Whereas Academic Senate resolution 21.04 S94 supported the inclusion of full-time counseling and library faculty in the calculations of 75/25, and to implement the resolution the Academic Senate worked through the consultation process and the 75/25 Task Force to gain agreement for this inclusion, and

Whereas at the September 1994 task force meeting, all constituent groups in attendance agreed to such inclusion (CEO representative was not in attendance), and

Whereas Chancellor Mertes was not willing to make a recommendation to the Board of Governors until the Academic Senate and the CEO's came to some agreement and such agreement has not been reached despite Senate attempts to meet with CEO's on this issue, and

Whereas the library faculty new hire provision has sunset, and library and counseling services have continued to diminish to the detriment of student success and transfer because counseling and library faculty are not being hired because of the need to meet the established 75/25 regulations;


Resolved that the Academic Senate reaffirm its support for the inclusion of all counseling and library faculty in the 75/25 ratio calculations and base year numbers, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the President to continue to meet with the CEO representatives and enter the issue into the consultation process again in order to make a recommendation to the Board of Governors before the Senate 1997 Fall Session, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate collect data on numbers of full-time faculty in disciplines not already represented or proposed (such as DSP&S) in the 75/25calculations to determine a future recommendation for their inclusion.

Summary: 
Reaffirm its support for the inclusion of all counseling and library faculty in the 75/25 ratio calculations and base year numbers, and direct the President to continue to meet with the CEO representatives and enter the issue into the consultation process again in order to make a recommendation to the Board of Governors before the Senate 1997 Fall Session. Collect data on numbers of full-time faculty in disciplines not already represented or proposed (such as DSP&S) in the 75/25calculations to determine a future recommendation for their inclusion.
Status Report: 

Title 5 53309, Rules for Calculating Full-Time Equivalent Faculty (FTEF) Attributable to Full-Time Faculty, explicitly includes non-instructional faculty in 75/25 calculations.
