Whereas, it is critical for local full and part-time faculty leaders to attend plenary sessions and other Academic Senate for California Community College institutes for leadership development and to learn the state landscape;

Whereas, it is necessary to train the next generation of leaders at each college, and recent initiatives, grants, increases in categorical funds, and changes to the curriculum processes all require locate senate input and approval; and

Whereas, many local senates may not have sufficient funds to support faculty leadership opportunities;

Resolved, that Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) strongly encourage local senates to actively work with their local college administration, foundations, grantors and other offices to provide funds and other resources specifically for ASCCC-sponsored faculty leadership training opportunities that serve full and part-time faculty such as the Faculty Leadership Institute, ASCCC plenary sessions, the Summer Part-Time Faculty Leadership Institute, and the Curriculum Institute.
