Why are we considering renovations to the arena when we have a swim team that doesn’t even have a pool to practice in?
There are reports that this may be President Delaney's last year with UNF. If that is so, should we not begin planning the process to find the next president? If not, could President Delaney tell us his plans for the future?
Vice President Tom Serwatka provided a response from the floor.
This is not President Delaney's last year. When President Delaney does decide to step down, there will be a plan for a search in sufficient time.
Is there a way to revise the procedure for gaining access to classrooms on campus such that a faculty member filling in for another faculty member will be allowed into the room by the campus police?
Vice President Shari Shuman provided a response from the floor.
If a faculty member is not attached to a course, there is a safety and security measure with allowing individuals access to classrooms who are not authorized users. A faculty member wishing to substitute for the faculty member of record for a course would need to have the Chair of the department call the campus police and inform them of the substitution. Shari Shuman will follow-up with the Chief of police to clarify the process.
Once a grade is posted, can a student petition the grade after it is posted, for example to change an "F" grade after the final exam to make the grade a "W."
Provost Earle Traynham provided a response from the floor.
Students are able to petition grades. The process involves review and recommendations by the faculty member, Department Chair, the College Dean, the University Appeals Committee, and the Provost. At each stage, recommendations regarding the grade change is determined and communicated to the student.
Is there a rule regarding who has voting rights at Faculty Association meetings, and is there a system to determine whether there is a quorum? This question relates to who has the ability to vote on academic programs and academic changes.
The Interpreting program requires that students only take 12 hours per semester. How will the 15 credit hour rule affect students in this program?
Those programs that allow students to take no more than 12 credit hours per semester would be exempt from the 15 credit hour rule to maintain scholarships. The 15 credit hour rule actually states that students must complete 30 credit hours per year; therefore, if a student does not complete 15 credit hours within one semester, the additional hours could be taken in another semester or during the summer term to satisfy the 30 credit hours per year requirement.
Is it true that students taking 12 credit hours will receive only 80% of their financial aid funding?
COEHS Interim Associate Dean, Jennifer Kane, provided a response from the floor.
Student grants are adjusted based on the number of credit hours they take, with the expected number of credit hours being 15 credit hours. Student scholarships are not affected by the 15 credit hour rule.
