ACADEMIC SENATE RESOLUTION

IN HONOR OF JUDITH ANNE OTT

#RF01-187

WHEREAS, Judith

Anne Ott has served San Francisco State University loyally and unstintingly

since 1964; and

WHEREAS, during

that time she has seen this campus grow from San Francisco State College

(15,600 students) to San Francisco State University (27,700 students),

an increase of 78 percent; and

WHEREAS, during

that time she has also seen the Bulletin grow from three slim volumes

to its current impressive and shelf-bending size, to its cyber-version,

and beyond; and

WHEREAS, she

retains in her incomparable memory everything about every major or minor

program ever offered at this University, including all prerequisites for

now-defunct programs; and

WHEREAS, she

demonstrates extraordinary efficiency in all she undertakes; and

WHEREAS, the

Curriculum Review and Approval Committee of the Academic Senate would have

long since lost its bearings without her unerring sense of direction and

purpose; and

WHEREAS, she

has decided to retire from San Francisco State University after thirty-seven

years of distinguished service; and

WHEREAS, her

retirement will leave a void on this campus which cannot easily be filled;

NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED, that Judith Anne Ott receive, on behalf of generations

of faculty, the thanks of the entire Academic Senate and of all who have

served, are serving, and will serve in the Senate and on its Curriculum

Review and Approval Committee; and

BE IT FURTHER

RESOLVED, that Judith Anne Ott be enrolled among the legendary figures

of San Francisco State University and be memorialized in its tales of remarkable

feats; and

BE IT FURTHER

RESOLVED, that the Academic Senate urge the Office of Academic Affairs

to retire her nameplate and have it enshrined in a place of honor in Academic

Affairs; and

BE IT FURTHER

RESOLVED, that Judith Anne Ott be made an honorary member of the Academic

Senate in perpetuum and be awarded the title domina curriculorum

emerita.
