A Shift In Focus:

.AT,' ,..,, 3

As you are aware, our enrollments have
substantially increased over the last 14
years, from about 600 students to 1,822
students last fall. Most of this growth has
been at the undergraduate level. Of our
current student population, 1598 are
undergraduate and 224 graduate students.
In the past two years, however, College
.-nrollrnits have begun to level off. This is
by design, not from lack of student
interest. We simply have neither the
faculty nor the space for further significant
undergraduate growth.

In addition, under the Florida Board of
Regent's new university classification plan,
the University of Florida is recognized as a
"Research I" institution. In effect, this caps
undergraduate enrollments but lifts all
limits on developing other programs and
allows us to strive to be the best research
university in the nation. The lTni\I irih. and
each of its colleges, are now turning more of
their attention to graduate education.
Currently, the UF graduate student
population is 19% of its total student
population. For the College this figure is
only I V'.. These percentages are quite low
compared to the 27% average for the top ten
public universities in the country. So, we
have some catching up to do.

OUR PLAN. The College plan is to gener-
ally maintain the size of its undergraduate
population while more than doubling its
graduate enrollment to about 500 students.
Achieving this goal will require that we
compete successfully with our peer
institutions in attracting a greater number
of the best graduate student candidates
from the top institutions in the US and

To do this, two things have to happen.
First, we must continue to increase the
breadth and relevancy of our graduate
offerings. This has to be accomplished
without weakening our existing and
highly successful graduate programs. (One
example of this success is that 100% of our
I 'h 1) graduates are employed in appropri-
ate and highly desirable positions in their
fields of study.) Second, our graduate
growth must be adequately funded. This
will require that we receive additional
state resources and that we continue to
increase our generation of funds from
grants and contracts as well as through
private giving. Here we are already
showing good progress.

NeV, Graduate 0- The College has
recently developed several new graduate
degree options. These include a combined
MS'MBA degree with the College of
Bu-iine,-i in the area of Sports Manage-
ment; a combined MS/JD degree with the
College of Law in the area of Sport Law;
and new Ph.D. options in Athletic
Training, h iomeclianic'-.. Clinical Exercise
Physiology, Sport Psychology, Tourism
Research and Development, and Thera-
peutic Recreation. Furthermore, our best
students now have access to combined BS/
MS degrees in each department. These
programs allow for a seamless transition
from undergraduate to graduate educa-
tion, and they decrease by about one
semester the time for earning a Master's
Degree. Next year we hope to announce
the start of a new Master of Public Health
Degree that is now being reviewed for

Increased Funding. Regarding the financing
of this effort, our Provost, Betty Capaldi,
has provided us with some increased
funding based upon projected graduate
enrollment growth for the next year. And
contract and grant activity is on the rise. In
1998, the faculty for the first time exceeded
the $1 million mark in secul.ri'n new
external funds for their research and to
help support graduate students. In
addition, we are three-quarters of the way
to meeting the College Capital Campaign
goal of S2. IUl1 ti'C11 a good portion of which
is specified for Graduate Fellowships by
the donors.

A BRI.c H FUruRF. This shift in focus
begins another important chapter in the
history of the College. Graduate education
is the bedrock of a "Research 1" institu-
tion and adds richness to the undergradu-
ate experience by raising the overall
expectations, intellectual level and
excitement of the academic enterprise.
Cro\ ing the College graduate programs is
the next step in elevating our national and
international position as a leader in
education and scientific activities that
help us all improve and maintain our
health, fitness and quality of life. I will
keep you posted on our progress.

ft ideas to helo

reduce estate taxes and reduce the
illiquilitv problems -tha pl ig I- e' tates
with large percentages of real estate. Two
of these suggestions could even result in
sizeable current income tax deductions,
which you might use to purchase insurance
that can benefit your heirs.

Outright Gifts of Real Estate
An outright charitable gift of long-term
appreciated real estate may entitle you to
the following tax benefits:
a charitable contribution deduction on
your income taxes equal to the fair market
value of the property (based on a qualified
avoidance of capital gain taxes on the
appreciation in the asset,

removal of this asset from your estate.

Given to UF through the University of
Florida Foundation, this outright gift can
be used by the university to help support
an educational purpose of interest to you.
As I write, there have been more than 20
gifts of real estate in the university
campaign, worth nearly $3 million to UP

Life Income Vehicles
These vehicles make it possible to convert
non-income-producing real estate into an
income-producing asset and support UF at
the same time. If you are worried about
capital gain tax or estate tax on long-term
appreciated property, a charitable remain-
der trust (CRT) could be the answer.

