The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #95 on 
May 1, 2000:


MOTION:
======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the Graduate Degree
Requirements (page 39 & 43 of the 2000-2001 UAF Catalog) as 
follows:


[[   ]]  =  Deletions
CAPS =  Additions


GENERAL UNIVERSITY REQUIREMENTS

Grade Point Average and Grade Requirements

You must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (B) for good standing and to 
graduate.  You must earn an A or B grade (no P grades) in [[300-]] 
400 level courses; a C grade will be accepted in 600-level courses 
provided you maintain a B grade average.  For the purposes of 
graduate good standing and meeting degree requirements, all grades, 
including those generated from retaking a course, are included in the 
GPA.


MASTER'S DEGREES

Credit Requirements

a.	Successfully complete a minimum of 30 semester credits. 

b. 	Complete at least 21 semester credits, including those earned for 
the thesis and research/project, at the 600-level.  Remaining credits 
may be applied from courses at the [[300- and]] 400-level.

c. 	No 100-, 200-, 300-, or 500-level credits may be applied toward 
master's degree requirements.


	EFFECTIVE:   	Immediately
			Upon Chancellor Approval

	RATIONALE:   	The above changes delete the use of 
		300-level courses as fulfilling graduate level course 
		requirements.  This brings UAF policy in the catalog 
		into compliance with the Board of Regents' decision 
		to disallow the use of 300-level courses for 
		graduate study.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #95 on 
May 1, 2000:


MOTION 
=======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves provisionally to amend the UAF Faculty 
Appointment and Evaluation Policies and Regulations for the Evaluation 
of Faculty: Initial Appointment, Annual Review, Reappointment, 
Promotion, Tenure, and Sabbatical Leave as attached. 


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately
			Upon Chancellor's Approval

	RATIONALE:  	Unit Criteria as a component of
		evaluation, tenure, and promotion was apparently 
		removed from the last "Blue Book" due to an erroneous 
		belief that the faculty union contracts rendered them 
		void or redundant in the "Blue Book".  This is emphatically 
		not the case, and so we have reinserted the relevant 
		paragraphs on Unit Criteria from the previous "Blue 
		Book".

		The Faculty Appeals and Oversight Committee will make 
		corrections to bring the policy into agreement with the 
		ACCFT contract and submit it for reconsideration at the 
		October 2000 Faculty Senate meeting.

 [[  ]]  = 	Deletion
CAPS = 	Addition


III.	PERIODIC EVALUATION OF FACULTY

B. 	UNIT STANDARDS AND INDICES.  UNIT STANDARDS AND INDICES 
	ARE THE RECOGNIZED VALUES USED BY A FACULTY WITHIN A 
	SPECIFIC DISCIPLINE TO ELUCIDATE, BUT NOT REPLACE, THE 
	GENERAL FACULTY CRITERIA ESTABLISHED IN A., ABOVE, FOR 
	EVALUATION OF FACULTY PERFORMANCE ON AN ONGOING BASIS 
	AND FOR PROMOTION, TENURE AND SABBATICAL REVIEW.

	UNIT STANDARDS AND INDICES MAY BE, BUT ARE NOT REQUIRED 
	TO BE, DEVELOPED BY THOSE UNITS WISHING TO DO SO.  UNITS 
	THAT CHOOSE NOT TO DEVELOP DISCIPLINE-SPECIFIC UNIT 
	STANDARDS AND INDICES MUST FILE A STATEMENT SO STATING 
	WITH THE CHANCELLOR'S OFFICE WHICH SHALL SERVE AS THE 
	OFFICIAL REPOSITORY FOR APPROVED UNIT STANDARDS AND 
	INDICES.

