Courses Into Disciplines and Faculty Service Area (FSA) Review—Intercultural/International Studies (IIS) and Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH)
- Physical Education FSA review no changes, per Arden. According to M. Donahue there was no distribution
- Women’s studies FSA review - Marc has emailed changes to Paul, everyone in Women’s Studies had opportunity to give input
- Social Sciences and Humanities FSA review three departments/programs have not yet completed their review; will be completed by next week. Mylinh has the requested changes for those who did complete by today.
Proposal for Academic Senate Equity 4 Excellence MiniGrants Application (2 nd discussion)
- Mary Donahue voiced concern about faculty not getting their $50 reimbursed if they spend it before confirming that funds are still available.
- Kim Palmore noted, per FA consultation, that faculty are allowed to meet with students off campus. If this minigrant funded by the Academic Senate is limited only to oncampus coffee/lunch, it is our choice to fund it with that limitation, but she wanted to make it clear that this is not a general requirement of facultystudent engagement. She also voiced concern about the requirement of a minimum of two students because of confidentiality issues. Karen Chow and Jim Nguyen noted that if there is a confidentiality concern, faculty who wish to apply for the minigrant should contact them directly to discuss.
- Discussion ensued regarding using funds for on and off campus eateries/cafes and whether they should be limited to campus only, or more widely to greater Cupertino.
- Mary Sullivan motioned to approve the Academic Senate Equality 4 Excellence Minigrant proposal as presented with no changes, and also $1000 contribution from the Academic Senate funds. Cheryl seconds, no objections, two abstentions (Kim Palmore and Paul Klingman); Motion passed.
ADMJ Course Prerequisite Approval (1 st Reading)
- Erik presented a Powerpoint on the context of the ADMJ course that initiator Jim Suits has requested a Prerequisite change for. The request is to change the prerequisite for ADMJ 56 to EWRT 211 or its equivalent. See the final Powerpoint slide for what was asked of Academic Senate to consider.
Support For Noncredit Courses
- Randy Bryant (Auto Tech faculty & CTE Institutional Advancement CoChair) presented a Resolution directing Academic Senate to form an ad hoc committee on Noncredit courses
Some rationales Randy presented:
- Enhanced non credit could serve some populations we are both serving and not currently serving.
- First reading: the resolved would create an ad hoc committee for developing noncredit courses at the college
- Maria Delas: this is long overdue many students just want to work and get some skills.
- Randy Bryant: this could be a pathway to building credit enrollment as students start in noncredit and get introduced to general education and traditional pathways
AP 5011 Admissions and Concurrent Enrollment of High School and Other Young Students (2 nd reading)
- several concerns about this AP 5011 were brought forth in writing by Maria Delas and Karen read responses to those concerns written by Mayra Cruz
- some questions arose around parental and faculty rights as they relate to underage students at the college
- John Walton: so many questions have been raised, how can we train faculty in this area
- Karen Chow: In the same way that the state seems to be moving in the direction of noncredit courses, it seems to also be moving towards concurrent (dual) enrollment as well. This AP 5011 is based upon wording in cited Ed Code sections.
- Rob Clem motioned to approve this AP 5011, Marc Coronado seconded. No objections, one abstention (Palmore), Motion passed
AP 5012 College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) (2 nd Reading)
- Discussion of this AP 5012 was scant, but a few Senators expressed difficulty with understanding all the implications of establishing CCAP (College and Career Access Pathway) agreements on issues such as course offerings and teaching assignments
- Chow will bring back this AP and wording for MOUs that we want as a senate to see what/how the partnerships could be set up. We would like to see who the designee from the campus is first.
The Instructional Planning and Budget Team (IPBT)’s Division and Department presentations/dialogue session on Friday 3/9 was discussed by Jim Nguyen and others. All Senators who attended and/or presented agreed it was a collegial dialogic process that even offered some helpful suggestions to departments about enrollment and growth strategies. Mary Donahue asked when the questions presented to Divisions/Departments and the responses submitted by Divisions/Departments to IPBT would be posted to the IPBT website. Jim said he will check with Olga Evertshould be soon.
Cheryl Balm publicly thanked and acknowledged Karen Chow’s work on the AB 705 workgroup and helping Math and English and ESL faculty/departments understand the implementation guidelines that are coming. Chow expressed appreciation for acknowledgement.
Good of the Order and Appreciations
