Whereas a process exists for technical assistance in achieving the faculty responsibilities and options for consultation on academic and professional issues as described in Section 53200 of Title 5, and
Whereas there has been a turnover of administrators and trustees since the passage of AB 1725 and the revision to Section 53200 language, and
Whereas many of the mutual agreements that are in effect between the local senates and their governing boards with respect to these academic and professional issues were made many years ago;
Resolved that the Academic Senate encourage local senates to utilize the existing technical assistance process offered jointly by the Community College League of California and the Academic Senate for training and education of faculty, administrators, and trustees in shared governance, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate work with the Chancellor's Office to create a technical assistance committee to review local shared governance agreements for compliance with Title 5, Section 53200.
The Senate promotes the technical assistance process at each Leadership Institute. The reduction in staff and resources at the Chancellor's Office render the second resolved not feasible. We ask that this resolution be declared completed and removed.
