Diversity Office Proposal - (continued discussion)

The committee continued this discussion from last week. The Director of Equity wishes to move to a full-time teaching assignment (current allocation is 70% as director and 30% teaching). The proposal includes creating a full-time Director position for Equity, Social Justice, and Multicultural Education office.

The team noted the importance of making a strategic decision that benefits both the short and long-term goals of the college and strengthens student success and enrollment.

IPBT came up with 3 options:

Option 1: Create a new administrative director position using equity funding.

  • Equity money fund cannot be used to replace a position only to create a new position.
  • Facilitating Equity workshops for professional development faculty and staff – Espinosa-Pieb to follow up.

Option 2: Use existing vacant Dean, Learning Resources position and reorganize Academic Services and Learning Resources divisions.

  • Espinosa-Pieb and Ranck will meet with both divisions prior to the next IPBT meeting and report back to the committee.

Option 3: Submit the original position (faculty/director 30% teaching 70% director) to the next faculty hiring cycle. 

  • May impact the number of positions for the Faculty Obligation Number (FON).

The members held a preliminary vote and majority of the committee were inclined towards hiring a new administrative director position with Equity dollars.
