Faculty Mentoring

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to establish Faculty Mentoring Programs for new faculty members, both full-time and part-time.

Full-Time/Part-Time Faculty Ratio

Whereas the intent of AB 1725 (Chapter 973, Statutes of 1988) is to improve the ratio of full-time instructors to part-time instructors in California Community Colleges, and
