URSINUS COLLEGE Office of the Dean Dear Ursinus Colleagues and Friends, As we approach the beginning of a new year, I appreciate this time to reflect back on the past year – a historic year for the nation and for Ursinus as well. Last August we welcomed our largest class of incoming first-year students to campus: these 540 students also composed one of the most diverse and academically outstanding classes we have ever matriculated. They join a student body that has become increasingly active in life of the mind – through scholarly conferences and publications – and the lives of their fellow citizens – through community service and activism. A committed and accomplished faculty work tirelessly to serve as role models and mentors to these students in and out of the classroom. While below you will find select examples of the wonderful work these students and faculty have accomplished this past year – and the culture of achievement and inquiry they have developed on campus – I encourage you to review the entirety of this report to get a sense of the enormous breadth and depth of faculty and student achievement at Ursinus. CAMPUS VITALITY The achievement of our faculty and students can only take place in a setting that encourages and expects an active mind. It is therefore no surprise that the Ursinus campus has seen a wide array of visitors and events that have provoked and inspired over the past year. Creative writers like acclaimed poets Gerald Stern and Tracie Morris gave readings in the fall, while in the spring the campus was treated to an entertaining and enlightening talk by Jennifer Finney Boylan, noted transgendered science fiction writer and memoirist. Also in the spring, renowned conservationist Scott Weidensaul talked about his year-long exploration of "Wild America." A different kind of nature was discussed when political science scholar Arthur Melzer discussed "Why Nature Itself Wants You to Get a Liberal Arts Education." Certainly important parts of that liberal arts education at Ursinus are dance, theater, and art. The year kicked off with two great programs – one new and one returning favorite. The "Now on View" program featured multi-disciplinary arts projects on video and film in Jazzman's Café in Myrin Library every month, focusing on a different theme related to identity. The ninth annual Ursinus Fringe Festival featured a grant-supported one-man show by Associate Professor of Theater Domenick Scudera, as well as oneact plays, improvisational theater, and a faculty and student cabaret. In addition to the accomplished student performances in dance and theater, the Kaleidoscope also welcomed the multimedia work by University of Southern California Music Professor Ron McCurdy, "The Langston Hughes Project," to kick off the spring semester. The spring semester saw the Berman Museum of Art prepare for the construction of the new Henry and June Pfeiffer Wing by bringing works out of the vaults and into the open in the exhibition entitled "Work(s) in Progress," just one of a series of innovative and diverse exhibitions the museum presented this year. In front of the museum, family, friends, graduates, and faculty assembled for the 136th Ursinus Commencement, which featured an address from Dr. Phyllis Dennery, Chief of the Division of Neonatology and Newborn Services at The Children‘s Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr. Dennery used her own personal history and the metaphor of a garden to instill in students the need to honor the past while developing relationships and habits that will put them in good stead for their personal and professional life after Ursinus. STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT The immediate future of several Ursinus students was enhanced by garnering prestigious fellowships and scholarships. Kelsey Threatte '09 became the sixth Ursinus recipient of a Watson Fellowship. Kelsey will use her $25,000 from the Watson Foundation to travel through North Africa and the Middle East to learn more about the place and practice of Arabic women's poetry, a project that germinated during her study abroad in Cairo and took further shape as a Summer Fellow and Honors student. Amy Kiyota '09 was awarded a Fulbright grant to Japan to study the acclimation of foreign students in that country, but decided instead to take her place as the first Ursinus student to become a Philly Fellow, which will allow her to pursue her other interest in educational inequalities in America. "All-American" can be used to describe Amanda Leatherman '09, as she was named a member of the USA Today All-USA Academic

i


