Faculty Council Minutes: November 5, 1998

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)!

Vice-President Galanti called the meeting to order at 3:35 pm.

Agenda Item II. Approval of Minutes for October 1, 1998 (distributed earlier via email and on web at "http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/minutes/fc981001html.htm" and see attachment1).

Sutton moved and Webb seconded the approval of the minutes. Motion carried.

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

Chancellor Bepko reported on two items, the first a response to the question of how things are with IUPUI. If we could sell stock in IUPUI we would be beating the market because investor confidence is up, even in the face of shrinking percentages o f State funds in our budget. Confidence is up because of IUPUI's reputation, a fact highlighted recently at New Orleans during a conference on the future of the land grant university. He then called upon Executive Vice-Chancellor William Plater to report on the Third Annual Chancellor's Fall Convocation: "Post-Tenure Review: Where Enrichment and Accountability Converge" (November 4). Plater spoke highly of guest speaker Christine Licata, a Senior Associate of the American Association for Higher Education. She spoke of the New Pathways Project which focuses on faculty careers and employment in the 21st century. The project is looking at many universities, but enormous attention has been paid to IUPUI. Licata singled IUPUI out with regard to post-tenure rev iew, and the life and work of faculty. Plater summed up saying our innovation has made us a hot topic. He gave special thanks to Sara Hook and Karen Gable for their work.

For his second item, Bepko used the overhead to reflect some numbers that indicate the quality of our success. He compared the 1997/98 academic year with that of 1998/99 by looking at the September amounts of contracts and grants at IUPUI, compared to IUB. In September of 1997 IUB had $6.2 million and IUPUI $15.7, while this September IUB has $8.3 and IUPUI $22.6. Extrapolating from September of 1998 to all of 1998/99 leads again to the conclusion that we would be beating the stock market (if we were a stock).

Agenda Item IV. President's Report: Rebecca Porter (IUPUI Faculty President & UFC Co-Secretary).

President Porter gave a brief report. At the October Trustees' meeting the new Herron sculpture and ceramics facility, the new law school building, and the new physical therapy teaching laboratory were approved. The 18-20 recommendations were also adopted. This coming Tuesday (11-10), the University Faculty Council (UFC) will meet at IUPUI. Topics include guidelines on post-tenure review and the choice of open or closed hearings by grievants at Boards of Review. An inconsistency was discovered to e xist between the policies of UFC and IUPUI, and also IUB. The intent will be to change the language of the policy to allow campus determination of the matter. Lastly, she reminded members that the Chancellor's State of the Campus Address would follow the December meeting, and that the exact time and location was not yet set.

Agenda Item V. "UFC Guidelines for Post-Tenure Review Update" -- Karen Gable (IUPUI Faculty Affairs Committee Chair & UFC Faculty Affairs Co-Chair) [INFORMATION ITEM]

As a segue to the next item, President Porter explained that Karen Gable would be "visually" presenting the "UFC Guidelines" because they have not yet been approved, and because the IUB Faculty Affairs Committee only yesterday came up with differen t guiding principles. The bottom line was that it is unclear what to expect regarding the UFC discussion this coming Tuesday (11-10). Even the label itself, "post-tenure review," is an issue in need of resolution. It is possible that the same thing will b e referred to differently at the campus level and the UFC level.

Continuing Porter's segue, Karen Gable explained the UFC had not only not seen the guidelines yet but would now be seeing both IUB's and IUPUI's jointly. She said she hesitated to share the ones she was projecting on the wall using the overhead, since UFC had not yet discussed them. The first six guiding principles were later supplemented with three others to make nine "Guiding Principles for Post-Tenure Review":

Guiding Principles for Post-Tenure Review

The quality and integrity of academic programs depend upon the performance of individual faculty. Indiana University as an institution and its faculty members have a mutual and reciprocal commitment to ensure the ongoing productivity of individuals th roughout their academic careers. Peer review is an essential aspect of continued improvement and faculty development.

It is the intent of the University Faculty Council Faculty Affairs Committee to identify principles which serve as the foundational concepts upon which campus policies related to post-tenure review are derived. With that focus, the Committee has s upported the following "Guiding Principles":

Post-tenure review should

    1. preserve academic freedom,
    2. recognize situational differences of its diverse faculty,
    3. define chronic lack of productivity,
    4. establish professional development as a goal,
    5. protect due process,
    6. establish dismissal process consequent to non-compliance,
    7. rely upon peer review at all steps in the process,
    8. incorporate existing faculty review mechanisms, and
    9. include the concept of intermediate sanctions prior to dismissal proceedings.

