Webinar - The Role of the Academic Senate in Faculty Evaluations and Implementing Advocacy, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (AIDE)

The Role of the Academic Senate in Faculty Evaluations and Implementing Advocacy, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (AIDE) 

March 10, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

California community colleges have faced dramatically shifting circumstances in 2020, accentuating the need to reassess policies and procedures in the building of equity-minded organizations, which includes faculty evaluations. Assembly Bill 1725 (Vasconcellos, 1988), California Education Code, and the California Code of Regulations provide that the local academic senate has an inherent professional responsibility to ensure the quality of their faculty peers, and that the bargaining agent is to consult with the academic senate prior to engaging in collective bargaining regarding faculty evaluation. In this webinar, community college leaders will explore processes for reviewing local peer evaluation and tenure review procedures with a focus on AIDE.  Participants will explore AIDE and potential plans to consider for the upcoming year.   

Note:  This is part of an EDAC series of DEI webinars in response to the recommendations from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office DEI Workgroup. This webinar emphasizes the role of the academic senate in the peer evaluations process, especially in focusing on AIDE.