Second Team, in no small part because of her innovative Honors project that developed an alert system for monitoring online predators. Two Ursinus fellowship traditions continued this year as well. Devon Smith '11 became the latest Ursinus recipient of the St. Andrew's Society of Philadelphia's scholarship to attend a Scottish university during her junior year; indeed, Devon was awarded the McFarland Scholarship to the University of Edinburgh, the top award given by the society. Daniel Horowitz '12 became the fifth Ursinus recipient of the Kemper Scholarship, which will provide him with financial support during the academic year and during the summers after his sophomore and junior years as an intern in Chicago and Philadelphia. Hopefully a new tradition was started by Lindsay Budnick '11, who became the first Ursinus recipient of a Hollings Scholarship from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency, which will provide her with a paid summer internship at a NOAA facility as well as a financial award. The road to these prestigious fellowships and scholarships is paved with hard work by both student and faculty, and often includes independent research, either within the scope of an Independent Learning Experience or outside of it. This year once more saw the wide range of excellent work students are engaging in on their own – and the wide range of contexts in which they are sharing that work. Students like Christa Johnson '09 and Stephanie Weir '09 presented at conferences devoted to undergraduate research, while others presented at national professional conferences – like Kurt Sweely '09 who presented his research at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society. Other groups of students demonstrated at national competitions their knowledge and skills. Four seniors (David Kargman, Ann McShane, LiXiang Poncz, and Leah Sakowski) traveled to the University of Rochester's Simon Graduate School of Business to participate in the Early Leaders Case Competition, where Kargman's team earned the top prize. The Ursinus Model United Nations team traveled a bit further – to China – to demonstrate their diplomatic prowess, in the process learning much about both how the UN works and about Chinese culture. Many of these students used two important Ursinus programs to share and develop their work: the Celebration of Student Achievement (COSA) and Summer Fellows. CoSA celebrated its fourth anniversary and featured even more students presenting their work from every discipline on campus; this year, there was also increased participation from student clubs and organizations, which had the opportunity to share the great work they accomplish both on campus and in the community. Summer Fellows once more showed the diversity and quality of student work on campus, as seventy students from Anthropology to Theater spent the summer researching under the mentorship of over forty faculty mentors. Projects ranged from investigations into whether ugly criminals get harsher sentences to how we can best use neurocognitive tasks to diagnose OCD and ADHD to the connections between religion and the liberal arts in the history of Ursinus College. This year, the Philadelphia Inquirer featured the program as one of the premier summer research programs in the region, and the summer-ending symposium only reinforced the high level of work students completed. Summer Fellows is of course just one way in which students participate in an Independent Learning Experience; this past year, students also participated in a wide variety of study abroad and internship opportunities. Ninety-nine students participated in semester- or year-long abroad programs in both Ursinus-supported programs in Spain, Italy, and Germany and independent programs in such far-flung locales as New Zealand, India, China, Egypt, and South Africa. Fifty more students went on shorter programs, including groups to Costa Rica with Biology professors Ellen Dawley and Robert Dawley and to Senegal with French professor Frances Novack. This spring, Assistant Dean of International Education Melissa Hardin instituted a pre-departure orientation course to help students prepare for their study abroad experience—another way in which our international education program is expanding to suit the needs and ambitions of our students. Some of our study abroad programs also included internships, but most students – over 160 of them – participated in internships closer to campus: some very close to Collegevile, including at the historic Speaker's House and Eagleville Hospital, but also many in the surrounding area, including high-profile corporations like Merck, Pfizer, and UBS Financial Services, and top-notch health providers and institutions like Albert Einstein Medical Center, Thomas Jefferson University, and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. From both of these experiences, student receive valuable life experiences that conform to and confirm the college's mission to prepare them "to live creatively and usefully . . . in an interdependent world."

