Present: Bozak, Jalife, Murphy, Shaffer
* Minutes of November 28, 2007 were reviewed.
* Update on the pledge: Provost's Council has endorsed it. I've
discussed it with Nate Emmons (Orientation) who in turn discussed it with Kathy
Evans, who in turn discussed it with Jim Scharfenberger. I spoke with Jim this
morning, who believes that everyone who has seen it likes the idea. He hopes it
can get into the catalog and used by Admissions asap. He will speak with Joe
Grant about it.
I've also spoken with Sue Camp, who believes Faculty Assembly should review
the pledge. She will speak with the FA Executive Committee about how to
proceed. I'll contact Sue to talk about the best way to proceed, coordinating
FA and President's Council. It would be good if both could discuss it and
support it by spring break.
* Paloma suggested that we get a simpler URL (oswego.edu/integrity) in order
to make it easier for faculty to find the sanctions guidelines. I'll pursue
this. If the pledge comes to pass, then that would likely be additional
pressure to use this simpler URL.
* The new judicial affairs officer, Lisa Evaneski, starts at Oswego in
February 21. I will invite her to join our group.
* Bozak's priorities for the semester are two parts of the website outline
(see 10/17 minutes): the annotated policy (which he will do) and getting
several (ten? dozen?) personal reflections on integrity (see 2nd bullet in
* Other topics that should go on our agenda at some point include handling
faculty violations of integrity (plagiarism, for example); graduate student
issues; how to get faculty to adhere to the policy and report violations
(Paloma suggests working on a simplified description of policy/procedure);
getting onto the new faculty orientation calendar (Barbara is part of COLT and
will bring this up).
* We also discussed hosting an informal brown-bag lunch during a college
hour after spring break where faculty can share war stories and talk about
