    Approve Notes from March 11, 2021

    The notes were approved.

    Budget: Current Model and Process for Upcoming Years- continue

    Holmes highlighted the importance of understanding budget and its priorities as an institution and how to meet those priorities with a limited amount of dollars. Holmes suggested hosting a townhall collegewide discussion in regard to the budget in the future. Chow mentioned having a single budgeting team for the college that can take a more global view on budget, including contracts, full-time and part-time faculty, student wages, etc. to better understand where our dollars are going to. Holmes emphasized how critical it is we understand the college budget.

    Governance Group Taskforce- Continued

    The Taskforce group has had one meeting. It has been brough to their attention the need for affinity groups representation. The taskforce group is committed to checking in with affinity groups, however one concern expressed by various constituency groups is to assure that this Taskforce group has fair representation from students, classified professionals, academic senate, affinity groups and ongoing discussion on who makes up this taskforce group.

    Attendees further discussed on representation in the group as there appeared to be no representation from serving external constituents, including local non-student community. Holmes acknowledged lack of representation from various groups when looking at the membership list and stressed the importance of having conversations around the missing areas and how to fill in the gaps. He also reminded individuals that the names were submitted by their constituencies and that this is an ongoing process. CC members agreed to include affinity groups and will submit names to Laureen Balducci. Holmes noted that when talking about college governance, representation from all areas is not always possible.

     DA Governance Taskforce- Update

    The group is still collecting information. They aim to dive deeper on budget process, research other colleges shared governance structures and explore using the partnership resource team to assist DA with ideas on developing an effective plan on shared governance process. Martin Varela will attend the next meeting. More information on timeline, goals, principles and actions can be found on agenda item link.

    LGBTQ+ Survey - Results Presentation

    Chesa Caparas presented data gathered through the survey.

    Attendees thanked Caparas for working with students, gathering important information and the great data presentation. As well as addressing and highlighting mental health, attendees mentioned the difficulties of finding qualified therapists and the need for more resources to better serve students in need as the demand grows.

    Faculty Hires for 21-22 Academic Year

    IPBT members voted to prioritize nine positions directly focused on equity from a list of 15 open positions where 11 were funded. These 9 positions make a foundation for their equity work.

    Espinosa-Pieb shared concerns from attendees at their meeting of how quick the vote was conducted and highlighted that moving forward they will not follow this process, but rather allow all groups to discuss, take information back to their constituents and then vote. Attendees highlighted that concerns expressed at the meeting were not about the decision but more about the process.

    Espinosa-Pieb asked for approval to move forward.

    CC members voted on and approved the 9 positions presented.

Attendees expressed concerns about placement of Art structure and accessibility when it comes to facilities. Mahato shared that it is mandatory to do this planning every 5 years, mentioning the process of identifying and prioritizing projects based on limited budgeting. Mahato highlighted that this plan recognizes opportunities as a larger concept and it is a requirement to have this plan to keep up to date with certain plans.
