Whereas the California Student Association of Community Colleges (CalSACC) is sponsoring SB 1347, and
Whereas the California community colleges remain the only entity of higher education in the state with only one student member on its governing board, and
Whereas organizations within the community college family are trying to amend the bill to delete the language that would allow the students to nominate their members,
Resolved that the Academic Senate reaffirm its support of SB 1347 (as of April2000), and
Resolved that the Academic Senate support the nomination of student members to the Board of Governors by California Student Association of Community Colleges (CalSACC) similar to the way that the faculty Board of Governors members are nominated by the Academic Senate.
