Faculty Council Minutes: March 2, 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 3:34 pm.
Agenda Item II: Approval of the Minutes for January 13, 2000 and February 3, 2000 (posted on web at http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/minutes/fc000113html.htm" and http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/minutes/fc000203html.htm). Langsam moved with McCarty’s second that the minutes of Jan. 13 and Feb. 3 be approved with no changes. Motion carried.
Agenda Item III: Chancellor's Report: Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor & IU Vice-President). As part of his report, Bepko called upon Vince Sheehan (UITS Director) to give some background on security measures and to address the recent computer attacks. Sheehan distributed a handout titled “Hackers” which explained the type of the recent attacks called “denial of service” attacks, which operate by hijacking computers (so as to keep the hackers’ identity and location hidden) and then initiating attacks on the servers of major websites (eg, Yahoo or CNN). IU has 47,000 network addressable systems, each of which could be hijacked or attacked. No system is 100% secure, but UITS network engineers do monitor the servers with both front end (detection) and back end (trace) software. Our best protection is the evaluation of all servers by system administrations to ensure security compliance and the auditing of all applications development by the security office. Sheehan closed by giving the URL website address for the security office for tools (http://www.itsoliu.edu) and for the security institute for information (http://www.sans.org).
Bepko then called upon Athletics Director Michael Moore to address how IUPUI avoids conflicts on interest in intercollegiate athletics, and also to comment upon IUPUI’s second year in Division One of the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association). Moore presented the background and some statistics to document IUPUI’s growth over the last four years. It had 4 female and 5 male athletic programs with 87 students, but we now have seven male and seven female programs with 227 athletes representing every undergraduate school with eighty-eight of those receiving full-scholarships (with 3.0 GPAs or better). IUPUI is recruiting better students and better athletes, and thus, better student athletes, and they are representing IUPUI well to the public. The NCAA peer review program, which is comparable to IUPUI’s accreditation by the NCA (North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools), recently fully certified IUPUI’s athletics programs, and it did his heart good to see IUPUI listed next to IUB, PU, and Texas A&M. Regarding the use of safeguards to ensure academic integrity of our athletics programs, Moore pointed out that the department’s compliance coordinator (Bret Shambaugh) reports to Mark Grove (Registrar) instead of himself, and that the academic advisors report to Scott Evenbeck (University College). This insulates the intercollegiate athletics department from any possible influence on decisions in those areas. He noted that his department pays University College for mentoring and tutoring programs for the athletes when they need it. Moore distributed a one-page handout listing the URL (http://www.iupui.edu/~comply) with links to information on compliance with the NCAA and to the athletics department in general. He closed saying that when flags are raised with regard to academic integrity both his department and the faculty need to evaluate their roles in the process – it’s a two-way street.
In response to a question from Spechler on finances, Moore said the department is not doing as well as they had hoped, but that the community, IU Foundation, and IUPUI are helping to subsidize the programs. In response to Fredland’s question on the size of the athletics budget and how much goes where from whom, Moore said most of the $2.7 million budget goes for salaries and scholarships, but he would have to return at a later meeting to present any details. Bepko added that the IUPUI money comes from auxiliary funds (not the state), and gave for an example the royalties (from the sale of athletic paraphernalia), which are not generating as much income as had been hoped. Bepko also noted that the football team from IUB will be playing a game in the RCA Dome here in Indianapolis this coming season to generate a greater fan base in central Indiana, an issue that is now brewing in IUB and creating quite a stir.
Bepko reported that some issue papers on the new Indiana Community College which were meant only for internal discussions have been circulated to ICHE (Indiana Commission for Higher Education) and representatives of the public universities. Several pernicious issues have been raised: whether any campus should award any more associate degrees, and whether all campuses should cease to offer any further remedial instruction. Both issues will likely die and be disposed of though.
Progress is being made on the development a new medical research building on Walnut Street which will be a mirror image of the Indiana Cancer Research Institute building, that is, the new building will be an exact copy of that building but will be flip flopped across the street to the other side. The Facilities Committee of the IU Trustees will be meeting in executive session to discuss the possibility of independent funding. We will likely hear more about this soon.
Also, the IU Foundation Board this month resolved to fund the IUPUI office building which will house the IU Foundation, the Alumni Association, the IU and PU offices, parts of the campus administration, the Center on Philanthropy, and others. This will not be a gift, but if we were to wait for state funding it would take much longer and might slow down some academic projects. Also, it will encourage the IU Foundation to become more involved with IUPUI and its campaign.
