Whereas the empowerment of academic senates with regard to curricular and other professional matters implies the assumption of further responsibilities by the faculty, and

Whereas these responsibilities necessitate staff development,


Resolved that the Academic Senate establish a joint committee of members of the Research Committee and the Local Senates Committee to initiate systematic research as well as faculty training on internal governance in community colleges, with primary emphasis on curricular matters, and

Resolved that the Executive Committee seek resources to research and publish the history of the Academic Senate and establish a research project on local academic senates such as the one proposed in the background paper written by Professor Richard Men.
