A Modified Process for Approval of California State University/University of California (CSU/UC) Joint Doctoral Degree Programs
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (ASCSU) advocate for a reduced role for the CSU/UC Joint Graduate Board; specifically, that the CSU/UC Joint Graduate Board be required to meet only when there are differences in the recommendations of the CSU and the UC systems regarding a proposed doctoral program; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the ASCSU distribute this resolution to Executive Vice Chancellor Ephraim Smith, Assistant Vice Chancellor Christine Mallon, campus Graduate Deans, campus Provosts/Vice Presidents of Academic Affairs, and campus Senate Chairs.
RATIONALE: The appropriate role of the ASCSU is to make curricular recommendations. The CSU/UC Joint Graduate Board has not yet made a recommendation different from the unanimous recommendations of the individual segments. This saves redundancy of effort. It is anticipated that these changes will be acceptable to the UC.
