RESOLUTION OF APPRECIATION FOR CAROLYN SAMPSON

WHEREAS, Carolyn Sampson has provided the faculty at the 
	University of Alaska Fairbanks with loyal and unending support 
	and service during the critical years in which the university 
	and faculty governance were in a state of change; and

WHEREAS, Without this support the faculty would not have been able 
	to organize itself or its tasks so that the critical academic 
	policy work at the university could occur; and

WHEREAS, Carolyn Sampson provided the Academic Council, the 
	Fairbanks Assembly, and the Faculty Senate with the quality 
	of support that is seldom found; and

WHEREAS, Even during times of personal adversity Carolyn Sampson 
	continued to provide the faculty with guidance and support 
	because of her strong feeling of loyalty and commitment to 
	the faculty of the University of Alaska Fairbanks; and

WHEREAS, Carolyn Sampson has provided a sense of continuity which 
	has enabled five separate faculty governance chairpersons and 
	presidents to carry forward important academic agendas from 
	term to term; and

WHEREAS, Those five chairpersons and presidents; namely, Mike 
	Gaffney, John Whitehead, John Leipzig, Ron Gatterdam, and 
	David Smith, would like to join with their fellow faculty in 
	recognizing Carolyn Sampson's contributions to the faculty and 
	to the governance process provided from 1985 to 1989; now

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Faculty Senate at the 
	University of Alaska Fairbanks goes on record as recognizing 
	the exemplary and loyal service provided to it and its 
	predecessor organizations; and

THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the Faculty Senate 
	expresses its deepest appreciation for the time we had with 
	Carolyn Sampson and wishes to extend to her family our 
	heartfelt sympathy for the loss we all feel.

The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #12 on 
September 22, 1989:


MOTION PASSED AS AMENDED (unanimous approval)
========================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section IV.B.3.c. of the UAF 
Regulations for the Evaluation of Faculty as follows:

((	  ))	  =	deletion
CAPS		  =	addition


IV.	 B.	  3.	c.	  Levels of Review.  The faculty member shall 
			submit the completed application file to 
			department head.  The department head, ((in)) 
			AFTER consultation with faculty  ((in the unit)), 
			STUDENTS, AND OTHER INDIVIDUALS WHO CAN MAKE 
			LEGITIMATE INPUT INTO THE EVALUATION PROCESS, 
			will evaluate the file and prepare a written 
			recommendation for or against promotion and/or 
			tenure.  The recommendation, along with the 
			candidate's response, if any, shall be forwarded 
			with the file to the unit peer review committee.

[The remaining portion of Section IV.B.3.c. remains unchanged.]


	EFFECTIVE: 	Upon Chancellor's Approval

	RATIONALE:	The intent of the original regulation was to 
		encourage the department head to consult widely and was 
		not meant to limit her/his consultation to the unit.  The 
		unit will be making its own substantive recommendation 
		after the department head.

RESOLUTION PASSED AS AMENDED (unanimous approval)
============================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to adopt the following resolution 
relating to the Regents' action on a new residence for the president 
of the University of Alaska:


WHEREAS, The quality of education and the academic environment 
	at the University of Alaska are severely limited by the 
	availability of resources; and

WHEREAS, Funding for instructional equipment and supplies, building 
	maintenance, library acquisitions, and facilities for research 
	and scholarly activities are inadequate to support our needs 
	and aspirations; and

WHEREAS, This environment of limited resources requires careful 
	consideration of priorities for new funding requests; and

WHEREAS, The proposal to invest limited resources in construction 
	of a new residence for the president of the University of 
	Alaska has never been subjected to open discussion and 
	evaluation of its merit and priority vis a vis other academic 
	needs; now

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the Faculty Senate of the 
	University of Alaska Fairbanks opposes the proposal from the 
	president of the University of Alaska to build a new residence 
	for the next university president.  We urgently request that the 
	Board of Regents of the University refrain from action in 
	support of the proposal until it has been considered in an 
	appropriate public forum within the University, and endorsed 
	by the University community as a project deserving of priority 
	relative to other academic needs of the University.

The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #12 on 
September 22, 1989:


MOTION (unanimous approval)
======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve the Faculty Affairs 
Committee recommendation that a student not be placed on the 
University-wide Promotion and Tenure Committee.


	RATIONALE:	A great deal of credibility and weight is 
		placed on the students' evaluation of faculty in the 
		promotion and tenure process.  It is not an exaggeration 
		to say that these evaluations are one of the central 
		teaching benchmarks used in the evaluation process at 
		the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  With this level of 
		input from the students, given such weight, it is felt 
		that the student concerns and evaluations are adequately 
		addressed in the existing promotion and tenure process.
	   
		In addition, since promotion and tenure are conferred by 
		the faculty, honors bestowed by faculty upon other 
		faculty deemed worthy, consideration of the students' 
		evaluation is sufficient to give the student an adequate 
		voice in the process.

		Thirdly, promotion and tenure is evaluated as a peer 
		process.  Therefore, it would be inconsistent and 
		inappropriate to put the student, who is not a peer of
		the faculty member, in the peer role of evaluating the 
		faculty member for promotion and tenure.
