Please drop us a letter or e-mail telling us what you like or don’t like about your Ichabod magazine. We want to hear from you.

FROM the PRESIDENT Universities provide many benefits to their communities. Borne out of a necessity to create an educated citizenry, universities and other postsecondary institutions seek to provide individuals with opportunities to match their natural gifts with societal needs. It is our privilege to provide a gateway to this preferred future for Kansans and others from around the world. This mission is highlighted in Washburn’s strategic plans. We are working closely with our community leadership to identify needs and then create new educational programs. Examples include the School of Law Centers for Excellence, our allied health programs in occupational health assistant and sonography, the master of science in nursing degree, the School of Business’ certificate in entrepreneurship, bioscience initiatives in the College of Arts and Sciences and the industrial maintenance program at Washburn Tech. This issue highlights the School of Nursing, which has nearly doubled its undergraduate student enrollment during the past decade and has more than 100 students enrolled in the master’s program to become nurse practitioners or clinical nurse leaders. Recently, the School was awarded a federal grant to begin the Transatlantic Dual Degree in Nursing Program, one of only two U.S. nursing schools to receive the award in seven years. I hope you enjoy reading more about TADD and the upcoming proposal for a doctorate in nursing practice degree. Connections with the community also occur through our Washburn Alumni Association and the Washburn University Foundation. These highly successful organizations provide alumni and their families with financial support, social connections and great ongoing communication about Washburn. Always busy, the Alumni Association hosted more than 50 events in 2010. Since Washburn was founded in 1985, the value of teaching basic and advanced knowledge in the sciences and humanities has persevered. At Washburn, we will continue to provide high quality general education while emphasizing our relevancy and value by producing graduates who meet the needs of a changing work force.

3 From the President


Washburn School of Nursing:

the next decade of progress A

new initiative in international education debuted at Washburn with the fall 2010 semester. Three nursing students attended classes at Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and five European nursing students – one from Queen’s University, two from Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences in Finland and two from Szeged University in Hungary – began a year of study at Washburn.

The student exchanges are being funded by a hard-won $420,000 Transatlantic Double Degree in Nursing Project grant, which takes a giant step beyond traditional student exchange programs by providing nursing students the opportunity to receive two degrees in a streamlined process. Washburn students in the exchange program will receive baccalaureate nursing of health and science degrees from one of the three participating European Union universities, and EU students will receive nursing or health science degrees from Washburn. The graduates will begin their careers with two nursing degrees, one international and one from their home country, enabling them to work almost anywhere in the world. Monica Scheibmeir, dean of Washburn’s School of Nursing, calls this the forefront of understanding global education. “Early in their professional careers, graduates from this program will be distinguished in their understanding of global health and broad social issues,” she said. The foundation of this opportunity was laid in the late 1990s when Washburn’s School of Nursing received a grant for a four- to six-week student exchange program with a consortium of universities in Europe and the United States. The friendly relations formed among the professors, deans and administrators of the respective 5 Washburn School of Nursing

universities was an unexpected benefit. Even after the grant ended, Queen's University and Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences continued to exchange students with Washburn. In 2006, Cynthia Hornberger, then dean of Washburn’s School of Nursing, received a telephone call from the dean of Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences. Students from European Union countries participating in the Transatlantic Double Degree Project (L to R) Minna Masalin, Finland; Caoimhe Clifford, Northern Ireland; Anita Lakatos, Hungary; Dezsö Seteny, Hungary; and Moona Ylikoski, Finland.

