RESOLUTION
===========

BE IT RESOLVED, That the UAF Faculty Senate moves to confirm the 
Chemistry Department Peer Review Committee  for the academic 
year 1995-96 indicated below:

	Don Button, Chemistry
	Larry Duffy, Chemistry

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #59 on 
November 13, 1995:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the policies on course 
compression and course approval by adding the following:

	Any course compressed to less than six weeks must be 
	approved by the college or school's curriculum council.  
	Furthermore, any core course compressed to less than 6 weeks 
	must be approved by the Core Review Committee.  

	Any new course proposal must indicate those course 
	compression formats in which the course will be taught.  Only 
	those formats approved will be allowed for scheduling.  


	EFFECTIVE: 	Fall 1996

	RATIONALE:	There is no existing institutional policy 
		establishing an approval process for offering specific 
		courses in a compressed format.  This lack of an approval 
		process has caused some faculty to question the 
		appropriateness of some compressed courses.  The 
		proposed policy change implements an approval process 
		using the existing governance structure and places the 
		burden of review at the college/school level.  A more 
		general review by the Core Curriculum Committee is 
		required for proposals to compress core courses because 
		of their common use across disciplines.

		Courses currently offered in a compressed format were 
		not granted blanket approval so that individual colleges 
		and schools could review their current compressed 
		offerings.  The proposed policy does not prohibit 
		colleges/schools from granting such a blanket approval 
		themselves.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #59 on 
November 13, 1995:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the statement on 
Interdisciplinary Studies as currently listed in the UAF Catalog with 
the following noted changes:

[[    ]] =  Deletions
CAPS =  Additions


	Interdisciplinary Studies is a program available to UAF 
students within the associate of applied science, bachelor of arts, 
bachelor of science, and bachelor of technology degree options.  The 
interdisciplinary program option provides flexibility to students 
with well-defined goals who do not fit into one of the established 
majors offered by the university.

	A student may submit his/her proposal for an interdisciplinary 
program upon completion of 15 credits at UAF [[and preferably 30 
credits (for the associate's degree), or 60 credits (for the bachelor's 
degree) prior to graduation.]], AND HE/SHE SHALL HAVE AT LEAST 30 
CREDITS REMAINING IN HIS/HER PROPOSED DEGREE PROGRAM WHEN 
SEEKING APPROVAL FOR AN INTERDISCIPLINARY DEGREE.  The 
proposed curriculum must differ significantly from established 
degree programs at UAF and will require evidence that the necessary 
facilities and faculty are available to ensure an approximation of a 
normal undergraduate degree.  All general requirements for the 
A.A.S., B.A., B.S., or B.T. degree must be met.

	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 requirementS of the proposed program.  (A 
MINIMUM OF TWO DISCIPLINES IS REQUIRED FOR THE INTER-
DISCIPLINARY DEGREE).  The student then obtains an advisory 
committee of at least three faculty members from the appropriate 
disciplines  THERE SHALL BE AT LEAST ONE FORMAL MEETING WITH 
THE FULL COMMITTEE TO REVIEW THE STUDENTıS PROPOSAL.  The 
committee will appoint a chair, review the proposed program, select 
a degree title in concert with the student, and make its 
recommendation.  Applicants then submit to the Provost their 
proposal for the program they wish to pursue, specifying the degree, 
proposed curriculum WORKSHEET, and rationale.  THE DEGREE IS 
AWARDED THROUGH THE SCHOOL OR COLLEGE OF THE CHAIR OF THE 
COMMITTEE, SUBJECT TO APPROVAL BY THE PROVOST.

	Students interested in pursuing an interdisciplinary A.A.S., 
B.A., B.S., or B.T. degree, or who want to explore this as a degree 
option, can contact the Academic Advising Center to receive 
assistance in finding faculty advisors and developing their 
curriculum proposal.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Fall 1996

	RATIONALE:	Clarification of procedures and requirements 
		for interdisciplinary degrees.

		of Student Leaders and the Staff Alliance, and make the 
		Systemwide Governance Council more of a coordinating 
		group for those three organizations.
