NSF Announces Major Research Program 

The Office of Research and Program Development has recently received the NSF
Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program Announcement. This program
supports the acquisition or development of major research instrumentation at
U.S. institutions as well as the maintenance and technical support associated
with those instruments. Proposals may be for a single instrument, a large
system of instruments, or multiple instruments that share a common research
focus.  Proposals for computer systems, clusters of advanced work stations,
networks, and other information infrastructure components necessary for
research are encouraged.  The MRI Program supports projects that are generally
too costly for other NSF programs to support.  Awards will range from $100,000
to $2 million. There is a 30 percent match requirement which may come from any
private or non-federal public source and may be in cash or in kind.

UND is eligible to submit two proposals for instrument acquisition and one
proposal for instrument development. UND may also be included as a member of a
consortium submitting a separate proposal. Because we anticipate that many
departments will be interested in applying for these funds, we are requesting
that interested faculty submit a two to three page pre-proposal that includes 
a project description, a discussion of the impact on UND infrastructure, and a
project/management plan. Additionally, an estimated budget (one page) must be
attached with some indication of potential sources and amounts of matching
funds (NSF requires a 30 percent match).
Preproposals must be submitted to the Office of Research and Program
Development on or before Friday, Dec. 27. A committee composed of Marlene
Strathe (Academic Affairs), Harvey Knull (Graduate School), and myself will
review the preproposals and select up to three proposals for full development
-- two for instrument acquisition and one for instrument development. Full
proposals must be submitted to NSF by 5 p.m. on Feb. 20, 1997.

If you would like to receive a copy of the Program Announcement, call Colleen
at 7-4278.

If you have any questions, please call me at 7-4280 or e-mail me at
carl_fox@mail.und.nodak.edu. -- Carl Fox, Director, Office of Research and
Program Development.

Technology Fee Allocations Listed

New allocations for the spring semester from the Student Technology Fee are
listed below.  The Student Technology Fee, instituted last fall, is a $50 per
semester fee (pro-rated for part-time students)  which enables the University
to upgrade and purchase new computers and other technologies for student use.
Allocations are made by the Student Technology Fee Committee, convened by the
Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost.  A total of 47 proposals
requested $1.4 million in funding; $395,000 was allocated.

Funded were a Gillette Hall Instructional Lab and Student Lab, Mathematics
Computer Lab, Psychology Computer Lab, Speech and Hearing Science/Audiology
Lab, Geographic Analysis and Remote Sensing Lab, Introductory College
Physics/General Physics/Natural Science, and Inductory Astronomy course
classroom presentation equipment,  Philosophy and Religion Computer Lab, and
the Biology Instructional Lab. Also funded were the  McKay Information
Management Lab in Gamble Hall; Education Macintosh Lab; Aerospace Computer
Literacy Lab and UNIX lab server disk upgrade; Fine Arts Graphics Lab; Nursing
Room 108 classroom presentation equipment and Nutrition and Dietetics Computer
Lab; and Upson II Computer Lab/Upson I Computer-Aided Engineering Network
educational software.  The Chester Fritz Library and branch libraries were
funded, as was the Thormodsgard Law Library; the Student Financial Aid office
received funding, which  was recommended because of high need and the direct
benefit it would have on students.

For more information on the Student Technology Fee, contact the Vice President
for Academic Affairs and Provost office at 7-2167. -- Marlene Strathe, Vice
President for Academic Affairs and Provost.

EVENTS TO NOTE

Engineering Senior Design Students Invite Public To Finals

University of North Dakota Engineering students invite the University
community to observe the final presentations for their senior design class.
Members of the student organization, Society for Energy Alternatives (SEA)
will take advantage of the opportunity to demonstrate the progress they have
made in designing a solar-powered vehicle, the "Subzero."
Four design teams working on the vehicle are scheduled to make their final
presentations Friday, Dec. 13. The SEA will host a luncheon that day for the
project's sponsors.

Following are the presentation times; all will be held in 219 Harrington Hall:

10 to 10:45a.m. - Sunrayce Chassis Team
10:45 to 11:30 a.m. - Sunrayce Suspension Team
1 to 1:45 p.m. - Sunrayce Power Systems
1:45 to 2:30 p.m. - Sunrayce Body Aerodynamics

Other Senior Presentations that day are:
2:30 to 3:15 p.m. - Bolted Flange
3:15 to 4 p.m. - CFCFB-  Fluidized Bed

For more than a year, members of SEA have worked to raise money, design, and
build the "Subzero" in time to enter it in June's Sunrayce '97. Open to
college-level education institutions in North America, the Sunrayce challenge
is to design, build and race a solar-powered vehicle on a 1,230 mile state
highway course from Indianapolis, Ind., to Colorado Springs, Colo. The event
is sponsored by the Department of Energy, General Motors, and Electronic Data
Systems.

The challenge for UND's team is complicated by the fact that North Dakota has
never had a Sunrayce entry so there are no previous team's mistakes from which
to learn or past sponsors from whom to obtain financial support. Additionally,
road testing a solar car during north Dakota's winter months is virtually
impossible.

