University of San Diego Arcnives

Dear Frie1tdd 1

The past two decades have marked an unparalleled period in the history of the Unive1·sity of San Diego . In 1971, when I joined the university as presi-

dent, the institution was barely beyond infancy; it has blossomed and matured in the succeeding 20 years to earn 1·egional and national distinction. USD's faculty, students and academic p1·ograms have achieved numerous noteworthy accomplishments. The past 10 years, in particular, have been an exciting and rewarding decade at Alcala Park. Bold new academic ventures such as the marine studies, electrical engineering and international business programs have been launched to meet com- munity needs. Through the generous support of many loyal benefactors, USO completed one capital fund-raising campaign for more than $15 million and is close to completing a second for $47.5 million. Sociology Professor Judy Liu was named California Professor of the Year in 1990-a prime example of the excellent teaching faculty who serve the university. Despite much change, the university's basic mis- sion remains unaltered. USO is still committed to the vision expressed by its founde1·s, a vision rooted in the principles of academic excellence, the liberal arts tradition and strong teaching. A USO educa- tion still emphasizes religious orientation, tradi- tional values and a holistic approach-all built on the foundation of Catholicism and a belief in God and in the dignity of each human being. This 1990 President's Report summarizes the highlights of USD's past 20 years. These highlights- indeed all of the university's achievements- represent the combined energies of many, many members of the USO family. All of you who have supported the university's efforts these past two decades share in the remarkable record USO has compiled. As we review our journey to date, let us renew our commitment to the university and its future.

Art.J anu Scienced The College of Arts and Sciences has served as the edu- cational heart of USD since the college's 1952 founding, prepa1·- ing all students with the histor-

ical perspective and communication skills critical to problem-solving in a modern society. During the past 20 years the university has enriched the liberal arts experience by introducing innovations such as a Freshman Preceptorial and an Honm·s Program, and reorganizing core course requirements into a Foundations Curriculum. In addition, the college introduced bold new academic ventures, including a marine studies program offered in cooperation with the Hubbs Marine Research Cente1·, Sea Wodd Research Institute, and a master of fine arts in dra- matic arts program created in conjunction with the Old Globe Theatre.

than 1,200 undergraduate and 400 graduate stu- dents and 54 full-time faculty today. Among the school's distinctions which have earned it glowing marks from the San Diego business community: a master of international business graduate program ranked among the top 15 in the nation, a full-time faculty whose members all hold doctorates, and Olin Hall, one of the most modern business school facilities in the nation, complete with state-of-the- art audio-visual, computer and communication equipment.

Catholic Tra'Jition The Catholic tradition perme- ates all dimensions of USD- from the classroom to the base- ball diamond. That tradition has called the university since

its founding to treat each individual with dignity and to examine the Catholic legacy as the basis for a continuing search for meaning in contemporary life. Among the primary examples of the university's commitment to these historical roots during Dr. Hughes' presidency: a vibrant Campus Minis try program, a burgeoning community volunteer pro- gram and a continued emphasis on course require- ments for all students in philosophy and religious studies .

to recruit and support a more racially and culturally diverse campus community. One sign of this commitment: minorities composed 26 percent of the 1990 fall freshman class. The drive to diver- sify at all levels of the university will remain a priority in the future.

Fi1ta1tceJ After 20 years of prudent man- agement of USD's financial resources, the university stands on firm financial ground for the short term. The annual

operating budget has balanced for 17 consecutive years. From a long-term perspective, increasing the univers ity's endowment remains a priority. The "Education for a New Age" fund-raising campaign, now in its final phase, will add some $31 million to the endowment.

Hoium A founding precept from which the university has never wavered is the concept of providing students with a holis- tic education - one that incor-

porates intellectual, physical, social and spiritual development. Why? USD subscribes to the convic- tion that an excellent education has as much to do with learning to live as it does with learning to make a living. That's why the university has initiate d such programs as Freshman Orientation, Campus Minis- try retreats and intramural sports over the years .

