Whereas writing grant applications is a high-risk venture requiring an enormous investment of time for research, program structure, curriculum writing, administrative negotiations, and budgeting, and

Whereas that investment of time is often accomplished during evenings, weekends, break times, and other off-duty times, and

Whereas when the grant application is successful and funded, that investment of time can be most beneficial to the college and its programs, and

Whereas when the grant application is unsuccessful, the person(s) writing the application are met with frustration of knowing that their enormous personal sacrifice of time-and often money-will be unrewarded,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge the Chancellor's Office to consult with the Academic Senate and create guidelines for applying for Board of Governors/Chancellor's Office grants, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge the Chancellor's Office to provide grant writing workshops for faculty who are interested in applying for Board of Governors/Chancellor's Office grants.
