Bepko outlined the planning effort that is underway for the future of IUPUI given the impact of the new Community College system. Beginning with the end of WW II it was IU's mission to provide access to higher education but in 1989 Ivy Tech took some of that burden, and now it and Vincennes will relieve us even more. If IUPUI were part of the California system of higher education we would be the University of California at Indianapolis, the California State University at Indianapolis, and also the California Community College at Indianapolis. [Laughter.] IUPUI's goal had been to reduce the breadth of these three responsibilities slowly, but that has now accelerated.


We do need to wisely navigate through this turbulence and make a transition to having a sharp focus. From last May through this coming November planning meetings have been held, from the Academic Deans Retreat (August 30), to the Town Hall Meeting (October 5), and on to having a plan to submit to President Brand (November 1).


Referring to the short version of the "IUPUI 2000 and Beyond" document (which was distributed at the meeting), Bepko drew attention to some of its key recommendations. IUPUI needs to distinguish itself from other institutions, but we need to be careful about giving up our enrollments and the finances they provide. We need to jump right into this sea of opportunity and reshape the institution with a new focus on our students and programs, on post baccalaureate degrees and research, on distributed learning, and on partnerships with area businesses, industry, and the government. FC members were strongly encouraged to read the document and send their comments. The administration requested advice from the faculty.


In response to a question from Meiss, Bepko explained that the new Indiana law sets out the community college system to be workforce oriented and not to follow the two plus two model of the junior college which the national scene shows to not be working. The ICHE (Indiana Commission for Higher Education) conceived of the new community college system as providing an opportunity for IU and especially IUPUI to address fewer responsibilities (those passing on to the community college system) and to re-focus. We are optimistic that the state will financially support the transition.


During that transition, the Campaign for IUPUI will also be occurring. With it we plan to say to the state of Indiana that this is not your parents' IUPUI but a new one. The campaign will build public support and also raise philanthropic support. All of our units are now engaged in the campaign and after twenty-six months (July 1997 - August 1999) our original goal of $400 million may have to be pushed up to as high as $600 million or more, based on the trends we are seeing. Two years from now when we officially announce the Campaign for IUPUI we expect that its new goal will be the highest ever in this region.


Agenda Item V: President's Report: Rebecca Porter (IUPUI Faculty President & UFC Co-Secretary). Porter announced that teams from Temple University and Portland State University were visiting the campus as part of the Pew funded project "Restructuring for Urban Student Success: An Invitation to a Campus Dialogue about Learning Communities at IUPUI" (RUSS). She was pleased to introduce her faculty governance counterpart from Temple University (Philadelphia, PA), the Faculty Senate President, Dr. Ann VanSant, who also coincidentally happened to be a member of their Physical Therapy program. [Applause.]


Looking ahead to upcoming FC meetings, Porter noted a discussion and vote on the new policy for exams during finals week at the November meeting (introduced at this meeting), as well as introducing for discussion recommendations for changes in the "Faculty Review and Enhancement" document (the deletion of one word), and several changes in the "Dismissal Procedures" document, both to be voted on at the December meeting.


The UFC will meet at IUB on October 12th and work at establishing policies for the intercampus transfer of credits and courses, and a policy on non-tenure-track faculty. All campuses will also be sharing information regarding faculty concerns over the new Community College system.


The Board of Trustees will meet in Fort Wayne at the end of October and the University Polices Committee will begin reviewing and deciding which degrees to eliminate due to low enrollments and few degree recipients. Dean Plater sent a memo to the academic deans asking that faculty be kept involved in any such decision. Degrees could possibly become annually reviewed so appropriate review processes within each unit should be considered by faculty.


Agenda Item XI: Senior Academy -- Ed Robbins (Senior Academy President) [INFORMATION ITEM: 5 Minutes]. Robbins came to the FC to invite the members to help the Senior Academy meet their mission: "The Academy is an independent association of retired faculty and staff who contribute their expertise and experience to the University and to the greater community. The Academy, with the assistance of the University, encourages and assists scholarly, professional, educational, and service interests of the members, enabling them to continue to contribute to the campus and its programs." Their provisional goal this year is to plan how to meet that mission. They know that it involves supporting the not-yet-retired faculty but it is those faculty who know best how to use the members of the academy as a resource, whether individually or as a whole. Robbins expressed hope that the academy and the FC together would find a way to meet that mission. FC members were asked to contact one of their own, Pat Blake, who represents the Senior Academy on the FC. The academy itself also has its own email (sacademy@iupui.edu), a fax (278-03602), a phone number (278-2444), and a campus address (AO 139). Last, he again encouraged the FC members to use the academy as a resource to help in their business, and also, perhaps, to think about joining the academy themselves as they approach their own golden years of retirement.


