Whereas there is a chasm between the world of education and the world of work, and many students are unprepared to minimally function in today's work environment, and

Whereas the traditional education model does not typically integrate academic and occupational education, and

Whereas there is inadequate career guidance or work-based learning opportunities to help student see the connection between the world of education and the world of work, and

Whereas most of the external funding sources available on our campuses today include these issues as priorities,

Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to establish a task force to develop strategies and guidelines for colleges to implement work based learning to help students see the connection between education and work, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to have a breakout at the 1999 Spring Plenary Session to present models of good practice for implementing work based programs, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to identify and present the various external funding sources already available to use for these purposes.
