Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis

Faculty Council Minutes: April 6, 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 pm and announced that after the minutes were approved the order of business for the day would begin with agenda item ten and work backwards since the Chancellor’s arrival had been delayed.

 

Agenda Item II: Approval of the Minutes for March 2, 2000 (posted on the web at http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/minutes/fc000302html.htm . With no changes or objections the minutes were accepted.

 

Agenda Item X: IUPUI Campus Campaign – Ed Robbins (Senior Academy Chair), accompanied by Glenn Bosch (IU Foundation: Director of Annual Giving, IUPUI) and John Sloan (IU Foundation: Executive Director of Capital Campaigns, Indianapolis) [INFORMATION ITEM: 5 Minute Limit]. As a member of the steering committee for the Campus Campaign 2000, Robbins thanked the FC for the opportunity to meet with them again and told everyone to watch for their personalized announcement which was campusmailed yesterday after Chancellor Bepko officially kicked off the campaign. Robbins stated that his purpose today was to encourage faculty support and participation in anticipation of next year’s IUPUI Comprehensive Campaign which will call for support from the broader community. To get the high percentage of community players that we want we must first show a very high percentage of faculty and staff supporting the campaign. A high level of faculty enthusiasm will increase that community support significantly. Besides an increase in the percentage of support, the aim this year also calls for an increase in the level of support. Priorities are being established for each of the school or unit campaigns. Each supporter will have over 900 accounts from which to choose to direct their pledge. Also, for the first time, multi-year pledges from three to five years will be possible and they will have a multiplier effect on the campaign. Speaking from personal example, Robbins told that he has given modestly in the past but that now with the multi-year pledge his support presents a more impressive picture even though each individual year still represents a modest sum. A bonus for agreeing to the multi-year pledge is that one won’t be solicited during those extra two to four years. With no questions, Galanti thanked Robbins and Bosch for their presentation and encouraged all FC members to take the request to heart.

 

Agenda Item IX: Update on the New Student Center – Karen Whitney (Vice-Chancellor for Student Life and Diversity) [INFORMATION AND DISCUSSION ITEM: 15 Minute Limit]. Whitney distributed a nine page handout titled “IUPUI Campus Center: Building Program Report Executive Summary” and thanked the FC for the opportunity to present an update of the plan which has been in the works for a decade. The comprehensive report, of which the handout is the executive summary, is about three hundred pages. As she told the members of the IUPUI student government last week when she briefed them on the center, anyone with a question or comment is strongly encouraged to address it to her (whitney@iupui.edu).

 

Whitney explained that the new student or campus center is really three projects rolled up into one. The building will be very big and comprehensive, larger than Cavanaugh Hall. Although still in the development phase, the Bowers Building at the southwest corner of the Michigan Street and University Boulevard intersection is scheduled for demolition next summer. At a cost of $54 million, the plan is today on schedule and it will take two years to construct with an opening planned for the fall of 2003. There are weekly meetings with the university architect’s office and Robert Stern’s firm (who is also responsible for the new Law School building). The three parts of the center will be the Student Activity Spaces, the Student Academic Spaces, and the Student Auxiliary Services Spaces. The center is so large it will feel like being at a mall or an airport. Everyone there will for the most part be in transit to or away from the center. Plans for now call for the center to be open eighteen hours a day with access to computer labs offered twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. The center is so large that traffic patterns in the area will be impacted. The first two levels of the University College building will move into the center. The sources for financing the center will be complex including the students (through the student activity fee), the university (through rent from the auxiliary services such as the bookstore), the commercial community (through rent from non-institutional enterprises such as the food court), the private sector (through gifts), and hopefully the state (through some legislative funding).

