ACADEMIC SENATE RESOLUTION ON FACULTY WORKLOAD
RESOLVED: That the SSU Academic Senate states its grave concern about the Sonoma State University Administration efforts to force departments to increase class enrollment without prior consultation with faculty, without providing adequate resources to accommodate additional students, and without regard to its negative impact on the learning conditions of students;
RESOLVED: That the SSU Academic Senate demands that the Sonoma State University Administration faithfully adhere to the provisions of the CSU/CFA Collective Bargaining Agreement on faculty workload;
RESOLVED: That faculty in all disciplines be assured of their right and obligations to resist pressures to increase class sizes, workloads, or other measures which in their judgment might compromise the academic integrity of their courses and programs;
RESOLVED: That the SSU Academic Senate charges it standing committees and their sub-committees to review policies relevant to faculty workload and student learning conditions to ensure that they are in keeping with the guidelines and the spirit of the CSU/CFA Collective Bargaining Agreement and the primary mission of the university of providing high-quality liberal arts education and ensuring students success.
RESOLVED: That this resolution be distributed to President Sakaki, Interim Provost Moranski, AVP Roberts, the School Deans, Department Chairs, Program Directors, RTP Chairs, CFA Sonoma State Chapter President Erma Jean Sims, ASCSU Chair Robert Keith Collins and CFA President Charles Toombs.
