The Curriculum and Instruction Council (CIC) fulfills the state-mandated role of certifying the academic integrity of all credit and noncredit classes, programs, certificates, and degrees. Per the joint agreement between the Academic Senate of Santiago Canyon College and the Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) Board of Trustees and in accordance with AB 1725, the RSCCD Board of Trustees will rely primarily on the advice of the Academic Senate with regard to curriculum as relates to establishing prerequisites, degree and certificate requirements, and grading policies. The CIC is also part of the college and district collegial governance framework and provides a forum for students, staff, and faculty to participate in formulating and refining curricular, instructional, and academic policy.
