Whereas the intent of AB 1725 was to establish shared governance reflecting a primary role for faculty in academic and professional matters, and
Whereas many local senates have not reached satisfactory levels of governance as granted to them by Title 5. Section 53200-203, and
Whereas it is estimated that 30 percent of the community colleges have no established shared governance agreements with their senates, yet all have reported to the Chancellor's Office that they do,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend that the Board of Governors direct the Chancellor's Office to survey the system to determine if collegial consultation agreements are completed, including 1) requiring a copy of the local board approved policy and procedures be sent with the response, and 2) require a sign off by the local board president and the local senate president, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges gather the information about how the shared governance policy and procedures are working and reaffirm its role in providing technical assistance in the implementation of this mandated reform.
