Whereas a list of minimum qualifications has been established for disciplines requiring a master's degree, and
Whereas these minimum qualifications must be included on announcements of faculty positions, and
Whereas State law specifies minimum qualifications for community college faculty (AB 1725 Article 2, Minimum Qualifications and Hiring Criteria);
Resolved that the Academic Senate recommend to local senates that local academic senate presidents verify the minimum qualifications on all proposed faculty positions prior to publication, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate demand that the Board of Governors, the Chancellor's Office, and all local boards of trustees abide by state law regarding minimum qualifications.
In a May 2007 meeting at the System Office with Specialist Ken Nather, it was determined that local senate should conduct such audits. It is appropriate for S&P to honor this resolution.
