    Approval of Notes for April 20, 2021 Meeting: Notes were approved with updates.

    De Anza Student Government (DASG): Plans for Spring include a Town Hall. DASG is transitioning to Microsoft team to build institutional history last week at the Senate. Discussed a resolution to define and condemn Anti-Semitism. This resolution attracted a lot of students from and outside De Anza college. DASG would like to discuss it at the future. 

    Report out from College Council meeting of 4/22/2021: College Council approved all nine positions that IPBT recommended for hiring:

    • Asian American Studies Instructor
    • Chicanx/Latinx Studies
    • 2- Counselor English Performance Success (EPS)
    • Faculty Director Equity Office
    • Head Football Coach/Fast Coordinator
    • IMPACT/AAPI Counselor/Coordinator
    • Librarian – Multicultural Resource Specialist
    • Math Performance Success (MPS) Instructor

    IPBT acknowledged that the process was not perfect by any means. It is a work in progress. College Council’s decision to approve all nine positions was unanimous.

    Distribute and Discuss Workbook for prioritizing the remaining six positions: Heidi shared the IPBT Workbook first presented on March 23, 2021 but now updated with a tab for each of the six remaining positions to be prioritized.

    Those six positions are

    1. Environmental Science
    2. Film/TV specialization Animation
    3. Film/TV specialization Production
    4. Communications
    5. English Writing
    6. Physics

    Two of the positions will be recommended to College Council for hiring. Qualitative and quantitative data for the decision-making process can be found on IPBT Faculty Hire page of DA website.

    IPBT members were asked for suggestions on ways to provide more support for this prioritization process. Suggestions included: ·

    • Check the data in Hiring Data/Ranking for 2021-2022 for accuracy. Data concerning the two positions for Film/TV is not helpful in comparing the two positions requested from that department. Film/TV is one department and there are no separate departments for Production and Animation. Perhaps some breakdown of this data could be done.
    • With equity-mindedness being our main focus, members expressed a desire for data showing the diversity of faculty based on demographics such as ethnicity and gender for each department separately.
    • It might be helpful if the four Deans with positions on the list attend our decision-making meetings.
    • Include time for breakout rooms by constituencies for the next meeting to guarantee that all groups have a chance to discuss their viewpoints with each other.
    • Randy Bryant and Moaty Fayek offered their respective office hours for members to stop by and discuss this prioritization of position decision. (Randy: Wednesdays 1:00 – 2:00 pm; Moaty: MTWRF 9:00 – 10:00 am.)