	UNIT STANDARDS AND INDICES, IF DESIRED, WILL BE DEVELOPED 
	BY THE FACULTY IN A DISCIPLINE.  AFTER APPROVAL BY A 
	MAJORITY OF THE DISCIPLINE FACULTY, THE UNIT STANDARDS 
	AND INDICES WILL BE REVIEWED AND APPROVED BY THE 
	COGNIZANT DEAN WHO WILL FORWARD THE UNIT STANDARDS 
	AND INDICES TO THE PROVOST.  THE PROVOST WILL REVIEW FOR 
	CONSISTENCY WITH POLICY AND WILL FORWARD THESE 
	STANDARDS AND INDICES TO THE SENATE FOR ITS AND THE 
	CHANCELLOR'S APPROVAL.

	UNIT STANDARDS AND INDICES WILL BE REVIEWED PERIODICALLY 
	BY THE FACULTY OF THE UNIT.  REVISION OF UNIT STANDARDS 
	AND INDICES MUST FOLLOW THE ESTABLISHED REVIEW PROCESS.  
	IF THE UNIT STANDARDS AND INDICES ARE NOT REVISED, A 
	STATEMENT OF REAFFIRMATION OF THE CURRENT UNIT 
	STANDARDS AND INDICES MUST BE FILED WITH THE 
	CHANCELLOR'S OFFICE, FOLLOWING THE REVIEW.


	UNIT STANDARDS AND INDICES, WHEN DEVELOPED BY THE 
	FACULTY AND APPROVED BY THE SENATE AND THE 
	CHANCELLOR'S OFFICE, MUST BE USED IN THE REVIEW 
	PROCESSES BY ALL LEVELS OF REVIEW.  THEIR USE IS NOT 
	OPTIONAL.

	IT SHALL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CANDIDATE FOR 
	TENURE OR PROMOTION TO INCLUDE THESE APPROVED 
	STANDARDS AND INDICES IN THE APPLICATION FILE. 


IV.	EVALUATION PROCESS FOR RETENTION, PROMOTION, 
TENURE, AND POST TENURE REVIEW


A.	Linkage of Promotion/Tenure. An award of tenure is concurrent 
	with promotion and vice versa. Any faculty member applying for 
	promotion to the associate level must also apply for tenure; and 
	a faculty member at the rank of assistant professor may not 
	apply for tenure without concurrently seeking advancement to 
	the rank of associate professor.

B.	Faculty with Academic Rank

	1.	Criteria and Eligibility.  A record of continuing effective 
		performance shall be expected.  Procedures, performance 
		criteria and requirements are set forth in the applicable 
		union contracts, UAF Faculty Policies, and in policies of 
		the Board of Regents and the regulations of the University 
		system currently in effect and as they may change.

	2.	Review Process.  Promotion and tenure of a faculty 
		member results from a multi-level process of evaluation 
		beginning in the academic unit of the candidate.

		a.	Constitution and Operation of the University-wide 
			Peer Review committees. 

			(1)	For the purpose of evaluation for tenure 
				and/or promotion of members of the United 
				Academics bargaining unit, a list of the 
				names of seven tenured unit members will be 
				presented BY THE UAF FACULTY SENATE to 
				the Provost who will select the committee 
				or committees.  Each unit peer review 
				committee may nominate one of its members 
				to serve. The list will be determined from 
				those nominees by vote of all faculty who 
				serve on unit peer review committees.  
				Faculty shall remain on the list for a term 
				of two years with the terms being staggered.  
				No specific peer review committee can be 
				represented by more than one person.  
				A faculty member may not stand for 
				promotion during the term of appointment 
				to the list.

			(2)	For the purpose of pre or post tenure 
				evaluation of members of the United 
				Academics bargaining unit, a list of the 
				names of seven faculty members will be 
				presented BY THE UAF FACULTY SENATE 
				to the Provost who will select the 
				committee or committees.  Each unit peer 
				review committee may nominate one of its 
				members to serve.  The list will be 
				determined from those nominees by vote of 
				all faculty who serve on unit peer review 
				committees.  Faculty shall remain on the list 
				for a term of two years with the terms 
				being staggered.  No more than one faculty 
				member on the list can be a member of any 
				specific peer review committee.  A faculty 
				member may not stand for post tenure 
				revue during the term of appointment to 
				the list.

