Whereas, The California Community Colleges system has prioritized inclusion, diversity, equity and anti-racism (IDEA) work—including through the CCCCO Call to Action, the DEI Task Force Recommendations, and the Vision for Success goals—to eliminate equity gaps;

Whereas, Local academic senates have an integral role in advancing inclusion, diversity, equity, and anti-racism through academic and professional matters; and

Whereas, Information related to inclusion, diversity, equity, and anti-racism may not always be disseminated to all faculty at local colleges and districts and therefore all faculty would benefit from the creation of a local inclusion, diversity, equity, and anti- racism liaison to act as a conduit between the Academic Senate for Community Colleges and local faculty;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local academic senates to identify a faculty member to act as an inclusion, diversity, equity, and anti-racism (IDEA) liaison to facilitate communication among local faculty, the local senate, and the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges.
