Whereas, Academic Senate resolution 4.01 F09 called for the support of descriptor based articulation and the Course Identification Number System (C-ID) in general, including faculty participation in Faculty Discipline Review Groups (FDRGs) and review of course descriptors;
Whereas, C-ID is growing and expanding to include more disciplines and more higher education faculty, partly due to the establishment of associate degrees for transfer (AA-T and AS-T) and partly due to the benefits of intersegmental collaboration in the development of course descriptors and review of course outlines of record; and
Whereas, The growth of C-ID has led to an increased need to share information about this articulation process with curriculum committees, counselors, articulation officers, evaluators, discipline faculty, administrators, and students;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to identify liaisons to local faculty and administrators regarding information about C-ID and to solicit discipline faculty participation in the vetting of new descriptors and review of course outlines of record; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges provide resources for counselors and evaluators to help them successfully implement the use of C-ID designators locally.