EXTERNAL RECOGNIT ION Such notice from national and international publications only testifies to the great work performed by Ursinus students and faculty. This work was at the top of the list of achievements identified by the team from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, which visited campus this year to complete their accreditation process. The team was initially skeptical of the seemingly overstated claims of student achievement and satisfaction made in our report to them; however, upon meeting with students and faculty, the team quickly realized how Ursinus had created an environment in which top-notch research and teaching could flourish. The team's report especially noted the care and attention provided to students by the faculty, as well as the ways in which faculty consistently involved students in their own work. I am proud of this work, as well as the work that was put into the entire accreditation process by our faculty and staff and led by the indefatigable and invaluable Annette Lucas, which resulted in the college being accredited for another ten years. In addition to this important external affirmation of our work, the college received a number of grants to continue and expand our efforts to enhance student achievement. Lynne Edwards, Media and Communication Studies, and April Kontostathis, Mathematics and Computer Science, received a $498,500 grant from the National Science Foundation Research for Undergraduate Institutions program for a project entitled, "Tracking Predators and Bullies via Chat Log Transcripts." The main goal of the project is to use technologies that monitor chat to help identify threatening situations and might prevent exploitation of minors or identify stalkers. This project continues and extends one started by the two faculty members with Amanda Leatherman '09, referred to above. In the arts, the department of Theater and Dance received a competitive American Masterpieces College Grant to reconstruct and perform the jazz dance piece, "Swing Concerto," by noted choreographer Danny Buraczeski, who will come to campus this fall to conduct master classes. The Berman Museum received a grant from Sovereign Bank for its outreach to the Lakeside Girls Academy in Fort Washington as part of its exhibitions, "Working Women: 19th Century Quilts from the Collection of Judy Roche" and "Tamar Stone and Christine LoFaso: Women‘s Bodies of/as Work." Working with the community continues to expand on campus, with the help of some external grants. Verizon awarded $10,000 to continue and expand the unique English-teaching program in which students tutor campus service workers in language skills. Such efforts led to the college being placed on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the highest recognition a college can receive for its commitment to service learning and community outreach. The college reached out to four other colleges (Goucher, McDaniel, Washington, Washington & Jefferson) to join it in applying for and then receiving a $300,000 grant from the Teagle Foundation to explore diversity inside and outside of the classroom. The three-year grant will employ an innovative assessment strategy, combining quantitative and qualitative elements, to assess and then enhance diversity initiatives on campus. The grant is unique in that it includes a student research component, providing funds for students to study issues of diversity under the mentorship of faculty. FACULTY RECOGNITION Of course, faculty mentorship is just one of the ways in which Ursinus faculty impact students' lives. It was my honor this year to announce that eight faculty members received tenure, ensuring that they will continue to mentor and serve as role models to Ursinus students for years to come. In the six years since Chris Aiken (and his colleague Cathy Young) were hired "to establish and develop a dance We were challenged to think critically and program at Ursinus," the program has grown beyond our flexibly, making creative, on-the-spot wildest expectations. Professor Aiken‘s specialties are decisions in cooperation with others, and dance improvisation and contact improvisation, and he has not intimated by the possibility of things been very effective in "attracting students to dance by not going as planned. example." In addition to teaching a wide range of dance courses, Professor Aiken is very successful in teaching CIE, in which his students note "his talents for getting students to discuss and to strengthen their writing skills." An outstanding contributor to the field of improvisational dance, Professor Aiken has international status as a master artist. His accomplishments include a

Commissioning Grant from the National Performance Network and his contributions to the "larger dialog about dance in written forms and in interviews." His external reviewers describe Professor Aiken as one of a handful of brilliant practitioners leading this paradigm shift for improvisation "from a kind of ‗dialogue‘ between two trained movers . . . to explore sensations and possibilities for dance . . . to [now] claim an audience." Not only has Professor Aiken contributed to the field of dance, but he continues to break new ground in the continuing development of improvisation. Described by students and faculty colleagues as an outstanding teacher, Mark Ellison‘s teaching style is The work I did in his class made me described as extremely lucid, engaging, and encouraging. stronger as a person and better as a He teaches challenging courses from a special section of chemist. General Chemistry for students with weak preparation to Physical Chemistry, a course that he is committed to making relevant to the "real world." His research on