Agenda Item VI: Election of At-large Representative to the Promotion and Tenure Committee -- Mary Fisher (Nominating Committee Alternate Chair -- for Harriet Wilkins) [ACTION ITEM]. Fisher drew attention to the slate attached to the agenda, presented instructions for the election, and distributed the ballots. Assisted by Carl Rothe, Steve Mannheimer, and Mark Grove, ballots were collected and tallied. Akin Ecer will serve on the Promotion and Tenure Committee for the three-year period. Richard Meiss won the run-off between Brian Vargus and himself and will serve for the two-year term. Fredland moved with Vermette's second that the ballots be destroyed and the tally sheet kept in the faculty council office.


Agenda Item VII: "Urban Universities Portfolio Project" (brochure distributed at meeting) -- Sharon Hamilton (Director of Campus Writing) and Vic Borden (Director of Information Management and Institutional Research) [INFORMATION ITEM: 5 Minutes]. Hamilton explained that Borden was not able to come and then told a story about a communication breakdown between the dean and the faculty at an institution. The dean had a lot of good ideas but could not communicate them to the faculty because they were so busy, so he took them on a cruise. Communication still failed though, so he called for the gangplank to be lowered, walked 100 steps out on the water and then 100 steps back to return to the boat. The next day the headlines read "Dean Can't Swim." [Laughter.]


Hamilton said IUPUI is like that story. IUPUI might be able to walk on water, but our publics don't notice it or acknowledge it. The mission of an urban institution is not assessed appropriately when contrasted with residential campuses. We know we are in fact doing very well so we are constructing an electronic portfolio as part of our involvement with five other universities under the leadership of Susan Kahn (who was present and introduced). Our three areas of focus will be student learning, community connections, and research and scholarship. Hamilton then read the three anticipated outcomes of the portfolio: 1) to crystallize, in a public forum, the role of IUPUI as central Indiana's urban public university; 2) to demonstrate to diverse internal and external communities what we are doing well, where we need and wish to improve, what steps we are taking, and, in a very fundamental sense, to demonstrate that we have the will and the ability to improve; and 3) to highlight current partnerships with the community and to serve as a catalyst for more.


She distributed a brochure to FC members which included three color-coded cards self-addressed back to her which asked questions about, (one for each) student learning, community connections, and research and scholarship. Hamilton encouraged FC members to fill out and return the cards so that the electronic portfolio they are constructing will truly show what we are doing (http://www.imir.iupui.edu/IUPUIfolio).


Some sub-committees have been developed under the leadership of David Stocum and Mark Brenner (research and scholarship), Cheryl Sullivan, Paula Parker-Sawyer, Amy Warner, and Bob Bringle (community connections), and Bill Plater, Vic Borden, and herself (student learning).


Agenda Item VIII: Announcement of the "International Strategies for IUPUI Campus Town Meeting" (October 27th, 4:00 pm, Lilly Auditorium of University Library) -- Giles Hoyt (International Affairs Associate Dean) [INFORMATION ITEM: 5 Minutes]. Using the overhead, and thanking Greg Lindsey for putting the statistics together, Hoyt showed that a planning process was initiated in 1997/98 to assess the strengths and weaknesses of our international programs, which have come a long way over the last two decades. The result is the "IUPUI Strategic Plan for Campus International Development." IUPUI's mission statement does not at this time have an international component, but the number of international students (2% compared with 3-7% at our peer institutions) is increasing dramatically, and the number of international researchers (or post-docs) has increased by 10% for the last three years to about 500. In addition, the Office of International Affairs works with an increasing number of permanent residents, about 450 this year. Our study-abroad students (from the several schools which have programs) increased from 100 in 1995/96 to 140 in 1996/97. Problems include a lack of systematic development, insufficient inter-school cooperation, and a lack of infrastructure (eg, housing). Our strengths are the variety of programs we offer, the breadth of expertise we provide, our ideal location, an office of international affairs that offers a variety of services, and ESL (English as a Second Language) programs, including academic ESL, ELS (English Language Center, Inc.) for intensive English, and ICIC (Indiana Center for Intercultural Communication) for advanced level intercultural communication. The strategic goals are to develop an international curriculum, recruit and retain international students, and to develop study abroad opportunities. Hoyt read a statement which the IAPC (International Affairs Program Committee) thinks of as its own type of Kantian categorical imperative for the campus's international development, and which is part of the IUPUI International Strategic Plan: "IUPUI is committed to interdisciplinary education, research, and service through collaboration and partnerships with academic, business, not-for-profit, governmental, and professional institutions in the city, state, nation, and world. As a major urban university with programs in health, engineering, sciences, arts, and the professions, IUPUI provides opportunities for its community of students, faculty, and staff to grow intellectually and personally, to increase understanding and respect for diverse cultures, and to contribute to the quality of life and economic well-being of Indiana, the United States, and the world."


