FROMTHE EDITOREditor’sPageThere’s something aboutSaint Mary’sIDeb NahrgangSaint Mary’sMagazine editor2SAINT MARY’S MAGAZINEn between magazines this year, I lost myfather unexpectedly.He was the kind of guy who alwaysmade time during his farm chores to giveme a wheelbarrow ride or to buy a glass oflemonade from my roadside stand — andhe’d tip me extra.He had the uncanny ability to look atan enormous field full of clover and pickout a four-leaf clover in a split second; infact, he had that same amazing ability tofind the bright side of everything, evenwhen it was hard to see through thedarkness.Those who knew him knew he wouldnever complain — except for a brief stay ata nursing home, where they fed himbroccoli for every meal.He will be forever missed. The lessonshe’s taught me in life and the wonderfulmemories will last eternally.One of those lessons was about theimportance of friends and family. Theoutpouring of care and concern from myfamily here at Saint Mary’s University wastouching. It’s the kind of support that hastremendous healing power.There’s something about Saint Mary’sthat is hard to describe to an outsider. It’slike a secret, known only to those whohave worked or attended classes here. Butit’s a secret worth sharing.This indescribable something is why,for so many families, Saint Mary’s hasmeant more than four years of education.First-generation alumni have conveyed theirlove of this university to their youngerbrothers and sisters, children,grandchildren, nieces and nephews andextended family who are following in theiracademic footsteps.In this issue, we talk to two familieswho have left — and are continuing to leave— their legacies at Saint Mary’s. It’s ourattempt to capture what it is about TerraceHeights that has been so special to thesefamilies. Humble thanks to the Mullinsesand Jungbauers for sharing generations ofpersonal stories and memories.While the heart and spirit ofSaint Mary’s has remained the samethroughout its history, we also want to keepyou up to date about some exciting newinitiatives. SMU is stepping forward ineducational advancements, providingunique opportunities for our students, andtrying to spread a little “something” acrossthe globe — including to China.And, we’re sharing that “something”through alumni events, including upcomingHomecoming and Cardinal ‘M’ Clubweekend activities and the recent ChicagoConvention. Faculty and staff have alsoaccepted the ambitious challenge of beingone of the top 20 teaching institutions inthe United States by the year 2012. We’reready to shout our Cardinal pride from therooftops, and we invite you to join us.We continue to be proud of the resultsof the National Survey of StudentEngagement, through which our studentsconsistently reported they’re getting aunique and highly personal experience herethat will forever make a difference in theirlives.We hope you enjoy this issue.

Editor’s PageNews and ViewsAn ambitious goal for Saint Mary’sTeaching excellence will be our focusWhen he arrived in Minnesota lastJune, Brother President Craig Franztalked with faculty, staff andstudents about their dreams andhopes for Saint Mary’s University.He found widespread ownership ofthe Lasallian mission to “awaken,nurture, and empower learners toethical lives of service andleadership.”Throughout the institution, thechallenge of educating students sothey can becometransformers of societywas a message whichresonatedpowerfully amongall at Saint Mary’s.Brother Craigobserved that theuniversity has anuncommonly largenumber of highlyeffective, caring andknowledgeable teachers. With thatrecognition came the opportunity tomake more widely known ourcapabilities to an audience ofalumni, friends and prospectivestudents.And so, at the beginning-of-theyear workshop, Brother Craig askedfaculty and staff to accept thechallenge of developing SaintMary’s into a nationally recognizedteaching institution. The faculty’sresponse to this invitation was aspontaneous standing ovation ofendorsement.The following is condensedfrom Brother Craig’s workshopremarks.MOVING GOOD TEACHINGTOWARD NATIONALEXCELLENCESaint Mary’s professors realize thatteaching is a God-given talentwhich they must continually refinein order to more effectively guide4SAINT MARY’S MAGAZINE2012, which marks the 100thanniversary of our founding.TURNING OUR GOALSINTO ACTIONour students. Teaching isnot a “job” but rather avocational dedication ofone’s energies to promote thevery best in others.Like any talent, teachingrequires constant self-assessmentand personal updating. Ourteachers are constantly intransformation, always trying toimprove their ability to affectpositively the ways students think,learn and create.Although there are manyinstitutions of higher learning in theUnited States — approximately4,000 by recent count — SaintMary’s must strive to be among thevery best of teaching institutions ifwe are to really make our mark onthe world, through our students.Already, we are locally recognizedfor the quality of teaching in ourclassrooms.It seems only reasonable andprudent that we should hone ouralready strong reputation forteaching and learning so as to trulydistinguish our wonderfuluniversity. We will work to be oneof the top 20 teaching institutionsin the United States by the yearHow will our goals translate intoplans and action? As we worktogether to garner nationaldistinction as one of the topteaching schools in the country, weask for everyone’s support andadvice on what can be done tomake our teaching stronger, moreeffective and better serve learners’needs. Some of our faculty havealready begun discussion groups,best-practices seminars, anddiscussions with other notableteaching institutions. Otheropportunities for facultyengagement will soon flow fromconversations on department andschool levels.We have engaged learnedsocieties for advice on establishingappropriate milestones andmeasuring our success. Foundationssupporting teaching excellence arebeing contacted. We are movingforward quickly, vibrantly, andenthusiastically with this initiative.To achieve the distinction we desirein seven years requires totalcommitment at all levels.WHAT ARE THEEXPECTED BENEFITS?The positive consequences of thisambitious plan are legion. Studentswill be well-served as teachers usethe very latest educationaltechniques to help them learn.Institutions around the country willknow that our graduates aresuperbly prepared because theycome from rigorous courses whichare exceptionally well-taught.Outside instructors will aspireto become part of this institution —a university which courageouslySPRING 2006

NEWS AND VIEWSsets lofty goals and then reachesthem through teamwork, creativityand dedication to what bestengages our students. Benefactorsand friends of the university willwant to partner in supporting thededication and talent of ourprofessional staff.HOW WILL WE KNOWWE HAVE SUCCEEDED?Our goal is that knowledgeableeducators and higher educationauthorities will recognize SaintMary’s as a “top 20” teachinginstitution. Our comparison shouldbe against other universities similarto Saint Mary’s. Our success willresult from not only the recognitionfrom independent third-partyauthorities, but also in the profitablejourney to strengthen our teachingand learning.Striving to be one of the top20 teaching institutions in thecountry is a bold, ambitious andcourageous challenge. When Idiscuss this with groups of faculty,they readily and enthusiasticallyaccept the quest to be nationallyrecognized. In order to besuccessful, we must be true to theLasallian vision, and steadfast tothe achievement of teachingexcellence. Working together, wecan make it so!
