Faculty Council approves APS changes

Greater clarity the goal of minor revisions

The CU Faculty Council voted to approve proposed changes to two Administrative Policy Statements (APS) during the council’s Dec. 5 meeting at 1800 Grant St.

The two are:

  • APS 1019, which outlines program review procedures; minor changes are being made for ease of understanding.
  • APS 1026, which defines the roles and responsibilities of department chairs; the minor changes include some rewording, for instance, “mentoring” students rather than “counseling” them.

Once approved by President Bruce Benson, the revisions would take effect Jan. 1.

The council also advanced a slate of APS changes that amend references to “service” to say “leadership and service.”

“We’re just trying to recognize leadership as something that people do at the university – and recognize it in a very public way in the APSs,” said Chair Melinda Piket-May.

The affected policy statements: 1003, 1004, 1006, 1008, 1011, 1021, 1022, 1024 and 1026.

The council’s next meeting is scheduled for noon to 3 p.m. Jan. 23 at 1800 Grant St.
