Waters named interim president

The Montclair State University Board of Trustees has named Gregory L. Waters as interim president. Deputy provost and vice president for Institutional Advancement, Waters will assume his new post the end of next month when President Irvin D. Reid leaves to become the president of Wayne State University in Detroit. Waters will serve as interim president until a new president takes office.

"I'm honored to be selected to serve Montclair State as its interim president as the University approaches its 90th year," Waters said. "Thanks to the vision of Dr. Reid and his predecessors, Montclair State is widely recognized as one of the strongest and most comprehensive public universities in the northeast.

"The richness of our history is matched only by the boldness of our dreams. We take our motto very seriously: Carpe Diem-seize the day. I join our faculty and students in looking forward to the next phase in our development."

Waters joined Montclair State in 1984 as associate vice president for Academic Affairs and as part of the faculty ranks as an English professor. From 1987 to 1989, Waters was acting vice president for Academic Affairs while Provost Dick Lynde served as acting president. Of Waters' appointment, Lynde said, "I'm delighted with the choice of Dr. Waters as interim president. We have worked closely together for the past 10 years and he will continue to have my enthusiastic support in the future. The Board of Trustees could not have selected a better candidate. His leadership will ensure that the University continues to move forward during this transitional period."

In 1994 Waters was named acting vice president for Institutional Advancement, overseeing Alumni Relations, the Annual Fund, the MSU Foundation, Continuing Education and the Communications area, which includes Publications, Public Information, Community Relations and Special Events, and Sports Information. Last year Intercollegiate Athletics was assigned to Waters as well.

Waters has had principal responsibility for the development of the Honors Program and the Global Education Center, and provided leadership for the successful Capital Campaign, which closed this summer at $10 million.

He was instrumental in Montclair State's efforts to achieve university status, and earlier was the writer of the two Challenge Grants that totaled close to $7 million.

A fellow of the Society for Values in Higher Education, Waters has written more than 50 scholarly papers, articles and reviews on topics ranging from 16th-century prose style to telecommunications and its impact on higher education.

He has served as chairman of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities and as a member of the Board of Directors of the American Association of University Administrators. He also has served as a consultant to the National Endowment for the Humanities, Division of State Programs, and worked on several Middle States Evaluation Teams.

Prior to joining Montclair State, Waters was director of Graduate and Special Programs at the University of Michigan at Flint. Prior to that he was special assistant to the chancellor for general education, and a member of the English faculty. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Georgetown University, he earned a master's degree and Ph.D. in English from Rutgers University. He also attended the Institute for Educational Management at Harvard University.

Waters resides in Montclair with his wife, Theresa, a teacher at Washington School in West Orange. Their son, Gregory, is an investment banker with Goldman, Sachs & Co., and their daughter, Deirdre, is a graduate student in psychology.

Alum brings philosophy to the masses

If you ask for a coffee refill at Collage II, a Montclair coffeehouse, your server may not ask, "Regular or decaf?" rather, "Is your cup is half empty or half full?"

Chris Phillips, who recently earned a master's degree in philosophy at Montclair State, has transformed Collage II into "Cafe Socrates," a forum for deep philosophical discussion on select Tuesday evenings. These philosophical discussions, which began a year ago, attract people from all walks of life. "Philosophy has been hoarded too long by academics," said Phillips. "I'm stealing it back for the masses."

The 37-year-old alum said he facilitates group discussions using the Socratic method of inquiry to delve deeper into the subject at hand. "It's not about finding the answers but finding a way to ask the questions, which in a way is the answer," he explained.

"Philosophy can enrich people's existence." Discussions over coffee and sandwiches have included death as a motivation for life and the question, "How do you know yourself and how do you know when to know yourself?"

Cafe Socrates has grown in popularity, Phillips says, because people want to feel that what they say matters. "And it should matter," he added. "Also, they want to develop critical thinking skills. We don't often have an opportunity to do that. We take jobs just to pay the bills and so we don't push ourselves."

After reading an article in 1992 about a scholar who started a cafe in Paris where anyone could discuss philosophy, Phillips went there to learn more about it. That's when he heard about the Advancement of Philosophy for Children Program at Montclair State and enrolled in the graduate program and found that critical thinking is not just for adults. "I've worked with pre-kindergarten children in the Child Care Center, with a third-grade class and with combined fourth- and fifth-grade classes," he said. "It's about turning classrooms into communities of philosophical inquiry. It's about bringing philosophy out of academia and making it a vibrant, relevant part of children's lives." He said philosophy also is a springboard for developing critical thinking skills, which includes imaginative thinking.

"Matt Lipman [of the Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children] has broken all the conceptual and theoretical boundaries," Phillips explained. "He's shown that children, even those emotionally disturbed, are able to engage in a sophisticated, intellectual philosophical inquiry. Lipman discovered this 25 years ago. He's the best-kept secret around. He's out to really create something of lasting value."

Phillips said he applied Lipman's ideas outside the schools. "All people, even children, have a philosophy in life," he said. "They just don't know it."

This coffeehouse philosopher recently moved to San Francisco where he's setting up a similar program, but others are carrying the torch in Montclair. "I believe this will sprout in many different places and I'm glad to have had a part in that," he said. "I just can't get enough philosophy."

Meet the fall head coaches

Head coach Rick Giancola is entering his 15th season with MSU, and has an overall record of 95-47-2. This year, he has a chance to become the second college football coach in the state of New Jersey to win more than 100 games. The 1997 season begins on the road in Cortland, N.Y. In his tenure, Giancola has won five New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) titles and has taken his teams to three National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) tournaments. In 1983, Giancola earned his way into the record books when he won his 53rd game, a new record for football coaching victories

Entering his third year as head coach, Fernando Barboto looks to mold a large recruiting class into seasoned players. In Barboto's first two years, his teams have accumulated a record of 14-19-4. During his first season, he led the Hawks to a mark of 8-7-3 and set a team record with eight shutouts. Barboto is optimistic about his 1997 team, and is looking forward to a winning campaign.

