Joint Faculty Projects: Avoiding Conflict of Interest

Resolution Number: 
Assigned to : 
Intersegmental Issues

Whereas funds are provided to the community colleges by the State of California to support joint intersegmental faculty projects, and

Whereas the amount of money allocated on a request for proposals and competitive process basis has dramatically decreased over the three years of this funding, and

Whereas this has significantly decreased the ability of local faculty to propose and be funded for such joint intersegmental projects, and

Whereas the Executive Committee of the Academic Senate is now involved in advising the Chancellor regarding priority Joint Faculty Projects funding (Oct. 7-8, 1994. Executive Committee Agenda Item III. B), and

Whereas the Academic Senate received funding during 1993-94 for a project administered by the Executive Committee while serving in this advisory role,

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to seek the establishment of a clear system policy and process concerning the prioritizing of Joint Faculty Projects funding that avoids any real or perceived conflicts of interest between its role as advisor to the Chancellor on approval of Joint Faculty Projects and its own participation in projects funded from this source.
