Agenda Item I. Call to Order: Rebecca Porter (Vice-President of the IUPUI Faculty)!

Vice-President Rebecca Porter called the meeting to order at 3:34 p.m. and welcomed the membership back for the start of the spring semester.

Agenda Item II. Memorial Resolution (see attachment*): Carmen S. Sharp, RN, MA, Associate Professor Emeritus, School of Nursing.

The council rose for a moment of silence.

Agenda Item III. Minutes for September 4, 1997 (see attachment*), to be approved.

Watt moved and Powers seconded that the minutes for September 4, 1997 be approved. The motion carried.

Agenda Item IV. Chancellor's Report: Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor & IU Vice-President).

Porter explained that Vice-Chancellor Plater would give the administrative report since Chancellor Bepko was at a meeting and would be delayed. Bepko gave his report in the question and answer period (see below).

Plater mentioned four items. The first was a progress report on spring semester enrollments. There was good news for the campus. Comparing this year with last year, there was a slight increase of 117 more students and 3,900 more credit hours.

Second, Plater distributed an announcement of the 1998 Teaching Excellence Recognition Award (TERA) campus guidelines. Each school will develop its own more specific guidelines, and is to submit names of recipients of the award to his office by March 2 0. He pointed out that the restriction of the award to an individual only once every three years had been lifted; frequency will be determined by the school.

Third, given Vice-Chancellor Blake's departure (officially beginning his duties at Iowa State on January 1, 1998), he distributed a document that described the plan for the transition period. Working with the Student Affairs Committee, the Faculty Coun cil, the Academic Policies and Procedures Committee, and the Honors Council, it was hoped that the search for a Dean of Students would be completed by May 1998. Given the creation of University College, this vice-chancellor's portfolio was changed. An int erim Vice-Chancellor for Student Life might be named, otherwise a national search will be launched. A progress report was promised for the next meeting, and close contact with the Executive Committee would be maintained.

Last, a handout was distributed inviting faculty, administrative officers, deans, and department chairs to attend a workshop on February 5 to begin looking at online staff and faculty development training programs. There are a wide variety of education al developmental programs that can be delivered to the desktop.

Agenda Item V. President's Report: William Schneider (President of the IUPUI Faculty & Co-Secretary of the UFC (University Faculty Council)) -- Executive Committee Report* on the # of Unit & At-Large Representatives to Elect (see attachment*).< /P>

Before moving to the president's report, Porter welcomed Harriet Wilkins on her return to the council as parliamentarian, and thanked Carl Rothe for his service in this role during her absence while she was teaching in Malaysia.

President Schneider also thanked Carl Rothe, especially for his work with the constitution. He then referred the council to the attachment and reported on the number of unit and at-large representatives to be elected. He also noted that Ray Koleski (So cial Work) had resigned from the Nominating Committee and that the Executive Committee had replaced him with Golam Mannan (Education).

Schneider announced that an orientation session would be held again this year for those who were to be elected to the Board of Review pool later, and an organization session for those elected to the new Mediation Committee. He thanked those leaving the Board of Review pool for their service, and highlighted its importance for the faculty.

Last, Schneider said a word or two about upcoming agenda items for the spring semester, including the move to Division I NCAA status, the new Technology Committee, the revised Sexual Harassment Policy, Family-Related Partial Leave policy, the Post-Tenu re Review policy (or Faculty Review and Enhancement), and a policy regarding Non-Tenure Track Faculty.

With regard to Post-Tenure Review, all campuses are considering the possibility of an overall university policy. The UFC Faculty Affairs Committee and the campus Faculty Affairs Committee have discussed and revised the original draft, and both will be coming to a decision.

The Non-Tenure Track Faculty discussion has been continuing for a year and a half at this campus and by the UFC as well. Data has been gathered and deliberations about what might be done have begun. The UFC Faculty Affairs Committee is planning on movi ng forward this month with some specific recommendations on the matter. It will then come before this body.

In response to a question from Warfel, Schneider clarified that it was possible the UFC might decide to not have a university-wide policy. In response to a question from Besch, Schneider agreed that the Bloomington people probably intended there to be no university-wide policy, at first, but that it may be different now that their AAUP chapter has taken it up. He opined that any eventual policy would most likely not look much like the one this campus is now considering.

Agenda Item VI. Election of Mediation Committee and Faculty Boards of Review -- ACTION ITEM --: Nominating Committee (slates distributed in advance with agenda (see attachment*) -- ballots distributed at meeting).

Karen West, assisted by the members of the Nominating Committee present, conducted the election. The results of the election were as follows: elected to the Mediation Committee for a one-year term were James Baldwin, Henry Besch, and Jim Wallihan; elected for a two-year term were Pat Blake, Dick Fredland, Sara Hook, and Carl Rothe. Elected to the Board of Review pool for a two-year term were Naomi Fineberg, Karen Gable, Jeffrey Grove, B. Keith Moore, Gerald Powers, Sherry Queener, Judith Richter, B rian Vargus, Patricia Wittberg, and Enid Zwirn; elected for a one-year term were Carol Gardner, Christian Kloesel, Robert Lehnen, Marguerite Shepard, and Roy Westcott. Permission was granted to destroy the ballots and keep the tally sheet in the faculty c ouncil office.

