REAFFIRMATION OF AS-2062-92/AA & FA
"THE STUDENT ATHLETE IN THE CSU"
AS-2178-93/AA (REV.) - September 10, 1993
WHEREAS, The Academic Senate of the California State University unanimously passed AS-2062-92/AA & FA, "The Student Athlete in the CSU," in May 1992; and
WHEREAS, The resolution endorsed a set of "Principles and Guidelines" drawn after extensive consultation with the CSU campus senates and with campus athletics representatives; and
WHEREAS, These "Principles and Guidelines" reflect a consensus judgment of what constitutes equitable treatment of students and good practice in inter-collegiate athletics; and
WHEREAS, The CSU has routinely framed, endorsed, and required systemwide compliance with guidelines (such as the General Education curricular guidelines); and
WHEREAS, "Campus autonomy" is not compromised by endorsement of these "Principles and Guidelines;" and
WHEREAS, The "Principles and Guidelines" reflect current NCAA regulations and state and federal law; and
WHEREAS, The Chancellor has not yet provided a formal response to the recommendations contained within AS-2062-92; and
WHEREAS, The CSU has, in a recent legal settlement with National Organization of Women plaintiffs, formally agreed to move toward gender equity in intercollegiate athletics participation and funding, which is an important goal set forth in NCAA regulations; therefore be it
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU reaffirm its support for AS-2062-92/AA & FA, "The Student Athlete in the CSU," and express its strong commitment to sound, ethical, equitable and accountable intercollegiate athletic policies and procedures; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU convey to the Chancellor that in the tradition of collegiality and shared governance, and absent compelling and stated reasons, the Academic Senate CSU expect that the provisions of AS-2062-92/AA & FA will become CSU policy and practice.