“She said they would like us to consider applying for a grant through the U.S. Department of Education, and they would apply for an equivalent grant through the EU. It was the same funding source as our previous grant (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education), but a larger initiative,” Hornberger said. (Hornberger currently serves as special assistant to President Farley.) Applying for the grant was a major challenge and required many hours of work. Beginning in 2006, nursing professors Ellen Carson and Hornberger worked on the grant application for the U.S. Department of Education while deans and international coordinators in Finland, Northern Ireland and Hungary applied for the European Union grant. They submitted applications in 2007 and again in 2008, but were not selected. Finally, after submitting for the third time, the grant was awarded in 2009. As soon as news of the grant was received, members of Washburn’s nursing faculty and the deans and international coordinators in Europe began a series of meetings to plan a common curriculum for four core courses. They faced many content and methods issues, including discussions about how to handle differences in student evaluation and testing. For example, in Finland, students are required to write a thesis, but students write essay tests in Hungary and Ireland. Multiple choice tests are standard at Washburn, partly because the National Council Licensure Examination, a requirement to practice

as a registered nurse in the United States, contains only multiple choice questions. Even the standard American research paper posed issues. Debbie Isaacson, assistant professor, nursing, teaches one of the classes in which the five EU students enrolled. Isaacson requires students to write a research paper. The EU students received a slightly different assignment – to compare and contrast the way an ethical issue in nursing is handled in their home country with the way it is handled in the United States. Isaacson requires her American students to follow the American Psychological Association format, but the EU students were allowed to use other formats. “We decided to allow this difference since APA is not mandated for State boards,” Isaacson said. In addition to one-year student exchanges, the TADD grant includes funding for faculty exchanges. Between 2011 and 2013, nine Washburn faculty members are slated to teach for two weeks at one of the three participating EU universities, and nine EU faculty members will teach for two weeks at Washburn. Isaacson hopes to be among the first faculty participants. Washburn students will have the opportunity to study at a combination of two of the three participating EU universities, and the EU students will have a similar rotation. This past summer, Samantha Grief, Manhattan, Kan.; Adriana Rollins, Topeka; and Rosemaria Magallanez, Emporia, Kan., studied six weeks in Finland and then went on to Northern Ireland to study fall 2010 and spring 2011. In all,

24 Washburn nursing students will get an opportunity to study in Europe, with a similar number of Europeans studying at Washburn. School of Nursing staff and faculty who assist students in the TADD program include (L to R) Louisa Schurig, student adviser; Mary Ellen McBride, assistant professor; and Cynthia Hornberger, professor and special assistant to the president. Bottom: Currently studying in Northern Ireland are (L to R) Adriana Rollins, Topeka; Samantha Grief, Manhattan, Kan.; and Rosemaria Magallanez, Emporia, Kan.


Nursing in transition:

2012 and beyond (L to R) Karen Fernengel and Monica Scheibmeir are among the School of Nursing faculty working to develop a doctor of nursing practice degree.

Development of a doctor of nursing practice degree is one of the top priorities listed in Washburn’s 150 Forward strategic plan for the School of Nursing. “It is a natural progression for the nursing profession,” said Karen Fernengel, professor, nursing, who is leading a task force on developing a DNP program at Washburn. “Our nurse practitioners who are master’s prepared see they would be enriched by a broadened academic preparation.” Monica Scheibmeir, dean of the School of Nursing, said nursing educators are recognizing the need for a practice doctorate in nursing option in addition to research-focused doctoral programs. “We are responding to a call to action from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, which represents more than 700 nursing schools,” Scheibmeir said. A 2005 AACN position statement called for moving the current level of preparation for nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, certified nurse-midwives and certified registered nurse anesthetists from a master’s to doctorate program. The authors of the document noted that nursing is moving in the direction of other health professions in the transition to the DNP. Medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, psychology, physical therapy and audiology all require or offer practice doctorates. 7 7 Nursing in Transition

Unique to Washburn’s DNP curriculum is the inclusion of five master of business administration courses offered through a partnership with the School of Business. “We will be one of the pioneers with an emphasis on entrepreneurship,” Fernengel said. “Traditionally, health care providers have a dearth of business preparation. Our graduates will have an appreciation of finance and marketing and understand how to start, run and maintain a business,” she said, noting that the program’s 15 business credit hours could be applied to a master of business administration degree. “They will be half way to an MBA,” she said. Fernengel said the nursing task force will present its proposal for the new DNP program to Washburn’s Faculty Senate and general faculty in 2011. The proposal will recommend beginning a three-year DNP program in 2012 that will admit master’s prepared family and adult nurse practitioners as well as nurses who have master’s degrees and would like to obtain their family or adult nurse practitioner education along with a DNP degree. A fiveyear DNP program that will admit those holding bachelor of science degrees in nursing is projected to start in 2015.

