Anonymous Question for Marc Snow:
With the increasing use of technologies on campus, our students have the capable of taking photos and recording conversations without the knowledge of a faculty member. During the office hours, students’ recording of a conversation can be taken out of context and be used against a faculty member. Since UNF cannot provide a witness present in every faculty office, will administration consider banning the practice of secret taping on campus?
Response from Marc Snow:
This is automatically banned under current policy and recorded conversations are not admissible in any type of hearing.
Question to Marc Snow from Faiz Al-Rubaee:
Does this include taping in the classroom?
Response from Marc Snow:
Taping in the classroom is up to each faculty member and faculty should be asked by students prior to a student taping a lecture.
Comment from Kathy Robinson:
Kathy talked with President Delaney who
indicated that if anyone would bring a complaint about a taped class, UNF would
not consider only a portion of the comment, but would take the whole lecture in
Response from David Courtwright:
If a student has a disability, this may create an exception. However, perhaps thinks we should ban all taping in the classroom. It also has an effect on what other students may be willing to contribute to the class.
One concern is to whether a student may be posting a recorded conversation on the Internet.
A written response will be forth coming from the general counsel’s office.
Anonymous Question for Shari Shuman:
Why is it necessary to hold cars that have been booted for 20 days prior to having them towed?
In some instances, booted cars take up valuable parking spaces, such as on the
first floor in a garage or a 30 minute spot in the circle near building one.
Response from Shari Shuman:
Current parking regulations reflect this procedure. The BOT must approve all parking regulations. The time period used to be 30 days. It often takes students a while to get the resources to pay to have the boot removed. One thing we have discussed is to tow the car to lot 18; however, this will be an expense we will have to pass onto the student. We do have the ability to go to the president to have a car removed if it is obstructing a right of way.
