Protection of Work Assignments Available for Temporary Faculty

AS-2633-03/FA - November 13-14, 2003

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) urge the campuses to make a good-faith effort to protect the work assignments and the welfare of currently-employed lecturers; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU urge the Vice Chancellor for Human Resources to participate actively in all processes that might mitigate the negative effect of the budget crisis on temporary faculty; and be it further

RESOLVED: That this resolution be sent to all campus senate chairs and vice presidents of Academic Affairs for distribution to department chairs and program directors.

RATIONALE: The ongoing unprecedented budget crisis in California threatens the availability of work for temporary faculty in the CSU and offers faculty, including department chairs and program directors, very few positive choices. The Academic Senate CSU has in the past written to campuses urging them to take action mitigating the effects of budget exigency on temporary faculty and accord to them the concern and respect that they would show to permanent faculty.
