• September Assembly Agenda
ASEC reviewed the a revised Assembly agenda.
• Shared Governance Letter
The usual letter from the Chancellor regarding academic staff and shared governance is currently on hold. The Chancellor would like to send one letter regarding participation in shared governance campus-wide, rather than separate letters for each group. The letter would include academic staff, classified staff, and faculty as well as a link to a splash page about shared governance with specific information about each group. ASEC consented to the change.
