Adopted: February 27, 1998

RESOLUTION TO CREATE A NON-DEGREE DOCUMENT

FOR THE CERTIFICATION OF PROFESSIONAL ACHIEVEMENT

WHEREAS, non-degree documents currently authorized by the University do not allow schools adequately to acknowledge the achievements of a growing number of students; and

WHEREAS, the Education Committee has developed a proposal to create an additional document in response to the request of the School of Engineering and Applied Science; and

WHEREAS, the Committee is satisfied that the proposal has been approved by the Registrar and the Vice-Provost;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the University Senate create a new non-degree document to be known as the Certification of Professional Achievement, a document which may be issued upon satisfactory completion of programs of instruction approved by the Senate Education Committee which programs must involve no fewer than four credit courses;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that programs meeting these conditions currently approved to issue Statements of Attendance be permitted to issue the Certification of Professional Achievement without re-submission of such programs for approval by the Senate Education Committee; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution be forwarded to the Trustees for appropriate action.
