UMassMAGSUMMER 2008 VOLUME 11 NUMBER 2AZINEMARTIN T. MEEHANINAUGURATED AS CHANCELLOROF UMASS LOWELLPage 15Lays Out Vision for Taking ‘Strong’ Institution to the ‘Next Level’

INAUGURAL ADDRESS OF CHANCELLOR MARTIN T. MEEHANFor this issue of the UMass Lowell Magazine, which features ChancellorMartin T. Meehan’s inauguration, we are publishing his inaugural addressin lieu of the regular letter from the Chancellor.It is with deep humility and a sense of great responsibilitythat I accept the honor of becoming the second chancellor ofthis great institution, the University of Massachusetts Lowell.I am the second chancellor of UMass Lowell but I am thefourteenth leader of the institution and its predecessor schools,founded in the 1890s.Our roots run deep into this land.This region was the cradle of the American Revolution andremains a fountain-head of American innovation.Lowell gave our nation an Industrial Revolution.More recently, our region spearheaded the InformationRevolution.This region, this watershed, is synonymous with invention,entrepreneurship, industry, philosophy, literature, environmentalism, healthcare and education.Think about our scientists and engineers like James B.Francis and An Wang.Consider our writers such as Anne Bradstreet, Henry DavidThoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson.And this University continues to build on that proud legacy.We want the world to know we are one of just fourNational Science Foundation centers of excellence innanomanufacturing.We have the nation’s only master of music program inSound Recording Technology, and our graduates are winningGrammy Awards.We have scientists who are engaged in groundbreakingresearch in limb regeneration.Our MBA program is recognized by the Princeton Reviewas one of the best in the country.The Graduate School of Education is a leader in STEMpipeline initiatives.Our nursing graduates are caring for people in every hospital,medical center and clinic in the region.Our scholars have made Lowell the world’s hot spot forresearch on Jack Kerouac.At a recent Plastics Engineering conference in Germany,150 industry leaders in attendance were our alumni.And with opening day at Fenway Park about ninety-eighthours away we want the world to know that our engineers testall the baseballs used in Major League Baseball.These are only some of the good things happening on thiscampus every day, and there are many more.And this is a very good thing.Our region depends on the University being world class,not only in a few areas, but across the spectrum of disciplines.This University is different from many private colleges inthe Commonwealth.The majority of our graduatesstay here to work and raisefamilies, to create businesses andjobs, to contribute to civic andcultural life.The role that this Universityplays in the development of theintellect and character of ourstudents cannot be overstated.We offer more than justworld-class scholarship.We offer hope for the advancement and enlightenment ofeach student who walks through our doors.And we offer hope for the continued progress and prosperityof our community.Today on this campus, 12,000 resident, commuter and onlinestudents of all backgrounds pursue bachelor’s, master’s anddoctoral degrees.These students are the stewards, leaders, healers and buildersof tomorrow.I want to talk about one of our students, an exceptionalyoung woman who captures the spirit of UMass Lowell. RachelCarnes is a senior from Haverhill. In high school, she says, shedidn’t have a clear plan for her future. But then she wasaccepted at UMass Lowell and she saw it as a chance to takea new direction. She’s a business major on the Dean’s List.Everything was going well, until one terrible morning inJanuary, Rachel was sitting on a bench in front of the librarywhen a pickup truck roared out of control, jumped the curband struck her. She sustained life-threatening injuries.Since then she has fought her way back through intensivemedical care and rehabilitation.Last week, miraculously, Rachel returned to school.Her determination mirrors the strengths of so many at thisinstitution who overcome adversity to get an