Faculty Council Minutes: May 4, 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 noted that Chancellor Bepko and Executive Vice-Chancellor Plater were on their way from IUB and would be a bit late.
Agenda Item II: Memorial Resolutions for Professor Emeritus Robert A. Munsick (Medicine: Obstetrics and Gynecology), Professor Raymond J. Russo (Science: Biology), and Professor Arthur C. White (Medicine: Medicine: Infectious Diseases). At the behest of Galanti a moment of silence was observed. A memorial resolution was then distributed for IU President-Emeritus Herman B. Wells. President Porter spoke of Wells’s vision in the 1960s for IUPUI’s future and of the dimension of the man that shows in the many personal connections he made, helping others to feel they were an important part of IU’s success. Faculty leadership today needs to learn from him his personal touch and carry it forward. A moment of silence to reflect on the contribution of this great man to our great institution was observed. Galanti added that Wells’s regular attendance at the annual IUPUI commencement ceremony long showed the measure of the man and his dedication to IUPUI as an integral part of IU.
Agenda Item III: Approval of the Minutes for April 6, 2000 (posted on the web at http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/minutes/fc000406html.htm. The minutes were approved with no changes.
Agenda Item IV: Chancellor's Report: Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor & IU Vice-President). As part of the Chancellor’s report, and assisted by Grove, Vice-Chancellor Banta distributed a “Fall 2000 Admissions and Enrollment Update.” She pointed out that beginning with the 1999 fall semester, IUPUI has been denying admission to about ten percent of the unprepared students, based on their class rank, GPA, and SAT scores, and that as of January 2000 that cutoff had been raised to include the lowest twenty percent. Comparing the admissions data for 1999 and 2000, she noted that there were six percent more applicants this year (4027) but since many more were denied (239), the number admitted was still down by seven percent (2909). Transfers were up (606) and nondegree also (45), but the total is still down six percent (3560). The good news is that we are making a difference in the quality of our entering students, aiming mostly at admitting those from the top one-third of their class, but since the numbers are down we are undertaking a new initiative to market IUPUI using television commercials. Other aspects of the initiative include weekly meetings with the deans on marketing to the returning adult students, enrollment targets for each school, and possible changes in dismissal policies to reduce their impact on retention, among other things.
Vice-Chancellor Sullivan prefaced the showing of the four new television commercials by saying IUPUI worked to develop them for several months with Bruce Hetrick of Hetrick Communications Inc. and with Essex II out of Chicago. Based on research, the focus was to capitalize on the good news that IU and PU degrees are the most respected degrees in Indiana, and to respond to the bad news that many parents and counselors do not know that IUPUI grants degrees from IU and PU. The four commercials of fifteen seconds each are constructed to pound home that message. The first emphasizes earning while learning thus getting a jump on one’s career. The second emphasizes saving money on room and board by living close to home. The third emphasizes the quality degrees uniquely offered at IUPUI. And the fourth emphasizes the greater choices IUPUI offers with its broadest range of programs of any college or university in Indiana. The commercials were then viewed. <Applause.>
Sullivan explained that the scripts for the commercials had been taken to three area high schools (Southport, North Central, and Lawrence Central) for preview and feedback. Students didn’t like the idea of “living at home’ and instead preferred “close to school,” so a compromise was made and it was changed to “close to home.” Students suggested not showing lots of trees and people because they were tired of the Ball State commercials, so lots of color and movement and music were added. The commercials will be shown through the second week of June. There will be 506 spots on all days of the week during “Friends,” “Seinfeld,” “The Simpsons,” “The Today Show,” and the local news. Also, some will air during the NBA playoffs, and the airtime will be free. The measure of their success will not be the number of applications or the number of denial letters or the short-term percent of enrollments, but the long-term actual enrollments of students who make IUPUI their first choice. Our study will return to the same three high schools in the fall (using different students). The basic message that one can earn IU and/or PU degrees at IUPUI will also be sent to the print media.
Meiss suggested using Channel One which the high schools should soon have access to. Sullivan will look into it. Banta called upon Michael Donahue from the Admissions Office who explained that the staff there were working hard to turn applications into enrollments within a forty-eight hour turn around period, including phoning applicants whose applications are incomplete. According to The New York Times, schools today are focusing a lot on recruitment. About thirty percent (or 600 a month) of our applications are coming through the web. Faculty support is needed and appreciated.
