1 SB 1440: Where are we now and what’s next? Presenters:
Lisa Lawrenson, American River College Ken Nather, CCC Chancellor’s Office Michelle Pilati, Academic Senate Jeff Spano, CCC Chancellor’s Office April 19, 2012

2 Agenda Brief Background and Overview
Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) – Rationale, current status, and plans for the future TMC and CSU AA-T and AS-T Update Developing Associate Degrees for Transfer Informing our students Associate Degrees for Transfer – a local perspective

3 1440 Oct 2010 4/12/2017 SB 1440 (Padilla) Ed. Code § Signed Sept 2010 and now effective for the academic year To earn an “associate degree for transfer” a student must complete 60 transferable semester units that include: IGETC or CSU General Education requirements 18 or more units in a major or area of emphasis, as defined by the CCC No additional local graduation requirements Minimum GPA of 2.0

4 1440 Oct 2010 4/12/2017 Benefits for Students Guaranteed admission with junior status somewhere in the CSU system CSU must accept all 60 units that make up the degree CSU must enable the student to complete the baccalaureate degree within 60 units CSU cannot require the student to repeat courses that are similar to those already taken at the community college These benefits are all provided in the statute.

5 Implementation and Oversight Committee
1440 Oct 2010 4/12/2017 Implementation and Oversight Committee Co-Chairs: Erik Skinner Executive Vice Chancellor for Programs, CCC Ephraim Smith Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer, CSU CCC Members: CSU Members: Eloy Oakley Superintendent/President Milton Gordon Pamela Deegan Chief Instructional Officer Donald Para Carsbia Anderson Chief Student Services Officer Douglas Freer Sue Granger-Dickson Transfer Center/Admissions Dir. Sandra Cook Michelle Pilati Academic Senate James Postma Beth Smith Academic Senate Andrea Renwanz-Boyle Jeffrey Feng Student Senate Gregory Washington Linda Michalowski Chancellor’s Office Eric Forbes Venue for continued discussion and resolution is the IOC Established at direction of Chancellors Scott & Reed, first meeting was November 2010 Continues to meet frequently This group will not work on curriculum aspects; all curriculum discussions occur in the ASCCC + CSU senate reps

6 1440 Oct 2010 4/12/2017 Progress to Date “Priority admission” defined for students enrolling at their local CSU or in a CSU major deemed “similar” Process implemented to identify students intending to transfer with a degree in Fall 2012 Joint Web site created for staff and faculty: Requirement that degrees be available to students beginning in the Fall 2011 term met Paul will elaborate more on the Marketing efforts in a few minutes.

7 Curricular Side of SB 1440 Work began between CSU and CCC Academic Senate prior to the bill’s signing Curricular elements dealt with at the 1440 Intersegmental Curriculum Workgroup (ICW) Representatives from CSU and CCC Academic Senates and COs, 1 CCC CIO

8 TMC – A Statewide Solution
While the legislation does not call for a statewide approach, the faculty from the two segments believed this would make more sense. Ultimate goal? One degree per major that prepares students for ANY CSU with that major.

9 What’s a TMC (Transfer Model Curriculum)?
Developed & vetted intersegmentally (CCC and CSU) Built on the C-ID system Represents faculty consensus Serves as a blueprint to guide local associate degree for transfer (AA-T or AS-T) development Provides for some uniformity as well as local options “Core” requirements Others are options for your local degree Faculty can narrow the course options or pass choices on to students. Some TMCs are narrow and more prescriptive; others are more open. It depends on the discipline. What if you don’t presently offer a required core course? It must be developed

10 Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) Completed
TMC Progress Major Step 1: Discipline Group Step 2: Statewide Review Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) Completed Sociology Psychology Communication Studies Mathematics Administration of Justice Early Childhood Education Geology History Physics Theater Art History Business English Kinesiology/PE Political Science Studio Art Music Elementary Teacher Education Biology Chemistry Computers/Information Systems Journalism Acknowledge the TMCs are the work of the Academic Senate 22 identified majors are listed. At least 25 TMCs will be complete by Fall Process developed to identify CSU programs similar to TMCs

