MOTION
======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section 3 (Article V:  
Committees, Permanent) of the Bylaws by adding E.9. (Steering 
Committee, Bachelor of Arts and Sciences Degree Program).

PERMANENT

9. 	The BAS Steering Committee is responsible for overseeing the 
	BAS degree program.  Specific duties of the Committee include:  
	1) evaluating proposals for including or deleting courses within 
	the BAS degree and making recommendations to the CLA 
	Academic Council and the Faculty Senate; 2) developing and 
	evaluating procedures for advising BAS majors; 3) developing 
	and assessing the BAS degree program.  The Committee is 
	responsible for establishing procedures for selecting the BAS 
	coordinator and will select the coordinator for a 2-year term.

	The committee shall be composed of one faculty member elected 
	from each of the following units:  (CLA, CSEM, SOEd, CRA); one 
	faculty member appointed by Faculty Senate; one representative 
	from the Advising Center; the BAS coordinator; and the CLA 
	dean or dean designee as an ex officio member.  

	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:  	The BAS Degree Program consists of courses 
		offered within different schools and colleges at UAF.  
		Creating the Steering Committee as a Permanent 
		Committee of the Faculty Senate retains faculty 
		oversight of the degree program while at the same time 
		providing logistical support and means of accountability.

Proposed Amendment by Ron Gatterdam:

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section 3 (Article V:  
Committees, A.) of the Bylaws as follows.

CAPS  = 	Additions

A.	An Administrative Committee will be composed of the chairpersons 
	of all standing Senate Committees and of permanent Senate 
	committees except the University-wide Promotion and Tenure 
	Committee, [[and]] the Committee to Nominate Commencement 
	Speakers and Honorary Degree Recipients, AND THE BAS STEERING 
	COMMITTEE.  

	RATIONALE:  	It would be inappropriate for the Bachelor of 
		Arts and Science Degree Program to have a seat on the 
		Administrative Committee where other degree programs 
		do not.

RESOLUTION
==========

BE IT RESOLVED, That the UAF Faculty Senate ratifies the election of 
President-Elect on the basis of the following ballot.


					BALLOT
				PRESIDENT-ELECT


Please vote for ONE individual to serve as the President-Elect of the UAF 
Faculty Senate for 1999-00.

PERSONAL STATEMENT:

I accept the nomination from my fellow Senators to the position of 
President-Elect of the UAF Faculty Senate.  As most of you who know of 
my university service at UAF may attest, I hold a strong commitment in 
principle and in practice to shared governance and, thus, to an equitable 
role for faculty in this process.  As you all know, we are currently hard at 
work preparing for institutional accreditation review, and so it is with a 
combination of commitment and reserve that I would accept the 
responsibility of office at this time of institutional self-examination.  I 
hope that my performance as President-Elect and then as President will 
correspond to the trust you place in me as we work together to meet our 
responsibilities over the next two academic years.  My thanks in advance 
for your confidence and support.

Norm Swazo

Minutes,  March 6, 2000


Present:  Sukumar Bandopadhyay, Carol Barnhardt, Ron Illingworth, Judy
Shepherd, Ann Tremarello,, Wanda Martin,  Chris Hartman, Ed Murphy for
Dave Woodall,  Dolly Garza,  Katrina Klassen, Charlotte Basham (chair)
Guest:  Carone Sturm, Director, Center for Distance Education and
Independent Learning

1. Dual enrollment policy:  We reviewed the Chancellor's suggested 
changes to the policy which was approved in Faculty Senate.  We 
understand by accepting this change that exceptions can be made as 
appropriate by those reviewing student applications.  We also recommend 
changing the beginning phrase to "any HIGH SCHOOL student."

