In Memory: Doris Thames 1929-2001

Doris Trammell Thames, the accountant for the
psychology department, passed away on July 30 after an
extended illness. Doris had worked at UF for 34 years,
and she spent 24 of those years with the psychology
department, working under four department chairs.
Psychology Chair Martin Heesacker says, "Doris
Thames was the most courageous person I have ever
worked with. She carried herself right until the end of
her life with grace and dignity, careful not to burden
others with her troubles. She was a very dedicated UF
employee, a wonderful and colorful colleague. We miss
her very much."

he transition from the quiet hazy summer days to a campus
reborn in the fall with all the hustle and bustle of one of the
nation's most comprehensive universities is always a special
moment that invigorates and inspires all of us, this year no less
than others.The hallways, classrooms and courtyards seem to fill
instantly to full capacity, and often much more, and the atmo-
sphere recharges faculty and staff with optimism and nervous
enthusiasm for the new academic year. This year, however, is
much more than that. It is a year of change and a year of oppor-
tunity as we move to a new relationship with the state and a new
governing structure that is changing almost as abruptly as the
academic season.
With the tantalizing promise of some degrees of indepen-
dence and a Board of Trustees charged and dedicated to UF,we
have the rare chance to reform some parts of our fabric as an
institution and striving to emerge from our current standing to
become a top public university. Our students are among some of
the best in the nation and they deserve no less, and the state cer-
tainly cannot successfully reach toward new technologies without
strong creative universities.
The test now before us is to see how we respond to this
opportunity. Others will measure the strength of our will, our
energy and our imagination to develop the kind of initiatives and
programs that will set UF apart from other public institutions and
move us clearly on a path toward a higher level of excellence and
international recognition. We will not receive many such opportu-
nities where we hold the future in our hands.
Of course this requires resources, ideas and time; but first we
need to engage the academy and OUR Board in focusing on what
will make UF different from the norm. In CLAS we are commit-
ted to preparing students for an increasingly global society.We
educate our students to be not only competitive internationally
in their field, but also to understand the cultural differences of
others and to value and respect those who have grown up in dif-
ferent societies. Without this understanding, all the expertise in
the world will not help our young graduates emerge as leaders
here or abroad. CLAS is building new programs, in the humani-
ties and social sciences, on the teaching of other cultures, modern
languages and literatures, to meet this need.We are establishing
interdisciplinary centers, which will serve as magnets to attract
leading international scholars and visitors to UF and allow our stu-
dents to gain a meaningful international perspective.

Interim Director

Center for Studies in

Criminology and Law

She Center for Stud-
ies in Criminol-
L ogy and Law was
a small criminal justice
teaching program at its
inception in the 1970s. In
those early days, our fac-
ulty members were scat-
tered across departments,
research was secondary,
and our curriculum resem-
bled a Chinese menu-
criminology majors had to
select several courses from
approved lists in three
separate departments.
In the 1980s, the pro-
gram was reconstituted.
The undergraduate teach-
ing program and the inter-
disciplinary approach were
retained, but the narrow
criminal justice emphasis
was expanded to include
criminology and legal
studies generally. A center
structure was adopted to
invigorate research.

In the 1980s, the program...was expanded to

include criminology and legal studies gener-

ally. A center structure was adopted to invigorate

research... Our faculty members have degrees in

criminology, education, history, law, psychology,

social ecology, and sociology.

Since then, the
Center for Studies in
Criminology and Law has
continued to evolve its
teaching and research mis-
sions. The center now has
12 voting faculty members
with various links to the
Departments of History,
Psychology, and Sociol-
ogy. Our faculty members
have degrees in criminol-
ogy, education, history,
law, psychology, social
ecology, and sociology.
Our center supports
the largest interdisciplin-
ary degree program at UF,
serving over 600 majors,
dual degrees, and minors.
Because we have a "lim-
ited access" major, our
students are truly above
average. They demand
and receive a high level of
quality teaching. Seven of
our faculty have received
teaching awards. The
center's interdisciplinary
thrust is reflected in its
undergraduate curricu-
lum-it requires courses
in criminal justice, theory,
research methods, law, and
law and society.
The center continues
to develop its research
programs. Last year, it
inaugurated the Institute
for Crime, Justice, and
Policy Research. Recent
funding has come from
various federal, state, and
private agencies includ-
ing the National Institute
of Justice, the Florida
Department of Juvenile

page 4

Justice, and the Spencer
and MacArthur Founda-
tions. Proposals have
recently been submit-
ted to the federal Office
of Juvenile Justice and
Delinquency Prevention
and the US Department of
Education. Our research
has been well received by
publishers and appears in
a variety of disciplinary
and interdisciplinary jour-
Because I am cycling
through a second time
as interim director of
the center, I have a spe-
cial appreciation for the
development that has
occurred. In the old days,
the center relied on fac-
ulty members who were
not in tenure track lines.
It secured resources by
promoting and increasing
the undergraduate teaching
program, which diverted
energies away from
research. Interdisciplinary
work was not a high prior-
Now the center is
positioned very differently.
Our capable and produc-
tive young faculty mem-
bers embrace the ideal of
the teacher/scholar. They
engage in collaborative
interdisciplinary work
which is well-received.
The center is poised to
recruit a new director who
will move it to greater
prominence in the years

