CAS II WILL BE RENAMED BRYCE STREIBEL HALL
The University of North Dakota's Center for Aerospace Sciences building long
known as CAS II will be renamed Bryce Streibel Hall. A request from UND to
rename the building was approved by the North Dakota State Board of Higher
Education at its regular meeting Friday, Feb. 20. At its January meeting, the
State Board of Higher Education approved renaming the building known as CAS I
after UND Aerospace Dean John Odegard, who founded UND's aviation program.
The former member of the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education and
long-time member of the North Dakota House of Representatives and then the
North Dakota Senate has made significant contributions, not only financially,
but also of his own time and talent to benefit UND.
In the early development of UND's aviation education program, Odegard called
on Streibel, a rural Fessenden, N.D., native, on many occasions for
assistance. Streibel made at least 10 trips to Washington, D.C., to seek
federal funds for the Aviation Department. He initiated the drive to procure
more than $2.5 million of federal funding to purchase a Citation II Cloud
Physics Platform, which placed UND as one of the leaders in national weather
modification research. Through his initiatives and with the support of North
Dakota's Congressional delegation, Streibel was appointed by Secretary of
Commerce Juanita Kreps to the National Weather Modification Advisory Board.
Streibel spent considerable time and his own money on lobbying efforts for
federal funding, not only for the Citation II research aircraft, but also for
the Center for Aerospace Sciences building and for other research projects
that have been very important to the growth and development of UND's aviation
education research programs.
Streibel has a long record of public service, serving for many years as a
member of the North Dakota House of Representatives and for many sessions as a
strong and effective House Majority Leader. After retiring from service in the
House of Representatives, he was later elected to the North Dakota Senate.
During the interim, from 1977 to 1981, he served as a member of the State
Board of Higher Education.
In 1973, Streibel was called on by President Tom Clifford for his counsel and
assistance with respect to a serious medical education problem. It was no
longer possible to transfer the UND School of Medicine's two-year graduates to
other medical schools around the nation to complete their four-year graduate
degrees. North Dakota was at a crossroads. Streibel at the time was both
Majority leader and chair of the 15-member Legislative Council Committee. He
used his leadership to appoint an interim committee to bring recommendations
to the next session of the Legislature. He appointed a fair-minded and
balanced bipartisan committee which, in working with UND and the medical
community, brought into the legislature a recommendation for the establishment
of a four-year medical education program. His leadership was crucial at this
time for medical education in the state. The importance of having a four-year
medical school has been confirmed: approximately 50 percent of the practicing
physicians in North Dakota have received some or all of their medical training
In the years since 1974, Streibel has donated approximately $2 million to
benefit UND. In 1982, June and Bryce Streibel, with an irrevocable charitable
remainder unitrust, gifted their farm real estate to the UND Foundation. This
gift will provide substantial scholarship awards in the future to deserving
and needy students from North Dakota. The Streibels want a special emphasis
placed on scholarships for students from rural North Dakota communities who
are pursuing a medical education.
Streibel also contributed his magnificent stamp collection to the UND
Foundation. Presently on display in the UND Chester Fritz Library, the stamp
collection is conservatively valued at more than $400,000.
In 1976, Streibel was awarded the UND Alumni Association's highest honor, the
Sioux Award, in recognition of his outstanding public service accomplishments.
Streibel and his wife June are members of the UND Foundation William Budge
Society, the Foundation's highest level giving club. He is a founding fellow
of the Fellows of the University of North Dakota, Inc. He was the first
recipient of UND's Beta Gamma chapter of Theta Chi fraternity's "Outstanding
Alumnus Award." He is a charter member of the UND Athletic Department's Legacy
Club. Streibel is an annual contributor to UND, and over the years has
anonymously and quietly provided financial assistance to needy young people to
help them receive a quality education at UND. The Streibels have annually
funded other scholarships for aviation students.
-- Kendall Baker, President.