Speaking of the capital campaign, the first report to the community was given yesterday with the intent to get people talking about IUPUI and to hopefully see our vision for it and the role private support should play. The report was a variation of the State of the Campus message. It emphasized our transitions and highlighted our position as the center of gravity of higher education in Indiana. [With the help of Grove, Bepko then distributed copies of the report.] The front page of the handout shows the proposed logo for the campaign (the outline of Indiana with a circular mobius strip moving at one end through Indianapolis). The title of the campaign, “IUPUI: The Future is Here,” is meant to have a double meaning emphasizing the time of the “future” in one and the place of “here” in the other. The second page notes the campaign total to date ($240 million). The campaign will be publicly and officially announced on September 8, 2001. The leadership of the campaign, listed on the third page, and including Honorary Chairs Randall and Marianne Tobias, and Honorary Co-Chairs James Morris, Stephen Stitle, Jerry Semler, and Bill Mays, met this morning. The rest of the pages focus on the leadership of some of the individual schools: Chair August Watanabe and Co-Chairs Leonard Betley, Ron Dollens, Robert Everett, Kristin Fruehwald, and Jerry Throgmartin, for Medicine; Co-Chairs Malcolm Applegate, Elaine Bedel, Diane Brashear, Elizabeth Grossman, Glenn Irwin, Rebecca Markel, Rose Mays, Betty Stillwell, and Marjorie Tarplee, for Nursing; Co-Chair Anthony Heyworth, for Kelley Business; Honorary Chair Marianne Tobias, for Herron Art; Co-Chairs Scott Montross, Marilyn Quayle, Stephen Stitle, and John Wynne, for Law; Co-Chair Karl Kuehner and Honorary Co-Chair Bill Hunt, for Engineering and Technology; Honorary Co-Chair Elton Ridley, for Allied Health Sciences; and Co-Chair Patricia Rooney, for University Library.
Bepko finished his report on the campaign by reminding the FC members that next month’s meeting (FC000406) will include a presentation on the role the faculty should play in the campus campaign. It will include where we stand, what opportunities are available for faculty, and will encourage us to become envoys for the campaign and to show our community that we believe in ourselves. Bepko made a point of not declaring this a contest to beat IUB, since we have done that often enough anyway [laughter], but he noted that IUB did raise significant amounts among its faculty and staff, and added that we do in deed want to show how confident we are in our future.
Agenda Item IV: President's Report: Rebecca Porter (IUPUI Faculty President & UFC Co-Secretary). Porter reported that the Educational Policies Committee of the IU Board of Trustees endorsed our changes to our Review and Enhancement Policy last Friday. With the policy now in place, implementation will continue. At the initiation of Galanti, the FC applauded Porter’s excellent job working with the Trustees on this policy [applause].
Agenda Item V: Announcement of the Latest Version of the IUPUI Vision Statement and of the availability of the Self-study for Campus Climate Review (see http://www.planning.iupui.edu) -- Trudy Banta (Vice-Chancellor for Planning and Institutional Improvement) [INFORMATION ITEM]. Banta presented two items for the FC’s information and invited their participation. First, she outlined how the planning process, which began in 1994/95 with the deans, vice-chancellors, faculty, staff, and student leadership, resulted in the development of a set of five themes: student learning, responsibilities of excellence, centrality and community, collaboration, and accountability. After that, annual reports for schools and for the campus were organized around those themes. After the IU Strategic Directions Charter (SDI) appeared in January of 1996, we changed our wording to align the themes with IU’s goals: learning at the center of the campus mission, responsibilities of excellence, centrality and connections, collaboration, and accountability and best practices (Sep. 1996). It is now five or six years later, time to look again at our themes and think about our mission, especially given the impact of Indiana’s new community college system, and this was done this last Fall. Attached to your agenda is a draft of the proposed new vision and themes dated February 24, 2000. The vision of IUPUI remains “to be recognized as one of the best urban universities.” The themes or means of demonstrating the achievement of our vision have been reduced from five to three: effective student learning, excellent research and scholarship, and exemplary civic engagement (or our urban commitment). Each of these three themes or core activities is characterized by collaboration within and across disciplines, and pursuit of best practices (which earlier had been two separate themes). The three themes of our new vision are now aligned with SDI’s three principal components: communities of learning, responsibilities of excellence, and accountability and best practices. The rest of the attachment outlines what each theme is meant to encompass. Banta requested that the FC members look carefully at the document and let her office know of any suggested changes. Are these the right themes and is everything included? She also formally requested that the Academic Affairs and Student Affairs Committees report to her on the document, but especially the Campus Planning Committee. She stressed that this will be an ongoing process in work over the next few months.
