Whereas, The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) has urged local academic senates and curriculum committees to include information about courses that have received C-ID designations in their college catalogs, either as a single list, at the end of each course’s description, or both (Resolution 13.01 F15);

Whereas, C-ID’s role as a means of identifying comparable courses has increased in importance as a consequence of the implementation of Associate Degrees for Transfer, the efforts of the California Virtual Campus – Online Education Initiative (CVC-OEI) to simplify cross-college enrollments, and the work of the ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative to identify or develop openly licensed course materials; and

Whereas, Many colleges have yet to make any visible efforts to include C-ID references in student-facing course descriptions;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges remind local academic senates of the value of referencing C-ID designations in catalogs, schedules, and transcripts; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local academic senates to work with their administrations to include C-ID designations that are included in associate degrees for transfer or in courses listed on the California Virtual Campus – Online Education Initiative into public-facing course descriptions such as course catalogs and student transcripts.
