    SSPBT Priorities - Student Development Presentation

    Student Development includes:  

    1. EOPS/CARE
    2. Occupational Training Institute (OTI)
    3. Office of College Life
    4. Health Services
    5. Psychological Services

    Student Judicial Affairs was not included in this list due to functionality of this area and not being closely related to the areas of focus of the CORE Priorities.

      • EOPS provides resources for basic needs to their students that includes electronic gift cards so students can buy groceries, gas cards, book vouchers and computers.
      • They anticipate about 140 students will receive their AA/AS degrees and 120 students will transfer to 4-year universities at the end of this academic year.

    • Occupational Training Institute (OTI)
      • The CompTechS Program provided computers to low-income students and also trained and placed students in internships with Silicon Valley high-tech companies.
      • CalWORKs, in collaboration with Santa Clara County, purchased computers, various wi-fi services and provided additional funding for basic needs.

    • Office of College Life (OCL)
      • In collaboration with ETS, they created a digital ID card that is accessible to students through their MyPortal account.
      • They were also able to provide digital bus passes through the Ezfare app during the pandemic in collaboration with ETS and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA).
        • This service was provided through the pandemic only and the card is now picked
          up at the OCL office.

    • Student Health Services
      • Health Services integrated and implemented the vaccination records module in the PyraMed Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system for monitoring COVID vaccinations and exemption testing requirements for De Anza, Foothill and Central Services.

    • Psychological Services
      • Conducted the Healthy Minds national study to gain insight into the mental health needs of De Anza Students.
      • They currently are implementing TimelyMD to provide free 27/7 crisis counseling and scheduled counseling sessions with a licensed mental health professional.

    Mieso thanked LeBleu-Burns for the presentation and for connecting how items such as the Flea Market contribute to student success and the core priorities. The Flea Market generates revenue that contributes to the DASG budget, which is part of the allocation every year to provide financial support to various programs and services on campus that support student retention and success.

    • Yi-Baker also wanted to add that they are updating the rental bike program and converting 20 bikes to e-bikes. Starting this fall they could have these e-bikes ready for students to use to and from campus.

    All of the presentations will be posted on the new SSPBT Core Priorities webpage.
