The Curriculum & Instruction Council (CIC) meets on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Mondays of the month at 1:30 PM in B-208 during the fall and spring semesters.
The Curriculum and Instruction Council fulfills the state-mandated role of certifying the academic integrity of all credit and noncredit classes and programs. It is founded on a joint agreement between the Academic Senate and the Board of Trustees to rely primarily on the advice of the Academic Senate with regard to curriculum; for example, establishing prerequisites, degree and certificate requirements, and grading policies. The Council is also part of the college and district collegial governance framework and provides a forum for students, staff, and faculty to participate in formulating curricular, instructional, and academic policy.
