association-supported standards that resultedinserious professional injury to a professor." The professor, Sami AI-Arian, was tenuredinthe departmentofcomputer Sciencesinthe USF CollegeofEngineering.In2002, Professor AI-Arian was placed on administrativeleave with pay by President Judy Genshaft after a controversial public appearanceona national television show. Actually, what happened on the television show rekindled a problem that had been smoldering since a 1990s episode in which Professor AI-Arian had been put on administrative leave with pay by an earlier USF president becauseofa federal investigation. Whennofederal charges were filed, he was returned to the classroom. While the administration focused on the professor's engagementinactivities that fall outside the scopeofemployment, which the administration believed adversely affected the legitimate interestofthe University, the major issue for USF faculty and for theMUPwas that the faculty suspension and the subsequent termination steps were taken withoutfaCUltyinputinthe decision. After months of administrative leave, with pay, Professor AI-Arian was terminated by USF President Judy Genshaft, after she learnedofhis indictment by federal authoritiesoncharges that he was heavily involvedinsupportofterrorist activities using the Universityasa cover for these activities. These federal charges grew outofa continuing investigationofProfessor AI-Arian that had begun almost a decade earlier. Thisisan extremely complicated case that cannotbetried hereinour Phi Beta Kappa faculty members' application for USF to host a chapter. What is most important to us nowisthat USF has adopted new rules that mandate faculty consultation. These rules include: Chapter 6C4-10.100 et seq. contains personnel rules for all UniversityofSouth Florida Faculty, unless otherwise exempted from these rules. Faculty personnel rules are structured within the framework provided by principles of academic freedom/responsibility and shared governance. A University policy on Academic11


Freedom and Responsibility approved by the Faculty Senate and the Administration supports this principle. (a) The UniversityofSouth Florida affirms the principlesofacademic freedom and responsibility, which are rooted in a conceptionofthe University as a communityofscholars unitedinthe pursuitoftruth and wisdominan atmosphereoftoleranceandfreedom. (b) Academic Freedom is the freedom to discuss all relevant matters in the classroom, to explore all avenuesofscholarship, research, creative expression, to speak freelyonall mattersofUniversity governance, and to speak, write or act as a public citizen without institutional discipline or restraint. Chapter 6C4-1 0.111, paragraphc,States:Inkeeping with principlesofshared faculty governance, tenured faculty members who receive noticeofactualorintended terminationofemployment for "just cause" will have the right (though not the obligation) to have the case heard before a committee of faculty peers. If they choose this option, they will notify the Faculty Senate President, under whose authority the committee willbeconstituted and will meetinaccordance with appropriate University policies and procedures. What happened during the period 2001 to 2003 should not happen now orinthe foreseeable future.12

Section III. Faculty Note earlier instructions regarding data for arts and Sciences, if applicable. Defining "CollegeofArts and Sciences" For the purposesofour application to host a Phi Beta Kappa chapter we are defining "CollegeofArts and Sciences" as a composite of departments and Schools from several existing Colleges. During our yearsofpreparation for this application, the USF Faculty Group for Phi Beta Kappa has designated this virtual College as our CollegeofLiberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). The largest numberofthese departments and programs are in USF's regular CollegeofArts and Sciences (CAS). A few, such as Music, Theatre, Dance, Art, and Art History are administered under the CollegeofVisual and Performing Arts (CVPA). Drawn from the CollegeofBusiness Administration (COBA)isEconomics, the programsofwhich are already considered as partofthe CollegeofArts and Sciences although the departmentisadministrativelyinthe CollegeofBusiness Administration. USF's Honors College(He)administers several Interdisciplinary seminars that constituteanHonors Major. One more point: although USF has four campuses on which instructioniscarried out -the main campus in Tampa, and othersinSarasota, Lakeland, and St. Petersburg we are excluding the St. Petersburg campus from our defined "CollegeofLiberal Arts and Sciences" because that campus is seeking regional accreditation as a separate unit and that separation may well be accomplished before this application canbeimplemented. Our listofliberal arts and Sciences departments and programs are as follows: Aging Studies Africana Studies American Studies Anthropology Art and Art History (CVPA) 27


Biology Botany Cellular and Molecular Biology Chemistry Classics Communication Creative Writing Criminology Dance (CVPA) Economics (COBA) English Environmental Science and Policy French Geography Geology German Gerontology Global Studies Government & International Affairs History Honors (CH) Humanities and American Studies Interdisciplinary Natural Sciences I nterdisciplinary Social Sciences, International Studies Italian Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies Liberal Arts Liberal Studies Linguistics Mass Communications28


Mathematics Microbiology Music (CVPA) Philosophy Physics Political Sciences Psychology Religious Studies Russian Sociology Spanish Specialization in Literature Theatre (CVPA) Women's Studies World Language Education ZoologyWewant to clarify the statusofcertain programs that we have included within our CollegeofLiberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) that might appear to an outsideras"professional" but are here, at USF, "Liberal Arts and Sciences." OneoftheseisMass Communications, and the other is Criminology. With respect to our Mass Communications program, we agree with their faculty members' belief that their curriculum is appropriately within the liberal arts. The directorofthat School writes: "We should clarify that although the School operates a professional program at the undergraduate level, it is a program that is nonetheless based on a substantial liberal arts and Sciences foundation. For example, our national accrediting agency says the following about the degree program:29


