(a) "Faculty" or "faculty member" means those employees of a community college district who are employed in academic positions that are not designated as supervisory or management for the purposes of Chapter 10.7 (commencing with Section 3540) of Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code and for which minimum qualifications for service have been established by the board of governors adopted pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 70901 or subdivision (a) of Section 87356. Faculty include, but are not limited to, instructors, librarians, counselors, community college health services professionals, handicapped student programs and services professionals, extended opportunity programs and services professionals, and individuals employed to perform a service that, before July 1, 1990, required nonsupervisorial, nonmanagement community college certification qualifications.
(b) Any employees who are employed in faculty positions but who perform supervisory, management, or other duties related to college governance shall not, because of the performance of those incidental duties, be deemed supervisors or managers, as those terms are defined in Section 3540.1 of the Government Code. The incidental "supervisory" or "management" duties referred to in this subdivision include, but are not limited to, serving as a faculty member on hiring, selection, promotion, evaluation, budget development, or affirmative action committees, or making effective recommendations in connection with those activities.
