It was noted that Financial Aid (BFAP), EOPS and DSPS programs (categorically funded) funding would be adversely affected by further reductions.

Everyone asked to share information with others.

Next steps include

- Determine what can be done to offset the reductions with technology by reviewing 1) what we have to do, 2) what we can do and 3) what we won’t be able to do.

- Review programs for duplication of services at the college and between the colleges; consider consolidations.

Everyone is encouraged to provide SSPBT or Cook with suggestions of ways to make do with less.
