Whereas a major part of AB 1725's reform of community colleges was to increase the authority of community college faculty, and
Whereas it has now been four years since that bill became law, and
Whereas information has been collected about district compliance with specific mandates of that bill, but no information has been gathered about whether respect for faculty and collegiality in general have increased,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to study whether community colleges have become more collegial or whether districts have complied only with the narrow and specific requirements to reach agreement in specified areas, and
Resolved that this report together with any recommendations for further actions shall be presented to a future session.
