Whereas a district that appoints an affirmative action officer/representative as a voting member of a selection/interviewing committee puts that individual in a conflict of interest position, and

Whereas an affirmative action officer/representative who votes for or against the selection of a job applicant is not then focusing attention upon due process, and

Whereas an affirmative action officer/representative who votes for the selection of a job applicant is unlikely to recommend that the process be aborted because of a violation in due process,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to recommend to their boards of trustees that neither the affirmative action officer nor the affirmative action representative serve as a voting member of a selection or interviewing committee.
