URBAN MISSION TASK FORCE REPORT

ACADEMIC SENATE POLICY F81-80

At its meeting of October 6, 1981, the Academic Senate approved the following

proposal recommended by its Executive Committee:

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1. We strongly recommend that this report be considered in conjunction with

the recommendations in the forthcoming UPG report. Further, we urge that

the focus of future efforts be the pulling together, coordinating, including

additional options as appropriate, and providing the overview necessary for

establishing priorities and distributing limited resources.

2. We also recommend that an all-university Urban Planning and Policy Council

be formed and given policy-recommending responsibilities for all aspects

of the Urban Mission. This Council should solicit advice, recommendations, and

criticisms from all members of the University community who want to become actively

involved in the Urban Mission, and should work toward creating a network for

consultation and planning with Bay Area community organizations and people who

are willing to participate as partners in the Urban Mission. We suggest an interim

Action Team of the Director of the Urban Mission, the Associate Provost for

Academic Affairs, the Chair of the Academic Policies Committee, the Chair of

the Curriculum Review and Approval Committee, and the Chair of the Research

and Professional Development Committee be formed to develop policy recommendations

for Academic Senate consideration prior to the end of the Fall semester, 1981.

**APPROVED BY PRESIDENT ROMBERG, OCTOBER 21, 1981**
