RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU urge the CSU Board of Trustees to adopt those proposed amendments to Title 5 provisions concerning admission to teacher preparation programs.
RATIONALE: The proposed changes to Title 5 reflect recommendations made by the CSU Presidents Group on Teacher Preparation and K-18 Education. This comprehensive review of Teacher Preparation in the CSU has generated many significant and valuable ideas regarding how the CSU can better prepare teachers. Among those ideas are the recommendations contained in the attached proposal. Senior Vice Chancellor Charles Lindahl has asked the Senates advice regarding these proposed changes. A draft of this proposal has been reviewed by the Teacher Education and K-12 Relations Committee and has been found to be most worthy of our support.
