Whereas the Academic Senate has consistently recognized the importance of student access to their instructors, and

Whereas 40% to 60% of all California community college instruction is by part-time instructors who are not compensated for office hours, and

Whereas students of such part-time faculty are not guaranteed access to their instructors outside of the classroom,


Resolved that the Academic Senate actively support the concept of AB 301 (Cunneen), as of 4/12/97, which would provide a state funding incentive to encourage community college districts to compensate those part-time faculty who teach at least a 40% load for holding one office hour per week.
