I. Welcome: New IPBT members were introduced and welcomed.
II. Orientation: C. Espinosa-Pieb reminded members that IPBT is an open meeting that represents the entire campus. She encouraged members to share news, updates and information about the IPBT’s work and welcomed feedback. It is important to remember that each member of the IPBT represents their constituency groups; not their particular discipline or area.
III. Upcoming Tasks and Calendar:
C. Espinosa-Pieb distributed a document called “2011-2012 A & B Budget Reductions Discussion Worksheet”. She explained the numbers and discussed budget reductions. The IPBT will be using these figures as a base for the prioritization of budget reductions for the 2012-13 fiscal year.
December 1, 2011 is the deadline for a program reduction proposal.
C. Espinosa-Pieb asked new members to go on IPBT website to review the 2010-11 program review information and guidelines.
C. Espinosa-Pieb passed out the 2010-2011 “Faculty Ranking” list. She informed the group that we need to hire 13 positions (20 total) this year 2011-2012. The IPBT will use a list of proposals consisting of retirees and a list of last year proposals. The 7 positions that were frozen last year can go through the hiring process now if the Dean and department still are willing to proceed. These positions will help the District meet the “part-time to full-time ratio” or FON.
The instructional deans will send vacant faculty position justification to C. Espinosa-Pieb by Wednesday, October 12, 2011. In addition, every division can submit one growth position proposal.
On October 25, 2011 the members will vote. A prioritization list will be forwarded to the next scheduled College Council meeting.
This will allow one week for IPBT members to collect information from their constituents.
C. Lee-Wheat will distribute a table assigning various IPBT members the task of focusing on specific program review material.
IV. Good of the Order:
C. Espinosa-Pieb strongly advised using the college email system or Meeting Maker software for communication.