The Journalism and Mass Communications Degree. The Council embraces the valueofa liberal arts and Sciences curriculum as the essential foundation for professional education in journalism and mass communications. Professional education applies the knowledge and perspectivesofarts and Sciences disciplines to the understandingofthe modern world and to the evolution and workingsofdiverse communities within society. "The accrediting agency enforces this doctrine with the requirement that a minimumof65 hoursinthe liberal arts and Sciences must be a part of every degree plan. As a practical matter, the average USF mass communications student Graduates with 75 to 85 hours in the liberal arts and Sciences (but not 90 hours as desired by PBK)." With respect to Criminology, the chair of that department writes: "A useful way to demonstrate the liberal arts emphasisinour curriculumisthrough a reviewofthe department's Assessment Plan thatisus'edfor purposesofSACS accreditation. As shown on the attached page, our curriculumisdesigned to support the CollegeofArts and Sciences' goalofstriving'...To instill in its students a historyofhuman ideas, a senseoflove for learning, and an understandingofthe means which scholars have used in their search for beauty and orderinthe natural world.' "Hence, the specific student learning outcomes we seektoachieve areanunderstanding and critiqueofthe U.S. systemofcriminal justice, a familiarity with social theoriesofcriminal behavior, and a comprehensionofresearch methods by which questions pertinent to criminology and the criminal justice systems are explored. "Allofthese areas require the developmentofcritical thinking skills, and as our majors move into their upper-level courses, the articulation of ideas through written and/or oral communication skills. For our methods courses,anenhancementofmathematical/statistical skillsissought."30


Our definition of our virtual "CollegeofLiberal Arts and Sciences" excludes those departments and Schools within CAS that offer only professional degrees, namely, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Library and Information Systems, Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling, and Social Work. Although we have excluded these last programs from our definitionofCLAS, it is important to note that manyofthe facultyofthese programs are strongly oriented toward liberal arts and value the liberal arts education as crucial to professional trainingintheir own professions. As an example of this liberal arts orientation even in USF programs excludedfrom our definitionofa "collegeofliberal arts and Sciences," we cite the following Statement by the directorofthe SchoolofSocial Work, Professor William Rowe, who, after pointing out that the CouncilonSocial Work Education should provide curricula that build on a liberal arts perspective to promote breadthofknowledge, critical thinking, and communication skills, writes, "Personally I couldn't agree more. Ultimately we need Graduates who can problem-solve and make good judgments based on a keen understandingofthe human condition. A liberal arts background is fundamental to achieving this."11\A.Informationonfaculty (for CollegeofLiberal Arts and Sciences only) conforming to CDS1-1,1-2FullPartTotal time timea.)

Such sabbaticals are granted to increase a faculty member's value to the University through enhanced opportunities for professional renewal, planned travel, study, formal education, research, writing or other experienceofprofessional value, not as a reward for service.46


The University will make available to each eligible faculty member whose application has been reviewed by the University, subject to the conditions set forth below, a sabbatical for two semesters (Le., one academic year) at half-pay. The University will also make available on a competitive basis, subject to the conditions set forth below, 15 sabbaticals for one semester at fUll-pay. An additional 15 sabbaticals for one academic year at two-thirds pay will be made available on a competitive basis, subject to the conditions set forth below. A Sabbatical Committee will be formed each year to review all applications. The Committee members shall be tenured faculty who have been elected by other tenured faculty in the appropriate College or regional campus. The Committee shall consistofone member from (a) eachofthe Tampa campus Academic Affairs Colleges, plus Architecture and FMHI, (three members from the CollegeofArts and Sciences) and (b) one member each from the St. Petersburg, Sarasota/Manatee and Lakeland campuses. More detail on sabbatical leave policy is available on the web: Development Leave PolicyProfessional development leave shall be made available to faculty members who meet the requirements set forth below. Such leaves are granted to increase a faculty member's value to the University through enhanced opportunities for professional renewal, educational travel, study, formal education, research, writing, or other experienceofprofessional value, not as a reward for service.

Processes and criteria governing hiring, promotion, tenuring,posttenure review, and compensationoffacultyBoth the University as a whole and the CollegeofArts and Sciences have codified the Faculty Recruitment&Selection Process&Procedures.50


Basically it is a ten-step process that includes guidelines for appointing the Search Committee, developing a search plan, advertising the position, processing applications, certifying and then narrowing the applicant pool, Interviewing the finalists, preparing the letterofoffer. A well-conceived, approved search plan, followedingood faith, will ensure acceptanceofthe applicant pool. A good search plan will demonstrate advertising directed to under represented protected classes, basedonthe DEO's Equity Accountability Plan. The Plan must be written so as not to disadvantage applicants, or not to "favor" any applicant over another. Advertisingisa joint effort among the OfficesofHuman Resources, Equal Opportunity Affairs, CAS Dean, and the recruiting department. The heartofthe Guidelinesisequal treatment for all applicants at each step. The Search Committee will utilize the evaluation instrument and process described in the approved Search Plan. Using the Recruitment Worksheet the Committee member(s) will indicateinColumn 1 whether applicants do or do not meet the minimum published qualifications. ALL applicants ranked for Interviews should have similar schedules and routines. The final stepinthe recruitment processispreparing the letterofoffer. The Coordinator for Faculty Recruitment will prepare the letterofoffer and track it through the lineofsignatures: Unit Chair/Director, Dean, Provost, Candidate. Candidate will be provided a business reply envelope for convenienceinresponding to the offer.USF POLICYThe University is committed to the principles of equal educational and employment opportunities for individuals who are similarly situated without regard to race, color, marital status, sex, religion, national origin, disability or age. Furthermore, the University recognizes the importanceofa culturally diverse faculty to its mission and quest for institutionalexcellence. The Universityisalso committed to the employment and51

Headsofhiring departments/units will ensure that good faith efforts are made to generate applicant pools that are diverse in termsofgender, race and ethnicity. Major USF Points on Interviewing Finalists and Selecting the Best Qualified1.The hiring authority shall consider the recommended finalists. However,ifa Search Committee is utilized, the hiring authority may request that the committee reconsider its recommendations and submit other candidates for consideration. The hiring authority may, for cause, cancel the search and re-advertise the position.2.The Hiring authority shall Interview allofthe finalists, and involve other appropriate individuals and/or groups in the process. The hiring authority shall select the applicant who best meets the needsofthe University and record the reason(s) for his/her decision on the Recruitment Worksheet (Exhibit #9).3.The Hiring Unit will complete the Hiring Report (Exhibit #10) and forward it with the Recruitment Worksheet to the Equal Opportunity Liaison with the applications/credentialsofthe finalists. 4. TheProvosWicePresident or designee shall review the search and selection process for compliance with the Recruitment and Selection Guidelines, and recommend corrective actions whenever appropriate.5.TheProvosWicePresident or designee shall notify the hiring authority,inwriting, and the hiring unitofhis/her approvalofthe Hiring Report. 52


