to change the name of the major from Athletic Training to Athletic Training & Rehabilitation Studies

Facts: 

- The shortened curricular change cycle dictates that course and/or program change materials be completed, and reviewed by Faculty Senate during September.

The School of Kinesiology, Allied Health, and Human Services submitted a proposal to reorganize into two departments; Kinesiology and Heath, Recreation, and Community Services.  Departmental reorganizations and name changes require Council of Provost and Board of

Regents approval. In order to meet the annual schedule of those external committees, which follows that of the curricular process, all proposals that require Board approval must be approved by Faculty Senate at the beginning of the Fall semester.

Action: 

Therefore, be it resolved that the Senate accepts for voting to docket and initiating discussion, all materials relating to the KAHHS reorganization.

Fall 2017 UCC - 2 Programs, New Majors

Calendar Item: 
1343
Docket Number: 
1231
First Name: 
Michael
Last Name: 
Walter
Facts: 

 - The shortened curricular change cycle dictates that course and/or program change materials and documentation must be approved by various levels of UNI administration (Depertmental, Bugetary Review, College Senates, UCC/GCCC, Faculty Senate), before the Provosts Office can send documentation to the Board or Regents (BOR) Office, thence to ASAC, COPs and finally for BOR review.  The BOR calendar constrains the Fall approval process and therefore all supporting documentation for curricular changes must complete review by Faculty Senate during September.

On August 23, 2017 the University Curriculum Committee (UCC) reviewed and approved the following new programs for their university-wide implications:

1. ENVRESMGMT-BA: Environmental Resource Management BA - Interdisciplinary    2. ENVSCI-BS: Environmental Science BS – Earth and Environmental Sciences

The entire packet was approved (pending any changes noted in UCC minutes).

On August 21 The Graduate College Curriculum Committee (GCCC) reviewed: 

1.  Suspension for MA in Spanish degree program.  The entire packet was approved (pending any changes noted in GCCC minutes) by the Graduate College.  Program is being suspended tentatively for two years.   Justification: Student applications and enrollment decreased considerably during last three years.

2.  Termination of the Post-professional Masters of Science degree/Master of Science in Athletic Training.  The entire packet was approved (pending any changes noted in GCCC minutes) by the Graduate College.  Program is being terminated.  Justification: Due to the need to meet standards with accrediting bodies.  National Athletic Trainers Association Board of Directors and Commissioners of the CAATE (accrediting body) has established new regulations for the professional degree in athletic training at the masters level. Due to this newly established accreditation requirements, the Post Professional Masters of Science in Athletic Training needs to be discontinued.

Draft Proposal to Move to a Consent Agenda for Senate

Calendar Item: 
1337
Docket Number: 
1227
First Name: 
Michael
Last Name: 
Walter
Facts: 

Written mostly by Gretchen Gould, Immediate Past Chair, UNI Faculty Senate.  Minor edits by MHW, current Chair.

   This is a proposal to amend the UNI Faculty Senate Bylaws Section 7.4 addressing the order of business each Senate meeting should follow.   The intent of this proposal is to move routine and/or non-controversial items to a consent agenda.  This will allow Senate to take care of routine issues efficiently and easily so that more time can be spent on substantive matters.  A consent agenda process would allow UNI Faculty Senate to review and group routine and/or non-controversial items and adopt these items all at one time without debate.  At the beginning of each Senate meeting, a consent agenda will be presented by the Senate Chair. Items may be removed from the consent agenda on the request of any one senator. Items not removed may be adopted by general consent without debate. Removed items may be taken up either immediately after the consent agenda or placed later on the agenda at the discretion of the Senate.  The following is loosely based on procedures followed by ISU’s Faculty Senate.

I. Call to Order

II. Call for Press Identification

III. Consent Agenda

a. Minutes of Faculty Senate Meeting – dates of minutes

b. Emeritus requests

c. Docket calendar

d. Other routine and/or non-controversial items?

IV. Announcements and Remarks

a. President Nook

b. Provost Wohlpart

c. Faculty Chair Kidd

d. Senate Chair Walter

V. Unfinished Business

VI. New Business

VII. Good of the Order

VIII. Adjournment

Action: 

Be it resolved that the UNI Faculty Senate will discuss and vote to approve or reject a change in Senate Bylaws Section 7.4 addressing the order of business each Senate meeting should follow.   This change moves routine and/or non-controversial items to a consent agenda.