Asked by McBride where our transfers are coming from, Donahue replied that most come from Ivy Tech, with Purdue second, and then the others like Ball State. IUB doesn’t count but would be first. Banta added that 100 students transferred here from Ivy Tech in 1998 but 124 this year, which ultimately will have an impact on the gap between application and admission.
Spechler commented that The New York Times referred to “admissions,” but that’s only half-way to the goal or yield which is actual enrollees who put down their money. Also, he contended that IUPUI will never get more than half-way to its goal as long as students continue the nonsense of associating IUB with IU. He corrects them that IU includes both IUB and IUPUI, but there’s a long way to go yet to change this misunderstanding.
Fredland commented that the commodification of possible students may be the problem. Students themselves say the problem is an absence of human contact, especially with advisors. All the electronic stuff and the advertising is not crucial. Banta responded she agreed that the actual yield is the main point and that a group has been meeting to increase the contact of the admissions staff with the faculty to drive home that point.
In reply to Schneider’s question about the increase of applications, Donahue stated that IUPUI, like other places, is tightening up and making it harder to get in. Letters were sent last year to all PSAT students on the value of IUPUI. The number of applications through the web is increasing but many are incomplete. Word is getting out that it is possible to get an IU and/or PU degree at IUPUI.
[Agenda Item IV will be continued when Bepko and Plater arrive from IUB.]
Agenda Item VI: President's [Final] Report: Rebecca Porter (IUPUI Faculty President & UFC Co-Secretary). Porter explained that Bepko and Plater are on the road from IUB because one of the committees of the IU Board of Trustees was meeting earlier this afternoon on some important issues, including housing at IUPUI, and it was critically important they were there to answer the Trustees’ questions.
The UFC passed the transfer policy and we now have one year to implement it. The intent is for all IU courses to be easily recognizable and transferable across all campuses. The AOC (Academic Officers Committee) will now develop procedures to determine that the same numbered courses are equivalent. Bob Eno (UFC Educational Policies Co-Chair, from IUB) and Porter (who is also serving on a committee of the Commission for Higher Education on course transfers among institutions), will assist the AOC in the development of those procedures. The UFC also discussed non-tenure-track appointments, an update of which will be presented later at this meeting.
Over the summer the coordinator will implement a web-based committee preference form so the information is better available.
The Executive Committee met with the Board of Review Pool and the Faculty Grievance Advisory Panel for an interesting discussion on the grievance process. Although Plater has already informed the deans, all FC members need to spread the word to their colleagues about the new changes in the grievance process that the FC adopted.
The University College Annual Report has been distributed to keep the FC informed of what is going on there. Please read it and address any questions to Dean Evenbeck (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Agenda Item VII: President's Annual Summary Report on Grievances with Respect to Boards of Review and the Mediation Committee -- Rebecca Porter. Porter referred the FC members to the report attached to the agenda. No Boards of Review were completed this year. The grievance process starts with a letter from the grievant to the President. Notice is then given to the administration. The President then waits two weeks (the administrative phase) to see if a resolution can be reached. During 1999/00, one grievance went to the Mediation Committee but no resolution was reached. Another grievance was filed but resolved during the administrative phase. A Board of Review is now forming for a third grievance, and a fourth very recent grievance is now in the administrative phase.
Agenda Item VIII: President’s Annual Summary Report on “Actions Taken by FC for 1999/00” – Rebecca Porter. Porter referred the FC members to the report attached to the agenda. The FC was very active, passing important items like changes to the Constitution and Bylaws, including the grievance process. Porter then thanked the FC members for their investment in the faculty governance of IUPUI. The richness of IUPUI would not be there without them. She asked those members completing their term to stand (about 30). [Applause.]