STUDENTS CAN STILL PURSUE TEACHING DEGREES IN SPEECH, MUSIC, PHYSICAL
EDUCATION AND SPANISH
The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education on Feb. 20 approved a UND
request to terminate four Bachelor of Science in Education degrees: speech
education, music, physical education and Spanish. However students will still
be able to pursue teaching careers in these areas at UND.
There currently are two paths for pursuing teaching degrees in these four
areas, and that is sometimes confusing for students who are trying to decide
which path to take. What the Higher Education Board's action does is allow us
to eliminate duplication in degree programs. Elimination of the duplicate
education degree programs continues a process which began more
than a year ago.
Students who want to prepare themselves to teach and obtain teacher
certification in speech, music, physical education or Spanish can still do so
at UND by pursuing baccalaureate degrees in each of those areas. There won't
be any problem for students and there won't be any change in their
opportunity. In many ways this change makes the choices and opportunities more
clear. Someone wanting to be a music teacher, for example, won't have to
decide between the two different majors.
The State Board of Higher Education also approved converting three minors in
technology into a single minor in Industrial Technology. Again, the
opportunities will remain the same for students, only the name of the minor
will change. -- Kendall Baker, President.
LEROY SONDROL, LARRY ZITZOW PROMOTED
Effective March 1, 1998, LeRoy Sondrol, in addition to his duties as Director
of Plant Services, will become Assistant to the Vice President for Facilities
Planning. This appointment will utilize Sondrol's considerable talents in the
planning of the major projects that are currently under way or in development
for the University. This restructuring will relieve Sondrol of many of the
day-to-day Plant Services management responsibilities and will allow him to
focus on four key areas: flood restoration and recovery; major summer
projects, particularly steam line repair and storm sewer construction;
development of the Bronson property; and the planning of the new Animal
Quarters building at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
Also effective March 1, Larry Zitzow will be designated Interim Director of
Physical Plant. Zitzow will report to Sondrol.
"These changes recognize the talents and dedication of two outstanding Plant
Services employees, and will also help reduce my physical plant duties and
allow me to focus on my new duties in the area of Finance," said Hoffarth,
Vice President for Finance/Operations. Hoffarth, UND's Vice President for
Operations since 1983, became Vice President for the newly restructured
Division of Finance/Operations on Feb. 1.
-- Al Hoffarth, Vice President for Finance/Operations.
WILSON APPOINTED TO NATIONAL ADVISORY PANELS
H. David Wilson, Dean of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, has been
appointed to two national committees dealing with medical education.
He will serve a three-year term on the Advisory Panel on the Mission and
Organization of Medical Schools, sponsored by the Association of American
Medical Colleges (AAMC). Comprised of medical school deans, hospital
administrators, AAMC staff members, basic scientists, physician-educators and
others, the panel was named by Jordan Cohen, AAMC president.
The panel serves in an advisory capacity to the AAMC on issues including
professional ethics, research, professionalism, diversity, affirmative action
and other concerns in the realm of medical education. It has produced a
document concerning the organization and objectives of medical schools.
The group, chaired by Dartmouth Medical School Dean Andrew Wallace, is charged
to be "kind of a 'think tank' for the AAMC," Wilson said. Its two dozen
members will discuss matters of concern to the general public and seek input
from thoughtful and authoritative guests to clarify ethical and social
responsibilities of those in the practice of medicine.
Wilson also has been asked to serve on the Section on Medical Schools
Governing Council for the American Medical Association (AMA). The eight-member
committee is charged with making recommendations to the AMA Board of Trustees
about issues concerning medical schools and medical education. It consists
primarily of deans and senior administrators of medical schools.
"Working with this committee will provide me with insight into what's
happening on the national scene," Wilson said. "It allows the perspective of
the community-based medical school to be heard in deliberations on medical
education in this country."
