SUBJECT: APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT IN THE GS

Colleagues,

I'm very pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Daniel Christopher to the new position of Director of Development for the Graduate School.

In this role, Mr. Christopher will lead the Graduate School's efforts to increase funding for graduate fellowships and to enhance graduate alumni relations. His principal responsibility will be to grow the central campus fellowship pool and to work closely with college development officers in growing college and individual program fellowship pools. The moment for this appointment is opportune, as the campus prepares for its next major capital campaign and the Graduate School prepares for its centennial in 2019.

Mr. Christopher comes to us with fourteen years of professional development experience in higher education, most recently as the founding Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Union Graduate College in Schenectady, NY, and, prior to that, as Director of Gift Planning at The Sage Colleges in Troy, NY. Having founded the Office of Institutional Advancement at Union Graduate College, Mr. Christopher is ideally positioned to assume the role of the Graduate School’s first Director of Development. Mr. Christopher holds an MBA in Management from Union and a BBA in Accounting from Siena College, and studied mechanical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He will assume his new duties in September.

With his experience in graduate fund raising, Mr. Christopher will be an invaluable addition not only to the GS, but also to University Development, particularly the Office of the Assistant Vice President of University Development, the GS’s partner in this appointment.

Please join Assistant Vice President for Development Mary Burke and me in welcoming Mr. Christopher to UMD.

Thank you.

SUBJECT: CALL FOR 2014-2015 INTERNATIONAL TEACHING FELLOWS

The Graduate School, in partnership with the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center (formerly the Center for Teaching Excellence), is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2014-2015 International Teaching Fellows Program. The International Teaching Fellowship pairs novice international graduate teaching assistants and graduate student instructors with advanced graduate teaching assistant mentors who will observe and consult with the international students to facilitate their development as future faculty and as current UMD teaching assistants. The International Teaching Fellows will meet as a learning community to share and discuss reflections on teaching and on strategies for improving their understanding of effective undergraduate teaching. The learning community will meet several times each semester.  Further information on the program expectations is available at: http://cte.umd.edu/ITF

We are seeking your help in identifying international graduate teaching assistants or graduate student instructors who demonstrate promise and would most benefit from the two aspects of the program: a mentor, and a learning community of peers. This is an honorific fellowship and the selected graduate teaching assistants and graduate student instructors will receive a $500 supplemental stipend. Senior graduate students who are experienced teachers are not good candidates for this program, which has been designed for new (first or second year) international graduate teaching assistants or instructors.

We are asking Graduate Directors to nominate no more than two international graduate students for this fellowship. To nominate a student, please submit a letter of nomination that provides information about the student's background, addresses the student's potential and promise, and articulates how participation in the program will benefit the student and your unit.

This year we will select eight International Teaching Fellows.  Nomination letters should be emailed to tltc@umd.edu<mailto:tltc@umd.edu> by Friday, September 19, 2014. If you have questions or would like to discuss the program, please contact the Teaching and Learning Transformation Center at tltc@umd.edu<mailto:tltc@umd.edu> or 5-9356.

SUBJECT: GRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS

Dear Colleagues,

The Graduate School often receives announcements about the impressive contributions that our graduate students are making to their respective fields of study - a direct reflection of the great work that your programs and faculty are doing to guide them towards success. The Graduate School is proud to play a part in their success as well by providing students well over $10 million in annual fellowship support.

Though substantial, that amount is not yet comparable to fellowship funding at Berkeley, Michigan, or other top peers. We are now making a concentrated effort to build our fellowship funding pools through private philanthropy and other means. It is critical that current and potential donors see clearly how their gifts support students and enable student success in research, scholarship, and creative activity. Therefore, when you publicize the achievements of students who have received University, Deans, Merit, or other Graduate School fellowships or research and travel awards, we ask that the Graduate School's support be acknowledged.

I thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to continuing our work together to create opportunities for our graduate students.

Regards,

Charles Caramello

Subject: Call for Nominations - Graduate Student Distinguished Service Award

Each spring the University of Maryland celebrates graduate students who have made outstanding contributions to the University community in the areas of service, involvement, leadership, and scholarship. I invite you to nominate a graduate student for the 2014-2015 Graduate Student Distinguished Service Award.  The award will be presented on Sunday, April 26, 2015 at the University Awards Program hosted by the Adele H. Stamp Student Union - Center for Campus Life and Omicron Delta Kappa.

Candidates for this award will be judged using the following award criteria:

  • Service to their department, the campus and broader community
  • Involvement in campus organizations, issues and activities
  • Demonstrated leadership in departmental or campus graduate student issues
  • Good scholarship, as reflected in research, publication, presentations, and professional contributions.

These criteria will be evaluated with the following considerations:

  • As the "Distinguished Service" award, service to the department, the campus and broader community is the primary criteria.
  • Service, involvement, leadership, and scholarship should be above and beyond the scope of typical assistantship or job responsibilities.
  • The award is not intended to reward scholarship for scholarship's sake, but rather scholarly work that complements a nominee's service to department, campus and community.
  • The award is intended to recognize the service and contributions made by the individual during his/her career as a graduate student at the University of Maryland.  Service, involvement, leadership and scholarship occurring prior to the start of the individual's graduate studies will be considered as background context but not as qualifications for the award.

Nomination materials include at least one letter of nomination addressing the above criteria, and the nominee's current résumé or curriculum vitae.  Supplementary materials, including a maximum of two additional letters of support, are welcome.  Self-nominations are also invited, but should be accompanied by at least one letter of support.  Faculty, staff members, advisors, academic departments, and fellow students should submit all nomination materials online at http://stampunion.umd.edu/awards/<http://www.stampunion.umd.edu/awards/>graduate/nominate.aspx by 11:59 p.m., Thursday, February 5, 2015.  You will be asked to complete the form with the nominator's and nominee's information.  You will then be able to upload the letter of nomination, résumé or CV, and any additional materials.  Please note that only one nomination may be submitted for a nominee; if you wish to submit materials from multiple individuals, please plan to coordinate to collect those materials in advance.

I encourage you to share this material with members of your organization.  Please contact Donna Lim at 301-314-8491 or via e-mail at dylim@umd.edu should you have questions about the nomination process or the Awards Program. Thank you for your assistance with this important selection process.

If you experience technical difficulties with submitting the nomination form, please email IT Services at uts-web@umd.edu<mailto:uts-web@umd.edu>.
