The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #14 on 
November 10, 1989:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to adopt the following resolution 
relating to the role of the unit peer review committees:


WHEREAS, The UAF Faculty Senate has endorsed review by one's 
	tenured peers as the central process whereby candidates are 
	evaluated for promotion and tenure and have codified this role 
	in the new promotion and tenure regulations; and  

WHEREAS, Under the new procedures, the unit peer committees are 
	no longer charged with simply making recommendations to the 
	deans but are vested with the major responsibility for tenure 
	and promotion decisions, and   

WHEREAS, Unless all parties to the reviews conscientiously and 
	professionally accept their part in the process, the faculty 
	responsible for carrying out the educational mission of the 
	University will have abdicated their role in the decision-
	making to the ultimate loss of program quality and morale, 
	now  

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the UAF Faculty Senate reaffirm 
	the above stated principles and request the President of the 
	Faculty Senate and the Chancellor to take immediate steps to 
	apprise the UAF faculty and administration of them, urging full 
	and conscientious efforts to make the new procedures work.



Signed:  David M. Smith, President  		Date:  12/1/89

The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #14 on 
November 10, 1989:


MOTION PASSED (unanimous approval)
===============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to recommend the following 
amendments to the proposed Compensation Policy:

50% of the self-funded compensation increases will be annually 
devoted to protection of real income, and the other half of this 
increases will go to an open architecture policy reflecting the 
priorities of the 1989 UAF faculty vote on compensation, or as 
revised to reflect future faculty priorities.

The 1989 UAF faculty compensation priorities are:

PROTECTION OF REAL INCOME:  ASSURING THAT COMPENSATION 
STRUCTURES WILL BE ADJUSTED FOR INFLATION.

COMPETITIVENESS:  ASSURING THAT THE UNIVERSITY CAN 
SUCCESSFULLY COMPETE FOR, AND RETAIN, QUALIFIED FACULTY AND 
STAFF.

EQUITY:  ASSURING THAT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMPENSATION 
AND JOB  CLASSIFICATION IS FAIR AND JUST.

SATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE:  ASSURING THAT EMPLOYEES' 
COMPENSATION WILL BE ANNUALLY ADJUSTED WITHIN THE SALARY 
STRUCTURE FOR CONTINUED SATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE.

EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE:  ASSURING THAT MONETARY AWARDS 
ARE MADE TO RECOGNIZE THOSE EMPLOYEES WHO MAKE OUTSTANDING 
CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE UNIVERSITY.

The allocation of compensation among the second 50% of the self-
funded compensation increases shall be negotiated by the UAF 
Faculty Senate and the University administration.

	RATIONALE:	This motion reflects the will of the faculty 
		based on the results of the referendum on the proposed 
		Compensation Policy.

The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #14 on 
November 10, 1989:


MOTION PASSED (unanimous approval)
===============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section 3 (ARTICLE V:  
Committees) of the Bylaws as follows:

((	))	=	deletion
CAPS 	=	addition

Sect. 3	(ART V:  Committees) E. Permanent Committees

2.	The Service Committee will be 7 members who represent the 
	academic community and the general public, with not less than 
	two members being non-university employees.  The chair must 
	be a ((Senate)) UAF FACULTY member.  Members' terms will be 
	staggered to provide continuity.  This committee will deal 
	with policies relating to the service mission of the university 
	and its faculty.

	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	The requirement that the chair be a member 
		of the Senate was determined at a time when committee 
		membership was predominantly from the Senate; 
		however, current, and possibly future, representation 
		make meeting this requirement impractical.  By requiring 
		that the chair be UAF faculty, this prevents the 
		possibility of a non-university employee serving on other 
		related faculty committees, such as the Senate 
		Administrative Committee.

===================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to adopt the following resolution 
relating to use of the Railbelt Energy Fund for construction of 
instructional buildings:


WHEREAS, The campuses of the University of Alaska have a shortage 
	of space particularly in specialized laboratory facilities, 
	office space and large lecture facilities; and 

WHEREAS, The University, in order to attract and retain quality 
	students and faculty, needs to provide up-to-date structures 
	and facilities; and

WHEREAS, The University and its continued development is of utmost 
	importance to the State of Alaska because of the University 
	campuses' economic impact on the communities throughout the 
	State; and  

WHEREAS, The students of the University of Alaska support the 
	construction of these facilities, and 

WHEREAS, Various Alaska scientific and professional societies such 
	as Sigma Xi, Alaska Geological Society, and Unified Fairbanks 
	have endorsed the construction of the classroom/lab 
	facilities; and

WHEREAS, The State of Alaska, in a time of financial difficulty, has 
	been unable to fund new instructional facilities that are 
	needed in Fairbanks and Anchorage; and

WHEREAS, Fairbanks and Anchorage are in need of such capital 
	projects because of high unemployment and the economic 
	benefit said project would have on these communities; and 

WHEREAS, In the Railbelt Energy Fund lies the resources necessary 
	to construct the instructional buildings needed so desperately 
	on the Fairbanks and Anchorage campuses; now 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, That the UAF Faculty Senate goes on 
	record as requesting that the Board of Regents directly 
	approach the legislature and suggest that the legislature 
	utilize a portion of the money in the Railbelt Energy Fund for 
	the purposes of constructing an instructional building 
	dedicated to the natural sciences on the UAF Fairbanks campus 
	and an instructional building devoted to general classroom use 
	at the UAA Anchorage campus.