11 Transfer Model Curriculum
How Do Degrees Get Developed? AA-T or AS-T Developed by Colleges, Approved by CCC Chancellor’s Office Transfer Model Curriculum C-ID Supported the Leadership of the Academic Senate to: Provide a statewide solution using Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) Leverage C-ID numbering to simplify identification of comparable courses Standardize degree naming Identify twenty-five popular majors

12 Local Roles in Degree Development Process
Discipline Faculty: Develop an AA-T or AS-T in a major aligned with TMC; select the best options from TMC. Curriculum Committee: Facilitates the local approval process through Board of Trustees. Articulation Officer: Submits courses for C-ID approval and assists departments with articulation questions and ASSIST documentation. Counselors: Provide input on major and GE unit requirements and facilitate communication of new degree requirements and benefits to students. Administrators: Ensure compliance with SB 1440 and Program and Course Approval Handbook (PCAH); oversee process of submitting proposal to CCC Chancellor’s Office

13 Top Ten Frequently Requested Revisions
10. Course Outline of Record not uploaded. 9. For CTE proposals – Labor Market Information not provided. 8. For new degree programs – general statement on fees, admissions criteria, accreditation standards missing. 7. For new degree programs – general statement about available resources missing.

14 Top Ten Frequently Requested Revisions
6. Missing explanation of place new program will have in curriculum. 5. Missing explanation of how the degree will benefit the students. 4. No summary table of major, GE, and elective units in Program Requirements. 3. Critical elements of CEC missing from Catalog Description. 2. Description of program area goals and objectives missing and degree title incorrect.

15 Number 1 Revision Request
Missing or incorrect articulation and transfer documentation.

16 New Program Proposal Resources
C-ID draft and final course descriptors List of draft and final TMCs Curriculum Information Instructions for Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T and AS-T) Associate Degree for Transfer Templates (Word format) Examples of approved AA-T and AS-T degrees with documentation Model CCC Catalog Language for AA-T/AS-T Degrees and C-ID Counseling Information AA-T and AS-T Degrees Available CSU Determination of “Similar” Majors by Campus Admission Information Counselor Factors to Consider Curriculum Inventory CCC-501 – New Credit Program CCC Substantial Changes to an Approved Credit Program

17 ACCJC Substantive Change
If the AA-T/AS-T degrees are significantly developed from curriculum already being offered by college full substantive change review not required College needs to address 4.2, Step I on page 13 of ACCJC June 2011 Substantive Change Manual In response to 4.2, Step I, provide: Description of change Need for change Anticipated effects ACCJC will respond with a formal letter and copy U.S. Dept. of Education acknowledging transfer degree

18 CSU Goals for AA-T/AS-T Acceptance
All CSU campuses will have at least one degree designated as “similar” in each TMC major offered by the end of the Spring 2012 term

19 TMC – Example of CSU Similar Progress
# CSUs with at least one path deemed similar Sociology 22/22 Psychology 19/22 Communication Studies 19/21 Mathematics 17/22 Administration of Justice 13/15 Early Childhood Education 13/18 Geology 12/18 History 21/22 Physics 18/19 Business 16/21 Note – a similar path may not necessarily be the most popular transfer path. The numbers should continue to increase as CSU faculty have more time for additional review and solutioning.

20 Communications URL
California Community Colleges and CSU developing content and back pages - CCCO Communications has worked very closely with CSU to develop the SB 1440 page - We’ve purchased URLS will continue to be a work in progress as new majors are approved.

21 Communications Social media will be an important component of the Associate Degree for Transfer program. Other social media platforms will cross-promote the Associate Degree for Transfer website, Facebook and Twitter pages. Our other social media platforms will herald the official launch of the ADT website and cross-promote the ADT social media sites.
