    Meeting Items

    Check In – Introduction of Guests 

    King opened the meeting to introduce the classified staff representatives on the College President Search Committee: Melissa Aguilar, Tony Santa Ana, Erika Flores, as well as Sushini Chand and Deborah Taylor (not in attendance). 

    Approval of Agenda and Approval of Minutes 

    Quorum was not met, so no vote to approve any Agendas or Minutes. 

    College President Search Opinion Survey Results 

    The general idea of process was explained: Focus groups, 20 seats, faculty/classified, 17 seats filled. Chancellor Judy Miner will craft a draft job description, which the search committee gets to see. Then, the search committee generates interview questions, and put forward recommendations. November 14th, the Search Committee participants become like a sequestered jury. More staff will be involved when we get to rejoin the conversation for Town Halls. In addition, staff will be invited to write to the Board of Trustees and Judy Miner.  

    Mascot Update 

    Spatafore announced that the mascot selection is near to the last stage. The opinion survey (4100 total respondents, including 3000 students) has been completed, and the college came away with pretty clear choices: Wildcats, Lions, Mountain Lions, Bears, Grizzlies, Diamond Backs (Sun Devils removed due to copyright issues). Wildcats were top choice. 

    Standing Committee and Shared Governance Reports 
    • Just revised everything, checked our charge. Marilyn is co-chair with Rob Mieso.
    • SSLO presentations. Voted to move forward on two faculty positions: Veterans & General Counseling, both Counselors.
    • Talked about College Promise. Nothing too extensively.
    • A review of the facilities master plan, including a mention of housing in the future. Visit the Community Benefit Initiative (CBI) updates page for more informaiton. 
    • Program review date was moved up to Feb 3rd, 2020.
    • Email Marilyn with items you’d like forwarded to SSPBT

    We’re moving the program review timeline up. We want folks to remember the prior year. Trying to narrow a two-year spread to making the funding closer to “real time.” Streamline, make user friendly. 

    Board Meeting

    Large discussion around student housing. Our students feel an immediate need. All of our current plans are long term. The district is pushing to get on the March 3rd ballot for a bond measure and a parcel tax. They have to file the first week of December for the March 3rd primary. 

    Good of the Order 

    Harrell noted that we need to agendize the Adhoc committees.   

    King reported that ClassiFridays are going well. 

    Meeting adjourned at 3:30 pm