Funding for the project has come from regional corporations, small businesses
and private citizens. Among the biggest contributors are electric power
companies.

Expected to attend the luncheon will be representatives from Otter Tail Power,
Phoenix Industries of Crookston, Grand Forks Welding, Northern States Power,
Hansen Ford, Rydell Chevrolet, Bruce Hart's Repair, Dow Welding Supply
Company, Interstate Bearing, individual contributors, and interested UND
faculty, staff and alumni.

Vehicle designs are nearly completed and construction has begun. The "Subzero"
will be unveiled to the public in February 1997, tested at the Las Vegas Motor
Speedway during spring break in March, and entered in the Sunrayce in June.
For more information contact SEA President, Renae Patrick at 7-4110. -- Jan
Orvik, Editor, for Sunrayce Engineering students.

OF ACADEMIC INTEREST

Organizational Meeting Set For Women In Science

A group of faculty has been meeting informally to discuss women and the
sciences on campus.  At the next meeting we will decide our goals and tasks
for the next semester and perhaps for the longer range.  Some areas of
interest are encouraging women students to major in science-related fields,
doing outreach in the local schools, developing classes that integrate women
studies perspectives in the traditional sciences, and pursuing grant options.

If you are interested in any or all of these topics, please join us for an
organizational meeting Monday, Dec. 16, from noon to 1:15 p.m. in the Sioux
Room of the Memorial Union.  Feel free to bring your lunch.  For more
information, contact me at 7-4115 or e-mail to donaldso@badlands.nodak.edu. --
Sandra Donaldson (English), Director, Women Studies.
*******

Use Random Number When Posting Grades Electronically

Electronic posting of grades using the NAID or Social Security Number is
inappropriate because it violates a student's right to privacy, as defined in
the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, North Dakota State Board of
Higher Education policy, and University policy. All faculty are reminded to
use a randomly assigned number to post grades for students electronically or
in traditional ways. -- Alice Poehls, Director of Admissions and Records.
*******

Applications Sought For Norwegian Exchange Professorship

Applications from interested UND professors contemplating leaves for next year
are sought for the 1998 Ostfoldakademiet Professorship. This UND faculty
member teaches two courses at Ostfoldakademiet, Moss, Norway, in the spring
semester. Courses are taught using English and normally are numbered in the
200-300 range (i.e. sophomore or junior level, although other courses are
possible). The semester runs from late January through the middle of May. Help
in orientation and housing is offered through Ostfoldakademiet.

Ostfoldakademiet is a one-year tertiary academy approximately one hour south
of Oslo on the island of Jeloy. Norwegian high school graduates complete their
first year of university there prior to attending UND; UND students are able
to spend a semester or academic year there taking courses in various subjects.

D. Scott Lowe (Philosophy and Religion) will be the 1997 professor. Curtis
Stofferahn (1996) and Janet Moen (1995) (both Sociology) are the most recent
Ostfoldakademiet professors.

Interested persons should submit a current resume and syllabi for the proposed
two courses. Final selection is dependent upon the approval of the faculty
member's college dean; a letter from your dean will enhance your application.
Final selection will be made by the Ostfoldakademiet Professor Selection
Committee. Complete applications should be sent to: Thomas Rand, Associate
Dean of Arts and Sciences, Box 8038, no later than Dec. 15. Inquiries about
the position can be directed to either of the former Ostfoldakademiet
professors or to me at 7-3301 or Box 7109. -- David Marshall, Director of
International Programs.

UNIVERSITY SENATE

UNIVERSITY SENATE REPORT

University Senate began its regular monthly meeting Dec. 5 with Chair Sara
Hanhan (Teaching and Learning) presiding, but the meeting was not adjourned
but, rather, continued until Dec. 12 to complete input on the major agenda
item. Sixty-two of the current 79 Senate members attended the first part of
the December meeting, which ended at 6:02 p.m. after twice exceeding earlier
agreed upon adjournment times. Reports on proceedings follow.

Senate Presents Initial Responses
To Restructuring, Reallocation Report    
Informal discussion on a part-by-part basis of the report from its
Restructuring and Reallocation Committee occupied most of the Dec. 7 Senate
meeting after it was submitted for receiving and filing. Any reactions to the
report which Senate agrees upon at a Dec. 12 continuation of the monthly
meeting cannot alter the report as presented but will be appended to it when
it is forwarded to UND President Kendall Baker.

The committee was formed by Senate in March to fulfill an earlier charge to
initiate a permanent, ongoing way to involve faculty in University-wide
academic restructuring and reallocation planning and execution. The original
charge to Senate to create a vehicle for that purpose came from the University
Council, which had been asked by the University Planning Council to find means
for faculty input into the matter. UND as an institution was reacting to a
State Board of Higher Education mandate that North Dakota University System
institutions initiate and report on their progress and plans on academic
restructuring and reallocation.

The Senate R and R Committee met from July into November, concentrating on low
enrollment programs as per a mandate from the State Board of Higher Education
to pursue that area.  The committee reviewed  as many low enrollment programs
as it reasonably could,  it reported.

