Handling the challenge
It’s Eric Johnson’s inaugural season as women’s head basketball coach, but he already has his DU squad reaching high for results. As 2008 was ending, the scrappy Pioneers had tallied five impressive wins and were showing the teamwork and tenacity necessary for Sun Belt Conference play, which begins in earnest in January. Denver’s attack is a blend of fluid offense and aggressive defense. It relies on powerful contributions from veterans Ashly Robinson and Nnenna Akotaobi and unrelenting bench support from freshmen Kaetlyn Murdoch and Jenny Vaughan. The first home game of 2009 is Jan. 7 against Arkansas State. For information, go to www.denverpioneers.com.

‘Pete’s List’ helps departments swap surplus equipment
Craig, meet Pete. Pete, meet Craig. As the University of Denver Sustainability Council looks for ways DU can cut its carbon footprint and lessen the impact on the environment, sometimes a little idea is a big deal. That’s where “Pete’s List” comes in. On Dec. 4 the council launched an online place for faculty, staff and departments to share old chairs, electronics and unneeded office supplies. The online site, dubbed “Pete’s List” in honor of DU’s old mascot, Pioneer Pete, is sort of an on-campus Craig’s List. Got an extra desk you don’t need, fill out the form and upload a photo. Need an extra desk, go online and browse. And it’s all free. Council member Pete Goff says it was coworker Doug Rippey at Penrose Library who came up with the idea and asked him to bring it to the council. “Hopefully, it will save the University some money, keep us from buying things that are right here on campus,” Goff says. Karl French, who works at the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and is a member of the Sustainability Council, is administering the list. The form for adding items to the list is designed to be easy to use, and it offers a simple way for “sellers” to upload photos. French does the rest. And when items have been snapped up, the listing comes down. “It’s going to work a lot like Craig’s List. We’re hoping we’re not sending things to landfills or having the University spending money on things that we already have,” French says.

DU research reveals bad news, good news scenario for economy
© Alexandr Tovstenko, iStockphoto.com
First, the bad news: Colorado appears to have joined the rest of the country by officially slipping into a recession, according to Tom Dunn, the author of new research on Colorado’s economy from the University of Denver’s Center for Colorado’s Economic Future (CCEF). “I believe Colorado is in recession based on the recent loss of jobs and weak consumer spending,” says Dunn, senior economist at CCEF who’s been watching Colorado’s economic cycles and related economic data for 35 years. “Although these declines are only a few months old, the nationwide trend and poor outlook will extend to Colorado and prolong state losses.” Dunn says there’s no technical benchmark to determine recessions for states, but adds that employment and state sales tax collections are typically good indicators of the economy’s health. Relief isn’t likely until the second half of 2009 and possibly into the first quarter of 2010, Dunn predicts. The good news is, after the economic storm has passed, Dunn believes Colorado is poised well for the long-term. Why? Two words: alternative energy. “Much of Conoco’s [ConocoPhillips, the energy giant] plans revolve around the alternative energy sector … [and] Vestas [a wind power company] has built or announced plans for three manufacturing plants in Colorado,” he says. CCEF Director Charlie Brown says that the center, which is an independent, nonpartisan organization that conducts research on matters related to Colorado’s fiscal health, will be exploring the effects of the recession on Colorado’s local governments and the implications and challenges for policymakers. The CCEF report analyzes the significance of Colorado’s job losses, rise in unemployment and declining sales tax revenues. >> www.du.edu/economicfuture/

One of America’s fittest men offers tips on staying fit
Tim Hola competes internationally in Iron Man competitions for Team Timex (his best race was in 2006 when he finished 43rd overall and fifth among Americans), and he was recently named one of the “Fittest (Real) Men in America” by Outside magazine. Now Hola, who has been teaching a 6 a.m. spin class every Friday at the University of Denver for five years, has some tips on how to stay fit: • Set a routine. “The first thing is to get a routine down,” he says. He suggests writing down a weekly fitness plan and posting it on the fridge. • Get a workout partner. Setting up a schedule with somebody else means each holds the other accountable. Plus, it makes exercise more fun. Scheduling workouts in the morning makes it less tempting to skip it in the afternoon when other things come up. • Prepare. Lay out workout clothes the night before. Seeing them upon waking is a reminder to work out. • Manage party intake. “Food at parties is always tempting, and I’m definitely not excluded from that,” admits Hola. He suggests eating before parties so that fatty food isn’t as enticing. • Eat apples. Hola says that apples are excellent for staving off hunger because they contain lots of water and fiber. • Shop smart. Keep unhealthy food out of the house as much as possible to avoid temptation. • Out of sight … Keep exercise equipment in plain view. For example, keep a fitness ball or hand weights in the family room where they’re more likely to be used while watching TV. • Set a goal. Sign up for a 5K race and start training. • Develop superhuman willpower. Hola gives up desserts entirely for the month of December, which may be the reason he is a world-class Iron Man athlete and the other 99 percent of the population isn’t.

