Whereas faculty are primarily interested in student success through mastery of course content, and
Whereas we must maintain prerequisites in order to satisfy certain articulation agreements, and
Whereas there are other methods available to validate prerequisites, and
Whereas it is absolutely unethical to experiment with students' education in order to validate research by allowing students to enroll in courses where there is a high expectation of failure,
Resolved that the Academic Senate adopt the document "Good Practice for the Implementation of Prerequisites" with the following amendment:
1) Strike the following language from page 7, paragraph 3, sentences 3and 4, and paragraph 4 sentence 1: "For research purposes...future of our students."
2) Strike the first clause of sentence 2, paragraph 4, page 7 and begin with "Every effort."
Final document was published and mailed.
