls for the weekend without parental consent. 3. 92% of UT students receive financial aid to attend UT. 4.

UT has an annual budget of $170 million and an estimated annual economic impact of $600 million. 8. UT is one of only a few schools with an “AntiGravity Monument” from
Roger Babson’s Gravity Research Foundation.

It became The University of Tampa in 1933, the same year the institution moved to the Tampa Bay Hotel. 14. Club sports include ice hockey, paintball, fishing and Quidditch, added just this year.

Most of the items are now on permanent display at the Henry B. Plant museum, where new items are donated regularly. 26. Tampa Bay Hotel guests included Edith and
Teddy Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Thomas Edison, Sarah Bernhardt, Clara Barton, Stephen Crane and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant. 27. The Spartan statue by the Martinez Sports Center was given as a gift from the graduating classes of 2004 and 2005. It stands 7 feet tall and took more than a year to sculpt. 28.

The University established a technical school in 1955 near Pinar del Rio, Cuba, to provide students there with training in aviation and electronics.

The Sykes College of Business incorporates a building originally built in 1925 as Tampa’s municipal auditorium. The city renovated it in the 1960s and
renamed it McKay Auditorium. In 1972 it became part of the UT campus, and in 2000 was expanded and reopened as the John H. Sykes College of Business. 43. The Plant Museum has a collection of four Gasparilla gowns. In 2007, the museum displayed the coronation gown of the reigning Gasparilla Queen, Katherine Dobbins ’09, while she was still a student at UT. 44.

It cost $5 to rent a room in the Tampa Bay Hotel when it opened, but most guests rented multiple rooms, usually paying a total of $15 a night. It was the equivalent of renting a suite at the Ritz Carlton today. 66. The Tampa Bay Hotel had one of the first electric elevators in the state. The Otis elevator still operates occasionally, and was used regularly by the students until about 1995 when another elevator was added to Plant Hall. 67. In 1903 the Tampa Bay Hotel included a Raccoon and Monkey House as one of its attractions. 68. The Dickey Health and Wellness Center and the Science Annex, both constructed in 2010, are on track to be UT’s first LEED-certified buildings. 69.

When President Barack Obama visited UT in January 2010, it was the first
time that a sitting president made an official visit to the UT campus. 76. Major League Baseball players Tino Martinez ’11 and Lou Piniella ’69 went to UT. Though he attended UT in the ‘80s, Martinez came back and received his degree last spring. 77.

There were exactly two spectators at UT’s first football game in 1933, which was against Rollins College. 79. For many years the John Smiley Walk denoted a sidewalk that led from Plant Hall’s west verandah to the Plant Park Pharmacy, located just west of Falk Theatre. The 1942 Rules for Freshmen stipulated that freshmen were not allowed to cut across campus on the walk unless accompanied by an upperclassman. 80. Pres. Frederic Spaulding’s advice to students in UT’s second year of existence: “Be prepared.” UT

sparking An Interest in UT’s Sports History
Sparkman’s cartoons appeared on the pages of the Tampa Times and Tampa Tribune for 40 years, from 1947-87. In addition to cartooning about the Spartans, he also drew cartoons about the athletic pursuits of the University of Florida, Florida State University, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and other area teams and athletes.

Lamar Sparkman, a sports cartoonist who designed cartoons of University of Tampa athletics as well as the original Tampa Bay Buccaneers pirate logo, died in January 2010. His family donated a vast collection of his work to the Tampa Bay History Center where it was included in a fall exhibit documenting the history of sports in Tampa through Sparkman’s eyes. As an intern for the museum this winter, history major Tamara Cremeens ’11 helped organize the Sparkman prints for the exhibit and said it was fascinating learning this aspect of the University’s history through Sparkman’s work. images Courtesy Tampa Bay History Center Collection

