Earning their Stripes Emerging Leaders and Helen Hardin Honors programs challenge University of Memphis students to reach new heights.
When Emerging Leader Bianca Russell was a sophomore, the strap on her backpack broke, the result of carrying too many books. “It’s a common problem among Emerging Leaders,” says the accounting major from Covington, Tenn. “It’s mostly books because we strive to be great students.” Emerging Leaders, a four-year leadership and academic scholarship program, is the driving force behind Russell’s extensive campus involvement. She serves as treasurer of Alpha Kappa Psi, treasurer of Habitat for Humanity and philanthropy chair of Black Scholars Unlimited. “Emerging leaders helped me critically think about the structure of every organization I entered and evaluate how to be the best within each one,” she says. The Emerging Leaders and the Helen Hardin Honors programs, two signature initiatives for academically talented, motivated students, have experienced remarkable growth recently. Former U of M President Shirley Raines put a particular emphasis on the Honors Program. Fall 2013 enrollment in the program was 2,115, up from about 700 before Raines’ arrival in 2001. That number surpasses the University’s goal of having 10 percent of undergraduates enrolled in the program. “We’ve been able to build the program and add incentives,” says Melinda Jones, program director. These include the Living Learning Community, which houses 200 honors students. Honors Hall, located on Patterson, offers a comfortable student lounge, computer lab and classrooms, so students can either study or socialize. “If you come here at 5 p.m., the place is packed,” says Jones. There are service opportunities for honors students as well, and they have the option of participating in a summer undergraduate research fellowship.
Emerging Leaders began with five students in 1983. Since then it has served more than 700 students, with about 50 freshmen added each fall. Students get intensive leadership training, including classroom instruction, workshops and community projects, and active engagement in campus and community organizations. Participants come from across Tennessee, as well as high schools in 17 other states. Students say the programs offer an extensive array of experiences they wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate in. “As I started conducting research during my junior year, the Honors Program funded my first attendance at the 2013 National Conference on Undergraduate Research,” says T.K. Phung, a senior biomedical engineering major from Germantown. “Also, I was able to study abroad in Cape Town, South Africa, during the Honors Spring Break Trip last semester.” Kaylee Willis, a sport and leisure management major from Drummonds, Tenn., says the Emerging Leaders program helped her step outside her comfort zone. “We are encouraged to try new things, and to apply to organizations such as Up ’til Dawn and Freshmen Senate,” she says. “We have to have a certain number of community service hours, a level of involvement with two different campus organizations, and manage that with class, work and social activities. I now balance a full-time internship, being president of a Greek organization, being a part of the Up ’til Dawn Executive Board, other honor societies and organizations I am a part of, as well as a job.” L. Taylor Smith, a senior majoring in Spanish, journalism and English, says, “There are so many great programs and events that happen through the Honors Program, but it’s impossible to do them all. Eventually, you have
“I now balance a full-time internship, being president of a Greek organization, being a part of the Up ’til Dawn Executive Board, other honor societies and organizations I am a part of, as well as a job.” to pick and choose what you want to focus on. And, the honors classes have challenged me academically and put me in touch with some of the best professors on campus.” Visit www.memphis.edu/leadership_ programs/emerging.php for more information on Emerging Leaders. Visit www.memphis. edu/honors for details on the Honors Program.
Being able to network with like-minded peers who have success on their radars is one of the many benefits U of M students such as Dixon Williams and Honors alum Shellie Epperson enjoy as being a part of Emerging Leaders and the Helen Hardin Honors Program. W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

Size of the Matter A recently established professorship is helping a U of M researcher build solutions to real-world problems molecule by molecule.