Consider the advantages of the CRT:
you receive a current income tax deduction for the present
value of the charitable remainder interest (based on a qualified
you avoid capital gain tax on the appreciation (no capital gain
tax is paid when the C i r sells the property),
you and your spouse retain income from the CRT for life (or
may pass it to others for their li\.v-.
your charitable remainder supports a purpose of your choice
at UF, and
the asset is removed from your estate for estate tax purposes.

The money you save in income taxes, remember, can be used to
purchase insurance that could provide your heirs with more
inheritance than they would receive from appreciated property in
your estate that is subject to estate tax.

Reducing Estate Taxes
Here are two other suggestions for reducing estate taxes:

(1) G. property to UF 'hr. 'ii a will, codicil or trust.

Consider including a bequest of property to the UF Foundation (for
UF) in your estate planning documents. At your death, the
property goes to the Foundation where it is sold to benefit the
university as you instructed. Your estate receives an estate tax
deduction for the value of the property. Capital gain tax is never
paid on the appreciation.

(2) Make an outright gift to UF, retaining a "life estate."

Any personal residence (house, condominium, vacation home) or
farm can be transferred to Ul with you or your spouse retaining all
rights to use and occupy the property during your lives. (NOTE:
The right to sell the property requires the joinder of UF.)

You may receive a current charitable contribution deduction on
your income taxes equal to the remainder value and avoid estate
tax. The funds you would otherwise have paid in estate tax can be
put into another asset for your heirs.

New Flip Trust Opportunity
I iaill\. the IRS is currently reviewing the possibility of blessing a
new gift vehicle ;.alkl J the "Flip Trust." This trust begins as a net-
income-only unitrust and "flips" to a fixed-percentage unitrust
once its real estate assets has been liquidated. The proposed
regulations contain specific criteria for establishment of a Flip Trust
that call for careful consideration, but if you like the security of a
fixed-percentage CRT and would like to fund a trust with real
estate that may not be producing sufficient income for distribution,
a Flip Trust may be the answer

For more information on these gift options, ple,-t. call William D.
Frederick, Director of Development (352) 392-7612 x 225. We will
be delighted to review with you and your advisors the tax and
other benefits of making such a gift.

At the University of Florida, your gift produces tangible results in
improved performance, productivity and quality.

)de to theCoach

In college back in the 60's, I had a coach. Since
then, I have had other mentors, some supervi-
sors and even some coaches. But only one of
them is "Coach."

He was the gardener who planted the seeds
that have been I.' .c,, i i. at each stage of my
life. Coach taught me that ;la.i i,. was useful
and fun, but *in'l .'tir:: was vital. By
accepting the challenge of competition, I was
designing and building ,r-, If then testing
and improving myself....

Coach taught me to become energized by failure
and not to fear it. If I won a contest, then my
training, my plans and my tactics paid off.
Coach taught me that it., i'ltri'iri., the
struggle, the :, ;. n. the ioih'r,' was

lie introduced me to the habit of doing as well
as I could each time and then to review my
performances so I could do better next time.
The person I was yesterday was the person to
beat. The critical competition was with the
person 1 was, so I could become who I intended
to be.

As I left college and moved on in life, I did
not fully understand the lessons Coach had
' i,-til me. We seldom discussed ideas in
those days. Coach taught lessons to his boys
on a physical level. When the boys became
men, those lessons became pegs where the
intellect could hang ideas. Someone who has
competed can remember, understand and
believe. I suppose others can learn some
other way. I do not know.

Thanks to Coach, I won many collegiate and
state championships. Later I competed
ii.:rei'tai,;,.ill,,. where I won some and lost

Very few of those medals and trophies are still
knocking around on my shelves. Most I have
lost or given away. I learned the glory of
winning fades with time.

I ',. i7tl e;-,. t the important gifts, were the
attitude and the life habits. The attitude
remains. I i, seeds have all blossomed. Coach's
lessons are fresh, and in use, every day.

The provision of recreation programs that
are inclusive in nature, that is, usable and
enjoyable by everyone regardless of ability,
should be the primary mission of public
recreation. I'People with disabilities will
become more involved in public recreation
only when they become more aware of
what is available, when they feel welcome,
and when they know the services they
need are built into the -inr 'states
Department of Recreation, Parks and
Tourism researcher Candace Ashton,
Ph.D., CIRS.

