Whereas the Institute for Instructional Improvement and Innovation has demonstrated its effectiveness and support in providing faculty development services, and

Whereas the Flex Calendar Evaluation Project has identified several goals that must be accomplished to strengthen the flex program, and

Whereas the shortcomings of the UCLA/Moorpark Draft Report have demonstrated the need for a follow-up which is conducted by a community college entity like 4I's, which is more familiar with our professional development needs, and

Whereas the Fund for Instructional Improvement, which initially funded 4I's, should be freed to focus its resources on new and innovative projects,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges ask the Chancellor's office to use the funds that were directed in 1989-90 to the UCLA/Moorpark Staff Development Study to fund the Institute for Instructional Improvement and that such funding continue for three academic years so that the crucial issues of program effectiveness and outcomes can be measured, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend to the Academic Senate/Chief Instructional Officers (AS/CIOs) group that they serve as the Advisory Committee for the 4I's, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend to the Chancellor's Office that 4I's continue to work on its current projects, that it follow up on the goals and projects identified on the Flex Calendar Evaluation Project, and that it pursue the Faculty and Staff Development recommendations made by the Chancellor's Office.
