Whereas, Faculty Discipline Review Groups (FDRGs) are essential to the success of the Course Identification Number System (C-ID), which depends on faculty to create course descriptors, participate in providing feedback on the descriptors, submit courses to receive a C-ID designation, and review course outlines of record (COR) for the awarding of C-ID designations;
Whereas, The associate degrees for transfer (AA-T and AS-T) have incorporated the use of C-ID designators, which requires FDRGs to have an ongoing role in the creation, review, and approval of C-ID designators, and more and more faculty are finding C-ID to be beneficial for the articulation of courses to colleges and universities and for students in choosing appropriate courses for transfer;
Whereas, C-ID will become a standard fixture in ASSIST, the online articulation database used by counselors, articulation officers, and students to learn of course options for majors in California universities and community colleges, making the work of the FDRGs more permanent than temporary; and
Whereas, FDRGs make significant contributions to the effectiveness and viability of community college curriculum;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges endorse Faculty Discipline Review Groups (FDRGs) as being essential to the success of the C-ID articulation process for community college courses; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges establish the FDRGs structure and function as the means to accomplish the work of intersegmental curriculum development and review.
