March 25, 1996:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the UAF Governance 
Coordinating Procedures to delete the Library and Information 
Technology Users Committee.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	The current committee is inactive and not 
		functional at this time.  To delete committees from the 
		UAF Governance Coordinating Committee requires an 
		amendment to the Procedures.  The amendment requires 
		a two-thirds vote from each of the three governing 
		bodies, ASUAF, Faculty Senate,. and Staff Council, and 
		Chancellor's approval.


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

[[   ]] = Delete

	ARTICLE V	Committee

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #62 on 
March 25, 1996:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to suspend for one year the change in 
the last day of late registration.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	At its Meeting #59 on November 13, 1995 the 
		Faculty Senate approved several date changes to simplify 
		and clarify dates for various deadlines.  We have since 
		found that moving the last day for late registration to 
		the second Friday of instruction causes major problems 
		with the refund policy and for the fee assessment and 
		collection processes.  A one-year delay in implementing 
		this change will give the Accounting and Business 
		Operations Office an opportunity to review the current 
		policies affected by this change.

APPROVED:  J. Wadlow, Chancellor  		Date:  3/28/96

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #62 on 
March 25, 1996:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to confirm the membership on the Ad 
Hoc Committee on Unit Criteria consisting of one member from each 
of the following committees:  Curricular Affairs, Faculty Affairs; 
Scholarly Activities; Faculty Development, Assessment, and 
Improvement; and Service Committee.

	Madeline Schatz, Curricular Affairs
	Barbara Alexander, Faculty Affairs
	Paul Layer, Scholarly Activities
	Ray RaLonde, Faculty Development, Assessment, &

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #62 on 
March 25, 1996:


MOTION PASSED (2 nays)
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve that high school students 
accepted into the concurrent enrollment (AHEAD) program will be 
admitted to full freshman status at UAF, and that the minimum high 
school cumulative grade point average for admission to the 
concurrent enrollment (AHEAD) program will be 2.50.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	The AHEAD program will provide for the 
		formal admission to UAF for high school students 
		enrolled in their senior year.  Because the UAF admission 
		policy requires high school graduation and/or 18 years of 
		age as the basic admission criteria, this change provides 
		for the admission of non-high school graduates under the 
		age of 18 who meet the requirements for admission to 
		the AHEAD program.  This change allows these students 
		to register earlier and to be assigned an advisor.  No 
		change is being made for high school students that are 
		simply taking a few courses.

		The AHEAD program is designed for high school students 
		who have completed three-fourths of their high school 
		core curriculum, have exceptional general scholastic 
		and/or specific talent abilities, and have been 
		recommended for acceptance into the AHEAD program by 
		both their high school and university representatives.  
		The committee felt that the required cumulative grade 
		point average should be above average.  The current 
		criteria for high school students to take university 
		courses is a 2.00 GPA so a higher standard is required for 
		acceptance into the AHEAD program.



Signed:  Eric Heyne, President, UAF Faculty Senate	Date:  3/27/96


APPROVED:  J. Wadlow, Chancellor *		Date:  3/28/96


* While approving, I ask you to consider a higher gpa.  Thanks.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #62 on 
March 25, 1996:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to refer to the Faculty Affairs 
Committee the following motion on changes to proposed Regents' 
Policy on Post-Tenure Evaluation.

CAPS = Additions
[[   ]]  = Deletions


Post-Tenure Evaluation

Tenured faculty members will be evaluated intensively at least 
every FIVE [[three]] years by peer faculty and administrators.  
These evaluations will be conducted in accordance with the 
criteria in Regents' Policy, University Regulation, and MAU rules 
and procedures on evaluation.  MAU rules and procedures will 
include a process for addressing situations in which the 
competence and/or performance of a faculty member is deemed to 
be unsatisfactory.

Once a faculty member receives an unsatisfactory evaluation, 
annual evaluations will take place until the faculty member 
receives a satisfactory evaluation.  Unsatisfactory evaluations 
for three consecutive years constitute grounds for termination 
for cause.  AN UNSATISFACTORY EVALUATION MUST BE BASED ON 
THE FACULTY MEMBER'S UNWILLINGNESS OR INABILITY TO FULFILL 
A REASONABLE AND CUSTOMARY PROFESSIONAL OBLIGATION FOR 
THAT POSITION.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately
