Fast Start
At press time, Carnegie Mellon was off to a 3-1 start to the 2003 football season. Through the first four games, senior Ricardo Clarke, an All-University Athletic Association (UAA) pick last year, is leading the ground attack with 311 yards and one touchdown. Carnegie Mellon's next home game is at noon, Oct. 18, at Gesling Stadium against UAA foe Case Western Reserve University.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security, CERT Form Partnership
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced a partnership with the university's CERTŪ Coordination Center (CERT/CC) to create US-CERT, a coordination point for prevention, protection and response to cyber attacks across the Internet.

US-CERT will begin as a partnership between the DHS National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) and CERT/CC, and will grow to include other partnerships with private-sector security vendors and domestic and international organizations. These groups will work together to coordinate national and international efforts to prevent cyber attacks, protect systems and respond to the effects of cyber attacks across the Internet. More...

Five Honored with Andy Awards
The Andy Awards, the university-wide staff recognition program named for Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon, honors staff for their contributions above and beyond normal job requirements. Creig Doyle, Chang-Hsin Chang, Jim Gindlesperger, Guy Winn and Randy Vandermolen were this year's winners.

Doyle, director of campus security, took home the first-ever Andy Award for culture, recognizing his efforts to foster a welcoming and nurturing workplace environment. Chang, a research programmer in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, won the award for dedication. The award for citizenship was given to Gindlesperger, the university's loss prevention manager, and Guy Winn, a senior accountant in accounting services, was cited for innovation. Randy Vandermolen, a member of the technical staff at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), won the award for enthusiasm.

The Andy Awards were presented in a Sept. 29 ceremony in McConomy Auditorium, University Center. Each winner received $750.

Creig Doyle—Culture

"As a 28-year veteran of the Carnegie Mellon University Police Department," wrote Sergeant Richard Sima in his nomination letter, "I have had the opportunity to serve under many university police chiefs. During these years, I have experienced leadership styles and personalities as diverse as the university community....

"From the very first meeting with our current chief, Creig Doyle, I sensed a man who possessed the skills needed to develop a unified and constructive organization; someone who would provide leadership through example and establish a pleasant working environment.

"My instincts were reliable and I am proud to nominate Chief Creig W. Doyle for the Andy Award in the category of Culture.... Through his commitment, enthusiasm and support, Chief Doyle has fostered a balanced and inclusive workplace culture."

In her nomination letter, Michelle Lockard, administrative assistant in the University Police Department said, "I have been with the Police Department for two years, with the university going on six years, and I have worked in the corporate world for 18 years. In all of those years, I must say that Creig Doyle is one of the best supervisors I have ever had. I have never seen such determination in making a department a successful one using teamwork, compassion (and) quality service.

"....He has no hidden agenda; everything he does, he does for the department. He allows employees to do their jobs and rewards them when they do it well. He gives credit where credit is due. His on-going support allows others to excel in their jobs."

Lieutenant Kevin W. Graham, assistant director for security, praised Doyle for developing "an ethical and balanced workplace culture. Diversity is welcomed in the racially mixed department where every member is made to feel like they want to exceed."

At the department's December 2002 Christmas party, Graham wrote, "every member of the department signed a plaque recognizing Chief Doyle for his accomplishments." More...
