I. The College Council minutes of January 28, 2010 were adopted. Handout #1
J. Haynes and C. Lee-Wheat presented an SLO/Planning graphic for feedback. The overall concept is for a six year “mega review” with annual updates including yearly resource allocations. The intent is to free up the institution during the accreditation visit year to focus on standards work. Another byproduct is to simplify the process and incorporate the annual budget cycle. The “green line” proposes a “mega review” vs. program reviews every three years with curriculum being reviewed on a five year cycle to coincide with SLO work. The graphic was reviewed earlier by the IPBT and Academic Senate with no dissention or objections. Narrative is currently being developed by A. LaManque in the context of the educational master plan. The intent is to demonstrate to the accreditation commission our commitment to SLOs.
Questions & Comments:
B. Murphy inquired as to what was being requested of College Council. Jim and Coleen received the “okie dokie” to proceed.
III. Proposed Mission Statement - Handout #3
Although A. LaManque was not present, the existing and proposed Mission Statement were distributed to College Council for a first reading. B. Murphy provided updates on the Educational Master Plan Committee and the work they are doing. Mission statements vary
from college to college but ours is what the institution is about. It is the heart of what the college hopes to accomplish. Hopefully, it integrates material from the strategic planning process, existing education master plan, ICCs, equity and facilities plans. College Council members were asked to bring the proposed mission statement back to their constituency groups for review. It was suggested DASB discuss the mission statement as a formal agenda item and invite a committee member to provide information/explain the process.