ROB CHESNEY, Men's Soccer
In 1991, Rob Chesney became MSU's 11th head soccer coach. During his six years at the helm, his Red Hawk squad has amassed 79 victories and only 37 losses. Other notable achievements under Chesney's guidance include three trips to the NCAA tournament as well as three trips to the East Coast Athletic Conference tournament. For his efforts, Chesney was twice named "Coach of the Year" by the Collegiate Soccer Association of New Jersey.

With only three days to prepare her new team for the first game of the season, Andie Whitcomb embarked on her first season as head field hockey coach at Montclair State last year. Taking over a program that had won only three games in two years, she accepted the challenge and taught the players to become winners. The highlight of the season came in a 2-1 home upset win against the number two-ranked Division II team in the nation, Bloomsburg College. Ending her rookie season at 7-10, Whitcomb looks to keep building MSU field hockey and make 1997 a year of distinction.

Entering his ninth year as head coach, Brian McLaughlin has accumulated an overall record of 51-34-1. Under the last three years of his tutelage, the women's tennis team has won 27 matches and lost only six. The last two seasons have produced identical 10-1 records, and last season also marked the first time in McLaughlin's tenure that the squad won the NJAC Championship title. McLaughlin looks to 1997 as a year of continuing the winning tradition he has established on the Red Hawk courts.

Coming off a stellar 20-8 season, head coach Sandy Sanchez-Lombeyda, the winningest coach in Montclair State's volleyball history, enters her fourth season at MSU with an overall record of 50-32. Sanchez-Lombeyda, who became a new mom right before the season began, is looking to her assistant coach, Henry Martinez, to continue the team's success.

BENNIE BENSON, Cross Country
Head coach for the cross country and track and field teams, Bennie Benson is beginning his third year at Montclair State and already has coached five athletes in NCAA meets in his tenure. Benson also has been the catalyst for Montclair State to host such prestigious track events as the Collegiate Track and the NJAC championships on the newly renovated Dioguardi Track.

Joel Schwartz
Professor, History Department

"It's a thrill to receive this stipend because it's encouraging as a researcher to know the work I'm doing is recognized by my colleagues and the National Endowment."

Last week's Q&A featured Elizabeth Valdez del Alamo of Fine Arts, one of two MSU faculty awarded a summer stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Joel Schwartz of History received the other $4,000 stipend to continue work on his book, The City War: Reconstruction of American Urban Life, 1850-1877. The book traces the transformation of American cities from disorderly places before the Civil War into regulated and managed metropolises by the late 1870s.

"Although this is my project," said Schwartz, "I've been helped along and encouraged by my colleagues, Susan Nanney [of Research and Sponsored Programs] and Gregory Waters [deputy provost and acting vice president for Institutional Advancement], and I could literally not have received this stipend without them."

In addition to his teaching responsibilities and research, Schwartz is preparing to lead several workshops for a group of high school teachers, primarily from West Orange High School, on the subject of American cities and suburbs.

"I've been doing work with the New Jersey Committee on the Humanities," he said, "and have been asked to talk at some of their teachers' institutes in the past. They've invited me back and I'm looking forward to leading these workshops because they also teach me something."

Schwartz and Valdez del Alamo are the first researchers at Montclair to receive a summer stipend from the NEH in more than a decade.

INSIGHT: How did you use your stipend?
Schwartz : I visited the National Archives and the Library of Congress in Washington to investigate how cities, working with the Federal Government, developed railroad stations and post offices as centers of their civic life. The stipend has gone a long way to make the possibility of completing my book a likelihood. I hope to complete the book within a year and a half, and the material I gathered will put me in a position where I can finish it.

INSIGHT: What does this NEH stipend mean to you?
Schwartz: It's a thrill to receive this stipend because it's encouraging as a researcher to know the work I'm doing is recognized by my colleagues and the National Endowment. Because somebody out there other than me knows I'm on the right track strengthens my own sense that where I'm headed is in the right direction.

INSIGHT: How was city life in America reconstructed?
Schwartz: Cities in this country were disorderly. White males proclaimed the right to occupy the streets, just as they proclaimed the right to vote. The consequence was riots among ethnic groups, and riots against racial groups and against economic activities. Cities developed a viewpoint that certain activities no longer were permitted, while other activities would have a central space. Enter the railroads and post offices. The development of central post offices in the 1860s gave birth to a municipal reconstruction. Post offices became a central office for federal authority. They housed a U.S. courthouse, a place for the U.S. Marshal and the Internal Revenue Service. I've found that this is the last act where the government literally laid down the law. My book looks at a process over several decades where government authority, using military force, forged an iron structure and pacified cities.

INSIGHT: What are some cities you've included in your research?
Schwartz: New York, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Washington. Cities such as New York and Philadelphia can't be ignored because they loom too large in American life in the mid-19th century. Other cities like Cincinnati and St. Louis are essentially border towns that during the Civil War became almost like occupied camps. Washington was the first of these camps occupied by the Union army under President Abraham Lincoln's authority.

INSIGHT: What are your expectations?
Schwartz: Any large project such as this one takes on a life of its own. After a while it becomes like parenting and you want to push it along. I get a great degree of satisfaction when I look back at something I've written and say, "Did I actually say that? That's not bad." A large writing project is like something that gets under your skin, and you need to scratch it until you get some kind of satisfaction from it. This project has been at the back of my mind for a long time. I always vowed to come back to it, and now I hope to see it through.
