Academic Senate Requests

The Academic Senate Legislative Council held an emergency meeting on June 15 to discuss the letter received from WASC, dated May 13, 2010 and recently made fully available to the campus community. The Council, on behalf of the faculty, is deeply concerned about a number of issues cited in the letter. In light of these concerns, and in the interest of transparency, the Academic Senate Legislative Council is asking for your written response on the following items no later than July13, 2010:

1. WASC has repeatedly told us that the standard which we will be held to is “substantial compliance” with all of the WASC standards. The Legislative Council is requesting a comprehensive list of evidence to date of CDU’s compliance with WASC standards, mapped to the WASC standards, with any gaps identified, and preliminary plans, timelines, and accountabilities to fill those gaps.

  2. The Legislative Council would like a complete written response to several of the items in the WASC letter of May 13, 2010. Why is each of these points still a concern for WASC? How has each of these points been addressed so far and what are the plans, timelines, and accountabilities for future actions related to each point? How does the university I intend to ensure that these points are no longer concerns in the future? The points for response are attached.

The Academic Senate Legislative Council thanks you for your attention to this matter and we look forward to your timely response.

president s response
President’s Response

I thank the Academic Senate Legislative Council for their suggestions. As you know the WASC process is a faculty driven process. I think to best maintain the high level of input and transparency without creating new layers that may be confusing I would recommend the Council’s suggestions be integrated into the work of the existing WASC working committees. Fortunately, the present structure is designed to facilitate direct communication to faculty through their Academic Senate representatives, in addition to my campus presentations.I believe all of the questions posed by the Council are part of the present campus-wide approach to achieve substantial compliance with WASC. I think CDU is well positioned to ensure they are all fully addressed and I thank the leadership of the Academic Senate Legislative Council in advance for their willingness to step up and increase their level of participation to making sure CDU is successful.

There were indications, however, that some of the communications were reactive in nature and not fully collaborative. An example would be that only program directors, not all affected faculty members, were consulted in deciding which programs needed to be closed. (CFR) 1.9 1.8, 1.9, 3.5, 3.9

Response
  • In fact, the Dean did have several College level meetings with faculty members.
  • Dr. Orum developed a response and time table of communication.
  • Deans’ Council developed a data table to share with faculty
  • Going forward, the academic plan will include program priorities and benchmarks for discussions

academic senate point 2
Academic Senate Point #2

The panel recommends that: CDU advise WASC immediately and formally in a letter about its default on the $43 million loan and apprise WASC on a regular basis as to how the renegotiation process is proceeding (CFRs 1.3, 3.5, 4.1, 4.2).

response23
Response

CDU advised WASC on a letter sent to Dr. Diane Harvey on June 4, 2010.

A copy of the letter is posted at:

http://www.cdrewu.edu/assets/pdfs/CDUResponsetoWASCIRCLetterre-defaulton43Mloan060310.pdf

KEY POINTS:

1. No default on payments. Default on debt to equity and other covenants.

2. WASC Response – July 9, 2010 also posted online at:

http://www.cdrewu.edu/assets/pdfs/IRCActionLetter-Amendment-COVER070910.pdf

response24
Response

Among the issues we discussed was the 43M bond issued on or about November 2007 based on a loan agreement with CEFA, Morgan Stanley acting as the credit default swap party, Sovereign Bank holding the letter of credit, and Wells Fargo acting as trustee of the funds.The May 13th letter implied that CDU had not informed WASC of the bond default. I appreciate you reminding us that you had first mentioned CDU’s bond covenant defaults in a September 17, 2009 report to WASC submitted in preparation for a meeting with Ralph Wolff(which I joined by conference call) on September 21, 2009 and discussed in that meeting.That report was not part of the materials that the Interim Report Committee panel had been givenin preparation for its review of CDU’s Interim Report, which led to concern not only about CDU delaying the 2009 audit until the bond had been negotiated, but to concern about the bond covenant default itself.