Second, with regard to the “Campus Climate for Diversity Review: Campus Response,” which she distributed, Banta explained that for the past three years, Goldblatt, Warfel, and herself (along with many others) have been gathering data from IUPUI faculty, staff, and student surveys over the past three years. A self-study was organized, other campuses were compared, sub-groups were formed to study particular issues, and the problem of whom to invite to review the campus was explored. They also reviewed data from other universities and are now presenting the draft of an executive summary, along with a first page inviting responses or impressions (whether positive and/or negative) from members of the campus community (anonymous if desired) to be sent to Karen Black (AO 14) (email@example.com) by April 4th. Banta pointed out that the full text of this study will be available on the web after March 13th (http://www.planning.iupui.edu). On April 4th and 5th, two nationally-recognized external reviewers, Sylvia Hurtado (associate professor in the Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education at the University of Michigan) and Edgar Beckham (senior fellow at the Association for American Colleges and Universities), will visit the campus (having been sent the self-study in March), perform their diversity review, and report their recommendations to Chancellor Bepko’s Diversity Cabinet, who will decide next how to make improvements.
Banta then asked for questions or comments. Spechler recommended the inclusion of graduate programs, and Schmenner recommended the inclusion of effective teaching for the classroom. Galanti encouraged FC members to send in their responses or further comments.
Agenda Item VI: "Presentation of the Slate (distributed at meeting) for the Election of President and Vice-President of the Faculty" – Harriet Wilkins (Nominating Committee Acting Chair) [INFORMATION ITEM – VOTE IN APRIL]. Wilkins explained that the slates are not yet ready, but when the list is complete they will be emailed so the election will still occur at the April 6th FC meeting. She added that the at-large ballots have gone out but the Nominating Committee is concerned because not enough nominations were made by the faculty, so next Fall everyone needs to do more solicitation among their colleagues for participation and involvement.
Agenda Item VII: Second Presentation of Proposed Changes to the Constitution – Carl Rothe (Chair of the Constitution and Bylaws Committee) [DISCUSSION AND VOTE ITEM: ? Minutes]. Rothe reported that the committee considered the comments made at the previous meeting (FC000203), went over the new proposed amendments, and then requested that someone make a motion to approve the six amendments. He first noted that the sixth amendment under “f” mentions the “Faculty Grievance Mediation Committee” and requested in advance that the new name be exchanged here once it is settled and approved under agenda item VIII. The FC approved his request. Langsam then moved for the approval of the amendments. No second was necessary. The motion carried. Rothe explained the amendments will now be campusmailed to the entire voting faculty and that after thirty days ballots for approval will be sent to the entire voting faculty.
Agenda Item VIII: Presentation of Proposed Changes to Bylaw Article IV Regarding Faculty Grievance Procedures – Kathleen Warfel (Chair of the Task Force on Faculty Grievance Procedures). [DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE VOTE ITEM]. Warfel explained that the Task Force was charged by the Executive Committee last Spring and that they worked throughout the fall to investigate grievance issues regarding the Board of Review Pool and the Mediation Committee. To address these issues and to make the process smoother the Task Force met with several past faculty presidents, as well as with Dean Plater, Affirmative Action Officer Lillian Charleston, and Joseph Scodro from University Counsel. Their proposed changes are being presented at this meeting with the expectation of approval at the next (FC000406).
Warfel noted the new name for the Mediation Committee, the “IUPUI Faculty Grievance Advisory Panel,” and explained it is planned to be even more informal, with nothing written down, and with impartial consultants serving on an individual basis for either members of the faculty or the administration. The Boards of Review will continue to be formal. She explained that Bylaws Article IV.A.4.e was added to clarify that a review board is not to be thought of as a substitute for a promotion and tenure committee. The change from “three” to “four” at IV.E.1.c is intended to give the Executive Committee more flexibility. She noted the addition of IV.E.1.e may cause difficulty with regard to “supervisory authority over faculty” but encouraged debate. The addition of IV.E.2.c is intended to provide for the addition of new members if necessary. She also noted that the new “manual” referred to in IV.E.2.4 is being constructed by the Task Force and will be available. The changes in IV.F.1 mandate that the faculty member put into writing their request for a review and include the nature of the action involved as well as a concise summary of the grievance scenario. The additions under IV.F.2 focus on discrimination and sexual harassment and so were determined by the Affirmative Action Office. She noted that it is possible for the grievance to be treated by both a Board of Review and the Affirmative Action Office at the same time but one group will not be allowed to delay the other. Warfel pointed out that IV.G.1.a mandates a written document from the appropriate administrator also (as determined by the Dean of Faculties Office). She noted that IV.G.2.d limits the “members of the Law School faculty” to those “who have been designated as the IUPUI Board of Review consultants by the School of Law Executive Committee.” The addition to IV.G.4.a emphasizes that attorneys may not speak without permission, although a faculty member may if representing the grievant. The additions to IV.G.5 and IV.G.6 clarify the policy on confidentiality and the availability of listening to the recording of the meeting. The additions to IV.G.7 spell out the procedure if the grievant withdraws the grievance or voluntarily leaves the university. Warfel noted that although there are other minor changes, those are the key ones.
