To minimize the risk that it appoints faculty who are not qualified to teach self-supported for-credit programs, CSU Long Beach should immediately establish and implement procedures comparable to those it uses for recruiting and appointing faculty to teach state-supported courses and programs.
Based on the recommendations by CSA on the hiring of lecturers in CCPE, Faculty Affairs has outlined various steps and informed the Associate Deans in the Colleges that effective Fall 2014, the existing stateside procedures will be implemented for the recruitment and appointment of lecturers to teach in CCPE programs.

Corrective action is still in progress.
Faculty Affairs will work closely with CCPE to identify and implement a process for hiring lecturers to teach in CCPE programs that will mirror the stateside process. For incumbent faculty, the process includes an updated CV and SC-1 form that is provided by the College and submitted to CCPE prior to providing a contract. When there is no incumbent and a recruitment is required, the College is responsible for that lecturer recruitment, including advertising the position and following the state-side recruitment process for lecturers. This process includes having the College collect all of the required hiring documents from the candidate. The College then approves the candidate and informs CCPE and delivers the requisite documents to CCPE. These documents must be attached to the CCPE contract and retained. The College also retains a copy of these documents as they may be needed at a later date for a state-side hire for that same lecturer. Faculty Affairs will work closely with CCPE on outlining this entire process prior to Fall 2014 hiring.
