Whereas indicators of student success for determining future funding of Partnership for Excellence must be fair and accurate, and
Whereas faculty have the most expertise in assessing fair and accurate measures of student success in those courses, and
Whereas student success is clearly an academic and professional matter, and
Whereas systemwide goals for Partnership for Excellence that relate to student performance were not developed in consultation with primary reliance on faculty,
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge the Chancellor to rely primarily on the Academic Senate in the consultation process to recommend measures of student success in the Partnership for Excellence.
The Partnership for Excellence program and funding have been discontinued.
