Student Development/EOPS Budget Presentation

Potential Impact:

  • No welcome week activities for new students
  • No staff to maintain operational and logistical assistance in support of student clubs.
  • No DASB and ICC outreach activities during the New Student Parent Open House, New Student Orientations, ISP Orientations and other campus events.
  • It was noted that the active student college life is what sets us apart from other colleges.
  • Reduction in student engagement, student development and retention.

       -  Question was asked if there was any data regarding engagement and retention. The data
          available is mainly focused on Instructional engagement in the classrooms.

Potential Impact:

  • Minimum 72 hours to get back to student emails and calls

          There wasn’t any data available from the last budget cuts. They currently now track every
          employee interaction using SARS.

Mieso said that everything that has been presented would be summarized with the impacts highlighted and posted on the SSPBT Budget page. Some points that we still need to consider:

  • Enrollment is still down
  • The state could be changing program funding
  • AB 705 will change basic skills and assessment
  • Discussions will take place regarding non-credit classes
  • Researching self-sustaining funding

The Student Services Budget moves forward with the SSPBT committee consensus and now will be reviewed by the Finance Office. For more information on the budget process and timeline, please check the SSPBT Budget page for more information.
