For Faculty and Staff
Private companies
offer to build, run
student housing
The possibility of more student housing on campus was revived last week
with the proposals by two companies to
finance, build and operate dormitories
for 500 students
With the approval of the Florida Board
of Regents the University asked for the
proposals that call for private financing,
construction and operation.
Proposals were received last Thursday from two consortiums, one known
as Collegiate Inns Development Corporation, Tallahassee, and the other Florida Educational Facilities Leasing, Maitland.
A Resident Housing. Review Commit- .
tee, comprised of Bill Morris, chair;
Chris McCray; students Rick Moss,
Russ Nelson and Dana Owens; Richard
Paradise, Jack Winstead, Jerry Osterhaus and Dr. Bill Brown, will review the
offers and make a recommendation to
the Board of Regents.
The Department of Natural Resources
and the state cabinet will have to approve before a contract is let.
The request for proposals allows a
great latitude for creative structuring of
the financing and operation. The company that signs a lease with the University will have long term use of 11 acres
east of the Scholarship House between
Aquarius Agora Drive and Lake Claire.
The building height will be limited to
five stories and the exterior must be of
brick.
Amenities offered in the project are up
to the developer, who may not charge
less than rates charged by the University's Housing Department.
Lack of public funding for student
housing has forced universities to seek
creative arrangements with private
groups.
Morris said that if an agreement can
be reached before the end of the year
the builder-operator would still be able to
complete at least some of the units in
time for the Fall 1989 term.

OJ FORUM
TO HEAR BELL
Dr. Terrell Bell, former U.S. Secretary of Education and now a professor of education at the University of
Utah, will be the speaker on Oct.11
at an OJ Forum observing UCF's
25th anniversary.
The Forum, an Orlando Chamber
of Commerce activity open to everyone, will run from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at
the Expo Center and will follow the
theme "Black and Gold with a Silver
Lining."
A continental breakfast is available without charge. In addition to
Bell's speech, the program will feature an 8-minute video commemorating UCF's contributions and accomplishments since the University
was chartered in 1963. The video,
prepared by Gary Twitchell of Instructional Resources, will have its
premier showing at the Forum.

UCF names
new director of
campus security
The University has a new director of
campus security, Richard P. Turkiewicz, who has held the same title at
Youngstown State University (Ohio) for
eight years.
Turkiewicz was chosen after a national search and he will report for duty on
Nov. 28 to replace Ron Seacrist who resigned to take a position at Sarasota,
the Office of the Vice President for Administration and Finance announced.
The search committee was chaired by
Dr. Joyce Clampitt.
The new director began his career in
law enforcement as a trooper with the
New York State Police, was an investigator for State University of New York at
Buffalo, and director of State University
of New York at Alfred before serving at
Youngstown.
He earned a BA in Sociology from
State University of New York at Fredonia and an MA in Social Sciences from
State University at Buffalo. He also has
lectured on criminal justice topics at
several universities and colleges.
He holds the rank of lieutenant commander in the Naval Reserves, specializing in Naval Intelligence.
Among honors he has received is the
1987 Outstanding Accomplishment
Award from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators.
Married and father of three children,
he has been active in church, school
and community affairs.
Arboretum party
a '25th* celebration
Picnic blankets, musical instruments
and sketch pads will be welcome accessories to an afternoon of food, music
and just communing with nature on Saturday, Oct. 29, when the UCF arboretum
opens to the public and celebrates the
University's 25th anniversary.
Planned activities include a tree planting ceremony, plant sale, workshops on
gardening, natural history and watercolor painting. Events are scheduled from
2 to 6 p.m.
In the exploding world of personal
computer use UCF has emerged in the
forefront this year, ready to show other
schools how to transform an isolated
machine into a tool a thousand times
more powerful.
Four years of research at UCF has
brought out a campus network that allows a student to access more than 800
programs at any one of 250 computers
in six labs in five buildings on campus,
plus 150 more PCs on five LANs on
three area campuses.
Earlier this year a team within Computer Services made known their proposed solution to the former isolation of
the personal computer. So many advantages were demonstrated that the
Board of Regents in July authorized the
creation of an Institute for Local Area
"This institute would have as one of
its major roles the conduct of basic research on the design, deployment and
use of LANs. It is expected to do for
LANs what 1ST does for simulation and
training, what CREOL does for lasers
and electrooptics and what FSEC does
_ for solar energy."