6.A copyofthe approved Hiring Report will be forwarded to the OfficeofEqual Opportunity Affairs for retention, monitoring and reporting. Major USF PointsonOffering the Job and Providing Notification1.Upon receiptofthe Hiring Report (Exhibit #10) the hiring unit will submit required documents to the Officeofthe ProvosWice President for approvalofa LetterofOffer.2.Upon acceptanceofthe offer by the selected applicant, all other applicants will be notified of the resultsofthe search. Tenure and Promotion Criteria and Procedures Both the University and the CollegeofArts and Sciences have formal criteria and procedures for tenure and promotion. The qualityofa University depends chiefly upon the merited reputationsofits faculty members. Thus, decisions to grant tenure and promotion are among the most criticalinthe University life. They require careful, deliberate planning by each faculty member who expects to be considered for such action and responsible, objective, and informed consideration by all who are involvedinreview and recommendations. For this reason, clear and consistent tenure and promotion criteria must be applied. The College of Arts and Sciences evaluates candidates for tenure and/or promotion basedontheir performance in teaching, research, and service. The following criteria establish minimum College-wide standards that are consistent with the University Guidelines for Tenure and Promotion and the Collective Bargaining Agreement. While the College standards allow for exceptionsincompelling circumstances, the burdenofproofinsuch a case rests on the candidate in the first instance andonthose who review and judge the application favorably at successive levelsofreview.53


Each department and program in the CollegeofArts and Sciences must also have written criteria for tenure and promotion that are consistent with both University and College standards. The criteriaofeach department or program should stipulate the relative importance and significanceofteaching, research, and service in accordance with its particular mission. Departments or programs may establish criteria that assign higher priority toanyoneorcombinationofcategoriesofteaching, research, and service. Whenever a department or program revises its criteria, it must submit revisions to the Dean for review to ensure compliance with College criteria.Inthe tenure and promotion process, the reviewers at both the department and College levels should be thoroughly familiar with the documents offered to support the applications. The candidates and the responsible departmental representative should supply the College reviewers and the Dean with complete, clear, and accurate information.TENURE:The minimum criteria for tenure in the CollegeofArts and Sciences are an outstanding recordineither teaching or research and/or creative activity, at least a strong recordinthe other, plus at least a satisfactory recordofservice.Teaching.To qualify for tenure, faculty members in the CollegeofArts and Sciences must have a consistent patternofpositive evaluation in teaching and have achieved a levelofperformance that is strongoroutstanding.Research.The grantingoftenure is a judgment based on past performance and potential for future contributions to research and/or creative activity. For a recommendationoftenureinthe College, candidates must document that they have made a substantial contribution to research and/or creative activity in their discipline and have established a recordofachievement that is strong or outstanding.54


Service. To qualify for tenure, candidates must display evidenceofsome appropriate service to the University and/or the profession and/or the civic community. Community service must relate to the basic missionofthe University and to the faculty member's professional expertise. Each recommendation for tenure shouldbeaccompanied by a Statementofthe mission, goals, and educational needs of the department, College, and/or regional campus, and the importanceofthe contributions the candidate has made and is expected to makeinthe future toward achieving the goals and meeting the needs. Consideration should be given to the candidate'sability and willingness to work cooperatively within the department, College, and/or campus. PROMOTION TO ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR: The minimum criteria for promotion to associate professor are the same as those for tenure.Incases where a candidate for tenure holds the rankofassistant professor, the recommendation for tenure should entail a recommendation for promotion to the rank of associate professor. PROMOTION TO PROFESSOR: For promotion to the rankofprofessor, the candidate must offer conclusive evidenceofa reputation beyond the University, among peers on a nationalorInternational level, for outstanding contributionsineither research and creative activityorteaching. The candidate must also have at least a strong recordofservice. In summary, the minimum criteria for promotion to professor in the CollegeofArts and Sciences are an outstanding recordineither teachingorresearch and/or creativeactivity and at least a strong recordinthe other two categories. REVIEW OF PROGRESS TOWARD TENURE: Itisthe responsibilityofthe department peer committee and department chair or other appropriate administrator to include.a progress toward tenure review as part of the annual evaluation for all faculty in the probationary period for tenure. For those faculty appointed with the full probationary term a more extensive pre-tenure review will be conducted during the third year. Ifanindividualiscredited with tenure-earning service at the timeofinitial appointment, the55


review will be conducted at the approximated mid-pointofthe probationary period. The mid-point review will be conducted by the department's tenure and promotion committee, the department chairperson or other appropriate administrator, the College or College/campus tenure and promotion committee,andthe College/campus dean. Upon the requestofthe faculty member the reviewofprogress toward tenure will include the Provost. All mid-point reviews shall address the performanceofannual assignments including teaching, research/creative activity, and service occurring during the preceding tenure earning yearsofemployment.Inaddition, all reviews should critically assess overall performance and contributions in lightofmid-point expectations. The mid-point review will not be as extensive as the formal tenure review that occurs later but should be based on a setofdocuments which would include: a current vita; annual evaluations; student/peer evaluationofteaching; selected examplesofteaching materials and scholarship; and a brief self-evaluation by the faculty member. The mid-point review is intended tobeinformative, and encouraging to faculty who are making solid progress toward tenure, instructional to faculty who may need to improve in selected areasofperformance, and cautionary to faculty where progress is significantly lacking.TENURE AND PROMOTION COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIPWhen establishing Tenure and Pro'motion Committees, departments, Schools, and Colleges, whenever possible and practical, should adhere to the following criteria:1.Membership on committees shouldbe(s)elected from faculty who have received tenure at the UniversityofSouth Florida and have been appointed at the University for at least two years;2.Those eligible to electcommittees should be department, School, College, or campus members who hold tenure-track appointments;56


