President To Respond To Restructuring Report

Decisions by President Kendall Baker on the first set of recommendations from
UND's restructuring and Reallocation Committee will be reported at a
University Council meeting Friday, Jan. 10, at 12:15 p.m. in Burtness Theatre.
The meeting is open to all.

Twenty recommendations regarding low-enrollment academic program offerings
were made by the Restructuring and Reallocation Committee, which met from July
into November. It was formed by the University Senate in March as a way to
fulfill an earlier request from the UND Planning Council for faculty input
into academic restructuring and reallocation.

The report was received in December by President Baker to use in making
decisions for recommendations to North Dakota University System Chancellor
Larry Isaak. UND's Restructuring and Reallocation Committee will continue to
function beyond this first round of considerations.

The University Council, which will hear President Baker's decisions on the
report, consists of designated administrative officers and full-time faculty
with the rank of instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, and
professor.

Course Start Times Shift

To facilitate course-sharing among NDUS institutions, the North Dakota Board

period.  Typically, Tuesday and Thursday regular classes will begin at 8 a.m.,
9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. and meet for 75 minutes,
with a 15-minute passing period. This change in UND course scheduling will
begin with the 1997 spring semester. All colleges/departments should make
every effort to notify faculty and students of this change. -- Alice Poehls,
Director, Admissions and Records.

*******

System Faculty Listserv Implemented

North Dakota faculty members, administrators, and board members have the
opportunity to communicate via a new e-mail list, ND-FACULTY.

The list is "private," which means subscription requests come to the
list-owner, Barbara Laman from Dickinson State University, for approval. The
list is set up in this way to prevent people other than North Dakota faculty,
administrators, and board members from signing up.  The welcome message new
members receive explains more about the privacy issue. The list is also
confidential, which means it does not show up on "global lists of lists" and
the only announcement of the existence of this list is the article you are now
reading.

In order to sign up for ND-FACULTY, send a message to
LISTSERV@LISTSERV.NODAK.EDU 
leave the "subject" (Subj:, Subject:) line blank and write in the body of the
message
sub nd-faculty yourfirstname yourlastname youraffiliation yourdepartment

For example: sub nd-faculty Barbara Laman DSU English
Or: sub nd-faculty Philip Conn DSU President
Or: sub nd-faculty Larry Isaak SBHE Chancellor


The affiliations and departments will identify you to the list-owner as
belonging to the group of people for whom the listserv was established. Once
you are "approved," i.e., once the list-owner has forwarded your request to
the listserv, you will receive two messages, one informing you how the list
works and how to take yourself off, and the other a welcome message with
information specific to the list.

-- Sara Hanhan (Education), for the Council of College Faculties.

Postal Services Must Review Bulk Mailings

The U.S. Postal Service provides a special nonprofit bulk rate for
organizations that meet eligibility requirements. This special rate provides
significant savings for the University over regular rate bulk mail or first
class mail. A regular rate bulk mailing costs nearly twice that of a nonprofit
mailing. There are, however, closely monitored restrictions placed on both the
content of nonprofit mailings and on the organizations which may use the
University's nonprofit permit. To protect our status as a nonprofit mailer it
is important that the Manager of Campus Postal Services review each bulk
mailing before it is printed. Questionable content or nonprofit status
problems must be resolved at that time. Mailings also must be properly
identified to indicate association with the University.
If you have any questions, please call Mel Foster, Mailing Supervisor, at 7-4832. -- Al Hoffarth, Vice President for Operations.

Pager System To Be Expanded; Information Is Attached

Effective Jan. 1, 1997, Plant Services will be expanding its pager service
campuswide to UND faculty and staff.  The paging system was originally
installed in 1981 to enable Plant Services to have daily contact with
maintenance personnel working on campus.  Because of growth in personnel and
services since that time, the existing system has reached its limitations on
pager capacity, function, distance, and building penetration capabilities.

In September 1995 a University Pager Committee was formed to determine what
system would best serve UND's paging needs in terms of both functionality and
cost.  The Committee concluded that the existing paging system needed to be
updated and expanded to provide a quality service.