DU research shows in-law relationships impact marital happiness
Some people think the best way to approach their in-laws is to avoid them. But six years of research at the University of Denver suggests that is a bad idea. Mary Claire Morr Serewicz, associate professor in Human Communication Studies, has studied the relationship between newlyweds and their in-laws extensively. The quality of their satisfaction with their in-laws is directly connected to their marital satisfaction, Morr Serewicz says. Morr Serewicz says the most important thing couples can do is realize the seriousness of these relationships. In her most recent research, she proposes a triangular theory to point out the priority in-laws have in making marriage satisfying. The theory basically states that a couple isn’t alone in a marriage — the in-laws are part of the relationship, too. It’s with that knowledge that she passes on this advice. First, the most positive impact a parent-in-law can have on their child’s marriage is to express their acceptance of the new child-in-law. Conversely, the most negative thing parents-in-law can do is slander or gossip about other family members. Finally, Morr Serewicz says the decision to end a relationship with an in-law should only be done in the most serious situations. While there are times it is appropriate, it should be considered carefully because it will strain the marriage.
Adolescent depression topic of study for psychology professor
If Benjamin Hankin can figure out why depression comes on and dramatically increases during adolescence, he hopes he can spare many people and their families from its debilitating effects. “Depression is a significant public health concern,” says Hankin, associate professor of psychology at DU. “It affects all areas of your life: school, family, friends, work and happiness.” Hankin has been studying depression for almost 15 years and has made significant findings. From the research he and his colleagues have completed, they’ve found that depression increases sixfold during adolescence in the high school years — when twice as many girls as boys become depressed. He is now hoping to find out why through two new research projects. Hankin is working with John Abela, professor of psychology at Rutgers, on the studies. One study the two have worked on looked at 375 children and their parents for seven years beginning when the children were ages 11–14. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and Canadian Institute for Health Research funded the study. The ongoing research looks for psychosocial predictors of depression. They’ve already found that pessimistic youth who experience more stress are the most likely to be depressed. They’ll follow the youths until ages 18–21, when they hope to have comprehensive data. The other study, the GeneEnvironment Mood, will follow 750 children and their families as the children progress through third, sixth and ninth grades. The five-year study, also funded by NIMH, aims to understand how genes, psychosocial factors and stress predict depression. “These children will go through similar assessments of personality, relationship, thinking styles, stress and diagnostic interviews,” Hankin says. “But we will also get saliva samples to obtain DNA for testing genetic risk.”
