  1. Seeks to maintain a holistic overview of the University’s technology facilities and resources;
  2. Facilitates and evaluates Western’s investment in academic and information technology facilities and resources to help ensure that they effectively and efficiently serve the University’s strategic activities and the academic requirements of students and faculty;
  3. Reviews, assesses, and communicates the technology needs of faculty and recommends priorities;
  4. Provides advice, guidance, and support to the Information Technology Services organization of the University and to other units considering investment in or the adequacy of technology resources impacting teaching, learning, and research;
  5. Participates in the dissemination of technology and cybersecurity policy and best practices to the Faculty; and

  • recommends strategic priorities to the Student Technology Fee Committee to aid in their review of proposals;
  • shall be afforded the opportunity to advise and provide guidance on the acquisition and introduction of new and advanced technologies to assure effective use of technology and improved access to information resources; and

  • BL7.6.1 Membership.

    The membership of the Academic Technology Committee shall be as follows:

    Voting members:

  1.

    The committee shall have a Chairperson and a Vice Chairperson who are elected by the committee’s membership from its faculty membership at the first committee meeting of each Fall Quarter. In the absence of a continuing Chairperson, it is the responsibility of the Vice Chairperson from the previous year to call the first meeting of the Fall Quarter.

    BL7.6.2 Executive Committee

    The Executive Committee of the ATC shall be made up of the Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, and the Vice Provost for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer.

ACC Minutes of 23 January 2018

The Senate Executive Council recommended separating consideration of Academic Coordinating Commission (ACC) minutes of 23 January 2018 from that of the ACC’s motion to accept the Global Pathway Programs (GPP) proposal of the GPP Academic Working Group. A motion (forwarded by Judy Pine and seconded) to accept the Executive Council’s recommendation and to accept ACC minutes of 23 January 2018 with the exception of the GPP motion passed unanimously.

 

 
Global Pathway Program Proposal

Senators discussed the Academic Working Group Global Pathway Program (GPP) proposal contained within the ACC minutes of January 23, 2018. A Senator expressed concern regarding the ethics of having a lower GPA requirement for GPP participants, specifically regarding the potential personal costs to a GPP participant who is admitted to Western, but not able to succeed. A meeting participant suggested that it may be useful for Western to consider more holistic admission standards and rely less on GPA. President Giffen drew attention to GPP recruitment materials already posted online. Concern was raised that the marketing materials were published in advance of Senate action on the GPP and that the materials may be misleading.

A motion (forwarded by John Lund and seconded) to approve the Global Pathway Program proposal passed unanimously.

Amendment to BL7.3

Senator Yvonne Durham forwarded a motion (seconded) to strike mandatory ACC maintenance of the Admissions Committee, currently charged as the Recruitment, Admissions and Support Committee, and the International Programs Advisory Committee from Bylaw 7.3.4 of the Faculty Constitution: Committees and Reportage of the Academic Coordinating Commission. In discussion, it was clarified that the removal of mandatory oversight of the Admissions Committee from ACC’s charge would not preclude ACC’s ability to charge such a committee or consider items related to recruitment and admissions. Oversight of the International Programs Advisory Committee was terminated by ACC and the Faculty Senate during the 2016-17 academic year, but ACC’s charge has not yet been amended to reflect this change (see ACC minutes of January 24, 2017). The motion passed by unanimous vote. The language of the amended bylaw is as follows:

BL7.3.4 Committees and Reportage

The ACC shall maintain the following standing committees: the Committee on Undergraduate Education, the Council on University Programs, Graduate Council, and Honors Board. The memberships of these committees are approved by ACC, and membership requirements are published along with the charge in the ACC Handbook and on the Faculty Senate website. Curricular Committees of the Colleges, including the Teacher Curriculum and Certification Council and the Western Libraries Curriculum Committee inform

The Faculty Senate Office will notify faculty of the proposed amendment to Bylaw 7.3 via email. Faculty are encouraged to review and provide feedback on the amended charge. Faculty Senate expects to conduct the second vote on the amendments to BL7.3 at its meeting of May 21, 2018.
