Proposed Revision of Title 5 Regulations on Undergraduate Degrees
AS-2485-00/AA - January 20-21, 2000
ATTACHMENT TO AS-2485-00/AA
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University recommend that the CSU Trustees action on the Proposed Revision of Title 5 Regulations on Undergraduate Degrees be deferred until after the May plenary of the Academic Senate CSU to allow time for consultation with the Academic Senate CSU and the local senates regarding the specific recommended changes in the CSU degree and major requirements.
RATIONALE: According to "Collegiality in the California State University System," adopted by the Academic Senate of the California State University in March 1985, the faculty have primary responsibility for certain curricular decisions, including "the establishment of minimum conditions for the award of certificates and degrees to students." The responsibility of the faculty includes not only the appropriate curriculum requirements, but also the minimum number of units for the awarding of degrees. Response of the Academic Senate to a proposal to reduce the current unit minimum for the baccalaureate degree must be obtained before moving forward with such a change.
