Faculty Hiring:

Espinosa-Pieb distributed three handouts: Faculty Ranking for 2014-2015 approved last February, Faculty Hiring Data Sheet and preliminary Faculty Ranking Timeline for Faculty Hires in 2015-2016. The top 7 faculty highlighted in yellow were approved and hired last year. 

Espinosa-Pieb noted we only have 4 positions to hire this year. However, due to retirements and resignations, this list is subject to change. It’s important to have this information in January as it results in waiting a full year if retirement notices are received in June. Please note the three mathematics positions are to be removed as the district will fund two of them due to the historical wait lists for the last 5 years.

Ranking: It is completely up to the Divisions to decide on their positions. Flexibility is based on student demand, student population and enrollment.

Please include in your rankings:

  • Data, new positions to be added
  • Written justifications
  • All data is anonymous


  • Important to note how many years has a position been on the list
  • Affects department morale
  • Students will receive 2 votes and should be cognizant of student demands and wait-listed classes. They should also confer with the DASB VP of Finance
  • Faculty will meet as a group
  • Information will be sent to Classified senate for an opportunity to review by 2:00 pm on Thursday.