Professor urges chasing ‘authentic life’
There was a moment, fresh out of law school, when Corey Ciocchetti (BA ’98, MA ’99) thought, “Is this the rest of my life?” He had just started a new job at a prestigious law firm in downtown Denver when one of the firm’s attorneys barged into his office, slammed the door so hard that pictures fell off his wall, and yelled, “Are you an idiot?” “That culture was bad,” recalls Ciocchetti. “I started wondering what I was doing with my life. I had all the money in the world, had a great job, everything I thought I had ever wanted, and I was totally miserable.” Ten months later, Ciocchetti spontaneously quit without any idea of what was next, but he believes his path took him right to where he was meant to be: teaching and speaking about happiness, ethics and character. Ciocchetti is now an assistant professor in DU’s department of business ethics and legal studies in the Daniels College of Business. He has also written and self-published a book, Real Rabbits: Chasing an Authentic Life. “What do we chase in life?” he asks. “Money, fame. I’m competing with MTV, songs telling you that if you get rich and stay skinny, you’ll be happy. But if you chase those things, there’s never enough of what you don’t need.” Ciocchetti also speaks around the country sharing the three things he challenges people to achieve: • Contentment in your heart: When you wake up in the morning, are you happy with who you are? • Good relationships: “To have good friends, you must be a good friend.” • Character: How you act when nobody’s looking. Sophomore finance major Caitlin Blasi has taken a class from Ciocchetti and read his book. “Real Rabbits taught me to weigh what is important in my life,” she says. “I essentially learned ways to improve and build upon my character.” Ciocchetti seems somewhat surprised and entirely thrilled with where life has taken him. “I have found my dream job,” he says. “I’m passionate about this. Helping people, changing lives. Every day I get to think and be smarter. I actually work harder now than ever, but it’s not work.”

National report ranks DU second for undergraduate study abroad
© Amanda Rohde, iStockphoto.com
The University of Denver ranks second in the nation among doctoral and research institutions in the percentage of undergraduate students participating in study-abroad programs, according to the 2008 Open Doors report by the Institute of International Education. The report, which reflects data from the 2006–07 academic year, shows that DU sent 74.4 percent of its undergraduates abroad, just behind Yeshiva University, which sends 75.7 percent of its undergraduates abroad. Nationally, just over 1 percent of all enrolled undergraduates studied abroad. DU offers more than 150 study-abroad programs in 56 nations. Its Cherrington Global Scholars program gives all eligible juniors and seniors the opportunity to spend one academic quarter studying abroad at no additional cost beyond their normal tuition. The University will spend $10 million this year on study abroad. In addition to student tuition, housing and some meals, this expense includes nearly $1 million for transportation, visa application fees and insurance mandated by host countries or universities.
City award honors student gathering spot for enticing design
niversity of Denver students who meet and study at the Pajama Baking Co. on Old South Pearl Street may go there because the coffee’s good, the bread’s fresh and the homemade ice cream is sinful. But to the city of Denver, the beckoning hand is the building itself, with a design that’s distinctive, welcoming and informal. In fact, the city finds the design so compelling to passersby and pedestrian life that earlier this month it named Pajama Baking winner of a Mayor’s Design Award in the category Buildings That Beckon. “The building engages the street, allowing casual exchange of smiles and conversation between passersby and customers enjoying a cup of Joe,” the city writes on its Web site. The architecture reminds patrons “to slow down and enjoy the community.” Double garage doors that open onto Pearl Street are one way the building is “inviting,” says co-owner Russ Tearney during a recent busy morning making lunches for kids at DU’s Ricks Center. This day it’s a spinach tortilla wrap with lettuce, cucumber, tomato and carrot, a fresh baked cookie and grapes. Tearney puts together 90 box lunches a week for the kids in addition to the catering he does for DU faculty and student groups. “They come in here and say the place feels right, comfortable and warm,” says the basketball player-turned-culinary-maestro, who says he played against DU back in the 1980s when he was a guard for the University of Colorado. These days he’s baking bread — a specialty — for the company, dreaming up unusual sandwiches and promoting the catering side. He knows the challenges of the food service business, having been chief operating officer for the 72-store Nick n’ Willie’s pizza chain before the company sold out in 2006. He’s proud of the food, he says, but also proud of the Mayor’s award, which recognizes the neighborhood market and coffee shop concept that he and his four partners — Jeff and Kerry Hutcheson and Lauryn and Seth Meyer — intended for the 2,000 square-foot space when they opened in May on the corner of Iowa Avenue and South Pearl. The name of the business, Kerry Hutcheson explains, relates to an unusual Evergreen wholesale baker whose practice was to wear pajamas when he delivered his baked goods. The owners liked the businessman’s spirit, so they named the business Pajama Baking. A sign on the door welcomes people who show up in pajamas, but so far, the only patrons who do so are kids, she adds. But that might change. Tearney says that owners and patrons had so much fun wearing costumes on Halloween that Pajama Baking is considering “pajama Fridays” for adults. No rules have yet been determined.

