Veterans - Several counselors recently attended a Veterans Conference and have gained a better understanding of what veterans are dealing with emotionally and physically. 

Discuss Potential Proposals for Assessment Cycle Projects – Suggestion that SS areas brainstorm ideas and combine requests, application deadline is October 30. Ideas for funding requests – focus groups with students - are we achieving the SLOs commitments, which would help with assessment and SLOs. Follow up focus groups with forums, i.e. DSS - Are students getting transfer information, survey data from Degree Works, then follow up with focus groups. Suggestion - an ad hoc committee compile a list prior to the October 30 deadline (LeBleu-Burns, Glapion, Haynes, Chung, Caballero de Cordero).
