Support faculty training that is transferable and equitable in the community colleges

Resolution

Whereas, many contingent faculty are employed at multiple institutions of higher education and represent the majority of the faculty; and

Whereas, contingent faculty are required to hold the same academic qualifications and credentials as their full-time colleagues; and

Whereas, many qualified contingent faculty continue to be rehired each academic term over many years; and

Whereas, many institutions set their own training programs and may not recognize reciprocity;

Therefore, be it resolved, that the CFT advocate at the state Chancellor’s Office to ensure that any training required or recommended by the Chancellor’s Office be equitable and transferable between colleges and districts; and

Be it finally resolved, that CFT supports legislation that state or federal mandated training be compensated equitably and transferable between colleges and districts.