Agenda Item IX: "Election of Executive and Nominating Committees" – Harriet Wilkins (Nominating Committee Chair) (ballots distributed at meeting) [ACTION ITEM]. Wilkins noted that Spechler had resigned his Executive Committee membership due to the granting of his sabbatical, and explained that the Executive Committee would later choose one of the nominees not elected to complete Spechler’s term (1 July 2000 through 30 June 2001). This explains why a nominee from Liberal Arts was able to be slated. Before the election, Mannheimer requested his name be removed from the ballot due to his recently granted leave of absence to work with Thompson Electronics on a project for a year. Wilkins was helped in the election by Hook, Langsam, and Warfel. Some time later the results were announced: elected to the Executive Committee for the two-year term 1 July 2000 through 30 June 2002 were Dolores Hoyt, Bart Ng, Rebecca Porter, and Marianne Wokeck. Elected to the Nominating Committee for the two-year term 1 July 2000 through 30 June 2002 were William Conrad, Christian Kloesel, Rosalie Vermette, and Marian Wagner. Vermette had the most votes so will serve as chair for the 2001/02 academic year. The Executive Committee will also later choose two of the nominees not elected to complete Rothe’s 99/01 term, since he is retiring, and Ng’s 99/01 term, since he was elected to the Executive Committee and cannot serve on both. Langsam moved with N. Fineberg’s second that the ballots be destroyed and that the tally sheet be kept in the Faculty Council Office. Motion carried. Porter invited the new Executive Committee members to attend the last remaining meetings for this year as guests (May 11, 18, and June 8).
Agenda Item X: Report by Constitution and Bylaws Chair on the Precise Wording of the Parenthetic Phrase Adopted at Bylaw III.C.1.d and IV.E.1.e – Carl Rothe. Rothe referred the FC members to the attachment to the agenda and read the precise wording his committee arrived at to express the intent of the FC when it adopted the amendments the previous meeting. A faculty member will be prohibited from serving on the Promotion and Tenure Committee or on a Board of Review if they have “the authority and responsibility to sign an administrative document concerning the title, pay, or working conditions of a faculty member or librarian.” Anyone who doesn’t like it will simply have to bring the matter up at a meeting next year. The FC expressed thanks to Carl for his long hard work on this matter.
Agenda Item XI: Annual Academic Calendar Status Report-- Jim Baldwin (Academic Affairs Chair) and Mark Grove (Registrar). To begin the yearly ritual with the crystal ball, Baldwin reported that the calendar is up to 2010 now, and pointed out the faculty have authority over degrees, the curriculum, and the calendar. Grove added that the Calendar Committee had not met this year but that next year it would ask for approval up to 2020. Spechler requested that the committee again look at the possibility of adding a break half way through the fall semester like is done in the spring semester (spring break), instead of having a break only very late in the fall semester (Thanksgiving). Grove replied that the time for teaching would have to be reduced, like IUB does with a shorter fall semester than spring, but he agreed to take the proposal back to the Academic Affairs Committee. Other places do teach less; 2000 minutes is the minimal requirement. In 1990 the FC insisted on keeping both semesters balanced with a full length of instruction. Webb asked of the possibility of IUB and IUPUI alternating commencement on Mother’s Day. Grove replied this would require a Saturday / Sunday flip every other year, but the committee will consider it. Last, Fisher suggested adding two days to the fall semester by beginning on a Monday instead of a Wednesday and then using those two days later on for a long weekend. Grove replied this might be possible and would be considered, but he pointed out that the challenge is accommodating the laboratory classes which run according to a particular schedule. Grove also pointed out a typo in the enrollment update that was distributed: the web address at the bottom needed “#indy” deleted.
Agenda Item XII: Update on UFC Discussion on Non-Tenure-Track Appointments – Rebecca Porter [INFORMATION ITEM]. Porter noted this topic was discussed at UFC000425 and referred FC members to the documents at http://www.indiana.edu/~ufc/circulars/99-00/U13-2000.htm and http://www.indiana.edu/~ufc/circulars/99-00/U14-2000.htm titled “Draft of Regulation of Lecturer and Clinical Appointments” and “Draft of Academic Appointments” respectively. These will be acted upon early in the fall, concerning the Academic Affairs Committee especially. Spechler commented that the Gable proposal is an enormous achievement on the most important issue in a long time. Two troubles continue to exist though. First, flexibility is lacking in that the lecturer and senior lecturer appointments will be automatic multiyear appointments, leaving no place for one year or year-to-year appointments which IUPUI needs most. We need to be sensitive to those needs and not necessarily go along with the proposal from what Besch called PCB (the pastoral campus at Bloomington). Second, the elimination of associate instructors will be a step backwards from the IUPUI view. Still, the proposal will improve conditions for our associate faculty if passed.
[Continuation of] Agenda Item IV: Chancellor's Report: Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor & IU Vice-President). Noting that the senior administrators had returned from the pastoral campus [laughter], Galanti returned the meeting to agenda item IV.
Bepko explained they had to leave Trustee Richardson at the Trustees Meeting early in order to attend this very important meeting, Rebecca Porter’s final meeting as President of the IUPUI Faculty, and everyone else there was resentful as they left [laughter].