3.Termsofcommittee members should be staggered and ordinarily should not exceed three years;4.Turnover of committee membership should be encouraged through restrictionsonconsecutive terms, if feasible;5.Individuals serving on more than one advisory committee (e.g., department, School, College, or campus) should vote at the department/school level on candidates from their home unit but not on these candidates at other committee levels. Chairs who serve on College committees should refrain from votingoncandidates from their own units;.6.Committees considering candidates for promotion to Professor should be comprised of individuals holding the rankofProfessor, unless the facultyinthe department/college determine otherwise and so describe another procedureinthe appropriate governance document of the unit.Post-Tenure ReviewAnnual EvaluationofallfaCUltymembers, tenured and non-tenured, is carried out by departmentalfaCUltyadvisory committees and department chairs. Also, the collective bargaining agreement (2001-2003) called for "Sustained Performance Evaluations" according to procedures developed by elected faculty members and involving both peers and administrators. There are,inaddition, the procedures labeled, "QualificationofFaculty" under SACS reaffirmation of University accreditation:Faculty (including adjuncts)Instructional personnel teaching undergraduate courses should holdanearned doctorate or master's degree with a majorinthe discipline taught;orhold at least a master's degree and have completed at least 18 Graduate semester hoursinthe discipline taught.57


Instructional personnel teaching Graduate and post-baccalaureate courses should holdanearned doctorateinthe discipline taught or related discipline; or hold the terminal degree for the discipline. Exceptions may be made for individuals who do not meet the minimum qualifications but who are considered by the department to possess other demonstrated competencies and achievements that will contribute to effective teaching and student learning outcomes. All such exceptions must be approvedinwriting by the department chair and dean, and documentation of the competencies and achievements that justify the exception must be on file., Graduate Students1.Graduate students teaching or assistingincourses should be supervised by at least one faculty member experiencedinthe discipline, perform teaching activitiesinthe discipline of the student's major, achieve a score of at least50on the Test of Spoken English (TSE) or SPEAK test if their native language is not English, receive regular in service training, and receive planned and periodic written evaluations.2.Graduate students who have completed at least18Graduate semester hoursinthe discipline taught may be assigned to teach undergraduate courses and are appointed as Graduate Teaching Assistants, Class Code 9184.3.Graduate students who have completed at least30Graduate semester hoursinthe discipline taught may be assigned to teach undergraduate courses and are appointed as Graduate Teaching Associates, Class Code 9183.4.Graduate students who have completed less than18hoursinthe discipline may not be assigned to teach an undergraduate course and therefore may not be designated as a "primary instructor." Such students, if their major isinthe teaching discipline, may provide support to a qualified instructor and are appointed as Graduate Assistants, Class Code 9185.58


5.Graduate students may notbeassigned to teach a Graduate course and therefore may not be designated as a "primary instructor." Such students,iftheir major isinthe teaching discipline, may provide support to a qualified instructor and are appointed as Graduate Assistants, Class Code 9185.CompensationofFacultyFaculty Compensation is coveredbyRule6C4-10.103 (3)(a) which reads, "Merit pay for faculty will be distributed according,tomodels developed through a majority vote of membersinthe faculty member's primary unit or department." Each department includedinourCollege of Liberal Arts and Sciences has developed such a model and mostofthose modelsuSeanelected Faculty Advisory Committee which works with the Chairofthe Departmentindetermining the merit pay due each faculty member.Further Details relevant to Hiring, Faculty Development, Promotion, Tenure, etc. is available on USF's web pages(;;; 59

Section IV. CurriculumA.Information describing curriculum required of all students.Transcribe catalog; do not photocopyorreproduce. Include any catalog Statement pertaining to liberal education. Although this section, like sectionsIIIandV,requests information only on the "collegeofliberal arts and Sciences" as we defined it at the beginningofSection III, itisimportant to note that the UniversityofSouth Florida emphasizes the liberal arts for allofour studentsinall Colleges, but that muchofthe burdenofliberal arts instruction falls on the CollegeofArts and Sciences. Therefore, we begin this section with discussionofthe liberal arts general education requirements applicable to all students, including "exit requirements" as well for all students. Subsequently, we discuss the degree requirements for the CollegeofArts and Sciences and for the CollegeofVisual and Performing Arts, the two that are essential to our "collegeofliberal arts and Sciences" definedinSection III.Liberal Arts RequirementsA liberal arts education inspires and fosters reflective skills and waysoflooking at the world and one's placeinit that transcend any particular courseofstudy. A liberal arts educationisalso self-reflective; it contains within itself the ability to examine its ownlbases and presuppositions, with the goalsofcontinuously adapting and evolving within a varietyofcontexts that are ever-changing and ever-widening. Liberal arts education focusesonhuman agency and the capacity to relate to people, to events, to the physical and biological world, to ideas, to various waysofknowing.Inthe classroom, teachers and students come to share a desire to understand themselves and the world. They begin to appreciate the persons, problems, ideas, and discussions that lead to discoveries. Their common desire and shared appreciation may lead,in64


turn, to the loveoflearning that is often described as the goalofa liberal arts education, for it is this love that persists after the baccalaureate has been awarded. This process can occur in the studyofany subject and within every University discipline. Liberal arts educationisall inclusiveinthat it crosses the boundaries among disciplines and between learning as an end in itself and learning for the purposeofacquiring work. All inquiries in disciplines, whether intellectual, practical, technological, Scientific,oraesthetic, consider data, actions, images, or contexts that allow for more than one Interpretation. Acquiring a liberal arts education entails awarenessofthe multiple Interpretationsofthe worldinits diverse dimensions. Those dimensions include issuesofvalues and ethics, International perspectives, environmental perspectives race and ethnicity, and gender. Goalsofa Liberal Arts Education The goalsofa liberal arts education include graduating enlightened individuals who have gained the following: A loveoflearning that inspires curiosity and creativity, and instills confidenceinone's ability to master new knowledge and grow from the experience An understandingofand respect for persons from whom the values of compassion, tolerance, sensitivity, and civic responsibility spring An appreciationofand capacity for enlightened personal expression that encourages a loveofreading andofother formsofshared self-expression, creativity and discipline in language use, and active listening A respect for knowledge and its problems through exposure to and acquisitionofvarious intellectual traditions and their values An understandingofthe past that gives insight into personal and communal ideas and values, reveals the present as partofa historical process, and provides a basis for critical reflectiononthe present and the future65


