Board of Trustees Meeting November 13-14

The CSU Board of Trustees meets Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, November 13 and 14. The complete meeting schedule and agendas are available on the Board of Trustees web page.

Tidbits from the agendas and schedule:

  • Tuesday 11:35 a.m. - Committee on Collective Bargaining (open session)
  • Wednesday 10:30 a.m. - full Board of Trustees meeting
  • The chair (Roberta Achtenberg) is asking the Board to form an ad-hoc committee to come up with recommendations regarding the recent audit and report back to the Board at the January 2008 meeting.
  • The current version of the proposed minutes from the September 2007 Committee on Collective Bargaining misidentify most of the CSUEU speakers from that meeting as "chapter chairs," whatever those may be. These minutes are proposed for adoption at next week's meeting, so the CSU still has time to correct the error if they care to have an accurate public record of the meeting. [See the Committee on Collective Bargaining agenda.]
  • The Board will be approving some of its 2008-2009 budget requests to the Legislature. [See the Committee on Finance agenda.]
  • The Board will look at raising the master plan enrollment ceiling from 20,000 full-time equivalent students (FTE) to 25,000 FTE for San Francisco State, and from 25,000 FTE to 35,000 FTE for San Diego State. [See the Committee on Campus Planning, Building, and Grounds agenda.]
  • The Board will consider a motion to oppose Proposition 92, an initiative on the February 2008 ballot. Proposition 92 stabilizes community college funding while leaving the CSU vulnerable as one of the few places left in the state budget where cuts could be made. [See the Committee on Governmental Relations agenda.]
