"There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed." -Albert Schweitzer


The University of San Diego is an independent Catholic institution of higher education located on 180 acres overlooking San Diego's Mission Bay. USO is known for its commitment to teaching, the liberal arts, the formation of values and community involvement. The institution takes pride in the personalized approach and holistic view of students it brings to the educational process. Chartered in 1949, USO enrolls nearly 6,000 students who may choose from more than 50 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The university's academic units include the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Schools of Business Administration, Education, Law and Nursing. The School of Graduate and Continuing Education coor- dinates the graduate programs of all schools with the exception of the Law School. Throughout its history, USO has remained committed to the ideals of liberal education and to recognizing the dignity of men and women as human beings and as creatures of God. As a Catholic institution, the university is committed to examination of the Catholic tradition as the basis of a continu- ing search for meaning in contemporary life.



That is the type of civic leadership so critical to creating a compassionate com- munity in which the dignity of all human beings is valued and respected . Here at the University of San Diego, we embrace the concept of community ser- vice. The university-from its students to its faculty, from its staff to its trustees-is involved on a daily basis in activities which enrich the life of the San Diego community. Our students, for example, travel to Tijuana regularly to build homes for the poor. They collect food and clothing for San Diego's needy. Faculty members serve on the governing boards of a host of community organizations, encompassing the Old Globe Theatre to Habitat for Human ity. Other USO employees give generously of their time to community efforts like migrant worker outreach programs and youth ministry activities. This year's President's Report highlights a few of those special individuals we count among the USO family who serve as " heroes" for altruism. They are generous men and women who enrich not only the life of our university community-but more importantly, the San Diego community at large. As we sa lute these individuals, let their stories give you inspiration and courage.

G iving back to your community is a time-tested notion in America. It began with our nation's founders, who dedicated their efforts-and often their lives-to form- ing the republic. The San Diego we know today results from past decades of selflessness car- ried out by far-sighted individuals who put concern for their fellow citizens and the common good at the top of their priorities. Alonzo Horton, George Marston, John Spreckels and Kate Sessions-people who shaped for all time the face of downtown and the splendor of Balboa Park-were among the citizens whose names ring out from the past. Others, like USO founders Bishop Charles Buddy and Mother Rosalie Hill, also come to mind . The tradition con- tinues today through the efforts of people like Joan Kroc, Ernest Hahn, Helen Copley and others. Does high-mindedness require a high station? Not at all . The true test of com- mitment to public service is demonstrated equally by the person next door as well as the one in the corporate boardroom . Every day in San Diego, countless individuals com- plete myriad volunteer tasks, from visiting the elderly and sick to cleaning up our beaches and streets; from serving Girl Scouts as troop leaders to serving the homeless in soup kitchens.




most ambitious project to date in the United States will unfold here. During the third week in June former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalyn, will join 2,000 volunteers in building more than 100 houses in San Diego and Tijuana . " Locally, all of our work so far has been done in Tijuana , where we moved 33 families into homes not long ago," Dr. Briscoe explains. " Habitat likes to say we are not just building homes, but building communities. And it's clear that lives get changed ." "My strongest point of view is to live my faith, to serve other people." -Dennis Briscoe He tells the story of one family from the first Habitat project in Georgia, a tale of a home built with sweat equity and a no- interest mortgage finally paid off. And how a couple who never made it past grade school eventually saw all of their children graduate from college. " Having the chance to own their own home completely changed their expectations for what's possible," he observes. Dr. Briscoe remembers vividly the life experiences which shaped his own perceptions about bringing change to the status quo. In 1957, his seventh grade teacher talked a lot about politics and world affairs. Since that time, he says, " Politics has always been a dream, or rather causes and issues have been ."


He shatters the stereotypical image of a number-crunching business professor. People and pain rather than dollars and cents make up his calling card . He relishes his memberships in the peace organization Beyond War and the home building association Habitat for Humanity. As a member of the universi- ty's Social Issues Committee, he encourages students to discover the world of social activism. "We seem to be moving into a value set that it's okay to do volunteer work;' he reflects . "This campus encourages that; it's one of the reasons I like it here."