University of Memphis electrical and computer engineering professor Russell Deaton has simple advice for students looking for a path to success: “Do your homework and go to class,” he imparts. “That advice means that nothing comes easy and you have to work toward advancing toward success every day. Wasn’t it Woody Allen who said that 80 percent of success is showing up?” Weighty advice passed along by a man who deals in minute matters on a daily basis: Deaton is one of the country’s top researchers when it comes to research into the selfassembly of nanostructures using binding reactions between DNA molecules. Deaton’s aim, simply put, is to build useful devices and materials for applications in biology, medicine and materials science from the bottom up, molecule by molecule. “The goal of my research is to develop design methods and controllable manufacturing techniques to structure materials at the nanometer scale,” Deaton says. “It is basically a technique to manufacture materials with predetermined material properties by adding one molecule at a time. “The potential is for more intelligent and capable medical devices, better materials for energy applications, and smaller and more capable computational devices. The research also involves fundamental questions that relate to our understanding of living systems, and we hope to gain some scientific insight with
quantitative models into how life is organized and functions.” Deaton’s research creates huge potential for medical and energy applications that could impact millions of people in positive ways in the future. Deaton serves as chair of electrical and computer engineering in the Herff College of Engineering, and was recently appointed to the Ring Companies Professorship. A portion of the $256 million raised in the Empowering the Dream centennial capital campaign is establishing professorships such as Deaton’s to “play a crucial role in the University’s ability to recruit and retain talented faculty, and to provide a decided edge to U of M students in the global marketplace,” says Bobby Prince, U of M associate vice president for Development. Ring Container Technologies Inc. made a $300,000 gift to establish the professorship fund in 2010. Carl Ring, company chair, says, “For many years, we at Ring Companies have worked with Herff faculty and students and have found them to be highly skilled and among the best we’ve dealt with in the nation. I hope this gift will support the College in its continued pursuit of excellence, and will allow us to say ‘thank you’ to a group that highly deserves it.” The professorship allowed the U of M to bring the highly respected researcher back to campus after a 12-year absence. He previously was a faculty member in the Herff College
from 1992-2000 after earning a BSEE degree from the U of M and an MSEE and PhD from Duke University. “The Ring Companies Professorship gives me the opportunity to augment my research efforts to support students or my own research efforts,” Deaton says. But he notes this wasn’t the only reason he returned. “I greatly admire the accomplishments of the U of M,” he says. “To me, it is an example of an area institution where people from all sorts of backgrounds cooperate to accomplish things that benefit the whole community. I think it has a great power for good in Memphis, and I am proud and happy to help out.” Visit www.memphis.edu/development to explore the many different ways to contribute to the University, including professorships such as the Ring Companies Professorship.

Eye on the Prize A $40 million capital campaign will greatly enhance Park Avenue Campus practice facilities for U of M athletics.
Martin Ifedi and Joe Jackson play different sports at the University of Memphis, but both know the importance of having state-of-theart practice facilities when it comes to the recruitment process. “You go around to other schools on recruiting trips and come here to Memphis and one of the things you analyze are the facilities, including where you train,” says Ifedi, a senior defensive end who earlier this year was leading the nation in sacks. “That can make a difference in a big-time recruit choosing your school or not. You look at the locker rooms and how nice the indoor and outdoor practice facilities are. Then you compare them to other places you have been.” “Kids on recruiting trips take note of the quality of the practice and weight areas,” says Jackson, senior guard on the basketball team. “Something flashy instead of an old gym can make a difference in a guy coming here or not. You want to impress them with a building they are going to be in for much of the next four years. You want to be able to tell them that they aren’t going to find anything better than what we have here.” Thanks to a $40 million capital improvement plan, the two sports could have new practice facilities on the Park Avenue Campus in the near future. The monies would also go toward improvements to existing athletic facilities as part of a larger vision for Park Avenue. “We are entering a critical period in the evolution of our athletic programs and the $40 million capital improvement plan signifies
“This is an opportunity to elevate Memphis and ensure the Tigers will compete for championships with the nation’s best athletic programs for decades to come.” a tremendous commitment from Interim President Brad Martin and the leadership of our University,” U of M Athletic Director Tom Bowen says. “This is an opportunity to elevate Memphis and ensure the Tigers will compete for championships with the nation’s best athletic programs for decades to come.” The basketball facility would house offices and unrivaled practice space for both the men’s and women’s teams. An indoor football/track practice facility is being planned to replace the antiquated turf room. Hitting and pitching cages will be added to the field area of the softball stadium. A soccer stadium that will bring the men’s and women’s home games back to campus after a several-year absence is in the works and will be built in conjunction with a state-of-the-art track facility that should help bring the track and field program up to par with other American Athletic Conference teams. The U of M built one of the best golf practice facilities on the Park Avenue Campus in
2009, thanks to philanthropic contributions of longtime University supporter Frank Flautt (BS ‘63). “You won’t find a better practice facility in the country — design-wise, we are on the leading edge,” says Flautt. Since the building’s opening, the men’s team has been able to recruit higher-caliber players and has earned several NCAA appearances. The $40 million campaign is designed to do that for all the sports on Park Avenue Campus by providing all-important upgrades and additions. “As President Martin has said, we will need your help in achieving these goals,” says Bowen. “This campaign is designed to have a positive impact on our sports programs for years and years to come.” For information on how to contribute to this campaign, visit www. memphisathleticsdevelopment.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
U of M pitcher Ellen Roberts, teammates and fans will find much-needed stadium upgrades as part of a $40 million capital improvement plan scheduled to also include new practice facilities for men’s and women’s basketball and other additions to the Park Avenue Campus. W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

Giving Back U of M alumnus Jim Ayers has helped thousands of students from West Tennessee attend institutions of higher learning.
