The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #19 on 
May 7, 1990:


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

In the event that $1.9 million becomes available to supplement FY90 
compensation, the UAF Faculty Senate moves to recommend that the 
faculty portion of these funds be distributed on an equal dollar basis 
to all permanent faculty and that the increases be built into the base 
salary.  


	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	If compensation funds become available late 
		in the legislative session, this will give administration 
		a clear signal as to the faculty wishes for distribution.

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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to charge the Administrative 
Committee to create a survey for faculty distribution based on 
results of the self-study questionnaires.  The survey will be 
distributed in Fall 1990.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	It would be helpful if more significant data was 
		available on the issues addressed in the faculty self-
		study questionnaire.  The return from the original survey 
		was statistically small and was perhaps affected by it 
		being done as part of the self study.

	EFFECTIVE:	Fall 1990

	RATIONALE:	As a new course proposal makes its way

Approved:  Patrick J. O'Rourke, Chancellor  		Date:  5/15/90


-------------------------------------------------------------

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #19 on 
May 7, 1990:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to endorse the following 
recommendations of the UAF Assembly Computer Users Committee 
included in its report dated April 16, 1990.

Recommendations 
================

A director of academic computing should be appointed as soon as 
possible.  Given that funding for such a position was available last 
year when Tom Hassler held the position, the appointment of this 
director should not be contingent on increased state funding for the 
proposed academic computing increment.   The new director of 
academic computing should act as expeditiously as possible to carry 
out the following tasks: 

-	Coordinate with UAA to allow UAF users to make use of ACAD2 
	in Anchorage, which is operating at less than 20% of capacity. 

-	Institute procedures to route all CPU-intensive batch jobs to 
	ACAD2 in order to relieve the load on ACAD3. 

-	Communicate with research faculty regarding the availability 
	of supercomputer grants.  The committee feels that it would 
	be appropriate to ban all jobs requiring more than a certain 
	amount of CPU time from the VAX given the availability of 
	such supercomputer grants. 

-	Communicate with all faculty regarding the availability of 
	off-campus computer resources via the Internet. 

-	Coordinate with UACN to arrange automatic distribution of 
	computer mail among various campus hosts using the 
	University's new class-B Internet license in order to decrease 
	the load on the VAX from electronic mail. 

-	Update the census of public computing facilities and prepare a 
	budget for repair and replacement. Our informal estimate is 
	that necessary repairs and replacements would cost around 
	$50,000 at this time. 

-	Prepare a census of rural campus computing facilities and 
	curriculum-related computer and telecommunication needs and 
	prepare a budget for repair, expansion, and replacement. 

Because of the perception among faculty that funds for academic 
computing have historically been (and continue to be) diverted to 
administrative use, we strongly recommend that the new director of 
academic computing should report directly to the Vice Chancellor of 
Academic Affairs rather than to the Director of Planning and 
Information Systems.  This recommendation is not intended as 
criticism of existing individuals, but rather as a way to deal with 
widespread faculty perceptions by removing any appearance of 
conflict of interest. 


	EFFECTIVE:	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	The Academic Computer Users Committee has 
		spent the past three months studying the current state of 
		campus-wide academic computing at UAF, during which 
		we have received input from students, faculty, UAF staff, 
		and statewide staff.  This document summarizes our 
		findings, concerns, and recommendations.  

		This motion deals only with issues regarding campus-
		wide academic computing. 

		Findings 
		========

		ACAD3 has been at near 100% of both processor and port 
		capacity since January.  Many users are unable even to 
		sign on, since the maximum number of allowed users is 
		often exceeded.  For those who are able to sign on, 
		response time is often very slow. 

		Between 30% and 40% of processor use of the VAX is by 
		numerically-intensive jobs submitted by faculty and 
		graduate students.  It appears that much of this is from 
		users in research institutes who use free time on ACAD3 
		instead of paid time on institute machines, or 
		supercomputer access which requires advance 
		permission. 

		A significant portion of VAX port use is by statewide 
		administrative users (SX accounts) who remain logged on 
		all day to use the electronic mail system (all users other 
		than statewide administrative users are automatically 
		logged off after a reasonable period of inactivity). This 
		contributes substantially to the problem with exceeding 
		the maximum number of allowed users . 