University Faculty Council Faculty Affairs Committee (10/28/98)

A follow up meeting of the UFC Faculty Affairs Committee is in the process of being scheduled.

Porter called for a discussion by the council of the principles.

Spechler, a member of the IUPUI Faculty Affairs Committee, praised Gable's efforts to negotiate a compromise with IUB, and found it outrageous and very serious that no discussion between IUPUI and IUB has taken place with respect to the guidelines. He pointed out that IUB voted "no" with regard to dismissal for underperformance (allowing dismissal only for misconduct or incompetence), whereas IUPUI's policy also envisions a standard of productivity below which corrective procedures are set in place. He questioned whether we can live with this vast difference between IUB and IUPUI, especially with regard to the system schools. What we now have is an unsatisfactory situation, a chaos.

Hook pointed out that the extra three principles (#7-9) are consistent with our policy (she submitted them), and that the UFC Co-Chair from IUB did express a concern with defining "chronic unproductivity."

Porter responded affirmatively to Chernoff's question of whether the schools should continue to work on defining chronic unproductivity, a task they had been given.

Plater spoke of the campus's proposal for funding the implementation of the policy. He named the members of the committee (Erv Boschmann, Jeannette Dickerson-Putman, Bob Harris, Susan Kahn, Doug Lees, Jerry Powers, Bill Schneider, et al) who would be w orking with the faculty governance leaders and organizations. There is a new form where satisfactory or unsatisfactory performance can be indicated, but it won't be used this year.

Spechler responded to Porter by drawing attention to the fact that there is no unanimity even within the committee regarding the dismissal process.

Porter replied that the committee was careful that our "Faculty Review and Enhancement" plan not mention dismissal, and pointed out that unless the dean gives notice of the intent to dismiss for incompetenc, dismissal cannot happen. The committee does plan to review how the two documents fit together during the spring semester.

In response to Galanti 's question of whether the IUB council or only the faculty affairs committee had adopted these guidelines, Gable and Porter said it was only the committee, but IUB does have a policy.

In response to Rothe's point of order, seconded by Galanti, that the council members need to see the new IUB guidelines, it was agreed the coordinator would email them to members the following day. Porter recognized the problematic nature of discussing the principles and explained that the general intent is to receive responses from council members in preparation for the UFC meeting Tuesday (11-10).

Galanti brought the discussion to a halt by returning to an item under the Chancellor's report and called upon Vice-Chancellor Bob Martin for an update on the child care center.

Martin reported that Beth Jeglum and the architects were working together successfully, that he had brought the latest designs to show those interested after the meeting, that it is hoped the Trustees will approve the design request at their meeting on December 4, and that overall, we're on target.

Agenda Item VI. "Honors Development Plan" -- Jeff Watt and Sharon Hamilton (document on web at "http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/documents/honorsdevelopmentplanhtml.html" and also campusmailed earlier) [INFORMATION ITEM].

Watt explained that he was standing in for the chair of the Academic Affairs Committee, Jim Baldwin, who was out of town. Ted Mullen had presented this plan to the Academic Affairs Committee at its September meeting. The committee feels an Honors P rogram is vital and recommends the council move forward on it, to address the need to attract honors caliber students.

Hamilton spoke for Mullen saying he was sorry he couldn't be here (he was out of town), but that he had provided a script for Hamilton's presentation. Using overheads, Hamilton presented "Creating an Honors Program in University College." Those involve d included Scott Evenbeck, Sharon Hamilton, Joseph Kuczkowski, N. Douglas Lees, E. Theodore Mullen, Jr., William Orme, and Gary Wittlich. Her presentation highlighted certain features of the document: the rationale, the review of the program in 2002/03, a nd the qualifications for entrance to the program. She brought to a focus the program's mission and vision: emphasizing academic excellence, student inclusion, cultural diversity, service learning that leads to community leadership, and research under fac ulty mentors. The sample program consists of 24 credit hours and involves learning teams that consist of faculty members, librarians, student mentors, and the students themselves -- with information technology as a focus. The plan calls for a first year s eminar, a research project, an integrative experience, a senior thesis (which includes a public presentation, a web posting, and an eventual work shelved at University Library). Besides a BA or AA program, students may also participate in individual cours es. The general improved intellectual vitality of the whole campus is the aim. In summary, the program will be inclusive, reach out to the community, educate, bring about mentoring, and produce research, with electronic media playing an integral role.

