Resolution Thanking
and Commending Departing Senators, #RS04-232


WHEREAS the
Academic Senate of the California State University adopted a statement on
Collegiality in the California State University that included these opening
paragraphs:


The
smooth and effective operation of a complex multipurpose university system
requires a spirit of collegiality that both reflects and fosters mutual respect
among all groups within the system.
Collegiality consists of a shared decision-making process and a set of
attitudes which cause individuals to regard the members of the various
constituencies of the university as responsible for the success of the academic
enterprise.


Fundamental
to this concept is the understanding that a university is a community of
scholars who, out of mutual respect for the expertise and contributions of
their colleagues, agree that shared decision-making in areas of recognized
primary responsibility constitutes the means whereby a university best
preserves its academic integrity and most effectively attains its educational
mission.


and


WHEREAS the
success of shared decision-making in the University is dependent upon the
willingness of members of the University community to serve on the many
agencies of academic governance; and


WHEREAS the
Academic Senate is the central agency for academic governance; and


WHEREAS willingness
to serve on the Academic Senate is, therefore, of fundamental importance to the
success of the academic enterprise; now therefore be it


RESOLVED that
the Academic Senate of San Francisco State University thank and commend the
following members of the University community who are completing their current
