    Meeting Notes

    Approval of Agenda & Notes from January 22, 2018 meeting
    • Agenda approved
    • Notes approved

    Dr. Murphy Visit:

    • Regarding email today- Hate crimes and accreditation
      • Hate crimes- Some groups are recording professors, editing, and dispersing digitally, Pres. Murphy  has reached out to CUNY Psychology Professor Jessie Daniels to come speak to campus about better understanding and strategizing responses to hate crimes.
      • Reaffirmation of accreditation - we have until June 2019 to submit a follow up report to address three relatively minor points (SLO, online engagement, and matching of SLO’s from the public course outlines of record onto instructors’ greensheets). ACCJC has limited us to 18 months of accreditation (ACCJC letter), pending submission of the follow up report showing that the points have been addressed.  We will be completing the report by March 2018 for the 7 year accreditation approval. There is no scenario where we will lose our accreditation. The SLO and Accreditation committees are working on a plan to address these issues.  
      • Academic Freedom: President Murphy is going to have general counsel look into the rights of professors being recorded in class without their consent.

    Needs & Confirmations
    • Comments on BSI/SE/SSSP Integrated Planning Advisory Cmte
      • Ricardo worked under Diana at SSC, slight concern, no objections, approved.
      • Karen Chow: no objections; approved
      • Diana Alves de Lima, no objections; approved
      • Career & Technical Education Institutional Advancement Cmte- hold off until more faculty step forward who are not from the same department.
      • Math Faculty Hiring Committee- no objections; approved
      • College Life Director - no objections; approved

    Courses Into Disciplines and Faculty Service Area (FSA) Review—Overview & Request of Division Liaisons
    • FSA = Faculty Service Areas, full time faculty have seniority in their FSA
    • Faculty for each area were designated0
    • Marc Coronado- 11 courses are missing from her list, may be a misprint
    • FSA reps were given a paper packet with information explaining what they need to do.

    Proposed Amendment to Academic Senate By-Laws: Position Title of Academic Senate “Executive Secretary” to “Documentarian/Treasurer” (2nd Reading)
    • Marc C- Motioned to move , Yael seconded, approved (9 voted to approve, 5 voted against, 6 abstentions), motion passed? Jim will check. 

    1st document listed under 1/22 Agenda.  Update is this note from ASCCC president Julie Bruno:

    • “I don't see an issue for the ASCCC. This really is a matter for local control and I completely understand the necessity of having the title reflect the job responsibilities.” (Email sent 1/23/18 to Karen Chow)

     Administrative Policy 4236 Advanced Placement Credit (2nd Reading)

    2nd document listed under 1/22 Agenda.   There seemed to be no questions last time.  Remind everyone that this is a state mandate we must meet.  Renee Augenstein and Karen Chow are still checking in with dept. chairs about AP exams for which there are currently no specific course credit awarded (at a minimum, we are required to award a minimum number of general GE units in a specific GE area for all AP exam scores of 3+).

    • What if the student is majoring in the AP area and they NEED a grade? How does this impact students? Is the AP score accepted by transfer institutions? If they got credit for a course that is for an ADT course will it be honored by the transfer institution? Clarification on this please. Asking for follow-up from Renee Augenstein. Rob Clem says that institutions vary so these questions are valid. What we are dealing with here is our own internal acknowledgment of the AP exam scores of 3+ for GE credit, and major requirements for degrees and certificates.
    • The body would like some answers to this prior to vote.

    Board Policy & Administrative Policy 5700 Intercollegiate Athletics (2nd Reading)

    3rd document listed under 1/22 Agenda.

    • Mary D - Many colleges have information such as this on their websites, but this is unique because of the institutional integration through the approval process. 
    • Marc 0- is this a district policy? Yes (Karen)
    • Scott H- motion, second from Mary S, no objections, 2 abstentions. Motion passes

    Funding Request for UndocuAllies Faculty Training/Workshop (1st Discussion)
    • Valerie and Angelica have planned for 2 workshops in Winter (in March),, with up to 2 more additional workshops, depending on demand.  Classified staff and faculty attendees would earn PGA credit (VP of Instruction has approved) for attending the 2-hour workshop. 
    • Request is for approximately $1,400 request for funding
    • Suggestions from the senate include checking other off campus print services. 
    • Cheryl B - thank you for working on this.

    Valerie Greene and Angelica Moreno are coming to present a proposal.  I have emailed them guidelines for what they should present.

    Guided Pathways, Equity For Excellence, & AB 705 Workgroup Update
    • Guided Pathways documents, including our De Anza Self-Assessment have been posted here.
    • Guided Pathways Core Team will be attending statewide Guided Pathway workshop February 26 in Sacramento, and planning for getting more campuswide input on a proposed Work Plan for submission to statewide Chancellor’s Office by March 30. 
    • Equality 4 Excellence: At the Chancellor’s Equity 4 Excellence meeting on 1/25, Cheryl Balm shared her intervention to check in on all her students, especially underrepresented students in her developmental Math course (Karen’s note: DA Psychology instructors Shannon Hassett and Susan Thomas also presented on their course activities). Karen shared with the senate her ideas on possible Academic Senate funding of incentives for faculty to submit proposals for activity/activities to build community and get to know their students, Chancellor Miner has offered to match the senate $1000 for this purpose. Cheryl question: what is the timeline, how will submissions be evaluated, also why the $100 cap? Chris D - do we have restrictions on how we can use our funding? 

    Good of the Order and Appreciations

    Marc Coronado announced that she and Cheryl Balm approached Pam Grey about having a Lactation Room on campus for nursing students and staff to pump and/or feed their infants.  A designated Lactation Room will be established on campus soon.
