Whereas, SB 850 (Block, 2014) authorized the Board of Governors to establish a statewide baccalaureate degree program at not more than 15 pilot colleges;
Whereas, Upper division units offered by the pilot colleges have not yet been established as transferrable to other institutions of higher education; and
Whereas, Pilot colleges need to meet the general education needs of students utilizing a limited cohort model;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local curriculum committees to ensure that courses developed to meet upper division general education requirements for the baccalaureate pilot program are designed for the baccalaureate pilot student cohort and not for the general population of students.
Assigned to the President in January. Approval of the Baccalaureate Degree Handbook and new Title 5 section 55009 by the BOG completes this resolution.