Expressing optimism about the future of international programs at IUPUI, Hoyt announced that a Town Meeting will be held at 4:00 in the Lilly Auditorium of University Library on October 27th. The purpose generally will be to discuss the strategic international development plan with its goals and issues, including the request for schools to respond with their specific international development plan keyed to the campus document. This includes specifically the development of an international curriculum. Ending with the vision of students joining hands across the globe, Hoyt solicited comments be emailed to him at ghoyt@iupui.edu


Agenda Item X: Revised Version of Change in Wording of Policy Regarding "Exam Policy Related to Final Exam Week" -- Jim Baldwin (Academic Affairs Chair) [INFORMATION ITEM: Up For Approval at the Next Meeting FC991104]. Baldwin began by noting the bathetic drop into the details of a policy out of the national heights of the urban portfolio, the international perspective, and beyond the year 2000.


Baldwin read the existing policy from page 161 of the Fall schedule: "Except for practical tests at the end of laboratory periods, written assignments (term papers, reports) and formal tests shall not be required in the week before the formal Final Examination period. Papers or projects may be due during this week only when assigned well in advance." And then reading again from the other column on that page: "An instructor giving a final examination before the final exam period should be reported in the same way." (That is, by "contacting the Office of the Dean of the Faculties").


Baldwin then explained that the Executive Committee had charged the Academic Affairs Committee to look at this policy and to determine 1) if it is good and 2) whether the wording is adequate. The committee thinks it is a good policy but that some changes are needed in the wording. He pointed out the suggested changes (see the attachment to the agenda) in the new wording, and recommended it occupy a more prominent spot than where it now is in the schedule.


Explaining that the policy is a survival of the traditional reading period before final exams, and that it was never meant to be used as a means of shortening the semester by a week.


Fredland spoke in favor of the policy even though recognizing that it is not widely enforced. Spechler noted that it is for the most part the underpaid part-time associate faculty who are the culprits, and that even though some students are inconvenienced they go along anyway, although they should inform the deans they are being short-changed. Baldwin noted that the responsibility for seeing that the policy is enforced rests with the students. Even if the class has only a midterm and a non-cumulative final, it should still be given during finals week and not the week before. Yokomoto noted that any exam during the final week, the week before finals week, is disallowed. Bostwick noted that the policy can be read from two different perspectives, the student's or the teacher's. It was therefore recommended that the word "required" be replaced by "given" to remove the confusion. Schneider noted that one of the reasons behind this was so as to not overburden students. Galanti called a halt to the discussion and announced that the item would return in November as a discussion and action item (vote). Suggestions should be emailed to Baldwin at jbaldwin@iupui.edu.


Agenda Item IX: Summary Report on October 5th Town Meeting on "IUPUI 2000 and Beyond" -- Ulla Connor (Campus Planning Chair) and the administrative perspective -- Gerald Bepko (IUPUI Chancellor and IU Vice-President) [INFORMATION ITEM: 10 Minutes]. Noting that Connor was not present, Galanti opened the topic for discussion. Bepko began but a fire alarm went off.


Agenda Item XII: United Way Key Club -- Ken Kopecky (IUPUI United Way Campaign Steering Committee) (Medicine: Radiology) [INFORMATION ITEM: 5 Minutes]. This was deferred until November due to the fire alarm.


Agenda Item XIII-XVI: Question / Answer Period, Unfinished or New Business, and Adjournment. Due to the fire alarm, Galanti adjourned the meeting at 4:55 pm.
