Diversity Office Proposal - (continue discussion)
Espinosa-Pieb announced that Veronica Neal is transferring to IIS division as a full-time faculty employee.
Espinosa-Pieb recapped the discussion from last week’s meeting and the three options IPBT came up.
There was a concern that it’s not rational creating a new management position under Equity if grant ends in December 2017.
Second option (submitting the original position to the next faculty hiring cycle) is not ideal because it may impact the number of positions for the Faculty Obligation Number (FON).
Espinosa-Pieb informed the IPBT committee that Lorrie Ranck and she held two meetings with Learning Resources and Academic Services divisions regarding the re-purposing existing Learning Resources dean position option. At these meetings they presented a proposed organizational chart and gathered feedback. Overall both divisions support the change with the additional meetings/discussions to fine-tune specifics.
The committee supported recommending the Academic Services/Learning Resources re-organization to College Council for review and approval.