 

Then welcoming questions, Whitney called for help from Vice-Chancellor Robert Martin to respond to Spechler’s question whether enough profit will be generated to offset the losses that other buildings like University College and the Hotel / Conference Center will have due to the move of their food facilities into the new center. Martin commented that the intent has always been for the privatized food services to move into the new student or campus center once it is finished, and confirmed for Spechler that Marriott Corporation (Hotel / Conference Center) will sustain its business and there will be no overall deficit of money. Whitney added that eating and parking at universities is always complex and tricky. [Laughter] She added that Scott Evenbeck is patiently waiting to free up that space. Responding to a question about the impact on parking, Whitney noted that the vicinity of the Bowers Building now includes about 200 parking spaces that will be lost. Martin added that the campus plan calls for the construction of another parking garage with 1200 spaces at the northwest corner of the intersection of Michigan and Blackford Streets for a net of almost a thousand spaces, as well as an expansion up of the north garage (east of the Conference Center). Vessely commented that for many years now 200 or so spaces are being lost somewhere due to construction only to be regained when the construction is completed but lost again when further construction begins. Galanti thanked Whitney for coming and invited her to return for another update next year.

 

Agenda Item VIII: Announcement of Election Results for UFC (University Faculty Council – system-wide) Representatives (from IUPUI), for the term July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2002 -- Rebecca Porter (IUPUI Faculty President and UFC Co-Secretary) [INFORMATION ITEM]. Porter drew attention to the third attachment listing the new UFC members for 2000-02 and expressed delight at their being chosen to represent IUPUI. Those chosen include: Simon Atkinson (Medicine: Medicine: Nephrology), Henry Besch (Medicine: Pharmacology and Toxicology), Janice Froehlich (Medicine: Medicine: Physiology), Anna McDaniel (Nursing), Rebecca Porter (Allied Health Sciences: Physical Therapy), Martin Spechler (Liberal Arts: Economics), and Richard Ward (Liberal Arts: Anthropology). Porter thanked all the candidates for their participation and noted that those not elected may still be called upon to fill vacancies.

 

Agenda Item III: Chancellor's Report: Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor & IU Vice-President). Bepko referred to yesterday’s announcement in the Star by Governor O’Bannon of the official opening this coming fall of the Indiana Community College which will be accompanied by a radio and newspaper marketing campaign. IU and IUPUI support the Community College Initiative and will work with Ivy Tech to help it grow and function as a community college, relieving IUPUI of that part of its mission and focus, but during this transition we will need to make some issues stand front and center with the public, namely the constraints placed on us by the ICHE (Indiana Commission for Higher Education) and its reluctance to approve and even opposition to any new graduate programs on our campus, as well as their reluctance or refusal to properly fund IUPUI’s general academic programs.

 

Bepko reported that while coming to the meeting he heard that next month’s issue of Yahoo magazine will list IUB as fourth in the nation with regard to providing information technology for its students and IUPUI as forty-sixth, but that we’ll likely move up when our campus student center opens with access twenty-four hours a day seven days a week.

 

Agenda Item IV: President's Report: Rebecca Porter (IUPUI Faculty President & UFC Co-Secretary). Porter reported that the UFC at its last meeting (UFC000328) passed a policy on Accommodations for Religious Observances (http://www.indiana.edu/~ufc/circulars/99-00/U8-2000.htm ) which IUPUI will now need to consider how to implement. The UFC also passed a policy on Conflict of Interest (http://www.indiana.edu/~ufc/circulars/99-00/U9-2000.htm ) with only one change: “not less than one day per week” was changed to “one day per week.” Also introduced at that meeting was a draft of a proposal for ICTs (Inter-Campus Transfers) (http://www.indiana.edu/~ufc/circulars/99-00/U11-2000.htm ) but that will be raised for discussion under new business today. At its April meeting (UFC000425) the UFC plans to adopt the proposal for ICTs and to discuss the ongoing issue of Non-Tenure Track Appointments (http://www.indiana.edu/~ufc/circulars/99-00/U10-2000.htm ).

 

The IU Board of Trustees met (March 30-31) and called for reports from us on inter-campus transfers. Students must be able to transfer their work to other campuses. The Trustees also discussed low-enrolling courses and seldom-used degrees.

 

Porter urged everyone to please complete and return the faculty surveys they should have received (which are conducted every other year). She also noted that flyers were available at the back announcing a joint IUB/IUPUI symposium entitled “Evolving Faculty Awards” and urged participation. Given that the frequency of publications published electronically is increasing, the issues are relevant. Those who register early receive a free lunch, and the Chronicle of Higher Education  will be present to cover the symposium. She also noted that other flyers from the IU Foundation are available at the back announcing an upcoming seminar for faculty on how to secure funding from corporations and foundations. More on this will be explained at the end of today’s meeting under new business.