		Public-access student labs suffer from old, poorly-
		maintained equipment.  

		There is a perception among faculty that funds for 
		academic computing have historically been diverted to 
		administrative use.  Both UAF and Statewide personnel 
		have confirmed that this was standard operating practice 
		during the period when Statewide was responsible for all 
		computer administration.  There is a strong suspicion 
		among faculty in many units that this practice has 
		continued since academic computing was turned over to 
		the units (with a tiny fraction of its original nominal 
		budget).

-------------------------------------------------------------

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #19 on 
May 7, 1990:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to establish the following policy on 
evaluation of administrators:

POLICY

FACULTY ROLE IN ADMINISTRATOR EVALUATION

Coverage:  The evaluation system would involve the evaluation of 
"Academic Administrators" which would include Academic Deans, 
Directors of Institutes, Director of Libraries, Rural Campus 
Directors, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and the Vice 
Chancellor for Research and Dean of the Graduate School and the 
Chancellor.  Academic Administrators are defined as those 
administrators holding academic rank whose positions directly 
impact the academic program and whose performance directly 
effects the ability of faculty to carry out their academic duties.

Purpose:  The purpose of the evaluation is for the faculty to provide 
appraisal of administrator's performance.  The year in which the 
faculty evaluate administrators, the faculty evaluation will be a 
part of a regularly scheduled evaluation process carried out by the 
appropriate Vice Chancellor for those who report to the Vice 
Chancellor or by the Chancellor for the evaluation of the Vice 
Chancellors.

Frequency:  The faculty contribution to the evaluation process will 
occur every four years, with each administrator conducting an 
interim evaluation for their own benefit every two years.  It  is 
expected that while administrators will continue to be evaluated on 
an annual basis by the appropriate individual, the fourth year 
evaluation will be more extensive and structured and will involve 
substantial input from all faculty in the appropriate college, 
institute or unit.

Composition of the Evaluating Committee:

The faculty of each unit shall elect five to seven members of the 
senior faculty (tenured) of that unit to comprise a committee which 
will gather, evaluate, analyze the faculty opinion of the performance 
of the administrator heading that unit.  The committee will prepare 
a detailed report on the administrators performance as seen from a 
faculty perspective which will be submitted both to the appropriate 
Vice Chancellor, or in the case of Vice Chancellor's, to the 
Chancellor and to the administrator being evaluated.

The faculty committee will use a uniform survey instrument in 
soliciting faculty opinion so as to provide fair and comparable data.  
This instrument will address both administrative and academic 
contributions.  The review process is expected to occur in the spring 
semester of the fourth year projected to take no longer than three 
weeks from the time questionnaires are sent to the faculty, to the 
time a formal performance report is submitted to both the 
administrator involved and the representative of the administration.

The report submitted shall be treated, in terms of confidentiality, 
the same as performance evaluations of senior faculty.

Election of the Evaluating Committee:

The Senate shall conduct the election of members of the Evaluating 
Committee for each academic unit.

Responsibility and prerogatives of the administrator being reviewed:

The administrator being reviewed shall be provided with a copy of 
the survey instruments to prepare a evaluation addressing 
significant performance areas for the period under review (4 prior 
years).

This evaluation shall be distributed to all faculty along with the 
survey instrument.

The administrator being reviewed will have the opportunity to 
respond to and address any points developed in the evaluation and 
submit comments.  The report and the comments submitted by the 
administrator being reviewed shall be considered together by the 
administrator to whom the administrator being reviewed reports.  

Role of the Chancellor or Vice Chancellor:

The Chancellor or appropriate Vice Chancellor may, at his or her 
discretion, discuss material parts of the report or response with 
either the committee of senior faculty or the administrator involved 
prior to finalizing the evaluation of performance of the 
administrator being reviewed.

The cognizant administrator will review the evaluation with the 
Committee.

Evaluation of the Process:

Annually, the Senate or appropriate committee shall review the 
effectiveness of the process and any instrument used with the 
representatives of the review committees from the various 
academic units.  This review process will focus on improving the 
effectiveness of the process and will not involve the disclosure of 
elements of the evaluation report.