education.Rachel, you, like most of our students, have been workingand borrowing to pay the cost of your education.Well, thanks to the generosity of donors to these inauguralactivities, I am happy to announce you will be the firstrecipient of the Chancellor Martin T. Meehan EducationalExcellence Scholarship to cover your outstanding costsand loans.As we look to the future, we must start by acknowledgingthat the University exists in the most competitive educationalenvironment in its history and we must rise to that challenge.We live in a global society and UMass Lowell must bepart of that.We live in a knowledge economy and we must contributeand compete.Continued on Page 20

CampusNewsColleges - Arts and SciencesResearcher’s Work Makes Listof 100 Top Science StoriesSince the 1960s, scientists have known thatduring a severe geomagnetic storm, the Earth’smagnetosphere — the region around our planetcontrolled by its magnetic field — can generatehighly energeticelectrons capable ofcrippling orbitingsatellites and posinga radiation hazardto spacewalkingastronauts. Scientistshave wondered howthese “killer” electronscould attain such highenergies and travelDiscover magazine’snearly at the speedJanuary 2008 issue.of light.In June 2007 an international team ofresearchers led by Dr. Qiugang Zong of theUML Center for Atmospheric Researchpublished findings that finally shed light onthis mystery. Their discovery ranked No. 37 inDiscover magazine’s 100 Top Science Stories of2007. UMass Lowell is the only public university in New England to be featured on the list,which was the cover story for the January 2008issue of Discover, the nation’s leading monthlypopular magazine on science and technology.State Funds 97K Grant toMake Lowell Seniors CountWhen Lowell’s disparate (and growing) seniorpopulation was analyzed eight years ago, manyelderly people weren’t included because of language barriers and social isolation. This time,UMass Lowell Asst. Prof. Andy Hostetler wantsto get it right and ensure that critically neededservices are made available to those in need.Andy HostetlerHostetler and his collaborators on the “LowellSeniors Count” project, including the Lowell Senior Center, LowellCommunity Health Center and the City of Lowell’s Division ofPlanning and Development, earned two grants totaling 97,000 fromthe Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The grants are fundinga comprehensive, interviewer-administered census covering health,well-being and safety/security issues.“The effort places hundreds of trained volunteers — including manybilingual representatives — directly within communities to increase participation and foster community outreach, especially among SoutheastAsian, Portugese, African and Latino populations,” says Hostetler.The project, part of the City of Lowell’s ten-year plan to end homelessness, will present a comprehensive portrait of Lowell seniors’ health, wellbeing and quality of life, to properly identify the resources and servicesneeded to achieve what Hostetler terms “optimal aging” within the city.Disabled Youngsters Play Video GamesDesigned by UML StudentsZong and his colleagues, who include PaulSong, co-director of the Center, and researchassistant Xuzhi Zhou, determined that duringa severe geomagnetic storm, the solar wind —a continuous high-speed stream of chargedparticles from the sun —impacts and compresses the daytime side of Earth’s magnetosphere,triggering instabilities along the magnetosphere’s boundary.These instabilities create Ultra LowFrequency electromagnetic waves, which inturn produce killer electrons. Following astorm, electrons can be energized up to amillion electron volts or more and acceleratedup to 94 percent of the speed of light.2UMASS LOWELL MAGAZINESUMMER 2008Youngsters at the Franciscan Hospital for Children’s Kennedy DaySchool in Brighton play and enjoy computer video games thanksto students in Asst. Prof. Fred Martin’s software engineering class.Martin and his students visited the school to present several simple,interactive games that the students had developed specificallywith the children’s multiple physical and developmentaldisabilities in mind.

