MINUTES OF THE REGULAR FACULTY COUNCIL MEETING OF
OCTOBER 21, 2013


IV.
REPORT OF THE CHAIR.

B. Update on the Model HOP for UTS 180.
Dr. Hart briefly commented on all the work that had gone into the UTS 180 policy both on campus and at UT System, and that the current version is a “lot less draconian and insulting to faculty now.” She noted that the Faculty Council Executive Committee has been working with Vice Provost Neal Armstrong and Associate Vice President Jeff Graves on the language that goes into the University’s Handbook of Operating Procedure. She noted that “graduate student academic employees, including but not limited to, teaching assistants, instructional assistants, and research assistants are not covered by this policy,” which had been a concern on campus.