2.  Discussion on distance delivery issues:  We had read the letter sent to 
President Hamilton by Ron Gatterdam and Charlotte Basham's report on 
the Juneau meeting.   Carone Sturm discussed the role of CDE in 
developing courses for distance delivery.  Ron Illingworth discussed how 
courses are approved within CRA.  He suggested that the mode of 
delivery be included as part of the course approval process.  The question 
was raised whether there is a difference between face-to-face and 
distance delivery in terms of approving instructors.  Carone said they are 
developing standards for Blackboard courses as well as providing 
examples of good web-based courses.  There is a need to better define 
the relationship between CDE and other departments, especially in terms 
of who pays to develop a distance-delivered course and how is that 
course evaluated.  Some departments are offering their own courses via 
the Web.  Should there be any coordination or oversight of these 
courses?  Another issue that was raised was the restriction on the 
number of correspondence credits that can be used toward a degree (15 
for AA; 32 for BA).  How do we count Web-based courses?

Possible Action items:
a)  revise the course approval form to include mode of delivery (?)
b)  check Regents' policy to confirm limitation on counting 
correspondence/distance delivered courses.
c)  revise the requirement that students spend a year in residence.  (It 
was stated that NW Accreditation is in the process of eliminating that 
requirement)
d)  clearly define "correspondence" vs. "technology-based modes of 
delivery" (TBMD).
e)  develop a manual for faculty wanting to use TBMD, which would 
include a list of people to turn to for help.

3.  Bachelor of Business Administration degree requirements
-reduces number of credits from 91-92  to 82-85
-deletes requirement that the minor be selected outside of the School of 
Management

Approved sending forward a motion to Faculty Senate to amend the 
degree requirements.

Wanda Martin,  Chris Hartman, Trina Mamoon, Ed Murphy for Dave 
Woodall, Charlotte Basham (chair)
Guest:  Michelle Stalder, Assistant to Director, TVC


1.  Dual enrollment policy:  The Chancellor has approved changes in the 
dual enrollment policy, but he deleted the specific wording about 
students who do not meet the stated GPA requirements.   With this 
change Ron Gatterdam had questioned whether the statement was 
needed.  According to Michelle Stalder, the original intent from TVC was 
to specify the approval process.  
Action:  We recommend asking the Chancellor to accept a minor change 
in order of presentation in the catalog and a minor change in wording to 
what has already been approved.

2.  Prerequisite check:  Ann Tremarello reported that she expects to be 
able to download the information from the new catalog and have the 
paperwork ready by the end of April.

3.  BAS Steering Committee:  We approved sending forward the following 
recommendation to Faculty Senate for approval

MOTION

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend Section 3 (Article V:

assessing the BAS degree program.  The Committee is responsible for 
establishing procedures for selecting the BAS coordinator and will select 
the coordinator for a 2-year term.

The committee shall be composed of one faculty member elected from 
each of the following units: (CLA, CSEM, SOEd, CRA); one faculty member 
appointed by Faculty Senate; one representative from the Advising 
Center; the BAS coordinator; and the CLA dean or dean designee as an ex

Meeting of February 28, 2000

Present:  James Gardner (Chair), Harikumar Sankaran, Vikas Sonwalkar, 
Gayle Gregory, Dennis Stephens, and a graduate student representative 
for Hilary Fletcher.

The committee interviewed Ray Barnhardt concerning the proposal for 
creation of the M.A. degree in Cross-cultural studies.  The committee 
made recommendations for improving the proposal, to be submitted to 
the Graduate School.

The committee approved a draft document to be sent to all Department 
Heads soliciting their input on the uses of stacked courses, in regard to 
graduate courses and the dilution of those courses with undergraduate 
course work.

The committee approved an agenda item requesting that all Departments 
submit a request for inclusion of GRE and GMAT scores in their catalog 
descriptions.  This item was added to the Agenda of the Faculty Senate 
Meeting #93.

The committee reviewed agenda items concerning 1) the restriction of 
outside employment of graduate students receiving full-time Teaching 
Assistantships, and 2) the change in transcript requirements for graduate 
admission.

No other business was discussed and the committee adjourned.
