Whereas the passage of Proposition 209 has caused many California citizens to believe that affirmative action no longer exists, and
Whereas California community colleges should morally support affirmative action despite the passage of Proposition 209,
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge local senates to continue to support affirmative action, including but not limited to: 1. A minimum of one hour of training in affirmative action for hiring committees, 2. Promotion of faculty intern and mentoring programs 3. Wide distribution of announcements and recruitment for faculty positions
Breakout held in Spring 2009.
