Faculty Council Minutes: February 3, 2000

Dental School Building, Room 115: 3:30 - 5:30 p.m.


Attendance Record and Original Agenda follow Adjournment as Attachments.


Agenda Item I: Call to Order: Paul Galanti (IUPUI Faculty Vice-President)! Galanti called the meeting to order at 3:35, noted that a quorum (of at least 55) was present, and announced that President Porter was unavoidably absent due to her necessary presence at a professional meeting in New Orleans (American Physical Therapy Association), as a Treasurer trying to explain a budget deficit to the Executive Committee. [Laughter.]


Agenda Item II: Update on Minutes for January 13, 2000 (distributed via email and posted on web at http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/minutes/fc000113html.htm" when ready). Galanti reported that the January minutes were complete but not yet through the editing process. They will be emailed and posted when ready, and approved at the March meeting.


Agenda Item III: Chancellor's Report: Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor & IU Vice-President). Bepko called upon Robert Martin (Vice-Chancellor Administration and Finance) to address the issue raised the previous meeting (FC000113) concerning the direct deposit of monthly paychecks for January 1st of 2000. Martin reported that the normal distribution of payroll for January has always been the first working day of the new year (January 3rd in this case) so that it becomes part of the new year’s earnings (2000 in this case) and not the previous year’s (1999). Deans, directors, and departments are notified in December that this will occur. In any other case besides January, if the first falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the payroll is posted on the previous Friday. This is not permitted in the case of January because the earnings would be reflected for the wrong year. So, proper procedures were followed, and notice was given in the Jagnews. Saatkamp commented that the problem was with the banks which made some individuals pay penalties. Martin responded that the university did its job right but that it can’t dictate to the banks so the problem was out of their hands.


Bepko reported on some changes to the landscape of the campus. The grand opening of the new building that will house the new Herron Sculpture and Ceramics Facility on Stadium Drive (the best in the world of its kind) was last night (Goodine and Mannheimer were there). It represents the first step in moving the Herron School of Art onto the campus. Everyone was strongly encouraged to stop by and check out for themselves the magnificence of the building (inside and outside). The Herron faculty were congratulated. Jonathan Hess, a well known Indianapolis based architect, has been put under contract to do the redesign of the [old law school] building for the Herron School of Art to move into. We expect from him a dramatic architectural statement for two reasons: first, so that the newly redesigned building can become part of the Arts and Culture Corridor and be seen as equal in grandeur to the new buildings of the Historical Society, the Eiteljorg Museum, the State Museum, and the NCAA facilities, but also so that no one will be tempted to refer to it as the old law school building. Referring to IUPUI as “ooey-pooey” or to the new Herron School of Art facility as the “old law school building” will be strictly prohibited as politically incorrect. [Laughter.]


ICHE (Indiana Commission for Higher Education) met here on campus a couple of weeks ago and approved the new Technology Complex to be built at the southwest corner of the intersection of Michigan and West Streets. Construction of the Center for Young Children (earlier known as the Child Care Center) is underway with a Fall 2000 opening anticipated. Progress is being made on the new Student Center (advertised as Project 2000), at the southwest corner of the intersection of Michigan Street and University Boulevard, as well as on the new Student Housing, with RFPs (Requests for Proposals) for it hopefully issued sometime in March.


Planning sessions for the budget are now underway and will be ongoing throughout February. The process is about a quarter complete and includes working with the FC Budgetary Affairs and Campus Planning Committees.


