UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA BOARD OF REGENTS
Educational Planning and Policy CommitteeMay 12, 2011Agenda Item:Board of Regents Policy: Academic Freedom and Responsibilityreviewreview/actionactiondiscussionPresenters:Senior Vice President/Provost Thomas Sullivan Purpose: policy background/context oversight strategic positioning To consider a proposed amendment to the Academic Freedom and Responsibility Policy. The amendment initially was proposed by the Faculty Senate Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure and has been endorsed by the Faculty Senate. Outline of Key Points/Policy Issues: The proposed amendment moves the phrase without institutional discipline or restraint from the end of the sentence in Section II that defines academic freedom to earlier in the sentence. The purpose of the proposed change is to clarify, consistent with the original intent of a 2009 amendment to the policy, that academic freedom applies to all of the activities listed in Section II. In light of discussion at the March 2011 meeting, during with the Committee reviewed the proposed change, commas have been added before and after the phrase in question. Background Information: The Academic Freedom and Responsibility policy was last amended in June, 2009. President's Recommendation for Action:The President recommends that the Board adopt the proposed amendment to the Academic Freedom and Responsibility Policy.

ACADEMIC FREEDOM AND RESPONSIBILITY
SECTION I. GUIDING PRINCIPLES. The Board of Regents (Board) of the University of Minnesota (University) reaffirms the principles of academic freedom and responsibility. These are rooted in the belief that the mind is ennobled by the pursuit of understanding and the search for truth, and the state well served when instruction is available to all at an institution dedicated to the advancement of learning. These principles are also refreshed by the recollection that there iscommune vinculum omnibus artibus, a common bond through all the arts. SECTION II. ACADEMIC FREEDOM. Academic freedom is the freedom, institutional discipline or restraint without, to discuss all relevant matters in the classroom, to explore all avenues of scholarship, research, and creative expression, and to speak or write without institutional discipline or restraint on matters of public concern as well as on matters related to professional duties and the functioning of the University.
SECTION III. ACADEMIC RESPONSIBILITY. Academic responsibility implies the faithful performance of professional duties and obligations, the recognition of the demands of the scholarly enterprise, and the candor to make it clear that when one is speaking on matters of public interest, one is not speaking for the institution.

Educational Planning and Policy CommitteeMay 12, 2011Agenda Item: Tuition and FeesBoard of Regents Policy:reviewreview/actionactiondiscussionPresenters:Senior Vice President/Provost Thomas Sullivan Vice President and CFO/ Richard Pfutzenreuter Budget Director Julie Tonneson Purpose: policy background/context oversight strategic positioning The President is recommending a change in the definition of academic fees which is defined in the Board policy on tuition and fees which establishes the basic principles for assessing, collecting, and managing tuition and fees at the University of Minnesota. The fees section of the current Board policy on tuition and fees defines three types of fees: administrative fees, course fees and academic fees. Outline of Key Points/Policy Issues: Each year, the Presidents annual operating budget to the Board of Regents includes a summary of student fees for approval. In recent years, questions have been raised as to the nature and level of those fees, so the Budget Office is conducting a thorough review and analysis of all fees charged to students. The study focuses on defining and categorizing existing fees, summarizing the metrics around those fees (numbers, types, dollar levels, revenues generated, thresholds etc.), reviewing the approval processes for the fees and raising policy and procedural questions associated with existing fees and future fee proposals. The study does not include a review of student services fees which is a separate policy of the Board of Regents. The administration is recommending a new definition to replace the academic fee definition in current policy and is also recommending the addition of a new fee definition regarding durable goods fees.
Background Information: There are two Regents Policies that address student fees: the Student Services Fee policy and the policy on Tuition and Fees. In addition, the annual operating budget presented to the Board of Regents each spring contains a listing of specific fees presented for approval. The Finance and Operations Committee requested that the administration undertake a review of fees during the establishment of its annual work plan in 2009. The administration has made two presentations to the Finance and Operations Committee regarding the fee review: one in December 2009 and another in February 2011. President's Recommendation for Action:The President recommends approval of the proposed policy change.
