VIII.  Resolution--endorsed by the Faculty Organization Executive Committee

Whereas IUN is in a financial crisis with no foreseeable solution, the Faculty Organization recommends:

    1.  Dissloution of the Center for Regional Excellence and the Institute for Innovative Leadership, unless the centers can generate their own revenue to pay for personnel costs for at least a two year period, beginning July 1, 2008.  Such a determination will be made by a committee appointed jointly by the Faculty Organization and the VCAA
    2.  Reduction in costs associated with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, by eliminating all salaried staff and reducing the Director position to a part time teaching position
    2.  No additional cost for the College of Health and Human Services be incurred, i.e., administrative restructuring of the divisions incorporated into CHHS can be the only way to fund the administrative structure of the CHHS
    4.  Summer teaching stipends shall not exceed $ 7000 per course.  This amount will be indexed annually to the average faculty raise awarded in the prior academic year.