Looking into the future


elivery of superior and rigorous technical programs tops the strategic plan recently adopted by the Washburn Institute of Technology.

“Our ultimate goal is to continue to provide highly qualified faculty and staff at every turn so the student's experience is the very best we can offer,” said Roxanne Kelly. Kelly joined Kaw Area Technical School as its first dean in 2009, six months after the school affiliated with Washburn University. Located at 5724 SW Huntoon St., the school, now the Washburn Institute of Technology, offers 25 different programs in the areas of construction, health care, human service, technology and transportation. The Washburn Tech faculty and staff followed a strategic planning process similar to that of Washburn University. In early spring 2010, four teams were formed to gather input from faculty, staff, students, community members and 150 members of program advisory boards. The strategic plan, with a revised mission statement and four strategic elements, was approved by the Washburn Board of Regents in September.

13 Washburn Institute of Technology

Tré jor Hopkins, Topeka, a student in the culinary arts program, slices a carrot during a food preparation class.

Programs The first element calls for a strategy to deliver superior technical programs. Included in this are such goals as increasing enrollment, scholarships, support of non-traditional students and adding online courses. The other three strategic elements focus on students, external relationships and resources.

Students The first goal of the Element II is the increase of enrollment to 1500 FTE by 2012, including day, evening and weekend programs. Corresponding goals include increasing the rate of retention and program completions and enhancing the diversity of enrollment.

External relationships The third strategic element calls for strengthening external relationships, and this includes plans for increased partnering with Washburn University. “We want to see more students than ever taking advantage of the associate degree options at Washburn,” Kelly said. Willie Dunlap, dean, School of Applied Studies, said Washburn began granting credit hours to students completing KATS programs as far back as 1985. Today students at Washburn Tech can move seamlessly from certificate programs into associate degree programs at Washburn University. For example, 30 credit hours from the Washburn Tech electronic technology program can be applied to a 62-credit hour associate of applied studies degree in industrial technology. Other examples include 24 credit hours in culinary arts transferring into an associate of arts degree in food service, or 32 hours in surgical technology transferring into an associate of science degree in surgical technology. Washburn’s School of Applied Studies also offers a bachelor’s degree in technology administration for those completing technology-based associate degrees. “They have the equipment and laboratories for the technical courses we don’t have, and we provide the general education courses, so we utilize resources from each campus to the best of our ability,” Dunlap said. “This sharing of resources provides students with quality general and technical education, making them more employable and better at what they do.”

Resources The expansion and enhancement of human, physical and financial resources is the fourth element of the plan. “As we face budget cuts, we must strive to keep tuition as affordable as possible and keep the most qualified faculty and staff we can,” Kelly said. “The dedication of our faculty and staff to put this plan into motion has been unparalleled in my experience. I see only great things coming, strengthened by our partnership with Washburn.”

Students have considerable opportunity to gain hands on experience in classes at Washburn Tech. (Top to bottom) Luke Smarker, Tonganoxie, Kan., collision repair; Eric Pahmahmie, Topeka, welding; and Mike Estudillo, Topeka, and Kenna Mahner, Hoyt, Kan., graphics technology.

