Title 5 Language to Accommodate the Independent Doctorate of Education Within the CSU

AS-2746-06/AA/TEKR - March 9-10, 2006


RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) endorse and recommend the attached Title 5 language for submission to the CSU Board of Trustees.

RATIONALE: The appended language is congruent with the legislative intent and requirements of SB-724 (2005). Given faculty control of the curriculum it is imperative that the policies governing the curriculum of the Ed.D. be approved by the Academic Senate CSU prior to such changes to Title 5. This resolution documents such approval.

The development of the language represents an example of productive collaborative processes between the Chancellor's Office and the Academic Senate CSU. Of particular note is that the timeframe for feedback and revision was sufficient to both finesse the details as well as to ensure that the faculty on the local campuses as well as at the statewide level could consider the content.

The version sent out to campuses (April 2006) is a preliminary version of the proposed Title 5 language subject to modification prior to Senate action (May 2006) and the Board of Trustee's action (July 2006).

Approved Unanimously - May 4-5, 2006
