Notes of October 5, 2021 were approved.
DASG Report: Fiza presented the report that DASG’s 2022-2023 DASG Budget Guiding Principles were approved. The Senate discussed working with DA Communications Office and improving Social Media messaging.
Sport Substitution in Women’s Program: Presentation by Eric Mendoza and Dawnis Guevara. The proposal is to implement Women’s Beach Volleyball program in place of Women’s Softball. This retains the Title IX balance. De Anza College has an exemplary Women’s Indoor Volleyball program and these athletes could crossover to play Beach Volleyball. Whereas filling the women’s softball team’s roster has been a challenge. There is in place a full-time faculty member eager to assume coaching responsibilities and renting a close-by facility will be the immediate solution to a facility.
Hiring Prioritization Criteria: Christina presented to the committee a list of 26 vacant positions that includes 2021-22 retirements/resignation, 2022-23 retirements/resignations and SERP (Service Employee Retirement Plan) positions. This list will be sent to deans to confirm retirements/resignations in their divisions. Christina clarified each dean with a position on the list will decide, in consultation with faculty, which department within the division will ask for the position.
Heidi gave an overview of IPBT’s process and its purview which includes faculty position prioritization, allocation of funds (from Enhanced Lottery, Instructional Equipment, Perkin’s and Strong Workforce), Program Review and Program Viability.
Christina will share of open positions once finalized. She reminded everyone about IPBT Office Hour held every Wednesday from 3:00 to 4:00 PM to answer questions/concerns. Mary will re-send the meeting link to the members. Also, tri-chairs are available to attend affinity groups and constituency groups meetings.
Christina asked everyone to think about what criteria we should be using and what data we need to in our prioritization process. What did we learn last year? What worked and what didn’t? The topic will be brought back to next meeting.
Mary introduced Andrew Stoddard as a new faculty representative replacing Mayra Cruz.
