Role of ASGC: ◦ Defining & Understanding Role of AS (Excerpt from Title 5) ◦ Curriculum primacy ◦ Consult collegially ◦ Recommending body Role of COI: ◦ Help campus assess impact of decisions ◦ Act (administratively) on decisions ◦ Reconsider curriculum in light of budget realities
Ad Hoc Committee (AS Pres, AS VP, COI Chair, PIV Expertise ) Role: collate and organize Discussions at ASGC Joint ASGC and COI, all faculty meetings (10/16/09 & 10/23/09)
Faculty Proposals: format, due date 10/30/09 ◦ Faculty (individually or in groups) can provide additional information (including, for example, relevance to institutional priorities and accreditation, impact on students, additional sources of funding, staffing considerations) on items on the preliminary list and can also propose additions/replacements to reduction list. Proposals (in writing, to AS President and COI chair) will require the same information “fields” as the preliminary proposals provide:
Required Fields Affected program/course Statistics (FTE, FTES, LOAD; work with division dean) Anticipated Savings Estimate ($; complicated - multiple FSAs, district-wide seniority; work with division dean) Comments/rationale/options
Ad Hoc committee: collate and organize proposed submissions Results from submissions: Discussion and “AS approval” (note: this is approval list to VPI; not approval for removal/reductions of programs/courses) (November) VPI brings to Cabinet and President finalize list (based in part on financial information) (November) COI and ASGC review final recommendations in December If the faculty, represented through the committees, is in agreement with the final recommendations COI acts (banking, hiatus) President takes list to board Otherwise, President takes list to board; COI makes alternate recommendations COI - administrative action (banking/hiatus) President takes final recommendations to BOT in December BOT reviews list in December; possibly vote in January
Resolution ACTION ◦ Whereas the President of College of San Mateo has outlined a financial emergency status at the college in two all-college meetings, and Whereas the faculty, through its Academic Senate Governing Council and Committee on Instruction, serve as primary advisors to the college administration and the Board of Trustees on curriculum and academic program matters, therefore Be it resolved that the Academic Senate Governing Council and the Committee on Instruction jointly and separately authorize the President and Vice President of the Academic Senate Governing Council, the Chair of the Committee on Instruction, and James Robertson, Academic Senate Governing Council member with expertise in the Program Improvement and Viability process, and an adjunct faculty member selected by the AS President in conjunction with the adjunct faculty to serve as the ad-hoc committee on faculty recommendations to budget-induced curricular changes during the 2009/2010 academic year.