Hamilton answered Pfile that both IU and PU degrees are possible.

Hamilton responded to Eckerman's comment on the importance of marketing and the potential problem of creating two student classes by saying outreach work would be ongoing.

Warfel recommended adding the word "enhanced" before "intellectual stimulation" on page five of the document, so as to not convey the wrong impression.

Hamilton pointed to the first year experience with learning communities in response to Wilkins concern that the "small classes" mentioned on page five will lead to a trickle down rationale.

R. Keck supported the program, but expressed concern that the proposal did not include adequate assessment criterion. A review is promised in five years and measures are referred to (page 14), but that's not enough -- a mechanism of measurement is need ed. He found this problem routinely, not just with this project.

Hamilton clarified for Rhodes that the research project and the senior thesis could possibly be combined.

Responding to Ross, Hamilton noted that the plan could possibly result in students taking more credit hours than the usual 120 or so, but not necessarily. Rothe emphasized that "Honors within the Major" needs to be emphasized. Spechler seconded Rothe a nd pointed out that a demanding major might make a problem of the honors option, a problem that could result in small enrollments, which in turn could lead to relaxed standards. Spechler's main criticism though is that there is no budget (above and beyond whatever University College will cost).

Hamilton responded that they are aware of the problem of demanding majors and that Lees is working on it. Plater spoke to the budget pointing out that the Trustees had allocated 1/2 of 1% of the undergraduate tuititon which would be dedicated to implem enting this project (an amount of about $225,000).

In response to Schmenner's request for a comment on the integration of the plan with the existing schools, Evenbeck commented that they would be working with the faculty of each individual school, and confirmed that he (Schmenner), as a faculty governa nce leader, would soon be contacted, possibly by Mullen.

Sutton supported the program but wondered why only 1/4 of the necessary credit hours (6/24) were from present courses, and speculated that this might be a waste of resources. Hamilton responded that the determination of the need for new courses was bas ed on the new principles of undergraduate learning, the intent to integrate the student into IUPUI, and the focus on electronic portfolios. Some of the features of the Honors Program are intended for all students.

Seeing that time was running short, Galanti called for one more question from Hamant, who asked why the program began with freshmen instead of juniors (as the honors program at Allied Health Sciences now does). She also wondered how this new Honors Pro gram would fit together with the one her school already offers. Hamilton promised to take her question back to the committee.

Galanti thanked Watt and Hamilton.

Agenda Item VII. "Disruptive Student Policy" -- Beverly Ross [INFORMATION ITEM: TO BE VOTED ON AT THE DECEMBER 3 MEETING].

Ross, as Chair of the Student Affairs Committee, told the council her committee welcomed comments at this meeting for her to take back to the next committee meeting before returning to the council's December meeting for a vote of approval. She firs t wanted to emphasize however that the focus is on disruptive conduct and not disruptive students. The submitted document contains an introduction, a set of definitions like what is meant by the academic environment, some expectations of behavior, and gui delines to follow if there is disruption.

Spechler noted the timeliness of the document given the disruptions at IUB last spring, but also wondered whether there should not be an intermediate authoritative body for the faculty member to consult before contacting university police.

Ross distinguished disruptions in a classroom from those outside the classroom. Langsam added that police are sometimes necessary and faculty need to know they are available and that it is appropriate to call upon them.

Harrington found the focus on conduct instead of students to be very useful, but raised the issue of when demonstrations outside the classroom cross the line of protected political speech into disruption. Ross responded that some demonstrations are app ropriate and others aren't, but that generally it is okay for students to demonstrate.

E. Fineberg spoke to the need to define the conditions under which demonstrations are permissible so as to escape the charge of being arbitrary, and raised the question of whether any demonstration is disruptive if large enough.

Mannheimer appreciated the concern of his older colleagues who might not remember 1971 but pointed out that often the point of disobedience is to go over the edge, such that no enacted protocol would help. Times change and using the lessons of the '60s and '70s might be dangerous. Generally it's the tone and spirit of the campus that will determine what is proper comportment, so we shouldn't attempt to delineate too much. Beyond that, we're at the mercy of history.

Warfel pointed out that disruptors often "want" the police to be called, and raised a point on the documentation of the incident: should a copy go to the student?