Wilson's participation in such groups is a benefit to the UND School of
Medicine and Health Sciences, he said. These activities afford him an
important learning experience, as well as exposure to the most pressing issues
on the national scene.
All expenses incurred in connection with his attendance at these groups'
meetings will be covered by the AMA and the AAMC.
Wilson also has agreed to participate in a group, organized by the University
of Kentucky, which will study departments of family medicine in U.S. medical
schools. The group will conduct a study, funded by the federal Human Resources
and Services Administration, which is aimed at analyzing how these departments
are financed, their general health and well-being, and problems they currently
His involvement will continue for about a year, he said.

Recommendation from the TFEMS that the UND Constitution (II.1.b.) be
changed so that Clinical Instructors, Clinical Assistant Professors,
Clinical Associate Professors and Clinical Professors with full-time
appointments, who are employed primarily on the Grand Forks campus, will
be members of the Council.
10) Continued discussion of the tabled and revised recommendation from the
Task Force on Tenure and Promotion to synchronize the review processes for
promotion and tenure decisions in the same academic year by inclusion of the
following separate statements: "Promotion reviews (p.4)/tenure reviews (p. 9)
will take place in the Fall semester. When a faculty member is being reviewed
for tenure and promotion during the same academic year, the faculty member may
submit the same supporting materials for both processes." [This statement
would appear both in the section on promotions and the section on tenure.]
(See attachment to February 5, 1998 agenda.) Al Fivizzani, Chair.
11) Recommendation from the Task Force on Tenure and Promotion to establish
a procedure to extend the probationary period for tenure review in cases of:
a) childbirth or adoption, b) significant elder or dependent care obligations,
c) disability or chronic illness, d) circumstances beyond the control of the
faculty member that significantly impede progress toward tenure. (See
attachment to February 5, 1998 agenda.) Al Fivizzani, Chair.
The wording of the new procedure reads: "Under certain circumstances a
faculty member may request a one year extension to the probationary
period. Such a request is normally based upon one of the following: 1)
responsibilities with respect to childbirth or adoption; 2) significant
elder or dependent care obligations; 3) disability or chronic illness;
4) circumstances beyond the control of the faculty member that
significantly impede progress toward tenure. A request for extension
based upon childbirth or adoption is normally approved. More than one
request may be granted because of childbirth or adoption."
A request for an extension of the probationary period will be submitted
at any time but no later than the first month of the academic year in
which the review for tenure is scheduled to occur.
For requests for extension, the faculty member submits the request to
the chair of the department who may consult with existing departmental
governance bodies before approving or denying the request. Requests
approved by the department are further reviewed by the academic dean and
the Vice President for Academic Affairs who grants or denies the
request. Ordinarily a request for extension other than those for
childbirth or adoption is not granted for more than one year.
In the personnel action review process for a faculty member granted an
extension, the standards of the review will not differ from those
applied following the normal probationary period." Al Fivizzani, Chair.
12) Recommendation from the Task Force on Tenure and Promotion that the
criteria for evaluation of early tenure and/or promotion should not be
different than those utilized for such reviews when conducted at the typical
time in grade of academic rank or probationary tenure status. (See attachment
to February 5, 1998 agenda.) Al Fivizzani, Chair.
13) Recommendation from the Student Policy Committee to add UND Student
Organization Travel Policy to the Code of Student Life. Jan Zahrly, Chair.
(See attachment to January Senate agenda.)
14) Informal discussion of the Final Report of the Task Force on

UND MAJOR EXPLORATION DAY IS MAY 9
The spring semester Major Exploration Day will be held Monday, March 9, from
11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom. Approximately 135 students
attended the fall semester Major Exploration Day where they could explore what
39 academic departments and Career Counseling had to offer them. Academic
departments will again have faculty representatives available to answer
students' questions or concerns and to discuss the majors available.
The goal of Major Exploration Day is to provide accurate information, enabling
students to make informed academic decisions. There are a great number of UND
students that do not declare their major upon entrance to the University. Many
declared students are actually interested in a number of majors and need more
information to make their final decision. Also, many students change their
major during their academic years at the University.
