Response to Mission Statement of the CSU Presidents’
Group on Teacher Preparation and K-18 Education

AS-2339-96/TEKR(a) - September 5-6, 1996

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University commend the presidents for identifying teacher preparation and K-18 education as key strategic priorities of the California State University, as contained in "Mission Statement of the CSU Presidents’ Group on Teacher Preparation and K-18 Education"; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU recommend to the Chancellor that the Teacher Education and K-12 Relations Committee of the Academic Senate of the California State University be advisory to the CSU Presidents’ Group on Teacher Preparation and K-18 Education.

RATIONALE: The presidents’ mission statement draws attention to the important role the CSU has in the improvement of K-12 schools. A close tie between the presidents’ group and the Academic Senate of the California State University is important to assist in the interpretation of "the guiding principles" included in the mission statement and to participate in the essential dialogue regarding any proposed implementations of such principles. The Committee on Teacher Preparation and K-12 Relations is the appropriate group to work with the presidents’ group and its subcommittees.
