  1. Reports


  1. Chair Report
  • Thanked Dean Clavier and Scott for CSU Scholars event.
  • Reminder to fill out ballots for Senate.



  1. President Report
  • Echoing good news about budget surplus announced in the papers.  Early indications are the CSU will get a historic distribution.  Restored budget cuts last year; however, may get an additional $400 million more recurring general funds.  Increased state support for housing, financial aid, and deferred maintenance.  Department of Finance recommended $116 million for a new residence hall which covers 65% of the costs from bonds, and the other funds come from housing fees.  Offer incoming students 2 years of housing.

    • Thanks for President for leadership and advocacy.  Calling for $500 million allocation for student housing, can the funds be used for faculty? 
  • If we get more students out of UPN, then more space for faculty.  In California, a bunch of people propose something, a bunch of committees look at it, and we vote.
  • We are associated with Silicon Valley; however, we have been shy in mentioning that we have a Science and Engineering Center.  Ambitious campaign for raising $23 million ($10 million so far and $13 million to go) supporting the new science and engineering building. 
  • Watch for opportunity to participate in the strategic planning process.  Encourage lots of participation.


  1. Provost Report
  • Share enthusiasm for COSE showcase.  Echo congratulations to Dean Clavier, AVP Scott, Dr. Hamel, and for all those who mentored students participating in the CSU Research Competition.  SFSU students took home some first and second place awards.