Dennis Briscoe subscribes to the philosophy that almost anything is possible, if only one's expectations are set high enough . He validated that observation when he traveled to Peru with his wife and son to build homes for the poor. He confirmed it again in San Diego, where he started a chapter of Habitat for

Humanity, an organization which has provided some 4,000 homes for the working poor worldwide. " Everybody in this town believes you can't do low income housing in San Diego," says Dr. Briscoe, who has served as president of Habitat's San Diego-Tijuana chapter the past two years. Yet, Habitat's


His religious upbringing was another cardinal factor. " Somewhere early on I defined myself as a lay minister, and I have never seen it differently. I thought seriously about entering the seminary when I was in college, even applied for a scholar- ship. But I have never been comfortable proselytizing. My strongest point of view is to live my faith , to serve other people." Then a few years ago, Dr. Briscoe was approached by representatives from Beyond War. " They really brought me back to my roots. It was a case of ·wow, where have you guys been!' " He started a local chapter of Beyond War, and subsequently has helped organize several organizations involved in social justice causes. " I like to talk, to make the presenta- tions, but I have a strong need to be autonomous, and not much interest in management, once things get going . That's why teaching fits-I like the people side of business, not the numbers side." Dr. Briscoe sees nothing unusual about a business professor devoting much of his time to causes. "There probably is a stereotype of business professors, business- men, of not being involved . But my experi- ence has been very different. Maybe this campus is unique, but I think the stereotype is wrong . Most successful businessmen are involved ."


and I loved it!" she say s, rolling her eyes skyward . That experience, as well as happy memories of her own grade school years, catapulted Moreland toward teaching, a pro- fession she has dedicated herself to at elementary schools in Ramona for the past 10 years. Reflecting on her classroom philos- ophy, Moreland says it is shaped by her childhood memories of a teacher always being there when she needed direction. "Teachers always challenged me and drove me to do better, try harder. But I always wondered about the kids who weren't getting all A's and weren't in the highest reading group. Was someone there for them?" "When you look back at life, what else is there but caring for each other?" -Adrienne Moreland At Ramona's Mt. Woodson Elemen- tary School, it is the outgoing Moreland who is there for chiIden who are not tops in their class or who struggle to get through their lessons from day to day. " These are the kids who traditionally have fallen through the cracks and were labeled losers early in life;· she says softly. "When I see their self-esteem bolstered by little successes in the classroom, I feel good knowing I was a part of that. And one day, perhaps these students will be well-adjusted contributors to society, because we inter-



S he is a self-described eternal optimist who hopes people will remember that she cared . Caring, she says, is a virtue that effects change when one teaches academically challenged youngsters-as she has done for the past decade. Her commitment hasn't gone unnoticed . In 1989 she was one of five educators nationally to be presented with the Christa McAuliffe Award by the National Foundation for the Improvement of Education.

told me I could do whatever I set my mind to," says the Los Angeles native. Moreland set her mind on pursuing a teaching career after being ensnared by a friend to help teach a CCD class. "I was 15 years old and spending my Saturdays with a group of children-who definitely were not sent from heaven and who definitely had better things to do than be in a CCD class-

Adrienne Moreland '78 remembers crying as a young girl when she was sick, upset that she wouldn't be able to go to school. " I know that sounds weird," she laughs, " but I love to learn, and the chal- lenge of school excited me." Moreland attributes that love to her most important role model-her mother. " My mother always


vened early enough to steer them on the right course." Moreland says she is excited about the possibility of making a difference in the lives of children on a wider sca le through the Christa McAuliffe Institute for Educa- tional Pioneering, an organization designed to stimulate teacher exploration into the art and science of teaching . " The innovations and changes we make through the institute could have far-reaching effects," she envisions. And after all, she reasons, " When you look back at life, what else is there but caring for each other?"

" So then Ijust stayed quiet and I thought, 'What do I do, what do I do?' But I realize so much more now it's not what you do, it's just being there. And then she started sharing with me all her past experiences." If Martinez speaks with wisdom beyond her 21 years about being there for others, it's because she's been active in church and school groups since she was a youngster. Serving others, she points out, is an attitude she learned from the example set by her parents. " It's not something my parents made us do. I saw that helping someone else also gives you a good feeling, like you've "Something the bishop said has stuck with me ... if you want to help people you've got to know them; you've got to get your feet dirty; you've got to get involved." -Rosario Martinez achieved something. It makes me feel like I'm doing better, like I'm growing." Martinez credits San Diego Bishop Leo Maher, who appointed her youth repre- sentative for the San Diego Diocesan Pastoral Council when she was 19, with also shaping her perspective about service. "Something the bishop said has stuck with me, and that is, if you want to help people you've got to know them; you've got to get your feet dirty; you've got to get involved. " I think I've been lucky. I'm discover-

S he loves life. The message radiates from her sparkling eyes before she opens her mouth to speak. It echoes in her easy, heartfelt laugh . She demonstrates her sentiments by serving as a counselor to pregnant girls at the downtown Catholic Charities' Maternal, Infant and Adoption Services. Ajunior psychology major and a cheerleader at USO, she says sharing her gifts in service to others is a guiding principle in her life.

You read all this in the newspaper, but it's different when you're actually there." Martinez says she better understands basic human needs because of her counsel- ing experiences. She recalls driving to Mercy Hospital one afternoon during rush hour with a 17-year-old girl who appeared to be suffering a miscarriage. While they waited nervously at the hospital for the doctor, Martinez ran out of comforting words.

