Whereas the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges has issued the 1994 Curriculum Standards Handbook which delegates several approval authorities to local colleges and significantly revises the criteria for course and program approval, and
Whereas the California State University in Executive Order 595, removed the ability of community colleges to self-certify general education courses and has begun a systematic review of all such courses using stringent criteria, and
Whereas many local colleges have experienced difficulties with articulation of courses campus-to-campus to the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), and to the California State University (CSU) for general education requirements.
Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to prepare a position paper recommending to local academic senates and curriculum committees a model course outline of record format and content that substantively addresses the approval criteria for CSU general education courses for IGETC courses, and for the 1994 Curriculum Standards Handbook.
