|FS 07-11/CPC/Ex.||COUNCIL ON THE PREPARATION OF SCHOOL PERSONNEL, CHANGE IN COMPOSITION|
Background: The Council On The Preparation Of School Personnel (CPSP) is a permanent subcommittee of the Curriculum Policies Committee (CPC). The Council reviews all Subject Matter Programs and Professional Preparation Programs for compliance with the University's academic policies and regulations and for compliance with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) guidelines, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and other accrediting bodies for submission through appropriate review procedures of the University and for submission to the CCTC for approval by that agency.
The Faculty Senate recommends amending the composition to the Council on the Preparation of School Personnel as outlined in Attachment A.
|FS 07-12/Flr.||APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES OF MARCH 1, 2007|
|*FS 07-10/FPC/Ex.||RESEARCH AND CREATIVE ACTIVITY AWARDS, AMENDMENT OF|
Background: The Research and Creative Activities (RCA) Awards program is well established on this campus. Guidelines and procedures have been developed and improved over the years to meet changing circumstances. Currently, the issues of equity across colleges and the inadequacy of funding are major concerns. With increasing pressure for faculty to engage in scholarly activity for retention, tenure and promotion, along with increased workloads and diminishing resources, the program has become highly competitive and come under increasing scrutiny from the campus community. In particular, the distribution of colleges and departments receiving awards has been perceived by many to be inequitable. Please see Attachment B for further background information.
The primary purpose of this motion is to address the perceived inequitable distribution of awards across colleges and divisions by ensuring that any college or division with proposals of merit be guaranteed the awarding of its top two proposals. This would serve to prevent any college from being “shut out” of the award process (given the presence of fundable proposals).
The Faculty Senate recommend amending the Research and Creative Activities Awards program as follows:
Each college (and the Library) be guaranteed a minimum of two awards each year, provided that there are proposals submitted of acceptable quality, beginning with the 2007-08 awards cycle.
Carried (hand count: ayes-21; nays-14; abstentions-2).
