2003-04 Supplemental Report Language

AS-2628-03/FA - November 13-14, 2003


RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) reaffirm its commitment to the primacy of high quality instruction in academic programs as the fundamental mission of the CSU; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU recognize that the California Legislature has adopted, and the Chancellor's Office has already accepted, 2003-2004 Supplemental Report Language; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU encourage the CSU administration to implement these budgetary principles and reporting procedures on a systemwide level, and direct local administrators to follow these principles and procedures on individual campuses; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU transmit copies of this resolution to the Chancellor of the CSU, campus presidents, and chairs of campus academic senates.

RATIONALE: To protect, to the greatest extent possible, the CSU's primary educational mission of undergraduate and graduate instruction, the 2003-2004 Supplemental Report Language sets important principles and guidelines for the CSU administration to follow. The Chancellor's Office has already accepted these principles and has agreed to the reporting procedures set by the legislature.

Since these principles will have to be implemented by campus administrators, their commitment to these principles and the reporting process is essential in successful implementation of the document.
