Ann Caldwell summarized the actions of the previous Faculty Policies
Committee regarding part-time faculty and suggested follow up actions for
this year. The policy on pay
increases for part-timers with an emphasis on longevity was passed. We should try to insure that the
percentage of pay increases based on part-timers continues to go to
part-timers. We need to
follow up on being sure they are included in campus e-mail and personnel
directories and that they get parking stickers and picture I.D.s.
Harris reported Chip Matson said that any part-time faculty who do not
already have e-mail should contact the help desk to get set up. Jasper Cooke said they are now
getting parking stickers at half-price. Lee Ann and several committee members said they should
not have to pay. Another
suggestion was that those making under a certain salary amount not have to
pay or have a sliding scale. Paul will discuss this with President
Bloodworth. Wayne Mixon commented that departments can reimburse
part-timers. John Groves is
willing to issue picture I.D.s, but needs official notification from
Personnel as to who has been hired.
Bill suggested that department chairs could send copies of their
authorizations to John. Paul
will discuss this with V.P. Barnabei. It would be helpful if Personnel
could include the new part-time faculty policy with paychecks so all
partimers would be informed about it.
of the September 10 meeting were approved.
Hauger reported on the meeting of the Promotion and Tenure sub-committee
regarding the 20 page limit on supporting documents. It was agreed that an item on the
check off sheet where the department chair could verify achievements would
deal with most problems. The
sub-committee will draft a response for Paul to the faculty members who
reported that the President has objections to the Board of Regents Policy
Manual changes. He will
obtain clarification on this.
Program Review policy will be on the agenda of the next Faculty Meeting.
