Whereas, Having the faculty minimum qualifications for specific positions delineated in Title 5 makes updating them more difficult;
Whereas, Some faculty positions, such as learning assistance faculty, Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) counselor, Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) counselor, and noncredit faculty, have their minimum qualifications explicitly delineated in Title 5 regulation rather than in the Disciplines list; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend to the Board of Governors that faculty minimum qualifications for specific disciplines be removed from Title 5 and placed on the Disciplines List.
MSC Disposition: Local Senates, Board of Governors, Chancellor’s Office
The entire Disciplines List will be taken through the rules making process to incude all minimum qualifications. As this goes forward, revised title 5 sections should be submitted to remove the existing minimum qualifications. UPDATE: All of the parenthetical minimum qualifications in Title 5 have been incorporated into the disciplines list. Furthermore, because changes to the Disciplines List are the same as a change to Title 5, removing the MQs from Title 5 is irrelevant. The various organizations that represent faculty covered by the parenthetical MQs should be contacted and educated about the Disciplines List revision process. 2017 -18: The chair will provide how this resolution will be addressed and a timeline. Note: This resolutions is 7 years old and should be addressed this year.
