The faculty senate met Oct. 6, 1999, in Jonas 110 at 3:15 p.m.
Members in attendance: Tim Steckline, Steve Babbitt, Barb
Chrisman, Randalei Ellis, John Glover, Tom Hills, Charles Lamb,

Tom Hills moved approval of minutes for Sept. 15, 1999,
meeting and John Glover seconded. Minutes were approved.
President Steckline distributed copies of the senate
constitution. We are to check for corrections before distribution
will be made to faculty.
The general education committee recommendation for the
institutional requirements totaling 15 hours was provided to the
members present. We made fixes to numbers and discussed some
omissions. Margaret Lewis is reviewing the copy before it will be
distributed to the faculty at large. Steckline will try to
schedule a faculty forum on the 18th or 19th
Charles Lamb presented the recommendations for appointments to
the various faculty senate committees. After some discussion Tom
Hills moved the approval of Laura Turner to curriculum committee
and Richard Gayle, Fred Heidrich, Larry Tentinger to the general
education committee. The terms for all of these people will end
in 2002. John Glover seconded the motion. Motion passed.
John Glover moved the approval of Nicolas Wallerstein and
Marvin Bunch to the distinguished faculty award committee and
Monte Robinson to the campus safety and facilities committee
(this committee is a vice-presidential committee with faculty
representation.) Rob Schurrer seconded the motion. Motion passed.
Wallerstein and Bunch will serve until 2002 and Robinson will
serve to 2001.
Tim Steckline indicated that Dean Holly Downing has held a
meeting of the committee revising the student opinion survey.
There is to be a core of questions which will be used everywhere.
Committee work continues.
Catalog copy was due to Pat Chastain by Friday, Oct. 1, 1999.
The current catalog does not have the student attendance policy
which was passed by the senate last year. A check of the minutes
of the senate indicates the wording to be different than that
which appears in our minutes. President Steckline will pursue
this issue with Dr. Cook in order that the appropriate wording
will be in the new catalog.
A discussion of the Sales & Solicitation
Policy which was distributed via e-mail to the faculty was
discussed. Its implications for the faculty were a concern. It
was announced that this has been enforced with student(s)
already. However, Haislett has announced that the policy will no
longer be applied until attorney's have reviewed it. The senate
will await the results of this review before pursuing this issue
The meeting adjourned at 4:20 p.m. Respectfully submitted.
Barb Chrisman, recording secretary.
