AS-3027-11/FGA/AA

ATTACHMENT 1 TO AS-3027-11/FGA/AA
ATTACHMENT 2 TO AS-3027-11/FGA/AA

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (ASCSU) support the California State University’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) recommended tuition fee in order to implement the provisions of AB 867 (Nava); and be it further

RESOLVED: That the ASCSU support the California State University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) recommended tuition fee in order to implement the provisions of AB 2382 (Blumenfield); and be it further

RESOLVED: That the ASCSU recognize that the tuition fees recommended for the CSU’s DNP and DPT programs achieve the twin objectives of generating sufficient revenue to sustain fiscally sound doctoral programs and ensuring that the quality of support provided to undergraduate programs is not diminished; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the ASCSU distribute this resolution to the CSU Board of Trustees, the CSU Chancellor, Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer, campus Presidents, campus Provosts/Vice Presidents Academic Affairs, and campus Senate Chairs.

RATIONALE: As the fiscal environment in the CSU has deteriorated, some CSU campuses have looked to special sessions as a means of providing ongoing service to students. In some cases, these initiatives have violated the provisions contained in EO 1047 and the Education Code. It is vitally important for student access and their overall educational experience that the CSU honor its primary mission as a state-supported institution. As programs and courses are proposed for inclusion in special sessions, faculty must assume responsibility for insuring that they fall within the provisions outlined above. In cases here programs and courses already have been moved to special sessions in violation of EO 1047 and the Education Code, such programs and courses should be returned to state-support as expeditiously as possible.

Approved – May 5-6, 2011
