UAF FACULTY SENATE MEETING #62
MARCH 25, 1996


			PRESIDENT'S REPORT - Eric Heyne

Faculty all over campus are wrestling with implementing a merit 
pay system.  I hear that some units are making progress.  Others, 
such as my own division within CLA, have opted to forgo raises and 
not to participate in the merit selection process.  I have no clearer 
idea now than I did at the beginning of this academic year how a 
merit pay system will be implemented at UAF or what the results of 
its implementation will be.  Please feel free to let me know how you 
think the process is going in your unit.

On the Systemwide level the Senate's Alliance representatives have 
been most concerned with changes in Regents' policy regarding 
faculty, especially post-tenure review, which is the single biggest 
change.  New policy was reviewed by the Regents' Academic and 
Student Affairs Committee at a meeting March 14.  I argued for a 
couple of revisions which we will be asking you to endorse in a 
motion under New Business:  a five-year cycle rather than a three-
year cycle, and an additional sentence which I feel gives faculty 
some extra protection against administrators' bad reviews based on 
personal dislike or budgetary constraints.  Regents, notably 
President Gagnon, seemed amenable to the suggested changes, and 
the Systemwide Academic Council has already agreed to insert them, 
but it is still important to determine if UAF faculty agree. 

We will also be asking for a Senate endorsement on the question of 
locus of tenure.  Should it be in a unit, a site or campus, or an MAU?

One aspect of new policy calls for academic outcomes assessment 
on all campuses.  I gather UAF is a little behind the other academic 
MAU's in setting up such assessment, but it's in the works.  Dana 
Thomas is the person to contact with questions about this.  How is 
such assessment going to affect our working lives?  I have no idea, 
but I suspect it will change things significantly.

Some of the most important policy sections, those on faculty 
workload, remain unwritten at this stage.  We will be paying very 
close attention to those as they come out of the Systemwide 
Academic Council sometime this spring.

UAF FACULTY SENATE MEETING #62
MARCH 25, 1996

REPORT ON FACULTY ALLIANCE AND REGENTS' MEETING
Juneau, Alaska, February 14, 15, 16 1996
Donald F. Lynch, President Elect UAF Faculty Senate
February 22, 1996

President Eric Heyne, Mike Jennings, and I attended the Faculty 
Alliance and Regents' meetings held in Juneau, February 14-16.

				HIGHLIGHTS

Politics  Members of the Faculty Alliance, Systems Governance, 
and Student Alliance visited with numerous legislators and the Lt. 
Governor on February 15 in order to present a united front in an 
effort to achieve support for University funding.  The group acted in 
a unified fashion, and this seemed to make an impression.  The most 
significant comment we received was from the Lt. Governor.  She 
stated that the University was one of only three state agencies 
funding for which is not bound by legislative formulae, and, 
therefore, the University's budget can be reduced.

	Regents Reject Consultation with Alliance  The Regents 
rejected the request of the Faculty Alliance to participate in 
meetings of the Academic Affairs sub-committee.  There had been 
previous indications that the Regents did in fact want the Alliance's 
participation in this, the most important committee considering 
faculty matters, but the Regents rejected the request, much to the 
disappointment of Alliance members.  The chair of the Staff Alliance 
stated that "there is a serious communications problem" with the 
Regents.

	Enrollments  In recent years, statewide the number of part 
time students enrolled in the University has decreased, primarily in 
Anchorage.  In addition, the number of people taking more than 
fifteen credit hours per semester has also decreased.  However, the 
percentage of students continuing onward from the fall to the spring 
semester has increased.  UAF's spring enrollments at about 7,300 
people has remained constant, and of these about 4,000 are full time 
students.  The number of full time students in Anchorage has also 
remained constant at somewhat over 5,000.  Most part time students 
in Anchorage are taking general education courses.  Seventy percent 
of all enrollments are at the lower division level.  Lower division 
tuition rates are currently above the average for WICHE community 
colleges.  Approximately forty percent of Alaskan high school 
graduates continuing their education in college are attending the 
University of Alaska.

	University Budget  In lengthy discussions regarding proposed 
tuition increases, information was provided on the University's 
probable financial circumstances.  UAA's Chancellor argued that his 
budget would be in deficit by five to six million dollars out of a 100 
million dollar budget in the coming fiscal year.  To increase average 
class sizes Anchorage has eliminated 235 course sections.

Grievance  After discussion with a legal firm (Ida Shapiro?) from 
Washington (State? D.C.?), the University has decided to postpone 
action on the Grievance Policy.  The outside legal advisers have 
recommended against the proposed two stage system and instead are 
advocating the establishment of an internal expert investigation 
process.  The concerns are compliance with the Americans with 
Disabilities Act and other laws.

Workload  Faculty Workloads should be tied directly to the 
University's mission statement.

