Agenda: 
  1. Welcome new ARC member(s)
  2. Discussion of AR15 in preparation for presenting to the Faculty Senate
Minutes: 

Welcomed new ARC member Keith Baker.  Updated him on history and current status of AR15

Nancy Barbour will present Academic Regulation 15 in Faculty Senate meeting next week (May 11).

We discussed what needs to be in the presentation:

  • Reasons for needing change
    • Want a policy that is easier for faculty to use, and improves the due process and fairness to students.  At the same time we need to ensure fairness for faculty as well.
  • Needs to address :
    • Level of detail in the AR as opposed to in the procedures
    • Concern for taking “ownership” away from the faculty
    • Concerns and responses from faculty as previously solicited (see Meeting Notes 4-19-17)
  • College Head Officers (CHO’s) are trained
  • Detailed follow-up/assessment of new policy in a year

Nancy will prepare a presentation to share with us (the ARC) to review and will meet one last time before the Faculty Senate meeting.
