Welcome

Welcome to the official online home of the English Council of the California State University.

Join us for the Fall 2014 meeting October 9 and 10 at the Bahia in San Diego.

Hello Everyone,

We are happy to announce that we will be meeting again at the lovely Bahia Resort in Mission Bay. Our meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 9.  Reduced conference rates are available to those who make reservations at the Bahia no later than September 7.   To make a reservation, simply visit this link: https://shop.evanshotels.com/bahia_groups/2354.html or phone 800-288-0770.

Bring a Friend!  Please encourage new colleagues (and those who haven’t been to EC in a while) to join us for conversations about matters impacting our work in the California State University system.  To help expand our active membership, first-time English Council attendees will be charged half price registration.

The official agenda will be posted soon with full descriptions of our two morning panels and afternoon breakout sessions.  Our first panel will focus on efforts to streamline GE and how English may be impacted, including a discussion of “themed” GE tracks and a report from a quarter-based campus in the midst of converting to semesters.  In our second panel, representatives from UC, CSU, and CCC will discuss how their various institutions may be affected by the MLA’s  Report of the Task Force on Doctoral Study in Modern Language and Literature.  In addition to graduate  advising for prospective PhD candidates, this panel will consider how all of us may be impacted by changes to graduate study as it affects the training and preparation of our future colleagues.

Finally, please remember that the October meeting in San Diego is the only council-wide meeting scheduled for this year. At the business meeting Friday, we will discuss which campuses, if any, are interested in hosting a smaller regional meeting for Spring 2015.

Hope to see you in San Diego! And please reserve your room soon!
