Whereas the Academic Senate ROSTRUM is a printed communication to the local community college senates, and
Whereas the ROSTRUM is an excellent vehicle for informing the local senates on the status of shared governance, and
Whereas many times it is discouraging to work with our local campuses on shared governance, and
Whereas it would be uplifting to hear about the breakthroughs that occur at different campuses concerning shared governance,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to include articles in the ROSTRUM which will highlight "model" shared governance processes and success stories concerning shared governance.
M/S/C Disposition: Executive Committee
The local senates chair has written three articles for the Rostrum based on input from local senates. Those articles included topics of the geocluster network model, faculty primacy, and on welfare reform legislation.