alumni report The scoop on your classmates and friends
Howell Hall in 1979
Hark Back to Howell In the past the only way to stay connected to your former college classmates was to attend class reunions every five years. Today, alumni can reunite with fellow UT classmates all year long via social networking sites. A simple search for The University of Tampa on Facebook will return an assortment of fan pages and groups started by both UT students and alumni and even a page entitled “University of Tampa Humans vs. Zombies.” There are a handful of alumni pages that were created by enterprising alumni looking to stay connected to other alumni and the University. UT has changed a great deal recently which has resulted in some nostalgia for a few of the old dormitories that were torn down in the name of progress. The “Remember Howell Hall” group was created by an alumnus for former residents of Howell Hall.
Over the last few months many stories have been shared by many generations of Howell Hall residents. Lived in Howell on 3rd Floor in 80 & 81. Saw several Shuttle launches from the roof and dumped plenty of water on unsuspecting people walking in the backdoor off of the parking lot. 3rd Floor was like its own fraternity. While it was sad to see it go, the new UT is awesome. – Steve Rorrer ’83 Wow. The best times and memories @ Howell hall. The other dorms just didn’t have that “It” Factor for me. I will never forget. I was there in the 3rd floor in my freshmen year. Great Parties, Room hopping, Free laundry(if you knew the trick!!!!) and overall amazing friends That was the last year of Howell Hall. – Hector Gonzalez ’01 I arrived in August of 68, there was no central air and there were no boys past the lobby. We had house mothers who were so wonderfully southern and they would call
up when you had a boy caller! I mistakenly avoided a few who I didn’t think I knew well enough to entertain in the lobby.... Oh to be back in those days!!!!! – Debby Crawford Fleming ’72 There are also Facebook pages out there that have the goal of connecting UT grads to one another. The New England and Washington, D.C. alumni chapters each have group pages. Pages were recently started for UT alumni in the Tri-State area around New York City and for UT Army ROTC alumni. These groups serve as a great way for graduates to find other alumni in their respective cities and to reconnect around the common bond of UT. We hope that all of these Facebook pages and the memories and connections they instill will help to continue and increase alumni affinity of the University. A great way to share that affinity with your fellow classmates is to return to campus and relive the memories together in person. This year Homecoming and reunions are scheduled for Oct. 20-22, and we’ll be celebrating class years that end in 1 or 6. I invite you to come back to campus and “Remember Howell Hall” in person by taking a walk in the park that sits in Howell’s footprint. You can even follow up the walk with a tour of the dorms that went up after Howell came down, and I can guarantee that the elevators won’t get stuck between floors. The complete schedule of activities can be found at alumni.ut.edu, and we look forward to welcoming you back to campus and all the memories it holds.

Patricia Tallant Hare ’48 Breaking All the Rules She’ll tell you her age — 86 — and her dress size — 6 —without batting an eye. She was named Miss Tampa in 1946, but she was more proud of being named Miss Congeniality. While at UT, she got permission from the president to live in one of the minarets, so she could stay out late singing in the Sapphire Room at the Floridan Hotel downtown. “My father would go every time he could,” she said. “He would tell me to stop tapping my foot. I said, ‘I gotta tap my foot and feel that beat.’” Today she refuses to slow down, riding her bicycle from Harbour Island to volunteer at the Tampa Bay History Center, the Florida Aquarium and Tampa General Hospital. At the hospital she rocks the premature babies and sews 16 bags a week for patients in rehab. “I love the hospital,” she says. “There are so many more people you can help, like someone in Photo courtesy of the tampa tribune
a wheelchair struggling to get down the corridor. You can just start pushing and take them where they want to go.” It’s fitting that her maiden name is Tallant. She can play almost any instrument there is and teaches blind children to play. After graduating from UT, Hare went to The Julliard School in New York City. She wanted to choreograph shows but said New York scared her to death. She got a master’s degree in education from Columbia University, signed by Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was president of the university at the time. She came home to Tampa, married and started the music program at Tampa Bay Boulevard Elementary School. She still teaches people to play all kinds of instruments, and her most loyal pupil has been with her for 57 years. “I love people, and I love to do for people,” she says.” UTjournal fall fall 2011 2011 23

