Faculty Council Minutes: September 2, 1999

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.


Agenda Item II: Approval of Minutes for May 6, 1999 (on web at http://www.iupui.edu/~fcouncil/minutes/fc990506html.htm"). Powers moved with McCarty's second that the minutes be approved. Motion carried.


Agenda Item V: Introduction of Karen Whitney, new Vice-Chancellor for Student Life and Diversity. Chancellor Bepko introduced the new Vice-Chancellor, Karen Whitney, to the council. Coming from the University of Texas at San Antonio where she was Associate Vice-President for Student Life, with a background that includes the building of student housing, a student center, and a family and child development center, she is perfect for IUPUI. [Applause.]


Agenda Item IV: Introduction of Nancy Chism, new Associate Vice-Chancellor for Professional Development. Plater then introduced Nancy Chism. Recruited from Ohio State where she held a similar position, she has been published in numerous publications and has authored several books including one on the peer review of teaching. Under her leadership the Center for Teaching and Learning will be revitalized to be more inclusive with a focus on some of our campus priorities, such as retention. The programs of the Office of Faculty and Professional Development will be redesigned and restructured after she consults with various faculty committees and schools over the next year. She brings extraordinary experience and insight to her work, and is well known and highly respected across the country as a leading authority on the development of associate faculty and graduate assistants. She also holds appointment as an associate professor in the School of Education. We are pleased to welcome her. [Applause.]


Agenda Item III: Chancellor's Report: Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor & IU Vice-President). Bepko announced that Valerie Eickmeier was no longer the Acting Dean but was appointed Dean of the Herron School of Art. She could not be present but was out raising money for Herron's 100th anniversary and its coming move to the downtown campus.


Vice-Chancellor Plater had some good news on enrollments and also some news that could be better. For the first time in years the overall headcount is down by 244 but the number of credit hours is up by 871. IUPU Columbus has an increase of 45 students. Our first year students are appreciably better prepared than in previous years with average SATs of 944, up from 935 last year. The number of those students who were in the upper one-third of their high school class is up by two percent. This data on enrollments will be better analyzed and finalized and then made available in about ten days. A preliminary look at our retention results (one of our most important priorities this year) reveals that our first and second year students retention rate went up from 51.4% last year to 55.1% this year. Most schools have had their enrollments go up. Generally, we're in good shape but we need to re-double our retention efforts. Registrar Grove distributed a one-page handout from the Office of the Registrar on Enrollment Reporting that shows how the data is normally summed up, and recommended that FC members check out the URL (http://www.iupui.edu/it/ace/enrollment.html).


Vice-Chancellor Sullivan reported that the 3rd annual IUPUI Family Day, hosted by Jean and Jerry Bepko, would be held at 11:30 am, on Sunday, September 19th, at the Track and Field Stadium. Free tickets to the soccer game between the IUPUI women's team and Central Michigan will be available, as well as special discounts for all faculty and staff at various vendors in White River State Park such as the Indianapolis Zoo, the IMAX Theater, and the Eiteljorg Museum. Invitations are in the mail.


Vice-Chancellor Banta then distributed the "IUPUI 2000 and Beyond" document, IUPUI's response to President Brand's request to consider the impact of the community college initiative on the campus and its vision and mission, as well as the opportunities and challenges it presents. Banta explained that each school (see the appendices) contributed to the nine-page plan and that implementation strategies are now needed to transform it into an action-plan. Several groups will be asked to study the document over the next few weeks and respond. She requested that FC members email comments, suggestions, or additions to her (tbanta@iupui.edu). A Town Hall meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 5th, from 3:30 to 5:00 pm in the University Library Lilly Auditorium, to discuss IUPUI in 2000 and beyond. More information will be forthcoming at the next FC meeting.


Bepko added that this is a very important time for this document and encouraged FC members to attend the Town Hall meeting and to help to refine IUPUI's strategy so as to create an optimal program for making this transition.


As a campus we are undergoing two big transitions. One is the consolidation of the hospitals and the creation of Clarian Health Partners Inc., including our quest to create a model for how academic medical centers will respond in the 21st century to the healthcare market so as to preserve the core values of academic medicine while also dealing with 21st century healthcare realities. The second transition concerns our general undergraduate academic programs and the state's community college initiative. Much of our work in this area, for example our Ivy Tech partnership, will begin to accelerate with new money and new publicity and new locations, such as Fort Benjamin Harrison. We see it as our opportunity to clarify and sharpen IUPUI's focus as an institution. We will cede some of our enrollments to the new community college and navigating this period of uncertainty will prove difficult but we will move forward at a more rapid pace towards our own destiny of greatness. FC members are encouraged to get involved and help plan the transition over the next few years as the community college arrives.