Agenda Item VII. Report (see attachment*) on NCAA Self-Study: Cheryl Sullivan.

Dean Plater introduced Cheryl Sullivan as the new Vice-Chancellor for External Affairs who will be leading IUPUI into its new NCAA participation. Sullivan described the plans for the NCAA self-study, approved by trustees last October. The athletic program must be one of integrity while also consistent with the campus mission. NCAA certification standards require the campus to conduct a plan for self study consisting of four areas or operating principles: governance and commitment to rule compliance , academic integrity, fiscal integrity, and commitment to equity. A committee of over 50 members, comprised of faculty, students, staff, and members of the general public (community leaders) will conduct the self-study, which is required within five years . The goals of the self-study are to establish strong connections between the mission of IUPUI's athletics program and the campus mission, to educate our campus and the citizens of Indianapolis about what our expectations are for our Division I athletic p rogram, to identify the existing and potential strengths and weaknesses in our athletics program and the means for correcting the weaknesses, to establish meaningful and realistic standards and benchmarks for future development, and to ensure that we have an organization that will carry out IUPUI's vision for intercollegiate athletics. Sullivan requested the council's participation as the self-study process continues. Deliberations will be posted to a website (to be developed), and articles will be publis hed in "Campuscape" and the "Partnership" newsletter. She introduced Vice-Chancellor Trudy Banta as the leader of this activity, and Mike Moore as the Athletic Director.

In response to a question from Sothmann regarding the standard for gender equity, Sullivan spoke generally of a consistent proportionality between the ratio of males and females in the student body and the ratio of males and females in the athletes who are playing. She also spoke of a proportionality of participation. She highlighted the issue of needing to meet gender equity standards, saying they would closely follow the recruitment process, campus advertisements, and maintenance of grades.

Moore added that in working to correct the gender imbalance, they were forced to cap the squad sizes for male programs, an effort not welcomed with open arms by the male coaches. The gap was closed significantly but at the expense of providing aid to t he young men. He also pointed out that the gender equity report doesn't distinguish between those who came to only one practice and those who competed the whole year--all that come out are included as on the squad. He also mentioned a need to improve our recruiting efforts by putting more emphasis on recruiting the female side and even converting some female part-time coaching positions into full-time. Its hard to recruit for two hours on the phone after you get off your eight hour job. Recruiting is a fu ll-time job.

Agenda Item IX. Universal One Debit Card: Vice Chancellor Robert Martin.

With the permission of the council, Vice-President Porter changed the order of business so Chancellor Bepko could be present for the discussion of the search and screen procedures. Vice-Chancellor Martin distributed a document on the Universal One Debit Card. Before discussing it he gave an update on the progress of the childcare center. During January three things will happen. An architect will be selected, perhaps the architect who designed the Ronald McDonald House and who is now employed by Sch midt and Associates. Second, Beth Jeglum is forming a building design team to work with the architect in designing the facility. Third will be an evaluation of the financial impact of the construction of the facility.

Warfel added that Beth Jeglum would be presenting detailed information about the plan for the childcare center at the meeting of the Commission on Women on February 27.

Martin then discussed the document he had distributed on the IUPUI one-card system, a preliminary draft. Beginning about three years ago ID cards became mandatory at the undergraduate level. They will remain voluntary at the graduate and profession al levels. Since then the card has been extended beyond identification to an access card to certain facilities, and a debit card in some areas. If a department or school or faculty or staff member chooses to have an ID card, or if a building chooses to ha ve access electronically by a card, that card will be the One Card.

Martin explicitly addressed the use of the card to access facilities. Currently there are several facilities on campus that have installed a variety of electronic access systems. To ease the problems of managing these various systems, all future instal lations of electronic entry systems will be accessed by the One Card. On the use of the One Card as a debit card, Martin explained that the cards already serve as debit cards at vending machines; future plans may include their use at copy machines and boo kstores. Any further recommendations were encouraged.

In response to a question about the use of the One Card to access electronically controlled parts of the hospital and medical school, Martin conceded that those areas are under Clarionís control, so for those personnel and students there will be two ca rds: the One Card and Clarionís identification card.

In response to a question from Powers about the possible limitations or liabilities of the One Card, Martin mentioned the possible perceptions of invasion of privacy and how the cards may be used by the administration. Also electronic systems all have downtimes. Backup systems should be in place to respond to system failures. Martin could not think of a downside to the debit uses of the card, since it provides money up front to the university, which receives the interest it generates.

Shirnoff asked if the animal facilities were going to be secured. Martin said he did not know if the Animal Use Committee planned to address it, and that it was up to facilities to request the use of that technology. Shirnoff then raised the security c oncern about the lack of picture identification on access cards whose owners have lost them; Martin suggested there would be a problem if the owner does not cancel the card when itís lost.

