    DASG Report: Anita reported that the student election complaint appeals were discussed. DASG is considering By-law changes, evaluating their adoption of online office hours, and discussing of a Canvas shell for communication. Finance Committee code changes were approved. Tim Shively, representing Faculty Association, spoke to DASG on the meaning of “Work to Contract” that bargaining units including FA have adopted to create an impetus for Board of Trustees to adopt a Cost-of-Living wage increase across FHDA District. DASG endorsed Work-to-Contract.

    Equity Plan Re-Imagined: Alicia Cortez presented the Equity Plan Re-Imagined . This is the equity plan presented Spring 2021 incorporating the input received since Spring 2021. It is less prescriptive than the original plan but does offer guidance in the development of best practices for programs, department, and units to

    • Develop one or two high impact equity practices,
    • Explore ways to integrate instruction and support services more effectively to achieve equitable outcomes, and
    • Increase non-traditional models of learning and credit earning.

    Confirm three faculty positions to be hired:

    Administration of Justice and Child Development Education have same score on the ranking list and are thus tied. Elvin Ramos indicated that the Division had already begun a conversation concerning this and indicated that considering all points Administration of Justice would probably receive a new hire over Child Development Education. The majority of IPBT members voted to leave this decision to the Dean of Social Sciences and Humanities. The decision was then focused on whether or not to move down the list recommending Accounting, English as a Second Language, and Administrative of Justice/Child Development the positions to be hired. There was some discussion concerning ESL enrollment numbers. Dean Fayek assured the members that the hiring committee to fill Accounting position was chosen and the Division was ready to move forward with hiring Accounting faculty member to be in place for Fall 2022. The majority of IPBT members voted to inform College Council that the next three positions from the prioritization list were to be hired: Accounting, ESL, and Administration of Justice or Child Development at the discretion of Dean Ramos.
