AS-3017-11/EX (Rev)

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (ASCSU) request that the
CSU Board of Trustees recommend to the Governor the addition of a second faculty trustee to the Board with a term of appointment staggered with that of the current faculty trustee; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the ASCSU distribute this resolution to the Chancellor and the CSU Board of

RATIONALE: The addition of a second faculty trustee with a staggered term would eliminate situations where a vacancy due to a delay in the appointment of a single faculty trustee, or for any other reason, would mean the Board would not benefit from
the wisdom and perspectives of a current faculty member. It would also provide for a
second faculty perspective on the numerous and diverse issues in a system with over
22,000 faculty and 410,000 students. It would also allow for the mentoring of newly
appointed faculty trustees by a sitting faculty trustee