17 Alumni News

Bill Marshall, ba ’61, Colorado Springs, Colo.: Alumni ambassador Encouraging high school students to consider attending Washburn has become a rewarding way to serve my alma mater. I am also a member of the Washburn Alumni Association board of directors. In early 2010, I met with Richard Liedtke, executive director of enrollment management, and later with Morgan Boyack, director of admissions, in regard to becoming an admissions representative for Washburn in Colorado since Colorado’s continuing growth in high school enrollment makes it a prime place for out-of-state recruitment. From September to December 2010, I attended numerous high school college fairs and had access to approximately 40,000 students. At these fairs I met many outstanding young men and women. The only problem has been that they have never heard of Washburn, and this spawned a wide range of questions, including “Where is Washburn?” “Are you a four-year school?” “Do you have sports?” “Do you have ROTC?” There were plenty of parents asking questions too: “How much does Washburn cost?” “Can my son or daughter get resident tuition?” “What kind of residential living does Washburn have?” “Is it secure?” As I networked with other college admissions representatives, I learned that Washburn is very well positioned due to its small class sizes, emphasis on professors (instead of graduate students) teaching, international exchange programs, master’s degree programs, and a key feature - the great campus life and learning experience. A number of parents told me they wished they had gone to smaller schools and that they were very interested in what Washburn had to offer academically and socially. There have been lighthearted moments. At one fair, a mother and daughter were both interested in Washburn and asked a lot of questions. When I told them the residence

halls are close to all classes and activities, the mother turned to her daughter and said, “See? You don’t even need a car!” As the local admissions adviser, my job has been made much easier with the new Washburn recruitment folder. It is compact, yet contains information to answer the majority of questions and has attractive photographs of campus life. Many students cruise the Internet checking out various schools, and the updated Washburn website is a valuable tool. We have placed information about Washburn as well as a link to Washburn’s website on the Colorado American Legion Boys State website. This gives us access to hundreds of high school junior boys we otherwise would not reach. During the next few months, I will be meeting with students and counselors at individual schools. Obviously, this is not a one-year project, but I hope, through making our presence known in Colorado, we will see more students from this state at Washburn. I would like to hear from the approximately 1,000 Washburn alumni in Colorado and welcome your help spreading the good news about Washburn.

Pete Goering • Meritorious Service Goering served nearly 40 years as sports editor, managing editor and executive editor of the Topeka Capital-Journal and was Kansas Sportswriter of the Year five times from 1976 through 1994. He also was a member of the Ichabod Scholarship Fund and a media member of the Washburn Athletics Hall of Fame committee.

Setting a new standard At age 23 with roughly one and a half years of work experience under her belt, Billie Jean Bergmann’s demographics are not that of a typical scholarship fund donor. However, as a 2009 School of Business graduate, Bergmann, Topeka, is setting a new standard for recent graduates. Bergmann is leading by example in creating an endowed scholarship fund for business students. The youngest known Washburn graduate to establish a fund of this kind, Bergmann realizes she is the exception to the rule when it comes to contributions from younger alumni. Due to the weight of paying off student loans, starting a career and beginning a family, many young alumni are reluctant to make gifts to their alma mater immediately following graduation. “Part of the reason I wanted to make this gift was to help inspire gifts from other young alums like me,” said Bergmann. “There is an urgent need to provide continued scholarship support for Washburn students, and we have a responsibility to help provide the same type of assistance many of us received as students.” Many younger alumni tend to wait until their mid-30s to make a gift to their alma mater. However, with the rising costs of obtaining an education and decreasing support from local and state governments, gifts of any size from alumni and friends of all ages are becoming more and more essential to Washburn students. The financial challenges of obtaining an education are fresh in Bergmann’s mind. Her scholarship will help students pursuing a degree in business become more attainable. “The hands-on learning opportunity I experienced at Washburn truly made an impact on my success after graduation. Now in the work force, I am even more appreciative of the exceptional education I received,” she said. Gifts to support students are crucial in providing scholarship assistance, faculty and staff support and maintaining the day-to-day operations of the university. Regardless of age, support from alumni and friends make a difference daily. “My overall experience at Washburn was made possible because of gracious donors. I felt giving back was the least I could do in return,” said Bergmann.

