Agenda Overview and Links to Materials

All materials for the November 10th meeting can be accessed through the following link:

We have two guest reports at our next meeting. Dr. Michael Berman, VP of Communication and Technology will be presenting the Technology Strategic Plan for comment and feedback. A copy of this plan will be available on the senate materials links by Monday prior to senate if not before. Dr. Stephen Filling, Chair of the Academic Senate CSU will be on hand to discuss issues faculty may have that the statewide senate could help address.

We have two items under "Continuing Business" on our agenda that will be second reading items and up for a vote.

The first is a resolution that was brought to the floor of the senate at the beginning of our October 20th meeting. It is Resolution to End State Support of IGER. The second item is an update to the Policy on Principal Investigator. The policy is also currently under review in the President's Policy and Planning Council and will keep us in compliance with various funding agencies and sponsors.

There are two 'New Business' items on our agenda as first reading items.

The first is the Policy on Responsible Conduct of Research that is also under review in the President's Policy and Planning Council. This policy will keep us in compliance with funding agencies that require training on research ethics. The second policy is the Academic Master Plan 16-17. This is the document that is sent to the Chancellor's Office (CO) by the President each year that details our current and proposed degrees and implementation dates. Track changes is required by the CO which is why the document is presented in this format. As a reminder, this is an external document and different from the grid that has been presented to senate in years past as our "Academic Master Plan". There is a task force working on our Academic Planning Process that will eventually include internal planning documents as well.
