Minutes of the January 14 meeting were approved.
President Fred Barnabei presented an update on PeopleSoft Financials;
detailed information is attached.
Dodd mentioned that the press release on ASU ranking in the Top 20 Schools
list for community service should be clarified because there is concern on
campus regarding the statement that “Augusta State committed 34.4
percent of its work-study funds to community service jobs.” Dr. Barnebei said that includes
things like the ASU Writing Center.
up on Cullum Review Committee: Bill Dodd proposed that Faculty Policies
should create a sub-committee to look into this and make recommendations
to Dr. Bompart. Paul Harris
appointed Jana Sandarg as chair of the sub-committee, with Donna Hobbs,
Roxann Bustos, Janice Williams, Helen Hendee, Joe Cotter, Jeff Heck,
Melissa Williams, and Steve Whittle as members.
Dodd’s report: He talked to Rose Axton to clarify what is needed for
the Distance Learning Committee.
He made a motion that the Committee be made a standing committee
and that they be requested to write their charge. The motion was seconded and
Harris distributed a memo from Jim Benedict and the University Promotion
and Tenure Committee on Promotion and Tenure application documents. FPC will consider the memo and
include it in documents to be passed on to next year’s FPC.
Secretary: Charles Jenks of
the College of Education has agreed to take on the job of Faculty
Secretary beginning in the fall.
Until then the Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic
Affairs will handle the responsibilities of the Faculty Secretary.
Affairs Committee: Bill Dodd
will have this ready for the next meeting.
from Debbie Van Tuyll regarding textbook requisitions: The Bookstore said the misleading
statement (“faculty who take on a class for another professor agree
to take on the text that professor has selected”) is a historical artifact
and will be removed.
next FPC meeting will be Monday, February 4 at 3:00 P.M. in the
President’s Conference Room.
The meeting adjourned at 4:30 P.M.