	Collection Two  This Collection concerns a variety of issues 
related to research and instruction including policies concerning 
copyright and patent matters and the status of research faculty.  
Regulations concerning these policies are to be discussed with a 
group of research faculty.  The Copyright policy will not be reviewed 
prior to April 18, 1996.  Comments regarding Collection Two should 
be sent to Pat Ivey via E-Mail to insure they do not get lost in the 
system.

	Collection Three  This Collection contains numerous matters 
directly affecting all faculty including a mandatory three year post 
tenure review.  These reviews are under the direction of the 
Chancellors who can consider faculty, administrative, and other 
relevant sources of information in making a determination.  Anyone 
failing this review will be reviewed for two more years, and then if 
still failing will be fired for cause.  Comments on Collection Three 
must be sent to the Statewide Academic Council by May 6, 1996 - 
through Pat Ivey.

	Assessment of Student Achievement.  This assessment is 
mandated by the Northwest Accreditation Association and is to be 
performed under the direction of the President of the University.

	Personnel Records  Under state law, UAF personnel records are 
public documents and are available under the Freedom of Information 
Act.  These records include grievance reports.

	Leaves  The family and medical leave act is under review and 
an effort is being made to compare University benefits with those of 
other institutions.  Vice President for Academic Affairs Nanne Myers 
and the State Wide Academic Council are reviewing sabbatical leave 
policies.  Regents believe that there are serious abuses with sick 
leave policy at the University.  Leave share arrangements must also 
be reviewed to insure confidentiality of medical records.  At present 
the University has a 9,000 member pool of people covered by 
benefits, and compensation is now to include the cost of the total 
benefit package.  These issues are to be reviewed in April 96.

				Some Public Comments

Community College Union (ACC/AFT)  ACC/AFT has 275 members 
and has been the bargaining agent for these faculty for twenty two 
years.  Negotiations requested by the University for a new contract 
started 688 days ago; the University is currently facing eleven 
unfair labor practice cases.  The University negotiating team does 
not have the right to sign a contract and is proposing changes which 
are illegal and are inconsistent with good practice.  ACC/AFT has a 
definite mission, the four part teaching assignment at the 
community college level, and this is quite different and separate 
from the mission of faculty involved in United Academics.  The key 
phrase from ACC/AFT was: We know who we are. 

	University of Alaska Classified Employees Association  The 
contract was ratified on February 17, 1995, but has not been 
fulfilled by the University.  The University seems to be arguing that 
it can not legally enter into a contract, which is a most serious 
position to take.

	Student Alliance  We told you last year that a tuition increase 
would reduce enrollments: it did.  Now we are telling you the same 
thing once again.

				My Overall Impression

The time spent in Juneau was quite enjoyable and the members of 
the Alliance and the people we met were most hospitable.  We owe 
particular thanks to Pat Ivey and Jeannine Burnett and to Prof. Rita 
Dursi Johnson of Juneau.  While everyone was very pleasant, the 
Regents seem to be moving steadily toward approving policies which 
will severely restrict tenure and provide greater flexibility to the 
administration to assign, hire and fire both tenured and non tenured 
faculty.  For example, sixty days notice of termination can be given 
in case of financial exigency.  The Senate needs to take Collections 
Two and Three seriously, although one must admit that faculty 
governance viewpoints on these matters do not seem to matter very 
much to the Regents.  Ideally, of course, faculty and other 
governance groups should be working with the administration at the 
initial stages of policy formulation rather than being in the position 
of merely responding to policies already published and presented to 
the Regents.  Our Faculty Senate is merely one of several forums for 
public comment, not a true participant in the policy making process. 
But we still need to try!

MARCH 25, 1996



	CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT -- THE AHEAD PROGRAM
				Overview

The University of Alaska Fairbanks, in conjunction with the 
Fairbanks North Star Borough School District and a representative 
from private schools, has developed a program to provide a more 
formalized process and structure for high school students taking 
courses at UAF.

The purpose is to admit qualified high school students into UAF as 
concurrently enrolled students (simultaneously enrolled for credit in 
high school and university courses) using a coordinated, systematic, 
four-way model (student, parents, high school AHEAD advisor and 
UAF academic advisor) of planning and academic advising.

The objectives are to:

1.	Offer advanced, non-duplicative instructional opportunities at 
	UAF for local high school students;
2.	Provide secondary and postsecondary credit for the instruction 
	as appropriate (dual credit);
3.	Provide eligible high school students official UAF admittance 
	(with degree-seeking, undeclared major, freshman status);
4.	Provide services for AHEAD Program participants 
	commensurate with UAF degree-seeking students;
5.	Foster planned, cooperative advising between the high school 
	student, parents, high school counselor or teacher, and a UAF 
	academic advisor; and
6.	Provide local high school students with unique opportunities 
	for enriched scholastic and talent development.