Jeff Grim ’02 Summer “On Ice”
After an unusually cold winter in Boston, Jeff Grim spent almost the entire summer in Antarctica researching an unusual species commonly called “icefish.” He was only on the ice for four weeks, but it can take a week or more of travel each way, including a four- to five-day boat ride across the Drake Passage to get to Palmer Station, operated by the United States Antarctic Program. Though the program does a good job housing, feeding and supporting scientists, Grim 26 UTjournal fall 2011
still had to order and pack everything he would possibly need, because there are no stores and a boat only comes to Palmer from Chile every so often. “Antarctica is a harsh and wild environment, and much of the Antarctic continent and surrounding oceans remain unexplored,” he says. “As a consequence, Antarctica has a mystique that draws scientists from a wide range of disciplines.” Grim, who received his master’s degree at The University of West Florida, and his Ph.D. at Ohio University, got his first chance to travel to the continent when his Ph.D. advisor re-started her Antarctic research program in 2009. She was looking for a field assistant and asked him to participate. “I was hooked,” he says. “Once one comes to work on the Antarctic continent, there is an indescribable urge to return as soon and as frequently as possible.” When his Ph.D. was completed, Grim joined the lab of H. William Detrich III at Northeastern University in Boston as a National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The group of fishes Grim studies is uniquely adapted to live in the cold (-1.9C) waters surrounding the Western Antarctic Peninsula. They maintain a body temperature that is close to freezing, but they have antifreeze proteins that prevent them from freezing solid. Some of these fish even lack the red blood pigment called hemoglobin, which is responsible for transporting oxygen through the blood. They call these fish “icefish,” because their blood is clear. The icefish survive because the extremely cold seawater in the Southern Ocean has a higher oxygen concentration than warm waters elsewhere. However, the region is one of the most quickly warming places on the planet, Grim says, so the survival of these animals could be at risk if they can’t function properly in warmer waters.

brick by brick How supporters improve the UT experience
Why I Give: Rodney Piatt ’74 Q: What were you involved in at UT? A: I was very involved in Greek life
and became the president of the Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter and president of the Inter Fraternity Council. Being a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon gave me the opportunity to be active in many UT events as well as support charitable causes, but most importantly, it gave me the opportunity to establish lifelong friendships. Being a member of the golf team was also significant, as it was great to represent the school athletically, and my captain and teammate, Bob Ford, has remained one of my dearest friends throughout my life. Rodney Piatt‚ ’74 is a committed donor to UT’s annual fund.
Major: Accounting Current Profession: Founder and president of Horizon Properties Q: What do you like best about UT? A: I like the fact that UT has been very
progressive with its growth and has had the required visionary leadership needed to establish the University as a leader in many fields. The campus environment, as well as the curriculum offering, has been exemplary in all respects. Q: Do you have a favorite place on campus?
Q: Most memorable professor? A: My most memorable professor had
to be Alvan McFadyen. He had such a Southern way about him and just loved what he was doing. He was so engaging with the students. Q: How did UT prepare you for what you do now? A: Being at UT was just the opportunity I needed as a young person to find out what was needed in life to be successful. The setting of a smaller school was the atmosphere I needed to be engaged as a student. Also, I liked the fact that many of my accounting classes were taught by professors who also worked in business, so there was a different perspective brought to the classroom that I thought was effective.
A: As a student my favorite place on
campus was always the lobby of Plant Hall. What a great environment for students to congregate and interact with each other on a daily basis. 30 UTjournal fall 2011
Q: How do you continue to stay connected to UT? A: I have tried to be involved with UT
by staying in contact with the admin-
istrators of the school and understanding the positive direction in which the University is headed. One of the most enjoyable moments is receiving and reading all the publications sent to me as an alumnus and friend of UT. It’s always exciting to see how much UT has changed throughout the years and the impact UT is having on the region and the nation. Q: Why do you support UT? A: Supporting UT is just an easy thing
to do! I have such fond memories of UT, and when I think of the people that have been life-long friends and the success that I have been fortunate enough to have, and knowing that it all started at UT, well how could you not want to make an impact for the students who are following you by making UT a greater institution for them?

Parents Establish Scholarship in Son’s Name
The parents of Doug Kozar ’09, the UT alumnus who was killed by a drunk driver when walking to his car on Harbour Island, have established an endowed scholarship in his name. “We decided we wanted to do something that would keep Doug’s memory alive,” his father, Russ Kozar, said. “We wanted to do something that was somehow affiliated with UT. He absolutely loved the school.” The need-based scholarship will go to a junior criminology or criminal justice major and will continue into his or her senior year. It will be awarded starting in fall 2012. The Douglas J. Kozar Memorial Endowed Scholarship will continue the legacy of a young man who friends say was quick to help out those in need. “His friends would say he was the first one to lend a helping hand,” Kathy Kozar said. “Doug embodied the values we taught him in our home, and we couldn’t be prouder of the man he became.”

Message from the Vice President for Development and University Relations In 1972, the Minaret Society was established to give friends of The University of Tampa an opportunity to participate in the advancement of UT through annual giving. Those who donate $1,000-$9,999 annually to UT are members of the Minaret Society, either on the Bronze, Silver or Gold Crescent levels. Those donors who make a gift of $10,000 or higher annually are Minaret Society members at the President’s Council level at either Gold, Silver or Bronze levels. The University deeply appreciates all of our donors, especially those who are members of the Minaret Society. Every November, all members of the Minaret Society from the previous fiscal year are invited to attend our annual Minaret Society Dinner. Beginning in the 2012-2013 fiscal year, invitations to the dinner will be extended only to those donors who are members of the Minaret Society Silver Crescent level ($2,500-$4,999) or higher. The first Minaret Society Dinner that this will become effective is the November 2013 event.

