Perkins Funds – (postponed)
The Perkins funds discussion was postponed until the next meeting so that Margaret Bdzil would be able to attend and give updates. Currently Bdzil is working on an upcoming deadline for Perkins fund allocation applications for next year 2017-2018.
Governance Annual Reflection Survey – Mallory Newell
The College Planning Committee requested each governance group answer questions as a part of the shared governance annual reflection survey. The IPBT team collaborated on answering the questions, which Newell recorded and would publish in on the annual Educational Master Plan Update.
There was a lengthy discussion regarding the membership term. Since the committee is charged to make thoughtful decisions on many complex issues i.e. faculty hiring, budget allocations, program reviews, etc. the committee recommended that the Senates consider changing governance group memberships term from 2 to 3-years. Espinosa-Pieb asked the members to notify their constituency groups about this proposal and gather feedback.
Program Review –
Espinosa-Pieb asked the members to break into teams to start working on questions for the programs/departments. The members should keep in mind what funds will be allocated in fall i.e., Workforce, Lottery, Instructional Equipment & possible Perkins funds. Espinosa-Pieb notified the team that the budget scenario isn’t getting better, but she is hopeful that at least we would be able to hire faculty replacements for the next fiscal year.
The following teams were established.
