Spring

Resolution Number:

Category: 
Curriculum
Status: 
Completed

Whereas, Intersegmental faculty, working through the Academic Senates for California Community Colleges and California State University (CSU), and the C-ID System have begun to develop Transfer Model Curriculum (TMCs) for many of the most frequent transfer majors so that colleges will comply with the mandates in Senate Bill 1440 (Padilla, 2010; now California Education Code §66745-66749);

Whereas, Students benefit from the development of TMC-aligned degrees because they are able to prepare for multiple CSU campuses simultaneously, and the state benefits from TMC-aligned degrees due to a streamlined approval process and, effectively, a statewide articulated degree; and

Whereas, State-wide coordination is critical as state support for higher education decreases and competition for both community college courses and admission into the CSU increases;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to use the Transfer Model Curricula (TMCs) as they develop their local degrees; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend that all of the approved Transfer Model Curricula (TMCs) be displayed in ASSIST.

MSC Disposition: Local Senates, Chancellor’s Office, ASSIST

Status Report: 

The Senate continues to recommend to local senates to use the Transfer Model Curricula (TMCs) as they develop their local degrees as communicated through the Course Identification (C-ID) System. In addition, the C-ID leadership is currently working with the Chancellor's Office to display C-ID and TMCs in ASSIST. It is anticipated that both will be noted in ASSIST as early as Spring 2013.
