1- Pomona Letter in Support of DACA
Delaney has SIGNED.
2- Vote of No Confidence in President/VP Process
The bylaws change will be voted on at the next FA meeting. Committee members agreed that only
full-time faculty can vote.
3- Syllabi Bank for Students:
Rakita and Pyati met and discussed the “Syllabi Bank” with the SGA’s project manager. They have been invited to a further discussion with SG about their ideas. The implication of “Syllabi Bank” on CANVAS also will be discussed.
1- Unity Statement:
Changes requested by Delaney were reviewed and approved. Pyati suggested to move forward for consideration of full-faculty association. However, Hochwald disagreed to add the term “resolution” to the title. Committee accepted his point.
2- Outstanding Faculty Community Engaged Scholarship award language:
The current language of the award requires a member of the QEP Management Team to
serve on the committee. Committee members agreed to edit this with the phrase: “a faculty member selected by the Director of the Center for Community Based Learning.”
3- Make-up Exam:
Ingersoll suggested that there must be a timeframe for the make-up exam (e.g. two weeks). Pyati said the make-up exam policy must be discussed with the office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity (EOD). Hochwald mentioned that we do not have an exam policy. Rakita and Pyati also stated that Academic freedom must be considered in any policy. Committee agreed to further discuss this matter with executive committee.
4- Campus Climate Survey:
Ingersoll mentioned that many questions are unclear and the answer can be interpreted as either positive or negative. Hochwald said it means these issues are important and need to be discussed. Rakita mentioned that the questions must be kept similar each year to be comparable. Klostermeyer and Ingersoll will work on edits and consult with M. Binder (Polling Center).
5- Research Survey update & recommendations discussion:
Fenner said that he received considerable response from faculty and he is working on the first draft of the Research Statement. Rakita and Ochrietor will work with Fenner on the draft.