Heart condition freezes hockey career but gives player a mission
David Carle is glad this story isn’t an obituary — more specifically, his obituary. It easily could have been. Carle, a freshman at the University of Denver, was a top recruit and scholarship recipient to play hockey for the Pioneers this fall. But this summer doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., shared some bad news with Carle: He has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy — a thickening of the heart that can kill athletes suddenly. That leaves Carle off the ice but on a clear mission: to spread the word about these disorders. “I think the main thing I can do now is to get the word out that athletes need to get tested,” Carle says. “A good start is to get an EKG [electrocardiogram]. That will usually show any problems. And if you have any family history, you must get tested.” His newly adopted duty is a way of coping with what has been a devastating blow at the start of a blossoming hockey career. The last name may sound familiar to hockey fans. Carle’s brother is Matt Carle, a former Pioneer standout and two-time All-American who plays with the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning. Matt is DU’s first and only Hobey Baker Award winner. Some say David was following his brother’s tracks and was a lock for a pro career. “He was on the road to being a very good player,” says DU head hockey coach George Gwozdecky. Carle says what he misses most now is proving his value on the ice. “I really wanted to prove people wrong. A lot of people doubted me. I did get better and I always believed in myself.” When Carle and his father broke the news to George Gwozdecky about the diagnosis, Gwozdecky called Athletics Vice Chancellor Peg Bradley-Doppes, who was out of town. They quickly agreed to honor Carle’s scholarship and make him part of DU’s hockey program. David Carle says that decision was “an act of human kindness that needs to be known.” Today Carle serves as a student assistant coach with the team and handles video and writing about hockey for DenverPioneers.com and ESPN.com. When asked what he’s learned from the experience, he says, “It’s put things perspective. I really haven’t lived a hard life, so it makes me realize what’s important: to enjoy the little things day to day.”

Romanoff takes off
DU alumnus and outgoing Colorado Speaker of the House considers political options
nyone who has dreamed of pursuing higher education but thinks they’re too busy should take a look at the outgoing Colorado Speaker of the House. Romanoff received his law degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in December and complete a journey he began six years ago. While sweating over the books, memorizing cases and learning the language of law, Romanoff represented one of Colorado’s most urban districts in the State House and rose to Speaker of the House. He helped enact Referendum C, a law that allows the state to spend surplus tax revenue on such things as education and transportation. He traveled abroad to promote Colorado’s business environment and was even rumored to be a potential candidate for governor in 2006. He also held a job as a college instructor. So why take on law school as well? “There was nothing good on TV,” Romanoff jokes before turning serious. “I think I was still intellectually hungry after graduate school. And I thought a law degree would be useful to me in my job as a legislator. I guess I didn’t time it well because I’m term-limited out as I get my degree.” Romanoff’s term representing District 6 expired at the end of 2008. But looking ahead, he’s one of three finalists for the Secretary of State position vacated by Mike Coffman, who was elected to Congress in November. Gov. Bill Ritter says he’ll announce Coffman’s replacement in January. Romanoff, 42, already holds a bachelor’s degree in American studies from Yale and a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, but says he wanted to know more about how the laws he was helping create would be interpreted in the courts. He started out with a full load of night courses in 2002 but eventually cut back his course schedule and even took the last two Andrew Romanoff, former Colorado House Speaker, visited a DU class for freshmen that introduced spring semesters off during the legislative science students to politics in November. Romanoff received his law degree from DU in December. session. “It was really good training for the brain,” he says. “It was a good experience.” While he didn’t seek specialization, Romanoff says he enjoyed courses in international law, citing his work with Professor Ved Nanda among his most memorable. Romanoff says he also fondly recalls courses with Adjunct Professor Karen Steinhauser and Professor Arthur Best. And in every class, he says, he enjoyed discussions about how lawyers and judges interpret laws and how courts try to determine the lawmakers’ intent. “In the first class I took, a professor told the students ‘You’ve got to pay close attention to the words of the statute because the legislature obviously took care in choosing those words,” and I was thinking ‘No we didn’t,’” Romanoff says. “I started thinking a lot about the record we’re developing, the floor debates, intent.” He says he’s also glad he took a course in election law, considering he’s in the running to head the office that oversees Colorado elections. Romanoff is also among those being discussed to replace Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar, who was tapped by President-elect Barack Obama to lead the Interior Department. To anyone who considering law school but thinks they can’t possibly squeeze it into a busy professional schedule, Romanoff has one thing to say: “Yes, you can.” “Obviously, I took longer than most people to finish. I did my reading on weekends, I took a lighter load,” he says. But now, looking back, Romanoff says he’s pleased he stuck with it and is happy to be moving forward with a degree in law. And as he puts down the books, at least for a little while, Romanoff says he’s overcome by one defining emotion: “Relief. A great sense of relief.”
