CSU faculty are significantly affected by the leadership of the CSU system; and

WHEREAS

The only faculty member included in the present Chancellor search process is the faculty representative on the Board of Trustees; and

WHEREAS

That sole faculty representative on the Board of Trustees, despite his superior contributions in that role, cannot represent the full range of faculty perspectives and insights needed in the search process; therefore be it

RESOLVED

That the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University affirms its unwavering support of broad-based faculty inclusion in the Search Committee for Chancellor; and be it further

RESOLVED

That the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University strongly urges the CSU Board of Trustees to reconstitute the Search Committee for Chancellor to include at least two additional faculty members to be chosen by the CSU Statewide Academic Senate.