Since 1999, the Ayers Foundation Scholars Program has provided financial support for students from three West Tennessee counties to attend college. But as the students discover, the support is about more than just dollars. “The Ayers Program is well known for the financial aid it provides, but it is so much more than that,” says Jordan Harrington, a senior health care administration major from Scotts Hill, Tenn. “The Ayers Foundation places a college adviser in each school that is part of the program, and mine has helped me in so many ways.” Belinda Reed, director of Outreach Services for the program, was vital in helping her secure an internship with West Tennessee Healthcare at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. “This has benefited me more than anything else ever could have. It was an amazing experience that I never even dreamed existed,” says Harrington, who attends the U of M Lambuth Campus. The pair developed such a strong relationship that Reed also has helped her with matters outside of school. “The Foundation gives college support and advising that, when utilized, will take a student much further than he or she could do alone,” Harrington says. The Ayers Foundation Scholars Program provides $4,000 a year to eligible high school students in Henderson, Perry and Decatur counties and offers counseling sessions that put the student on track toward higher education. It was established by Jim Ayers, chair of FirstBank, the financial services
“My parents knew the importance of a good education. As far back as I can remember, it was drilled into me.” company he nurtured from a single branch to Tennessee’s largest independently owned and operated bank. Ayers also had successful careers in health care and real estate. He is perhaps most proud, though, of his contributions to increasing educational opportunities for young people. His foundation supports a wide range of programs. “My parents knew the importance of a good education. As far back as I can remember, it was drilled into me,” says Ayers, who earned a bachelor of business administration degree in accounting from the U of M in 1969. He decided the best way he could give back was to support those who don’t have the financial resources or encouragement to continue their studies beyond high school. Stephanie White’s hard work earned her an academic scholarship, but it was the Ayers Program that provided the last piece of support that has helped the junior from Lexington, Tenn., pay for college. The award allows the
nursing major to be involved on the Lambuth Campus without holding an outside job. White is a member of the Campus Activities Board, Student Nurses Association, Students Recruiting Students and the Wesley Foundation. “I’ve been very active on campus, which I couldn’t have done if I had another job,” she says. Michael Azbill, a sophomore criminal justice major from Lexington, also is able to attend Lambuth, thanks to Ayers. “Tuition and housing are very expensive, and this program helps me pursue my dream in my field,” says Azbill. After graduation, he hopes to become a police officer and then pursue a career with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation or a federal agency. Azbill has served on the Lambuth Senate board and is a member of Students Recruiting Students and the Campus Activities Board. He volunteers with the Lambuth Area Neighborhood Association and Regional InterFaith Association. Some 3,457 students have benefited from the Ayers Program since it was established in 1999. About 130 of those have been able to attend the U of M on Ayers Scholarships, totaling more than $760,000. Currently 26 Ayers Scholars are enrolled at the Lambuth Campus. “We are committed to a better standard of living for our students and their families,” Ayers says. “The best way we know how to accomplish this is an increased amount of formal education.”