A knowledgeofand an appreciation for the physical and biological world through a working knowledgeofthe methods and philosophyofnatural Science, including observation, hypothesis formation and testing, logic, skepticism, toleranceofambiguity and uncertainty, as well as an openness to new ideas and to the sharingofknowledge A knowledgeofand an appreciation for the arts that heighten understanding to the human condition and how itisrevealed, discovered, and expressed through the creative process A knowledgeofand insight into different cultures that enhance appreciationofself and others, and enlarges understanding of needs and contingencies facing the peoplesofthe world An ability to think critically and solve problemsinall phases of one's life, a recognitionofand tolerance for problematic issues that require reflectiveto reach a senseofpersonal commitment Adaptability that enables one to anticipate, detect, and respond adaptively to changing information and circumstances Intellectual integration and balance that provide a basis for synthesizing ideals and perspectives, while encouraging continued intellectual exploration and development The USF Select Committeeonthe Liberal Arts notes "that the traditional balance between depth and breadth between career-specific preparation and general liberal arts educationis no longer the ruleinAmerican undergraduate education. The compartmentalizationofknowledge has led to a de-emphasisonthe liberal arts core .... The UniversityofSouth Florida establishes a setofgeneral education requirements that offer students sufficient depth and breadth in the liberal arts core. The curriculum strives to achieve a coherence that provides students with a purposeful direction of study. The depthofa liberal arts education will be accomplished by ensuring that all coursesinthe liberal arts curriculum encourage the development of learning skills and content appropriate to the fieldofstudy. These skills include conceptual thinking suchasabstraction, planning, and design. They also incorporate analytical thinking skills66


including Interpretation, problem solving, and practical application, as abstraction, planning, and design. They also incorporate analytical thinking skills that involve originality or imagination. These skills also include the written and oral usesoflanguage. The content of courses included in the liberal arts curriculumwillbe such that students will be given the opportunity to acquire a basic and integrative understandingofthe knowledge that pertains to the subject matter under consideration and learn how this knowledge relates to higher education as a whole. The breadthofa liberal arts education will be accomplished by allowing students to follow a courseofstudy that includes the many diverse areasofinquiryinliberal arts: English Composition; Quantitative Methods; Natural Sciences; Social Sciences; Historical, Fine Arts, and African, Latin American, Middle Eastern, or Asian Perspectives. The all-inclusive characterofa liberal arts education also requires that students be introduced to the widest rangeofscholarly viewpoints about the human and physical world. Although the University cannot hope to provide such introductions to every dimensionofthe world, there are some that so profoundly shape daily life and scholarship as to warrant systematic attentionina University's basic curriculum. Those include issuesofvalues and ethics, International perspectives, environmental perspectives, race and ethnicity, and gender. The curriculum will emphasize consideration of scholarly viewpoints that pertain to these dimensions across different areas of liberal arts inquiry. This will allow students to overcome the compartmentalizationofknowledge that might interfere with a well-rounded and coherent liberal arts education. While these dimensions emerge from the breadth and depthofliberal arts education, their innovativeness as a partofliberal art requirements is such that they require further consideration.Distinctive Dimensionsofthe Liberal Arts CurriculumThe incorporation of the dimensionsofvalues and ethics, International and environmental perspectives, race and ethnicity, and gender within the traditional liberal arts curriculumisa unique characteristicofliberal arts education at the UniversityofSouth Florida.67


Values inform the ethical behavior of individuals and societies and govern the way human relate to each other on a daily basis. Thus, the studyofvalues and ethics enable us to understand the implicationsofour thought and actions and take responsibility for them. As membersofcultures, we are not only shaped by cultural values but also, through critical and responsible refection, we transform these cultural values. Studying these values in both their unity and diversity can provide insight into the way our personal and social worlds are shapedinvarious historical and social contexts. The studyofvalues and ethics also advances respect for knowledge and its problems, and the valuesofthe knowledge-maker inform each phaseofthe processofknowledge construction. A liberal arts education enables students to recognize the value-laden characterofknowledge, including knowledge about the world, the environment, race and ethnicity, and gender.Wewant students to understand the various criteria that scholars employ to decide which theory and content are preferable, and to explore and articulate the values reflectedinthe choiceofthese criteria. An International dimensioninliberal arts education encourages students to evaluate both the content and substanceoftheir education and the process by which they acquire that information within the broadest possible context. This dimension provides students with an opportunity to reflectonthe similarities and dissimilarities between their own societies and thoseofother countries, and to understand the common structural bases for those similarities and differences. It is imperative that the preparationofstudents as informed and active membersoftheir own society include the diverse, global realities in which they participate. Information is generated within a context and cannot be evaluatedina vacuum. In order for students understand their own nation, knowledgeofit mustbepresentedinthe context in which it developed and currently exits, thatofone among many nations. An environmental dimension allows students to consider the changing nature of the earth and its constituent elements,aswell as the relationship between the physical, biological, and human worlds. Considerationofthe environment entails understanding the extent to which changesinthe earth's environment are caused by human activities, or are the resultsofnon-human processes. It will allow explorationofwhether these68