Vice President for Research

the prototype to other institutions.

space in CREOL, iocated in the Research Pavilion in the Central Florida
Research Park. A permanent home on

BOR recognizes achievements,
adopts growth plan for the future
The Florida Board of Regents meeting
on the Orlando campus Sept. 23 recognized the University's 25 years of
achievement and adopted a growth plan
to accommodate a crunch of new students trying to get into UCF and most
other state universities.
UCF graduate student Jackie Goigel
took her seat as a regent in time to welcome the delegation led by President
Trevor Colbourn with the 25th anniversary resolution for BOR adoption. The
delegation, representing all facets of
the University community, plus alumni
and community boosters, included Laura Pooser, Jerry McGratty, Barbara
Pope, Phil Taylor, Denver Stutler, Cynthia Moore, Sue Anderson, Joanne
Bandy, Miller McCarthy, Dan Mahurin,
Pat Knipe, Van Canada, Joe Stahl, Sandra San Miguel, Lou Pritchett, Les Ellis,
Charles Millican, Tony Padilla, Edward
Eliscu, Al Fickett, James Schofield, Joe
Morgan and Jerry Chicone.
The BOR adopted a $1.4 billion 198990 budget that represents a 14.68 percent increase. If the legislature grants
the request then Florida's nine public
universities would open the doors to
5,900 additional students in the fall of
1989.
The growth plan adopted by the board
would allow UCF to increase its head
count by about 611 and total enrollment
would grow to around 18,800. In full time

New neighbor developers give
UCF an eminent scholar chair
Newcomers to the area proved themselves good neighbors last week by
presenting UCF with the largest academic gift in its 25-year history . Developers of the proposed University
Estates subdivision gave $625,000 to
endow an eminent scholar chair that will
help bolster Florida's.fast growing laser
and electro optics industry.
The gift from Cobb Partners Development, Inc., a Jacksonville-based development firm headed by the former chair. man of Arvida Disney Corporation, and
L.J. Hooker Homes, the U.S. home
building arm of Australia-based Hooker
Corporation Limited, will be matched by
$437,500 from the State of Florida to
create an endowment of $1,062,500 to
hire and support the work of an internationally recognized scholar in the laser
and optical sciences at UCF's Center for
Research in Electro Optics and Lasers
(CREOL).
"The Cobb-L.J. Hooker Eminent
Scholar Chair in Optical Sciences and
Engineering represents the private sector's commitment to support public education and also reflects the great
strides made by the. University in developing research capabilities that serve
the area's growing high-tech industries,"
said Charles E. "Chuck" Cobb, Jr., di-
rector of Cobb Partners and former
chairman and chief executive officer of
Arvida Disney Corporation.
Cobb, a long-time champion of education and current Under Secretary for
Travel and Tourism with the U.S: Department of Commerce, also serves as vice
chairman of the board of trustees for the
University of Miami, is an honorary trustee at Biscayne College, and is trustee
of the business school trust fund at
Stanford University where he earned BA
and MA degrees.
"Few public-private partnerships will
pay off as handsomely for everyone as
the one Cobb and L.J. Hooker executives have formed with us," UCF President Trevor Colbourn said in accepting
the contribution.
"The generous gift of the Cobb-L.J.
Hooker Eminent Scholar Chair will accelerate CREOL's development and will
add to the center's already substantial
national reputation," Colbourn added.
"Just as importantly, the chair will help
us meet the teaching and research challenges of a $1-billion Florida industry
which is expected to triple in size in a
little more than a decade."

