Noncredit, Pre-Transfer, & Continuing Education Committee

Formerly two separate committees: Noncredit Committee and Basic Skills Committee.

The Academic Senate Committee on Noncredit, Pre-Transfer, & Continuing Education gathers information on best practices in providing equitable and accessible instruction and support services to students who are engaged in extended learning, which includes transitioning to post-secondary education, including support for pre-transfer pathways, workforce success, and/or other skill building opportunities. The Committee conveys this information to the field through breakout sessions at institutes and conferences, workshops, and papers. The Committee will: 1) serve as a resource to the Executive Committee on issues related to instruction, counseling, student services, and program development in noncredit education, pre-transfer pathways, and continuing education, including how they are embedded in institutional initiatives to ensure student success and learning, as well as the role of faculty engaged in this work, as related to governance and local participation in academic and professional activities; and 2) review policies and make recommendations to the Executive Committee. The Association of Community and Continuing Education (ACCE) appoints a member to serve as a liaison to this committee.

The Association of Community and Continuing Education is to serve as a liaison to this committee.
