Whereas the Legislature has appropriated $10 million for noncredit matriculation for 1997-98, and the Chancellor's Office has asked for another$12 million for 1998-99, and

Whereas such appropriations represent the first time that noncredit matriculation has been funded and, indeed, the 1997-98 funding was not based on a proposal by the community college system and thus no plans exist for its expenditure, and

Whereas the Academic Senate has long been committed to matriculation services and quality noncredit programs,


Resolved that the Academic Senate request of the Chancellor's Office full participation by the Academic Senate in the development of the noncredit matriculation program and funding guidelines, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate urge the Board of Governors to modify its 1998-99 noncredit matriculation budget change proposal (BCP) from a 1:3 state: district match to a1:1 match in line with the 1997-98 legislative budget language, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate urge the Board of Governors to include in its requirements for expenditure of noncredit matriculation funds that districts be prohibited from supplanting existing funds and be required to report how both the state appropriation and district match are spent, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate urge the Board of Governors to include a requirement for adequate support of counseling faculty positions, of which 75% should be full-time, in the requirements for district noncredit matriculation programs.