Lessons Learned Unique teacher preparation initiative at the U of M receives more than just a passing grade.
One of the recently announced priorities at the University of Memphis is to make the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences the nation’s top producer of great K-12 teachers and to provide 400 superb instructors per year to the region. Thanks to a new teacher preparation program at the U of M, the school is well on its way. The program, Ready2Teach, includes a oneyear residency requirement for teachers. It is already having dramatic effects on learning, according to Campus School Director Susan Copeland. “I can say that the achievement of our elementary school students has steadily gone up since the placement of Ready2Teach teacher-candidates in Campus School,” Copeland says. “We have had a 20 percent gain in math just this year. “The timeframe for the program and the one-year residency requirement is wonderful because the teacher-candidates get the entire experience from the start of the school year to the end — not just a snippet of someone else’s classroom during an occasional visit. They’re here from the beginning and they own it from the beginning. I must say that it really shows at the end when the teacher-candidates walk out and they’re polished and they’re ready and they have a confidence level that they didn’t have before.” Dr. E. Sutton Flynt, director of Teacher Education at the U of M, says Ready2Teach is a program for all undergraduate teacher licensure programs at the University.
“The year-long immersion in a real-world classroom, coupled with a demanding capstone teaching assessment, is allowing our candidates to demonstrate that they will be able to improve the achievement of all students they are assigned to teach after they complete the University’s program,” Flynt says. Local school administrator Margaret Gilmore says Ready2Teach is “the best teacher preparation residency program I have witnessed in my 28 years in education.” “It is a two-fold blessing for both the district and University of Memphis,” she says. “We are given the opportunity to partner our superstar teachers with pre-service teachers and serve as mentors and coaches to a group of young people who have chosen this noble profession. Our district has hired some of these Ready2Teach teachers from the U of M, and we feel that they are extremely prepared to walk into a classroom and actually teach.” Barbara Hodge, principal of Barret’s Chapel Elementary School, says, “Involving the University students in setting up a classroom, preparing for student registration and participating in in-service activities allows them to enter the world of teaching armed with reality-based knowledge and experience. These real-world lessons could not have been replicated in the University campus arena. The program has made a dynamic difference in students’ lives at Barret’s Chapel.” Ready2Teach includes ongoing formative assessments that monitor teacher-candidate’s progress and a summative Teacher
“I can say the achievement of our elementary school students has steadily gone up since the placement of Ready2Teach teachercandidates in Campus School.” Performance Assessment that is modeled after the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards. Other elements include emphasizing to teacher-candidates the increased importance of the integration of technology use in teaching plans and an awareness of “real-world problem solving” as a teaching tool. “Authentic experiences are the hallmark of effective clinical experience,” says Dean Donald Wagner. “We are fortunate to have a wonderful partnership with local school districts that enables us to bring these authentic experiences to our Residency 1 candidates.” U.S. News & World Report recently ranked the U of M’s elementary and secondary teacher preparation programs on its Honor Roll in its first Teacher Prep Review that evaluated 1,200 programs nationwide.

Winning Ways Tiger Scholarship Fund puts athletes on the path to success both on and off the field.