Students in Beth Eschenfelder’s classes often provide consulting for nonprofits.
leaving a legacy
Teaching by Example UT Students who are in Beth Eschenfelder’s public relations campaign course enjoy her teaching methodology and talent for communicating a consistent lesson that will serve them well in life – that it’s important to develop a strong sense of responsibility to the community and to those less fortunate. An assistant professor of communication, Eschenfelder sets this example by her own actions and community involvement, a powerful endorsement for doing the right thing. For Eschenfelder, helping others is not just an academic exercise, it’s using her time, talents and treasure to support causes she is passionate about, whether it’s
in a university setting or communitybased. She is hoping her students learn this lesson as well. As a scholar of applied research into organizational infrastructure, Eschenfelder likes to involve her students in projects that include nonprofit organizations as subject matter. As part of the curriculum, students create a public relations campaign for existing organizations. “I like to assign students to projects with nonprofits,” Eschenfelder explained. “I feel it’s ethical to use nonprofit organizations for our students to work with as we are providing a service that they (nonprofits) may, otherwise, not be able to afford. Often,
Financial planning 101
the nonprofit organizations will use campaign materials that our students create for them.” Eschenfelder sets an example herself as she often consults with nonprofits on various research projects. Wherever she provides a service, it’s always pro-bono. She has supported such organizations as the Tampa Junior League, Operation PAR, the Salvation Army of North Pinellas and the Tarpon Alliance for Humanity to name a few. “It’s important to give back to the community,” she said. “I try to instill ethical values in my students. It must be personal. I encourage students to get involved and plug into their communities, and nonprofits are a great way to do that. I asked that students consider jobs in the nonprofit sector and to donate services for charitable organizations. They need it badly.” Giving back is a predominant theme in Eschenfelder’s life. Not only does she offer her services to nonprofit organizations, but also believes strongly in charitable giving. The professor donates to UT’s communication scholarship and the honor society of Phi Kappa Phi through employee payroll deduction. In addition, she has included The University of Tampa in her estate plans through life insurance and retirement funds. “I give back because it’s something that I do,” she added “It’s what you should do.” Need more information about Planned Giving?

Did you know that if you leave your IRA or 401(k) to children, family or friends as an inheritance that they will have to pay 25-35% to the IRS the year they receive their gift?

80 years of
LIVES 2010-2011 MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT RONALD L. VAUGHN
It’s difficult to envision what The University of Tampa was like 80 years ago. You’d recognize Plant Hall and the Hillsborough River, but likely little else of campus. You’d feel the lush, tropical breezes and sun-drenched winters that characterize our location. But most of all, you’d likely recognize UT’s quest – to provide access for young people to obtain a top-notch education and prepare them to be outstanding citizens. Throughout the 80 years of UT’s history, faces have changed, policies have been written and rewritten, enrollments have varied, yet we have been able to move forward to where we are now – a stable, financially sound, highlydesirable, model university that responds to students’ needs in the 21st century. Each year we take steps toward our mission of improving students’ ability to learn and succeed in the future, rethinking and updating protocols, welcoming the most deserving students, making campus more comfortable for current students and attractive to future students, streamlining processes and investing in our future. This year was no different. It’s uncanny that in 1931 the U.S. was mired in the Great Depression, and today, we are struggling to recover from the Great Recession. No doubt just like UT’s leaders in 1931, we are forced to be more aggressive, nimble and strategic in order to thrive in the difficult economic conditions. Fortunately, we have been successful in finding ways to break enrollment records and continue to transform the campus, all while staying true to our mission of transforming students. 34 UTjournal Fall 2011

student affairs Being a UT student in 1931 was a very different thing than it is today. While UT’s first students were all from Tampa, today our students are considerably more diverse – they come from all 50 states and 114 countries, and they represent nearly every conceivable ethnic, racial, religious and economic background. Early UT students lived at home until the upper floors of Plant Hall became a de facto dormitory. Today 65 percent of full-time students live in 10 residence halls on campus. Once UT built its earliest dormitories, visiting rules were strict. Today’s residence halls are considerably more social, yet still very secure. Eighty years ago, the first clubs included “La Tertulia,” a Spanish-language group, the Sanitary Engineers (a club formed by the student janitorial force), the Dramatic Club, the Debating Club and the Science Club. Today UT has more than 160 clubs, from the Constitutional Law Club to Quidditch. Fraternities
and sororities were created within two years of UT’s founding, and today there are 19 chapters. We know that students who are more comfortable in their living arrangements and extracurricular activities do better academically.

