    Meeting Items

    Minutes Approval

    There was one amendment to the previous meeting notes and none to the agenda.

    Reflection Template Review

    The committee reviewed the Reflection Question template from 2015 and updated it for this year. There was still a question if the reflection encompasses one year or many. In the past, the reflection came after the Comprehensive Review and it was decided that this would be looked into further.

    It was also noted that even though the Reflection year and Comprehensive Review year have been switched, the Education Master Plan will proceed as scheduled.

    The draft Reflection Questions[BROKEN LINK] will be reviewed again at the next meeting.

    CAS Standards - follow-up

    LeBleu-Burns explained what the next steps were for the CAS implementation. CAS was discussed with the Student Services leadership team and the options to employ them for next year’s Comprehensive Review. The committee is in the middle of Plan A: Plan the Process and by the end of the quarter will send out the next-steps in the process. They will include:

    • Provide a copy of the CAS book to review as well as the functional guides for each area
    • Review the corresponding Assessment Guide to narrow down the questions each area would like to use.
    • Formulate and answer questions groups may have about the new process and materials.

    Guided Pathways Update

    Galoyan updated the group on Guided Pathways. The Six Meta-Majors have been established and now they are working on the “villages” or communities for these majors. Lydia and Kim are taking the recommendations and sending them out for feedback from those who are currently in the “village.” Student Services is very involved in the process and three classified staff have been added to the committee.

    Member & Program Updates
    • Tran thanked everyone who attended the DASB Townhall that was held last Friday. They had  good student turn out and the survey that was sent out afterwards reflected that the students thought it had good information and was helpful, so overall very successful.
      • The 2021-22 DASB general elections are open and 5 seats have been given priority for Black and Latinx students. DASB Senators voted to keep all 30 seats with an additional 5 seats for equity.

    • The Classified Senate did not meet last week and their next meeting is set for December 8th.

    • ACE did not hold a meeting in November due to the holiday so their next meeting will be held on December 9th.

    • Glapion reported from Academic Senate and they have continued the discussion of part-time faculty serving as Faculty Advisors for ICC clubs.
      • A resolution was presented that a part-time member would have a co-advisor that would need to be full-time faculty. Part-time faculty felt that this marginalized them so the discussion continued regarding risk, loss of PT assignments affecting clubs, etc.

    • Shively reported from FA and they are still waiting for the State budget to be released. They have created an Equity task force to address the contractual matters that tend to arise in this area and they are working on some flex-days for winter and spring quarters for Dr. Joy DeGruy training.

    • Booye reported that EOPS have 215 applications for winter quarter that are being reviewed. Orientations are being set-up and conducted for the new students.
      • EOPS also put together a "mixer” that included a scavenger hunt, games, etc. It was very successful and they will be doing more of these events in the future.

    • Kobata mentioned that they have started a student Athlete Support Group to assist students during this stressful time with the pandemic and not being able to train on campus.

    • Galoyan reported that ISP will begin drop-in sessions in the winter quarter. In Admissions & Records, drop-ins started with around 10-20 students per 3-hour session and steadily increased to 50-60 the next week, and to about 80 students the week after. They hold two 3-hour sessions a week, about 160 students total, and they are receiving good feedback regarding this new service.

    • Mandy is working on the Promise Grants and Financial Aid has started their workshops and their drop-in sessions. They will track the data to see how these are working for students. She is also working on the CARES Act proposal as well.

    • LeBleu-Burns wanted to mention that Melinda Hughes has been awarded the Roueche Excellence Award from the League of Innovation. Galoyan reported that Casie Wheat also was awarded the Roueche Excellence Award from the League of Innovation.

    • Mieso noted that this was the last meeting of the year and wished everyone a restful and happy holiday.

    Good of the Order
