1 Report of the University Faculty Senator

2  Changes to UFS bylaws  Resolutions  Student Mobility (draft) resolution discussion  RAM/RAT updates and presentations

3  Bylaws revisions (Governance Committee) — Two amendments to revise the bylaws, to be voted upon at the Winter 2013 Plenary:  —to clarify quorums and voting procedures for actions taken by the Senate during special electronic meetings &  —to recognize an Expanded Executive Committee which includes the committee chairs in an advisory role; elimination of term limits for immediate past-president and secretary; clarification of sector representation on Executive Committee

4  Moral support resolutions

5  [ Three Whereas clauses precede ]  “Therefore, be it resolved that the SUNY UFS strongly urges the administration to create a substantial pool of transition funding that would be made available for a number of years sufficient for these campuses to support the evaluation, planning, and timely implementation of the changes necessary to garner the resources distributed through the Resource Allocation Tool.”

6  Students are guaranteed, by Board of Trustee’s policy:  *Transfer of at least 60 credits toward the bachelor’s degree  *Up to 30 s.h. of general education courses in 10 subject areas  *No repeat courses with the same (at least 70%) content  *Transfer to at least one SUNY 4-year campus

7  Major Requirements in the first two years: 37 transfer paths (58 majors) in the most popular disciplines— Covers 95% of transfer within SUNY: Transfer Pathways’ website & links: https://www.suny.edu/student/transfer/transfer_mobility_all.cfm https://www.suny.edu/student/transfer/transfer_mobility_all.cfm  140 core courses defined by faculty committees—over 400 faculty from 2- and 4-year campuses  Nearly 15,000 courses in the mobility database  Since no SUNY campus offers all 140 core courses, SLN/Empire State can help students get access to core courses not offered on their home campuses. These courses are guaranteed to transfer to SUNY campuses

8  Seamless Transfer is supported by current policy, but students must take the right coursework : At least 7 of 10 Gen Ed categories + at least 4 courses in the major (and cognates) = Seamless Transfer Transfer Pathways’ website & links: https://www.suny.edu/student/transfer/transfer_mobility_all.cfm https://www.suny.edu/student/transfer/transfer_mobility_all.cfm Student Mobility contact at System Administration is Dan Knox—Student Mobility Project Coordinator: Student Mobility Page for students and advisors: https://www.suny.edu/student/transfer.cfm https://www.suny.edu/student/transfer.cfm

9  18 of 26 state operated campuses have adopted 7 of 10, 30 credits; 2 moved to 7/10 summer 2012; remaining campuses require 10/10  Provost’s resolution supports his goal that 2- and 4-year campuses should move toward accepting AND requiring  7/10/30 + Guaranteed core courses (and cognates) in the major (with an A.A. or A.S. degree)

10  Policies to enhance completion & success to include *Required registration for developmental education from first semester on *Required class attendance for first-year students *Limited withdrawals and course repetitions *Required approval for class schedule registration *Required mid-semester grades/reports for high-risk students *Required early declaration of program/major and definitive cut-offs

11  President O’Brien summed up the many questions and concerns by saying [ close paraphrase ], Campus-specific additional GE requirements are fine as long as receiving institutions (undergrad, baccalaureate) do not impose burden on allowing students who DO complete 7/10/30 in GE and pathways courses as they seek to graduate in four years.

12  Research and Other Doctoral (8): (overall increase of 1.8%, $10m) 3 “gain”—largest by 11% 5 “lose”—largest by 18.6%  Comprehensive sector (13): (Overall decrease of - 4% ($7.1m) 3 gain—largest by 5.2% 10 lose—largest by 21.6%  Technology sector (8): (Overall decrease of -4.3%, $2.7m) 3 gain—largest by 13.2%5 lose, largest by 27%
