ATTACHMENT TO AS-2547-01/EX
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University
adopt the report, The California State University at the Beginning of the 21st
Century: Meeting the Needs of the People of California; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU provide copies of this report
to members of the Board of Trustees, campus presidents and provosts, and members
of the legislature, along with campus senate chairs; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU thank the campuses for their
invaluable advice during the preparation of this report.
RATIONALE: During the 2000-2001 academic year, the Academic Affairs
committee of the Academic Senate CSU prepared the initial draft of the attached report.
Campuses were asked for their advice at several steps of the drafting process, and they
responded with many valuable suggestions. During Spring 2001, an ad hoc drafting committee
revised and refined the draft in the light of advice from campuses. The purpose of the
report is to present the concerns of the Academic Senate CSU to policy-making bodies,
the Board of Trustees and the legislature, who are responsible for policy-making and
budget-making for the CSU.
