Commending and Thanking Senators Completing Terms of Service for 2013 - 2014

Resolution Number: RS14-323
May, 2014
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 at San Francisco State University is dependent upon the willingness of members of the campus 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
