Welcome Back/Introductions
Susan Cheu, Vice President Finance & College Operations. Discussed how Finance and Financial Aid were able to work together to get book vouchers to students during the first week of classes.
Suggestion - Start working with Finance to add features to the DASB card and having book vouchers available to students before the quarter begins.

Financial Aid – Dispersed $1.3 million more at the beginning of this year than last year. Assisted 7200 students during the first couple of days of this quarter. Increased automation in the Financial Aid process. Working on a Financial Literacy website and default prevention services to assist students.

International Student Program – 540 brand new students started this Fall 2014 quarter.

Student Development – Very active in assisting students with transfer applications that are due in
the next couple of months.

Student Services Office – Researching newsletters to help with communication between departments.

Many SSPBT members term has ended and we are currently looking for replacements for those who did not continue. Just a brief orientation today. One of the main goals of these meetings is to share information and then bring back feedback to the group. The team comes together to work on problems and take care of items that need to be resolved.

Student Success Support Program
Reviewed and discussed draft of SSSP Report.
 Members volunteered to provide leadership and develop plans on how to implement core
 components of the the SSSP plan. The teams will develop working groups with 6-8 members. It
 is recommended that these groups include students as well. Each team leader will develop the
 mapping process of the implementation and the collection and reporting of clean data.

  1. Orientation – Claros
  2. Assessment – Mieso
  3. Counseling, Advising, and Education Planning Services – LeBleu-Burns
  4. Follow-up/At Risk Students – Burgos
  5. Technology – Mandy

 Continued with overview of SSSP Report. Need to work on capturing data for the various groups
 we support; this can lead to more funding.

Meeting Dates
We may start to meet every week this quarter. If there is no agenda set, then it is recommended that you meet with your individual groups instead.
