Title 5 Language to Accommodate the Independent Doctorate of
Education Within the CSU
AS-2746-06/AA/TEKR - March 9-10, 2006
ATTACHMENT TO AS-2746-06/AA/TEKR
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State
University (CSU) endorse and recommend the attached Title 5 language for submission
to the CSU Board of Trustees.
RATIONALE: The appended language is congruent with
the legislative intent and requirements of SB-724 (2005). Given faculty control of the
curriculum it is imperative that the policies governing the curriculum of the Ed.D. be
approved by the Academic Senate CSU prior to such changes to Title 5. This resolution
documents such approval.
The development of the language represents an example of productive collaborative
processes between the Chancellor's Office and the Academic Senate CSU. Of particular
note is that the timeframe for feedback and revision was sufficient to both finesse the
details as well as to ensure that the faculty on the local campuses as well as at the
statewide level could consider the content.
The version sent out to campuses (April 2006) is a preliminary version of the proposed
Title 5 language subject to modification prior to Senate action (May 2006) and the Board
of Trustee's action (July 2006).
Approved Unanimously - May 4-5, 2006