 

Agenda Item VI: Presentation of Slates for Election (in May) of New Members to the Executive and Nominating Committees for the terms July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2002 (slate available in hardcopy at meeting) –Harriet Wilkins (Nominating Committee Chair) [INFORMATION ITEM]. Wilkins expressed gratitude to everyone involved in the process. The provisional slate for next month’s election of members to the Executive and Nominating Committees was noted as attached to the agenda. The strict rules on the composition of the committees makes it a hard process to find eligible nominees.

 

Agenda Item V: "Election of President and Vice-President of the Faculty" – Harriet Wilkins (Nominating Committee Chair) (slate available in hardcopy at meeting -- ballots distributed at meeting) [VOTE ITEM]. The coordinator helped Wilkins distribute the ballots for the election of the president and vice-president of the IUPUI faculty. Rothe and Warfel helped Wilkins tally the votes. Sixty-one ballots were cast. Paul Galanti and Mary Fisher were elected President and Vice-President of the IUPUI faculty for the term 1 July 2000 through 30 June 2002. Wilkins moved that the ballots be destroyed and the tally sheet kept in the council office. Motion carried. Powers congratulated Galanti and the FC for its choice. He noted he had now lost two presidencies (the first to Schneider) and credited this one to Paul’s larger headquarters there at New York and West Streets, as well as his own larger war chest which he depleted paying others to vote for Paul. [Laughter] Powers then expressed enthusiasm that he and his running buddy would continue their work together on the Executive Committee. Galanti expressed thanks to the FC for their confidence and to Jerry [Powers] for his kind words. He hoped that he would live up to the standards set by the previous presidents and that he could count on everyone there to serve when he calls upon them.

 

Agenda Item VII: Announcement of Election Results for IUPUI Faculty Council At-Large Representatives for the term July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2002 – Harriet Wilkins (Nominating Committee Chair) [INFORMATION ITEM]. While Wilkins was counting the votes, Galanti referred FC members to the second attachment to the agenda for the list of faculty elected as at-large members representing the IUPUI faculty as a whole. They include: Margaret Adamek (Social Work), Carl Andres (Dentistry: Prosthodontics), Enrica Ardemagni (Liberal Arts: Foreign Languages and Cultures: Spanish), David Avery (Dentistry: Oral Facial Development), Janie Canty-Mitchell (Nursing), Nancy Eckerman (Medicine: Medical Library), Marsha Ellett (Nursing), Paul Galanti (Law), SusanMarie Harrington (Liberal Arts: English), Dolores Hoyt (University Libraries: Senior Management), Robert Keck (Science: Biology), James Klaunig (Medicine: Pharmacology and Toxicology), Monroe Little (Liberal Arts: History), Patrick McGeever (Liberal Arts: Political Science), Rebecca Porter (Allied Health Sciences: Physical Therapy), Susan Sutton (Liberal Arts: Anthropology), Melinda Swenson (Nursing), Frederick Unverzagt (Medicine: Psychiatry), and Charles Yokomoto (Engineering and Technology: Electrical Engineering). Galanti thanked all the candidates for their participation and noted that those not elected may still be called upon to fill vacancies.

 

Agenda Item XI: Vote on Proposed Changes to Bylaw Article IV Regarding Faculty Grievance Procedures (hardcopy of changes available at meeting) – Kathleen Warfel (Chair of the Task Force on Faculty Grievance Procedures). [DISCUSSION AND VOTE ITEM: 20 Minute Limit]. Warfel recalled the previous meetings coverage in detail of the changes proposed for Bylaw Article IV on faculty grievances. She emphasized that the intent of the revisions was to clarify the informal nature of the Mediation Committee compared to the formality of a Board of Review, as well as to address various problems that have arisen over the years such as the proper role of attorneys present during the proceedings. The only change since the last meeting was the insertion of further wording regarding the role of legal counsel at Bylaw IV.G.4.a: “as long as the Chair of the Board deems that the representative’s participation is not disruptive to the Board of Review process.” Generally, the Task Force recommends that external counsels (whether for the grievant or the administration) be permitted to offer private advice but not to formally speak unless the chair permits it. After some clarification and discussion the question was called. Motion carried unanimously. Warfel named the other members of the Task Force (Anne Belcher, Gail Cox, Paul Galanti, Sara Hook, Richard Peterson, Gerald Powers, and Carl Rothe), and at the request of Porter the FC extended their appreciation. [Applause].