			(3)	For the purpose of evaluation for tenure 
				and/or promotion of members of the ACCFT 
				bargaining unit, a list of the names of nine 
				faculty members will be presented 
				BY THE CRA EXECUTIVE DEAN 
				to the Provost who will select the 
				committee or committees.  The list will be 
				selected from the tenured faculty in the 
				ACCFT bargaining unit by vote of those 
				faculty.  Faculty shall remain on the list for 
				a term of two years with the terms being 
				staggered.  A faculty member may not 
				stand for promotion during the term 
				of appointment to the list.  The Provost will 
				appoint two members from the United 
				Academics University-wide Promotion/
				Tenure Committee to serve on the ACCFT 
				Promotion/Tenure Committee. 


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

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #95 on 
May 1, 2000:


MOTION
=======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to delete the B.A. in Physical Education,  
the B.S. in Exercise Science, and the Minor in Physical Education.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 2000 or 
			Upon Board of Regents' Approval

	RATIONALE: 	See full program proposal #114 on file in the 
			Governance Office, 312 Signersą Hall.


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

Executive Summary

As a consequence of the Program Assessment conducted in the mid 
1990s, the Physical Education and Exercise Science degrees came 
under review and preliminary consideration was given to phasing out 
the degrees.  In May 1997, following a resignation of the sole faculty 
member in Physical Education and Exercise Science, new admissions to 
the degree programs and minor were suspended.  From 1997 through 
fall 1999, existing majors and minors in these degree programs were 
provided courses through lecturers and adjunct faculty.  All of the 
students impacted completed their coursework by December 1999 and 
will have graduated by spring 2000.

Since May 1997, the degree programs have functioned without full or 
part-time faculty, without a budget, and with no staff.  Consequently, 
there will be no personnel effects, no budgetary effects, no effects on 
facilities, and no effects on current student enrollment if deletion of 
the degrees is approved.  

It is important to retain the courses within the discipline of PE and offer 
them as service courses as demands warrants.  Several of the aquatic 
courses are taught periodically by American Red Cross Instructors or 
Instructor Trainers.  A number of the courses have been taught as 
needed by the Athletic coaches.  Two courses continue to be cross-
listed, one with Education and taught by Education, and the other with 
Psychology and taught by Psychology.  Finally, several courses are 
extremely useful for teacher education and advancement, as well as 
teacher training in PE.  Courses will be offered as demand warrants 
during the academic year and during summer sessions.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #95 on 
May 1, 2000:


MOTION:
======

An Associate of Applied Science degree earned at any regionally 
accredited college or university may be used to meet requirements for 
a minor for the Bachelor of Arts degree.


	EFFECTIVE:   	Immediately
			Upon Chancellor Approval

	RATIONALE:    	Currently we accept only those AAS degree 
		programs listed in the Catalog (Pg. 30, 2000-2001 
		Catalog).  There are other associate of applied 
		science degrees offered through UAF (TVC) that cannot 
		be used in this manner unless approved through the 
		petition process.  In addition, UAF recognizes any AAS 
		degree from an accredited institution towards the
		Bachelor of Technology degree.

		Dean of the Graduate School and the Provost on 
		administrative matters pertinent to the operation 
		and growth of graduate studies at UAF, including 
		financial and tax-related issues and dealings 
		with other universities.  All recommendations

		THE OPERATION AND GROWTH OF GRADUATE STUDIES AT 
		UAF, INCLUDING FINANCIAL AND TAX-RELATED ISSUES

	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:  	The UAF Faculty Senate committee structure 
		is more effectively and efficiently served by combining 
		the duties of the Graduate & Professional Curricular 
		Affairs and the Graduate School Advisory Committee.
