May 19, 2020 Representative Assembly Meeting


May 11, 2020

Dear Colleagues:

The fifth meeting of the 2019-20 academic year is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19th from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be held via Zoom. Representative Assembly members will receive the Zoom link directly. If you are a Senate member who is not an Assembly Representative and you would like to attend the meeting, please RSVP to Ashley Welch at awelch@ucsd.edu to obtain the login instructions. All Senate members are welcome to attend.

The Notice of Meeting (agenda) and all pertinent documents are available on the following webpages.

  1. On the Senate’s homepage under Assembly/Council Meetings, on the lower right side of the Senate Homepage
  2. On the Representative Assembly-Schedule page.

Although the meeting will start at 3:30, we are asking meeting participants to begin logging in at 3:15 to allow time for each participant to be admitted into the meeting. We also ask that your Zoom name match your real name, so that you may be identified. The meeting materials include this and other important Zoom information for this meeting.

Executive Vice Chancellor Elizabeth Simmons will address the Assembly at this meeting, and the following proposals will be presented.

  • Proposal to Amend Divisional Regulation 702, Requirements for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) Degree, Rady School of Management.
  • Proposal to Establish a Master of Computational Social Science, Division of Social Sciences.
  • Proposal to Transfer the Master of Advanced Studies in Architecture-Based Enterprise Systems Engineering major (CS82) to the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering.
  • Proposal to Offer Courses Used to Fulfill the Entry Level Writing Requirement for Baccalaureate Credit, and to Amend Regulation 600, Campuswide Graduation Requirements and Regulation 505, Repetition of Courses.
  • Proposal to Amend Bylaw 166, Ex Officio Members.
  • Proposal to Amend Bylaw 82, Representative Assembly.
  • Proposal to Amend Senate Bylaw 241, Senate Awards.
  • 2019-2020 Distinguished Teaching Awards.
  • Proposal to Establish a New Bylaw, Appendix 5.12, Bylaws of the Faculty of Seventh College.
  • Proposal to Establish a New Regulation 635, Academic Requirements of Seventh College.
  • Proposal to Amend Regulation 615, Academic Requirements of Marshall College.

As this is an extraordinary large number of items for any meeting, and Zoom meetings do not lend themselves to free-flowing discussions, especially at meetings with over 100 attendees, I ask that you please review the meeting materials in advance of the meeting and send questions to academicsenateoffice@ucsd.edu with the agenda topic number in the subject line of the email, by noon on Monday, May 18th. Your questions will be shared with the presenters so that they may be prepared to discuss them in advance. Discussion will necessarily be limited.

Primary Representatives and Alternate Representatives should coordinate their attendance and voting for this meeting. Both may attend; however, Alternate Representatives may only vote in the absence of the Primary Representative. Please coordinate who will attend and cast votes, in advance of the meeting.

Stay healthy,

Maripat Corr
Academic Senate, San Diego Division