The Executive Committee had requested that the Chancellor report on the campus master plan. Bepko addressed what is being done on our peninsula with regard to our neighbors, our presence off campus, and our development projects on campus. Ground has been broken for the new Urban League headquarters on Indiana Avenue between West and 10th streets. New facilities are being developed on Stadium Drive such as Harlan Sprague Dawley Inc., which is affiliated with the university to create the mice and rats used for experimental research. They will form part of the Med America Research Corridor which we envision being developed over the next decade north of the campus and filled with high-tech health related industries. On the east side of the campus there is the new Indiana Historical Society which will be linked to the university in a variety of ways, and moving south and west, the Eiteljorg Museum expansion, the new Indiana State Museum being built around the Imax Theater, and the Zoo's botanical gardens. The staff have moved in to the new NCAA Headquarters and its Hall of Champions will be ready in early 2000. Our neighbors are great cultural and entertainment assets. LaRue Carter will be razed for parking, and possibly, the State Board of Health too.


Our own presence off campus can be seen in the new Herron ceramics facility on Stadium Drive next to ARTI (Advanced Research Technology Institute), in the new development between General Electric and the Radiology Department at the old EMPF (Electronics Manufacturing Productivity Facility) location by the canal at St. Clair Street, and in the move of IHETS (Indiana Higher Education Telecommunication System) from the old Bowers Building to that same facility. After Herron moves into the old Law School Building the Indianapolis Foundation plans to acquire the buildings (with the support of others) and make them a home for arts organizations and to maintain the character of that community. Clarian and IUPUI plan to make the area between 16th Street and the main campus the most attractive and successful urban environment in the world with its housing and economic activity, an area of which Indianapolis will be proud. More research space will likely need to be built to accommodate the 21st century research and technology fund, but temporary warehouse space may be utilized or built on Stadium Drive.


With regard to development projects on campus, we are optimistic that the IU Trustees will approve the 1000 unit first phase of housing recommended by the consultants in their October final report. With that first phase of development, ten percent of our students will live on campus. The childcare facility is going slow due to the complicated bidding with contractors and the many available alternatives. The plans for the student center will get going this year under the guidance of Karen Whitney. The first phase of the project to restore the Van Nuys Medical Science Building is completed and the second phase has been funded. The new Law School building is under construction. Planning for the new Communications Technology Complex is going on in earnest and will house UITS, TransPac, Internet2, the new School of Informatics, and possibly the WFYI Public Broadcasting Station. Architect Robert Stern and Master Planner John Belle, collaborating together, will draw a lot of architectural attention to our campus, especially the quadrangle bounded by New York, West, Michigan, and Blackford streets. The new Law School building is in the southeastern corner of that quadrangle, the new Communications Technology Complex will be in the northeastern corner, a new classroom building will possibly be in the northwestern corner (replacing Mary Cable), an undetermined academic building (eventually) will be in the southwestern corner, and near the center but closer to the western edge between California and Blackford Streets, there will be finally a new office building that will house the campus administration, Purdue's and IU's administration (both now in the Conference Center), the IU Foundation, and the Center on Philanthropy among other centers. The entire quadrangle will have a courtyard (east of the office building) and may accommodate underground parking of up to one thousand cars. Opposite the office building, on West street, at Vermont Street (which will be closed), will be built a new ceremonial and spectacular pedestrian gateway to the campus. The "New York, West, Michigan, and California Streets Superblock" is planned to be the transition from the community to the campus, and our front door. North of this quadrangle, roughly bounded by West, North, Blackford, and Michigan streets, will be built a new park that parallels Military Park in appearance but only about one-third the size. This will be the vista seen from downtown, an important symbol of our campus. Please react to these plans for the new gateway.


The first meeting of the new board of the 21st Century Research and Technology Fund will meet next week. An article announcing the members of the board appeared in the Star newspaper. Despite what the paper implied, we will be the main emphasis and it will mean a lot for the campus. Finally, regarding research, for the 1998/99 academic year we received about $151 million in grant activity, up from $130 million or so last year. IUB received about $70 million and we think West Lafayette will remain steady with $138 million. "Which campus generates more grant activity than any other in Indiana?" will be the "Jeopardy" question to the answer "IUPUI" someday. [Applause.]


Agenda Item VI: President's Report: Rebecca Porter (IUPUI Faculty President & UFC Co-Secretary). Porter expressed delight to see so many seats filled. The Executive Committee will meet with the FGLs (Faculty Governance Leaders) on October 21st to discuss the school's concerns and issues at the campus level. The Executive Committee will also meet with the chairs of the FC's standing committees on September 16th to open lines of communication and establish plans for the academic year.


