8 Meeting Agendas Meeting Minutes Meeting Highlights  ASCSU Extended Executive Committee met for a one-day retreat on 1/6/12 in Sacramento to discuss the work of the Senate for Spring 2012. While issues of budget and the working relationship with the Administration dominated most of the discussion, the major topic of the retreat was to ensure that the Senate continued its essential role in the shared governance of the CSU and not overwhelm its agendas with other matters.  As a result of Senate budget decisions to accommodate our 2011-2012 allocation, a reduced 0.10 (from 0.20) assigned-time was offered to all 2 nd year senators for Spring 2012. With these reductions in budget dedicated to assigned-time, the Senate should be able to fund its “normal” operations for the spring. “Normal” is now defined as in-person plenary meetings, virtual interim meetings, tight limits on travel, and the other constraints that have been in place the past year.  ASCSU Chair Postma, Faculty Trustee Cheyne, and former Chair and Trustee Goldwhite met with Chancellor Reed, EVC/CAO Smith and AVC Vogel on 1/18/12 to discuss the Senate’s need for some long-term stability in its budget. Results of this discussion has yielded us a base budget for 2012-13 to include assigned time for two Senators per campus, no assigned time for 1 st year senators, assigned time for the Senate leadership (Executive Committee and Committee Chairs), ASCSU chair is a FT, year-round position, Senate office staff will be reduced by half a position, support for travel and other expenses will continue at the current rate, and total base budget proposed is about $50,000 more than the Senate’s current year allocation. Executive Committee

9 Meeting Highlights (continued)  ASCSU Constitution (Article II, Section 1-a) states that the elected members of the Academic Senate shall consist of two senators per campus plus an additional senator from each of the seven largest campuses apportioned on the basis of FTEF. At this time, there are no plans to amend the ASCSU Constitution. It is important to note that SF State is one of the seven largest campuses and entitled to an additional (albeit unfunded) third senator. Resolution  Acceptance of Online Education White Paper/EX (First Reading) acknowledges receipt and/or endorsement of the Online Education White Paper including recommendations regarding online education policies, faculty consideration of online policy components, and best practices for faculty teaching online courses.