Cynthia Butler

New Senior Director

of Development

Cynthia Butler became the new Senior Director of Devel-

opment for CLAS in July. She replaces Carter Boydstun,

who is now the Senior Associate Vice President for Devel-

opment at UF. Butler comes to UF from Wright State Uni-

versity in Dayton, Ohio. CLASnotes Editor Allyson A. Beutke

recently interviewed Butler about her new position and

what she hopes to accomplish with CLAS.

How have your past positions prepared
you for your current job at UF?
In my 20 years at Wright State, I spent eight years in
development and grants writing and grants administra-
tion. I was Director of Advancement for the School of
Medicine and ended my tenure as Assistant Vice Presi-
dent for Development. Serving in these positions provid-
ed me the opportunity to work with a variety of faculty
including basic science researchers, medical clinicians,
social scientists and humanists. Also, my degree is in
communications which, at Wright State, is housed in the
College of Liberal Arts.

How does UF differ from Wright State?
Dayton is a much larger metropolitan area than Gaines-
ville, but Wright State is a smaller institution than UE
There are about 16,000 students at WSU and 60,000
alumni. The University of Florida is well known across
the country, and I was well aware of its high quality of
academic programs. WSU is a relatively new player in
development with fewer resources available. Leading
the development program included establishing policy
and setting the ground rules along the way. It was chal-
lenging and rewarding, but it is nice to work with a more
mature program such as the one at UE

What areas of fundraising should CLAS consider?
The CLAS development office has gone through some
transitions over the past couple of years. During that
time, our development officers, Jennifer Denault and
Amanda Delp, have done a great job of fundraising,
maintaining donor relations, and continuing to staff spe-
cial events. We expand these efforts as resources allow.
Dean Sullivan has charged us to increase our efforts in
seeking grants from national private foundations. In the
next few months, our office will find out which founda-
tions have funding priorities that reflect strengths that
exist in CLAS. We will then develop strategies for culti-
vating relationships with program officers and develop-
ing proposals for submission.

What is a typical day like in your office?
There is no typical day in development. In a given day,
we may talk to donors or faculty, students or administra-
tors. The basis of our job is to raise private funds for
CLAS and to inform friends and alumni about CLAS.
Each development officer manages about 100 prospects
in various stages of giving. The idea is to travel and
meet with these prospects and to constantly look for new
ones. Our goal is to be on the road every week. Because
80 percent of our alumni remain in Florida, we spend a
significant amount of time traveling in our region. The
Dean will be on the road with us this fall to meet and
greet alumni around the state. To add some special inter-
est, various faculty members will also travel with us to
give mini-lectures on selected topics.

How can faculty and staff
help with fundraising efforts?
The key function of development is to build relation-
ships with prospective donors. These prospects include
private individuals, corporate officials and foundation
program officers. I will ensure that the relationship
between the CLAS development office and the depart-
ments continues to grow stronger. It is important that
departments keep us updated. Faculty and staff, with
assistance from the development staff, can foster and
build many relationships. Sending notes to alumni or
being helpful to a student in the hallway are both good
ways to help the fundraising process. Many alumni give
based on positive relationships with faculty and staff.
A successful development program must have inno-
vative programs to highlight to donors. Major donors
expect to invest in success. The CLAS departments have
already laid the foundation, and we are ready to help
them build upon it.

Dial Center Sponsors
Writing Workshops for
Middle School Students
The Dial Center for Written and Oral Communi-
cation (CWOC) hosted a writing workshop for
participants in the College Reach Out Program or
CROP in July. Forty-two middle school students from
Gainesville and Ocala and took part in the workshop,
which covered basic and advanced writing skills, and
electronic research. The workshop's aim was to provide
middle school students with the technical skills neces-
sary for writing proficiency in high school classes and
college admissions essays.
UF, Central Florida Community College, and
Santa Fe Community College coordinate CROP It
was originally a drop-out prevention program but now
includes tutoring, mentoring, and counseling programs
as well as the week-long summer residency where the
writing workshops were held. The goal is to motivate
middle school students from underprivileged areas to
seek academic skills that will keep them in high school,
encourage them to pursue secondary education, and then
be successful once they gain admission. Even though
CROP is now run through the Office of Outreach and
Recruitment in the College of Education, the CWOC

