Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges regularly adopts resolutions regarding academic and professional matters, and
Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges' resolutions are not always implemented at the local levels, thereby negating the power and force of the resolutions, and
Whereas the strength of the adopted resolutions passed depends on local implementation,
Resolved that the Academic Senate urge local academic senate presidents to
a. inform and educate themselves about the resolutions adopted at fall and spring plenary sessions, and
b. enforce and implement these resolutions on their campuses, and
c. use, as needed, the resources and support provided by the Academic Senate for local education and implementation of Academic Senate resolutions; such resources include, but are not limited to, ombudsperson, technical assistance program at different levels, focused workshops, and the summer leadership institute, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to continue to advocate vigorously for Academic Senate positions with elected state leaders, the Board of Governors, Chancellor's Office staff, the Legislature, and state agencies and groups.
Letters were sent to local senate presidents. Advocacy efforts are ongoing.