A new tradition was begun. As stated in the “State of the Campus” address in December, the Chancellor presented the “State of Diversity” message on Martin Luther King Jr. day (January 17th). The diversity message addresses the creation of the new Diversity Cabinet [Chair Gerald Bepko (Chancellor), Vice Chair Lillian Charleston (Affirmative Action Officer), Vice Chair Paula Parker-Sawyers (Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Diversity), Amelia Clark (Student Life and Diversity Programs), Paul Galanti (Law), Sam Jones (Indianapolis Urban League President), Louis Lopez (Public Policy and Community Response Director), Angela McBride (Nursing Dean), Lynda Means (Medicine Assistant Dean), Charlie Nelms (IU Vice President for Student Development and Diversity), William Plater (Executive Vice Chancellor and Dean of the Faculties), Ellen Poffenberger (Assistant Vice Chancellor for Human Resources), Kimberly Quaid (Office of Women Director), Herman Saatkamp (Liberal Arts Dean), William Shrewsberry Jr. (Indianapolis Deputy Mayor), Sheldon Siegel (Social Work Interim Dean), Brent Wake (Black Student Union), and Karen Whitney (Vice Chancellor for Student Life and Diversity]. A few copies of “IUPUI: State of Diversity” (which includes the message and the cabinet members) were made available for distribution.


Yesterday (Feb 2), a session was held of the Campus Board of Advisors, and even though the “State of the Campus” address was given December 2nd, the board suggested they host a “Public State of the Campus” address by the Chancellor at their March 1st regular meeting (IUPUI Conference Center), inviting the Boards of Advisors of all the schools at IUPUI. All of the public bodies that are part of the constellation that is IUPUI, as well as the constellation of all the external groups that convene to help and advise IUPUI, will be invited also. The Campus Board of Advisors also suggested an annual public address for each year of the Campaign for IUPUI, beginning with 2000, as a means of reporting to the community, even though the public phase of the campaign will not be announced for another twenty months. It will be a way of inviting the university community and the public to think about the degree to which private support should be a part of the plan for this campus in the future, and to encourage public support for the campaign, the early successes of which have already been reported. For an update from the IU Foundation on the “Campaign for IUPUI” including new gift income plus the continuing public support, $119 million have been raised as of the end of June 1999, while as of the end of December 1999 $222 million have accumulated. Everyone involved is encouraged that the goal may be raised even higher than we had anticipated.


Bepko responded to Spechler’s question of the impact of Herron’s move on campus parking, first by noting that the campus is striving for parking equilibrium with some new surface parking created and two new garages being planned (one holding 1000 vehicles at the northwest corner of the intersection of Michigan and Blackford Streets, across from the Mary Cable Building, and another underground one holding 800 vehicles in roughly the middle of the superblock bounded by New York, West, Michigan, and Blackford Streets), and second by calling on our parking czar, Bob Martin, who added that with the two garages a net gain of 700 parking spots is expected. Bepko then noted that first priority has been given on the capital list for the 2001 Indiana General Assembly to the construction of the Communications Technology Complex building. Plans for this are going forward because we have the funds for the planning, and phase two, the demolition and replacement of the Mary Cable Building, will be able to begin right away if the Assembly funds it. He expressed hope of strolling one afternoon in about 2003 to watch its demolition, finally. [Applause.] Returning to Spechler’s topic, Bepko noted that as our parking generally moves from inexpensive surface parking to expensive garage or underground parking, our discussion needs to turn to the convenience of the students of the 21st century urban campus with an assurance they can get here and park, especially given the likely future of the state of transit in Indianapolis. If we are to be a student-friendly campus, then the state of Indiana should assist with the financing, instead of following the old policy of insisting that IU always pay for its own parking arrangements.


Agenda Item IV: President's Report: Paul Galanti (IUPUI Faculty Vice-President, representing Rebecca Porter, IUPUI Faculty President). Reporting for Porter, Galanti told the FC to anticipate for March the report from the Grievance Task Force (chaired by Warfel) which will be recommending substantial Bylaws changes. The Task Force is also developing a handbook to facilitate the functioning of Boards of Review.


The Indianapolis Star newspaper reported a change in the IU admissions policy (meaning IUB’s), which now requires students to disclose past criminal or disciplinary history. A new statement has been added to the IUB admission applications. The UFC (University Faculty Council) will deal with this primarily but our Academic Affairs Committee is also looking at the wording and its implications.


