Whereas, Career Development and College Preparation noncredit instruction serves as an integral part of current and future student success efforts by providing pathways to college credit programs that lead to completion of degree and certificate programs in transfer and Career and Technical Education programs for students who are unprepared or underprepared for college; and

Whereas, Student success initiatives such as the Guided Pathways Award Program and Student Equity do not explicitly identify noncredit programs as integral components of such student success efforts;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to explicitly identify noncredit programs as integral components of all current and future student success efforts, including the guided pathways frameworks colleges are working to develop and implement; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and system partners to ensure the inclusion of noncredit allocation in the initial release of statewide initiatives and to ensure the inclusion of provisions allowing colleges and districts to include noncredit programs in their planning and implementation efforts.
