The notes were approved.
2) AccreditationJeanpierre advised the team that she would meet with her Standard III accreditation co-chairs later in the week and would work to set up a process which would include Campus Budget. She would like to use the expertise of all the governance group team members to assist with the accreditation process. Specifically, Jeanpierre would like Campus Budget to be a part of the human resources & fiscal resources sections under Standard III.
Marketing will be distributing templates to assist with organizing the documentation.
The team reviewed the "general timeline for completing De Anza's self study" which is posted on the accreditation web site. Jenkins gave an overview of progress so far and planning for meeting future deadlines.
New faculty are a valuable resources and should be encouraged to participate.
Jeanpierre will keep the accreditation item on the Campus Budget agenda.
3) Setting Future Agendas
The district would like the colleges to consider a collaborative grants office which would seek out grants and support the current grant writers across the district.
Jeanpierre asked the team for their input and suggestions for submission to the conversation and posed the question - to what extent would De Anza College want to participate? Jeanpierre is meeting with Brett Watson, Shirley Barker & Richard Galope in early May to discuss development of a new grants office oversight committee.
In conclusion, the team requested that three of our current successful grant writers come to the next Campus Budget Meeting to give the team their insight.
NSF - Jane Ostrander
PSME - Jerry Rosenberg
Impact/API - Mae Lee