The UFC will meet next week (Feb 8) at IUB. Four items on the agenda are worth noting. First, Judith Palmer (IU Chief Financial Officer) will present an update on the 18/20 plan and inform UFC members of the status of the actions being taken to address its financial drain. Second, the Co-Chairs of the UFC Faculty Affairs Committee (Karen Gable and Ted Miller) will present information which Gable will preview for the FC later in this meeting. Third and fourth, the Co-Chairs of the UFC Affirmative Action Committee (Paul Eisenberg and Gail Williamson) will present a “Statement on Civility” based on Chancellor Bepko’s earlier statement, as well as a “Policy on Accommodations for Religious Observances” which formalizes the practice of accommodation for students. Copies of each of these were provided at the back of the room. If the UFC adopts the latter policy IUPUI will need to create and implement its own campus procedures.


Porter hopes to announce at FC000302 that the IU Trustees accepted IUPUI’s “Review and Enhancement Document” and the changes made in dismissal procedures at their February 24th meeting here on campus. The faculty and librarians of each academic unit should be working with their deans to make the appropriate changes in procedures, especially as to defining what constitutes “unsatisfactory performance.” Galanti then requested, in Porter’s name, any tough probing questions.


In response to Spechler’s question referring to a memo to the deans from Executive Vice-Chancellor Plater, and regarding the possible outcome of a hypothetical refusal of the faculty of an academic unit to comply with Dean Plater’s mandatory revisions in a school’s policy for implementing post-tenure review, Galanti acknowledged the importance of Spechler’s scenario, but stated that such a decision to question a standard coming from Plater’s office would become an administrative matter but would not stop this process, which he noted began a number of years ago at the concern of the faculty to help prompt needy colleagues. Given Plater’s absence (who with his growing national reputation for his publications was also out of state attending the American Association for Higher Education to speak on national service and service learning), Bepko volunteered to comment for him and suggested that if a problem emerged such that some patterns conflicted with the implementation then the administration and faculty would likely talk and find some means of accommodation. He noted that the implementation will probably create some conflict, while stressing that the intention is not to revolutionize what has already been working well, but contended the process has been well-crafted so as to focus on faculty development and to create and sustain conditions of collegiality, accommodating the problems that have been seen before with review mechanisms, but helping those who have possibly drifted but who welcome the assistance to rise to higher levels.


Agenda Item V: "Election of Faculty Board of Review Pool" -- Mary Fisher (Nominating Committee Acting Chair) (ballots distributed at meeting) [ACTION ITEM]. Wilkins, returning as Nominating Committee Chair, distributed the ballots to elect ten of the fifteen nominees, and then collected them assisted by Ng. Sixty-three ballots were cast and the following ten individuals were elected to the Board of Review Pool for the term February 1, 2000 through January 31, 2002: Michael Burke, Gayle Cox, Naomi Fineberg, Karen Gable, Vania Goodwin, Florence Juillerat, B. Keith Moore, Judith Richter, Patricia Wittberg, and Enid Zwirn. Wilkins then moved with Langsam’s second that the ballots be destroyed and the tally sheet kept in the Faculty Council Office. Motion carried.


Agenda Item VI: Presentation of Proposed Changes to the Constitution – Carl Rothe (Chair of the Constitution and Bylaws Committee) [INFORMATION AND DISCUSSION ITEM: 25 Minutes]. Rothe presented the proposed changes to the Constitution of the IUPUI Faculty, aiming for a vote of approval at FC000302 because 50 days are necessary after that for approval by the faculty body before the changes may be implemented. Using the attached flow chart Rothe explained the overall amendment process with an eye to ensuring the vote of those with only ten month appointments. He noted that changes in the Bylaws need to be approved only by the FC and not the entire faculty body. Rothe explained the details of each change and opened the floor for discussion while so doing.


