Dear Colleagues,

I hope your fall term is off to a successful start.  As you all know, some of the most challenging work local senates encounter involves proper application of minimum qualifications and determination of equivalency.  Therefore, the ASCCC and the Standards and Practices Committee are pleased to announce that it is holding its first-ever regional meetings on minimum qualifications and equivalencies.


When: Saturday, October 29

Where: Riverside City College - RCC Cafeteria for the 150 person general session and the Hall of Fame Room and Heritage Room for breakout sessions.

Parking: They will not be citing for parking, so parking will be open for attendees.  Please park in the structure (36) or Lot E and the conference will take place in Bradshaw (13).

Map is attached below.


The meeting will include an information presentation on minimum qualifications and equivalency, conversations about local equivalency processes, and equivalency applications scenario activities. 


Local faculty leaders, including senate presidents, CTE liaisons, curriculum chairs, and equivalency chairs.  Both new and experienced faculty leaders involved in equivalency are encouraged to attend. 

 What to Bring

Attendees are asked to bring copies of their local equivalency processes with them as they are needed for the group discussions on local processes.


Free but registration is required.

I look forward to seeing you in October!
