Whereas demographics indicate that California will experience a continuing influx of immigrants and refugees who will require instruction in English language skills in order to become effective contributing members of society, and

Whereas many of these non-native speakers will enroll in community college credit programs, and

Whereas the acquisition of a foreign language is an appropriate and established academic discipline.


Resolved that the Academic Senate reaffirm that courses/programs in English for non-native speakers be offered with appropriate credit, and

Resolved that transferability of appropriate courses/programs be established by means of the standard articulation procedures between the community colleges and the four-year institutions.
