Annual De Anza Educational Master Plan Update

Educational Master Plan Update - Annual update of De Anza’s Educational Master Plan (website link)  includes updates of key metrics and institutional metrics. Newell reminded the members that the purpose of the College Planning Committee is to systematically review all aspects of the planning cycle under the direction of the College Council. Two items from the College Planning Committee's charge are to 1) Review and propose revisions to the mission statement and Educational Master Plan and 2) Evaluate the seven-year planning cycle within the context of the Educational Master Plan review. Each shared governance group is asked to annually reflect on their processes through three targeted questions each spring. The results of the reflections are published in the annual Educational Master Plan Update and inform the college's planning processes. Each fall the College Planning Committee reviews and assesses the Institutional Metrics within the Educational Master Plan Update and shares the update with College Council.

Newell summarized the Educational Master Plan Update with the members.  Please share the update with your constituency groups.

Annual De Anza Equity Plan Update

Equity Plan Annual Update - Annual update of De Anza’s Equity Plan required for Student Equity and Achievement Program (SEA) funding.

Newell noted that the Equity Plan annual update is due to the state due January 1, 2020.  It was noted that this would likely be an annual requirement from the state moving forward. Newell then advised the members that there is new legislation that allows colleges to create an emergency fund using SEA funds. To do so, colleges need to add the ability to establish an emergency fund for students to their existing Equity Plan. The College Planning Committee agreed to add language to Equity Plan via this year's update. Newell requested that feedback and comments be submitted to her by the end of the quarter. Please share the update with your constituency groups.
