A letter to this effect was sent to senate presidents and deans of counseling.
Whereas counseling programs, as related to the mission of the community colleges, are critical to assure that students achieve their educational and career goals, and
Whereas counseling faculty, regardless of their assignment (EOPS, DSP&S, CalWORKs), must meet the minimum qualifications for employment in California community colleges, as stipulated in Title 5 Regulations, and
Whereas all counseling faculty must have access to training and development in the counseling discipline,
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge local senates to encourage their institutions' counseling departments to include all counseling faculty, regardless of their assignments in counseling department activities.