High school students will be introduced to the AHEAD Program during 
their freshman year of high school.  While planning for entrance into 
the program is encouraged during the freshman year of high school, 
nothing precludes identification of participants in their sophomore 
or junior year.  However, the earlier the participation in the AHEAD 
Program, the better the opportunity for planning an integrated high 
school and university curriculum which best meets the needs of the 
student.

The AHEAD Program will occur in three phases during a high school 
student's career; information and planning, admission/enrollment 
(usually the senior year), and orientation and advising.

	Information and Planning:  As the most important phase, the 
student, parents, high school counselor and/or teacher, and UAF 
academic advisor should be actively involved in preparing the 
student to make the most out of the opportunity to use the 
AHEAD Program.

	Admission and Enrollment:  Admittance to UAF is based on an 
evaluation of GPA and coursework.  A minimum high school 
grade point average of 2.50 is required.  The applicant must 
have completed  of the high school academic core curriculum 
required for admission as a freshman at UAF.

	Orientation and Advising:  Students accepted into the AHEAD 
Program will attend the orientation and early registration 
program held in late April for all local, incoming freshmen for 
the fall semester at UAF.

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

		CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT -- THE AHEAD PROGRAM
		   (Alaska Higher Education Admission Decision)


The University of Alaska Fairbanks welcomes the enrollment of 
qualified high school students in selected university courses.  In the 
past, local high school sophomores, juniors and seniors have 
successfully completed courses at UAF.  In these cases, the high 
school students were "on their own" without coordinated support 
between the university and the local high schools.  The Concurrent 
Enrollment Program (the AHEAD Program) provides a framework 
through which high school students will receive better coordinated 
assistance in enrolling and completing university courses.

The AHEAD Program is designed to add structure to the currently 
exiting informal method of enrolling high school students at UAF. 
High school students who want to receive academic advising, 
official admission into UAF with degree-seeking status (an 
advantage in the registration process), and high school and 
university credit will want to enroll at UAF through the AHEAD 
Program. However, participation is voluntary: some high school 
students may want to self-select university courses and proceed 
independently as non-degree students.

STATEMENT OF NEED

At the present time, local high school students can, and do, enroll in 
courses at UAF.  Approximately 40 high school students enroll each 
semester in disciplines such as mathematics, music, computer 
science and foreign languages. They do not apply to the university or 
receive admission status. They register as non-degree students, the 
same category as a community member taking a class for personal 
interest. Thus, they are at a disadvantage because they do not 
receive priority registration privileges and are the last to register 
each semester. Furthermore, as non-degree seeking students, they do 
not receive academic advising unless they ask for it, they are not 
readily accounted for in academic progress reports so faculty and/or 
deans can track progress, and very little coordination exists for 
planning the coursework with high school and university credit in 
mind. The AHEAD Program provides high school seniors an 
opportunity to be admitted with degree seeking status, registration 
priority equivalent to university freshmen, coordinated support 
services from the school district and the university, and dual credit 
where appropriate.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The goal/purpose of the AHEAD Program is to:

	Admit qualified high school students into UAF as concurrently 
enrolled students (simultaneously enrolled for credit in high school 
and university courses) using a coordinate, systematic, 4-way model 
(student, parents, high school AHEAD advisor, and UAF academic 
advisor) of planning and academic advising.

The objectives are to:

1.	Offer advanced, non-duplicative instructional opportunities at 
	UAF for local high school students.
2.	Provide secondary and postsecondary credit for the instruction 
	as appropriate (dual credit);
3.	Provide eligible high school students official UAF admission 
	(with degree-seeking, undeclared major, freshman status);
4.	Provide services for AHEAD Program participants 
	commensurate with UAF degree-seeking students;
5.	Foster planned, cooperative advising between the high school 
	student, parents, high school counselor or teacher, and a UAF 
	academic advisor; and
6.	Provide local high school students with unique opportunities 
	for enriched scholastic and talent development.

GENERAL PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

High school students with exceptional general scholastic and/or 
specific talent abilities will be introduced to the AHEAD Program 
during their freshman year of high school. Examples of disciplines 
(subjects) that may be used for concurrent enrollment include 
mathematics, computer science, English, art, music, and theater; 
however, this is not an exhaustive list.

While planning for entrance into the program is encouraged during 
the freshman year of high school, nothing precludes identification of 
participants in their sophomore or junior year.  However, the earlier 
the participation in the AHEAD Program, the better the opportunity 
for planning an integrated high school and university curriculum 
which best meets the needs of the participant.

The AHEAD Program will occur in three phases during a high school 
student's career: information and planning, admission/enrollment 
(usually the senior year), and orientation and advising.

- INFORMATION AND PLANNING

Information sessions for interested students and their parents will 
be held several times during the academic year. High school 
counselors and teachers and university staff will jointly conduct the 
program. Brochures outlining the AHEAD Program will be available.

