The California Maritime Academy and the California State University. A Report to the Legislature and the Department of Finance in Response to Supplemental Report Language of the 1990 Budget Act.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report presents results of a study of the administrative and governance structure of the California Maritime Academy and the Academy's relation to the California State University as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the State University's Trustees assuming more responsibility for the governance of the Academy. These responsibilities include incorporating the Academy into the State University as the State University's 21st campus or as a satellite to an existing campus. The report provides background information on the Academy, its current governance, and its distinctive educational mission. It then reviews the Academy's relations with the State University. Following an analysis of the pros and cons to merging the Academy with the State University, the report presents its recommendation that the Academy continue to be governed by a separate independent Board of Governors, but that the Board take action to strengthen its leadership role in establishing policy for the Academy. In addition, the Commission recommends that the Board seek to involve itself in planning and goal setting for the Academy, to insure serving the needs of all Californians seeking a maritime career, and the Commission offers a number of specific suggestions to achieve that goal.