Ashton conducted focus groups to deter-
mine the community recreation needs of
persons with disabilities and their families.
The focus groups conducted in a commu-
nity of 45,000 people involved children and
adults with disabilities, and parents of
children with disabilities (n=91). The focus
group participants identified issues
concerning their recreation wants and
needs, and what they perceived as barriers
to their involvement in or enjoyment of
recreational programs. The participants also
- ,I,,e- t:d. ways to overcome these barriers
in order to increase participation by persons
with disabilities.

The needs assessment found that people
with disabilities in that community were, for
the most part, unaware of what the Parks

and Recreation Department had to offer.
Those who did know about the department
and its services were either unable to
participate or did not want to participate.
Individuals were unable to attend because
either support services (e.g., sign language
interpreters) were not available or they
assumed they weren't available, or because
they did not have or could not afford
specialized transportation. Individuals
who chose not to attend did so because of
previous negative experiences with trying
to have their children involved in inclusive
recreation activities.

Ashton noted several strategies that City/
County Recreation D. p. l rin n-ll could
adopt to encourage greater participation
among individuals with disabilities. These
strategies ranged from hiring a full-time
Mainstream Specialist, to working with
local recreation therapists in health care
settings to provide leisure education to
patients prior to discharge. The focus of the
patient education would be information on
how to access community-based recreation
resources i hart public and commercial) to
continue recreation pursuits that meet both
therapeutic and recreation needs.

You're not really going to have the ability to
see the ball go off the bat."

"They have to identify the rotation of the
ball, so I tend to agree that it is correct. In
other words, hitters are more in tune from
day one to be hitting fastball rotations."

Singer's tips to improve reaction time
include not reaching or committing too
early to what the pitcher delivers. A
pitcher uses the same motion on a fastball
and a curveball, but uses a ditrcrent grip to
change the velocity.
Lopez said the Gators practice hitting
curveballs by setting pitching machines to
that pitch's rotation. "They're hitting off
fastballs the majority of the time, so you
just try to approach it that way and hope
that they develop good muscle memory
and good repetitions from it," he said.
Although the researchers believe this
information can be equated to all levels of
baj-iball research hasn't been conducted
with players other than at the college level.
The study was published in the December
issue of the journal "Research Quarterly for
Exercise and Sport."

UF Study Shows Participation In
Sports Gives Adolescent Girls
Positive Self-images

Participating in sports can have benefits for
adolescent girls that reach beyond simply
staying physically fit. Participants in
athletic activities have better images of
their own b1 d 'i., higher levels of self-
esteem and more trust for others, according
to Heather Hausenblas, assistant professor
in the Department of Exercise and Sport
Involvement in activities like sports and
exercising provides many positive benefits
beyond physical fitness. Sports participa-
tion and exercise promote psychological
well being, such as increases in self-esteem
and decreases in stress and anxiety.
Hausenblas' study recently published in
the journal of Sport Behavior gave 10 self-
report tests to 114 female participants, most
of whom were in high school. The partici-
pants comprised three groups; non-athletes

as the control group; general athletes in
sports such as volleyball, lacrosse and
soccer; and elite competitive divers.
"We chose divers because they compete
and train in revealing attire that places their
physiques on e aluntia e di'pll.,"
Hausenblas said. "There is a high aesthetic
quality to their sport, so we hypothesized
they might be more prone to experience
higher anxiety about :leiF plh- -klul."
Included in the testing were eight sub-tests
in the Eating Disorder Inventory-2, which is
designed to detect
indicators of eating
disorders, such as low
levels of trust for
others, body dissatis-
faction and low self-
esteem. The partici-
pants also were tested
for social physique
anxiety, or anxiety
over what other
people think of their
"We found that the
divers had the lowest
social physique
anxiety compared to
the other groups,"
Hausenblas said.
"From these results,
we can say that
athletes in general are
not a high-risk group,
compared to non-
athletes." In fact,
participation in
athletics may increase
positive emotions in
other ways. Results
of the study indicated
athletes felt they had
control over their
lives 53 percent more
than non-athletes did
and they had 31 percent less body dissatis-
faction than did non-athletes. Hausenblas
also found that athletes had 22 percent
more trust for others than non-athletes.
