Jay Coleman
Interim Associate Provost
 or
Marianne Jaffee
Executive Assistant to the Provost 
QUESTION SYNOPSIS- I:

 “I think it would be helpful, since we’re doing a new ISQ method, which we see if there are any differences between going totally online and what we did before, in terms of response rates, in terms of means on particular questions, in terms of demographics of students who are answering the questions. So, when you get a chance, could you try to make those comparisons, maybe from last fall – you know, the previous fall? That would be helpful. Thanks.”

Everett Malcolm, chair
2013-14 Parking Advisory Council   
QUESTION SYNOPSIS-III
There are two business models out there – the Jaguar one and the Wal-Mart one.  And I’d like the parking services to be the Jaguar one, as opposed to the
Wal-Mart one, so that when the premium spaces go on sale, that if you have one of those, especially if you’re faculty and staff, you get the invitation to keep it, as opposed to being told, ‘You have 30 minutes to get online, buy it, and if you don’t make it, you can park way away.’   I’ll let you know I didn’t make it; I’m late all the time; and if I’m serving on any committee with you, I will be later.”

 John Delaney, UNF President 
QUESTION SYNOPSIS-III:
“At a recent Faculty Association meeting you were asked about the growth of administrators at UNF over time. You indicated that the university’s overall jump in administrative numbers was due to the use of director titles. Why then are we filling the position of Director of Academic Technology in ITS when Kathy Hughes retires when we already have an AVP of Academic Technology in Academic Affairs?  Would you consider revisiting this decision since it appears somewhat redundant and presents us with an opportunity to save some money as well as eliminate one director position from our numbers?”

  Academic Affairs   

QUESTION SYNOPSIS-V
Are academic administrators who are on 12-month contracts and drawing administrative stipends expected to work full-time hours? Has telecommuting now become acceptable for academic administrators? Are academic administrators allowed to take days off during the week for research, which is not part of their contractual work-load? When academic administrators take time, should they be taking vacation or sick-leave? Should they be taking vacation time when they go to conferences or lead compensated study-abroad trips which are not part of their contractual work-load? Are you concerned about the culture that is created when such administrators only appear on campus only 15 to 20 hours a week?

 Asst VP Academic Technology 
QUESTION SYNOPSIS-VI:  

Was the Academic Program company accepted due to an appropriate *RFP process?  If so, when was the information pertaining to the RFP released and who sat on the RFP committee?  The state apparently forbids the hiring of a company that one does not go through a proper RFP process.   

If we did not go through an RFP how valid is his and what are the repercussions?
