    • Discussion over list of challengeable courses in the College Catalog

        • "Curricular process" at this time does not include curriculum committee, goes through VPI. This process may need to be clarified
        • Does this policy allow for periodic review of the list by discipline faculty? No timeline appears to be associated
        • Are lab classes allowed to be awarded credit by examination?
        • Procedure states that he discipline faculty are primary determinants of Credit by Exam..
        • Office of Instruction has oversight of maintaining a list. Does not appear to be including discipline faculty.

    • Proposed AP 4020 Program and Curriculum
    • No feedback at this time
    • Karen will be bringing both V and VI to senate this week in the second hour of the meeting. The she will put it out for action for approval so that it can be taken back to Academic and Professional Matters with comments (if needed).
    • Enrollment Advisory Team (EAT) - No update at this time
    • IPBT Updates to Guidelines Division Request (deadline October 31) - Deans were notified for instructional equipment request. Help sheets were reviewed. Deans should have shared this information with department chairs.
    • Curriculum - First round of classes for updates, including cross listed courses, which is a new process. Please notify your faculty that if there is a course that is cross listed there is an additional step.
    • Starfish - Starfish is an early notification system that allows faculty to track students in classes and refer them to assistance they may need. Foothill currently uses it, De Anza is rolling it out campuswide Fall 18 and there is a pilot running at De Anza now..
