CSU RESOLUTION

IN RESPONSE TO
THE GOVERNOR'S CALL TO SERVICE

COMMUNITY SERVICE AND SERVICE LEARNING IN THE CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY
March 2000

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the California State University has a tradition of such community-based activities as service learning and community service; and,

WHEREAS, Governor Davis has called on the CSU to establish a community service requirement for CSU students; and,

WHEREAS, the CSU endorses Governor Davis' interest in strengthening an ethic of service as an important part of undergraduate education; and

WHEREAS, CSU Monterey Bay already has a service-learning requirement for graduation and a number of individual academic departments and programs throughout the CSU currently require community service or service learning; and

WHEREAS, the Academic Senate CSU, the California State Student Association, and the CSU Advisory Group on Community Service have carefully studied the place of community service and service learning in the undergraduate-education experience; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, by the Trustees of the California State University, that the Chancellor require each CSU president to ensure that all students have opportunities to participate in community service, service learning (deemed academically appropriate by faculty), or both; and be it further

RESOLVED, that the Board of Trustees, through the Chancellor, endorse campus efforts to make service an expectation, condition, or requirement for the undergraduate-education experience; and be it further

RESOLVED, that the Chancellor report to the Board of Trustees, on an annual basis, CSU's increasing efforts to provide those opportunities to all students.