Rosario Martinez speaks rapidly, her words accented by emotion, as she recounts how her views about the equitableness of life were pierced as she became the confi- dant of pregnant teenagers. " I learned more about life. Like why don't we have more housing, why don't we have child care, why doesn't the county provide something better, why are we having all these problems with sexual abuse?


ing now that I'm getting older how many gifts I have. I never said: Tm going to be a non-profit, social service person, gung ho.' It was just heading that way. Certain people, like Father Bud, like Eddie Taylor, like Judy Rauner, focused me in a certain direction . Sometimes it takes other people to see what you have, and then you start seeing it." Does Martinez ever feel she's carry- ing the weight of the world on her young shoulders? "Are you kidding?" she laughs. " Prayer is big-time in my life. It's what keeps me going."



"in those days you did not say no when it came to the advance of women in medicine. You did it not just for yourself but for all women ." She relishes the gift of faith she has received from her church, a gift she repays through service in many capacities, from the parish to the international level. Similarly, she feels special fondness toward USO, on whose board of trustees she has served since !952. But, the tiny dynamo readily admits, her friendship with Mother Teresa-which blossomed after a personal meeting in !960- has deepened her understanding of love and charity in wonderful new dimensions. " Mother Teresa reminded me that we must learn to see Christ in everyone we encounter, not only in the obviously disad- "You can't make excuses around Mother Teresa. There is no such thing as can't in her world. You just do it." -Anita Figueredo vantaged," she says. " Here I was with all of these people in my life, and it caused me to re-examine those relationships. I was meet- ing all their needs, but it's true-the neediest person may be the one who sits across from you at the breakfast table." She also learned, "You can't make excuses around Mother Teresa. There is no such thing as can't in her world. You just do it," she says, her eyes twinkling . Dr. Figueredo joined Mother Teresa's


Her home is likely the only La Jolla beachfront property that serves as a warehouse for used clothing destined for various shelters for the needy. It is almost certainly the only home where, nestled alongside the family photo albums in the living room, are scrapbooks filled with letters from Mother Teresa as well as newspaper clippings about the world famous friend to the poor. Her more than 30-year friendship with Mother Teresa has deepened her faith and her resolve to do what she can to improve the quality of life for the poor.

She gained new insights into com- passion after deciding as a young woman to pursue a career in the medical profession, a profession through which she has donated her services to the needy for years. The fiesty mother of nine chose to study oncology because she was asked to accept a position at New York's Memorial Cancer Center and

Looking back, Dr. Anita Figueredo traces the beginning of her lifelong commit- ment to serving others to her childhood in New York, when she looked forward to helping her mother house and feed students and new immigrants from their native Costa Rica. " We learned early about the giving of hospitality," Dr. Figueredo says simply.


Co-Workers, a group of lay people who help the Missionaries of Charity. In 1970, at Mother Teresa's request, she accepted the position of regional chairperson of the organization . Since Mother Teresa's visit to Tijuana in 1988, the Missionaries of Charity have brought three groups of nuns, brothers and all of their priests to the city, establishing facilities to house and feed the poor. Dr. Figueredo is available to the clinic staffs in Tijuana every day of the week for consulta- tions and help with problem solving. " My medical work with patients really has been an enormous satisfaction," she says. " It satisfies my need to help people, which is the basis for my involvement. And if you look at it objectively, it's really just another way to help people in need, wherever you find them."


the gulf between rich and poor, Pitard says. " It is so v isual for them. It's in a colonia and they see there's no w ater, no electricity, no trash pick-up, no insulation, sometimes no roofs. These people have nothing. Then our kids see how, with a little bit of time and a little bit of effort, we can make a big dif- ference in their lives." Pitard recalls a poignant moment she shared with a student during one of the trips. " He was a macho athlete kind of guy and he came up to me with tears in his eyes and told me he'd had a 30-minute conversa- tion with a woman, even though he couldn't speak Spanish . They found a way to com- municate, despite the barriers." "One person can make a difference. Two people can make a difference." -MaryE!len Pitard The students also experience revela- tions about happiness, Pitard says. "The kids say, 'These people live maybe 12 people in a place the size of my dorm room, yet they're happy. They're joyful people.' It's very over- whelming ." Preparing and serving meals at the St. Vincent de Paul Center works a similar effect on students. " It is a little bit of reality of what goes on outside of USO," Pitard says. "Students see what hungry people look like. They see it is families with little children, that this problem cuts across the whole fabric of our society."



The wisdom she gained from the nuns of the San Diego College for Women was a turning point in her life, she says softly, thinking back to more than two decades earlier. The biggest lesson, she analyzes, was learning that women could accomplish anything. Her professors offered living proof. She has followed that long-ago inspiration ever since, managing to com- bine marriage and children with generous service to youth, the homeless, the· hungry-both in parish posts and through USD's Campus Ministry Office.

