The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #22 on 
November 12, 1990:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve the following guidelines 
for writing intensive courses:


A.	GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR 3-CREDIT COURSES WITH  "W" 
	DESIGNATOR

1.	The lower-division writing sequence as specified in the Core 
Curriculum will be a prerequisite for all "W"- designated courses.

2.	Instructors are encouraged to have students write an ungraded 
diagnostic composition on or near the first day of class to help 
assess writing ability and general competence in the discipline.  [If 
diagnostic tests indicate that remedial work may be needed, 
teachers can set up specialized tutoring for their students with UAF 
Writing Center tutors.]

3.	Teachers regularly evaluate students' writing and inform 
students of their progress.  If a major written project (research 
project) is part of the course, the project should be supervised in 
stages.  If possible, a writing activity should comprise a major 
portion of the final examination.

4.	At least one personal conference should be devoted to the 
student's writing per term and drafts of papers should receive 
evaluation from the teacher and/or peers.

5.	Written material should comprise a majority of the graded 
work in the course for it to be designated "intensive."  "Written 
material" can consist of quizzes and exams with short answers or 
essay sections, journals, field notes, informal responses to reading 
or class lectures, structured essays, research projects, performance 
reviews, lab reports, or any forms suitable to the discipline being 
taught.


B.	GUIDELINES FOR THE "W" DESIGNATOR IN TECHNICAL COURSES

1.	In order to ensure that technical disciplines can meet the 
goals of the writing intensive requirements without compromising 
the technical quality of their courses, such disciplines may 
substitute longer courses or a series of courses (typically 1-credit 
labs) for each of the two necessary 3-credit writing intensive or 
"W"-designated courses.  Courses meeting all the general guidelines 
will, of course, also be acceptable.

2.	The longer course option allows the "W" designator for a 4- or 
5-credit course in which written material comprises a portion of 
the grade equivalent to "a majority" of a 3-credit course.  The course 
must also meet the other general guidelines.

3.	The series option allows a student to replace one or both 3-
credit "W" courses with a series of courses, each of which may be 
less than three credits--e.g., a series of 1-credit or 1-credit-
equivalent laboratories.  Each series, however, must sum to the 
equivalent of at least one 3-credit "W"- designated course.  The 
initial course in the series will be designated "W1" and, while less 
than three credits, will fulfill all the other general requirements for 
a "W."  The subsequent courses will base a majority of the grade on 
written material.  Students must take the "W1" course before taking 
the other courses in the series.


**	To grade a course on written work means to use the student's 
written work as the basis for his or her grade.  Written work is 
graded mainly on content and organization, with tone, word choice, 
sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, and spelling accounting 
for a smaller fraction of the grade.

O'Rourke, Chancellor Date: 11/29/90 *See attached memo for explanation. **************** JUSTIFICATION FOR CHANGE Change in BA requirements is necessary in order to articulate this degree with the new baccalaureate core curriculum. Nineteen faculty members, representing departments offering the BA degree, met three times in May to develop a proposal. This was distributed to faculty in June. Based on comments from faculty throughout the university, the proposal was revised slightly and presented to a general meeting of some 60 faculty, held October 18th. There was consensus in support of the revision to degree requirements. Humanities and Social Sciences: Because sufficient breadth in humanities and social sciences instruction will be available in the "Perspective on the Human Condition," students should have the freedom to develop depth within one or two disciplines, or take courses from several disciplines based on interest. Mathematics: Logic has been removed from the mathematics requirement because Philosophy 204 is now taught as a course in critical thinking, instead of symbolic logic. Minor/non-English language option: Faculty continue to see value in the minor requirement. The consensus of faculty opinion is that study of a foreign or Alaska Native language should be encouraged strongly, but not required. Minimum credits: Because the core curriculum contains only one upper-division course, and because most students electing the foreign/Alaska Native language option would take lower-division courses, faculty believe the upper-division requirement should be reduced from 48 to 39 credits. Double counting: Current catalog language is unclear as to the circumstances under which double counting is permitted. The revision clarifies this point. ------------------------------------------------------------- The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #22 on November 12, 1990: MOTION PASSED (unanimous approval) =============== The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the Bachelor of Science degree requirements to the following: CORE CURRICULUM REQUIREMENTS 38-39 credits Communications 9 credits English 111 and English 211 or 213 Speech communications 131 or 141 Humanities and Social Sciences 18 credits Perspectives on the Human Condition, 6 courses or 4 courses plus two semester- length courses in a - single non-English language taken at the university level Library and information skills 0-1 credits Successful completion of library skills competency test or LS 100/101 Mathematics 3 credits Math 131 or a course in calculus (Math 162, 200, 201, 202, 272 or any math course having one of these as a prerequisite) Natural sciences 8 credits Two 4-credit courses, with labs, from approved natural science core courses with depth or breadth emphasis Two designated writing intensive courses and one oral communication intensive course at the upper division level O adt'l credits BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 81-82 credits Complete the following in addition to the core: Natural sciences 8 credits A one-year sequence in one natural science BEYOND THE CORE.

Sufficient funding should be sought to make university salaries competitive on the open market and to preserve real income. This action is effective October 20,1990." RATIONALE: Because of the 4-year salary freeze followed by two years of modest increases, university salaries are below market and have lost ground relative to inflation. As an example, the journal SCIENCE indicates that there will be a shortfall of 9,000 Ph.D's by the year 2000. Combined with the estimate that one-third of all present faculty members will retire during this ten year period, we are facing a period of increased challenges in recruiting new faculty members. The article also shows that 63 % of universities had difficulty recruiting their top candidates in 1990, up from 25% in 1987. In order to maintain quality teaching and research at the university into the next century, it is imperative that immediate steps be taken to keep salary levels fully competitive in this increasingly tight market. Further, the current inflation rate has reached 7% independently of increased fuel costs. The university must preserve the real income of its employees.
