Kelly, that sounds really good to me.
Ryan Harrod (he/him)
24:57
I agree with Megan
Rachel Graham
25:48
I also agree with Megan and the compromise Kelly proposes
Toby Widdicombe

I also
Veronica Howard (they/them)
33:35
Has there been an inquiry/update with Paul Layer regarding an update on the Canvas LMS Pilot currently taking place with UAF eCampus leading?
Gökhan Karahan
34:34
Not really. However, I think it is important to bring some clarity about it before the end of our contract period
Gökhan Karahan
34:46
Next week we do have a meeting with Paul Layer. I will ask
Toby Widdicombe
35:05
I agree, Gokhan
Veronica Howard (they/them)
35:13
Thank you Gokhan!

Michelle, this is a really small thing, but the risk assessment plan has a multiplication error in it (it has 2 x 3 = 5). I only mention this because it seems like it changes the risk assessment from low to medium for that item.

The Fall Technology Survey was delivered by ACDLITe in partnership with UAA IT Services, the UAA Student Success Advisory Committee, and Faculty Development and Instructional Support,
Veronica Howard (they/them)
57:12
Of particular note in the survey results, to the question "My courses mostly contain materials, slides, or homework systems created by a publisher (Pearson, McGraw Hill, etc.) rather than by my instructor.", 22.9% of respondents indicated "strongly agree", 26.1% indicated "somewhat agree".
Patricia Fagan
58:04
Thank you, Tuan!
Kelly Smith

Veronica, Gokjan, and Lorelei
Claudia Lampman
01:05:32
Well said Veronica.
Kitty Deal
01:06:20
Well said, Veronica! I appreciate your statements of support of eLearning, student voices, and OERs!
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:08:02
Hear, hear, Tuan!
Rachel Graham
01:08:44
We are in this together and student voice is very important.
Claudia Lampman
01:08:49
Thank you Tuan!
Claudia Lampman
01:09:07
I will make the results available widely next week!
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:11:12
Development and instructional support :D
Ryan Harrod (he/him)
01:11:13
Thank you for giving the students a voice Tuan
Rachel Graham
01:11:15
Thank you, Lorelei! I will look for those results and would love to see any comparisons that can be made.
Anthony Paris
01:12:44
Hi Tuan, Could you make your slides and the data available? Thanks, Anthony
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:13:07
It was a massive survey this year, including students, staff, and faculty: 55 questions, 1500+ respondents. Data analysis is "ongoing" :)
Nalinaksha Bhattacharyya
01:13:51
What is the definition of Student success?
Shawnalee Whitney
01:14:09
Each of the bodies that Claudia Lampman mentioned include faculty across colleges and campuses.
Claudia Lampman
01:16:02
Anthony, I will make these slides available widely next week.
Lora Volden- Student Affairs (she/her)
01:16:22
Well said Rachel- thank you
Megan Gobeille
01:16:44
Yes Rachel!
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:17:00
Well said, Rachel!
Jackie Cason
01:18:57
Yes, Rachel. Agreed. I’ve tried to reinforce that theme in teaching: “we’re learning together and adapting to a pandemic, and the best we all can.” Students seem to appreciate us recognizing this is not normal, but we’re making it work, together.
Toby Widdicombe
01:19:54
If we hadn't taught online for the last 2.5 semesters, what would we have done? Correspondence courses?
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:20:25
To support Shawnalee, faculty WANT to teach well, they WANT to build dyanamic, amazing online courses. But faculty can't make those changes without resources and support. I hope Faculty Senate would be willing to speak to the need to support faculty in developing robust pedagogical interventions, regardless of the modality.
Toby Widdicombe
01:21:12
Exactly right, Tuan
Gökhan Karahan
01:21:30
Veronica: Agreed. Faculty have had a really tough time over the last few semesters...
Shawnalee Whitney
01:21:36
Absolutely, Tuan! We're on the same team!
Jeffrey Johnson
01:21:49

Lora Volden- Student Affairs (she/her)
01:31:31
It's a matter of "resident" credits for graduation. Correct Kelly. No cost difference
Denise Runge
01:31:48
Link to current policy
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:31:49
Many thanks to committees who conducted this work! I appreciate the additional flexibility that these revised policies would provide for each program to determine what evidence of competence looks like in their sequences.

