IV. Student Services PBT Revision – Hand
Members of the SSPBT subgroup attended this meeting to review the proposed revisions to the SSPBT Planning Document. V. Marquez provided a historical overview and process the group used in developing the proposed revisions. The last SSPBT document was dated 1999 and the subgroup began its review in January 2010. These included the addition of commitment, core value and responsibility statements, goals and projects, explanations of decision-making model, and addition of team members. B. Murphy expressed admiration for the thoughtful document and questioned how the group arrived at the consensus model for decision-making. Discussion of the co-chair position, shared governance in board policies, principles vs. past practice, review, assessment and clarification of term limits followed. It was suggested that college council could go through a similar review process.
The approval of the SSPBT document was postponed until it has been reviewed by both the Academic and Classified Senates.
V. SLO Presentation – Handout #5
J. Haynes, C. Lee-Wheat and J. Reza provided an overview of “Outcomes Based Program Review”; a 6-year synchronization of the program review cycle. This included how course level, service level and program level SLOs interface with one another and influence resource allocation and curriculum review. They reviewed several templates illustrating program assessment SLOAC and how it can identify gap analysis in institutional core competencies.
Discussion among college council members included:
- Dream vs. Reality – Is this reasonable?
- Timeline slippage (timing of program review process)
- Using the fiscal calendar to work backwards from March 15- Overlaying the template to help map the planning process with key dates, markers or identifiers
- Distribute this proposal to the PBTs to compare and coordinate schedules and timelines.
A motion was made by B. Murphy for the Chairs of the Academic and Classified Senate, and DASB to brainstorm the timelines with regards to the OBPR proposal. Each PBT chair will review current thinking and timelines and B. Murphy will bring back an annualized plan.
