WHEREAS, In Spring 1999 the Academic Senate of Humboldt State University approved revised Student Grievance Procedures which contained provisions for filing complaints against faculty, staff and administrators regarding discrimination and unprofessional conduct or issues not related to discrimination; and
WHEREAS, According to Collegiality in the California State University System, adopted by the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) in March 1985, and accepted by the Board of Trustees, the faculty have primary responsibility for curricular decisions, including “the establishment of minimum conditions for the award of certificates and degrees to students”; and
The Dean for Undergraduate Studies requested that the Educational Policies Committee evaluate the current policy (see attached) requiring all those seeking a second baccalaureate degree, whose first degree came from a non‑CSU institution, to fulfill all HSU general education requirements. Evaluators in the Office of Enrollment Management attempt to match courses applicants have taken at a previous institution to HSU general education requirements. Often, however, no match can be found, particularly in the areas of critical thinking, oral communication and human integration.