Lora Volden- Student Affairs (she/her)
01:33:33
For baccalaureate degrees they must do 30 credits in residence with 24 upper-division.
Lorelei Sterling
01:33:43
Thanks Lora!
Anthony Paris
01:34:45
Thanks Lora, is there a similar policy for graduate degrees, MS and PhD?
Jackie Cason
01:35:36
That’s correct Veronica
Gökhan Karahan
01:44:31
I get confused about all this
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:44:32
I particularly appreciate the option to streamline CIM work for first-time additions of programs. Our department has spend a significant amount of time on the conversation, and it's not always easy to adjust an old, inaccessible PDF into the cim system! Thank you for this policy proposal. :)
Lora Volden- Student Affairs (she/her)
01:44:43
@Anthony Paris. Not written the same way. What becomes more meaningful is that your can only transfer 9 credits not used toward any other degree for a master's degree.
Gökhan Karahan
01:46:30
Than k you Greg
Sharyl Toscano
01:48:47
I don’t recall and amendment
Lorelei Sterling
01:51:50
@Heidi I private messaged you, did you not get it?
Veronica Howard (they/them)
01:55:50
@Erin - MANY THANKS to the Diversity Committee. This work is impeccable and so, so important right now.
Veronica Howard (they/them)
02:00:29
Can I "fifth" then?
Patricia Fagan
02:01:11
Excellent resolution!
Sharyl Toscano
02:03:03
The issue procedurally seems to be that the committee is sharing a resolution they passed but not presenting a specific resolution for us to approve.
Ryan Harrod (he/him)
02:06:38
Thanks Erin!
Ryan Harrod (he/him)
02:09:35
Yay!
Gökhan Karahan
02:09:51
Thank you Erin and Thomas and committee
Kimberly Pace
02:10:20
Congratulations!
Nate Hicks
02:10:31
Nothing further from RCAC beyond our written report.
Jeffrey Johnson
02:10:38
Nothing from Community Campus Committee. Thanks.
Toby Widdicombe
02:16:41
The first document I mentioned was the Inclusivity Hiring Checklist on the Diversity Office's website.
Claudia Lampman
02:26:58
With faculty and Dean salary, it is important to take into account that there are disciplinary differences in salary and disciplinary differences in gender. When you control for discipline the gender difference gets smaller or goes away (at least it did in the past). I don't know how that applies to staff.
Anthony Paris
02:28:53
I probably missed it, but were 9 mo. vs. 12 mo. salaries taken into account?
Toby Widdicombe
02:30:04
Yes, Anthony. I believe so.
Veronica Howard (they/them)
02:30:15
$5,000 annually across a 45 year career is $225k...
Rachel Graham
02:33:09
building on what has been said, it would be interesting to look at the difference of beginning offers too, but I am not sure if that data exists
Emily Cahoon (she/her)
02:33:15
Anthony - We could not account for those who had 9 mo vs 12 mo salary. That was definitely a limitation of the dataset.
Leslie Byrd (she/her)
02:34:07
We were very limited in the data we had access to, and again we recognize the flaws in our processes, so we accept any and all suggestions, recommendations, offers to help.
Gökhan Karahan
02:34:41
I am willing to give you all hand as soon as the semester is over

Emily Cahoon (she/her)
02:35:03
Thank you Leslie - I want to echo those comments. We would have really liked to compare salary to years of service but do not have access to that latter info.
Ryan Harrod (he/him)
02:35:23
Rachel I think you might be able get that data. Initial appointment letters in tenure and promotion packages.
Holly Martinson
02:35:52
Emily and Toby this is a much needed study. I think it would be interesting to also include years of service for professors in addition to initial appointment salaries.
Megan Gobeille
02:36:31
And split by field.
Jackie Cason
02:37:29
@Holly. I agree. I was wondering not only about starting salaries but the fact that women sometimes cycle in and out of the work force, (given frequent family responsibilities), so years in service might give us a better understanding of what we’re dealing with.
Leslie Byrd (she/her)
02:39:10

The library has also experienced an unexpected budget reduction from Student Technology Fees, partially funded by UTC, with more cuts coming next year. Access to Library Resources makes a lot of amazing research and pedagogy possible!
Shawnalee Whitney
02:45:10
The Consortium Library keeps a list on the top of their website re: the items that have been cut. ConsortiumLibrary.org

UAA received $17.8M for all of our campuses to date. Anticipating $21.7M more under the American rescue plan of 2021 - roughly half will go directly to students as grants.
John Petraitis
02:51:30
I can answer the question about CircleIn. It will be renewed for next year this summer (at no additional cost) and next year. Evaluation data will be collected to see if it should be continued after that. We have plans to integrate it into first year student onboarding. I can share additional data soon.
Megan Gobeille
