FC Newsletter 4-19-02 ===================== Transitioning to the SEC - Lori Franz et al =========================================== They like us because of our AAU credentials. Chair's Report - Harry Tyrer ============================ Noah Herringman in Library Committee is preparing a survey vis a vis how spending cuts should be apportioned. NSEI - Sudarshan Loyolka ======================== Five meetings with the Provost. NSEI will stay intact for the time being. Long term are issues still being worked out. It is still not known what precipitated the initial problems. Election of Officers - Clyde Bentley ==================================== Chair - Harry Tyrer Vice Chair - Kattish Katti IFC Rep - Gordon Christensen Recommendations of the Online Academic Programs Task Force - Leona Rubin ======================================================================== Motion to accept report plus addenda. (See facultycouncil.missouri.edu/meetings/attachments/recommendations-of-the-online-academic-programs-task-force-4192012.pdf and facultycouncil.missouri.edu/meetings/attachments/addenda-to-recommendations-of-the-online-academic-programs-task-force.pdf) Q: SEC does not accept non-traditionally taught courses in Math and English for transfer students. A: Statistics suggest the opposite, that students who take non-traditional students tend to do better. A lot of other discussion concerning intellectual property issues, and whether this document helps clarify the issues. Many Chairs and Deans are concerned about lack of clarity with respect to revenue sharing and intellectual property. Friendly amendment - remove first addendum, because it doesn't bring any clarity. The vote is merely thanking the committee, not saying this is the last word. Passed by acclamation. Faculty Affairs (Clyde Bentley) =============================== Long discussions of the definition of faculty. More research to be done. Fiscal Affairs (Kattish Katti) ============================== Intellectual property issues. Social sciences have been left out, so they will be included. Student Affairs (Craig Roberts) =============================== Memorial for Mizzou vets issue is still ongoing. Plus/minus issue - an A+ doesn't cancel an A-. Final words =========== Think about issues to address next year.
