The Curriculum and Instruction Council (CIC), a committee of the Cerro Coso Academic Senate, is the body responsible for reviewing and acting upon all proposals to establish or revise educational courses and programs. The CIC has responsibility for approval of all courses to be offered by the college, implementation of state-mandated curriculum regulations and policies, and approval of changes in degree and certificate requirements and general education requirements for the Associate in Arts degree, Associate in Science degree, the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum, and the California State University General Education Certification.
The CIC represents all Cerro Coso sites and academic staff through representation by nine faculty members from different disciplines, as prescribed by the Academic Senate constitution. One of the members is the college Articulation Officer. The Vice-President of Student Learning and the Office of Instruction Curriculum Assistant attend all meetings and act as resources for the CIC. Faculty members and/or administrators presenting proposals usually do so in person before the CIC, with meetings open to all interested members of the college community.
CurricUNET is now the curriculum management system for all colleges in the Kern Community College District. All course outlines of record and official program descriptions are to be maintained and managed within CurricUNET. It is an entirely online system, so you can work on courses and programs from any computer with access to the internet.
CIC meets twice a month (with the exception of holidays) on Fridays at 8:30 A.M. in the IWV Administrative Conference Room (MB 350ABC) and via CCCConfer. All CIC meetings are open to the public. The CIC calendar is approved at the first CIC meeting of the academic year and posted on the college website.