United Way Campaign
The 1988 Heart of Florida United Way Campaign is now underway!
Mr. Chuck Luthin, 1988 general campaign chairman and
vice president, Walt Disney World, advised us of the change
in name of our local United Way to "Heart of Florida" (which
still includes Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties) as an
effort to unite in name what already exists-that is, one community. He stated that the purpose of United Way can be
summed up in the words: "Neighbors working together to help
build a better community." He further stated that United Way
is the "best buy" for one's charitable dollar because 91 percent of the funds collected go to 75 human service agencies,
with only nine percent expended in United Way operations/
administration. Also, local citizens both raise and allocate
United Way funds to local human services agencies only,
and as a donor you can identify the agency or agencies you
wish to support.
The UCF campaign is scheduled for the period Oct. 3Nov.3. Please give your support to this important community
program and help us to achieve our 1988 goal of $30,000.
AfeirV neighbors give UCF eminent scholar chair
Orange County Research and Development Authority for the Development of
University Estates—an exclusive swim
and tennis club community of $125,000$500,000 homes—indicated Orlando's
"highest quality of employment growth"
in the next decade will occur in a "fivemile radius" around UCF and neighboring
Central Florida Research Park.
"University Estates not only helps
perpetuate public education and the
area's technological growth and research, but accomodates the up-scale
housing needs resulting from new job
formation in the park, at UCF, and from
surrounding industries by creating a
residential community in a stimulating
academic environment," Daryl Spradley,
corporate marketing director of L. J.
Hooker Homes, explained.
The creation of the Cobb-L.J. Hooker
Eminent Scholar Chair provides a further boost for CREOL which has grown
into one of the nation's leading centers
for teaching and research in the optical
sciences and laser field since its founding in 1985.
Located in Central Florida Research
Park, named last year as one of the nation's top business parks by Site Selection Handbook, CREOL currently is
staffed by 13 faculty members,
equipped with 16 laboratories, and is
helping fill the demand for the estimated
3,000 new scientists and engineers expected to be needed in the optical industry throughout Florida by the year
2000.
(FROM PAGE 1)
Creation of the Cobb-L.J. Hooker
chair raises UCF's number of fully funded eminent scholar chairs to four. Six
other UCF chairs are progressing towards the $600,000 private giving threshold which triggers a $400,000 matching
contribution by the State of Florida under the Eminent Scholar Program initiated in 1979 by the Florida Legislature to
promote public-private partnerships.

Employee of the Month
Linda Esposito loves her job
in the College of Education
When her temporary part-time job
downtown was coming to an end Linda
Esposito started looking in the same
area for her next paycheck.
Almost as an afterthought she put in
an application at UCF. Although she
grew up on the east side of Orlando she
didn't think of the University as a place
where people worked.
A friend, a secretary in one of the colleges, suggested she give it a try. She
did, she's glad she did, and though she
would like to go up the ladder from clerktypist specialist, she doesn't want to to
leave the College of Education. It all
has to do with the friends she has made
in the past 14 months.
Linda works in the front office of Instructional Programs, chaired by Dr.
Robert Martin and staffed by two dozen
faculty members, on area campuses, as
well as the main campus. She works directly with Catherine Martin, administrative secretary, and Susan Schab, secretary specialist, the other two full time
employees, and student assistants.
Susan answers the telephones and that
means she sets up appointments for faculty.
A typewriter is the other tool of her
trade that gets constant use, but that is
being supplanted by a word processor.
Each of the fulltime employees in the office has the same kinds of tools in similar desk arrangements. It's a busy office and they must help each other as
the workload shifts.
Because Linda fitted into the team
spirit so well Susan nominated her for
Employee of the Month, and the luck of
the draw picked her to receive the title,
honors and gifts for the month of October.
Susan said of her young co-worker,
"When you ask her to do something,
even at one minute to 5 o'clock, she
pitches in cheerfully and does the job
willingly."
Catherine amplified Susan's sentiment. "Linda? We just love her.
Couldn't do without her."
When she graduated from Colonial
High School Linda sought a job because
she didn't have a strong motivation to
get a college education. She still has
not focused on a career goal, but knows
that when she does make up her mind
she is in the right place to complete her
education.
Meanwhile, it's a nice place to work
and she does enjoy bowling with the
UCF Bowling League on Wednesday
evenings.

