Notes ApprovalThe notes from April 18, 2017 were approved.

As of today, De Anza’s enrollment is 5.7% down. It’s the largest decrease in 9-years. Espinosa-Pieb stressed that the college has to re-evaluate all programs and start a seriously conversation regarding enrollment. In the meantime, the college is planning to add some 6-week online sessions in late spring. Instructional deans were asked to make sure that faculty are trained in Canvas so they are prepared to teach online.

In spring quarter, IPBT will be working in groups reviewing programs.  College catalogs will be distributed as a resource - 2 catalogs per team.

Mallory Newell & James Nguyen presented The Institutional Metrics and Enrollment Analysis to give committee more information and data that need to be under consideration during the review.
