Status Report

The Standards and Practices Committee recommended to the Executive Committee that the number of awards be maintained at four, with two full-time and two part-time faculty awards annually.  Approved by the Execuive Committee in February 2017, the award will become a statewide award in which local senates will nominate one full-time and one part-time faculty member. 

Whereas, Recognizing both full- and part-time faculty through the Hayward Award is a laudable and important goal;

Whereas, Alternating the recognition of part-time and full-time faculty in each area annually has reduced the opportunity to recognize full-time faculty to receive recognition; and

Whereas, This practice has created confusion at some colleges that have completed their local award programs and has made it difficult to recognize both full- and part-time faculty;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges evaluate the feasibility of expanding the Hayward Award to recognize both full- and part-time faculty in each area annually.
