Consultation with the Chancellor's Office
Status: 
Completed

Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges supports the concept of shared governance within California community colleges, and

Whereas the Chancellor's Office's newly proposed legislative process would violate the principles of shared governance by permitting the Chancellor's Office to unilaterally make decisions on legislative positions (supporting or opposing bills), and

Whereas the Chancellor's Office's newly proposed legislative process would require all other groups, except the Chancellor's Office, to bring their legislative positions to the Consultation Council for approval, and

Whereas the Chancellor's Office's newly proposed legislative process permits the Chancellor's Office to make decisions on legislative positions independent of the Board of Governors,


Resolved that the Academic Senate oppose the Chancellor's Office's newly proposed legislative process.


Resolved that the Academic Senate continue to oppose any legislation proposed by the Chancellor's Office whenever that proposed legislation has not gone through the Consultation process.

Status Report: 

The Board of Governors accepted a modified version of delegated legislation approval authority. It is to be evaluated this year.