Referring to “qualifications” at IV.A.4.b, Spechler suggested the addition of language at IV.A.4.3 to the effect that review boards may consider procedural issues regarding promotion or tenure but not substantial ones. Porter commented that restrictive language might handicap the review board but guidelines from the manual spell out the propriety of checking the promotion and tenure process to ensure it was followed right. Besch supported Porter’s suggestion to limit any restrictive language.
Langsam noted a possible difficulty at IV.G.4.a in that the faculty member who represents the grievant may also be a lawyer. Galanti explained the intent is to prevent one’s private lawyers from running the meeting, and that this new language gives the chair the right to have them remain quiet if they get out of order. Warfel said the Task Force will look at it again.
Langsam also asked for clarification of the section at IV.E.1.e with regard to who has “supervisory authority over faculty.” For example, she has no supervisory authority over faculty but as an Associate Dean with authority over students she might be considered ineligible to serve on a review board due simply to her administrative title. Warfel said the Task Force will look at it.
McCarty questioned whether legal types should even be present (referring to IV.G.4.a) but Warfel replied it was a compromise.
Mannheimer asked when reports are available to the Executive Committee or other Review Boards, if ever. Warfel replied that the purpose of the Manual will be to extract lessons from the past and to pass on the accumulated wisdom in the correct way. The first version of this Book of Wisdom will come from the Task Force and go to the Executive Committee and the Dean of Faculties Office, and then each the President of the Faculty will improve upon it.
Warfel clarified for a member that the Review Board makes a recommendation to the Chancellor. Porter commented that the President of the Faculty follows up to make sure the Chancellor does what it was said would be done.
Galanti invited further comments be sent to Warfel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Agenda Item IX: Presentation of Proposed Changes to the Bylaws – Carl Rothe (Chair of the Constitution and Bylaws Committee) [DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE VOTE ITEM]. Rothe returned to the podium and explained that unlike the Constitution, the Bylaws can be amended at any time by a two-thirds vote of the Faculty Council members present for a regular meeting. The FC can adopt these changes today or they can wait until the next meeting. He then explained that most of these changes are to the standing committees and were initiated by the committees themselves. With regard to the Athletics Committee he explained that the sentence summarizes a five-page document and stresses the key point of a faculty majority. The new charge to the Campus Planning Committee came at their initiative. There are some small changes in the Student Affairs charge. The Technology Committee has been an Ad Hoc Committee for three years but the Executive Committee has now requested it become a standing committee. The attempt was made to clarify the charge to the Promotion and Tenure Committee with regard to the phrase “supervisory authority over faculty” which characterizes those who may not be members.
Mannheimer feared the “supervisory authority” clause might become confused with those in positions similar to Langsam’s and just pointed out. Whether Vessely (Dean of Students), who chairs the Promotion and Tenure Committee, should be permitted to serve also becomes questionable. Fore asked if her boss would be disqualified from serving. Galanti contended that anyone with an administrative rank should be excluded. Warfel distinguished unit promotion and tenure committees from campus promotion and tenure committees. Rothe questioned whether tenured librarians should be supervised to that extent, and if they are, suggested requesting a review board. Any further suggestions were to be emailed to Rothe at (email@example.com).
Agenda Item X: Second Consideration of “Emeritus Policy” – Karen Gable (Faculty Affairs Chair) [DISCUSSION AND VOTE ITEM]. Gable returned from the Faculty Affairs Committee with a second draft that took into consideration the directions made at the previous FC meeting (FC000203). She explained the latest changes, from the first sentence under “Eligibility” to the gender issue, to the final addition at the end that the title “may be rescinded.” No date of implementation had been placed on the document yet. Saatkamp commented that any implementation of the policy should be considerate to those units already preparing to bestow the title on some retiring faculty member and so should not demand any immediate effects.
Vermette spoke against adopting the policy at all, charging it is cruel to deny the status of emeritus to anyone after twenty of service, and claiming the policy is discriminatory against females who do most of the service. The policy also takes away the prerogative of the schools to reward faculty in this manner, and those faculty members who are denied this will not be donating any money to the campaign.
Spechler spoke in favor of the policy for some of the same reasons raised by Vermette. The policy does not discriminate against those who emphasize service over research and it does not discriminate against females, but he does object to promotions accomplished by administrators and not through the P&T route, which is implied in the final sentence under “Eligibility.” Galanti asked Gable to return the policy to the Faculty Affairs Committee and to add an effective date among the other considerations. Further comments were to be directed to Gable (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Agenda Item XI-XIV: Question / Answer Period, Unfinished or New Business, and Adjournment. There were no questions, and no unfinished or new business, so Galanti adjourned the meeting with McCarty motion and Mannheimer’s second at 5:25 pm.
