Resolution to form an Ad Hoc Committee on a

MASTER CALENDAR OF UNIVERSITY EVENTS

At its meeting of May 9, 2000, the Academic Senate approved the following resolution to form an Ad Hoc Committee on a Master Calendar of University Events:

WHEREAS

The Academic Senate encourages communication of campus events, both on and off campus, between Public Affairs, the Office for Student Programs and Leadership Development (formerly Student Activities), the Associated Students, the Cesar Chavez Student Center, and other constituencies; and

WHEREAS

On numerous occasions inquiries about campus events are made from within and outside the campus community about University events, and staff from the above named offices, often not knowing about the event other than those coordinating it, must make inquiries on campus to obtain the required information; and

WHEREAS

In Summer 1995 during orientations for new students, 453 students completed a questionnaire ranking the importance of seven student life services, and the results indicated that the students surveyed considered a comprehensive calendar of campus events the most important of the services; therefore be it

RESOLVED

That by September 2000 an Ad Hoc Committee (a Task Force) will be established by the Senate to research the implementation of such a Master Calendar of University Events, and present the research to the Senate by the end of Fall 2000 for the implementation of a master university calendar which includes a daily listing of all submitted events; and be it further

RESOLVED

That the Ad Hoc committee (Task Force) will continue through Fall 2000 to research the enrichment and expansion of the Calendar services and the necessary resources to begin implementing these by Spring 2001.
