The role of lecturers in departmental governance shall reflect the rights of all faculty unit employees in participating in governance matters. To this end, individual lecturers shall not be excluded from participating in decisions made by departments, consistent with CSU policies, Collective Bargaining Agreements, and University policy.

As per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, only tenured and probationary faculty members may deliberate and decide on hiring, retention, tenure, and promotion decisions, including the selection of committee members who will be making such decisions.