Spechler provided three points from an economistís perspective on the use of the One Card as a debit card. The first was the idea of breakageómoney left over on the card after its owner has left the institution. While this unused money would be a benef it to the university, it would be seen by the owner as a loss of an investment, particularly if it were difficult to get the money back, and would be a disincentive to putting much money on the card. Second, if the card is used without a PIN number it wou ld operate the same as cash, a downside for some. Third, there was a possible inconvenience factor. If the card gains widespread use, users may be in the position of having to use a card even for small purchases, which would make them have to invest in th e cards. Martin responded that PIN numbers may be used in the future for certain transactions, and that cash would always be accepted in the bookstores. Lost cards can be cancelled and, since the system keeps track of the transactions, the balance can be transferred to a new card.

In response to concerns from Mannheimer about the cost of the security systems and possible invasions in privacy as the times of a personís movements in and out of facilities are tracked, Martin said costs are recovered in a monthly maintenance fee fro m the schools. The transactions and times recorded by the system are only made available to the relevant unit dean or chairperson, e.g. only the bookstore receives information about transactions made there. The security system that operates at Ball Reside nce in the evenings has been a success.

Yokomoto asked what the primary motivation was to develop the card. Martin responded that it was convenience, now that student identification was mandatory on campus: it is a convenient method for both identification and a means for access to facilitie s, and secondarily for its convenience in using vending machines.

Agenda Item VIII. Search & Screen Procedures for Campus Administrators (see attachment*) (also posted on the web, under "Documents" on the Faculty Council Homepage: http://www.hoosiers.iupui.edu/faccoun/faccou.htm).

Schneider commented that the background and justification for the procedures could be found on the cover memorandum. It represents a stage in a process that has also included the development of written procedures for the review of campus administra tors.

The adoption of the procedures was recommended by Chancellor Bepko on behalf of the administration.

After some discussion of the Faculty Councilís leadership role in promulgating these procedures, Vessely moved that the search and screen procedures be adopted. The motion carried.

Agenda Item X. Question / Answer Period.

Chancellor Bepko began the session with a few comments, since he had been absent earlier in the meeting. He reported that a terrible incident had happened at the law school: a racist document had been placed in some studentsí mail folders. In respo nse, the administration was going to reissue a statement on civility and diversity with added emphasis on the administrationís desire to eliminate this kind of racist commentary; a shortened version will be published in "Campuscape." Next Monday , Martin Luther King Jr.ís birthday, Benjamin Hooks will appear as the speaker at the campusís Martin Luther King Day Dinner. The next morning he will address the scandalous document in a special session at the law school in an effort to address the stude ntsí concerns and help in the healing process. There will also be a vigorous investigation to search for the identity of the person or persons responsible for the hate letter. Money is being raised for a cash reward for information leading to the identifi cation and discipline of the person.

Bepko next discussed the ongoing pay equity study. Some of the criteria used in analyzing faculty salaries included objective factors, such as rank, time since terminal degree was awarded, and years of service to the university. An attempt was made to use other criteria that were aimed at evaluating the quality of work done, such as the number of refereed publications and recognition for teaching excellence, but this attempt proved to be unworkable. Instead, the study adopted a strategy used by Bowling Green State University to ask each department (or each school if there are no departments) to group the faculty in that department into certain classifications to allow an analysis of how well each faculty member was contributing to the goals of the univ ersity. This has been controversial. One problem may have been a deadline that was too short, so it may be extended. Another concern was that some departmentsí Promotion and Tenure Committees may have trouble fitting their faculty into the classifications . Departments were encouraged to do the best they can. A further concern was whether the information gathered would be used for some other purpose; Bepko stipulated that the information would be inadmissible in any other evaluative exercise. At the end of the study, the information will be destroyed.

Porterfield commented that having the departments rank the faculty according to the studyís classifications would simply be legitimizing and reiterating the pay inequity that already exists.

Warfel clarified that at this stage, the pay equity study is attempting to evaluate how the institution is doing as a whole, not to address possible remedies for individual situations. The inclusion of a merit factor in the pay equity study was intende d to be a study within the study, that is, to enable a comparison of a set of statistics with a merit factor against another set of statistics without a merit factor. The study within a study has three stages. First, the deans and chairs have been asked t o submit a copy of their written salary policy. Then the members of the Promotion and Tenure Committees (who as part of their committee function have already been evaluating the faculty) have been asked to individually and anonymously (not as a committee) rank their colleagues in a set of gross categories. The third stage involves the principal investigator matching up the data for each faculty member without merit ranking, to data with merit rankings. It is an internal test for consistency and is a total ly separate process from analyzing whether or not an individual is receiving enough pay.

To end the question and answer period, Rothe complimented the administration for its plans to install a traffic light at the North Street entrance to University Hospital.

Agenda Item XI-XIII. Unfinished Business, New Business, and Adjournment.

There was no unfinished or new business. The meeting was adjourned at 5:00.