Hispanic Week-free music, food, arts and craftsCampus police
Hispanic Week provides national recognition of Hispanics, their heritage and
their contributions to the historical development of the U.S., and it will be observed for the fourth year on the UCF
campus Oct. 17 through Oct. 2 1 .
Four days of free entertainment have
been planned and on Tuesday from 8
a.m. until 2:30 p.m. an open house will
be held in the Office of Minority Student
Services, second floor of the Administration Building.
At open house, said Jose R. Aleman,
coordinator of student affairs for the Office of Minority Services, there will be a
book exhibit, a display of arts and crafts
and samples of traditional Latin American foods.
Los Romanticos trio will provide live
music for diners at the University Dining
Room on Monday from noon until 1:30
p.m
Musical shows are planned for three
evenings, all in the Student Center Auditorium.
Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. pianist Luis Ramos and singer Jannine Gamache will
be in concert.
A variety of music and dancing are on
tap Wednesday at 8 p.m.. Entertainers
Jose Aleman promotes unity
among Hispanic Americans
Jose R. Aleman has a philosophy
about his work that goes: "Unity among
Hispanics regardless of national background."
His fear is that stressing nations of origin can be divisive at a time when all
Latin Americans who have become U.S.
citizens need to help one another.
"We have more common denominators
than differences, such as language,
culture, social and economic background and very similar experiences as
citizens of the U.S."
A native of the Dominican Republic,
raised in the Bronx, Aleman dedicated
himself early to opening doors, first for
himself, and then for others.
Since 1984 he has been the coordinator of student affairs for the Office of Minority Student Services. This led him to
found and become the adviser for the
Hispanic American Student Association, a group dedicated to incorporating
Hispanics into college life and insuring
their academic development.
He is a member of the League of United Latin American Citizens and is chairman ot LULAC's scholarship committee
and president of the Dominican Association of Central Florida.
Hispanic Week comes Oct. 17-21
and on campus it will be observed for
the fourth year with four days of programs in which the campus, public is invited to free musical entertainment and
a sampling of typical Hispanic foods.
Personnel Office reports 41 UCF employees are Hispanic Americans.
In this one week Aleman will have add
ed opportunity to get across the message that he spends all year spreading
through many outlets.
One of those outlets is a radio show of
Latin music, information and interviews
that he emcees over UCF's WUCF-FM
on Saturday nights from 9 until midnight.
With it he reaches beyond the Spanish
speaking community to introduce Latin
American culture.
Spending Saturday nights away from
his family is a sacrifice, but he feels the
responsibility to contribute to society
"because others opened doors for me
and I don't want future generations to go
through the hardships I had to go
through for acceptance and recognition."
He teaches speech and intermediate
structure for the Communication Department of Volusia Community College two
nights a week.
He writes a weekly column called
"Hispanic Tribune" that runs in Hispanic
newspapers in Orlando, Miami and New
York. Rollins College and area high
schools have called on his services as
a speaker. The subject: Minorities in
Higher Education, his favorite theme,
stresses positive reinforcement.
Before moving to Florida Aleman was
founder president of the Coalition of Hispanic Organizations in Providence, Rl,
vice president of the Providence Human
Relations Commission and board member of the Urban League of Rhode Island.

Mercibel Fernanda in duet.
Live Latin bands Vibracion 87 will perform for students in the Student Center
Auditorium from 9 until midnight on Friday.
Hispanics represent four percent of
the student population, but Hispanics
are now the fastest growing segment of
the U.S. population.
"We are both the oldest and the newest citizens of this country," said Aleman, reminding that Spaniards founded