Kris Rinne

Kris Rinne, ba ’76

For Kris Rinne, ba ‘76, Atlanta, Ga., Washburn University is not just a name on her diploma, it's the institution that taught her life skills preparing her for a successful future. Rinne, a former Lady Blues basketball player, graduated summa cum laude in mathematics. Her original plan was to teach high school math; however, a promising job opportunity at Southwestern Bell, now AT&T, changed her career path. In 2006, the College of Arts & Sciences honored Rinne as an Alumni Fellow for her accomplishments with Cingular Wireless, an AT&T subsidiary. At the time, Rinne was the chief technology officer for Cingular and received the “Wireless Week” Excellence Award in Emerging Technology. Now, celebrating her 34-year anniversary with AT&T, Rinne is the senior vice president of architecture and planning. She credits much of her success to the education she received at Washburn. “I have gotten this far because of what I learned. Washburn University rounded me out to be everything I needed to be and prepared me for my future,” Rinne said. Coming from a small high school in Bern, Kan., where women’s basketball was not offered, Rinne was excited to attend a university that presented opportunities for females to participate in athletics and where she could obtain a premier education. She credits her time with the Lady Blues basketball team for teaching her invaluable lessons in teamwork, discipline, leadership and accountability. Since graduating, Rinne has been a loyal supporter of both academics and athletics at Washburn. “I give back to Washburn because of everything it has given and taught me,” she said.

Steve Martin

Steve Martin, bsn ’79

Steve Martin, bsn ’79, Omaha, Neb., thought a college education would be a difficult challenge to achieve. However, his anticipated future changed once he was offered academic and athletic scholarships to Washburn. Martin said the discipline and responsibility he learned while playing football at Washburn helped him realize his potential. “I didn’t see myself in one particular role anymore. I had options that I had never even dreamt of having and the desire to go after them,” he said. Playing football at Washburn gave Martin a great deal of perseverance and the courage he needed to pursue his dreams, which also meant changing his major to nursing. Originally a biology major, Martin was inspired by the innovative direction taken by Alice Young, dean of the School of Nursing at the time. Shortly after graduation, he joined classmate Jim Slover, bsn ’79, Topeka, in the operations and development of Health Check, an entrepreneurial enterprise. Martin’s entrepreneurship skills and drive inspired him to do more in the health care field. He went on to work for the Upjohn Co. and also founded a high-tech home health care business. He was hired by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska in 1986 and now serves as president and chief executive officer. He is also on the board of trustees at Washburn University Foundation. Martin gives back to Washburn University, providing assistance for students who face financial difficulties, just as he once did, and to support faculty members who inspire students on a daily basis to pursue their passions. “If Washburn hadn’t provided me with my scholarships, I wouldn’t be where I am today. That is something to give back to,” he said. For more information on how you can impact the life of a Washburn student, please contact Washburn University Foundation at (785) 670-4483 or visit