Plant Services will administer the paging system and will be offering
departments a choice of pagers for purchase, repair, and support services. 
Departments currently using the tone/voice pagers will not notice any
interruption in service, nor will they be required to upgrade pager type. 
There will, however, be a user fee of $6.75 per month per pager, 
beginning Jan. 1, 1997.

Attached to this issue of the University Letter is a copy of the UND Pager
System Policy and Procedures.  Please read this information carefully, as it
outlines the entire process for departments to purchase or rent a pager.  Also
attached is a copy of the Pager Authorization Form and the Pager Request Form,
which must be submitted before ordering a pager.  Please make copies of these
forms for future use.  Should you have any questions, please call me at 7-3007.  We look forward to serving your future pager needs. -- Pam Zimbelman,
Pager Coordinator, Plant Services.

Participants Needed For Memory Experiments

Participants are needed for experiments dealing with memory and language. 
Volunteers must be 55 or more years of age.  The experiments will require
about an hour, and all participants will receive a small honorarium (between
$5 and $10) for participating.  If you are interested or have questions,
please call me at 7-2414. -- Richard Ferraro, Assistant Professor of
Psychology.

Participants Sought For Nursing Program

The College of Nursing is seeking expectant mothers to participate in the
Expectant Family Program and children with chronic illness, developmental
disability or health risks to participate in the Child Health Program. The
programs are coordinated through the course, N387, The Family in the
Community.

The Expectant Family Program serves as a learning experience for UND nursing
students by providing the students with the opportunity to support the
expanding family. The nursing student's role focuses on the needs of the
family during the time of normal childbearing on a one-on-one basis. In the
Child Health Program, students visit the family and child about twice a month.
Students focus on child health, safety, development, nutrition and family
support.

The College of Nursing has been serving 150 to 200 families per year. Nursing
students are supervised by College of Nursing faculty throughout the
assignment period. There is no cost to participate. This is a community
service and an educational experience.

If you are interested in participating in the Expectant Family Program or
Child Health Program, please contact Liz Tyree, Coordinator, 7-4522, or the
secretary for the Nursing Center, 7-4147, for a brochure or more information.
-- Liz Tyree, Director, Nursing Center.

Expanded University Letter Electronic Delivery Planned

Delivery of University Letter by electronic means through e-mail addresses
will be expanded in January to include as many faculty and staff members as
are known who hold e-mail addresses. While hard (paper) copies will no longer
be sent to those recipients, the audience for messages in the newsletter will
be larger because the number of those receiving University Letter via e-mail
will be greater than the present hard copy list. That list of recipients had
to be reduced several years ago to tenured and tenured track faculty and
certain administrators, plus a limited number of unaddressed copies to each
office/department for routing because of University Letter copy allocation
limitations. 

The current change is being implemented in part for that reason, specifically
involving the change this fiscal year to dollar instead of copy allocations
for duplicating, which would create a significant shortfall in the Office of
University Relations budget. Because of that, and because of increasing e-mail
accessibility, the expansion of University Letter electronic delivery is
advantageous. This method will also provide an earlier delivery time of late
Wednesday afternoon or early Thursday, rather than late Thursday or early
Friday under the paper production system.

Electronic recipients who want a hard copy have the option of printing one
from their e-mail box. Departments and offices may still receive a hard copy
of University Letter, and tenured and tenure track faculty who may not have
e-mail will receive a hard copy.

Call or contact Jan Orvik, University Letter editor, or Jim Penwarden,
University Relations Office director, at 777-2731 about questions on this
University Letter e-mail system. -- Jan Orvik (University Relations), Editor,
University Letter; Jim Penwarden, Director, Office of University Relations.

FYI

Report Icy Conditions To Plant Services

Winter weather causes icy conditions on our parking lots, roads, and
sidewalks.  We will salt and sand to reduce the slipperiness as much as
possible.  Please report any hazardous conditions to Plant Services at 7-2591.
There are some things you can do to help reduce the risk of falling on ice.