into college and learn to be successful students and graduates, and thus increase UT’s retention rate. We also built a new online housing selection system, and students selected their room using that software. The opening of the Dickey Health and Wellness Center will be an asset to students’ well being. Total visits to the new health
center last spring semester increased 28 percent, and the center also houses all programming related to student wellness, such as stress reduction and alcohol awareness.

The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement (OSLE) took the lead in facilitating programming for the new Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values. During the spring semester 160 events took place there – programming that previously did not exist.

academics Each year, UT further secures its place as a model institution that provides an excellent education. Eighty years ago, there were 12 faculty members who taught 32 classes – covering English, French, German, Latin, Spanish, education, history, art, chemistry, mathematics, biblical studies and mathematics. Today there are over 500 faculty who teach more than 3,500 classes faculty each year and are experts in almost every field imaginable. In 1931 the University began preparing for its first accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. UT now owns that, and 10 other accreditations. In the spring of 1935, after its fourth year of existence, UT graduated 14 students. Last year, more than 1,600 students graduated with a UT diploma.
This year’s accomplishments continued the trend of academic excellence as UT joined the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society, Phi Kappa Phi. This brings national recognition to our academic programs. As you read on page 8, we continue to be a model for experiential education. In one of many examples, UT continues to provide a global education to our students, and we report that 35 percent more students studied abroad this year. This is likely a record number. We continue to respond to student needs for majors and subject areas. This year we created the innovative, low-residency MFA program in creative writing, a minor in Latin American studies, an allied health major, a major in journalism and courses in Portuguese and Arabic. Twenty-five new faculty and staff members were hired this year to help provide expert instruction and improve support for various elements of the educational experience.
35 percent more students studied abroad.
Since we determined that many students have difficulty choosing their major, we started a “majors fair” to better serve undecided students. Twenty-four percent of those attending changed or declared their major. Accomplishments in
faculty research and artistic achievement were plenty. n College of Business — 104 publications and 72 conference presentations. n College of Arts and Letters—Four books, 28 publications of articles, chapters and recordings, 67 juried exhibitions or conference presentations, 60 concerts, recitals and stage productions. n College of Natural and Health Sciences — 68 publications and 45 conference presentations. n College of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Education — Two books, 36 articles, 13 chapters, 69 conference presentations.

enrollment On Oct. 1, 1931, UT held its first admissions event – registration at Hillsborough High School. More than 50 enrolled that night. UT’s first enrollment report showed that 67 students eventually registered for the University’s first fall semester in 1931. Nine dropped out, but 15 new students registered for the second semester. Certainly the admissions and enrollment process at UT has become a thousand times more complex through the years, as recruiting has become hypercompetitive, worldwide and has evolved with technological advances. This year we implemented more than 60 new initiatives to remain successful in the admissions market. For instance, the admissions counselors and support staff planned more events for prospective students, parents and college counselors. These include admitted student receptions, counselor fly-in events, open houses and a myriad of other special events. Technologically we advance in ways previously unimaginable. In one example, we conceived and implemented an admitted student portal, The Verandah, which allows for a safe, secure social media site only for admitted UT students. The site has more than
1,200 student users, and it’s clear that those who participate are much more likely to become future Spartans. While UT continues to set enrollment records, the interest and selectivity of UT students increases along with it. More than 80,000 student inquiries were received this year from prospective freshmen. This year about 50 percent of freshmen applicants were admitted, as opposed to 58 percent in 2010. This compares to much higher applicant admission percentages, in

