A.        Purpose

The CEETL Advisory Board is a faculty group that meets once a month, when the academic year is in session, with ex-officio administrative representatives and the CEETL faculty working together to monitor ongoing campus faculty development efforts and update their links to the CEETL, and to review and suggest initiatives and projects that will support and advance the CEETL, its programs and its mission to the San Francisco State faculty community. While the Advisory Board is specifically charged with serving as a liaison to the colleges and the library, providing advice and recommendations regarding ongoing CEETL activities, and providing an annual report to the Academic Senate, representatives often assume leadership roles in their colleges and use their position on the Advisory Board to help accomplish specific pedagogical and service goals. Faculty on the Advisory Board are elected to three-year terms. Faculty interested in serving on the CEETL Advisory Board should respond to the Call for Nominations issued by the Academic Senate in the spring semester and follow the nominating procedures in order to be considered.