1.  Wear boot or overshoes with gripper soles. Slick leather or rubber soles
on dress shoes are unsafe on ice.
2.  Don't walk with your hands in your pockets. This reduces your balance if
you slip on the ice.
3.  Take short to medium steps, or shuffle your feet in very icy areas.
4.  Don't carry or swing heavy loads, such as large boxes or cases, which
could cause you to lose your balance when walking.
5.  When walking, curl your toes under and walk as flatfooted as possible.
6.  Don't step on uneven surfaces. Step well over or avoid curbs with ice on
them.
7.  Place your full attention on walking. Don't allow your attention to be
divided by getting your keys out of your pocket, digging in your pocketbook
for items, etc., while walking on ice.

-- Paul Clark, Associate Director of Plant Services.

Used Fluorescent Bulbs Will Be Recycled

Grand Forks County Commissioners adopted an ordinance on illegal dumping in
the Grand Forks County Landfill which became effective in January.  The
ordinance reads:

"It shall be unlawful for any person, business, etc., to dispose of used oil,
used oil filters, fluorescent bulbs, lead-acid batteries, major appliances,
scrap metal, used tires, or yard waste, in any solid waste disposal facility
unless such facility has provision for intermediate storage and recycling or
composting of these materials. All such materials are to be appropriately
segregated for recycling or composting."

Plant Services will be collecting fluorescent lamps from our campus buildings
beginning this month. Collecting the bulbs will allow us to have the
components recycled. Please contact your Building Services Technician or Plant
Services Recycling Office, 7-4878, if you have any questions regarding bulb
disposal. Plant Services has been recycling major appliances and scrap metal,
as well as composting the yard waste for many years.  For other banned
material please refer to list below for disposal locations.

       Used oil, used oil filters, lead-acid batteries, Public Works Building,
724 North 47th St. (former Coca-Cola Building);

       Tires, Grand Forks Landfill (three miles west of I-29 on Highway 2)

Grand Forks residents should refer to the 1997 Trash Manual for more
information on garbage rates, recycling, and collection schedules. -- Janice
Troitte, Recycling Coordinator.
*******

ECO To Recycle Plastic

The Environmental Conservation Organization will collect plastic in the
Memorial Union. Plastic collection containers will be located in the basement
snack bar area and the south exit on the first floor. Any narrow necked
plastic container may be recycled. Containers must be empty, rinsed out if
possible; covers should be removed but may be recycled. Unacceptable items
include plastic bags, motor oil containers, ice cream buckets, margarine tubs,
toys, pipes, etc. Please follow these guidelines so the containers do not
become contaminated with unacceptable materials. To join ECO, contact the
Student Organization Center at 7-4200. -- Janice Troitte, Recycling

Get Up And Go With Healthtrip '97

All citizens in the Greater Grand Forks area are invited to "get up and go,
with Healthtrip '97!"  You don't have to train for the Boston Marathon to reap
the benefits of being active.  "The Surgeon General's Report on Physical
Activity," published last July, shows that people of all ages can improve the
quality of their lives through a lifelong practice of moderate physical
activity.  Moderate amounts of activity can be obtain in a brisk 30-minute
walk, 30 minutes of mowing the lawn or raking leaves, a 15-minute run, or 45
minutes of playing volleyball.  Gardening and dancing count, too.  And if you
are already doing that, consider picking up the pace!  The report notes that
people who already are physically active will benefit even more by increasing
the intensity or duration of their activity.
Healthtrip '97 is an exercise incentive program designed to encourage
employees and residents in Grand Forks, East Grand Forks and the Grand Forks
Air Force Base to exercise regularly.  The United Hospital and the Grand Forks
Chamber of Commerce are co-sponsors.  The program starts with a kick-off event
Wednesday, Jan. 8, 1997, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Y Family Center, North
Seventh Street and University Avenue.  It will conclude April 30. 
Registration can take place at any time; most like to register at the Chamber
of Commerce before the starting date and at the Y on the starting date.  There
is no deadline; you and your friends can join at any time.


