Item 6Student Conduct Code  

The purpose of this item is to present to the Board of Trustees amendments to the Student Conduct Code. Significant changes are:

  • In Section (E) 1.2 a change was made so that language would be consistent with our Sexual Harassment and Equal Opportunity and Diversity regulations.  
  • In Section (E) 4.0 a change was made so the language was consistent with our Weapons and Destructive Devices on Campus Policy.  
  • Section 1.2(g) was added because of the new requirements of Title IX that require universities to provide victims of sexual assault, sexual battery and related acts to have the ability to appeal a decision reached through the Student Conduct process.  

 

This regulation has followed the standard university promulgation process and is being presented to the Board of Trustees for review and approval.

Item 8 Activity and Service Fees, Athletics Fees, and Health Fees

Item 9Transportation Access Fee  

The purpose of this item is to present the transportation access fee for 2012-2013. The students requested a new shuttle route to the Town Center.  Based on the number of hours the shuttle would run, the cost would increase the per credit hour fee by $0.23 or a total fee of $4.08.

Item 10 Parking Permit and Citation Rates for 2012-2013  

The purpose of this item is to present the parking permit and citation rates for 2012-2013. Proposed changes are: 

 

Given that current permit and citation rates can cover current debt service requirements and the overall operational costs of the parking program, increases to permit and citation rates are not recommended for 2012-2013. 

A recommendation is being made to combine the two permit categories “Designated” and “First Floor Garages” into one permit called “Faculty/Staff” and to sell this permit at a 1.6:1 ratio at a rate of $250. 

 

The parking permit and citation rates for 2012-2013 was proposed by a university-wide committee and endorsed by the President, and is being presented to the Student Life and Facilities Committee for review and approval. 

 

Vice President Shuman will address the committee and present the parking permit and citation rates.   

 

Proposed Action: Approval. Motion and second required. 

Item 11 Approval of a Modification of the UNF Wetland Mitigation  

The purpose of this item is to present, for approval, a modification of the UNF wetland mitigation.  On January 18, 2011, the Board approved a memorandum of agreement with the St. Johns River Water Management District that identified wetland mitigation areas on campus and restricted those areas for conservation.  The construction of the northeast connector road will impact wetlands on campus, and an additional mitigation area is required by the Water Management District. The university and the district have identified an approximately 9-acre mitigation parcel as shown on the attachment.  To accomplish the additional mitigation, an amendment to the memorandum of agreement is required. The form of the amendment has been approved by the Office of the General Counsel. 

 

Associate General Counsel, Chris Wrenn, will address the committee and present the modification of the UNF Wetland Mitigation. 

 

Proposed Action: Approval. Motion and second required.
