The Dean reported the Chairs responses to the 10 to 15 percent reallocations were anger, concern about the MA program, increase in teaching loads, inability to offer multiple tracks, under funding to the college and resentment of the Administration.
The Dean explained the Kentucky Council on Post Secondary Education will be here in March. She has asked for a report from Dr. Shapiro.
The Kentucky CPE will mandate MA have a graduate rate of no less than 5 and a BA a graduate rate of no less than 12. If a program falls below this figure admission to the program could be suspended.
The Dean suggested that the minimum class enrollment be strictly enforced. If a full-time professor's class is cancelled the professor would teach a class scheduled to be taught by a part-time professor. If there were no classes available in the professor's discipline the professor would teach an entry-level class in another A&S discipline.
The committee was asked to examine all the programs with an eye to making up the 10% cut and to generate a 5% raise pool. The committee was asked to keep in mind the Challenge for excellence. The committee was asked to make a report to the Dean by the first of February.