operations The first impression many people get of UT is Plant Hall, with its memorable and iconic minarets. When UT started as Tampa Junior College in 1931 its home was Hillsborough High School. Two years later UT found its home in the vacated Tampa Bay Hotel — along with the mold, vandalism and ceiling leaks that pervaded it. Today the beautifully-restored Plant Hall remains the focal point of campus, one that is surrounded by 49 other modern and historic campus buildings. Just as the renovation of Plant Hall never ends (see the story about the Chiselers’ latest project, page 31), nor does our work in building new facilities and renovating older ones. Of course, you can’t talk about UT’s history without at least touching on the financial difficulties that plagued the University from day one. Fortunately, today UT’s finances are stable, and every budget for the past 16 years has been balanced. UT’s annual budget in 1931 — $20,000 — would last about one hour in today’s annual budget of $170 million.
It’s worth noting here that for the second year in a row Charity Navigator has awarded UT with a 4-star rating — the highest a charity can receive — for its ability to efficiently manage and grow its finances. Most notable this year was the completion of the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values. This award-winning, magnificent

and distinctive building, which was a vision held for more than 15 years, will help students build their own character and values for years to come. The 55foot tall pipe organ inside the chapel was warmly received with standing-room only audiences for a series of concerts last spring.
The new Stephen H. and Marsha Dickey Health and Wellness Center was dedicated in the fall, and today is the hub of student health and wellness. The Kennedy Building, a multi-purpose academic building, and the Science Annex, were also opened during the fall. The health center and Science Annex are currently in consideration as our first LEEDcertified campus buildings. This summer we began major renovations to the Martinez Sports Center (see page 2). This will allow for much needed space for the popular Health Science and Human Performance program, as well as for athletic purposes. We made a dramatic renovation of the campus bookstore, and have upped the store’s online presence. Both resulted in an updated, customer friendly environment, and came in tandem with a new logo licensing program. This program
will help UT promote and protect its brand and logos, ultimately increasing our visibility and perception as an institution. When UT moved from Hillsborough High School to Plant Hall in 1933, the institution’s possessions fit

A Devotion to UT First Lady Renée Vaughn is an untiring advocate of UT In its 80-year existence, UT has had some very strong and passionate first ladies. My wife, Renée, is one of them. She is committed to UT and is actively involved in supporting UT’s mission through campus and community involvement. Plus, she is one of my best advisors and critics. Renée is also active in the Tampa Bay community and on the boards of the H.B. Plant Museum (past president), UT Board of Fellows (past president), Leadership Tampa Bay (past president), Leadership Tampa Alumni (chair elect), Red Cross Angels (vice president) and Rotary Club of Tampa. Renée is also a member of the Tampa General Hospital Women’s Leadership Council, The Chiselers and Athena Society. She owns the Williams Consulting Group, a public relations firm. The University and I are indeed lucky to have such a strong advocate and first lady.

Then and Now
Eighty years ago, in an effort to attract favorable community recognition to the fledgling University of Tampa, athletics were established quickly. Basketball, tennis and swimming were the first organized sports, with contests against such institutions as St. Petersburg Junior College, Tampa Business College and Hillsborough High School. The first UT football game was played against Rollins College in 1933, and two people attended – UT’s president and one member of the board of trustees. Today UT is an athletic powerhouse. With 20 men’s and women’s teams, the Spartans have won 12 NCAA II national championships and have secured 59 Sunshine State Conference (SSC) titles in the past two decades. This year the Spartans fared well on the field, in the classroom and in the community. We won five SSC championships, nearly won a national championship (volleyball ended as second in the country), five coaches were recognized as coaches of the year on the national and conference levels, recorded a 3.12 GPA cumulative grade point average for all athletes and
The UT men’s basketball team set a new record for consecutive wins.

received the NCAA II Best in Conference community engagement award. Overall, it was a good year for the record books. Men’s basketball started the year off 16-0, a school record for most consecutive wins. Softball had the most strikeouts and homeruns in a season. Softball and volleyball set a school record for wins. Women’s basketball played in the NCAA regional for the seventh straight year, which is the only school in the SSC to do so. When they weren’t winning games UT athletes

Eighty years from now UT leaders will likely look back and wonder how we ever provided an education in such a quaint era of 2011. Advances will be made that will revolutionize learning, new educational policies and programs will respond to issues arising in new eras and students will have opportunities like never before. However, as for now we continue to build UT’s foundation, so that it can stay on course, with its mission always in mind. We achieve that day by day and year to year, with help from committed friends and UT community members. Thank you for joining us on that path.

A Key Moment In 1933, two years after UT’s founding, the University’s first president, Frederic H. Spaulding (left), unlocks the massive front door of the former Tampa Bay Hotel, which would from then on be The University of Tampa’s landmark building. Accompanying him is John Coulson, dean of the college and professor of astronomy. Today, thousands of students pass through those same doors every day, and the iconic Plant Hall continues to symbolize UT’s past and future.