giving back: Sam Crow Back in 1969, Sam Crow, ba ’73, Springfield, Mo., was just your average high school student, dreaming of everything but college. While furthering his education was the farthest thing from his mind, there was still a glimmer of desire in his heart to make something more of himself. Growing up in Topeka, Crow was familiar with Washburn University. After much contemplation, Crow enrolled at Washburn and began his transformational journey. Within his first semester of classes, Crow’s eyes were opened to the endless opportunities he had in life with the help of a college education. He enrolled in theatre, organic chemistry, physics, ROTC, pre-law and pre-med classes. “Something happened to me at Washburn to set into motion a lot of things that would have never occurred otherwise. I became interested in everything and wanted to learn more and more,” said Crow. By 1973, Crow earned a bachelor of arts in psychology, but he wasn’t finished yet. His experiences in ROTC at Washburn influenced him to join the Air Force. Similar to his mindset while at Washburn, Crow still yearned for more knowledge during his time in the Air Force. “I loved the feeling of endless opportunities that Washburn had given me. At that time in my life, it gave me the desire to go back to school once again,” he said. While in the Air Force, Crow attended Chapman University in California and earned a master’s degree in counseling psychology. In 1985, Crow graduated from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences with a degree in osteopathic medicine. Since he first set foot in a Washburn classroom, Crow’s desire to continue to learn has never faltered. Currently, he serves as a part-time medical director and family practice doctor at St. John’s Health System in Springfield, Mo. His career requires him to keep pace with what is new and changing in his field. Because of their belief in the power of giving back, Crow and his wife, Cheryl (Browne) Crow, ba ’73, have established an endowed scholarship fund at Washburn to assist non-traditional students pursuing degrees in medicine. The Crows also want to help students see their potential and talent, just like the professors at Washburn did for Sam when he was a student. Crow credits much of his success to his experiences at Washburn University. “My time at Washburn really set me on fire for my future and opened my eyes to the possibilities out there. Who knows what is next for me?”

Impacting Students Through Their Words ESPN analyst Dick Vitale, Olympic athlete Jackie Joyner Kersie, author Greg Mortenson, JanSport co-founder Skip Yowell, filmmaker and social activist Morgan Spurlock: these are just a sampling of the transformational speakers Washburn students have had a chance to hear the past four years through the Washburn Student Government Association Lecture Series.

Most recently, Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons, a pioneering musician, accomplished author, fashion mogul and star of MTV’s hit reality show “Run’s House” visited campus. Simmons brought a message emphasizing the importance of putting family first, getting a good education and being true to oneself. Each year, WSGA leaders invite enlightening and transforming

speakers to campus as a service to students, faculty and staff and the Topeka community. The lecture series was established in 2007 with the objective of bringing in high-profile speakers with messages intended to entertain, as well as educate and challenge the community to think on a global level. Speakers are chosen from a wide range of backgrounds to appeal to a diverse audience.

Students and staff surround reality show star Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons after his appearance.

25 Impacting Students Through Their Words

Students welcome filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (center) to campus.

“We see a different crowd at each lecture, which is ultimately our goal,” said Caley Onek, WSGA president. “We feel it is beneficial to provide a variety of speakers so we can reach out to a range of different audiences. We want to bring something new and exciting to campus each time we put on a lecture. We want to put Washburn on the map,” she said. With ambitions such as these, it’s not difficult to see why the lecture series has had such a positive response. Other past speakers are: • Greg Mortenson, author of the book “Three Cups of Tea” and “Stones into Schools” • Ron Clark, also known as the American Educator • Jackie Joyner Kersie, Olympic athlete • Kip Yowell, co-founder of JanSport

• Ishmael Beah, author of “A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier” • Patch Adams, founder of the Gesundheit Institute and portrayed by Robin Williams in the movie “Patch Adams” • Mark Witacre, former vice president of ADM, turned informant. He was played by actor Matt Damon in the movie “The Informant.” • Morgan Spurlock, filmmaker and social activist who is best known for his documentary “Super Size Me” The first speaker of 2011 was wildlife biologist and host on "Animal Planet," Jeff Corwin, who tapped into yet another audience base. WSGA’s ability to bring these nationally known speakers to campus is possible due to private support from alumni and friends of Washburn University. Contributions from local

organizations and foundations have played a large role in the group’s ability to draw big names to campus. “The Washburn Lecture Series would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and donors,” Onek said. “Their generosity allows us to bring high-quality speakers with big name recognition to our campus. “We want to create memories for Washburn students so they will look back and say, ‘That was a really awesome experience and Washburn made that happen for me.’ Private support helps make this possible.”

