    Moving Forward: The process or lack of process exhibited at the March 15 meeting was discussed.

    Salvadore Guerrero underscored the need for focusing on improving success of underrepresented groups in online classes. Thomas Ray explained that now every class, the 100% face-to-face through the 100% asynchronous online, is supported by an online component by way of a Canvas shell. The hiring committee for the Faculty Director of Equity in Online Education is currently being formed. The hiring for Instructional Designer position was a failed search.

    Desire for more structure including more formal motions and limits on number/time for speakers in meetings was expressed.

    Reminders: Instruction includes support areas within Instruction and Online Education is one of these; IPBT is responsible for making decisions around planning and budget even when those decisions are tough decisions.

    The options presented at the meeting of 3/15 were:

    1. We hire four faculty positions from the faculty prioritization list.

    2. We hire one more faculty position from the faculty prioritization list and the rest of the funding goes to hire a Classified Instructional Designer and Dean.

    3. We hire three faculty positions on the list and one Classified Instructional Designer and request that the senior staff use one-time money to hire a dean for the remainder of this year, and the 2022-2023 fiscal year, with the understanding that permanent funding would come from future retirements, resignations, or new dollars in Instruction for the 2023-2024 fiscal year and beyond.

    There was a suggestion to add the following: “We hire four faculty positions from the faculty prioritization list [and request that the senior staff use one-time money to hire a dean and an Instructional Designer for the remainder of this year, and the 2022-2023 fiscal year].”

    Conclusion was to formalize a list of options approved by majority. Then vote via ranked choice voting. That list will be presented for the next meeting. Final decision might be made at IPBT meeting of 4/19 or postponed to meeting of 4/26.