changes in the earth's environment are caused by human activities, or are the resultsofnon-human processes. It will allow explorationofwhether these changes will cause other, secondary changes, and whether these changes are Healthy and desirable for human beings and other organisms. It also addresses the natureofthe consequences andinvolved if someorallofthese changes are to be slowed, stopped, or their effects mitigated, or conversely, if they are allowed to continue. Inclusionofa race and ethnicity dimensiononliberal arts courses provides students with an opportunity to understand and appreciate other persons and cultures. Considerationofracial and ethic similarities and differences will therefore allow students to increase and improve their knowledge about cultures other than their own. Explorationofdiverse cultural systems provides a clearer appreciation for the richnessofhuman accomplishments and the ingenuity that characterizes all human problem solving. Such an exposure reveals the multilateral sources of ideas, inventions, art and customs; it discloses the universalsofhuman experienceaswell as the diversity. Finally, cultural systems can begin to perceive and appreciate the extent to which their own cultural upbringing influences thought and preferences. Gender constitutes another important dimension of society. A sexual divisionoflabor exists in all societies; perceived differences between women and men are employed across cultures to symbolize, reflect, and reinforce specific kindsofrelationshipsinmany arenas. Imagesofwomen and men andoffemaleandmale sexuality are powerful elementsinartistic compositions among most peoplesofthe world. Every society has rules and categories about whatisappropriate behavior for females and males. Over the past 25 years, scholarsina wide range of fields from the natural Sciences to the humanities have examined the impact that traditional attitudes toward gender have hadonaccepted theories to considerintraining students to be critical thinkers, to challenge traditional wisdom, and to explore alternative perspectives and explanationsofhuman relationshipsUpdated Liberal Arts CourseListJanuary, 2003 69


All new USF students and Former Students Returning are required to take 45 semester hours to satisfy the complete liberal arts requirements. Thirty-six (36) semester hours will satisfy the general education course requirements and 9 semester hours will satisfytheexitrequirements.Theserequirementsaredistributedasfollows:General Education Requirements* English Composition Quantitative Methods Natural Sciences Social Sciences Historical Perspectives Fine Arts African, Latin American, Middle Eastern or Asian Perspectives Total Exit Requirements* Major Works and Major Issues Literature and Writing Total Semester Hours6 6666 3336 Semester Hours639*Courses may be certified in more than one area, but students may use each courseinonly one (1) area. Liberal Arts General Education Course Requirements (36 Semester Hours) English Composition: This requirement consistsofa minimumofsix (6) semester hoursofapproved course work in English Composition. Students may satisfy this requirement during the second semester freshman levelofcompositioninthe following ways: by earning a letter gradeof"C_"or better at USF or another institution or by receiving AP or18English credit. Students with satisfactory CLEP performance satisfy partofthe70


English Composition requirement, but they still need to complete ENC 1102orits equivalent. To satisfy the "Gordon Rule," a legislatively established requirement for all College studentsinFlorida, a student must earn a letter gradeof"C-" or better in eachofthese courses. Quantitative Methods: Competenceina minimumofsix (6) semester hoursofapproved mathematics coursework. These courses should include both a practical component providing students with an appreciationofhow course content relates to their everyday experiences, and an historical component-providing students with an understandingofthe applicationofthe material to other disciplines. To satisfy the Gordon Rule, students must earn a letter gradeof"C-" or better in eachofthese courses. Only the coursesinthe list below may be used to satisfy the General Education Quantitative Methods requirement. At least one course must have eitheranMACoran MGF prefix. The other course may be any courseinthe list. To satisfy the Gordon Rule, students must earn a letter gradeof"C-" or betterinthese courses. While CGS 2060 is applicable to the Gordon Rule Computation requirement, it cannot be used to satisfy USF's General Education Quantitative Methods requirement. Natural Sciences: Students should successfully complete a minimumofsix (6) semester hoursofapproved coursework in the natural Sciences. Students are encouraged to enroll in courses with a laboratory component. It is a goal that all students have at least one Science course with a laboratory; however, facilities and personnel resources prohibit that requirement at this time. Courses may be Interdisciplinary. The courses may deal with the content, theories, history, presuppositions, and methodsofthe discipline. They will include demonstrations and address problems, ambiguities, and different perspectivesinthe discipline. They will also provide students with an appreciationofhow the discipline fits within the natural Sciences and relates to their own lives and the broader human experience. Social Sciences: Students must successfully complete a minimumofsix (6) semester hoursofapproved courseworkinthe social Sciences; the courses maybe71


Interdisciplinary and need not be sequential. Coursesinthe social Sciences shall involve those disciplines considered tobesocial Sciences in that they deal theoretically and empirically with individuals and their relationships to each other and to society. Coursesmust deal with the content, theories, history, presuppositions, and methodsofthe discipline. They should also address problems, ambiguities, and different perspectivesinthe discipline. These courses will provide students with an appreciationofhow the discipline fits within the social Sciences and relates to their own lives and the broader human experience. Historical Perspectives: A minimum of six (6) semester hoursofapproved coursework in artistic, cultural, economic, intellectual, religious, social, and/or political history is required. At least three (3) semester hours will beinthe historyofWestern Civilization. Courses are not limited to thoseinthe disciplineofhistory; however, the courses will have a historical perspective in that they provide students with a senseofthe evolutionofsocieties and peoples, including analysisoftheir history. A senseofchronology is necessaryinthese courses, but not sufficient. A historical perspective also entails analysesofvarious elements, such as the intellectual, cultural, artistic, economic, social, political, and religious characteristicsofsocieties and peoples. Fine Arts: Students are required to successfully complete a minimumofthree (3) semester hoursofapproved courseworkinthe fine arts. Coursesinthe fine arts shall involve those disciplines considered tobefine artsinthat they deal theoretically and experientially with the aesthetic dimensionsofindividuals and groups.

