TOPS Codes

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges request that the Chancellor's Office include representatives from the Academic Senate in the current review and revision of the TOPS Codes.

Part-Time (Adjunct) Faculty

Whereas a large percentage of recent full-time contract hires have previously been employed by their districts as non-contract (adjunct) faculty, and

Whereas the ethnic make-up of currently employed non-contract faculty does not reflect the ethnic and cultural diversity consistent with the existing or projected demographics of California, and

Staff Diversity Data

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge the Board of Governors to direct the Chancellor's Office to disseminate in its entirety the staff diversity in hiring data collected from the districts.

College Reporting

Whereas AB 1725 (Chapter 973, Statutes of 1988) requires local boards of trustees to submit to the Chancellor's Office affirmations of compliance and report success rates in increasing the hiring of ethnic minorities, and

Whereas the goal that 30% of all new hires by 1992-93 be ethnic minorities will best be met if every district strives to meet that goal, and

Whereas the goal cannot be realized if individual districts assume that other districts will exceed this 30% goal, leaving them free not to meet it,

Ethnic Minority Faculty Hires

Whereas AB 1725 (Chapter 973, Statutes of 1988) states, "...that by fiscal year 1992-93, 30% of all new hires in the California Community Colleges as a system will be ethnic minorities," and

Whereas districts are including classified and administrative hires when reporting hires in this category, and

Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is concerned that such practices may reduce the number of ethnic minority faculty hires,

30% Ethnic Minority Hires

Whereas AB 1725 (Chapter 973, Statutes of 1988) affirms the dynamic role of the California Community Colleges in the postsecondary arena, and

Whereas the Chancellor's Office for the California Community Colleges is vital in facilitating and guiding local districts in implementing the mandates set forth in the legislation,

Affirmative Action Document on Hiring

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges adopt the paper from the Affirmative Action Committee entitled, "Ramifications and Implications of Affirmative Action on Hiring."

Consultation

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to study and recommend changes in the Chancellor's consultation process.

Faculty Role in Governance

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to propose models for local senates to increase the faculty role in governance in accordance with Section 53203 (a), Revisions to Title 5, Regulations on Academic Senates as required by AB 1725 (Chapter 973, Statutes of 1988).

Standing Committee Name Change

Whereas the standing committee currently named "Legislative Committee of the Academic Senate of the California Community Colleges" intends to enlarge the scope of its responsibility,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges change the name of the Legislative Committee to "Legislation and Governmental Relations Committee," to reflect its added responsibility in relationships with the Chancellor's Office and the Board of Governors.