for Threshold Run
Paul Martin Lester, assistant professor, Communication, is the creator of 10
paintings on exhibit in the UCF Library
until Nov. 1.
The large black and white paintings
are based on photographs Lester took
when he was a staff photographer for
the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He
has exhibited photographs and paintings in galleries throughout the U.S. and
comments, "Large paintings based on
pictures further abstract the images
making the subjects something more
than originally intended."
Lester teaches visual communication
and photojournalism courses.
Bond campaign
time extended
Flying high
Chancellor Charles B. Reed has extended the U.S. Savings Bond campaign through October to give State Univesity System employees more opportunity to participate in the program.
Any individual at UCF interested in
participating may contact Deborah
Evans at x2771; Mary Alford at x2488,
or W. Rex Brown at x5071.
UCF's innovative aerospace education program for teachers is recognized by the Frank C. Brewer Award, presented by LCol Ron Hudak,
USAF, (left) to David Hernandez, program director, and Jennie Loudermilk, associate dean of Extended Studies. The summer program,
started by Hernandez seven years ago, offers teachers opportunity to
attend campus lectures by aviation notables, take field trips to NASA
and other federal agencies, and on occasion, flights to Washington to
visit the Smithsonian Aerospace Museum. The Brewer Award is the
highest honor presented in the state annually by the Civil Air Patrol.
Hudak is Florida CAP Wing liaison officer.

UCF was ranked 13th in a listing of 30
U.S. universities ranked by author credit for the years 1980 through 1985.
In another table listing 50 of the most
productive researchers in that period
UCF's Fred Fedler was Il4th and Ron
Smith was 43rd. All individuals ranked
higher than the two were associated
with schools in other states.
Prepaid education
is new way to assure
child's way to college
A new way to assure a college education was introduced last month, the Florida Prepaid Postsecondary Education
program, aimed at parents who like a
bargain and plan ahead.
The program allows parents to purchase an advance payment contract to
prepay tuition and dormitory fees at any
of the state's nine universities and 28
community colleges. Once a contract is
signed, the state guarantees that the
fees contracted for will be paid at the
time of enrollment of the beneficiary in
the contract.
A child of any age can be named as a
beneficiary in an advance payment contract provided he or she is a resident of
Florida. A variety of plans will be available, including the chance to transfer to
another family member, or even to
transfer to an in-state private postsecondary institution.
The program is housed in the State
Treasurers Office, Tallahassee.
UCF ATHLETE CITED
UCF waterskier Kristi Overton will be
one of 10 women athletes to be honored
by the Women's Sports Foundation at a
black-tie dinner in New York City on Oct.
17. The foundation applauds the ":Up
and Coming" women athletes for recent
performances. Overton was selected
as a world-class woman athlete to represent the women vs nature category.

equivalency the growth would be 382,
including 111 in the freshman class,
raising the freshman class numbers to
1,350.
"Getting our enrollment funded is going to be a major effort this year," Chairman Joan Ruff ier told the board. She
called for a renewed public relations effort to gain public acceptance of higher
education as a need that has to be funded.
Ruffier told the board, "We need a five
year implementation plan to follow up
our five year growth plan-which will all
fall short unless we are perceived by the
public as voicing real needs."
(FROM PAGE 1)
Education Commissioner Betty Castor, also a regent, added, "I cannot
stress strongly enough that if we are going to keep up with school construction
we must have cooperation from every
level in this state. There has got to be
an increase in the source of funds and
this is the year when we have to decide,
whether we are going to keep up with
growth."
In the consent agenda the board approved hiring Vickrey-Ovresat-Awsumb
(VOA) Orlando architects to design the
$8.6 million Arts Complex, scheduled for
completion in 1992; Ray Johnson & Associates of Orlando to design the
$800,000 remodeling of Howard Phillips
Hall, scheduled for completion in September 1990, and Roe-Elliseo of Orlando to design the $500,000 Campus Security Building due for completion in
March 1990.
The budget includes 1989-90 funding
of $371,024 for UCF's new bachelor of
fine arts program in film, to be increased
to $778,818 the following year.

Homecoming
queen of 77
comes home
Those readers who were at UCF during
Rita Reutter's run for the roses may be
interested to know that she is back and
plans to finish up her master's degree
next year in time for her 70th birthday.
For those unfamiliar with Rita, a short
history lesson is in order.
When calls went out for 1977 Homecoming Queen, Rita decided to toss her
graying curls into the ring. Students
voted her in overwhelmingly.
A graduate student and a grandmother, the 58-year-old widow immediately
captured the attention of media at local,
state and national levels. She appeared
on The Tonight Show with Carson, on
"What's My Line," and was the darling of
the dailies.
No longer would people wonder where
UCF was!
Rita later took on duties as a senior
citizen's advocate with her own local TV
program before moving back to Connecticut and her family.
In a note received last week, she informed the UCF Report she is now living
in St. Cloud and intends to return to
campus soon.
Right on, Rita!

