48 »97 Course Change (CC) forms »11 Experimental Course (EC) forms (informational only) The Campus Curricula Committee moves for the approval of this report’s DC and CC forms. Campus Curricula Committee Report June 19, 2014

49 »1 Name Change (NC) form The Department of Geological Sciences and Engineering (GSE) proposes changing its name to the Department of Geosciences and Geological and Petroleum Engineering (GGPE). The Budgetary Affairs Committee has approved this NC form. The Campus Curricula Committee moves for the approval of this report’s NC form. Campus Curricula Committee Report June 19, 2014

50 Current Experimental Course (EC) policy: An EC form must be submitted before an experimental course is to be offered. EC forms approved Spring 2009 or later allow the course to be offered twice at any time during the following three year period. After an experimental course has been offered twice, a CC form may be submitted to request a permanent course number. Proposed EC policy: An EC form must be submitted before an experimental course is to be offered. An EC form allows an experimental course to be offered unlimited times during the five year period following its approval. A CC form may be submitted to request a permanent course number, if that course has been offered experimentally at least two times during the preceding five year period. The Campus Curricula Committee moves for the approval of this proposed EC policy. Campus Curricula Committee Report June 19, 2014

54 Personnel Committee Personnel Committee has considered three issues related to the NTT faculty. Hiring Promotion Termination

55 Committee found out that there's an inconsistency in the intent of having NTT faculty and details of these processes. CRR H clearly states that NTT faculty appointments are usually 1- year contracts and cannot be more that 3 years. (This clause conveys a short-term association.)

56 E states a hiring process that are (almost) identical to the tenured/tenure- track faculty F states qualifications that are (almost) identical to the tenured/tenure- track faculty I states performance evaluation procedures that are (almost) identical to the tenured/tenure-track faculty. (These clauses convey long-term associations.)

57 K states a detailed (336 words) promotion process that's similar to the tenured/tenured-track faculty. (This clause also conveys a long-term association.)

58 J states the termination process as a 3-month notice or less time under extenuating circumstances. (This clause clearly conveys a short- term association.)

59 The Personnel Committee's sentiment was that the inclusion of more protective steps during the termination would make the NTT and the regular faculty processes practically identical. (In that case, the only difference becomes the range of their responsibilities.)

60 Committee decided to: 1) simplify the hiring and the promotion processes, 2) strengthen the termination process slightly by requiring an explanation, and 3) stress the point that the intent of hiring NTT faculty is to have short-term solutions to teaching and research needs, and tenured faculty should be sought for long-term strategic goals.
