Whereas, The Disciplines List establishes the minimum qualifications for faculty and administrators in the California Community Colleges and consists of two lists, referenced in Title 5 53407, and entitled "Disciplines Requiring the Master's Degree" and "Disciplines in Which the Master's Degree is Not Generally Expected or Available (commonly known as the non-Master's list),"
Whereas, The Standards and Practices Committee of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges has recommended reformatting the two lists into one consolidated list, which will still continue the existence of the two categories of minimum qualifications---Master's and non-Master's; and
Whereas, This reformatting proposal was presented at breakouts in the both the Spring 2007 and Fall 2007 Plenary Sessions and met with overwhelming acceptance and approval;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges propose to the Board of Governors a change in Title 5 53407, if necessary, to provide for such a single consolidated list with sub-categories; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges compile the Disciplines List in the new format as soon as practicable. MSC Disposition: Board of Governors, System Office