CampusNewsAsperger’s Intervention Program Combines Psychology with MusicFor one mom, the first clue thatsomething was wrong came when herinfant daughter — still in a car seat —grew so frustrated that she had whatappeared to be an epileptic seizure.For another mother, it wasn’t untilher son had tremendous difficultymaking friends that it became clearsomething was wrong.For both of these parents, and thousands of others, the challengesfacing their children are caused byAsperger’s Syndrome, one of severalpervasive development disorders onthe autism spectrum.First described in 1944 by HansAsperger, an Austrian doctor, thedisorder has only recently come intomainstream consciousness, with anestimated three out of 10,000 peopleaffected. Those with the disorder oftenhave difficulty interacting with others,and generally do not make friends easily. They sometimes have trouble usingfacial expressions and understandingbody language, and can have problemscomprehending language in context.They typically have a limited range ofinterests, and can develop an intense,almost obsessive focus in a few areas.Many are exceptionally talented,and most are highly verbal, makingthe diagnosis difficult until aboutage three.For fourteen high-functioning teensand young adults with autism spectrumdisorders — mostly Asperger’s — arecent intervention program developed by UMass Lowell Profs. AshleighHillier of psychology and Gena Greherof music encouraged communicationand creativity through an eight-weekmusic program.“We created a program we called‘SoundScapes,’ which incorporatedmusic to help people with Asperger’sfeel less stressed and more comfortablesocially,” says Hillier. Seven studentvolunteers from music education andpsychology helped implement thesessions, which featured music-listening exercises and technology-basedcreation activities. The programconcluded with an exercise in whichparticipants created and starred intheir own videos, complete withmusic, which they shared with familyand friends in a standing-roomonly celebration.Volunteers and participants in the “SoundScapes” music intervention program for peoplewith Asperger’s SyndromeGreenway Development Chronicles History of the Concord RiverIn 1839, Henry David Thoreau and his brother boated on the Concord River,but when they reached Lowell, they took the Middlesex Canal to avoid the city.“We did not care to loiter in this part of our voyage,” said Thoreau, put off by theindustrialized section of the waterway.Soon, thanks to the efforts of the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust (LPCT),the Tsongas Center, the Lowell National Historical Parks (LNHP) and Chad Montrie,assistant professor of history, scores of others will be able to enjoy access to a greenwayChad Montriedeveloped on the banks of the last two miles of the historic river. The LPCT is collaborating with supporters to create an accessible, welcoming place to connect the city’s major public spaces, includingShedd and Rogers parks, and the collection of walkways developed by the Lowell National Historical Parks.Montrie sees the development of the greenway as an opportunity to chronicle the river’s significant social, economicand environmental history. Recently, he received one of six awards from the University Research & Scholarship Fundto support his efforts on the project.“My goal is to create an outdoor classroom — primarily for students in grades 7 through 10 — where the relevanceof the river is easily demonstrated,” says Montrie, who is working with the LPCT, the Tsongas Center and the LNHPto develop resources to create an outdoor classroom complete with a documentary film, adaptable walking tour andwebsite (lowellandtrust.org/ConcordRiver).UMASS LOWELL MAGAZINESUMMER 20083

CampusNewsStudents Create Toys forLocal Zoos’ Big CatsColleges - HealthThe “big cats” at Zoo New England’s Franklin Park Zooin Boston and Stone Zoo in Stoneham are playing withmore than balls of yarn these days, thanks to a group ofUML freshman engineering students.Nearly four hundred students participated in a collaborative service-learning project with Zoo New England as partof the University’s Introduction to Engineering course,taught by Prof. David Kazmer and Dr. Stephen Johnston ofthe UML’s Department of Plastics Engineering. The project required students to develop safe, innovative enrichment devices that would encourage the cats to interactwith their environment in ways similar to how they wouldin the wild.The teams demonstrated their finished projects to University faculty, staff, administrators and officials of ZooNew England in December. The more than 30 projectsturned over to the zoo ranged from simple devices suchas a large, hard-plastic ball mounted on a spring to morecomplex setups such as an artificial rain machine. The students incorporated treats, exotic sounds and scents, fog,soap bubbles, streams of water and various physical shapesand textures into their designs to stimulate the cats’ senses.“Overall, I was overwhelmed by the results of thiscollaboration,” said John Linehan, president and CEOof Zoo New England. “Some of the concepts displayedincredible creativity.”“The students had abudget of only 10 perperson,” Kazmer says,“and many of the bestprojects relied heavilyon free or donatedmaterials, such aslogs, scrap metal andused drums.”Student Joseph Fournierdemonstrates the “Ball ona Spring” device that heand classmate LouayAyoub created for thezoos’ big cats.Nursing faculty and state officials at the grant announcements forreducing racial and ethnic health disparities were, from left,Asst.
