Commendation for Betsy Eudey


WHEREAS, Dr. Betsy Eudey has served the Academic Senate of the California State University for 3 years in good stead; and

WHEREAS, Dr Eudey has served the ASCSU Faculty Affairs Committee as its Vice Chair from 2013-2015; and

WHEREAS, Dr. Eudey has served on countless committees at her home campus, CSU Stanislaus, and has been Director of the Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, deeply engaged in faculty development and shared governance concerns; and

WHEREAS, Dr. Eudey has had the rare combination of unflagging temerity and unmitigated perseverance to chair a WASC Self-Study Inquiry Circle on her home campus; and

WHEREAS, Dr. Eudey was the 2014 recipient of the CSU Stanislaus Outstanding Service in Faculty Governance Award, the text of which acknowledges her “tireless advocacy and professional integrity” in matters of shared governance dating back to her appointment in the Department of Gender Studies in 2003; and

WHEREAS, Dr. Eudey is nationally recognized as an authority within her discipline as an Executive Committee and Governing Council member of the National Women’s Studies Association; and

WHEREAS, Dr. Eudey’s enthusiasm, integrity, effectiveness, professionalism and sense of diplomacy has characterized her work on the ASCSU; and

WHEREAS, Dr. Eudey’s positive outlook, joie-de-vivre and un certain je-ne-sais-quoi will be sorely missed by her colleagues and friends on the ASCSU who have greatly appreciated the opportunity to serve with her; be it therefore

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the CSU wish Dr. Betsy Eudey well in her future endeavors at land and/or at sea, and welcome her to visit us whenever her time allows

RATIONALE: As the ASCSU Faculty Affairs Committee greatly relied upon Senator Eudey’s expertly-researched and beautifully-crafted resolution rationales, this one pales in comparison to her standards, but what it lacks in logic and reasoning, it makes up for in its brevity and reads as follows: JUST BECAUSE!
