DEVELOPMENT OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR
CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY
FACULTY TO WORK IN THE STATE
LEGISLATURE AND OTHER STATE AGENCIES

AS-2179-93/FA - September 10, 1993

WHEREAS, The occasional temporary assignment of university faculty to government agency work can bring fresh expertise to the host government agencies, and can provide experience that may be professionally renewing to faculty, ultimately benefiting universities and their students; and

WHEREAS, The federal government has for over two decades provided the opportunity for university faculty to work in federal agencies in all three branches of government under the Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA); and

WHEREAS, Federal agencies have obtained many highly skilled, expert, motivated and experienced staff members for a period of up to two years under this program; and

WHEREAS, This program has assisted in the transfer of new technologies and approaches to solving governmental problems, thereby allowing federal agencies to strengthen their management capabilities; and

WHEREAS, Acquiring the expertise of university faculty may be especially useful to the state legislature and state agencies experiencing budget and personnel cuts; and

WHEREAS, In an era of austere budgets in which opportunities for faculty renewal are sadly few, faculty at the California State University would welcome the opportunity for professional renewal through temporary reassignment to state government agencies, to the ultimate benefit of CSU students; therefore be it

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University encourage the chancellor, in conjunction with the Academic Senate and appropriate officials, to develop opportunities for the CSU faculty to work in the state legislature and other state agencies.
