Whereas a number of faculty and CCCAOE presented information at the Certificates breakout during the 1998 Fall Plenary Session, and
Whereas conflicting issues and inadequate information prevented the delegates from defining and resolving the issues, including the term "skills awards," the reference to a regional coordination structure, inadequate distinction between credit and noncredit programs, and incomplete guidelines,
Resolved that the Academic Senate refer the "Occupational Certificate Programs" (see Appendix A) to the Executive Committee for:
1. wider input from the field, specifically from occupational educators and CIOs;
2. inclusion of additional suggestions within the body of the proposal;
3. wide distribution of the resultant proposal to all state associations affected by the proposal;
4. return of the proposal to the 1999 Spring Plenary Session.
Recommendation accepted by the Consultation Council.
