What does “De Anza College” represent to you?

  • Circulate revised or reaffirmed mission, vision and strategic initiatives to governance groups for adoption in early fall 2018
  • Provide feedback to your college planning committee representative or to newelmallory@deanza.edu.

You can review the enrollment trends and other information that was used for this presentation on the Institutional Research & Planning website.

Full Presentation

There is also a Food, Housing, and Transportation Insecurity Survey currently out and the results can be presented at another SSPBT meeting.

Program Review Discussion

It was decided that everyone would use the current template in the TracDat/Nuventive system. Just choose the 2017-18 year from the drop-down list box and update the sections for this year. It is recommended that you save often as you enter the information and have a back up document as well.

Program & Committee Updates

Tanubrata reported on DASB

  • DASB is looking into a student discount at businesses around campus by using the DASB Student ID card. Booye mentioned that the ToGo’s across the street has one if you show them your card.

Mieso reported that the Open House had good participation this year and went well.

Budget Update

At the next SSPBT meeting we will be addressing the additional budget request from the District. Due to this addition, the College Council deadline will be pushed back and the budget page will be updated when we receive this new date.

An additional amount of 1.2 million was added to the original amount of 2.2, making the Student Services budget request total 3.4 million. De Anza was asked to contribute 8.8 million total.