In response to Langsam’s question of why four weeks are necessary to get the approval of the faculty body, Rothe said that allows for about one week to get the proposed amendments in campusmail, one week to get it to the entire faculty body, one week for them to get it back in the campusmail, and one week for it to arrive back at the Faculty Council Office. In response to Langsam’s suggestion that Article VI.B.4 be switched in order with VI.B.3 Rothe said the idea looked good and he would take it and the considerable other suggestions back to the Constitution and Bylaws Committee for their consideration. Some discussion ensued on when precisely the academic year ends. Langsam suggested it is commencement (on Mother’s Day). Fore suggested always attempting to keep the wording very general and not specific so the necessity to amend the constitution is kept to a minimum. Some discussion ensued on the changes proposed with regard to FC members sending alternates to the meetings. Rothe noted the principle behind the changes is to permit no more than one vote to any one person present at the meeting. Considerable discussion ensued around the topic of faculty who also have administrative appointments after Rothe explained the proposed changes on eligibility for the Executive Committee (due to the need to expand the pool from which to draw). Rothe emphasized the importance of the Executive Committee: it sets the agenda for the FC, appoints members to the standing committees, constitutes boards of review, and advises the administration, among other things. The question was raised about the precise definition of an administrative appointment, what it includes and does not include [President (IRKX), Vice-President (IRQX), Associate Vice-President (IRSX), Assistant Vice-President (IRHX), Chancellor (IRCX), Vice-Chancellor (IRDX), Associate Vice-Chancellor (IRGX), Assistant Vice-Chancellor (IRHX), Dean (IR1X), Associate Dean (IR2X), Assistant Dean (IR3X), Chair (IR4X), and Director (IR5X)]. Mannheimer commented on the evolving nuances between the “academic” and the “administrative” but stressed that certain individuals with administrative appointments should not be passing judgments on or speaking for the faculty. Warfel suggested doing without the language and letting the Nominating Committee use their best judgment, which Rothe also supported. Both Saatkamp and McBride spoke against the use of “full-time” at Article IV.F.2. McBride spoke of the need for administrators who never lose sight of the importance of faculty responsibilities. Besch reiterated the need to expand the pool from which to draw potential candidates.


Before closing, Rothe noted that the changes in the Bylaws that will be proposed at the next FC meeting, including some from the Grievance Task Force (chaired by Warfel) and others regarding the Athletics and Campus Planning Committees, might involve changes in names (eg, the name of the Mediation Committee) that will in turn require changes in the Constitution for the sake of consistency. He requested and received agreement from the FC that the Constitution automatically reflect those changes without the need for further approval.


Agenda Item VII: “Emeritus Policy” – Karen Gable (Faculty Affairs Chair) [DISCUSSION AND VOTE ITEM: 15 Minutes]. Gable stated that no policy on emeritus faculty currently existed and that the use of the title is inconsistent across the schools. The Faculty Affairs Committee gathered information on the use of the title from universities across the nation and now unanimously supported this policy. She then read portions of the proposed policy and made a few comments before opening the topic for discussion.


Meiss suggested item three under eligibility reflect the notion of contributions to “and/or on behalf of” the university, to which Gable agreed, and pointed to potential conflicts with the prohibition from receiving grant monies. McBride added that the prohibition amounts to shooting ourselves in the foot, and contended we should not let the emeritus status interfere with bringing in grant monies. Rhodes noted that once one receives the title and subsequently becomes independent they can walk away. He also expressed concern over the possibility that an emeritus faculty member could hold a chair. Gable commented that what they had in mind were exceptional cases. Bepko commented that if a faculty member retires, his department is free to utilize them as long as 18/20 is not violated, and spoke against any policy regulating that privilege regardless of the emeritus policy. He added that the list of privileges is unclear because some are already rights. In anticipation of problematic cases, Warfel held new wording is necessary to remove the ambivalence between privileges and rights. Saatkamp suggested adding “as along as not in conflict with retirement plans” and asked if those who have already received the title would be grandfathered. Gable affirmed they would. As one working on 18/20 through UFC, Besch confirmed a problem exists. Bepko added that another problem exists under eligibility with regard to the phrase “eligible to end their academic employment” because one is always so eligible. N. Fineberg pointed out that faculty and staff retirees already receive network privileges. Schmenner suggested adding the power to revoke the title. Saatkamp suggested adding a “date effective” to the policy to exclude those already retiring this year. Galanti closed the discussion with no consideration of a vote. He told Gable to take the proposed policy back to the committee for reworking and to return again at the March meeting questing approval. At her request, the FC confirmed for Gable that the committee is headed in the right direction. She agreed to return for the next meeting with a new version and thanked everyone for their many suggestions and insights.


