The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #49 on 
April 25,1994:


MOTION PASSED
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve a change in the procedures 
for the program requirements for degrees in Interdisciplinary 
Studies during the 1994-95 academic year.


			*******************


	Procedure for Obtaining an Advisory Committee for an
	   Undergraduate Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies


In developing an interdisciplinary proposal, the student should 
specify the degree (A.A.S., B.A., B.S., or B.T.), include an explanation 
of how the proposed program differs substantially from established 
UAF programs, and a discussion that current UAF resources are 
adequate to meet the requirement of the proposed program. The 
student should first find a faculty member to serve as a chair of an 
advisory committee for the degree program. Thereafter, the degree 
program will be administratively attached to the department and 
college/school of the committee chair. The chair will help the 
student find at least two additional faculty members from 
appropriate disciplines to serve on the advisory committee. This 
committee will review the proposed program, select (in concert 
with the student) a title for the program and make its 
recommendation to the Provost through the cognizant dean.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 1994

	RATIONALE: 	This minor change will provide an 
		administrative home (college/school) for 
		interdisciplinary degrees and place the cognizant dean 
		in the approval loop. The Curricular Affairs Committee 
		will consider policy changes concerning interdisciplinary 
		degrees during the 1994-95 academic year.

APPROVED:  Joan Wadlow, Chancellor  		Date:  5/3/94


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

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #49 on 
April 25,1994:


MOTION PASSED
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to delete the university-wide 
requirement for a demonstrated "competence in a foreign language or 
a research tool" for the Ph.D. degree and to allow departments and 
programs to decide whether or not a foreign language or a research 
tool will be required for degrees within that department or program.


  	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 1994

	RATIONALE: 	The intent of this recommended action is not 
		to encourage abolition of the language or research tool 
		requirement by any department or program which 
		considers it an important part of their Ph.D. curriculum. 
		By having this requirement decentralized, departments 
		and programs which consider it important can set 
		rigorous standards appropriate to their disciplines. The 
		requirement can be eliminated by departments and 
		programs which believe that the requirement is not 
		adding substantially to their students' education. For 
		example, when nearly all students use a pre-existing 
		language skill to meet the requirement. Departments and 
		programs should develop their own revised requirement 
		for publication in the Graduate Catalog.

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

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #49 on 
April 25,1994:


MOTION PASSED
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section 3 (ARTICLE V: 
Committees) E., PERMANENT, 8. of the Bylaws as follows:


((   )) =   Deletion
CAPS =  Addition


8.	The Faculty Appeals Committee shall be composed of ONE 
	((five)) tenured faculty member, selected FROM EACH 
	COLLEGE/SCHOOL AND CONFIRMED by the Faculty Senate, who 
	shall serve for a two-year term. Members' terms will be 
	staggered to provide continuity. COMMITTEE MEMBERS SHALL 
	SERVE AS A HEARING PANEL POOL TO SERVE AS NEEDED ON 
	GRIEVANCE HEARING PANELS.

	A PROMOTION/TENURE APPEALS SUBCOMMITTEE COMPOSED OF 
	FIVE TENURED FACULTY ((The committee)) will hear all 
	promotion and/or tenure reconsideration requests and report 
	its findings to the Chancellor according to University of 
	Alaska Fairbanks Regulations, Section IV, B, 4.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:  	Expanding the membership of the appeals 
		committee will result in a larger pool of faculty to serve 
		as needed on grievance hearing panels. The formation of a 
		subcommittee will fill the need for an appeals process 
		for promotion/tenure reconsiderations.

APPROVED:  Joan Wadlow, Chancellor  		Date:  5/3/94

Evaluation of Faculty; Initial Appointment, Annual Review, 
Reappointment, Promotion, Tenure, and Sabbatical Leave, Article 
IV.B.4. Exclusive Process for Reconsideration, fifth and sixth
paragraphs to read:


((  ))  =  Deletions
CAPS =  Additions


	The Chancellor will refer all reconsideration requests to the 
	PROMOTION/TENURE APPEALS SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE Faculty 
	Appeals Committee, which is a permanent committee of the 
	Senate.  The PROMOTION/TENURE APPEALS SUBCOMMITTEE 
	((Faculty Appeals Committee)) shall be composed of five 
	tenured faculty members selected by the Faculty Senate who 
	shall serve for two-year terms. Members' terms will be 
	staggered to provide continuity.

	This SUBCOMMITTEE ((Committee)) shall examine the file to 
	determine whether or not the tenure or promotion process and 
	the decision is consistent with Board of Regents Policy or 
	Regulations, University of Alaska Fairbanks Policy or 
	Regulations, and unit standards or indices; and whether or not 
	there is evidence that a material error was made or that there 
	is reason to believe that substantial unfairness did occur.  In 
	conducting the review of the decision, the committee shall not 
	substitute its judgment for that of the reviewing bodies but 
	shall determine whether there were other factors which 
	should be considered in the decision.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE: 	Expanding the membership of the Faculty 
		Appeals Committee will result in a pool of faculty to 
	serve as needed on grievance hearing panels. The formation of 
	a subcommittee will fill the need for an appeals process for 
	promotion/tenure reconsiderations.

	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

		representation on each committee.
