Chair's Report Kim Tanzer, Chair

Professor Tanzer reported that the Faculty Senate office renovations are now
complete. There will be a nomination period for new members to Senate, Joint and
Presidential Committees later this week. Professor Tanzer described Sustainability Day on
October 26, 2005. UF is the first campus to receive an Audubon Sanctuary certification. The
sustainability committee has arranged to participate in a nationwide Web cast and will award
Dr. Machen with the Audubon certification during the day long series of events.
Cammy Abernathy, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of
Engineering, met with Professor Tanzer to discuss the ABC nuclear reactor story. There is
no threat to U.F. If senators have questions they may forward them to Professor Tanzer or
ask during the question period at the end of the meeting.
The shared governance task force is meeting regularly and working towards building
common practices. John Leavey, Chair of the English Department, and Pramod
Krargonekar, Dean of the College of Engineering, are the co-chairs for the Humanities
working group.

Provost's Report Janie Fouke, Provost

Dr. Fouke reported on the ongoing searches for new deans in HHP and DCP. The
search for a new dean of the College of Fine Arts will begin in the Spring after a report from
the cultural plaza committee in December. To aid the search for a new admissions director
the University hired a company with experience looking for admissions directors.
The PeopleSoft working group is still working towards finding solutions regarding
PeopleSoft issue. Faculty members had a lot of questions following the budget meeting.
The Dean's meeting in December will focus on the Budget. Dr. Fouke asked for
volunteers to serve on a committee to evaluate endowed chair policies at peer institutions.
Currently, UF does not have an endowed chair policy. This committee will work to create an
institution wide policy for handling endowed chairs.

Information Items:

UF Regulations Report Chris Snodgrass, Chair Constitution Committee
Dr. Snodgrass reported on two proposed changes to the Honor Code. The proposed
changes will be posted approximately on November 1st, 2005. There will be a 14 day period
to write to the general counsel's office regarding suggestions or requesting public hearings.
After 30 days if there are no public hearings scheduled and if the rules are not withdrawn the
Board of Trustees will pass on it.
The new honor code revisions will add definitions of plagiarism and academic
dishonesty. The changes will also give students an appeal mechanism.
The constitution committee created operating procedures for itself. These operating
procedures govern how the committee will handle considerations for constitution, regulation
and by law changes. The goal is to streamline the process of making changes.
In order to inform the senate about issues the BOT will vote on in December and
April, the constitution committee will have the issues as information items in the November
and March meetings. The constitution committee needs all changes requested by October 1st
and February lt. The constitution committee does not initiate policy. It only responds to the
Faculty Senate. Nothing happens unless the faculty senate requests it to happen.

Master Plan Linda Dixon, Manager, Planning Office

Linda Dixon gave a report on the Master Plan. The Master Plan includes the main
campus and the 13 satellite properties. There will be a public workshop in November 2005,
the Master Plan will go up for approval by the B.O.T. in December and in the April B.O.T.
meeting it will get final adoption. There will then be a 30 day petition period. Following final
plan adoption, the university will enter into a Campus Development Agreement with the
City of Gainesville and Alachua County. Three committees worked to create the Master
Plan: the Master Plan steering committee, the Conservation Study Committee and the
Transportation Study Committee.
The Web site has more information about the Master Plan:
There is also an e-mail distribution list. If any one is interested in joining the list
there is a sign up option on the Web site.