Itlter1tatio1iali.1111 Considerable campus attention has been devoted to developing a stronger focus on the in- creasingly international di- mension of daily life. USD's

location-on the sho1·es of the Pacific and a short distance from the inte1·national border with Mexico-makes it fertile territory for developing such perspective. Among the efforts undertaken to date to nurture an inte1·national outlook: the addi- tion of foreign study components in courses across the curriculum, introduction of language courses in Japanese and Chinese, and creation of a master of international business degree program.

freedom of inquiry and expression rooted in the Catholic tradition. During the last 20 years USD has confirmed its commitment to this pui·suit by encouraging its students to explore the world both inside and outside their classrooms. Thus-in addi- tion to classwork-students complete internships with San Diego organizations, volunteer their time with community service groups and bring nationally known speakers to campus. page 11i11e

Law School The larges t law school s outh of Los Angeles now stands poised to take its place among the great law schools in the coun- try. A faculty sprinkled with

nationally known legal scholars daily challenges a student body of more than 1,100. Progrnms in public interest, the environment and international rela- tions are highly regarded. The school's new Pardee Legal Research Center (1990) gives it one of the top research facilities in the United States. Alumni represent a growing force in the San Diego-area legal community.

Optimum Optimism has c haracterized the spirit of the university com- munity since the in st itu t ion 's birth. USO's people- from the dedicated faculty who enthusi-

astically support their eager students to the gen- erous trustees who invest millions of dollars in the university's futul·e-have expressed an ongoing optimism about this inst itution which has carried it to remarkable level s of accomplishment in a s hort historical time frame.

Profe.1.1or.1 USO professors form the back- bone of the university's educa- tional experience. Their com- mitment to teaching students and providing opportunities

for close student-teacher interaction distinguishes a USO education from that offered by other univer- sities in the region. A tangible sign of the faculty's preparedness: more than 90 percent of the 239 full- time faculty hold a doctorate or terminal degree in their field. Among the full-time teaching faculty for graduate programs, 100 percent hold doctoral degrees.

designed to serve additional students. A student body which in earlier years was composed mainly of Southern California residents now counts nearly half its students from outside California. The 1990 entering freshman class held a mean high school grade point average of 3.35 in coll ege preparatory classes and mean SAT scores of 492, verba l, and 539, math.

Teaching The teaching-learning process is the foca l point of the univer- sity's daily activit ies . That commitment remains as firm today as when USD's founders

first voiced the concept. The university h as cu lti- vated a fertile teaching-learning environment by hiring professors whose first priority is teaching, by keeping t he student-teacher classroom ratio to 18 :l, and by prnviding professors w ith the up-to- date resources required to challenge their students in new dimensions.

Ulllimiteu An unlimited futu1·e awaits USO. Challenges await, too, particularly concerns ove1· the cost of private higher educa- tion and the desire to diversify

the student body and campus community rncially and culturally. But past challenges have only spurred the university to seek creative solutions. There is every 1·eason to believe that philosophy will prevail in the future-particulai-ly when so many care so deeply about USO and the importance of its values-oriented educational mission.

Value.1 An education steeped in values such as honesty, integrity, com- passion, loyalty, freedom and justice 1·emains at the core of the USO experience. The uni-

versity believes those values should be both "taught" within the fabric of the curriculum and "caught" within the ethos of the campus. That belief is reAected in many forms, ranging from academic courses in philosophy and religious studies to stu- dent activities such as Campus Ministry retreats and house-building expeditions to Tijuana.

Xfactor Nearly every successful organ- ization can point to some attribute which propels it to a level of success unattainable by its competitors. At USD, that

factor is the character of the people who commit their lives to ensuring the success of the university. Time and time again dut·ing the past 20 years, an individual or group of individuals has stepped for- ward in a time of need to supply an idea, a plan or financial resources. That strength of character represents invaluable treasure to the university.

Youthful1tedd In 1947 the university's Alcala Park campus was nothing more than a barren mesa overlooking Mission Bay. By 1972, enroll- ment topped 2,500 and a newly

merged University of San Diego was operating. By the fall of 1990, enrollment ·was more than 6,000, several modern new facilities were constructed and U.S. NewJ an'iJ Worl'iJ Report had rated USD the fourth best regional college in the ,vest. How many institutions of similar youth can point to such remarkable progress? Very few. That fact alone portends a university future filled with great expectations.
