The Academic Senate employs the formal use of resolutions to identify and record the
will of its constituents. The Senate relies on formal resolutions to set direction for the college as a whole.
Members of the Academic Senate Executive Committee and its standing and ad hoc committees
implement adopted resolutions to respond to issues, to conduct its work, and to take
action. When new issues and situations emerge, the Executive Committee works with
committees to develop resolutions for consideration by the Senate.