nanotubes, a "hot" area in chemistry that has been supported with funding from the ACS Petroleum Fund, has been published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Physical Chemistry with Ursinus College students as co-authors. Strongly committed to enhancing the teaching of chemistry, Professor Ellison has also published two articles in the peer-reviewed Journal of Chemical Education since fall 2005. One of his external reviewers emphasized that "the fact that he combines solid experimental work with computational methods is significant in this day and age, not only for the success of the research, but also for the experience of the students working with him." A gifted, skilled and enthusiastic musician and scholar, a superb and passionate ensemble instructor/conductor, a Professor Gaines is a vibrant, intelligent, well-organized and effective classroom teacher, and an and entertaining teacher who wants exemplary campus citizen, Holly Gaines makes a nothing more but to spread her love of difference to the College, her profession and our students in music to her students. many meaningful ways. An energetic, enthusiastic, and effective teacher, she has successfully taught CIE as well as music courses, mentored Summer Fellows, enhanced the quality of the music course offerings, and created new programs, such as Music at Noon, to foster student achievement and enhance the arts on campus. Under her superb leadership as the conductor of the Jazz Ensemble and Wind Ensemble, the students have been able to perform more sophisticated and challenging music. She also successfully implemented a Music Lesson program to enable students to continue to enhance their skills and enjoyment of music. As an active scholar and a superb performing musician, described by her external reviewers as "an exceptional solo performer," playing "with much finesse," and exhibiting "extraordinary" musical breadth, she has been increasingly in demand for saxophone recitals and presentations about her recent Early Leave project on Kathryne Thomson. An incredible teacher and engaged scholar, Leah Joseph is unusually dedicated to making the world a better place. Leah Joseph is the best teacher I ever According to her students, she is successful in engaging had. . . .[She is] dedicated to influencing students in her courses in Environmental Studies because the lives of her students by helping them "she expects a lot of her students, but works hard herself, to succeed. making her students want to match her effort for the class." Her Faculty Review Committee described how she "focused her scholarship largely on one project, her work with the Antarctic research consortium ANDRILL." In this way, "She has been successful, undertaking continuing work of a substantive nature as an active part of an international research community and involving Ursinus students in that work in meaningful and—for both her and the students-- productive ways." External reviewers of her scholarship stated that her "papers are of high quality and they are published in very well-respected journals." Moreover, "ANDRILL is a major research effort and the fact that she was successful twice reflects the high quality of the proposed research and the reviewers‘ confidence in her ability to conduct the research and bring it to publication." In order to challenge her students to do their best work and prepare them well for graduate school or work opportunities, April Kontostathis taught fourteen different courses in ten

semesters as she developed a robust Computer Science curriculum at Ursinus. At the same time, she carried her fair share (or more) of service responsibilities at the departmental and college levels. In addition, very collegial and knowledgeable, she has collaborated with faculty colleagues and their students in other disciplines to assist them with research projects. One such recent collaboration about online predators has resulted in an Honors student presenting her research at national meetings. Professor Kontostathis also regularly works with Computer Science research students and three of her students have earned distinguished honors for their work. An external reviewer described Professor Kontostathis as "an extremely productive researcher with more than ten articles appearing as book chapters, peer-reviewed conference articles and peer-reviewed journal articles. Impressively, she has published not only in top-tier research conferences … but also at conferences more highly respected for their role in undergraduate education … a clear demonstration of [her] dedication to both high-quality research and pedagogy." In sum, the reviewer noted that "Dr. Kontostathis has shown that she can not only teach at the high level required by students at Ursinus, but she can run a research program that would be the envy of junior faculty at top-flight universities." Dr. Kozusko loves his subject, gives voice A Shakespeare scholar, Matt Kozusko has "produced a to the passing thoughts that may inspire body of work that is substantive in both scope and quality." students to see works in a new light or to One of his external reviewers stated that "[O]n the national experiment with ideas of their own, and scene, his work is widely read—enough so that it was cited gives personal attention to each of his in the Shakespeare Association of America plenary students. session last spring." Another concluded that "if I had to quantify his place in the profession relative to his status as an advanced assistant professor, he is certainly among ten ‗ones to watch‘ in the field at large." Professor Kozusko is not only a superb scholar, but also a superior teacher. In describing Professor Kozusko‘s "great talents in the