Whereas California community colleges have a variety of ways to honor full- and part-time faculty, and
Whereas recognizing the achievements of colleagues has become an important function of local senates,
Resolved that the Academic Senate hold a breakout at the Fall 2000 Plenary Session that presents a variety of ideas for recognizing and awarding faculty achievement.
In 2007 the Academic Senate has created the Faculty Freedom Fighters Award and began a substantive review of all awards and when they will be offered. Awards will be honored at appropriate institutes, be given their own Rostrum, and will be publicized at plenary sessions.
