Faculty Council meeting 10/27/17

Dear Faculty:

 

Faculty Council will meet October 27, 2017 in the Molewski Room of the Campus Center at 2:10 pm .  Our agenda is as follows:

  1. Call to order
  2. Approval of minutes from October 6 meeting
  3. Chair’s report
  4. Report from Academic Affairs
  5. Reports from standing committees and subcommittees
  6. Old Business
    1. Continued discussion of Townhall responses from 10-6 (question on classroom furniture)
    2. Discussion of salary and health care benchmarking
  7. New Business
    1. Repository of division meetings minutes
  8. Announcements
  9. Adjournment

Much of the discussion at this week’s meeting will likely take place in the “reports” sections, so I thought I might give you some idea of what might be discussed there, as it is hard to tell from the agenda alone.  In the Chair’s report, we will discuss our meeting with the A and P subcommittee of the Board on October 6 and well as our meeting with Father Ryan on 10/23, during which we discussed IPARC and its purpose.  Although we will not have gotten to the phase where we are discussing the new Core proposal officially, I would think there will be some information from the C and T chair on that subject.  As always, all faculty are welcome to attend.

Update: C&T Meeting 10/20/17

The Curriculum and Teaching Committee met on October 20 in the SFCC Lipo Room.

We continued discussion of our charge to review the work of the Core Review Committee.  Our two sub-committees reported the work that they have been doing including reviewing the process of the Core Review committee and looking at high impact practices in general education.  We anticipate receiving a report from the Core Review Committee in the near future and will continue our charge from Council.

The committee also discussed the Arts CART report and will be submitting a memo to Academic Affairs with our recommendations.

C&T will meet again on November 3 in the Lipo Room.  As always, all our welcome to attend.

My thanks to the Committee.

Dave Reynolds – Chair

The last core review meeting of the academic year — and reaching back now four years — took place on Monday, October 23. The committee affirmed the proposal submitted to it by the Natural Science CART. The committee also discussed its final report to C & T and Faculty Council. That report should be ready for submission by midweek.

Chair’s update October 20th FB meeting

Chair’s update October 20th FB meeting

The minutes from the September 29th FB meeting were approved and are now posted on the Faculty Governance Webpage.

The committee was update on items pertaining to FB. The budget approved by the Board included enough to fund all steps and promotions for those that were eligible and for an increase of 0.75% to the Professor and Associate Professor salary scales and a 1.25% increase to the Instructor and Assistant Professor salary scales. According to Academic Affairs, faculty members that were eligible, but did not receive a step increase in 2015-16, did receive a step increase in 2016-17 and will next be eligible for a step increase in 2018-19. Wyoming Seminary is in control of the tuition discount given for King’s dependents as the program is much more heavily used by King’s employees than Wyoming Seminary employees. Kristin Fino will be attending the November 3rd FB meeting. Continue reading

Summary of A&P’s October 20, 2017 Meeting

A&P met on October 20. Topics covered included the following:

  • E-dossiers: Work on this continues. Academic and Instructional Technology staff will be asked to attend a future meeting to discuss options.
  • Division Restructuring Sub-Committee: Work on a faculty survey continues.
  • Composition of Standing Committees Sub-Committee: The sub-committee provided a summary of what was learned regarding the seating of committees at our comparison schools. Substantive discussion ensued with the agreement that it would be best to wait for the results of the faculty survey to be conducted by the Division Restructuring Sub-Committee before moving forward with a recommendation.
  • New Business: Raised was the question whether there should be student representation on standing committees. It was noted that the Faculty Handbook does call for a student to serve in an advisory capacity on C&T, though it doesn’t seem to be happening in practice. The Chair will speak with C&T leadership about this. Also raised was a concern regarding the transparency of the list of comparison schools used by administration when statements are made regarding faculty salary parity.

The next meeting of the A&P Committee will take place on Friday, November 3, starting at 2:10 p.m. in SF 115.
