Faculty Senate elects chairman by Steve Largent Editor-in-Chief The Faculty Senate of Weber State College elected a new chairman and vice chairman to serve for the 1983-84 academic year at its regular monthly meeting Thursday afternoon. Dr. Dick Rogers, a member of the math department faculty and current chairman of the Faculty Senate's curriculum committee, defeated Dr. Dan Litchford and will serve as the new chairman. Litchford was seeking his second term as chairman. Sally Arway, a member of the Library staff, was elected vice chair as she outdistanced Dr. Litchford in the balloting for this position. Both Rogers and Arway will assume their new posts in June. The Faculty Senate also approved specific criteria to be used in determining eligibility for Emeritus Faculty rank. The new policy reads: All faculty who are tenured, hold academic rank and retire from Weber State are eligible for emeritus status at retirement upon recommendation of the president and approval by the Institutional Council. The Senate also clarified the policy concerning faculty resignations and retirement. The policy relating to the granting of academic rank was also changed slightly to make it consistent with existing policy. The promotion policy was also changed to make it possible for faculty members who teach in fields where no doctorate is available to be able to be promoted from one academic rank to another. Exemptions along these lines were granted to certain fields within the schools of humantities, allied health and technology. Dr. Richard Sadler, chairman of the Salary and Annuities Committee, discussed with the Senate the status of the salary proposals, which was really quite simple. Thanks to the Legislature's failure to appropriate funds, no salary increases will be forth comming this year. The Legislature did however appropriate $225,000 which will be used to establish a dental insurance fund. In student related items, the Senate approved changes in the curriculum in the Management-Logistics program. The Senate also approved an Ethnic Studies concentration for the Bachelor of General Studies degree and approved a Chemical Technician program to be achieved with an associate degree or a certificate. Approval was also grated for the school of Technology to continue its Computer Maintenance Technology program. A new policy governing eligiblity for student activities was also approved. Among the new standards approved were: All organization officers, leaders and members with authority to represent the organization both within and outside the college, must be matriculated students, currently enrolled and working toward a degree of certification. Furthermore, they must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Althletes must meet criteria etablished by the NCAA, the Big Sky Conference and the Mountain West Athletic Conference. Any organization or program may establish more stringent eligiblity standards provided that such standards are consistent with the College's non-discrimination policy.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
