Whereas local academic senate presidents and other officers are responsible for the implementation of AB 1725 (Chapter 973, Statutes of 1988) at the direction of the faculty who elected them, and

Whereas the accountability of the academic senate president and other senate officers is therefore to the faculty and not to the administration, and


Whereas differences will inevitably arise between academic senate officers and administration over the exercise of their AB 1725 (Chapter 973, Statutes of 1988) responsibilities, and

Whereas evaluation of the performance of the academic senate president and other senate officers does not lie with the administration,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges adopt the following position: that academic senate leaders should not be evaluated or subject to reprimand by administration for the way they perform the duties and obligations of their office, and

Resolved that this position be sent to all CEOs for distribution to their administration.