Geology Professor Ellen Martin and Chemistry Professor Mike
Scott will join the informal national alliance of individuals,
institutions, and organizations committed to strengthening
undergraduate science, mathematics, engineering, and tech-

CLAS Professors Join
Project Kaleidoscope
wo CLAS faculty members have been accepted to participate in Project Kalei-
doscope or PKAL. Geology Professor Ellen Martin and Chemistry Professor
Mike Scott will join the informal national alliance of individuals, institutions,
and organizations committed to strengthening undergraduate science, mathematics,
engineering, and technology education. Scott will attend 2001 PKAL National Assem-
bly in Madison, Wisconsin this fall, and Martin plans to attend one of the summer
institutes next year.
At the annual meeting and the summer institutes, undergraduate science and
mathematics faculty serve on PKAL leadership committees and task forces. One of the
main objectives of the PKAL meetings is to provide participants with specific materi-
als that will bring cutting edge science to their own campuses, with special attention to
issues relating to ethics, writing, undergraduate research, and technology. Since PKAL
began in 1989, it has had two goals: 1)Transform the learning environment for under-
graduate students in the sciences by building institutional teams with a driving vision
of what works; 2) Foster public understanding of how a strong undergraduate science
community serves the national interest.
Associate Dean Carol Murphy nominated Martin and Scott, and she says the
acceptance of the two faculty members is a testimony to the strength of CLAS science
departments. "Dr. Scott has been a key participant in the internationalization of science
activities in the chemistry department and has been instrumental in developing the bio-
chemistry track. Dr. Martin's thorough, demanding and enthusiastic approach to teach-
ing has helped launch the "Earth Science" track in geological sciences as a popular
choice for non-majors and has increased interest in geological sciences as a major."

The Nascent Center for the Humanities and the

Public Sphere Sponsored Lecture Series

Unifying Nature: Past and Present
September 20-23, 2001, History Conference Room, 005 F
Scholars from the United States and Europe will join
UF faculty to explore the drive for unity that lies behind
past and present investigations of nature. At the same
time, participants will identify and assess why this drive
has sometimes been abandoned and what consequences,
positive and negative, have resulted. Where possible,
participants are encouraged to look beneath the surface
of any social consensus about the role of science in the
past or in the present, and to examine any deep-seated
and lasting visions of nature and humankind that have

endured over time in spite of changing articulations of
the contents of science.

Theorizing Transnational Religion and Globalization
This lecture series will explore the role of transnational Religion and Diaspora

religion in the process of globalization, with a particular
focus on its impact on US society. Religion is one of the
central cultural resources that transnational immigrants
bring as they seek to negotiate multiple embeddedness
in host and home countries. The lecture series will offer
an opportunity for a high level interdisciplinary dialogue
around the critical issue of the changing face of religion
and its role in the redefinition of identity, modernity, and
nationhood in a global setting.

Statistical Inference
George Casella- (Statistics)
Roger L.Berger

This book builds theoretical statistics from
the first principles of probability theory.
Starting from the basics of probability, the
authors develop the theory of statistical infer-
ence using techniques,and concepts that are
statistical and are natural extensions and con-
sequences of previous concepts. Intended for
first-year graduate students,this book can be
used for students majoring in statistics who
have a solid mathematics background. It can
also be used in a way that stresses the more
practical uses
of statisti-
Ecal theory,
being more

for a variety
of situations,
and less con-
cerned with
formal optimality investigations. Among
the book's many benefits are updated and
expanded exercises in all chapters, and
updated and expanded Miscellanea including
discussions of variations on likelihood and
Bayesian analysis, bootstrap,"second-order"
asymptotics,and Monte Carlo Markov chain.

Handbook of Interview Research:
Context and Method
Edited by Jaber F.Gubrium (Sociology) and
James A. Holstein
Sage Publications

The Handbook of Interview Research offers a
sive examina-
tion of the
interview in I RIE
the context of IREC
a challenging
postmodern tit
in breadth,
the Hand-
book pro-
vides expert
of the con- l
ceptual and
cal issues surrounding interview practice in
relation to forms of interviewing, new tech-
nology, diverse data-gathering and analytic
strategies, and the various ways interview-
ing relates to distinctive respondents. This
engaging presentation guides the reader
from an understanding of the interview as an
instrument for gathering data, to reflections
on the process at the cutting edge of infor-
mation technology, to how it will shape the
information we gather about individuals and
"While the book certainly contains many
useful pointers on practical methodologi-
cal issues, this book casts practical methods
within a nuanced theoretical framework.
These chapters help locate aspects of inter-
viewing within their theoretical, phenomeno-
logical,interactional,and organizational con-
texts. Even those with extensive experience
as interviewers, interview subjects, or inter-
view consumers are likely to learn from these
thoughtful essays." -Joel Best, Professor and
Chair of Sociology, University of Delaware