Teaching is both theoretical, practical for Meyer
In academia, a line is often drawn between those who are practitioners of a craft and those who study the craft. Michelle Meyer does both. The adjunct professor in the Daniels College of Business marketing department was presented the Ruth Murray Underhill Teaching Award at the University’s 2008 Convocation ceremony. The award is given annually in recognition of excellence in teaching by an adjunct faculty member. Meyer, currently the director of the Industrial Products Industry Group for Hitachi Consulting, has taught a logistics management class in Daniels’ supply chain program since 2003. She came to teach at Daniels on the invitation of Carol Johnson, associate professor and chair of the marketing department. The two met through the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals. “I asked Michelle to first participate by giving a guest lecture in my logistics class, and the students loved her presentation,” Johnson says. After her guest lecturing became regular, Johnson asked Meyer to take on a class. Meyer’s class, an introduction to supply chain management, covers inventory management, warehouse management, procurement, supply chain information systems and demand management. The class is open to both undergraduate and graduate students and often contains a mix of students who are new to the topic and those who are seasoned pros.
Hand washing study offers new weapon against bugs
Getting undergraduates to do what’s good for them may be more about what they think is disgusting than what they think is smart, DU research indicates. Moreover, if the message offers an easy way to avoid what’s disgusting, many students will change their ways. The 2007 study that led to these conclusions focused on getting students to wash their hands more often, particularly after using the bathroom. Fear of spreading germs or getting sick by not washing didn’t mean much to students, focus group research suggested. What got their attention was the knowledge that they might be walking around with “gross things” on their hands if they didn’t wash. The findings are generating interest. Universities including UC Santa Barbara, Wyoming, Colorado State and CU–Colorado Springs are seeking to borrow DU’s techniques in hopes of improving student hand washing behavior on their campuses. In fall quarter 2007, researchers posted messages in the bathrooms of two DU undergraduate residence halls. The messages said things like “Poo on you, wash your hands” or “You just peed, wash your hands” and contained vivid graphics and photos. The messages resulted in increased hand washing among females by 26 percentage points and among males by 8 percentage points. Observations in two control dorms over the same four-week period showed hand washing dipped 2 percentage points among females and 21.5 percentage points among males. The study’s lead author, Renee Botta, associate professor in the Department of Mass Communications and Journalism Studies, theorizes that the severe drop in hand washing among males might have been that the habit they brought to campus fell away the longer they were away from home and the more they were pressed by studies. Then, too, males may require a secondary message beyond the “gross ones” that motivated women. —Richard Chapman
“The grad students keep you on your toes,” says Meyer, noting that many of the graduate students are her peers, currently working in the industry. “These folks are really sharp; they bring lots of perspective and can share real-world theory with the undergrads.” Rather than requiring a class project, undergraduate students in Meyer’s class can participate in national logistics case competition. “Each quarter I have three or four students who had no idea what transportation management is. One time an art major ended up in my class by default, but they always have a good time.” “My goal is to get at least one or two converts [to the logistics industry] from each class,” she jokes.