Agenda Item VIII: Update on (UFC) Classification of Academic Personnel and Polices on NTTF (Non-Tenure-Track Faculty) – Karen Gable (UFC Faculty Affairs Co-Chair) [INFORMATION AND DISCUSSION ITEM: 10 Minutes]. Maintaining the podium, Gable stated that this next issue is a serious concern. Using the overhead, she referred to the latest draft of a taxonomy (also distributed at the meeting) that classified all of the academic appointments and titles including the new ones that the UFC Faculty Affairs Committee will be suggesting for adoption. Giving a quick overview, she explained there are “tenure-track” (I.), “non-tenure-track” (II.), and “honorary” appointments (III.). The committee will not be suggesting any changes to tenure-track or honorary appointments (I. or III. ). Under the category of non-tenure-track appointments (II), there are “lecturer” (A), “clinical” (B), “acting, visiting, and adjunct” (C.1-3), “research” (D), “specialists” (E), and “student” (F) appointments. The committee will primarily be suggesting the use of the “A” and “C” categories, “A” referring to lecturers, or, at the option of the school, senior lecturers, and “C” referring to those who are (1) “acting” (less than two years), (2) “visiting” (less than two years), or (3) “adjunct” (those who are principally employed elsewhere (3.a), those employed principally by the university but for whom teaching is not an appropriate responsibility (3.b), or those who are faculty from another unit but who deserve a courtesy appointment in a second (3.c)). Before opening the floor for discussion, Gable added that the intent of the suggested classification was to create a framework usable by all of IU, or at least adaptable to each campus.


Goodine pointed out a case not covered by the taxonomy (½ administrative and ½ adjunct). Gable agreed to have the committee address the case. Meiss drew the conclusion that non-tenure-track faculty per se will no longer exist. Gable agreed to have the committee consider that conclusion. Rothe noted there are about 150 researchers (scientists or scholars) who have no guarantee of employment. Warfel confirmed that group (IR94-IR97) also needs help but suggested the classification needs acceptance first. Gable confirmed for Rothe that part-time assistant professors will be phased out and that “part-time” will become merely a descriptive term. Discussion ensued on the possibility of non-tenure-track part-time assistant professors. Warfel noted this new classification make it possible to have a tenured probationary assistant professor who is not eligible for the FC. Vermette noted that what have been called Graduate School Teaching Assistants are called Student Appointments in this document. Harrington noted a possible problem with adjunct appointments in the interdisciplinary programs. Gable admitted more need of polishing, especially as concerns participation in faculty governance. She noted the document comes before the UFC next Tuesday (Feb 8) for discussion and possibly for an acceptance in principle. Comments sent to Sara Hook, Joyce Martin, Kathleen Warfel, or herself were welcomed and would be appreciated.


Agenda Item IX: Question / Answer Period. Responding to a question sent by email concerning the reason our bookstores charge sales tax, Bepko stated the law can’t have Follet’s charging but not us.


Agenda Items X-XII: Unfinished or New Business and Adjournment. Wondering whether the agenda should include an item on “things in the works” as it once did, and hearing no new business, Galanti adjourned the meeting at 5:25 pm.
