RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU reaffirm its support for the principles cited below for those campuses experimenting with YRO:


Where academic calendars are extended to 12 months, CSU shall provide adequate resources for facilities, equipment, and instructional supplies (e.g., office space, computer support, library resources); support staff; and maintenance of facilities and equipment.


Individual campuses through their normal curricular processes shall choose which programs and courses are appropriate for year-round scheduling; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU encourage the local campus senates to participate vigorously in formation of campus-based YRO policy with respect to integrity of

  • academic programs
  • curriculum
  • major program advising
  • academic calendar
  • departmental administration, and
  • all aspects of university shared governance that may be affected by the implementation of YRO;

and be it further 

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU urge each campus to provide for Academic Senate governance activities--including financial support--during the proposed state-supported summer term to ensure that appropriate faculty consultation continues unabated throughout the newly defined academic year; and be it further

RESOLVED: That this resolution be distributed to the Chancellor, Board of Trustees, campus senates, all faculty, all academic administrators, appropriate non-academic administrators, and the boards and members of the California Faculty Association, the California State Students Association, and the California State Employees Association.
