                POLICY ISSUES
• Panel Discussion
   – What are the appropriate roles in the area of faculty compensation
     (state level versus local district, e.g., impact of collective
     bargaining, etc)?;
   – What relative priority should the system place on full-time and
     part-time faculty issues?;
   – Which subcomponents of the full-time and part-time faculty issues
     should receive the highest priority and attention?;
   – Should the system focus on disparity of full-time salaries among
     the various system colleges, and;
   – How should the system approach the potentially different salary
     appropriations for various members of the community and
     technical college staff growing out of the passage of Initiative 732?
