CSULB affirms the importance of democratic and transparent decision-making processes as a shared community. The University believes that all members of the University community have not only a right, but also a responsibility, to participate in the governance of this community. Therefore, the University is committed to providing an opportunity for all its members – faculty, students, staff, and administrators – to join in the decision making process either through direct participation or representative governance.
CSULB is committed to creating a community in which a diverse population of students and employees can learn and work while they share in creating an atmosphere of tolerance, civility, and respect for the rights and sensibilities of each individual. (Policy 07-09)
