    DASG Report: Report given by Anita Chamraj. DASG is considering ways of offering more support to students who have been victims of harassment. The Budget Guidelines were reviewed in DASG Senate.

    Sport Substitution in Women’s Program: Eric Mendoza reiterated that the Physical Education Division faculty voted their approval unanimously. There will be no need for Athletic Trainer to relocate or facilities professionals to set up anything since the facility will be off-campus. Eric stated that the demographics of Beach Volleyball team is likely to be the same as other sports and this is representative of the student body as a whole.

    Who is a voting members was confirmed: 3 tri-chairs, 6 administrators, 6 affinity groups, 1 classified professional, 6 faculty, and 2 students.

    IPBT members approved the substitution of Beach Volleyball for Softball (22 Yes, 0 No, 0 Abstain).

    Hiring Prioritization Criteria: The list of positions open due to retirement/resignation (8 from 2021-22, 16 from Service Employee Retirement Plan, 4 from 2021-22) has been updated and was shown. Nursing positions will be automatically replaced per decision of IPBT 2020-21. Further discussion is needed to explore ways to grow the divisions especially new divisions. Currently only positions vacated through 2020-21 retirements/resignations, 2021-22 retirements/resignations, and SERP positions are being considered. Christina reiterated the list is not the final list since each division dean in consultation with faculty in their area will decide what departments will request the allotted position(s). Timeline is to conclude prioritization before December College Council meeting. However, exact number of positions hired is to be determined pending amount of money from State and then allocation between campuses and lastly allocation between administrative services, instruction, and student services.

    The starting point for hiring prioritization will be the workbook developed 2020-21 and the associated qualitative criteria. There will be discussion around any specific wording/rewording next meeting.