Bepko reported on an article in the Sagamore (April 17, 2000, page 1) that quoted our basketball coaches Chris Simpson and Ron Hunter. He refused to say who was right or wrong, but did say that the overall tenor of the actual conversation was reflected in a way that was not intended, and hoped their apology would mitigate the situation. Because of their newness and inexperience in dealing with the media, we accept their apology and will mark it up to learning how to deal with the media. He also did not simply blame the media though.
Agenda Item V: Administration’s Annual Summary of Actions with Respect to Promotion and Tenure – Gerald Bepko. Bepko called upon Plater for this annual report. Plater referred to the fifth attachment to the agenda. [Note: This refers to revised report dated 8/2/00 which corrects errors in the original report.] Comparing this year to previous years there has been very little variation. We have been effective on the department, school, and campus levels. Item 3 shows how we stand apart nationally with our tenure-related candidates: 30% excel in teaching, 45% in research, and 39% in service, a special point of pride for our campus; because some faculty have documented excellence in more than one area, the total is more than 100%. Many of our faculty demonstrate excellence in more than one area. In response to Warfel, Plater pointed out that those holding the research rank of scientist or scholar are included in the “Clinical & Other” category. He added that many of those holding clinical rank do excellent research work but it’s not considered a basis for promotion. In response to Schneider, Plater pointed out that denials of tenure are reflected in the report but not as to why or who. Plater also confirmed for Rothe that only 3 holding research ranks were up for promotion compared to 4 in 1998/99, and explained for Fredland that all cases, whether recommended by peer review committees or not, are forwarded to the Board of Trustees for action, and that the cases recommended by the administration are usually the same as the cases approved by the Trustees. Plater referred Spechler to Sara Hook regarding an estimate of the number who withdraw their candidacy, a number difficult to ascertain because it is not reported at the primary and unit levels. Hook replied that if memory served correctly there were no withdrawals at the campus level, but the number at the school level, if any, was not known.
Regarding the upcoming commencement, Bepko reported there would be four honorary degrees conferred this year. Walter Blackburn, an Indianapolis architect, would be presented a PU degree by Dean Yurtseven. Mari Evans, an Indianapolis poet, would be presented an IU degree by Dean Plater. Robert Payton, the first director of the Center for Philanthropy, would be presented an IU degree by current director Eugene Tempel. Last, Dean McBride would present an IU degree to a distinguished colleague from Thailand, Amara Raksasataya. Finally, in recognition of his last commencement as an officer, Purdue President Steven Beering will be the speaker and give the valedictory for the ceremony.
The Trustees gave their blessing for the issuance of RFPs (Requests for Proposals) for IUPUI student housing. They will go out the first of June for consideration over the summer, so we are still on track for housing available for the fall of 2002.
Last, from the Trustees, the issue of salary policy, with the background first, then this year’s policy, and finally the results for the campus. Over the past six years the Trustees have set more and more restrictions with the average salary increases for each campus between 3-4%. On a national comparison, the IUPUI average has been about ½ a percent higher, but compared to our six peers, we are ranked fifth using salary data supplied by the AAUP (American Association of University Professors). That data however is incomplete because the cost of living was not factored into the average compensation. With that adjustment we are second, and if an adjustment for our full fringe benefits (e.g., the 18/20 plan) is made, we are first in many categories. We compare favorably with our peers and the nation when 18/20 is included. For 2000/01 the Trustees adopted a policy for faculty salary increases (excluding Medicine) on the average of 3-4%, with 3.8% for our campus. If increases for faculty in Basic Medicine are included our average rises to 3.9%. Those in Clinical Medicine get very little IU increases at all. The administration knows that some units on our campus will receive less than those averages, is mindful of budget pinches, and will do what it can to help. Other units will have to decide to sacrifice some plans to meet those salary recommendations.
Bepko replied to Fredland that the administration reports accurately for the campus as a whole, and to Besch that some schools, depending on their flexibility, have been re-allocating in various ways from their departments in order to meet the salary recommendations, but can do so only for so long. Bepko confirmed with Spechler that the data Fredland referred to included increases generated through promotion, and clarified for Schneider that tuition for IUB and IUPUI is already higher than the regional campuses and the Trustees cannot re-allocate money across campuses and cannot do better with the legislature than they have, but know the strength of the university is the faculty, so recommended average campus increases of 3-4% knowing that some schools will necessarily be less. Bepko replied to Warfel that there is no word yet from the Trustees on the next Medical School Dean, but perhaps by the end of May. Bepko congratulated Baldwin on a point well taken and agreed that having better building names (not just letters like BS or ES) on every entrance would help students tremendously, but pointed to the eventual solution of naming the building after donors.
