URBAN MISSION TASK FORCE REPORT

Academic Senate Policy Recommendation 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 also 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 & Approval Committee, and the Chair of the Professional Research & Development Committee be formed to develop policy recommendations for Academic Senate consideration prior to the end of the Fall semester, 1981.