Early identification of possible participants in the program will 
facilitate planning and enhance the integration of the high school 
and university curricula to best meet the needs of each individual 
enrollee. The high school student should strive to complete as many 
high school requirements through the junior year as possible. This 
will leave the senior year more open for the inclusion of university-
level courses.

The planning phase is the period in which the 4-way model is most 
important. The student, parents, high school counselor and/or 
teacher, and UAF academic advisor should be actively involved in 
preparing the student to make the most out of the opportunity to use 
the AHEAD Program. Courses to be taken for dual credit (meeting a 
high school requirement accruing university credit) should be 
carefully planned and pre-approved during this phase. Also, with 
advanced notice, the university may be able to schedule classes at 
times that meet the needs of the students enrolled in the AHEAD 
Program.

The AHEAD advisor in each high school will expedite requests for 
dual credit. Decisions regarding dual credit rest with the school 
district. An admitted, enrolled student who has successfully 
completed a university course, automatically receives university 
credit for that course and establishes a UAF academic record. 
However, the degree to which a selected university course meets 
high school credit and graduation requirements is determined by the 
school district.

- ADMISSION/ENROLLMENT

Admittance to UAF is based on an evaluation of GPA and coursework.  
A minimum high school grade point average of 2.50 is required. In 
addition, the applicant must have completed  of the high school 
academic core curriculum required for the admission as a freshman 
at UAF or be able to demonstrate progress equivalent to  of the 
core.

Students wishing to enter the program will be evaluated by their 
high school advisor and a UAF academic advisor. The evaluation will 
include a review of qualifications and assessment of the student's 
ability to succeed and benefit from participation in the program. 
Each student must have an unconditional recommendation from each 
of the two representatives in order to be accepted into the AHEAD 
Program. Parental permission also will be required.

Tuition and fees for concurrently enrolled students are based on the 
current tuition and fee rates. The AHEAD advisor in each high school 
may be able to provide information on possible sources of funding. In 
some cases, student may qualify for a tuition waiver or a special 
scholarship.

Participation in the program will require a high level of commitment 
from a student. The full cooperation and active support from parents 
also will be essential. Furthermore, the parents need to acknowledge 
that their son or daughter will be functioning in an adult-based 
environment at UAF. This will differ significantly from the highly-
supervised environment of a high school campus. 

- UNIVERSITY ORIENTATION AND ADVISING

Students accepted into the AHEAD Program will attend an 
orientation and early registration program held in late April for 
incoming freshman for  the following fall semester at UAF. Usually 
this will occur during the spring semester of the student's high 
school junior year. At this time, the student and the UAF academic 
advisor will meet and finalize plans for courses for the year. Actual 
registration for the fall semester classes will be done at that time. 
The student will be eligible for priority (early) registration for the 
spring semester that will be held in November. An orientation-to-
college seminar will be offered during the first semester of 
concurrent enrollment.


PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION

General oversight for the AHEAD Program will be the responsibility 
of an individual designated through the Student Services Division at 
UAF. The ongoing administration of the program will be 
accomplished through an advisory committee composed of the 
following representatives:

	one concurrently enrolled high school student
	one university student (preferably a concurrent enrollment 
		graduate)
	one staff of the FNSB School District Central Office
	one high school advisor of a concurrently enrolled student (not 
		of the student representative)
	one university academic advisor of a concurrently enrolled 
		student
	one staff of UAF Student Services, and
	one parent of concurrently enrolled student (not parent of any 
		student connected with the advisory committee


The committee will monitor the program and provide advice 
concerning program policies and procedures.  Meetings will occur at 
least once per semester, with additional meetings as necessary. 
Members will be appointed by the FNSB School District Central 
Office and the UAF Dean of Student Services.
 
In addition to the administrative advisory committee, a program 
leadership team will exist for each high school involved in 
concurrent enrollment. The team will consist of a student, a high 
school advisor, a parent, and the principal (or designee). The high 
school advisor will be the team leader and will be the liaison with 
the UAF employee designated as the supervisor of the concurrent 
enrollment program. The purpose of the team is to monitor and 
evaluate the concurrent enrollment program as it occurs within each 
high school. If situation-specific problems occur, the team should 
endeavor to expedite solutions. For problems that are recurring or 
are not resolvable at the team level, the issue/concern should be 
passed to the administrative advisory committee. It will not be 
necessary for the team to meet on a regular basis unless there are 
problems that require attention.

UAF FACULTY SENATE MEETING #62
MARCH 25, 1996
SUBMITTED BY CURRICULAR AFFAIRS


MOTION
=======

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.

UAF FACULTY SENATE MEETING #62
MARCH 25, 1996


MOTION
=======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to endorse the following 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.
