Agenda Item# 2 - FA 08-42: Submitted by the Academic Programs Committee
COAS/Student Affairs – Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) Program: New Courses & Programs of Study (19 items) & supporting letters Arturo Sάnchez-Ruỉz moved the item.The motion passed.Friendly Amendment from Dale Clifford: Dr. Clifford believes the intent is that these courses may not be used to fulfill the 120 hour graduation requirement. For each course on the APC 1s, there should be a statement that says, “This course may not be used to fulfill the 120-hour graduation requirement.”Response from Arturo Sάnchez-Ruỉz: The amendment is up to the floor to decide to send it back. The Committee accepts the amendment.Comment from Nancy Levine: Nancy believes this item should go back to committee because the Military History course has been removed. Dale Clifford: It appears that the APC packet was not very clearly put together. A list of all the courses included in this program appears to be missing. The Military History course is still on the list, though not in the packet. The purpose is to get the entire program into the system, not accept it just because it is an APC 1. Request from Arturo Sάnchez-Ruỉz to have Dr. Levine clarify the question.Response from Nancy Levine: There are many questions about the program. The concern is about what is missing from the APC such as where the program will be housed, such as a statement from SGA about the location, and other issues. Question from Lisa Jamba: The packet includes only a portion of what is posted on the web as it relates to this program and APC. The entire program is listed on the web. What does ‘incomplete’ mean? Question from Jason Mauro: If the APC program is in the packet, does it meanthat it has been approved by the APC committee? Response from Arturo Sάnchez-Ruỉz: The forms were presented to APC and discussed by the APC Committee in the summer. A subcommittee was assembled to visit to the office sponsoring the program to improve the forms, which resulted in the final APC forms. All steps of approval have been followed.Question from Jason Mauro: Did the APC Committee approve it?Response from Arturo Sάnchez-Ruỉz: Yes.Comment from Tayeb Giuma: This item appears to need to be investigated more closely. A motion was made to refer the APC back to Committee from Tayeb Giuma: Discussion of whether to send back to committee: Comment from Arturo Sάnchez-Ruỉz: Arturo suggests that we vote against it.Sending it back to the APC Committee doesn’t change it. The APC Committeehas already approved it. Comment from Scott Hochwald: The detail on the web should be in the packet. Scott believes it should be sent back to committee because no enough informationis available to vote on it today.Question from Gordon Rakita: if the body sends back, what will the APCCommittee do differently? Response from Arturo Sάnchez-Ruỉz: In Arturo’s personal opinion, everything is done. It is ready to be placed on agenda.Comment from Jason Mauro: It doesn’t make sense to send back.Call for question made by Chris Rasche. A motion was made to send the item back to Committee. The motion failed and will not be sent back to Committee. A call for question for item by Chris Rasche: A motion was made to send the item back to approve the item with the friendly amendment.

In the initial complaint, he requested a change from “may report” to “shall report.” Why are those inside the University not required to report someone who has knowledge? The change does not reflect Dr. Coulter’s request.Response from Chip Klostermeyer: The intent was to omit those from outside the University from being required to report since we are unable to control their actions. Friendly amendment from Neil Coulter: Individuals inside the University have an obligation to report plagiarism and outsiders ‘may’ report plagiarism. Chip Klostermeyer accepted the friendly amendment. Question from Lisa Jamba: Why do we have to reference a third party? Response from Chip Klostermeyer: A journal editor may identify plagiarism which is an outside party. Question from Neil Coulter: Why does the policy give the Faculty Affairs Committee the complete control of the process? Does the Provost have the authority to act upon the Faculty Affairs committee’s recommendation? Response from Chip Klostermeyer: Adjudication is separated from the process. The Provost has the ability to act on the decision of the committee. Question from Donna Mohr: One group that might observe faculty misconduct is graduate students who might be timid to report. Are they covered under the ‘shall’? Response from Chip Klostermeyer: We don’t have the mechanism to enforce a sanction on then. Call for the question.The motion passed.
