Academic Senate Website Grows
The Academic Senate's website continues to grow as an unequalled source of valuable information. Visitors will find notices of and registration forms for upcoming Academic Senate events, including pre-session area meetings and the increasingly popular summer institutes (leadership, curriculum, technology, and student leadership). The site also features position papers - both adopted and in draft form -and resolutions passed by the body. In addition, there will soon be a list of papers of interest to faculty by groups outside the Senate which are now available through the Senate Office. Another invaluable source of information is the list of links to other key sites, such as web pages of faculty organizations, the Chancellor's Office, the Accrediting Commission, the Community College League of California, professional organizations, and local senates.
And there is more to come. Planned for the future is a page for websites of interest to faculty on a number of pedagogical topics, which Carolyn Seefer (Publications Committee) will develop. Similarly, the Senate Office is working on an all new, easy-to-read format for the site.
Clearly, anyone interested in faculty issues, especially leaders of local senates, should check this site regularly. The web address is http://www.academicsenate.cc.ca.us. Bookmark it now.
The articles published in the Rostrum do not necessarily represent the adopted positions of the academic senate. For adopted positions and recommendations, please browse this website.