As the Chancellor indicated, one of the issues the FC will address this year is our planned response to the community college initiative so as to make it a positive move for IUPUI. Also, Sara Hook (Office of Academic and Faculty Records) will be working with the Faculty Affairs Committee to establish procedures for dealing with emeritus appointments, which do not now exist. Those procedures will be brought before the council.


The Campus Planning Committee has revised its charge and configuration and will be meeting with the Executive Committee to discuss the language. Those changes will be brought before the council.


Last year the council responded to the Trustees and approved the policy on dismissal for incompetence, but those discussions are continuing due to some needed language adjustments. After the appropriate language is reached which satisfies the concerns of the Trustees another document will come before the council for approval.


The Academic Affairs Committee will present to the council at its next meeting a change in wording of the policy regarding exams during the last week of classes instead of during final exam week. The committee will recommend endorsement at the November meeting.


The schools should be aware that the Indiana Commission for Higher Education has requested that the public universities respond to the possible elimination of degrees they warrant should not continue due to insufficient graduation rates, and that President Brand is disputing the Commission's authority to eliminate degrees. In the meantime the schools are generating responses and faculty should be aware of their school's response.


UFC (University Faculty Council) will tackle the issue of transferring credits and courses from campus to campus, especially those courses which fulfill requirements. A resolution is expected. Data is being gathered by questionnaires at all campuses by the administration in coordination with the UFC so that a recommendation can be made to the Trustees on how to improve the TERA (Teaching Excellence Recognition Award). The UFC might look at its policy on administrative reviews, given some of the concerns expressed during President Brand's review.


An updated IUPUI organization chart for 1999 was distributed. Attachments #4-5 to the agenda list pertinent information on the FC members. Changes should be sent to the FC coordinator (fcouncil@iupui.edu). Porter is not in the directory this year, possibly since she moved from BR 112 to CF 326D. Call the Faculty Council Office (4-2215) for information on how to contact her (8-1880) (rporter@iupui.edu). Dean Plater was also left out. [Laughter.].


Agenda Item VII: Announcement of Slate for Election Next Meeting (FC991007) of At-Large Representative to the Promotion and Tenure Committee -- Mary Fisher (Nominating Committee Alternate Chair -- for Harriet Wilkins). Fisher called attention to the attached slate. At the October meeting FC members may vote for up to two of the four candidates. The person with the most votes will serve for a three year term and the one with the second most will serve a two year term, completing Ulla Connor's term.


Agenda Item VIII: "IUPUI Athletics Committee Guidelines" -- Cheryl Sullivan (Vice-Chancellor for External Affairs) [INFORMATION ITEM]. Sullivan presented some background to the revised guidelines for the IUPUI Athletics Committee. In May of 1998 the Trustees adopted the policy for each campus to create and convene an athletics committee. We drafted guidelines based on the Trustees' adopted policy and submitted them to the Executive Committee with the understanding that the final guidelines would need to be endorsed again a year later. The Executive Committee endorsed them last week (August 26). You now have them before you. There will be twenty-seven voting members serving two-year terms. Fourteen of those will be faculty members recommended by the Executive Committee but appointed by the Chancellor. Besides faculty members, there are also students, alumni, and community leaders. Sullivan read the key sentence from section A.2 that governed the selection of members: "The committee membership should have broad representation, properly balanced to assure gender and racial/ethnic equity and reflect the diversity of the population at IUPUI." To guarantee faculty control of athletics no committee action may be taken unless a majority of the members present are faculty. The committee has ten functions taken from the Trustees' adopted policy. For example, the sixth function states that this committee "participates in the evaluation of the IUPUI Athletics Director and the selection/dismissal of the Athletics Director." Comments should be directed to Bill Kulsrud, the committee's chair for this year.


Agenda Item IX: Question / Answer Period. Chancellor Bepko proudly announced that according to the Nilsson Ratings the most popular radio station on campus is Parking Radio at 1610 AM under the leadership of Bob Martin, general manager, and that if the high ratings continue advertising might be sold. [Laughter.]


In response to Mannheimer's jeopardy answer of "IUPUI" Plater asked "What university has the longest name?" [Laughter.]


In response to Spechler's question of the implications envisioned for WFYI (now housed on the Butler campus), if it were to move to IUPUI, Bepko replied that it would maintain its independent legal entity status but that it would have a collaborative relation with IU and IUPUI.


Agenda Item X-XI: Unfinished or New Business? There was none.


Agenda Item XII: Adjournment. Providing directions to the reception, and with J. Keck's motion and Lewis's second, Galanti adjourned the meeting at 4:35 pm.
