Professional Development for Adjunct Faculty in Pre-transfer Level Reading, Writing, ESL and Mathematics Courses

Resolution Number: 
Assigned to : 
Professional Standards

Whereas, Over 70% of first time college students place into pre-transfer level reading, writing, English as a Second Language (ESL) or mathematics courses;

Whereas, Data from the System Office indicate most of our pre-transfer level reading, writing, ESL and mathematics courses are taught by adjunct faculty; and

Whereas, Adjunct faculty generally do not have the same access to professional development activities that full-time faculty have;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges encourage local colleges to ensure better access for adjunct faculty to attend professional development activities related to these pre-transfer level courses. MSC Disposition: Local Senates

Status Report: 

We have tried to address this many times, but the issue is certainly not resolved.  Still, I think we have done what the resolution asks for in numerous ways.