above listed geographical areas. Course content may include social, political, and economic as well as artistic, cultural, and intellectual subject matter. The material will be presented within a geographical, chronological, and/or humanities background and will necessarily be selective. Liberal Arts Exit Requirements for Undergraduatesinall Disciplines(9Semester Hours) A student's liberal arts education will continue throughout the College years and not be limited to a relatively small numberofrequired coursesinthe first two yearsofCollege. Exit requirements will provide students with an opportunity during their junior and senior years at USF to integrate their knowledge within the context of liberal arts. Courses that satisfy the exit requirements will, when appropriate, incorporate considerations of values and ethics; International and environmental perspectives; race and ethnicity; and gender.8ytheir junior and senior years, students will have a foundationinliberal arts and be better able to reflect upon ethical issues in a constructive way. Students graduating from the CollegeofEducationorthe CollegeofEngineering may be required to complete only six hours (two exit courses) and should consult with their advisors regarding exceptions to this requirement. Students seeking second baccalaureate degrees (those coded as58)are exempt from the liberal arts exit requirements. Students will take at least oneofthe Liberal Arts Exit courses outside their disciplinary c1uster(s). For purposesofthis policy, the term "discipline" refers to the following fields: business, education, engineering, fine arts, Health Sciences, letters, natural Sciences, and social Sciences. Oneofthe Major Works and Major Issues courses, if taken outside the student's major disciplinary c1uster(s), may be taken for S/U credit with the consentofthe instructor. Only courses numbered 3000orabove may be used to satisfy the exit requirements. Exit requirements must be taken at USF. All exit requirement courses will be seminar-size coursesinwhich enrollment will be targeted at approximately 20 to 25 students. These courses will be taught by regular faculty.73


Students majoring in the CollegeofEducation are permitted to graduate with only six creditsofLiberal Arts Exit courses, allofwhich may be takeninthe College. The distributionofthose six credits varies by major. Students majoringinthe CollegeofEngineering are permitted to Graduate with only six creditsofLiberal Arts Exit courses, and may meet the LiteraturelWriting requirement by completing ENC 3211. Students graduating from the CollegeofNursing are permitted to Graduate with six creditsofLiberal Arts Exit courses, bothofwhich may be Major Works/lssues courses within the College. Major Works and Major Issues(6credit hours required): A portion of the exit requirements consistsofa minimumofsix (6) semester hoursofapproved coursework concerning major works and major issues. Courses will focus on major issues, documents, or works, and will allow students to read primary texts. These courses may allow students to delve into topicsonan Interdisciplinary basis. Students will be encouraged to write enough to fulfill Gordon Rule requirements. One of the Major Works and Major Issues courses, if taken outside the student's major discipline(s), may be taken forS/Ucredit with the consentofthe instructor. Major Works and Major Issues courses must offer the opportunity for integrationofcontent. These courses will have a liberal arts content and, when appropriate, will contain in-depth discussionsofvalues and ethics, International and environmental perspectives, race and ethnicity, and gender. Courses maybeInterdisciplinary and may be team taught. This will provide students with an opportunity toin-depth and onanInterdisciplinary basis, major topics that are important but outsideofthe major fieldofstudy. Literature and Writing (3 credit hours required):Inaddition, students will take three (3) semester hoursofapproved exit requirement courseworkinliterature and writing. These courses will allow students to read significant literatureofthe world and write at least 6,000 words. The 6,000-word requirement meets Gordon Rule requirements andisfor students who may wish to satisfy someofthis requirement with upper-level courses. The writing requirement may be satisfied with assignments that include, for instance,74


revision and process writing. The course may be taken within the major if appropriate. The courses will focusonthe dimensionsofvalues and ethics, International and environmental perspectives, race and ethnicity, and gender. All students must achieve an overall averageof"C" (2.0GPA) in the lower level requirements and a gradeof"C"orbetterineachofthe exit requirement courses. Although post-secondary foreign language courses may not be required for all Graduates, students are encouraged to become competentinat least one foreign language. Foreign language study enriches the commandofEnglish, enlarges cultural perspective, and enhances learning skills. Rule 6A.030 ("Gordon Rule") Prior to receiving an AssociateofArts degree from a public community CollegeorUniversity or a Bachelor's degree from a public University, a student shall complete successfully the followinginthe areas of communication and computation:1.Communication: Twelve semester hoursofEnglish coursesinwhich a studentisrequired to demonstrate writing skills. For the purposeofthis rule, an English course is defined as any semester-length coursewithin the general study area of the humanitiesinwhich the studentisrequired to produce written workofat least 6000 words.2.Computation: Six semester hoursofmathematics coursework at the levelofCollege algebra or above. For the purposeofthis rule, applied logic, statistics, and other such computation coursework, which may not be placed within a mathematics department, may be used to fulfill 3 hoursofthe 6 hours reqUired by this section.Inorder to receive credit for fulfillmentof6A-10.030, students must receive a gradeof"C_"or higherineach course (no "S" grades).

SectionV.Campus ProgramsNote earlier instructions regarding data for arts and Sciences, if applicable.Section V-A. Information regarding honors programsThe UniversityofSouth Florida's Four-Year Honors Program was establishedin1983 to attract studentsofsuperior academic ability and provide them with intellectual challenges and enrichment; the Two-Year Program was addedin1994.InMarch of 2002, the Honors Program became the USF Honors College.The stUdent-centered, student-oriented Honors Collegeassists students in developing and refining critical skills in thinking, reasoning, analysis, and writing. College goals are achieved by proViding opportunities for students and faculty to Interact closely in a seriesofLiberal Arts oriented, mainly team-taught, Interdisciplinary classesoflimited size and then by having students work independently on a senior thesis/project under the close supervisionoffaculty mentors. The Four-Year Track encompasses a stUdent's entire College career; it is the only four-year honors programinthe Florida State University System (SUS) system. The Two-Year Track, which began Fall, 1996 as a program mainly for Community/Junior College transfer students and upper level USF studentsisthe only upper level, University based honors programinthe SUS. AsofFall 2003, the University has approved the Honors College Research Major designed primarily for upper level Honors College students preparing for Graduate or professional School (although available to other Honors College students as well). This new major will help our very best undergraduate students appreciate the process by which knowledgeiscreated and will allow them to participateinthat process. The major will provide students with a student-centered environment in which scholarship and creativity will be encouraged and fostered. Students will have the opportunity to work with and learn from the best research faculty at USF.86