Thank you to participants; the event would not be possible without the support
of academic departments and career counseling. For additional information
please contact Student Academic Services at 777-2117. -- Janelle Studney,
Academic Advisor, Student Academic Services.

NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
The Knowledge and Distributed Intelligence in the Information Age program is a
Foundation-wide effort designed to achieve the next generation of human
capability to generate, gather, model, and represent more complex and
cross-disciplinary scientific data from new sources and at enormously varying
scales; to transform this information into knowledge by combining,
classifying, and analyzing it in new ways; to deepen our understanding of the
cognitive, ethical, educational, legal, and social implications of new types
of interactivity; and to collaborate in sharing this knowledge and working
together interactively. Pro-posals are solicited from individuals or groups
for research that is inher-ently multi-disciplinary or that, while lying
within a single discipline, has clear impact on at least one other discipline.
Knowledge Networking will focus on attaining new levels of knowledge
integration, information flow, and interactivity among people, organizations,
and communities. Learning and Intelligent Systems will emphasize research
that advances basic understanding of learning and intelli-gence in natural
and artificial systems and supports the development of tools and environments
to test and apply this understanding in real situations. New Computational
Challenges will emphasize new computational approaches to frontier science and
engineering problems as well as problems involving data intensive computations
and simulations. Deadlines: 4/1/98 (Letter of Intent); 5/8/98 (Full
Proposal). Contact: http://www.nsf.gov/cgi-bin/getpub?nsf9855.
The Division of Undergraduate Education has identified four special themes for
applicants to the following programs to consider as appropriate in developing
projects. These themes are: teacher preparation, diversity, faculty
development, and integration of technology in education.
The Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) program incorporates
most features of the former Course and Curriculum Development and
Instrumentation Laboratory Improvement pro-grams, including the option to
submit instrumentation- or equipment-only proposals. CCLI also gives increased
priority to adaptation and implementation of previously developed materials
and educational practices. The program seeks to improve the quality of
Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Technology (SMET) courses, curricula, and
laboratories. It encompasses SMET education for all students and targets
activities affecting learning environment, content, and educational practices.
The program has three major tracks: Educational Materials Development (CCLI-EMD), Adaptation and Implemen-ta-tion (CCLI-A&I), and National Dissemination
(CCLI-ND). Deadlines: 11/16/98, 6/7/99.
The NSF Collaboratives for Excellence in Teacher Preparation (CETP) program
has been reconfigured to support projects with an Institutional Focus (Track
I) or a System-wide Focus (Track II). The purpose of this program is to
increase significantly the number of pre-kindergarten - grade 12 teachers well
prepared to teach science and mathematics. Projects are required to involve
substantial collaboration of faculty and administrators in the sciences,
mathematics, engineering, technology and their counterparts in education.
Projects should pay particular attention to the need to attract SMET majors
into the teaching profession and the need to provide a good science and
mathematics background to students majoring in other fields but intending to
become teachers, especially those from underrepresented groups. Deadlines:
CETP Track 1--5/1/98 (Preliminary Proposals), 9/1/98 (Formal Proposals); CETP
Tracks 1 and 2--5/1/99 (Preliminary Proposals), 9/1/99 (Formal Proposals).
The Advanced Technological Educate (ATE) program promotes exemplary
improvement in technician education at national and regional levels through
support of curriculum development and program improvement in undergraduate and
secondary school SMET education. ATE solicits two types of proposals: ATE
Projects and National/Regional Centers of Excellence for Advanced
Technological Education. Both focus on one or more aspects of curriculum
development and program improvement. DUE also welcomes proposals for other
activities that lead to a better understanding of advanced technological
education and contribute to lifelong learning. Deadline: 4/15/98
(Preliminary Proposals); 10/15/98 (Formal Proposals).