Galanti thanked everyone for their useful comments, and directed that any others be sent to Ross, who will return at the December meeting for the council to take action.

Agenda Item VIII. "NCAA Self-Study Announcement" -- Trudy Banta (Vice-Chancellor for Planning and Institutional Improvement) [INFORMATION ITEM].

Standing in for Trudy Banta, Bill Kulsrud (NCAA Faculty Representative) reiterated that IUPUI is now in the NCAA Division I, and therefore must do a self-study. A team of NCAA reviewers will be coming next spring to review our program. The handout that was distributed at the meeting listed an URL (http://www.jaguars.iupui.edu/ncaa/ncaa.html) where various documents can be found. The NCAA requires that he circulate the self-study, so he is here to ask for feedback from the council (email is fine). T he document lists two upcoming open meetings: Tuesday, December 1, 12-1, in Lecture Hall 103, and Thursday, December 3, at 5:30, in Lecture Hall 104. The document also contains a summary.

Agenda Item IX. Question / Answer Period.

Warfel began the question/answer period asking Chancellor Bepko to compare the School of Medicine to the other schools with regard to the numbers he had shown (Contracts and Grants). Bepko admitted that the School of Medicine contributed the lion's share (85%), but Warfel clarified she actually wanted to hear of the increases on the academic side. Bepko confirmed that their percent of increase was greater than Medicine, and highlighted Engineering and Technology as increasing more than any other sc hool in the IU system. SPEA also has done well. Warfel emphasized that it is not only the School of Medicine that is contributing to the quality of IUPUI. Bepko added that we do better than either IU or PU when one considers the size of the faculty that g enerates the money -- and we teach more too -- we're wonderful. Besch commented that if the State learns that we're doing so well they might give us even less so we can do even better. Bepko acknowledged that the State does not always reward high performa nce appropriately.

Galanti requested a breakdown by the schools which Bepko promised would be sent in campusmail by Monday.

Fisher inquired if the recently retired were included in the salary equity study, and Bepko answered that the retired were in fact excluded, right or wrong, because of possible legal problems. We can't go back and reward those who are no longer working .

Galanti raised a question for the Chancellor regarding the funding of 18-20. He wondered what was the reaction of the Dean's Council. Bepko said they were sceptical. Someone pointed out that no one will work fulltime for 120% rather than not work for 1 00%. Besch added that when Social Security is factored in, the choice becomes 120% if work and 120% if not work, so no one will opt to work. The Dean's Council was also sceptical of how much of a burden the 20% will be, especially for particular schools. Switching taxation to the schools within which the retirements are located, away from the campus level budget, will put all of the burden on those schools who have retirements, the same schools who will need new people, whom they will have to pay more to compensate for less benefits. The burden seems to compound on those units where there is retirement activity.

Spechler relayed the feeling from the UFC that the plan is deficient, but noted that at a previous IUPUI faculty council meeting, the possibility was raised of an unofficial early retirement (for those no longer enthused), which would save the campus a lot of money, but added that legally this can not be an open policy. Galanti commented that even with the reorganization of the IRS, keeping secrets from them and their ubiquitous tentacles is still a problem, but Spechler remained confident there were n o IRS agents in the room. [Laughter]

After the laughter quieted down, Bepko admitted that Spechler had indeed raised an interesting new definitional issue, distinguishing incompetency, the chronic lack of productivity, and the end of enthusiastic participation. [Laughter]

Galanti turned to Besch for a word of wisdom.

Besch responded he is the wrong voice for any word of wisdom, but did voice concern over how the faculty pocket is being picked to pay for 18-20, and wondered about the supposed "windfall" at the end of the period, and raised questions concerning inter est. Overall we will have less people doing the work of more.

R. Keck continued the discussion speaking of a surtax, a mechanism of reimbursement back to the academic units whether with or without interest. Bepko responded that this will generally be the way it will work, but that the tax on a retirement line wil l eventually come back to the campus, so there will be a windfall for the campus, around 2018. Keck rejoined that academic units are not interchangeable with the campus though. Bepko agreed but added that the money will go from the campus to the academic units. Besch then brought up responsibility centers, but Galanti called a halt to the discussion.

Agenda Items X-XII. Unfinished Business, New Business, & Adjournment.

Seeing no unfinished or new business, and hearing no motion to adjourn, Vice-President Galanti reminded members to sign the attendance sheet so a quorum is registered, and took it upon himself to say we are adjourned.
