Funding of CAN (California Articulation Number) System

Resolution Number
Elmer Bugg
Assigned to
Articulation and Transfer

Whereas articulation agreements and transfer programs are essential to community college students having access to upper division coursework at the University of California and California State University, and

Whereas the community college faculty have an inherent professional responsibility in development and implementation of policies and procedures governing the system's articulation practices, and

Whereas the California Articulation Number (CAN) System had as one of its founding principles the charge to promote the transfer of community college students to four-year postsecondary institutions by simpli1~ing the identification of transferable courses, and indicating the specific disciplines and programs to which those courses are transferable, and

Whereas the CAN System is preparing to undergo an evaluation of the efficacy and efficiency of its services for the first time since its creation in 1983,

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend to the Chancellor that any further fiscal contribution by the California Community Colleges to the CAN project be predicated on the conduct of a formal evaluation which relies primarily on the input from counseling faculty and students, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend to the Board of Governors that the CAN System Coordinating Council be expanded to include broader community college faculty representation appointed solely by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges.
