Constitutional Revision

 

RESOLVED:     That the Academic Senate of the California State University transfer Article II Section 1 through 8 of the Constitution of the Academic Senate of the California State University to Article II of the Bylaws; and be it further

 

RESOLVED:     That Article II Section 1 of the Constitution now read:

                           Membership:  The membership of the Academic Senate shall be decided by the Academic Senate under provisions in the Bylaws of the Academic Senate.

 

RATIONALE:  As the number and sizes of the campuses of the California State University change over time, the Academic Senate CSU may find it necessary to reconsider membership.  Because the process to amend the Senate’s Constitution is so complex and time-consuming, this resolution transfers this authority to the Bylaws, enabling the campus senates and the Academic Senate CSU to be free to make recommendations more generally on representation.
