Whereas technology now exists to allow for the archiving of curriculum materials for all courses accepted and taught at each community college within the state, and
Whereas access to these materials would reduce duplication of effort and would save time in the preparation of curriculum, and
Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is the most logical place for the depository and dissemination of those materials,
Resolved that the Academic Senate request Chancellor's Office funding for the Senate to operate and to maintain a curriculum data base on a web site as the depository for all colleges to download curriculum information as needed, and
Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to develop policies and procedures for faculty use of the electronic community college data base of curriculum.
The current status of the System Office curriculum submission and approval process cannot provide such resources. Fall 2007 Rostrum article will provide additional details.
