III. FA Chair’s Report – S. Camp
The chair began her report by welcoming everyone in attendance and introducing the new FA clerk, Stephanie Bischoping. She reminded everyone to speak loudly in order to be heard in the new venue.
During the final meeting last May, FA approved a process for governance consultation prior to program deactivation or discontinuance. This is in reaction to the Faculty Senate Resolution and the Chancellor’s agreement that consultation must occur and meet our procedures. (see form) http://www.suny.edu/provost/academic_affairs/ProgramProposalGuide.cfm. President Stanley has not approved the consultation procedure and promises to provide revised wording to be considered by FA.
She continued by announcing that she met with several members of APC, Grad Council, Undergraduate Curriculum Council to discuss the emerging philosophy on what should be required of various new academic programs such as combined BA/Graduate degrees. The discussion will continue during the fall semester. In addition Dr. Camp has asked the Personnel Policies Council to consider a by-laws amendment to give voting rights to professional staff that teach. Adjunct professors who teach for six consecutive years are able to vote, but there is no amount of time after which professional staff who teach are able to vote.
