Resolution Objecting to the Extension of Pathways Common Core Course Review Committees
Whereas, the CUNY Bylaws give the University Faculty Senate and college senates jurisdiction over curriculum, and
Whereas, the central Pathways committees have wrongly usurped the role of these legitimate senates, and
Whereas, although these committees had expired, the Office of Academic Affairs is now extending the life of these committees until the end of June 2013, and
Whereas, if the pattern holds OAA is likely to make these committees permanent,
Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the University Faculty Senate objects to OAA’s further extension of these extra-governance curriculum committees and calls for a permanent end to them.
