Resolution 2009-2010-01 Promotion Stream for Instructors/Lecturers

Whereas, instructors and lecturers are actively engaged in teaching at UCF, and

Whereas, instructors and lecturers are integral parts of many UCF departments, and

Whereas, instructors and lecturers currently have no formal promotion stream at the university, and

Whereas, instructors and lecturers should have incentives to excel, and

Whereas, at least five other universities in Florida and many others nationwide have created promotion streams for instructors and lecturers, and

Whereas, such promotions would make UCF competitive for the highest quality educators, and

Recognizing that this resolution will need to be bargained between the UFF and the UCF Board of Trustees,

Be it resolved that the UCF Faculty Senate recommends that the UCF administration develop policy and procedures giving all full-time instructors and lecturers an opportunity for advancement. Promotion could be in the form of a title change (EX: Lecturer to Instructor) or via a "career ladder" with levels within a given title (EX: Senior Lecturer, Master Lecturer, Level 1 Instructor, Level 2 Instructor) and should be accompanied by an appropriate salary increase.

Approved by the Faculty Senate on November 19, 2009.
Transmitted to Provost Terry Hickey on December 9, 2009.
Approved by Provost Hickey on January 15, 2010.

Resolution 2009-2010-02 Electronic Promotion and Tenure Dossiers

Whereas, given current advances in electronic storage and future developments, and

Recognizing that this resolution will need to be bargained between the UFF and the UCF Board of Trustees,

Be It Resolved that the Faculty Senate recommends that the University look into the feasibility and security of using electronic storage and distribution for the dossier used in the process of tenure and promotion decisions. The consideration of this methodology might include the use of a pilot program.

Approved by the Faculty Senate on March 25, 2010.
Transmitted to Provost Terry Hickey on March 26, 2010.
Approved by Provost Hickey on March 30, 2010.

Resolution 2009-2010-03 Florida Retirement System Benefits

Given that it figures into faculty decisions to take employment in Florida and at UCF,

Be it Resolved that the Senate Chair and other faculty shall communicate to the appropriate parties that the UCF Faculty Senate strongly opposes any reduction in Florida Retirement System benefits and other retirement programs.

Approved by the Faculty Senate on March 25, 2010.