A big grin broke out on Jacob Karam’s face. “I don’t think I have ever had so much fun,” says the University of Memphis quarterback. But it wasn’t a touchdown pass for Karam over burly defensive linemen and fleet-footed safeties that brought the ear-to-ear smile to Karam’s face, but rather a pint-sized patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Karam was volunteering at the hospital when he randomly sat down at a piano to strike a few chords. Twelve-year-old cancer patient Breanna Bercegeay sat beside him and began singing for an impromptu “concert” that lasted 11 songs. A video of the heartwarming moment went viral on the Internet: some 400,000 views had been recorded by October. Many U of M athletes funded by the Tiger Scholarship Fund perform charitable work in the community. The Memphis men’s soccer team holds an annual Kicks for a Cause match that benefits such organizations as the American Red Cross; women’s soccer visits Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital; the baseball team takes part in cancer benefits; and softball player Libby Goranson and her team are holding benefits and awareness activities for the Autism Society of the Mid-South. “We recruit student-athletes not only for their talent on the field, but also for their good character,” Memphis Athletic Director Tom Bowen says. “We expect them to be good citizens off the field and to take part in community activities. Jacob exemplifies all of
those things that represent being a studentathlete at Memphis — his academics, his ability to perform on the field and then his unbelievable humanitarian efforts that he has done very quietly on his own at St. Jude. The same thing can be said for Libby and many of our other athletes.” The Tiger Scholarship Fund raised $6.62 million last year, monies that go directly toward student-athlete scholarships. Wren Baker, deputy athletic director, says the goal for this year is $6.95 million. Both Bowen and Baker point to what Karam and Goranson are doing as reasons why funding the Tiger Scholarship Fund is important. “The fund is important in that it is our main funding source for scholarships, and it allows us to recruit great athletes who are also good citizens off the field and the leaders of tomorrow,” Bowen says. Karam began volunteering at St. Jude after transferring from Texas Tech two seasons ago. “Something didn’t feel right at Texas Tech and Memphis offered me an opportunity. I feel it was in God’s plan for me to come to Memphis.
“As college athletes, we are put on a platform and it is astonishing that we get such attention, but when I am down at St. Jude, you realize that these kids are battling for their lives. They are the true heroes. Football, it is just a game,” says the pre-law major. For Goranson, a senior psychology major, her interest in humanitarian efforts are more personal: her younger brother, Ryan, suffers from autism. She is organizing a U of M benefit softball game in April that is meant to create awareness about autism. “There are a lot of negative things out there about autism, but people need to know the good things that can come out of it,” she says. “If you are a parent or have a sibling with autism, you can learn to grow and thrive and have a normal family. “It is a personal thing to me. I am very close to my brother. He comes to all the games and all the girls on the team love him. As a team, we can be an advocate for autism awareness and make a difference.” Visit www.memphis.edu/development/tsf for information on the Tiger Scholarship Fund.
“The Tiger Scholarship Fund is important in that it is our main funding source for scholarships, and it allows us to recruit great athletes who are also good citizens off the field and the leaders of tomorrow.”

TIGER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Donors to the Tiger Scholarship Fund contributed $6.6 million in 2012-2013 toward student-athlete scholarships. As the primary fundraising arm for University of Memphis Athletics, Tiger Scholarship Fund finances the cost of athletic scholarships for more than 350 studentathletes every semester. This is achieved through the generous contributions and stewardship of fans, friends, family and alumni. These resources allow our student-athletes to meet the immediate challenges of competition and the classroom. Lifetime dividends are paid in terms of leadership and loyalty in our community.

BY THE NUMBERS: 2004 - 2013 The University of Memphis began the silent phase of the Empowering the Dream Centennial campaign in 2004. When the campaign concluded in June of this year, more than $256 million had been raised to support major growth in scholarships, professorships and such premier programs as the Helen Hardin Honors Program and Emerging Leaders.
The number of Professorships/Chairs of Excellence grew by 21 during the campaign for a current total of 73.
Six new and renovated academic facilities were funded through private support.
2,115 907 The number of students enrolled in the Helen Hardin Honors Program grew from 907 to 2,115 during the campaign, thanks, in part, to support from the Hardin family estate.

BOV taking more active role in University’s business With a changing landscape in higher education, U of M utilizes BOV members’ expertise. They have served as leaders of some of the most successful companies in the world: International Paper, First Tennessee, FedEx Corp. and the Kemmons Wilson Companies, to name just a few. And now, collectively, they are bringing their years of business experience to the ever-changing landscape of higher education with the ultimate goal of ensuring the future success of the University of Memphis. During recent town hall meetings, U of M Interim President Brad Martin, himself a former CEO of a major U.S. brand (Saks Inc.), said that for the University to survive and succeed, it needs to adopt more of a business approach – a revenue-based management system — to its operations. “The landscape of higher education has changed since I was in school,” Martin says. “We are getting fewer and fewer dollars from the state and there is a great deal more competition for students. “Our funding formula is dependent on enrollment figures and retention rates, so we need to grow those numbers. We need to look at running the University more from a business standpoint.” Who better to help implement these business models than members of the U of M’s Board of Visitors, a U of M presidential advisory board that was formed in 1989 and is made up of top business and civic leaders from the Mid-South? “Brad’s vision is that of getting our BOV much more involved in the business of the University rather than just sitting back getting committee reports,” says Charles Burkett, who served as a First Tennessee Bank executive for 38 years and is a former BOV chair. “Brad is a very visionary type of guy. He is able to take very complex business models and boil them down to what key 46

University of Memphis BOV chair Tom Watson and other board members are using their business expertise to improve service quality and other business operations at the U of M.