Washburn University School of Business ‘Best’ by The Princeton Review for fourth year For the fourth consecutive year, the Washburn University School of Business has been named an outstanding business school by The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features the school in the 2011 edition of “The Best 300 Business Schools” (Random House/Princeton Review). “The Best 300 Business Schools” has two-page profiles of the schools and their master of business administration programs, with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. In the profile on Washburn, the Princeton Review editors noted that the Washburn MBA program cited a good peer network, small classes and engaged and accessible faculty as assets.

The Wilper Family of Garnett, Kan., was recognized as the 2010 Family of the Year during halftime on Family Day Nov. 6. (L to R): President Jerry Farley; Cadence, Bill, Dianne and Matthew Wilper; and Susan Farley.

family of the year Matt Wilper, a senior majoring in sociology and son of Bill and Dianne Wilper, Garnett, Kan., said he nominated his family for the 2010 Family of the Year honor because Washburn has become a tradition for his family. “Washburn has become a major part of my family, and we would not be the same loving, close family without it,” he wrote.

The Wilper family became active at Washburn in 2000 when Matt’s brother, James Wilper, ba ’05, London, England, joined the cheer squad. The family fell in love with Washburn football as they attended games to watch James cheer, and they haven’t missed many home games since. Matt’s sister, Clara Wilper, ba ’09, Lake Jackson, Texas, began attending Washburn in 2004, and Matt joined her in 2007. Matt is involved in Future

Alumni Network, serves as president of Washburn Wellness Club and Sociology/Anthropology Club and was inducted into Mortar Board. This spring will end the Wilper stint at Washburn, but Matt hopes that his niece, Cadence Wilper, who attended the Family Day football game with Matt and his parents, will follow in his family’s footsteps.

a few of the many Baili Zhang, m ed ’92, director of international programs, isn’t surprised when he meets a student at Washburn who shares his last name. After all, the Chinese name Chang (Zhang) is the most common family name in the world. The record 85 students hailing from China/Hong Kong this academic year brought more Zhangs than usual to the campus. “Many people think they are all my relatives,” he said of the 10 student Zhangs on campus.

Students build video game to promote Topeka Students enrolled in the art department’s interactive art and gaming class used virtual world zombies to promote a real-world project. The project, which will be ongoing for the next two years, is a video game developed by students enrolled in the class taught by Azyz Sharafy, associate professor, art. The game will challenge players to overcome a variety of obstacles, including zombies, to “win” a vision of a new, revitalized downtown Topeka. The idea of fitting his class curriculum with the Heartland Visioning project to revitalize Topeka seemed like a win-win situation to Sharafy. “Washburn has such a deep link to the Topeka community,” said Sharafy, pointing out that Washburn’s President Jerry Farley is a Heartland Visioning co-founder. “The students are excited about doing this. It’s good for Washburn, for Topeka and for the students. It gives social value to their class work and prepares them for their future careers.”

Early History of the

Washburn Alumni Association by Martha Imparato On June 6, 1885, a group of eight recent graduates (five women and three men) met at the home of Mary and Helen “Nellie” Sherrill to form the Washburn College Alumni Association. George Perry, who was selected as the temporary president, recognized the constitution committee and the group adopted what that committee presented. They elected officers, but postponed the election of the executive committee four days, when many alumni would be on campus for commencement activities. At the June 10 meeting in the Rice Hall chapel, the Rev. John Morgan, financial agent, spoke about the influence of alumni on the success of the college. The next order of business was passage of a resolution that each member “endeavor to contribute a certain sum each year for the benefit of Washburn College.” At future meetings, Association members would vote on how they wanted the fund to be used. The secretary was charged to keep a record of the address of each member. Thus began a long tradition of holding the annual meeting in June during commencement week. At the next annual meeting, held at President Peter McVicar’s residence, members of the WCAA welcomed the four members of the class of 1886. They elected officers for the year and then voted that their annual funds be used to defray the expenses of some students, to be chosen by President McVicar and the Association president. In other business, they established that members not planning to attend could receive minutes and vote for president by mail. The thick, handwritten book of minutes housed in Washburn’s archives is fascinating to read, although some of the handwriting is difficult to decipher. The first 41 Washburn Alumni Association