The College seeks to provide a very special and nurturingenvironment-academic,social andcultural-forthe brightest students who come to USF,inthe hopeofsignificantly increasing the numberofthese students over time. Honorsisbothanacademic program and a very important recruiting tool for the University. During the past few years, Honors has grown dramatically and now serves more than 1,300 students each year. Just a very few years ago (1996-1997) approximately 700 students were enrolled in Honors; Honors enrollment for 2003-2004 will approach 1,400. The entering classin1987 was 54 students; this year 425 new Honors students were enrolled. In 1987 the average SAT score of the entering students was about 1100; this year it was almost 1310. Honors programs are active at the several campusesofUSF. Because the St. Petersburg campusisseeking its own accreditation separate from thatofthe restofUSF, we are not counting St. Petersburg programs in this application. Nonetheless, it should be mentioned that the staffofthe USF Honors College is helping theSt.Petersburg staff to develop their own separate honors programs. Section V-B. Information regarding undergraduate research requirements orUndergraduate research, as overseen and administered by the OfficeofUndergraduate Research, is available to all students at the University. Based in the Honors College, the office hasinthe past 5 years served primarily Honors students. Services consistofInterviewing and screening student candidates, identifying faculty researchers willing to take on undergraduates, distributing stipends (when available) to researchers, monitoring undergraduates' progress and, if required, transfer to other opportunities, and organizing the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. While tracking and assessment mechanisms areina rudimentary stage, it can safely be assumed that at any pointinthe past two years between 80 and 100 undergraduates have been involvedinfaculty researchonthe Tampa campus. Except for a small portion (twenty87


five percent) that are conductedinengineering, the vast majorityofthese undergraduate research activities take placeinScience and social Science laboratories, and thus fall under the rubricofthe virtual CollegeofLiberal Arts and Sciences.Inthe absenceofspecific reporting mechanisms, undergraduate research that is being conducted independentofthe servicesofthe OfficeofUndergraduate Research cannot be quantified. However, given the existenceofresearch requirements in the DepartmentsofBiology and Chemistry and the heavy emphasis on undergraduate research activity in the DepartmentofPsychology, as well as the existenceofdepartmental Honors programsinthe last two departments, it is safe to say that the numbers are considerable.SectionV-C.Information regarding writing programsAtUSF, the Composition Program consistsofthe University's required general education courses in first-year writing, Composition I& II.

Tampa Library Acquisitions Policies for Serials and Monographs Tampa Library allocates library resources to theColleges for the purchase of retrospective materials, media resources, foreign language materials, music scores, and current imprints from presses that are not handled by the library's approval vendor. Distributionoffunds to the Collegesisby formula, taking into consideration numbersoffaculty, numbersofundergraduate and Graduate students, aggregate student credit hours, and book pricing indices. Library funds distributed to the Colleges are sub allocated to the departments by the College deans. Selectionofmaterials for purchase by a department is coordinated by the assigned Collection Development Librarian working collaboratively with that department's designated Faculty Representative. Altogether, a totaloftwenty-three Collection Development Librarians provide collection development support to fifty-five academic departments and programs. Written collection development policies for each department with their Statements of collection goals, acquisitions commitments, and collecting levels guide the selection process. Tampa Library makes available supplementary library resources to the facultyinthe formofProgram Enhancement grants-in-aid. These grants are intended to assist facultyinacquiring library materials that will remediate existing holdings qnd establish new core collections to support new and emerging degree programs and courses. Additionally, these grants afford faculty the opportunity to acquire expensive research resources such as professional videos, journal backfiles, reference tools, monographic sets, electronic databases, rare books, and facsimileswhose costs routinely exceed the purchasing powerofthe departmental allocation. Program Enhancement grants range from $500 to $15,000. Traditionally under-funded departments like Classics apply for and receive Program Enhancement funds each year. Nowinits ninth year, the Program Enhancement initiative has rewarded USF faculty with well over a half million dollarsinlibrary resources carefully targeted to meet specific collection needs and priorities. Online Program Enhancement guidelines and an application form are available on the Collection Development website.108

Tampa Library contracts with oneofthe nation's premier book vendors to receive current monographic imprints on approval from the major trade and University presses according to a pre-established profile reflecting University curriculum and research priorities. Approval shipments are received by the library each week and reviewed by Collection Development Librarians and Interested faculty. Annual funding for approval purchases hovers near the one million dollar mark. Approximately forty percent of approval titles arrive shelf-ready and are available for circulationintwo weeks or less after they are unpackedinAcquisitions. Plans are to have the vendor ship all approval books shelf-ready starting with the new fiscal year, July 2003. Serial renewals account for 56%ofTampa Library's resources budget. While mostofTampa Library's subscriptions are print, an increasing numberoftitles are systematically being converted to electronic access. Whenever itispossible to doso,print subscriptions are being cancelled in favorofthe electronic edition. Overhead and other associated cost savings from eliminating the print are not insubstantial, and the library's experienceisthat both faculty and students prefer electronic journals to print. Consortial contracts signed with other State and regional academic libraries and major journal pUblishers like Elsevier, Wiley, Kluwer, ACS, and ACM have, in fact, increased the numberofelectronic subscriptions available to USF at no additional cost. USF Libraries is a charter JSTOR member and recently transferred mostofits JSTOR print titles to remote storageinan effort to free up desperately needed shelf spaceinPeriodicals. Funding for new subscriptions is always very limited, and it's generally understood by faculty that in order to buy a new title an equivalent dollar amountofexisting titles must be dropped. Faculty is asked to submit a request and justification form to Collection Development for each title requested. Online Journal Enhancement guidelines and an application form are available from the Collection Development website. 109