things are needed for success. That is exactly what he is doing here. “We are getting the BOV more engaged and acting as a full-fledged board, more involved in the decision-making. You look around at the board — it is made up of executives from some of the leading companies in the area, some of the leading experts — very successful leaders. They bring a lot to the table and their opinions, leadership and guidance are very important.” Burkett says many on the BOV are “just like myself.” “I don’t know how to run a college, but I know how to run a business and there are certain characteristics to running a college successfully that are the same as running a business successfully. We’re bringing a set of fresh eyes and ideas, and challenging some of the old ways of doing business.” Martin’s plan includes a set of eight priorities: building enrollment by roughly 1,700 in the next two years; increasing the graduation percentage for this year’s freshman class to 55 percent; developing a plan to ensure the University is providing the human capital needs of the top employers in the region; developing stronger community connections; creating a strategic
master plan for the Park Avenue Campus; bettering the U of M’s existing organizational structure; making the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences the best in the nation in producing teachers; and improving service quality for students. “We took Martin’s eight initiatives and are seeking out which of those initiatives BOV members have an interest in,” says Burkett, who chaired the University’s recent $256 million Empowering the Dream centennial capital campaign. Burkett says one key area is enrollment, which fell by about 1,500 students in the past year. Funding is directly tied to the number of students who are enrolled. Burkett says for that reason, much of the BOV’s early focus has been on students. “We see students as our customers, so we are dedicated to offering them the best services.” Burkett says that the U of M recently sent surveys to students and employees that address seven “service quality” areas, including recruitment, advising, housing/dining, financial aid, the bursar’s office, admissions and transfers. “It is important that we’re asking students what they feel is the level of service they
received in those areas and as they went through the enrollment process. We are going to take that information and we are going to use that as a benchmark on how we improve on that going forward. That is a major issue. “Students should see it as a positive message that we want to know what they think. You have heard stories of why people didn’t come here: ‘We didn’t feel like they really wanted us.’ We are looking at all those type things, to see how we recruit.” U of M Vice President for Student Affairs Rosie Phillips Bingham says, “The surveys focus on student satisfaction: advising, housing, recruitment and things tied to the entire enrollment process.” Bingham says that the staff in those areas is also being surveyed. “Everything they do should be done in a way to accomplish the highest level of service quality.”
Bingham says BOV member and International Paper executive Tom Kadian provided assistance with the service quality portion. IP is known for its excellent customer service practices. Burkett says another area the BOV has quickly moved on has to do with engaging area industry. “We have identified the largest businesses in our market and we’re sending out letters to the CEOs of these businesses that we want to meet with them so we can understand what their human capital needs are today and what they see those needs as being in the next 10 years. Our commitment is that we are going to listen to them and then develop a plan that enables the University to meet those needs. Their response is often that no one has ever reached out to them. We are inviting these companies to come and have their corporate meetings on campus. You’d be surprised how many of these CEOs have never set foot on our campus.” Another area the BOV is helping with
concerns retention rates. “There are a number of students who get to, for example, 90 hours, but don’t finish school. We are identifying these students and the reasons why they don’t finish and finding solutions to keep them in school.” These solutions may include offering incentives or financial assistance to students who may be on the verge of graduating but are unable to because of finances. Burkett says the BOV’s involvement is essential for survival. “You have enrollment that is down, a funding system that is changing and a very competitive environment,” Burkett says. “The business model of a university is changing, so we have to change to ensure our future. That is what this is all about.”
Board of Visitors members are taking a proactive role in helping address the eight priorities President Brad Martin has initiated.