A draft of UND Academic Vice President and Provost Marlene Strathe's
preliminary recommendations on continuance or discontinuance of low enrollment
programs, as defined in terms of number of program completers, was the basis
from which the R and R Committee worked to develop its report. It contains 18
recommendations on low enrollment programs and also includes the committee's
rationale on each recommendation, impact on students and curriculum, and
VPAA/Provost Strathe's position on each program.

Five of the 18 recommendations drew Senate reactions, with the others being
passed over without comment. Most discussion was aimed at recommendations that
a minor in Greek be discontinued, that the Bachelor of arts degree with a
major in Latin be discontinued, and that formation of a Center for
Interdisciplinary Studies be investigated by a Senate task force.

At the Dec. 12 continuation of the regular monthly meeting, Senate expects to
try to reach points of concurrence on the R and R Committee recommendations
and forward them separately from the report to its prime recipient, UND
President Baker. The R and R Committee will continue to meet on other academic
restructuring matters.

The 12-member Restructuring and Reallocation Committee, chaired by Carla Hess
(Communication Sciences and Disorders), consists of the three elected faculty
members of the University Budget Committee, three faculty selected by the
Senate for its Faculty Advisory Budget Committee, a University Curriculum
Committee representative, two Senate Executive Committee appointees, a student
government appointee, a University Planning Council appointee, and the Vice
President for Academic Affairs and Provost.

Other Senate Business
Other business at the Dec. 5 part of the December Senate meeting included the
following:

Tabled until the next Senate meeting was a policy change regarding the
automatic suspension for two years of courses not offered in a three-year
cycle, with additional procedures for deletion or reinstatement of such
courses. . . The tentative list of candidates for degrees at UND December
commencement was approved for recommendation to the State Board of Higher
Education pending satisfactory completion of the present semester. . . Senate
approved recommendations from the Curriculum Committee for program
terminations and suspensions, a new program request, a title change, and new
courses. . . President Kendall Baker said he was pleased to report that just
earlier in the day of the Senate meeting, the presentation of North Dakota
Gov. Ed Schafer's executive budget recommendations for 1997-99 to a joint
session of the North Dakota Legislature included a $35 million increase for
higher education. That includes a 3 percent salary increase for each year of
the biennium, of which 1.5 percent will go across the board to all employees
and the other 1.5 percent will be distributed selectively to reward merit
performances, etc.  The governor also is recommending creation of a $3.2
million North Dakota University System wide pool to address additional salary
issues, such as rankings compared to national and regional standards. 
Further, President Baker announced, the Governor's recommendations include 50
percent matching funds for a proposed Biomedical Center (animal research
quarters) at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.  President Baker
emphasized that the recommendations are still only that and must still undergo
the usual legislative considerations in the 1997 session. In the same vein, he
said in response to a question about how firm the salary increase
recommendations are, that adjustments during the legislative process are
always a possibility.  President Baker noted that Gov. Schafer, in making his
higher education budget recommendations, praised UND for its efforts, stating, 
"The type of introspective exercise that has taken place at the University of
North Dakota is exactly what must continue to take place system wide." 

Senators present at the Dec. 5 part of the December meeting were Jeanne
Anderegg, James Antes, Kendall L. Baker, Albert Berger, Mary Brant, Chris
Carlson, Annie Claesson, Richard Crawford, W. Jeremy Davis, Sally Dockter,

FYI

United Way Thanks UND

Thank you for donating $71,000 to this year's United Way Campaign from the
United Way Board of Directors and the 34 health and human service agencies
that will receive funding. The 1996 United Way Campaign that was recently
conducted among faculty and staff raised nearly $71,000. While this year's
campaign fell short of last year's total of $73,500, the UND drive is still
the largest employee campaign for the United Way of Grand Forks, East Grand
Forks and area.

The campus-wide drive was chaired by Vice President of Academic Affairs and
Provost Marlene Strathe. It takes the cooperation of many individuals and
departments at UND to conduct such an extensive campaign. We thank not only
UND donors but also, the Payroll Department and all of the other volunteers
who coordinated the individual department drives. -- Jan Orvik, Editor, for
Pat Berger, President and CEO, United Way of Grand Forks, East Grand Forks and
Area.

Christmas Tree, Decorations Require Careful Use

You can prevent most holiday fires through careful selection and safe handling
of the Christmas tree.  Here are some basic safety tips for maintaining a safe
tree.

Artificial trees are acceptable for decorating purposes.  Live trees must have
prior approval from the UND Safety Office and must be treated to comply with
fire codes.  If you plan to have a real tree, please contact the Safety Office
for instructions before purchasing it.

Select a location that's away from heat and drying sources, such as registers
or radiators.  Do not place the tree where it might be in a path or exit, or
block a doorway.

Inspect lights and other electrical decorations before putting them up.  Look
for frayed or bare wires, cracked sockets, loose connections and damaged
insulation.  When you leave the office for home, be sure to unplug all of your
decorative lighting.

After the holidays, the sooner you remove the Christmas tree and take down
decorations, the better.  The longer the tree stays up, the more of a fire
hazard it becomes. -- John Glass Jr., Director of Safety.
