Lists of Disciplines To Replace Community College Credentials.
Meznek, James; Grosz, Karen Sue
In response to a legislative mandate, this report presents a set of statewide minimum qualifications to be used by California community college districts as the basis for hiring faculty. Introductory material explains that the new minimum qualifications, which replace the previously required credentials, are discipline based. In one set of disciplines, the minimum requirement is either a master's degree in the appropriate discipline, a bachelor's degree in the appropriate discipline with a master's degree in a related discipline, or the equivalent. In a second set of disciplines, the master's degree is not generally expected or available. For these predominantly vocational disciplines, faculty are required to have either a bachelor's degree in the appropriate discipline and two years of working experience, an associate degree and six years of experience, or the equivalent. The lists of disciplines are intended to be flexible and responsive to the changing curriculum and administrative needs of each district. It is assumed that local boards, administrators, and academic senates will develop their own hiring procedures and standards within the context of these minimum qualifications. The lists of disciplines are attached as adopted by the Academic Senate of the California Community Colleges. For the disciplines in which a master's degree is required, degree expectations are specified and "related" disciplines are defined. (ALB)