 

Agenda Item XII: Vote on Proposed Changes to the Bylaws – Carl Rothe (Chair of the Constitution and Bylaws Committee) [DISCUSSION AND VOTE ITEM: 20 Minute Limit]. Rothe referred everyone to the fourth attachment listing the proposed amendments to the Bylaws. He noted that the notes are listed for information only. The biggest problem proved to be justifying the phrase “administrative authority over faculty or librarians” at Bylaw IV.C.1.d (regarding membership on the Promotion and Tenure Committee) and again at IV.E.1.e. (regarding the composition of Boards of Review). Considerable discussion ensued at this point, especially with regard to service on Boards of Review and the Promotion and Tenure Committee. Mannheimer moved with Yokomoto’s second that the phrase “or persons serving as dean or chairperson” be added at both III.C.1.d and IV.E.1.e. During discussion Vessely and Spechler spoke against the motion. Eckerman stated that the librarians are satisfied with Rothe’s version. McBride distinguished functional deans from the line of authority and suggested “line authority” be substituted for “administrative authority.” Rothe opposed her amendment to the amendment. Plater clarified that the Dean of Faculties is ex officio having no authority so can serve. Galanti called the question on Mannheimer’s motion. Galanti ruled that the motion did not carry. Mannheimer called for a show of hands. Based on the show of hands, Galanti reported that the auditory account was correct. Rothe noted that the same wording is needed at both IV.C.1.d and IV.E.1.e. McBride moved with Schmenner’s second to use the phrase “line authority,” but Eckerman contended this presented a problem for the librarians who needed to distinguish administrative from supervisory and that “line” signified “supervisory.” Porter suggested a parenthetic phrase be added after “administrative authority” stating what it means. Goodine suggested dropping “administrative” and leaving only “authority,” adding that the addition of “administrative” to “authority” is redundant. McBride and Schmenner agreed to withdraw their motion if a parenthetic note is added. J. Keck moved with Warfel’s second that Porter’s suggestion be adopted at both locations. Further problems were raised during the ensuing discussion. Fredland called for the question. Porter suggested modifying the motion to read that the intent of the FC be passed to the Constitution and Bylaws Committee so they can come up with the appropriate wording. J. Keck and Warfel accepted the modification. Galanti called for the vote. Motion carried unanimously. The final approved wording is to be reported at the next meeting (FC000504). Galanti then called for a vote on the main motion to approve the amendments as amended. Motion carried unanimously. Rothe named the members of the Constitutional and Bylaws Committee: Dennis Bingham (Liberal Arts: English), Celestine Hamant (Allied Health Sciences: Occupational Therapy), Jennifer Hehman (University Libraries: Reference and Research), Ngoan Hoang (Nursing), Bruce Matt (Medicine: Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery), Gerald Powers (Social Work) (Executive Committee Liaison), Alan Sawchuk (Medicine: Surgery) (Secretary), Joe Scodro (University Counsel) (Administrative Liaison), and Harriet Wilkins (Liberal Arts: English) (FC Parliamentarian), and thanked them for its hard work on these complex issues. [Applause]

 

Agenda Item XIII: Third Consideration of “Emeritus Policy” – Karen Gable (Faculty Affairs Chair) [DISCUSSION AND VOTE ITEM: 20 Minute Limit]. Noting this as the ‘third” consideration Galanti called for a final up or down today with no further referring back to committee. Gable reported that the committee addressed the “Eligibility” section again and read the changes, as well as the lead-in sentence to the “Privileges” section. They also added an effective date of 1 January 2001. Plater commented that Purdue’s policy in this regard is consistent with the one here proposed. One always becomes an Emeritus Professor and not an Emeritus Associate Professor. Spechler commented that the committee had done a good job responding to the concerns raised at the previous meeting, but since some faculty members retire as an associate professor he moved (with Vanvoorhis's second) that the words “or associate” be inserted between “full” and “professor” under number 1 of the “Eligibility” section. To most people “emeritus” means retired, so lets be kind. After some discussion Galanti called for the question. Motion carried unanimously. He then called for the question for the motion itself. Motion carried unanimously. [Applause] [Final Approved Policy posted here.]

