RESOLUTION OF ENDORSEMENT OF AS-2049-91/GA

"SUPPORT FOR BUDGET PROPOSALS FROM THE CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY THAT ACCURATELY REFLECT THE NEEDS OF CALIFORNIA'S CITIZENS"

RF91-99

At its meeting of November 26, 1991, the Academic Senate unanimously approved the following resolution endorsing AS-2049-91/GA.

WHEREAS

The Academic Senate, CSU at its meeting of November 7-8, 1991, took an unprecedented step in passing AS-2049-91/GA; and

WHEREAS

The budget reductions of 1990-91 and 1991-92 have caused the cancellation of several hundred classes at San Francisco State University, making it extremely difficult if not impossible for students to enroll in necessary courses, and thereby creating individual hardships and delaying graduation; and

WHEREAS

These same budget reductions at SFSU have forced the layoff or reduction in time base of large numbers of faculty members; and

WHEREAS

These same budget reductions at SFSU have caused a significant reduction in educational quality for those students able to enroll in classes by increasing the student/faculty ratio and reducing educational support; and

WHEREAS

These budget reductions critically endanger SFSU's efforts to fulfill the mission delineated in the California State Master Plan for Higher Education to provide quality education for all eligible applicants; therefore, be it

RESOLVED

That the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University commend the Academic Senate, CSU for its clear delineation of the issues related to inadequate budget support, and its courage in stating its position; and be it further

RESOLVED

That the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University endorse AS-2049-91/GA, "Support for Budget Proposals from the California State University that Accurately Reflect the Needs of California's Citizens"; and be it further

RESOLVED

That copies of this resolution be sent to the Chair of the Academic Senate, CSU, chairs of the campus academic senates, the Chancellor of the CSU, all members of the Board of Trustees of the CSU, and SFSU's legislative delegation.