MaryEllen Pitard '69 speaks with fervent passion when serving others is the topic of conversation . " I try to show students that faith is a gift that's meant to be lived, that we're called to care for each other," she says. ''I've always tried to live by the Bible's advice: 'To whom much is given, much is expected .' Even if we're not giving a lot monetarily, we

can give our time."

She exposes USO students to that message in a real world way when she accompanies them to Tijuana to build homes for the destitute or to the St. Vincent de Paul Joan Kroc Center to prepare meals for the homeless in San Diego. ·The home building excursions across the border in particular awaken students to


A member of USD's Campus Ministry staff for the past three-and-a-half years after serving in youth ministry positions for the diocese and teaching high school, Pitard credits her late mother with instilling in her a sense of compassion for those in need. "My mom was my mentor. She was a person of real faith . She raised us telling us that you share what you have. It mushrooms back; you receive so much more than you give." Despite the proportions of the prob- lems Pitard and her young charges tackle, she says she usually doesn't get discouraged. " One person can make a difference. Two people can make a difference. We're not going to change the societal structure or maybe even people's opinions, but we can offer someone a blanket. That's one of my guiding principles."



sored by the Boy Scouts: the rebuilding of Camp Mataguay in the mountains, and the construction of an aquatic center on Fiesta Island for the use of local youth groups. Carlson himself gives back to the community in a number of ways in addition to his involvement with scouting. He par- ticipates in the activities of Volunteers of America, La Jolla Kiwanis Club and Christ Lutheran Church in Pacific Beach . He chairs the Parents Annual Fund organization at USD. In addition, this year he will serve as director of Lutheran Social Services for Southern California. "I think it's very important that those of us who have the advantages that we do give back to the community." -Ron Carlson He sees community organizations as playing a vital role in contributing to a com- munity's quality of life. ' 'I'm a member of the La Jolla Kiwanis Club and organizations like that," he says, "and although they are primarily luncheon clubs and friendship clubs, they do a certain amount of outreach and support of the community. I think they heighten the individual member's awareness of needs in the community." Rather than belabor his own motiva- tion for helping others, Carlson much prefers to talk about worthy community organiza- tions, like his pet project, the Boy Scouts. Ask him if he feels idea listic about


He hopes to end up back where he started-working with kids in a hands-on way. Several years ago he did just that serving as scoutmaster for his sons' Boy Scout troop. More recently, though, he has held posts in the upper echelons of local Boy Scouts administration, serving first as president and now as chairman of the San Diego County Council of Boy Scouts. He enjoys the challenges of the expanded duties, but looks forward to becoming a Sea Scout leader and having the time to show kids the ropes on his 27-foot Catalina sailboat.

Scripps Bank President Ron Carlson believes in the basic goodness of human beings. " Really, I think the average person is good-hearted . If they see a need, and if it's something they're particularly interested in, they'll step right in and help out," he analyzes. " It's just amazing what time and

effort people are willing to spend."

Carlson, the parent of a USD student, sees evidence of that generous spirit in the 10,000 adults who volunteer to support the 42,000 Boy Scouts in San Diego. At the moment, he sees that commitment being manifested through the scouting community's support of two major building projects span-


his efforts to better the community and he replies: " I think it's very important that those of us who have the advantages that we do give back to the community." His actions speaks for themselves.


• The largest fund-raising campaign in the university's history-a S47 .5 million effort designed to boost USO to unparalleled heights of educational excellence-is launched publicly at a festive ceremony. The campaign goals include S31 million to create endowed professorships and special student scholar- ships, and S16.5 million for three buildings.


By almost any yardstick, 1989 was a milestone year at USD's Alcala Park campus. For starters, USD's pursuit of educational excellence was recog- nized nationally in October, when U.S. News and World Report magazine rated the university the fifth best regional college in the western United States. To help propel USO to even greater heights of educational quali- ty, the university launched the big- gest fund-raising drive in its history in January-a S47.5 million effort aimed primarily at increasing the endowment. In addition, 1989 marked the 40th anniversary of the univer- sity's 1949 chartering . The anniver- sary was celebrated with two major attracted more than 700 alumni to campus and publication of The First Forty Years, a book chronicling USD's first four decades.

TOTAL ASSETS (Dollars in millions) 1989



S ome 4,566 individuals, corporations and foundations demonstrated their commit- ment to USO by making financial gifts totaling S6 million during 1988-89 . The gift total included about S4 mil- lion for the Education for a New Age capital campaign and approximately S2 million for the Annual Fund . Gifts to the capital campaign-a S47 .5 million effort aimed primarily at increasing the university's endowment- boosted the campaign past the S25 million mark by December '89. Annual Fund gifts support student scholarships, faculty projects, and provide technical and computer equipment essential to maintaining USD's competitive standing in higher education .
