Whereas the new Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) is supposed to facilitate rather than impede transfer between community colleges and the UC and CSU systems, and
Whereas the existing articulation process between the UC and community colleges requires that all new transfer courses must first be identified as "transfer courses" by the central UC articulation office before they may be added to the IGETC, and
Whereas the articulation process within the UC system delays a course by two or more years due to the lack of staff in the central UC articulation office, and
Whereas the IGETC allows only one opportunity each year for a new course to be added to the transfer curriculum, which then delays a new course still another year, and
Whereas some community college honors programs have been designed specifically for securing avenues of transfer through priority guarantees and for easing the difficulty of student movement between the various community colleges and the UC and CSU systems, and
Whereas some honors programs require a separate curriculum to achieve ease of transfer, and also require a separate curriculum to achieve these goals,
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge the Intersegmental Committee of Academic Senates to endorse the concept that UC perform transfer and IGETC evaluation at the same time.