- Extracted from Dr. Diane Harvey’s (WASC) Letter regarding the IRC Action Letter Amendment dated July 9, 2010

response25
Response

Along with your reminder of the September 17, 2009 report,I especially appreciate your June 3, 2010 detailed response to the request in the IRC letter that CDU “advise WASC immediately and formally in a letter about its default on the $43M (bond) and apprise WASC on a regular basis as to how the renegotiation process is proceeding.”I have sent that letter, along with the September 17, 2009 letter to the panel members to allay any concerns about CDU’s communication with WASC.Given the September 21, 2009 discussion of the bond covenant defaults and the June 3, 2010 careful and detailed explanation of the status of the bond, WASC staff considers it appropriate to reword the paragraph of the IRC letter that refers to this matter.

- Extracted from Dr. Diane Harvey’s (WASC) Letter regarding the IRC Action Letter Amendment dated July 9, 2010

response26
Response

Teri and I were very pleased with the discussion in our meeting with you on May 20, 2010,appreciate the growing trust that you have shown in WASC, and applaud the great progress that has been made in CDU’s open communication with WASC. We look forward to a continued frank, open, and supportive relationship with you and your team.

- Extracted from Dr. Diane Harvey’s (WASC) Letter regarding the IRC Action Letter Amendment dated July 9, 2010

Academic Senate Point #3

As we understand it, CDU was able to balance its budget for February and March of this year (2010) but is not certain balanced budgets will continue. It was not clear to the panel what impact the renegotiations of the debt described above would have on the budget (CFRs 1.3, 3.5, 4.1, 4.2).

response29
Response

Final budget for 2010-2011 was approved by the BOT on June 4, 2010 and sent to WASC on July 2, 2010.

  • Task Force I – Financial Stability, Planning and Management (FSPM) should review the need for additional reports
  • Academic Senate should consult budget managers and finance office to correct report distribution
academic senate point 5
Academic Senate Point #5

The panel recommends that:

  • The 2009 audit be completed and submitted to WASC within 30 days of the date of this letter .

  • Dean of the School of Nursing (SON)
  • Associate Dean of SON
  • Executive Director of Student Admin

academic senate point 8
Academic Senate Point #8

Based on AS recommendations the President indicated that CDU is thinking about the possibility of rotating the leadership. The panel was told that the Council of Deans would collectively fulfill the usual role of a provost because CDU is too small to have a provost .

response41
Response

Administrative structure already discussed in point #6

academic senate point 9
Academic Senate Point #9

The Board has engaged in a variety of transformative and developmental activities including interviews with the Executive Service Corps, the addition of a new board member, the request for MOUs (contracts) from all board members, self-evaluations, three-year terms (with no term limits), and the addition of student and faculty representatives on the board. Although these are worthy efforts, the panel did not find evidence that these activities had yet made a difference to the university.

response43
Response

Need report from the Board (statement by Board indicating changes in board goals, composition of membership, decision-making processes, and ensuring revenue and financial stability and sustainability)

academic senate point 10
Academic Senate Point #10

academic senate point 11
Academic Senate Point #11

Serious concerns about the lack of faculty contracts, a trailing issue from the CPR and the EER visits.

response47
Response
  • MOA was approved and signed.
  • Faculty contract template was finalized.
  • Deans are currently in the process of scheduling

the signing of faculty contracts with each faculty.

All materials are posted at the Academic Senate

academic senate point 12
Academic Senate Point #12

The Dean's Council is in the process of revising the Handbook, and sent an MOU to the faculty in March. The faculty wants its rights and responsibilities to be determined before contracts are signed. Given the seriousness of the situation in which CDU finds itself and the urgency of getting closure on this protracted trailing issue, the panel does not understand why this matter remains unresolved.

response50
Response
  • MOA has already been approved and signed both by CDU Admin and Academic Senate. Copy was sent to WASC in a letter dated June 11, 2010. Faculty Contract has been finalized as well. Copy will be sent to WASC on the President’s next update letter.
  • Both MOA and Faculty contract may now be found at: http://www.cdrewu.edu/Academics/Academic_Senate.

Academic Senate Point #14

Your initial overview covered events that had happened since the writing of the report. The most significant of those was the loss of accreditation for the Physician's Assistant Program, the largest program in the College of Science and Health. The result of that accreditation review was unexpected at CDU because CDU had conducted its own mock site visit in advance of the ARC-PA visit.
