Local Senates
Status: 
Completed

Whereas the mandates of shared governance require that each local senate partner with the local college president in fulfilling the mission of the college, and

Whereas implementation of shared governance varies from college to college and across time, and

Whereas ways of monitoring implementation and maintenance of shared governance at colleges across the State are inconsistent,

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges request that local senates submit an annual report assessing the effectiveness of shared governance at their colleges and in their districts, and

Resolved that the Executive Committee develop, publish, and disseminate guidelines for assessing implementation of shared governance at the local level.
MSR

Summary: 
Request that local senates submit an annual report assessing the effectiveness of shared governance at their colleges and in their districts, and develop, publish, and disseminate guidelines for assessing implementation of shared governance at the local level.
Recommendation: 
Deem this to be unfeasible This would likely not be feasible for most Senates. It also somewhat overlaps into the accreditation self-study standards around institutional effectiveness and is therefore a somewhat redundant effort.
Status Report: 

This resolution was not on this year or last year's goals so its status is not clear.
