                                                Open Session resumed at 2:23 p.m.

 

Motion 3                                MSF Bedford, Brannick:

Whereas, at least one member of the Faculty was told that English Department members were ineligible to run for the Senate because of the 2-member per department rule, and

Whereas, this opinion is incorrect: the rule applies only to elective members, and

Whereas, the ballot circulated on March 4, 2002 was therefore inappropriately biased,

Therefore, the Faculty Senate declares the ballot of March 4, 2002 to be invalid, and requests that another call for elections be circulated.

Motion failed.

This will be presented for Senate Action on March 18, 2002.

 

Chair of the

Committee on

Committees:                         Chris Barkley announced that due to April Woods' resignation as the Committee on Committees chair, she would like to appoint Anne Voth for the position. This will be presented for Faculty Senate ratification on March 18, 2002.

 

Academic Standards

& Practices:                         Joe Stanford reported that the results of the survey on the Hiring Practices Policy are available for review. The Academic Standards & Practices Committee has scheduled a joint meeting with the Superintendent/President, the

Vice Presidents for Instruction, Student Services, Human Resources, and  members of the faculty on Thursday, April 11, 2002 at 2:00 p.m. to discuss the proposed changes to the policy.  It is hoped that many of the issues raised in the survey as well as other faculty concerns can be addressed and resolved at this meeting.  The tier system and follow-up questions during the interview process are just some of the important issues to be presented. Brief discussion followed.

 

Strategic Planning

Survey:                                  Chris Barkley reported that the Strategic Planning Survey has been distributed. There was some discussion in the Senate on creating a list of suggested priorities; however, due to time constraints there won’t be sufficient time to go through all of the items individually. It is hoped that faculty participation in completing the survey will be high, by both contract and adjunct faculty members. If faculty members did not receive an email with their password code, they should contact Lorie Sousa at lsousa@palomar.edu for their personal code.

 

Faculty Award:                     Chris Barkley reminded Senate members of the recent distribution announcing the Faculty Award. Nominations of students must be submitted to the Student Activities office no later than April 12, 2002. Faculty members are asked to include a statement of support with their nomination.

 

Statewide Academic

Senate Resolutions:            Chris Barkley announced that the Statewide Academic Senate Resolutions for the Spring Session are available for review in SU-30. The meeting will be held April 4 – 6, 2002. A new Position Paper on the role of faculty members in planning and budgeting, as well as all of the resolutions from the fall session are just some of the items available for review.

 

Out of Area

Designation:                         Chris Barkley reported that she delivered the letter from the Faculty Senate to Dr. Amador regarding Palomar’s designation as an “out of area” school. Dr. Amador has indicated that she and the president of Mira Costa meet with Dr. Weber of San Diego State University and Dr. Gonzalez of Cal State San Marcos regarding their opposition to the designation. The end result is that the established cutoff will be a GPA of 2.65. Brief discussion followed. Senate members agreed that if any additional restrictions are added, the Senate should be informed in a timely manner.

 

President’s Advisory

Council:                                Chris Barkley reported that the President’s Advisory Council has accepted the Senate’s recommendation to add “Faculty” to Coordinator of Professional Development on the Strategic Planning Council. The document is currently being sunshined.

 

Pre-Board/Agenda

Meeting:                                Chris Barkley indicated that the Pre-Board meetings are now being held as Agenda-setting meetings rather than just discussing items which are being sent to the Governing Board. She added that the Governing Board Agenda has been sent out, and one issue currently being discussed is the recommended action to approve the resolutions terminating academic employees. There is uncertainty with the budget because of the recommendation to cut Matriculation and CalWorks areas which have faculty on the payroll. There is hope that the current letter-writing campaign to legislators will get the budget restored. If that does not happen, hopefully the college will pick up those salaries out of growth funds or out of our reserves. Discussion followed on the importance of exploring all options before letting anyone go.

 

Faculty Meeting:                 Reporting on the March 6, 2002, Faculty Meeting, Doug Key stated that the main issue of discussion related to the issue of the proposed changes to the Faculty Hiring Policy. He also announced that the unapproved minutes of the faculty meetings will now go out in rough draft approximately one week after the meeting is held rather than waiting to present them at the following meeting, usually at least a month later.

 

ADJOURNMENT:               The meeting was adjourned at 3:30 p.m.

 

                                                Respectfully submitted,

 

                                                April Woods, Secretary
