Standards, Regulations and Admissions Committee (ASRAC) Revised
Charge S-1609 on Revisions
to Rutgers University Academic
- Martha Cotter and Matthew Winkler,
The ASRAC was charged as follows: Consider
and make recommendations on how the Rutgers University Academic
Integrity Policy should be revised in light of the merger with units of
former UMDNJ. Should there be a single academic integrity policy
all Rutgers schools and colleges? Should the procedures for
alleged violations of academic integrity be different for different
types of schools?
As part of the deliberations, consider the draft academic integrity
tentatively endorsed by the 2013 ad hoc committee charged with
Rutgers Code of Student conduct and Academic Integrity Policy with the
document Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Disciplinary
Committee Issues/Proposed Charges:
Issue of PTL Access to Rutgers Email and
Other Services During Summer - Submitted by PTL Senator Karen
issue has been discussed at previous Executive Committee meetings.
Adrienne Esposito will research the technical aspects of the issue, and
report back to the Executive Committee. Karen Thompson will also
communicate directly with Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
Barbara Lee on the subject.
Esposito has since written that, during her
exploration of this issue, she was asked to inquire as to "what class
or classes of PTL have this issue" because there is a Human Resources
class setting that determines access.
rationale for raising this issue
PTL Senator has asked me to raise this concern, with
the intent of creating universitywide policy in the interest of
seems that SOME PTLs lose access to their university email, Sakai and
privileges during the summer or a semester off. This situation prevents
preparation of classes during these times which disadvantages the PTL
instructor and can undermine class management. This problem especially
immediately before a course begins (particularly for newly hired PTLs)
could at least be avoided by mandated, even temporary, access
requirements. Again, this is a concern for
students as well
as instructors. Can we discuss whether a charge is appropriate to

Natalie Borisovets, ICAC Chair
The ICAC was charged as follows: Examine
the existing Rutgers University Acceptable Use Policy for Information

requirement that University business be conducted using defined
software and applications (considering the scope of "University
business"), and Section 5.C on Privacy, with regard to access by
technicians and university administrators to electronic records
(especially the scope of 5.C.5 and the need of the University to carry
on its normal operations.
Proposed Charge to Faculty and Personnel
Affairs Committee (FPAC) on Integrating RBHS Processes for Reviewing
Deans and Programs - Submitted by Peter Gillett on behalf of
RBHS Chancellor Brian Strom
Charge: Consider and make recommendations as to how procedures for
review of deans and programs at RBHS might best be integrated with
existing procedures in other parts of Rutgers.
part of ongoing efforts to remove inconsistencies and to adopt best
practices, Chancellor Strom has requested that the Senate make
recommendations on these procedures.
Charge on Extramurally Funded Direct Costs - Submitted
by Elizabeth Moran, President of the Faculty Organization at New Jersey
Professor Moran writes, "I was asked to get this info in my role as
Pres of the Faculty Organization at NJMS. Many faculty members are
interested in whether the Senate can address the practice of Rutgers
off-loading ever-increasing charges onto extramurally-funded direct
costs. (Faculty believe many/most of these charges should be covered by
indirects). It is hard for us to know if this issue affects university
divisions other than RBHS, but it seems likely that it does. I will
take your response to our faculty. Thank you."
Charge to Academic Standards, Regulations and Admissions Committee
(ASRAC) on Making Election Day a University Holiday
- Submitted by Student Senator Julie Serrano
