Whereas vocational and academic programs are sometimes threatened with termination through faculty retirements and economics, and
Whereas many colleges are not in compliance with Title 5 Sections 55800 and 55810 which require local boards to adopt procedures for program termination and file them with the Chancellor's Office, and
Whereas UC and CSU require a systemwide approval of program termination, and
Whereas there is a need to develop clear regulations for termination of programs,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to work with the Chancellor's Office to develop standards and regulations for program termination.
M/S/C Disposition: Chancellor's Office
The Senate paper, Program Discontinuance: A Faculty Perspective, fulfilled the requirements of this resolution.