constitution, amendments and bylaws are recorded in this book, as well as a list of the graduates for each year through 1913, with their address changes. Other Alumni Association records held by the archives include a commencement attendance record, subsequent constitutions, publications, numerous clippings and photographs. A small treasurer’s book for the College Alumnae Club is one interesting item. Listing members and expenses for 1912-16, this women’s group seems to be separate from the WCAA and was perhaps a social organization in the Topeka area. The WCAA published its first alumni directory in the Helianthus yearbook ’96, and subsequent directories were published periodically as an issue of the Washburn College Bulletin, published by the College. The last Bulletin directory was published in the 1929, and the next directory was not published by the Alumni Association until 1965. This hampers research of the many alumni who graduated between those years. During that 35-year time span, addresses of alumni likely changed several times, and the Association surely lost track of more than a few graduates. Although the financial constraints of the 1930s and the near closure of Washburn may have hampered the growth of the WCAA, Washburn reached out especially to the Kansas alumni during its 75th anniversary celebrations in 1940. President Philip King and other officials made trips to alumni groups around the state to include them in the celebration and also to give presentations about the continuing financial campaign. After the city of Topeka breathed new life into the College and it became Washburn University, interest in reorganizing the alumni grew. In 1948, a new constitution was adopted, and Cecil Peterson, ba ’34, was unanimously

elected president, succeeding Ward Martin, jd ’33. The new constitution officially changed the Association’s name to Washburn Alumni Association and altered some of its functions. An alumni fund was created, and plans were made to present awards to distinguished graduates during commencement week. The first Distinguished Service Awards were given to four alumni in 1949. Also in 1949, the board of directors officially adopted an alumni seal. As reported in the April 1949 Washburn University Bulletin, the seal “shows Mr. Ichabod spanning two hemispheres, to indicate that we have alumni around the world. The date, 1885, was when the first official Alumni Association was created.”

Early members of the Association were recent graduates of

43 Washburn Alumni Association

The mission of the Washburn Alumni Association has remained constant for 125 years. Organized in 1885, the Association is charged with the task of advancing the mutual interests of the alumni and the university. To achieve this goal, the two top priorities of the Association are: • To maintain contact with alumni after graduation and keep them informed about Washburn and their fellow classmates. • Organizing events to promote fellowship among alumni and which strengthen relationships between alumni and the Washburn community. As we look back on 2010, we are proud to report continued regular contact with alumni. Our office mailed nearly 200,000 pieces of mail to alumni and friends throughout the year. The Ichabod magazine, sent three times a year to all alumni, is our most significant form of communication. E-mail, the Internet and social networking allow alumni and friends easy ways to stay in touch with each other and the Alumni Association through Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Your Alumni Association hosted more than 50 events in 2010 to keep nearly 39,000 Ichabod alumni connected with one another and with Washburn. Events included reunions, monthly mixers, tailgate parties, luncheons, receptions, recognition of outstanding alumni, a 5K scholarship fun run and group travel around the world. We are delighted that enthusiastic alumni in Kansas City, Mo., Wichita, Kan., Denver, Colo., and Washington, D.C., organized Ichabod Clubs to unite alumni in their geographic regions. And we are deeply grateful to the members of our board of directors for their interest, concern and dedicated service. Alumni support is important and vital to the continued success of the Alumni Association and the university. Dues-paid memberships make it possible for us to fulfill our mission and goals, sustain existing programs and implement new ideas. Thank you to the Washburn alumni and friends who support the Alumni Association by being dues-paid members. The list of members on the following pages is intended to recognize them for their support. If your name isn’t on the list, and you would like to support the Alumni Association, join today online at alumni, or fill out the membership envelope included in this magazine.