 

Agenda Item XIV: Question / Answer Period. J. Keck asked if the Riley Park Garage is reserved for Riley patients only. Bepko replied that some spots are for faculty and staff.

 

Agenda Item XV: Unfinished Business? There was no old or unfinished business.

 

Agenda Item XVI: New Business? Porter distributed a draft of the proposal that the UFC Educational Policies Committee (co-chaired by Jim Baldwin and Bob Eno) will be presenting to the UFC at its April 25th meeting. She requested that FC members let her know of any issues the policy raises that she should raise at the meeting. She explained that the primary problem is not the transfer of credits but the transfer of individual courses that fulfill requirements for certain majors. While this is sometimes viewed as a problem of IUB not accepting our courses, we also have units that will not accept courses taken on other campuses.  The policy states that any course with the same number shall be for all sakes and purposes the same course at other IU campuses, but implementing that policy (if the UFC adopts it) will require a lengthy process of updating the master course list. President Brand has stated it needs to be implemented within one year. The primary intent is to provide the information to students that they need so the status of a course is known before any transfers. There is a strong interest in this because of student complaints but also because the Community College initiative wants an easy movement into the four-year institutions and free-flowing traffic between institutions. When the UFC achieves a final language to the policy copies will be distributed to the FC members. Suggestions and comments were directed to be sent to Jim Baldwin (jbaldwin@iupui.edu) with copies to her (rporter@iupui.edu). Fredland commented that one year is not long enough and Baldwin replied that the committee had anticipated five years would be necessary before President Brand insisted on one. The Trustees assumed the Admissions Offices could implement the process easily but that’s not the case, Baldwin continued; the Vice-Chancellors at each of the campuses will have to lead the way and initiate discussions on the curriculum across the campuses. Porter added that the Trustees have requested that they receive monthly reports of significant progress. The Trustees mainly want to be sure the faculty commit in spirit to the policy and work for the interests of the students. Watt commented it will prove very difficult especially for some of the different disciplines to work together on this but that it will be worthwhile after it gets going. Spechler commented that the 300 and 400 level courses will pose problems because academic standards must not give way to administrative ease; our standards must be maintained or increased; the danger is that they become reduced to their lowest common denominator. Plater commented that the President’s Council on the Arts and Sciences (including deans from all of the campuses) will facilitate the means and that a mechanism is already in place. Bepko commented that the Trustees are under public pressure to ensure transferability from the community college to the universities. The notion of a transfer problem among the IU campuses came as a shock to the public and they are unsympathetic to our issues. That’s why the Trustees have given the one-year deadline. N. Fineberg commented that if we are to be one university with eight front doors we have no choice but to have easy transferability of courses among the campuses. J. Keck commented that in the past it has often proven easier to simply use a different number for a course than to get a new course approved, which leads to it being harder to transfer them from one campus to another than it to transfer them from IU to Vincennes. Galanti brought the discussion to a close directing further comments to be emailed to Jim Baldwin (jbaldwin@iupui.edu) with copies to Porter (rporter@iupui.edu) and himself (pgalanti@iupui.edu). He noted that is indeed a hot item for the Trustees and a concern of the public.

 

Porter announced that the flyers for the IU Foundation seminar on securing corporate or foundation funding are available. Susan Logsdon (IU Foundation) distributed them to those interested and again mentioned that she and Mark Brenner (IUPUI Vice-Chancellor Research and Graduate Studies) will host the one-half day seminar at the IUPUI Conference Center on April 24th, and that a free lunch is included. She encouraged FE members to distribute the flyers to their colleagues.

 

Agenda Item XVII: Adjournment. Galanti adjourned the meeting at 5:30 pm.
