Comprehensive Program Review Workshop
Haynes announced the first CPR Workshop was held on March 19th. In today's workshop he stressed the importance of numerous people from the department participate in the writing of the program review. IR may have data that can be utilized. Recommends entering APRU & IR data in TracDat. Be brief and summarize everything - where the program is going. May1st draft to be sent to SSPBT for reading and additions. May 31st - edited CPR returned to be posted. Next year there is no SSLO assessment due. It will be a year of reflection and implementation. There will be a divisional perspective. Regarding data for CPR, if Newell has student's name and SID she can draw from IR data for programs. There are 18 Students Services Programs and Areas. To determine what service area/dept. needs to complete a PR, "If you did a PR in 2008-09, then you are a program area."
Student Equity Plan
A & R and Assessment have staff representative attending/participating in EAC Council. Counseling has a Core Team member. State Equity Plan is due November 2014. Many felt we need to find a way to do the equity and equity plan w/our limited staff resources. The SS CPR has numerous items focusing on equity. SSPBT's consensus was that workloads and lack of staff make it very difficult to do the "equity work." Most felt that this year we are extremely taxed w/many initiatives, including 3SP.