Agenda Item XIII: IUPUI Bookstores' "Save Students a Million Dollars Program" -- Kent Brewster (email@example.com) (Bookstores Marketing Director) [INFORMATION ITEM ONLY: 5 Minute Limit]. Brewster thanked the FC for the opportunity to present the bookstores’ mission of providing texts and supplies for students while saving a million dollars program. He noted that their revenues support student activities, which is not the case with Follet’s or purchases off the internet. The program addresses the high costs of texts and aims to reduce those costs by selling more used texts and selling more new bundles. Referring to the attachment to the agenda, he contended that $500,000 could be saved if the faculty could turn in their adoption forms earlier (the week before the finals of the previous semester), giving the bookstores time to buy back more used texts. The students can save even more if texts are bundled for a course -- but faculty consent is required. We can save the students a million dollars but it will work only if the bookstores and the faculty work together. Comments or questions were requested (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Agenda Item XIV: Question / Answer Period. Bepko replied to Ng that some administrative reviews are under way (Hoyt, Martin, Wilcox), but for the most part we’re now caught up and will begin the cycle again so all administrators are reviewed every five years.
Agenda Item XV: Unfinished Business? [At this point the election results were presented – see agenda item IX.]
Agenda Item XVI: New Business? Bepko had some words regarding IUPUI and the Indianapolis community. IUPUI does not have all the resources it needs to achieve its full potential, nor does it have the encouragement and support it deserves from all the quarters it would like to have, but it nevertheless keeps succeeding not because of our long history of alumni who weep when they hear the fight song of their alma mater, but because of our especially high level of collegiality, teamwork, trust, and collaborative decision-making which permit our wonderful university family to achieve more than others expect. That’s why it’s so important that we recognize those moments that contribute to our collegiality and contribute to the system of collaborative governance within IU that makes us strong and permits us to focus our attentions on beating the competition and not on monitoring each other to keep track of what we find suspicious. Our earlier subject was salaries and we do understand and care, and we do need to talk about it and do better, but, more importantly, we also need to recognize another feature of our campus, an extremely important part of our collegiality and the system of collaboration on our campus. He cares a great deal for IUPUI and has spent much of his life making it better, as have Plater and others. That’s why it makes us especially happy and it feels very very good when someone contributes as much as has Rebecca Porter. For many years, but focusing specifically on the last four years in her role as vice-president and then president, she has led the faculty and the whole university. She has contributed by being involved in the intercampus transfer of credits and the creation of University College, both of which reflect her concern for students, and in various women’s issues, which have made the campus a better place, perhaps enlightening a few others along the way. She has perhaps made her main mark though on the faculty review and enhancement policy, which though now sanctioned by the Trustees, entailed an intricate and confounding process that would never have been traversed without her leadership, or worse, would have resulted in something egregiously bad being imposed on the campus. She deserves an enormous amount of credit for helping make the system better and for helping achieve some of these specific things, but generally, for bringing a wisdom and stability to life on campus in some ways unparalleled. She’s been one of the greatest contributors to our health and well being. Thanks very much! And Congratulations!
Noting that the UFC had earlier presented her with an engraved dog bowl, Bepko presented a gift from the administration to Porter -- her very own bowl (a crystal bowl). [Laughter and Applause.] Galanti also thanked her for a job well done and hoped only to do half as well himself. Noting how much time faculty governance takes, and how much time she would have on her hands now, he presented her with a gift from the Faculty Council (an engraved clock). [Applause.] Bepko pointed out that both gifts have IUPUI logos, also announced that a dinner for her and the Executive Committee was being planned by the administration in her honor, at which she could anticipate some further gifts, and noted that the beautiful flowers were meant to show everyone how much she also was admired. [Standing ovation.]
Porter thanked everyone very much. She said she has enjoyed the opportunity to be at the head table but now looks forward to being out there. [Applause]
Agenda Item XVII: Adjournment. Noting that the council would not meet again until September 7, and extending best wishes to those who were retiring from the university or completing their term on the council, Galanti called for an appreciative round of applause for their marvelous job. [Applause] He then adjourned the meeting at 5:30 pm.
