313.03 Academic Convocations

Faculty members are expected to attend formal academic exercises of the University and to wear on such occasions appropriate academic attire (Statutes, Article XI, Section 7).

313.04 Identification Cards

Faculty are expected to have a university identification card, called a PantherCard. The PantherCard Office is responsible for making identification cards for students and faculty. An identification card is required to check-out books from the University libraries, and is requested by various offices of the University as proof of faculty status in order to receive services. The faculty identification card remains valid as long as the faculty member is employed. It need not be renewed annually but must be returned upon termination of employment.

313.05 Ethical Behavior with Regard to Complimentary Textbooks

The University Senate passed the following resolution on February 2, 1989:

"The distribution of complimentary textbooks is an important part of the process whereby professors review the full range of instructional materials available for their courses. However, the integrity of this process must be respected.

Selling complimentary copies of textbooks adversely affects the entire academic community.

Professor-authors are deprived of economic return in royalties, and incentives to write textbooks are diminished.

Students generally do not benefit from the sale of complimentary copies, as these books are sold at or only slightly below the new book price.

Selling complimentary textbooks inflates the cost of all textbooks, as publishers must compensate for revenue lost from the sale of new books.

Selling complimentary copies violates the tradition of respect by professors for the intellectual work of their colleagues and for the textbook publishers.

The future of availability of complimentary textbooks may be seriously jeopardized by the reluctance of publishers to risk further financial loss.

Faculty members receive complimentary textbooks as a result of their position at the University. These textbooks should not be viewed as a source of faculty income. We recommend the following:

1. Complimentary textbooks are not to be resold for faculty profit. The books may be maintained for faculty reference or contributed to a library for student reference.

2. Solicitors for complimentary copies are forbidden from campus.

3. The campus bookstore may not sell copies which are identifiable as complimentary copies whatever their source may be."
