MOTION PASSED AS AMENDED (Unanimous Approval)
==========================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section 1. (ART III: 
Membership) of the Bylaws relating to attendance and vacancies as 
follows:

((   ))  =  deletion
CAPS  =  addition


Sect. 1  (ART III: Membership)

	D. 	VACANCIES

		1.	IN THE CASE OF DEATH, RESIGNATION, OR TRANSFER 
			OF AN ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SENATE, 
			AN ALTERNATE SHALL IMMEDIATELY BECOME THE 
			REPRESENTATIVE. THE ALTERNATE SELECTED TO 
			FILL THE VACANCY SHALL BE THE HIGHEST VOTE?
			GETTER FROM THE CONSTITUENCY ELECTION FOR 
			ALTERNATES AS SPECIFIED IN THE BYLAWS.  IF NO 
			ALTERNATE IS AVAILABLE, THEN THE PRESIDENT OF 
			THE SENATE WILL APPOINT AN ALTERNATE WITH 
			THE CONCURRENCE OF THE AFFECTED CONSTITUENCY, 
			AND THE CONSENT OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE 
			COMMITTEE.

	E. 	1.	WHEN ELECTED MEMBERS ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND 
			THE MEETINGS, THEIR ALTERNATES WILL SERVE.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE: 	This provides a procedure for filling 
		vacancies which should have been included previously in 
		the bylaws.  Also, allowing alternates to serve in place 
		of members at meetings provides representation for the 
		school/college when members are unable to attend.

		are career specific in nature and course work completed 
		can apply to appropriate degree programs.

Motion to amend current merit award program, submitted by Ralph 
Gabrielli.


MOTION (failed with 12 ayes, 14 nays)
=======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the current financial award 
program as follows:

((   ))  =  deletion
CAPS  =  addition

A financial award program recognizing faculty for meritorious 
performance OR IN SUPPORT OF PROPOSED PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES 
OF MERIT shall be instituted based on the following principles:

a)	A fixed number of awards shall be given within each College or 
	School based on the total number of full time faculty members 
	(or equivalent).

b)	Awards shall be ((made in the form of a bonus check)) of 
	substantial amount (say $1000 or $2000) annually (not a 
	continuing percentage increase).

c) 	The method of nomination of award recipients, criteria for 
	awards, and the selection of recipients within each College or 
	School shall be determined by a committee of four faculty 
	members nominated and elected by the faculty within that 
	College or School, and one student from that College or School 
	appointed by ASUA.  Awards shall be made by the cognizant 
	dean from a pool of funds provided to the school or college by 
	the Office of the Chancellor.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Upon Chancellor's Approval

	RATIONALE: 	This amendment would permit the faculty of 
		a school or college to go ahead with an award program in 
		precisely the manner originally set forth, it would also 
		give the faculty in each school and college the option of 
		using the funds to underwrite or help underwrite small 
		proposed projects.  In the latter case, incentive is 
		encouraged and the criteria could be designed to 
		encourage collaboration.  The proposed amendment 
		simply authorizes, rather than mandates, such an option.

		The words "made in the form of a bonus check" assume a 
		program of awards to individuals and are not compatible 
		with the proposed option; however, the deletion of those 
		words does not prevent bonus checks from being 
		awarded, if a particular faculty chooses that route.  If 
		the motion is silent on that matter, it would be 
		internally consistent with whichever option a faculty 
		might choose.

		If the amendment is approved, the three principles set 
		forth in the motion would apply to either option chosen 
		by a faculty.

===========

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to adopt the following resolution:

WHEREAS, Selected faculty at each of the major academic units

	previously had been under a systemwide salary scale; and

WHEREAS, The University of Alaska Southeast faculty received only

	compensation policy; and

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Faculty Senate goes on record

	of Alaska Southeast by requesting that the Board of Regents 
	approve and implement the Statewide Assembly motion of 
	August 2, 1988, relating to UAS faculty salaries by securing 
	$93,124 from FY89 general funds to bring the University of 
	Alaska Southeast faculty salaries equal to the Oklahoma State 
	University salary survey adjusted for Alaska which was the 
	basis for faculty salary adjustments at the other two 
	academic major administrative units.