Each participant in Healthtrip '97 will receive a map of the bike path.  Now
in its seventh year, Healthtrip is promoting a tour of the community.  By
recording hours of moderate aerobic exercise, participants will receive
corresponding credit on their maps.  Incentive gifts are presented halfway
through the trip and at the end.  In 1996, 1,800 people joined the program to
"travel the world."  Any and all exercise counts on the map.  If you spend 15
minutes in a moderate activity, such as a 15-minute walk, this will count as a
quarter mile on the bike path.  For this year's Healthtrip, you can double
your mileage if your time in exercise is most intense or is an activity that
will keep you in your target heart rate zone.  For example, if you do 15
minutes of running or brisk walking and your heart rate is in the target heart
rate zone, you can put a half mile on the map, instead of a quarter mile.

Healthtrip Committee members are active 11 months of the year.  This group is
composed of community members and is open to anyone interested in joining our
working committee.  For more information, contact Debbie Kosmatka at 780-5177
or Jamie Johnson at 772-7271.  To obtain more information or to join
Healthtrip, call 772-7271 and "Get Up and Go!" -- Jan Orvik, Editor,
University Letter, for Debbie Kosmatka (United Hospital), Healthtrip '97.

ATTACHMENT: North Dakota University System COMMON COURSE NUMBERING
Questions and Answers, December 1996

What is common course numbering?
       Common course numbering is a tool to improve the transfer process within
the NDUS, to increase the dialogue among NDUS faculty, and to improve the
public and student perception of the NDUS. More specifically, common course
numbering is a tangible product whereby faculty from throughout the System
agree upon the critical content of courses and, as a result of their
agreement, assign a prefix, number, and title that is common among the
institutions.
       Common course numbering is not an attempt to make all courses nor their
content equivalent. No two courses, even two sections of the same course
taught the same semester by the same instructor, are ever exactly the same.
The delivery method, student assessment mechanisms, and even course content
may vary between instructors and from semester to semester. The same
variability will continue to exist under common course numbering.
       The point of common course numbering is that when courses across the
System are fundamentally equivalent as determined by the faculty in terms of
critical content, the courses will now be commonly numbered. The guiding
philosophy of common course numbering is that no student should be required to
repeat courses when they have already mastered the knowledge and skills in
these courses.

How will common course numbering improve the transfer process?
       Common course numbering assists students in developing an academic plan.
Currently, individual course transfer decisions are not made until the student
submits a transcript for evaluation. Common course numbering makes the course
transfer evaluation process proactive by providing students and their faculty
advisors with better information about which courses are common among the
institutions, thus moving the course transfer mechanics to a point where
students and their advisors can decide which courses to register for before
the students attempt to transfer to another institution. Course transfer
decisions will continue to be campus decisions, only now these decisions will
be made proactively.

How will common course numbering increase the dialogue among NDUS faculty?
       As indicated above, a basic premise of common course numbering is that
the critical content of a course and the resulting agreed-upon prefix, number,
and course title is determined by the faculty. In order to get to the level of
discussion needed, faculty in their respective disciplines need to meet and
talk about their courses.
       This process began a number of years ago when the agricultural faculty
from the universities, two-year colleges, and tribal colleges met to determine
how they could help improve the transfer process for students enrolled in
their agricultural programs. Ultimately, as a result of 2-3 meetings per year
beginning in 1990, the faculty agreed upon common course numbering in their
discipline.
       The recent adoption of the common course numbering paradigm by the five,
two-year colleges is another indicator of how common course numbering provides
an opportunity for inter-campus faculty discussions. Initial faculty
discussions of common course numbering began at a meeting of all full-time
NDUS two-year faculty held in October 1995. During the 12 months thereafter,
faculty leaders convened meetings within their respective disciplines. The
faculty dialogues took many forms. Some disciplines met face-to-face. Some
exchanged information over the telephone, through e-mail, or over the
Interactive Video Network. Although the final outcome was a matrix of common
prefixes, numbers, and course titles for applicable courses, another important
outcome was the increased dialogue among the two-year faculty throughout the
System.
       And, most recently, the "State of the Faculty" conference held in Grand
Forks on November 22 and 23, 1996, also provided faculty from all NDUS
institutions an environment in which they could pursue discipline-oriented
discussions about not only common course numbering but other relevant issues
as well. Because of the positive outcomes of the conference, the State Board
of Higher Education has directed the Chancellor to determine an ongoing
funding plan for this conference in order to have it become an annual event.