The right number
Southern Bell last month donated $1,000 to the UCF/Daytona Beach
Endowed Scholarship Fund, the occasion for smiles by Joe Petrock,
corporate manager for Southern Bell, as he handed over the check to
Sarah Pappas, campus director. Petrock is a member of the DB campus advisory board. The scholarship fund, begun last January, has
grown to $23,000, on its way to a $100,000 goal. Some creative fundraisers are promised by Dr. Pappas.
the second floor of the same building is
being made ready.
G. Hale Pringle, EdD, former associate director for instruction and research support at Computer Services,
was named director of the institute. He
also was the principal developer of
UCF's PC-LAN.
Novell Inc. of Provo, Utah, has agreed
to make a $250,000 grant to launch the
institute and a commitment for a second
award was secured from the State Department of Education's FIRN (Florida
Instructional Resources Network) project. The institute is expected to operate on grants, contracts, subcontracts,
gifts and donations.
Novell is a new and fast-growing company. In 1983 it had a staff of 13 and today there are more than 2,000 on staff
while the company's sales this year are
expected to top $300 million.
In the field of local area networking a
survey showed Novell with 62 percent of
the market in June 1988, while IBM, in
second place, had 19 percent.
UCF has been working with Novell
since 1984, adapting to academics a
technology developed for businesses.

In a company publication that reaches
150,000 readers, Novell earlier this year
praised what Pringle and his aides had
done with their NetWare.
Novell's president Ray Noorda and
UCF's president Trevor Colbourn signed
an agreement to work together to further
LAN technology and academic computing. The company created Novell Higher
Education Joint Partnership Program to
form partnerships with a number of universities by donating equipment and
awarding grants. UCLA and Brown were
included in the first round of grants after
UCF.
UCF is to become a clearinghouse for
universities, colleges and junior colleges that wish to become active in local
area networking. This will involve making UCF's software portable, writing
manuals and users' guides, publishing
books and creating electronic means for
distributing software.
Currently planned are an electronic
bulletin board, a data base on BITNET (a
network of mainframes with over 650
universities voluntarily taking part) and
a dial-in LAN which interested parties
can access to see how things are done
at UCF.
The FIRN project calls for a similar activity focused on K-12 schools in Florida.
Today, students and faculty can access the centrally located software programs all electronically. Formerly, attendants in each lab had to issue disks
as users requested. Besides being a
slow process requiring human intervention, it still didnt keep disks from disappearing.
Novell software made it possible to
keep the library of disks at a secure location. "Every user has a full-powered
machine at their fingertips because of
access to our tool box concept," Pringle
said.
The PC network also connects to the
mainframe, the biggest computer on
campus, but because the vast library of
LAN software provides students with
nearly everything they need, the mainframe has been relieved of some traffic,
making it available for research that requires a bigger computer.

to organize walkers
Recreational Services proposes to organize a walking club for faculty and

vigorous exercise programs.
The organizational meeting for the
Knight Walkers will be at noon on Monday, Oct. 10, in the Education Building
gym, according to Chris English, assistant director.
"We want you to become one of more
than 60 million Americans who walk for
fitness and exercise," English said.
Those who are unable to attend the
meeting but want more information may
call Rec Services x2408, or the Health

Buildings emptied of workers and students the day that Discovery lifted off for a successful space flight, as the crowd outside of Admin
Building testifies. It had been so long since the last previous missile
launch that watchers didn't know where to concentrate their gaze. If
there seems to be laughter among viewers that's because of theembarrassment experienced when the crowd realized the trail they had
been following was a high-flying aircraft, succeeded and soon forgotten because of a much more spectacular trail in the right place, though
obscured by clouds in early stages.
