Whereas the importance of active participation in hiring decisions is emphasized by the Commission for the Review of the Master Plan for Higher Education and in the September 17, 1987, draft of AB 1725, and

Whereas there is often a lack of effective faculty involvement in hiring, and

Whereas identification of which positions are to be filled is an integral part of the hiring process, and

Whereas a thoughtful planning process to determine which positions are to be filled requires knowledge of the budget,

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Educational Policies Committee to conduct a study of faculty involvement in hiring in local districts, including budget implications, and

Resolved that the Educational Policies Committee prepare a position paper revealing the results of this study and making recommendations as to how faculty can most effectively participate in hiring.