classroom," his Faculty Review Committee, wrote "His intellect ual passion captures their attention and inspires their own enthusiasm, and his erudition earns their admiration. He never ‗dumbs down‘ his lessons, but rather uses examples and references drawn from the students‘ own cultural milieu to help negotiate both unfamiliar terms and complex ideas." Professor Kozusko is also an excellent campus citizen, distinguishing himself by his active participation in faculty searches to help recruit and hire outstanding candidates and by his superb service on the Faculty Development Committee where his keen observation skills, perceptive insights, and experience as a journal reviewer facilitate the Committee‘s review of faculty proposals for funding. The external reviewers for Kelly Sorensen‘s scholarly work were effusive in praising him. One emphasized that Dr. Sorensen is one of the best "Sorensen is that rare philosopher who is extremely good at professors I have ever had. both" moral theory and applied ethics. "Each of the papers breaks new ground. . . . Part of his great gift is taking a simple but intriguing thought experiment or real life dilemma, and then working up a refined set of philosophical observations." Described by his students as having an exceptional ability to teach difficult material, Professor Sorensen always "manages to make class discussions engaging" and his "teaching methods encourage shy students to speak up and share their opinions." He "continues the pursuit of "liberal arts goals" outside of class, spending many hours meeting with students in his office. He is deeply committed to fostering student achievement, and recently five of the papers submitted by his students for presentation an undergraduate philosophy conference were accepted. As a visionary, Cathy Young (along with her colleague Chris Aiken) played a key role in the development of dance She is a true inspiration to me, and I at Ursinus. Recently, she received wonderful recognition believe the growth I have experienced with the award of a two-year Dance USA/American over the past four years is due largely to Masterpieces grant. Dedicated to outstanding teaching, Professor Young. Professor Young has "maintained a consistently positive trajectory in her teaching." Not only has she "successfully challenged her students to work physically and intellectually … and think in new ways," but she continues to enhance her teaching with more written assignments in dance courses as well as in CIE. Professor Young is not only a performer, but also a choreographer; in

v


the past six years, she has choreographed eight professional dance pieces in addition to twenty student pieces for our campus. One of her external reviewers wrote that Professor Young works in jazz, "where there are few artists at her level of seriousness, intellectual acuity, and choreographic depth. . . . Cathy is truly head and shoulders above the rest." Another reviewer stated that she has "wide artistic training and experience, and a developed aesthetic. . . . Her expertise in many other techniques and dance forms . . . sets her apart in ability and choreographic possibilities." Another succinctly described Professor Young as "an artist of the highest caliber, respected by her peers, loved by her students, and engaged in the world." These newly tenured faculty members join a group of tenured faculty who are renowned for their research, their teaching, and their mentorship of students; every Commencement we honor three faculty members who go above and beyond what is expected in these areas. This year, Professor of Biology Ellen Dawley received the Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching. Students remarked on her passion and knowledge, but one noted that Professor Dawley understood that the best teaching consists of "not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire." Professor Dawley is also a previous recipient of the Laughlin Professional Achievement Award, which recognizes scholarly achievement; this year's recipient was Associate Professor of Psychology Gabrielle Principe. Professor Principe's work in childhood memory is not only rigorous but immanently pertinent to the world outside of Ursinus. In addition to recognition from her peers for her research, which often involves Ursinus students, she was recently awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health to continue her important work. The important work of advising students is recognized by the H. Lloyd Jones, Jr. Award for Distinguished Teaching and Mentoring; this year, Associate Professor of Modern languages, Matthew Mizenko received this award for his outstanding work with students as they mature into scholars and into adults. Indeed, one student remarked, Professor Mizenko "has changed my life and the way that I approach academics not only through his classes, but through his careful mentorship. However, what I learned from [him] was not merely academic, but he also helped me mature as a person and gain the confidence I need to succeed." Joining these distinguished faculty members in their efforts to help students succeed in myriad ways are a new group of seven tenure-track faculty in the departments of Anthropology and Sociology, Biology, Chemistry, Education, History, Modern Languages, and Philosophy and Religious Studies. These new teachers, mentors, and researchers will join a cadre of faculty who are all committed to a group of students who consistently impress me with their energy, intellect, and thoughtfulness. I look forward to another year of seeing both groups work together to make Ursinus an even more engaging and exciting college. Sincerely,

Vice President for Academic Affairs Dean of the College
