����������������������������������������������������������� APPENDIX 2

����������������������� ��� University Faculty Senator�s report to the Faculty Senate

����������������������������������������������������������� Feb 13, 2007


I wanted to let you know that the Chancellor has been working well with the Faculty Senate � in fact, consultation was held with our President, Carl Weizelis, during the budget preparation and submission process.I�ll keep you informed as he informs us of items he feels we need to know about.


Faculty Senate Committees:First � a �heads up��during April nomination forms are

generated for faculty on our campuses to serve on Faculty Senate committees.Committee members transportation is paid, you get to talk to other campus reps, and create resolutions and various work products which advance the SUNY system as a whole.I tried to get nominees last May (after I was elected) but wasn�t successful � so hopefully you will put the idea in your colleagues� heads this year and be ready when I canvass for nominations.Committees include:Undergraduate programs and Policies,Graduate Committee,Operations Committee, Student Life committee, and sometimes ad hoc committees formed to meet a specific need.


The committee I�m on (Undergraduate) has, as its major focus this year, the preparation of a guide for internships system-wide.I have given the draft to John Shirley for his comments.If anyone else would like to read and comment on the draft � I�d be happy to send you a copy.The table of contents (showing its scope) will be attached to my report

For this meeting�� (mention some of the major points).


One thing which this effort brought to our attention is that the formula for �seat time� (or

whatever you wish to call it) is being modified by distance learning, internships, etc.We

are following a very old memorandum of understanding (early 1970�s) to get the �credit hour to contact hour� formula.We even discovered that the memo quotes the �Carnegie unit�..which the Carnegie website totally disavows (says it was never developed for use in colleges!)I believe our committee will work with Provost Palm to come up with some updated formulawhich makes sense in today�s world.
