California Articulation Number System (CAN): Toward Increased Faculty Participation

Articulation and Transfer
Educational Policies Committee

This paper responds to plenary session resolutions directing the Academic Senate Executive Committee to prepare a background paper regarding faculty participation, evaluation and funding of the California Articulation Number (CAN) system.

The paper explores the background and purpose of CAN, examines the CAN-ing process, describes the criteria to qualify courses, discusses faculty participation and identifies systemwide issues in the evaluation and funding of the project.

Local senates should view the CAN-ing process as part of the local curriculum review / approval process and assure that there is faculty participation and oversight. This paper will assist local senates to understand the CAN process and make specific recommendations to ensure faculty and local senate involvement.