How will common course numbering improve the public and student perception of
the NDUS?
       In recent meetings, legislators have conveyed to the State Board of
Higher Education, the Chancellor, System office staff, and institutional
officers that the inability to resolve intra-System student transfer problems
is the single, biggest reason for declining legislative support for higher
education in North Dakota. When legislators hear students complain about
problems in transferring credits from one System institution to another, the
legislators see this as an indication that the campuses have become large,
unresponsive, and bureaucratic organizations that are no longer sensitive to
student needs or state policy makers' concerns. As a consequence, many
legislators find it difficult to support funding requests for the System.
       But, because of the recent staff and faculty efforts on the campuses,
progress is being made as to how the NDUS is perceived as evidenced in
Governor Schafer's remarks on December 5 during his 1997-99 budget
presentation:
       Since becoming governor, I have asked higher education to establish
       clearer priorities and to operate more efficiently together as a unified
       system. And, I believe the System is beginning to answer this call. The
       University System and many campuses have made good starts at working
       together, at sharing responsibilities and programs.
The observation that the "campuses have made good starts at working together"
is based upon solid steps taken to improve the student transfer experience,
with common course numbering as just one example.

What happens now?
       The two-year colleges presented their plan for common course numbering
to the State Board of Higher Education at its November 1996 meeting. At that
meeting, the Board adopted the common course numbering system with
implementation on the two-year colleges starting Fall 1997. A copy of the
common course prefix, titles, and numbers proposed by the two-year campuses is
available through the office of each academic vice president. The common
course numbering information may also be accessed on the System web site
(http://www.nodak.edu/) by clicking on the "Information for Faculty and Staff"
button.
       The Board at its November 1996 meeting also asked that all System
campuses continue their work with the identification of the critical content
of their courses. This is being achieved through the common course numbering
project of the two-year colleges and the course equivalency project of all the
campuses which was prompted by Board action at its November 1995 meeting. The
leaders in this latter endeavor opted to approach this process differently
than the two-year colleges by focusing on selected disciplines one at a time
rather than make a mass move. Mathematics and chemistry faculty from across
the System have developed course equivalencies within their respective
disciplines. The biology faculty are to proceed next.
       The continued review of the content of courses is necessary to fulfill
the Board's action at the same meeting to adopt common course numbering for
lower-division courses at all 11 NDUS campuses, with the request that the
common course numbering concept be carried beyond the lower-division level
whenever possible.
       And, as a means to gather information yet continue to move forward, the
Board asked the faculty on the four-year campuses to review the common course
numbering system proposed by the two-year campuses and respond to the Vice
Chancellor for Academic Affairs by December 31, 1996, with concerns about the
proposed common course numbering plan. For example, the two-year campuses have
proposed calculus at the 200-level while most four-year institutions consider
the first calculus course to be a 100-level course. These potential problems
need to be identified and resolved quickly, so the two-year campuses can
implement commonly numbered courses for the fall 1997 semester. Following the
compilation of the faculty responses to the Vice Chancellor for Academic
Affairs, the Board will have the common course numbering topic on its agenda
either in January or February 1997.

Conclusion
       Board members, institutional officers, and some faculty agree the most
visible way to show progress in addressing concerns about transfer between
System institutions is through a common course numbering system. But,
providing students and their academic advisors with the tools to make an
informed transfer decision is truly the most important reason for a common
course numbering system.
